Pet of the Week: Lacey

Get to know her: Lacey is being featured a second time because she is still looking for a home. She’s a sweet, gentle 8-year-old girl who was found wandering on a South Carolina beach. Lacey’s confident, easy going and smart and adores getting pats, making friends, gentle walks, car rides, wading in the water and sharing her toys.

Being a senior, she has mellowed out but still has a spark and enjoys exploring new places and occasionally chasing her foster brother. Like many older folks, she has some arthritis but it doesn’t keep her from jumping in the car, traversing rocks by the river and jumping over a log or two in the woods – just all in moderation. Lacey likes everyone: dogs, cats and children and is good for seniors. She is spayed, micro-chipped and current on all her vaccines. She does require medicine to keep joint pain and skin allergies in check.

For more information: German Shepherd Rescue and Adoption is a nonprofit organization of volunteers committed to offering care and adoption services to neglected, stray or surrendered German Shepherds. The group is based in Raleigh and works in the Carolinas and Virginia. While in the care of GSRA, shepherds are spayed or neutered in addition to having other medical needs addressed. They are placed in foster homes to be nurtured, loved and housetrained. Foster parents learn each dog’s temperament and work on obedience and behavior training, allowing the dog to be placed in an environment best for both the dog and the adopter. Adoption fees are $250.
