About Lucy

Lucy is a 1.5-yr-old female Border Collie/Shepherd mix. She was raised on a ranch with horses and cattle. She loves being outside. She has not experienced being an inside dog…but that’s okay in Texas…in Washington, she would need to come inside. She is a novice at going out in the world but she is sweet and affectionate. She is also very smart and can learn in a flash. She would be good for a family with kids and other dogs. She lived on the ranch with 5 other dogs. I would not recommend her for an apartment. She has medium activity level…about a 5…and would be good inside to chill and outside to hike and play. Lucy is spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, heart worm tested NEGATIVE and on heart worm prevention. She is available now to pre-adopt and she will arrive in the Northwest on July 11th. We have a 5-day trial period, so there is no risk in pre-adopting. Ask us how that works if interested. Please apply, please do not email us or call, we cannot do anything w/o an application that is completed in full. The more information you put in the applciation the better we can match up a great fit for you. If you are interested in this pup/dog, please fill out the application. The rescue will contact you once the application is received. Although we strive to answer everyone, due to the high volume of inquiries we receive, we cannot guarantee a response to all emails. Filling out the application is the best way and ensures a response from the rescue. In addition, while you are emailing us, if others apply, you can lose out adopting the dog you chose. We have a wide variety of puppies/ dogs available so there really is no need to apply anywhere else. However, if you are applying or have applied anywhere else, we do need to know that. Also, please note that we conduct adoption events almost every Saturday at noon at Pet Works in Olympia, Washington. If you would like to meet with us in person, please visit. SHANYE’S FOSTERS is a group of foster parents in the Olympia/Tumwater area. We foster dogs for rescues to assist them in adoptioning/rehoming of dogs by listing on this site. We donate all volunteers to assist in getting these dogs forever homes. All adoption fees go towards processing more dogs in need. No one receives a salary. Shayne’s Fosters is not responsible for any experience you have with any dog you might see posted on this site. They are the property of the sponsoring rescue who will supply all medical supporting records which is given with each dog when adopted. Our adoption fees cover all medical costs to make sure the pups are appropriately vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, and spayed/ neutered. It also covers the cost of transportation from Texas and the necessary health certificate documentation. The fees also include for any dogs over 6 months a negative heart-worm test. Some dogs/pups have additional medical, including but not limited to FHO, ACL, hernias, dental, and a myriad of other vetting. If the adoption fees seem high (which never cover the true cost of rescue), we recommend fostering for a good rescue. Fostering ensures you incur no vet bills and no boarding fees. We are always in need of good fosters. We are all volunteers who appreciate a good dog and feel they all need a 2nd chance at a good life. Adoption fees vary ($300 – $800) depending on age, breed, training, behavior, etc. Most are $400-$500. There are no additional fees, surcharges, or taxes added. Thank you for choosing to adopt a rescue pup/dog. Since worldwide over 1/2 billion puppies/dogs are PTS yearly and over 9,000/day just in U.S. shelters, yes even entire litters of puppies are PTS daily in many US shelters! Hence, we firmly believe there is NO breed other than rescue for all species. Thank you for being part of the village it takes to save these precious lives.
