Testimonial from a Happy Adopter

Lucy is ridiculously smart—I’m convinced she understands the complete English language, and as a result she has us trained already. As you know she has quite the expressive personality and isn’t shy about letting us know what she wants and when she wants it. She does it in such a sweet way it’s never pushy—she just melts us!
