TailWaggers of the week: Slater & Lenore

Meet Slater and Lenore, a couple of the many great companions available at our local animal rescue groups.


In typical Husky fashion, Slater is eye-catching, headstrong, and too smart for his own good. This 2-year-old boy is housebroken, crate trained, and walks well on a leash (although he does pull like a husky). He knows sit and is polite when inside and hangin' with his person.

Slater is looking for a dog experienced person who knows how to read dog body language. He is a happy dog, but takes some time to trust and does not like people to just take things that he considers "his" from him. Slater would be best suited for a home where it's just him and "his" people.

Slater is up to date on vaccines, neutered, microchipped, and weighs about 66lbs. If you're interested in adopting Slater, please submit an application with Lucy's Hope Sanctuary & Rescue at www.lucyshoperescue.com. You can also message them on the Lucy's Hope Sanctuary & Rescue FaceBook page or send them an email at lucyshope@yahoo.com to learn more about this handsome guy.

Adoption includes a 30 to 60-day foster-to-adopt period to make sure that he's a good fit and the rescue covers all of Slater's training and medical during this time.


As you can see from her before picture, Lenores life wasn’t the best up until recently. Her previous owners were neglectful and allowed her to get to a terrible state of mange and multiple skin infections that have taken months to treat. She was a recent mother but sadly her previous owners claimed the puppies had all passed away. Lenore roamed the neighborhood as a very sweet and friendly girl who seemed to just want attention and love. She loves all humans on sight.

Lenore enjoys a consistent schedule of walks, food and lots of love and is looking for that from her future human(s). If you have a patient and loving approach she will learn new tricks in a flash since she is very food motivated. She loves playing tag with her foster fur-brothers and sisters but needs a private meal time in her crate which she doesn't mind one bit and happily goes into on command. She may get a little excited and want to hug you when she hasn't seen you in a bit, but all she needs is just some calm understanding energy until she gets her wiggles out.

Lenore walks like a dream on leash and loves exploring the outdoors with her human. She is dog and cat friendly (her 5 foster siblings in all sizes agree!), but she does need slow introductions to new non-reactive dog friends as she can get nervous and forget her manners. Lenore is just learning that balls are the best toys because toys were foreign to her before her foster home. A patient and caring future human who is familiar with proper socializing would be her absolute perfect fit. She has all the love to give and just wants to snuggle all day with you if possible!

Save a life

Most Tucson animal rescue groups are small, volunteer-based nonprofit organizations that rely on the community to fulfill their mission to save animals' lives. Not only do they count on donations from the public to cover costs, they depend on people who are willing to open their hearts and homes to needy animals until they are ready for adoption. If you are interested in saving a life by becoming a foster, please contact a local rescue group today.
