Our blustery Lucky is a big beautiful fluffball, who is convinced that he is the Emperor of Everything. He came to us from one of our American Eskimo rescue contacts in Houston, Texas, after his adopter backed out of his adoption, once it determined that he was heartworm positive. The Houston Eskie rescue folks had pulled Lucky for this particular adopter, and did not have the space to accommodate him after she backed out.

And so we flew lucky to Connecticut and began his heartworm treatment. He is truly a magnificent dog, and, fortunately, his heartworm load was very low, and tests revealed that his heart was not compromised in any way. We were able to start treatment immediately, and he's come through it beautifully. Our Vet has pronounced Lucky "good as new," and he is now ready for adoption.

Lucky appears to be is a striking mix of Great Pyranees and German Shepherd, and at 80 pounds, he is a one impressive dude! He is a large, strong dog, with a full, bushy, white coat, and one floppy ear. Two years old, he has a youthful vigor and would do well in an active home, with folks who enjoy an outdoors lifestyle. He is a high energy dog, who needs alot of vigorous exercise to work off his yayas. He loves the outdoors, particularly snow, and would be the ideal running, walking or hiking companion. If underexercised, Lucky can become bored and frustrated, so this boy is definitely not a candidate for a laid back lifestyle.

Strong, Alpha leadership is the key to Lucky. He needs an experienced adopter, who exudes confidence and can command his respect. As a double dose of hardwired working breeds, Lucky needs mental stimulation as well as physical activity. He seems to consider his training regimen as his job, and takes pride in excellent performance. He is surprisingly easy to train, and since arriving in foster care, he has mastered all of his basic obedience commands. He works for both praise and treats, so adopters will be able to use basic commands to communicate instantly with Lucky, and assert their pack leader status. Lucky would be a great fit for folks who enjoy obedience work. He will astound them!

As an Alpha dog, Lucky would be best suited to an adult home, maybe with teenagers, who are all on the same page about maintaining his exercise and training regimen. Once he is settled into his pack dynamic, Lucky is an exceptionally fun dog, full of love and life, poised to thrill and delight his family. Due to his size and strength, we feel he would overwhelm toddlers, older kids and cats, but he could coexist nicely with another dog after proper introduction.

Lucky is in excellent health, has been successfully treated for heartworm disease, and is neutered. He has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect the occasional accident as he transitions to a new home. Lucky is vaccinated for rabies, parvo, adrenovirus, distemper, coronavirus, leptopirosis. He has been dewormed, and has tested negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis.
