In an overcrowded shelter, where no one came to adopt him, the friendly dog’s only crime was having a mild case of mange and a heartless owner who had abandoned him. As the sweet dog was led quietly into the euthanasia room, Lucky sensed something terrible was about to happen, and as he was lifted up and placed on the table to be prepared for the fatal shot of a concentrated solution of poison into his arm, he would not hold still.

The shelter staff was so emotionally moved by Lucky’s ardent efforts to survive, they reached out to partner rescue organizations asking for help. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC  volunteered, and one week later, Lucky is safe and sound in the Big Apple.

Now looking for his “forever” home, Lucky is reported to be great with children and other dogs. Lucky euthanized headed 3He has not been cat tested. Interested in adopting a great dog with an amazing story? Click here for adoption information.
