About Lucas

“Hi, I’m Lucas! I’m sweet and so very handsome, and can’t wait to meet you!” – xo, Lucas

Lucas had a rough start after being run over by a vehicle and suffering fractures to both his front limbs. He was fortunate to end up in AARCS’ care where he had his fractures repaired by an orthopedic surgeon. He is currently still on strict rest as his legs heal, but he enjoys his short trips outside (loves to eat snow and roll in it) and loves belly rubs and any sort of attention.

He still isn’t too sure about other dogs in his space, but we’ll keep working on that once his fractures are healed and he is able to have more normal interactions. Despite all he has gone through, Lucas always maintains his sweet demeanor, and has been an excellent patient.

He is a big, gentle boy, and has been quick to catch on to house training, crate training, and other house rules. Although he would much rather be with people than left alone, he has been so tolerant of being confined to his pen as he recovers. He is looking forward to the day when he’s told his legs are healed well enough to run in the yard, go for walks, and make new friends!

Do I Need Special Care?

Yes, Medical Special Needs - Two fractured front limbs that required plating by orthopedic surgeon. Currently still on crate rest. Risk of arthritis or complications due to plates in the future, as with any fracture repair, but should be able to resume normal activity once limbs are healed (Jan 2021). Would not recommend a home looking for a dog to do high intensity activities, but should be fine to go for long walks, etc.
