Dog Who Was About to Be Adopted Refused to Leave Her Best Friend Behind


Lucy and Sully are as loyal as they come. They met at a shelter and became fast friends, even going to a foster home together. When someone was looking to adopt Lucy, it was made clear that these two were a package deal, so the woman adopted them both!

Not much is known about their histories.  Redhead Lucy came to the shelter when she was a few years old, and Sully was just a puppy when he arrived.  They hit it off, and Lucy loved Sully as if he was her own son.

Seven years ago, Alaina Brinton said goodbye to her senior dog, and was ready to open her heart to someone new a few months later.  Lucy caught her eye, so she called the shelter to see about meeting her.

“I saw a picture of Lucy at my local humane society and just had to meet her,” Brinton told The Dodo. “When I called, they said that she’d been fostered with another dog and they’d like for me to also meet her buddy. I figured there wouldn’t be any harm in seeing both.”

She certainly hadn’t set out to adopt two dogs, but realized how close Lucy and Sully were, and knew they’d be devastated to be without one another.  This wasn’t really a problem, because after meeting him, Brinton was charmed by Sully, too.

Both dogs were nervous in their new home, and greatly relied on each other to get through the scary change.

“I fell in love right away. Besides, it was obvious Sully was looking to Lucy to show him what things were or weren’t okay, and I wouldn’t have had the heart to split them up.”
