Adopted Dog Refuses to Leave Pound Without Best Friend

Published

Lucy and Sully are dogs that are as close as they come. The best friend pooches met when they found themselves in the same shelter around the same time. When someone became interested in adopting Lucy, it was made clear to her that the two were a package deal.

Alaina Brinton lost her senior dog seven years ago. A few months after saying goodbye, she felt she was ready to take in another dog.

“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.”

Not much is known about redhead Lucy and Sully’s backstories. The first arrived in the shelter when she was a few years old, while the second came when he was just a puppy. Lucy and Sully’s owner never intended on adopting two dogs, but knew she couldn’t split the friends up after witnessing how close they were.

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

Although she was only looking to adopt Lucy, it wasn’t too much of an inconvenience since Sully was quite the charmer. “They’re buddies forever,” Brinton said. “Anytime they’re settling in together, Lucy will give Sully a couple of licks on his forehead and he just looks like he’s so pleased.”

Like many new pets, Lucy and Sully were a little nervous in their new environment. So, they relied greatly on each other during the transition.

It’s now been seven years since the friends moved into their adopted Kentucky home and their bond is as strong as ever.

“Even when he’s roaming around the dog park, Sully will come back and check on Lucy every couple of minutes or so,” Brinton said. “He says hi, walks with her for a bit, and then he’s off again. She doesn’t seem to mind.”

Lucy recently went missing. So, Sully must not have been keeping a close enough eye on his older friend that time. But, Lucy wasn’t gone long. While she isn’t as fast as Sully anymore, the good girl was still able to walk herself straight to the shelter.

Brinton explained that while they both aren’t as young as they used to be, Lucy and Sully “are still two peas in a pod.” Here’s a picture of them during their first car ride seven years ago.
