She looks healthy, very well nourished and is dressed in a well groomed ebony coat. Lucy comes at the call of her given name and sits immediately on command, treats or no treats. She is very obedient… She eats very politely from my hand. Lucy’s hallmark is her congeniality with people and dogs alike but also her love for humans.
