Can you imagine if your family moved and couldn't take you with them? That's what happened to Miss Lucy (formerly Sweet Potato). If you are looking for a loyal medium-size companion, Lucy is your gal!

Weighing in at 28 pounds, Lucy is the perfect "medium-size" dog. She's 2.5 years old so she's old enough to be past the puppy "chew everything up" and "potty in the house" phase but young enough to have lots of fun years ahead of her.

Lucy is a Jack Russel Terrier/Beagle mix. She can be shy at first, but with a little time to warm up, she is absolutely precious! Her previous adopters said that she played well at Doggie Daycare, has lots of energy, and loves to run, but is also a love bug and loves to snuggle. She is house-trained and crate-trained. Lucy does best with older kids. You are encouraged to bring your kiddos and dogs to meet and greet with Lucy or any dog you are thinking about adopting from WHS.

She is up to date on all vaccines, deworming, and flea/tick and heartworm prevention. She is spayed, heartworm negative, and microchipped!

If you're interested in Lucy or any of our other adoptable pets, please fill out an adoption application online at WHS hours are Wednesday-Thursday 12-7 and Friday-Sunday 12-4. You can find them at 5722 S Vann Rd, Newburgh IN 47630 about a mile past Castle High School.

Petting Zoos Within Driving Distance of the Tri-State

Anyone who knows me knows that I prefer animals over people most days. I tell my boyfriend all of the time that when we retire, I want a little plot of land with some cows, goats, pigs, chickens, and a whole lot of dogs. A girl can dream, right?
Sadly, since I can't have my own farm anytime soon, I guess I will settle for enjoying other people's animals, which means frequenting petting zoos and farms is pretty common for us. Luckily, I don't have to drive far to pet all the animals I can fit into a day.
From elephants to highland cattle to Clydesdales and a coatimundi, the tristate offers a wide variety of petting zoos that can be visited in a short day trip. Next thing you know, you'll be making your own list of animals to have on your own dream farm like me.
