'We adopted Luce about a year ago, after seeing how well our friends were getting on with their WAHF dog, Pinky. Initially, we spotted a Shiba Inu, but Eve suggested we should have a look at Luce instead and we fell in love immediately.
She was so tiny when we picked her up from the airport but she immediately wanted to greet everyone. Licking everyone’s hands in the process. She was just so full of joy and slotted right in to our lives!
She completely charmed our dog walker after just a few days who takes her out at lunchtime every day while we are at work. We get asked what breed she is all the time but we don’t know! People often stop us on the street to tell us how adorable she is and once somebody even yelled from the other side of the street to compliment her!
Luce is very quiet and sometimes a bit timid. But, once she gets to know dogs/people, she’s more than happy to play. Often play fighting with dogs much bigger than her and she loves to run in circles on the beach. We had a few health issues, but nothing major. The hardest thing was toilet training, but we got there with patience and positive reinforcement.
Now she’s a major part of our family and weekend planning normally starts with “where shall we take Luce for a walk?” She has made us more active, we spend more time outside and we love exploring Scotland with her. She loves us (and chips, she especially loves chips) unconditionally and we love her (we like chips too).'
