Pet Pals: Meet Lucy!

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

This week's Pet Pal is "Lucy."

This sweet girl is a 2-year-old American bulldog mix looking for a forever family.

She's very affectionate and playful. She has lots of energy and knows plenty of tricks, including sit, stay and down.

She'd love a yard to run in and rope toys for tug-of-war and tennis balls for games of catch.

If you'd like to take Lucy home call The Humane Society of Southern Arizona at 520-327-6088.

HSSAZ will also host their annual "Sweat for Pets" event on Sunday, Oct. 22, on the UA Mall.

For more information on the competitive walk/run visit http://bit.ly/2yAm1yn.

    The study found that owners of hunting breeds like terriers, retriever and scent hounds got the most protection, but the study's senior author said that owning any dog was enough to reduce an owner's risk of death.
