Here at 97.3 The Dawg we're kind of a little partial to our four-legged furry friends. Yep, we love our pooches.

Unfortunately, there are more animals than you may imagine that need a good home. Shelters throughout Acadiana are sometimes overflowing with lovable, family friendly dogs that are just looking for someone to care and love them.

We decided to try to help out in this cause by getting more of these sweet babies adopted and/or fostered into loving homes.

In the video above you'll meet our buddy Lucky. He's been without a home for way too long. Someone has just got to want this sweet boy!

His name was given by a good Samaritan who rescued him back in 2015. At that time he was living on the streets and fending for himself. His ‘luck’ ran out when his family surrendered him to ARFLA a year later because they had no yard for him to romp around.

Lucky has since become a popular ARFLA figure as he regularly attends and does great at adoption events, fundraisers, radio and TV spots. He is an attractive young dog with many qualities: friendly, curious, playful, good with other dogs, good walker, runner, and car rider. He loves toys and a good game of fetch. Shows great agility skills too. Completely house and crate trained, he is well-mannered in a home environment and will show his sweet-side while welcoming affection.

So, why is Lucky still homeless? Lucky lacks confidence because he was not well socialized as a youngster. He can become anxious, reactive when outside his comfort zone, but he does find his confidence when he is out with people he trust. He needs practice meeting and accepting new people coming to his home. Lucky would do best in single household or a quiet home with some pet experience and a desire to continue his training.

You can also follow them on Facebook at Animal Rescue Foundation of Louisiana. They are currently looking for fosters, volunteers and sponsors at ARFLA.

You won't change the world by saving one animal, but you will change that animal's world!
