Luca is a velvet-smooth Labrador-mix weighing in at under 40 pounds, but his adorable personality is a hundred times bigger. 

He was found as a stray and turned in to Broward County Animal Care and was almost paralyzed with fear until he discovered that when he was around other dogs, his fears disappeared, and he became more relaxed and a great deal happier. 

Currently, in a foster home with three other dogs, including a small dog, Luca is well-mannered, sweet, and affectionate.  He has no idea about personal space and will be as close to you as possible at all times, so if you appreciate a complete lack of privacy, big sloppy kisses, and an entertaining repertoire of yoga poses while sleeping, he is definitely the dog for you. 

If you would like to meet Luca and make him part of your family, please contact his rescue or email
