Smiley Shelter Dog Has Been Waiting Almost 2 Years to Make Someone Happy

“Lucy” is one of the country’s most popular dog names, so you’d think Lucy the California shelter dog would be a hit.

And she is, with the staff of Santa Barbara Humane Society, who describe her as a “happy” canine that loves to give “lots of kisses.”

The issue is, somehow, no adopters have fallen for this stunning sweetheart. Lucy has been at the shelter waiting for a forever home for almost 2 years, arriving at the facility in October 2015.

She has watched hundreds of dogs go home with happy families, all while keeping a smile on her face. The staff of the Santa Barbara Humane Society hopes that 5-year-old Lucy will be walking out of their door sometime soon too, even though they will miss her.

Shelter employees told PEOPLE that Lucy would do best in a home where she is the only pet, and she will certainly provide affection and loyalty to her forever family — wherever they are!
