If you think your dog is bad, you'll want to meet Lucy.
Eleven month old Lucy is a husky-shepherd-lab mix, adopted from the Greenville Humane Society and she won a national contest as the worst behaved dog.
Camp Bow Wow is a national doggy daycare chain that hosted a competition called "Bad to the Bone." They asked people across the country to send in pictures and videos of their dogs with stories of how naughty they have been. Facebook users and professional judges voted.
The winner was from Greenville.
By the time she was 6 months old, her owner, Eve Memmer, said she had enough with her crate. Lucy did everything possible to get out, and one time, even chewed through it. It was that photo, of the dog looking at the crate she destroyed, that Memmer posted to Facebook, and named, "Prison Break." That picture and story won Lucy the "worst behaved" title. Memmer said now that she's a little older, she's a little better, but still chews on anything soft she can find.
"We have some pillows on the sofas that we call sacrificial pillows," Memmer said. "She chewed the end of those, so it's not really the bad stuff like the wood furniture, but if she wants to destroy something, she will put her mind to it and she will destroy it."
Trainers at Camp Bow Wow said Lucy's behavior is pretty typical of energetic puppies, but there are plenty of methods to train her, or any dog that needs a little discipline.
For winning the contest, Lucy gets a year stay at the doggy daycare, and free training.
