An 11-month-old Greenville, South Carolina Husky mix has the dubious distinction of beating out hundreds of contenders to be named Worst Behaved Dog in Camp Bow Wow’s national “Bad to the Bone” contest.
Nicknamed “The Destroyer” Lucy has managed to destroy anything she puts her mind to destroying. When she was 6 months old, her owner, Eve Memmbe, said Lucy had enough of the crate and finally chewed her way to freedom. According to Memmbe Lucy has failed training sessions.
The picture of Lucy looking at the crate she had destroyed and the story that went with it, “Prison Break” won her the title.
Lucy will receive a year’s worth of free training at a Camp Bow Wow, a national doggie daycare franchise. Source
Undoubtedly the trainers will reveal the closely guarded secret for correcting bad dog behavior: exercise and mental stimulation.
It always amazes me when people get large, high energy puppies like Huskies or shepherd dogs and expect them to stay in a crate and play solitaire when they would much prefer pulling a dog sled, chasing sheep, or going for a long walk until they’re ready to crash.
