NORTH FORSYTH — To see Lucy-Blue today, one would never know what the 4-year-old German shepherd mix has been through. Lucy, as she’s more commonly known, was turned over to the Humane Society of Forsyth County in December after being surrendered by her former owners to their veterinarian when she collapsed in the office during a visit. The dog was so starved, she couldn’t walk.
