POW! You’ll Do The Lindy Hop When You Meet This Lovable Terrier-Mix

Lucky Lindy was the name Charles Lindberg received after making the first solo airplane flight from New York to Paris in 1927. He became such an American hero that a swing dance was named after him called The Lindy. The word “hop” was added later.


Lindy is also a variation on the names Linda and Melinda meaning beautiful, pretty and sweet. (Lindy name — Wikipedia.) And all of these adjectives definitely describe little Lindy, KCAC’s almost 3-year-old Cairn Terrier-mix.

She originally came to KCAC when she was but a mere pup along with her other littermates. Returned by her original adoptive family due to one member not being totally on board with having a four-footed member in the house, Lindy is eager to find her new owners.

With her one ear pointing towards the North and her other ear bending towards the southern hemisphere, Lindy looks longingly into your face through her button eyes and implores you to take her home.

She gets very excited to meet and greet other dogs, wagging her tail throughout the entire experience. Eventually, she loses interest in the other canines, preferring to move on to play with her stuffed animals or receive an immense amount of attention from her humans.

As the cold winter months approach, Lucky Lindy would be the perfect companion to share your lap while you drink hot chocolate and settle down for a long winter’s nap.
