A Greenville, South Carolina family's dog has been voted the worst in the nation.
Lucy, an 11-month-old Husky mix, has established quite a reputation.
Lucy beat out several hundred other dogs for the title of "Worst Dog In America" in the first ever "Bad to the Bone" contest.
For winning the distinction Lucy's going to reform school, courtesy of Camp Bow Wow.
Trainer Patty Honkala is trying to teach lucy lady-like behavior.
"All the behaviors that she has, all of these naughty things she does are extremely common," Honkala says.
Far from a lost cause, her owners see her as a loyal friend who's made some mistakes.
Lucy is a rescue from the Greenville Humane Society.
In addition to free obedience training, she will also get free daycare and playtime at Camp Bow Wow for a year.
