After discussing this rather nasty habit with your vet & all your friends who will listen, you will many of the same excuses: the dog is lacking is nutrients and/or vitamins, the dog may have worms, the dog is obsessive/compulsive, etc. But let the truth be told: SOME DOGS JUST LIKE IT! They like the taste, they like the texture, & they like beating you to the pile of poop to eat it before you can scoop it!
(however, in some cases it is true that malnourished/emaciated dogs will do this in an effort to stay alive & it might become a habit after all is said & done. but was your dog ever in this state?)
Oh, & as for ALL the "treatment" recommendations out there, I've tried them all on my 2 poop eaters. And NOTHING worked!
My advice? Scoop your yard several times a day & don't allow any facial kisses from those disguisting beasts.

One other possibility with Lucy, since she's a BYB pup, maybe the breeder kept the pups in crowded dirty pens? Not trying to say he did but that can cause a pup to learn to eat its stool.
Har har nice try
She was kept in a fenced 10 acre yard with her mom and dad.
