Bridgette has been in our shelter for 1 year now. She loves to be with easy-going dogs and seems to thrive being one of a pack. She is, however, not very inter-active with people. She will come up for a treat, but then goes about her business; she is not a cuddly girl, wanting your undivided attention, a much more independent gal. She will need just the right home, with patience to watch her blossom.
She is 4-5 years old, a solid 45 lbs, probably lab mix, maybe some rotti or shepherd in there, also. Bridgette likes to bark, a lot, to get attention. So, a great dog trainer visited her and volunteers to find what works best to train her to not have to bark as much. She seems to catch on quickly that being quiet gets her a treat, so she is learning good habits she’ll be able to carry on at home.
She can not be around cats, nor small children. But give her a couple of dog mates, and she is truly happy. She loves to go for walks and adores squeaky toys, which she immediately tries to destroy. She is heartworm negative and on prevention, up to date on vaccines and dewormings, and already spayed.
You can get an adoption application in advance if you’d like. Applications are available at our shelter or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and requesting one.
