Genie ~ Labrador Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog/Bull Terrier ~ Spayed Female ~ 2 years
I am a gentle giant about 60 lbs. I am very sweet and I love being pet. If you are standing I will learn right into you. If you are sitting, do not mind if I stand right on top of you to get as much love as I can. I do get very excited with toys and will run after them and may jump a little. I am curious and like to explore, this includes your counter tops. I’ll be happy to work on improving that. I am crate trained. I have had a tough life so far: In Texas, I was picked up by animal control living life as a stray with puppies in tow. I’ve been through heartworm treatment. I was adopted into a wonderful home in Texas but my person had to give me up due to severe allergies. He said that I was “his best friend”. I’ve made the journey to the Northeast where my chances of finding a loving home were better than in the overpopulated South. I am ready to find my new home that will keep me safe and love me. I hope the hard times will soon be over. The staff at Dakin believes I will be good with other dogs (I’m very polite with the dogs I’ve met here) and will do well in a home with any age children. I’d like to meet the whole family before going home.
