Janey (#150472)

Janey is an 18 month old spayed yellow female who is petite at only 40 pounds. She is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Janey is timid with people but does great with other dogs. She is unknown with cats and is approved for ages 10 and up. She does well in the crate, on the leash and in the car.  Janey is from the country and unaccustomed to the noise of densely populated ares so she will do best in a quiet setting in a rural or suburban area. She must go to a home with a confident companion dog who will show her the ropes.

Update from Janey's foster -  Oct 30, 2015:

 Janey is doing better all the time. She loves all the girls that come in and work with her foster throughout the week and is building trust all the time. While she is still cautious, she will seek out a pet or a rub at times and especially if she thinks a treat is involved - she loves treats! She LOVES playing with the other dogs and loves toys but can be very calm and really loves to hang out in her crate with the door open and observe the world inside. She is searching for that person that will give her the time and space she needs to blossom and shine - is that you?? 

Oct 28, 2015:

Janey is still making progress. She is seeking attention and loving from her foster more as time progresses. She is searching for a patient, kind family to help her finish her transformation. Her favorite thing is to play with the other dogs and when she is doing that she has no fear, only fun. Humans are the scary thing for her but she is learning that they are not all bad! Won't someone open you home and give her the chance to continue to grow and trust.....

Resources for Adopters

Thank you for adopting a lab from Lab Rescue of the LRCP.  Every year we find special homes like yours for hundreds of labs and along the way we have learned a lot that we hope can help you too. This section of our website is just for you and we hope it contains useful tips that can make the transition to your home move smoothly.

Remember that relationships don't just happen.  They take time and effort and along the way there may be bumps in the road.  That's to be expected but there are things that you can do to ease everyone's transition.  Don't be surprised by the occasional naughty behavior; it's normal.

If you have a question that doesn't appear in our resources section then please reach out to your adoption coordinator and he or she can get you the answers that you need.
