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 -  Jan 15, 2016:

Just Janey: Janey is a beautiful sweet timid 1 year old girl who is slowly coming out of her shell. Today she decided she didn't like being alone in her crate and den so she sought me out back in the bedroom. While she wanted to jump up on the bed with me, she decided lying on the dog bed at the foot of the bed was better. Janey needs a family with a confident dog who can help her with her insecurities and a fenced in yard. She loves romping with her foster siblings and you can see the joy that she will one day experience with people. She has begun playing with toys and will "sneak" them into her crate so the other dogs can't get them. She also loves peanut butter and nylabones.  If you think you might be Janey's special family, contact your AC to meet her. She is definitely worth it.

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.
