Our Labs Available for Adoption

The labs listed on this page are always changing. Every day labs are adopted and new labs join us while they wait for their new forever home. If you are interested in adopting one of these labs from Lab Rescue, please fill out our adoption application and send it to us online (or by fax or mail). Lab Rescue of the LRCP asks that you read about the entire adoption process before submitting your application. We often receive questions about why so few labs are approved for young children. You can read about how we make that determination in the adoption process section of the website. Please note that the website is not the most up to date source of information. Some labs may have been adopted before the website shows them as adopted. 

Lab Rescue LRCP rescues and places dogs in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and northeast North Carolina (30 miles east of I-95 and north of the Pamlico Sound). Adopters must travel to Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC, with their family – human and canine – to meet the dog they want to adopt.

If you live outside of the Lab Rescue service area and would like to adopt, please review the list of rescues elsewhere in the country, available at www.thelabradorclub.com, do a  Google search on Lab Rescue and your location, or search on Petfinder.com or Adoptapet.com to find a rescue who places Labs near you.

Axel (#150901)

Axel is a 4 year old neutered black male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  He is good with other dogs and cats and is approved for kids aged 10 and up.  He weighs 123 lbs. He's a very docile pup who needs a family that will ensure he gets his medication to control seizures on time. Since being in Lab Rescue care and receiving his medications on time, Axel hasn't had any seizures.

Update from Axel's foster family - Jan 7, 2016:
Axel continues to be an easy addition to our home. He's been to the local park and been great on the leash in a new environment. Axel has a real interest in the water on the pool cover, we suspect he will really enjoy summer walks that lead to a stream or pond!

Update from Baby Girl's foster - 

Feb 8, 2016: Baby Girl enjoys going for walks around the neighborhood where she is always happy to meet new people. She barks at other dogs, so she will be best as the only dog and going to a family in a quiet neighborhood where she won't encounter a lot of dogs. She walks well on the leash. What she loves most is to hang out with her humans and take naps on her bed with her stuffed toys.

Bear (#150888) and Farley (#150889)

Bear and Farley are a bonded pair of 8 year old neutered chocolate boys. Bear weighs 86 pounds and Farley weighs 81 and each needs to drop about 5 pounds. They have lived together their whole lives and must be adopted together. They are sweet and affectionate, crate trained and house trained.  Both handsome boys enjoy meeting people and love attention. They are good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up. This good looking pair are current on vaccines and heartworm negative.

Update from the Bubbas' foster family - Jan 21, 2016:

NOT your father’s 8 year olds!!! The Bubbas (Bear and Farley) are a wonderful pair of bonded chocodrops who have quickly inched their way into our hearts. We have watched as their eyes have softened: first reflecting concern, then gratitude, then happy expectation. They had a rough stretch before being rescued by LR, crated together in a basement when their owner could no longer take care of them. They have proven resilient and appear very well adjusted. 

They absolutely love to retrieve the ball, run around outside (still developing muscle mass, we are sure) and be loved on. Initially our only real interaction was throwing the ball for them and having them return it, but that evolved into kisses and demands for belly scratches. They are still spending most of their time in the dog apartment while Bear recovers from a urinary tract infection, but get along just fine with the resident dogs, and are slowly learning how not to be “bulls in the china shop” when they come into the main house. They aren’t destructive, just large, active and curious when they come in. They are settling in the more time they spend with us. Farley takes stairs fine, but Bear is a bit hesitant- so far. They haven’t met the cats yet, but we do know they aren’t too keen on horses in blankets.

He will give a person a little lick once he becomes comfortable but is more free with affection to other dogs. Toby must be in a home with another non-dominant dog and a fenced yard. He needs a quiet environment where he can continue to gain confidence and learn to be happy again. His vision and hearing are somewhat impaired, but it doesn't slow him down. He is used to having company and not be left for a long work day. Toby doesn't like thunderstorms. Toby is housetrained and crate trained. He loves to go for walks. He's used to sleeping on the floor by his person's bed.
 
Colt and Toby were fostered together and each needed to be placed in a home with another dog.  They've become a bonded pair and need to be adopted together.

Update from Colt's foster mom - Sep 20, 2015:

Colt and Toby continue to charm everyone who meets them. During a recent visit, I was able to see how much this gentleman has blossomed in the time he's been with Lab Rescue. He is best buddies with Toby and they both enjoy going to the yard together, exploring, and then going back for another nap. They're absolutely precious together.

Dakota (#160025)

Dakota is a 73 pound black spayed female who is 7 years old and now retired from life as a breeder dog. She is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Dakota must go to a detached home in the suburbs or a rural setting and must live with at least one other dog. She is a sweet lady who is shy but warms up with some petting and loving. She is good with dogs and cats and approved for ages 10 and up. More to come as we get to know this pretty girl.

Update from Dakota's foster family - Feb 3, 2016:

Dakota is such a friendly and laid back girl, greeting everyone who walks in with a wagging tail while she stands still for petting and admiration. And it is hard not to admire her block head and stocky lab build; she is a beautiful dog. While this girl is calm and easy, we call her the "wild card" when it comes to play time. She adds a new dimension to the game of fetch by trotting off with the ball or sneaking inside and hiding it in her bed or between sofa cushions. She also has a huge mouth and sometimes hides the ball in there. Funny girl! Her forever family will do well to keep a well-stocked tennis ball basket. Dakota is not concerned about vacuums or loud noises, gets along well with the other dog,s and is not phased by kids and adults coming and going from a busy house. 

Stairs are still not working out for her, but she is making progress as we work together. The vet says there is no physical reason she cannot do it. We are taking it slowly so she does not have a bad experience. Dakota has managed to stretch her body to new lengths in order to get the treats on the upper steps during training sessions while keeping her hind legs firmly planted on ground level. Still, she has no trouble hopping onto a sofa or into a minivan.

Harpo (#160067)

Harpo is a handsome 62 pound neutered chocolate male. He's about ten years old, and like many a senior this guy prefers limited steps and the chance to sleep in. Harpo takes glucosamine supplements for some arthritis in his back but nothing stops this guy from enjoying walks and play time. He loves toys, food, and hanging with his people. Harpo is unknown with cats, good with dogs, and approved for ages ten and up. He's heartworm negative and current on vaccines. Harpo walks well on leash.



Hero (#150896)

Hero is a well-mannered 4 year old neutered chocolate boy who thinks everyone should be his friend. This handsome guy weighs 58 pounds and is keeping his run clean, so he appears to be house trained. Good with other dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up. Hero is from the country and will need to go to a detached single-family home in the suburbs or in the country. One of his ears was treated for a hematoma and it doesn't lay flat but that is all part of Hero's charm. He is current on vaccines but is heartworm, ehrlichia, and lyme  positive. However, Hero is not worried because he is getting the medical care he need, now that he is a Lab Rescue pup. Hero is being treated with antibiotics for ehrlichia and lyme, which are tick-borne diseases, and Lab Rescue will pay for Hero's heartworm treatment even after his adoption as long as its done at one of our vets. This handsome boy is glad to be on the road to health and happiness. 

Update from Hero's foster family - Jan 18, 2016: Okay it’s time I have a family of my own to love and take care of me. I have been with my wonderful fosters for a while and have tried many new things including mowing the lawn, modeling haberdashery, trying out as a Fire Department mascot, and being a chef; which are all exciting but tiring. I really like hanging with my humans and snoozing on a nice comfy couch. 

I continue to do well in my foster home, I'm 4 years old, I'm awesome on the leash and in the car, I love my furry foster siblings and I continue to be a mellow guy. I've finished my treatment for those pesky tick borne diseases but I'll need to get those heart worms taken care of in about a month and a half....my foster bro Coop tells me not to worry because he too had those HWs but the fine folks at LRCP helped with his treatment at one of their vets. I'm about 60 pounds and so gentle...I know sit and come and I make sure to keep FM company as she moves around the house. I'm a good sleeper (man I love the FP's bed) and have been known to go to bed early and sleep until the pack gets up for breakfast. I'm fairly dreamy if I do say so myself, but just to confirm, foster mom tells me I'm gonna make some lucky human(s) really happy...until then I'll continue to hang out and explore new things!

Have a great week,

Hope (#150921) and Faith (#150922)

Hope and Faith are a bonded mother daughter pair who will be adopted together. Four year old Hope, a spayed chocolate female, is the mom and she weighs 65 pounds. Her daughter Faith is a 43 pound fox red spayed female who is two years old. Both are timid, but momma dog is a bit protective of her baby at first when meeting new dogs. However, she settles down nicely once she realizes they are safe. Faith is the more timid of the pair, startled by loud noises and chaos, and whining if she cannot see her mom. Both are good on leash and keeping their room clean. More on these girls as we get to know them better. Because they are country girls, Hope and Faith must go to a single-family detached home in the suburbs or a rural setting.

Hunter (#160034)

Hunter is a 2 year old neutered yellow male who is full of youthful exuberance and happiness. He is approved for ages 10 and up, good with dogs, and unknown with cats. This little guy is super sweet but no one has ever worked with him on training so he will need a forever family willing to help him toward his goals.  He is eager to please, crated trained, and knows several commands already, so clearly he is bright little guy. Hunter is a country boy and must go to a single family home in the suburbs or a rural setting. He is heartworm negative and current on vaccines.



Jack (#160059)

Jack is a handsome 4 year old neutered black male with a beautiful blocky head. His weight is something of a mystery but we hear he needs to drop a few pounds to be at his healthiest.  He is not afraid of children, but he is not a fan of youthful shenanigans, so he must go to home with folks 18 and up. Jack is good with dogs and cats, though. In fact, for a time he lived with a cat and they took walks together.  If you guessed from looking at this handsome guy that he likes to retrieve, then you would be correct. He enjoys a good game of fetch or just the opportunity to walk around with a shoe in his mouth if need be. (No, he does not chew things! This is a good boy!) Jack needs to go to experienced adopters in a single-family home in the country or suburbs. 





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.

Update from Kelly's foster family - 

Feb 9, 2016: Kelly is an easy foster and is super sweet - she is all about sharing hugs (amazing lab lean) and kisses with her people! House training was a success, and she is relaxed and happy. She was able to jog and play in the yard today for the first time after her spay, and had a blast chasing snowflakes with the resident dogs. The jury is still out on the cat. They now co-exist and Kelly corrects easily with a "leave it". She may do well with a dog savvy cat.

Update from Koda -Jan 26, 2016:

I have been in my foster home a little over two weeks. Foster Mom calls me Perfect. I am the most gentle dog she has ever known. All I needed was love to get my personality to blossom. I LOVE everything and everyone. Other dogs and kids are my favs!!! I wag my tail so fast. I also love snow. I climb the highest piles and want to stay there. I walk really well on a lead … and think all the new sniffs are amazing. I also love to play with tennis balls, squeaky toys and play tug with anyone who will play with me. When I arrived, stairs were not my friends but now I can do 5 with ease. I do have a little arthritis and am on Dasuquin. This helps a lot. My ideal – a single family, one level home though with lots of room for me to run stretch my legs and play. I also love soft beds and just lying at your feet to be with you. I am not pushy or noisy. I am just a gentle giant love bug (and cute, too). I do not need another dog to be happy – I just need someone to love!

Update on Loki - Nov 23, 2015:

Loki and I spent sometime today and he really enjoyed going for a long walk. He's good on the leash and was happy to be out of the kennel. This little guy is looking for a family with a quiet lifestyle, a fenced yard, and either a human or canine companion. He likes to play with a playful dog, but without toys involved. He likes to chase cats. Loki is a sweet little pup who will do great with someone who will guide him and continue to exercise him and love him.

London is a 5 year old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 45 pounds, is heartworm negative and is approved for kids 15 and up.  London is a pretty and very gentle girl.  She raised her 10 puppies, who have all found homes, so now it is her turn.  London finds the world to be a scary place, so she is looking for humans who live in a quite neighborhood and have a solid fenced yard.  She would also like her humans to lead a quite lifestyle and have a confident and calm companion dog to show her the ropes.  London enjoys spending time outside walking around or resting under her favorite bush.  She is pretty low energy and is calm and quite in her crate.  London prefers her humans speak to her in a quiet and gentle voice and responds well to gentle encouragement.  She seems to know some words like breakfast and walk.  She has a good appetite, but prefers to eat privately in her crate.  London likes when her humans lay on the floor with her and pet her.

Update from London's foster - Jan 21, 2016:

London is doing well. She runs around the backyard with the resident lab and they sometimes play inside together. She has her moments when she gets very playful and runs around the living room. She likes bones, nylabones, antlers, and tennis balls and will sometimes chase a tennis ball if you roll it across the floor. She comes to the door to greet us when we come home and is getting better when she comes in from outside and we are next to the door. She will sit at the backdoor when she wants to come in and comes in now most of the time without any problem. She will lay down on the couch next to her foster without being scared and she likes to be petted when she is laying next to us. She loves deer jerky and will almost jump in my lap to get some. We have had her for 3 months now and although it has been slow she has made a lot of progress.

Luke #4 (#140847)  

Luke is a 7 year old yellow neutered male.  He is approved for kids 10 and up, is good with other dogs and weighs 64 pounds.  No cats for Luke.  He is heartworm negative.  Luke is very friendly, social boy.  He's been wonderful with every person he's met and knows Sit and Stay.  He has a great Lab Lean and takes treats well.  Luke's hips are a bit stiff and he's taking glucosamine to add some flexibility, but he gets around just fine. He must go to a home with a solid, not invisible, fenced yard and cannot live in an apartment, townhouse or condo. Luke is looking for a quiet, low-key forever home without a lot of comings and goings. 

Update from Luke's foster family - Nov 3, 2015: Luke has been a great foster. It took him a while to show his true personality but now that he has, we realize what a great dog we have. He is very sweet and loves to be around his foster mom. Whenever she is sitting on the couch he likes to jump up and lay on her even if there is more space on the other side of the couch. He loves going on his adventures/walks every day, he'll wait by the door when he knows it's time and wags his tail like crazy when you touch the leash. He has a prey drive, so no cats. He needs a fenced yard. Luke would like to go with someone who has a calmer lifestyle without many visitors and loves to go on adventures just like him.

Lynx (#150844)

Lynx is a 2 year old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 98 pounds, but needs to lose 10-15.  He is approved for kids 8 and up, is good with other dogs and is heartworm negative.  Lynx is a handsome and friendly guy that is looking for a family to help him recover from ACL surgery and give him the attention he deserves.  He is quite lovable and has a lot of personality.  He's a happy boy who enjoys sitting on people laps.  He is house trained and sleeps quietly on his dog bed at night.  He likes to be with his foster mom and does fine in the house for a few hours on his own when she goes out.  Lynx will need extensive rehab, so he will need a home with limited steps.

Update from Lynx's foster family - Jan 15, 2016:

Lynx is doing wonderfully! He is such a pleasure to foster, just an overgrown, squishy marshmallow! Lynx is super friendly, his tail rarely stops wagging. He is house broken, crate trained (I'm not sure he actually needs to be crated but we do so anyway) and walks nicely on the easy walk harness. I feel he could benefit from some basic obedience training. He doesn't seem to know any commands although he is a good listener. 

He does like to table/counter surf (we are working on breaking him of this habit) and when he gets excited and wants to play he will bark at you. Other than that, he is a quiet boy other than his grunts and groans. He loves toys and has not chewed a single thing although in excitement he will pickup anything in his mouth. He adores the kids and he feels strongly that he was meant to be a lap dog despite his 100 pound size! He is a tea cup poodle trapped in a pony sized body! Lynx is a snuggly boy and a kisser, he doesn't always follow you around but would prefer to be near a person. He gets along great with the resident dog although he basically ignores her expect to give her sniffs and kisses and steal toys from her. He does great in the car and he will be starting his swim rehab today!! He will make a great addition to any family. I would recommend he go to a family with children. I don't think a fenced yard is necessary. Someone with time to walk and play with him would be ideal. Once his legs are headed I suspect he will be a lot more exuberant!!

Marley #7 (140793)  

Marley is an 18 month old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 55 pounds and should gain 5, and needs to go to a home with one or more dogs.  No cats for Marley, she will chase them. She is heartworm negative and approved for kids 8 and up.  Marley is a super sweet girl who will sneak into your heart as soon as you meet her by rolling over and asking for belly rubs.  She walks well on leash and and greets other dogs perfectly. Marley loves to play fetch and toys that squeak.  She is high energy, but settles nicely once she has run and played a bit.  Marley is very agile and can jump a baby gate or a four foot fence if she wants to, but doesn't seek out the opportunity; she needs a home with a fenced yard.  She needs a forever family with people who are home more than not and needs a doggy companion.  She will go into her crate for a treat or frozen kong, but isn't happy being in there for extended periods of time.  Marley is completely house trained and sleeps through the night on a dog bed in her foster's room.  She doesn't chew anything she's not supposed to, and knows sit and down.

Update from Marley #7's foster mom - Dec 28, 2015:

Marley has settled nicely back into the routine at her foster's house. Her favorite toy is definitely the lambchop - she even went on a roadtrip for Christmas and was thrilled to find a lambchop at foster Grandma's house too! She rides like a champ in the car, and just curls up into a ball (in the front seat if you'll let her) for a snooze. She's been spending a lot of supervised time with kids slightly under 10 in the last few months, and seems to enjoy their company, and isn't concerned about the hustle and bustle they generally bring with them, so we've adjusted her kid-approved age to 8 and up. Since she is a smart girl who can open doors, kids need to be careful about door control, especially into un-fenced areas. 

Marley really is a wonderful dog. I say it a lot, but everyone who meets her falls easily in love. She's sweet and easy going when you are home with her. She goes with the flow of the household - loves to play and romp and run and chase, and then settles in for a nap on the nearest couch.

Update from Max's foster mom - Oct 1, 2015:

Max #6 had a follow-up visit at the vet's, and so far he has lost 13.6 pounds in one month since arriving to Lab Rescue. He feels good, spunkier, and loves to go for longer walks. His coat is super shiny and the acute ear infection is gone. He will sometimes jump up on his rear legs to show his excitement. This boy is beautiful and happy.

MoMo gets along well with the resident canines and has been deemed low- maintenance by her foster mom.  She is a good rider in the car and is easy on leash.  

Update from Mocha's foster family - Jan 8, 2016:

Mocha continues to be a wonderful house guest! She is a great girl! She LOVES to be a lap dog! Her favorite thing is just to hang with me wherever I go. She has a great appetite and wonderful manners. She is very gentle with treats. Don't let her age fool you- she has tons of pep and can navigate stairs like a pro. She loves other dogs, even foster grandma's cranky little poodles! Such a joy and a great addition for any lab lover! 

Dec 28, 2015: More from her foster mom: MoMo is unbelievably sweet!! And while not a lab leaner, she had been known to fall asleep with her head in my knee. But her favorite part of the day is when she gets to sit on my lap!! She gets on well with the resident dogs but is really more interested in what her human companions are doing. MoMo is what I would call low-maintenance. She loves to walk in the yard by my side and she stays right by me as I work on house projects. She's learned to walk a full flight of stairs. And she tackles everything new fearlessly. She's a treat to have around and is just looking for someone to love.

Petey is an 11 year old black neutered male.  He weighs 66 pounds and is good with other dogs.  He is approved for kids 10 and up and is heartworm negative.  Petey is an extremely friendly and lovable guy.  He is very adaptable and gets long well with all types of people and dogs and loves meeting new people, especially if there is a chance that a treat or pets are involved.  Within a few minutes of being petted, he will lay down on his side to make sure you have the opportunity to rub his belly.  Petey is a fan of long naps during the way, especially in the sun!  He does ok with stairs, provided they are not too steep or there are a lot of them at once.  Petey knows the commands sit, stay, come, down and responds immediately to a whistle.  He is a very lovable guy and it's impossible not to adore him, especially when his ears perk up and his tail is wagging.  Petey has a clean bill of health, but his eyes are a bit cloudy, which could be due to cataracts so his vision isn't great, but he doesn't have any trouble getting around.  He is missing a few teeth and some others are worn down, likely from chewing rocks as a stray, but they don't cause him any problems.  Overall he's a sweet, mellow guy looking for someone to love.



Quincy (#150793) 



 
Quincy, a chocolate neutered male weighs 87 pounds is current on vaccines, and heartworm negative. He is 7 years old and is a "gentle giant" who melts with contentment when someone loves on him. He is also good in the car and walks okay with a harness. He is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up. Because he is  not used to the hustle and bustle of the city, he must go to a detached, single family home in the suburbs or a rural area. He was an outdoor dog in his previous life and is looking forward to a patient forever family that will show him what indoors life is all about.

Quincy came into Lab Rescue with Reagan as a bonded pair but it was determined that they would do better separately and Reagan has been adopted.

Update from Quincy's foster - Jan 12, 2016:

Quincy is a sweet and gentle guy. He loves to be the center of attention and will do best in a home as the only dog. He absolutely loves to be petted and talked to, and he wants nothing more than to snuggle with his humans. He used to be an outside dog but has adjusted well to living indoors. He is housetrained and crate trained. Quincy has a weak back end and needs to go to a home with limited steps. He enjoys going for short walks several times a day. Quincy chases cats, so no cats. We have no kid history, so he's approved for kids 10 and up.

Rocky (#160057)

Rocky is a 4 year old chocolate neutered male.  He weighs 85 pounds.  He is approved for kids 5 and up and is heartworm negative.  Rocky is a gentle of relaxed guy, except when there are squirrels involved.  He would love a tall fenced yard for him to run and play and get his exercise.  He is also a great running companion.  Like most labs, Rocky love the outdoors, swimming, playing in the snow, chasing balls and squirrels, and of course cuddling.  He is a big fan of belly rubs, toys and picking up after his humans, but isn't destructive.  Rocky is very food motivated and can sometimes be a counter surfer.  Rocky has grown up without much contact with other dogs and they can make him nervous, so it's best if he doesn't have any canine siblings.



Roger (#150848)

Roger is a sweet 10-year-old neutered fox red male who is a true sweetheart. Roger weighs 68 pounds, rides well in the car and gets along with both cats and dogs. He is approved for ages 10 and up. Roger will need to go to a detached, single family home in the suburbs or a rural area. 

Update from Roger's foster -  Jan 13, 2016:

After spending months scared and shutdown in a shelter, when Roger arrived at his foster home he was fearful of everything. With just a few weeks of learning about living inside from his foster siblings, he has come to life. As you can see from the big goofy grin, Roger is full of silly sweetness. He loves soft beds, good food, treats, naps, kisses and other dogs. He is in wonderful physical shape, given his energy and health, we estimate his age to be around 7. Roger needs to be adopted into a home with another dog and a solid fenced yard. With patience and understanding, he will continue to bloom into the wonderful dog he was born to be.

Update from Solo's foster family - 

Feb 9, 2016: Petite little Solo has made great strides since arriving at her foster home. When she first arrived she was a little hesitant as she is unsure in new situations, but once she gets comfortable in them, she is fine. She has met and gotten along great with dogs of all ages and sizes. She loves loves loves the snow piles that are left and can’t get enough of it. She has started to show her playful side and does a perfect little play bow when attempting to get her foster siblings to play with her. 

Solo is a very easy foster pup. She loves to lay on the dog bed, crates like a dream and walks very well on a leash. She is not a morning puppy - in fact, if she was allowed, she would sleep in every morning and seems to be as disappointed as her foster mama when the alarm rings and it's time to get up. She is very calm for her age, does not jump, and is perfectly well behaved in the house. She enjoys the company of other dogs and loves to crawl into your lap when you get on her level.
