My finder wasn’t shopping for a black Lab at a local thrift store, but that’s where she found me! Hard to believe I was just left behind, but I had neither collar nor microchip, so I was good and truly lost. A 5-year-old female, about 64 pounds, I got along with my finder’s other dogs, but chased her cat. Other than that, she gave me lots of good reports—said I’m housebroken, people-friendly, smart, affectionate, and very sweet. Three kids visited, ages 4 to 10, and I was okay with them, too. Mind you, when first here, I was pretty anxious and some new dogs made me nervous. But human kindness and affection can work wonders. Today, I dare to dream that someone will choose me as their loving companion—someone wonderful like you!
