Shadow: 7-month-old female black Lab mix 42 lbs Not yet spayed

Background: In late June this little stray gal wiggled under the fence of a home in Pittsburg to enjoy some food left outside for cats. The owner of the home soon discovered the visitor and took her into their home. Over the next two months, the family looked for the owner of this puppy without any success. They checked to see if the puppy had a microchip; nope. They named her “Shadow”. They crate-trained her. They house-trained her. They taught her a few commands. Finally realizing that they could not keep her (and at the encouragement of the local animal services agency), the family contacted Lab Rescue for help finding Shadow a new forever home.

What Shadow’s Rescue Rep says: One wiggly, happy puppy. She is making herself at home with her fosters and their chocolate Lab “Charli”. Shadow can play and romp for hours and hours and hours. Shadow would be great in a home with another dog or just by herself so she can focus on her humans. Not sure what she is mixed with and not sure how big she will get. No idea how she is with cats; suspect she will want to play with them. Could be a great dog for a family with children.

Medical: In good health. Current on Rabies vax and microchipped. Not yet spayed. Will need a distemper vax booster in late September. Shadow is suffering from and being treated for what is likely demodex – which explains the fur loss around her eyes and on a few patches on her body.

Shadow is currently located in Napa.

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
