Sooner originally came to us from a homeless man who wanted help with his dog. We spayed her and got her up to date on shots. Recently, she was found as a stray and brought to animal control. Although the homeless man wanted Sooner back, he was not able to care for her any longer, so we have taken her into our system hoping to find this senior girl a loving home! Sooner's age is a mystery, from what we know of her medical history she is between 5-8 years old. She is a quiet, shy dog but warms up once she knows you. We're hoping to find this sweet dog a loving home!
Foster Update:Sooner is such a sweetheart! She is very shy and it took her several days to want to explore all of the house, but she loves being petted and getting attention. She's so cute - she doesn't walk around the yard, so much as she does a kind of prance. Sooner has a good appetite and eats twice a day. She likes to ride in the car and will jump right in for you. Come meet this sweetie in person!
Sooner qualifies for our Seniors for Senior program. If adopted by a senior (55+ years or older) his adoption fee is $50.
*** According to www.dogbreedinfo.com, the Labrador Retriever is a loving, affectionate, lovable, patient dog. Once known as the "St John's Dogs," the Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular breeds in the United States. Originally from Newfoundland, Canada the Labrador was trained to jump overboard into the icy waters to haul fisherman's nets to shore. Specimens were brought to England in the 1800's by English ships coming from Labrador, where the dog's fine retrieving instincts were honed and developed. One of the best family dogs and canine companions because of their gentle, loving disposition, the highly trainable Labrador also excels in drug detection, as a guide for the blind, and service dog for the disabled. The breed is also an outstanding obedience and field trial competitor. Highly intelligent, loyal, willing, and high-spirited. Lively and good-natured, they love to play, especially in water - for they love to swim. They have an excellent, reliable, temperament and are friendly, superb with children and equable with other dogs. They crave human attention and need to feel as though they are part of the family. Labs are easily trained. These dogs are watchdogs, not guard dogs, although some have been known to guard. They have a life expectancy of 10-12 years.
