Shadow - in Maine-PENDING
Newest Update: March 2016
Check out this handsome boy! Our southern rescue partners told us, "Shadow is a big dog with an even bigger heart! He is a Labrador Retriever mix and is three years old. His shiny black coat is perfect for petting and his golden brown eyes are windows to a truly beautiful soul. Shadow weighs 74 pounds. He is a well-mannered companion on daily walks and loves his time in the play yard. Shadow also enjoys splashing around in the pool. He loves the company of other dogs. Shadow is a gentle dog who is a bit shy at first, but has blossomed with attention and affection. He will be such a devoted companion!"
Shadow likes the water, at least the kiddie pool!
Now that he is here with us in foster care, we have learned that Shadow is a "no go" with cats, but is fine with other dogs. He has been to doggy day care and done well. He is a smart cookie and is learning commands quickly.
Shadow can be nervous with new people at first, but with a little time and a few treats he comes around. He is bonding quickly with his foster mom and likes watching his foster dad from a distance for now. If he is leaning on his foster mom, anyone can come pet him.
Shadow loves to ride in the car and will stick his head out the window. He is house-trained, crate-trained and ready to meet his new family!
Shadow’s foster mom tells us he is so smart! He knows sit, lay, stay, come. He can be hesitant at first with new situations and new people, especially men. He is coming out of his shell a little with each new experience.
If interested in Shadow or any of our sweeties, please fill out the adoption application.
Please note: we do not have a physical location where the dogs are housed. They are cared for in our wonderful network of foster homes throughout New England (primarily southern and central Maine). It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog in the foster setting where the dog is feeling safe and loved.
