Gracie, who just happens to be a young
female Labrador Retriever, is a socialite who thinks that she is a
lap dog. Gracie was rescued just in the nick of time from a local animal
kill shelter, and is enjoying being fostered in a home with small children,
cats and other dogs. Unfortunately with two other large dogs who already
have claimed the territory and with three active children, her foster
guardians don’t have enough time left over to give her the attention
and love that she deserves.
Gracie would love to be in a home where she could
be an inside and outside companion. As much as she enjoys companionship,
she would do well with another dog in her home to play with. The other
dog does not necessarily need to be young, since Gracie is apparently
encouraging the two older dogs in her foster home to act young. She
even tried to get the cats to play with her. Gracie is very intelligent,
already knows her basic commands, and listens well. So far she has
not been too destructive...for a lab.
When Gracie is not trying to get someone to play with
her, she enjoys chewing on tasty rawhides, playing with her toys, and
or course sleeping in her cozy dog bed. Like all good Labs, she loves
to eat, and will eat almost anything you put in front of her, including
a banana **peel and all**.
Gracie is an independent rescue effort that is supported
by DogsOnly. so she may not be available to meet at all of the DogsOnly
adoption showings at the west Little
Rock Petco on Chenal Parkway across
from Target and Home Depot every Sat and Sun from 1-4. Please be sure
and call (501-219-9907) before you come to visit her to make sure that
she is still available for adoption. She has received a complete medical
evaluation, will be altered shortly, has already had her first round
of shots, rabies, fecal and worming medication, flea/tick preventative,
heartworm preventative, and grooming. If your family likes to play,
includes a fun loving canine companion who is willing to share their
cool squeaky toys, then you might be the perfect family for Gracie.
If you would like to learn more about Gracie and her adoption you are
invited to send an email to his foster home at firstname.lastname@example.org or
complete an online
adoption application by clicking the orange text
links at the top or bottom of this page.
If you don't find that special companion you are looking for in the DogsOnly rescue, rehabilitation, and re-home program then please Little Rock Animal Services or one of the many other central Arkansas rescue organizations to save a rescued canine companion.
