Hi – I’m Spirit!!! I’m a 1-year old female lab mix, and weigh approximately 50 pounds. If you are looking for a playmate, cuddle pal and lifelong friend – HERE I AM!! I greet everyone with a big smile and tail wag, and love to be scratched on my tummy!

I’m still young, and have lots of energy. My foster family has adults and teenage children who play with me every day. I need a fenced in yard to keep me safe, because I LOVE to fetch the frisbee or play soccer.

I am great friends with my furry foster siblings and I walk well on a leash. I am potty trained and know several commands like “sit”, “shake” and “down”. I’m working really hard on staying off of the couch (but it’s so comfortable!). I can be left alone with my furry foster siblings during the day for a few hours at a time, but I am happiest when I am with humans. I will follow you EVERYWHERE if you don’t mind.

I would love an active family who wants to take me places (car rides are very cool!), but at the same time, I also don’t mind a little quiet time of laying on your feet and snoring (YES – I SNORE!) Most of all though, I just want a family to call my own! Contact the rescue today because I just can’t wait to be your best friend!

Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes – pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family.
