Project Description

Miss Autumn is a calm, sweet, gentle Lab lady who speaks volumes with her eyes. She’s about nine years old and a tad plump at 97 pounds; the mid-eighties would be just right for her per our vet. Miss Autumn was abandoned at a property when her owner passed away and then taken to a small rural shelter with few adoption opportunities for a “lady of a certain age.” No one even knew her name.

Her foster mom tells us she is a very dear pup and wonderful guest: “I love Autumn’s easy-going and affectionate nature; she is very easy to care for and gets along so well with my two dogs.” Our girl is house trained, uses a doggie door, is fine with free roam of the home and is a waggy friendly greeter. She is reluctant about getting in the car, but once settled in, rides nicely. Autumn loves being close by her peeps and is happy to join you on the sofa, if allowed. Faves include eating, snoozing, and some easy-going camaraderie with her housemates.

Autumn is a laid-back, low-key Lab who would enjoy a quieter family that would be pleased to share moderate activity with their pup. Typical of many mature Labs, Autumn has some joint stiffness and takes a daily joint supplement to feel her best.

A gentle and loving lady, Miss Autumn is looking forward to a well-loved life as your very best four-legged girlfriend!

Note: Autumn came to us from Kansas. As part of her routine vetting, she tested positive for ehrlichia, a common disease from a tick bite found in many dogs in that part of the U.S. Although she has shown no signs of illness with us, we followed a recommend protocol and she was treated with a standard course of common antibiotics. Our vet is available to answer any questions you might have.
