Sweet Libby was found by her foster frightened in the alley behind their home. She was initially surrendered to a local shelter in hopes her family would find her, but when they never came, her foster pulled her to insure she didn't lose her life to an overcrowded municipal shelter.
She's in a home with 5 other dogs, and sadly, one of them doesn't seem to like Libby at all! But the dislike wasn't mutual, Libby seems to like other dogs.
Shortly after she was pulled from the shelter, she developed what the vet suspected was 'kennel cough' which is being treated with simple antibiotics. Libby is now up to date with all vaccinations, spayed, and even microchipped. She's a 'plug and play' kind of dog!
Libby's very loving - though shows evidence of not being 100% trusting yet. If surprised by a person, she tends to cower. She's great with kids (what lab isn't?) and dogs (except her fosters!) but hasn't been exposed to cats yet.
Libby loves toys, likes to play fetch, and is thrilled to be with 'her people'.
If you feel your home might be the right place for this wonderful girl, the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you to tell you more, and to arrange a meeting!
'Libby is a participant in the DFW Rescue Me Guest Dog Program, so her ongoing care and custody are provided by their foster, not by DFWRM.'
