22 Jan 2017: Sandy is a 9 year old lab-shepherd mix. She is a well-behaved girl who would love to spend her golden years as a cherished family member. Instead, though, she landed in a kill shelter and now sits in boarding (where she has been for far too long), just hoping that someone will make her a part of their family. Sandy is a big girl, weighing about 90 lbs! And as you can see, she is a beauty. Sandy would do best in a home where there are no other dogs or a very submissive dog that is about her size. She would be an ideal match for a couple, maybe even an older couple who understand what it’s like to be aging.
Sandy has been posted and marketed a lot but seems to keep getting passed over. It is so very sad. Won’t someone give her a chance? Sandy is located in New Windsor, NY (not too far from Poughkeepsie). Why not visit her and see if there’s a love match? If you have another dog, you will need to bring him/her along.
Sandy is spayed, up-to-date on all vaccinations, and is microchipped. Fill out an application at http://nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/
