This is Penny!! She is about 18 months old, and a sweetheart! I pulled her from the shelter right before they were killing. She is a wonderful, active girl who needs an active person or family. The more I get to know her, the more I thought she was definitely lab (she loves to collect our items!) but something else. I think she has a lot of Vizsla in her. Her energy level points to that, as does her temperment. 

Penny has a loving, friendly temperament. She loves everyone and everything - dogs, cats, kids, people! She is about 50 pounds and is already spayed, has all her shots and is ready for your home. She was food protective of her food with the other dogs, but we have been working on that, and she is 99.9% better about it as she realizes that food is always available here. Still, she needs to go to a family who will continue working with her on this and I wouldn't adopt her to anyone with very young children, as I haven't seen her with toddlers near her food and I don't now if she would see a very young child as human or part of her pack. 

Penny needs to go to an active family, couple or single. This is not a couch potato dog. If you are looking for a hiking partner, a swimming buddy or a running buddy, she would be perfect for you. She would be fine with a family who would take her with them, but please don't consider her if you crate your dog while you work, and then when you go out after work. This would be a terrible life for her. 

If you can give Penny the life she deserves, please email me at dunnpb61@msn.com for an application. Thank you for considering a rescue dog. 

 

About Mutt & Lab Rescue - North Creek

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small New York rescue group, set up to help bring dogs from the south up north to find new, permanent homes. We are totally volunteer, and take great joy in finding great dogs new homes.

We are currently applying for our 501-c status, and appreciate any donations that you may want to make. Your donation will be used to save dogs from high kill shelters, transport them north, pay for quarantine for puppies who need to be in a kennel for 2 weeks before transport, and to a fund for spaying and neutering their dogs, because without a spay/neuter program, the problem of dog overpopulation will never end in the south. Your donation will be greatly appreciated, and wisely used, I give you my promise. It is all for the dogs. Thank you,

Come Meet Our Pets...

Local adoption events in Warrensburg, New York, or you can come visit our pets at our rescue area.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fee of $200 for puppies under a year old, $200 for older dogs or obvious mixes, which includes spay/neuter, shots, shelter fee and transport to the north. Older dogs who need a spay/neuter will be $150 and adopted out with a spay/neuter contract.

All adopters must fill out the application and give a vet reference. If you do not currently have a vet, please contact a vet in your area, and explain that you would like to use that vet as reference for future treatment of your new friend. Additionally, we ask for a Cradle to Grave contract, in which you agree to return the dog to us any time in his/her life if you cannot keep him/her. Adopters must agree to regular vet care for the dogs, including heartworm preventive meds, and obedience training.
