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 - Staten Island

About Our Rescue Group...

We take dogs from high kill shelters in the south, bring them up here, and find them wonderful Forever Homes in the northeast.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have pets in North Creek, the Utica area, the Millbrook area, and a few on Staten Island.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an application, and a vet reference. If this is your first pet, we require a home visit.

Our contract states that all dogs must receive regular vet care, including heartworm preventative, and obedience training. You must be 21 years old to adopt, and we prefer those who own a home, although very mature and responsible prospective adoptees who rent will be gratefully considered. Any dog that does not work out is returned to us by legal contract, after you have taken reasonable measures to give the dog a chance to adapt to your home and new situation. You may have to wait up to two weeks for us to find a spot for the returning dog, as we are always very full.
