Shadow is a 4 year old, 80 lb black Labrador retriever mix. She has beautiful fur and is fully vetted.  Shadow was an owner surrender because she was blind with cataracts.  She is being tested at the University of Tennessee vet school to see if cataract removal and insertion of new lenses is an option.  Shadow is house trained and uses a doggy door.  She has no problem with other dogs and stays close to her foster's side.  She will need a fenced yard for her own safety.  Shadow loves to sleep in your arms.  She is a sweet, wonderful dog who loves people and children.

Shadow had her eye operation on her right eye and has limited vision in that eye.  The other eye had a detached retina so cataract surgery would not have helped her have sight in that eye. She may have retina degeneration in the right eye but so far (after 2 months) the eyesight has been stable.   She loves to swim and go long walks in the woods.

About Lost Dogs Run

About Our Rescue Group...

Our Board has previously volunteered and served on the Boards of St. Francis Animal Sanctuary, The Delta Humane Society of Louisiana, Logan's Run Rescue and volunteered at the Valley River Humane Society Thrift Store and Shelter. Our years of rescue experience have shown us that rescue animals are best served by keeping them out of Shelters. We rely on volunteers to foster them while we vet them and find homes for them. Fostered animals are house trained and socialized before adoption. We actively promote fostering of rescue animals by members of the local community.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption application and contract can be found at We ask for a $150 donation at the time of adoption. Before adoption, a home visit and references are checked and a one week trial period has successfully passed. Homes are required to have a fenced yard and the animal must be allowed inside at night. Animals are not allowed to be tied up outside for more than several hours or crated for long periods, except for sleeping at night in the house.
