CARA is a 1 year, 2 month old spayed black female Lab who weighs 94 pounds. Cara is a beautiful young gal looking for a family to show her the love and affection she deserves! Cara and her sibling Woodstock (not bonded) were surrendered to the shelter at 8 months of age. Cara is a sweetheart but was not socialized as a puppy. She is desperately in need of a calm environment, with dog savvy people who will offer the time, love and patience she needs. In the proper setting with the right people, Cara will thrive, blossoming into a wonderful, loving companion. She previously lived outside and had very little attention. She has been in the shelter for quite some time. She needs to go to a home with another dog that can make her feel comfortable and show her how to be a dog. She is approved for kids 10+. More info soon!

Update: Cara has had a very big week at her foster home. This 14 month old has been learning how cool life outside the shelter and kennel can be, and she is LIVING LARGE! This week, she has learned how cool playing with other dogs can be (she's decided the resident 2 year old, 40 lb dog might be small, but she is FUN!), how cool playing with toys can be (seriously...the balls...they roll, she pounces, you'll laugh!) and how cool hanging on the couch can be! She takes treats from my hand (she LOVES food - she may have stolen her foster mom's turkey sandwich earlier this week as a protest to her green bean diet weight loss plan) and is working very hard on her bravery. She may not have had a lot of loving touches in her life, so she's trying really hard to understand that human hands are full of love, and is starting to come around. Yesterday we hung out on the couch and she laid her head on my's a good step! She's house trained and crates like a dream. Cara is looking for a quiet home with gentle, patient humans, a fenced yard and another playful dog.

Update: Cara arrived at her foster home yesterday and is settling in. She loves all of the resident dogs, and wags her tail happily whenever they are near her. She's starting to come around to the resident human, who always seems to have cheese or some other treat in her hand. If she's unsure of something, she'll head to her safe space until she feels brave again. Patience is going to be key to this sweet girl's heart.
