Ribbons is: Wallflower:  Shy yet charming canine searching for patient owner with relaxed lifestyle. Looking for gentle guidance to help me come out of my shell when meeting new people. Treat me sweet and kind and I’ll blossom.    

Ribbons does require a 6 foot high wood or vinyl fence.  

Are the kind of outdoors person that loves to be out there in the snow? Clearly if you are -- you should adopt a dog who is also 'outdoorsy' like LnF adoptable Ribbons. This photo shows her at her happiest WET from the hose! Ribbs also loves being outside in the snow -- I have to BEG her to come in no matter what the weather. There is a photo below showing her being a Snow Bunny! Here is her story:

If Ribbons were a woman she would be the kind of woman who is most comfortable in jeans & a flannel shirt. If you love being outside & adopted Ribbons she would become your constant companion! S he is a very outdoorsy kind of girl. She is always the 1st to go outside in my backyard in the morning & the last to come in. She just loves to be outside & prefers to find something, anything to perch on & she keeps an eye out for those pesky birds & squirrels. She makes it her mission that they are NOT going to come in her yard while she is on duty!

Ribbs is shy at first --- but warms up as soon as she feels comfortable, she has no aggression whatsoever. She is extremely beautiful as you can see, VERY smart & would do best with an experienced dog parent with relaxed lifestyle. She is also so smart --- she would need her adopter to be at least as smart as she is! She is laid back, loving and would love to be your best new girl! She is spayed, fully vetted, housebroken, crate trained & microchipped.

Ribbons is about 50 lbs. young adult Lab/Border Collie, extremely intelligent, very agile, and I feel if she met someone who wanted to take all that raw talent they could train her to excel agility. Ribbons a true beauty. Her beautiful black coat is actually glossy, very shiny and thick and so soft!

She is also a huge water hound. When I get the hose out she stands there & stares at it. I can squirt it right in her face & she LOVES IT! I would love to see her in a home with a pool or at least a larger kiddie pool for her!

She is a leader among the dogs but submissive with humans. She came from a kill in WV along with two of her siblings.

About LnF Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

LnF Dog Rescue is a small foster based dog rescue that saves sheltered or abandoned dogs.

We are not a shelter, we rescue puppies/dogs from shelters. Our dogs are selected based on having gentle, sweet, & loving temperaments. They are socialized in our foster homes until they are ready to be adopted.

For complete details about our rescue & our dogs visit our website at

Come Meet Our Pets...

Since all of our pups/dogs are in foster care, we do require a pre-approved adoption application prior to meeting them in person.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our adoption fees and policies are listed at our website:

LnF Dog Rescue

All pups/dogs are already spayed/neutered, live in foster homes, are housebroken, crate-trained, up-to-date with all shots, & microchipped & have 30 days of FREE Pet Insurance.

Most importantly they all have sweet & gentle dispositions & get along with other dogs.

You must have current vet references & must have raised a dog or pup as an adult.

~ We require experienced pet owners only unless the dog is listed as "suitable for first time pet guardian" ~

~ A fence is always mandatory and must be installed.
We will not consider any applications that do not have an installed fence.

We do NOT accept ANY type of electric or underground fence. *** There are no exceptions ***

We only accept a physical fence 4 foot or higher. Some dogs require a higher fence & that is noted in their profile.

If you are interested in a certain pup/dog, please read each profile to be sure the pup/dog matches your lifestyle. Our strict adoption requirements are based on our years of experience & unless you can meet our minimal adoption requirements .... you will not be approved.

These are not *suggestions* that we will negotiate, these are our requirements to adopt from LnF Dog Rescue.
