Facts about Petra

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Petra is young (born January 2016), sweet, good-natured Girl who is eager to learn. She loves to be petted and held after she has played. She enjoys being around people and other dogs. Petra is happy and energetic - she plays with her Foster’s two male Pitties that weigh 70 pounds each without fear, just as though she were their size. She is also content playing by herself.

Petra has a high energy level. She will run and play until she gives out. Therefore, she will require a family with a fairly active lifestyle who can ensure she gets 1 - 2 hours of exercise a day. She is very playful on and off leash; she engages in more high-energy play when she is off leash.

Petra is pretty good on lead - she pulls some, but responds to voice or leash correction. She has not been cat-tested, so her ability to peacefully coexist with a cat is unknown at this point. But, if you are potentially interested in Petra, send us a message, or submit an adoption application on our Web site at www.barktowndogrescue.org, and we can schedule a meet and greet at your convenience to see how she will fit in with your family and their lifestyle!

About BarkTown Dog Rescue and Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

BarkTown Dog Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc. is an all-volunteer non-profit organization. We envision a compassionate world where all dogs reside in responsible, loving homes.

Dogs in our care are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment that is needed. The dogs are then placed in nurturing foster homes while they await placement into their permanent home. Our group remains interested in and committed to the welfare of the dogs beyond the adoption process.

Our goal is to help dogs in distress without regard to age, breed, size, or ease of placement. To the extent our finances allow, dogs in the greatest need take priority.

Finally, we strive to work with area shelters and other rescue groups to develop a network of supporters and volunteers to create a better world for homeless dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

The dogs that we have available for adoption have come from shelters where they were found stray or were given up by their owners. These dogs have been let down by humans in the past and may be suffering from physical ailments or abuse. So, by the time these dogs come into our rescue group they have been thru a lot and need a home that can provide them with structure, guidance, love, patience and time to adjust to their new surroundings. Please understand that as dogs transition from shelter to foster home to forever home there can be set backs along the way and they will need your help to adjust.

All dogs that are adopted from BarkTown are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and provided with all necessary veterinary care. However, owning a pet can be expensive and you must be prepared to provide quality food, monthly heartworm medication, monthly flea and tick medication, yearly shots and routine checkups. In addition, you must prepare for accidents and illnesses that may require expensive treatment or surgeries. Many times our dogs have ended up in shelters because their previous owners were not prepared for these expenses and we want to ensure this never happens to them again.

We strive to know and understand each of our dogs so that we can work to find the best match for each dog and adopter.

Our adoption process includes an adoption application, adoption interview, meet and greet, veterinary reference check, personal reference check and home visit prior to making the adoption final. We reserve the right to deny any application that we feel is not a good fit for any of our dogs for any reason. If you are ready to make a commitment to one of our dogs please complete the adoption application and submit for review. The adoption fees vary based on the age of the animal: Age 7 and up is $250, Under age 7 is $275.
