Meet CONSTANCE! Constance is about 6-7 years old, 62 pound, female, black Labrador retriever mix. She is so sweet, friendly with everyone she meets and a happy girl. While she is older, don't let her gray muzzle fool you -- Connie is playful and loves to go for walks. She would be happy to be involved in any activity the family wants to do. Best of all, Constance settles down nicely to hang out with her people and has great house manners, including seems to understand housetraining. Poor Constance has not always had an easy life (had a few litters) and ended up at a high-kill shelter in North Carolina. PetConnect was able to come to her rescue and has brought her to the DC area to find her forever home. So now Constance is ready to leave her past behind and find her new, and this time, forever home. Constance would love to curl up at your feet (or in your lap) to hang out on a cold winter evening; she loves to cuddle and get pets! Constance is being fostered with 2 large older labs and seems to enjoy hanging out with them; she also seems to respect the two older kitties in her foster home. She would be an excellent new member of the family! Constance is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventatives and eager to find a family to love! The adoption fee for Constance is $295, which includes routine vetting, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment.
***Please note that our first step in approving adoption applicants is to complete a vet check.
