Description: Cinnamon Toast is a Labrador/Golden Retriever mix—yellowish-tannish-white, with white markings. Her amber eyes are surrounded by dark brown eyeliner. She just has a bit more to lose to be ready for beach-bod season!
Personality: Cinnamon Toast is such a happy-go-lucky and friendly lady. Always glad to meet new people, you can see it in her wagging tail and adorable smile. Check out the video below to see how wonderful she is with a 12-year-old child she'd never even seen before! Look how she runs around exploring: you’d absolutely never know she’s ten years old.
Cinnamon needs to go potty several times during the day, and she tells me she's looking for a home where someone is around a lot and needs to be an only dog. She consistently responds to commands, such as Come, Shake, and Sit. If you like a couch cuddler, this is your girl. She loves her crate and often goes in to snooze on her own when the door is open.
Cinnamon quickly learned her leash manners, and shows no aggression when seeing other dogs or passersby while walking with her foster mom and other IAR volunteers. One of her favorite things is riding in the car. She jumps right in . . . poking her nose out the window to smell what's in the air or peeking her head next to your seat next to your seat to say hello. With her energy level, Cinnamon absolutely belies her age, and even enjoys chasing balls! She loves running around, as you can see in the video, and so would very much appreciate a fenced yard.
Animal History: Cinnamon Toast came from a local shelter, along with her sister, Honey Dew. They were both adopted at age 2 months and surrendered at age 10 years to the same shelter. The owners said they were moving and couldn't take the girls.
