We rescued Grace in June of 2012 from a local shelter when her time was up. She has since been looking for a forever home and family.
Dark-colored dogs and cats are the hardest animals to place in homes. This phenomenon is known as 'Black Dog Syndrome.' Thousands of dark-colored animals are euthanized each year in kill-shelters due to being passed up by potential adopters. There are so many theories as to why potential adopters tend to look past them. One of the main possible theories is people tend to think black dogs are ordinary and common, not unusual and interesting, darker-colored dogs come off as bland and normal. They are written off as lacking a “wow factor” and are considered boring. Other theories include Superstition, Photography, Appearance, History, Hollywood, among others. Color plays no role in their behavior; Yet they continue to battle that reputation and go unnoticed. With greater understanding, Black Dog Syndrome will become a thing of the past. Black dogs want our love. Why not show them we want theirs?
Grace is a GREAT dog! She is super sweet and friendly. She gets along with other dogs, cats, and kids. She loves to play and is very playtime oriented. She can entertain herself for hours playing with her toys.
Grace's foster dad takes Grace and her foster sibling (male dog) out for mountain bike rides and runs in the mountains quite regularly. She like to run out ahead of you and she stays near by.
Grace is crate-trained and house-trained. She is very smart and picks up on new things quickly.
Grace is 3-4 years old and is a Labrador Retriever/Pointer/? mix.
Grace's adoption fee $125 which includes her spay surgery and vaccinations (rabies and parvo/distemper). We show dogs by appointment or at adoption events. If you would like to meet Grace, please call and leave a message with Lisa (Director of Four Paws Rescue) at (435) 752-3534 or email us at email@example.com.
Please be patient with us getting back to you as we are all volunteers with full-time jobs! Thank you for your interest in sweet Grace!!
Four Paws Rescue is a private, 501(c)3, volunteer-run organization that is dedicated to helping homeless dogs and cats. Four Paws has been rescuing dogs and cats since 2000. We rescue stray and abandoned cats, dogs, puppies and kittens from high-kill shelters, place them in caring foster homes (if available) and then adopt them into loving, life-long home.
Since our shelter is not set up for drop by visits, appointments can be made with our Director to meet any dog in person. Just leave a detailed message with Lisa (Director) at 435-752-3534 or email her volunteer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our adoption fees range from $125-200. Each pet is spayed or neutered, and current on rabies, parvo and distemper vaccinations
Four Paws Rescue is located in Cache Valley in Northern Utah. We mainly focus on Utah and surrounding states adoptions, but have done a few out-of-state adoptions as well.
