This beautiful young lady is Kricket, a one year old lab/shepherd mix that came to us from our Newark facility in search of a great new home. Kricket was found as a stray and we just can't imagine how this sweet girl became lost. This little lady is so young and innocent....what a shame that someone let her go. Kricket was extremely thin upon arrival, so she may have sufffered some neglect in her young life. She is loving the attention that she is getting now and the good care that she is receiving, and just adores everyone she meets. When you go to take Kricket for a walk, she greets you with an enormous smile and a full body wag! Kricket is very outgoing and loves meeting new people. She enjoys going for walks and spending time in our exercise yard, especially when she gets to dive into our toy box and pull out some of her favorites. Kricket is well behaved and walks nicely on a leash, and she also gets along well with other dogs. Kricket would make a wonderful addition to any loving family if you just give her the chance she's hoping for! 12/5/12 File#22109
