|Breed:||Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix||Color:||Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn||Age:||Adult|

Meet bonded sisters, Maxi (A18911450) and Samantha (A18911433)! These big, beautiful ladies were surrendered to the shelter because their owner moved and could not bring them along. Both girls are likely between 5-8 years old and appear to be some sort of Lab, Shepherd, Pit Bull mixes.
Maxi weighs a whopping 78 pounds and has a beautiful black, tan and white coat and stunning brown eyes. Samantha is slightly smaller, weighing in around 58 pounds and has a caramel-colored coat with cream accents. Maxi is a little more outgoing than her sister, but opens up even more when her sister is around. She didn't mind meeting other dogs at the shelter and seems pretty comfortable with them around!
Samantha is a little more reserved than her sister and is still settling into the shelter-setting. She is more comfortable with her sister around, but will really open up once comfortable with her surroundings. Samantha has a little bit of a rash on her hind-end due to a flea allergy, but is currently on the mend. She was a bit shy when meeting other dogs, but will likely open up once she's settled.
Both ladies would benefit from finding a foster or adoptive home where they can relax, decompress and get back to being the loving family pets that they were meant to be! While it is not necessary, it would be great if they could find a home together. Both girls are already spayed and can go to their new forever home(s) same day! Grab your resident dogs and kids under 10 and stop by to meet them today!
