Vanilla Bean (also called Nilla or Beanie Bean) is a female Labrador mix who was rescued after being abandoned. She is about 4 years, old, small framed, and weighs about 50 lbs (although she is a little more at the moment as she has been eating a little too well at her foster home J ). She looks to be mixed with cattle dog/red heeler. Vanilla Bean is unsure with new people but warms up after a few minutes, curious and all smiles and wags once she is used to you. Nilla has got along great with her foster brother and other dogs she meets, and she would probably like a home where she has a dog sibling to hang out with. She is not tested with cats but has not really shown prey drive.
Vanilla Bean is crate trained, house broken, and knows how to ask to be let out to go to the bathroom. She is mellow in the house and likes to hang out and follow her foster mom and dog foster brother around. Nilla walks okay on a leash as well, and although she does get excited and pulls some times, she is always improving. Nilla is very food-motivated and loves all kinds of treats: apple slices, zucchini, cantaloupe, pear, and of course cheese and dog salami!
Nilla does have a formerly broken and poorly set hind leg, which doesn't prevent her from walking or running but may begin to impair her movement in a few years. Make no mistake though, she loves and needs her daily walks and a chance to run around outdoors as well. Vanilla Bean's adoption fee is $250 and includes her spay, basic shots, rabies shot, health certificate, heartworm tested negative, and her microchip. Beanie Bean is being fostered in Seattle but she will need a few foster by Saturday, February 23 or as soon as possible following. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would an application to adopt to meet this sweet girl.
