My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Meet Sinbad!

This big ball of fun is looking for his forever family. Sinbad came to us as a stray in early 2022 and was never claimed. We estimate his birthday to be 04/01/2021, and he is a gorgeous yellow labrador retriever mix. If you get the pleasure of meeting him, you may notice some scars on his rear legs. Though they were already mostly healed when he came to us, the marks can only lead us to speculate what kind of life this handsome guy had before. If you watch Sinbad interact with our staff, you get to see him be relaxed and as goofy as can be. He loves to play chase, wrestle, play tug with his favorite stuffies, and run around with his friends here. With new people, however, Sinbad tends to become very shy and unsure. We suspect however his life was before the shelter left him with some unfortunate fears and habits. It takes him a few extra minutes and reassurance from a familiar face to relax and open up to new faces, but once he does you're in for a treat. He is such a smart boy, too. He is walking better on a leash all the time, knows the "sit" command, and responds to both his name and his nickname "Sinny Binny". Sinbad is highly food motivated, he loves lunchtime and treats more than anything. He gets so excited to chow down that he gets the privilage of eating almost exclusively from slow feeders and puzzle bowls. He is still learning to take treats gently, but can catch them midair like a pro. Sinbad does great with other dogs, but as always we require a meet and greet if you already have any. He requires a cat-free home, as they remind him of his favorite toys (stuffed animals). Because of his rough play style and slow-to-trust nature, we reccomend without any young kids either. 

Sinbad is fully vetted, microchipped, and neutered, with an adoption fee of $175. We require his forever home to have a fully fenced in yard, minimum of 5ft. Due to his tentative nature with new people, we require around three meetings with Sinbad before he is able to go home. 

Interested in this loving guy? Call us at 615-446-7387 to set an appointment to meet him.
