Adrian is in this situation, but is fortunate that a friend took her in with the promise to find her a new home. She contacted me yesterday seeking help with that endeavor. If anyone sees this who is interested in adopting Adrian, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I can put you in touch with Adian's caretaker.
This is what she had to say about the dog:
"She is a dog who loves to hike, walk or just sit out in the sun. It’s a good idea to keep a wading pool nearby so that she can take a dip and indulge her lab side. She likes to visit us in bed, but always ends up in her bed or on the living room loveseat. She is very affectionate. Not a fetcher, but definitely likes water and the mountains. Completely house-trained. Loves to ride in the car."
I've forgotten the age, but I think she is about five years old maybe? She's a young adult, past the puppy stage, but with many good years ahead. She's spayed but her vaccines are not current, although that can be easily remedied.
I have not yet met the dog myself, I was just contacted by the woman who is seeking a new home for her friend's surviving dog. I can meet the dog and pass along any further information if that would help. The dog is located in Charlottesville, VA.
