Eevee – Black Female X, 4-5 years old, 70lbs

Hey y’all! Have I got a deal for you – adopt me, the fabulous Eevee and get a bonus teddy bear! You see, my teddy bear stuffie is my very bestest friend. He has been there through it all with me – the death of my beloved person, witnessing the death of my companion dog, getting dumped at that scary shelter, the pain of my torn ACL, meeting that really nice Defender of Dogs person who rescued me, getting comfortable in my foster home, my TPLO (Tibial-Plateau-Leveling Osteotomy) leg surgery recovery – and now me and my bear are finally ready to find our forever family. Wow what a journey it has been!!! As you can probably tell me and my bear have been through it, but in classic Labbie style, my capacity for love is endless and I am ready to love you! Let’s chat and see if we are a match!

I am a very sweet girl who has faced a lot of challenges in my four years on this earth. Understandably, it takes me a bit of time to trust new people. But please give me a chance to get to know you, as once I do let my guard down, my sweet and loving personality shines! I am a playful girl who can occasionally be convinced to set down my teddy bear for a fun game of tennis ball fetch with you. Now that I had my TPLO surgery to repair my torn ACL, I can run with the best of them! I do get along with other dogs, but I think I would probably prefer a home where I am the one and only canine. I have a lot of loving that I need to make up for, after all! I have lovely house-manners and I am house-, crate- and leash-trained. No felines for me though- they are too much fun to chase. I am used to looking after myself, so sometimes I can be a bit headstrong and need a dog-savvy family with no young children. I would love to find a family who will take me to training classes so we can learn all those cool tricks together. I am pretty smart and love a challenge! Most of all, once I let you in, there is nothing I love more than just being with you. We don’t have to do anything fancy or adventurous, just being by your side is enough for me <3

Sweet Eevee has faced more tragedy and challenges in her short life than most dogs experience in a lifetime. Despite the adversity she has faced, she still has so much love in her heart. Eevee is seeking a special family who understands she will need extra support, patience, and love to gain her trust and build up her confidence. Eevee is a fun-loving darling girl; it just may take her some time to show her true self to you. Oh, but what a joy it is to watch a rescued dog blossom! It is truly a life-changing experience. If you have room in your home and heart for this amazing girl (and her teddy bear!) apply online to adopt her!
