Tansy is a 5 year old spayed chocolate female who weighs 64 lbs. She is up to date with her shots and is heartworm positive. But she isn’t worried because because she will be treated by Lab Rescue at one of their vets. Tansy is good with dogs, but not a fan of cats, and approved for kids 10 and up.
This sweet, good natured girl was turned into a rural shelter when her owner was done breeding her. She does not like loud noises or yelling. Tansy is ready to put her former life behind her and enjoy life as a treasured family member.
Update from Tansy's foster on Oct 15, 2016: Sweet, sweet TANSY is still looking for her forever family and we can't figure out why! She is pretty darn perfect!! Calm, sweet, passive with all folks and dogs, walks at a heel on leash, wonderful manners - this girl has it all! Some new intel on her this week:
1. Originally listed as 7 years old, our vets believe she is more in the 4-5 year old range based on her eyes, teeth and general activity levels.
2. It seems she would do fine in a townhouse or condo IF it is in a quiet area and has a fenced yard, even if it is a small fenced yard. You see, sweet Tansy does not like to do her "business" on leash and prefers the privacy that a yard gives. She is not approved for a busy city life, but is great in her crate and quiet, and navigates steps like a champ.
3. She would prefer to have a doggie friend, although it is not 100% necessary, or someone home a lot during the day. She thrives on companionship - 2 legged or 4 legged.
4. Tansy does not like kitties so no cats for this girl. But she loves long walks, helping with yard work, and destuffing toys.
Update from Tansy's foster on Oct 14, 2016: Tansy continues to be a perfect lady and wonderful house guest. She is easy going and sweet. She walks in a heel on leash and greets people and other dogs passively. She loves to snuggle and loves toys and has really began to enjoy the cushy dog beds. She crates well. Just an all around wonderful girl!
Update from Tansy on Oct 1, 2016: 'My name is Tansy and my foster parents say I am wonderful! The report is that I am very calm but occasionally have bursts of energy and run like a little kid all around the back yard. This really makes Foster Mom laugh for some reason. I am not destructive but do enjoy shredding the toilet paper off the roller from time to time. (Foster Parents finally learned and moved it to a shelf. They said I might be smarter than they are.) I am good in my crate. I got to walk off leash this morning at the river. Foster Parents think I have had some practice at this as I walked right at their side and greeted others passively. Last night I got up and made some noise so Foster Mom took me out, I did my thing and right back to bed I went. I sleep through the night, really enjoy my outdoor time, and like to help with the gardening. Foster Parents say there is nothing not to love about me. Nothing. I sound pretty awesome, huh? Come meet me!'
From Foster Mom: She is sweet, calm, lovable, obedient, and learns quickly. She has had no issues with house training. She was either trained before or trained herself. She is a gem. She will make the perfect companion.
