Breed:Labrador Retriever / Spaniel
Notes: altered, hasShots, noKids, specialNeeds
Dottie, the Springer Spaniel/Lab mix, is approximately 4 yrs old. Black with white, freckled paws and muzzle. Very loving. She would love to live with people who are around home a lot. She is extremely affectionate and playful. She runs around and plays with her foster dog sister all day long. She would love to snuggle on the couch or in bed with you if given the chance! She was found as an unidentified stray in Tucson and no owner was found. She was obviously pampered in her previous home! A perfect family for her would probably be an adult couple who is home much of the day, or a home with kids 12 and up. No small children as she is very boisterous in how she shows her affection. She would also do best with an active dog friend! She needs people who know dog behavior because she may chew if you do not know much about dogs. <[p>THE PERFECT FAMILY FOR ME WOULD BEa family who is willing to make a lifetime commitment to care for me. I do not want to be abandoned ever again. I also prefer to have a family with only older children who come around. I prefer an adults only home. I would like to have a family who has plenty of time to spend with me. I love to play! People who work from home would be ideal for me so I can give them my unconditional love!
