Daphne

Daphne

Daphne is 2-year old Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd mix, who is currently at the Long Beach Shelter.  She's 80 lbs of wonderfulness!  Can one say that a female is handsome?!  Well, in Daphne's case, she's handsome, gorgeous, and breathtaking, with a stunning black coat that shows brown highlights in the sun.  But Daphne isn't just a "pretty face".  She's a smart and affectionate young lady who is pretty chill and just wants to hang out with her peeps.  Heck, she even loves baths!!!  How is it that this girl hasn't found a home yet?!  Sure, she likes to play tug-of-war with the leash cuz she thinks it's the thing to do when you take her out of her kennel, and she does give some of the dogs the "stink eye" when they come by the play yard.  But guess what?  She's super motivated by treats, can easily be distracted by the crackling sound of the yummy bag, will come over and sit and then will gently take treats from your hand.  All this girl needs is a committed home that will spend some time showing her the ropes.
 
Wouldn't you love to wake up every morning and see that beautiful face and those funny ears?  She's been stuck at the shelter since July, so it's time for her to go to a fun and loving home.  
FURever is working on finding a rescue to sponsor her (will pay for medical expenses and supplies) but a suitable foster must be found before we can start the process of getting her out of the shelter.  The ideal foster or adopter for Daphne would be one with experience with larger breeds, who can provide her a daily routine, including plenty of exercise, and who will commit to her training.  For now she should be in a home with no small children and no other pets.
