Gracie is a 9-10 year old chocolate lab who found herself at animal control after her “guardian” tried to tie her to a tree in front of the shelter and abandon her there. A volunteer saw it happen and intervened. We cannot imagine why anyone would abandon this sweet girl. She’s good with kids, cats and dogs (but will definitely communicate her feelings if a male dog shows too much interest ). She’s housebroken, sleeps through the night and is very happy and just wants to be loved. She’s an easy dog who will make a great companion for someone looking for a laid back pet. She does need to be treated for heart worms (which we will do) and she does need to lose a few pounds (which you can do by taking her for long walks on the beach after you adopt her). Thanks to Diane for letting us know about Gracie AND finding a foster for us and thanks to Brandy for joining the R.R. team by fostering this sweet girl.
