Belle is a gorgeous 7 year-old Black Lab female who was an owner surrender at a county dog shelter with her canine pal. We don’t know why she and her buddy lost their home.  When her canine pal was pulled by another rescue, the shelter contacted us for help with Belle. We are very happy to help her transition into the next chapter of her life. Belle is an absolute delight and one of the sweetest, most affectionate dogs you’re ever likely to meet. She does like to be very close to her human friends and will jump up for a hug. She does this very gently though without trying to knock someone over but she will need to work on keeping all four paws on the floor. This girl is a definite lap dog (all 70+ pounds) so if you love snuggly dogs, Belle is your girl! Belle has excellent crate manners, walks nicely on a leash, and is likely to be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee that. She also eagerly sits on command for a treat. She gets along very well with dogs of all sizes and is going to be a great friend for one very lucky person or family. She met kitties at the vet clinic and also seemed very kind and gentle with them. Belle weighs about 73 pounds and her adoption fee is $125. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. Prior to coming to Canine Lifeline, Belle had a mammary tumor removed at the time she was spayed. No pathology was done on the growth so we don’t know whether it was benign or malignant. Going forward, her adopter should keep a close eye out for the development of any additional growths. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Belle. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. All of our dogs come to us from county dog pounds so we have no history on them. We also have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 24-48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
