Daphne is a painfully shy 2 year-old Lab mix female who came to us last summer along with her mom Tory and brothers Tag and Dutch. Their world was completely upended when they were all surrendered to a county dog shelter by their previous owner. Daphne was the shyest of the group and was the last to be adopted. She was adopted last August but returned to us in February because of her extreme shyness and inability to adjust to suburban living. Daphne is a loving dog with people that she knows but it does take her time to warm up and feel comfortable with someone new. She absolutely LOVES other dogs though so must go to a home where there is at least one other dog who will play with her and help her adjust to her new environment. Daphne went to doggie daycare in her previous home and felt very comfortable there. She is very fearful of noises and traffic so urban/suburban living is too stressful for her. Daphne needs a quiet home in the country with other dogs and a secure aboveground fenced yard. This is the situation in her current foster home and she is comfortable there.  She is crate-trained and should pick up the house rules with some patience and consistent direction in her new home. Whoever is able to give her the time and patience to allow her to overcome her shyness is sure to be rewarded with a wonderful companion for years to come. Daphne does walk on a leash but is usually too frightened to enjoy going for a walk which is why a large secure fenced in yard is essential for her. Daphne weighs about 55 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
