Black lab needs a home:  We are currently fostering Lori. All Attachment with no descriptionadoption fees are waived via WAG! She is a wonderful black lab mix. I think she is younger than she looks, maybe prematurely grey. Likely 6-9 years old. Great manners, house-trained, loves all people and does not react to deer or other dogs, great on a leash, medium level energy, and knows all of the basic commands.

She really wants a forever home and deserves one. I believe she has many years left on earth and is just plain good. I should be in a home without other dogs I have been told. Shots are current. Flea and Heartworm prevention current as well. Approximately 60 pounds.
