Hi folks, Shady here & do I have an adventure to tell you about. I came into SCARS after being discovered with a stick stick through my chest. The good folks at SCARS rushed me to Guardian Vets where they removed the stick and patched me up. I then made the trip to Westlock Vet where I recuperated. I’ve just made my way into a foster home a couple of days before Valentines Day, so I was able to start showering my foster folks with love (well actually trick them into scratching & petting me as I happily groan)!
I’m about 5 year old, 60lbs & 23 inches at shoulder. As you can tell from my pictures I have a large patch of hair to grow back & a large scar, but it’s all healing and starting to come back in. I’m house trained, crate trained (I need some treats to go in, but settle just fine). I love my walks, we are working on my basic commands (sit/wait/pulling on leash), but I’m making good progress.
As a lab cross I definitely love food (kibble, treats, fro yo & frozen pumpkin cubes), so that helps with my training. I love being in the same room as my people & follow my foster folks throughout the house. I get along with dogs & kids, as for cats we aren’t sure.
I’m looking for my forever family that will give me scratches & cuddles, take me out walking daily, work on my fetch game with me in the yard. If there is another dog in the house that’s a bonus as I grew up with other dogs in the house but it’s not a deal breaker if people are around a lot of the time. If you like my profile & think you might be my forever family, put in an app for me & we can set up a meet & greet.

Please note: If other cats/dogs in your home are not spayed/neutered, we may deny your application. SCARS exists due to lack of spaying/neutering and it is our goal to end this cycle. If there is a documented medical reason for your animal to not be spayed/neutered, we will work with you.
