Meet Nova #5

Meet Nova #5! She is about a year old and 70 lbs. This tall, shy beauty was brought in as a stray to the shelter and never claimed. She has a super sweet and playful personality and really enjoys playing with the dogs in her foster home. Nova has not had any accidents in her foster home and will go into her crate. Nova is going to need time to come out of her shell. Regular household noises can sometimes have her running into the next room but with time in a new home & patient owners, she will understand the routine and the everyday noises that she will encounter. Once she gets comfortable with people, she becomes more outgoing and may jump or give puppy nibbles. Nova knows how to sit on command but needs to work on other commands using positive reinforcement. She would do best in a home with a playful canine sibling, people who are experienced in giving a shy dog time to adjust and older kids (if any, due to the puppy nibbles). We do not know how she is with cats.

ADOPTION FEES: $445 non-refundable adoption fee for all vet expenses (spay/neuter, shots, etc.) and transportation to ensure your lab gets to you in a safe, professional manner. All fees may be paid using PayPal, cashier's checks, or money orders. Labs4rescue does not accept personal checks for adoption fees. All adopters must pay their Labs4rescue adoption fee prior to the rescue shipping their dog.

Residents of Massachusetts or New Hampshire are required to pay an additional $125 fee, which defrays the cost of their state's mandatory 48 hour isolation and examination by a licensed veterinarian.
