black shepherd /black lab mix Mix Dog For Adoption in GRAIN VALLEY, MO
What do you get when you mix a German Shepherd with a Lab and a Golden Retreiver? The best dang dog in the world! Athena is such a good girl. She is so pretty and sweet. She hasn’t got an aggressive bone in her body and is overflowing with joie de vivre! Athena is only 3 years old and very healthy. She is a larger dog at over 60 pounds, and every inch of her is full of love and devotion. Athena lives with her family in Grain Valley, Missouri. It’s about 20 miles away from Kansas City. Athena has been spayed and fully vaccinated. She is in excellent health. Athena’s owners love her a lot. They want the very best for her, and with a very young family to care for, giving Athena the time, attention, training and exercise she needs and very much deserves has been difficult. Athena has a tendency to jump on people to let them know she loves them. Unfortunately, this has resulted in toddlers being knocked over on several occasions. The family would like to find Athena a home without tiny kiddos and with folks who are in a better position to give her the positive behavior modification she needs. If you have room in your heart and home for this gorgeous girl, please get in touch. She can’t wait to meet you!

verified verifiedGracie is affectionate, loyal and devoted female yellow Labrador Retriever mix. She is 8 years old, healthy, up to date on shots, spayed and house trained. Weighs 75 pounds. She need a new home because of health issues that both her owners face. She is not a hypo-allergenic dog, and her owner has breathing problems. What Gracie offers: Unconditional, total, absolute love. Whenever we come home, she is ready and waiting at the door. A beautiful thing to come home to. Intelligent. Shes a truly brilliant dog. She is quick to learn most commands (I say most because, no matter how we try, weve never been able to train her to fetch. Everything else was quickly and easily learned. I think she considers it beneath her *joke* . She quickly learned our schedules and will actually come to nudge me when its bedtime. Beautiful. She is beautiful to look at, and has an absolutely beautiful personality. Obedient. She really is very obedient although, she really DOES obey my husband more than me. Hes definitely her alpha. When theres food involved, she is, admittedly, a lot slower to obey. But she gets there. Quiet. Weve had her about 7 years, and I think shes barked 20 times or less. Usually to get our attention if shes outdoors. She adores children and people in general and is good with cats. Gracie needs a loving home where she can be the only dog. She is generally good with other large dogs, but has a very strong dislike of small dogs, particularly little dogs showing aggression or dominance. Gracie MUST be on a leash at all times when outside the home. (If she is on a leash, obviously, she is more controllable. Also, when on a leash, she will lunge at a small dog, but she will stand down when ordered firmly by the human with her.) This is important for her new family to understand. Gracie would not be a good dog to take to a dog park for exercise.
