Lily is a lovely Black Lab Beagle mix who is six months old. She is up to date on all shots, and is not spayed yet. Currently, she is 33 lbs. She is house trained, and knows sit and lie down. She is affectionate and playful and loves people, other dogs, and cats. She does chase our cats, but they have learned to turn right around and swat her which she thinks is great fun. She has been raised with young children, (9 and 4) but she does not give them the respect they need and does not listen to them as she views them as litter mates. We think she would do best in a home with children 12 and up, simply because she gets rambunctious with littles. Lily is totally scent motivated. Her sniffer is always to the ground and following someone's trail. She has the lovely, soft mouth of a lab. She would be a great companion to a sportsman, or someone in the woods a lot. She has not experienced spring yet, but has loved the snow and is hysterical to watch run around the yard in joy. We are not rehoming her because of any behavioral issues. She is highly intelligent and picks up training quickly. My 17 year old daughter brought her home a week before Christmas, and "surprised" us! We don't have a lifestyle that is fair to Lily right now. We travel for work and my daughter is leaving for college in the fall. This sweet girl deserves the best!

More About Labbe Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
