Dorothy‘s Story

❤️Dorothy is Available❤️

Please READ the bio and adoption requirements first to make sure you are a perfect fit BEFORE APPLYING.

Hello there! My name is Dorothy! I’m a 6-year-old, 70lb Female Yellow lab, and I’m ready to give all my love and cuddles to you!

I’m a super sweet girl, and I make the best companion! You would never know that I spent most out my life outside in a kennel! Despite my hardships, I’m very lovable and want to give love and licks back, especially if you rub my head, ears, or belly!

I usually wake up around 7 with my foster mom and go on a short walk before breakfast. I spend most of my day sleeping on the couch or sleeping under my foster dad’s desk while he works! When my foster mom comes home, we all go on a longer walk to stretch my legs and smell the neighborhood! I get to snuggle on the couch with my foster parents until dinner, and then I get another short walk before sleeping in my bed next to my fosters!

So far, I’ve learned how to sit and stay still for a few moments, especially before getting fed. I love to sleep, so I’m still learning to come when my name is called, but once I’m up I’m ready to go! I am really good on a leash, but sometimes I get tangled up with my fosters, so they say I need a little more practice to be really good! I’m still getting used to living indoors and sharing attention with other dogs, but with more training and exposure I can learn to tolerate both!

- Prefer to be an only dog, but with extended exposure could have a fur sibling
- No children under age 6
- Active family for weight management

If you meet all of the requirements and live within 350 miles of Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, please apply at
