Let’s Help Betty Find a Home! Dog Adoption of the Day #AdoptDon’tShop
This is Betty and she is an 8 year old, purebred yellow Labrador dog. After wandering around as a stray, Betty landed at the city shelter and nobody came to claim her or ask about her.
Information from Betty Adoption Post
She’s become an unwanted dog and it’s just not right! Betty has already been waiting several months for a home. There are a lot of important details about Betty below, so please read carefully to learn what type of home she will do in.

Betty is an 8 year old yellow Labrador who ended up at the shelter with multiple lumps and bumps on her body and sagging boobs due to over breeding. Labradors and Friends cannot leave her behind so we rescued her. She also had pneumonia and was hospitalized for two days. When she gained some weight and became healthy, we got her spayed and removed all her lumps. Surgery was difficult on her body, but she pulled through like a champ! I’m also thankful her lumps are benign!
Betty is a little shy at first but she absolutely loves people. She’s submissive, affectionate and very loving. This sweet girl oozes so much love! She’s very gentle and has the kindest eyes. She has low energy and would love to hang beside you wherever you are.
Betty is cautious at first around other dogs. If they bark at her, she will bark back. I believe she barks out of fear to tell them to stay away until she feels safe. Once she senses no danger, then accepts them. She would only reacts if they’re mean to her. She’s *not* dog aggressive. She may have lived in an environment where she had to fend for herself and her pups. She is great around calm and peaceful dogs with nice energy.
I’ve taken her to the cat building when she was still at the shelter and she showed no reaction. I’m not sure how she would be with a house cat.
Labradors and Friends would adopt a dog out of states or to other distant cities only if the adopter is willing to come to SoCal to PICK HER UP and then drive home with her. We don’t ship or cargo/transport our dogs especially a senior like Betty.”
