Flo Jo is 1 1/2 year old athletic Shar Pei-Lab mix who is going for Gold when it comes to her new home. She has the wrinkles and the coat of the Shar Pei and all the personality and go-go-go of the Lab. She is full of life, hasn't ever met a stranger, loves her people with a passion. She was fostered with 2 big dogs and they played nonstop. It took about 12 hours for her to find her place in the pack and that's pretty much what we see. She is a great option for another dog if introduced properly and given a chance to play. She's a player. And she takes her lead from other dogs even if they're in charge. She's a pup so she may try to push boundaries but she responds well to well behaved dogs.

Flo Jo needs that home that is ready for an energetic and playful dog. She needs an experienced owner who is willing to work on basic obedience with her because she is so willing to learn and so trainable. In her foster mom's hands she was already listening well, walking well on a leash, showed zero food or resource aggression. But her foster mom is an experienced dog owner with 2 great dogs who welcomed and showed Flo Jo the ropes. In that kind of home, a dog like Flo just fits in...Flo will need continued work and the right equipment to walk as well as she did with her mom.

Flo Jo actually lives currently with a cat. The caveat is that this cat is very dog savvy and doesn't run and isn't put off by very many things. So Flo Jo didn't react. She is more interested in the pool outside than the cat inside. She loves the water like a true Lab.

Flo Jo will need a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years. If there are kids they need to be over the age of 7.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
