DOG OF THE WEEK – Help Esther find her Forever Home

November 24, 2013 at 12:58 PM

Female Labrador retriever mix needs a home, will it be yours?

Esther is between 2-3 years old.  She is named Esther after the famous swimmer, Esther Williams. She loves to swim, and loves the water. She also gets along well with other dogs and children. There is not much Esther does not like. She is a very easy going dog and would do well in any household, especially an active one.

According to Esther's foster family, Esther enjoys activity such as running and swimming. She is a very fast runner. Esther is very well behaved and made quick friends with the foster family’s children and 9-month-old adopted puppy. Esther also likes sun bathing on the deck, having her belly rubbed and listening to classical music. She's a wonderful addition to any home. Esther is housebroken up to date with her vaccinations, spayed and micro-chipped.
