If you're looking to have a constant companion, meet our beautiful tripod Melina! She is a Retriever, Labrador mix with a gorgeous chocolate brown coat, floppy ears and smile! Melina was evacuated from the Gulf Coast ahead of Hurricane Laura in late August and hopes to find her FURever home soon! She is still working on her reactivity and is slowly improving; however she would still do best in a home with no cats and as the only dog. She would love to have a family who can spend lots of time with her as she thrives on affection and praise. Potential adopters will get to have a consultation with our dog trainer to learn more about her behavior and personality traits. She is a quick learner and loves to smell everything. Once she is relaxed, she likes to lay down to receive all the belly scratches! Melina is also Heartworm positive and will need to continue her treatment in her new home. If you would like to adopt Melina, submit an online adoption application today!
