#10634 Ballea Castle

Large-size, Female, Adult Labrador Retriever,

Hi! My name is Ballea Castle and I'm guessed to be a 3 year old Lab mix. I'm a tall and sweet girl and I currently weigh around 70 lbs.

Officially, I'm known as Ballea Castle, but you might as well call me Magellan because there is a whole world out there I can't wait to explore! I'm talking nose in the air, tail up and full speed ahead into the yard, around the house, and on my walks. I will need a strong adopter that can handle all this strength, and a little training to help me channel it. I don't jump on people, I just jump for joy, so I might not do best in a small home full of delicate china, you know what I mean? I need room to romp and play!

My foster parents say that in their home, I am friendly with people and house trained. Also, I sleep and enjoy down time in the crate. I am known to let out a hearty bark to announces my entrance and to say hello. And I have a soft, shiny coat. They call be beautiful.

I likely need an adopter who understands that rescue dogs have often gone without enough food or never had toys before rescue and may exhibit some stinginess around other dogs and that is manageable. So I would be best in a home as an only dog and with older dog savvy teenagers.

If you want to take me with you on all your adventures, please put in your application today! I won't be available for long!

Ballea Castle is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. She is best in a home without small children. Ballea Castle is currently being fostered in Great Falls, VA.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
