#11312 Japanese Persimmon

Medium-size, Female, Adult Labrador Retriever,

Hi! My name is Japanese persimmon, but my foster mom calls me Persie. I'm guessed to be about 1 year old, a lab mix and I currently weigh around 39 lbs. I am a great size…with coal black everything! except for a white tiny “beard” under my chin. My foster mom loves how sweet yet playful I am ….in addition to my curled tail! I would love a home that is quieter and adopters that can be slow and patient with me….I promise the rewards are great!

so far at my foster home….
*I’ve done great meeting other dogs…. met a little puppy, lots of friendly dogs and I’ve had a couple play dates with a great boy pup!
*I am sweet natured and want to please
*I like being near my people and get loves but am hesitant meeting new people ….I just need to keep having slow positive experiences where the people let me approach them ….and they have a treat:)
*I am comfortable taking walks in the neighborhood; I am still learning to be comfortable with all the noises
*I am really good at “sit” for my food, treats, etc and have also learned down, touch, paw and leave it
*I am doing well settling in my crate
*I would love a fenced yard to run in, feel safe and get some exercise
*i would be best in a home with older kids
*I have had no accidents in the house; my mom is watching me closely for my “signals” that I need to go out
*More information to come….

I'm named after the Japanese persimmon tree and made my way north in search of a new family. Is that with you? If so apply today!

Japanese Persimmon is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. She is not suitable in an apartment, condo or other urban setting. Japanese Persimmon is currently being fostered in Ijamsville, MD.

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.
