#8119 Flannery O'Connor 2019 Cara Achterberg

Small-size, Female, Adult Labrador Retriever,

Flannery is 2 years old and weighs about 30 lbs with a look and a personality like a min-pin. She is an energetic, busy girl who LOVES to go for lots of walks and would likely even be a nice running buddy. She is smart and curious and will thrive on challenges. She just completed an Intro to Agility class and was a SUPERSTAR! With more training, she could be a serious competitor. She has mastered the tunnel, A-frame, hoop, and can jump anything you put in front of her. She has also been introduced to the teeter and the dog walk. Flannery will fetch anything - balls, frisbees, toys, even rocks!

Her funny personality, keeps us all chuckling. She loves to play with toys and when no one is available to play with, she will just toss toys to herself! Flannery is also a first-class snuggler and a Phillies fan.

Like her namesake, Flannery is a spunky southern girl. She will need an adopter who has some dog experience. That steller brain of hers could easily take over the show. She will do best in a home without children, while she adores children, she has a tendency to nip grabby hands. She gets along fine with other dogs, does fine with cats, has great recall off-leash, and is housebroken and crate-trained. She is smart, willing, intense, athletic, and speedy. While Flannery can be a quirky dog, she is also a sweetheart who will keep you entertained and adored for years to come. Looking for a best, best, best friend? Look no further.

Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA 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 Ashland.

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.
