Spice Needs A Home

Age:9 mos
Breed:Lab Mix
Intake date:1/24/2021

Spice needs a family that has the time and patience to work with her…
    Sugar & Spice are beautiful 9 month old Lab mix littermates who came to GRRAND from a rural Ky county where they had been found as strays. Upon intake, Sugar & Spice generally presented as feral dogsā€¦ they were terrified of human interaction and sought hard to escape the confines of any building or fenced area we put them in. They have been housed in a kennel since their arrival early December and are now ready to transition to foster and especially adoptive homes, and happily for Spice, she is in a wonderful foster home!!!
    She will need a home with another friendly, confident dog, a secure above ground fenced yard, no children under 16 yrs old, and experienced adults who can continue to work with her! Spice will need daily leash walking for socialization and a very secure environment due to her being an extreme flight risk. If Spice escaped her home, she would likely never be caught because she continues to be terrified of people… BUT, in the short time she has been with her foster mommy, she is learning to trust in people and with the correct love and support from her family, this will get better every day!!!
    Her foster mom says she loves treats and has a great appetite, so with her food motivation, she should be easy to train. Spice is very comfortable in her crate and sleeps happily in it all night without a peep out of her. Her foster mom calls Spice a gentle soul…
    UPDATE: 3-29
    Spice is settling into her foster home and starting to follow her foster brother around. She likes having her people be in eyesight of her and she is working on potty training and has a good appetite!
