Labrador Retriever - Shepherd - Young - Female
Adoptable Large Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotshousetrained

Charlotte was picked up by Animal Control and was not claimed. For whatever reason her previous owner(s) didn’t want her, it’s their loss since she’s a lovable, entertaining girl! Charlotte welcomes most dogs she meets, but not all. She’s a fan of several male doggies at our shelter and eagerly engages in play with them. She submissively plays with the boys but can be selective around other female dogs. She enjoys toys and sits when being leashed up to be taken out of her kennel. Charlotte would be easily trainable in the right environment with guided, positive reinforcement. She wants to please, but a noisy, crowded shelter is not the place where a dog like Charlotte can easily thrive since she holds her potty breaks for up to 21 hrs a day. We encourage potential adopters to take her for a walk and get to know her away from the business of our shelter. She’s a tad strong on leash at first, but only because she’s so anxious to get out to potty (it’s hard for a housebroken dog like her to hold it for so long). When given the chance, Charlotte romps in kiddie pools and plays in the mud. She totally enjoys playtime and has grown accustomed to gentle hose downs and paw wipe-offs afterward. Maybe it’s the extra attention and belly rubs when cleaning her up before going back to her kennel. She’s been with us for over 3 months with little interest. We think she’s adorable, don’t you? Stop by to meet her if you think your home could be the right match!

For adoption inquiries, please contact Kelly, our Adoption Coordinator, at or inquire directly via Petfinder. We are a volunteer-based humane society; please be patient with our response time to your inquiries. We are not able to assess dogs with cats since we are a small, rural shelter set up for dog intake only. We may be able to provide an opinion on how a dog may get along with cats, but behavior in your home is unknown until they would be properly introduced under supervision. For inquiries regarding a dog’s behavior with small children, the majority of our shelter dogs are unclaimed strays & we have limited or no history. We always recommend a meet and greet with our dogs available for adoption.

Taylor County is rescue friendly! If you are a rescue, please contact our Rescue Coordinator, Diana, at
