Black lab mix up for adoption

Stormy the black lab mix is up for adoption with 4 Luv of Dog Rescue in Fargo. I am featuring her on my blog because I started taking her for weekly runs, and I know what a great dog she is!

This mutt was so well behaved during our recent run. I hear she likes to pull when she sees other dogs, but we did not see anyone else. In fact, I was the one doing the pulling, encouraging her to pick up the pace!

Stormy’s foster owner is committed to training and has enrolled her in an obedience class at Red River North Dog Obedience Club.

Update: Stormy has been adopted!


Stormy will definitely have a head start on training for the lucky person who adopts her. She sat and stayed nicely while I took her picture.

I’m guessing she was happy to have my full attention! She is such a friendly, lovable dog. Her main “issue” is typical of a lab – high energy.

Still, Stormy is the kind of dog so many families are looking for – friendly with dogs, cats and people.

At the dog park, she loves to play with other dogs. She also gets along great with the other animals in her foster home – one dog and three cats! Not only that, but Stormy is housebroken and kennel trained. She doesn’t bark or cry when I put her in her kennel. Good girl!

I’m guessing Stormy is a black German shepherd and a black lab mix. Her long body and ears remind me of a shepherd, but who really knows?

I once had a blacklab/german sheperd who looked just like this dog,but he had a white spot on his chest.

I would contact 4 Luv of Dog Rescue in Fargo directly. Generally the rescue does not adopt dogs out to families who will not allow the dogs to live in the house as a member of the family.

In my opinion, a farm life would be ideal for Stormy. She is an active, smart dog who needs stimulation. If that's the kind of life you can give her, that would be awesome. However, if she is going to just be outside penned up most of the time, she would be miserable. She does get hot easily but her thick black coat will be beneficial when it gets cold.

I hope you or the other family will take a look at Stormy. I take her for walks/runs twice a week and she is a great dog.

Stormy looks like a great dog. We live on a farm with two houses. I am 77 and just put my yellow Lab Miss Money Penny to sleep 2 weeks ago. She would have been 15 in February. The other family on place want to find a dog that we can share and care for. Would Stormy be ok in a nice new dog house outside and just in house when weather is severe? Do you still have Stormy available. The family have a daughter in Fargo and come to visit her from time to time. They may want to check on Stormy
