Hollie is a 9 year old petite lab female, weighing in at just under 50lbs - the perfect size! This sweet senior was surrendered to an overcrowded shelter because the other dog in her home was not playing so nice with her. But Hollie is as sweet as sugar and still loves everyone she meets! She is friendly with other dogs and mostly minds her own business after saying hello, but can often be found sharing a bed with her foster brother. She had probably never met a cat until recently, because when she first saw them in her foster home she thought they might like to play chase with her (they did NOT), but she responded well to redirection and has since lost all interest in the resident kitties and their hisses. But Hollie definitely LOVES kids! She currently lives with 6yr old and 4yr old boys whom she loves to run around the yard with and flip belly up for pets.
When it comes to happy and loveable dogs, you cant find anyone better than Hollie! Every person she meets is her favorite person and she would love nothing more than to spend her days cuddled on the couch with her family. Hollie is used to being kenneled at night and when home alone (those stinkin' cats need to run the house sometimes I guess) but she would likely do very well left out and she would be much happier. She lets you know how sad she is about being kenneled, but she quickly settles in. Whether in the kennel or on the couch, when she settles in, she really settles in! You may get noise complaints from your neighbors for her snoring. Don't tell her that she snores like a bear though, she's a lady! Speaking of, Hollie is potty trained but being an older lady, she would appreciate an extra potty break or two during the day. She hasn't been very interested in any toys yet, her world really just revolves around people and food. Like a typical lab, Hollie loves to follow her nose. She made her foster parents learn how to create a DIY dog proofing device on the dog food bin after a few break ins, so now she just has to clean up the crumbs and leftovers from the kids whenever she wants an extra snack.
Hollie's current foster family includes a stay at home mom, and Hollie would really love to stay in that type of a home where her family isn't gone much. She has a large affection quota to fill and she needs to spend all day loving people up! Did we mention that Hollie loves kids? She would be more than happy to share a home with respectful kids and even a canine companion or two! She can go to a home with cats that are dog-saavy, so her initial interest doesn't freak them out. Hollie may be an older lady but she has a lot of spunk and even more love to give to a lucky family!
