Beautiful Knit is still getting settled and gaining confidence in her foster home. It will be several weeks before this shy girl is ready for adoption and she will need a quiet home where her people have experience with shy dogs.

Knit, a 2 year old Lab mix, was found in a drain pipe with her four puppies. She was very scared of humans and the big wide world, but a little kindness has gone a long way with this girl and slowly she is starting to open up in her foster home. Knit took such good care of her four fat happy puppies (all boys!) but now she has put parenthood behind her to get a little TLC herself. She has a beautiful long black coat and striking amber brown eyes. As beautiful and silky soft her fur is, she sheds a lot and needs to be brushed every couple of days. She is her foster mom's shadow and likes to stick close to her people, preferring to settle down in whatever room they are in. She loves pets and belly rubs and is very gentle taking treats. She has just started playing with toys and likes to gather them up in her bed or crate. Speaking of crate, Knit is both crate and housetrained. She does not need to be crated when you leave, although she would prefer a home where her humans are home more often than not. She is nervous about the leash, and due to her cautious nature, she will need a home with a securely fenced in yard for her. Slowly and surely, she is learning the leash and goes for a short walk every day. Her foster mom and foster dog siblings are helping her build her confidence walking on leash and walking longer distances. She gets along with her three foster dog siblings and watches them for cues on "how to dog". She likes to play and wrestle gently inside with her Corgi foster dog brother but isn't quite sure about running and playing chase outside yet. She is a little afraid of dogs that are too high energy and rambunctious so would do best in a forever home with a confident but easygoing dog sibling to continue to learn from and keep her company. Cats make her very uncomfortable and she will need a home without any kitties in it. According to Knit, kids of all ages, including teenagers, are also very scary so she will need an adult only home at this time.

Due to her shy nature, Knit will need a dog experienced family and would do best in a quiet, patient home that continues to work on her confidence and socialization. She likely won't be ready for adoption until the end of March. If you think you have the low key, dog-savvy, adult only home for Knit, then fill out an adoption application on our website today! We recommend completing the application process and connecting with a adoption coach before looking for a dog or puppy you'd like to adopt. If you're already approved to adopt or if you've adopted from Labs and More before, connect with your adoption coach for the next steps.

Your interest in adopting a rescued dog or puppy from Labs and More Rescue is appreciated! Please find our adoption information at www.labsandmore.org. Your adoption donation provides funding for Labs and More, a nonprofit organization which is supported solely by Volunteers and funded by donations. Good news is your adoption donation can be considered tax deductible. So much care is provided to your new dog prior to the adoption, including: spay and neuter, microchip, veterinarian visit(s), vaccinations, and other medical care as needed. Many of the dogs we rescue require extensive surgeries and care prior to adoption. Please understand we are unable to predict future behavior or medical needs of your adopted dog. We provide no guarantees regarding behavior, breed, or age of the dogs. Thank you for rescuing.
