Kenya

Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat)
Age: Senior
Size: Large
Color: Black
Sex: Female

Prefers no dogs
Prefers no cats

Born in 2006, Kenya came to the sanctuary from a Utah shelter. Here at the sanctuary in Kanab, she and her trainers have been working hard on some behavior issues. Although she is calm and friendly when meeting people on a leash, she is protective of barriers and can seem a bit fierce on the other side of a fence or gate. In fact, she has bitten, so she needs a very special home. Also, she loves to play with toys and with people, but she does not get along with other dogs.

Kenya is looking for a home with a dog-savvy person (or people) who can see her potential and will continue to work with her. She would be thrilled to meet you if you think she might be a good fit!

Kenya is part of our Single Pets* program! That means that she is eligible for a free flight home and waived adoption fee!

*Single pets do best as the only dog or cat in the home.
