Hi, I'm Tulip!
I'm a 1 year old spayed female black Labrador Retriever / Mix.
Age: Approximately 1 year
Weight: 78 lbs
My Story: I'm a sweet 1 year old black Lab who is quite timid. I was surrendered because my owner doesn't believe in spaying and neutering but didn't want puppies. :/ (Here at the Humane Society of Jefferson County, all adoptable dogs, cats, and rabbits are spayed or neutered. Hooray!). I am very shy and need time to feel comfortable with new people. My adopter must treat me very gently and be prepared to go slowly with me to gain my trust. A securely fenced in yard would be ideal to keep me from running away if something frightens me. I came from the Monroe County shelter and the folks there said I'm good with most other dogs. Because of my age and breed, I have a good deal of energy and will need daily exercise to keep me happy. I'm approved for very respectful and gentle children over the age of 12. It will take some time for me to feel safe in my new home, but once I bond with my family I'll be a very loving and devoted companion! Tulip is approved for families with gentle and respectful children over the age of 12.
I have been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and I've received routine treatment for internal and external parasites. I have tested negative for heartworm.
If you are interested in adopting me, the first step is to submit an adoption application. You can download an application from the links below, attach the completed application to an email, and send it to the Humane Society of Jefferson County at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the application is received, the approval process will take approximately 1-3 business days and you will be contacted as soon as it is completed. Please contact the shelter at 920-674-2048 with any questions.
