“Pick me! Pick me! I might just be the cutest Lab mix in the Lone Star State with my cute ears. My name is Shadow, and I’m up for adoption in Texas!” Poor Shadow has been up for adoption for a YEAR and all he wants is a home this holiday season!!

He is about two years old, and he weighs about 50 pounds. He seems OK with cats. Like a typical young dog, Shadow has lots of energy and loves to play. But he does very well in his crate and can be calm. He’d be a great hiking buddy or possibly running pal (when it’s not 100 degrees out, of course!) He gets along with most dogs; for some reason, he isn’t a fan of one dog he knows. We’re not sure why. So if an adopter has another dog, we’d recommend a meet and greet first.

Shadow has been non-reactive to cats, though. In fact, we had him cat tested, and we were told, “The cats checked him out from afar, then jumped right down and started rubbing on him. He wasn’t so sure about it, but he stayed calm and gave no red flags.” Shadow was originally adopted from Lucky Lab when he was a puppy during the pandemic. Several months later he was returned to the rescue because his owners were busy with their kids and had no time to train him–he was a bit of a wild child.

We’d like anyone who adopts Shadow to be an experienced dog owner and continue the positive reinforcement training he’s received since he was returned. We think Shadow is very smart and would love the stimulation and attention he receives during training. He’d do best in a home with a fenced-in yard and adults and or adults and kids over 15. Shadow also needs exercise and playtime to exercise his own inner puppy. Shadow has a lot of love to give, and we’d love for him to find a wonderful forever home. He is very loyal. He’s housebroken, vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. Apply at
