SHADOW IS MY NAME

Shadow is waiting in the shadows at WLA ID#A1253212
This handsome boy's name is Shadow. He is a 1 yr. 3 mo. old neutered black Labrador Retriever mix who has been at the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter since Sept. 27, 2011. He weighs in at a lean 58 lbs. and has a beautiful shiny black coat.
Black dogs have a tough time in animal shelters. They are often the last dogs to be adopted and the first dogs to be put down because of weird superstitions that people may have against a "black" dog. Of course, in reality, black dogs are as wonderful and precious as any dog would be.
Shadow is absolute proof of that. He is so eager to please his person. He is easy to collar and walks well on leash including walking through the kennel. He doesn't react to the other dogs barking at him as he passes by. He is a great dog in both the small yard and the large play yard. He likes to play ball but it is not his favorite thing to do. Most of all he likes to hang out with his person. He recently passed the temperament testing done by K9 Connection. He gets along with other dogs and has enjoyed playing in the yard with one of his shelter buddies.
Shadow is a great dog who is eager to have his own bed, his own home and most of all his own person. He would make a loyal and loving companion for some lucky person. Please don't let the shelter be the last home for this beautiful, black dog named Shadow.
