ADOPTED ON 08-07-14: Loving and loyal, Linda came to us from a high kill shelter in Louisiana. She is a three year old, 46 pound, black lab mix. She gets along well with children and other dogs of all sizes. Linda is looking for a forever couch to cuddle on. Linda’s pups were never found, we can only imagine what it must have been like for a mamma dog alone to feed and protect her babies. Whatever happened to her babies had happened quickly because when she and two other dogs were picked up by animal control at a Post Office in Winnsboro, LA on August 23, 2013, it was obvious she had been nursing.
LINDA’S FOSTER SENT IN THIS UPDATE:
Linda’s is a wonderful dog and all she wants is love, her foster mom has told us. Mom says that whoever adopts Linda is going to get a great dog. She is house and crate trained; get along with her two dogs and every dog that comes over to visit. She finds Linda to be easy to trained and very willing to please.
The dogcatcher was sent back to look for her babies but none were found. She has spent the past seven months in a tiny cage only getting out twice a week when the volunteers go to walk the dogs.

It’s difficult to sum up a dog’s personality when they are in a dog pound, however, when the Winnsboro Dog Pound gets a new dog they are under the protection of a loving volunteer. Her primary focus is on two issues: physical health and temperament. She examines and analyzes the dog for any medical issues, and then she begins preventive medicine, de-worming and vaccinations right away. Linda was spayed on March 19, 2014; she has been fully vaccinated and de-wormed.
Once a new dog has settled into this very loud new environment at the dog pound, the founder starts the evaluation process and “pushes some buttons” to see what the dog is made of. Through that process Linda has passed every test. She listens to correction and will turn and look for direction when asked; she is a good dog with no behavioral problems.
Schoolchildren regularly volunteer to walk the dogs on leash. The older children volunteers often walk Linda and she has shown that she can be trusted.
While she has been under the supervision of the WDP, Linda enjoys the attention of people and other dogs. She has a moderate activity level and she is very responsive and easily corrected.
She is happy with a human by her side and will make someone out there a great friend. In return, she promises years of devotion and unconditional love.
