Eva is a sweet, energetic young female yellow Labrador dog. She came to me through a rescue group in California via my sister in Las Vegas. Some of her favorite activities include going on walks, playing endless fetch, and car rides!  She enjoys chewing on her bones, chest rubs, and earning treats for learning. She is crate trained, harness trained and house broken. She interacts well with adults and older children. Eva has a tendency to show aggression towards other animals, which is why we are looking to re home her. She would do best in a home with no other animals. During her time with my family Eva has learned some basic obedience through The Canine Center for Training. She is looking for that special active person or family that is willing to take her to the next level! She is spayed, microchipped, current on vaccinations through Austin Vet Care (Dr. Brandes) and is HW negative.
Contact Mandy A Riordan at 512.694.6693 if you're interested in meeting Eva.

His referral fee and medical expenses are being sponsored by the Texas Critter Crusaders. The adoption fee for Junior is $80, he is neutered, current on vaccinations and is HW negative.
