Raina's Story

Raina, our sweet playful 2 year old Labrador Retriever, is looking for a special human. This human will need to understand that at first, she may not be inclined to reassure that human with displays of appreciation and affection. Raina is a happy dog, but can be anxious and fearful towards new people, especially when people touch her collar or neck area. Bonding is a careful process, and it cannot be rushed or achieved in a brief meeting. Raina just needs some time. 

While she learns that her new home will be a safe place, Raina would love to be outdoors, playing fetch with her toys or maybe a walk or run to explore the neighborhood. She also loves the company of other dogs and looks forward to the playgroups on the PAWS rooftop. She also knows all basic commands and walks well on a leash but would do best with additional training. Raina would be an awesome best friend to an active person or a family with no young children eager to welcome this girl into their home.
