Meet Abby! She is a 5-year-old lab mix, an ideal medium size, but is dense at just under 50 lbs. She’s big enough for a great snuggle but small enough not to take up too much space on the couch. She loves being with her humans and is a polite gal in the home. This silly girl loves to cuddle and lounge around the house. She is also happy to play ball outside and will show off her "tap" dancing skills. She is a couch potato that will SNORE the day away. 
 
Abby’s favorite activities include chasing sprinklers, sunbathing, snuggling on the couch, and playing the most leisurely games of fetch you’ll ever see. She loves all people but takes a longer time to get used to most dogs. She would prefer slow intros with smaller dogs that are as calm as she is. Abby is still working on her leash walking and obedience skills, but is happy to follow you around if you show her love!

Abby was found abandoned in a home and brought to her local shelter, where she spent many stressful nights. She has spent her time in her current foster home decompressing and retraining her that not all humans will abandon her. We don't believe Abby was properly socialized around other dogs and is very dog selective. She does better with smaller calm dogs, but this girl could be all the entertainment you need! Are you the type of person who loves when plans get canceled? Would you rather snuggle up on the couch with a movie than go out to a party? Well, then she's the perfect companion for you!

She will need an adopter who is willing to continue her training in her permanent home. Underdog is happy to make sure the adopter has as successful a transition as possible! She has been working on crate training, leash training, and basic obedience. She's a quick learner, but consistency is key.

Abby would do best with:
- Respectful & calm children
- Other small & calm dogs or as an only dog
- Cats not recommended
- An adopter willing to continue her in-home training (leash manners, crate training, etc).
