Abby Needs a Quiet Home…

E-mail Print PDF

Abby is a beautiful young 60 pound Lab Mix with plenty of energy. She needs an experienced dog person, who will give her the time and patience she deserves. She loves other dogs, but needs to be placed in a home with no small children.

Born in November of 2011, Abby became a resident of the animal shelter in May of 2012 and adopted in July of that same year. Her new home did not work out, and she found herself back in the shelter on October 24, 2012…where she has patiently been waiting for the right person to discover her.

That is over 480 days of waiting…

She is thinking that is Baron Von Willie could find his home after such a long time, that her time for finding a loving forever home can’t be far off!

Please call or visit the Potsdam Humane Society (265-3199) if you think that Abby might be the dog for you. Give her a chance. Foster her with the idea that if it works out…she will be your loyal companion.
