This beautiful girl is Mavis. She is a 65 lb black lab- dane mix, possibly with some pointer. Mavis is approximately 2 years old but she is still very much a puppy. She has recently learned sit and lay down but she is still working on shake and stay. Mavis is a big, clumsy girl and playfully very mouthy. She will easily knock over small children so she needs to go to a home with older children. Mavis is potty trained but she won't go potty on leash walks so she will need a fenced in yard. She is very clean about only going potty in one corner of the yard so clean up is fast and easy. She is crate trained and she loves her crate. It's her bat cave. She will hide in it when new people, especially men come around. She is very unsure around men but we have learned that she feels much more comfortable when another dog is around that isn't scared of men. Mavis would greatly benefit from having another dog in the house to help build her confidence and get out her puppy energy. She loves to be outside and go for hikes. Mavis loves dogs of all sizes and temperaments. She is ok with cats too. She has not lived with cats but has visited a house with them and will stare and sometimes point but has never chased them. Mavis will eat almost anything off of the floor, even lettuce. She can be your IROBOT vacuum. She likes to prewash dishes while you are loading them into the dishwasher too. She has a sleek coat and sheds very little. She is also very quiet aside from the happy thumping of her tail. Mavis is waiting for her furrever home. Her adoption fee is $200. Please call Teri at 630-897-7454 if you would like to meet her.
