About Janet

  • Status: Available for Adoption (adoption info)
  • Species: Dog
  • Rescue ID: 21409
  • General Color: Brindle
  • Current Size: 48 Pounds
  • Current Age: 2 Years 2 Months (best estimate)

UPDATE 7/4/21:  This dog is so beautiful, she is like a song (the tune of the Girl from Ipanema). 


Tall and dark, and young, and lovely

the dog from Nelson County goes walking,

and when she passes, each one she passes, goes “Ah.”


When she walks, she’s like a samba

that swings so cool, and sways so smoothly

that when she passes, each one she passes, goes”Ah.”


It’s hard to believe this wonderful dog was abandoned. Not only does she have a spectacular dark brindle coat in shining condition, but her greatest desire seems to be making the world a happier place. So far, she wants to be friends with every stranger—both human and dog.  When she met our confined cats she was curious but respectful.


Janet, who is about 2 years old and weighs 48 pounds, is enthusiastic and ready to accomplish all necessary skills to become a great house-pal and family member. She loves to play. She is in the process of learning good leash behavior, how to take things gently, and how to be quiet.  She has mastered SIT and is getting really good at WAITING.


This girl is a real opportunity for folks who would love an outstandingly gorgeous young dog with high intelligence.
