Plenty of Pets

Luna is the newest arrival at Good Bones Dog Rescue and she will soon be ready for adoption.

She’s a medium energy level dog who is timid when first meeting people. Sudden movements and loud noises scare her. She lacks confidence and is only comfortable with certain dogs. She needs some leash training as she currently pulls when being walked.
Luna is thought to be a German Shepherd/ Lab mix. She’s two years old, spayed and vaccinated.
She needs a home where there are no children.
