Luna is a three-year-old Lab/pit mix who needs a home where someone will be with her most of the time.

She weighs 65 pounds, is spayed, vaccinated, treated for parasites and microchipped.

She loves most people but seems to be afraid of children, so she needs an adult only home. She gets along with other dogs but hasn’t been tested with cats.

Luna is house trained but not crate trained and is very anxious if left alone. She needs more leash training but is improving daily.

She has food allergies and needs to be fed a diet with no chicken or grain.

Luna’s adoption fee is $350.
