Izzy

I’m Izzy, a 6-year-old spayed female Lab mix. I didn’t think my life would turn out like this, sitting in a shelter, sharing a kennel with a stranger. I was in a home when I was younger. I was loved by the family and was very happy. I am gentle, get along with other animals and children. I am housebroken and have gone to obedience school! My only fault is I take thyroid meds … and what lady my age doesn’t? I don’t understand why my family left me here.
