Reishi is a mixed puppy with strong lab/pitbull features. She is mostly black with white markings along her chest and up to her chin. Her eyes are unusually dark brown, and her ears in particular are the stereotypical “puppy”, partially floppy, partially pointed ears. She also has a little fluff whirl at the end of her tail that is adorable beyond all words.
Reishi is intelligent, independent, and sweet tempered. She is very treat oriented which makes training easy - she already understands sit, lay down, and come (when she wants to). She is also being taught wait/stay, and heel. She can be free fed - she’s uninclined to over eat, and often will eat a few bites at a time throughout the day. She is very quiet, and tends not to bark inside or out. The exception is if she wants something - usually to play - she can be a bit demanding! She enjoys playing, and will happily play tag, tug, or wrestle with you. She also understands “gentle” if she gets a little carried away. On the other hand, she is very happy to be a lazy couch potato 99% of the time, and will happily snuggle with you for hours on end.
Reishi gets along with pretty much everyone. She is very sweet and just wants to play! She is particularly enamoured with her foster sister, a young adult german shepherd, who she will follow around and emulate all day every day. She has been very good with kids and other dogs she’s met. While she has been around chickens, she has not been formally introduced to any non-canine animals.
At Laramie Animal Welfare Society, the first step to adoption is completing an adoption application on our website www.laramieanimals.org. Once submitted, your application will be reviewed by our adoption team which typically takes up to 7 days. Keep in mind, the kitten/cat you’re interested in when applying may be adopted and no longer available by the time your application is approved. We do not place animals on hold. Pending approval, your application is valid for 6 months. Also pending approval, you will receive contact information, so that you may inquire about the personalities of specific animals. Due to COVID-19, we are highly encouraging foster homes and adopters to speak with one another via phone or video chat to limit in-person contact. If meeting in person at a foster home or at our adoption center, everyone is encouraged to wear masks and socially distance. Adoptions for individual animals will occur by private adoption appointment. Because we are 100 % foster-based, appointments are scheduled pending staff, foster home, and vetting schedules. Should you want to proceed with the adoption, a brief appointment will occur at our adoption center to sign adoption paperwork, receive medical records, and pay the adoption fee.
**Dog/Puppy applications -
Because of the large volume of dog/puppy applications we are receiving these applications may take longer to process, please be patient. We do not do first come first serve but we place the dog/puppy in the best suited home. If you have questions about the Dog/Puppy process please email Dogs@laramieanimals.org**
