Rachel is a beautiful white Labrador retriever-German shepherd mix. She’s about 8 months old and should weigh 50-60 pounds when full grown. Rachel is very affectionate, playful and good with other dogs. She’s friendly to everyone she meets and is the kind of dog whose love for life makes you happy just being around her.

All dogs are negative for heartworms, and cats have been tested for FeLV and FIV. For more information, visit DallasAnimalServices.org or call 214-671-0249.
