Sydney, who has appeared as the Stu News featured Pet of the Week, is still looking for a forever loving home. She’s approximately 11 months old and a Labrador mix. Full of high energy, she needs her parent to lead an active lifestyle that includes her.  Sydney enjoys chasing toys, companionship with humans and other dogs, walking, running, hiking, etc. She’s an adventurous girl. Medium in stature, she is perfect if you have been looking for a large dog but half the size.
