Kaya is a female 1-year-old black lab. She's a very friendly, happy dog who gets along with other dogs and cats. She is housebroken and knows several basic commands.

However, she is very food protective with other animals, so her new family would need to be cautious with food, treats, and accidental spills of human food if there are other animals in the home.

A few months ago, we told you about Frances, a 4 and a half Yellow Lab mix. a family adopted him a few months ago. Still, he is now back at the Herkimer County Humane Society because he and the other male dog in the house did not get along. Frances did have a good relationship with the female dog. It's tough for canines to reacclimate to shelter life after having a family of their own.

Frances came to Herkimer County Humane Society from a foster home affiliated with a high kill shelter in Louisana. His prior foster family reports that he is friendly, housebroken, and really good with most other dogs and cats. This guy is absolutely wonderful! Please share Frances as he would love a home.
