If you would like to be greeted with happy excitement when you return home, Momma Labbie is your girl. She'll run up to you and kiss you as much as she can. Then she'll want to lay down and cuddle with you.

This playful girl enjoys being with humans more than any other mammal. She's met people on her walks and can be a little hesitant at first, then warms up to them quickly. Dogs and cats, not so much. Now in foster care, she's been skittish with the neighboring dogs - and the foster's cat. Instead, she loves being with her fosters, going for nice leash walks and staying by their sides.

At home, she loves cuddling and wrestling with them, then taking naps much of the day. She also enjoys being in the backyard and is something of a space cadet there. She rolls around on her back and stares at the sky, watching the clouds float by. She loves peanut butter and chew treats and answers to "sit for them. She is a house-trained girl who does well in her crate with her chew toys. And she behaves well when her fosters are away.

Momma will love a home with parents who are with her most of the day. She does take lots of naps, so won't require them all day. She also loves hanging out in backyards, so won't insist on long walks. And she'll hope to be the only pet. Come meet this lovable girl. And see more about her on Instagram: @alifostersatx
