A Volunteer wrote: Jordan is a wee baby at 4 months and most likely just left her moms side. She at first was very shy when I wanted to take her out but once she knew I was on her side she relaxed a bit more. Once outside this 4 month old stuck by my side and was a bit unsure of herself until I brought out a ball. Someone must have showed her how to fetch because that is just what she did. There might be some lab in her DNA because she is a natural retriever. Jordan got into the zone and we played during our whole session together. This little piece of brindle chocolate is made for giving kisses and makes you fill like a million bucks. This munchkin needs a home of her own where she can grow up to big a big doggy and a great companion. If you are looking for a puppy to care for and are willing to make the commitment to a lifelong love companion you need to come to Brooklyn Animal Care and Control right away to meet this sweet girl.
