Chinook is a 9 month old female black lab mix. She was found as a young puppy abandoned on the streets with her sister, Onyx. Both girls were nursed back to health in North Carolina by their savior, Dr. Kevin Matthews. Since then, it has been a team effort by Mary Ann Merrill and the women that work with her to get these girls ready to go. Chinook was very nervous and timid in new environments, but has since become a confident, happy dog who loves to work. She came for her final training and was a joy to work with. What she lacks in size she more than makes up for with her playful, sweet, personality.
