Della, a 7-year-old yellow lab/vizsla mix, originally arrived at the Popcorn Park shelter with a group from Georgia.
When Della, who arrived at a shelter in Georgia as a stray, came to Forked River she was thin and ill with heartworm.
Della got adopted and was in a home for several months before she was returned for “jumping on people.”
The lab mix not only needed some cleaning up and care upon her arrival, but she returned 40 pounds heavier.
Della is described as loving, playful, energetic and well behaved. She is house trained and walks well on a leash.
She would be good with kids, but no cats. Those interested in adopting Della, who has another dog, could set up a play date to see how they interact with each other.
To adopt Della, stop by Popcorn Park at 1 Humane Way to fill out an application. For more information call 609-693-1900.
