Rescue or adopt Merry a 7 year old female lab mix great with kids - Smyrna TN

My name is Shelley Walters, and I was referred to you by Pet Adoption Service in Murfreesboro.  My family and I moved to Smyrna about two months ago, and we have a wonderful Black Lab mix named Merry.  Unfortunately, we are renting a home that is not a good fit for her, and I am hoping to find a loving family that would like to adopt her.
Merry is seven years old, and we adopted her from Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Southern California in September 2005 when she was about 8 months old. For the past seven years, she has been a wonderful member of our family.  She has never been to the vet for medical problems.  She has been spayed, and she is up to date on all her vaccinations.  She is a very mellow dog and is extremely gentle.  We have a two year old and a baby, and she is excellent with them both.  She is very much a people-dog, who enjoys hanging out with her family and going on walks.
We had a very difficult time finding a home to rent in the Nashville area and ended up settling on a house that has no fence (which I now know is common in TN).  The landlords will also only allow her in a small hardwood area of the home.  As a mother of two young children and a husband who travels for his job, I am not able to get her out on regular walks.  As a result, she spends her outside time tied up, and she is miserable.
The Pet Adoption Service said that you are awesome at helping find great homes for dogs!  Thank you so much in advance for your consideration. email -
