Kelly's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Kelly's Story...
Kelly is a sweet and very affectionate puppy that seems eager to please everyone around her. She loves being around people and has a lot of energy and love to give. She is a very friendly and happy puppy. She is a quick learner and seems eager to please. Kelly is approximately 10 months to a year old and currently weighs 41 lbs.

Here is what else her foster family had to say:

Kelly looks like her paws are a little big for her and that she might be a little younger than first thought. She is very much a puppy still with the puppy energy and awkwardness. She has lots of energy and will need regular exercise to keep her mind and body in good health. Typical Labrador puppy :)

She is very friendly with all the people she has met. She wants to play with our dogs constantly and is friendly with them, but she needs to learn when they have had enough play time. She is a social butterfly and just wants to run and jump and play with everyone and every dog she meets.

Kelly appears to have had some initial training but will need someone that is willing to work on this. She does not know any commands yet other than come, which is a great start! She will jump around you, but it seems like someone has taught her not to jump up on people. We are currently working on sit with her. She will beg for food and does not seem to have any boundaries with that yet, but she will not counter surf. She chews constantly on her chew toys but has not tried to chew any furniture and seems content as long as she has enough toys around. She is fully house trained, she runs to the door as soon as she leaves her crate to go outside. She seems mostly fine in her crate and we are using her crate at night, when we go out and when she needs some down time. She will need work with leash training and will jump around a lot, but she's not a puller. I think leash training her will come easily. She has not tried to escape, the door we use is the side door for her that leads into our backyard and she will wait nicely and does not try to bolt out the door. She was great in the car, looked out the window and no barking.

Kelly is quiet in the house. She is not a big barker at any time. Her favourite things to do are play, run, fetch, jump, be outside, chew her toys and sit on your lap.

Kelly will need someone who can spend time finishing her training and that understands the boundless energy of a lab puppy. She would do well with a family but needs room to play inside and outside to burn off her energy. She is friendly with other dogs but does not know yet when the other dog has had enough, so she may be too much for an older dog to handle.

If you think Kelly would be a good addition to you family, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kelly, a Hamilton Flat-Coated Retriever/Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Flat-Coated Retriever/Labrador Retriever for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Flat-Coated Retriever/Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Hamilton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamilton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hamilton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Flat-Coated Retriever/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Flat-Coated Retriever/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
