Storm is a 2 year old spayed female lab mix who is looking for her forever home! As most of her puppyhood was a cycle of getting adopted and returned to the shelter for being “too hyper”, Storm needs someone who can continue to teach her good canine behavior. Storm is a moderate to high
energy lab who needs that special someone to help her learn what is inappropriate puppy behavior.
After a long walk or letting her get her zoomies out in the backyard, she will settle down in the crate for a good while. She bonds very quickly and is very smart (sometimes too much!) and has learned the commands sit, lay down, stay, leave it and come. However, she still has that boundless puppy energy
and will jump/mouth new people in excitement. Once she bonds with you though and you show her your boundaries, she’s very respectful and loves a good petting/brushing session. Like most labs, Storm is food motivated which makes training her much easier. She would be a great candidate for “work” activities like agility as she loves to please. Once you get the treats out and start asking her tricks, she gets very attentive towards you. Her favorite toys are chew and rope toys. Storm is also house and crate trained.
Storm does have a bite on her record - though as it was explained to me, the older couple that had adopted her were attempting to pry something out of her mouth. The couple did not receive any medical attention but Storm was still designated. Storm has not attempted to bite anyone while in foster, however, when excited she will exhibit puppy mouthing behavior which can be stopped by making her sit.
Due to her size, energy level and requirement for continuing basic training, the foster recommends an experienced owner and a household with no children or cats. Storm shows positive interest in dogs, however is very pushy (much like the rest of her manners!) and until she learns to calm down more we recommend no dogs.
Storm is looking for her forever home and her adoption fee is $200.
