Update: Lady had a great day at the adoption event last week. She enjoyed meeting all the dogs and people. She's really great with other dogs in play groups and at the dog park, but she has shown that she would prefer to be the only dog in her forever home. Lady is such an easy foster! After a couple days where she often hung out on the floor or in her open crate, she's now taken to relaxing on the couch or the dog bed and enjoys sleeping in bed with her foster mom at night. She is completely house trained and loves her walks, playtime and making her rounds greeting the humans and dogs at the local park. She's currently in a suburban townhome, and is doing well there.
Update: Lady is a Velcro sweetheart! FM finds herself singing the Styx song Lady – “Lady, when you're with me I'm smiling…” to her because this girl melts hearts with her trusting eyes and awesome Lab lean. She warms up quickly to new people, loves attention, and just wants to be loved by her humans. She is calm for one so young and is making excellent progress with learning new commands, especially since she’s treat motivated. She has done well meeting dogs, and humans of both genders, and has played beautifully with a few dogs she has met. This lovely Lady is a little thief who will steal your heart if you let her.
Update: Lady is really shy when meeting new men - females seem to be okay, so she has to go to a home with a female as the primary caretaker, at least in the beginning. She continues to slowly warm up to foster's adult son, even jumping in his lap on the couch. She needs to go to a home in a quiet neighborhood since unexpected noises spook her. Lady is interested in other dogs during walks and will do well with a compatible canine companion, or by herself. She knows sit, down, come, and her name. Lady is waiting for the right family to scoop her up!
Lady is a very sweet girl. She was a little shy at first but relaxed after a few minutes. She seemed to enjoy the attention. Lady wagged her tail with other dogs and people walking by. She met my Lab and just sniffed him and wagged her tail. Lady just needs a patient and loving family that will give her the love and attention she deserves.
Update: Lady came to the Adoption Event and is a very sweet girl! She loved all the attention and sat nicely for treats and lovin' from all the visitors. She's settled in to her foster home nicely and we've determined that she would do just fine as an only dog. She has a big personality and a lot of love for her humans!
