Update:: Labby Girl continues to do fabulous in her foster home. While she would prefer to be the only dog in her forever home, she has such wonderful manners. She is house trained and has full run of the house when her foster family is gone for the work day. She doesn't need to be crated. She does stairs just fine. She loves her humans and is happy to cuddle with you on the couch. She sleeps peacefully through the night on a dog bed. She loves meeting new people and will immediately roll over on her back for belly rubs. She's done great losing weight on a weight management food and LOVES going for walks. At walk time she jumps up and down with excitement - it's adorable! She is a dream walking on leash. She doesn't show much interest with the resident felines and would be fine if her forever home has a cat.
Update: Labby Girl has been such a wonderful foster. She is very affectionate and would love a family of her own who will shower her with lots of belly rubs. She loves to cuddle on the couch while foster mom is watching television and any time we approach her to pet her, she’ll immediately lie down and roll over on her back for belly rubs. She walks great on leash and really enjoys her walks. During the day while foster mom is working from home, she cuddles up on one of the dog beds and naps. She’s house trained and has full run of the house when the fosters go out. She will sit for treats and takes them ever so gently. If you’re looking for an affectionate girl who will reward you with unconditional love, look no further than Labby Girl.
Update: Labby Girl is house trained and does not need to be crated – she has run of the house when her fosters are out. She is fine with cats – completely ignores them. She walks great on leash and loves to go for walks. She takes treats very gently and knows “sit”. She has perfect house manners. While foster mom is working from home, she is quite content to nap on one of dog beds. She loves belly rubs. Labby Girl does well with the resident dogs in her foster home, but seems to prefer the male dogs to the females and would like to be the queen.
Watch Labby Girl wag her tail:
Nov 21, 2016: Labby Girl is a very sweet, quiet girl who loves being around people. She walks nicely on a leash and remains calm even when there is chaos going on around her (such as a busy animal shelter). Labby Girl likes affection and will ask for belly rubs. She gets along fine with other dogs. We do not know how she is around cats. Labby Girl's owner could no longer afford to care for a dog and so surrendered her to an animal shelter. She is approved for kids ages 10 and up. More on Labby Girl as we get to know her.
