Rose are red, violets are blue, Valentine is sweet, and this is true. You won't believe your good luck when you meet this precious love of a dog. Valentine is a gentle soul that has a nurturing and kind nature. Valentine is a Labrador Retriever mix at around 2 and half years old and weighing in at around a petite 37 pounds. Valentine is a looker in her own right and we can see why. Just take a look at that angelic face and soft spoken eyes with her black coat contrasting with the white on her chest. A dog like this doesn't come along everyday.
Valentine is a shy girl and it will take some time for her to warm up to humans and feel comfortable in new surroundings. It takes some gentle reassurance and TLC to get her to come out of her shell. She does great with other dogs and tends to take their lead which makes her feel more secure and unafraid. She enjoys running around with other canine playmates and once she is acclimated in a familiar setting she sets a course on fun dog activities. Those activities include playing with toys, enjoying doggie chews and treats. It doesn't get much better than that for her. It's easy to warm up to her with her sweet disposition.
Playing in the yard is on her list of favorite things to do. She has a medium energy level that she can use to play with other dogs and kids are also invited to the playtime party. Valentine is even cool with cats around. Valentine feels there is nothing better than an afternoon of fun with the gang. She gets the most fun she can out of running around the yard. She is an attentive girl that really loves to please her humans so she does listen and responds well to commands.
She is making progress on her leash training but still tends to be skittish outside the home. It doesn't slow her down though because she knows that with consistency in her training she will be top notch on her leash walking. Valentine is a smart girl and aims to please. She knows that she gets high marks for her house and crate training. She is quiet in the crate and will curl up on her dog bed for a night's rest. Although it is important to remember that an accident or two can occur when a dog is adjusting to a new home environment.
Valentine has had a rough road of difficulties that are now long in her past. It's all in her rearview mirror and she is concentrating on her bright future. She is ready to stop and smell the roses and live life with a carefree approach. Valentine is ready, are you?
