Skye's Info...

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

Skye's Story...
Sky was rescued from an extremely high-volume shelter and placed by Barlee's in 2005. Her adoptor contacted us in March, saying that due to changes in the family she was no longer able to keep Sky. We are expecting Sky back in the first half of April and she will be going into foster care.

Sky is a yellow mostly Labrador Retriever with a nice laid back disposition. She is slightly overweight and has a sensitive stomache, so she should be kept on foods that agree with her. We will be working to take a few pounds off her and get an assessment of her in home. Her adoptor reported that she is great with other animals and all people, except intolerant of smaller kids. We will be reassessing in foster care. She's a laid back girl friendly dog who did well for 3.5 yrs in her adoptive home.

This is what Sky's owner had to say about her:

"Sky is a very low key/low energy dog..........she does however love going for walks and you would think she was a puppy again with the excitement she shows when she sees her leash. Sky knows all her basic commands (sit, shake, speak, stay). She has good recall off leash. Sky is housetrained. She has only had one accident in the house in the last 4 years and that was just after a move so I'm sure it was stress. Sky gets along with other dogs. For the most part she is indifferent to them. She's not interested in playing with them but she is very tolerant of their antics. Sky also gets along well with cats. She has 2 at home right now. The one that is in the picture with her literally walks on her and cleans (or attempts to clean) her ears. Sky is not a barker. She generally only barks when someone is around "her" house/yard or when the doorbell rings/door knocks. Sky is definitely not an outside dog either. She enjoys being outside if her people are there, but she is not interested in being left out for any length of time. Sky loves to be loved. She would let you rub her belly for hours if you wanted to. Giving you big kisses in return. She also likes to sleep with you at night if you let her.

Sky does appear to have some sort of food alleries. She also has weight issues. Through much discussion with her vet and trial and error we have sky on a food plan that seems to be working really well for her skin and her weight!!!!! She is on NUTRO weight management for large breeds. Her skin is in the best condition I've ever seen it. And she's getting back down to a healthy weight. She was at the vet in January and weighed 100lbs. She had lost 10lbs since her last visit in the summer. The vet would like to see her anywhere in the 90's. I had her tested for a thyroid condition last summer and her thyroid is fine. Sky's skin seems to react to food with a lot of chicken in it. I try to stay away from any thing that says chicken flavored or all natural chicken. Sky is not on any daily medication. I wouldn't reccommend Sky living in a home with children. She appears to be fine with children for short periods of time."

Updates will be posted as we get to know Sky again.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skye, a Guelph Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Guelph, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Guelph.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Guelph 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 Guelph 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 Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Guelph paves the way for another one to be saved.
