Meet Sasha. About 1 1/2 yrs old and 45 pounds, this housebroken girl is waiting to find her place in your heart. Her hair is so short that shedding is not much of an issue, an asset especially in the “Lab” world. Playful, curious, wanting to please, she can be both super energetic and a couch companion, whatever it is you want to do, she will do it with you. She is good with dogs, and while she may follow the cat around, still curious about that elusive creature, she has no issues with them. She would, though, be best with a dog more her size as she can tend to be dominant when playing and a small dog might be intimidated.
She’s been so friendly meeting everyone who walks through the door and will be fine with children. She does get excited when she sees you, so watch the toddlers, she just may mistakenly knock them over and then shower them with kisses. Or yourself for that matter. She so craves that scratch on the chin or pat on the head - give her that, and she is yours for a lifetime.
Sasha is a special dog that is looking for her special family. Sasha is a "people" dog and longs for a life with people that will spend time with her. She must have been left very alone in her past life, perhaps crated for hours on end since while she will go into the crate without issue, when you leave she will most likely find a creative way to get out. She sometimes whines/barks for a bit when you do leave, then usually settles down. Beware your return! If you want to be shown how much you mean to her, you’ll find out when you walk through the door.
If you are a homebody, this would be a perfect environment for Sasha. As with many young dogs, left too long to her own devices, she will get bored and invent something to do (which may not be quite what you had planned for your plants or possessions :) Sasha's ideal person/family would be an experienced dog owner, a strong, dominant leader, a home where she has a real "place" in the family and is not just an accessory. She is not the dog for a first-time owner or somebody looking for a perfect pet straight out. Time spent with Sasha needs to be quality time and include lots of bonding and activities together. Obedience work is a great way to bond with each other, socialize with other dogs, and for humans to learn how to think like a canine. This girl still needs some polishing up, but she is on the right track and headed for the finish line. She just needs a focused driver who will show her the way and stay on course with her. She really is a very sweet loving animal, longing to be shown the affection, to be given the security, to have the companionship that only a family to call her own can truly help her reach her full potential. Give Sasha a chance, she will repay you hundreds of times over with her loyalty and gratitude.
Spring is the time for new starts, new beginnings, new life to grow and blossom . Can you offer this to this special girl?
