Tish's Info...

Tish's Story...
Tish is a sweetheart! She adapted so quickly and is honestly the best listening dog I have ever met. She is definitely loyal. She follows me everywhere! She loves everyone and eager and willing to please. She has a lovely coat. After I bathed her I couldn't believe how shiny and beautiful her coat is. Tish is a young girl approximately 10 months - 1 year old and weighs 40 lbs.


Here is what else her foster family had to say:


Tish is friendly and loves people of all ages. She would make a wonderful family pet. She is very gentle with our 6 yr old and especially our 6 month old. She makes sure to get out of his way when he is playing on the floor. Tish goes up to the baby and kisses his face and licks his hands delicately. I have no concerns with her around people. She always wants to be in the same room as me and would do well with a family who can devote that attention to her. She loves to please and does great with encouragement and positive reinforcement.


Tish did well with our 8 yr old male dog. It took a few days for her to calm down and stop trying to make him play. She listens so well that when you do need to separate them, she immediately stops and goes to lie down. She would be great as a second dog with another young dog to play with but would be equally fine on her own. She loves to play! She is very active and loves to please. She is so smart, she can fetch already. She would love toys. Tish loves to snuggle. She hasn't been allowed on our furniture (and has listened so well about it). She would love to jump up and sleep with me.


She would do well in a home with a yard to play in and children that would enjoy romping around with her. She will need further training as she is still a young dog but I am sure she will excel in obedience. She does not chew anything. She does mooch for food. We tell her to go lie down. She tried to get things off the counter but hasn't since we corrected it. She is excellent at commands. She can sit, come, tell her no (ie. if she's going upstairs and you don't want her to). She can drop the ball and I think she could heal when walking her if I had my hands free. She can stay but needs work. She is active and loves her walks. She learned how to fetch within minutes. She is on her way to being house trained. She is crate trained and is clean and quiet in her crate. She is out often and pees right away. She pulls on a leash right now but listens well. She just needs time to learn that.


Tish is so endearing! She is affectionate and just wants to give love. She loves to be close by and know you're there. Tish is very friendly, soft and gentle. She wouldn't hurt a fly. She is very loyal. Tish is very active and would do well with people who like to walk and play outside with her. She will be missed here. She is a happy happy happy pup and will make you feel loved. She has a cute personality. I hope she goes to a home where she is able to be free in the home and allowed room to play and snuggle.


If you would like to make Tish part of your family, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tish, a Hamilton 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 Hamilton, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamilton 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 Hamilton 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 Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
