My story

🦋🦋I’M LOOKING FOR YOU 🦋🦋

My name is Slush and I am an 8 month old lab mix. I weigh approx. 39lbs but am still growing. How big will I get? We aren’t too sure, you will just need to wait and watch me grow. I am vaccinated and microchipped.

Two important things you need to know about me is that I did come down with a skin condition called Demodex but I have been taken care of by this wonderful rescue and am all clear now. Demodex can come back in the future if I am under stress. A visit to the vet and treatment would be required to get rid of it. I also showed a grade 2 heart murmur at my last vet visit, this may or may not go away as I grow up. I can still live a happy, exciting life with my new family even with these conditions as long as I’m looked after.

Okay, enough with the boring stuff! Let me tell you about how awesome I am! I have calmed quite a bit in the home now and am getting used to the rules. I love to just lay around and chill on a dog bed with a toy or my foster moms dog. I know that playing is for outside but man, when I get out there I can play. There is another older dog here and he and I are getting to know each other. Slow introduction is always best, He has a loud bark but I know that’s just him saying hello to me. I’m good at recognizing when he needs space. And him for me as well. Mutual respect. As for cats, I met a few when I was at at temporary foster home. I came face to face with them and didn’t really care much about them. I did try to play with one but they weren’t interested so I gave up and went on my way.

A love a good game of fetch or tug! Any toys laying around the house? No problem, I love toys! I’ll clean them up and stash them all on my bed for you. If you give me stuffed animals just be prepared to clean up a mess because I like to shred them.

I am amazing in my crate! I am use to being in there anytime foster mom is out and we also practice when she’s home too. I am quiet almost all of the time. There are two times when I used to get loud. One when I thought you were going to feed me and two, when you come home. I’m was just so excited that you are home and want to hang out with you and I couldn’t contain my excitement. Now I am calmer and don’t do this anymore. Isn’t that fantastic. Please ignore me if I try this at your home until I am quiet when you come home or feed me this will help to teach me that I don’t get let out or fed if I am being . You don’t need to cover my crate or give me a blanket inside, I don’t mind the plastic bottom. I used to chew holes in the blanket but I don’t do that anymore. If I started to chew holes in them at your home simply take them out of the crate.

Here is the really amazing part I want to share with you! I have been working really hard with a FTH volunteer daily on my walking skills. I no longer pull to get to other dogs or people when walking by, I know that’s rude. I still make a grumble or bark a little when I first see dogs coming head on but it’s getting so much better and with consistency and teamwork I know I’ll have that out of my system in no time. I love going on walks and I love going to the beach/park to play and rest after.

I haven’t had an accident in the house in a long time. Foster mom has a pretty strict schedule though. I go out first thing in the morning, then after my meals, after a nap, or playtime and any training work and before bed.

Oh! Another thing I have been working on is CAR RIDES! I get in all on my own now and I haven’t gotten sick in the car in a very long time. I understand now that if we are going in the car it probably means we are doing something fun! Foster mom will tie me into the car to keep me safe from wandering and I’ll just lay down. Sometimes she gives me a KONG if it’s a long ride to keep me busy!

There are no kids in my foster home but I have lived with kids aged 12 and 14 and have been around younger children as well. I do very well with all ages but I have been known to jump up! I don’t mean or want to hurt anyone but I can be pretty strong and don’t want to knock anyone over. We are working really hard on this and showing improvement every single day.
I will need to go to a home with children over 3yrs of age.

I pretty much have “sit” mastered. The problem I have is to stay sitting, This is also getting better every day. Progress right! Foster mom will not give me the treat until I am sitting nicely and waiting. You will also want to ask me to take the treat “NICE”. I am working on “out”! As most everyone knows, puppies love to pick things up and chew them, foster mom uses this word for me to release whatever I may have in my mouth that I shouldn’t. It is coming along very nicely and with consistency I know I will master this as well.

It is important to keep me on leash inside and out for at least 30 days, this is to create a bond and it helps me understand the rules and boundaries you are setting in place for me.

Why adoption is a great option

Slush, a Oro-Medonte 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 Oro-Medonte, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Oro-Medonte.

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