Sadly, we are looking to re-home our 6 year old female yellow lab. She needs more attention than we are able to give at this time. She would do well with a loving family that would give her lots of attention but needs to be an only dog. Please read this post carefully and understand her unique personality. We need a patient family that will become her forever home. The Good: She is house trained and doesn't chew. She is loyal and protective and GREAT with kids. Our little kids could crawl all over her, pull ears and tail and she just loved it! She is very sweet, loving and just wants to be near you and pet all the time. She is not hyper, especially for a lab. She likes to fetch tennis balls. She does listen well and is trained to stay on a rug in the house, sit, lay down, come. She is up to date on shots and has been spayed. Her personality is loving and she just wants to be with you and pet as much as possible. Problems: She will eventually get out of pretty much any kennel or yard if she's left alone. She does well if left in the house or garage during the day when you're gone. If you're outside, she won't run off, but left alone for a while she will. She sheds a lot and needs to be brushed pretty regularly if in the house. She will dig if chained up. She is protective which is a mixed bag, she will bark at anyone coming to the house and will act like she's going to be aggressive, but will settle down and accept new people easily once you tell her to and she knows they are fine with you especially if they pet her! She has NEVER bitten a person, adult or child. She likes food and will steal food from kids or if food is left out. She will get into the trash if she can. She has never had much training on a leash and does pull pretty hard, but will listen if you reprimand her (she likes to please, so is easy to correct behavior). She has attacked the neighbors chickens and did get into a fight with another dog just recently when she was at a new home being adopted so I'm guessing she was in a competitive situation for attention and overly stressed being in a new environment. I don't know the full circumstances of that situation, however she has never before attacked another dog and I've had her since she was 8 weeks old. I just want you to be aware that it will be best if she is kept away from other dogs until she has adjusted to you as her new owner and can be introduced to other dogs cautiously. She has a dominant personality so she really needs an owner who will assert dominance over her and be her 'pack leader.' I am an alpha type owner and she is submissive towards me and constantly seeking my approval and attention. I'm sure she will have a bit of an adjustment period to being in a new environment and she will need an owner that will be patient and firm to get through the transition. We are asking for $100 re-homing fee and would like to bring her to you, meet you and your family and see your home to make sure this is a good fit for her. My main concerns are that she would be an only dog, get lots of attention, be in the home regularly with you/the family and that you would be her forever home. An apartment or small yard would be fine for her because she is not hyper. She really is a sweet and loving dog and I know with the right family she would make wonderful addition to your home!
