We have had her since she was 8weeks old. She is 7years old and was diagnosied with arthritis in her elbow at a one year old, she had two successful surgeries that really helped her and her pain is gone. She also has hip dyspalsia that we manage with a daily anti inflammatory. She is such a Sweet girl and very loyal but I now have grandkids that climb on her back and she has snapped and nipped most recently at a one year old. My granddaughter climbed on her back while she was sleeping and she grazed her teeth across her head. Did not draw blood but I have several more grandkids on the way and can not be worried about her snapping at them. We have a younger lab also that is very tolerant of kids but I think because she has had pain so she is more nervous. She is well behaved, follows all commands and has been trained in obedience. She is mellow and doesn't need a lot of exercise though she loves to go on walks and run in open fields. I watch my grandkids quite often during the day and I can't trust her with toddlers so I have to find a good home for her soon. My husband wants to euthanize her if we can't find a home for her.
