Reba, 5 year old black

September 2, 2017

Reba has been with us for 5 weeks now. She has integrated well into our pack of three male Labradors. Reba especially likes  to wrestle with our youngest boy. Reba is very playful, loves toys & is a very sweet. She loves people & wants to be your constant companion. Reba is scheduled for surgery in a few weeks to remove a large tumor under her front leg. I’m sure once that is removed, she will be running more freely. Reba will be available for adoption after she recuperates from surgery.

Sweet Reba has been with us for 8 days now. She is doing very well here.
My  three boys and Reba are getting along well. She is loose on walks in our very large yard, as well as in the house with my boys.  Great job Reba.

I took Reba to her new foster family this afternoon. Her foster mom and dad and I introduced Reba to their three male Labs.  The younger ones were quite exuberant but polite and Reba was a lady.  Reba’s foster family has a great fenced yard and very comfy set up inside for the dogs so I know Reba will be happy and comfortable (and spoiled!).  They will use gates for a while just to keep the boys from overwhelming her all at once.

Reba arrived yesterday from the PA SPCA and met her fur siblings  Dee helped with the intro and it went pretty well.  She was a little worried about the dogs coming too close at first but it has not lasted.  They are getting along fine now in the same room.  She seems to be totally housebroken (yahoo) – no accidents so far.  Reba slept in our TV room without a crate and with the company of my more laid back pup.  All quiet until 4:30 a.m. when Reba wanted to go out for a potty break.  Then back to sleep.

She does not have much appetite but I hope that will improve.  Does take dog biscuits gently though.

Reba has a very large lipoma on her side.  When she goes into regular foster care in a week, that can be checked out for removal.

Reba is very sweet and loving.  Does know how to get on a couch and even into my lap though I am trying to discourage that.  Also she is pretty good with cats.  Looks interested in them but turns away when I say No.  Does not pull hard on a leash either though we are not spending much time outside becauset of the heat.  She will make a great companion for someone!
