Becky has been such a joy to have in our lives the past 2 weeks. She is a Velcro dog who follows us wherever we go!She was spayed on Tuesday and is recovering nicely. We plan to make her available mid week and choose her forever home in about a week or so. She has her follow up to her spay and stitches removal next Tuesday 3/29 and will be ready to meet her adopters after that!
As Becky has come out of her shell, she’s started to get a little adventurous when we leave her alone with the resident dog. We do think she may have a small amount of separation anxiety. She does a little counter surfacing and swoops down what she can find. She leaves mosts things alone that are already all over the house. We may try a crate and see how she does this week. She’s usually only home alone for a few hours at a time. Considering she never was in a house before, she’s still a well behaved dog.
Because of this, we do think she will do best with a family who has a human who is home during the day. She would likely love to have another dog sibling as well.She has had a few accidents in the house when we are distracted and miss her cues, but she’s generally house trained. She loves her walks and to race around the yard. Since she is only 4, she definitely would benefit from a family who exercises her daily. But she calms easily and has a good energy level. She is a great sleeper over night too!
She will do great with a family who reinforced some of the manners training we’ve been working on (mostly “off”) as she will occasionally jump up to meet new people. And the counters sometimes.She’s on the shorter side, so she’s not a huge lab. We are working on helping her lose a few pounds too.
Becky looks forward to meeting her furever family soon!

We have had the pleasure of being loved by our latest foster Becky for the last week!
This 4 year old black lab is so loving and gentle. She’s amazing with my kids and our resident lab. She loves cuddles and walks and racing around the backyard.Becky is a sweetheart. She is a gentle soul. She is generally calm with a little bit of normal lab energy. She is very scared of school buses and trucks, so we are working on comforting her during those drivebys.
She had a blast racing around the backyard in todays snow. She gets spayed on Tuesday, and assuming all goes well, she will likely be available for adoption next weekend. We are enjoying all of our time we are blessed to spend with this sweet girl who is waiting on her furever home.

Becky continues to do great!
She’s getting better walking on leash and enjoys every walk. She loved to take in all the sights and smells. She wags her tail the whole time and gets happy passing other dogs.She’s getting better doing the stairs each day and has learned to jump up into bed for some welcome snuggles!Life off the farm is looking good on this girl.

Becky has settled into her second day nicely. She is incredibly mellow so far.
She went on a handful of walks today, and loved smelling all the new smells.
She napped a lot too. She takes treats gently, hasn’t chewed anything inside, and goes potty outside.She was left alone for about 90 minutes.We gated her in the dining room. She pushed through the gate and got herself locked in the bathroom and was incredibly content when we returned.She gets along well with everyone she has met and just seems to smile and wag her tail all day.

Becky is settling in so wonderfully after such a whirlwind day! This 4 year old black beauty is all sweetheart. She was pulled from a farm this morning after living her life as a breeding mom.She has a very calm disposition so far. She’s definitely a tad nervous but loves affection and snuggles. Amazingly, she went right up the hardwood stairs within an hour or so of being inside. She’s definitely cautious coming down them, but doing well.So far no accidents inside and she’s great with kids and our resident lab. She’s pulling some on the leash, but that is too be expected.
We are already smitten by this girl and look forward to some long walks to help her shed a few pounds.
