Brownie #2 Chocolate Labrador Retriever Mix Female 6 Months Old ID#2839
January 1, 2021
It’s been almost a month and Brownie is enjoying learning all sorts of things from her foster sisters. Brownie and Bella are BFF’s and enjoy sharing foster dad’s lap.
Bella showed Brownie how to take a selfie too.
We’ve gone on a few walks and Brownie does very well on leash with a harness or a regular collar.
Brownie had an adorable little visitor and did wonderful with him, showing him appropriate play and tiring him out.
Brownie has mastered her crate training She will go in on her own when told or if you mention bedtime. She is content to sit or lay in the crate during the day for a few hours at a time as well. Housetraining is coming along nicely with very few random accidents over the last week or so. She knows sit, no, come and listens quite well. She rarely bothers anything that is not a toy. She enjoys basking in the sun while relaxing throughout the day.
This little love bug is looking forward to finding her forever home. She is hoping to have fur siblings too as she really enjoys playing and snuggling with fur friends.
Enjoy a short video of our walk. Btw, dogs in motion must stay in motion. If you stop, it becomes an instant tangled disaster.

Brownie has been with us for almost two weeks. While she likes to play with our 2 yr. old resident dog, Bella, and likes her toys, she’s very calm for a 4 month old puppy. She’s content to just lay around and even happier if she can lay on a hooman while she’s sleeping. She is quite the little snuggle bug.Brownie is trying very hard to get the 6 yr. old resident lab to warm up to her. She’s making some headway and thinks Sadie makes a good pillow. Lately when it’s bedtime and we all head to the bedroom, she tries to get away with sleeping with Sadie. While Sadie tolerates this for a minute, Brownie gets ushered into her crate next to our bed where she will sleep 8 hours with no issues or accidents.Potty training is going well. We aren’t sure who is more trained us or Brownie. But we’ve gone a few days with no accidents in the house. We take her out on a regular schedule and she goes potty outside nearly each time. She tends to not always want to go out but takes her lead from the residents dogs and will follow them outside. She hasn’t quite progressed to telling us when she needs to go out but she tends to be predictable.When we have to leave the house Brownie has a second crate in the living room where she can see and be near the resident dogs. After only a few short practice runs, she does well and will lay down and nap. She’s probably spent up to 3-4 hours in the crate during the day and when we return she’s happy to see us and is calmly waiting for someone to let her out. Brownie loves her kibble just as much as any puppy. When she hears the food being poured, she will scramble to her crate and go in and sit pretty for her meal. We have allowed her to come out when done and she’s quickly learning (with a few ‘no’ corrections) to wait until the resident dogs are done. Then she will make her rounds to the empty bowls to make sure there isn’t a stray morsel.

Brownie has been with us for 3 days now. She’s a real snuggler and can easily get on all the furniture to be as close to you as possible. With a bit of a rough go the first two nights, we moved her crate into the bedroom where we sleep as well as resident dogs Sadie and Bella. That must have been the ticket because we finally got some sleep. She settled down with only a few whimpers around 9pm and didn’t wake til we all got up at 6:30am. We’re all hoping to repeat that again and again.
Brownie is figuring out our daily routine and is well behaved all day while foster mom works. She’s slowly learning to play with Bella and will chase her around the yard. She also likes to fetch but hasn’t quite figured out the bringing it back to you part yet. We’re working on other commands (come, sit, stay) but they’re a work in progress. House training is going pretty well too. She sometimes makes a slight whimper and if you’re close by to hear, yay! We go out often and she goes potty outside fairly quickly every time, which foster mom is happy about since it’s cold outside. Stay tuned for more as we all settle in and get to see this little chocolate chunk come into her own.
This is Brownie the ‘morning after no sleep’ while she was delirious watching TV next to Sadie.
