Dove is just loving her new life.She really prefers her people. She gets along just fine with the other dogs but would prefer not to play. She did tug a frisbee for a short while with Bella but that may have been because she really wanted it. Dove would love to have fur siblings but it’s not a requirement as she would be happy just loving on her people.  However, if she will have a fur sibling, she’d prefer the calm, confident type that doesn’t need her to entertain them.Chocolate Labrador RetrieverDove loves, absolutely loves, playing fetch. We have to keep everything picked up. Otherwise, if she sees a ball or frisbee she goes and gets it and brings it to you to throw. And she doesn’t want to give up until you do it. She even caught the frisbee in the air once. Unfortunately, foster mom doesn’t throw the best so that doesn’t happen often. Chocolate Labrador RetrieverTo her chagrin, Dove has to wait a couple more weeks before she will be looking for the perfect forever home. After her dental appointment, she’ll be all fixed up with a beautiful smile to match her beautiful soul. She will be looking for a family that is willing to give her all the love and the patience that she’ll need to settle into a new place. She will need time to find her new ‘person’, and once that happens that person will feel like they’ve won the lottery.Chocolate Labrador Retriever

It’s hard to believe Dove has only been here for two weeks. She has slipped seamlessly into the routine of her foster home. It also became evident that Dove does not know or act her age. She’s sweet, happy, active, and very nimble for her age. She loves to go on walks and is an angel on a leash. Dove also loves to play fetch with her tennis ball, and she’s quite good at it. She will chase it as long as you’ll keep throwing it and will dutifully drop it at your feet each time.chocolate labrador retrieverchocolate labrador retrieverDove is house trained, crate trained, and has no trouble with steps. She has also shown that she can be trusted on free roam while her people are away. Dove knows the commands: sit, shake, stay, come, no, and go lay down. And she listens, WAY better than the resident dogs! Dove gets along with both resident dogs, though she hasn’t expressed an interest in playing with the dogs as of yet.chocolate labrador retrieverShe’s had some distance interactions with the two cats. While she’s interested, we have been able to get her attention, and she will ignore them and walk on by. Dove was a sweetheart when our grandbaby came to visit and posed for a couple pics.chocolate labrador retriever chocolate labrador retrieverDove loves all people and is not shy. She has been to a local business where she greeted everyone happily and promptly demanded belly rubs. Dove is just a doll and is so easy. Sweet and easy, that’s her motto.chocolate labrador retriever

chocolate labrador retrieverDove was sprung from the farm yesterday and hasn’t missed a beat settling into the foster dog life. Dove is not shy nor skittish, as farm dogs can sometimes be. Her introduction to the two resident dogs went smoothly and they’re all getting along well. She quickly showed us that she can bound up and down a full flight of stairs without a blink. She walks dreamily along on a leash w/ only a martingale collar. First order of business was a bath.chocolate labrador retrieverDove earned five stars, as she was the model dog during her bath. She has already made herself at home on the couch and knows how to relax wherever her people are. She really likes pets and will give you a paw if she feels you’re not paying her enough attention.chocolate labrador retrieverDove’s first night was quiet. She slept in her crate in the living room all night without a sound. Day one had foster mom working from home; where Dove is content to just lay on the floor nearby. She’s careful to not let her foster mom out of her sight and follows her around all day. chocolate labrador retrieverDove has not had a single accident in the house, and it seems she is likely fully house-trained, though it’s only been one day. Check back for updates on Dove as her foster family gets to know her better.
