Edith Black Labrador Retriever Mix Female 7 Months Old ID#2790

black labrador retriever mixEdith came in to Brookline’s care from a shelter in Mississippi after being found as a stray. She is a petite girl weighing in at 25 pounds.  She is small but is at the appropriate weight since she is considered a pocket lab. Edith is in a foster home while she gets ready for her forever home.  Please read her blog from the bottom up.

Edith (Edie) has been here less than a week and she has already learned so much and settled in so well. She sits nicely waiting for the door to be opened. She’s doing amazingly well with her potty training. And she loves her toys! Edith has the sweetest, most sunshiny personality. She is gaining confidence and absolutely loves people and other dogs. She crates incredibly well. Edith is an exceptional family pet or a fine companion for pretty much anyone who loves a happy, playful pup. She loves to lay on soft blankets….and oddly enough, random pillows as shown in this photo. Happy go lucky is the perfect description for Edie!

black labrador retriever mixWelcome Edith (Edie!). I’ve fostered many dogs (14? I have lost count) and Edie is the happiest puppy I’ve ever had. Sweet and wiggling and playful are the best ways to describe this tiny ball of energy. Edie is dog, cat, and kid friendly (she LOVES our 13 year old son). Eager to please and quick to learn. She is already showing signs of recall to her name, is potty trained in our house (but does not yet signal the need to go out), and is working on sit and to wait at the door (seated) before being allowed to come in. Edie is easy to handle (she had her first bath yesterday and stood patiently until it was over) and is quickly learning the signs and signals of our resident dogs. She goes easily into a crate and sleeps through the night (with an age appropriate potty break since she is only 7 months). After bursts of energy and playfulness, including a good game of fetch, she settles down and naps nicely — sometimes curled up next to you and sometimes just passed out on the couch.

Edie’s forever family will be a lucky bunch. This is the dog you hope to get: friendly, funny, playful, loyal, and sweet.

Normally it takes a long time for a dog’s personality to shine after they arrive at a foster home. I think Edie has already let her guard down and is shining brightly for all to see.

We’ll continue to send updates as we learn more about this special girl.

black labrador retriever mixEdith arrived on Saturday and settled in nicely. She is such a happy puppy! Edith (we call her Edie) always has a smile on her face. She’s bouncy and playful and sweet and snuggly – everything you could want in a puppy. Edith learns quickly and is already working on sit and wait – after only 2 days!

black labrador retriever mixEdith is dog and cat friendly (she does like to play with cats so if you have cats, they should be dog savvy) and adores kids. Edith wants to be where you are but crates very well. She is working on her potty training and doing fantastic.
