Kyla Silver Labrador Retriever Female 3 Years Old ID #3155

January 19, 2023

Kyla has been in her foster home for almost two weeks. She is getting into the routine and starting to show her personality. She is a funny girl and makes funny noises and sleeps in what look to be uncomfortable positions.

She is slowly learning her manners. She has learned sit and is walking better on a leash but still needs practice and reinforcement. She is potty trained and will let foster mom know when she needs to go out. She is very curious and loves checking things out.  She finally explored the whole back yard this week. She is a little nervous when meeting new people but warms up quickly as she loves getting scratches. She is starting to show interest in toys and likes chewing on a benebone.

She was scheduled for her spay and eye lid surgery on February 14th but she went into heat this week so she will just have her eye lid surgery. Her skin is looking much better and her fur is starting to come in thicker. Foster mom can’t wait to see how she looks in another couple of weeks.

Welcome to Brookline Kyla! Chocolate Labrador She had her rescue ride from farm life on Friday and her breeding days are behind her. She is very nervous with all the new things she is experiencing but is quickly learning what it is like to live in a home. She has had no accidents in the house and loves the couch and her dog bed!Chocolate Labrador

She especially loved sleeping on my clean towels.Chocolate Labrador On her first night she didn’t like sleeping in her crate in the den but once a second crate was set up in foster moms’ bedroom she is now sleeping through the night.

On Saturday she went to the vet. Kyla is 70lbs. Foster mom was very proud of how she handled herself.  She has a double ear infection and, as is typical with silver labs, she is being treated for some itchy skin. She also has an old eye lid injury that we were told she obtained as a puppy. The vet recommended surgery so she can fully close her eye and should prevent issues down the road. She will have the eye lid surgery and her spay surgery very soon. She was very sweet throughout the visit! She also learned what canned cheese was and loved it!  She also met the resident dogs.  She is taking some guidance from them but is definitely more interested in people. She hasn’t shown any interest in playing with them or toys yet.

On Sunday we went for a walk around the neighborhood and she seemed to enjoy all of the sights and smells.

She was nervous of some kids on roller skates and bikes but with some reassurance she was just fine. She was then settled the rest of day.

Monday foster mom had to go into the office. She did well in her crate. Foster mom thought it was a great idea to walk Kyla and resident lab, Misty, together. Half of the walk was spent untangling from the leashes. I’m sure we gave the neighbors a laugh.  For not walking on a leash before Kyla is doing pretty well. She doesn’t pull at all but she loves to walk in circles. We will work on that as well some other basic commands in the coming days.
