Luna # 9 Yellow Labrador Retriever Mix Female 1 Year Old ID #3229
Luna is , 60ish pound, yellow lab mix, and is an absolute sweetheart. She seems content as along as she is getting exercise and attention.
Luna came in with Buddy #35 and they really enjoy each other.

As you may know, Buddy and Luna came into Foster care together at the end of October. They are both wonderful, loving, sweet dogs and had been together since Luna came into the family. Buddy was adopted recently, and while we were optimistic that they would both be ok to go to different homes, last weekend was the test. It was the first time that Luna was without Buddy. She did well. She went along Christmas tree shopping and had the opportunity to be around people and dogs. Luna was on a short lead, and there were a few times when she pulled, but listened to corrections and sat when told.
Luna gets a little skittish around people and other dogs and her defense is to bark. Once she is comfortable with her situation, she will relax and allow pets and scratches.
Luna was also to the vet, so she was around people and dogs there as well. She was very well behaved at the vet. She got treats and love and a clean bill of health.
Here is her most recent picture. Luna’s personality is really start to come through. She is a sweet, lovable, loving dog that likes praise and pets and scratches. She seems to enjoy showing off how much she knows when it comes to sit, stay, paw, hugs, and some new tricks she is learning along the way.

Luna continues to be a very sweet, loving, and lovable dog. She loves to go on long walks and is interested in sniffing everything. You can tell she is smart and very in touch with her surroundings. She turned one in June, and you still see her puppy traits, however, she seems quite mature for her age. In the house, she listens very well, and she’s great with Sit, stay, paw, hugs, and other commands. We do have to make sure she is secured on her lead before we open the door, because she wants to “take off” if not. As long as she knows she is on a lead, she doesn’t bolt, but if she thinks she is not secured, you can tell she wants to run.
We continue to work with her on walks when people and dogs approach. I will stop on the trail, hold her collar, make her sit, and talk to her as people and dogs’ approach and pass. Sometimes she will sit calmly, and sometimes she will bark, and sometimes the hair on her back will go up, so we are working on this.
Overall, she’s an amazing dog, with lots of energy and love to give.

Luna continues to be a sweet, loving, energetic “young adult”. We are impressed with how well she behaves, being just over one year of age. She loves to run, jump, and play. Outside, Luna is very good on her lead in our yard, when she is the only dog. She gets rambunctious when she is with other dogs outside with dogs she knows. With dogs she does not know, she will bark.
We are working on her outside commands, like stay, and come. She is very smart and listens well. I would say that her lab/ puppy instincts will kick in though, so we have to be very diligent that we have her attention, because if she is distracted, she will run, and pull on her lead.
She continues to just be a sweetheart. She needs love, attention, exercise and to be occupied. She is the typical one year old lab. We think the world of this dog. I just can’t say how sweet this dog is, and how much potential she has to grow into an amazing adult dog. For someone looking for a young dog, who has an excellent base foundation of training, but who wants a dog to continue training, she would be an excellent fit.

Luna has been with us for a week now, and she continues to show us how smart and sweet she is. She listens well for her age. She is just over a year and still is a puppy when it comes to energy, playfulness, and curiosity. She walks well on a long lead. We are working with her on not pulling on a short lead. Luna went for a long trail walk this weekend and did very well. Luna does need to be kept on a very short lead when a dog walks by. She is quick to bark and pull, when other dogs get close to her. She also went to a baseball game where she was around people. She barks when others get close. We will continue to work with her on this. I think her reaction is because she is young and is very high energy. Luna is very sweet and spends most of her time wanting to be close to her humans. She will snuggle in quickly. She is excellent at going out to go to the bathroom. She is in a very good routine with that.
We did have an incident with her, where she nudged our garage door open, and ran (very fast) to our neighbor’s yard, where she hopped a fence. Once she realized she was fenced in, she cleared the fence and jumped back over. We don’t believe she picked up a scent, as much as saw a chance to escape. This is something that will need to be taken into consideration for her forever home.

Both dogs are beautiful and absolute loves! Their coats are soft, their eyes are bright, their teeth are in great condition. They are healthy and athletic. These two have been so loved and well cared for by their owner.
They get along very well together. We introduced Buddy and Luna to our son’s 1-year-old female chocolate lab and the three of them played very well together. We also introduced Buddy and Luna to some family members. Both dogs were quick to engage, friendly, wanted pets and scratches, and to play.
We think that the key for Buddy and Luna will be to have lots of play time, interaction, and exercise. Here is a picture of Buddy and Luna sleeping through the Phillies game.
