Meet Josie! She is a three-year-old female yellow Labrador. Josie is smart and has already perfected commands such as sit, down, shake, and stay in the short time she has been with her foster family. Also, her beautiful yellow coat, golden ears, and adorable doggy smile make her even more charming.
Josie is unique in that she loves to play fetch and display her puppy energy at times but usually has a very calm and cuddly disposition. She loves her belly rubs and playing with squeaky toys or bones. While toys might be fun for her for a little while, Josie is a people pup at heart and would alternatively be getting love from her family. This loyal companion loves to roll over at your feet and hang out with you in the most heartwarming way.
The only time that her gentle demeanor might change is when it comes to her toys. She sometimes displays some signs of possessiveness over them. For this reason, we would recommend Josie is placed in a home with children over the age of 12.
Josie appears to be indifferent on walks and does not have any strong reactions to other dogs a distance. However, when coming in close contact with dogs she has not met before, Josie can get easily scared and cowers behind her handler. We believe Josie would like to be in a home with a family that will shower her with love and attention. Also, a family who is home most of the time or works from home.
A critical note about Josie is her curiosity, which sometimes leads her to get distracted by frequently sniffing on walks. This mannerism is easily fixable with a little bit of training and is most likely due to a lack of walks in her previous life. When meeting new people, Josie is sometimes a little more shy and submissive but is an absolute sweetheart once she has had a chance to warm up to her new friends.
Josie is a pleasure to have around the house. She sleeps through the night without needing a crate, does not beg or jump on counters, is potty trained, and makes every day so much more enjoyable.
Josie has visited our veterinarian for a complete physical and exam. She is a healthy girl, spayed, microchipped, and up to date on her shots.
