Meet Chloe! She is a 10-year-old beautiful sugar-faced female Labrador Retriever. Chloe was an owner surrender due to health issues within the family, and they were unable to care for her.
Chole was taken to our veterinarian, and it was determined she has a thyroid deficiency, which caused her to gain some weight, feel somewhat sluggish and lose the fur on her tail and a bit on her belly. Chloe feels excellent with the proper medication, losing weight, and has started to regrow the fur in the missing areas. She also takes a supplement, which the new family should continue to improve her overall health and maintain.
Chloe loves to stay close to her people. She plays with toys, chase balls, and enjoys her chew toys. Chloe’s new home should have plenty of chew toys (such as Nylabones) to prevent her from chewing on anything inappropriate. We recommend no soft or plush toys as she will try to pull them apart and eat them. Her new family must be mindful of not leaving laundry on the floor as she may try to steal/eat it. She may also be a counter surfer, so keeping items away from the edges or out of her reach is essential.
Chloe likes to follow her people, so her new family must monitor her not to follow you out the front door! We recommend she not be in a home with small children.
Chloe has perfect manners on a leash and walks 2 to 2.5 miles every day. She is fine with other dogs, small dogs included. Chloe will, however, bark and chase the cat in the foster’s home. She never tries to hurt the feline but instead tries to play with him.
Chloe is completely housebroken and is learning to use the doggie door. She can also sit on command and gives you her paw for a shake. Chloe enjoys sleeping on a dog bed, the floor, or the couch. She sleeps all night long without interruption.
As with any Labrador her age, Chloe has some lumps, but they add to her charm. The family adopting Chloe needs to ensure they continue her exercise program and get her to her optimal weight and maintain it. She will also need her thyroid medication for the rest of her life.
Chloe is spayed and up to date on her shots; our veterinarian did a complete senior blood panel, and she is microchipped.
