Meet Delilah! She is an adorable senior black female Labrador Retriever, approximately eleven-years-old. Delilah came to WCLRR when her family asked for help her finding her a new family. They wish they could have done more for her, but their living circumstances drastically changed.
Delilah visited our veterinarian for a complete senior panel workup. We are happy to report that Delilah’s bloodwork came back with no concerns. While Delilah is a little overweight and has some allergies, she is in good health and condition.
Delilah is current on an allergy medication to help with her paw licking and help get her coat and skin looking better. Delilah may benefit from being on an NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug) to help with her joints and arthritis, as expected with senior Labradors.
Delilah is a playful girl who likes to wrestle and play tug of war with the other senior lab in her foster home. She also likes to play ball and chase. Considering her age, Delilah gets around very well. We believe Delilah would like the company of a playful dog friend. She is a velcro-dog and loves nothing more than to follow her foster mom around the house or lay at her feet while relaxing in the home or the garden.
Delilah is housebroken and sleeps through the night on a dog bed in her foster mom’s room. Delilah knows basic commands like, sit, down, stay, shake and come. She gets very excited when she sees the leash and knows it’s time for a walk. Delilah loves carrying her leash as they walk the neighborhood. She is not interested in other dogs while on a walk and will go on her way when she spots them. Delilah will always stop to get a friendly pat on her head and loves people’s attention. Delilah is non-reactive to noises and does not alert bark. She likes looking out the front window of her foster home but does not bark at passersby.
Delilah has a bad habit of picking up items left on the ground, socks in particular. Her new family must make sure things are not left out for her to get them. Something like a sock could be ingested and cause a blockage requiring immediate care.
Delilah wants to be part of a loving home, and in return, she will provide endless amounts of love and affection.
Delilah is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.
