Meet Holly! She is a sweet and submissive chocolate female Labrador Retriever, approximately seven years old, with a beautiful shiny coat. Holly came to WCLRR through a high desert shelter where she was listed as a stray. Holly was in poor shape, with a significant laceration/injury to her front leg and a substantial skin tag hanging from her abdomen. Holly is healed now, thanks to the care she received from our veterinarians and foster family.
Holly is crate trained and can be trusted around the house. However, she prefers to sleep on her bed and has a very sweet snore when she relaxes. She loves company and enjoys being next to her foster family. Holly loves to say good morning by wagging her tail. She loves to be petted, hugged, and kissed.
Holly knows how to sit and wait for her treats. Her favorite activities are going on walks, going on car rides, and playing fetch with her tennis ball. If she wants to play, she will let you know by bringing her ball to you. Holly has many toys, but she is only interested in her yellow tennis ball.
Holly still pulls when going in walks, so that she will need some training. We believe Holly suffered some form of abuse by her previous owners, so she needs a lot of gentle reassurance and love. Holly trusts females right away, but she’s had a hard time warming up to men. She does well with other dogs and kids.
Holly is housebroken; however, any dog could have accidents in their new home until a routine is established. Frequent trips outside and even a doggy door are recommended.
Holly might beg, but she will never steal anything from the counter or table. Holly will do well with an active person or a person who can only walk her once a day. Whenever she sees her leash, she gets very excited about going out! Holly can get anxious at times and could lick her leg, causing a lick granuloma, which her owner needs to keep an eye on and stop her from continually licking her paws or legs.
Holly is a fantastic, loving, and friendly dog that needs a loving home that can reassure her she is safe and loved.
Holly is spayed. Currently, on her shots, Holly had a senior blood panel, urine analysis, fecal and microchipped.
