Meet Nora! She is an adorable 13-week old Labrador Retriever puppy. Her previous family reached out to WCLRR and asked us to help her find a new home. Nora is what we expect in a puppy. She chews on just about anything she can get into her mouth, including furniture, shoes, and plants. She will dig in the yard, nips at hands, arms and feet. In other words, Nora is a typical Labrador Retriever puppy.
Nora is learning to walk on a leash; walking with another dog is helping her. Nora is almost housebroken and will continue to get better. She is not fond of the crate, but her new family needs to continue working with her on getting comfortable in a crate. This training has many benefits for raising a puppy.
Nora needs a puppy-proofed home, meaning the owner must pick up all items off the floor, all items from tables. Electrical cords should be secured so she can not chew them. Shoes, socks, laundry, anything that she can get into her mouth needs to be securely put away. Her family needs plenty of appropriate chew toys for her. Nylabones and Kong’s are safe toys for her.
Nora’s new family needs to commit to puppy training. Nora is working on her basic commands, such as sit and down. She is an intelligent puppy who is eager to learn. Continued training will help her to become a good dog.
Because she nips, we will not adopt Nora into a home with small children.
She has not to be tested with cats. Nora gets along with other dogs, and another dog in her new home would be great for her to learn from.
Puppies are a huge commitment requiring patience and understanding things may get damaged by chewing or potty accidents. These issues should pass as Nora matures and completes her training.
Nora will be adopted on a spay deposit which her fosters representative will discuss with the new family.
Nora is currently on her shots and a healthy, beautiful puppy.
