Meet Cami! She is a gorgeous three-year-old chocolate Labrador Retriever. Cami was surrendered to WCLRR from a breeder after giving birth to a litter of puppies (we were not involved with her puppies, so please don’t ask us about them.) Now it’s time for Cami to find a family who will make her a priority and give her all the love she deserves.
Cami may not have been exposed to many things in her previous life and can be nervous at times, especially unfamiliar noises. While in her foster home, she has overcome a lot of her insecurities. Her new family needs to be patient and allow Cami to come out of her shell in her own time.
Cami knows the basic commands of sit, down and come, but can be uncertain and slow to respond to them. Cami is housebroken and sleeps all night without having an accident. She is crate trained, although her preference is to sleep on a dog-bed near her person. She’s also mastered a doggie door while with her foster.
Cami is not a high-energy dog but loves going on walks. Her tail wags when she sees the leash, and she heads to the front door. She’s good on a leash and doesn’t pull or wander. She’s happy to meet new people and other dogs on walks and greets them nicely.
She is beginning to show some interest in balls and toys, but for the moment, she is happy sitting on a dog bed beside family or sunning on the patio.
Cami gets very attached and has some separation anxiety. She will try to escape to get to her person if left alone. For this reason, we will not recommend a family with young children where a door or gate could accidentally be left open. A family where someone is home most of the time would be perfect.
Since Cami was previously raised with other dogs, she may do well with a family who has a dog. A dog that is not dominant but can be her companion and mentor and can help her learn to be a well-balanced pup would be ideal. Regardless, she will need a family who will walk her, teach her to play, and give her lots of love.
Cami is spayed, up to date on her shots, and microchipped.
