Meet Faith! She is a petite black female Labrador approximately 5-6 years old. Faith was found wandering in the hills by a good samaritan. Faith spent several days in a local shelter waiting for her owner to come to get her, which they never did. Finally, WCLRR took her in and brought her to our veterinarian for an exam and spay. Faith was covered head to tail in ticks. After a few medicated baths and some meds, she is as good as new.
Faith will need some training on a leash, but her foster believes she will get better and be a pro with practice. Faith currently sleeps in a crate, but with time she will probably sleep on a bed beside yours or even on the bed with you!
Faith has some anxiety, but that is expected. She does well knowing that the foster is the pack leader, and she takes direction well. Faith loves her food and loves water even more; she loves to play in her water bowl and would probably enjoy a pool or trips to the beach with her new family.
Faith has a little separation anxiety, so she needs some time to adjust. Faith is a Velcro dog with her foster mom and enjoys playing with the other dogs in her foster home. Faith needed a few days to learn how to play and be accepted into the pack. She loves her foster sister and brother but had to get used to them at first. After a few “pack” walks, she was very comfortable with them.
Faith may need to work on food reaction, and she does get excited when she sees another dog on a walk so, she needs to be corrected and eased into meeting random dogs. Her new owner will need to make introductions slowly and allow the necessary time to adjust.
Faith needs an experienced owner who doesn’t allow Faith to get away with things; she needs proper direction and corrections. She has adjusted very well in the time she has been in her foster home. Faith is a great girl that unfortunately, was not provided structure and lacked any training in her previous home. She knows how to sit and will give you her paw immediately for some love. Faith is housebroken, but with any dog will need to have a routine established with her new family.
Faith has not been caught doing any counter surfing. However, all homes should be cautious of keeping counters and tables cleared of any items that could cause injury or harm to a dog; this includes medicine, candy, remotes, and eyeglasses, to name a few.
Faith has been spayed. She is up to date on her shots, microchipped, and now ready to find her family.
