Meet Sandy! She is a sweet 18-month-old female yellow Labrador Retriever. Sandy was surrendered to WCLRR when her family realized that she needed more attention and playtime than they could give her.
Sandy is a lovable girl who is happy to snuggle at home with her people or share adventures with them on walks and hikes. She is good on the leash but is quite a curious girl and likes to take time to smell anything along the way that seems interesting! She does have a lot of energy and would be a great hiking or running partner.
Sandy can get excited when she hears other dogs barking. However, her new family needs to work with her to learn that it’s ok not to bark back! She will try to jump fences to do her best in a home with a secure yard, and her family should not leave her in the yard by herself.
Sandy is very comfortable hanging out in her crate and enjoys chewing on her toys and Nylabone’s. She enjoys playing with the two labs in her foster home, but she would also be content as an only dog as long as her family provides lots of walks and playtime.
Sandy knows “sit” and comes when she is called. She is housebroken, but it will take time for her to settle into a new home, and her family needs to take her outside frequently when she first moves in. Sandy behaves well in the house, and she doesn’t counter surf or get into trash or other household items.
In her previous home, Sandy spent a lot of time in her kennel. When she is outside of the kennel, she can be a bit restless unless she can cuddle with someone from her family. She would benefit from a home that can provide an environment with consistently applied rules and boundaries.
Sandy is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.
