Meet Sadie! She is a sweet, yellow Labrador Retriever approximately ten years old with beautiful brown eyes. Sadie came to WCLRR when her family moved and couldn’t take her with them.
Sadie came to WCLRR with infections in both ears that impacted her ability to hear. Those infections have been treated, her ears are healing well, and she has regained some of her hearing. However, her family needs to maintain a regular ear cleaning regimen to ensure that the infections do not return.
Sadie is a laid-back girl with a low/medium energy level. She loves being with her people, and her favorite time of the day is when she can go on a walk. Sadie is fully housetrained, and her walks are when she prefers to do her business, although she does use the dog door at her foster home.
Sadie hasn’t shown much interest in toys, but she enjoys chewing on bones sometimes. Sadie is not a counter surfer, although she is a great cooking assistant and floor cleaner. She will monitor the floor and quickly scoop up anything that falls within her reach!
Sadie is not crate trained, but her foster has found that she is OK at home during the day, especially if there are other dogs around. Left on her own, Sadie will do best if confined to a room or area with a bed and water and where she can move around. Her foster is working with her on basic commands such as sit and down.
Sadie loves nothing more than being with her people and wants to be with them all the time. She loves to be loved and will put her paw on your leg to remind you to pet her. Her foster mom has taken Sadie into her office, and Sadie was a perfect sweetheart – everyone loved her, and she was happy to sleep while her foster mom was working.
Sadie likes to sleep in the same room with her family and rests on a rug next to the bed. She does not try to get on the bed, but she likes to snuggle on the couch in the evening and watch television. She sleeps through the night until her family gets up in the morning. Sadie loves children and is very gentle with them. Her foster mom has allowed her 10-year-old granddaughter to hold the leash on walks, and there have been no problems.
Sadie currently lives with three small dogs and a cat, as well as two other lab fosters. She is OK with the small pets and doesn’t play with the other dogs much.
Sadie rarely barks and would do best with a calm environment, perhaps with an older couple looking for a quiet companion for walks. She would also be fine for a family with kids who will love her but not expect a lot of playtime. Sadie can walk a half-hour every day with no problem, and her new family should keep up that exercise to help her remain healthy.
Sadie is Spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.
