Kess was save from a high kill shelter and her time was up the day she was pulled from one of our foster's. A very nice man working at the shelter worked with Kess and was not going to let her life end. He worked with Kess and informed us that Kess likes other dogs alot. She ok with cats, but of course, we will also cat test her. She is at first shy and scared. She does know "SIT", and will do a happy jump when she see's you. She is very playful and she was learning to cuddle. In time she will have that mastered. She does not care for baths much.. She walks very well on a leash and when she she gets excited she will play nip. She is fearful, and we do understand that. He feels she would do best with some training to learn some boundries. She is all up to date and spayed and would love to show you how great a dog she really is if you would give her the chance...
We are not sure as yet to say if she is housetrained we will observe.
*** According to www.dogbreedinfo.com, the Labrador Retriever is a loving, affectionate, lovable, patient dog. Once known as the "St John's Dogs," the Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular breeds in the United States. Originally from Newfoundland, Canada the Labrador was trained to jump overboard into the icy waters to haul fisherman's nets to shore. Specimens were brought to England in the 1800's by English ships coming from Labrador, where the dog's fine retrieving instincts were honed and developed. One of the best family dogs and canine companions because of their gentle, loving disposition, the highly trainable Labrador also excels in drug detection, as a guide for the blind, and service dog for the disabled. The breed is also an outstanding obedience and field trial competitor. Highly intelligent, loyal, willing, and high-spirited. Lively and good-natured, they love to play, especially in water - for they love to swim. They have an excellent, reliable, temperament and are friendly, superb with children and equable with other dogs. They crave human attention and need to feel as though they are part of the family. Labs are easily trained. These dogs are watchdogs, not guard dogs, although some have been known to guard. They have a life expectancy of 10-12 years.
