RE: my girl

She's beautiful and looks perfectly at home!

Is she full lab? ANy idea how old she might be?

RE: my girl

Thanks : )

She is a full lab, surrendered by a "breeder" who surrendered 15 other dogs. She is 5 1/2 and was used as a breeder for the first 5 years of her life.

She was a bit shut down when I got her. I think she had few experiences in those years outside of the whelping pen. Playing was new to her; she was tentative of strangers; never had been in water.

She was not ruined, luckily. She is a "real" lab, so all that lab potential is now coming forward.

She learns easily and fast. She is a sweet, gentle soul. I am very lucky I found her at the shelter. Lucky her early life didn't ruin her.

She looks like a real sweetie! Very cute cuddling in the blankets, too.
One of our rescues we have reason to believe was from a puppy mill situation, and he still doesn't really get how to play with toys, sometimes he's scared of them. But he loves to run and chase a ball, and will occasionally play tug w/a stuffie.

Isn't it great when you get to see them go from timid to relaxed and happy?
