General Notes | Sandy is a happy and sweet 18 m/o pup. She was a young momma who is ready to enjoy the carefree life of a loved pet! She was pretty shy when we first picked her up, but despite the initial nervousness she quickly befriended the resident rambunctious lab and is becoming more confident and comfortable every day. She is pretty petite, so if youre looking for a pocket-sized dog with all the best qualities of a lab (sweet, well behaved, food motivated, happy-go-lucky), this is your girl! Want to adopt this dog? Please do not email us. Please fill out the Adoption Application ASAP. Health Notes | Other Dogs | She loves her foster lab brother and likes trying to incite play with him, she has also gained confidence by following his cues around the house. She is definitely curious about meeting other dogs and may be a little nervous at first, but her default is to be gentle and submissive rather than growl or be defensive. Cats | Dont know Children | Dont know, but she is playful and has a soft mouth so shed probably enjoy playing with kiddos. Training | Fully potty trained and sleeps in her crate through the night. She is food motivated and we are working on basic commands. Leash | Doesnt have much experience but were working on it. Weve been walking her together with our other lab and shes made huge improvements over past few days. She doesnt pull, walks slow and stays close to you, but she does get a little nervous when she sees other dogs or hears loud noises. Activity Level | Medium. She can be very chill and enjoys napping on the bed while her foster parents work, but is also a playful dog and will respond to play cues from people and dogs. She will also excitedly meet you with a wagging tail as soon as you walk through the door :) Personality | Very sweet!
