CLARA: 1 year female yellow purebred Lab not spayed 70 lbs

Background: Clara was living with a breeder on the East Coast when the breeder needed to move quickly and place her dogs. Clara has never had puppies. She has lived with her current owner for 9 months.

From Clara’s Foster: Clara is a typical happy-go-lucky young lab. She is full of life and zest. She has never met a person or a dog she doesn’t like. She loves her toys, to play, run, fetch, and to be with her person. She is excitable in the house and like any other young Lab, she can be a bit of a bull in a China shop at times. After good exercise she is ready to settle down, at least for awhile. She has spent time decompressing from being raised in a kennel and has been given a lot of freedom so Clara would benefit from working with a trainer. Other than the command “crate”, she does not know any others. However, she is treat motivated which is helpful with training.

From Clara’s Rescue Rep: Clara is just a year old so still a big puppy and wants to keep moving all the time. Like most young Labs, she requires a lot of exercise. Clara has not lived with kids and when she gets excited she jumps up around people so any kids in the house should be at least 8 and older and somewhat dog savvy. Clara is housebroken and crate trained. She has only been left alone in the home crated so we do not know how she would do if she were alone and not crated. She is good riding in her crate in the car. She does not dig in the yard. Clara likes to swim. She has some prey drive so no cats please.

Lab Rescue wants an adopter who has raised a large Lab puppy before and is around to continue with her training and exercise, all the while providing the guidance that she needs.

Medical: Clara is healthy, current on vaccinations, Heartworm negative and microchipped. She is not spayed at this time but Lab Rescue will arrange to have that done. Per her breeder, her tail was caught in a door by accident when she was younger and it needed to be docked. It doesn’t impact her in any way. We were informed by her previous owner that she had genetic testing done.

Clara is located in: Vallejo.

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
