Dolce: 5-year-old female [dark] chocolate Lab mix 70 pounds spayed

Background: This friendly, happy girl came to Lab Rescue from the central valley where she’d been picked up as a stray.

What Dolce’s Foster says: Dolce is very affectionate and loves to spend time with me in the house. It took her a while for her to get adjusted to being left alone in the house when I went out for errands, but now she does quite well when left alone. I will admit that she does like to occupy the couch in my living room. Dolce loves to go for walks but she is quite a strong dog and will pull on leash. If she sees a cat or a squirrel, she will try to bolt after the critter. Dolce’s biggest issue is her snarkiness towards other dogs. She is familiar with the crate but would rather sleep on a dog bed near me. Dolce is house-broken.

What Dolce’s Rescue Rep says: Dolce is a people-dog… as opposed to a dog’s dog. Dolce is not a dog-park dog. Very friendly and affectionate with people, not so much with other dogs. Dolce’s adopter will need to work with her on her poor dog socialization skills. Dolce would do best in a home where people are around for much of the day; she should not be left at home along for extended hours. And energetic/active Dolce sure likes her exercise so be prepared for many long dog walks.

Medical Information: Dolce is current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped, and spayed. She has been getting oatmeal shampoo baths to reduce her itching.

Dolce is located in: Alameda.

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.
