Sunny: 6 Year-Old Female Red Lab, ~64 lbs, Lab Rescue will coordinate spay

Background: Sunny was surrendered as her family was unable to afford surgery to have two mammary masses removed. Lab Rescue just had the procedure done, and we are thrilled that both were benign.

Sunny has been an outside dog the majority of her life. The adult daughter recently took Sunny in to live with her in an apartment but they moved so Sunny is back at her parents' house where Sunny is kept as an outside dog.

What Sunny's Family Says:Sunny has been with our family since she was a puppy and has been the most loving dog we've owned. She is full of energy and always wants to play or get chased. Her favorite part of the day is going on walks and receiving attention. She tends to bark when she wants to be pet and doesn't stop until she gets the attention. Sunny knows basic commands but doesn't understand "No", she does well with the crate and sleeps in it overnight. She is potty trained to go outside. Sunny can be leash reactive when encountering a new dog. She has lived with a female dog before, but the introduction had to be slow and once they met, Sunny didn't mind having her around. Sunny needs a family that is patient with someone who can give her love, attention, and training. I think she would do best in a home with a single person or a couple with time and energy. If she were to go with a family, she'd do best with older children since she is a big energetic dog and likes to jump on people and gets the zoomies.

What Sunny's Rescue Rep Says: Sunny is a sweet dog, loves attention and is great with people. Her owner describes her as loving but anxious. Sunny is crate trained and sleeps in her crate at night. Sunny likes to be included in almost everything her family does. The daughter and her boyfriend demonstrated that when they hug, Sunny wants the attention and starts barking until they stop and pay attention to her.

Lab Rescue would like Sunny to be in a home where she won't be left alone for long stretches of the day and with a patient, attentive family who can put the time into training and exercise. She is not socialized with other dogs and can be leash reactive on walks. She has been around children over 5, will jump on them and wants to play; the owner recommends a home with older children (probably 12 and up) as Sunny is big and energetic.

Medical: Sunny is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Lab Rescue will coordinate her spay procedure.

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.
