Willow Approximate 10 Month-Old Chocolate Lab Mix 48 Pounds, Spayed Female

Background: Willow, short for Buttonwillow as named by her foster dad, was found as a stray in Madera County. The shelter contacted Lab Rescue to see if we could help.

What Willow's Foster Says: > Willow is such a mild mannered pup. She loves her people, loves other dogs, loves walks, and to sit outside and sunbathe. She sleeps on her own bed next to our dog- our dog asked us to move his bed next to hers so they can sleep better. They play together wildly in the mornings and evenings and wear themselves out.

> > It seems like she’s spent a lot of time outdoors and asks permission to come indoors even when the door is open. She does have some prey drive around squirrels and cats. She sleeps through the nights- although most nights she wakes up once to go out and pee or poop. She knows her name and basic commands like sit, down, and leave it. We are working on heel and “corner” and she is a quick learner.

> > She is still a puppy in the way she wants to chew on slippers and will pick up shoes but hasn't destroyed them as of yet. She has a soft mouth when taking treats and loves to play with her squeaky toy.

> > She rides beautifully in the car. You may have to lift her in at first, but once she's in, she settles and rides comfortably. > She really is a love bug- anyone would be lucky to have her.

What Willow's Rescue Rep Says: Willow appears to be pretty calm for a younger pup. We don't know what she's mixed with but her fur is a little scruffy. She will require a home where she can be a part of the family, a semi-active home where she will receive daily walks (not just backyard exercise), an enclosed backyard where she can run and play, a home where she won't be left alone for long stretches of the day and one that is committed to basic obedience training. Another friendly, compatible dog would be a bonus. No cats as she is reported to have prey drive towards them and squirrels.

Medical: Willow is up-to-date on core vaccines, heartworm tested, and microchipped.

Located In: Oakland.

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.
