Rita is a 15 month old Labrador described by her foster mum as a people lover both in and outside of the home. She loves to be petted, stroked and cuddled by humans and bonds quickly with people she meets.
She can be quite boisterous and excitable so would highly recommend training classes.
Rita is adorable, loving and cuddly. She loves to play with her toys, gnaw on an antler and fetch the tennis ball in the garden. She is very sensitive to unfamiliar sounds and sights such as a hoover, mop, lawn mower etc but as foster mum is a domestic goddess she is improving daily.
She is not cat or small furry tested.
We would recommend children of teenage years and above as Rita is still learning boundaries and has the tendency to bounce and be mouthy when excited or wanting human interaction.
She loves to play with her toys alone and tries to encourage the resident dog to interact in play. Sadly he finds her a bit OTT !!. She can get over excited when interacting with her humans and can become possessive of her human affection and push the resident dog out of the way. This is being worked on and she is slowly learning to share. She just needs firm boundaries, time and training.
For a youngster she walks really well on a harness and lead but again sensitive to unfamiliar sights. She will sit and wait at the kerb when encouraged and interacts favourably with other dogs when out and about.
Rita currently sleeps in a crate downstairs and sleeps soundly through the night without a sound.
Rita is house trained but hasn’t found her voice yet and you have to anticipate the signs of needing to go out.
Rita is not food orientated but also doesn’t like sharing her food so will need to be fed separate from any other dogs. She is learning to take treats nicely and be patient.
Rita would love an active household who would give her lots of exciting walks. She travels well harnessed in the back of the car.
Rita would benefit from training classes – she is quick to learn.
