Mary - Canberra, ACT
Mary first came to Lab rescue as an abandoned, pregnant girl found roaming the streets. Identified as a "bitser" , she started her Lab rescue life the hard way - with a C-Section and Gangrenous Mastitis. Mary is now fully recovered and all of her puppies have gone on to find wonderful homes - so it's her turn now!
Despite her adversities, Mary is an extremely loving and affectionate dog. She likes nothing better than sitting at your feet or on the couch next to you for a good snuggle.
She is completely housetrained and can be left overnight with no accidents. Another new experience for Mary has been walking on a lead. Mary has never been walked on a lead before and she is starting to settle now but has a way to go before she fully understands commands or road safety.
Mary is starting to learn her commands and is a quick learner but bear in mind we are starting from ground zero. We are having some success with sit (especially when there is food around - just like a lab!) but she has only recently been exposed to stay, wait, drop etc and these are definitely a work in progress. Mary is extremely quick to learn though and loves food so she will pick these up.
Mary needs a patient family who is committed to continuing her training and settling her into a normal doggy life, especially socialising with other dogs.
A family who is home for large parts of the day or with another dog to keep her company would be ideal. While Mary will be great with another dog, the introduction to the other dog is likely to take a few days with new owners. However after a patient introduction she ADORES her current companion. She needs some time to warm up to other dogs but once settled in it's like they have never been apart. Mary has not been cat/small dog tested.
Mary is great with kids and is extremely passive, letting them pet her to their hearts content.
Mary is located in Canberra ACT and is available for local adoption in ACT or nearby NSW. Mary comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm and intestinal worm treated with a ton of love and a gorgeous smile for the right family for a re-homing fee of $200.
