Lucy - Brisbane, QLD
Hello! I'm Lucy and I am 18 months old (a puppy really). I am a Labrador cross German Shorthaired Pointer (I have the genetic test to prove it).
I was surrendered into Lab Rescue's care due to being a bit too boisterous and here I am today happily living with my foster-parents and foster fur siblings (2x Labradors).
Since being with Lab Rescue, I am living life to the max! I get nicknamed Lucy-Goosey. I am definitely energetic and full of beans! Since I am still young, I like to chase my foster siblings all around the house. Here is some more information about me:
Behaviour: As I said before I am full of beans! I am energetic, but I love to please. I love dog toys, particularly ropes and I love playing with them. I am active and boisterous and as I said before I still act like a puppy.
Overall, I have a wonderful temperament - I am playful and just love human contact.
Feeding: Like all Labradors, I love food!! Currently I am on dry food (Bonnie Purina - Lite) and do have the occasional wet food from my foster mum. Since I like to "inhale" my food without chewing, my foster mum had to use a slow feeder which works well for me. In the mornings I also have some mini carrots to act as dental chews.
Toilet Training: I am toilet trained and would usually go do my "business" twice a day.
Other Training: Foster mum says that I am a clever girl! I learn very quickly and the best way to train me is by using food. It would not hurt if I get some puppy training with my new mummy and/or daddy so we can know each other better. So far I can sit, stay and go outside (command = "out out") when told to do so. I can be a bit stubborn particularly when it comes to doing things I don't like (e.g. going outside when my foster parents go to work), but with encouragement (a.k.a. Food!) I will do as told.
Interactions with other dogs: I like having company with other dogs mainly because I love attention and want to play all the time! Sometimes I may need some correction if I get a bit too boisterous as I like to do some power-play which can look as if I am being aggressive. I tend to climb and jump over my older adult foster siblings (8yo and 4yo) and I enjoy having a run or playing tug with them.
Interactions with other animals: This includes cats, kittens and chooks. This is a big question mark as this has yet to be tested.
Interactions with children: I love kids and of course they love me too! My previous owner has kids and I interact well with them.
Lucy is located in Brisbane and is available for adoption. She's been desexed, vaccinated and microchipped and is up to date with all worming, flea and tick treatments. This gorgeous girl is available to the right family for a rehoming fee of $550.
