Norma: F1 Black Labradoodle
Weight 95 pounds
Rehome fee: $450.00
Norma Rae is a very sweet f1 Black/ Silver Labradoodle girl looking for her FUREVER home where she can spend the rest of her life being a very loved couch potato. Being the alpha pack leader most of her life, she will do best being the only dog or with a male dog, knowing she will be the dominant girl.
She is potty (may need reminding for the first few weeks) and crate trained. She is fixed and up to date on all shots, flea treatment, worming and is microchipped.
Being an f1 Labradoodle, she is a low to medium shedding and is not recommended for most allergy sufferers, though her shedding is less than most dogs.
Please only consider her if you have the time and patience to help refresh her potty training and for her to adjust to her new home and family, some adjust quicker than others.
SIDE NOTE and something to consider:
Norma has been returned several times:
1: Tried to escape over fence (Need at least a 6 foot or a electric fence)
2: Wouldn’t eat (They had mistakenly bought the wrong food)
3: Adopted and Loved part of her new family (the two that came and took her home) and other dog but would NOT accept everyone else even after months of training.
Due to the above I believe Norma Rae needs a single person or couple with a pet, with a tall 6 foot fence (Or invisible electric)
Kennel life: We live on 16 acres and our breeders live in packs of 2 or 3 in indoor/outdoor kennels. The inside kennel space is tiled 3 foot by 5 foot with a doggy door leading to either a 50 foot by 50 foot or a 80 foot by 30 play yard.
They have full access to play yards, baby pools/ containers, toys and other dogs 24 hours a day, they are NEVER locked in any cages or containers. They enjoy the freedom to come in or out whenever they want, though they usually prefer it outdoors and enjoy running and playing with the other packs near them.
With this being said it usually takes them time to adjust to living indoors where they are NOT able to go in and out at will, it may also take them time to learn to enjoy being a couch potato. As well as being an indoor family member or being on a leash for walks, but with patience they usually adjust fairly quickly.
I mention all of this because when a dog goes from kennel life to transitioning to indoor family life they may at first seem timid and sometimes even scared, it is NOT because they have ever been abused in any way, it is simply because absolutely everything in their world just changed. So it is important to allow them the time to adjust to all the newness, most adjust quickly but some faster than others.
