Debbie

ADOPTED_!!!

About Me 5 old female Lab X. Debbie was picked up as a stray, found swimming on Hout Bay beach, unclaimed. She has been rehomed & returned and subsequently needs a loving home environment with someone experienced and patient, willing to allow her the much needed period of adjustment into a home environment. Some dogs slot right in, others- like Debbie, take time to adjust to new smells, sights & especially to new people that may come in and out the house. Debbie loves to retrieve tennis balls ( there’s the Labby in her), loves the beach & needs an active family willing to provide her with plenty of mental & physical stimulation through ball games, chew toys & daily walks. She has the tendency to resource guard her food and if feeling unsure in the presence of strangers she let’s you know. I strongly suggest she is rehomed to an environment where every experience & stranger is met with treats & positive reinforcement. Strange man entering house…hey he gives me treats…ok, he’s not so bad…..unfamiliar person cleaning the pool….oh oh… look he gives me chicken….get it? She needs someone patient & willing to work with her, to modify her behaviours through positive reinforcement. She’s a great dog, yes she has a few behavioural quirks, but no-one has yet given her a chance & worked through them to help her adjust. Debbie would thrive in a home environment with loving, understanding people. Share this:
