Labrador Retriever


Update February 2022

Annie is now spayed. She continues to grow and blossom and loves running around and playing with her Husky and Australian Shepherd foster sisters. After getting rid of her puppy energy she likes to snuggle with her foster mom on the couch.
Annie has shown some orthopedic medical issues. At this time she does not require any surgery. That is not to say that surgery is not in her future. That will be re-evaluated in May when she has mostly finished growing. There is a possibility that she will need to have surgery on both hips at that time, she has hip dysplasia on both sides. She also has luxating patellas in both rear legs that may pop back in once her hips are taken care of. None of her medical issues slow her down. She is able to run and play like any other 7 month old puppy. The only accommodation that she requires are steps to get onto a couch or a bed.
Annie does, however, need to be on supplements for the rest of her life. She is on  Dasuquin Advanced which needs to be purchased through a vet and Welactin 3 which is available to purchase through several retailers. She will also improve as she continues to run and play as well as getting regular exercise through walks.


Annie is a sweet girl that loves to play and cuddle. She gets along with dogs and cats once she becomes used to them. At first she is very timid but quickly learns that they won’t hurt her. She is currently residing with eight small dogs in her foster home. We are working on teaching her to be gentle with them and the first command that she learned was “leave it”. We continue to work on “sit” and she will do it for treats but if she especially loves the treat she will jump on you in excitement and you need to use the command “off” before getting her to sit.

Annie is currently four months old and is at the play hard and crash hard stage. She is easily distracted by sounds and is not able to walk on a leash on a street with any traffic. We are working on desensitization.

Annie will climb a few stairs but will not go down them yet. Because of her age and a slight “click” in her knee reported by her original vet, we are not allowing her to do stairs. Our deck has only one stair to get outside. She is lifted in and out of the car.

Annie loves to play with toys, chew bones and eat treats but her favorite is playing tug with a toy. Annie will make a wonderful family dog and should have a fenced in yard because of her fear of traffic.

Annie was adopted!
