Rosie is a 7 year old, spayed black Lab. She is a very friendly girl who would benefit from more attention, training and exercise. She is on the smaller side for a Lab, but don’t let the size fool you. She is all muscle. She is a strong puller and needs a Gentle Leader (it’s a head halter) when she is walked. She is very sweet and will lay on her back once you start to pet her – she LOVES belly rubs. She gets along with other dogs and cats. Rosie is a jumper and we are working hard to get her not to jump when she meets new people. She would do best in a house with older children because of her strength and tendency to jump. Rosie doesn’t know many commands, but will sit – every once in awhile. She is getting better, but she could certainly benefit from some doggy obedience training with her new family. She will need a fenced in yard, because she will try to escape if not contained. She is not a digger. Rosie is crate trained and sleeps in her crate without any issues. She is also crated during the day when her foster Dad is at work. She behaves for the dog sitter when she is let out every day around noon. Rosie does pretty good in a car, and after the initial thrill of going for a ride wears off, she settles down fairly well. Rosie is about 10 lbs over her ideal weight. She has lost a few pounds while she’s been with her foster family, and more will come off once she is settled and into a regular routine with plenty of exercise. She is currently being fostered in Fishers, IN.
