Becky - in Maine
Newest update: March 2023
Becky is 8-9 yrs old but don’t tell her she’s looking for a retirement home because then she will tire you out playing ball ! We don’t think she has slowed down much at all, she is no couch potato but she is happy with a couple regular walks per day and some time to play ball! She is a beautiful 61-lb lab mix with a shiny coat and a desire for routine (and a ball!)
Becky doesn’t love being crated but once she settles in we think she wouldn’t need one if she can be in a doggy proof area when you are not home. Becky is not kitty-friendly and she would prefer to live without other dogs because she likes her possessions and people to be just hers. If she’s out on a walk, she tolerates dogs just fine but doesn’t want to play with them or share. She loves to go on new adventures, whether in the woods, or walking on the rail trail nearby.
This girl can’t catch a break. She has been in and out of the rescue for far too long because of her dislike of chaos and kitties. Small children would not be a good match for Becky and frequent visitors or busy schedules are hard for her to adjust to. We think her ideal home has a fenced yard with one or two humans that don’t mind indulging her love for balls. Becky is staying with our friends at Kompletely K9 Dog Training and Rehabilitation and a new family would need to continue the training that has been set up for her so that she can be the fun and awesome girl that we know she is!
Did we mention you'll need a supply of balls to make Becky happy? ; 0 )
