Hannah - In New England
Posted June 2021
Sweet Hannah is a 6.5 year old lab or lab mix who was adopted last fall from us but she did not adapt well to the children in her home. She is a little lady who is set in her ways and would do best with an adult home where she can control how much space she needs.
A great trainer would be the best way to help Hannah adapt to a new home. Her foster setting has no pets and just a wonderful human who is giving Hannah a patient and loving home with space and patience. While it is really tempting to want to pet Hannah all the time because she is sweet and beautiful, she wants to initiate the interactions with humans.
Hannah thrives on routine – she goes on two walks a day which she greatly enjoys. Hannah does well at night; she sleeps on the floor or on her bed and doesn’t get up until her foster mom does in the morning.
Hannah does well meeting new people especially if that happens outside such as on a walk. If a person persists in petting her she may snap to show she is uncomfortable.
Hannah appears afraid of most other dogs. She is fine passing dogs on a walk, but if they initiate interaction she acts fearful. Hannah has lived with dogs before and may tolerate a passive male dog but we think the best option for her is to be an “only”.
Hannah is not super needy and she does not require a ton of exercise. She is a great companion, listens well and is great on housetraining.
We just love this girl and want to find her the best retirement home!
If you have interest in meeting Hannah, please fill out the adoption application. Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
