Fern is a beautiful Black Lab/Golden Retriever mix and weighs a whopping 80lbs. Yep, she’s a big one! But that’s all the more dog to love! Don’t worry, she’s about where she should be seeing as how she is almost 2 years old.
Playing with other dogs is Fern’s idea of a fabulous time. Regular dog park trips are a great way to let out her energy and she doesn’t require structured introductions.
Fern is a good, even-keeled pup who isn’t bossy with other 4-legged friends, but also not a completely submissive roll-over-on-the-floor or lick-your-face-all-the-time dog. She’s definitely confident at the dog park, but if a dog puts up a stink, she’d rather take no part in that. So she’d basically do fine in any home, pup or not, old or young, though, for your sanity, younger and more playful is a better match Rain doesn’t stop Fern from having a fabulous time – she’ll dance around in it like nobody’s business and she does her business in it without complaint. The only thing that seems to scare her so far is the vacuum. But no one in her household is a fan of that!
As soon as Jeb entered the interaction pen, he ran for the first toy he spied and began tossing it in the air. He’s a happy, playful boy! He’s also quite handsome though he’s a little thin right now, and I could feel his backbone and ribs when I petted him. I imagine he’ll add a few pounds quickly; he certainly enjoys treats. Jeb has the sweetest face that goes right along with his personality.
Meet Dixie! This beautiful Treeing Walker Coonhound is about 50lbs and is right where she should be. At only a year old, she still has some learning to do but is just crazy friendly to her doggy roommates!
Dixie has several 4-legged roomies and LOVES playing! She tends to leave her much smaller housemates alone and gives all of the other dogs their space if they don’t want to play, so she’s proving to be able to pick up on cues and be respectful. Soft introductions to other dogs aren’t necessary and Dixie does very well at the dog park. When other pups aren’t joining into the fun and she really, really wants them to, that’s when you hear that bay howl!!
