Babs is a fun 3-4-year-old Labrador. She
looks to be either a Chesapeake Bay Retriever or a Chocolate Lab. Prior
to coming to the rescue, it is likely that Babs was living in the woods
for a period of time. She had pretty bad skin with a very sparse coat
of hair and tested positive for heartworms. Since being in her foster
home for a couple of months, her condition has improved greatly. The
itching and scratching has been taken care of and her skin and coat are
healing nicely. She’s finished her heartworm treatments and hopes to be
free and clear when she is rechecked in a few weeks. Babs is a very
sweet dog who will likely follow her human from room to room. She
listens very well when inside the house and in a fenced-in yard. While
Babs could undoubtedly climb over a 5-foot chain link fence…she has not
made a serious attempt to at her foster home. Though she would very much
like to “play” with the rabbits that always manage to escape the yard.
Babs is not much for barking, even when other dogs are barking at her.
Bab’s new parent(s) should be strict with her feeding. She has a huge
appetite and would likely eat herself to an unhealthy weight, given the
chance. Additionally, she is not above helping herself if the dog food
is not secured very well. She does need quite a bit of work walking on a
leash…she still gets very excited to go new places. As soon as her
heart worm treatment is complete her foster parent will be working with
her on that. She rides well in the car and is house trained.
