Bio: CARLEE NEEDS A DOG EXPERIENCED FOSTER HOME IMMEDIATELY! Carlee is a 1 1/2 yr. old Lab X who was found as a pregnant stray in WA. She was going to be gassed so a rescue group took her in. After she had her puppies, she was kept for nine months in a kennel. Because no-one wanted her, she was scheduled to go to the gas chamber again but a colleague in Seattle rescued her and sent her to us. We found a foster to adopt home for her but the interaction with the family's grandmother/babysitter was negative, so she was there only 9 days. Bad timing for Carlee as I had no foster homes available and had to board her at the Vet's where she has been getting only a 1/2 hr. walk per day from one of our volunteers. She needs a home with someone who understands leadership with dogs, who can provide training and consistency and who can recondition her to living in a home. She is seriously regressing at the Vet's. She has lost her house training and is beginning to get spooked by movement (cars and bicycles) when she is out and is super hyper, jumping up when someone comes to see her, nipping at their hands. I don't think she is an aggressive dog...she just needs calming, exercise and one on one love. Her major bad issue is that she resource guards "high quality treats". I recommend she not be in a home with other dogs or children. I am desperate to find her a home immediately. I can't put her back into the Vet's...I already feel terribly guilty having had to leave her there for so long. One of our volunteers who walked Carlee for the last week, wrote the following, but notes that she is deteriorating rapidly: I took Carlee for a walk today and, at first impression, she wasn't as large as she looked in the photos I was shown. She was gentle and only pulled slightly on the leash at times. I jogged with her and she was really good. When it came time to give her a biscuit, she sat nicely and took the cookie gently. Her fur is so soft ( like a teddy bear ) and she is in good shape. I'm sure she'll make someone very happy! Her initial foster mom commented: She is going to make someone a lovely pet - hopefully someone who can spend some one on one time with her to give her the continuity and correction she needs. Over the short time we had her, she proved to be good with other dogs - tolerant of the cat and a generally friendly girl. Very good on the leash. I am not sure she has been an indoor dog as there have been a few accidents but that would be easily remedied with training. I would say a house with older children would be ok but there would have to be supervision. She is a VERY smart. Not a big fan of the crate and will bark when put into it for a bit but accepts it in the end. Also loves to tear apart balls Can you help?
