1 year old spayed female lab mix, 60 lbs
Milly is a fun, playful, sweetheart. She was found as a stray in Monterey County and MBLRR rescued her from the shelter. She was so covered in foxtails that her beautiful tail and part of her hindquarters needed to be trimmed as my vet couldn’t get a comb through them. It took 2 hours to remove all the foxtails and the ones in her ears and her anal glands had to be surgically removed. But through it all, she’s been a trooper. She is now over her kennel cough and is ready for a new home. We’re not sure what she’s mixed with, but she’s a pretty girl with a lab personality. Her markings are so distinctive and we love the stripes on her tail. Milly is now housebroken and sleeps through the night on a dog bed in the foster’s bedroom. She also loves to snuggle on the couch and her new family needs to be OK with that. Milly is scared of sudden loud noises, tho she’s fine with music being played loud. We think she would be best in a calm adult home as a result. She’d be friendly with children to be sure, but a quiet home is really essential for Milly’s well being. She’s learned to play with toys but prefers chew toys (Nylabones and Kongs). She is afraid of squeaky toys. She will tear up toys, however, so whatever toys she has need to be indestructible. She also has a penchant for shoes. Milly loves her walks and walks well with an Easy Walk Harness. She is friendly and playful with other dogs. She needs to be in a cat free home as she loves to chase things (birds and squirrels). Milly also loves to dig holes in the sand (the the foster’s backyard is on the sand dunes). She will bark if something outside worries her, but she is not a persistent barker. Milly is a happy dog and wiggles her whole body when she’s excited. She loves affection of any kind and is happy to lie in your lap or by your feet. She gets so happy when her fosters play with her that she gets a case of the “zoomies.” She comes when called and is learning sit and down. Milly also loves lying in the sun. She’s secure enough that she doesn’t have to follow her people everywhere, but she wants to know where everyone is. She travels well in the car, tho will need to be tethered so she doesn’t climb into the front seat. As always, we want Milly to go to a home where someone is home most of the time even after the pandemic is over. And we insist on a quiet, adult home where she will get a couple of good long walks every day. She will be fine as an only dog, but would also do well with another confident dog who could maybe help her with her fear of noises. Milly is a gentle, sweet youngster and her new family will love her!
