IZZY – Mexi-Lab Mix / 6 months / 5.6 kg / F-Spayed
Little Izzy is here and she is a sweet & cuddly pup! She’s curious about her surroundings and when she’s unsure she looks to her foster sister for guidance (if she can’t find her canine BFF, her human mom will have to do). When it comes to affection, she seems to prefer people over dogs. She is very food motivated which is helpful with training – she’s already mastered sit, wait for her food and wait before leaving her crate. She sleeps comfortably in her crate at night and sometimes goes in on her own during the day. Like a good girl, she is working on her house training and leash manners – she enjoys smelling all the different scents the world has to offer and walks in zigzags, for now, but we’ll get there! For house-training, she does ask to go out. It’s not perfect yet, but foster mom is pretty impressed.
Izzy loves to roll around in the grass, sun tan, take a nap in the shade while her foster sister plays around her, and you guessed it; take more naps inside curled up at your feet. She enjoys exploring on her walks but will also find grass to plop down on if she needs a break! She enjoys to chew on her toys and sometimes needs convincing to share them. Izzy is a medium energy pup whose dream family would have a backyard and an adult dog pal who is also calm but confident so they can continue guiding her. She hasn’t been introduced to children or cats but considering her gentle play style, she would probably do fine.
