This bundle of joy!
Why hello there, hooman! My name is Haddie. I am about 1-year-old, female, Lab Mix weighing around 47 lbs. I am here because The Animal Pad rescued me from being surrendered due to my family’s unfortunate circumstances. I am house/bathroom/leash trained! I have great house manners, crate trained, and I will even let you know if I want to go out! I am great on the leash 95% of the time but I do lunge and pull sometimes. I have a scheduled spaying appointment.
My foster says I am the sweetest girl. I’m super cuddly, sassy, funny, and kind of human like. I’ve been through a lot, from being in a home, to living in a car, then TAP, and now a foster, so potential adopters will need to be patient with me as this will be another major change in a short period of time. It took me about 2-3 days to warm up to my current foster and let my personality shine, and now at two weeks, we can’t get enough of each other. I have medium-high energy in the morning, but throughout the day it simmers down to low-medium (Netflix and chill please). I’m still a young pup that gets zoomies and loves to chase my tail. I do need to be the only doggo in the home. I am reactive to some doggos while out on walkies. It’s mostly because of boundary frustration and I know can be good playmates with a submissive male or other well-matched dogs with some slow introduction. Redirection and obedience classes will help. I also love to give a warning of any possible intruders, so I will bark at the doorbell, knocks on the door, people out in the hall, or other doggos walking by the window. We’re working on my “quiet” command and redirection, but this is something that has been embedded in me for maybe all my life – so please be patient with me! I am fine being alone and enjoy my alone time and being independent. As I warm up to you more, I will start following you around — but I’ll just sit and watch you. I’m half Velcro pup/half independent. Now onto little hoomans! I LOVE them! We love interacting with each other. My favorite thing is most likely tug of war. I enjoy walkies, runs, the beach, and any outdoor activity but I enjoy being in the house, snuggled up on the couch just as much. I’m adaptable to anyone’s energy, but I will enjoy an active family as I love to investigate and stop to sniff everything while outside. I enjoy training, but don’t push me past my limits. My favorite foods include cheese and peanut butter.
My perfect furever home would be one with love! I need to be the only doggo at home. I adore little hoomans, but if you have any they will need to be at the meet and greet to make sure that the little hooman can handle my energy and plays well with me. My adoption fee is $400 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
