Brandy: 7 year old female yellow Lab 80 pounds

Hi. I am Brandy, a recently retired puppy-mama (with 4 very cute litters in my resume!). I’m ready to trade in my backyard life for a new home where I get to live inside with my family and sleep on a cozy dog bed. I am in my prime at 7, and I still have a lot of energy – looking forward to regular walks or hikes with my new family to explore new worlds (I never got out of my backyard before). I do like to sleep after walks! I’m a little chubby, so regular walks will also help me achieve and maintain my ideal weight and condition. I never got socialized with other dogs, so I really need someone to provide leadership and help me feel safe when we encounter them.
Want to join me? If so, I promise to give you so much love and companionship.
What Brandy’s Foster Family says: It is so hard to write how amazing Brandy is. We’re having some pretty major construction done and she hasn’t barked once. Not. once. This dog is unbelievable! She needs someone who is semi-lazy and a home body.
We took her to our cabin over the weekend, and she loved it up in Arnold. All of the smells, and the squirrels…she was definitely showing her strength on walks!
Brandy has been a very welcome addition to our family from the moment we brought her home. We have three small kids (6, 4.5, 2) and Brandy is a dream around them – she has consistently demonstrated patience, calm, and love. We all know how two-year olds can be, and Brandy takes it like a champ! She is fully house and crate trained.
Laid back and mellow, Brandy has been enjoying our two or three short walks each day followed by hours of sleep on her fluffy dog bed amidst the chaos of a family of five. I’ve heard her bark one time when the neighbor had a cable guy on the roof. We are having some major construction done to our house right now and she just sleeps through the noise. Hasn’t barked a single time.
We have been working with her on leash and she has come quite a long way. We will continue to take Brandy to private training so her forever family will have an easier transition. This dog deserves all of the love in the world. She is seriously the best.
What Brandy’s Rescue Rep says: Brandy is ready for some “golden” years with a family that is around a lot and includes her in activities inside and outside. During a 3 week board and train session with a very experienced trainer, Brandy learned to be more settled around other dogs, and learned some basic obedience, including walking in a heel position. We are looking for a home with a leader that will maintain and build on these new skills. She would be happiest as an only dog. She IS treat motivated, smart, and looks forward to learning a fuller range of obedience commands. She did lose some of her extra pounds during training, and controlled portions with regular walks will help her achieve her ideal weight.
Medical Information: Brandy is microchipped, heartworm negative and current on shots. She will be spayed soon.
Brandy is located in: Novato
