******DO NOT USE THE INTRODUCE YOURSELF OPTION THAT PETFINDER PROVIDES

All dogs are placed in loving foster homes during their time with us, we do not have a shelter to visit.
DOB 06-09-23, Cherie is a Labrador Retriever/ Poodle mix puppy who was surrendered by a commercial breeder along with her brother Sonny
Her estimated adult weight will be approx 65lbs
Due to her large breed and the health risks of early neuter/spay in young large breed dogs, we will not be doing early spay, in order to provide her with her best maturity/growth potential.
Spay will be scheduled for late November/early December, in Waterloo, prior to her first heat
Adoption on a non breeding / spay contract will only be considered with families who live close enough to Waterloo ON to return for her spay surgery at an appropriate age, at our expense
Registration with an approved positive method trainer for classes will be mandatory.
Cherie came to us as a very young frightened and nervous puppy, and has come leaps and bounds already! Cherie is a puppy full of life who loves to play, learn and snuggle. She is still a bit on the cautious side at first, but warms up quickly in new situations like meeting new people or going into new places.
Keeping up with her socialization and letting her decide when she
is ready to greet someone is the key to her growing more confident in new situations. Due to her less confident nature, children must be over 10yrs/dog savvy and respectful.
Cherie love belly rubs!
She plays very well with other puppies, sleep all night in her crate,
and is learning skills like, walking, sits, downs, wait, stays, & come when called
Her growing confidence improvement is partially related to being fostered with other dogs as well as dedicated socialization and training in her foster home.
It will be a requirement in Cherie's forever home to have a suitable canine companion to help her continue to thrive. Having visits with other dogs is not the same as living with one in her home.
NOTE: Cherie is now very healthy but does have Base narrow mandibular canines
We may need to perform dental work on the adult teeth as the 804 has a severe malocclusion-this will be done at our expense during her spay surgery if needed. Cherie is currently following the dental protocol for correction called Ball Therapy (read more here http://www.toothvet.ca/PDFfiles/ball_therapy.pdf)
