4 year old, Labrador X Golden Retriever ~ $400.
Meet Gracie, affectionately known as Gracie-Goose, a 4 year old Labrador X Golden Retriever. Gracie is highly affectionate and loves nothing more than spending time with her humans. She has a calmer temperament than your traditional Labrador, but still gets super excited over food and fetch. During play time, Gracie is the Queen of Fetch, and also loves a good splash around in the water.In quiet times, Gracie loves to lean against her humans and adores pats. She is highly responsive to her humans, and will turn to them for assurance when she isn’t sure of something.Gracie can be a little unsure around new dogs, and reacts with panic when they get in her face. She has improved in this respect with training during her time with GAR and will gain more confidence with continued training. Gracie is in care with another large dog and also cats, so we know she is friendly around feline friends.It is paramount that Gracie’s new home is able to include her as a true member of the family and include her in all activities. She is fine around cats and kiddies, and will integrate well into a house with another dog, as long as careful introductions and socialisation is followed. Gracie would not enjoy long periods spent alone, and requires daily walks and lots of attention.We wish we didn’t have to say it but, given the timing that Gracie has become available – dogs are not for Christmas! While we know life can throw us some uncertain curve balls, please do not apply for an animal unless you are convinced at this time that you can give them their forever home. Dogs are wonderful, but they are a lot of work.Gracie is desexed, microchipped and is up to date with vaccinations, flea and worm treatments.
