Will you be my Funny Valentine? Or my Santa Baby?

Because I Fall in Love Too Easily! My name is Chet and I'm a jazzy lovebug!

My heartstrings pluck a particular song that I'm hoping a particular family will hear!

I am a female, Labrador Retriever/Pitbull Terrier mix looking for a special family to hold onto me and never let go!

I'm still learning the chords of what it means to be a good girl: such as being comfortable in a crate and walking confidently on the leash. But, I'll figure it out with more and more practice. My foster family is teaching me so much and giving me so much love! So prepared for me to give that back to you!

I am a super excitable, mid-to-high energy dog, and I . . . sometimes forget my size around people! When my humans come home from work I transform from dog to jackrabbit and I jump all over the place and all over them!

I get along great with kids but remind your little ones that sometimes I forget just how little they are and how big I am!

I am a bit afraid of cars and loud noises, before I was rescued and brought to my foster I was living at a gas station all by myself so cars and loud sounds can be a bit too much for me sometimes.

I am curious about cats and chase them sometimes, thus I would do best in a household with no cats or cats that can hold their own against dogs. Please exercise patience if introducing me to any new housepets I don't know though.

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
