All About Indy – Labrador Retriever dog For Adoption in PORTLAND Oregon

Name of Pet: Indy
Location: PORTLAND, Oregon, 97224
Type of Pet: dog
Breed of Pet: Labrador Retriever
Sex of Pet: Female
Age of Pet: 1.5 years
Spayed/Neutered?: Yes
Health Problems: No
Behavior Issues: Indiana is incredibly sweet but she guards her “places”, e.g. the couch. This doesn’t happen all the time, but when it does, it’s when she’s relaxing. She also guards items of high value to her, e.g. a new toy or special treat.

She’s wonderful at playing with my toddler and typically moves from the couch when people come along, but sometimes she doesn’t want to give up her spot, and has growled/lunged at people.

We now have a newborn at home and less time spent on her.  She recently lunged at my husband and tore his shirt. We were all tired from late nights with the baby, and should have dealt with things in a more positive manner. We feel that our reaction only escalated things (yelling at her).

She’s really good with kids, but because of this issue and the fact that kids cannot read cues as well, we don’t think she should be in a home with children. She should be with experienced dog owners who are able to work with her on this behavior through positive training methods.

She’s great with dogs and loves to play with them, but if she goes into a house with a new dog, she’ll need to get used to them before having meals/treats around them. She lived with my in-laws dog for six-months and had no guarding issues once they bonded. Indy is an amazing dog. She is a “diamond in the ruff”, and with some polishing up through positive training methods,  she will truly shine.

Up To Date on Vaccinations: Yes
Gets along with cats: Unknown
Gets along with dogs: Yes
Good with Children?: Yes ( but not suitable)
House Broken or Litter Trained?: Yes
Crate Trained?: Yes
Accessories Included: Crate, dog bed, blankets (small and big), food barrel/storage, 4-months of flea/tick medicine (as of now), collar, harness, two leashes, rain coat

Indy’s Personality

She’s very sweet and loves her family. She loves to be around us and likes to be involved with what’s happening in the house.

She’s somewhat energetic, and needs a 30+min walk in the morning. She also does well if we bring her out. She gets very excited to see other dogs and can bark as she wants to play. She loves the off leash dog park and can run around for a fair amount of time. She does well with other dogs at the park.

She’s goofy and gets the zoomies and plays/rolls around with family members.

Indy’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?

Toys: balls, kongs, bones. This isn’t a toy but she loves her bed (during the day) and crate at night
Foods: She eats Blue Buffalo (chicken and rice) and then we put plain chicken at the bottom. .
Activities: walking, dog park, throwing the ball at home, zoomies at home

Cute Indy Story:

We took her to Sellwood Riverfront Park a lot last summer and seeing her run around with my in-laws dog was amazing. She would high-tail it to the beach, but too afraid to go into the water at first. She built up her courage and started going further and further in and then finally was swimming around. She would run around so much and then coming panting back, with such a big smile on her face. It filled me with such happiness to see her running around.

Why is Indy Being Rehomed?

Listed above, but it’s the resource guarding. I wish we could work with her on this. But my toddler is very physical, he pulls on her and grabs her from behind, and has thrown toys at her. He does not get her cues. We are on top of them but we can’t control every decision he makes, especially when there’s only one adult home at times and we also have a newborn.

Indy’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:

1. No children
2. If there’s other dogs, dogs on the more laid back side that can guide her into maturity
3. Experienced owners that understand how to deal with resource guarding
4. A big, securely fenced back yard.

We love Indy so much! It’s killing us that we’re at this point because she is a first hand family member and she’s so sweet and special. I remember picking her up in the pouring rain from the airport when she was a 9-lb puppy and was terrified of her crate—promising to protect her from her old life.

It’s crushing that we will not be her forever home but we need to think of our children and also Indy’s well-being. It’s heartbreaking, but we cannot provide what she needs at this stage of our family life.
