Big Mama

Labrador Retriever - Senior - Female
Adoptable Large Spayed/NeuteredHousetrained

Big Mama came to us from a kill shelter after being dumped by her family who no longer had time for her. She was obese and could barely get around. Big won our hearts immediately with her big, sad heartbroken eyes. Since being with us she has lost weight and with the help of an anti-inflammatory is getting around like a girl half her age. She’s active, alert and rules the roost in her foster home. We had hoped to change her name but just couldn’t since she knew it so well and she seemed to find comfort in knowing we knew who she was. Her foster parents compromised so now she answers to Big.

She can stand up on her hind legs or jump about a foot in the air for a treat, she does love her food more than anything. Getting and giving love and attention is her second fav and she is really good at that too. She can sit and catch her biscuits and could probably learn just about anything given enough time as long as the treats kept coming; old dogs like Ms. Big can certainly learn new tricks.

Big is great with people and loves attention. She is great with children but shouldn’t be with small children or toddlers as she is such a chow hound. She lives with lots of other dogs and gets along with everyone, little ones literally climb over top of her. Treat time she can grab a biscuit right out of their mouth she’s so motivated and actually hasn’t gotten into trouble because she is so quick.

This young at heart girl is fully vetted, spayed, current with vaccines and micro chipped. She is on flea/tick and heartworm prevention.
