06/26/16 11:40 Basic Information: Fenway is a 5 year old spayed Chesapeake Bay retriever mixed with Labrador retriever. She was adopted from an online shelter called Lucky Labs 4 years ago. She was surrendered because her previous owner is moving and can no longer have her. She has no injuries or health problems and the last time she went to the vet was 7/30/15. Socialization: Around strangers Fenway is shy for a few hours and when she played with adults she is exuberant. She lived with children ages 6-15 and with them she was relaxed and playful and was exuberant at play. She lived with an elderly Lab and with him she was relaxed and respectful. Behavior: Fenway did nip a person 1 year ago but it did not break skin. She has never bitten another animal. During storms or fireworks she becomes nervous. She was not allowed on furniture. She is friendly if she was restrained. She isn’t bothered if she is disturbed while sleeping. She is tolerant during baths and loves being brushed with soft bristle brushes. She is afraid of having her nails trimmed but tolerates it. She is friendly if an unfamiliar person approached her previous home or owner but shy initially. For a New Family to Know: Fenway is described as friendly, playful, shy, mellow, excitable, and anxious with a medium activity level. The two things her previous owner liked most about her were; she cuddles and is playful. Her favorite activities are swimming in the lake and playing with feathers. When her previous owner’s was home she would tend to follow them around. She likes playing with balls, chew toys and sticks and her favorite game is fetch. She was kept indoors only and at night she slept in her dog crate. She ate dry Science Diet. She is house trained and never had accidents indoors. She is well behaved when left alone indoors or in the yard. She is crate trained and does well for 8 hours with an open door. She knows to cues; “sit”, “cage”, and “do your business.” She was taken on brisk walks twice daily. On leash she pulls lightly and off leash she wanders and comes when called. Behavior during intake: Fenway was shaking and would back away when approached. She ducked down when I attempted to pet her. She turned her head quickly toward my hand and turned her body facing me when I scanned her. She sat on cue. After a few minutes she laid next to me and I pet her but after the third time she growled.

A volunteer writes: Wowza!!! Is Fenway gorgeous or what?!!! It’s not often we see a beauty with her breeding, brains and training come through the Care Center but here she is, a Chesapeake Bay/Labrador Retriever who’s house trained, crate trained, walks like a dream on leash, knows commands for ‘come’, ‘sit’, ‘cage’ and even ‘do your business’, likes other dogs, enjoys being groomed and of course…LOVES to swim! There’s nothing more fun than taking a dip with a furry BFF, and Fenway would be thrilled to join you at the beach, the lake or in the paddling pool this summer, and for many glorious summers to come. She’s lived in relaxed harmony with kids of all ages and an elderly Lab brother too, and while she can be shy at first with strangers, once this good girl feels comfortable with new people, she’s very playful, sweet and gentle. Fenway’s feeling a bit nervous amid all the noise and bustle of the Care Center, but she’s starting to relax off-leash and lets me pet her lush fur all over without complaint, happily wagging her tail when it’s time to leash up again and head out for a walk. Her former owner took great care of Fenway since her adoption as a teenager, and now she just needs someone to carry that good work on into her happy, healthy middle age. Pets as beautiful and well-behaved as Fenway don’t come along every day but this dreamy girl is already spayed and ready to go, please step up for her today!
