Sheba

Black Labrador Retriever

 
Medium  |  Female

Grandview, MO

 

She is a Lab/"terrier" (pit) mix. She has an extremely high ball drive. She will literally play ball for hours if you let her. She is NOT good with other dogs. She has a tendency to attack other dogs that are around her when anyone walks in a room, or through a door; her trigger appears to be any type of door. By herself, she is very sweet to her humans but is not tolerant of any size dog that wants to share space. She came to me from Kim T. who does cat rescue. She found Sheba on the streets and asked if I could foster; We ended up keeping her. We have always had to keep her kenneled, or if she is with the other dogs, muzzled. Within the past 3 months, she has started to attack even with her muzzle on. Occasionally she will get the muzzle off and all hell breaks loose. I am afraid that she will kill any dog around her if/when she gets the muzzle off. My doxie will stop and look at her to see if her muzzle is on, before approaching her. If it is off, doxie hides. I try to keep a very close eye on her when she is around the others, but there isn't much I can do to break them up since my surgery. I think she is around 4 years old. She is up to date on all of her shots, she is micro-chipped and spayed. She appears to very healthy and last check she was heartworm negative. She does take a monthly heartworm pill. She will alert to strangers at the door but is usually very friendly after introductions. She is kennel trained, house trained and know a few basic commands. If she is in the room with you alone with no muzzle, she demands to play with her ball. (bossy) She will choose which ball that you are going to be throwing to her and she will not relent. It is that ball alone or she is not happy. As soon as the muzzle is back on, she will find a different ball that can be picked up by its fuzz or nubs. RELENTLESS, I SAY! She would make a great dog for a very active family that has older kids. She has been around my grandkids and they love her. Right now, she has started to get sores around her muzzle (from the nylon muzzle) and she also has a wound under her right eye, from fighting. I have been giving her cephalexin just to ward off infection. If you need any more info on her, I will be happy to answer any questions.
