What’s wonderful about Pearl
Pearl is a fun dog and a bit of a party girl. She has a mischievous side, and one of her favourite things to do is to retrieve items from around the house and bring them to you (with a wagging tail of course). She should have a sign that reads ‘will work for food’ and picks up new tricks and training eagerly.
A typical lab, Pearl is a friend to all dogs she meets, and is also good with cats. She grew up in a home with children and loves to cuddle and play with ‘her’ kids. Pearl is loving getting to know her new forever family.
WHERE Pearl NEEDS EXTRA SUPPORT
Pearl loves spending time with her person, but also enjoys time alone to relax and ‘be a dog’. She doesn’t always come when she’s called as she can get distracted off on her own adventures. Using a harness and longer leash on walks will keep her safe while she works to improve this important life skill. In a new home, Pearl may whine or bark in her kennel and in the past has chewed a few shoes. As she’s settling in, doing some mild ‘puppy proofing’ for the first several weeks will help to prevent bad habits from forming.
Someone must be home the majority of the day. As with all PADS dogs that have spent their lives in the full-time company of their raisers, the living situation must accommodate not leaving Pearl alone at home for more than 4 hours/day.
A stable home environment is required. This includes regular exercise, grooming, veterinarian care, food, as well as other necessary supplies and equipment.
Released PADS dogs do not have public access, meaning they are not allowed to enter malls, restaurants, hotels, or shops that are not pet friendly. They are only permitted to go to public locations that are pet dog friendly. Before releasing a dog from our program, PADS evaluates each dog for other working careers. Pearl is not eligible for any other working career. Therefore, one of the conditions of adoption is that she may not be used by other agencies for other working roles (some exceptions may apply depending on the reasons of release, such as volunteering as a pet visitation dog).
