Stork is at that super fun age where she's not quite a puppy, not quite an adult dog. At about 6 months old, she's fully vaccinated and ready for adventures, eager to learn and picks up on training FAST, is house and crate trained, sleeps through the night, and is still super playful and bouncy like a puppy! We think Stork is a mix of Lab and Shepherd, and at about 40 lbs she's on track to be a large dog when full grown. Since she and her siblings came in without a mom or dad, we aren't sure exactly how big she will grow or what breeds she is mixed with, but we think there is some Lab and Shepherd in the mix. She has been receiving treatment from one of our veterinarians for a minor urinary tract issue that has now cleared up, but they are recommending she stay on some supplements, Dasuquin and crananidin. Both of these are easily available and cost about $10-$15 for a one month supply.

Stork is a social butterfly and is delighted to meet new friends- human or canine- and the dog park is one of her favorite places to go. Stork has excellent social manners and plays nicely with dogs of all ages and sizes, but is still sometimes forgets not to jump or get too mouthy during playtime. She's very confident and has never met a stranger she doesn't think is an immediate best friend! She usually picks up on cues when a dog isn't interested, but this can be a work in progress, she just wants everyone to be her friend. She's a total busy body and her foster parents report that she is a perfect example of an older puppy who has a great mix of playful and mischievous intelligence.

Her personality blossoms when she is around other dogs and she has learned a LOT from her canine foster bro, but she's a confident little lady and would be happy in a home as an only dog as long as she gets lots of social time at parks, playgroups, and day camps. Regular trips to dog beach are one of her favorite things, second only to running and playing with dog friends. Her hobbies include learning new tricks for treats, wrestling with her canine foster siblings, playing fetch, and stealing slippers. Chewing bones and stuffed toys can keep her occupied for hours, and this silly girl will make you laugh with her constant antics. Stork can be pretty fearless- at her first beach trip she wasn't scared of waves and even swam a little bit! She seems to like playing with dogs more than snuggling up to her people and isn't a super cuddly dog, but she will leap into your lap for quick snuggles while playing or lean against your feet while chewing a bone. She's fostered in a condo in an urban area and makes a great condo dog, as long as she gets appropriate playtime and a midday potty break. This smarty pants is working on her leash skills and learning fast! She understands the concept of loose leash walking but sometimes the smells and people on the street get the best of her. Stork is potty trained and crate trained in her foster home and she will take herself outside or walk to the door when she needs to go outside. She can be crated up to 5 hours during the day, and she sleeps quietly in her crate overnight. She'll even let you sleep in as long as she has a stuffed toy to chew on when she wakes up. If you're looking for all the fun of a puppy, but want a young pup who is sleeping through the night and is fully vaccinated and ready for adventures, Tweet Pup Stork or one of her siblings might be the dog for you!

Stork is looking for a family that understands the time, patience, and energy needed to raise a young pup. We require all puppy adopters to provide training that includes: house training, basic training, leash training, and socialization. Additionally, this cutie is going to need proper exercise, mental stimulation, and your attention and love to grow up to be the best companion. We do not allow our dogs or puppies to sleep or live outside; they must be incorporated into your family and be made a priority in your life. In return, you will have the most loving and loyal family member you could ask for. If you think you are ready to add to your family by adopting a puppy, then fill out an adoption application on our website today! We recommend completing the application process and connecting with a adoption coach before looking for a dog or puppy you'd like to adopt. If you're already approved to adopt or if you've adopted from Labs and More before, connect with your adoption coach for the next steps.
