We have a special needs girl. She is sweet, kind and gentle and will only bond with a warm loving gentle female. She has been gentle around children and will watch them play but won't join in. Boogie likes to lay by your side and get a little love once in a while. She is not overbearing. She is afraid of men and cats and yelling, we don't know why.
We purchased her as a puppy to use in our breeding program and was like this from the start. If you call someone outside she thinks you are yelling and her and she smiles and comes to you wagging her tail in submission.
She is a large girl 98 pounds and full of wonder at new places and sounds. She will guard the house and bark at strangers and would scare someone who didn't know how gentle she is. She has never had puppies and we have had her spayed. She has had x-rays done of her hips and elbows, eye Cerf, and has been tested for thyriod,PRA disease and EIC disease. She is clear of every disease looked for in the Labrador.
