POW! We’re Talking 11-Month-Old Chocolate Lab, Baby!

“Sometimes the best thing that can happen to a person is to have a puppy lick your face.”
Joan Bauer, author, screenwriter for young readers

We call her Baby because she’s an 11-month-old puppy, a puppy Chocolate lab, to be precise.


This sweet little girl was found as a stray, wandering the streets and neighborhoods of Sugar Grove. How could that have happened one might muse?

Well, perhaps whoever originally owned her didn’t realize that a Labrador retriever puppy means she has enough energy to power a small city and she will need a lot of puppy training as well as dog socialization.

Everyone knows that in the puppy world, boundaries don’t exist, everyone you meet is absolutely the best person ever which is why jumping on them is so fun and toys are for throwing around and ripping apart! Left unattended means rearranging a room to look like a tornado has hit it and electrical wires are new chew toys. Can you say, “Crate training?”

Perhaps they didn’t realize the amount of work little Baby would take to make her into the best dog in the county.

And that’s why Baby will need an experienced pet owner who is willing to take the time to give her the proper training she’ll need.

She’ll handle the hugs and kisses on her own.
