Mariner is an 8 year old black spayed female. She weighs 65 pounds and is approved for kids 10 and up. She is good with other dogs and is heartworm negative. Mariner is a sweet and shy girl who is learning the joys of being an indoor dog. She is very well behaved in the house and is not crated. She walks well on leash, but does get startled easily, so walking with a harness is best. Mariner enjoys the company of other calm dogs to hang out with and take the lead from. Mariner needs a single family home in a quiet neighborhood and a calm living environment. Her new home must have a fenced yard.
From Mariner's Foster Family - Sep 25, 2015: Sweet Mariner is the best little Lab looking for a new forever family. She's so happy - a master at wagging - and her house skills are perfect (shh...don't tell people with countersurfers but there's been an open bag of dogfood on the kitchen floor for two weeks)
Now, I know that everyone hates the easy going labs so I'll spell out a Mariner day.
Wake up, wag at foster mom, cruise the backyard, supervise breakfast prep, eat breakfast, cruise the backyard and keep foster mom company while she has her morning coffee. Nap until we go out again and we cruise the backyard *new twist to this this week, nap until we go out again, repeat dinner, repeat wag, cruise etc...cookies and cuddles before bed...zzzzz. You can see how hard she is to take care of.
Our new twist to cruising the backyard. Mariner has become part of the cleaning crew. She loves to go out and find the toys in the backyard and bring them back into the house. I had NO IDEA there were that many balls and toys back there but they're slowly coming inside. Jake says 'thank you Mariner...now mom can clean the balls so I can bring them out again'.
Her only need is a fenced yard because she really, really doesn't want to do the big walks but she loves cruising the yard.
