11 year old Misty was originally listed on our website on 16 August for rehoming with her friend Maddy. Recently, however, their foster carer has realised that they aren’t as close as they were when they first arrived, and so we will now consider rehoming them separately to try to find them homes more quickly. Of course, if you would like to offer them a home together, we will still be very happy to hear from you!

Examples of them becoming more independent are: they now don’t sleep together or even sleep in the same room, they don’t lick each other anymore and enjoying a walk in the park, they rarely stay anywhere near each other when out!

Their foster carer has done a trial separation of them - Misty went to stay with the foster carer’s mum for a couple of days - and there were no signs of Misty and Maddy missing one another. However, they did still have other doggy company when they were separated, so if they are rehomed separately, we would only rehome them to homes where there is an existing dog for company. They have got on well with all dogs they have met.

An update on Misty’s character is that she is more of a ‘plod-along’ dog. She enjoys sniffing everything when on walks, taking her time. She wanders off when off lead but never runs away - you just have to go and get her. She doesn’t bark and is a very tolerant girl. She needs her ears cleaning once a week but she doesn’t mind this at all. Misty can jump in the car by herself. The only negatives that her foster carer could think of are that Misty counter-surfs, raids bins and eats homework. What a girl!!

Below are the Misty-related parts of the original website entry dated 16 August 2009:
————

Misty is a gorgeous 11 year old Labrador who is currently being cared for in an Oldies Club foster home in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. She settled in very quickly and this is what their foster mum has to say about her and Maddy:

They showed some interest in my two resident cats when they first arrived, but after a couple of days they decided to ignore them. They are both clean and quiet in the house and very rarely bark. They are very bright girls and have learned a few commands already and now walk well on the lead. They do pull a little to begin with, but only because they’re so keen to sniff everything.

Misty has a tendency to wander and gets so interested in what she’s doing she forgets to keep her eye on you. She is excellent when travelling in the car and she’s good with people and children of all ages. She greets strangers very nicely and isn’t worried by loud noises, not even thunder.

In true Labrador style, Misty loves her food and all bins need to be secured! She even takes a keen interest in cat litter trays, so potential new owners with cats - please be warned!

Misty is used to being left for up to 4 1/2 hours without any problems. She loves being groomed and doesn’t even object to the occasional bath. This affectionate girl will fit very nicely into almost any home.

Misty has been spayed and had a couple of harmless lumps removed. She is in good health and is microchipped, vaccinated and flea and worm treated.

Maybe ask some Lab rescues if they will feature her on their websites?

Both Misty & Maddy are listed on Lab Forums. I know we've got a homecheck in for a lab but I dont know which one.
