How did you get to her photobucket account? I feel like I'm spying opening that. Adorable pup though!!!!!!
Yep, it was me. And I didn't mean to, but it showed up when I was searching forums for a different topic.... sorry all, I will look at the date next time.I don't think they do it on purpose. Related threads show at the bottom of every post, and people probably click on them not realizing that they are old.
most obvious attempt at trolling everI don't know why everyone's so up in arms about this, and questioning your judgement as if you're not even a sane person just because you don't jive with your lab. I'm three months pregnant and have a 7 month old lab puppy and I hate the **** thing! I really feel you on this. My husband got the dog for bird retrieval during winter hunting, but is gone at least once a month for work. So I'm saddled with this dog (and I am not a dog person) I have to keep yelling my lungs out at her every second of every day so she doesn't grow up thinking it's ok to chew her way through the house, etc. it's not really the dogs fault, it's my husbands for being en epic jerk and leaving this needy, needy dog breed we me at least once a month, but in general, labs are dependent, overly energetic, clumsy, annoying, and clingy. On a good day. She follows me around all day staring at me and it's like "get a life, you sad sack! Go do something with your time!" But weirdly enough, there are lots of forums in which women who are pregnant hate their dogs, so maybe it's a pregnancy thing. Who knows.
Hello. I'm having the same problem. I specifically got an English Labrador (supposedly calmer). She is very assertive (borderline aggressive), no interest in pleasing, and does whatever she feels like doing. She is still quite young. But I'd like any advice. Yes I studied for 2 months before deciding on this breed. Talked with breeders also. I've owned Afghans, Dachshund, Queensland Heeler mix and an Italian Grayhound. I never had a dog like this Lab who absolutely acts like a wild woman at all times, training doesn't stick, and insist of using the bathroom in the house. I take her out a couple times an hour every hour during the day and about 3 to 4 times throughout the night.I'm sorry you are having this experience with your lab. There are two different lines of Labs. One bred and more suited for field and hunting and the other one is much calmer. Unfortunately sounds like your boy may be more suited for the field...needs a job...focus...release of energy. Labs are living creatures with their own personalities... each alittle different. I have 3 labs, 2 being brother and sister and they are all completely different in some ways yet typical lab characteristics in others (willing to please, love to be around people, loving) Sometimes when people don't know Labs and the genes that drive the lab they are about to buy they end up with the wrong line of lab for their home.
I agree with finding a different home for him. You may be able to train him...he may grow out of some of it but it doesn't sound like a good match with your household. I can say I wouldn't keep a dog I couldn't control either. There are lots of rescue groups out there and it sounds like you have had some good offers here too. Good luck and I hope everything works out !
