Mabel – Adopted!!!


born ~August 2018

Nearly crate trained

Nearly housebroken

Welcome Mabel! Mabel is a 4 month old lab-shepherd mix puppy who we think will top out at around 50 pounds once she’s full grown. Mabel didn’t have the best start to life, so she’s currently learning how to be a puppy!

Mabel is nearly potty trained! She knows that outside is where she should go potty, but sometimes her bladder just can’t hold it any more! But, Mabel tries really hard to wait until she’s outside to do her business. Mabel is also crate trained! Foster Mom said that Mabel picked up on crate training very quickly – Mabel is a fast learner! Mabel will go into her kennel on command, and will lay quietly in there until Foster Mom comes home.

Mabel is still a little shy around other dogs, but she is willing to approach them to see if they want to be friends! Mabel currently lives with other ACR adoptables and Foster Mom’s own dogs, and has started trying to play with them. We think that once she’s older she will be a good dog park dog as long as her confidence keeps going up! As far as feline friends go, Mabel met one at the vet’s office, and didn’t really react to it. Mabel is shy with new human friends, too, but quickly warms up once she realizes that they just want to give her some love!

Mabel is a puppy, so she has a lot of puppy energy. She loves to play around the house and chew on some toys, and then takes a nice nap. One of her favorite ways to get energy out is practicing her puppy paws – she prances towards objects and taps them with her paws to make sure they’re safe/good to play with or investigate! Once she’s done exploring, she’ll climb up on the couch and cuddle next to Foster Mom. But, she can self-entertain with a toy if Foster Mom is busy.
