Hi, I'm Sydney. I’m adopted!
Labrador Retriever Mastiff | Young | Female | Large
I am a very friendly pup and love to play with other dogs and people. I know how to sit, stay, lay down, drop toys, and shake paws. I also know I did something bad when you tell me “No”, then I quickly settle down. I’d like to run free in a fenced yard, but I can jump over a 5-foot fence. Good thing I am good on a leash and love to go for walks, too!
I love having all the attention, but I will get used to sharing it with another equally friendly dog. Cats are very interesting to me, but they usually are not comfortable around me because I get so curious; I don’t want to hurt them, just want to play! When it’s TV time, I love to snuggle up on the couch and watch what you’re watching, but look out… I may give you a few kisses! I like to be wherever you are in the house because I love having company. I am usually a quiet dog, but I give a couple barks of excitement when I hear somebody at the door.
