Featured Dog: Carissa – GBNF

Do you like labrador retrievers? You might like Carissa, a 6-month old female lab mix, who is a great example of the breed. According to American Kennel Club, labrador retrievers are known for being gentle, intelligent, and family friendly. They are also known for their aptitude to please their humans, or rather, for their motivation to be trained.

Carissa the goofy

Carissa is certainly gentle, intelligent, and family friendly (though due to her energetic nature she is probably best for children over 12). She’s also very trainable and very food and toy motivated. As you can see, she has very tall ears, which makes me think she might have a little shepherd in her.

She knows ‘sit’ and often has a happy smile on her face, especially if you exercise her before walking. She would LOVE to be your running companion (she would also love to run along you while you bike) or if you are looking for some outdoor time throwing balls and toys, she would love that too.

Carissa has a big smile

Here are videos of her playing:

After a long session of playing, she will literally collapse at your feet and ask for a bellyrub. There seems to be nothing better than a relaxing bellyrub after all that running and chasing!

Carissa loves bellyrubs!
