Active, 2-Year Old Lab-Mix Up for Adoption In San Diego

Meet Kaiser, a 2 year old, 55 pound, male, Labrador mix. He was rescued in Sonora, then transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society. Kaiser is an active dog who needs an active home with a family that has lots of time to tire him out both mentally and physically. Kaiser needs a family that will continue to teach him “4 on the floor”. This means not giving him any attention until all four feet are on the floor. This will teach him that he earns attention he wants when he’s polite and his feet are on the floor.

Learn more about Kaiser, here.

The $145 adoption fee for Kaiser includes medical exam, neuter, up to date vaccinations, registered microchip, and a one-year license if the adopter lives in the jurisdiction of San Diego Humane Society’s Department of Animal Services.

If you have adopted a pet during COVID and are heading back to work, Rancho Coastal Humane Society has some helpful tips.

  • Help your pet adjust to your changing schedule. Begin by leaving your pet alone in a “Retreat Area” for a few minutes. Turn on some music or the TV. Every time you do this, increase your pet’s time alone.
  • Particularly with a new pet who you’ve never left alone before, watch for Separation Distress including destructive behaviors. Give them something to do, like a toy or a treat puzzle.
  • Older pets who have adjusted to your stay-at-home schedule might be more “needy.” Be patient. Give them lots of reassurance that everything is going to be okay.
  • If your dog has gotten used to 8 or 10 walks per day because you had nothing else to do, start cutting back. You can go for a walk without your pet. You still get your exercise, but it helps the pet adjust to the fact that things are changing.
