Labrador Retriever/Hound


Update: I am now 7 ½ months old, approximately 45 pounds and still growing. I am housebroken, however, I am also on a routine and I know what is expected of me. If you ask me if I have to go potties, I run to the door. Structure is very good for puppies. I also learned “leave it” and I enjoy playing with my fur-buddies.

I love to go for car rides and have been to Rescue events where I greet and meet humans and other dogs. I love belly rubs and, of course, getting petted. If you offer me a treat, I will sit and take the treat nicely from your hand.

I saw the orthopedic surgeon twice and the issue with my front legs is called distal curvus. The orthopedic surgeon said my case is mild and I do not need surgery. I do not limp and I am not lame which is all good. But when I am one years old, it is recommended to have another set of x-rays to compare to my first two sets to make sure everything is fine.

I am ready for go to my fur-ever home. I have so much love to give and, I wouldn’t mind receiving some loving. I am playful, energetic, cuddly, carefree and would love to be somebody’s companion for life. If you think I would make a great addition to your family, please fill in that application and ask for me! My foster mommy and daddy swear on their kitchen table, filled with treats, that I am the best puppy they ever fostered!

I am blind close up, but I do have some vision. The eye doctor told me I have detached retinas and tears in the retinas in both eyes. Right now, we are checking my eye pressures. They are normal for now. I also have cataracts but I adapt very well to my surroundings.

I have learned “sit” and “go to your crate”, and I love food, but I need to eat in my crate or somewhere by myself. I take treats very nicely. I do love treats! I am still mouthy, but it is soft. I am trying to learn not to do that, but I’m a puppy. Geez. I am also crate trained.

I would love to have a family of my own. I think a family with children over 10 might work best. I would also like a canine sibling, so if you have other dogs, that’s fine with me! I need a fenced in yard, as I am a puppy. And, most importantly, All I want is a family to help me with my needs and to love me as much as I will love you. And, I promise, I will love you forever.
