My name is Blacky and I'm a healthy 1.5 yr old boy. I am coming to Lab Rescue because my family is moving and cannot take me with them. They are also finding it hard to provide me with the necessary love and exercise I deserve because they work long hours.
Personality wise my foster parents say I shine in every aspect. I am a young vibrant boy so its important I go to a home where my family has lots of time to help me become the good boy I am destined to become. I am food motivated which makes me super easy to train. I am attentive and eager to please my humans, and my foster parents are so proud of everything I have learned in just a short period of time.
I am fully house trained and do not get into the garbage. I have to admit I will help myself to snacks on the counter if my humans leave a yummy and tempting treat out within my reach. I only tend to bark if new friends are at the door. I feel the need to make sure my humans are safe and I am the bodyguard of the house. My favourite spot in the house is wherever my foster mom and dad are hanging out. At bedtime I help myself into their bed and snuggle between them. I mean that's what beds are for right?
I have a bundle of energy so I really enjoy my walks. I am walked on a harness and seem to do really well on it. My foster dad has trained me to walk right beside him. After walks I love to sprawl out on a cold floor or sit on the air conditioning vent to hog all the cool air.
I did live with a cat but depending on my mood I do like the game of chase here and there.
With dogs, I take some time to warm up. I am not sure if I was really socialized a lot as a puppy or what happened but it usually takes a few minutes of slow introductions for me to feel comfortable. I am not at all mean just nervous. A volunteer from Lab Rescue brought her lab to play with me and with a proper introduction we were running around playing and I enjoyed every minute of it.
Overall, I would love an active family that has the love and patience to guide me to become a great companion! is that person you?
