Hi Friends,

 

Champ here!  I'm one of those fancy Labs with a silver coat, I know, I know, some might say I'm not a Lab according to the "Official Lab Club" but I'm just a Lab in disguise.  I'm a year and a half old and I need a new family because my owner is ill.  I'm told Lab Rescue will find me a great family who can keep up with my love of life.

 

Let me start by saying I'm the best at fetch....probably how I got my name... but I add a twist!  I know exactly where you're going to throw the ball before you do, so maybe I'm a mind reader too! Let's not insult my intelligence with any of those fake throws either! I'm far too smart for that.  Here's my twist on the game. When I bring the ball back I will not give you the ball right away. Getting the ball back becomes a game of wits.  You have to be patient and earn it.  Ignore me while I push the ball into your leg. Ignore me when I back up and give you my goofy stare, say nothing, just wait.  When I believe you're ready I'll drop the ball and progressively back up.  That's your cue to start the whole game all over again.

 

Once I get my sillies out with exercise you will see I do have some understanding of basic commands like sit and stay and I look right at you when you speak.  My leash skills need help. My foster is teaching me how to walk on a special harness that helps remind me not to pull.  Its a work in progress but I'm very food motivated.  If you bring the treats and the patience, I'm sure we can work something out. Just remind me to "gentle" before giving me the treat.  Sometimes I get too excited and come in a little hot.

 

I'm super excited to meet new people and other dogs and I may jump up for a hello hug.  I'm told this can be a bit too forward for some people so I'm working on it.

 

I had lots of friends in my old life and would like to make new ones once I settle but I would like to be the only dog in my new home. I'm not a candidate to live with a cat, whatever that is.  Dog savvy, older children would beI think dog savvy, older children would be ok as long as they're respectful of my needs.

 

I have lots of energy that would be best handled by an experienced Lab pawrent who won't give up when I out smart them at my games.  Someone who will dedicate time to exercise and continue my training would be perfect.  So I leave you with these questions...what makes a champion? Is it all natural or is it positive influences and lots of practice?

 

If you think you can love a Lab like me, apply today!

 

 

Love Champ
