I'm an 8 1/2 year old boy named Manchester but everyone calls me Manny. I may have a touch of grey but I am still young at heart and quite active. I was surrendered when my owner count no longer care for me and I have been enjoying my time with my foster but I'm ready to find a family I can call my own.
I love going for walks and I'm actually pretty good on leash. I do pull in excitement when I see other dogs and perhaps my new family can help me with that. I'm very smart and know lots of commands and I'm always curious to learn more. I love to play fetch and generally stay close by. I LOVE going to the cottage and riding in trucks and boat rides, don't get me started!! In the house I like to lounge around on the couch or lay at your feet while you work. I like interactive games to keep my mind occupied like the snuffle mat and my Kong. I've had the luxury of my people being home a lot and I would love to continue in my new home.
Lab Rescue promised to find me that special family who will invest in my future by understanding my quirks and how to manage them. I'm not purposely destructive or mean in any way. I have anxiety that causes me to do repetitive things throughout the day and this leaves many humans confused. Maybe it was something in my past that caused this, we don't know, but the good news is we have techniques to teach my new family to help me through it. Mind games, distraction training and consistent exercise are all helpful. I also take medication that may need to continue. Lab Rescue will also happily set my new family up with the wonderful behaviourist who has been working with me.
I would like a quiet home with no other furkids and all adults with not a lot of coming and going throughout the day. I'm a super love bug and love to snuggle in bed and be reassured that life is all good. If you have deep compassion, resilience and determination you could be my perfect match. My progress will come in small increments and I need the perfect family who be dedicated to my journey to help me succeed. Are you that family?
