11 mo old neutered yellow male, 78 lab
Henry is a sweet, happy, easy going boy. He was returned to his breeder because the family that adopted him as a puppy was going through a divorce and felt they could no longer provide him with a good home. His breeder asked MBLRR to find him a great home. Henry is a very handsome English lab and he is still very much a puppy. Henry is house trained and has very good house manners. He is crate trained and can either sleep in a crate or on a dog bed in his person’s bedroom at night. He knows how to use a doggie door. He does occasionally like to get on the couch to snuggle, but he doesn’t chew on anything inappropriate and he doesn’t counter surf. Henry knows sit, down and stay (sort of), but needs continued reinforcement on those commands, since he’s young and still learning. He comes when called. He’s not bad on a leash, but if he decides to stop and sniff something, it can be tough getting him to move on. His fosters adore him and he keeps them smiling. He loves playing with the hose and we’re sure he’d love the beach. Since he was recently neutered, we haven’t been able to check that out, but it’s our bet he’ll love the water. Henry is good in the car and loves to go for car rides. He adores other dogs and has never met one he doesn’t like. He is fascinated with the foster’s cat and altho he wants to chase her, it’s all in play. He really wants to be close to her. So he would be fine with a dog savvy cat that could keep him chasing desires in check. Henry does jump up in excitement, so although we think he would be fine with kids, they should be age 10 or older. He lived with a teenager in his previous home and did really well. Henry loves his toys and also is interested in retrieving, tho he’s not an avid retriever. Henry loves attention and loves to be loved. He’s a typical adorable lab, but he will need continued training to be the best he can be. As always, we want Henry to go to a home where someone is around most of the time (even after the pandemic is over). And Henry will need an active family who can take him on at least two long walks a day. He would love to have a dog buddy in his new family, but that’s not an absolute requirement as long as he will have doggie playdates on a regular basis.
As of 4:30pm on 7/10, I am no longer taking calls on Henry. The calls have been overwhelming and I will make every effort to return all the calls before that time. Thanks for all the incredible interest in this boy!
