Hello All! Chance here…sharing about myself to find that lucky forever family! I am a 1yr old male Labbie mix that exudes a zest for life suggested by my abundant energy. I was found as a stray roaming in the desert heat when a good Samaritan rescued me and contacted DLRR to intake me so I would be well taken care of until my forever family appeared. Lucky me, right? I have a wonderful personality, love people, get along well with other dogs, but cats…well, I’m not sure. I am reportedly responsible in the house and prefer not to be destructive; I am unsure if I countersurf because I don’t have that opportunity right now. 
I love to go on walks and sometimes my excitement supersedes my good manners, well maybe, most of the time that happens. However, my walking partners tell me I just need a few minutes to release some of my puppy excitement then I walk nicely on the leash. I try not to pull, but oftentimes I forget the rules of walking. Big learning curves! I weigh about 72 pounds and my friends that walk me say I am a bit too lean so I am working on buffing up by getting more chow each meal. Yummy, that makes me happy. Oh and did I mention that yes, of course I love treats, as many as you will dole out, but, I take them very gently. 
True confessions here; I jump when I am really excited and again, once redirected I mind my manners. I am very smart and learn quickly if I may say so myself. I know the commands of sit, easy, down and shake. Since I am a foodie, I will likely be quite trainable because there is little I wouldn’t do for a treat! Just sayin.
My DLRR friends say I will excel in a family that is experienced with rescue pups such as myself. They need to be patient and tolerant of my puppy energy while also being loving so I can come to be my best. A strong leader is in my future, I can tell already. Oh yeah, and they need to commit to my training and be a partner in my training so we build our relationship together. I don’t think that is asking too much. 
If you are interested in meeting me to see if you are as lucky as I am, please text my advocate for a chat.
