Scout: 2-year-old male chocolate Lab 60 pounds neutered

Background: Just another handsome intact male Lab that was found on the loose in the central valley… No one came looking for this hunk at the shelter, and now Lab Rescue has the pleasure of finding him a fabulous new forever home.

What Scout’s Foster says: One fabulous and smart dog! Loves to fetch the ball and toss the stuffed toy around. Full of energy but knows when to crash and relax. Crate-trained, Scout sleeps through the night in quiet bliss. Not yet house-trained – work in progress. Has an awesome deep bark that he will unleash if you don’t toss the ball fast enough. A bit all over the place when on leash; lots of opportunity for improvement walking on leash. Gets along great with other dogs – wants to play, play, play. Can be a jumper when excited. He has the uncanny ability of standing up on his back legs – to examine any human food that night be available One slobbery water drinker – swallows one cup of water, while one quart of water spills out of his mouth as he walks around the kitchen. Does his very best to meet each and every dog at the dog park. Wrassles and plays tug-of-war with our own Lab.

What Scout’s Rescue Rep says: Scout needs a home where he can run and romp and fetch and have lots of fun... and get lots of exercise. Probably too exuberant for a family with young kids. Would do great with another dog… not so good with cats.

Medical Information: Scout is in fine health except for that darn seroma on his right side, for which he is taking some meds to resolve. He is current on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Will be neutered soon.

Scout is located in: Berkeley.

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
