8-Ball 2-Year Old Male Labrador, Black, 54 Pounds Not yet neutered

Background: 8-Ball came from a training facility in Southern California whose business shuttered during the pandemic. 8-Ball was taken in by a fellow boarding facility with plans to continue his training but became busy themselves as their own business began to expand. They reached out to rescue to find him a forever home.

What 8-Ball's Rescue Rep Says: Meeting 8-Ball is always an enjoyable experience. He is full of energy and drive, loves the ball, and can play endlessly. His batteries recharge quickly but he is also able to remain calm e.g. stood quietly in the waiting room of the vet's office along with other small and large dogs and enjoys car rides. Best with older children not because he dislikes small children, but only because he may unintentionally knock a little one over. Requires an active home where he can go on hikes and adventures. Needs someone who can keep up with him and include him as part of the family. He is great with people and hasn't been around very many other dogs; the facility reports he pretty much ignores them or is indifferent. He has a high drive and is most interested in toys! Unsure how he is with cats so a home without them is probably best.

Medical: 8-Ball received his DHPP and Rabies Vaccines, has been heartworm tested, and is microchipped. He is on flea, tick, and heartworm preventatives and will be neutered.

Located in: San Jose.

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.
