Butch: 10 month old male yellow Lab, neutered, 60 lbs

Background: Butch was initially purchased from a breeder in Texas. He was purchased by an older couple wanting to get a young dog. They soon came to realize that they were not up for the energy of a puppy. He was kept outside eight hours a day and slept in the garage at night.

What Butch's Rescue Rep Says: I received a call to come and evaluate a 10 month puppy at the shelter. I met an adorable, friendly and exuberant attention seeking puppy who was full of beans.

Butch has come a long way in a relatively short period of time. He is treat motivated and has a soft mouth which is a big help in training. Butch is housebroken. He sleeps through the night on his dog bed and is adverse to being in the crate, possibly from his previous home that garaged him overnight. Loves to fetch. Has good leash manners. Can get excited when seeing other dogs on walks but just wants to play. Working on proper introductions. Likes to steal items, remotes, shoes, phones and to play keep away. Improving his bounciness and can be a jumper. Can be a bull in a china shop at times. No resource guarding.

Any kids in the home should be 7 and up due to some jumping and excitability. Has prey drive so no cats in the home please. Butch has become a barker af times so would not be good for apartment living or close quarters.

Lab Rescue is looking for an adopter who has experience raising an older puppy and has the time and patience to devote to this deserving boy.

Medical: Butch is neutered, Heartworm negative, updated on vaccs and chipped.

Located In: Los Gatos
