LOGAN -- ~1.5 -Year-Old Male Chocolate Labrador 75-lbs Neutered

Background: We were alerted by the shelter regarding young Logan. He was recently returned after a 3-month failed adoption; the family reported that Logan guarded his space when visitors came to the home. The shelter also reported that Logan was returned in a different state than that of when he was adopted out a few months prior. He was friendly yet timid when adopted and came back scared and flinchy.

What Logan's Foster Says:Logan is truly a big chocolate teddy bear. In the three weeks since he joined our family, Logan has blossomed into a playful and affectionate companion. Initially hesitant to leave the car, he now eagerly engages with us and our dogs, showcasing a newfound zest for life.

Logan's love for touch and petting is evident and he adores playing with our two labs, learning the art of toy entertainment along the way. While he has not met a cat directly, his curious gaze through the window suggests a potential prey drive. However, there is no sign of resource guarding, be it with food, us, or our dogs.

Though initially shy when meeting new people solo, Logan quickly warms up, allowing for delightful petting sessions. Interestingly, when surrounded by our dogs, his nervousness fades away in the company of strangers. Logan has proven to be a champ during grooming sessions, happily enduring baths, nail trims, and ear cleanings.

His leash manners are better when alone, occasionally pulling when accompanied by our dogs. Logan's car etiquette, on the other hand, is impeccable—settling in for the ride without a fuss. While still working on housebreaking, Logan is communicative about his needs, making progress in understanding when it's time to go outside.

A willing crate dweller, Logan prefers an open door, expressing himself with a bark if confined. When night falls, he transforms into a peaceful sleeper, resting soundly on a dog bed beside ours. Logan is more than a pet; he's a bundle of love and potential waiting for a family to continue his journey of transformation. Adopt Logan and let the adventure of a lifetime begin.

What Logan's Rescue Rep Says: Initially meeting Logan at the shelter, we found a very timid and skittish young dog. His tail was tucked the majority of the time we visited, but did prop up after about 30 minutes. He did well with other dogs he was introduced to at the shelter, along with meeting my dogs and living with the foster's dogs. Logan will require slow and steady introductions to new people and will benefit from having another friendly canine sibiling or siblings in his forever home that will be a good role model and help with his socialization. Not a good fit for a family with children due to his skittishness. No idea how Logan would be with cats. He had a meet and greet with a potential adopter who had experience with a skittish dog and also had other dogs in the home. While Logan warmed up to the humans (with treats), he wanted to play and did really well with the other two dogs. Unfortunately, the third dog was not a fan of Logan's.

Medical: Logan appears to be in good health, is neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped.

Currently located in: St. Helena
