This handsome Labrador mix is approximately 3 years young. He is neutered, current with all standard vaccines and on monthly heart worm disease preventative.
Adam West is friendly with all adults and would do best with children 12 years and older because he is still a typical, joyful, excitable Labrador. He is sweet natured and thinks the best thing is to be with his people.
He is completely house trained and working on crate training. He is allowed to stay loose in the house for up to four hours at a time.
Adam West is playful with the foster's dog. He is not ready for the hustle and bustle of a dog park or play group. He is a master fence jumper! A very tall fence and a commitment by his people to be outside with him are a must for this fellow.
He knows sit, is working on other commands and his leash walking skills.
Adam West is a medium-high energy Lab mix who would make a great exercise partner for fitness walking, running and hiking.
An invisible or underground fence is not appropriate for this pooch.
Adam is adoptable in Ohio, IL, IN, MO, MN, WI, MI

Our main website, www.bigfluffydogs.com has more information about us and the rescue process. NOTE TO EMAILERS FROM ADOPT-A-PET: WE DO NOT RESPOND TO EMAIL INQUIRIES WITHOUT AN APPLICATION. WE REGRET WE CANNOT RESPOND TO EVERY EMAIL, BUT UNLESS YOU FILL OUT AN APPLICATION, WE DO NOT KNOW YOU EXIST. All known information about an individual dog is provided in it's listing. We do our best to provide accurate information, but adopters must understand that each home is different and the dog may behave differently in a new home. Dogs are creatures of their environment and you help make the dog what it will be. Homes considering adopting a puppy must be prepared for:1.) Flexible schedules for potty training. Puppies can only "hold it" for one hour per month of age (ex. a 4 month old puppy can only go 4 hours without a potty break).2.) Crate training until the puppy is at least one year old, to prevent chewing on inappropriate things when you can't supervise.3.) Socialization: The more positive and varying experiences as a puppy the better, both in and out of your home.4.) Puppy behavior and life stages are equivalent to a human toddler. It takes at least a full year to have a calmer, well adjusted dog. Patience is required and when your dog's behavior is a positive experience for you and those around you, your patience will be rewarded tenfold, for years to come.Please do not consider adopting a puppy if you have not thoroughly thought through the pros and cons of having one. So many people end up returning them after 3-5 months because they didn't realize the amount of work involved in raising a puppy.Patience, appropriate toys, socialization, and obedience training are all musts. All are time consuming, and can be expensive.All Dogs Require:Supervision with children and obedience training. Adopters that want to have good dogs must be prepared to put the time and effort into training a dog. Any dog requires work and effort, but a well trained, well socialized dog is more than worth the effort put in to get them there.
