This handsome reddish dog is Lewis, 2-3 years of age. He appears to be a Lab, boxer and hound mix. Just an all American dog. (aren't they the best?)
He came into Lucky Lab Rescue heartworm positive and has been successfully treated.
This guy is self confident, can be dominant and is a protector. He loves to be with you and will give you hugs and kisses. He is snuggly and loving and looks forward to bedtime each night. He would do best in a home where someone is there most of the day. Teenage children and older are recommended as Lewis can be "bossy".
Since he is a protector, he is not recommended for apartment or condo living. Those noises would have him barking to alert you to "danger ahead".
Lewis is very devoted and loyal to his people. He plays nicely with the dogs in his foster home when they are outside. He lives with cats in his foster home and mostly ignores them.
He loves to chew on elk antlers. He is house trained and crate trained, although he prefers NO crate.
Are you an experienced dog owner looking for a training project? Lewis walks ok on lead when wearing a walking harness. He is very treat/food motivated and learns quickly. He loves to go for car rides.
Lewis is neutered, up to date on vaccinations including rabies and is micro-chipped. He is house trained. Lewis is on flea and tick preventative.
