Prince is a very handsome 71 pound young boy, probably around 2 years old, who looks like a yellow Lab or mix. He has sparkly white teeth and appears healthy and fit, with strong muscles and a thick coat.
He was initially found as stray with a female puppy and was taken to the vet for care and neutering. He would have had to live his life outside in a dog pen in that home, so it was decided he should come into rescue so that he could have a better, more sociable life.
Prince has the typical Lab personality that Lab lovers desire. He is friendly and welcoming. He has the easy going confidence of a family dog. He bonds quickly and highly values his family and friends.
We were told that he was good with his rescuers 3 and 6 year old children though he does tend to jump with enthusiasm and can easily knock over little kids. He would probably love to have some older children in his new home to play with.
He is good in the car and good with other dogs except for crazy puppies and rude dogs. Basically, he enjoys well mannered friends.
Prince is playful but not overly so. He likes to play for a bit and then just hang out. He will need good walks and adventures, like any Lab, but is not a hyper guy by any means.
It seems that Prince has not had any formal training before but he is quite teachable. He may jump up on you in his joy, but backs down easily if you turn your back and let him know that is not acceptable. He is learning to come when called and he sat on command for what was probably the first time. Like most Labs, he wants to please you, just needs to learn some basic manners and commands.
He keeps his kennel clean, waiting until he it taken outside to do his business.
Prince is a very light heartworm positive, which means that he was not given preventative in his prior home. All he needs to do is take a routine preventative each month, like all dogs should do, and the vet said that should all clear up fairly soon. He has already been started on the preventative and feels perfectly fine. He is free to come home with you now and start his happy new life.
If you love the Lab temperament and want a young dog who is past most of the puppy crazies, come meet our handsome Prince!
