Facts about Nate

NATE is a 3 year old neutered chocolate male Lab who weighs 67 pounds. He is blind and the shelter vet thinks it may be due to trauma but no other neurological affects were observed by the vet. Nate appears healthy and happy otherwise. Nate likes to be close to people, which is understandable. He is good with other dogs and recently walked in a parade with other dogs, lots of people, and typical parade noise and did great! Cats are unknown. Nate is from the country and is blind. He has no exposure to big cities. Placement is limited to single family stand alone homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural area. We have no history of Nate living with children so he is approved for ages 10+.

Update: Nate is a cutie pie with soft fur and he is just loving the attention of his foster parents. He leans on you for petting and would crawl right into your lap dog if you let him. He has been in his foster home two days and is learning his way around. When he hears the food he finds his way to his dish pretty quickly! He has made huge progress learning to get in and out of the house to the yard. When he feels and smells the yard air he sticks his head out the door and front paws on the top step. After only a few times down the stairs, he now has no difficulty navigating up the steps and back into the house. He really likes to stretch his legs in the yard and he jogs around on the grass. Indoors is a bit more of a maze but he doesn't get discouraged and it won't be too long before he knows his way about. He does prefer to hang around his foster parents and will follow from room to room. If his fosters are watching TV he will try to convince them that he is a lap dog but then he settles on the floor and catches a snooze. He spent some time in the crate when his fosters were out and was fine. Nate has proven very trustworthy so far and his fosters will be starting some trials leaving him out while they are away. Nate has been great with the other lab in the home and has met the cat with no problem.

From the transporter: Nate is a gorgeous hunk! He was very sweet and rode quietly in the crate the entire trip. Due to his blindness, he needed guiding through new territory (doors, curbs, furniture, into the car, etc.) but adjusted quickly. What a beautiful and sweet dog!
