Update:: Theo has been through the proverbial wringer: after he had mast cells removed, he had to go through heartworm treatment, but he stayed playful, lovable and pretty goofy. He has never met a person or dog that he doesn't like. He has fostered about a dozen other dogs and desperately craves what they now have: a yard to play in, long walks in the woods, someone to throw the ball or jolly bone, and who will cuddle with him afterwards. Like most younger labs, Theo is very forthright: if he gets enough exercise and attention, he is a gem; if not, he will search for something new that catches his interest and/or use his voice to tell you he is bored. If he gets the attention and exercise, he would be fine in the city or in a townhome.
Update: THEO is a boy’s boy. At seven, this chocolab, is a rough and tumble sort of guy. He loves his toys- especially retrieving the ball and playing tug - and will crash at your feet when he wears down. He loves dogs as much as he loves people and has hosted a dozen since he came to us. And why not be joyful now? He has had mast cell tumors removed and had his heartworm treated and he is rarin’ to go out and enjoy life. While on house (ar)rest, he did get a little chunky so he would love a runner or at least an adventuresome sort so he can shed a few pounds. If you have it in your heart to share this guy’s second chapter with him, please contact your AC.
