REQUEST TO MEET ARGUS HERE!

Looking for a LOVE dog? I am the cuddliest 65 pound lap dog you will ever meet! Just look at me! Have you ever seen a more dapper dog? I am always wearing my smart, black and white tuxedo, and, of course, a big smile on my face.
I am a young (2 year old), very healthy neutered male Labrador Retriever / American Pitbull Terrier mix. I am a very smart boy, and also very obedient. I have had lots of training, and have shown that I can learn complicated stuff very quickly. I love humans so much. I am great with strangers and kids too, but because I am very attached to my food and toys, small children might not be the best choice for me as housemates.
I'm a pretty easy-to-care-for dog. I don't need a ton of exercise, but will be happy to accompany you on a walk. I like to play, but not excessively. I'm AOK to spend an afternoon on the couch with you. I am warm and snuggly, and a great listener.
I am also a really good watch dog. I like to keep an eye on things for you, and can be counted on to let you know if there is a visitor at the door. My size and appearance is more than enough to keep prowlers away! I love to spend a few hours each day in the window watching birds and other critters in the yard. I am also a 'Kong-A-Holic'… give me my Kong and I am in Heaven!
So this leads me to the reason why I am looking for a new home… His name is Tuk, and he is my dog nemesis. Tuk and I live in the same home, and we just don't see eye to eye. He's a big Boxer, and I am afraid that he is going to steal my food, toys and Kongs. They are very precious to me, and me guarding my stuff has led to more than a few altercations between us. This has made for a very stressful home environment. Our owners have to keep us separated all day and night, and they worry about us constantly.
As much as it breaks their hearts, they feel that it would be best to find me a loving home where I am the only pet. So that I don't have to worry about any pet or person trying to take my stuff. I am such a good boy, so well behaved, calm and easy-going - but with this one issue that is easily solved by being the only pet.
Because of my 'resource guarding', small kids might not be a good fit - just to be on the safe side. I would be just fine with adults only - or a family with kids who are older than 10.
I would love to have a securely fenced yard to patrol, and owners with lots of time to spend with me.
Please offer me the loving home I need and deserve today. I can't wait to show you what a really smart, devoted and loving dog I am!
Love and licks,
