ROVER - Lab mix, 1-2 years, male, 50 lbs. Rover looks like a lab but has a personality of a herding dog. He is sensitive and quick to react to the world around him, and he likes to keep his brain busy. Rover is energetic, playful, curious, and is food motivated; in training class he shines. However, we suspect that a lack of early socialization and exposure means that he is easily overstimulated, so Rover does best in a calm environment. He is not the kind of dog to join you at the dog park but he has a blast running around the yard or going on a hike. Rover would thrive in a quiet house with a big yard where he can run, play, and just be a dog - maybe you have some squirrels to chase? Because he will chase them for you! Unfortunately because of that desire to chase Rover is not able to live with cats, or children. Rover is house trained, crate trained, and is working on his leash skills, and learning fast. He seems to prefer female dogs and may need a slow introduction to his canine friends
