Clarence and his two brothers Leroy and Eddie were picked up roaming the streets in the city of Winnsboro; we don't know if they were dumped or just belong to owners who did not care enough to feed them and properly housed them. They are sweet dogs flat coat retriever mixed and are all super sweet and laid-back dogs. All three other brothers were covered with mange but they were treated and bathed every day and all that has been long cleared up; their hair is gorgeous thick and shiny you could never tell the these puppies had such a hard beginning. They've had all their worming and vaccinations they are a very healthy and ready for their new homes
Clarence is the big boy out of all of the brothers, he is the tallest and the longest has also the longest ears and the longest hair out of the three brothers. He is black with white tip feet in a little bit of white on his chest. He's a big strong boy and he loves to eat and he usually eats all of his food at mealtime before he stops. He loves attention and he'll just come walk up and touch you and wait for attention and for you to pet him. He's a big sweetheart he really likes to please you and it really hurts his feelings if he scolded. It makes him kind of shy away from you for a few moments like he is sad because his main objective is to make his humans happy. He adores the human touch and attention
We are so thankful there are those kinds of people that work so hard to save the dogs in the South Sadly, there are just as many cold and callous humans who think it is OK to leave puppies to suffer and die. These gorgeous babies little Flat coat Retriever mixes are known for their gentle and loving dispositions, their sweet nature as family dogs, and their intelligence.
Happily, they are now in the care of a wonderful foster home where they are thriving. Now all Clarence needs is a forever home where he can continue to be a happy and loyal member of the family. Will you open your heart to Clarence and give him the love he so deserves?
We owe it to our dogs that the wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue and the first chapter of their new forever lives deserve him. He is ready to slide right into your heart, do you have the requirements of a forever home of his own and endless love to celebrate his special qualities?
ABOUT THE BREED
At first glance, you might think the Flat-Coated Retriever resembles a black or brown Golden Retriever, but no such thing. He's a distinctive breed, his early popularity, which peaked before World War I, was eclipsed by that of the Golden and Labrador Retrievers, but his fans think that's for the best, preferring to keep the secret of his fun-loving yet hard-working nature to themselves.’
This is a breed named for its coat, so let’s begin there. The lustrous, flat-lying coat comes in solid black or liver, with feathering at the legs and tail. Beautiful, yes, but also highly functional: it protects these superb retrievers from harsh weather, icy water, and punishing ground cover. Another breed hallmark is the long head—unique among retrievers—that projects a smart and kindly expression. Flat-Coats will stand just as tall as a Lab, but in silhouette they present a leaner, more elegant look.
Tolerant and friendly, Flat-Coats love everyone, including children and other dogs. Flat-Coats enjoy the company of other dogs and can learn to get along with cats, especially if they're raised with them. They might be a little too fond of pet birds, if you know what we mean.
Flat-Coats are great friends for active older children. They'll play for hours, whether that involves running, swimming, or chasing a ball. They can be overwhelming for toddlers, however, accidentally knocking them over with one whack of that ever-wagging tail.
Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party. Teach your child never to approach any dog while he's sleeping or eating or to try to take the dog's food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
If you like playing fetch (and, especially if you like playing it for hours), you’ll love having a Flat Coat Retriever. Eager, loving, intelligent and playful, these dogs have boundless energy and very few behavior problems.
The Flat-Coat demonstrates stability and a desire to please with a confident, optimistic, and outgoing attitude characterized by a wagging tail. Flat-Coats are often called the "Peter Pan" of retrievers. They generally mature more slowly than other dogs and maintain their puppy like exuberance for years. This playful energy makes them a wonderful and entertaining companion, but it also means extra time and patience when training them. While they are eager to please, Flat-Coats are hams, and they won't hesitate to go for a laugh, even if it means ignoring or disobeying you. In general, however, he's a responsive and sensitive student. A harsh correction will cause him to shut down until you make amends.
The Flat-Coated Retriever is an eternal puppy, brimming with happiness and energy. They adore people and will greet everyone they meet as if that person were their best friend (which makes them lousy guard dogs. After a day of playing with the kids in the back, the Flat-Coated Retriever will turn into a lapdog – don't be surprised if you find him sleeping in bed under the covers. Though this breed is friendly and social and gets along well with other household pets, their extended puppyhood and constant energy can make them a challenge for first time dog owners.
