My name is Clyde, I'm about the most loving and young at heart 8 year old lab mix you'll meet. I am completely house broken and know basic commands like sit and down. I am absolutely great with other dogs and people, even kids. Although sometimes I think kids toys are mine when they are carrying them around, because of this I would probably do better with older children. I do not like cats and can not be in a home with them. I'm not crate trained and don't need to be as I have really good manners and can be trusted left alone in the house as long as there is no people food in my reach. I'd probably do best in a home with another dog so I don't have to be alone but would be just fine on my own as well. I don't want to run away, you want to do yard work in the front yard, I'm right there with ya and not leaving your sight!!
I have a bit of nervous energy which I like to take out on playing fetch, I need a little structure with it because if not I'd play all day long. I'd be best in a home where I will be exercised. I love going into the mountains and swimming! I am not terrible on a leash but do need some training with it. However I want to learn. My back legs are a little stiff, the vet says more then likely it's lower back pain and eventually I will need to be put on pain meds. All I want in life is someone to love me and be kind to me. I also have a lot of love to give.If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out an online application at www.caws.org.
