Hello, My name is Luke and I am a lab mix. I am a very handsome boy. My mom says I am a pretty easy going guy who is always happy, I have a good amount of energy and I like to keep busy playing with toys, running around outside with my foster doggy siblings, and going for walks.
I live with small and other large size dogs, I do great with all of them. I will growl at them if they come by me when I am playing with a special toy but other then that I love other dogs. I sleep in a kennel all night long and do really good in there. I am good at going potty outside.
I don't live with any kids but my mom thinks I would do well with them. I used to live outside prior to coming into rescue so I can be a tad on the shy side in new situations but I am quick to warm up. I do like to chew on things so a home that can keep a good close eye on me is a must or I might sneak and grab something off of the counter and try to eat it!
My new home needs to have a fence, I like to chase small animals outside so a fence will keep me safe and secure along with always making sure I am leashed when not in a fenced area. With my prey drive I probably wont do well with kitties.
Mom says I don't realize how big I am because I like to run across the house and jump on their laps to cuddle and give kisses. I am always excited to cuddle! I can never be close enough to my humans.
If you are looking for a affectionate companion who loves to play and cuddle I am your pup!
