Meet Pilgrim. He was pulled out of the Downey Shelter and his age is estimated to be around 1-2 years old. He weighs about 65-70lbs. This is a really nice dog, but he will definitely need some training. We are going to spell this out for you, this is an untrained Lab puppy. He is in need of lots of training and a strong owner. We are looking for a VERY active and outdoor type of family/person. Someone who runs, hikes, camps etc. that can exercise him to burn off energy. I don't think he will do well in a house with small children. We would like to find somewhere where he is going to be the center of attention for at least the first year in your house. So, older kids please so he can have your full attention and you can have help with training. He is okay with small animals he is just rude, so if you are not on him, he will chase and try to play with anything. If he goes with another dog this should be a young, very active and tolerant dog. He IS going to jump on them, he IS going to tumble them over. He needs some manners. He chews anything he can get his mouth on and if he can jump up, lay down, or walk across it he will. He is learning NO, SIT and DOWN. He is using a dog door and doing his business outside. He is doing much better in the kennel. Its obvious someone got him, did not spend time with him and he grew up unattended, with no guidance, and just made his own rules. Pilgrim is a very nice dog, you will just need time on your hands to train him. He is like a 5 month old puppy in a 70lb 1-2 year old body. (updated 12/15/16)
