Slide is a young Labrador Retriever. His birthday is estimated to be in January of 2016. He weighs around 43 pounds.
A volunteer was working a vaccination clinic when she was approached by a woman and her son. They told her about a dog that had been hit by a car and had a badly injured leg. She followed them to the location and picked him up. She named him Slide because she was hoping he would "slide" into a new life effortlessly.
His leg could not be saved but that doesn’t hold him back from being playful and happy. Slide is initially a bit shy when meeting new people. However, don’t get fooled by him, once he is familiar with you he will be showering you with kisses and hugs. He is a very grateful and loving pup and just needs to make sure you will be kind to him first.
Our kennel staff reports that he is keeping his kennel clean, walks well on leash and has an average energy level. He does well with the dogs he has been introduced to at the kennel, too.
Slide is ready to experience the good life of a loved companion pet with his very own forever family. Will it be you who helps Slide live up to his name?
