Night is a sweet and playful young pup looking for an active family to love! He is completely adorable and still very much a puppy! Night needs someone who will be firm with him and who will immediately enroll him in training. Because he was never trained as a youngster, he is energetic and mouthy. The key to making Night the awesome family member he longs to be is lots of interactive exercise. A walk around the block twice a day won't cut it. He needs to play with other dogs, fetch, run around in a yard, hike, etc.Tire out his body and brain and show him what to do, and he will be THAT dog that everybody talks about. This kid loves to retrieve and is absolutely STUNNING!!!
It took Night a few days to get used to the routine and rules of the house, but once he figured them out, he fit right in. He gets along well with the other dogs in the foster home, and he absolutely loves to snuggle. He barks when he plays but otherwise is quiet.
Night has been fostered in a townhouse and has done great so he is now approved for townhouse living. He does not bark at noises, people outside, etc. He takes treats gently and knows "sit" and "down". He crates easily and does not bark in the crate. He slept in his crate overnight without any accidents.
UPDATE: I took Night on a walk today. He walks relatively well on an EZ Walk harness and responds well to verbal redirection. Night is looking for a family that will consistently reinforce his training and will also help him burn some of his young lab energy. This cutie will thrive in the right home!
