Braedan is a very happy dog who loves to be around you and to be petted and scratched. He has a ball playing and makes an adventure with new toys which I don't think he has ever had before. He will make someone a very nice companion. Braedan would like to meet a family that will give him love, attention and training, they will be rewarded by lots of love
Update: Braedan is a sweet, and gentle dog! He is house and crate trained although he doesn't need to be crated. He sleeps all night on his dog bed in his fosters room without a peep. Braedan walks well on an easy walk and doesn't pull. Braedan likes chew toys as well. He gets along with other dogs but doesn't need to live with one. He gets along good with the resident cats. He knows sit, and he comes pretty good when you call him. Braedan is young and will need training and consistency to fine tune his manners.
Overall, he is a really great dog! Braedan is settling in nicely in his foster home. He's great with the resident cats. He also rides very well in the car.
This dog is from a rural area and has not been exposed to traffic, noise, or groups of people. For now we are limiting placement to stand alone, single family homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural area. As we learn more from the dog's time spend in foster care, we will evaluate if placement can be expanded to include a more urban environment.
Braedan is Heartworm, positive, Lab Rescue will pay for Heartworm treatment at one of our authorized vets.
