We had another lab (who passed last month of old age) and he and Kip were best buddies. We have two cats, three horses, and 5 children ages 5-14 and he is excellent with all of them. We previously lived on a ranch in the country where Tuff could spend most of his days running wild without getting hurt, but have lived in town for the last year. Since the passing of Kip, he has started running away when my kids open the door. He doesn't go far and I always find him quickly, but I am concerned he could get hurt or even stolen as that happens a lot around here.
Tuff is very strong! He doesn't look like it but he is- a child definitely could not take him for a walk without a martingale pincher collar. I can handle him just fine.
He is such a lover and has been an indoor dog since I brought him into my home. He sleeps in the bed with me or next to it every night. He is crate trained but doesn't have to be in a crate. He likes it and often times just lays in there with the door open. He likes to run!!! I take him out to the country daily and let him run about two miles down the dirt roads. He needs it!
We are relocating to help my elderly parents and I'm hoping to find him an excellent home. I will not just let him go to anyone. I love him very much, but I do have great concerns about him being hurt or stolen here or in the new location just because he is a sweet beautiful dog. He is not papered, but he definitely looks full lab in the face.
He goes to the vet regularly and has no health issues. He does have a bad canine tooth- it has been bad since I rescued him but have been told by the vet to leave it alone if it doesn't bother him. It isn't chipped or broken and so far has caused no issues.
