Woof - my name is Java. I am a 10 year old Neutered Male Black Labrador Retriever mix. I weigh 70 lbs. I was rescued by Labs and Friends.org from the North Central LA City shelter. I had been dumped at the shelter by my owners who had owned me since a puppy (and I was neutered at the shelter as a young puppy). I lived with teenagers and other dogs. My rescue felt bad for a sweet old guy like me being in a shelter and needing to be in a home. I am now in a foster home and I am loving it. I am living with other dogs and cats, though no cats for me. I am great with the other dogs and I love to run and play with the other dogs. So even though I am 10, I still have a lot of energy in me. I am a calm, sweet boy and I love to be pet. I am 100% housetrained and have not had an accident in the house. I walk great on a leash and I take treats gently from your hand. I love men, women and kids, all people! I love to go on walks. I am also crate-trained and great in the crate. I love to ride in the car and am very calm. I am very sweet and eager to please. I would be great in a home with other dogs or as an only dog if you want to give me all of your love. I also love treats and chewbones and am very treat motivated.
