Rescue Group: Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project
|Breed:||Shar Pei/Labrador Retriever Mix||Color:||Tan/Yellow/Fawn||Age:||Puppy|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male|
Handsome was rescued from living in a drainage ditch by the woods in the 5th Ward. When found, he had mange and a secondary skin infection, but that has all cleared up now. He is most likely a Shar Pei/Lab blend and at approximately 5 months old (02/2013) he weighs around 15 lbs. He is working towards becoming potty trained, but has been neutered and is up-to-date on his puppy vaccinations.
Handsome is great with and loves children, especially the two year old girl in his foster home. He is a bit dominant with his sibling, but that could be different if he were adopted into a home with other pets that already have a social system in place. He is curious and playful with cats, but does not aim to cause them any harm.
In summary, Handsome is a typical puppy and would fit well into almost any family. Won't you give him a chance to charm your socks off? If you're interested in adopting Handsome, please fill out our adoption application at http://forgottendogs.org/adoption_application.html Thank you!
