How can you resist those stunning eyes?! 💙🤎 Meet Bambi!! Bambi is a 6-month-old Labrador Retriever mix and currently weighs about 35 lbs. He is very playful and outgoing, enjoying every moment. Bambi’s favorite thing to do during the day is play with toys. He loves the soft and squeaky ones a little too much, but enjoys chasing toys throughout his foster family’s fenced-in backyard or chewing on a bone or antler. Bambi is hoping to get a toy basket in his forever home so he never has to worry about another fun toy. He is also very affectionate and is not shy about demanding belly rubs. In fact, Bambi will run over to you simply to roll over and ask for his belly rubs. Other than toys and belly rubs, Bambi also loves to play with other dogs and would love to go home with dogs, cats, or children. He is super excited to meet his forever family, will it be yours?
