More detail:

Tall, handsome, 1 year old chocolate labby looking for a furever home.

When I’m not busy playing with my foster brother and our huge assortment of toys, I love to go for casual walks with the foster parents. I tug a little, try to to investigate along the way, but I am working on my leash manners and getting better everyday. Other times you may find me chilling out on the patio or lounging at the foot of the couch…but, I would much rather be out and about, rolling in the grass and short runs.

I just got back from Doggy University training, turns out I’m a pretty good student, but I will need much more study time. Are you a good teacher? I need help with walking, manners, playing well with others (not mean, just big and strong and I need reminders on how to play gently), and my greetings (I can sometimes get a little jumpy when I meet new friends). I would love a big yard, ‘cuz I am full of energy. I love my 4 walks per day and have even done a few miles on the run with my foster mom. Super big fan of car rides…just sayin’.

I love my humans and I am a great kisser but I am not much of a snuggler. I still get a little bummed out when they leave for work, but I am learning to be okay with being alone for a little while. I am pretty fond of sleeping on the couch, but it turns out, I’m not really supposed to…again, still learning.

At night, I sleep in my crate, but I have been allowed to sleep where I want. I know to where to go potty, but I am a very early riser and the foster humans aren’t big fans of that…so, to the crate I go (not my favorite place though)…unless you have a doggy door?!

As any rather awesome labby, I love to be kept busy but sometimes when I get a little bored, I may start to find new things to chew on. If you don’t mind stocking the toys, I wouldn’t mind chewing and playing with those instead.

I am a pup in the rough, I really need a furever home with humans that are patient, labby experienced, willing to help me become the great dog that I know I can become.

All furever humans, please let your family rep know that you cannot live without me. A new year with my new home would be amazing! Your chocolate pal, Hot Choco.
