Name:  Bender      Best Guess for Breed:  Lab mix     Best Guess for Age:  3 years as of April 2021      SEX:  male   Approximate Weight:  55 lbs.   Gets Along With:  Bender has done well with dogs.  He passed the shelter cat test, although, we have not seen how he has done living with cats in a home.  He has done well around kids but has not lived with them.   Currently Living at: DC area  foster home.        Special adoption considerations: Bender tested positive for heartworm disease and has been treated on 5/7/21. He is no longer on any kind of exercise restriction and should be kept on monthly heartworm preventatives.  We are happy to talk more in-depth about heartworm disease and treatment during the screening process.   What My Foster Says About Me:   “I’m Bender!! I am curious young fella who loves being in a foster home with another pup and getting lots of treats. My foster mom says that I’m really sweet and gentle. She is also really impressed with my training. I’m not barky and I know several commands - sit, come, no.    You can kiss my forehead and give me hugs. I love it!! It feels so great to feel loved. I also love to get ear scratches and going on sniffy walks with my foster sister. Sometimes I’ll just sit down in the grass and enjoy the fresh air and my newfound freedom.     I can’t wait to find my fur-ever home! I have so much love and I will show you what a good boy I am!”"     Lucky Dog cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken.  All of our dogs are working on their crate training.  TO ADOPT:  The adoption fee for this dog is $475, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment.  If you are interested in adopting, please complete the Adoption Questionnaire online HERE .   Lucky Dog Animal Rescue does our best to provide accurate information about the dogs we have for adoption.
