THANK YOU!!!\t Please visit our website @ https://www.niagaradogrescue.com/ or apply for adoption @ https://niagaradogrescue.com/adoption-application.php Name: Buddy (20211025-02) Weight: 62 pounds Age: approx. 18 months Gender: Male Spay/neuter: yes Breed: lab mix Colour: dark grey/brown Neck Size: 18inches Chest size for harness: 29” / medium Height from top of head: 29” Length from nose to tail: 34” Crate size: large Good With Kids: Yes (Older kids over 8 would be ideal as he is still a puppy at heart and may knock little people over Good With Adults: YES (men and women) Good With Dogs: YES/great with females and good with friendly males Good With Cats: Working on it, but I would say he would be more suited to a home with no cats as most cats would be scared of his puppiness!Housebroken: YES Crate Trained: YES Energy Level: High energy when he first sees you but ask him to sit and he happily obliges or does a roll for a belly rub! Benny also loves cuddle time and would lay at your feet each day! Can be handled/touched YES (Benny loves belly rubs, brush, cuddles). Flight Risk: It is unlikely if he has a large yard to run in and plenty of walks. He also comes when called! He would not do well in a crate all day (an exercise pen may be better). NOTE: All rescues are a flight risk and should be walked with double leash or leash and collar and slip lead just in case ! Should have secure, high enough fencing also or a long line on until he feels at home. Food Aggressive: Never!! He will sit for a treat with the others and I can take his food away from him (he does have one teeny bad habit, he likes to take his bowl and sit on his Kuranda bed and eat). Walks On Leash: He is an absolute dream to walk, he knows how to heel, stop and sit when you stop (without being asked). He knows down and comes when called! Perfect on leash with his custom Martingale. Destructive: He will chew up stuffies if left too long on his own (not recommended) Loves stuffed, frozen kongs, not recommended to have bones or flat chew treats as he gets upset tummy. NO FLAT CHEWS OR CRUMPS TEETH CLEANERS Needs a Yard: YES (he loves to run and play ball) Needs a Home With a Second Dog: No, (he loves people) but he would do well with another dog! He is fine with my pack! Loves to play with them or just hang out! Good with male or female, but he loves the girls more! Can Live in Apartment: NO!! Special Needs: Benny had a bit of a leg issue when he first came but was fine with meds and rest. He visited the vet recently and has a clean bill of health! He seems to run and play now with no issues. From his foster: BENNY (as we call him) or just plain wiggle butt is as friendly and happy as they come. Don’t let that beautiful grey coat fool you though as he is very smart. Brings the ball right back to you and knows his obedience like a rock star. He loves everyone he meets! Doesn’t really bark unless he is happy to see you!!
