My name is Clyde and I’m just about the most loving young-at-heart 8-year old yellow Lab you’ll ever meet! My foster parents are already head-over- heels in love with me! My two favorite things in the world are my humans and fetching tennis balls thrown by my humans. I will fetch as long as you are willing to throw! So you will need to be the responsible one to tell me when it’s time to stop! But playing fetch is a perfect outlet for my energy level and, since I will need to be exercised in some fashion every single day, fetch is a win-win! I am a work-in progress with my leash manners. I tend to pull because I love, love, love all of the wonderful new smells on my walk and just get excited. But I am improving day-by-day and with practice, I know I will become a great walking partner! I am also learning my basic commands and so far I know Sit, Down, and Clyde Come. I’m still working on Stay, Leave It, and Off. I get along great with dogs of all ages and sizes. I will make a great hiking partner because I’m not one to run off once I realize that you are my person. I am a perfect gentleman in the house and have NO separation anxiety whatsoever! I can be trusted so much that my foster parents have chosen not to crate me when they leave! So, while I am not presently “crate-trained”, I am OK with being in the crate. I am well-mannered in the house as I do get on any furniture unless invited. I’m happy to sleep in my dog bed at night in your bedroom (or in your bed if invited). I’m not a really big boy, weighing in at just 60 pounds. Admittedly, I’m a little skinny and my foster mom thinks I could stand to gain about 5 to 8 pounds to be at my optimal weight. But that is an easy fix. To be honest, I’m not the best in the car because I get scared. I whine a bit, but I think it’s because I haven’t had a lot of experience going on trips. So that is an area in which I will need work and most certainly improve with time. But with treats and more and more trips, I will see that going bye-bye is everything good! My perfect home will have a family that allows me to be a participating member. A fenced yard and a basket full of tennis balls is a must! I would love siblings (whether they are dogs, human kids, or both)! I do get excited at times, so maybe having little kids around me might not be the best because I might knock them over by accident. I’ve not been around cats, but I’m sure with proper introduction, we could make it work. I like sticking close to my humans. I am smart, so if you have a dog door, I’ll learn that concept very quickly. I will need continued training in leash work , car rides, and basic commands, but other than that, I am good to go! I promise if you love me, I will love you back unconditionally 100 times over!
