Dozer #2

Labrador Retriever

10 years, 2 months
  Male

Annandale, VA

 

Although Dozer is 10 ½ years old, he is an active and healthy mature dog. Dozer is looking for a family experienced with big, energetic dogs where he will be an active family member. His new family should provide him with moderate daily exercise and mental stimulation. Dozer is a pretty good retriever and enjoys fetching his orange retriever dummy. He would do best in a fenced yard (preferably 6 foot) where he could safely run off-leash to fetch. (No invisible fence as he will run through it.) Dozer should never be allowed off-leash in an unfenced area because he has a history of running off, usually after interesting sights, sounds, and smell. At one time, his owner spent time working with him and was able to improve his focus and recall. Given time, patience, bonding, and structured training on a long lead, Dozer can achieve a reliable recall. Dozer absolutely LOVES people! He enjoys attention and being petted. But, he is big and strong and would do best in a home with no little ones or elderly since he might accidentally knock them over. Dozer is good with dogs of all sizes. His owner had a Cairn terrier/Shih Tzu mix that lived inside. While the owner didn’t allow them to play together because of the size difference, they would take leash walks together and did fine. Dozer has lived in a rural area with limited opportunity for socialization with other dogs, so he’s never really had the opportunity to play off-leash with other dogs. Off-leash dog play will be new to him so his new family will need to supervise accordingly. He recently attended an adoption event and did well with meeting the dogs there. Dozer is good with smaller dogs – he tends to ignore them. He is good with larger dogs, too, but will warn them with a quick “grrr” if they charge him or get in his face too long. Never a bite or snap or even a bristle – just a bit of a growl or low bark to say “that’s enough, have a little respect, will ya?!”
