Meet Buster, he was found as a stray on the streets in the high desert where he was picked up and taken to the shelter. He was quickly adopted but he escaped from the yard when he was left there alone for a very long time.
Buster was returned to the shelter who reached out to Lab Rescuers to help him.
Buster loves to be right by your side. The best fit for him is where his humans are home a lot. He is very sweet and is quick to bond. He loves lots of attention and is very affectionate. He is not a back yard dog unless you are out there too.
Buster is well behaved in the house, He is very smart. Buster is very treat motivated and eager to please which makes training him very easy.
Buster walks very well on the leash and is eager to meet all dogs that he spots on his walks. He also loves to go out for a run. He gets excited when he spots a rabbit or squirrel, but walks away with a stern "No". He prefers playing with female dogs (on leash) and is non-reactive to smaller dogs that bark and lunge at him.
He knows sit, stay, down, shake hand and high five. He meets new people very well and does not jump on them. He is still very much a puppy at heart and is learning his manners. He loves massages and is not shy to ask for more. He is very laid back at home and loves to nap.
Buster is a young and strong dog with lots of energy to burn and needs an active dog savvy family that can give him daily exercise.
He will be best as the only dog in the home as he can be unpredictable when it comes to free play with other dogs so only meeting dogs on leash for this boy which he does very well with.
No children; at 78 lbs and with his sometimes quick excited movements, he can inadvertently bump and knock them over.
If you think you might be that special family for Buster or have further questions please let your Home Visit representative know.
