Meet Chase! He’s a seven-month-old male yellow Labrador Retriever who is a love bug. He has the energy to burn and loves long walks, and would make a great running partner. His owner surrendered Chase because he had more youthful, exuberant puppy energy than the family could handle, especially around their small grandchildren.
Chase enjoys playing ball and is a big goofball when playing with other dogs. He’s never met a dog he didn’t like or a human for that matter. Chase is always happy. He’s a real ray of sunshine with his love for life.
Chase is excellent in his crate, and his good manners are improving every day. He is also housebroken, but any dog could have an accident in their new home until their family learns his clues to go and a routine is established.
Chase loves his meals as most Labrador Retrievers do, so his new family should be careful not to leave anything around to tempt Chase into taking it. He also eats fast, and his new family should feed him with a slow feeder or puzzle bowl to slow him down.
Chase has been great with his foster family and hasn’t jumped on people or counters. However, Chase is young, and his new family will need to monitor him and make sure that things are put away and out of his reach. This includes food items, remotes, eyeglasses, and more.
Chase is doing excellent at learning his basic obedience commands. However, his owner must continue with his studies. Chase will need continued leash training and reinforcement of his necessary skills. He’s a smart kid and eager to please, so learning the proper social skills and manners won’t be too difficult for him.
Chase is a young boy and can easily knock over a young child or senior adult. WCLRR will not place Chase in a home with children under ten years old. Chase has not been cat tested, so we cannot recommend him in a house with cats.
Chase has been neutered, up to date on his vaccines, and microchipped.
