Meet Jordan! He is a beautiful and sweet yellow male Labrador Retriever approximately 3 to 4 years old. You may remember poor Jordan was found in a San Bernardino culvert last December by a Good Samaritan, picked up by the local animal shelter, and underwent surgery to repair a broken back leg. Jorden spent two months of rest, recovery, and weight gain in his foster home. He was an excellent patient and is now medically cleared for his “furever” family.
Jordan has a soft coat and gentle demeanor. As he started to heal the friskier, he got. He enjoys “chew toys” and has not destroyed anything he shouldn’t.
Jordan walks well on a leash. He enjoys a gentle game of chase with his foster’s small dog and playfully wrestles with his foster’s Labrador. Jordan is interested in swimming but has not ventured into the pool yet. The veterinarian restricted Jordan’s activities while he was healing. Now he is playful but not a crazy puppy. Jordan even enjoys watching TV and hanging out with his people.
Jordan has a gentle personality and gets along with his foster’s three dogs. Jordan is housebroken and sleeps well through the night. He is easy to train and obeys commands well. He knows “sit,” “wait,” “get in your bed,” “let’s go out,” “no,” and “time for dinner.” He also enjoys car rides. Like any Labrador, his owner will have to be the boss. Jordan can test boundaries but is easily correctable. Jordan is okay with kids, but we do not know about cats. He needs a proper introduction to new dogs.
Because of his surgery, Jordan needs an owner that will commit to his aftercare. The owner will have to go slowly and work up to more vigorous activities. He should be exercised at a gradual pace. His physical activities should be built up over time.
Jordan should have a supportive bed, a raised dish, a joint supplement, and he may have arthritis as he ages. He still holds his leg up if he tires. He could benefit from alternative treatments such as acupuncture and massage.
Jordan is a stunning dog who is dedicated to his people. He is happy, alert, and kind.
Jordan has been neutered, up to date on his vaccines, and microchipped.
