Meet Loki! Loki is a handsome 10-year-old male English black lab with a glossy black coat surrendered to WCLRR when his family moved and left him with other family members. The extended family could no longer care for Loki and contacted WCLRR. Loki has a bit of age-related vision loss that makes it difficult to see, especially in the dark, and impacts his depth perception.
Loki loves his toys, especially tennis balls and stuffed toys, and carries them around. He likes to play fetch, but he usually finds the ball by smell due to his vision issues. He enjoys his walks, and he also likes to play tug-of-war.
Loki gets along with everyone. He enjoys being with people and happily curls up on a rug beside his foster mom while she watches TV and works. He has been very good with the two male dogs at his foster home, although he does not seek them out to play.
Loki knows a few commands, including sit and shake. He is fully housetrained and has had no accidents in his foster home. He learned to go to the door when he needed to go outside. He doesn’t bark much, although he will bark to let his people know someone is at the door. He walks well on a leash but doesn’t know specific commands like “heel.”
Loki sleeps quietly through the night on a dog bed in his foster mom’s bedroom. He usually wakes up a little before seven and patiently waits for his foster mom to get up and start their day.
Loki’s ideal home would be a calm, quiet place with a secure yard without a pool and someone around most of the time to be with him and give him lots of love and attention. However, Loki’s new family must be mindful of his vision issues and teach him to navigate his new home and yard. Loki would probably be happiest as an only dog, although he would do fine in a home with another dog with a similar temperament and activity level.
Loki is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, and is microchipped.
