Meet Custard! He is a three-year-old yellow Dudley Labrador Retriever with a beautiful soft coat. Custard is a gentle boy whose eyes light up, and his tail starts wagging when he’s told he’s a good boy! Custard was surrendered to WCLRR when his owner passed away, and no family members could take him into their home.
Custard is a medium-energy boy who, in his foster’s words, has never had a bad day. He is a happy boy that is always up for a good time! He loves to carry toys around to get someone to chase him and take them away or throw them for him. Custard always wants to be in on whatever is happening in the home. His foster claims that he sleeps with one eye open so he won’t miss anything!
Custard lives with a cat, another lab, and two small dogs, one of which is a senior chihuahua. Custard enjoys playing with the other lab and ignores the cat. One of his favorite activities is getting the chihuahua to play with him. Custard mainly receives snaps and growls from the chihuahua for his efforts. Still, he is determined to win the chihuahua over with his charms!
Custard knows “sit” and is pretty good with fetch. He is treat-motivated and responds very well to “come” if treats are involved. He also has some leash training but will pull when he sees something interesting. His new family should work with him to reinforce his recall and improve leash behavior.
Custard is house-trained and hasn’t had an accident while in his foster home. However, his new family should take him outside frequently until he is used to his new home.
Custard is crate trained and sleeps quietly through the night in his crate in a separate room. He waits patiently for his foster to get up in the morning so they can start their day. His foster has left him in his crate for up to four hours daily with no problem.
Custard’s ideal home would be with an active individual, couple, or family with another dog of a similar energy level. Custard loves being with people and would be happiest if someone was around most of the time to play with him or as company during the workday or while watching television in the evening. Custard is a big boy at around 75 lbs, and he still has some of that puppy energy, so that he would be best in a home without very young children or seniors.
Custard is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.
