This week we’d like to feature handsome Andy the black lab! Andy – Oregon Humane Society. Look how photogenic this sweet boy is! Andy is just over one year old and weighs a trim 70 pounds. Andy loves to be with his people, earn lots of treats, and nap. In fact, he likes to nap and snuggle as much as he likes to play with his favorite toys! Although Andy came into the shelter system as a stray, we do know a few things about him.
Since arriving at OHS we have discovered that Andy loves car rides and taking long slow walks in the country with his family. In addition to exploring the great outdoors at the speed of sniff, Andy is also a smart cookie who is eager to learn - especially if you have peanut butter. Labs and their tummies! Andy already knows; sit, down, shake, and he gives the cutest high fives.
Andy enjoys having a yard to play in and he would prefer someone who is home most of the day or at least someone willing to give him time and help with his separation anxiety. Andy came from a rural shelter and he may be a quiet country boy at heart as he gets overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of the city, but Andy becomes completely relaxed and goofy in the splendor of nature. Andy LOVES meeting new people, but he can be dog selective and also become conflicted when he sees other dogs while on leash. He would prefer to be the only dog in the home.
Andy has been successfully introduced to calm children and he even lived with a cat while in his foster home. He may get excited around any potential feline friends, so a slow introduction to a dog savvy cat would be best. Andy’s foster mom says that he did great in the home, he is potty trained, and he liked to follow her around and keep her company. He loves to cuddle on the couch and will share your bed if you have room (or even if you don’t).
Does this affectionate young fella seem like he might be the dog for you? If so, please fill out the questionnaire at the bottom of his profile and someone from Oregon Humane will give you a call to chat more about him.
