~CL - Mateo (Lab Mix) Large - Male

 I’m a 100-pound 1 yr old Lab/Shepherd mix.  I am neutered ,current on shots, potty trained and know sit, lay, drop and gentle.   I love humans, kitties, playing ball and anything to do with water.  My favorite toys are horse jolly balls and Kong frisbees.  If you have a piece of chicken jerky in one hand, and a ball in the other, I will choose the ball, every time.  My rescue family thinks I’d be an A-list recruit for law enforcement work or an agility rock star!

After being abandoned in the desert, I was saved through the efforts of many and now living large in Northern Arizona.  My rescue family has spent a lot of time teaching me about living in a regular household, learning manners and having boundaries.  We play ball/fetch two or three times a day.  I’ve gone on long (4 mile) walks, but still leash training.  My rescue family believes I was chained up for most of my young life.  I like my collar though; it’s blue and makes me look like Scooby Doo!  Being in my 4’ x 6’ indoor kennel helps calm me down.

My forever home will have very physically active, patient humans who will engage, play, exercise and work with me daily. I don’t know my own strength so a home without seniors or young children I could accidentally hurt or knock over is best. I will respond well to calm assertive energy, consistency and praise as I continue to learn boundaries and manners and outgrow my puppy habits. I will come when I am called and must have plenty of room to run and play in a safe fenced/walled yard with either no other dogs or only a submissive female. I'm ready to play ball, are you??
