~CL - Mateo (Lab Mix) Large - Male

I’m a 100-pound 2 yr old Lab/Shepherd mix.  I am neutered, current on shots, potty-trained and know sit, down, stay, drop and gentle.   I love humans, kitties, GIRL dogs only, playing ball and anything to do with water.  My favorite toys are horse jolly balls and Kong Frisbees. 

I was abandoned in the desert and picked up only to end up at a high kill shelter.  Thankfully a family took me in and became my advocate.  They have spent a lot of time teaching me about living in a regular household, learning manners and having boundaries.  They even sent me to ZenK9 for three weeks of professional training.  I love to play ball, have gone on long (4 mile) walks and would make a great exercise partner!  My rescue family believes I was chained up for most of my young life so it’s made my leash training a little challenging but I am learning.  I don’t mind my collar though; it’s blue and makes me look like Scooby Doo!

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 blossom.  I know my name and will come when I am called.  I must have plenty of room to run and play in a safe fenced/walled yard with FEMALE dogs only, preferably another well-balanced large breed.
