Best Guess for Age: 3 years as of 4/17/17
Approximate Weight: 60 lbs
Currently Living at: In DC Area Foster Home
Has Lived with: Dogs
Special Adoption Considerations: Needs to live with a second dog, High Energy, Has some stranger danger issues especially around men- will need an adopter who is willing to work with him on this. Purvis can only be adopted to an experienced dog owner.
Purvis is a sweet 60 pound, crate trained, goofy Lab Mix who is 3 years old. He is very playful, active and has a curious personality and will need mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis. Playing with other dogs is his favorite thing to do. Whether it's out in public, a dog park or a doggy daycare he loves all dogs. Sometimes he needs a slow introduction to puppies because he is practically still a puppy himself but doesn't understand that his size and demeanor can be scary to the little ones! Most of the time after an introduction, he plays great with them (puppies). He enjoys walks, jogs, hikes, swimming, chasing soccer balls and playing in the snow! After a nice walk or playing, Purvis loves to lay on the floor or walks into his crate and chew on a bone while you relax. Sometimes he has a mind of his own when he sees a squirrel or another furry friend.
Purvis knows most of the basic commands and some tricks too:
- Sit - Stay - Come - Leave It - Let Go - Down - Heel - Break(Free) - Off - Away
- Get Busy(Bathroom) - Crate(Bed) - Shake - Roll Over
Purvis will need a committed owner to provide more training and exercise because he is a very smart and energetic dog. He will need a patient and experienced dog owner to remind him who the leader is in the family. He is intelligent, so he will learn to follow your rules quickly but he needs someone with a firm grasp of pack leadership in order to respond positively to training.
Unfortunately, Purvis was not properly socialized as a puppy and is a bit shy and scared in new settings and around new people. He loves everyone but is a big scaredy cat in certain situations and would do really well living in a home that already has another dog to help Purvis learn the ropes of how to be a confident pup.
The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and e-mail it to Elissa at ElissaK@LuckyDogAnimalRescue.org
