Watch Dozer swim.
Dozer is a black, neutered male who weighs 79 pounds. He's ten years old and is current on vaccines and is heartworm negative. Dozer is unknown with cats, good with dogs and approved for ages 10 and up. He is a handsome Lab who is active and healthy. And he loves people! He walks great on leash, knows many commands, and likes car rides; however, he needs to be restrained in the car because he likes to drive. This big guy has not had lots of training, so he is looking for that with his new family and is looking for a single family home in the suburbs or a rural area with a solid six foot fence. No invisible fences for this guy and he cannot be taken off leash in open spaces. Dozer needs a patient family who will understand that he has been living outdoors for much of his life, and now as a senior he needs a comfy, loving home with caring humans who will see that he gets the training, love and comfort he requires.
Update from Dozer’s Foster Family - Jan 27, 2017: Dozer is a very friendly guy, but doesn't jump on people. He kind of bounces up and down in a happy/funny way when he is excited. Dozer likes balls and stuffed animals, long walks and like most labs, enjoys any food you want to give him! He is house trained and does not need to be crated, but will check out your countertops if you leave snacks unattended. Dozer strongly believes age is just a number and has more pep in his step than the average 10 year old!
Jan 25, 2017: Dozer is a character. I spent time with him over the weekend, and I couldn't believe how energetic he was. He loves to go for walks and is strong, so must be walked with an Easy Walk harness. He is a happy-go-lucky boy who has no clue of his age. This boy has places to go and says he feels half his age. If you want to meet Dozer and free up a foster home for another needy senior dog at the shelter, this is your chance to gain a walking companion and snuggler on the couch.
Jan 20, 2017: Dozer is a happy go lucky pup. He's very active and playful for his age and is looking for a human he can have fun with. Dozer likes to give kisses and de-stuff the occasional stuffed animal. He enjoys playing outside and requires a fence to make sure he doesn't go out seeking new friends. He walks well on leash and has beautiful eyes! He's a big fan of frozen Peanut Butter Kongs and has good house manners.
Feb 10, 2017: Dozer walks nicely on leash and enjoys long trips around the neighborhood. He doesn't mind his crate at all and will actually go in there to nap throughout the day. Dozer doesn't need to be crated and has no issues being left out unattended, with the exception of checking out what you may have left on the counter. Dozer likes his people and particularly enjoys climbing up on the couch for a snuggle!
