The Fall beauty!

Hi guys! My name is October. I am a 4-year-old, neutered male, Lab Mix weighing around 63 lbs. I am here because The Animal Pad rescued me from Ensenada. I was skinny and had a lot of mange when I was rescued but now, I have a beautiful healthy black coat and healthy weight! I am crate, house, and bathroom trained! I recently graduated from a training program where I worked through my leash reactivity when seeing other dogs and now have some pretty stellar manners although I do need to keep working hard to maintain them. I would love to find someone who will continue to bring me out on adventures so I can keep up with practicing my manners. 

Here’s a little bit about me! I am super sweet, goofy, and playful! I love to play and jump around, but I also love to sleep and spread myself out on the floor. Although… when it’s play time, I’m all in. I am very independent, I stay physically near/around you, but I’ll play and explore on my own. I will come to check in with you occasionally or when you call me. My favorites are tennis balls and squeaky toys, as well as lick mats with yogurt or peanut butter 😊 I am very smart, I learn quickly and respond well to commands like come and sit. I’m very unique in the way that I have a personality and playfulness of a young pupper but also the manners of a grown up pup. I haven’t met cats but I love kids! Big kids may be best though since I tend to jump when I get excited. My favorite things to do are fetch, sleep, and sunbathe. Since I am a very special guy, looking for a very special home, I would love to do a trial period first, before adoption.

I definitely need continued training in order not slip back into reactive habits, which come from overstimulation, not aggression. I would do best in a home as the only pet but should definitely go on plenty of field trips to stay well socialized. I need someone willing to set firm boundaries and stay active and social. I am an AWESOME dog when my training is maintained. I am so smart, eager to please, playful, and so loving. I would love a yard to run around and play in as I continue to work on my training.

My adoption fee is $200 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/
