Shadow is a 3yo black lab mix weighing about 60lbs.

Shadow is an eager-to-please and social dog. He’s energetic and loves to go for walks and playing, especially with other dogs! His favorite games are tug-of-war and keepaway. He’s friendly with strangers and children and wants to meet everyone. And that’s usually fine because he doesn’t bark, jump up, or show any signs of aggression!

He’s 100% housetrained and learns boundaries and do’s and don’ts very quickly. He’s very easy to take on walks, tugging very little. If he finds things on the ground, he’ll consider them chew toys, but understands the “leave it” command. When he gets very excited, he’ll try to play with you the way he plays with other dogs, but understands “no” when you don’t like what he’s doing. This makes him a little too rough to play with small children, but great fun for bigger kids.

He’s most active in the morning and the evening and sleeps through the night and most of the day. He doesn’t like being alone, so he’d be happiest having other dogs or people around all day. He loves being outside and exploring, but doesn’t try to escape because the most important thing is being close to his people.

In summary, he’s a great dog who wants a lot of love and he has a lot of love to give!
