My name is Auggie (#3681). I am a beautiful (if I must say so myself) 2.5-year-old Labrador Retriever. I am a sweet 90-pound athletic pup who LOVES playing fetch and spending time by your side.
I have had some challenges in my short life that have caused me some anxiety. My foster family started treating my anxiety with medication, and I’ve shown some amazing positive improvements. I will most likely need medication long term to manage my anxiety, and will benefit from a home where I can continue my training on relaxing around triggers that are stressful for me.
During the day, I will follow you around and sleep right next to you as you work. I am a Velcro doggy! I would be a great fit for someone who works from home. I am a very smart boy and pick up training quickly. I know basic commands, such as “sit”, “down”, “stay”, and “come”. I do okay on a leash but will need further training before I’m ready to go on walks as I can be triggered by other dogs, bikes, etc. My future home will need a large fenced yard where I can play fetch and get exercise since off leash dog parks may not be an option for me.
My foster family believes I would do well in a home with someone who is patient and willing to spend time on training with me (GBR will assist with this). I would not be a good first dog. Due to my size, my foster family recommends a home with older kids only as I can jump up sometimes.
I really am a very sweet boy and I think I will grow on you quickly. Are you my forever home?
