Greetings friends and future family! My name is Auggie (#3681) and I am an amazing 80-pound, two-year old male Labrador Retriever. Let me tell you a little bit about myself: I am often called handsome, stoic, strong and very loyal. My first owner made me start my first six months by myself outside. That gave me a bit of a slow start on social skills with other dogs. I can get so excited to play that I come on a little strong, especially with males. (As my little four-legged puppy sister can attest, I am a ladies man.) But now, my confidence is growing, and I am learning new things daily. I know how to sit, stay, down, come, place and even understand some hand signals. I am also potty- and crate-trained!
My foster family is continuing to work with me on my leash skills as I still pull a little. Fetch and swimming are absolutely my favorite activities (as I am a retriever after all!) and I’ll only put down my ball if you promise to start throwing it again soon! After a long day of playing, I love to snuggle up near my humans while they read, cook or do a puzzle as the TV is something I am still adjusting to!
Now that I have experienced what I can call the “dream life” with my foster family, I know exactly what I want in my home – patience, attention and affection!
