Lenny #2935 *UPDATED!*

My name is Lenny (#2935)  I am a beautiful, young, neutered male with lots of energy to keep you entertained.  I appear to be mostly lab, but I’ve got a secret!  I have the cutest tail you will ever see.  I would love to adopt someone who likes to jog every day, go for hikes or long walks and is home most of the day.  I am a very loving and affectionate dog (98% of the time) and really need to have a back yard, so that when I get the zoomies (2% of the time), I can run laps freely!  I am housetrained and know several commands, including sit and down.   I am very food motivated and more likely to follow commands when we are in the house vs. out on walks.  I am crate trained and will go in there on my own if the door is left open during the day or night.  I also love dog toys and kongs.

UPDATE From Lenny’s Foster Mom:  Lenny is a very good and affectionate dog who sometimes gets so excited that he cannot calm himself down.  We have worked on this and he is getting much better.  He is very mouthy when he gets amped up and his new adopters will need to continue with his training for impulse control and reactive behavior.  His energy is controlled by regular, daily exercise and a yard to run in.  He is mouthy and plays hard, so will require a home with no/older (teens) kids.   He is house trained, does well in a crate and loves to snuggle with you.  Scratching of the chest and rubbing his belly and head really helps to calm him down and help him fall asleep in your lap.

Lenny can be dog reactive and therefore a dog reactive training class is also recommended.  Until he goes through further training he should probably not go to a dog park or day care.  He is not reactive to all dogs, but most.  His reaction is to pull on the leash and bark, but he is easily distracted with a treat and now expects a treat when he sees another dog.  Lenny is healthy and hearty, no allergies noted.  Lenny will make a wonderful friend for someone with dog experience that is willing to continue with positive reinforcement and training.
