Blackjack – The Lucky Dog
Black male, 5 years, 65 lbs
I’m Blackjack, one of the luckiest dogs there ever was. Be forewarned, I’ll knock you out with my charm and good looks so watch your chips. Win #1 – I was stuck in a backyard with nothing to do, full of energy, so I dug out, often. I didn’t know how dangerous that could be, thankfully I didn’t bust and made it home safe after every excursion. Win #2 – I was surrendered to the defenders of dogs, Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno. Home with a bed, grumpy playmate, allowed in the house. Jackpot #3 – That’s where you come in, I’m a natural and ready for a loving family to adopt me so my luckiness rubs off on you.
I’m five years old and past that puppy stage but still need daily exercise. I love to play fetch and tug, but stuffed animals, well those squeakers are tempting as nickels. I’m super quick to learn, know sit, down, off, shake, and did I mention I’m bilingual. I’ve been on walks on a leash and learned the doggie door by following my grumpy playmate around. With a little more schooling I’ll be that royal flush you’ve been looking for.
Blackjack is fine with other dogs his size and loves to run and play. He’s been introduced to cats and a tortoise and has shown some prey drive so probably best in a home without cats or small animals. Fireworks, loud noises, dog crates, and dog runs cause some anxiety and are best avoided. Blackjack loves to be at your feet, snoozing away until the next walk or game of fetch. He’d probably be best as an only dog where he can devote all his attention to you.
Blackjack is available for adoption through the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno. He is a very sweet boy who is happy, loving and just wants to please and be loved. He is housetrained and knows basic commands. He is a great walking companion, and beyond that, just wants to be with his human friends. He loves his doggy friends and people of all shapes and sizes.
