Yellow Male (Fox Red), 6ish years, 72 LBS
Walking the streets of Wasco minding my business, I got nabbed and sent to the Petatenchery. Got bailed out and ended up in the foothills Northeast of Fresno. I’m able to hang out with my new buds, Derek and Rubi, their story was the same as mine, just a different town. I’ve got a warm crate to sleep in and food twice a day.
There are two people who live here, they keep petting me and tell me how handsome I am. When they are gone, I get to stay in a kennel outside by myself, Derek and Rubi stand watch. I like being in this pack, I’m learning a lot about life here. The people let all of us in the house and I keep watching D&R, I want to please and just want to fit in.
There is a dog savvy cat that lives here, I’ve never been around cats, I want to check her out. We are gradually coming to terms, the people tell me to be good, they have this squirt bottle, all they must do is point it at me. I’ve learned to lay down and be quiet when the people are eating, I know we are going to get a treat when they are finished. I’m a gentle giant Lab, I’m getting good on leash. I like to go for rides in the truck
The routine here is, stay in the house for an hour or two, then outside to go potty. Repeat, then eat dinner and repeat until bedtime. I haven’t had any accidents since I’ve been here. I sleep all night in my crate next to the people’s bed, then wake up, go potty and eat. I spend most of the morning with the manager trainee as he looks busy at his computer. I’m pretty chill and am at the age that I can be mellow most of the day. I need exercise but don’t need to go on long walks, or be in a very active family, I really want to be with my people, I’m great with other dogs but I could be in a one dog family.
I know this situation is temporary, so I need to find my permanent home, I don’t cause a lot of drama, just want to please. I’m just getting broke in, I have a lot of miles yet to go.
