#11606 Chambord

Large-size, Male, Adult Labrador Retriever,
Energy Level 5

Energy Level 5 - Needs 3 hours of a mixture off-leash playtime and mental stimulation every day rain or shine.

My name is Chambord but I respond to Charlie. I'm guessed to be a lab mix, around 1.5 years old, and weigh about 59 lbs. My right leg is wonky because I broke it when I was younger and it didn't heal right. So far it doesn't slow me down at all, but that could change in the future. OPH knew I was still worth saving, even with my "disability," so here I am!
Here are some awesome things about me:
- I am housebroken
- I am crate trained
- I know sit, down and stay, but sometimes I need persuasion to do them with a treat
- I am working on the command come
- I love to play with other dogs
- I love the car. I hop right in and I am a great passenger
- I am working on my leash training! This is a work in progress and I will need a family committed to helping me grow
- I enjoy being the neighborhood greeter and saying hi to people and kids. I do come in hot though and can be a little a jumpy

If I'm allowed to, I can contribute to many of the chores around the house too!:
- I will clear your yard of all those pesky squirrels that get in the bird feeder
- I will help you empty the household trashcans by eating the contents
- I am great at prewashing dishes on the counter, before they go into the dishwasher
- I will keep the shrubs pruned
- And I will make sure you keep fit because I need lots of exercise

While I work on continuing to learn manners, I'd do best in a home without young children. If you give me the exercise I need and reinforce the great obedience training I've received, you will have a loving, willing and devoted companion to add to your family. I am looking for my furever home! A family that understands I still have a lot of puppy energy and tendencies and need guidance to be the best dog possible! Apply to adopt me today!

Chambord is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. He is best in a home without small children. Chambord is currently being fostered in Frederick, MD.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
