#12043 Salmon (Shark Transport)

Large-size, Male, Adult Labrador Retriever,
Energy Level 2

Energy Level 2 - Likes to go for short walks but mostly is a lounger. Does not require much interactive play.

Salmon Shark is a 50 lb gentleman. He was found as a stray in SC and recently came to VA looking for a somewhat quieter home while he learns the ropes of becoming a pet. He's warming up to the idea of being a human companion, very cautious yet super sweet.

So far he has been quiet in his crate and feels it is his safe place to rest and eat. He does his business outside. He loves the company of other dogs, any age or sex, and truly enjoys being part of the pack. He is mildly curious of indoor cats, then after a quick sniff coexists comfortably. He is becoming more familiar with a routine and steadily enjoying it.

Salmon Shark is a good natured soul who deserves patience and understanding as he blossoms into the remarkable pet he so wants to be. If you give him your love, in time he will eventually become that best friend you desire.

Salmon (Shark Transport) is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. Salmon (Shark Transport) is currently being fostered in Middletown, VA.

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.
