Hi! My OPH name is Aladdin but my foster family calls me Scooby (or Scooby Doo). I came to OPH from down South and am looking to find my forever family. I love being part of a family and I'm sweet to all of my family members. I also like strangers after I am introduced to them. It only takes one introduction and then I remember them and am always happy to see them. I'm very smart and medium to high energy depending on what we are doing. I love walks on quiet roads but can get a bit overwhelmed and barky if on crowded streets. I'm about 2 years old so my house manners are pretty darn near perfect. I weigh about 55 lbs and listed as a lab/boxer mix. I also have a little bit of herder in my as I like to keep an eye on all my family when out and about and I like it best when we all stay together. I'm housebroken, of course, and crate trained. I'm very quiet in my crate. I know many commands and love to train; so far I know sit, wait, down, hup up, jump on, quiet, off, touch, and I can shake with either paw. I'm up for whatever you want to teach me!
I'm good with other dogs I know and like to chase and wrestle with them, I prefer dogs my size, but any playful dog will do. I'm kind of a pain to tiny dogs because I can't understand why they don't want to play. I also love to retrieve. My play style is noisy so I would do best with dogs that I know and small play groups. I'm not so much a water dog so my paws stay nice and clean, and I have short, sleek fur. My foster family thinks I would do best with a fenced back yard and in a more rural or suburban setting.
My foster family thinks I will be a great pet for a family with children 9-10 or older.

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.
