#8887 Hug Me (Valentine Pups)

Large-size, Male, Baby Labrador Retriever,
Hug Me (Valentine Pups) is up-to-date on his shots and has not yet been neutered. Hug Me (Valentine Pups) is currently being fostered in Charlotte Hall, MD.

Hi, my name is Hug Me aka Brownie and I'm part of the Valentine litter of 9, yes 9! We arrived to OPH on February 7th. I'm a male and guessed to be a Lab possibly Hound / Beagle mix, born around November 21, 2019 (which makes me about 14 weeks old on February 28, 2020). I am on the small side (I was the smallest pup in my litter) - my foster momma says I weigh about 18 lbs right now and thinks I may only get to be about 35-40 lbs. full grown, but we will have to wait and see.

I just moved to a new foster home with no other puppies and while it's a little scary to be away from my siblings, it's pretty awesome! I have my own crate, bed, and toys and get lots of attention! I've started crate training - I take all my meals and special treats in the crate and quiet down to sleep in just a few minutes, sleeping every night from about 9:30 pm - 4:30 am. I have also started my "outside" potty training, "how to walk on a leash" training, and I even went up and down stairs on my own - woo hoo! I'll slowly be introduced to the other dogs in the house, but for now being an only pup is very cool.

My new foster momma says I am very smart, playful, curious, and a very quick learner. I am picking up the routine in the household very well. I enjoy walking & exploring the outdoors on leash, playing inside with my squeaker & chew toys, and will put myself in the crate when I need a nap. I also give the sweetest snuggles and cuddles.

I can't wait to continue my "big boy" training in my permanent home. I'm available to go home with my new family NOW so Apply to adopt me as I'm awfully cute and won't last long!

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.
