Rex, aka Valentino is not only gorgeous, but is an absolute sweetheart. He meets lots of people and dogs in his foster home and is super friendly with everyone. He lives with his 7 y/o choc lab mix foster brother and doing great. They eat side by side, take treats next to one another and are perfect gentleman.
He was evaluated at a dog park and was great with all dogs large and small. He also meets other dogs nicely on leash. He is low to medium energy and loves to be around his people, but he's also independent enough to be left alone no problem. He loves to lounge and lay in the sun. He knows basic commands and walks well on the leash...rides great in the car and is a quiet and reliable boy when home alone.
He joined Lab Rescuers because his family that adopted him from us nearly 7 years ago had a baby that is just now learning to walk. The unsteadiness of the baby walking towards him for pets and love was making him nervous. It was very hard for them to part with Rex but, they knew it was best for everyone. Rex likes children, but a toddler that is just learning to walk is too much for him. There were lots of small kids running around the park close by him during his evaluation and he paid no attention, he just gets nervous when they run up to him very fast as youngsters tend to do.
Rex is a super easy going sweet boy and is looking for a home of his very own.
