Hi! My name is
I have an Adoption Application Pending!
Date of Birth
March 12, 2018
I am a lab cross with what looks like a lion. I have amber eyes, all the better to see you with; floppy ears, all the better to hear food with; long legs, all the better to slowly stalk all situations with and luscious lips, all the better to lick up any food with. I am also quite nosey. I have to know what is going on in the house and in the neighborhood at all times.
I am learning confidence each day. I am learning to go to the bathroom outside by myself, since I would only do it if my foster mom was there. I am also learning to do my business on walks. I walk well on leash and only pull some when I get excited by another animal or children playing. I like children! I get so excited when I see kids playing up and down the street. I want to go join in! Since I am still a little shy, I approach new animals and people with caution. I warm up to small dogs very quickly. I am still afraid of bigger dogs.
I am not a barker. I only bark when scared in the house or when I see that other dog in what I am told is a mirror.
I would love another dog in the house to play with, but please play nice since I am timid and still learning to play. Socialization will be very important in my forever home. I am a lover and not a fighter. I don’t like loud noises like vacuums and kitchen appliances and I don’t like being in crate and will whine and try to get out. But I am good in the house and mostly just lay down or look out the window when left alone. I would do best in a detached home as I’m still learning not to sing the blues when alone.
If you are looking for a goofy, loving, nosey, big lipped, lion look-a-like, then I would love to meet you! I hope to hear from you soon!” – xo, Darlington
