About Congo

“Loyal, steady, active, attractive, fun.  These have all been words that have been said describe me. Hello!  I am Congo and I am a year old Lab Retriever Cross.  Even though I am a bit of a bigger fellow, I love to act like a lap dog.

I am soaking up all the attention I can in this thing called a foster home. I get along great with the household including kids and resident foster bunnies. I am friendly with all people I meet on the street. I am curious about cats and may do well with them with proper introductions. I get pretty excited when I see other dogs on my walks, and again would probably do well with another dog with proper introductions.

I am fully house trained and ask to go outside when I need to. I am fine being left along in the house for a couple hours at a time, and sleep all night without disturbing my foster parents. I am pretty chill in the house, but would like an active home to keep me exercised both mentally and physically. At a minimum a good walk and some play time everyday.

I like to play fetch, but sometimes get too excited that I forget about the ball. I walk well on leash and respond VERY well to treats. I just need a bit of support when I get so excited about these other dogs.

If you are looking for a big, goofy, fun, easy going guy, then I am for you!” – xo, Congo
