A Male Chocolate Lab presently Adopted

Whiskey is a familiar face at Animatch; he passed through our doors about one year ago with a badly injured leg and underwent extensive surgery.  After being placed with a loving family, who did some awesome work with him insofar as his house manners are concerned, they have reluctantly let him come back to Animatch.  The problem is not that they did not love him enough, he is just too much dog for them at this stage of their life.  On arrival, Animatch knew that he needed some one-on-one and he is now with one of our very experienced Foster Moms. 

Truth is, Whiskey loves nothing more than being with his human.  This fellow has some great attributes.  He is not destructive and can be left for a few hours; he need not be crated.  He is great in the car and car rides are a treat for him.  Whiskey has been trained to stay in another room while his family is eating – not an easy accomplishment when dealing with a Lab! He does not get up on furniture and is not too barky unless an errant squirrel is trespassing.  On his wish list would be a home where he would get the opportunity to swim, a home filled with toys (especially stuffies) and one that will play his favorite game, “search” which involves finding hidden treats. 

Well, what’s the problem you ask?  Whiskey is 92 lbs. of solid brawn and much as his indoor manners are very evident; outdoor etiquette and behaviour with other dogs is a whole other story.  Whiskey is quite reactive on leash to anything that moves which makes walking extremely difficult.  Although he does not dislike other dogs, his “take-down” method of play may be all in good fun from his point of view, but it either intimidates other dogs or can start a fight.  At this time, dog parks are out of the question.  Cats are better left off of the menu. Because of his love for human contact, he greets everyone on walks over-enthusiastically.  For this reason, children should be 12 and over.  Obedience training in a group environment is an absolute necessity.  Plenty of training, guidance, exercise, and love will be required for a successful adoption. 

If you are looking for a worthy challenge and have the knowledge and experience to handle Whiskey, you will have an amazing dog in time.  If you would like to adopt Whiskey, please fill in the Adoption Form.

Note:  Only applicants that we feel could be a potential match will be contacted.
