Zipper Labrador Retriever Puppy Male
Gages Lake, IL
Zipper is a young 8-12 month old male lab mix (not sure what hes mixed with). He is a medium sized dog at around 30-35 pounds. He is currently being fostered with two other dogs (Newfoundland female and male Newfoundland mix). They get along fine, are fed together, no resource guarding issues with food or toys. Zipper has been around a wide range of people, including babies and has done fine. He likes to be in the same room with his people and can often be found on the couch with his foster mom.Zipper is being introduced to commands. He is housebroken and crate trained. He does bark in his crate initially and then will quiet down once he realizes that it is just part of the routine. It is believed that Zipper either had his throat intentionally slashed or his collar had been on so long that it embedded in his neck. Either way, his wound is healing nicely and is not a permanent issue. Occasionally, he can be a little reserved when meeting new people but once he knows your his buddy, he will be a friend for life.If you are interested in meeting and thinking about adoption, please visit our website, http//www.wagginghearts.org, and submit a completed adoption application.
