Lab Mix

DOB 1/10/2017

Hi! My name is Smiley, and I earned this name from the people at the shelter because I’m super happy all the time, I love everyone and just can’t help but smile a lot, despite the fact that my family never came to claim me, I maintained a positive outlook!

I’m known for not being aggressive at all, just overall playful and loving. I’m a good listener too, so far while in foster care I’ve learned to sit, not jump, the word “no” and I’ve been a good boy and have successfully crate/potty-trained.

Thankfully before my time was out at the shelter SNAP2IT took me in and gave me a safe haven. They were pleasantly surprised to find out that I am healthy. I am a 1-2 year old lab mix who weighs about 45 lbs. I love all people, and great with dogs, even little ones, I met a Chihuahua along the way of my rescue and I was calm and playful with him and I even stood still while he gave me the sniff down. I enjoy playing with cats, however I think I may intimidate some with my playfulness and they run away a lot.

I do great in car rides, and I’m told I’m such a good boy when my people are around, I bark occasionally but not excessively.  I do have a little bit of separation anxiety, since I haven’t had a lot of stability, and I’m still young, I feel safer in my crate when my people are gone, if they leave me out of my crate I get a little nervous and chew.

I am seeking a forever home, with lots of love and stability, I offer lots of fun, happiness and unconditional love!
