Dutch, Labrador retriever mix
Dutch is a male Labrador retriever mix staying at Big Fluffy Dog Rescue.
Dutch will get along great with other dogs. He is looking for cat-free family. Dutch has mastered his house-training etiquette. He is neutered and vaccinated.
From Dutch's current caretaker:
Dutch is a two-year-old, 61-pound lab mix who came to us as a bedraggled refugee from a shelter in the path of Hurricane Dorian. He is a happy, social dog who loves people. This boy is well-mannered, friendly and just the right amount of active. He appreciates a good walk, but he's not going to vibrate with energy or bounce off the walls. Dutch will cheerfully hang out with you on a sofa. He is good with other dogs who don't want to dominate him, and he appreciates a mellow companion to hang with. He is also fine on his own. Dutch is cat-prejudiced, so he will have to go to a no-cat home.
