Dog | Male | Age: 6 years | Lab Mix | Spayed/Neutered | Up-to-date on vaccinations
Muddy is a very sweet dog. He loves to go for rides in the car. He adapts to your lifestyle - if you get up early, he will too. If you sleep in, so will he. Muddy prefers Keep Away to Fetch, but likes playing with people. He is not destructive in any way. He will bark when people approach the door, but once he has sniffed them, he is fine.
Muddy has never lived with other animals. He has gone to dog day care and has been boarded for a few weeks every year. When he was 1 year-old he had an incident with another dog at daycare and was classified nonsocial. He loves the handlers there and has continued to go to the same facility for daycare and boarding. He has not had any incidents in the last 5 years.
Muddy is neutered and is current on all of his immunizations, including bordetella. He is on an anti-anxiety medication for separation anxiety when needed. He is afraid of loud noises, thunderstorms, and fireworks.
Muddy was not socialized with small children, and has some anxiety around them. His ideal home would be one without small children. He is fine being crated or gated in a different part of the house if small children come to visit. He has not lived with other pets. We have a dog door with a fenced-in yard which he accesses, but he mostly lounges in the house. He enjoys laying on a deck and hanging out with you.
Muddy is a Lab mix originally from Mississippi. He is medium size, trim, and weighs about 70 lbs. His color is Fox Red. We are rehoming him because of changes to our health, relocating to another state, and needing to downsize to a condo. We love him dearly.
