  Derek, 1 year Male Lab  Mix
Derek Derek

Derek is a one year old 65 lb. Lab mix who was rescued as a pup along with his brother Dover in TN. His brother, Dover, has some Dane features, but he doesn't. He's more labby. He walks well on a leash and will do anything for a belly rub. - loves females, very affectionate with them, but is afraid of "some" men. He wasn't raised with men so is a bit timid with some guys, although he loved everyone at our Meet and Greet. He acts like a lab in every other way, loves to have things in his mouth, loves to play and play. He is totally housebroken, comes when called, is very inquisitive, will check out everything; even to what’s under the rugs. He loves good belly rubs, can be a “Velcro” dog, must be by you at all times and will need a transition period in his permanent home. He will go into his crate on his own, is great on leash, not a puller. He was raised with another male dog, but in the foster home prefers the female. We would love for him to be an only dog or get adopted with his brother, Dover, as they were inseparable. He is an attention hog in his foster home and is very needy for his own person, but it could be that he misses his brother. History: As a pup his littermates were being given away at a Walmart in TN, so rescue stepped in and rescued the two before they got into the wrong hands. He will be at our Meet and Greet on Sat, 8/9/08 from 1--3 PM at Especially for Pets in Sudbury.
