  Tuffy, ~ 16 months Male Lab  Mix

Tuffy

Tuffy is a 16 month old yellow Lab mix who was recently returned. He is a wonderfully friendly, joyful dog who developed separation anxiety. He has a lot to offer to the right person who has time for him. He loves long walks, but that's not enough exercise for this busy boy. He LOVES other dogs and it would help a great deal if he had another dog to play with. Here's his original story. He was originally a stray. At that time he had a fractured front left leg that healed on its own. The leg doesn't seem to bother him at all, especially as he loves to run like the wind. He is housebroken and gets along well with cats, though hed be too much for young kittens. He LOVES to play with other dogs. For as hard as he loves to play, he equally adores snuggling with his people. He is a medium to high energy dog daily 45 minute walks thru the woods go a long way to help tire him out and its a great exercise for his leg. The walk is not too long for him - there is nothing that his old injury stops him from doing! When we first got him we took him therapy swimming at Flow Dog in Waltham, MA - he loved it! A physical therapist adopted him and worked on his leg too. He loves any kind of attention, so enjoyed the strengthening ones (playing tug, etc.), but hes not so fond of the stretching ones so I do them while he's asleep he sleeps right thru them. He is still a young dog, so a stay at home person or someone that works shorter hours would be wonderful. He would love children of all ages but tweens and teens might be the best match for him. Tuffy, so named because he was "tuff" enough to go through the ordeal of a broken leg untreated, is a wonderful little guy, always giving back in abundance. Please apply online to express interest in the dog as he is in a foster home. Much thanks to all the folks who have sent in donations to cover his physical therapy expenses.
