Hi! My name is Baloo, and I came from northern Saskatchewan. I am a medium sized boy who is very friendly, but I get stressed easily when I am crated or someone pulls unexpectedly on my leash. I was chained up in my former life, and I am still learning to trust humans, as well as to adapt to the noises and smells of an urban centre. Everything is so new to me that I hope to find someone who is patient and understands that I will need some time to adapt to this new life, including that I may sometimes try to run when I am startled by something unfamiliar.
As with most Labradors, I have a lot of energy, and one of my favorite things is to go on walks with the volunteers down by the river, so I am hoping for a family that would also take me for walks in the mountains or go camping, or anything in nature! I am friendly to all people, but because I can startle easily, I might be best in a home with older children so I don't accidentally knock anyone over.😉 I hope that once I find my forever family and I settle into a calm home environment, I can begin to learn what "playing" is, and see what it is like to have a real "home".
I get along with most of the other dogs at the rescue, so I would enjoy having a friend in my new home who can show me what "normal" is. If you think you might like to have me in your family, please fill in an application to come meet me. 🐾
- Paws and Kisses, Baloo
