Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed : : Male (neutered) : : Adult : : Large
Octavian was in a shelter since November of 2007 (until November of 2008 when BDSC rescued him!)He is a beautiful, solid black dog with the most adorable big brown eyes! When he looks at you your heart will just melt!! He is very sweet but cautious and shy. He isn't used to life outside the shelter and will need some time to adjust. He gets along with my other dogs and totally ignores my cats and kittens. He LOVES walks but doesn't have the best leash manners. He is a short, stocky lab and is very strong. He pulls on his leash but we are working on that. Its only been a few days and we can see an improvement already. He is PERFECT in the house! Octavian is completly housetrained and crate trained. He really is amazing! When you approach him slowly he wags his tail, but holds back. Then he will sniff your hand and give it a little lick. Its the cutest thing, but also sad that he is so cautious. Its almost like he's afaid of doing something wrong and having to go back to the shelter:( He will come out of his shell slowly.
**He needs a family that will love him and have the patience to let him take his time to settle into his new home. Please be committed to working with him to overcome his shyness and fears. He will need work, patience, love, and understanding.**
Octavian is up to date on shots, rabies, has been wormed, flea treated, was heartworm tested negative, and will come with a free first vet visit to a participating vet of your choice. Please consider making Octavian's dreams of a family of his own come true!!!!
