Luke is a caramel colored, 4 year old 50 lb Labrador/American Foxhound mix, with a cute freckled snout and the most expressive eyes. A loving boy, he adores his people and wiggles his whole body excitedly in greeting. This boy’s favorite place is wherever you are so he prefers to sleep in the room with you, whether that be in a doggie bed or – if you happen to like to share – your bed. Hikes and long walks are some of his favorite things so an owner who likes to be active with their dog would be great for him. He’s happy having a snooze or playing in the house or yard but is a dog who needs plenty of physical exercise.
Intelligent and eager to please, Luke LOVES learning. He already knows sit, stay, paw, high-five, wave, roll over and even knows how to wind through legs, spin and jump! He can sometimes be anxious and uncertain around new people so while he is incredibly loving and affectionate, he needs owners who will take their time helping him assimilate into a new home. An adult home or a home with older children would be better for managing this issue. Luke can sometimes be possessive with treats and toys so would need some helpful sharing reminders from his new owners if he’s in a home with another dog. He would also be fine as the solo dog in a home as Luke is always about the people!
Luke is a smart, loyal, and loving guy who is hoping to finally settle in a forever home!
