Hero is a 1 1/2 year old beautiful lab mix located in Chapel Hill, NC. He is full of energy but really wants to please. One of his favorite things to do is run around in the backyard playing with his human friends and toys. He also plays well with other dogs who enjoy rough play. He will need to find ways to burn off his young energy before he will cuddle with you on the couch or, if you let him, your bed.

Hero needs some continued training and reinforcement about proper play with people and leash walking. He will do well with someone who is willing to continue his training and help him to learn his boundaries and someone who is familiar with handling high energy dogs.

He lives with cats and other dogs and does well knowing which ones he can play with and which ones he can't. Hero also lives with children in his foster home and does fine with them but we would recommend older kids. He is interested in dogs that walk by on the leash but he is not aggressive. Slow introductions with other dogs is important.

Hero will do best in a household with a fenced in yard, someone who will give him lots of attention and time to play, someone who is patient and will continue his training, and someone who will give him opportunities to make new dog friends. He is also learning to be a good running partner too.

Hero deserves a stable home with someone who is going to give him the love and security he deserves. Please contact dcpphoto@aol.com if you are interested in adopting Hero.
