Humane Society Pet Report: 2.16.11

This very friendly chocolate lab mix just can’t seem to catch a break. He has been adopted from the shelter twice now, and returned — through no fault of his own. Both adopters described him as extremely affectionate, and said he loves to be cuddled and have his tummy rubbed.

He is also a great car traveler and a good sleeper; rarely barks; likes kids; plays fetch; and loves to go to the beach and for walks. Indy is a high-energy boy, but is very directable, and anxious to learn. He has already learned to sit, shake, stay, lay down, and is crate trained.

One of his previous owners said he would be a great companion for a jogger or hiker. Both of the owners said that he was a great dog — one owner just didn’t have enough time for him and said that bringing him back was “a very hard decision.” The other man loved him dearly, but had to go overseas with the service.

   We are hoping it is time for this good dog to find his permanent home and a best friend who can love him forever. It is just too hard on him to think he has a wonderful home, only to end up back at the shelter …
