Oglethorpe

Gender: Male
Breed: Labrador
Secondary Breed: Terrier
Status: Adoptable
A GREAT DOG IN TRAINING:  3 years old / 60 lbs.
 
Hi, my name’s Oglethorpe! I came to Mostly Mutts from animal control & am grateful to be looking for my furever home now. I’m currently in the prison foster/training program offsite and learning so much! Please inquire at 770-272-6888 to find out when I’m available to meet. I’m looking for a dog savvy, confident owner who will be patient & give me the extra time I need to trust them.
 
• OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS: No dogs. I’ve met dogs at MM’s & though I wasn’t aggressive, and I did a play bow, my hair was raised & I was just unsure of what to do next.  / Cats unknown but unlikely / I’m looking for a home with much older children (ages 15+), as I met two children (ages 7 & 11) at Mostly Mutts & I jumped on them & was mouthy. I didn’t show aggression, but I don’t understand my size/strength.  I also have limits to how much petting & affection I want.  Kids should not walk me due to my dislike of other dogs.
 
• PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL: Similar to some cats, I crave physical touch/rubs in limited amounts, & when I’ve had enough, I let you know with a growl, or a look, or a bark, or I mouth the air.  Please leave me wanting more as I get used to more physical touch.  My trainer or the MM director will be happy to talk to you about this. I’m a bit socially awkward – not always knowing how to behave, but I’m working on it, I have a little stubborn streak at times too / My energy level is 6-8 so I’ll need regular exercise!
 
• SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY: I am a proud graduate of the Mostly Mutts University training program, & I know the ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘come’, ‘down’, ‘drop it’, ‘leave it’, & ‘go to your place’ commands as well as loose leash walking, proper door etiquette, and accepting friendly strangers without jumping. I also give my ‘paw’, but that one’s on my terms.  Sometimes if I’m agitated, I will chew on my leash – so perhaps a chain type leash would be best. Please keep a good hold of my leash as I have tried to chase motorcycles. I do not take treats gently, especially when I’m excited, so placing them on the ground is best – I mistook a volunteer’s hand as part of the cheese that she was giving me & bit it while taking the cheese, I’m sorry! / My crate manners are good at Mostly Mutts / I have good potty habits on the shelter schedule unless I drink too much water, so sometimes it needs to be limited or portioned.
 
• LIKES/DISLIKES: I love toys & balls but am possessive of them & don’t like them taken away or touched while I have them. I am working on that with my trainer. / I have some spatial sensitivity & don’t always like hands coming over my head or being touched on my back side, neck, tail & especially my paws.  (I am in training to desensitize these feelings).
 
• MEDICAL: I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped & neutered.
 
I am looking for a family that will be dedicated to my continued training & that will be active with me too!  My adoption fee is $299.00, & I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.
