Spencer spent his life on a chain and didn't receive much attention prior to being rescued. Consequently, he needs consistent positive training to help him become his very best. This large, two-year-old, male black Lab mix needs an owner who is confident and dog savvy. Spencer is selective with people and seems to prefer women over men; though there are male volunteers he enjoys being around too. He can be headstrong and reacts negatively if forced beyond his boundaries. He isn't tolerant of other dogs either which may stem from being left defenseless on a chain. Consequently, Spencer should not be around children or other pets. If you are his person, Spencer is an affectionate dog that loves to give bear hugs and be petted. He enjoys stretching his legs outside in our fenced in play area and is especially fond of our pond. Spencer has some rough edges but can be a great dog with more attention and training. If you are up to the challenge, this handsome dog could really use a friend. please go to hsnwga.org to complete an online application to be preapproved.
