About Mountaineer

Adoption Fee: $450
Lab / Vizsla
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Mountaineer is a medium-energy boy who loves to play fetch. He is very tennis ball obsessed and his ears perk up immediately once you pick up a tennis ball. He is very well-behaved in his crate. He never has accidents and doesn't make a peep. When he knows it's his turn to go outside, he'll jump up and spin in a circle out of excitement. Mountaineer likes to go on walks with his favorite volunteers and prefers when other dogs join him on the walk. He can be a nervous nelly at first but once he realizes all of his friends are with him, his tail is up and wagging. He will need a forever family who is comfortable handling a dog who is anxious in new situations. He has made a lot of progress since he first got to Lighthouse and will continue to make more in a home setting. Even though he has his shy moments, he also has a very silly, fun side. He is more confident when his dog friends are around. He would love a fully fenced, secure yard that he can play fetch in. He can not live with children or spend time with children. Mountaineer needs an all adult home that is on the quiet side.
