During the COVID scourge of 2020, folks had a lot of indoor time on their hands during quarantine.å%A0Lots of puppies were sold to folks who felt they had enough time to raise them during the Pandemic. Dollar was acquired as an eight week old puppy from a breeder and then joined a home with three toddlers. Although a puppy seemed like a good idea on paper, Dollar's folks dropped the ball on his training.å%A0 At 1.5 years old, Dollar was dropped off at NYCACC and the culture shock was too much for him. He was quickly rerouted to us so that we could give him some breathing room and a chance to be a puppy again.å%A0 At two years old now, Dollar has blossomed beautifully in the country. He is an active, young Yellow Labrador Retriever whose social development is a bit behind the learning curve. He has begun to grasp the basics of obedience training and leash work, so adopters will be able to continue his progress.å%A0 Dollar is a large, strong dog at 70 pounds. As an adolescent working breed, he is high energy and needs a lot of exercise, leadership and discipline to maintain good behavior. Overall, Dollar has a good temperament and friendly personality. He should do well in the active adult home of experienced large breed dog owners, whose active lifestyle will give Dollar the action he needs to thrive.å%A0 Dollar loves the outdoors and would excel in an active home with folks who love to walk or hike. He is a loving companion, and he loves to play. He could easily join a multi-dog home with other playful friendly dogs of similar size and activity level.å%A0 Dollar is house trained and crate trained.å%A0Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during him transition to a new home.å%A0He is in optimal health, and is neutered and up to date on routine vaccinations and health screenings. He has been dewormed, and microchipped.å%A0 If you are interested in Dollar, please write to [email protected] or call/text Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info.å%A0
