Pet of the Week
Updated: October 2, 2012 2:19PM
Breed: Retriever, Labrador/Mix
Age: 2 years, 1 month
Simon is a large dog excited about life in general. He’s also a handsome guy with a beautiful black velvet coat. Simon doesn’t appear to have had any training in his previous home, so an owner who is committed to providing some of that, along with a crate he can call his own, would put Simon directly on the path to success. Simon gets along well with other dogs who have a similar play style and would prefer an active home where he can get lots of exercise and playtime. He can also relax with the best of them, so a comfy bed to lay on after a good run would be Simon’s idea of Nirvana. If you’ve been looking for a larger breed dog and waiting for summer before adding that companion to your home, the time is now. Simon will have his bags packed in a matter of minutes. Simon needs a home with children that are used to being around larger, active dogs.
