Sept 5th update on Sweet Walt. Walt has been with Lab Rescue for almost 2 months now and he has gained some weight - 3 good meals a day are helping with that, and he is finishing every morsel. He is a happy boy who always has a wagging tail. He is ready to go for a walk at any time & trots out with a lot of energy (so he may be a little younger than originally thought). He gets along with all the dogs he has met. He likes people and has shown some real affection for children, giving many kisses with his tail wagging a mile a minute. Walt didn't show any interest in the resident cat at the Vet's office, but he hasn't been "officially" cat tested. He has no trouble climbing into the back seat of an SUV and rides quietly. Walt is a kind, gentle, emaciated lab who has found his soft landing with LR. He is a wonderful car companion, takes treats gently and had a spring in his step when going for a walk. With some good groceries and a clean coat, he will be a stunning lab. Please check back on updates about this nice guy as he just went to his foster home.

Foster home update: Walter is a super sweet dog, despite his neglected past. He’s a big boy, or will be when he gains some much needed weight. His ideal weight will be at least 85lb, maybe 90. Walter likes some goodies mixed in with his kibble - chicken, a spoon or 2 of canned food, warm rice, chicken, canned pumpkin, Costco dog roll slices, sardines, and did I say chicken? Once the goodies are gone, he leaves some kibble for a snack later when he knows more goodies will be added. Walter likes to know where his people are and will follow you around the house. He has mild separation anxiety that we’re working on by going out 3-4 times a day for short errands. He barks a couple of times then settles, and when we come back, he’s asleep on his bed or on the cool tile floor. He‘s trustworthy in the house, hasn’t had any accidents, and barks at the door to be let out. And when he barks, his front paws lift off the floor!

He can get out our dog door (sized for +/-60lb dogs), but it’s awkward for him as he’s 75lb and quite tall (a few inches taller than our dog door) and his hips are a bit stiff. He would do well in a home with a large/high dog door or sliders left open, and few or no steps would be ideal too. He might benefit from swimming to build up some muscle, but since we don’t have a pool, we don’t know if he likes water. He does enjoy walks and can easily walk up to a mile, maybe more. We haven’t taken longer walks b/c it’s already in the 90s at 6am this time of year.

He gets along well with his foster brother, but doesn’t really engage in play so he could probably be an only dog or would be fine with another mellowish canine buddy. We have no knowledge about cats or small kids. He rode really well for the drive to his foster home and the vet. We used a ramp for him to climb into and out of a high suv.

Walter is a gem of a dog and will make some lucky family very happy!
