What is there not to love about the Labrador breed?
They have the most -
- Adorable cheeky grin
- Water-loving fun-seeking nature
- Ridiculous levels of happiness
- Loving looks in their eyes that make you feel you are the centre of the universe
- Whole-body wags of happiness
And our beautiful Geoffrey embodies all of these great attributes and then some!
Darling Geoffrey is your typical Labrador pup, full of beans and full of love and he is desperate to find a fun-loving family who will take him on regular adventures and let him be a fully-fledged family member
Geoffrey has his basic manners down pat - sit, stay, wait, etc, he is also toilet trained, fantastic on lead and he loves LOVEEESSS car rides!
Geoffrey has grown up with a cat who was his best friend however since being in care he hasn't lived with a cat so we can not guarantee how he is around felines. Geoffrey has also grown up around kids, but he needs to live with older children who will help set boundaries for him as he is a big goofy boy and too bouncy for youngsters. He needs a home with kids over the age of 10.
Geoffrey will not suit full-time workers and being left alone for long periods. Geoffrey has lived a life of being spoilt, so he tends to think he is a human baby and is only just learning how to be alone. Geoffrey's new family must take him to obedience training, this is not negotiable. Geoffrey is so smart and has fantastic foundations in place, but he needs a new family who will follow through with his training and implement strong structure, rules and guidance so he doesn't get confused and bored in his new home.
Due to Geoffrey's dependence on company, he needs to go to a home with another dog. He would love the company of a trained female dog who can show him the ropes and who won't get annoyed by his 'puppyness'. He is very fun-loving and loves to wrestle, and really needs a best buddy who he can look to for guidance.
If you are after a puppy who will fill your hearts with love, who will get you out of the house to have adventures, who will want to snuggle with you at every opportunity and who you can take to dog training then please consider applying for our darling Geoffrey.
- If you have kids they must be over 10 years of age
- You must have another well trained friendly dog
- You must have a good understanding of dog training and behaviour, he won't suit new dog owners.
