FILBERT NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!
Name: FILBERT Breed: BLACK LAB MIX
Approximate Age:14 WEEKS SEX: MALE
Approximate Weight: 13 LBS.
Has Lived With: Other Dogs
Currently Living at: DC FOSTER
Special adoption considerations: Young puppy, frequent potty breaks and socialization needed, additional vaccinations needed.
Hello humans! My name is Filbert and I am a super cute Black Lab Mix puppy looking for my perfect forever family!!! I am ready to come to DC and find my furever homes!
I love to play and have lots of puppy wrestle sessions! I want to be home and be able to go rompin' around my very own yard jumpin' in piles of snow this winter. My dream would be long walks, doggy parks, peanut butter kongs and a warm bed to call all mine! The shelter says I am a typical Black lab puppy -- bubbly, bouncy, playful and love my naps and cuddles!
Since I am soo young, I will be a big responsibility and take a lot of time, lookin' after and training. I am a blank slate ready to be trained and molded into your perfect pup! I will probably be good with kids and cats since I am just a puppy but I have never lived with them officially so if you have a feline friend my lucky dog friends can test me out!
I'm just a little pup so I'll need lots of looking after. I'm sorry to say that if you work 9-5 away from home you aren't a good fit for me unless you can show documentation of a multiple times a day dog walker.
So what in the name of milkbones are you waiting for....fill out the application and send it to my adoption coordinator! I am trying to wait patiently...wiggle...wiggle...wiggle!
FOSTER UPDATE: Filbert is great with kids and dogs. He's a very sweet and confident puppy. He's been doing a good job on house training and he's quiet when crated. He sleeps through the night!! He will make a wonderful addition to any family!!
Filbert is not old enough to have had all vaccines. It will be your responsibility, as the adopter, to ensure that the remaining puppy vaccines are given at the appropriate time. Please also keep in mind that, until your puppy is fully vaccinated, it is at greater risk for illness than an adult dog.
Due to a puppy's need for attention and frequent bathroom excursions, we do not adopt dogs under 5 months of age to homes where no one is home during the day. This means no 9-5ers, unless you commit to hiring a dog walker to come multiple times a day.
Like all puppies, Filbert will need to work on housetraining and will also need to go to obedience school to grow into a well-socialized dog!
The adoption fee for this dog is $400, which includes the cost of routine vetting and transport from the shelter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Ali at Alip@luckydoganimalrescue.org!
