Adopted: Grady, an 11 month old Male Black Labrador, has found his forever home.
Here is a Bio from HISHER foster family……..
"Grady (although he doesn't answer to that name, he is responding to being called 'Skippy') is a sweet and adorable one-year old black Labrador. He was hit by a car and needed an FHO. Six weeks after his surgery, he is healing nicely, and his personality is just now starting to come out.
Grady is gentle and very lovable. He is friendly and curious about everything. He loves petting and attention and likes to snuggle. He can be a little timid at first with new adults, but quickly loses that. He is learning to play with toys and even a little fetch. He absolutely loves kids, gets super excited, but not out of control. He is still a puppy, but does not seem to chew on things, other than what has been given to him. He does like to gather things that are left unattended around the house and store them is his “area”. He makes a goofy face when he is scolded, but takes it well.
Grady is still working on his basic commands and is eager to learn. In the last week, as his strength and energy have improved, we have started the learning process. He has learned “come”, “down” and “bed”. We have not pushed “sit” or even “wait” as he still needs to build some strength in his hind areas. He is crate trained, but in the last two weeks, has gradually been given free rein in the house. He is potty trained and has had zero accidents. He has learned to use the doggy door and loves the independence. He walks superbly on the leash, without pulling, staying next to you the entire time.
Grady has done well with other dogs, including our four-year old black lab. He has benefited from having a more mature dog around to show him what is expected. He does not seem to have a prey instinct and did not chase the neighbor’s cats, the quail or any other small animals.
Grady has been a very happy and well-behaved boy. He just keeps improving as he feels better each day. He has the makings of a great family dog. He is young and will take some time and patience as he has energy and will need an outlet for that. Grady will do well in any home, especially those with children and other dogs. This sweet boy is ready for a forever home.
Grady will have one more follow-up evaluation with his surgeon, to make sure he's still healing properly. Please keep that in mind if considering requesting to meet him. "
Grady currently has the maximum allowed meet requests, please watch for updates.
