Adoptable Dog of the Week – Judge

The verdict is clear: we’re all in favor of declaring this pooch guilty of cuteness! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Judge, a 2-year-old Labrador Retriever mix from Lincoln, Nebraska. This handsome boy is neutered and up to date with his shots. Judge is still learning the ropes, but he shows great promise in training- and he gets along great with cats and dogs both.

Judge’s Tale

Judge was rescued from a rural southern pound, and he still can’t believe his luck. Toys all around, attention and love from his fosters… If only he’d get a furever family to shower him with love, too! Sadly, as a black dog, Judge doesn’t get many people asking around for him. Which is a shame, because this Lab mix is not only a gorgeous-looking guy but a smart cookie, too.

He is very motivated by treats and is learning new stuff with each day. He knows how to sit and stay (and several other commands), walks beautifully on a leash and has passed his housebreaking with flying colors. With the right person beside him, Judge could learn even more, or even compete in sports such as agility- he surely has both the brain and the energy for it!

Ideally, as he still has a lot of his puppy spirit, he would go to a family that would meet his need for exercise and has a big, safely fenced yard where he could play all he wants. Judge gets along with cats and dogs, so he wouldn’t mind sharing his family with another fur baby. In fact, he’d probably love having a goofy canine companion to keep him company! He would be the best fit for an adult-only home or a family with older children, as his size and excitability are not a good mix for tiny young ones.

If you think that Judge is the dog you’ve been waiting for, contact Dolly’s Legacy Animal Rescue for more information.
