It’s hard to believe that this pooch with a million dollar smile doesn’t yet have forever home! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Oats, a 3 to 4 years old Labrador Retriever mix from Atlanta, Georgia. This handsome boy is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and fully housetrained. Oats gets along well with older children but needs to be the only pet in the household.

Oats’ Tale

You would never guess from his upbeat attitude and happy-go-lucky behavior, but Oats has been in the shelter for a little over 2 years. It’s through no fault of his own, though- he simply didn’t have the luck to meet his match yet!

Even though a puppy at heart, Oats is a real gentleman around the house. His behavior is calm and dignified and he has lovely manners. Oats waits at all doorways to be invited in or out and never approaches his food bowl until given permission. He is fully housetrained and even crate trained- in fact, he loves his crate and thinks of it as a safe little space.

But just because he’s easygoing and quiet, it doesn’t mean that Oats will be a boring companion. On the contrary! He has a playful side to him and loves going on hikes, walks, and car rides. When he’s not strutting his stuff for the world to see, he’ll enjoy playing with his favorite blue rubber ball. Of course, while playing with bouncy balls and walking on a leash are all fun activities, there’s nothing that Oats would enjoy more than being a part of someone’s family. This sweet boy is very affectionate and just wants someone who’d love him back!

Oats can be a perfect pet to families with older, respectful children, or a companion to an active single. The only thing he needs is a pet-free home, as he doesn’t get along with cats or dogs. If you think you could give Oats the love and family he deserves, contact LifeLine Animal Project for more information.
