Adoptable Dog of the Week- Pudding

Sweet, smart, and handsome as they come, this good boy is ready to steal your heart! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Pudding, a 3 years old Labrador Retriever and Doberman Pinscher mix from Portland, Oregon. This chocolate-coated beauty is neutered, up to date on his shots and crate trained. Pudding is a friendly guy that does well with older children and other dogs of his size, but would prefer a cat-free home.

Pudding’s Tale

They say that beauty and a great personality don’t always go hand in hand, but Pudding will prove ‘em wrong. Not only that this adorable mutt is blessed with great looks, but he’s also charming and smart to boot. Pudding is an affectionate, people-oriented pooch that will show you the true meaning of love and loyalty only a man’s best friend can offer. He’s also an active, energetic dog that will love to accompany you on your adventures and will appreciate having plenty of exercise- he’s an 86 pound dog so he’s not too demanding, but long daily walks and playtime are more than welcome.

Pudding is crate trained and knows basic commands but he needs some work on his leash manners- he does get a bit too excited and can pull, so you’ll need to have a firm grip. With the right hooman by his side, there’s no saying how much more Pudding will learn- he’s a young, smart pooch that’s motivated by praise and treats, after all. Pudding does well with other dogs and older kids that could play with him without you worrying he’ll knock them over, but he’s not the biggest fan of felines, so he should go to a cat-free home.

In case you’re interested in giving Pudding a furever home, contact Family Dogs New Life Shelter for more information on the adoption process.
