Adoptable Dog of the Week- Logan

PetGuide logo

If you want a gentle, loving dog whose world will revolve around you, this handsome furball could be just the dog for you! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Logan, a 5-year-old Labrador Retriever and Hound mix from Durham, North Carolina.He is fully housetrained, up to date on his shots, neutered, and good with other dogs.

Logan’s road was a bumpy one, but hopefully, that’s about to change! He was first picked up as a stray and adopted not long after, only to be returned after a few years, when his adopter combined households with another person who had a dog (he didn’t get along with Logan). This left Logan a bit shy and cautious around humans, but only at first, until he gets a chance to know you.

This strawberry-blond boy is quite eager to please, and words of praise and gentle pats can motivate him almost as much as yummy treats. Logan already knows basic commands: Come (accompanied by a whistle), Sit, Down, Wait, “Pillow” for his bed, “Get in” for his kennel, Roll-over, and Shake. Pretty impressive, am I right?

Although Logan is very affectionate and sweet-natured, he would do best as the only pet in the household. It’s not that he doesn’t get along with other pooches, quite the contrary: he’s really well-mannered around them. It’s just that he’s not too big on sharing attention with other four-legged babies! When it comes to cats, Logan hasn’t had the chance to hang out with felines, so his behavior around kitties is a mystery to his rescuers.

Also, the rambunctious nature of most little kids is not the best match for this mellow boy, so it would be best if his new home didn’t have any young’uns running around!

Logan is a dog with a wonderful personality, pretty looks, and he’s a smart cookie to boot- what more can a pawrent wish for? If you’re curious to learn more about him and how you could adopt him, visit Independent Animal Rescue, Inc.
