Comments: dense and a little curly on back
4/29/17: Hunter Hunter is a medium sized, moderate energy Black Labrador, with very pronounced Newfoundland traits. He has a large head and curly hair on his chest and back. His big dark eyes will melt your heart. He is very loving and wants to be with his people, all the time. He shows no aggression towards other dogs, and may be good with other animals, such as a cat, as well. He is house trained and uses a dog door readily. He does not counter cruise, trash dive, or chew on things that he shouldn't. He is quite curious about everything around him, but does not show an inclination to run away or wander off. He is actually very much a Velcro-lab. He is fine on the leash (doesn't pull) and rides in a vehicle very well.
Hunter, his shelter name, was picked up in Orange County as a stray, and was neutered shortly after that. He has some weakness in his hind legs, but that seems to be getting better with exercise. It is suspected that he was kept in a small enclosure and didn't get much exercise. The veterinarian did an exam and couldn't find anything physically wrong with his hind quarters. He is also a little hard of hearing. His fosters are not sure how much he actually hears, when spoken to. But he does respond to hand claps and whistles, so there is some hearing left. After his ears were examined, it was discovered that the poor boy had suffered many untreated ear infections over the years and this had left him with scar tissue in both ears. He also has slight cataracts in his eyes, probably from prolonged sun exposure, but his vision seems overall adequate for his age.
This loving boy needs a forever home with a person or family that will give him the Love, Care, and Life that he so much deserves. If you are looking for that "Special Dog", please consider this "Special Boy".
