Meet Kipling, the sweetest, most gentle pup. He is 9 weeks old and what a honey. He is a more passive boy and you’ll always notice him following his siblings around—never the leader (or instigator).
Kipling came to us from an owner whose dog had a surprise litter of pups. Mom is a Golden Retriever/Lab, and I hear she is a beautiful dog—looks like a Golden Retriever but black. Dad is a Newfoundland/Lab mix.
Kippy is the most Newfie-looking of the three pups. What’s not to love about his snout?
He’s been to the vet and is up to date with his first vaccinations, and he is neutered. All he needs now is a wonderful home to call his own.
As far as a good fit, I think there are many kinds of homes that could work well for him. The one thing that may not be the best fit for him is a family who is super busy and doesn’t have much time to spend with him, or a family where the pace of the household is very active.
He is a laid-back guy and so affectionate: he loves to lay on my lap and get tummy rubs. He is quite a kisser, too. He’d make a fantastic therapy dog.
Kippy is extremely faithful and seeks me out, and always comes running when I call him. He is making nice headway in his potty training.
I’ll post more as I get to know him. If you think Kipling sounds like a pup for you, please submit an application. Include how you will care for him: socialization, exercise, training--all that important stuff!
