He is half Lab, half German Shorthaired Pointer, that was born around 7/2020. He is about 50 lbs with a soft black coat.
He is the most handsome boy that knows how to sit, stay, place, go to his bed, and he loves to play fetch! If you are up doing things around the house, Maple is there to help, probably with a ball in his mouth. Watching TV on the couch? Maple loves to cuddle, he will lay on you just to make sure he gets close enough.
Maple is nervous around other dogs and takes a little while to warm up to them. He would do best in a home pups that will give him his space until he is ready. We are unsure of how he does with cats. He would like a home without kiddos or ones that has older kids.
He goes in his crate very well, is quiet all night, and is totally house trained. He needs work walking on a leash, but is smart and will pick it up quickly with training. He rides well in the car, although he would rather sit on your lap than in the seat by himself. And he comes running when you start the shower, so there is a chance the Lab in him loves water.
Maple was returned to the rescue after nipping a young child, that he had lived with for a year, during a high stress situation. Due to this we are recommending he would do best with kids that can respect his space and give him time to come to them. As well as a family committed to continuing to socialize and expose him to new situations to help make him a well rounded dog. He has a lot of love to give. Did we mention he likes to play fetch?
