Retriever, Black Labrador
Nick is a striking 11 month old black lab mix with love and energy to spare. He is going to be a fantastic family member, but he has some requirements in his forever home. His ideal home is one with a friendly dog and low human traffic. He has graduated from training at Coyote Ridge.
Nick is a loyal, smart and loving dog. He loves to run and play with other friendly and playful dogs. Strangers need to be introduced slowly and on his terms. Nick needs a calm home with patient humans.
Once he learns he can trust you, you will see that is he a wonderful dog. You can earn his trust by spending time with him in a quiet place while allowing him to explore the area and you. It's important not to rush this process.
