Animal ID: 5428Xander (male)

Flat-Coated Retriever Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Reaching out to all dog friendly friends and family - help needed for our foster, Xander. He truly needs a forever home very soon. For the sake of my own pack, I'm reaching out and asking each of you to help as you may. We recently agreed to foster a 2-year old Lab mix whose owners no longer wanted him. (Anyone seriously interested in meeting Xander is certainly welcome to deeper detail in this regard.) Their reasons stemmed generally from dislike of/frustration with Xander's behavior in the last 18 months.That said what follows is what we have learned about Xander and his needs in a very short span of time. High Level Summary: Xander ... (Read More)needs a home with: - a dominant owner...passive won't cut it here ;) - either no other dogs OR a dog his size, age range, and activity level - an experienced dog lover or lovers (he will require patience and reassurance) - inside privileges are strongly encouraged - he is not a 'yard' dog. He is an amazing guard dog and WILL bark. - non-smokers. We have no idea why; but, he's afraid of smoke and becomes agitated and withdrawn. Stats: - Gender: male - Age: 2 years - Color: black - Weight: 90 lbs - UTD on all vaccs, flea treatment, and heart worm and has historical and consistent records through a local Collin County vet Energy level: - He's 2 and part Lab - he loves to run and play. So far, we have been walking him twice a day, .5 miles each trip; and, he loves it. No doubt he could walk much further and shows great interest in trail running. High points - Xander is: - seriously and adorably affectionate - this guy LOVES laps and cuddling. A lot. - highly intelligent (learns VERY quickly) - perfectly house trained and has zero interest in marking - highly receptive to following & modeling the behavioral example/s of a 'Peer Dog' (in this case, our older Lab). Challenges - Xander has not: - been properly socialized. As such, he has not learned to how to 'meet' or even pass unknown dogs on the street or trail. - learned pack order - adjusted to alone time and can be destructive - definitely stressed when his people leave. - been taught basic commands in the past 2 years. o he knows Sit and Go Outside. o we're working on 'Off' as he jumps when excited; 'Wait' at doors; and 'Halt and Cross' when crossing streets (he pretty much has these!). o he has no grasp of: Stay, Down, Out, Come, Walk, etc. Compatibility: - small children: no - cats: yes - small dogs: no - medium dogs: no o He's very aggressive with small and medium size dogs - nipping has on several occasions escalated. He's very driven to dominate medium size dogs and is clearly dangerous to very small dogs due to his size and desire to dominate. I am open to Rescue environments and private individuals. We know the magic will happen... Thank you in advance - we really believe Xander has a perfect fit out there! He's a true love who needs a devoted person to teach and reassure him how great his life can be. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-25-00421Sherlock (male)

Flat-Coated Retriever Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Sherlock, a retriever mix who is approximately 4-5 years old and weighs about 45 pounds. He appears to be house trained, walks well on a leash. Sherlock is a fitting name for this boy who is busy in the yard with his nose to the ground doing investigative work. He also likes to run and play and chases balls. However, he can't figure out what to do with them once he gets to them!! He climbed up on the bench next to me and wanted to snuggle and get hugs and attention. He also loved rolling over to get belly rubs. He is friendly and has a pleasant personality. Sherlock is a boy in perpetual motion! There is so much to like about him and he ... (Read More)would make a wonderful family member. If interested, please fill out an application here [ http://addicuslegacy.org/adoption-application.html ] and we will get back to you asap! (Less)

lnteresting Flat-Coated Retriever Trivia Low-Cost Texas Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The Flat-Coated Retriever is descended from North American Newfoundlands brought into Great Britain from Canada. The Flat-Coated Retriever dates back to the mid nineteenth century. The Flat-Coated Retriever almost died out during World War II. The Flat-Coated Retriever was supposed to have been descended from the St. John's Water Dog, but this turns out not to be the case.
