Liam is my idea of a great dog and forever best friend ! He is very good looking(but that is not so important to me..), welcoming in his kennel, calm, well mannered, a great walker, civil to other dogs met, housetrained and enjoys close contact with a human…That I think defines Liam and it matches pretty much the comments left with us by his former owner who did not have time for a pet anymore. Liam who is six year old was adopted as a puppy from another shelter lived happily with very young children, was friendly to strangers and played nicely with other dogs. We are told that he gave a kiss..when asked…. Very cute… Liam heals on the leash. He does his business in one stop, no marking involved. He sits on command and for treats. He so enjoys company and has a beautiful smile to reward my presence. He settles by my side like he was my faithful steed…Liam has been beautifully cared for. He is healthy looking, of a great weight and his coat shines like a black diamond in the sunlight. He is a magnificent Labrador Retriever who will make a new master proud and blessed to have him as a pet. Come and meet wonderful Liam at the Manhattan Care Center and make him yours..for ever
Liam is a 6 year old Lab / American Bulldog mix (as per DNA test). His family adopted him from another shelter when he was a puppy and surrendered him because they no longer have time for him.
Liam is friendly/outgoing with new people. He lived with 2 children ages 0-2 and was relaxed, playful, and tolerant with them. He plays exuberantly with people. He visited a large female dog who was very high energy. He was timid but playful and tolerant and played gently with her. Outside, he’s relaxed, playful, tolerant, and plays exuberantly with other dogs. Liam visited cats and was relaxed and playful with them. He tried to sniff them but wouldn’t chase them. He hasn’t bit anyone.
Liam doesn’t mind storms. He doesn’t mind when someone takes his food/treat/toy, moves him off furniture, holds/retrains him, wakes him up, or trims his nails. He’s nervous but tolerant during baths. He loves being brushed. He’s friendly with strangers who approach his home/family.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Liam’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, and medium energy. He follows them. He plays with balls, stuffed toys, and bones. He plays fetch, chase, and tug. He lived inside and ate dry dog food. He’s housetrained, pottied outside in grass, and didn’t have accidents. He’s well-behaved while home alone. He was crated when he was younger but doesn’t need to be anymore. He sits, comes, lies down, gets up, and gives a kiss when asked. He went for brisk walks and pulled lightly on his leash. Off-leash, he wanders but comes when called.
Liam had a loose body, wagging tail, and open mouth while I pet him, scanned him (-), collared him, and took his pictures. He stood up and gently leaned into me while I pet him.
