The faithful Mr. Matty. Matty is a cheerful, jovial Lab.
He is crazy about watermelons and is known for running figure eights. Matty is an absolute lovebug.
Even though he eats any morsel of food that stays on the ground for more than 5 seconds, he is as trusting a pal as any dog could be.
It breaks my heart to tell you, but Matty was a stray with his collar embedded around his neck and in need of surgery to remove it. Matty was brought to ShelterPups.com and now spends time playing with the other ShelterPups while patiently waiting for a Rescue Hero.
Matty now dreams of the simple things like a kind human to worship, and a soft, safe place to snuggle. Matty is a friendly, medium energy dog. Matty's rock-solid temperament makes him the perfect comical companion for anyone. You should know that Matty is a very sloppy eater and he is recommended for a home where he'll get lots and lots of attention.
He is basically house broken, but will have accidents if left alone for too long.
Things You Should Know Before Adopting Matty
Matty is a friendly, medium energy Labrador Mix. Be ready for action. Also, each dog breed has certain traits. Knowing a little bit about your dog's individual personality and breed personality will give you some clues about how to care for your dog.
There's a lot of Labrador Mix in this Shelter Pup!
Friendliness: Labs are loyal, loving, affectionate and patient. They are very intelligent and will enjoy playing a long game of fetch. Make sure you introduce your pup to lots of friends so he does not become too shy.
Grooming: The Lab's smooth short-haired coat is easy to groom. Brush and comb their coat weekly with a firm, bristle brush. Labs love swimming so make sure you wash out all the pond water after each swim.
Health: Your Lab loves food but make sure he doesn't eat too much as some Labs can become obese. Feeding your pup a healthy diet will ensure that he is feeling great.
Exercise: Labs LOVE the water and never pass up the opportunity for a good swim. Besides swimming, they can be taken on a daily long walk, jog or run alongside you when you bicycle.
