Breed(s): Retriever, Black Labrador/Mix
Believe it or not, you didn't just click on a Labrador mix; you clicked on a bona fide transformer! Meet TIMMY. While Timmy was down on his luck and came in to Dallas Animal Services as an underweight stray experiencing major hair loss, he has not lost his zest for life. This 46 pound ball of love knew exactly how to tug at the heart strings with his initial shyness after being overwhelmed at the shelter. Fast forward to two hours after being in his foster home, and the consummate puppy emerged! Timmy enjoys engaging in play with his foster siblings, and beware his wagging tail! His eyes will have you handing him treats before you even know what hit you. When it's time to go in his crate, it might take a little bribery, but he sleeps through the night with rarely a peep (ok...maybe a little baby snore). His leash skills are still a work in progress, but there's nothing this transformer dog can't conquer. Apply to adopt Timmy today!
