Meet Houston!

Meet Houston, a lively 6-month-old Lab mix with a zest for life. Houston is embracing his new life as an indoor dog, though he’s still adjusting and learning that the world isn’t a scary place. His high energy means he’s always ready for adventure and play.

Houston needs slow intros with other dogs but does great once introduced. He’s also curious about cats, displaying a keen interest in his feline friends. As he navigates the world, Houston is gradually learning potty training and crate training, but patience and consistent guidance are key.

Given his spirited nature, Houston would thrive best with an experienced puppy foster who can provide the training and structure he needs. He’s still mastering how to manage his excitement without being mouthy, a common puppy behavior that he’s working to overcome.

In summary, Houston is a bundle of joy and energy, perfect for someone experienced in puppy training. He offers boundless affection and the potential to grow into a well-adjusted, loving companion with the right guidance and care.
