For those searching for the perfect dog, you can put on the brakes now. According to Bronco’s foster, that would be Bronco. He is a 108 pound lap dog who loves people and could not be more affectionate. He is approximately 3.5 years old and gets along beautifully with other dogs. So often, the bigger the pup, the more gentle – something we have witnessed many times. Everyone who has met Bronco is 100% smitten with this fabulous dog.
FOSTER UPDATE: “Bronco must have been named after the NFL team because he’s the champion of rescue dogs. He won us over from the time we picked him up and continues to impress us. He’s 108 pounds of sweet and affectionate lab. He loves being pet, leaning up against your legs for a back scratch, and has a playful personality. We have nothing but good things to say about this sweet boy from the past few days that we’ve had him.
He does great walking on a leash and doesn’t pull much; a big bonus for a dog of his size! Another big perk is that he seems to be a quiet boy. He has not barked once since we picked him up on Saturday! He spent most of yesterday laying outside with us in the shade. He had a trip to the vet today for his checkup and he was a great patient. The staff at the vet complimented him on his sweet disposition.
He knows basic commands such as sit, paw, and no. He does not jump much but has once or twice when he gets excited playing outside or after a treat. It has not been a problem for us and we’re sure he will get better with more training but thought it would be beneficial for potential adopters to know considering his size.
We have not tried crating him but he’s done well with his free reign throughout the house. He stayed on his own with one of our other labs (Ruby) for a few hours earlier today and this evening and they did great together with no accidents. He can navigate stairs but has spent the last two nights sleeping downstairs. We’re assuming because it’s cooler down on the first floor.
The large lab frame is small compared to the size of this boy’s big heart. He is a happy and affectionate boy that will make his future family very happy.”
