Meet Mr. Kenzo! Kenzo is looking for an adoptive home because he needs some work on his manners and struggles being crated. He has never enjoyed being in the crate and becomes stressed when the door is closed. He will lay down in the crate on his own if the door remains open. In the home, Kenzo is a consistent counter surfer and likes to steal items he shouldn’t so he can play keep away or chew on them. He is looking for a home that can provide adequate puppy proofing and management of these behaviours, as well as someone who is home during the day.
Kenzo is a goofy, puppyish boy who loves playing with his humans. His favourite treats are stuffed Kongs although as a lab, anything edible will do. He does best with durable toys. He enjoys stuffed animals but pulling out the stuffing is the best part so they don’t last very long!
He has lived with older children and loves their attention. He’s a sucker for some good head scratches or cuddles. He gets along well with other dogs and would do well with another dog in the home or some friends to play with. He has met a cat previously and was fearful so he’d prefer a home without cats.
Kenzo knows his basic obedience and is eager to work for all types of treats. He can be strong on leash so we highly recommend a head halter. He gets excited to see other dogs on leash and is working on calm behaviour around distractions. He travels well in the car and would love to travel with his new family!
