Description: 
Hi, I'm Fresno. They call me a stud but I don't just rest on my good looks. Check out my cool-looking eyebrows though. I'm sweet, loving, confident and get along with everyone. As a 7 year-old chocolate male, I will fit in with just about any family and I'm just looking for some love and attention. Weighing in at a solid 80 pounds, I could stand to lose a few pounds. Daily exercise should fix that. I have had no formal obedience training but I do know some basic commands. I am not sure how to play with toys but would love for you to show me. Considering I am not walked regularly on a leash, I walk well and don't pull much unless I get a whiff of some good smells. Can you blame me? Because I don't get out much, I might try to slip out the door past you but I don't go far at all. In my excitement to interact with people, I might jump a little or knock into a small child. I'm smart and trainable so I am sure my new family can teach me not to do those things. I'm used to living with and around a lot of other dogs and my owner has to re-home most of us because she can no longer care for all of us due to changes in the family. Many of the dogs I lived with have already found homes with Brookline and they are really thriving. I would love a new start too and a chance to live in a home with my own family. I have always lived in an indoor/outdoor kennel run with other dogs. Because of that I am not the most worldly dog in terms of knowing how to be a family dog. I need a patient, loving family willing to show me the ropes as I transition from living in a kennel to inside a home. It will all be new and exciting to me. I have never been in a crate or had much experience in a car. As far as being housebroken, I currently only go in my outside kennel and not in the inside area so that should help me learn where to go when I am living in a home. Brookline feels that it is best for me to go to a home that already has a dog because I am so used to being with other dogs. It will help with the transition. If you have a cat, that is fine. I am used to being around a barn cat and though I may bark at the cat and briefly chase in play, I mean no harm and will leave the cat alone if you tell me to. I am up to date on my shots and hip-certified. I'm not neutered yet, so my new family will need to take care of that after the adoption is final. Please consider applying to adopt me. I really want a chance to live life as a true member of a family and I promise it will be worth your while! My kennel-mate was recently adopted so I am alone and missing a canine companion too. With Valentine's Day coming, isn't it the right time for some chocolate? I would love to be your sweetheart. Love, Fresno For more information on this Lab, please contact jahamill@aol.com .
