Hello! My name is Danny, and I am the bestest boy around! Quick Facts: Breed: Chocolate Lab Gender: Male, neutered Age: 7 year old Size: 90 pounds Good with… Dogs? No! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! History I was adopted by my former owners as a little puppy and they have loved me and taken fabulous care of me for the past 7 years. Unfortunately, they have other dogs in the house, and for some reason I just cannot share a home with another dog. I am an incredibly good boy—I am well-mannered, have a gorgeous, loving, amazingly wonderful, affectionate, silly, and sweet personality (I love all people, cats, and children!), but since I keep getting into fights with the other dogs, we all decided that for me (and everyone else) to be happy and safe, I need to find a new home where I will be the only dog in…

Personality Never mind my size, I’m the sweetest, cuddliest, goofiest, snuggliest, loveable guy…

My mom was a German Shepherd and my Dad…wish I knew! There was Border Collie in the litter and you can see that in my floppy ears and some of my markings.

Kids? 10+ calm History I used to have a family, and lived with other dogs, but my owners ran into hard times, couldn’t feed us very well (I was very skinny) and eventually had to surrender us to their local shelter in Kentucky. That was very sad and also very scary, because I heard a lot of people say that the shelter was overcrowded and that older dogs never get picked for adoption. I just hid my head under my paws and waited for the end to come. But wow, how life can change on a dime! The shelter staff saw what a total sweetheart I was, and when CDR contacted them with an opening…
