Introducing Criterion, a handsome young house-trained Lab mix proudly sporting a white tuxedo. Criterion currently doesn't live in a home with other dogs, but he licked a dog that ran up to him on the street. So he is friendly with dogs and may do well in a home with them. He also kissed a young child who was giving him scratches which he enjoyed, so Criterion may do well in a home with kids!

Are you looking for big pup energy? Then Criterion is the boy for you! He's a fast learner, avid chewer, belly rub aficionado, and a lover of fetch. Criterion loves to chew his toys on the sofa next to you while watching TV and will make a great Netflix and chill buddy! And he will do anything for a treat!

Criterion is passionate about hunting for squirrels and loves to find people with free hands to pet him while sniffing about the neighborhood. His favorite thing to do by far though is eat, as all growing pups should!

Criterion is learning basic commands and is well on his way to mastering "sit" after just a couple of days. He is highly treat-motivated and focused. He will figure out the next commands as fast as he has his first. Criterion does well with a lot of attention and activity and needs some tough toys to withstand his love of chewing. Come see if you can beat him at tug of war!

Do you have room in your heart and a place in your home for the handsome, intelligent, easy-going Criterion? Come meet Criterion today!
