Meet Cole, the charismatic 2-year-old black lab mix who's ready to bring joy and laughter into your life.

Cole has a friendly disposition with neighbor dogs, briefly interacting with them without any issues. Although initially wary of new people, he's actively working on overcoming this fear, showcasing his determination to grow and build trust.

In terms of training, Cole is crate and potty trained, making him a well-mannered companion. His love for walking is evident, and he adds a playful touch by attempting to carry his leash in his mouth-a charming quirk that reflects his enthusiasm for outdoor adventures.

His training repertoire includes commands like sit, stay, and lay down, and he's currently working on mastering recall within the house. Cole's motivation? Delicious treats! This food-motivated pup is always ready to showcase his intelligence for a tasty reward.

Cole's ideal day revolves around a perfect trifecta: a long hike, a lick mat for mental stimulation, and, of course, a good belly rub to round off the day. His curiosity extends to other dogs, hinting that he might enjoy the company of a furry sibling.

This lovable canine has a playful side, especially when it comes to his love for stuffed animals and toys. His quirky habits, like burping loudly after meals and nosily placing his nose in your face without licking, make him an entertaining and endearing addition to any home.

If you're ready for laughter, love, and delightful companionship, Cole is the perfect furry friend to make your days brighter. Adopt Cole and embark on a journey filled with joy and canine charm!
Come meet your new best friend
