In October of 2016 we took in a Yellow Lab from a home that was unable to find time for him. He received little formal training. He was stuck in a crate most of the day where he acquired bad housebreaking habits. He wasn't given the opportunity to succeed as a dog.
When he arrived at ROAR, Ike was a goofy nine-month-old who peed on most of our stuff in the Blue Buffalo room. He was a strong puller on the leash and would take your whole hand when offered a small treat. He would eat his towels when left alone in his kennel. He even enjoyed grabbing plastic bags out of everyone’s hands whether they were filled with tasty treats or poop from the yard. This young pup was going to be a piece of work, but anyone who has met him will agree with one thing: Ike’s a charmer.
