Featured Dog: Reggie – ADOPTED!

Reggie

Meet Reggie, a happy 5 months old lab mix. He’s goofy, endearing, energetic, and easy to love.

Reggie

If you want to see what Reggie will look like in a few years when he runs for President, I mean, when he gets older and more dignified,  here you go. T his is probably the closest I could get to him looking rather solemn.

Reggie

One of his many talents is sitting very easily. He knows to sit for food treats, toys, and at your command. He loves food (like most labs) and would be very fun to train.

Reggie

As a bonus, he also knows how to look cute while asking for treats. He’s very earnest, isn’t he?

Reggie

Reggie also knows ‘down’ though for him, it is more of a launchpad than a command.

Reggie

From this position, he is ready to run… or to collapse on his back for a bellyrub.

Reggie

Uh-oh. You see that look in his eyes and that grin? He’s going to ask for a bellyrub, for sure. The thing is, he’s very easygoing about it and you can’t resist.

Reggie

I certainly couldn’t. Of all dogs at the shelter, Reggie is probably the most laid-back and relaxed. For example, when he snoozes, he presses himself against the front of his kennel and sleeps on his back with his paws in air. It’s quite hilarious.

Reggie

Every time I passed by his kennel and saw him like that, I’d try to take pictures, but Reggie would wake up. Somehow he just knows, and thinks you want to play with him!

Reggie

Reggie is also a very good couch buddy. He will sit next to you, lie down, and promptly roll over for a bellyrub.

Reggie

As you can see, he is quite thrilled with that. Shade and a bellyrub? Two wins for Reggie!

Reggie

He likes bellyrubs in the cool grass, too.

Reggie

“More, please?”

Reggie

“Ahhhhhh!” Here he is arching his back in bliss.

Reggie

Like most labs, Reggie likes to play with toys, mostly chasing them around.

Reggie

He also likes to run, too, and would make a terrific running partner.  He’s working on not pulling the leash too much, but a regular routine of walks and exercise will help with his self control.

Reggie

As you can see, he was thrilled with that day’s high temperatures and sunshine.

Reggie

Here he is, bringing me a very orange bunny.

Reggie

Reggie also appreciates a good stick. The recent storms have provided a nice supply on the walking trail.

Reggie

“This is MY stick, you hear? Get your own stick!”

Reggie

“Nom nom nom. This is a VERY good stick for ME. It is a BAD stick for YOU. So I’ll have the stick, ok?” Let’s just say I was more than happy to let him chew on sticks 🙂

If you are interested in this goofy, happy guy, please visit him in Kennel 42. For more information on Reggie, please contact doginfo@apsofdurham.org or leave a comment below.
