Hi there! My name is Bradley and I am pleased to meet you! No really, I love everyone I meet and the feeling is mutual. I was in a local shelter where all the staff loved me and they were not afraid to say so. Like most dogs in rescue my past is a bit of a mystery. I am a mix but I am told I act just like a typical lab- goofy but smart, sweet and outgoing, love for all things food, and I have an extremely soft mouth when it comes to taking treats. I was originally from the south where I was found roaming the streets. Due to this I am a bit thin but am working on filling out and gaining my confidence. Even though I was picked up as a stray I was clearly a pet at one time. Not only am I friendly and familiar with household items street dogs are usually not (people, cars, stairs, bowls, dog toys, leashes, etc.) but I was found with a chip! No one came to get me so I came to Minnesota to try my luck here. The shelter was not an ideal place for me as I am fun loving and need a place to play so my foster family took me in and boy I am loving life. Not sure if you know this but tennis balls are the best thing ever created. And squeaky balls. And plastic balls. Okay any ball really. I love to play fetch but can also hang out next to you and entertain myself....with a ball. My favorite thing to do is try to get multiple tennis balls in my mouth. No luck yet but that doesn't stop me from trying. I am currently working on my training and am told I am doing great- it helps that I am very smart. I currently know sit, go outside, and lay down. I am working on shake and stay and am getting so close. I just get a little excited sometimes and can't help myself. I love all people but I especially love dogs! I am a bit in your face sometimes so I am not sure smaller dogs would appreciate me but I can't get enough of the three dogs I currently reside with. I do great with children too but again due to my size I should probably stay away from really little ones. I sometimes don't realize my size and bump into people when playing. I don't mean to it's just, I mean, BALLS!! As you can see by my pictures I am tall, blonde, and handsome, and I have the best ears out there! They move in different directions when I am listening to my surroundings. I am crate trained, potty trained, ride well in a car, and am just one happy go lucky dude! If you are looking for a fun, playful, and friendly dog I am your guy.
