Pet Of The Week: Wes – ADOPTED

Name: WES
Labrador Retriever mix
Age: 3 Year Old
Sex: Male
Animal ID: A623297
: Kennel 22, Town Lake Animal Center


Wes is very treat motivated and will sit for leashing if you have a treat. He walks well on the leash and is very housetrained-he rarely, if ever, goes to the bathroom in his kennel.  He loves all toys, and he loves the game of keep-a-way. He is not a fan of fetch, just chase. He has a mind of his own, but he is EXTREMELY bright. If he is not ready to go back to his kennel, he will run from the leash. However, if you have a treat or give him enough play time, he will wait patiently at the door when leash is in hand. He is a favorite for volunteers to take on the trail !

Per Volunteer Amie, “Wes is easy to leash up and walk to the pen.  This dog is remarkably housetrained!  We took him on a trail walk with another dog and they did really well together. Wes has tunnel vision on the trail – he almost completely ignores everything around him (runners, walkers, strollers, dogs, etc).  Initially, he did pull on the leash a bit but settled nicely. He went right into his kennel when we got back to the shelter.  This big lug is a friendly guy and really does great on the trail!”

As of March 31st, Wes will be at Austin Animal center 365 days. Please consider him when deciding to adopt a shelter pet!
