Vader is a handsome 1 year old black Lab with very high energy and an extreme love of retrieving tennis balls. This boy will retrieve until your arm falls off. Vader is learning about boundaries at his foster home and is becoming more well-socialized every day. He will need patient reinforcement and formal obedience training at his forever home so he can blossom into The Perfect Lab. He already knows several commands in English and Spanish, and is quick to learn new things. Even though he’s high-energy, Vader loves to chill and just lay around with his people. He’s a cuddle bug at bedtime, and enjoys sharing his fosters’ bed. Vader will need a traditional fenced yard and because his energy level might overwhelm other dogs right now, he would benefit from being the only dog until his socialization is a bit more advanced. Vader came to CILRA with a medical condition that was thoroughly evaluated by specialists, and it was decided that the intensive surgical treatment would not outweigh the potential benefit. So Vader can keep on happily chasing tennis balls as he waits for his forever family to find him. He is fostered in Indianapolis, IN.
