Available Dogs - Flapjack
Flapjack was born into the rescue to a Lab mom and an unknown dad. He's a big boy who is a bit insecure and needs a confident owner.
Flap is an awesome boy full of personality! He loves his people with all his heart. He is anxious when meeting new people and dogs, and his way of dealing with that is to bluster and sound ferocious. He's not. He's a pussycat in a giant dog's body. He absolutely needs a strong (physically and leadership-wise) owner. He needs to know that his humans have life under control, only then he can relax and be the wonderful Flapjack that he is.
In the right home, he will be the best dog you could ever imagine. He's been with trainers for the rescue, for a couple of months and they can't say enough good things about what a sweet, wonderful boy he is!
