SAY HELLO TO
My name is Bart and I am a very handsome Retriever/Labrador mix. I am a very lucky dog because the good folks at Almost Home saved me. I am presently living in a very nice foster home but I am looking for my forever home.
My foster family tells me often that I am a very special guy. I love to be pet and tummy rubs are one of my favorite ways to relax. I also love the attention that goes with a tummy rub! I enjoy car rides, walks and being outside. I even enjoy baths! I have a lot of energy so playing with my toys is fun. My foster family is teaching me to 'fetch' and I almost have it mastered. I am housebroken which I know is an important skill for a dog to master!
I have completed a beginner training class and would love to continue with more training. I'm good with obedience commands like 'sit' and 'lay down'. I am also a good watch dog because I bark at people I don't know. However, when I get to know them, I quiet down, I do love people. I believe being the only animal in the home would be best for me. I am a strong boy so living with children over 5 would be ideal.
I am a very good dog and would make a wonderful addition to a wonderful family. I hope you come and see me sometime soon.
