Meet Hemingway! This handsome guy is about 2 years old and is a mix of Australian Shepherd and probably Cattle Dog. Hemingway is a fun-loving guy who is very affectionate, and wants to please his pack leader. True to his breed mix, he is very intelligent and loves to be out and about- he'd make a great companion for walking, hiking, beach play, and other outdoor activities. His foster also thinks he'd make a great agility dog as he is very fast and would likely love a chance to show off his moves! There are 6 other dogs in his foster home and he gets along well with all of then, but Hemingway can be a bit insecure, especially around dogs he doesn't know, and would do best in a home with a confident pack leader to reassure him that everything his fine. Once he's gotten to know the other dogs around him they are best buddies and Hemingway makes for an excellent playmate. He picks up cues quickly via the leash and his foster has been working with him using a training collar. His instinct is to herd things, especially animals and humans who are smaller, so we recommend a home with children at least 8 years old. His foster has been working with him on this instinct, but when excited sometimes he can't help himself. Hemingway is both house and crate trained, and can be left home alone in his current foster home. Hemingway is always alert and ready to join in on any fun there is to be had! He knows many basic commands including sit, come, stay, wait, and leave it and happily follows his pack leader. He is looking for an experienced family familiar with herding dog breeds and their needs. If you are interested in giving Hemingway a second chance at a forever home, your first step is to submit an adoption application on our website.

This information is as up to date and accurate as possible for the dog in its current environment. All dogs and puppies will need time and training to adjust to their new surroundings and to learn the rules of their new home. If you are interested in meeting one of our dogs, the first step is to complete the Adoption Form on our website at www.labsandmore.org and take some time to review our adoption process. Your adoption includes the spay or neuter, current vaccinations, microchip, and other services provided while in our care. The safety and health of our puppies is priority one, so we only allow approved applicants to meet and handle puppies. Please understand everything we do is for the dogs and conducted by our kind and generous volunteers. We rely solely on donations, and we do not profit from a dog's adoption. Labs and More is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that operates on donations and time dedicated to this cause by volunteers. Your adoption will save the life of future dogs in need. Labs and More makes no guarantees regarding the behavior, breed, or age of the dogs in our care. Although we strive to provide necessary medical care to dogs in our care, we cannot predict future or current medical needs whether they were symptomatic or not at the time of adoption.
