Kumar's first five years of life were not easy. Coming from a hoarding situation with 4 other dogs, Kumar arrived at Labs and More very shy and scared of everything. He is slowly opening up in his foster home and letting his inner happy dog loose, but he will need a patient family willing to continue to socialize him with new places, people and other dogs. Kumar looks to be a mix of a few breeds but we think he could have a little Lab in him. With his red coloring and speckles on his chest, he may also have some Cattle Dog in his mix. Kumar is shy with new people and dogs. He came to Labs and More with several other dogs and always perked up when they were around. Now he is fostered with three dogs ranging from 30lbs to 60 lbs and he has just started playing with them. Since he has always been with other dogs and they help make him more confident, we think Kumar would like another dog in his forever home. He met a nonreactive dog savvy cat and was scared of and avoided the cat. We think with time and patient introductions, Kumar would be able to live with a cat. Kumar is very much a velcro dog with his people and dog siblings. He bonds quickly and closely to one person and then follows him or her everywhere as a shadow. When he is nervous, he takes sanctuary in his crate, but he is learning it's okay to be out of his crate and socializing. He sleeps through the night in a dog bed in his foster parents' bedroom. Kumar is treat motivated and takes treats gently. He is doing well with house training when he has access to a yard and taken out regularly but still has the occasional accident inside. Walk time is when he truly lights up. Kumar's tail starts wagging and his prances around the neighborhood with his head held high. He goes on several walks a day in his foster home and has medium energy. At home, he is quiet and well mannered. Kumar is still learning kindness of humans and right now, we think he would prefer a quieter home where he can continue to open up and blossom. If you are interested in meeting Kumar, please submit an adoption application on our website.
