DEREK – Mexi-Lab Mix / 6 months / 4.5 kg / M-Neutered

Adorable Derek is here and he is a sweet, playful, obedient pup! He’s curious about the world and loves to explore. Like a good boy, he is working on his house training and listens well to his foster parents. At night, he settles down after just a couple of minutes in his crate. Derek is fairly confident on walks and learning to walk on a leash. He’s food motivated, so that helps! His foster mom says he does a cute little “sploot” when he’s unsure of something and watches before he makes any decisions. He’s not scared though—just learning about his new world! He even met a few new people and was incredibly relaxed and friendly with them.

Derek loves to run and chew on his toys, but is also happy to settle in for a good nap inside, he’s quite a chill guy. His absolute favourite, though, is his foster brother, so a doggie pal in his forever home is a must for this cutie. And, Derek aced his first meeting with the resident cat!
