Teddy Needs a Home

Lab00 black propjts ho

My name is Teddy and I am about 1 1/2 years old. I am a big strong blocky 85lb boy with a thick black coat. I am very affectionate and love to sit ON your feet or lap or anywhere near you. I am confident, energetic and playful and love to get my big foster brother all riled up. Although I was a stray my foster mom can tell I had a family once because I already knew how to sit when I moved in. I was a little confused about the rules of the house at first but my foster mom and brother have been showing me the ropes and I am starting to figure it out. I have learned to go in my crate when she says "Kennel-up!", I have learned to lie down, I am learning to "leave-it" even when there is something really tempting in front of me. My foster mom thinks she is the best dog trainer in the world but the truth is that I am one of the fastest learners she has ever met! I have already learned to ring a bell when I want to go outside (but my foster brother taught me that one all by himself so she can`t take any credit for that). I would love to learn more new tricks and my foster mom thinks I might even be a good "working dog". I was worried that meant that my days of hanging out were over until she told me it would mean lots of treats and hanging out with my human all day.
I can be  a pretty quiet boy too. I have a deep bark when I think there are intruders and a fun little bark when I see something I want to play with, but I do not do either bark very much! I love being around my human and will sit by her desk while she is working and move around the house with her. I love being around her but when she leaves I wait patiently in my crate for her to return. I have met lots of people, kids and other dogs and just want to play with all of them! I was very sweet to the kids I met and bet they would love to play with me, but my foster mom thinks I would have trouble being gentle enough with them so it would be best if I hung out with older kids. I have not met any cats yet so not sure how I would do around them.
