Reston Pet of the Week: Sonny

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Sonny, a 3-year-old yellow lab who is looking for a new home. Here is what his foster family and the people at Lab Rescue of LRCP in Fairfax have to say about him:

Sonny is a 3.5-year-old neutered yellow male. He is a handsome, young active dog who likes to get outside to stretch his legs and play. He is very friendly and enjoys being petted. He likes to retrieve and brings it back but sometimes takes the long way.

He needs a home with a fenced yard and an active family that will play with him every day. He is good with other dogs but no cat history. He pulls a bit on lead at first but is better with an Easy Walk Harness.

He loves to play outside but then he can’t wait to come inside and play with the soft toys. He likes to hoard them in his crate. He has no problems going in to the crate and taking a nap. He likes the attention of people! He enjoys being rubbed behind the ears and on his chest. And of course, like most labs, he is very food-driven. He eats fast and takes treats very well.

Are you and Sonny a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you a sample of dog treats and $100 in Becky’s Bucks.
