Hello! Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Belvedere and I’m pleased to make your acquaintance. I’m a very sweet and lovable 6-year-old Black Lab mix.
I’m very social and love to be with people. But, I have to be honest and inform you that I suffer from separation anxiety and have been destructive in the past when left alone.
I'm in need of a home that understands the issues associated with separation anxiety. My new guardians should be patient and willing to work on training with me to resolve my anxiety.
One thing I’ve learned at the shelter is that I seem to be much less anxious when I have the company of another dog to keep me occupied. So, I'm best suited for home where a family member or another dog will always be around. Also, an enclosed big yard or acreage where I can work out my frustration and anxiety while I'm being trained would help me avoid causing damage inside the home.
I love to go for walks and to have my hair brushed. And, I do know basic commands and walk on a leash very nicely.
So, if you are looking for a dog who is used to lots of love and you are someone who has a lot of time and understands my needs please contact the Trail Branch of the BC SPCA to learn more about me.
