Arthur, also known as Bear, is a neutered 3-4 yr old lab mix. He is on the small side at only 20 inches tall and 45 lbs. LDDR pulled Arthur from a shelter in Ohio just before he was to be euthanized.  He was found chained to a porch of an abandoned home.
Arthur is learning to be an inside dog. He will use a crate in the house, although he usually has free run in 4 rooms when his foster people are home.  For car trips, Arthur is better in a transport crate. Arthur enjoys people and dog treats and is people friendly.
Arthur is prey driven, meaning he will go after cats, small dogs, and animals outside.  Arthur is dog selective. He loves one of his fosters' dogs, but not the other foster dog. Arthur and his foster parents are currently working with professional dog trainers. 
Arthur is able to slip his collar and harness so he will need a high fence or he can be walked on a leash to potty. He is a runner and will try to slip out the door and be gone. Therefore, he would do best in a situation where he wouldn't accidentally be let out by children or multiple adults in the home. 

Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all animals before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the animals shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the animal is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Animals MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our animals back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted animal.

Please understand the statements about this animal are based upon the foster home's evaluation of the animal. The animal might behave differently (negatively or positively) in your home. While the animal might be good with the current foster’s dogs, cats, children, etc., it may not be with your animal(s) or children. The animal may be housebroken or litter trained in the home of the foster but may relapse in your home. The animal is represented to the public as it performs in the foster home and any statements made regarding the animal are conditional to that foster home setting. Please understand that statements made regarding this animal are simply overviews and are not guaranteed.

The system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our animals. Visual breed identification in animals is unreliable so for most of the animals we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each animal as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our animals based on personality, not by breed label.

Thank you for looking through our list of animals needing forever homes and choosing rescue first. We appreciate you stopping by.
