Introducing Rhaegar! Rhaegar is not your ordinary lab, he’s an American Lab weighing about 85lbs. This big man is around 2 years old and won’t get any larger. He is housebroken and crate trained and the big man on campus with all of his 4-legged lady friends in the house!

Rhaegar is proving to be a pretty simple pup and does very well with both children and cats. There is definitely some curiosity, but when swatted by the resident feline at the vet’s office, he backed away immediately not knowing what just happened. Then he got excited and trotted back up, trying to figure out what this hissing creature was! So far, he can be a little hand shy but otherwise seems to have no other fears!

If you (or your kid) has always wanted a pony, Rhaegar basically passes for one, so you can work that angle and save your marriage. He’s a big ham and is still working on building his confidence. It took him a minute to get used to the wild puppies he lives with, seeking refuge on the patio furniture, but now he deals with the crazies and plays a little here and there. At the dog park, he runs around smiling the whole time, introducing himself to all of the people! He does fine with other dogs, but is much more interested in the humans 🙂

Exercise is always a good idea with any younger dog, but Rhaegar doesn’t seem to need a whole lot. While he enjoyed the dog park, he is just as content chewing on bones all day, or taking up the ENTIRE couch while he lounges around. This laid back lad enjoys receiving affection and will check in occasionally with Foster Mom, but is not needy. While he isn’t very playful with the other dogs, he seems to have a liking for one of them, cuddling up to her and following her around the house. Though another dog is not necessary to adopt Rhaegar, it may help him adjust more easily with a buddy around.

With as large as Rhaegar is, galloping around with his tongue hanging out is quite the scene. He is very well mannered and knows his boundaries – when Foster Mom is eating, he may come up and rest his chin on the table, but he doesn’t try to steal anything. Of course, when he gets hungry he will sometimes venture to the dog food bags and attempt to help himself… so those need to be kept in a dog-proofed location. He also seems to know how large he is and doesn’t knock things over.

Overall, Rhaegar is a laid back, gentle giant. He is so patient with all the puppies running around and jumping on him and just wants to be a part of the family. He may not know basic tricks (like sit, stay, etc) but he is such a well behaved pup and so eager to please, he could pick it up in no time!
