Handsome Slate should be featured in a Pantene Pro-v commercial because his shiny, sharp, black coat is stunning. Slate's DNA results told us he is 40-60% Labrador Retriever, 29-39% German Shepherd, and 10-25% American Staffordshire Terrier. What a winning combination! (his certificate is attached - his foster calls hime Moby)

A young guy, Slate prioritizes playtime and enjoys frolicking with other energetic dogs that he's met at the shelter. When he's with his human friends, he practices his leash walking and basic skills, like "sit." As a reward, he receives delicious treats and time with a tennis ball. At times, Slate shows his independent side and will contentedly explore the play yard on his own. (Dog models, amirite?) This stunning 55-pound teenager is about 1 year old and can get very bouncy. He will benefit from the structure of rewards-based training.
