Although it was an extremely heartbreaking decision, Blackie’s dad knew it was the best decision for Blackie to return him to ADS. His dad has urgent health issues that he must deal with and he won’t be able to properly care for Blackie, so this sweet boy is back with us, looking for a new home.

Blackie is an awesome dog. He’s taking all of the recent changes in his life in stride. At 10-years-old, he has a ton of spunk compared to much younger dogs. He’s a best-friend kind of boy who really loves to be with you. He’ll follow you everywhere and he appreciates every minute of affection he can get. He’s well-behaved and he knows several commands.

Blackie’s a big fellow, but gentle as can be and easy to handle on a leash. He does love to eat, so don’t leave anything out on the counter, if you know what we mean. He’s a non-chewer, non-barker and trustworthy when left home alone – unless it involves food and you leave it out where it can “talk” to him and he, therefore, must eat it. He is a lab, you know.

Blackie is a happy energetic dog with a kind and gentle personality, and his tail never stops wagging! He’s extremely adaptable — and very lovable! Please don’t let the number of his age influence you. This boy has a ton of love to share and lots of things to teach you.
