Casper, a friendly lab-shepherd mix
Our pet pick of the week is Casper, a very striking 3-year-old male yellow lab, shepherd mix. Casper is very friendly, affectionate boy. He is trustworthy with cats and children and is good with most dogs. Although a tad bit jumpy at times, he already knows a few commands and his eagerness to please coupled with his penchant for treats, makes him a great candidate for training. Casper is an awesome family dog looking for a family.
