I have been asked by a good friend to find an 8 month old papered chocolate lab a good home. The pup is a male that is registered with the AKC. I will have the papers and certifications on the pup tomorrow night. He has all of his shots and immunizations. i plan to get some good pictures of him to post up in the next day or two.
My question is what should I look for in a good home for him? Are there some specific questions I should be asking. My goal is to find him a home where he will be hunted.
The back story is that my buddies daughter bought him as a family dog. She has not trained him to anything past sit, here, and stay. He is your typical high drive lab without the required training and discipline a young dog needs. Her problem is a lack of time and knowledge on how to train, exercise, and work with the pup. She wanted a dog that would be just like her 10 year old back yard bred lab that passed away recently. Mellow, lazy, easy going.... She went to a kennel and got a high drive pup that is the opposite of what she was hoping for.
I figured some of the breeders on here might have some good ideas on questions I should ask potential new owners.
