Physical Description: Karl is a big cuddly Labrador mix! He has very sweet brown eyes, and a short, smooth, black brindled coat with hints of yellow and white. He's slim with an athletic build.
Personality: Karl is the absolute boy! He is just as happy watching Netflix with you (preferably with his big ol' head in your lap) as he is accompanying you on your morning run. He's not a little dog by any measure, but he is cuddly and would love to be on your lap if you let him. He is a great mix of chill and fun, even around strangers and in new places. He is housebroken and crate trained. While he would definitely prefer to be cuddling with you in bed, Karl does well in a crate overnight. He seems to be pretty good at coping with change, and got used to the weekday routine in his foster home pretty quickly within the first few days . . . and is catching up on episodes of Game of Thrones. He is a smart cookie, and is starting to learn his manners and basic commands quickly (he definitely loves his treats!). He doesn't know too many tricks yet, but he's great at catching treats. And when he wants to go outside, he will bring his leash and sit by the door with his best puppy eyes.
Karl also gets along well with other dogs, and is just happy to admire the housecats from afar. This easy-going pupper would do well in most households that have consistent rules.
