Blackie is a sad senior. He was surrendered to the shelter because his owners moved into an apartment that didn't allow dogs. Now this boy sits in his cage day after day waiting for a new home. This sweet boy has great house manners. He's also fine with other dogs and cats. Blackie is 8 years old but has the energy of a 3 year old dog and the wisdom of an older dog. He likes to sit with his master and hang out. Blackie has alopecia that causes some hair loss in his hip area. Please don't let that deter you from adopting him. He's your typical lovable Lab!
