Fellow humans, I'd like you to meet Abe. Abe is a kind and jovial Lab.
He is crazy about flip-flops and has a favorite treat: popcorn. Abe is an absolute lovebug.
Abe is a doting sidekick to humans (even though he sometimes will make you play for hours and hours).
Sadly, Abe was found in a shopping cart behind a farmers market with a cardboard sign saying "FREE DOG". Abe was brought to ShelterPups.com and now spends time playing with the other ShelterPups while patiently waiting for a Rescue Hero.
Abe wakes up each morning hoping this will be the day he finally finds a new human. Abe is a sporty, high energy dog. Abe's unbelievable intelligence makes him the perfect adoptable friend for humans that love to play (a lot). Some describe Abe as kind of hyper and he'll be best in a home where he can get regular walks or runs and plenty of training sessions.
He is basically house broken, but will have accidents if left alone for too long.
Things You Should Know Before Adopting Abe

There's a lot of Labrador in this Shelter Pup!
Friendliness: Labs are loyal, loving, affectionate and patient. They are very intelligent and will enjoy playing a long game of fetch. Make sure you introduce your pup to lots of friends so he does not become too shy.
Grooming: The Lab's smooth short-haired coat is easy to groom. Brush and comb their coat weekly with a firm, bristle brush. Labs love swimming so make sure you wash out all the pond water after each swim.
Health: Your Lab loves food but make sure he doesn't eat too much as some Labs can become obese. Feeding your pup a healthy diet will ensure that he is feeling great.
Exercise: Labs LOVE the water and never pass up the opportunity for a good swim. Besides swimming, they can be taken on a daily long walk, jog or run alongside you when you bicycle.
