Lawson – His Name Should be Bandit Because He’ll Steal Your Heart!

nl - houndhavenHello! My name is Lawson and I’ve been patiently waiting to tell you my story! I was found as a stray by animal control, and I was not in good shape. I had a case of something called demodex mange that caused me to lose all of my hair on my chest, legs, and even face. But Houndhaven saw lots of potential in my scabby little body and came to my rescue. Turns out they have had lots of experience getting dogs like me into top notch shape, and made them go from bald to beautiful!
So, as you can see by my picture I’m an adorable, if not slightly bald, chocolate lab mix. I’m still a young lad at just 8 months of age, so I’ve got a lot of fun puppy energy. I’m playful, and when I go on walks I like to carry sticks of all sizes. I love to cuddle with all of the volunteers, and even though I had a rough start at life, that hasn’t stopped me from loving everyone that I meet.
My skin is getting better and better every day. They tell me it will take some time for all of my fur to grow in completely and that I just need to be patient. So while I’m patiently waiting for fur, I’m hoping my forever family finds me first. I’m a good, sweet, loving boy and I promise to bring nothing but love and happiness to my new family.
