Hello All, New here to the forum. We have an 11 month old Lab mix that we rescued off the street. His name is Ratchet. The vet put him at about 5-6 weeks old when we brought him in. He could barely walk. Now he is pretty steady at 80 lbs. He has also always been very bashful and standoff-ish towards people. We have been socializing him and he is better but still wont let people get near him. As for training and manors, he is very well behaved... he doesn't chew up anything that he's not supposed to, very minimal digging. Picks up things quick, never have an issues with potty training.

He is cute! Thanks for saving him.
He'll come round with lots more socialising ! Just keep plugging at it. It would be a good idea to try with treats to get him close to other people, as I would be worried that he might bite if scared so it's important that he knows that other people aren't necessarily a threat.
Well done with rescuing him !
hes a cutie! thanks for rescuing him!
Bless his heart. He is a cutie. Glad he has you now to take care of him.
What a handsome boy, I love his ears!

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
Thanks for giving that cutie a loving home
