DJ is a 6-month old male Lab mix who was surrendered to the shelter. DJ is good with other dogs but not sure about cats. He is still a puppy so he will need to be in a home with kids who can handle his energy and everything that goes along with being a puppy. Right now DJ is a bit nervous and shy around men but if approached in a gentle manner and given some time he warms up nicely. Being a pup he is still pretty active and will need continued training.
