"Shelter Staff made the following 
comments about this animal:
Voted most handsome by all the other dogs at the shelter, you won't believe how good looking this guy is. He's a typical Lab and very well behaved. He's sweet and loves people. He does well with dogs and prefers to do his business outside. What are his favorite things to do? Hang out and fetch tennis balls. He'll fetch tennis balls until your arm gets tire. This guy is a perfect "10". Come check him out.
