Cyrus is a playful and very handsome Labrador Retriever that is eager to be a part of your family. Whether playing fetch or nuzzling close so you can rub his ears, he's eager to please and has an effervescent spirit. His rich black coat is stunning and his soulful sable eyes are always mindful of where you are, even while he's chasing a ball across the yard. His boundless energy would make him a great jogging companion, but he'd likely be just as happy snuggling up at your feet beside the fire this winter.

Although we're not quite sure how old he is, we estimate that he's probably around a year old because he still has plenty of puppy left to keep the kiddos entertained. He'd likely do best with a yard or with an active family because he loves to run and play, but he's also protective and likes to be by your side as well, always in the midst of the action.

Cyrus was found as a stray in November, but he is far from feral. He has a mild disposition and a friendly demeanor that will surely allow him to easily become the newest member of your family. His charming personality will captivate you. Won't you take a chance and give Cyrus a home this season?
