Sarasota, FL-Sandler still searching for a home

Summertime is fast approaching southwest Florida with temperatures hitting the ninety degree mark already in some areas.Yesterday, at Satchel's Last Resort, it was pretty warm at 10 a.m. when I began working with the dogs.
Sandler, as you can see in this photo, knows just how to cool off. He jumps in the doggie pool. His Labrador side is showing.
He has learned how to throw his stuffed toys up in the air and catch them. He then runs like the wind and invites you to chase him. I tried to explain to him I was not running after him in this heat and he cocked his head and looked at me as if to say, "What? You won't chase me? What a wuss."
Sandler has begun to bark at me the minute I enter the shelter because he is anxious to get out and play. He has become a happy, well-adjusted dog who needs a home where he can expend his energy with his human.
He is not a dog you can throw out in the backyard and forget about. He want to love you but needs the right humans to love.
If you are looking for a beautiful, high energy dog who needs a human, please consider check out Sandler. He would make a great running partner and simply riding shotgun in your car. He is black with awhite blaze running down his chest and is a black Labrador/Boxer mix who has never had a home but has been shuffled from rescue to rescue due to his energy level. He lived with other dogs but we have not tested him with dogs at our rescue so that is a possibility.
If you would like more information on Sandler, please contact the rescue at
