Wyatt is a super cool 3.5 year old, friendly-as-can-be black lab mix. He’s been living in a not-adventurous-enough scene and is a tad overweight but he is eager to shed some pounds by adventuring with his new adopter. Wyatt is great with other dogs and will probably respect cats easily and quickly. For more information about him, or any pet in the Alpine Shelter, email
