Available Seniors


Daisy #3 (#160289) 

Daisy is an 11 year old spayed yellow female who is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. This sweet senior who used to do field trials in her younger days is in need of some TLC after a rough few years. She is good with dogs but would prefer to be a solo dog or with another very submissive dog. She is good with cats and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. Daisy weighs 54 pounds. Since coming to Lab Rescue she has perked up considerably thanks to good nutrition and finally getting the veterinary care she needed. She should not be crated, must go to a home with a fenced in yard (no invisible fences) and have people who are not gone for long periods, because this girl loves company. 

 Watch silly Daisy with her new food-dispensing ball. 

Update from Daisy's Foster Family - May 24, 2017: Daisy has her moments where she will pick up the ball and all she wants to do is play fetch. She will pick it up and drop it at your feet. She sleeps on her dog bed in her foster's bedroom. She listens very well and stays until she gets released. Sometimes she likes to snuggle with her foster dad on the couch. She likes to follow her humans around to see what they're doing. She would be a great gardening partner for someone looking for a companion. This gal is a sweetheart. She would love to find her forever family. 
 
Update from Daisy's foster family - March 22, 2017:

Daisy is such a doll! She has settled in nicely to her foster home and is loving playing ball in the yard. She's a wonderful house guest and doesn't ask for much - just a bit of fetch and some love.

Dixie #3 (#170292)

Dixie is a 12 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 74 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs and cats and is approved for ages 7 and up.  Dixie is a gentle and sweet girl whose life has been turned upside down by the death of her owner. She really craves attention and reassurance, but her confidence is beginning to return and she is starting to show a little interest in exploring on her own when outside. Her hind legs are a little wobbly; she can't handle slippery floors, so area runners are needed in those areas. She is excellent on a leash and immediately responds if called, though she's rarely more than a few feet away. Dixie doesn't pay any attention at all to the resident dogs; people are what matter to her. Ideal situation for her would be a calm environment and a person/people with lots of time to lavish attention on her, few stairs and no slippery floors. She doesn't want or need a lot of exercise, so a small yard or even no yard but a few short walks daily would be OK for her, skipping dog parks which may be too much action for her.




Dottie (#170303)


Dottie is a 10 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 91 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs andcats and must go to a home with another dog.  Dottie is approved for ages 10 and up.  Dottie has been wonderful. She is a sweetheart. Dottie has been left out in the house while we were at work and didn't pull a thing out of place. She was friendly when the dog walker stopped in to let her out and was a perfect guest visiting foster grandparents this weekend. She is pretty good on leash, despite her size. She doesn't pull and seems to enjoy walks. She chased a bunny in the yard and was eyeing up some squirrels and would have chased them if she was off leash. Dottie gets along fine with the resident dog and cat. She snoozes a lot, generally on the dog bed or floor, but she has scrambled onto the couch twice. Dottie does fine in the car, no trouble or reluctance to travel. Also was a trooper when we took her to the dog salon for a bath, a little reluctant to walk up the ramp but once in the tub, she was resigned to the bath and very cooperative. Dottie is just such a sweetheart, she is super friendly, calm demeanor, and very easy going. Loves to get scratches, especially on her belly!
Update from Dottie's Foster Family - May 11, 2017: Dottie is a friendly, outgoing, and happy-go-lucky girl. She used to live in a home with other dogs, so she needs to be adopted with another dog. She is housetrained and is used to roam around in a yard. Dottie is good with cats. We don't have any kid history, so she's approved for kids 10 and up.

Update from Dottie's Foster Family - May 20, 2017: Dottie has added groundhogs to the animals she wants to keep your yard clear of. She came across a snake in the yard and was curious and sniffed it byt didn't feel obligated to confront it. . She's an adventurous gal! Dottie is looking forward to a weekend full of outside lounging (she lays in the grass when not sprinting after critters) and lots of belly rubs. 






Pokie (#160433)

Pokie is an 8 year old neutered chocolate male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  He is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. He weighs 61 lbs. Pokie is diabetic and partially blind. Pokie is a sweet and mellow guy looking for a family who can take care of him and is committed to helping him with his diabetes. All he needs is an insulin injection in the morning and one at night at regular times. In return, he will stay close to you and shower you with love.

Update from Pokie's foster on Oct 7, 2016: While he may be partially blind, Pokie has no problem getting around. He loves to play and is OBSESSED with his "babies". He sleeps with them, goes outside to go potty with them and just loves holding them in his mouth. Pokie is diabetic, but is very good getting his shots twice a day. He will happily do anything for a treat. Pokie is such a sweetie! 
 
Update from Pokie's foster family Jul 24, 2016:  Pokie is such a sweet boy. He is very friendly and loves to be with people. He has been doing well navigating his foster home and will do steps when his foster mom says "step." His foster mom reports that it is very easy to give him his insulin. Give this boy a chance and he will reward you with so much love and loyalty.
