Daisy is a very sweet and friendly pup who loves everyone she meets. If you call her over and pet her she will give you lots of kisses Daisy loves to chase a tennis ball and will even bring it back, but she doesn't want to give it up. So it's best have two balls on hand. If you are sitting on the couch, she will join you to be close. If she is home alone. she may get on the couch but normally lays on her dog’s bed. Daisy is energetic and likes to play. She sleeps in my room on a dog bed and sleeps through the night. Daisy is starting to fill out now, and isn't as emaciated as she was when she first got to me. She has no problem with stairs, and it is obvious that she has lived in a home before. She will de-stuff stuffed toys. She needs a family that is active and that will give her the love and exercise she needs. Everybody who has met Daisy has loved her.  She is a really good girl, just young and working on manners.
She is good with other dogs in the yard, gets very excited when meeting them on leash. No cats for Daisy. She keeps the fenced back yard clear of squirrels and enjoys chasing them up trees and would probably do the same with cats. She knows basic commands and is learning to walk on leash, better with an EasyWalk harness.  She is crate and house trained but does not particularly like the crate but will go in it.  She approved for ages 10 and up.

Thelma (#180162) and Louise (#180163) 

Thelma and Louise are an adorable 5 year old bonded sister pair who must be adopted together. Thelma (black), the laid back girl, is an extremely sweet and enjoys a good nap. Don’t let the white whiskers fool you, she also has a lot of spunk to go with her delightful personality. Louise (yellow), the silly girl, is perfectly happy to lounge around on a soft bed and take a few romps in the back yard. She loves head and neck scratches and attention from everyone she meets. In fact, she will give you the cutest “paw” to get your attention.

Both are house trained, are wonderful in the car, easy on a leash, and have excellent house manners! They’ve even learned to love their crate at night and will go right in all by themselves! However, they most likely can be trusted with the run of the house.

Thelma is a 5 year old black spayed female that weighs 47lbs and needs to gain a few more. Louise is a 5 year old yellow spayed female who weighs 60 pounds. Both are up to date on vaccines. 

Both are great with other dogs, are excellent in the house, with guests, and have lovely manners. They spend most days as couch potatoes, snuggles up on one of the comfy dog beds.

Update from foster, Dec 20, 2017: Too Tall is a great dog! He is not too needy and does not demand too much, as some labs are known to do. He did great on a run with the Gentle Leader. He will cuddle right up next to you but does not have the need to smother you in wet kisses or be a lap dog. He is just all around well rounded pup. He is a very strong boy. He is very curious about the front door, and you should ensure you control the doors when he is not crated as he may try to join you outside. He does not bark too much. He is house trained, and has great house manners and doesn't try to take things that aren't his. He is a great pup!

Update from foster, Dec 23, 2017: Too Tall has been settling in nicely to his foster home and is enjoying lounging and snuggling on the couch. His fosters report that he would be a great running partner as he adjusts his pace with his foster mom on runs. Too Tall recently visited the local dog park and had a great time meeting and playing with so many new friends. He is looking forward to finding a new family!

Dec 26, 2017: Too Tall is doing great. He is an amazing cuddler and is very content to snuggle up on the couch. He loves walks and his tail wag is so adorable when he’s happy. Too Tall is doing well in his Fosters Townhome.

It has healed and we're waiting for the orthopedic surgeon's recommendation for treatment, if anything can be done at this point. Drake is super sweet with people and with other dogs.

Feb 6, 2018: Drake continues to recover well from his FHO surgery 8 weeks ago. He is now using his leg almost all the time. He only has a slight limp. He is starting to play with stuffed toys. Drake is really cute when he holds his front paw up to get some attention. He continues with underwater therapy and can walk up to 10 minutes.

Junior (#180001)

Junior definitely has a clown side and makes you wonder if he is intentionally entertaining you. He is a very sweet, responsive guy. He doesn’t need to be crated: he does fine loose or would be fine gated off. He is fine with other quiet dogs, but he can be very picky about male canine companions. Junior is well behaved in the car. He is a pretty strong guy, so he will need reinforcement from a persistent handler before he is the envy of the neighborhood.

Lucy #2 (#180201)

Lucy is a very happy pup who thinks everyone she meets is her friend and wants to play with her. She thinks she is still lap size and likes to climb up and sit in your lap and get attention. She loves to retrieve and will bark to tell you to toss the ball again, so a "Chuckit" would be a plus. Lucy loves to play fetch, you rarely see Lucy without a ball in her mouth, and usually there is two. Today she realized there are other toys to play with. Now she is looking through the toy box and trying toys, one at a time. She is house and crate trained but doesn't need a crate.

She needs a family that will give her plenty of exercise and has a fenced yard for her to run and play in as walks will not be enough for this girl.

Kids 10 and up as we have no history. Good with other dogs. No cat history. Knows sit come and down. (sometimes). Will have Training Addendum as she is a young dog. Hasn't been on lead much, is better with an EasyWalk harness.

Jackson (#180157) and Lee (#180156)

Lee,the yellow, and Jackson, the chocolate, are a bonded pair of large nine year olds who were surrendered when their family faced foreclosure on their home. While they act independently of one another, they are very used to having each other around. They have lived with a toddler so are approved for kids of all ages. They do well on a leash, are experts at snoopervising human activity and do not require a fence. They both chase cats so a cat free environment is best.

Lee loves to be with you and being touched. He craves belly scratches, loves to sleep and has never gotten into trouble uncrated, so he hasn’t been put in a crate for years. Lee can be sort of a whineypants when he can’t be with you or doesn’t know where you are. Lee is not totally adept at reading dog body language. He has gotten nipped in the face a handful of times by strange dogs when he has barked in their faces. He loves to swim and isn’t too big on retrieving (too much effort) plus he prefers to play indoors or on dirt or pavement since grass seems to tickle his feet. Lee has some skin allergies that are managed with diet and medication. He is very cooperative with routine grooming, although he may look down and away as to beg you to just hurry up and get it over with.

Jackson loves to be petted, especially his tummy and rear and will thump-thump-thump his foot in perfect rhythm. He loves to play fetch and tug, but isn’t all that keen on swimming. He was a popular guy at doggie day care when he used to attend. His favorite place to watch the world go by is a wing-back chair, on the stairway landing or your front porch. Jackson does a perfect siren imitation when he hears one. He will bark at strangers, but the minute they come in, he saturates them with kisses. Jacks has some intermittent allergies that are pretty well managed with diet alone.

Lee and Jackson are both neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Lee weighs 112 pounds and needs to lose about 30. Jackson is 109 pounds and also needs to lose 30.



Rover (#180125)

Rover is a 9 year old neutered yellow male who weighs 105 lbs and needs to lose approximately 15 of them.  He is current with his shots and is heart worm negative.  Rover is good with dogs; unknown with cats; and approved for kids 10 and up.  Approved for townhomes or single family homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.

 

Rover is a good looking guy who needs some attention, patience and love as he transitions from a life as a stud dog to one as a cherished family member.  Rover is enjoying learning new things at his foster home, like the TV! He is good with the resident dogs and having fun exploring his new life.  

Foster Update: March 28, 2018: Rover's favorite thing to do is retrieving each toy that his foster folks teasingly relocate off of his bed, and comically carrying each back. He doesn't mind if his canine foster siblings join in, as Rover is a very congenial fellow. He is absolutely fine in the house when the humans are out, no crate required. Rover is a "senior gent" ISO: learning worthwhile new tricks, shadowing his human (s), to experiencing adventures with other dogs. Rover is approved for townhome living, however he is unsure of how to operate the inside stairs at his foster home (though he's great with them outside) so may just need some encouragement or prefer to remain on the main level.

Rex is a sweet boy who enjoys de-stuffing toys.  Walks well on a lead.  This handsome fella is settling into his foster home well. He keeps his foster dad & canine brother on their toes!  He is a very affectionate boy and loves to jump up in a lap for cuddling. Rex is adjusting well to being crated and sleeps quietly all night in his crate. He is walking better with an Easy Walk harness and is very alert to everything that moves on walks including birds, squirrels, bunnies, people and vehicles. He has met some of the neighborhood dogs and does great with them - even the silly poodles. He loves toys and will systematically take each toy out, play with it, then go take another out until the box is empty and foster dad has to put everything back to start over again! He's respectful of his older foster brother and won't follow him into another room if he's had enough play and needs a break. Rex is a sweet, playful pup who could use a little polishing, but he's going to be a fabulous dog! He would probably love a fenced yard to run and play in, but is doing fine getting his exercise with walks and playtime in the house.

RJ (formerly known as Taz Raymond) was returned to Lab Rescue due to a change in his family’s living accommodations.  He was well loved and cared for.  RJ is pretty darned close to perfect. He is housebroken and crate trained, although he rarely spent more than two hours a day in his crate since his mom was at home during the day. He would probably be happiest with a family where someone is home most of the day since he is accustomed to having company. RJ has been wonderful with children of all ages, but did not live with any. He loves to play fetch with both tennis balls and frisbees. He will steal socks, but he doesn't destroy them, just hoards them.  RJ rides well in a car and walks well on a lead.  On walks, he either ignores other dogs, or wants to play, but he is definitely submissive and does not carry on when he sees strange dogs. 

 

From his former owner: “RJ’s a sweety, so smart, he will nudge you with his nose or paw when he has to go out, bring you his bowl when he wants more water and would pull his leash off the back door knob when we were getting ready to go out. He's not much for biscuits for treats, he loves sweet potatoes , cooked veggies or jerky, rawhide treats do not agree with him, I give him all veggie rolls with peanut butter inside."

Sweet Suzie is good in the crate, although she does not need it all.  She loves to hang near her foster mom and is great with all her foster fur siblings and the foster's young son.  Her foster family says Suzie is the perfect dog!  This wonderful girl is so deserving of a good, pampered life.

Ana (#170306) 

Ana is a 7 yr old chocolate spayed female.  She weighs 69 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Ana is a wonderful housedog: she is housebroken and hasn’t been crated since she is trustworthy in the home- as long as counters are clear and trash is behind a door. She knows her basic commands and listens well inside, although outdoors, she may be a little too distracted to respond immediately. Ana is good on a leash and enjoys taking walks with her humans  and meeting other dogs, though she is not fond of small dogs. She hasn’t been around cats, but given that she does not like small dogs, we are going to mark her as no cats. Ana loves to swim and does retrieve, but gets a little bored with it after a while.

She is approved for ages 10 and up.

Jake (#180110)

Jake is a friendly pal who likes to follow you in the house. You wouldn't guess his age, he gets around great for 13 although he doesn't comprehend full stair cases. He is perfectly content to stay on the first floor, and has no trouble doing 3-4 steps to get outside or in the garage. Jake occasionally gets riled up and will chase a ball, but doesn't seem too impressed by the game and may just be playing for the human's benefit. He's a very good boy and does want to please. He's content laying on the floor and enjoys petting and scratching, especially his neck and ears.

He is good with the other dogs and cats. No kid history, so he's approved for kids 10 and up.  Jake is around 12-13 years old. He is current on his vaccines, and heartworm negative. He weighs 51 pounds and needs to be around 55-57.

Meli (#180124)

Meli's favorite thing in life is being with humans. She is perfect on the leash and enjoys her walks. She enjoys napping on the couch or in a padded chair by a window. She really LOVES playing with Chuck it balls. She'll entertain herself with those for a short period of time and is always eager to play fetch. She's managed to carry 2 at a time (so far). She'll play keep away rather than return them for you to throw again. She knows several commands.

Meli is approved for kids aged 5 and up. We don't have any history of her with cats. She previously lived in a town home and is fine with that lifestyle. Meli is a 9 year old chocolate spayed female who weighs 62 lbs. She's up to date on her vaccines and is heartworm negative.

Dizzy (#180148)

Dizzy is an 11 yr old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 63 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Dizzy has been a wonderful companion to his family for the last 8 years, but now he isn’t quite sure how his very active, very mobile, very vocal two year old human brother fits in the picture, so he is looking for a quieter spot to lay his head during his golden years. Dizzy is a handsome medium sized 11 year old who loves his walks, especially when interesting smells abound.
Dizzy greets other dogs politely on or off leash. He may initially raise his hackles, but quickly reverts to being the wimp that he is. He has shared his home with a feline for years and they have always gotten along just fine. He definitely prefers the company of two-leggers to four-leggers, but doesn’t take exception to other furry kids.
Dizzy loves the human body, except for hands and feet. He has always been worried by feet, probably pushed or kicked out of the way in his first years, and doesn’t care for faces, whether human or canine, up close to his- he doesn’t bite, just kind of does a grunt/growl to say he is uncomfortable. He does love to give kisses to others though.
Dizzy hasn’t been crated for years and has always had a dog sitter so he hasn’t been kenneled either. He has perfect house manners so there is no need to crate or gate him off, which is good because he really likes to hang with his people.
Dizzy likes his toys, but is not possessive of them, although he does insist on always winning a game of tug. Dizzy isn’t too keen about loud noises and tries to avoid them; if a vacuum cleaner gets too close he may bark at it. Thunderstorms don’t worry him at all, however.
Dizzy is just a gentle old soul who asks for little but who gives much love in return. Dizzy is just a gentle soul who asks for little but who gives much love in return. As is typical for distinguished older gentlemen, Dizzy has a touch of age-related arthritis for which he takes supplements, and has some seasonal foot allergies.

He is good with cats and dogs and is approved for ages 6 and up.

Cooper (#180144) 

Cooper is a 4 yr old chocolate neutered male.  He weighs 85 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Cooper is good with cats and dogs and is approved for ages 8 and up.  Here's a letter from his previous owner:
My owner loved taking me for rides in his truck. All he had to do was say "Cooper, let's go for a ride" or shake his keys and I was ready to go. One of my favorite things was my toy "Pica" who I could track down anywhere in the house if you called out his name. My other favorite is the sound of American cheese being opened in the kitchen. I have great hearing when it comes to that plastic wrapper noise. I know a lot of tricks. Sit, shake, lay down and if you lay a piece of food on the floor and say "stay" I won't touch it until you say, "good boy"! You can even say to me, "look at me" and I won't take my eyes off you even if there is some good smelling food around. I love the water and will go swimming if I get the chance. I am trained for an Invisible fence but may break through it if I see something really interesting like a deer. If I see an open door I will bolt out of it. I love kids, kittens and adult cats, especially licking them. I'm not great walking on a leash because I'm very strong. I love friendly tail wagging dogs and love to run around, wrestle and play with them. I do not like small barky dogs that get in my face.

Cooper needs a physical or underground fence.
