Bodie (#170089)

Bodie is a 6 yr old neutered black male.  He weighs 51 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs and cats and is approved for ages 10 and up.  Bodie is a little shy when he first meets someone new but fine after that.  He likes to be with you and get petted and enjoys going out for walks.  Bodie is an indoor pup but loves to go outside and play. He spends his days on the couch waiting for his humans to come home to play.  He is a quick learner and can easily be trained.  He has shared space with an 11-year old lab and two kitties for the past seven months and they are great friends.  He even lets the cats eat out of his bowl.  The cats will grab his tail when he wags it and he doesn't care.  He has free roam of home.  He goes out and gets the paper every morning (we showed him once and now he does it by himself).  He has free roam of the front yard when we are outside.  He loves riding in the car.  Sometimes he grabs something of ours and runs off with it to the other room and when you try to get it he likes to play tug and play growls. He needs a home with a family that will give him love and attention and has a fenced yard for him to play in.  He will make some lucky family a wonderful companion.

Nina (#170044)

Nina is a black spayed female who is one year old and weighs 49 pounds. She is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages ten and up. She is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. This petite girl was stray to the shelter but somewhere along the way she learned excellent house manners. Little Nina needs a single family detached home in the suburbs or a rural area with a physically fenced yard so she can play and run.

Updates from Nina's foster family - Feb 3, 2017: Nina will thrive in a home where she can wear the crown or as a single dog. But with those big brown puppy dog eyes, its next to impossible to turn down any requests she has. She's a young playful pup who can hold her own wrestling with her 90 lb foster brother, but she also entertains herself with toys or by chewing on bones. She'll ask you to play tog o' war and roll over for belly rubs too. After a playful romp, she'll curl up for a well deserved siesta. Nina takes a while to warm up to strangers and will be happiest as a homebody. She has wonderful house manners and doesn't need to be crated. 

Jan 27, 2017: Nina is a 1 year old, dainty little princess who loves to be within a paw's reach of her people. She has lovely house manners and kindly asks to go out with a paw on your knee. She knows her commands and will come, sit, lay down just for the praise, no treats needed! Nina is bit skittish in new places and takes a second to warm up to strangers but would love to make your house her home. When she's not snuggled into a petite little ball of fur she holds her own playing with her brute of a foster brother - then goes right back to snuggling and asking for belly rubs. 

Jan 23, 2017: Nina is a happy, smart, high energy, and gentle girl. She is affectionate, but does not lick. She likes to cuddle, sleep beside you in bed, and likes kisses on her head. She is housetrained, and she will let you know she needs to go out by putting her paw/leg on you and pulling, as if to say: Lets go! She has not been crated, she has had the run of the house with my 3 dogs. She is a typical high energy, young dog. She has become wrestling playmates with my Chi/JRT boy, and Nina does not hurt him, she rolls over and lets him be the big guy. After a 15-20 minute wrestling session or some fetch time outside, or some tug-o-war while watching TV, she is then content to lay down. She likes to be wherever you are - in the floor next to a recliner, in the kitchen floor while cooking, or relaxing beside you in bed. She prefers squeaky toys over tennis balls. She did fine walking on the leash. Nina knows how to sit. She needs room to romp and play and run. She can be shy in new situations and when meeting new people, but she warms up fast. 





Tinsley (#170069)

 

Tinsley is a 2 year old spayed black female who weighs 51 lbs.  She is current with her shots and is heartworm negative.  Tinsley is good with dogs; unknown with cats; and approved for kids 5 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes or townhouses in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.  Home must have a physical fence.  

 

Tinsley is a very cute, pocket size lab.  She can be a little shy at first but warms up quickly.  Tinsley is a low energy dog who loves to lie by your side or cuddle up beside you on the sofa.  She has never been crated but has great house manners so it really isn’t necessary.  Tinsley is used to having someone home all the time so she would do best in a family where everyone is not gone for long workdays.   This lovely lady sits and waits politely for her meals and sleeps soundly through the night (preferably with her human).



Jingle (#160811)

Jingle is an 18 month old neutered black male who weighs in at 55 pounds and is good with kids ages 8 and up. He is good with dogs and unknown with cats.  Jingle must go to a rural or suburban single family, detached home. He is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. 

Update from Jingle's foster family - Jan 10, 2017:

Jingle has been doing great since arrival at his foster home. We have slowly introduced him to 2 Labs, 1 Walker hound and a Jack Russell and he has made friends with all of them. He loves to play tug of war with other dogs and chew up stuffed toys. He should NOT be crated because it makes him very anxious and he will bark and try to get out so he can be with you - but no worries he doesn't need crated because he is a very good boy free in the house alone with other dogs as long as you don't let the garbage can within his reach- he loves coffee grounds! He is a loving and attentive boy who will fall asleep at your feet or in your lap if you invite him onto the couch with you. He is not a big fan of staying outside to play in snow, he would rather lay on his dog bed by the fireplace. He knows sit, shake and down and walks pretty nicely on a leash. Jingle would probably do best in a home with another dog or with someone who is home a lot. 



Ebony (#170066)

Ebony is an 8 month old spayed black female.  She 42 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Ebony is approved for ages 10 and up.  Ebony is a pocket-sized girl with beautiful, big eyes.  She's a bit shy at first, but she does warm up slowly.  Ebony wants that furever family to give her lots of love and attention.

Update from Ebony's foster family - Feb 7, 2017:

Another day, another snuggle. You too can make your very own Ebony sandwich if you adopt this adorable girl. She knows sit, and will sit when asked, before all meals, and for you to put her leash on. She is house trained, and oh, did I mention she likes to cuddle? Humans or dogs, this girl just wants to curl up in a lap. And when she's not snuggling, she runs and romps and plays like the puppy she is. Today she discovered the toy bin and thinks squeakies are the best. She sleeps through the night, goes into her crate for a treat and is such a quiet girl. She was initially unsure if the stairs, but figured them out in just 24 hours. Ebony is curious and smart, and so full of love! 

Feb 5, 2017: Ebony was sprung from the vet and arrived st her foster home this afternoon. She rides like a dream in the car. After a quick dinner, she happily met the resident dogs and then curled up on the couch for a cuddle with the pack and a nap while foster mom watches the Super Bowl commercials. She's shy and cautious at first, but responds quickly to a soft voice, sweet affection, and maybe some yummy treats. Ebony is so quiet and sweet - we can already tell that she's going to make a wonderful addition to some lucky family. 




June (#170068)

June is an 11 month old spayed black female who weighs 56 pounds. She is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. June is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up. She must go to a detached single-family home in a rural or suburban neighborhood and must have a fenced yard.

Update from June's foster mom - Feb 6, 2017:  June is smart as a whip; very playful; happy; affectionate; and curious. She loves all toys and to retrieve and just spent her first full day in a very large crate in the living room with her foster brother when foster mom went to work. She sleeps in bed with her foster mom and runs up and down the stairs to check on her foster brother on the main level in the morning. She is a young girl and needs consistent training. She needs a fenced yard and diligent humans and she will try to sneak out doors when you open them. She is working on her leash manners and walks best on an Easy Walk harness. She is also working on sit. 

Feb 2, 2017: June is a beautiful young pup looking for her new forever family! June is a great, friendly girl. She definitely is still a total puppy. Like all young dogs she will benefit from going to an obedience class. She really is a wonderful dog. She loves to play and have fun. She likes to give kisses. June loves other dogs and did well with her dog test at the shelter. No cat history so cats are unknown. No kid history so approved for kids 10 and up. 



Harpo (#160067)

Harpo is a handsome 62 pound neutered chocolate male. He's about ten years old, and like many a senior this guy prefers limited steps and the chance to sleep in.

Harpo is unknown with cats, good with dogs, and approved for ages ten and up. He's heartworm negative and current on vaccines. Harpo walks well on leash.

Update from Harpo's foster family - June 6, 2016:

Harpo continues to be a wonderful house guest. He loves to lounge around and a little bit of fetching action in the yard. He is a sweet gentleman with a few age-related challenges, but for the most part he is a wonderful companion who is generous with kisses and appreciates all the love that he can receive.

Update from Chester's foster family - Feb 4, 2017:

Chester started off life without a lot of indoor experience and is adapting pretty quickly to being a family pet. There are a lot of new things like walking on pavement and going through doors that are new to him but he's getting the hang of it. He's a little bit timid at first but soon his puppy enthusiasm and curiosity get the better of him. He loves to play tug of war with his foster sibling and wander around the yard. He grabs all his favorite toys and takes them to his bed or into his crate for safekeeping. He does seem to be crate-trained and goes in there on his own sometimes.

Seven is a sweet little guy with an amazing personality.  He loves everyone and has a constantly wagging tail.  Seven was found with an injured leg.  Because he has nerve damage in the armpit area, the leg cannot be fixed.  It may need to be amputated in the future and if that is necessary, Lab Rescue will cover the cost if the procedure is done at one of their vets.  Currently, however, the leg doesn’t seem to bother Seven or hold him back.

Chavvah is an 8 yr old spayed chocolate female.  She weighs 52 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Chavvah is approved for ages 7 and up.  Chavva, one of a dozen seniors that we have, will turn 9 on 1/27 and it is her wish to have a new family by then.  She was a favorite at the vet's and it took us less than 24 hours to realize why: this former puppy machine is sweet, joyful and an easy keeper. There were no accidents in her first day, which is super for a dog who has spent her life outside.  She has checked out just about every toy and bone in the dog apartment, which she shares with 2 elderly distinguished gentlemen.  She play bows to them and tries to engage them, but so far, she has only been allowed to run alongside one of them while he chases HIS ball.  Chavva did steal the ball once but after she got the furrowed brow and 2 grunts, she didn't touch it again.

Update from Hunter's Foster Family -  Dec 16, 2016: Hunter #7 finds himself in need of a new forever home through no fault of his own.

Chase would love to go to a home with another energetic dog he can play with. Chase is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. He needs a home with a solid fenced in yard, no invisible fences. 

Update from Chase’s Foster Family -Dec 9, 2016:

Chase has been in obedience training and has learned to sit, sit and focus, down, touch, and is doing very well on his recall. He is a smart boy and learns very quickly. He doesn’t know how to play. He likes to chase sticks and balls but once he gets them he loses interest very quickly. He would stay outside all day and night if you would allow it. Chase is totally food driven but also responds well to affection. He's still working on crate time and he would prefer not to be crated but will eventually settle down in there. Chase will do best with another big dog who can play with him at his level. Last week he spent time with a Great Pyrenees (165 lbs.) who was very calm and big enough that Chase could not bossy him around. They played well together after the GP set the boundaries. Chase benefits from that playtime with another dog. Chase is making very good progress but still has many things to master. He is entering the learning stage where he is thinking about his actions and is beginning to make appropriate decisions. He likes being a good dog. He will need to continue with his training in his new home.

Sophie is a beautiful lady looking for a place to live out her golden years in luxury.  She has a bit of trouble hearing, so visual commands work better for her.  

Update from Sophie's foster - Dec 15, 2016:
If you are looking for a sweet mature dog with no annoying habits and lots of love to give, look no further! Sophie has been a delight since coming into our home. She is sweet and loving, loves short walks and is quite happy napping by your feet or watching you putter in the kitchen. She can be trusted to roam freely when you are out and will welcome you back as many times a day as you enter the door! She has been great with children and human visitors of all kinds. 

Update from Sophie's foster - Dec 26, 2016:

Sophie's vacation foster is eager to report that Sophie has mastered all of the essential commands: love-your-human, eat-the-pretzel, snuggle-on-the-sofa, and eat-off-the-fork! Sophie rides well in the car, is good in the house, and is a loving and an easy companion!

Whiskey walks best with an easy walk harness. She will have a training addendum as she works on leash walking and recall but she already knows the commands sit, come, down and drop it.  Most likely house trained as she waits until she goes outside to go.

Woodstock (#160453)

Woodstock is a 1 year old neutered black male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs and needs to be adopted to a home with another dog to show him the ropes.  He needs a fenced yard to play in.  He's looking for a calm home and a patient family who will let him become the dog he was meant to be. He enjoys playing with dogs.

Update from Woodstock's foster on Jan 9, 2017: Woodstock's resolution is to get adopted in 2017. He's not asking for much: another playful dog, a female only household, a yard with a physical fence, and a patient and loving family who will continue helping him come out of his shell. Woodstock will develop a strong bond with his family and his canine siblings. He is a shy kid who wasn't socialized when he was young, so he continues to discover the world around him. Right now we're working on going for short car rides every day so that eventually we can go hiking and enjoy it. This is a very loving dog. Very loving. He's so sweet and gentle and I love him and the daily moments when he can act like a balanced dog and not worry about startling noises, or maybe someone hurting him. He always does zoomies at night around the living room. And then he turns in for the night. He responds when the senior canine play bows to him and for a few minutes everything is just perfect. Woodstock also knows the commands, sit, shake, down. He's very smart and beautiful! 
 
 Update from Woodstock's foster on Dec 26, 2016: Woodstock is still wishing for a forever family. He would love the opportunity to play with young and energetic dogs. Woodstock is housetrained and crate trained. When it's time to be quiet, he will sleep on a dog bed or the couch and wait until it's time to play again. He loves food and he is much more sure of his surroundings. In the right family, he will be a great addition.
