Our Labs Available for Adoption

The labs listed on this page are always changing. Every day labs are adopted and new labs join us while they wait for their new forever home. If you are interested in adopting one of these labs from Lab Rescue, please fill out our adoption application and send it to us online (or by fax or mail). Lab Rescue of the LRCP asks that you read about the entire adoption process before submitting your application. We often receive questions about why so few labs are approved for young children. You can read about how we make that determination in the adoption process section of the website. Please note that the website is not the most up to date source of information. Some labs may have been adopted before the website shows them as adopted. 

Lab Rescue LRCP rescues and places dogs in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and northeast North Carolina (30 miles east of I-95 and north of the Pamlico Sound). Adopters must travel to Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC, with their family – human and canine – to meet the dog they want to adopt.

If you live outside of the Lab Rescue service area and would like to adopt, please review the list of rescues elsewhere in the country, available at www.thelabradorclub.com, do a  Google search on Lab Rescue and your location, or search on Petfinder.com or Adoptapet.com to find a rescue who places Labs near you.

Benjamin (#170767) 

Benjamin or Benny as he is affectionately called is a very goofy lab wannabe. He is adorable and loves, loves, loves to play with other dogs. He is currently enrolled at a doggie day care and is having a blast playing with the other pups. All Benny wants to do is play, play, play! He loves to play with humans and loves to play with his K-9 Buddies at school. Benny is extremely affectionate and loves to give kisses. He knows basis commands as sit and down. He does ok on leash. He will need is owner to continue with his training so he can learn even more commands. Benny is eager to please and loves his humans. He is still all puppy so his owners need to exercise him on a daily basis or continue with doggie day care. Benny would love another playful dog to spend his days with.

He is fully crate and house trained and **bonus** good with cats!!

Bentley (#180234)

Bentley is a 5 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 64 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  This handsome fellow is good with dogs, but no cats for him, as he enjoys chasing them.  

Bentley has not needed to be crated while in his foster home. Bentley is friendly and loves to be petted. He is a pretty laid back pup but one who still enjoys playing and likes to retrieve. When he sits it's mostly with his back to you so you can scratch his back. He thinks playing with other dogs is fun but will give that up to be with people.  He carries his favorite toy, a black Kong, around with him.  This gentleman loves to play frisbee, go on hikes, and snuggle!

He knows sit, come and down.  He pulls some on lead, but is good with an Easy Walk Harness.  Bentley is crate trained and has run of the house when his someone is home but was crated when they were gone. Bentley would like a house with a family will give him love and attention. He needs a home with a fence as he likes to wander.

WOW! Just WOW! Bert is one of the sweetest boys I've met. So sweet and calm, super loving, and his tail never stops wagging. Foster mom says he is truly a Gem! He has settled in well and loves to hang out with his foster humans. Loves the resident dogs and is happy to hang out with humans or K9's. He will chase the kitty. Not to harm him but very curious to play and - well if kitty runs - it must be a game. One of his favorite times of the day is snack time ( if you could add a head rub to that - he would think he has found heaven). Has settled well in his crate. Will bark for a second but then settles. He doesn't really need the crate but while he is getting used to fosters home and for future use during HW treatment - we are keeping the crate as part of his routine.

Bert is good with dogs and approved for ages 10 and up.

Blackie is a 1 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 75 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Blackie is a handsome pup who is very friendly, wants to be with you and be petted. He has not had much attention in his life so he is a little rough around the edges. He is loving, wants to please and is willing to learn. He has been an outside dog since he was about two months old and is learning that life inside is pretty good. I don't think he has had toys before but is enjoying playing with kongs and nylabones. He likes treats so should be easy to train He would like a home with a family that will give him training and exercise he needs. Blackie is good with dogs but unknown with cats and is approved for ages 10 and up.

Blackie needs a fence either physical or underground.

He is very well trained and knows lots of tricks. He was a favorite of the volunteers at the shelter. He is house trained. He's looking for that special family to shower him with love and attention.

Jan 9, 2018: Brady is a great boy who is still all puppy. He will need an experienced owner who will continue with his training and provide with him with continued guidance. Brady is a smart boy who will be a great dog with a consistence solid environment. He would be great as an agility dog.

Jan 31, 2018: Brady is doing great. He gets to go to doggie day care every day which is helping him behave more and drain his puppy energy. He loves his humans and is food and praise motivated. He would love for his new family to continue with his training and show him some more tricks. He needs someone who will be able to drain his puppy energy, continue with his manners training and challenge him mentally. He is affectionate with his people.

Buddy (#180021)

Buddy is a 4 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 72 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Buddy is a big, strong, and gorgeous boy. He will need to go to obedience training to learn basic commands. Until he learns to heel, using an Easy Walk harness will help during his walks. Buddy is friendly and good with other dogs and people. We don't have any cat or kid history, so he's approved for kids 10 and up.

Jan 18, 2018: Buddy has had a chance to run around in a fenced yard and burn his energy. We have learned that he knows how to sit and give paw. He has a nice disposition and wags his tail because he's so happy to see you. He is housetrained and waits to be let out of the kennel to do his business outside. Buddy is strong on the leash. He seems a little interested with the cats at the vet's office, so maybe no cats is a good choice.

Buddy #2 (#180235)

Buddy is an 18 month old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 67 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative. Buddy is a very happy pup who thinks everyone he meets is his friend and wants to play with him. His tail never stops wagging! He likes to retrieve toys more that balls. He has a good nose and found the cookies in no time and took them gently. Training will probably come easy as he is motivated to please and loves cookies. He is a little mouthy but sticking a toy in his mouth stops it. Buddy loves to run and run so will need a family that will give him plenty of exercise and has a fenced yard for him to run and play in as walks will not be enough for this boy.

Buddy is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.  He needs a physical or underground fence.

Cannoli (#180240) 

Cannoli is an 18 month old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 51 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Cannoli is a friendly pup, he is a little hesitant about meeting you, if you take it easy he is fine. I think it's because he has gone from his home to a shelter then to us. He loves to get attention, be petted and to give kisses. He likes to play with toys and retrieves them sometimes. Cannoli would love an active family that has time and energy to give him the exercise and training he needs. Have your folks come meet he is as sweet as his name.

Digby (#170714) 

Digby is a 1 yr old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 68 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Digby is approved for kids 10 and up. 

Digby is a very, very smart, focused dog. He will do what he thinks is a good idea if not given constructive, positive input. He has progressed very well in a lot of areas (manners) and seems to be familiar with life in a house. We have worked hard with Digby on his "containment phobias" and he is doing well in a crate but would probably thrive the best with someone that is around a lot. He loves to play with other dogs and people. He is good on leash when walking. Digby is the kind of guy that would do great if he had a job, like agility, and may do well with a runner or avid walker, not because he is overly energetic but because he does best if he has a reason and purpose in his life. Digby is not the guy for a first time dog owner but would do great with someone with experience that can guide him give him positive reinforcement.

Update from Digby's Foster Family - Feb 22, 2018: Digby is back through no fault of his own. His adopter had a severe allergic reaction. Digby was not crated with his adopter as they worked from home and we are having to "retrain" Digby on the crate because he is not a huge fan but we will get him back in to the habit. Digby really needs an adopter who can give him focus. Maybe a runner or someone who wants to do agility with him would be awesome! He would also love someone who was home more than not to limit his time in the crate. He is such a super sweet guy and loves other dogs. He will make the right someone very happy! 

Update from Digby's Foster Family - Mar 13, 2018: Digby is making great progress at his foster/trainer. We are working hard on his comfort level in a crate but if he had an adopter that was home a lot he would not need the crate much. He is looking for someone to keep him focused and occupied as he has a busy little mind but if he is exercised and stimulated properly, he can also be a couch potato and just chill with his humans, which he loves. He loves going for walks and playing in the yard with his foster buddies See him play on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBUp75yFv9M

Easton (#180033)

Easton is a 7 yr old chocolate neutered male.  He weighs 69 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.  Easton is a sweet boy. Easton was great with the 5 dogs he was surrendered to the shelter with.  He's looking for a special family to take him in and love him furever.  More to come on Easton as we get to know him.

Feb 4, 2018: Easton is an affable and affectionate 7 year old chocolate boy who is enthusiastic about everything. He loves going for walks and just hearing his name prompts some furious tail wagging. He is learning the basics about being a family pet and will need someone who is willing to work with him. He is fully housebroken, though, so has learned the most important lesson. Easton is currently being treated for demodex and ear infection, which will require some medicated baths and ear care in the near term. Fortunately he is good with taking meds. He is somewhat hand shy but is beginning to understand that a hand can bring a lot of good things – treats, pats, the leash – and will now come over and request attention. He has no leash skills so needs someone who has some patience and a strong arm. He’s still in a cone while his stitches from being neutered heal, but that will come off in about a week and then his medicated baths can begin. Easton doesn’t ask for much; he loves having a soft bed to sleep on and will spend most of his day right there. He is good with the other dogs in the home, though they don’t interact much.

Emma (#170313)

Emma is a 2 1/2 yr old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 50 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Emma is approved for ages 12 and up.  Emma is a very nice dog and with some more training she will be a great one. She will have a training addendum. Will chase a ball and bring it back once in a while. She is a very sweet dog and will make some lucky family a super companion. She is house trained and will go stand by the door to go out. She was allowed on furniture and slept on the couch. She needs to be watched when alone as she still likes to chew on some things mostly paper inside and branches and pieces of wood outside. She is pretty good at un-stuffing stuffed animals. She would love a home with a yard so she can run and stretch her legs while she plays. She needs either a physical or underground fence.

Aug 16, 2017: Emma will need to continue with her training and being a young lab, will need lots of interactive exercise to tire out her mind and body. She does know her basic commands and is house- and crate-trained. She does still find things to chew when bored, so she will need to be watched. She desperately wants to play with other dogs, so she might be a candidate for a couple days of doggie day care each week. We did find out that Lucy does like the water and spent time sitting on the steps of the pool; she wasn't much of a retriever, but she wasn't afforded much, if any, interactive exercise.

Dec 28, 2017: Emma is a bouncy and energetic girl looking for fun. She loves to run around in the yard. She comes running at you but has learned to sit and wait for a treat. She also sits and waits for her food. Her focus is improving but sometimes she can be kind of skittish and loses focus easily. She gives high five and touch. Her recall is coming along. She did not recall at all when she came. She is a smart girl and gets genuinely pleased with herself when she earns a treat.

Emma needs an adopter who will continue to work with her on her cues, someone who will include her in outside activity. She has lots of energy and needs to burn that to be settled. She loves to play fetch with balls or sticks. She does well meeting other dogs. Emma is a beautiful girl who loves affection and will at times demand it if she feels she is not getting enough. Her play is a bit rough which is probably something she has been allowed or encouraged to do and is now in the process of learning appropriate play. She is definitely moving in the right direction. Because of her energy level, she will do best in a family with older children, so she's approved for kids 12 and up.

Gilligan (#170478)

Gilligan is a 2 year old neutered black male. He weighs 50 lbs but needs to gain 10-15 lbs. He is crate trained and house trained. Good with dogs. No cat history but had no reaction to the vet kitties. Approved for kids 8 and up. He's up to date on his vaccines and is Heartworm negative.  

Gilligan has hydrocephalus, a condition he likely has had from birth and that accounts for some his little quirks such as walking in circles, cocking his head, and prancing when walking.  This diagnosis does not slow this charming fella down one bit! Gilligan has blossomed well in his foster home. He loves playing in water- getting a bath, splashing in puddles, and swimming!  This sweet boy loves to get belly scratches and ear rubs.  He wiggles his way easily into the heart of anyone who meets him.

If you want to make a difference in a dog's life and be a part of a true transformation, then Gilligan would be honored and thrilled to meet you. Gilligan is looking for a patient human family who is excited to devote their time and energy into helping him forget all about his start to life. He wants to please and is so happy to receive love and attention. He adores every person and dog he meets, and he would do well with another doggie friend who can show him how awesome it is to be a young, carefree Lab! Gilligan is so excited about his second chance.

This wonderfully sweet and loving boy had a heartbreaking start to life — he was kept in a crate for the vast majority of his days with no love or interaction from his owner. Since coming to Lab Rescue, his foster family has been working hard to show him the good life. He is doing much better with his leash skills. But now he loves to run around and play, and is learning that zigzags and straight sprints are more fun than dumb ol' circles.

Gracie (#180025)

Gracie has been working hard and is ready to find her forever home. She loves to nap and roam around the yard investigating and sniffing everything. She is an incredibly chill girl. She really just does her own thing. She doesn’t bark and is fine in the crate or napping on a dog bed. She doesn’t hear terribly well, so the hardest part about having Gracie in your world is getting her attention with a cookie, or touching her, instead of using your voice. And this girl LOVES her cookies so that’s not hard at all! She meets new dogs with a happy, wagging tail and is great with everyone though will let a youngster know to please not pounce on her. She bounces when she runs, and has a sweet playful streak. She’s practically always happy! This silly girl enjoys romping in the backyard- she is so much fun to watch as she prances around.  This girl is perfect in the house!  Let this sweet blonde beauty dance her way into your heart!

Hercules (#180113)

Herc appears to be a darned near perfect foster- except for his climbing over the 4' chain link fence- but when he did shimmy over, he came straight to the front porch and softly scratched at the door. After successful cat introductions, he slept on a dog bed in his fosters' room with two cats and all had a restful night. He has been fine with the 3 foster dogs and 2 residents he has met.

Herc is great off leash but needs some work on the leash, although he does stop pulling once he has been walking for a while. He is a cuddlebug and is starting to take some interest in toys. He is fantastic in the car as well. Herc is a little worried about trucks: when a delivery came, he went straight for the door to get back inside, so we don't think he would be happy in an urban environment, nor in a busy suburban neighborhood. We have yet to hear him bark, but he will whine softly if he thinks he is being neglected when locked away from his peeps. He needs work on being crated and learning manners when on a leash. He is strong for his size. But his main goal is to please people and is extremely food motivated so training should be easy. He will require a 6 foot fence if relying on a fence to contain him.

Hercules is a 1 year old neutered black male that weighs 54 pounds and can stand to gain a few. He is up to date on vaccines. Nice dog! No surprise he was a favorite at the vet's. Approved for kids 10 and up and good with other dogs and cats.

Jenna (#180048)

Wonderful Mamma Dog (Jenna) is patiently waiting in her foster home for her furever family. This affectionate girl wants noting more than a soft bed, belly rubs and maybe to be allowed in your lap from time to time. She is great with other dogs and LOVES the foster's son - she sleeps with him most nights! Mamma is great in the crate, although she does not need it, putting herself to bed at times when she just wants to rest. She loves to go outside and mosey around the yard but is really a couch potato and just wants to hang out with her humans. An easy, perfect addition to any family!

Koko (#170329)

Koko is a 7 year old girl, who weighs 40lbs. She is up to date on her vaccinations and is heartworm negative. She will need a physical fence. She has perfect house manners and does not need to be crated. She is approved for kids 10 and up, is good with other dogs, but seems too interested in cats to live with them.  Koko loves to cuddle, long walks and squeaky toys. Koko has diabetes and needs one insulin injection each day to keep her happy and healthy.

Update from Koko's foster on March 9: Koko had a vacation foster while her foster mom was out of town and did wonderful there. "Koko was a dream to foster, even with the rain and snow! This little 40lb nugget was so chill in a new home and greeted several service men with a bark and tail wag!  Koko takes treats very gently, and loves to snooze in a sunbeam or on the couch if invited. Koko is very smart and loving!"

Oct 8, 2017: Koko is playful, affectionate, smart as a whip, and loves long walks and car rides. She is perfect in the house, and is not crated. Koko needs a fenced in yard only because she will not poop on a leash, though her foster family is working with her on that and she's making progress. A few weeks ago she was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus but one simple insulin injection daily has restored her to her normal, exuberant self. Koko does fine in an end unit townhouse with a ton of activity and traffic and rarely barks unless someone comes to the door. She would probably be best as an only pet but can and does live with another dog whom she has learned to trust. Koko is good on walks and loves to say hello to the neighbors. She does not like meeting neighborhood dogs face to face but is fine sitting at a comfortable distance when her people are chatting with another dog owner. 

Update from Koko's foster on Aug 21, 2017: KoKo is a dream in the house and a smart, affectionate girl who only wants to please and get belly rubs in return. She loves to go for walks and could jog with you but also fine hanging out and watching a little TV and cuddling. She's great in the car and would love trips especially those involving water. Baby pool in the back yard works in the mean time.

Leo (#180184)

Leo is the George Clooney of labs- stocky body, large paws and strong otter tail. He is a velcro lab to the extreme and will follow you everywhere. He's working on his leash manners and enjoyed his three mile walk. He has a great sit and even better kisses. He rides well in the car. He prefers his canine pals to on the calmer side so he would not enjoy dog parks or doggie play dates. Leo is incredibly sweet and has no idea that he is a "retriever" of any sort..but he's a good boy.

Lizzie (#170395)

Lizzie is a beautiful girl looking for a quiet household without a lot of folks coming and going because she's not a fan of commotion. Her energy is moderate to couch potato. She will need someone to take her on walks to help keep her weight down. When she goes outside to do her business, she comes right back in after she's done. She knows sit, down and come. She sleeps through the night and is house trained. Lizzie is shy, but if you're patient, she warms up to you. She likes other dogs and is good with cats. Lizzie is approved for kids 10 and up.
Lizzie is a 7 year old chocolate spayed female. She is epileptic but hasn't had any seizures since she started taking medication last summer. The medication costs $18-25 per month. She weighs 79 pounds and needs to lose at least 10. She is quietly and patiently awaiting her forever home.

Update from Lizzie's foster: Lizzie loves car rides and taking a nice 2 mile hike on the trails and in the woods almost every day. Lizzie gained a little weight over the holidays and is working on getting her girlish figure back. She loves to sleep in bed with her Foster Mom, and after a quick potty break in the morning she will nuzzle in for a longer cuddle in bed. She loves to curl up in the dog beds.

Luke (#180002)

Luke and her (yes, she’s female) four brothers and sisters were surrendered after their family lost their home. Luke does just fine with other quiet dogs, male or female, but she doesn’t care too much for the high energy in-your-face dogs who don’t believe in personal space. She is mellow and affectionate and loves to be touched by human hands. She doesn’t need to be crated: she does fine loose or would be fine gated off.

Luke is a pretty good passenger. She just sits back, occasionally looking out the window. She does okay on a leash but does much better once she is comfortable with her person and surroundings. Good with other calm dogs, unknown with cats, approved for age 10 and up. Luke is a 12 year old black female who weighs 51 lbs, up to date on vaccinations and heartworm negative.

 Update from Pokie's foster on Aug 28, 2017: This sweet boy has at least one baby with him at all times (literally at all times).  Pokie has been patiently waiting for his forever family for almost a year.

Quincy (#170582)

Quincy is a 9 year old neutered chocolate male who weighs 93 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heartworm negative.  Quincy would prefer not to have any canine or feline companions; and is approved for humans 18 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes and townhouses in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.

 

Quincy is a big boy who will be your chocolate shadow. He knows how to sit and give paw (and high five!) and he loves meal time and cookies. If you have trouble staying on schedule, Quincy will remind you when it's dinner time! He chases cats and wants to be the only dog in the family. He is not comfortable in big crowds and it takes him a bit to warm up to new people. He will be happiest in a home with adults only. Quincy walks beautifully on a leash, and sleeps quietly on his dog bed at night. Quincy does not need to be crated, but since he’s a velcro dog, he’d like someone that is home more than not. His ideal forever family would be in a quiet neighborhood and where he can be the center of someone's world.


Update from Quincy's foster on Nov 7, 2017: Quincy loves his humans and his cookies and is looking for a family where people are home more than not, so he can have company, as well as someone to go on a short walk with him. He loves short walks. When at home, he enjoys playing with stuffed animals, and loves chewing on antlers. He is a great Velcro companion. This is an easy dog who can't understand why he hasn't found his forever family yet. 

Jan 23, 2018: Adoptable Quincy loves the weekend, and loves this beautiful weather we've been having! He loves running around chasing his toys, and then taking a nap (in front of the space heater on the colder days). He would like an adult-only home, with humans that are home more often than not, as he loves his humans. His life wasn't so great before LRCP, so he is slow to trust, but will be a very special companion if you earn that trust.

Scrappy loves his people and greets you with the biggest smile. Watch him show off his "come" here.

Foster update: Scrappy has made great improvements this week! He walks on leash with an easy walk harness without pulling at all. Watch Scrappy show off his leash skills.  Amazing! He knows to run to his crate and sit inside when it is time to eat. He is a super sweet boy and loves to cuddle on the couch.

Scrappy acknowledges other dogs barking at him on walks, but does not react. He doesn't chase squirrels but loves to chase the other dogs in the dog park. This boy is so smart and loves to learn.

Watch Stevie play!

Apr 6, 2018: Stevie is a sweet, smart, handsome boy. He loves to play outside and go for walks, but is also content to curl up by your feet inside. When walking, he sometimes pulls a little on the leash if he is excited, but quickly settles into a nice walking pace. He is house trained, but is not particularly fond of his crate, which is no problem at all as he has excellent house manners and has not needed to be crated overnight or when his foster family is out during the day. He loves belly rubs and greets people and other dogs with a wagging tail. Stevie takes treats with a very gentle mouth, loves to ride in the car, and is making progress with basic commands such as "sit" and "down." He is very bright and will learn quickly from a consistent and patient family. Stevie is blind in one eye and has limited vision in the other, but this doesn't slow him down a bit. He uses his sharp nose and keen hearing to quickly adapt to his surroundings. He also likes to stay close to his humans and listens intently to the sound of their voices and footsteps. Stevie would love a forever home with a family that will give him all the love and cuddles he craves. He will not like to be put in a crate or left alone for long periods of time. Another young dog to romp around with would be a bonus, as Stevie enjoys playing with his canine companions. Open stairwells in the house should be gated to provide the safest environment for Stevie, but this is the only adaptation he seems to need, as he sees everything else with his nose, ears and heart.  Watch Stevie Play and play some more

Mar 22, 2018: Stevie may be vision impaired, but it doesn't stop him from playing hard. He loves, loves, loves to play with other dogs. I can't say enough good things about this sweet pup.  Watch him play here

Mar 19, 2018: Stevie visited the eye doctor today, and he has a mature cataract in his right eye, as well as retinal degeneration in the left eye. The doctor thinks that this was caused by trauma, by some old injury. He is not a candidate for surgery and eventually, he will lose his sight in the left eye, too. However, this Stevie is a character. He is so personable and outgoing, and if you have treats, he is your best friend. He takes them gently and has kisses for everyone. He did great meeting my cat and when she rubbed up against him, he just wagged his tail faster. He slept on one of the dog beds all night without making a peep., and he played endlessly with the young resident female. He met the older male lab who is also blind, and they did well. I love this boy!

Mar 18, 2018: Stevie is checking in this beautiful afternoon after spending time outside playing with the younger resident dog and trying to figure out how to get to the chickens that make fascinating sounds. He is excited because tomorrow he goes to the eye doctor to figure out why he appears to be blind in one eye. More news on that tomorrow. Stevie is wonderful meeting other dogs and humans. We'll see what the cat has to say later today.

Mar 14, 2018: Stevie is a fun, energetic boy!! He gets along with every dog and person he’s met though the (older) resident pup thinks he’s a little too playful sometimes. He has some vision impairment but that doesn’t slow him down. He went right into his new foster home and found the water and food bowl right away. Stevie would do great in a fenced in yard but also loves going on walks to see and smell all there is to see. Stevie pulls a bit on leash but using an “easy walk harness” helps slow him down and allow him to be guided around obstacles he has trouble seeing and would bump into otherwise.. He acts totally housebroken with no accidents so far. Stevie has run of the house but spent his first night crated since he didn’t want to go to sleep and kept wanting to play with the resident pup. He wasn’t a big fan of the crate and whined a bit at first but eventually dozed off.
