Flynn is a 10 year old neutered black male who weighs 48 pounds and is good with both cats and dogs. He's approved for humans ages 10 and up. This little guy is heartworm negative and current on his vaccines. He is also townhome approved if the home is in the suburbs or a rural area. He does not need a fence. Flynn does need a little extra TLC, as his life prior to Lab Rescue was less than ideal. Read his foster family's description of this dear boy's personality and very manageable special needs.
Update from Flynn's foster family - Jul 15, 2018: We found out today that this adorable, loving senior beagledor is good on walks, respectful towards horses (although he will clean up any leftover grain) and very respectful, borderline afraid, of the fairer species, cats. He met the barn cat, lounging in a lawn chair, and approached within two feet until she hissed, at which time he looked away and, at first opportunity, walked away. He loves to chase a ball when we roll it for him and after a half dozen times, curl up next to us for scritches and strokes. Ramsey even likes him, which makes him only the second male that Ramsey has not given the "what for" to. Yeah, he's lumpy and wears belly bands inside, but he asks so little and just wants to spend his golden years surrounded by love. We'd love to keep him (since he is just like our beagledors), but Bear has made it clear that fosters are fosters as long as he is in charge.
Jul 9, 2018: Like joyful dogs? I am one happy camper; I like my naps, putzing around in the yard, playing with a ball or wubba, chewing on a bone or antler, and MEALS. I have even gotten into a few tug games with my fellow foster (sort of a ‘May-December’ relationship) and I like to follow her around to see if she finds anything cool. I love everybody I meet; I haven't been cat tested yet, but I promise to worship them if you want me to.
I love riding in the car, am great on a leash and stick with you off the leash. Fences are for kids: I don’t have much need for one as long as you are with me.
After I was picked up as a stray (read: "dumped"), I was passed off by the shelter as being 7 or 8 but the Lab Rescue doc thinks I am closer to 10-12 years young. But I barely have any of that ‘bad joint’ stuff. I am lumpy and bumpy, but they don’t cause me any grief. I have some plumbing problems, so I come with a bunch of belly bands, and sometimes I lay eggs in my sleep, but my FM thanks me for keeping them solid and easy to pick up.
I would love a home of my own; I know there are dogs who are younger, more dashing, more “labby”, more athletic and more hygienic, but please don’t overlook me because of a few involuntary indiscretions.
