Available Seniors

Annabelle (#180628)

Annabelle is a 10 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 57 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Annabelle is approved for ages 10 and up.  We have had awesome Annabelle as a house guest for 3 days now. Don't let her frosted face fool you. This girl has a warm heart. She loves to be petted and talked to. Annabelle has lots of energy for her age and will be able to keep up on walks or hikes. She will be a fun addition to some lucky family. She gets along with our dog and does not need to be crated.

Bear (#180616)

Bear is an 8 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 100 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Bear is centerfold gorgeous and has a demeanor to match.  He is cuddly and likes to follow you around. He is good on a leash, although he was somewhat protective of his mom; he would bark for the first minute someone came in the house, but after that, he was their best friend.
Bear doesn’t have a high exercise requirement- in fact he has a reputation for being somewhat lazy. Bear is good with other dogs, and has spent time with other family members’ small dogs and cats. He doesn’t pay much attention to furry little critters, but did get excited when birds would fly in an open window. Sudden or loud noises don’t phase this guy at all- he remains cool, calm and collected at all times. He knows the rules of indoor living and hasn’t used a crate for years. Bear was adopted as a youngster, but his adopter had to combine households with her mother and the apartment had a weight restriction that is significantly less than Bear’s weight.

Bear is approved for ages 10 and up.

Floyd (#180446) and Harvey (#180445)

Floyd (brown and white) and Harvey (black) are an older (10 and 8 years, respectively), genteel bonded pair of boys who just want to share your home. Their demands are few and the rewards are great. Harvey is pretty much Floyd’s “therapy dog”- he is the more playful, social one to whom Floyd turns to get a pulse on a situation. Harvey likes to run in the yard, but isn’t too keen on walks, and likes to fetch; Floyd is content to let Harvey do the “heavy lifting” and will meander around and just watch him play. Neither is a fan of the water, at least not pools where they can’t feel the bottom. The boys snuggle together in a large bed together at night. While Floyd tolerates car rides, Harvey genuinely enjoys them.

They have great house manners and have rarely been crated in the last two years. They know their basic commands. They would do best in a quieter home with fewer visitors: they aren’t going to be the “belles of the ball” nor are they going to be comfortable going to dog parks. Floyd and Harvey just want to complete your family.

Harvey weighs 58 pounds, is up to date on shots and heartworm negative. Floyd weighs 51 pounds, is up to date on shots and heartworm negative.

Flynn (#180327)

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. 

Henry (#170904) and GirlyGirl (#170903)

Sep 9, 2018: They are a wonderful pair of 10 year old seniors who have had a rough life. You see they lived in a multi dog household and they were bullied and had to fend for themselves so they are not too fond of others dogs. But they love and protect each other and they love people! They are healthy and playful, very spry for seniors. They are about 45 lbs each so don't take up too much room. They are house and crate trained but don't really need a crate. They are comical, funny, affectionate and would love to be lap dogs if you will let them. These sweet seniors need nothing more than a home without other dogs, a soft dog bed, TLC and your love. I KNOW there has to be someone out there that can give them that. I mean it is not very much to ask is it? If you are empty nesting and want to adopt or foster this super sweet pair, contact us today! GG and Henry are waiting!

May 15, 2018: Henry and GG (GirlyGirl) are two sweet ol' seniors who would love a quiet retirement home to live out their lives. These siblings are 10 years old. They came from a rough beginning where they (and 3 others) were not socialized well with people or other dogs. Their foster/trainer as worked really hard with them and they are LOVING people now - anyone and everyone - anyone who will show them attention and love!! They are still not fond of other dogs in their space and should got to a home with no other dogs. But that's OK, they are entertaining on their own and keep each other company!! We don't have any real cat history but on a few brief kitty encounters they did not seem to mind the cats at all. Won't someone open up their heart and home to a couple of oldsters who just want a soft place to lay their head for their golden years? they are petite at 45-50 lbs, house trained, comical and sweet! Come meet them in Amelia VA!!

May 3, 2018: Henry and GG are still hanging out, making their foster laugh and being good while they wait for their furever family. Sweet frosted faces would love a quiet retirement home! Henry and GirlyGirl (GG) are hanging out, making their foster laugh and being good while they wait for their furever family. They were part of 5 dogs that were surrendered after their family lost their home. They didn’t come from the best of situations, but they were loved.

Henry and GG love new people to visit and the attention that comes with meeting new folks. They are a bonded pair and need to stay together. They are NOT fond of other dogs and should be the only dogs in the house. They are OK to go for walks, the vet etc. They are goofy and silly and fun with each other (they are brother and sister and have been together all their life). They are super good in their crates but would be fine out of them as well.

Henry and GG are good passengers and do okay on a leash, especially once they are comfortable with their person and surroundings. Approved for ages 10 and up. They paid no mind to the cats at the vet so cats may work.
Henry is a 10 year old black male that weighs 45 pounds. GirlyGirl is a 10 year old black female that weighs 43 lbs.  
These sweet frosted faces would love a quiet retirement home!

Lester (#180335)

Lester is a 10 year old neutered black male who weighs 75 pounds. He is unknown with cats, good with dogs and approved for ages 10 and up. Lester is current on vaccines and heartworm negative but will need another heartworm test in six months, November 2018, because we don't know if he was on heartworm preventatives before coming ot Lab Rescue. Lester does not need a fence but must go to a single-family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area. Lester has some trouble getting around and will do best in a home with lots of carpeting and very few stairs. He has an injury to his left rear leg that is healing slowly. Lester does not need a crate.
