Friday's Friend! Dog Adoption, Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.

WOOFS! I know you've heard the human saying "2 are better than 1!"  Though in many things, it isn't but when it comes to dogs and cats, "2 IS BETTER THAN 1!" WOOF!!  Especially when it is two bonded buddies who have been together for awhile-

My friend "Lab Lady" has been pawfully busy caring for the many Labradors she and her human friends have helped rescue, This week, she brought by Abby and Mattie, two ladies who've been friends together awhile!

"Mattie and Abby"
(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.

Mattie is a 6-year-old Black Labrador Retriever and Abby is a 6-year-old Yellow Labrador Retriever who are spayed and up-to-date on their vaccinations.

These girls love being with their humans, being petted by humans and getting all the attention, yes from humans, as they possible can get!  They love chasing a ball but Abby will normally bring it back.  They love playing in a kiddy pool too!

Mattie and Abby enjoy car rides though Mattie keeps asking if "we're there yet!"  The two were outside dogs but are now learning the pawsome benefits of living inside with humans.

Mattie and Abby are looking for a "Forever Home" where they can stretch out their paws on dog beds and get pawlenty of lovin's.  They need a yard with a physical fence, not one of those invisible kind, as Abby likes to go exploring! If she goes, Mattie will too!

Mattie is heartworm positive.  Lab Rescue will pay for treatment at one of our vets. hey are unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.  Abby & Mattie are great dogs.

Interested in dog adoption and meeting Mattie and Abby?  Please visit the Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc. to complete their Dog Adoption Application.

Pawlease note, through Sunday, Dec. 11, when you adopt a pair, you will save $100.

(C) Paws for Seniors

Paws for Seniors is looking for humans to adopt the two guys together so they can continue enjoying life as buddies!  Barkingly, they are not bonded so they find separate homes, that could work too!  BARKS!

Though Patches back knees have fluctuated to a point where they no longer pop in, and it gives him a funny walk, it doesn't slow him down from getting around and cuddling with his human whenever he can!

Patches is quite the character as he looks at you with eyes that could tell a story and probably even write a book! He is house and crate trained and get along with other dogs and cats!

Hobo is adjusting to his new life and loving every moment of it.  He loves being petted by humans. He gets along well with other dogs and cats too.   And, he just loves couch time!

Friday's Friend! Dog Adoption, Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League

(C) Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League
My friend the "Dane Dame" of Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League brought an older gentleman by for you to meet this week- Murdock!  A handsome fella, a Brindle Great Dane with natural ears and a kind, sweet face!  He will be 10 years old in December!  Meet Murdock!

Though he is an older character, he is healthy and his blood work came back good.

Murdock loves going for walks,car rides and hanging out with the dogs, cats and rabbits in his foster home.

When he first arrived at his foster home, Murdock had quite a bit of difficulty getting up and down.  BARK!  A few acupuncture sessions, some good food, and some quality supplements barkingly helped him considerably- he is a changed man! WOOF! BARK! Arf.

Murdock seems to enjoy the attention of and around the mini-humans he sees on his walks but not so much the medium sized dogs!  Though he is great with the dog is his foster home, not so much when he is leashed.

Woofsly, he has no vices or hang-ups, and loves just hanging out with his humans and the critters in his fosters home!

Murdock is generally a sweet guy, who loves to be petted, brushed and loved on! BARKS!  He will return the lovin's with pawsome Great Dane leans and gentle nudges!

He will make a pawsome dog for a human to love.  Pawlease consider opening your heart and hiome to this pawsomely grand dog!  You won't regret a minute of the love a senior Dane can give!  BARKS!

Friday's Friend! Cat Adoption, PetConnect Rescue

One of my favorite topics to share is cat adoption.  Cats make pawsome meowingly grand pets.  Almost as pawsome as dogs, er, uh, well, I am a dog so- but cats are pawsome!  MEOW!

My friend "Miss C" from PetConnect Rescue brought by a really cool fella for you to meet- Jennings!
(C) PetConnect Rescue
BARKS! er, uh, PURR!! WHAT A FACE!  Jennings has one of those faces that says, "Take me home to love and I'll love you back!"  What a handsome fella-

Jennings is about 3 1/2 months old and weighs slightly more than one of my paws, just over 3 lbs.! He is a playful fella who likes playing with bouncy toys, climbing cat trees and rough-housing with his kitten pals or taking a snooze!

He has a pawsomely sweet disposition and a meowingly grand purr motor which is in pawcellent running order!

Due to Jennings's young age, his adopter needs to be home most of the day with him or be willing to adopt another kitten at the same time- you know, to keep him company!  MEOWS!

Jennings is up to date with age-appropriate vaccinations.

Interested in meeting Jennings?  Please complete the PetConnect Rescue Adoption Application.
