My friend "Lab Lady" from Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc. introduced me to a new friend this week.  WOOF!

Are you looking for an older dog?  Maybe a senior dog that has lots of love to give but isn't as active as a younger dog?

Meet Champ! A 9 year old neutered, 80 lbs. male Yellow Labrador Retriever. Champ is looking for a companion and a "Forever Home" where he can enjoy a slower, quieter life!   He likes to take things slow and steady and is a calm, cool and relaxed. He appears to have some arthritis in his legs/hips but he is moving around more and doing well after receiving some treatment for it.

Champ is good with other dogs but don't know about cats! He is approved for children aged 10 and up.
