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

Do you love Labrador Retrievers? Those incredibly, pawsome, handsome, intelligent, yet playful and fun, charming and magnificent and brave and strong, well, like me you know? Well, I'm not available for adoption, my friend "Lab Lady" has quite a few Labradors for you to choose from-

Meet my friend Milo- what a pawsome face, huh? barks!
(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.
Milo is around my age, 8-years old, and is one of the handsomest greatest breed of dogs you can find, Black Labrador Retriever. Yes, you know I know!  

Milo is one laid back dude who totally ignores his fosters cat and is great with the dog too!  WOOFs! He does pawsomely well on walking on a leash.  Barks, he knows he gets fed after a walk so he will bark at his foster mom if she's not preparing his food quick enough- which she thinks is really cute- am getting an idea to try this on my human! 

Milo loves Nylabones, and watch his pawsome happiness here- Milo and NylaBone!  He seems to enjoy water so he might like to go swimming too.

One cool, and sweet guy- says his foster mom,barks!- Milo is looking for a "Forever Home" with humans he can love and get attention he deserves! 

Milo came to Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc. after he was left behind in an apartment when his previous owners moved.  Despite this, he is doing pawsomely well.
Mile is good with other dogs,  Barkingly, he has no history with children so he's approved for ages 10 and older.

Friday's Friend! Dog Adoption, Operation Paws for Homes

My friend "Miss Ashley" is one pawsome young lady- she has been pawfully busy with many humans tasks of life but always has the barks to share about a dog needing a "Forever Home." She loves what she does- Paws!

I'd like you to meet my friend Mary Kay, a pawsomely adorable 3 month old,Yellow Labrador Retriever mix. Isn't she just the cutest thing? WOOFs!
"Mary Kay"
(C) Operation Paws for Homes
Mary Kay is pawsibly the youngest pups I've introduced to you over the years that I've been writing about dogs and cats needing "Forever Homes!"

Since she is so young and small, Operation Paws for Homes recommends she goes home with a
family whose children are respectful of her size and age. Barkingly, she will require an adopter who not out of the home for more than 4 hours at one time to continue her training - Operation Paws for Homes isn't allowing exceptions to this requirement!

Barks! A special paw from Operation Paws for Homes: As Mary Kay is so young, she has only received 2 sets of the required 3 sets puppy vaccinations. This is very IMPORTANT because it means that her immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age. She MUST stay out of public places where she could be exposed to the germs of many other dogs for another six weeks after she goes home. These no puppy zones include all pet stores, dog parks, and for apartment dwellers, areas used by other dogs. These requirements are strictly for the puppy’s medical safety and longevity.

Mary Kay is up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines and will need to be spayed at the age of 6 months.

Barks! Interested in meeting this pawsome pup?  Mary Kay would pawsomely bark for you to complete the Operation Paws for Homes Adoption Application

A few weeks ago, my human had the pawportunity to meet this beautiful Great Dane and photograph her.  She was pawsome to photograph and have fun with.   And WHAT A FACE!

It's my pawleasure to introduce Nila who is visiting with the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League. Nila wanted chat with you about herself!

WOOF!!! Hooooowdy! My name is Nila, and I'm one queen bee. I love attention and when I don't get it I'll ram my head into your lap and give you just about the biggest puppy eyes. I'm getting used to having a sibling (Ripply is a boxer) and I love to play with him and we love to play chase! Sometimes I'm a little territorial over my areas but for the most part I have adjusted well to a sibling. I have also learned to love toys! Rip has taught me how to play. My favorite is a big blue bouncy ball that I'll chance down and pounce on! I love having my own dog bed but also love to have the option of snuggling with my humans. I am a 2 yr old brindle Dane/ Mastiff mix.   Wags and Paws! Nila

Interested in meeting this sweetheart of an awesome dog?  Nila can be contacted by visiting the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League.

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

Paws to you and all the volunteers at Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc. for your work rescuing and helping 37 Labrador Retrievers find humans and "Forever Homes."

My friend "Lab Lady" has been one crazy woman this week.  Am wondering if she hasn't like go crazy or something as she's laughing and chuckling and jumping for joy all at the same time- she loves what she does and since Lab Rescue had a record last week, she's delirious.  But, not so that she forgot to bring a friend for you to meet- Sophia!

(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.
Sophia is a sweetheart and cuddly girl with everything you'd want in a dog!  A pawfect 18 month old Black Labrador Retriever.

Sophia is good with other dogs but cats seem to be new to her- she way to interested in them! BARK! WOOF! meow?  She's doesn't want to chase them, she just wants to sniff and check them out- WOOFS!! she's never rough with them!

Sophia enjoys playing with squeaky toys, tennis balls, and antlers. She will play for awhile then head for a nap by your side! She thinks a kiddie pool is a giant stand-in water dish!  WOOF!!

A bit shy when she first meets strangers, Sophia usually warms up within a few seconds or so, then her tail starts wagging like pawsome!

Sophia sleeps through the night in her crate and is good while her foster home works!

Sophia is an exceptional dog looking for exceptional humans to have fun with!

Approved for children ages 10 and up.

Friday's Friend! Dog Adoption, Paws for Seniors

This week has been pawsome, not only meeting many dogs needing "Forever Homes" but getting to meet a very special dog from Paws for Seniors named Toby!
(C) Paws for Seniors

Why is he so special? Barkingly, he has had a bit of a rough life- he is known as Tripod Toby as he had to have one leg amputated after being hit by a car and pawsibly in a dog fight. He is healed and ready to find his "Forever Home" and humans to love! 

Toby is 8 years old, a bit shy to strangers at first but then wants to be your friend!  WOOFs!  

One of his pawsome favorite pastimes, I need to convince my human to do this with me!, is to go for a ride and go through the drive-thru to get French Fries!  

Barkingly, he likes to go for a romp in the backyard and then take a nap. 

Toby does amazing well with 3 legs but does prefer a home with no stairs.  He is pawsomely pawfect with his house manners. 
(C) Paws for Seniors

Toby isn't into cats and is selective as to who is dog friends will be, and I count it as a privilege to among one! Potential adopters will need to schedule a meet and greet with their current dog.  WOOF!  

Toby is neutered and up to date on shots.

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

(C) Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League
I love these pawsomely huge dogs called Great Danes.  They are so dignified-looking, like me, and yet know how to have fun and barkingly enjoy life, uh like me- I guess we have a lot in common.  These guys, though, are the first dogs I've looked up to as, well, they are taller than me!  WOOFs!

My friend from the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League brought by a really cool guy for you to meet this week!  Meet Leo!

Leo has had a bit of a rough start in life. He was brought to the Loudoun County Animal Shelter because of incorrect perceptions by his humans. The pawtastic volunteers at Loudoun County could let this guy go away, so they contacted the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League where they discovered his perceived issues were wrong.

Leo was given pawsome care by Loudoun and now the rescue and is one cool blossoming 10 month old bouncy baby boy, WOOFS!!, and has that puppy mouthiness going on! BARK!

Leo doesn't know his size and can be a concern around mini-humans. He would do pawsome in a home with mini-humans over the age of 6 years old!

Leo walks on a leash like a dream and even prefers to grab hold it and and walk himself. That I'd love to see! WOOFs! He is reactive to small dogs - he jumps up and down. Barkingly, he is reactive to young boys on his walks.

He will go into his crate nicely- his fosters found him asleep when they came home. He is house trained too! WOOFS!

(C) Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League
Leo loves to play with toys and will steal and all stuffed animals/dollies and call them his own!  He is reactive to roughhousing so it can only be done for short periods and with toys.  He is learning the commands "leave it" and "drop." A huge fenced yard ro call his own and he can really let loose is one of his pawsome dreams.

He has a tendency, like all puppies to put anything in his mouth so he'll need constant attention.

Leo is working on his manners like jumping when greeting - he will follow your lead.

Due to Leo's young age, there will be a training requirement as part of his adoption.

Interested in meeting this pawsome character?  Please contact the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League.

Friday's Friend! Dog Adoption, Operation Paws for Homes

My friend "Miss Ashley" from Operation Paws for Homes has been having too much fun lately take care of all the dogs she sees and helping them to find "Forever Homes" and creating artistic graphics to share with humans.   She plays with them all day long and draws pictures when the dogs are tired- the pawfect life for a pawfect human!  WOOF!!

This week, she brought by a friend named "Libby" for you to meet-

(C) Ashley Drew, Used by Permission

Pawsomely cool graphic, huh!?

Lab lovers will probably love this beautiful 5 year old Chocolate Labrador Retriever girl who is looking for humans to love and a "Forever Home!"

Libby is house and crate trained so there's no need to worry messes in the home.

The "Head Dog Lady" of the house is her dream- she would do best in a home where she is the only adult dog.  She gets along with dog-friendly cats.

Libby has a great off-leash recall- though that doesn't mean you should do it in areas where you shouldn't do it like on walks in neighborhoods- she knows some basic commands!

Libby needs to go to an adult only household.

Interested in meeting Libby?  Please complete the Operation Paws for Homes Adoption Application.
