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

I have to say, we Black Labrador Retrievers are true bundles of energy, sweetness, and just about the best of dog all wrapped up in one- of course, there are other breeds that are great too- but, I'm prone to the greatness of dogs like, uh, well, er, me.  WOOF!!!

My friend, "Lab Lady" brought me a beautiful, 6 year-old, 55 lbs., Black Labrador Retriever for you to meet today-  Cookie!

(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc. 
WOOF!!  Look at that sweet face-  Cookie is an energetic and happy girl.

She enjoys meeting other dogs (I know I enjoyed meeting her! WOOF!) And, she even charmed the vet when getting a check up.

Basically, Cookie is an easy dog with moderate energy – meaning she's ready to go whenever you are!  She'll go outside or for a walk, go for a ride, and settles well in the house.

Cookie is good on a leash and is house trained. She loves men, women, kids, and other dogs.  She has no history with cats so her behavior with them is unknown.

She loves to greet humans with a big smile and when she is happy, she gives a big smile showing you her pretty white teeth! When she wants your attention, she barks for you.

Cookie would love a home where she can explore in a fenced yard and sleep in a comfy bed.

She is heartworm and Lyme positive, and on medications to begin treatment. Lab Rescue will pay for her heartworm treatment if done at one of their vets.
