Barkingly pawsome is this young guy of 10 months!  He came to Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc. from the country, so he would probably not do well in a city enviornment or an apartment/condo/townhouse. 

Bernie is house and crate trained, loves to snuggle with his human and is a true Laplab!!  WOOF!! Only way to be!! WOOF!  He is very much a people dog, loves to please and still has lots of puppy in him. And he likes attention so he will greet you with a doggie kiss!  

A super smart dog, Bernie likes to have a task.  He's been working on his training and being off leash and knows many of the basic commands!  He is naturally curious but doesn't startle easily.  

Bernie is good around kids but hasn't lived with any so he's recommended for children ages 10!! 

He is good with other dogs, is living with resident pup at his fosters and played with several at shelter, kennel and met was a hit with the neighbors dogs and children.   Bernie met a cat and was fine with it- though the cat didn't really want to play with him!!

Since Bernie was found wandering a country road, its surprising he is positive for Lyme and Ehrlichia. He is on Doxycycline to cure it. 

Interested in meeting this grand dog?  Want to learn about dog adoption?  Contact the Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc. for details.

 WOOF!!! Happy FRIDAY!!!! WOOF- I met the most pawsome young lady this week from the Washington Humane Society!

Meet Cinderella, A two-year old, 37 lbs., pocket-sized American Staffordshire Terrier mix, full of pep!

Cinderella is great to walk on a leash and is one laid back lady with manners.   She enjoys going for walks and exploring the scents she can discover then coming back to her humans lap and telling them about it!!  WOOF!!!  Even though two years old, she has some playfulness left.

Cinderella would do best in a home with humans that could take her on regular walks and then cuddle her on the couch afterwards. WOOF!!! The life!!  BARK!  

Interested in dog adoption or meet Cinderella?  You can meet her at the Georgia Avenue Adoption Center, 7319 Georgia Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C., (202) 723-5730, or visit Washington Humane Society!

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

WOOF!! WOOF!! WOOF!!!!! Bark!!! arf?  When I first met "Tico" who my friend "Lab Lady" introduced me to, I thought I was looking in a mirror- he is one cool dog and NEARLY as good looking as I am!! WOOF!!!!!

This guy is one very, very, very happy dog and loves humans!! This photo of him looks like the many times I have spent in my human's studio writing this blog and helping him with his photography!!  I have made my human so barkingly happy- despite some dog hair on the computer keypad!  WOOF!!!  Tico would like to keep you company!!!

Tico is house trained- he has his method of letting you know he wants to go out and has gotten used to a crate- he will stay in there quietly overnight or for a few hours if the humans are away!

While staying at his foster's place, he hasn't chewed any furniture, shoes, etc.  He loves to follow the humans around the house always wanting to be in the same room with them!  He starts wagging his tail if you just look at him!!

Barkingly pawsome and intriguing is his interest in wrestling with the resident big labs!  He loves to run and chase them around the backyard at full speed.  He's got a high play drive and will chase tennis balls and fetch or pull on rubber toys. WOOF!!!! WOOF!!! AND, he enjoys a good human wrestling if you are interested but if not, he likes a good ear rub just as well.

Tico knows basic commands but isn't into "stay," because he's so excited to be with you- my human would say that about me- so I don't know what's wrong with that! WOOF!!!!!

So, if you want a pawfully, pawfect, barkingly grand, 2-year old Black Labrador Retreiver, who weighs about 44 lbs., but should be up to 55 lbs., I'm not available BUT - WOOF!!!!   TICO IS!!!!

To learn more about dog adoption and Tico- please visit Lab Rescue!

About 14 weeks old, this little white with brown spots kitty loves to run, jump and play with her brother Lexus.  She is very outgoing and loves to be with humans.  Her kitten antics have her foster mom laughing!

Liberty is looking for a human to spend life with who is home a good part of the day to spend time with her, or I will need to be adopted with another young kitten (preferably my brother)!

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

BARK!!  WOOF!! BARKINGLY PAWSOME- It's FRIDAY!!!!  My friend "Miss Joanne" from Operation Paws for Homes came by to visit me this week- she is such a delightful lady- with her she brought Skippy who is in need of a "Forever Home."  Meet Skippy-
"Skippy"

She is named Skippy because she'll skip, hop, and jump her way into your heart! She loves humans so much, she can't help but jump for joy!! She is approximately 1 year old-

Barkingly pawsome is that she knows not to jump on humans, so she will sit if you remind her, but sometimes she will jump next to you so she can enjoy your smile better!

Skippy gets along great with other dogs and loves to play at the dog park.  She seems like she will get along well with cats too.  She isn't much of a barker and doesn't have the beagle howl!!

While Skippy is still learning about living in a home, she is learning about crates and when to go outside too! With your patience, she will thank you with tons of tail wagging and doggie kisses!

Skippy makes everyone smile and laugh when they saw her whole body wiggle and round house tail wag! Will you give me another reason to keep on wagging?

A very serious cuddler, Skippy will crack you up with her immediate attachment to you! She definitely will make a loyal companion for someone who wants a sweet and loving active dog.

Interested in meeting Skippy, please contact Operation Paws for Homes.


Friday's Friend! Cat Adoption, Washington Humane Society

Happy Friday!  I love introducing you to many barkingly pawsome friends each Friday that are looking for a "Forever Home." This week is no exception.  I've spent the last few days meeting fellow dogs and cats that need companions and have plenty of love to share with you!! WOOF!!!!!
"Cool Cat 'Rocky'"
Credit: Washington Humane Society
 The term "Cool Cat" was created for kitties like "Rockie!"  He's playful, curious, friendly and sweet.  He's everything you'd want rolled into one.  The cat's cat!

Rocky enjoys sitting and thinking about the world around him- maybe doing a few investigations to satisfy his curiosity-  while he enjoys his string and toy mice, he's content to just hang out too!

Hobbies?  WOOF!!!!!! They include being pet by humans, stealing warm seats from humans who mistakenly get up -

Rocky has this sixth sense - when he thinks you need extra attention, he will meowly pawsomely provide head head bumps and leg rubs appropriately as he determines are needed!

Rocky happens to be FIV+ but his status does not define him. With regular vet visits and a nutritious diet, Rocky has a long life ahead of him and will love you every minute of it. Since Rocky is a Hidden Gem, his adoption fee is waived!
