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

I love visiting with my friends who work so hard to rescue dogs and cats and find them "Forever Homes."  It's quite the challenge, I'm sure!  PAWS TO ALL OF THEM!!! WOOF!! WOOF!!!!

My friend "Lab Lady" brought the girl she is fostering by for you to meet- Luna!  She is an absolutely gorgeous woman, er, dog, as in Luna, not "Lab Lady"- though "Lab Lady" is a nice lady, arf! guess I better stop and let you meet Luna-

See, isn't she beautiful!  WOOF!!!  A 5-year old Black Labrador Retriever who weighs around 68 lbs..  Experience with cats is unknown as well as with children so she is approved for ages 10 and up.

Luna is a quiet dog. Loud noises or fast movements tend to frighten her so she must go to a quiet household in a quiet neighborhood and a fenced yard. Further, she must live with a dog. 

Luna enjoys hanging out in her foster mom's bed or on her dog bed. She loves snuggling with the resident dog at bed time! She is crate trained, but when allowed to run loose, she chose snuggling with her human and does not tend to get into stuff. 

She has perfect house manners and never barks. Luna prefers to meet one person at a time as groups tend to overwhelm her.  Barkingly pawsome, she will be practicing her social skills in the coming weeks. 

Luna was excited to see the snow, jumped around for a minute, ate a couple mouthfuls! Though hesitant in meeting new humans, she has done well during the workday with a midday visit from her new friend, the dog walker. Luna is wagging more each day and eating with enthusiasm, she is learning quite a bit about living with humans!!  

Luna previously lived chained with little shelter or care. She was one of five dogs all of whom were seized by the local authorities and rescued. She slipped out a gate during her rescue and was on the loose for two days. Through the dedicated efforts of a small group of volunteers and the Frederick County police, she was re-captured. During her two days on the loose she was seen swimming in the river and traveled a distance. With this history, tremendous care must be taken to ensure she is leashed and/or in a secure fenced area at all times without fail.
