Adopted: Bo, a 2 year old Male Black Labrador, has found his forever home.

Here is a Bio from his foster family……..

"The first thing you should know about Bo, he's a 6 month old puppy trapped in a full size body! He is high energy, and will benefit greatly from immediate training.
Bo is very sweet, affectionate and loves to be with people. While he hasn't had much structure or attention before coming to LVLR, he is very responsive to guidance, correction, and wants to please you. He loves chasing a ball and playing as much as he loves being next to you. He still has a lot of the typical Lab puppy tendencies, being mouthy, jumping up, counter surfing and general playfulness. As his foster parents, we're working on managing his energy with routine walks, play time, re-directing behavior and crating. Bo walks well on a leash, improving every walk. He does well overnight crated and is getting better every day. Bo has been very good with our dogs, but can be overwhelming with his energy, and should be watched for correction. We have no idea how he'd be with cats, as we have none. Bo would also need supervision around small children. He's happy & playful, but isn't aware of his size or energy.
If you're considering meeting Bo, please make sure you're committed to training with him. He needs guidance, boundaries, structure, security, consistency and a strong leader to help him become the best version of Bo. He is a wonderful, happy boy, and needs a family willing to commit to his long term well-being by working on his social skills and manners."

Adopted: Marty, a 4 year old Yellow Male Labrador, has found his forever home.

Here is a Bio from his foster family……..

"Marty was saved from a local shelter. Marty is such a sweet dog! He's very calm and he hasn't even barked once since he's been with us. He is house trained and knows how to sit on command. He does well with children and loves to cuddle. Marty also does well with other dogs. Our female lab likes to be in charge and Marty has taken well to her and he lets her feel like she's the boss. Marty was a little hesitant to go into his kennel last night, but once he was in, he slept very well. He is very friendly and would be a great dog for any type of family."

Adopted: Sampson, a 9 year old Male Chocolate Labrador, has found forever home.
Sampson was rescued from a local area shelter and like all of our rescues, was given a thorough examination by our veterinary staff. It was discovered that Sampson had soft tissue sarcoma. These masses originate from a variety of soft tissue and they tend to be locally invasive with low chance of metastasis. Sampson has had surgery to remove all tumor cells, and there were no signs of metastatic cancer. He should have a check up every 3 months for the next 2 years to monitor any changes, and if there is no evidence of cancer returning, he is cancer free! Aside from the lump that has been removed, Sampson is healthy and happy.

Here is a Bio from his foster family……..

"Sampson is sturdy, resilient, strong, compliant, energetic and curious. He is completely house trained including ‘taking care of business’ outside, not jumping up on counters, nor any interest in chewing on furniture, shoes, wires, power cords and socks. Minimal appetite for human food. Does like peanut butter. He sleeps through the night, will sleep with you in bed, but will also sleep at your bedside. He typically follows me around the house so I always know where he is. If you don’t see him, just yell “Come,” and his response is virtually automatic.

He will lick your hands and face when you show him the smallest kindness. Quite affectionate. He likes car rides and is well behaved. He is easy to crate. Just open the door and he goes right in. When he gets frightened, agitated or upset, petting Sampson and pulling him close will calm him down.

Sampson is around 100 pounds and needs to keep losing weight. He can get into a typical SUV through the passenger door but would have a hard time, currently, jumping into one from the back. When full of energy, or curious about something, he pulls on the leash. He is strong and low to the ground. Some obedience training would be very helpful here. He does not like cats. I do not have a pool so I do not know how he responds to water. His only activity so far has been walks on a leash.

Sampson will make a great companion for an individual or family interested in nurturing and playing with this wonderful canine who has a great heart. "
