Adopted: Sydney, a 1.5 year old Black Female Labrador, who is looking for forever home.

Here is a Bio from foster family……..

"At about a year and a half, Sydney is full grown and on the slightly smaller side for a Lab. With a few drops of white snow on her back paws and a blaze under her chest, her bushy curled-edge tail, and her strong herding instinct, she could have a bit of Border Collie in her background.

Sydney is affectionate, confident, easy-going and smart.

She's happy to meet new people, gets along with my Labs, and is equally happy playing in the garden or hanging out watching Nature shows on TV. (Apparently not a Deadwood fan, though, as she just curled up next to me and went to sleep with her head on my lap.) Sydney keeps herself occupied with toys, but is not Missy Destructo. She loves tennis balls, but hasn't quite gotten the fetch idea of bringing the ball back. She has shown no interest in shoes or other stuff on the floor. Jumped up to the kitchen counter once or twice, but responds properly to the command 'no'.

Sydney walks amazingly well on a leash, heeling perfectly on my right side, and tries to herd me if I put her on the left. She doesn't bolt when she sees other animals. Even on a long leash, she never goes to the end of it, which most young Labs do until they're trained. She rides quietly in the back seat of a car. And she knows to use the doggie door.

Sydney shows the calmness and disposition of an adult dog (not a lot of raging puppy energy to work off, no lack of attention and focus - so not alot of work for her new family) . But her best new family will give her the extra intellectual stimulation, challenges and tasks to master, as these will help her reach her amazing potential as a working member of her new pack! "

Adopted: Barney, a 2.5 year old Black Male Labrador, has found his forever home.

Here is a Bio from foster family……..

"Barney is simply an amazing boy! He's very friendly, affectionate, smart and loving. He's doing great with our existing dogs, rides well in the car, and is crate trained with little whining. Barney is happy chasing a ball, energetic and playful, and is equally happy to curl up with you. He sleeps through the night, appears to be house-trained, but definitely needs work with walking on leash. Barney is very eager to please, quick to learn, and is a little sneaky about getting on the bed with you to cuddle. He has a great curiosity and independence, but also wants to be with people. In typical Labrador fashion, Barney is quite the foodie, and willing to share your ice cubes, watermelon, hamburgers, and pretty much anything else you're willing to give him. We do not have cats, but he is quite interested in our backyard lizards. There are no children in the house, but Barney is mature enough that with proper guidance and training for both kids and Barney, he will be great. He's wonderful and adorable, and will make a fantastic companion for the right active family. Barney is a near perfect buddy dog and will make many hearts melt. "

We love receiving updates on our former rescues. This is an amazing Happy Tail for Sierra (formerly Remme) !

"We adopted this beautiful girl almost two years ago and made her part of our family. She is incredibly sweet, playful and great with the kids. I have never seen a dog more obsessed with her ball and is always ready to play fetch. She has tons of energy and has gone with us to the beach in L.A., visiting family in Phoenix, hiking in Red Rock and playing in the snow in Utah. If you're busy and can't play ball with her (or her second favorite thing: rub her belly) she will just curl up next to you. Total velcro dog, follows you everywhere around the house and we love it. She's doing great and we look forward to many more years with her.
