Adopted: Finn, a 3-4 year old Black Male Labrador, found his forever home.

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

"After some time in the rescue with foster homes, we reassessed Finn's projected age. With help from our vet and an experienced trainer, we believe Finn is actually closer to 3-4 years old, rather than 7 that we were originally told. As always, there are a lot of different factors that go into guessing an age of of dog, and we feel the re-assessment is far more in line for Finn's energy level. We decided new pictures and an update would help people see Finn more accurately.
Finn is a very energetic, active lab with a lot of love to give. He has an incredibly friendly and goofy temperament, and he gets along great with other animals and people. He would make a great companion for anyone who is looking for a friendly, lively addition to their family. Finn is a larger dog, he knows sit and does very well on a leash and is am absolute joy to walk. He will easily go into his crate and stay inside, but becomes anxious when left alone in the crate at first. We're working on him being more comfortable in a crate. Finn will be a great companion to an active family looking for a big, friendly love. He does best with strong leadership, structure & boundaries. Finn is very smart, will need to continue training, and wants to please his humans. "

Adopted: Rocky, a 5 year old Male Black Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

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

Please read carefully!
"Rocky is looking for a special family to call home. Rocky has been diagnosed with Canine Epilepsy, and will need medication to control/minimize future seizures. Epilepsy isn't curable, it's simply something to manage in a dog's lifetime. Rocky is a sweet, energetic Lab that loves being with people. He is very loving and affectionate, but needs work on being left alone. He is friendly with children, other dogs and learning to ignore cats.
Loves to be active, walks, playing fetch, going for rides. Rocky currently doesn't like being crated, but we're continuing to work on making a crate his safe space. Rocky would do great with a family with older children, and one that understands he's needs managing his epilepsy."

Adopted: Nala, a 2 year old Female Yellow Labrador, who is looking for her forever home.

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

"Nala - Simba's travelling companion, also came from Beijing, China. She too was rescued by Goldens without Borders, an organization dedicated to saving dogs from the meat trade industry.

Nala is adapting well to her recent whirlwind - a 6,000+ mile Pacific crossing, rescuers befriending her, medical/dental procedures, new home, playmates, people, sounds, smells, language - all of it!

She's sweet, lovey and curious. She entertains herself with a tennis ball when no fetch partner is around. She's a dainty eater, but goes with gusto at a sacrificial sock or stuffed toy. Happy to hang out and relax with the pack, she will let you know when she's bored and needs a little entertainment. She's mostly good being crated, uses the dog door comfortably, and rides very well in the car. Nala gets along with my two Labs and wants to try out the pool but it's off-limits until her spay stitches are removed. She only barks when appropriate. Nala responds to a quiet NO or AH, and learns quickly.

It doesn't appear that she's had any training, which fits with the path of her life until now. She is smart and very much wants to please, and we're working on SIT and STAY. I've had her for 4 days and already see progress. She's not quite house-trained either, but the repetition of sending her through the dog door every 2-3 hours and encouraging her to take care of business, is starting to take hold.

She's strong, young and energetic, so families with smaller children should be aware. I haven't seen her around children, or cats for that matter, but based on her personality, have no reason to believe there would be an issue. That said, the safety of both the children and the dog are of primary importance.

Nala's like a sponge who really wants to learn. An active family committed to giving her the guidance, boundaries, love and exercise she needs will be rewarded with an excellent companion, a most loyal friend and a great cuddler too! "
