What an incredible update for Sasha's Happy Tail!

"We adopted Sasha in 2013 and she is still such a sweetheart! She loves to go on morning  walks with her papillon sister Lily. She loves to swim in the pool and play fetch. We love her dearly and are so grateful to LVLR for bringing her into our lives. Thank you!"

Happy Tail: Bubba

We love receiving these amazing updates on our adopted Labs! What a lovely Happy Tail for Bubba:

"Hi everyone,

We wanted to update you about Bubba. We have had him for just over a month and he is such a good boy! He came to us with a few commands and, with the help of one of his new brothers, he has learned how to fetch, as well as swim. He still walks around with a stuffy in his mouth and never destroys them, though he loves to destroy toys meant for chewing. He continues to be very excited when new people come to visit, but has learned not to jump most of the time. Oh, and he’s such a snuggle bug! We just love him and we are so grateful to LVLR for matching us with the most perfect boy for our family ❤️"

Adopted: Thatcher, a 6 year old Female Yellow Labrador, has found her forever home.

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

"Thatcher is a gentle girl who just wants to be with you all the time. She has a spunky side that we are keeping in check right now because she was just spayed. She does retrieve well and She did sneak into the pool once so we know she enjoys water. She loves playing in the cool grass in the morning. She gets along with all of our dogs and because she is so gentle, we think she may be good with cats and kids but has not yet been tested. She sleeps through the night in a crate by our bedside but her favorite spot is wherever you are.
She is potty trained no accidents. Respectful of belongings in house, only plays with dog toys that are available to her.

Thatcher would be a great companion dog for a calm home. She needs some leash work with positive reinforcement. She sits and will lay down on command with some coaxing. She appears to have been trained to shake because every time we ask her to sit, she raises her paw.

Thatcher is ready to find her furever family!”

Adopted: Ollie, a 2 year old Male Yellow Labrador

Adopted: Ollie, a 2 year old Male Yellow Labrador, has found his forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster home:

“Ollie is a sweet, energetic and fun-loving two-year old yellow lab. He is extremely friendly with humans and other animals. He loves to play with toys, fetch, explore and seek out new adventures. He likes to be active, but also understands when it is time to relax and calm down.

Ollie is gentle and very loveable, seeking out attention from people. He is friendly and curious about everything, including the sights and sound of the television. He loves petting and if invited will snuggle on the sofa or bed. He can be a little timid at first with new adults, but quickly loses that. He absolutely loves everyone, gets super excited, but not out of control. He seems to always have a smile on his face.    

Ollie knows many basic commands such as, “sit”, “down”, “come”, “stay” and “wait”. He is working on the others and is quick to learn. He is crate trained, and sleeps through the night. Sometimes, he seeks out the solace of his crate when he is tired. Because of his excellent behavior, has been given supervised “free reign” in the house. He is potty trained and learned to use the doggy door in a couple of days. He loves independence but does need to be reminded occasionally to go out. He is learning to walk properly on the leash and needs to be reminded to focus.He is excellent at fetch, bringing whatever object back quickly,and either dropping it at your feet or letting you take it from him.  

Ollie has done well with our five-year old black lab, benefitting from having a more mature dog to show him what is expected. They play like brothers and Ollie is quick to understand when he gets over excited. We have not seen any indication of prey instinct, only curiosity with other smaller animals and sounds.  

Ollie is a very happy and well-behaved boy. He would be a great family dog. He is young and could benefit from continued training. He has energy and will definitely need an outlet for that. He will do well in any home, including those with children and other dogs. This sweet and loveable boy is ready for his forever home.  “
