  • Blake

    Blake is a 7-11 year old male that has been living on a farm with one family since he was a pup. However, the family decided he was too big to be inside early on and he was placed in an outside area where he had no companionship or protection from the elements. As the children grew up and moved away he was left behind to live a life of solitude in which he lived behind a 3 foot electric fence that was some 10-20 feet away from the house. The family member that decided to surrender him said that he had not been to see a vet since he was a puppy and they did not keep him inside because he did not like the doghouse, crate or being inside the house. However, after bringing him to a Tallahassee kennel we soon found that Blake really enjoyed being inside and especially loved the attention given to him by human beings and other animals alike.  As Blake was growing old he never had a playmate and as such he was not sure how to play with other dogs or how to behave indoors. He soon learned  how to play with others and how to behave when he was indoors. All Blake needs now is a family who will continue to teach him the things he did not get to learn as a pup, and will provide him with the companionship of humans and dogs alike along with all the love he so richly deserves.

    Lulubelle

    Lulubelle

    It all started with our first lab, a wonderful, beautiful black "block head" Baby Dog. She was with us for 17 years and she filled our hearts with love. We first adopted KoKo, a chocolate beauty, from LROF when she was 5 years old, we later "inherited" Ranger from our son and his wife when our granddaughter was born and they couldn't have a pup in their leased house, Ranger was also a LROF pup! Ranger was a "block" head chocolate lab who was stone deaf, he became my velcro dog who watched me constantly with his goofy smile! We lost both of our pups to cancer, KoKo at 13 and then Ranger at 8 years, too young - our hearts were broken. I knew my life wouldn't be complete nor would my house be a home without another labbie. We adopted Lulubelle, a beautiful, smart, fun loving little girl (3 years old) in July - she's a yellow "block head" and she has taken over our hearts with her sweet wa
