Sadly in March of 2013 we lost our beloved 13 year old black Lab Trooper. He was the best dog. We decided after a few weeks our house was lonely, and Trooper would want us to give a fellow Lab the chance of a forever home like he was blessed to have for 13 years. We put in our application to adopt with Lrrof and shortly after we were approved we got a call from Christina telling about a beautiful 15 month old male chocolate lab who's previous owners surrendered him to Animal Control for no other reason than they simply did not want him anymore.
Tank was heartworm positive, and had a bad skin condition due to flea allergies when he came to us. Terrified of storms, he was in rough shape when the rescuers found him dumped out by the interstate. Lab Rescue took him in and helped get him well.Â It took no time at all for this loving, wonderful boy to win our hearts. We make it our goal in life to help make up for the neglect he had in the past, and show him all the love he deserves. He is a wonderful addition to our family. Cuddle time on the hammock is a favorite.
We lost our yellow lab Mickey last fall to meningitis. We were heart broken for months and knew our chocolate lab Bailey was longing for her companion back. We were recently running into many people that had rescue dogs and decided to give it a try. The folks at LRROF were very friendly & helpful.
We began looking for a dog with the Lab Rescue in the beginning of April. We came to meet a chocolate lab named Blade. He was with his foster mom in Bonita and had been surrendered due to a new baby in the previous home. When we meet him he was all wiggles and smiles. He had ALOT of energy. After we met him we knew that we loved him, but it all depended on our two dogs reaction in meeting him the next day. We were nervous, but had already bought Blade a bed, a collar, and a dog bowl.ÂÂ
