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
What a great experience getting Max has been for our family. We have two boys, ages 10 and 16, plus two dachsunds and we decided we needed another dog to add to our already hectic lifestyle. We were nervous, but for some reason we charged ahead and contacted Lab Rescue (as we wanted a little larger dog). From the first call from Vicki, with lab rescue, we felt more comfortable with the process, but still a little nervous. Then we asked about Max, "he is still a puppy lots of energy and based on your application may not be exactly what you are looking for, but let's see".
I wanted to tell our story and how great adpoting has been. We got Zeus (our chocolate) just over 3 yerars ago from Pat in New Port Richie. He was one year old at the time. He was just a great dog right away. Loves the tennis ball,, in fact lives for it. Super sweet and smart. We grew to love him so much,,, we adopted another.
I was worried at first, but after the application process, I saw how serious the volunteers were and then I knew there was no way we were going to be placed with the wrong dog.
Kona has fit right in with our family and brought new happiness into our home and the kiddos love her.
There's nothing better than the sound of clacking of her paws and nails as she tracks through the house to see what everyone is doing.
This short film says it all.
I wanted to write lab rescue and tell my happy story. It has been one year since I found my forever home and I have never been happier! When I first arrived home I was very nervous and shy but my momma was very loving and now she says I'm her social butterfly. I get to go for walks everyday and sniff, run and play. It sure beats my days as a street dog. Momma calls me Jake, her lover boy, sweetheart, hambone and good boy. I guess she can't decide on just one name for me, that's ok I'm smart and answer to all of them. I have to admit I blush a little when she says she's not sure who rescued who and gives me a big kiss. But, I never miss the chance for hugs and kisses. I've made so many new dog friends, and even have a few cousin dogs that I call family. My birthday is coming up and although momma puts a birthday hat on me and takes pictures I get to play in the water and even get a special birthday cake! I'm one happy dog, thank you lab rescue for helping feel better and for helping me find my forever home! Happy Tails!
