I lost my Chocolate Lab (Roxie) due to old age (14 1/2 years old)
I live alone and was heartbroken. I said that's it ! Im not getting any more dogs. It just hurts to much. I was sitting alone every night just thinking about my Roxie and crying my eyes out. After 2 months, I couldn't stand it any more. I started looking to rescue another Chocolate Lab. ( I rescued Roxie as a puppy) I looked at all the rescue web sites that I could find. Finally I contacted LRRoF, filled out an adoption application. I was contacted and A representative came to my house and I was approved for adoption. Now I just had to wait for a dog to come along. Lo and behold the very next day there was Ella that was just brought to the foster parents. I drove to Fort Lauderdale on a Sunday and fell in love with her immediately. She was overweight and somewhat a little wild. She now has lost about 15 lbs and looks great. I brought her to the vet for her rabies shot and he couldn't get over just how beautiful and how her coat was just so shiny. She is in g
ood health and I am still in the process of training her. she has learned so much in just a short time and she is eager to learn more. Thank You so much LRRoF for connecting us together. We are now both happy and so grateful to you. Thank You Again. Ray
We couldn't be happier with our experience. Shadow is equally comfortable roughing it up with other large breeds or snuggling with our two young daughters and 7 pound Shih-tzu mix. In short he is a lab; loving, playful, smart, and loyal. Thanks LRROF!! Special thanks to Kenny, Maryanne, Mike, and Deb.
We adopted Hank back in 2006 from Florida Labrador Rescue. We will always be so thankful to the volunteers. The interview process and placement was spot on. He spends most of his days keeping up with our three boys and most evening cuddling up to my husband on the couch. He is without a doubt the best dog we've ever had. Thank You Florida Labrador Rescue. Becky Duffy
Lola was fostered in a home along with 7 pugs. On our way to meet her, we agreed that we'd not make any decision that night. 2 hours later, we were driving home with her. She is a joyous animal and is better trained than any other dog I've known. We are so lucky to have found her. Thank you Lab Recue.
When Jim and I went to see Holly at Pat's house, we knew instantly that she was ours. She looked so petite next to her foster brothers but she played just as hard. She is sweet and full of energy. Holly had heartworm when we adopted her. We are happy to say that she is heartworm free and happy and healthy. We are so thrilled we could give Holly her forever home. She brings so much happiness and love into our home - it would not be the same without her!
