Marshall is another recent arrival at CLR. He is between 2 and 3 years old and is a very dear black male. Those who have met him said he is exceptionally friendly and loving, and gets along well with everyone he meets. We promise to update as we learn more about him, but so far he is making an absolutely wonderful impression. It seems like we often have similar descriptions about our dogs, but, then again, their labs!
This precious little girl is arriving early next week. One look at her face, and we knew she just had to come to CLR. Kaylee is just one year old and only 52 pounds. We can’t wait to meet her, and her soft eyes are a definite mirror to her sweet nature.
This precious bundle just arrived at CLR. They are only 5 weeks old, but will be ready to be adopted on December 24th. There are two females, Holly and Noel, and one darling little boy, St. Christopher. They are currently being pampered in their foster home, and their foster mom describes them as “so very good and absolutely adorable”. We couldn’t agree more. The previous owner was tired of them, so relinquished them to our care via a shelter, and we feel blessed that they are currently safe and loved. We will continue to update as we learn more about their individual personalities!
St. Christopher Holly Noel
Mack Is a magnificent yellow boy who recently arrived. He is a large 2 year old who weighed in at 82 pounds. He is very, very sweet, but needs obedience training and a good routine to temper his energy. We love posting pictures of this extremely handsome boy! We must confessed that we were overwhelmed by his good looks and suspect his mind and heart will match. We are all quite smitten with this amazing dog! He is definitely a show stopper!
Moses, a precious 2 1/2 year old male, recently arrived at CLR. He is exceptionally gentle and very friendly with people and gets along well with other dogs. The more we learn about him, the more we love him. He certainly has made a wonderful impression on everyone who meets him with his joy and friendliness. Without a doubt, he has a wonderful heart and capacity for loving his people.
Bonnie came back to CLR because her adoptive family did not feel they have the time to devote to this high energy girl. She is under two years of age and needs a great deal of exercise. She has a very loving disposition, but requires a great deal of stimulation to keep her amused. Although they said she was a very sweet girl, she just wasn’t the right fit for them. So, she is back and hoping to find a family who can devote the time she needs to help her become part of a loving family.
Sadie was found wandering with Katie, and we are extremely grateful to the good Samaritan that saved these two beautiful chocolate labs. Sadie is a little older at seven, but equally as sweet. She isn’t quite as thin, but there is no doubt that she has also been extremely neglected. Fortunately, she is safe now in a wonderful foster home getting the care she so richly deserves. She is a little under the weather, but hopefully, soon, she will recover her spirit and be energized by all the attention and love.
UPDATE 11/11/13: As we are getting to know Sadie better, we are really touched by her sweetness and gentle nature. She’s a little bit older, but certainly deserves to find a loving family to provide her the love and comfort she deserves. Her best friend (and possibly daughter) was adopted and we are sure she is wondering why she is being overlooked.
We love seeing Sadie be cared for and loved at her wonderful foster home, and how much she is loving her foster brother Leo.
Emmie is one beautiful black 1 1/2 year old labbie girl! She has wonderful manners, with the exception of needing some leash work. She is obedient and a quick learner, which is a wonderful combination. She gets along well with other dogs and people and is exceptionally sweet. We anticipate her new family is right around the corner waiting for this wonderful girl.
UPDATE 11/17/13: Our volunteers have been spending time with Emmie and think she is just a wonderful girl. She is a good listener and definitely learning her manners. She will be a wonderful companion and is patiently waiting to meet her family.
FOSTER UPDATE 11/15/13: “Emmie – All I can think is why hasn’t someone adopted her??? She is the perfect lab. Absolutely beautiful. Great mind, heart and spirit. Very smart. Does very well on a leash. Knows sit, and seems mostly house broken ( a couple of incidents, but she usually goes and sits at the back door). She loves to cuddle and gives kisses, and gets along great with all of our dogs. She is actually rather calm in our house, much calmer than most others have been.”
Angelic best describes 5 year old Tyler. He is such a shy boy who looks like he has never been given the love and security he deserves. He absolutely needs some good nutrition and tender care to restore his spirit. Pilots ‘n Paws made a special stop to pick up Tyler and bring him to us so we can provide him a better life.
UPDATE 11/17/13:We are delighted that Tyler went into a foster home this weekend and are anxious to hear from his foster mom. Regardless, when we shared with the kennel at EAH and front desk staff that he was leaving, everyone said, “Awe…we just love that boy!” We think that is really a significant indication that he is a very special boy.
This adorable 5 year old male recently came to CLR, and he is looking for someone to care and love him. He needs some manners, but seems like he will be a quick learner. We can’t blame the dogs who arrive with little training, and often they just want to be taught what they need to do to please us. As we learn more about Nash, we will update the post.
UPDATE 11/11/13: Although Nash hasn’t been in foster care, the kennel staff thinks he is a great boy. He plays beautifully with the other dogs in day care, keeps his quarters nice and clean and they all seem to think he is a very special guy. What a nice combination of positives along with being a very handsome guy.
Brody also arrived Oct 13th, with Pilots ‘n Paws. He was more anxious on the flight than Perry, but once he settled in, he was just fine. He is 5 years old and need to put on a little weight along with more nutritious food. He gets along well with other dogs and is quite playful. He needs some additional manners, especially walking with a leash, but we expect with guidance he’ll become another wonderful labbie companion. His sweet face is quite irresistible, and we hope he finds his family very soon to love and provide him the warmth and care he deserves.
FOSTER UPDATE 12/1/13: “Well, we are a week in with Brody joining our crew for the holidays. He is putting on some major weight, which is good since you could see every rib! He is doing great, eats like a champ, slowly, and with lots of patience. He is learning to sit and his name. He is house trained, crate trained, and slowly learning how to walk on a leash. He loves to walk and run and play after a ball. This week should be better to get out on a leash, but he is doing much better. Can you say a sweetheart? He takes treats very gently, he is very submissive with humans and pretty much ok with all dogs. He wants to be loved on so he would be fine with a house without another dog or with one. He sleeps through the night no problem on a soft bed! All in all, a wonderful boy who just wants a human family to love on him, and he will return that love with much gratitude…going to be a great addition to any family.”
This wonderful boy who arrived with his sibling Lizzie is 7 years old and just thriving in foster care. Although he isn’t fostered with his sibling, he is amazingly adaptable and adjusting beautifully to the changes in his life. Hershey is a very loving and affectionate boy and gets along very well with everyone he meets. Don’t let the grey muzzle fool you, he still has plenty of energy and joy for life.
Foster Update 10/12/13: “Hershey is such a sweet baby. He loves to walk, run and chase tennis balls. And he does drop them for you. He loves to show affection and wants to be with you. He’s not happy about a crate and I have found no reason to keep him there. He sleeps in my bed with several of my other labs and will quickly go to the bottom of the bed when told. He is great at coming when called and knows several tricks. I don’t think that it is grey hair, he just has some white hair on his face and paws like one of my other labs. Hershey loves to swim in the pond and is ready for his forever home.”
This three year old girl just arrived, and we are delighted to help her. A good Samaritan found her roaming the streets 9 months ago with her son, Paco. They took her in temporarily to help restore her health, which turned out to be quite a task. This poor girl was Heart Worm positive and her neck was sliced open. She was treated for the HW and mended, and now she is ready for her forever home. Amazingly, considering her hard life, she loves people and every dog she meets. Currently, she is considerably overweight, but a good low-fat diet and exercise will be the perfect remedy. We hope you are ready to open your heart to this sweet girl who deserves a chance to find a family to love her and keep her safe.
Jenny is a very sweet girl who does well in day care, but needs to be the only dog with a family. She becomes territorial on a one-on-one, but never has a problem with the “pack”. Dog park visits and socialization outside the home are a good experience, but she needs the security of being the center of her dog world in her own environment. She is not a very large dog at 55 pounds and ready to find her new family to love.
FOSTER UPDATE 11/25/13: “Jenny is really a sweet and appreciative dog. She rode home great. When we got here, she sniffed all of the dogs, and had a little growl for our one girl. I told her no, and pulled her leash back, and she immediately stopped. I kept her in the office with me while I dealt with some work issues. She just laid at my feet and loved getting petted and responded with lots of tail wagging and smiles. I brushed her a lot, which she really loved. Our female, being her normal troublesome self, pushed the door open and Jenny got out. She snapped once at a dog, but he merely walked away and that was it for them. No more issues since. Jenny and I just took a walk around the park and a large Portuguese water dog got in her face barking like crazy, but Jenny just ignored it and walked on. Jenny is very obedient which was evident because she stayed right by my side when walking, and if I said stop, she did on a dime, and when telling her to sit, there was no hesitation. Jenny really has great potential to be a wonderful and loving girl with a compassionate person who understands her special personality.”
UPDATE 11/11/13: We are hoping that someone is ready for this sweet girl who is being overlooked. She really is a love and more than ready to find someone to love and help her feel wanted. Her sadness at being passed over is almost palpable, and we just know there is someone to open his or her heart to this sweet girl.
