Coach

Coach is the pups’ dad, and we were not about to leave this gorgeous boy behind.  We believe he is between 2 and 3, and not a very large male at 58 pounds .Although he appears to being doing well, he does need some better nutrition to restore his health to its maximum and some additional weight. He is exceptionally friendly and enjoyed his much needed bath today.  Our initial impression is that he is an easy going guy and is adapting relatively quickly to his new surroundings. We look forward to learning more about him and helping him find his future home.

Hobo- a special surprise post

hobo

This adorable little guy was abandoned and left to fend for himself in one of our volunteer’s yard.  Or maybe the former owner new exactly where to “dump” his dog, because this volunteer has a huge heart and would do anything humanly possible to help him.  Our friend was hesitant to ask CLR for help, since the dog isn’t a lab, but he needs a loving home just like all the other precious dogs we post. She said he is a very sweet boy, who obviously has not had a wonderful life.  Hobo is estimated to be around three years old and he is mid-size at 34 pounds. We sincerely doubt he has had adequate care.  We will have him neutered soon and have already treated him for fleas. We often ask ourselves why some people treat their pets so terribly- well, we just can’t answer that since we don’t understand this anymore than anyone else. What we do know is that some kind soul will step up to provide this cutie pie just what he needs to know there are indeed good people.

Vali

When we were asked to help Vali, we could not resist.  He appears to be a wonderful year old lab/collie mix.He is fully vetted, microchipped , and HW tested.Apparently quite a sweet boy according to his fosters.  He gets along with other dogs and is indifferent to cats –  to us that translates into doing fine with cats.  He is somewhat shy and is believed to have been a stray and may have had limited time inside a house as he was initially uncomfortable navigating stairs. He is a little shy submissive (not shy aggressive) and knows some commands (sit), is housebroken, and adapted to leash walks very quickly. He would need a little patience, because he does still has a few nervous behaviors (pacing, lying down in submission when a new person meets him), but seems like he will be a great dog once he feels safe, loved, and comfortable in his new surroundings. We think he sounds like one awesome guy!
