  • Declan

    When 38 pound Declan, a 1-2 year old chocolate Lab, was pulled from his backyard, it appeared that he was on his way to the Rainbow Bridge.  His sister was barely hanging on, and mom lasted just a few days before she crossed over.  The shelter immediately began searching for foster care, but the weak siblings contracted a severe strain of kennel cough, which made their struggle just that much more difficult.
    While Declan was under anesthesia, a thorough exam revealed that at some point in his young life, Declan also battled distemper.  The enamel on his teeth is malformed and he sees only large shadows, a consequence of neurological damage due to the distemper.
    Despite all of this, Declan has maintained a sunny, upbeat personality.  As you can see by his second picture, he's gained back all of his weight and he is a love bug.  He is looking for a special home, for someone who doesn't need a perfect dog, but can appreciate a loving soul. He is still learning how to play and the trainer says that he is highly trainable.  Please don't forget about this special boy when considering dogs for adoption.

    Lulubelle

    Lulubelle

    It all started with our first lab, a wonderful, beautiful black "block head" Baby Dog. She was with us for 17 years and she filled our hearts with love. We first adopted KoKo, a chocolate beauty, from LROF when she was 5 years old, we later "inherited" Ranger from our son and his wife when our granddaughter was born and they couldn't have a pup in their leased house, Ranger was also a LROF pup! Ranger was a "block" head chocolate lab who was stone deaf, he became my velcro dog who watched me constantly with his goofy smile! We lost both of our pups to cancer, KoKo at 13 and then Ranger at 8 years, too young - our hearts were broken. I knew my life wouldn't be complete nor would my house be a home without another labbie. We adopted Lulubelle, a beautiful, smart, fun loving little girl (3 years old) in July - she's a yellow "block head" and she has taken over our hearts with her sweet wa
