found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
My name is Shiloh and I have had a great life, that is, until my owner recently passed away. He purchased me from a breeder at 8 weeks old (yes I am AKC papered) and I was the light of his life. It was just the two of us and we did everything together. I was well cared for, loved, walked, played with and went on many outings. About a year ago he became ill and although we were still best pals, unfortunately the daily walks and outings had to stop. After my Dad passed away, I ended up going to a dog training facility for one month and then being placed in a boarding facility for one week. At that point, my Dad's family reached out to Lab Rescue as they wanted only the best for me as they knew they would find me another wonderful home.
Let me tell you a little about myself (not that I'm bragging or anything.) I am now with my Foster Mom and Dad who are showing me what it's like to live in a home again. They say I am one terrific girl who doesn't act my age. I'm not sure what that means but they said I'm very active. They have a young Lab and upon arrival I wasn't very pleased seeing another dog there since I am use to being "top dog." After taking enough time for a proper introduction, we are now best pals but my Fosters feel that I am more attached to my humans than the canine. Thus, Lab Rescue is looking to place me where I will be the only dog (and the only critter in the house.) I am already bonded with my Foster family and will follow them and watch them wherever they go when we are home. I love playing a good game of tug or war but I'm pretty strong when I play and thus would not want my mouth to get in the way of any children. I am not aggressive and wouldn't mean any harm but to play it safe Lab Rescue wants any children in the home to be 10 or older. Since I haven't been walked in a while my leash manners need improvement. I know "sit" and "down" and could use more training so that I can continue to be a good canine citizen. I will need someone committed to daily exercise. I am housebroken and crate trained and that is where I sleep throughout the night. I am quite bonded with my Foster Mom and my Foster Dad says when she leaves for work I have a little separation anxiety (whining) for about 20 minutes and then I am fine. I am a velcro dog who will come up against your leg and cuddle or put my head down on your lap. Though my Foster family does not allow dogs on the sofa, when they are not looking I sneak up there. I figure since I'm a brown dog on a brown sofa they won't see me! I am gentle with my kisses as well as taking treats from your hand. You can take anything from me as I don't have any toy or food possession issues. Like most Labs, I like to eat! A cat-free home would be best. I get in and out of the car fine and like going for rides. I am friendly and get very excited when someone comes over so I can be a little pushy with my body but it's all out of excitement and easily correctable with training. I am not much of a retriever. You can throw the ball and I will run after it but I don't bring it back. I am use to having my owner around all day.
What Lab Rescue is looking for - Shiloh is an exceptional dog who has been very well cared for and loved his entire life. We want her to go to a home where someone is around with her, someone who will continue with her training and someone who will get her out for regular exercise. Shiloh was just seen by the vet, is healthy, spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and microchipped.
If you have the time for this beautiful active girl and want her to be a part of your family, please contact Rescue Rep Sandy @ (650) 303-2436.
(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)
