Max-Big Ole Teddy Bear's Story...
Max is a super friendly, pure bred white chocolate lab. He weighs about 80 lbs, and is a big ole teddy bear. Max is nine years old, and doing quite well for his age. He belonged to someone for the last nine years, but his family went through a divorce, and could no longer keep him. And so he came to Red Waggin Rescue.

Max is very bonded with his sister Chloe, and would love to go to a home together with her. (She is also posted on petfinder).Though we would consider sending them to separate homes, if we felt it was a good situation for him. Max is a very mellow, an such an awesome dog, who loves to be petted, and to be near you.(He sits on your feet, which I find adorable). He did great during his bath today!

One reason we would really like to see Chloe get a home with Max is that she helps keep him, calm when they are home alone. Max bonds quickly and is very loyal. His previous home reported, that he had some separation anxiety issues, and tended to get into trouble, if left home alone. That being said we are looking specifically for someone who either works from home, or is retired, to be his new mom or dad. A retired person who loves labs, and has breed experience, who could find a sitter, if they needed to be gone a long time, would be ideal. He does seem to do fine if left in an outdoor kennel run with Chloe.

Max still has energy, and would love to explore, and swim, and maybe do some light hiking. Max would not do well in an apartment. We are seeking someone who has a fenced area where he could, accompanied of course, safely roll, and play in the grass, and maybe do some sun bathing too. Max is too cool for school!
Max is very well trained. He knows sit, stay, lie down, and kennel up. He does great in the car, knows how to load up into a wire crate just fine, by himself. Maz would do good with gentle kids, and has not been tested with cats yet. Max does well with other dogs, though he can be a grumpy old man sometimes, (He is getting neutered, on this coming Monday, and that should help a lot).

Max would make a wonderful companion; he has the melting lab eyes, and is a total goofball. We are looking for just that right person, who falls in love, and who will do anything for him. He really needs a chance, being a senior it is tough to lose your home.

We currently have both Max and Chloe staying in our kennel, so we are looking for a both a foster, or an adopter for them. They are both located near Tri Cities, WA but can be brought to Seattle are for an approved foster or adopter.

Please email connellpetrescue@gmail.com for an application to give Max a chance!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max-Big Ole Teddy Bear, a Kirkland Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Kirkland, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Kirkland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Kirkland already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Kirkland breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Kirkland paves the way for another one to be saved.
