Posted 3/14/2016. This is Herby, (The Luv Bug). He is a very timid boy! He is a Lab Mix, born August 22, 2015, and weighs 47 lbs. He has a very dainty head and petite feet. Herby has had a very rough start in life and never knew what it was like to be indoors. He was found running around a construction site and rescued by a lady who took him in but kept him in an outside kennel until Furry Friends Network brought him into foster care. Herby is a wonderful boy, has not had any accidents in the house and chews only on his toys. He loves the other furry friends, dogs and cat, in his foster home. He rides well in a car and walks well on a leash. He sleeps in bed with his human, so if he cannot snuggle in bed with you then he is not a good fit. He is scared of loud noises and he hides when the house is very active. A quiet home would be best for him. He needs a patient and loving person that will love him and work with him. Although he is nervous and scared of many things, once he trusts you he will love you like no other. He shadows his foster mom and loves to give kisses and snuggle.

About Furry Friends Network - Dog Adoptions

About Our Rescue Group...

Furry Friends Network is a non profit, all-volunteer animal adoption organization. Our philosophy is to help those animals that did not ask to be born, that are often the result of human ignorance. Any animal, no matter its age, can offer love and companionship to the right person.

Furry Friends Network is not a shelter, but instead uses a foster home network to house the animals until permanent, indoor homes can be found, offering second chances at lifetimes of love and happiness.
