Important Note

Comet & Star is best friends with Star & Comet. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
COMET is a 7 year old spayed fox red female Lab who weighs 53 pounds. Comet is a very sweet girl. She needs to be adopted with Star as they are a bonded pair. Comet is the leader of the two, and is much more confident. She is house trained and doesn't need to be crated. Comet needs to go to a home with a fenced on yard as she doesn't like to do her business on leash. She knows the commands: sit, come here and go lay down. Comet is good with other dogs. She should go to a home with no cats. Comet is approved for kids 5+.

Update: Comet and Star are gorgeous, sweet, playful, and very affectionate. All they really need are some squeaky balls, belly rubs, and lots of love. They are very playful and gentle with the 7 and 9 yo kids in their foster home and walk well on their EZ walk harnesses.

Top 5 reasons 2 are better than one:
5. They always have a friend so they’re never lonely and you don’t feel guilty when you have a busy day.
4. They entertain each other in the yard, so you don’t have to. Tired pups=happy humans.
3. Double duty guard dog security.
2. Twice as many kisses.
1. Double the irresistible cuteness!!!

Update: It’s rare to find these Comet and Star without a squeaky ball in their mouths. Aside from snuggling, fetching balls is their favorite activity. These sweet, snuggly seven-year-old ladies know how to sit and stay, have good house manners, and are getting much better on leash walks using the EZ walk harness. Comet and Stat were fast friends with the resident lab, and are great with young kids. They’re looking for a family to love, preferably with some little humans to play with them in the yard.

Update: Comet and Star are a pretty pair of bonded 7 year old females looking for love. Star is the one with the a white streak on her nose and Comet is the leader of the pair. They are very sweet, quiet, mellow and well-mannered. These girls are house trained and have no need for crates. Both are extremely gentle and great with young kids and they are APPROVED FOR KIDS 5+. They enjoy exploring the backyard, but don’t really understand what to do with tennis balls and squeaky toys just yet, but we are working on it. They love long walks and do very well walking on a leash. Mostly they just want to snuggle and relax with their humans. Star is the first to jump up on the couch or bed and snuggle up against you. Comet will follow you around the house and plop her head in your lap once you sit down. The girls are doing great at mealtime, very relaxed on car rides, and sleep peacefully in the playroom with our resident dog. Star prefers to sleep on the couch with a comfy blanket, and Comet loves to sleep in her dog bed on the floor. They definitely enjoy each other’s company, as they rarely leave each other’s side. When one gets up to investigate something, the other usually follows close behind. Yesterday we learned that Comet and Star do have a playful side! Initially they had very little interest in tennis balls, but yesterday Comet grabbed a ball and went sprinting in circles like a lightning bolt around the yard, with Star following close behind. After a few laps around the yard, they slurped up some water headed inside for a snuggle session. These love bugs are always looking for affection, and although they can be a little shy, they will not hesitate to let you know they would like more petting by giving you a gentle nudge. Star gave a few kisses for the first time today and we've noticed that both are starting to wag their tails now when we approach them. These girls are truly double the love, double the joy. These girls will bring an endless amount of love and happiness into your home.
