Eamon is a three-year-old Yellow Lab rescued from a hoarding situation. When we first set our eyes on him, he was severely malnourished and very fearful. Thanks to our loving and patient foster volunteers, not to mention a good and consistent diet, Eamon has come out of his shell and blossomed into a fine lad. He is now 45 pounds of pure love and joy, ready to move on to his forever home!
This sweetheart worships his people. He enjoys pets, will come up for attention, and simply loves snuggling like a lap dog. It would be wonderful if he could have a forever family who could be home more often than not, though it is not a requirement. However, we do require that any children be older and dog-savvy.
Furthermore, Eamon needs a confident canine sibling to show him the ropes as he continues to come out of his shell. It would also be very helpful for him to have a fenced yard, a highly structured routine, a quiet environment, and plenty of exercise--he loves walking and swimming.
All in all, Eamon is a wonderful dog--sweet, loving, obedient, playful (with the right dog), happy, and so full of life! We can hardly wait to find him a forever family who will cherish him as much as we do! So if you have the right home for Eamon, please contact us to get the adoption process started. He is being fostered in Duluth, MN, and his adoption fee is $350.
