Facts about Abraham "Abe"

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Young

Meet Abraham!

Abraham is absolutely breathtaking with his shiny, jet black coat and amber eyes. He is most likely 98% Labrador with 2% staffordshire because of his muscular physique. He is 65 lbs and just the perfect size for a bear hug! We estimate Abe to be between 1 1/2 and 2 years old and has an abundance of energy outside and is a gentleman in the house and keeps himself busy with his rope bone.

We know that at some point in his life he was shown kindness and never forgot that. Abraham tends to wiggle his whole entire body when he meets people and is the happiest and most fun dog there is! He absolutely loves his"Jolly Ball" and can keep himself amused with it for hours if you let him. He will even throw it for himself! If you come to meet Abraham, you will be sure to fall in love with this goofy boy! Abraham is great wit

He is very playful with most other dogs, however most dominant males do not seem to like him and he is leery of them as well. Abe shows a little too much interest in cats, so he would do best in a feline-free home.

Abraham did test positive for heart-worms but is in the midst of treatment and doing fabulously! Heart-worms are only transmitted by a mosquitoes and are NOT simply contagious to other dogs through saliva or blood. Keeping your dog on prevention is imperative to keeping your dog heart-worm negative. Fortunately, heart worms are treatable and preventable. Please contact us if you would like more information to understand heart-worms better and Abraham's current treatment, which is covered by RARE and no additional cost to his adopter. Abraham deserves to be adopted and is looking forward to being heart-worm free!

All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines prior to adoption. Please complete the application on our website and we will call you to answer any questions you may have.

Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heart-worm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption.

About Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE)

About Our Rescue Group...

Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE) is an organization that is dedicated to saving animals in rural areas, mainly in 'pounds' and shelters, both high-kill and no-kill. There tends to be a higher overpopulation rate in rural areas due to lack of animal ordinances and alteration to prevent unwanted litters. Many animals are 'dumped' on country roads left to parish or end up at the local pound or animal shelter if they have an empty kennel. Many of these animals have a limited number of days before they are euthanized. In addition to placing animals in foster and adoptive homes, networking with rescues to assist in placement and adoption of animals, RARE also performs fundraisers for spay/neuters and other vetting to prevent further overpopulation and promote quality of life for the animals we save.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees cover all vetting for the animals in our care, including vaccinations, Heart-worm test, Heart-worm treatment if needed, Feline Leukemia test, spay/neuter and may vary, depending on species.

Fosters and Adopters will be required to complete an application with personal and Veterinary references. A home visit is also required.
