Meet Culver, a 2 year old, 70lb, very special, rambunctious Chocolate Lab mix that loves everything and everyone. Culver is a special needs dog as he is blind, and also has allergies so he requires a special diet. He will need to be on a grain free diet such as Nutra, Natures Recipe or Pure Balance.  Culver is looking for a very special home of his own that will understand his needs and give him the love he deserves. He is fantastic with kids of all ages and loves to play with other dogs and cats! Culver is a typical Lab with lots of energy, but settles down nicely when instructed. Culver is not suitable for apartment living. Culvers blindness is degenerative, he can still see some shadows, but will eventually be completely blind. For that reason we will not consider families who are currently renting as we would like him to get comfortable in his forever home before going blind and we do not want to put him through the stress of moving.He is very smart, and being blind does not slow him down much! After he learns where everything is in his home, he gets around just fine, and can even go down stairs if given a little guidance. He also knows how to sit, come, stay, leave it, wait, and listens very well. He is a very silly boy that does like to be vocal at times. He also enjoys laying on the couch with his person and a good chew toy.

Culver is house trained and doing very well with crate training, and of course he loves riding along to Culver 's Restaurant for a treat!  Culver is a sweet, friendly, well-adjusted pup that will be a great addition to a family that will understand and embrace his specific needs.

About Needy Paws Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Needy Paws Rescue, located in St. Louis, MO, is devoted to saving animals in need, whose lives are in danger at high kill animal shelters & animal controls, those who are strays, have been abandoned or whose family has faced an extreme emergency, regardless of their size or breed.

Our organization is made up of Volunteers who have been involved in various animal rescues in the St. Louis area and we plan to use our knowledge & experience to make a difference. We believe spaying & neutering is a very important step in keeping pets healthy & happy, plus it helps decrease overpopulation. All of our rescued animals will be spayed or neutered, they will be microchipped to ensure they are identifiable if lost or stolen and they will be current on all of their vaccinations before going to their Forever Homes.

We are foster-based and all pets stay in approved Foster Homes that have passed inspections, reference checks and are qualified to take care of our rescued animals while they wait for their Forever Family. We are dedicated to finding the best Forever Homes, and will be making home visits and conducting veterinarian checks & reference checks to ensure the pets will have a safe, loving, happy home. Forever Families will be taught how to care for their pet and learn how to get the most out of their relationship with their new family member. We also have an after-care specialist who will be in contact with the families after the adoption to see how well they're doing together
