BLACKY is a 12 year old neutered black male Lab who weighs 65 pounds. Blacky is a sweet and gentle soul looking for a family where he can relax and be loved. He's been great in his foster home with two other dogs. He went for a weekend getaway to another foster home with a cat and he did very well with the cat and resident dog. Blacky has a good appetite and enjoys short periods out in the yard. Blacky needs to go to a home with limited steps, or where he can be in an area of the house that won't require him to do more than 3-4 steps. Blacky was picked up by Animal Control a couple of times. The last time his owners didn't reclaim him, so he came to Lab Rescue. He is approved for kids 10+. More info soon!

Update: Blacky is spending sometime with us, and he is just precious. This little old man fits right in with the two resident senior dogs and is getting along great with young foster Woodstock and resident cat. He needs to go out often during the day, and he can't handle slippery tile floors, so runners must be used. He has a hearty appetite and slept through the night. Blacky still has a lot of love to offer, and as tempting as he is, we want him to find a forever family so someone else can experience all this sweetness. I love that he trots along in the yard! Watch him in the video.

Update: Blacky is loving every day and can't wait to find a home of his very own. He's got great house manners, and is a very sweet boy. He still needs a little help on steps, but enjoys just chilling and hanging out and watching out the windows. He is looking forward to meeting new friends, and hopefully his forever family at the next adoption event!

Update: Blacky is doing great in his foster home. He needs help going up and down a few steps, so he will do best in a home with limited steps. On the other hand, he enjoys walks, sleeping, and resting with the dogs on the first floor. They all go out together, Blacky tends to stay out longer. He really likes to look out the front door. I take him for rides, and he's a great front seat dog. He had a great time over the weekend at the other foster home and also enjoyed the company of the resident dog. This boy is a super house guest.
