Facts about Carlie

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Carlie is an almost 5 year old purebred black Labrador Retriever. She is a big beautiful girl! Her owners had a 7 year old son diagnosed with cancer (leukemia) ...he was in remission for 4 years, then then the cancer recently returned. Due to the long hours they were spending in the hospital with their child, they sadly were unable to care for Carlie any longer. ~ Carlie is a very mellow, calm, laid back, friendly girl. Great with kids, other dogs, cats, everyone! House trained and very well mannered. She does have an eye condition "dry eye" that will likely need drops daily for a long time, but otherwise is perfectly healthy, now that we have had surgery done on both eyes for entropion. ~~ Note, we do require a fenced yard for all dog adoptions.

About Thirdtyme Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of people who simply care about dogs. ~ We take in just a few dogs at a time to help, so we can give each one intense personal attention/training/evaluation. We rescue dogs who really have no where else to go, such as from local high kill rural pounds or adults from the many Ohio Amish puppy mills. The foster dog then lives IN OUR HOME (not in a kennel!!) as one of our own canine family members -- this living situation best prepares the dog for living in YOUR home, as YOUR family member. We teach our fosters basic obedience TRAINING: housetraining, walk on leash, sit, down, come when called off leash, etc.
** The "Third Time" really IS the charm for one of these dogs: his first home didn't want him, we are his second home, and YOUR loving home is his third and forever home! :-)

Come Meet Our Pets...

We welcome you to come meet our pets and all the dogs in our home. Drop us an email or call to schedule a time, as soon as your adoption application is approved for that dog.

Our Adoption Process...

We have an adoption contract, require a fenced yard and a good vet reference. There is a sliding scale on fees. We like to meet the adopters in person and try to find the best match together.
** Of course all our foster dogs are first vet checked and healthy, fully vaccinated, spay/neutered, microchipped, clear of heartworms or any stool parasites, and on routine preventative meds (Heartgard, Frontline, etc.)
~~ We feel a very strong sense of responsiblity to the dog for the rest of his/her life and will always remain available to our adoptive homes as a resource for advice on training, behavior problems, nutrition, medical issues, etc.
