found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Charlie has one of those happy, "coffee table" tails - you know, the kind that wipes everything off the coffee table. He knows sit and walks pretty well on leash. And he doesn't jump on people. He rides quietly in the car, but is a bit hesitant to get in so needs to be helped in. Since he's still a young Lab who hasn't had much training, we will be collecting a refundable training deposit on him to ensure he gets all the direction he needs to become the perfect partner. He's just a bit mouthy like most young Labs, so needs to have his own chew toys to play with. We feel he'll do best in a family that doesn't have small kids where he can carry their toys around. Charlie gets along welll with other dogs, and may be ok with cats.
Charlie was brought into rescue from a high kill shelter where he was turned in by his previous family because they moved to an apartment that didn't allow dogs. He is neutered, up-to-date on his shots, and is looking for a family where he'll be showered with love and attention.
Charlie has a very special request that he wants us to tell you about: this darling boy is in need of hip replacement surgery on his left hip due to having genetically weak hips, and thanks to Lab Rescuers, he will get it. He knows this is going to cost as much as $4500, and that LR depends on donations to pay for the surgery and follow up care. Charlie is asking for your help - can you send him a gift by making a donation to LR to help with his medical expenses? Once he's all healed, he'll be ready to find his forever home. Update: 12/23: Charlie did well with his surgery and is on complete crate rest for the next 6 weeks, then very limited walks for another 6 weeks. He is happy to be home now. Please check back for updates on Charlie's surgery and rehab over the upcoming weeks. Update 1/4/11: Charlie had his 2-week post-op check up, and his surgeon said he's doing great.
