Sonny and Shadow - Free's Info...
Rescue Group: Adopt A Golden Knoxville - Rhode Island
|Breed:||Labrador Retriever Mix||Color:||Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With Black||Age:||Adult|
|Size:||Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)||Sex:||Male|
Sonny and Shadow were owned by a young man who died. His mother did not want them and said she would have them put down this the next morning if someone did not take them.
Sonny is your typical yellow lab. He is very sweet, 9 years but still very playful for his age, and wants to be in your lap. He is a robust 102 pounds, healthy with the exception of stiff rear quarters from an old unrepaired cruciate injury.
While Sonny approaches people for love, Shadow, the female black male lab mix is a bit more unsure. He hides behind Sonny mostly in new situations. But as soon as Sonny says, the coast is clear, all is well! Shadow is 11 years old and has heartworms. She is currently being treated with slow kill method and is doing fine. She still has a benign mass on her forearm that is too large to remove.
Sonny and Shadow must stay together. Their adoption and transport fees are sponsored by our sister rescue Adopt A Golden Atlanta. They are sweet gentle dogs that just need a second chance, together.
If you are interested, please go to our website at www.adoptagoldenknoxville.org and fill out an application. Please read our Knoxville to New England page for more information on blind adoptions. Remember, their transport and adoption fee is waived. Also, please note that you are interested in Sonny and Shadow on your application.
NOTE: Adopt A Golden Knoxville rescue doesn't have an actual shelter building in your area. These dogs are fostered in private homes in East Tennessee. Therefore, it is not possible to meet the dogs and pups prior to their adoption. They are brought up north on a USDA transporter.
