My story

Foster needed for Admiral -- 10-year-old male brown Lab Neutered approx. 70 lbs

Background: Admiral’s owner is getting older and is having trouble physically and financially caring for Admiral.

What Their Owner Says:Admiral has been around adults and seniors. He spends most of his time outdoors and sleeps in a doghouse at night. Although he is not housebroken, whenever he has gone in the house, he has not had an accident. He is a smart boy who really wants to please. He is a playful and friendly dog who has some training. He barks when excited and at strangers. He likes to play fetch and with other dogs. He has never shown any aggressive behavior.

What Their Rescue Rep Says: Poor Admiral needs your help to find a new home, one that can show him the dog life he deserves in his golden years. Admiral is a spry 10-year-old brown lab with green eyes. He likes to greet people with a “hug” front two paws on your shoulder. This seems to be a learned behavior and how he copes with situations he is unfamiliar with. The owner did say he got Admiral from a breeder, and he definitely looks and behaves like a pure-bread lab. Admiral was happy and excited to meet me. When we walked away from his owner he cried and pulled. Admiral will need to be reminded how to walk on a leash. When prompted he sometimes corrected his pulling on leash but was very out of sorts on our walk since he hasn’t gotten out of his backyard much over the last few years. When other dogs walked by, we had to pull over as he actively cried and barked wanting to play. When I sat down and ignored him, he tried to get in my lap. Admiral let me touch him all over, ears, paws and hips and he looks to be in very good health. He is in need of a bath and some good nutrition to bring his coat back to life. Admiral would do best in a home with an experienced lab owner, one that can take the time to work with him on a leash and teach him house manners. Like all labs he is eager to please but is just used to being outside all the time. We would also recommend a home with older kids as he does like to “hug” often and when anxious will put two paws on your shoulders. He took treats gently but didn’t like them and promptly spit them out. I was able to put food in a bowl and after a sniff take it away with no problem. Who can help this, young at heart, lab live his best life?

Medical: We are trying to get access to Admiral’s medical records, and he did just receive his rabies vaccine.

Located in: Antioch, CA but we would like to find him a foster home where he can start to learn how to be a happy dog.
