Old Yeller, is that a new trend? Old stuff made NEW?? Cause I am NOT old, although I am Yeller, a really pretty YELLER COLOR!!! :) I am a Yeller Chesapeake bay retriever/ YELLER lab mix, it is important for my new family to know about the Chesapeake bay breed. We can be very stubborn, smart and independent and I really like to be in charge, so my new family needs to be strong leaders too. I am a handsome bloke, with swirls of yellow and white all through my coat. I am very smart and very sweet. I can from a high kill shelter with no hope- Now I EXUDE hope!! And LOVE!!! I WAS heartworm positive but have already finished the treatment and am NEGATIVE and just stay on prevention for the rest of my life. I am good with other dogs, but really would be best in an only dog home, cause I want all the attention :) I LOVE MY people and I tend to take "control" of my home so have to have a couple of things... 1) STRONG leadership owner, 2) I have to have an owner who will be wiling to not let me meet everyone who visits.. I want to protect my home a little too much... and 3) I have to stay in the San Antonio/TX area so my rescue friends can keep close tabs on me and how i am doing :) I have been running and playing since I am safe, but really am a couch potato. I am a bigger boy and about 65-70#. Look me up, get my number, text or call me OR just APPLY to ADOPT ME!!! I will be waiting by the phone!!! Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX)

Taylor JuM*

Labrador Retriever Mixed Breed (Medium)

Male, adult
Clive, IA
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Good with dogs, Good with cats,
Meet Taylor, a gentle and somewhat shy Lab mix weighing in at around 35-40 lbs. Taylor's journey started in a challenging place; he was among about 90 dogs in a hoarding situation, where he had to fight for his food and missed out on socialization. However, despite his rough beginnings, he hasn't shown any signs of aggression towards people or our other furry friends. It's clear that he's eager to be the absolute best boy! It took Taylor a few weeks to warm up to us, and he's still on his path to becoming a confident pup who can go for walks on a leash and socialize with others. Taylor has mastered the art of potty training, with initial marking issues that have now become a thing of the past. His crate is like a safe haven to him, providing comfort when he's feeling anxious or unsure. This sweet boy is longing for a serene forever home, ideally with a confident dog sibling to be his guide and companion. Taylor's new family should be exceptionally patient, allowing him to blossom at his own pace. It may take some time - even months - for him to feel completely at ease in his new surroundings, but he absolutely deserves that chance. Trust us; investing time in Taylor is worth it because beneath that shy exterior, there's a little goofball just waiting to shine! Let's work together to find Taylor the loving forever home he truly deserves. Your patience and care can make all the difference in his life. Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX)

Good with dogs,
Is it obvious that my appetite is insatiable? Well, I'm on the lookout for a family who can satisfy not only my hunger but also my heart. Meet me, an incredibly good-natured boy, a delightful blend of Lab and Shepherd breeds. I embarked on an epic journey all the way from across the vast landscapes of Texas to find a compassionate rescue that appreciates my charming squishiness. Now, here's the twist-I'm patiently awaiting that extraordinary family, the ones who will adore me and embrace every ounce of my gooeyness. Whether you're a brownie enthusiast, a belly-rub aficionado, or a household bursting with little and big humans, I'll fit right in. My affection knows no bounds; I have an undying love for dogs and people alike. Food, oh glorious food, has a special place in my heart, and it's safe to say that belly rubs are my ultimate weakness. So, if you're a family that knows how to whip up delectable treats and offer endless belly-scratching sessions, congratulations-you're officially my new family! Just remember, the first step to forever companionship is to apply for adoption. I eagerly anticipate the day when my new family will sweep me off my paws and into their loving embrace. The clock is ticking, and I am here, patiently waiting for you! Adoption application: Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area - $50 Temporary Fuel Charge will be added)

Good with dogs,
Greetings, I'm Yin, and I'm here to bring a little more balance into your life, even if I'm no Feng Shui expert! Consider me the first half of your "Feng" equation - let's figure out the rest together because, at my age, there's no need for extra stress! Once upon a time, I arrived as part of a trio of older girls, each of us weathered by life and not quite the social butterflies. Physically, we were in ruff shape, but thanks to the rescue, we narrowly escaped a less fortunate fate in a rural shelter where second chances are rare. I'm Yin, a mature black lab mix, a solid 73 pounds of sweet girl. While I may look a bit ruff around the edges, a glimpse at my photos on the plea will show you how far I've come and how much better I look now! Among my trio, I'm the most social. I get along with other dogs, but I prefer to hang with my peers - no need for those young whippersnappers to pester me, right? I'm ready to embark on my well-deserved retirement, and I've even got my tropical shirts ready for sipping fruity drinks. If you're looking for a companion to share your laid-back days with, don't hesitate to apply. Let's make this golden phase of life truly special together! Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area - $50 Temporary Fuel Charge will be added)
