Story
Cocoa has been fostered since June. She is very smart and follows commands well. She is also very strong and respects men more than women. She needs an experienced dog owner with a yard. She is dog aggressive and needs to be a one dog household. Would definitely make a great support dog for someone who can get her trained. She already helps me stand up. Vet references required. No breeders or fighting. Beautiful sweet baby needs a loving home. Will travel for a good owner.

Story
SPECIAL NEEDS Hi! My name is Sandor. I have very bad separation anxiety. I would do best with someone that works from home or a stay at home parent. I love other animals and I do great with kids! Sandor is a great dog, he is super sweet and affectionate. He needs an excess amount of attention that I am not able to give him due to my work schedule. Because of this, he struggles to do well with me. He had been around dogs, cats, and kids and does really well with them all. He really needs someone who is home the majority of the time to give him that extra attention that he needs. That will be a requirement for adopting, as well as a fenced in yard. If you are interested or have any questions about him, please feel free to submit an application and I will get back to you ASAP!

Story
Ember is a really good dog, but she's not living her best life with me. She needs someone that can spend more time with her than I am able to. She's good with dogs and cats. She's never had any major medical issues. She loves exploring, so she'd love going on walks and hikes with you.

Labrador Retriever

Male, Adult
Hammond, LA
Size

Details
Good with kids, Good with dogs, Not good with cats,
Story
Scoop and Simba are both full bred Labradors from different litters, but the same parents with papers. Scoop is chocolate and 7 years old. Simba is black and 6 years old. They have been together since Simba came home and MUST be rehomed together. Their vaccines and yearly exams are up to date. Scoop and Simba are very active, love to play catch, run, go on walks, and know a few commands. They are friendly with other dogs, but can get on other dogs' nerves because they are so hyper and love playing. They are great with children; however, if someone gets aggressive, Simba gets nervous and will protect himself. He has never bit anyone, but will growl and stand his ground. They are kennel kept when we are not home and at night. We do not trust them unattended, as they become mischievous with little attention. We love them very much, but would like them to have a home with more attention and room to run and play. They DO NOT have to be rehomed. We just want to improve their quality of life.

Waldo is the sweetest and happiest little guy! He has no teeth, so he needs to eat only soft food. Other than hypothyroidism, he's very healthy. He'd love to have a person all his own. So far, he has gotten along with everyone and everything he has met.
