Visit our "Pet List" to learn more about the dogs on our site who need homes.
We encourage you to consider adopting an older dog. They are perhaps even more devoted since they know what it is like to be without a family or
friend to love them. Most will return all the affection you have to give tenfold. Often, older dogs are harder to place because so many people want puppies. Give an older dog a chance. They can still bring years of love into your hearts and homes!Just ask Kathi of Denville--she adopted 9 yr old Molly, who saved Kathi by going for help after her new owner had fallen and hurt herself!
Your dog not coming with the proper paperwork need not keep you from participation in dog sports! Go online and get the blank PAL form, just in case you ever decide to show off your new rescued dog alongside all those dogs with pedigrees.
Bali, a chocolate Lab adopted from Labradors & Friends, is one of the first recipients of the new AKC titles in 2012, MXS and MJS, the silver level awards. These are in addition to her Master Agility Championship and her obedience UDX and other titles.
Sin, a black Lab adopted with assistance from Labradors & Friends, survived surgery for megaesophagus, thanks to owner Michele. Michele and Sin then went on to start competing in agility, earning several titles with first place ribbons. They now compete at a high level, racking up the Qs and speed points. Thanks, Michele, for loving Sin so much and for training her so well.
Congratulations to Mary Ann and rescued Lab, Astro. Going again for the blue ribbons in obedience, he now has added an AKC CDX (Companion Dog Excellent) to his AKC CD and RN and U-CD titles. Good dog, Astro! Not bad for Mary Ann, either, as this is the first dog she has ever formally trained or entered in competition.
CONGRATULATIONS TO RESCUED LABS AND THEIR DEDICATED OWNERS FOR THEIR WONDERFUL ACCOMPLISHMENTS!
"Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little."--Edmund Burke
"I am only one, but I am still one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. And just because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. "--Helen Keller
