Ally (#150036) & Zany (#150037)

Ally and Zany are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. Ally is a 15 year old spayed chocolate female and Zany is an 8 year old spayed black female. They are up to date on their shots. Zany is heartworm negative and Ally is heartworm positive. Ally will not have the standard heartworm treatment and will instead be treated with a heartworm preventative. Ally weighs 63 lbs and needs to gain a few. Zany weighs 81 lbs but should be 75-78. Ally and Zany are very easy dogs. Ally likes getting pet and likes to take it easy. Zany likes to play and is starting to play fetch. Ally walks well on the lead, and Zany does well on walks with the help of an Easy Walk harness. They know basic commands and have been getting along well with their foster fur-siblings. They would prefer a home in a suburban or rural setting. Ally and Zany are looking for a home where they can be spoiled with all the love, head scratches, and attention they so greatly deserve.

Update from Ally and Zany's foster family  - March 15, 2015:

Ally and Zany here, FM 2.0 has been slacking off on her mugshot posting job the past few she today we stopped wiggling for a nanosecond and posed for this picture...not our best effort! However we'd like you all to know that while we are enjoying our vacation at the lazy lab ranch and spa we would LOVE to have a family of our own. We are very sweet, we sleep well, eat well and can be trusted to have free run of the house. We love to take walks, lounge on the couch and have our heads petted. Ally's favorite place is on the couch with a paw touching you...and maybe a little of her body....and maybe a little more of her body, oh who are we kidding she's a lap dog!! Zany is athletic and fun loving, loves to be in the room with you keeping you company and playing with the resident doggies. So while these girls may have some frosting on their faces they are the dynamic can't go wrong with them.

Resources for Adopters

Thank you for adopting a lab from Lab Rescue of the LRCP.  Every year we find special homes like yours for hundreds of labs and along the way we have learned a lot that we hope can help you too. This section of our website is just for you and we hope it contains useful tips that can make the transition to your home move smoothly.

We know that every home is unique and you should know that every dog is unique as well. 

Remember that relationships don't just happen.  They take time and effort and along the way there may be bumps in the road.  That's to be expected but there are things that you can do to ease everyone's transition.  Don't be surprised by the occasional naughty behavior; it's normal.

If you have a question that doesn't appear in our resources section then please reach out to your adoption coordinator and he or she can get you the answers that you need.
