Cashew (#150300)

Cashew is a 9 year old chocolate neutered male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs and is approved for children aged 10 and up. He weighs 53 lbs. Cashew is a calm guy who his happy to embrace his season of life! He likes relaxing and taking it easy. He loves receiving affection, getting petted, and being brushed. Cashew is a little hard of hearing but he knows many commands. He is crate trained, takes treats softly, and is very food motivated. Cashew isn’t into toys so much- he’ll leave em’ for those silly younger pups. He can’t wait to find his forever family- he is looking for a family that will love him and pamper him through his older years!

Watch sweet Cashew romp around with a tennis ball during play time.

Update from Cashew's foster family - Jul 6, 2015:

Cashew is a very happy boy who loves to have his head and belly rubbed. He enjoys the company of other dogs and runs along with his foster siblings in the yard. Cashew loves soft, fuzzy blankets and dogs beds, but isn't afraid of making his way onto the couch to lie next to us or relax while we are out. He also likes to sit on the loveseat on the porch and watch the squirrels and birds from the shade. Cashew is very excited to go on walks even though he can only do short ones. He has a very gentle mouth with treats. He wags his tail from the minute he wakes until he is snoozing. He prefers to be in the company of people and will follow you room to room, either to lie down at your feet or curl up next to you on the couch. He met my boy friends cats and went over to sniff it them walked away later the cat laid down with Cashew to take a nap. He will play ball for a little bit, but has limited stamina.

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.

Thank You for a Great Walk!

This year's walk was held on June 14th, 2015 at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis, MD.

We had over 300 registrants and everyone enjoyed a beautiful, sun dappled walk.  Many dogs passed their Canine Good Citizen tests, romped in our splash and play area and were introduced to search and rescue / agility through onsite demonstrations.

Most importantly, we came together to celebrate our Love of Labs and of all dogs!

Thank you to our walkers, sponsors, vendors and volunteers for making this not only the funnest walk yet but also a great fundraising event.  Thanks to everyone's efforts, Lab Rescue of the LRCP raised about $110,000 to save Labs in need!
