Colt is a 12 year old neutered chocolate male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm positive but he will continue to use the monthly preventatives instead of a treatment. Colt weighs 76 lbs and is approved for children aged 10 an up. Colt came to Lab Rescue as a member of a bonded pair. He has adjusted well, but must go to a home with another dog.
Update from Colt's foster family - Mar 31, 2015:
Colt has been the perfect visitor at his temporary foster home. He is a sweet boy and enjoys attention. Colt loves looking out the window. He watches the post man without a peep, but there is a pesky street sign that he warns us about daily. On a sunny day, Colt enjoys wandering the yard with his canine buddies, checking out the smells. On the cooler days, he's content to do his business and get back indoors! Colt has met the cat, and while initially fascinated by her, after a few hisses for getting too close, he's come around to realize ignoring her is the way to go.
Life has been unfair to Colt. Last year he was surrendered by his owner because he could no longer care for Colt and his soul mate Holly. Not too long after that Holly died, leaving him again with a major adjustment. In the twilight of a labs life, these sort of things shouldn't be happening. Although this senior gentleman has adapted and is well cared for and loved by his foster family, it's not home. But, lets be brutally honest, at his age there really isn't a lot we can say to convince you he's the dog for you. Colt is 13-14 years old, has seizures, is pretty deaf, weak in the hind quarters and heartworm positive but can't be treated due to his age. He may know commands but since he can't hear them, he doesn't respond. That's pretty much what you'd expect from a guy his age. But he has a very endearing side as well. Colt is a very sweet and friendly boy that loves to give you kisses. He enjoys relaxing and is easy going. He is always ready for a walk and is a dream on lead. He also enjoys a good ride. He is calm and affectionate and very low maintenance. He has spent a majority of his life living in a outside pen when he lived with his buddy Holly. Holly was his leader and he followed her everywhere. When she died, he attached himself to his foster sister and now follows her everywhere. Even after 8 months, he still gets up to follow foster mom when she leaves the room. So if you love velcro, you'll love Colt.
Colt is a very good boy and deserves a happy ending. Won't you open you heart and home and allow this guy the love he so deserves.
