GGLRR foster homes are often full when we find special Labs who we think deserve a chance. These Labs are in the process of getting into our program (evaluation, vet visit, etc) and having a foster identified gets us one step further in finding a forever home.

Foster needed for ~6-month-old male black Lab “Blackie”
Background:Blackie’s neglectful owner surrendered him to a good (er, great) Samaritan vet. Blackie was covered in fleas, and an old collar (left on him too long) had burrowed into his skin, causing significant wounds around his neck. With wonderful care and treatment from the vet, the wounds are healing well, and his fur is slowly growing back. We do not think he’d ever been let outside but he was also not potty-trained when the vet first received him, and he is now making great progress -- mostly peeing and pooping outside. He is just learning what life in the green grass of the outdoors is all about – and we think he really likes it… although he is still quite timid around many things. He knows “sit”, and focuses on you very well -- as long as food is involved. He will need someone that is patient and has a yard to work with him -- pool optional. He is fine with other dogs too – just wants to play with them. Blackie loves people and has great potential! He is a very smart boy. Blackie is neutered. Blackie will join the Lab Rescue program on Thursday October 31st and we’d like to have a foster ready to receive him then.
