Oakley: 10-year-old male chocolate Lab 76 pounds neutered

Background: Roaming for weeks around Yuba County, this guy eluded capture before he finally stopped in someone’s front yard for some rest and relaxation. The good Samaritan homeowner took him in, provided some overdue TLC, took him to the shelter to be checked out… and then took him to a vet for a full checkup, neutering, and treatment for his skin condition. This wonderful angel was unable to keep him and she contacted Lab Rescue so we could continue his recovery and guide him to a forever home.

What Lab Rescue Says: Oakley is a wonderful dog that's been dealt an unfortunate hand of neglect in his past leaving him with chronic ear infections and severe hair loss. He is certainly a trooper and has endured countless vet visits with so much poking and prodding.

He has been with Lab Rescue for about a year and a half. We need an adopter who is able/willing to get him to occasional appointments at UCDavis and other appointments with their personal vet to manage the care of his ears. We have him on a special kibble for sensitive skin and stomach (salmon and vegetables) as well as a daily ear ointment medication. He is presently seeing a dermatologist at UCDavis.

Oakley is a very easy going dog, although strong and tends to pull on walks. He rides beautifully in the car, has romped and played with dogs he's been around, likes to be near you in the house but not clingy. He's quiet and a nice senior gentleman. He hasn't lived with cats so we don't know how he would be around them.

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
