Jake

You would be hard pressed to find two more handsome boys than Charley & Jake.  Jake is a 9 year old Golden Retriever, and Charley is a 10 year old yellow English Labrador Retriever.  These boys recently lost their Dad who was apparently a recluse and did not socialize Jake and Charley.  They do well with other dogs and get along great with their foster sister Stella.  However, they are quite scared of people.  They have warmed up to their foster Mom and are loving, playful and normal dogs when just around her.  She is even able to walk the two of them, along with their foster sister on a leash.  However, when new people come around they remain skittish, keep their distance and will often bark. 
They have been around children and other dogs.  However, they would do best in a home without young children due to the activity level of the children.  Their foster mom says that their true personality is that of big goof balls.  Jake is so smart he can open doors and prefers to be around his person, and Charley is rarely caught without a stuffed animal in his mouth.  They enjoy wrestling with each other, tug-of-war, and belly rubs from their foster mom.  
They are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.  It will take a special family with patience and love to help Jake & Charley overcome their fear of new people.   Yet, the reward when they allow you to love them is beyond measure.

Charlie

Hi, Charlie (25) here and I have to say that I’m kind of disappointed that my new forever family hasn’t called my foster mom to meet me. I’m a 10 year old big, soft teddy bear and an easy dog to have in your home. I love my morning walks so much that I tend to get a little excited when I see my foster mom get my leash. I’m very good on the leash and the only time I pull is when I see a bunny.  Sure wish I could play with one. I like my naps and going outside to lay around to check out what’s going on in the neighborhood. All I really need is for someone to love me, walk me twice a day and feed me breakfast and dinner. See how easy I am? Call my foster mom to meet me, you won’t regret it!

 

Gideon

Gideon (3) is a beautiful 8-year-old male black lab that is a big teddy bear at 124 lbs, now 117 lbs!!!  Gideon is now on weight management food and regular exercise to shed some weight; so, he is looking for a family that will continue his weight management and regular exercise.  He is very friendly and is good with other dogs and people, just not sure how he is with cats.   When he came to DLRR, he was an outside dog that was not taken care of and was covered in ticks. Gideon has since had a spa day; dipped, bathed, nails trimmed and a good brushing. Gideon is housebroken and has full run of the house when I am there and away, he is not destructive at all. He isn't a barker but will whine a little when you leave the house. Gideon walks good on a leash, rides in the car good and takes his treats gently. At first, Gideon wasn't sure if he was allowed to lay in the doggy beds at my house - now he Loves them! He'll make a great companion - He is just a Big Love Bug! If you would like to meet him, please call.

 

Allie

Meet Allie (3)!
My name is Allie- Miss Allie Dudley. Folks around here call me Miss Allie Sweetie Pumpkin Sugar Pie, but mostly just call me Allie Pumpkin. I’m the gorgeous mature strawberry blonde lady you’ve been looking for. I’m trying to figure out how I got into this mess!  I am the calm, sit by your feet kind of girl - & my house manners are impeccable!  My prior family moved - & didn’t take me – instead they left me alone in the backyard!  Can you believe that?!  A nice lady found me & helped me find my way to DLRR.  I never dreamed I’d be interviewing a new family to call my own, especially being in the prime of my life at 7 years young.
I’m doing great in my foster home where I live with three other dogs of all sizes. I am trust-worthy in the house, come & go through the doggie door, enjoy the nice cushy doggie beds, ride well in the car, take treats gently, & just love hanging out with my people. I’ll even dig through the toy box & pull out antlers to chew on.  I’m really easy-going & would be happy with another easy-going dog or even just being you’re one-and-only girl. I LOVE human attention & all the pettings & whispers of sweet-nothings that come with it. I am a little afraid of thunderstorms & really want to be close to you.  When I first came here I was a little stiff getting around & therefore a little grumpy – but I’m feeling so much better now!  The nice doctor discovered I have some arthritis in my lower back.  A low dose of Carprofen twice daily has helped me feel so much better - & have no fear, it’s not too expensive (about $30 a month) & should be continued.  I am blessed with an 84 pound beautiful curved figure, but for good measure we are working on shedding a few pounds. A good diet & some exercise – I could use a little more practice with leash walking & am interested in the pool.  My foster parents love me very much & tell me that I am going to make my new family very happy.  If you’re interested in my company, running your fingers through my beautiful coat, & staring into my beautiful, soulful golden eyes, give my foster mom a call.
