|Updates from Families who
have adopted loving Labs!
LIFE WITH VEDDER- adopted at age 1: (April 2010) He is so pooped at the end
of the night it's hard to get him up sometimes for his morning potty. Too cute.
All in all just having a wonderful time getting to know Vedder and showing him
all that is great in life. Thank you so much for all you do & for bringing Vedder
lab-o-licious into my life. Best, T.T.
Vedder's background prior to adoption: He was surrendered by a family that did not do their
homework regarding the lab breed specifically the size they grow to and the amount of exercise
required. Prior to his adoption Vedder had very little exposure to anything outside his immediate
home as well as limited social skills and obedience. Prior to his adoption Lab Rescue volunteers
worked with this boy to give him the guidance he needed to be well on his journey with his new
family. In addition his new family has invested love and energy into continuing with the guidance this
boy requires to like a happy fulfilled life.

Bella adopted at the age of 3 - Feb 2010)
Some words from Bella's wonderful new family.
Bella has settle in quite well and knows our routine very well
now. She’s very eager every morning to get out for her walk
and come back for breakfast. She loves playing in the yard
with her brother Bear. They also have started to sleep in
the same bed, even though they have one each. She has
quite a little personality and absolutely loves attention. She
has recently learned “high-five”, and how to catch treats
when they are tossed to her.
Thank you again for helping us find Bella. M & P

Some words from Max's
Family: (April 2010)
It is 6 months to the day that we adopted Max
from your organization. It has been one of the
best things we have ever done. He is
absolutely one of the family and has endeared
himself to us so completely. We love Max.
His friendly disposition combined with his
comical side has been a blast. Yesterday he
went for what we think was his first swim. He
hesitated at first only going in chest deep but
decided to go for it after a few stop & go's.
Was quite funny actually.
He now has an insatiable appetite (a true
Labrador) and a constant desire to be with us
no matter where we go. He is a great car guy
and we look forward to taking him to the
cottage this summer.
Another round of "thank you's! This has been
such a great story to tell and we never tire of
it. Max is truly a great Labrador. We feel so
very lucky to have him. M.P.
Sunny's Story: (April 2010)
Sunny was adopted at age 12, found
wandering by himself in a field, was he
abandoned as his rip old age - who knows.
All we know is that when we were asked
by the local shelter to help this boy we
stepped in and did so. First to the vet's
and then into his new family. Where he is
happy, healthy and living a superb life with
his new fur siblings.
