Hope and Buddy here! We are a bonded pair of 5 year old chocolate labs and gorgeous to boot! We love to snuggle together and are never far apart. Until recently, our days were spent having puppies for our "breeder" owner who gave us up when we became tired and couldn't produce like they wanted. Thankfully, our guardian angels swooped in and helped us get to Lab Rescue so we can find a new family who will love and cherish us for the happy-go-lucky labbies we are.
As you can imagine, being parents kept us quite busy so we are not familiar with leash walking. We do, however, know some basic commands like sit, stay, and down. We would love our new family to work with a train to fill in the missing pieces to our training. We heard about these fancy harnesses that can help us learn not to pull. We are great in the house and do not go on furniture, only our special "big bed" that is just for us. We are house broken and enjoy lots of time outside playing.
We get along fabulously with the wee ones in our temporary home. We're very gentle and super affectionate. Our new family could have children as long as the parents understand everything involved with having a bonded pair ie: time and training commitment, financial resources and exercise routine. Our exposure to cats is unknown at this point and we have limited socialization with other dogs except a little one we met recently which was okay.
Hope loves to wade in the kiddie pool and Buddy wants nothing to do with it. Buddy would rather play ball or chew on a bone. We are both always ready for a good scratch or cuddle session.
We would love a new home with a fenced yard and a family with lots of time for exercise and attention and experience with the Labrador breed. Experience and willingness to work with a trainer would be ideal as well. Do you think you have a big enough heart to love a bonded pair??
