Red

Hi, I’m Red. I’m looking for a very special person to take care of me, either for the short term as a foster or ideally forever. I’m 3 years old, house trained, up to date on shots, and a “red” lab (hence, my name!). I weigh about 80 lbs and, even though I love food + love treats, will always be a little on the lean side. I am a really good boy who hasn’t had a great start. I came into Lab Rescue when my first family couldn’t keep me due to divorce, and I found what I hoped would be my right home, but the people turned out not to understand me so well so I am back. You see, I take a while to warm up and accept new people. If you let me make the first move, then you will have a friend for life.

When I came back, it turned out I had a torn CCL and was in a lot of pain! Now I have had CCL surgery and am five weeks into recovery and doing really well! I have seven weeks to go and am anxious to get out of the kennel and start walking and building up my strength again. I am really ready to start over with another family and hope that someone will give me a chance.

I do have some anxiety and behavioral issues as a result of my displacements, so I need a patient and dog savvy person to take care of me. Ideally that person or people will not have young children or other pets and will have time and energy to devote to my physical and emotional recovery. Will it be you? I am a really great boy, and I promise I’ll make  you a very loving companion!
