    Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix

    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Spunky, the awesome 13 year old back lab mix with the energy level of a 7 year old, is available for adoption. Spunky was an owner surrender who sat in a shelter for 6 weeks because his owners were moving and said he was in pain. He had a severe ear infection, so yes, he was in pain! Duh!!!!!! After a day or two of adjusting to a home again, he has become a wonderful part of our family. He is loving and playful but settles quickly. He loves loves loves walks and shows no sign of being a senior walker even though he is said to have some arthritis. He takes medication daily and it really doesn't show. He also tested positive for Lyme and will need a retest in April. We currently have a resident dog and another foster dog and he gets along with both and often initiates play. He definitely lives up to his name. Although our daughter is 11 years old, we are told he has lived with children of many ages in his previous life. It is also said that he has lived with and loves cats. This dog meets the trifecta.

    Nick Foles

    Breed: Labrador Retriever
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Meet Nick Foles. Named after the MVP quarterback in the 2018 Superbowl, this gorgeous boy is 3 years old, 115 pounds, and looking for a new home. Sadly, his owners are looking to re-home him because of their granddaughter’s severe allergies. Because they are very attached to him, this was a tough decision and they are trusting Brookline to find him a great home. Nick is mixed with another large breed dog (maybe Mastiff or Great Dane) but he’s very labby looking and, more importantly, he has that loyal devoted personality that is so characteristic of labs. Nick’s absolute favorite activity is going for walks, so he’s looking for a family who enjoys them as much as he does. Maybe you’d like to make Nick part of your New Year’s resolutions?! He does have some leash reactivity towards other dogs, and the owners have been working on that. They have found that if you cross to the other side of the road, he does much better. Still his new family will need to continue to work on that. Trust us, Nick is worth it. Nick is great with kids, good free roam (although his owners are retired and around a lot) and a real snuggler. We think he’d be a lap dog if he could only fit! He’d be best as an only dog, and rumor has it that he likes to chase cats, so Nick would do best in a cat-free home. Nick is neutered, up to date with his vaccines and overall a very healthy boy with a beautiful coat. Please reach out to us if you think Nick might just be your MVP!

    Cindy

    Breed: Labrador Retriever
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Meet Cindy— Miss Cindy was a breeder dog on a farm until about six months ago. She must have been a good mother to all those puppies: she is gentle, easy-going, takes everything in stride, just goes with the flow. She lived with three young children on the farm, and she had plenty of canine companionship. She lives with a dog in her foster home and they get along like a couple of life-long friends. Cindy has two favorite things in the world. The first is food and the second is spending time with her people. If she can have both at the same time, she’s in heaven. She loves going out for walks, socializing with dogs and people she meets, and accepting as much attention as anyone is willing to give. She isn’t interested in chasing balls or tearing around in a frenzy, preferring a more sedate lifestyle. She’s happy hanging out near her people, following them from room to room in the house. If a treat or a scrap finds its way in her direction, so much the better. And bonus points are offered for hugs and cuddles! Cindy’s history with cats is unknown, but she has shown a keen interest in squirrels and bunnies and even some of the larger birds that occasionally cross her path. She will sometimes try to catch them, but has never come close. Her interest in chasing the little critters is the reason she might not get on well in a home with a cat. She would love to find a home where her people are around a good bit of the time. She points out that old saying: “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.” Cindy is an incredibly sweet and affectionate dog. After all her years of nurturing her litters of puppies she deserves some years of nurturing and love herself. Maybe yours is the home she’s been dreaming of!

    Sandy

    rescue
    Breed: Labrador Retriever
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Sandy is a 13 year-old beautiful and fluffy yellow lab. She’s like a big yellow teddy bear! Sandy came into rescue when her elderly owner had to move into a nursing home and could no longer care for her. In her senior years, Sandy prefers to spend her days snoozing. Who doesn’t enjoy a nap here or there?! She likes to snooze in the presence of others but will make do with the television or radio if her people all have somewhere else to go. Sandy is blind and does not like when other dogs approach her face, as she can’t see them. For this reason, Sandy is best placed as an only dog. However, Sandy has no problem living with cats and has done that successfully in the past. Sandy’s general pattern is three or four trips outside each day to sniff around a bit and take care of business. You have to go with her, as her guide, but it does not take much time or energy. Recently Sandy has become less confident with going up and down the single step into our house. She would do best with a harness for some help with things like this. Sandy’s ideal family would have no dogs, no steps, and a simple floor plan. She is looking for a wonderful home where she can enjoy her senior years!

    Molly

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Labrador Retriever
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). MEET MOLLY! Molly was surrendered to Brookline Labrador Retriever Rescue by her owner, a single mom with disabilities who has a 16 year old son, due to not being able to care for her any longer. The owner also struggled with hoarding, so when Molly was not in her crate she often picked-up trash from the floor to play with, raided open trash cans and counter surfed. The combination of the owner's disabilities and financial hardship made the decision to surrender Molly necessary. Though the owner and her son were heartbroken to reach this decision, they knew that it was the right thing to do for Molly, who was being crated the majority of the time, other than when she was taken out for walks by a hired dog walker. Due to being crated so much, Molly developed hygromas on her upper chest and elbows. A hygroma is a false bursa that develops over bony prominences and pressure points, especially in large breeds of dogs. Repeated trauma from lying on hard surfaces produces an inflammatory response, which results in a dense-walled, fluid-filled cavity. Two of Molly's hygromas, the ones on her chest and left elbow, became infected and surgery was performed to remove them. When she was surrendered to Brookline, it was right at the time for her post-op follow-up. Unfortunately, when her Foster Mom (FM) took her to have the stitches removed, her incisions re-opened, requiring a second surgery to re-close them. Since then, her incisions have healed nicely. To prevent future hygromas from forming, Molly has a nice soft comforter to lie on in her crate! Molly loves going for walks and would probably be satisfied just being taken on walks if a potential owner did not have a fenced yard, but FM supplements walks with potty breaks in her fenced back yard, which certainly makes life easier. Molly is not a super adventurous-type, likes to be close to her human(s), and does not have a strong prey drive. She has never attempted to jump gates in the house or the picket fence that surrounds FM's backyard. Molly walks well on a back or front clip harness or Gentle Leader, and loves to play with balls and toys, though she tends to hoard toys/bones/balls or anything she thinks is a toy. She is learning to share with the other dogs at FM's house, and has come a long way to learn doggie manners in foster care. Molly is a very gentle dog. Though she is not bold and pushy in a misbehaving way, she does crave close contact and will circle and lean into and against her human(s), though she does settle. She really enjoys attention, and though she does not jump up and put her paws on people, she will rear up slightly on her back paws in greeting, then come close to greet and rub up against you. Because she is a large dog, if you have young children (under 6-8 years old), Molly might not be your ideal dog because of these tendencies. Molly has been through a lot with her hygromas - as detailed above. They are healed now, and though the hair follicles were damaged and the spots on her elbows and chest will not re-grow hair, she has a beautiful, shiny coat otherwise! Molly was also tested for a possible thyroid imbalance due to notations in her earlier medical history while living with the original owner. Fortunately, her blood work came back normal! Molly often drinks heavily when she comes out of her crate, which makes sense since FM does not leave water for her in the crate. On those days, FM makes sure Molly gets outside for more frequent potty breaks. Molly came into foster care at FM's on October 5. About the beginning of November, on a quiet Sunday morning while relaxing with FM and the other dogs, Molly had a seizure while simply lying on the floor chewing a bone. Two days later, in the morning before FM went to work, she observed Molly stumbling awkwardly - a second, but very short and mild seizure. Later that same evening Molly had a third, medium seizure. Since then, FM has not observed any other episodes, nor has the dog sitter, family or friends who look in on dogs when FM is not home. After discussion with the vet who has been treating Molly since she's been in foster care, we (the vet, FM and Brookline's Board of Directors) have decided to continue close observation and start Molly on CBD oil for dogs. The costs are minimal - about $25/month. Since we are just starting Molly on the oil, the only way we - or an adoptive family - will know if it is effective is if she remains seizure free. Even if she only has a minor seizure once or twice a year, it is probably preferable to keep her on CBD Oil, as opposed to starting her on stronger medication like phenobarbital, which could damage her liver. Overall, for Molly's age - she turns 10 years old mid-February - she is in great shape, good health, and has plenty of energy and spunk! FM would love to see Molly with a person or family who is willing and able to commit time to her, since the first 9+ years of her life she was mostly crated and lived in less than ideal conditions. She is a truly gentle and affectionate girl - she loves, loves, loves getting petted, played with, and walked - ANY human attention at all is like heaven to her! However, because Molly is not demanding, pushy, or impatient, if she does not get attention, FM doesn't want to see Molly settling into the background of her people's life because they do not have time for her. She deserves so much more!!! And since she is a senior, FM would love to see her remaining years be filled with the attention, exercise, and affection she craves and deserves. Molly has great potential to be an ideal family member - a welcoming, fun pet who will love and adore her human(s) and bring great joy into their lives. Can you overlook an occasional accident in her crate when you need to leave her longer than the ideal maximum of 4 hours? Can you look the other way and blot a little urine from the floor or carpet if she leaks a bit once in awhile? Can you commit to walking Molly twice a day, unless the weather is horrible? (The walks need not be long or arduous - a stroll around the neighborhood will make her quite happy!) Can you stop what you are doing now and then to play tug with her, pat her head, scratch her belly, brush her coat and tell her what a good girl she is - to really love her? In return, Molly will adore you and be your best friend for the rest of her life!
