Grace, Labrador retriever

Grace is a female Labrador retriever dog being cared for at Love of Labs.

From Grace's current caretaker:

Grace is a six-year-old black lab mix who is happy that she will be finding her happily ever after soon. She is a small town gal adjusting to big city living, like drive-thru yogurt runs with her foster dad. He says Grace is the biggest lap dog he's ever met, because she loves to snuggle. If you are looking for a sweetheart, Grace is your gal.

From Coop's current caretaker:

Coop is a fun, happy and goofy guy who hasn't had the best start in life. He likes humans (although he may be a little too rough for younger children), stuffed toys that squeak and car rides. He loves to be silly and play outside but is also a very good cuddler.

Cori, Labrador retriever mix

Cori is a female Labrador retriever mix being kept at Heaven After Hell Rescue.

While Cori gets along with cats and dogs, we recommend she be placed in a home without small children. No need to worry: She's already house-trained. Cori's vaccinations are up to date, and she's spayed. She has some special needs, so please inquire about her specific requirements. 

Notes from Cori's caretakers:

Cori is your typical middle-aged gal. She love to snuggle, sleep and eat. Don’t let her miss a meal, or she’ll let you know all about it. She loves humans, but the little ones can be a bit too much. A home with older children would be best for her.
