Sassy, Labrador retriever
Sassy is a winsome female Labrador retriever dog being cared for at Love of Labs.
Sassy is a social butterfly — she loves cats and dogs. She has mastered her house-training etiquette and has been vaccinated and spayed.
Sassy's current caretakers say:
Sassy is a friendly, energetic chocolate lab. Her foster mom says that she has more energy than she knows what to do with. She loves to play fetch or toss around her favorite toy, a stuffed squirrel named Joe. Sassy is still learning her manners, so she would love a family that will be patient with her, take her on long walks and teach her new things. When you're watching TV on the couch at night, she'll love to keep you company.

Rusty, golden retriever mix
Rusty is a sweet male golden retriever mix in the care of Lucky Dog Retreat Rescue, Inc.
Rusty's vaccinations are up to date, and he is neutered.
From Rusty's current caretaker:
Rusty is 12 years old and weighs 46 pounds. She gets a bit nervous when exposed to loud noises. As an outside dog, she was scared of fireworks. So, this sweet dog deserves a safe, loving home.
