Brandy 7 year old female yellow Lab 88 pounds
**Foster or Adopter Needed**

Brandy is an absolute love with her humans and will make a fantastic in-home companion to some lucky parent or family. Currently Brandy is with a trainer working on her behavior around other dogs, especially other female dogs. She has progressed during training so that with skilled, confident handling, she is workable with large male dogs.

We are looking for an adopter or a foster home for Brandy to go to when she completes her training on April 27.
There are two kinds of homes we believe would be a good match for Brandy.
1.A home that would exercise Brandy in locations where she would not frequently encounter other dogs.
2.An experienced, confident, dog-savvy home that will be consistent in controlling and correcting Brandy if she acts out when encountering other dogs.

Background: Brandy is a beautiful AKC registered yellow female that lived with her family since she was a puppy and who had a number of litters of puppies herself. She was primarily a backyard dog used for breeding that didn’t get out much to socialize with other dogs, although she did have regular socialization with members of the family.
What Brandy’s Rescue Rep says: Brandy is ready for a fresh start with a family that is around a lot and makes her a part of family life inside the home and out. She may be 7, but she still has a lot of energy and she is looking forward to regular exercise. She is treat motivated and will be a quick study of a full range of obedience commands. She needs parent(s) committed to daily exercise and controlled food portions in order to get her back to a healthy weight.

Medical Information: She is microchipped, heartworm negative and current on shots. Brandy should lose about 8 pounds. We will coordinate her spay with her adopter.

If you are interested in Brandy, please call or e-mail Rescue Rep Sarah, 707.373.8920 or slwslwslw@comcast.net. Provide information about your family, other pets, home/property, schedule, activities, dog experience and anything else you think will help me understand the life Brandy would live if you adopt her.

Marge: 9-year-old female black Lab – 70 pounds

How does someone lose or misplace a wonderful dog? That is what Marge would like to know. “Oh, heck, let’s just find me a new home that will accept me as I am.”
What Marge’s foster says: This sweet old girl has earned a life of leisure. She’s happy with a very short walk or two each day and otherwise is content to spend her days lazing about. If you cuddle up with her you will enjoy her abundant curly, soft fur and soulful eyes. She loves attention and especially likes tummy rubs. She pulls a bit on the leash but she does sit and lie down on command. Her previous foster home observed her barking and lunging at other dogs. We live in a quiet neighborhood and have only seen her bark in response to other dogs barking at her. I think she would be best in a house with no other dogs. She is completely housebroken and does not shed much at all. You couldn’t find a lower maintenance animal companion as long as your home contains a few (orthopedic) dog beds!

What Marge’s Rescue Rep says: Marge is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm negative. She would be best in a home without another dog. No idea how she is with cats. We suspect she has some arthritis in her back legs and she is currently on some pain-reliever/anti-inflammatory meds. Marge is located in Pinole.
