Hershey is an 8 year old 88 pound chocolate male. We got a call on a Sunday morning that (brother and sister) Hershey and Lola’s dad had passed away and the dogs had been left in the back yard…could we rescue them? A family friend met us at the empty house and got us into the back yard where the dogs had been living on the side yard with igloos as protection from the weather. What we’ve learned just living with these 2 dogs is that they probably were never allowed in the house, never had much attention (they don’t know their names!), they don’t even know the sit command. Now they are living in the house, have learned to go outside through the doggie door to go potty, they sleep quietly in a crate, and they are the 2 sweetest dogs you’ll ever meet. Hershey has old fly strike scars on his ears from living outside, and had an unbrushed bleached coat, but otherwise in good shape. We got them all their vaccinations and tests, (and both got good warm baths!) but mostly what they are getting is lots and lots of attention. Lola is independent of her brother, but Hershey really looks to her for leadership. It would be wonderful if they could be adopted together, but if that isn’t possible, Lola could be adopted on her own, but Hershey will need another easy going dog companion. Hershey would enjoy a daily walk to keep him fit, but he’d be just as happy warming your feet while you watch TV. Both these dogs deserve to know what it’s like to become a Labs 2 Love dog where they will be spoiled rotten in their golden years.
