Hi! My Name Is BOSS

We're happy to tell you that BOSS has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.
This handsome & sweet boy is an 8 year old Yellow Lab who wants to love and to be loved. He currently lives a quiet life with his foster mom and 3 cats with everyone getting along splendidly. Boss is housetrained (has not had one accident); knows how to sit; takes treats with a very gentle mouth; loves to sleep in; minds his manners (does not get on the furniture); and loves to go on car rides especially when they include a trip through the Dairy Queen drive through! He mainly just wants to be “next to his person” and get a belly rub and/or a back scratch. Boss also happens to be totally blind due to PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy), though his blindness does not slow him down much. His current foster mom guides him up/down the steps in the home (bedrooms are on the 2nd floor and he sleeps upstairs at night). He does well with the steps, just need to encourage him to go slow on the trip down. His foster Mom’s home does not have a lot of clutter and he navigates through the house well. He remembers the placement of chairs and remembers where most corners/walls are. Boss takes a long mile walk each day and has good leash manners. On walks he needs some guidance to ensure that he doesn’t run into curbs, trees, poles, etc. Honestly though – he is a great walking pal and so enjoys being outside and investigating “pee mail” Boss is lovable boy, who gets along well with kids (though he has not been around small children). He is a solid 100 lbs and his tail gets to going when he is happy. Boss has a thyroid issue (low thyroid production) and will need to continue to take one small pill a day. He will do best in a quiet home without a lot of clutter or toys he can trip over. If you are looking for a new partner for new adventures, traveling, reading quietly on the weekends, or just being a good attentive friend – he is the “good boy” for you. Boss is a Yellow Labrador Retriever, weighs 100 lbs and was born in 2011. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, given flea/tick preventative, dewormed, tested negative for heartworm disease & started on preventative. Adoption fee is $350 to help offset the many expenses we have for vetting costs. We rely strictly on adoption fees and donations to continue to save the lives of orphaned & abandoned pets; 100% goes towards their care.
