Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. -- Rodger A. Caras
Adults to Adopt :)
All of our dogs are family. Whether with us for 8 weeks, 5 years, or a lifetime, a Lab in our care is a cherished friend and sacred charge. Decisions about what is best for each of our Labs, therefore, must transcend the sentimental: from time to time we offer mature dogs for adoption in order to avoid compromising on standards of care or parsing attention were our population to grow too large. If you are on the search for a good Lab but not in a "puppy stage" frame of mind, we welcome inquiries. LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
Irene is turning 1 year of age in July 2021 and ready for her new family...
for Adoption: Loblolly's Irene Adler/ 1 year old female; hip, elbow, and eye health guaranteed through 2 years of age
Irene is an intelligent and personable soul, still in the child stage of her life but beyond the challenges of her infancy. She walks well on leash, accepts crating, and comports herself well in the house, as well as understands basic commands such as "no" and "sit." She is a child of covid, thus does not have extensive time outside in society, but she handled herself well for her rabies vaccine and microchip visit, so we feel she'll acclimate well to any social environment given positive support. Irene is on monthly prevention for heart worms, protected by Bravecto for fleas, and current on her vaccines. As per our written guarantee on orthopedic health, we ask any adopting family to refrain from spaying her until 16 months of age according to best practices which show a meaningful correlation between long term joint health and deferred spaying in larger breed dogs. Irene's pedigree reflects our Windancing heritage, and we place her only to prevent overpopulation in our breeding program, as she is a very lovely Labrador. She has an eager and sweet personality, as well as robust athleticism which would lend itself well to an active family. Her adoption fee is $3500 limited registration. Serious inquiries welcome.
