2 1/2 year old neutered black male, 70 lbs
Romeo is a happy, playful, energetic lab with a lot of love to give. He was surrendered to MBLRR by his family because they simply didn’t have enough time to spend with him with work and busy schedules. Romeo is a good looking boy…slim, muscular and athletic, with a lovely coat and big brown eyes. He is completely housebroken and has excellent house manners. He DOES love to snuggle on the couch and we want him to be able to do that in his new home. He is as calm and mellow in the house as he is excitable and energetic outside. Romeo is a retrieving fanatic and if there’s a ball in sight, it has his name on it. He loves to run and play with toys and adores other dogs. He and the foster’s female lab are great buddies and love to play together. We would love Romeo to have a dog buddy if at all possible and will give preference to families with another playful dog. Romeo is also great with cats, easy going and friendly. He will come when called and knows sit, stay and down, tho sit is the only solid command. He pulls hard on a leash, but walks really well with an Easy Walk harness. He is good in the car, but very excited because he expects all car rides to end up in some fun place. He has never been to the beach or swimming, but we are pretty sure he’ll love it. He is not a chewer. Romeo will jump up in excitement on occasion, but not all the time. He is good with kids, tho because he’s a strong boy with a tail that wags all the time (and which his fosters call a “weapon of mass destruction”), we think kids should be age 8 or older. But he’d love to play with them and if they will throw the ball, he’d be in heaven. Romeo is a snuggler and a cuddler and loves being with his people. As with all of our labs, we want someone to be home with him during the day, tho Romeo would also be a great dog to take to work. He needs an active family who will provide him with lots of exercise. Romeo loves people and is friendly and happy with everyone he meets. He will be a great family dog.

5 year old neutered black lab/dane mix, 93 lbs
Petey is a lovable, happy boy who adores people. He’s a big boy, and has been with his person since he was rescued as a puppy from an animal shelter. His owner is a senior and her health is failing. Petey is just too much for her at this point but she loves him dearly, so she’s asked MBLRR to find him a wonderful family. Peter is mostly lab with maybe a touch of Great Dane in him….a great combination. He has fabulous, expressive eyes and a soft coat. He’s overweight right now but is on a diet and has already lost a few pounds. We think 85 lbs would be a great weight for him. Petey is completely housebroken and is calm in the house. But if you have anything edible on your kitchen counter, tho, he will find it, so all food needs to be put away. Petey has also helped himself to a knick knack or two in his life, but a lot of that is because he isn’t getting any exercise, and he’s looking for things to do. All he needs are two walks a day. He adores his walks and walks well on a Freedom harness (which comes with him). He loves to retrieve too. Petey is fabulous with other dogs and lives with a small terrier mix. He is good with all dogs, both large and small. He met lots of dogs he’d never met the other day while off leash on Carmel Beach and was wonderful with all of them. He is fine running in the surf but is not a swimmer. He’s unknown with cats. Petey knows sit and stay (sort of) and will come when called if you have treats. When Petey is excited, he can initially jump up, so should not be with young kids. But kids 10 and over would be perfect. He adores people and is a friend to everyone he meets. He’s a very cuddly boy too and adores affection. If you let him snuggle with you in your bed sometimes, he’s in heaven…tho he takes up most of the bed. He’s a confident, trusting boy who always has a happy smile on his face, and he’ll be a great addition to a lucky family.
For more information on Petey, please call Judy @ (831) 261-3409. Petey is located in Carmel.
2 year old neutered white male, 85 lbs
Kane is a big teddy bear of a boy. He is an English lab and has a huge blocky head, cute ears, and a stocky body with the classic otter tail. Kane spent much of his first year in a kennel. His second owner had him on a big property with other dogs, but Kane never had the chance to get out in the world and socialize, so he’s a bit insecure. That said, he’s doing really well and is responding superbly to consistency and training. He’s a love bug and adores getting big hugs from his fosters. He’s an easy dog to hug. He’s a happy boy and he’s now housebroken. He needs supervision in the house or he’ll help himself to pillows on the couch or other fun things he finds. Kane is crate trained and feels secure a crate, so that’s where he will want to be if he’s left alone for an hour or two. He has learned to go to his dog bed while his people are eating and does well with that. He sleeps in his crate at night. Kane loves to play with toys, especially the round rubber donut that his fosters have. He also loves to play with their female lab. They run and chase each other and love to play tug. Then they just hang out. He loves to run after balls, but hasn’t yet retrieved one. We are sure he will in time, but he’s not going to be an avid retriever. Kane is learning commands but needs more work on that. He walks quite well on a leash using a martingale collar. He is good in the car. He’s never been to the ocean but we know he loves water because after drinking out of his water dish, he dumps it over and plays in it. He’s still very much a puppy in so many ways. Kane is a fantastic dog but needs a family who will work with him. He’s active but not high energy, so a couple of nice walks a day will do just fine. We’re sure he would be good with kids, but because of his size, we think kids age 10 and older would be best. And, as always, we want someone to be around most of the day. He will be fine with another dog and would love to have a dog buddy. In the right home, he could also be an only dog. We adore this big guy! Just look at that face!
Kane is going to his new home on Monday!! He’s excited! Thanks to all who called on him!
