About Dulce

Adoption Fee: $500

Meet Dulce! She is a one-year-old black Labrador Retriever mix with a glossy coat and beautiful puppy eyes. Dulce came to WCLRR after she surrendered to the shelter after her family found that Dulce's energy level was not a good fit with their young child, and Dulce nipped at the child.  

Dulce is a medium-to-high energy dog, the perfect combination of easy-going and spunky! She greets everyone she meets with enthusiasm, assumes everyone is ready to play and gives her belly rubs. She is happy to hang out on the couch and watch TV while chewing a bone or going on a nice neighborhood walk. Dulce also enjoys playing fetch. She has a lot of toys at her foster home, and she enjoys parading around the yard or house with them in her mouth. Dulce's foster says she walks like a dream on her harness/leash! Dulce enjoys regular walks during the week and is also very happy to go on a run or hike. 

Dulce knows a lot of commands, including Sit, Down, Stay, Place, Go to Bed, and many more. Dulce has been an excellent student learning from our trainer and has excelled in many areas.   Dulce has also been introduced to speech buttons! Dulce's new owner will need to work with our trainer first to learn her unique talents.  

Dulce is terrific with many different personalities of dogs. She even calibrates the activity level and temperament of the other dog and plays with them accordingly. Dulce calmly notices other dogs but doesn't pull to get to them on a walk. She's great with other dogs and animals in general. She previously lived in a home with a cat, and she had peaceful interactions with that cat. 

Dulce is fully house trained and crate trained. She sleeps quietly through the night in a crate in her foster's bedroom and waits patiently for her people to take her out and start their day. Dulce has mild to moderate separation anxiety and is currently on a natural supplement that keeps it in check. 

Dulce's ideal home would be an active single or couple with a secure yard looking for a buddy to take on walks or hikes or hang out and relax. Dulce gets along well with children, but she is young and does best with older children. Therefore, we will not place Dulce with small children. Instead, she would do well as an only dog or as a little sister to an adult dog that can "show her the ropes." 

Dulce is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.   

If you are interested in Dulce and have already been approved to adopt, please email ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "DULCE" in the subject line, explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Bear! He is a friendly 10-year-old black Labrador Retriever mix. Bear came to WCLRR when a Good Samaritan rescued him from a hoarding situation. The rescuer got Bear to a vet, who coincidentally also supported WCLRR. The vet contacted WCLRR to see if we could help, and we did!  Bear was significantly overweight at 136 pounds, and he could barely walk. Bear had a complete senior blood panel which showed that he is hyperthyroid. Bear is on inexpensive daily thyroid and anti-inflammatory medications to manage this condition. Bear also takes joint supplements. He also had a large benign lump on his hip, which the vet removed.  Bear is a low-activity dog primarily because of his weight. However, thanks to regular walks two or three times a day and a good diet regimen, Bear has lost 30 pounds in the last six months with his foster! As Bear has lost weight, his mobility and agility have improved significantly.  Bear loves being outside, waiting to meet new people and dogs. He was cooped up for the last several years in his previous home, so he is anxious to make up for lost time with a lot of interaction with people and other dogs! When he is excited to meet another dog, he can almost run! Bear's foster describes him as a "joy." He is a friendly boy with a sweet disposition. Bear is very friendly to all he meets, including children. He gets very excited when he sees another dog. He will walk briskly and e to meet them.  Bear is a large dog. He can be a little scary to smaller dogs. When he cannot play with them, Bear whines and barks. However, he is good with larger dogs and interacts with them nicely. Bear lives with two dogs, and they all get along well. Bear enjoys laying on the front lawn watching the world go by, waiting to meet new people and dogs. Bear doesn't go far on walks, often plopping down to rest and watch the world go by. He likes soft toys but is not obsessed with them. His foster thinks Bear's frequent rests on walks have more to do with his desire to stay outside rather than his physical limitations from his weight and lack of exercise. Bear sleeps on the floor or a dog bed in his foster's bedroom or the living room. He moves around during the night to find the most comfortable spot. He waits for his foster to get up to feed him and the other dogs, then go outside. Although Bear has lost a lot of weight and continues to improve, he is still limited to shorter walks, and his back right leg gets stiff because he tends to lay on it. His foster massages the leg to increase circulation. Still, it would probably be good for him to have some physical therapy to improve the agility in that leg. If that is not possible, he will still be a happy dog with a few short daily walks. While Bear has lost a lot of weight, he needs to lose more. Bear's new family should be ready to commit to maintaining his diet and exercise regimen to help him stay as healthy and active as possible.   Bear's ideal home would be a stable and supportive environment with an individual, couple, family, and another dog. The home should have a secure yard, and a fenced front yard would be a plus so that he can sit outside during the day and watch people. Bear is a sweet soul and excellent companion that has had a tough life. He deserves all the love and attention he can get. Bear is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, and is microchipped.  If you are interested in Bear and have already been approved to adopt, please email ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "BEAR" in the subject line, explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Carl! He is a 12-18-month-old black Labrador Retriever mix. Carl is a slender dog with a beautiful shiny coat. Carl lived in an Airstream travel trailer with seven other dogs when a good samaritan rescued them. Carl and two of his siblings came to WCLRR. Our volunteer immediately took the dogs to our veterinarian for complete exams, lab work, vaccinations, and spay and neuters. All three dogs were scared and timid, but in the short time they have been in foster, they have blossomed! Carl is a high-energy dog that loves to play! He likes to chase balls, although he's still learning to bring them back! He enjoys chewing on antlers, and de-stuffing toys is one of his favorite activities. Carl's foster family has a pool, and Carl loves it! He jumps in the pool when he can and runs along the steps, splashing and enjoying himself! Carl also loves to run and would be a great running partner! Carl is reserved when meeting new people. It takes him a little time to warm up to people and allow them to approach him. His new family needs to manage introductions so Carl can meet people slowly. Carl lives with another dog in his foster home, and the two play well together. Carl understands "no," but his new family will need to work with him on other commands. Carl's foster is working with him on house training. Carl has had a few accidents in the house, and his new family should let him outside frequently to reinforce potty training. Carl enjoys walks in the morning and evening. However, he does pull on the leash, especially if he sees a small creature like a bird. Carl's foster is working with him on leash training, and his new family will need to continue to help him learn to walk nicely on the leash.  Carl is crate trained and walks into his crate at bedtime. He is quiet at night and waits for his people to get up in the morning. Carl likes to put his paws up on counters to see what is available. He scratches the windows to be let in, so a doggy door would be a great option to give him the ability to come and go as needed. He also does jump up on people when he's excited.  Carl's ideal home would be with an active family in a house with a secure yard and maybe a pool. A family with older children and a young dog would give Carl plenty of companionship and opportunities to play and run off some of that energy! But unfortunately, he has not lived with cats or other small pets. Carl is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, and is microchipped.  If you are interested in Carl and have already been approved to adopt, please email ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "CARL" in the subject line, explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Dale! He is a 10-12-year-old chocolate Labrador Retriever with a sweet disposition and beautifully expressive eyes. Dale was surrendered to WCLRR when his owner moved and couldn't bring Dale with him. Dale has had a complete physical exam and senior bloodwork, and all came back as good. Dale does have a couple of common lipomas for labs, but our vet believed that they should be left alone due to his age. Dale believes that age is just a number. He may be a senior, but he has the energy level of a younger dog! He loves to run and is pretty fast for his age! His foster describes him as the happiest, rambunctious, most love-bugging pup you'll ever meet!  Dale knows to sit and stay. He is pretty good on the leash, but he hasn't been walked very much. He is house trained and hasn't had any accidents at his foster home. Dale sleeps on the floor next to his foster.  Dale is cautious and a bit fearful when meeting new people and needs time to "warm up" to them. Offering a few treats will help break the ice, but his new family should have patience with him and understand that Dale will take a few days to feel comfortable with them. When Dale came to WCLRR, he was wary of his foster and new home. But within a day, Dale began following his foster around. Soon Dale would come to his foster to get pets and kisses. Dale is now a very loving pup who "explodes with joy" when he sees his foster, even after a few minutes of separation! Dale's ideal home would be a calm environment, perhaps with an individual, couple, or family with older kids, where he can relax and enjoy being with his people. Dale may be a bit standoffish at first, but he's a Velcro boy at heart, and once he's comfortable, he wants to be around his people.  Dale is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, and is microchipped.  If you are interested in Dale and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "DALE" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Dixie! She is a female black Labrador Retriever mix, approximately one-to-two years old, with beautiful brown eyes and floppy ears. Dixie lived in an Airstream travel trailer with seven other dogs when a good samaritan rescued them.  Dixie and two of her siblings came to WCLRR. Our volunteer immediately took the dogs to our veterinarian for complete exams, lab work, vaccinations, and spay and neuters. All three dogs were scared and timid, but in the short time they have been in foster, they have blossomed! Dixie appears to have had a litter of puppies. When she first meets people or animals, Dixie is a little timid. She attached quickly to her foster mom, but it took her more time to warm up to the foster's husband and son and the three dogs. Dixie came out of her shell 24 -36 hours after she came to her foster home. However, she does sometimes jump up on people when she is excited, but each day getting better    Once Dixie is comfortable in her surroundings, she can be a high-energy girl ready to play! She gets along well with the other dogs and loves to play with them. She can sometimes play hard and run fast, but she responds well when corrected to be gentle with the foster's older dog.  Dixie hasn't shown any resource guarding issues. However, her foster feeds her separately because Dixie will check out the other dogs' food even if she isn't done eating. She sits with the other dogs at treat time, takes treats gently, and does not try to grab from other dogs. Dixie has a low to medium prey drive. She initially ignored her foster's cat but shortly began chasing him but each day she is fostered with the cat is getting better and ignoring the cat more and more.   She responds quickly when corrected   Dixie is house trained. she understands "no" and is working on "sit." However, Dixie has had no leash training, and she pulls and zig zags, making walks a challenge for Dixie and her foster. Her new family should work with Dixie to teach her that walks can be fun. Dixie will put her paws up on counters to see what might be interesting but hasn't taken anything. But, of course, her new family will want to keep counters and tables clear of food, medicines, and other items. Dixie sleeps in a dog bed in her foster's bedroom. She sleeps through the night and gets up with her people. Dixie's ideal home would be with a younger couple or family where someone is home most of the time.  Dixie would love a home with a pool where she could hang out with older kids that could play with her and help teach her manners. She is an adorable girl that loves to be loved. Still, she has a lot of energy. She needs a family that will invest the time necessary to give her the training to be confident and well-behaved. In addition, Dixie would enjoy a home with another young dog as a companion.  Dixie is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.  If you are interested in Dixie and have already been approved to adopt, please email ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "DIXIE" in the subject line, explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family.
