Meet Seger!

 

Hi, I’m Seger and I really need a Foster or Foster-to-Adopt! I’m looking for my very own rock n’ roll, or at least play and walk, family! I love to play! I love playing with people, with my toys, and with other dogs; I could be the only pup in the home and can see myself rolling along with a dog sibling. I love going on walks, although I’m still getting used to getting that harness on. I’d love to sniff and explore the whole world, and would make a great hiking buddy. I am sweet and playful, but I am still a puppy, and need someone with lots of treats to work on my training with me!

Are you able to give me a home? If you’re a fan of Old Time Rock N Roll, or just throwing a ball and snuggling on the couch, I’m the pup for you!

  • Dog friendly

  • No cats

  • Kids 10+

  • High energy, always ready to go, go, go!

Meet Cash!

 

Hello there! I’m Cash, and I am so-o-o-o excited to tell you about me! I am half Golden Retriever, half Pointer! Are you looking for a hobby sport dog, fully obedience trained, a high energy dog who would be a great hiking partner? Well look no further, I’m your guy! If you’re looking for a cuddly Golden Retriever, well sorry, but that’s not me. I just turned one, I weigh 65 lbs., and I’m ALL puppy! I am so high energy and have been sent to a trainer who says I have the temperament and drive of a Pointer and I’d be a great hobby sport dog. The trainer says I’m ‘neutral’ toward most other dogs – I would much prefer to retrieve for you than play with another dog, the trainer also says no young kids (teenagers are OK), and no cats. I love all kinds of balls, even deflated soccer balls. I love to fetch, tug, and I love all kinds of toys. I even love my crate! Actually, I love life!! I need someone who’s ready for my energy, has lots of patience, will continue with my training, and spend lots of time with me. I wouldn’t be a good fit for a busy family without the time to devote to me, but why would they not want to? I’m so adorable!

Hugs, Cash

Must Know:

  • Bubba (#2) 4 years, Male, Black with white patch on chest, 56lbs

  • Dog friendly

  • Cats – unknown

  • Kid friendly 5+

  • 5ft or 6ft physical fence required (no 4 ft or invisible/electric fence)

  • Medium energy

  • Treated for heartworms by LRGR

  • Special Needs: Currently on seizure medicine

Meet Bubba!

Hi world! I have been with LRGR since early December of 2021. Before LRGR, I spent most of my life outside and now that I have experienced what I can call the “dream life” with my fantastic foster family, I know exactly what I want in my furever home - all the attention and affection!

I am extremely dog friendly and love to tussle with my foster doggy brother who is 100 lbs, and I especially love playing tug of war with him! I do get excited when I see other dogs while out with my foster family and want to play with them as well…maybe they could be my tusslin’ or tuggin’ partner too?

Previously living outside put me a little behind schedule in learning some basic house manners, but I promise I am progressing - slowly but surely! I am very loving and eager to please, so I do enjoy my training sessions and appreciate all the effort my foster family has put into me thus far. My foster family is continuing to work with me on my leash skills - I do still pull a little, and I know high-five! I am still working on “stay” and “wait”; I do sit before feeding, but need lots of reminders to stay sitting before I can eat… I am a foodie - very big foodie - food is life! Speaking of food, food puzzles are my favorite for mental stimulation! I am ecstatic when I get to meet new people so I still need some work on how to greet people like a proper gentleman.

Are you an outdoorsy family? If so, please pick me! I love exploring outside - sunbathing, fetching, roaming the backyard, and smelling everything - take me on adventures too! A yard/fence would be ideal for me because I do unfortunately bolt out the door.

Please know I truly do have so much love to give and just want to be by your side 24/7. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE attention + affection and want nothing more than to curl up next to you on the couch and lay my head in your lap. I do not want to be ignored and will politely nudge your hand if you stop petting me.

If I am the perfect pup for you, please complete an application to adopt me so we can become best friends and make many, many fun memories together!

Love, Bubba!

  • Dog friendly: LOVES to play with other dogs

  • Cat friendly, but dog-savvy cat required

  • Energy level – medium

  • Needs time to warm up to new people

  • Kid friendly 12+

  • Fenced yard required of at least 5ft

Meet Laddy!

 

I’m Laddy, a young, playful gentleman looking for a playmate. Playmate must be a canine, male or female, gender does not matter. Daily play sessions of tug a war and of course a game of good, old, chase is always expected. Having a human that enjoys outings in the woods and strolls in the neighborhood is a plus. On outings, I will hold my head up high, prancing like a horse, while taking in all the sights and sounds. No need to tense up when passing other dogs, as I like them all!

 In the evening, I like to snuggle by my human and have a calming chew to relax after a day of training, playing and exploring. Once relaxed, I will roll on my back, legs out and take a much-needed nap. 

 

Having started my first year of life without many experiences outside my birthplace gave me a slow start. But now, my confidence is growing, and I am learning new things daily.  My foster Mom has taught me many commands such as sit, down, come, place, touch, off and crate. I love to train using positive reinforcement I am looking forward to many years of unconditional love, outdoor adventures and nestling up for snuggles on the couch.

Hello there! I am Suzy, a beautiful, mature, 10 year old female looking for her forever home. When you look at me, you might think that I am all beauty but guess what, I also have an amazing brain! You would never know this but I am blind and sometimes a little hard of hearing. When I moved into my foster home, in 24 hrs, I already knew my way about and felt comfortable there.Told you I was smart! I am a friendly girl who enjoys meeting other dogs through parallel leash introduction. Once I meet them, I am very happy playing with them in a backyard! I have not met any humans whom I haven't loved. If you have hands to rub my belly, I am all yours! I am a very simple, loving girl; I enjoy food, belly rubs and naps! I love knowing that my humans are near and could easily be called a velcro dog! I am very affectionate and will nudge you and roll on the ground just to get some love! I am looking for a family who would enjoy quiet evenings together, snuggling next to each other and giving me all the belly rubs that you possibly can!

Meet Missy!

 

Hi friends, I'm Missy and I'm looking for a loving home where I can play, dance, and show you how much love I have to give! They say age is just a number, and I'll prove that to you! I love walks so much that I can barely sit still for my harness! And when I'm out on my walks, watch out world - I am a lady on a mission to sniff everything! My foster mom says I need two walks a day and I agree! I like meeting other dogs, playing catch, and retrieving. I love my toys and blankets; and I don't destroy them - I just love to play and snuggle with them. I get along fine with dogs and am happy to be the only dog or have a dog-sibling in your house. In fact, I just love everything (except the vacuum - whoa, that thing is scary!). If I'm not playing, I am happy to nap in my crate bundled up in my three favorite blankets. Do you sleep with only one blanket? You really should try three; I'll show you how great it is! I also like to lay by your feet and will give your hands a gentle nudge to remind you to pet me (belly rubs are the best!). Did you know dogs can dance? I like to dance and chase my tail to get attention. My foster mom says I am a wiggler because I just get so excited for love and attention. If you have love to give (and extra blankets!), I would love to meet you!

  • Energy level-low

  • Needs lots of patience and time

Meet Hawking!

 

Greetings friends and future family! My name is Hawking and I am an amazing 7 year old male. You might be wondering how I came to be named. Well, it’s very simple. I was named after Stephen Hawking, who like me, has physical challenges but who is exceptional on the inside. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am completely blind and almost completely deaf. Some people might take this as a death sentence; I take it as just a small obstacle in the way. Yes, I do need a little bit of help to get stuff done but it all works out at the end. When I need to go outside, my foster dad takes me in his arms and places me in the yard while on a leash. He is my eye seeing dad! He helps me maneuver around and not hit anything. He has the patience of a saint! Inside the house, I like hanging out on my bed or near it. I like feeling my humans close to me, that always brings me comfort. I am very calm, a little shy sometimes but I love meeting humans. Head and jowl rubs are my favorite thing in the world! That is, along with treats and flavored chews! I am trying to learn “come” by receiving gentle forward strokes on my chin. One very special thing about me is that I thrive with love. I love all sorts of affection and by knowing I am loved and not considered a nuisance. I am looking for a family with patience, who will give me love and affection. My foster dad says that I will steal someone's heart because I am so grateful for any kind of affection given to me. So while I may never catch frisbees or retrieve, I will shower you with my love and return every bit of your affection a hundred-fold.

Hi there!! My name is Chesa, as in Chesa-peake!! I am a 12 year old girl who weighs around 109lbs and is looking for her forever home. I am extremely friendly and get along with everyone. I am very sweet and loving and have always made friends with every dog I’ve met. When I meet people, my tail wags like crazy and you can see me smile! I just love life!! As I’ve gotten older, I have become a bit of a couch potato but I will still try to play and make you happy with whatever you want to do! I enjoy lounging on my dog bed and on my favorite loveseat. When it gets very hot outside, I have fun playing in the water, splashing all around or getting sprayed with a hose but I won’t get in a pool nor a large body of water.

  • Millie needs either a 5’ or higher fence or enough space to safely run

Meet Millie!

 

Hi everyone, I'm Millie, and I’m new here. I’m young and just starting to learn what being a dog is about. I’m learning that people are really cool – I take a minute to warm up to new people but once I know you, I am happy being part of your group – especially if your group includes giving me pets and cuddles. I really like kids (after I get to know them of course); their hugs make me smile! Spending time with my people is what I love the most! Everyone tells me I’m super smart! I’ve learned tons of commands – I even wait to eat until you tell me “okay”! I know, I was surprised I could do that too! Especially because I love food! Right now, I’m using my big brain to remember to stay off the counters, even when that delicious food is up there! I like to play with my dog puzzles when I’m not training because learning is the best! I would love to keep learning tricks, especially if the learning comes with those crunchy treats – yummmm! And, of course, I always have time to run and play; I love fetch, speedy running, playing with other dogs, and playing with my toys. I love my stuffed Gator – we are besties! I carry him around, sleep with him under the desk while the people do their work, and bring him over when its snuggle time (Gator doesn’t always respect my people’s personal space but we’re working on that together). The only place I don’t take Gator is over the fence. Yes, I have jumped over the 4’ fence; I didn’t mean to end up in the street, I just couldn’t let that squirrel get away! My people say that I should have a taller fence, or enough space to chase squirrels without worrying about traffic. My people also told me to tell you “if you’re looking for a sweet, smart companion who will be happy to join you for a hike in the woods, a Netflix streaming session, or a particularly boring video conference call, Millie is your girl.” If your call is really boring, I’ll even let you borrow my doggie puzzle.

Meet Leo!

 

“Leo in the house! Let’s play!” I’m Leo and I’m a sweet, very silly, boy on a mission to have all the fun the world can offer! I love people, and dogs, and cats, and balls, and walks, and, well, the only thing I don’t love is doorbells on the TV – how rude! I am the perfect dog to have around! Every time you come home, I will be so excited to see you! After a hard day at work, after a walk to the mailbox, it doesn’t matter- I’ll make your day! And I’m an environmentalist too! After about 10 minutes in the shower, I will stick my head in and remind you to stop wasting water and come play. And you don’t need to worry about any Leo-reflections breaking in; I will grumble at them to get lost! See, I am a puppy of many talents. Sometimes my talent for silliness goes unappreciated, like when I take things so you’ll chase me, or when I remove the outside of the tennis balls (I’m investigating, Mom!), but its Ok, because when I’m being extra-silly, I get extra walks and play time! And that’s a win because I love to play outside and go for walks; although I’m still working on not pulling so hard on the leash – it’s a struggle because no one seems as excited to go as I am! My Foster mom also says I’m bigger than I think (she mostly says this when I sit on her lap), but I don’t know what she’s talking about – I’m the perfect lap-size!

I’m a puppy that loves to play and I’d love to play with you! I am looking for someone to play with me, take me outside on adventures, and give me a lap to snuggle on! Is this you? And do you have an extra tennis ball?

Meet Jack!

Howdy do! My name is Jack and I am the new boy in town! I just moved to this wonderful area from North Carolina and I am looking for my forever home. I am only 13 months old but in reality, I am an old soul. I love relaxing and snuggling with my humans and just taking it easy. I enjoy playing with other dogs and I know that there is so much I can learn from them! I still get a little nervous when I meet someone new or when I am in a new situation but after a while, I do warm up! Walks around the neighborhood are awesome and I have discovered that I enjoy brisk walks and even light jogs! And you know what comes after those things? A great nap! My foster mom says that I would love to watch the 2pm soap operas and snuggle all afternoon if I possibly could! I love hanging out in the yard and letting the sun warm up my beautiful coat. When I first got to my foster mom’s house, I was an escape artist but as I found my place in the house, I am happy to inform you that I don’t escape anymore!

When I am with someone I love and who loves me back, I get this huge smile on my face and all is right in the world. Are you the one who will put a permanent smile on my face? I am looking for a family who enjoys the simple things in life like a quiet snuggle, a little jog, a nap, and a lot of love to give. I will make the perfect companion, I am loyal and loving and will make your life complete!
