GGLRR foster homes are often full when we find special Labs who we think deserve a chance. These Labs are in the process of getting into our program (evaluation, vet visit, etc) and having a foster identified gets us one step further in finding a forever home.

Foster needed: 7-year-old neutered black male Lab “Bear”
Background: His owner moved to Florida after leaving Bear with relatives, and he never came back to get Bear. Bear has been passed around among relatives who are unable to keep him. Bear is currently living with a young rowdy Rottweiler and an old grouchy Chihuahua.
Bear is neutered and house-broken, and he sleeps in his crate at night. His current caretakers reports that Bear is calm, kind, and friendly. While he has been left alone at home for 8+ hours in the last, he is currently left alone for no more than two hours and does fine hanging out with the other dogs. Besides “sit”, Bear does not know any commands. He is sort of all over the place on walks; doesn’t pull too hard though. Bear likes to play fetch, but doesn’t always bring the ball or stick back to you. Bear had gotten into some dustups with his roomie Rottie who can be a bit intrusive when it comes to bones and high-value toys. Doesn’t pay much mind to cats, and appears to accept the nearby presence of chickens and ducks in their pen.
