MEET DARRELL!! This good boy is about 4 years old and a new addition to LFS! Darrell was found as a stray and time was running out for him at the shelter, so LFS stepped in to give him a second chance. He is a super sweet, loving boy and will gladly roll over for a belly rub. Darrell seems to do well with other dogs and made friends with Maria (also adoptable) in no time. We’re still learning about Darrell and his personality, so check back soon for updates!
Sadly Darrell is heartworm positive, but he is starting treatment and will be heartworm free in no time! We recently took in quite a few heartworm positive dogs, and unfortunately treatment is pretty costly, so if you could please find it in your heart to donate to Darrell’s care, head on over to https://www.labradorfriends.com/donate-2/ to make a contribution. We are very thankful for any and all donations we get, no matter how big or small!!
Darrell will need a foster home where he can relax until he’s adopted. If you can foster Darrell, go to https://www.labradorfriends.com/foster-2/ or email email@example.com if you’re already an approved foster.
If you’d be interested in adopting Darrell, visit labradorfriends.com/how-to-adopt to fill out an adoption application, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re already approved.
DARRELL UPDATE!! This sweet sweet boy hasn’t been in the greatest spirits lately. Unfortunately a foster for him fell through, so he’s had to stay in boarding, where Darrell started to shut down. We couldn’t stand to see him so sad anymore, so we moved Darrell to another facility where he can at least get doggy daycare and spend some more time outside and out of a kennel. Darrell immediately perked up when he saw new people and other dogs. While doggy daycare will be a good temporary solution for Darrell to feel better, it isn’t the same as getting out of boarding and into a home. Please consider fostering this lovely dog. He deserves a comfy place to rest until he finds his forever home!
Darrell is a friendly boy, estimated around 4-5 years old. He may be a little bit older than that, but his teeth look great and he’s in pretty good athletic shape. Darrell can be a little bit shy at first and sometimes new surroundings make him nervous, but he’s as sweet as can be. He’s a pretty mellow boy, and I have yet to hear him bark. He appears to like other dogs, though he is not good with cats. He is kennel trained and walks politely on the leash. Darrell has successfully completed the first half of his heartworm treatment and has been doing well.
He loves daycare …. he is good with both big and little dogs, but he’s pretty chill and just hangs out with everyone. He’s a really calm dog. Only dogs I’ve seen him actually try to play with are little ones, so I think he likes little ones more. Darrell loves belly rubs and giving kisses. He has resting grump face but he’s actually doing really well.
