STOP...Don't Rush to judgment!! I may be 9 years old but I have the energy and agility of a much younger dog! I jump easily into the back of an SUV and I love to go on walks, car rides, or just about any adventure. I'm in great shape with a shiny healthy coat and none of those senior lumps or bumps. I'm currently hanging out in a foster home with a bunch of other Labs and I get along great with everyone! If you're looking for a fun loving, loyal little guy who is ready to be your new bestie then I may be the boy for you.
Rush was brought to a high kill shelter by his family of over 5 years due to a move. As a senior, black dog, he had scant chance of making it safely out of this shelter. We saw what a nice boy he was and rescued him right before his "review date". He is a friendly boy who greeted shelter dogs and a volunteer's dogs with wagging tail and happy demeanor. He enjoyed a nice walk with the volunteer's dogs and looks forward to getting out and about with his new family. Since he was relegated to the back yard by his previous owner, he is now learning the joys of being able to join the volunteer's family in the house. Rush has had a nice bath and is looking very handsome. He sits patiently for treats and his meals and comes when he's called. Belly rubs are a big favorite as is resting his head on your lap while you are reading, watching TV or working on your computer. He has a playful, engaging personality and will be a loving companion to his new family.
