Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno: Tollhouse Cookie, A True From Rags to Riches Story

by Debbie Crisp

Have you ever looked into the sad eyes of a forlorn dog and wished they could tell you what happened to lead to their current circumstances? As rescuers, we see this way too often. However, when we found Tollhouse Cookie, she was a very extreme case. Cookie was spotted off and on for about a year in the mountains near and below Shaver Lake. She was spotted several times running across a four-lane highway. In the heat of summer, and in the cold of winter, she tried to survive alone.

Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno: Bruce Almighty & Lacie

by Debbie Crisp

This month the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno is putting the spotlight on two really special and loving canines that have been with us for a while, mostly, we think, because they are bigger than most Labrador Retrievers. First, we have Bruce Almighty, a black male estimated to be about four years old, and eighty-eight pounds. Second, we have Lacie, a yellow male estimated to be about six years old and eighty pounds. Both are Lab mixes; Lacie is most likely with Great White Pyrenees.

Valley Animal Center: Bo, Formerly Known As Smiley

by Allix Ollivier

Bo is our beautiful, eight-year-old Labrador/Shepherd mix and one of the cutest new re-additions to our shelter. Bo, originally named Smiley due to his wonderfully contagious smile, was originally adopted out from our shelter six years ago. However, during the time Bo was with his adopted family, some unfortunate incidents occurred. Bo has hip dysplasia, which is when the hip ball and socket don’t develop normally.
