Adele – Adopted 07/15/2014

LFS_AdoptedDog2014_AdeleHappy Gotcha Day Adele!
Adele was adopted by her foster mom this weekend and we are so happy for her as she obviously loves her foster mama!



I’m Adele. You probably already know that I was found in a parking lot withDallas.  I was so thin that you could count my ribs from a distance.  It’s amazing what a few groceries will do!  I look beautiful now. 

Moms (my foster mom) keeps trying to figure out where I came from.  I wish I could tell her, but we all know dogs can’t speak.  She’s figured out a few things from looking me over really good.  I have two scars on my neck where I can’t grow any fur.  She thinks it’s from a collar issue or maybe I was chained up.  They told her I had no teeth in the front of my mouth.  She figured out that I have spent so much time chewing on the bars of my cage that I have worn my front teeth down to the gums and even damaged my canine teeth.  I won’t take any dog chewies or treats from anyone.  But moms figured out that if she puts them down by my head when I’m laying down I’ll take my time chewing it.  I gotta keep working my back teeth to keep them bright and healthy!  But be careful when you’re in the kitchen.  The minute you open the refrigerator door, I’m there.  Good things come out of the refrigerator, especially chicken and cheese, my favorites.

Moms told her friend the other day that I’m not housebroken.  I’m doing my best to figure it out and think I’m making progress.  I guess I’m around 5 years old, so give me time.  I don’t think I’ve lived in an actual house before.  This is a whole new world for me.  I just love to rub my entire body along the corner of the wall cause it feels sooooo good.  It’s great not being cooped up in a cage any more.  I think I’ve had lots of puppies, I just don’t remember how many.   And boy dogs should keep their distance; it takes me a long time to trust them. 

 I’m looking for a very special home.  I don’t like to be left alone.  I want to be with my people.  I’m a professional attention hound and don’t give up easily.  I’ll come over and nudge your hand.  If that doesn’t work I’ll try to climb in your lap.  And if that doesn’t work I’ll roll over on my back and show you my tummy.  How could you resist!  If you find the right spot I’ll close my eyes and melt in to the floor.  Ah, that’s just heaven!

 I’m very loyal and follow moms around everywhere.  She thinks I’m so sweet but I need to find my confidence.  I came from a really bad place and am learning about new things every day.  If you’re looking for a true companion and will spend lots of time with me I’m your girl! 

UPDATE FROM FOSTER MOM: Adele is still a little shy but slowing she is coming out of her shell. Her and I just got back from a nice walk and she walks really well on the leash.  She is timid but oh so sweet.  My son and his girlfriend came over today and she coward a bit when they first walked in but was okay after they loved on her. So many things have changed in her life in the last few weeks so we are sure she just needs some stability and love and she will soon relax and gain confidence.

    Thank you!

      Hi, yes Adele is available. She is very good with people and slowly getting more used to kids. We do not know her past life and she is a little unsure but slowly gaining confidence. I dont know how she is with cats but I can try to find out. She has not health issues that we know of and she is spayed and vaccinated. To adopt her the place to start is to get approved for adoption. Start with going to and click on the Adopt button/picture to see our adoption policies. There you will find the adoption application. Complete it, submit it, and pay the $15 processing fee. We will approve you for adoption in a couple of days and then contact you to discuss our dogs and set up an appointment to meet them. You can see in the “available labs” all the dogs we currently have. Our adoption fee is $275 plus a refundable $100 for small puppies. For the answer to the most common questions look under our “FAQs” section at

      Feel free to email me if you have any questions or if you have any problem with the application,

    Adele is so beautiful! Is she still available, and have you had a chance to determine if she is cat friendly?

    I have two senior indoor only Siamese and a senior female rat terrier. I also have two 1/2 acres fully fenced in. I am a disabled veteran and am looking for a friendly lab to train as a companion dog for me. I also want you to know that my pets ARE my babies and love an treat them as family.

    God Bless you for all you do!

    Hello, Was wondering if Adele is still available and also is she housebroken yet .Also although we plan on keeping a new dog in the house with our current lab mix pet, do you think she would be ok outside on nice days while we are at work in a 4 foot chain link fence with another dog and two doghouses? I wanted to make sure we did not get a new dog that is a digger or a fence jumper. Do you think she would be ok with another male lab mix dog? and what about cats? We lost a dog recently and are looking to add a companion to the family. Thank you for any info. Holly

      Adele is housebroken and she is not a digger or a jumper. In fact she does not leave your side most of the times. She is very easy. She is currently in a home with two other dogs.

    Hi, please update her profile if you can. For example is she still not housebroken? I think the old profile may be the reason why she is not adopted yet. She looks lovely!!

    Hi Gillian!
    In the thread of comments I do see that Adele has now been housebroken for quite a while. 🙂
    Also, many of her gorgeous photos are from very recent adoption events. Thanks so much. 🙂

    It’s the ideal time to have a handful of blueprints for any end and it’s really time and energy to smile. We have discover this particular upload and if I may I have to advocate people a number of useful challenges or strategies. Maybe you can write up coming articles mentioning the next few paragraphs. I have to read through even more areas of that!

    My 11 -year -old autistic, epileptic sweet girl and I are looking for another service dog. To be honest, we are still grieving the lose of our 13year old yellow lab that was our first service dog. This sweet lab sounds trainable for me because she sounds like she attaches well to her owners and would calm my child when she has meltdowns. What do you think? She would be with us everywhere ( school, shopping, etc..)

    Nicholle, please fill out out our adoption app if you haven’t already. I will get some feedback from her foster on your question and get back to you.
    Thank you for your interest,
