I am Marshall. Five years old, I weigh 60 pounds. I am seeking a new home. Well-mannered and easy on a leash, I am a housedog in search of another large breed, friendly dog to be my companion. A big, secure, fenced yard is a must and kind humans who can show me the attention I crave.

For several years I was in a loving home. Human circumstances changed and, sadly, I had to go to a shelter. Now I am so happy as I am in a loving foster home with a child, two cats and the biggest fenced yard I have ever seen!

Hello, I am Toby, I am a very sweet five year old black lab mix that really wants to find my happily ever after for more than one reason. See, I am heartworm positive and right now I am living at a boarding facility and can't start my treatment until I go home. I need a more relaxed environment to do my treatment. But don't worry, my treatment is fully paid for by LOLIN and once I'm through it, I will be brand spanking new!

Hi everyone, meet Boomer. Boomer is a six-year-old silver/gray, full blooded Labrador. He weighs approximately 120 lbs but thinks he’s a tiny Chihuahua! Boomer lives with kids that he loves to play outside with, chasing them around. He’s very protective so anytime the kids go out to play he’s right there with them either playing or keeping guard. He always wants to be near his family whether they’re inside or outside.
