Hi,
My boyfriend and I are the proud parents of a MLR dog we rescued in December, her name used to be Tinkerbell, now she is Sam. She is the greatest! I just wanted to hear how everyone else feels about their labby. I had lost my black lab last year after 15 years together and always knew labs were the best. Sam is the bright spot in our day! We are looking forward to many adventures with out chocolate baby, thanks MLR!

Sam and I are really excited to start doing some work for Midwest labs! We will be doing home visits soon and also working the pet expo in March. We want to get as many labs adopted as possible!

I adopted Rev a few months ago, he didn't respond to his name very well, so we renamed him Rebel, which he knows very well now.
He is a great dog and spoiled as can be. I have been told I "maul" him with affection, is there anything wrong with that? He seems to enjoy it. He is on his back more than his feet getting his belly rubbed. Loves to go for walks and rides in the car. He is a great companion.

After losing my last dog of 10 years, I really missed the companionship of a dog. I dreaded the idea of going through puppy-hood again, so I decided that I would adopt an older dog and save myself the hassle of house training and all of the other fun stuff that accompanies puppies...god love them. I'd always wanted a Lab, so searching the Internet, I came across MLRR and my new companion Kiko. When Kiko came to MLRR, he was heart worm positive and very thin. Luckily thanks to the treatment he received from MLRR and his caring foster mom Allison, Kiko is now a happy and healthy dog. I must say I was a little concerned about the fact that he was originally tested heart worm positive, but after doing some research I found that heart worm is definitely treatable and has a high success rate. In Kiko's case that's absolutely true as he was recently tested and found to be heart worm free. As for my choice to go with an older dog, I could not be happier with Kiko. From the first day he entered my home, he was a perfect dog. I could not have asked for a better companion. Kiko has also just recently completed his obedience training where he was a excellent student as you'll see from the attached picture. He's going to move on to advanced training were he will also be used and a demo dog for the class orientation. So...in short its safe to say that I could not be happier with MLRR and Kiko. I think its also safe to say that Kiko's pretty happy also, but I'll let you decide based on the attached picture. I will just close by saying anyone who has any concern about adopting a heart worm positive dog should not give it a second thought.
