About Darcy

Adoption Fee: $400

Meet Darcy. So many of you have been following Darcy's story and her recovery. We are pleased to say she has been given the green light by our veterinarian to start looking for her forever home. Thank you to all of our incredible donors and her amazing, dedicated foster mom, who helped make Darcy's recovery possible.

Darcy is a beautiful petite female Golden Retriever of approximately 9-10 years old. This girl came to us after being dumped in a field w/ sheep and goats: no food, no water, no family. Our volunteer rushed to the shelter after being advised as to Darcy's condition. She was so happy to be saved, wanting to ride in the front seat of her foster mom's car. Darcy's tail thumped all the way happily home, over a 2-hour drive!

Darcy's first stop was the groomer for a bath and pampering she deserved and needed. Early the next morning, Darcy saw our vet. She had a severe ear and eye infection plus a skin infection, intestinal infection, decayed teeth, and a mass on her tail in addition to being severely underweight. After completing several rounds of tests, Darcy came home with her foster having seven medications! She needed to be bathed every other day with a medicated shampoo. We had our work cut out for us.

Miracles do happen. Darcy made noticeable daily progress. Her eyes improved, her ears cleared. Her coat glowed, and she gained weight steadily. Less than two months later, she was given a clean bill of health and was ready for her needed surgeries to remove the mass from her tail, dental, and her spay. We biopsied the mass, and we are happy to report it was benign.

Darcy is well behaved, including meeting her foster family's pets. Large dogs, small dogs, a cat, and turtles. She quickly learned the doggy door and never had an accident in the house. She has no food aggression, sits perfectly for her bowl to be placed down, with the other pets for her three meals per day.

She is a "Super Counter Surfer." Nothing is safe within her reach. Her new family will need to be diligent, making sure that counters remain cleared, safe from anything she can get put in her mouth. Gum, candy, medications, need to be put away in a locked cabinet.

Darcy walks perfectly on a leash, greeting everyone she meets. True to her breed, she loves to retrieve balls, and will frequently be seen carrying any stuffed toy around with her. She enjoys a comfy dog bed but quickly copied her foster mom's dogs and lounges on a couch or bed.

Darcy is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, microchipped, completed blood work done, and dental. She's now ready to meet her new family. This sweet girl will make a great companion for anyone.

If you have an interest in making Darcy part of your family, please complete our application. If you are already approved, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and express your interest in meeting Darcy!

Meet Betsy! She is a sweet and affectionate six-year-old female chocolate Labrador Retriever. She is attentive and a good listener and loves to be right by your side. Betsy is entirely housebroken! In the morning, she walks straight to the door and patiently waits to let her out. As most Labradors do, Betsy loves food, gets excited about her meals, and does a cute tap dance while waiting. Betsy is a little chunky and could lose a few pounds! She loves walks, so this shouldn't be too much of a challenge. Betsy is a counter surfer. She waits until she thinks you're not looking to jump up on the kitchen counter and other surfaces. None of her attempts have been successful and listens when you tell her no. She appears to have started to figure out that there isn't anything good up there, so the counter-surfing frequency has decreased. Betsy enjoys chewing on a Nylabone but has not chewed anything else in the house. She's hasn't attempted to grab anything else to chew (no remotes, no shoes, no sunglasses, etc.) After settling in, Betsy started using her voice a bit to "alert bark." She lets out a few deep barks when she hears someone outside or hears other neighborhood dogs. When it goes beyond a few barks, she is responsive to redirection. Her foster believes it is an appropriate amount of barking and certainly not excessive. Betsy sleeps through the night on the floor next to her foster parent's bed. She doesn't use the doggy bed, but she sometimes jumps up into her foster bed.  Betsy is not a fan of fireworks, and during the holiday weekend, there were several times it would take her longer to settle down. However, once she falls asleep, she stays asleep through the night and waits for her foster to get up.  Betsy loves her toys and plays nicely with her stuffed ones. She does not rip or tear them apart but walks around with one gently in her mouth. Betsy will play a short game of fetch with toys and initiate self-play by throwing the toy up in the air and chasing it. She plays a bit of "tug-of-war" and keeps it pretty gentle. Betsy LOVES walks. She doesn't seem to have any formal leash training, i.e., doesn't loose leash walk, but is pretty good on it. Betsy wants to be in front and pulls a bit, but not excessively. She sniffs a lot and likes it if you slow down and let her go at her own pace. Betsy enjoys going for walks around the neighborhood and getting in the car to visit local parks. She settles in nicely at home after a walk. Betsy will need some training to be an exercise/hiking companion. She loves to sort of meander on her walks and likes to stop frequently to sniff and investigate. Betsy is interested in greeting other dogs on a walk and pulls and whines a little to meet them, But she is easy to redirect and has passed plenty of dogs that she politely ignored. Betsy will sit and wait politely, but excitedly, for a treat. She needs a little work on taking treats gently and is doing great with corrections. Betsy knows "sit" and "paw." She is treat-motivated and eager to please, and will quickly sit if food or a treat is involved. Betsy is a major tail-wagger! All you need to do is glance in her direction, and she starts wagging her tail. Betsy is cuddly and affectionate. If you let her, she will snuggle up on the couch with her head in your lap. She does an adorable tap dance when she's excited, especially before food. Betsy is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped. She also received a complete exam and treated for an ear infection.  If you are interested in Betsy and are approved to adopt, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and put "BETSY" in the subject line to express your interest.  PLEASE DO NOT USE THE "ADOPT" BUTTON ON THIS PAGE IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED AN APPLICATION WITH WCLRR! PLEASE READ! Due to the overwhelming demand for dogs and the current shortage of Labradors and Golden Retrievers in need of rescue, your wait time to adopt could be very long. We are trying our best to get dogs to families, and your patience is appreciated. You may have a considerable wait time after applying and having your home interview. Neither one guarantees you will receive a dog.  Thank you for your understanding and patience. The WCLRR Team - "We're All About the Dogs" show less

Meet Marc! He is an extraordinary male Golden Retriever approximately three years old. Marc has good house manners and patiently sits while waiting for his meals. Marc enjoys curling up on the couch and watches TV with you.  Marc sleeps throughout the night, hopping up in the bed, laying his head next to you on the pillow. He will follow you around the house, backyard, just wanting a pet or an ear rub, but not a complete velcro dog. He is fine napping by himself or next to the other dogs a few feet away while you work.  Marc is in a foster home with another energetic Labrador and mellow petite Golden's – he gets along GREAT with all other dogs. He is learning about playing politely. He knows how to sit, comes when called, is house trained, and is a good boy, shows no signs of separation anxiety. Marc is a counter surfer! His new home needs to pay extra attention to items left on the counters. All food, medications, candy, gum, and other items should never be left out.  Marc is working on boundaries when humans eat, especially while sitting on the couch. He will do well in a home with other dogs. He observes his foster sisters' behavior and copies it, for sure, loves hanging out with them. Marc has not been tested around small children or cats and thus will not adopt him to a family with either.  Marc has been neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. If you believe Marc will be a good fit with your family and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org, put "MARC" in the subject line.  PLEASE DO NOT USE THE "ADOPT" BUTTON ON THIS PAGE IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED AN APPLICATION WITH WCLRR!

Meet Patsy! She is a female seven-month-old bouncy, playful chocolate Labrador Retriever. Patsy was surrendered to WCLRR when her family realized that a young, lively, energized puppy was not a good fit for their young toddlers and busy life. Patsy was not getting the type of attention and exercise required for a young puppy.  Patsy loves to play with other dogs and is a people lover. Patsy is crate trained and does excellent sleeping thought out the night or taking a nap in her crate. Patsy is house trained; she will go to the door and sit there to be let out. Patsy is a puppy and could have an accident in her new home while her new family learns a routine.  Patsy is working on her training with her foster and understands the word "NO." She also mastered "sit and stay" and responds accordingly.  Patsy is also working on her leash training, and her new family must continue with that. She has been walked with a harness and is doing well, but continued training will make her even better. Patsy is an intelligent dog, so it will not take her long to complete her training.  Patsy eats anything that does not move, so beware, especially in the garden. Patsy's new home will need to be puppy-proofed. All items such as shoes, eyeglasses, pillows, and anything else need to be put away. Counters will also need to be cleared of all items such as food, medicines, candy, so she can not get into things that can harm her.  Patsy loves her toys, and her new home should have a supply of healthy and safe items for her to chew, such as Nylabones.  Patsy loves to swim and will spend hours in the pool with a ball. She loves to jump in off the side of the pool at her foster home. She could be a great candidate as a "dock diver." Patsy also travels well in the car but needs some persuasion to get in and out of the vehicle.  Patsy does nip/bite and is learning that this is not acceptable behavior. Because of this, we would not place Patsy in a home with young children.  Patsy adores cuddling into you on the sofa at night and will take as much love as you can give her. Patsy has a lot of energy, so she needs a home where people will invest the time in her to complete the transition from pup to adult.  Patsy would like a home where her family is home much of the time. We believe a home with teenagers, and perhaps another dog would be ideal.  Patsy will be adopted with a spay contract. Her foster representative can discuss this with her new family.  Patsy is current on her vaccines and microchipped.  If you believe Patsy would be a good fit for your home, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and put "PATSY" in the subject line and express your interest in meeting Patsy.  PLEASE DO NOT USE THE "ADOPT" BUTTON ON THIS PAGE IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED AN APPLICATION WITH WCLRR!

Meet Vincent! He is a stunning three-year-old yellow male Labrador Retriever that is sweet, loving, and handsome. Vincent is almost white (but is considered yellow).  Vincent came to us when he was listed as a stray from a high kill shelter with severe flystrike on one ear. It has since healed, and his hair is growing back. We believe Vincent was an outside dog and not exposed to many things as he was shy and timid. He is now a delighted, curious dog and quick to wag his tail. Vincent is fostered in a home with an older Labrador who has helped to teach Vincent how good life can be. He has learned how to use the dog door and has become comfortable in the house. He walks well on a leash and is learning not to pull. Vincent will sleep on a dog bed in your bedroom but will join you on your bed if invited. Vincent is a well behaved, medium energy boy who loves tennis balls, playing fetch, and returning the ball to keep playing. He is not toy or food aggressive. He takes treats gently as he gives his right paw. He is good with small and large dogs. Vincent bonds strongly with his person, following their every move.  Vincent is good with children and knows some commands, including sit, down, out, gentle. He rides nicely in the car and will jump right in. Caution should be taken when opening house doors/gates as Vincent may try to exit. We believe Vincent would love a home with another dog but would be fine as an only if his people were home most of the time. Vincent is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, and microchipped.  If you are interested in adopting Vincent, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and put "VINCENT” in the subject line.  PLEASE DO NOT USE THE "ADOPT" BUTTON ON THIS PAGE IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED AN APPLICATION WITH WCLRR!
