Rescue Me ID: 14-09-10-00707'Lainee' The Cuddler (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lainee - Gorgeous Young Labrador Retriever Mix For Adoption in Bethesda, MD Looking for cuteness on steroids in the form of an adorable Chocolate Labrador Retriever mix? Lainee is an absolutely heart melting, healthy, young Lab mix looking for a loving home in the Bethesda area or nearby. If you would like to offer this lovely lass a loving, forever home where she will be cherished, well cared for and given tons of attention, please fill out our adoption form here: or call Debbie at for more information. My favorite activities are cuddling, snuggling, and'| um'| did I mention that I love to cuddle? ... (Read More)Lainee's Personality: Lainee is very sweet and loving. She was abused and I tried to give her a loving forever home but I just don't have the time anymore. She is very afraid of larger dogs but does well with small dogs and absolutely loves to cuddle and play. Lainee's Current Home Environment: My home environment is pretty calm but I am up late and so is she. She will sleep for as long as I'm sleeping and doesn't want to bother anyone. She just wants to love someone and have them love her back! Lainee's Current Family: I have a smaller 6 month old Blue pitbull as well, who she adores and acts as a mother to. I also have two roommates and everyone is pretty quiet and sweet. Lainee's Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities? Lainee loves all toys but is allergic to rawhide. She will eat any time of food and also loves to sleep and cuddle up next to you. Cute Lainee Story: Over the past year I've had a few health issues and when I am unable to be up and about throughout the day Lainee lies with me and licks my face until she knows that I'm going to be alright. Why is Lainee Being Rehomed? She has gotten too afraid of larger dogs and has had problems with my parents dog so they cannot take care of her. I also am in full-time school and need to start doing internships and clubs so I will not be home enough to provide her the care she needs throughout the day. Lainee's Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be: I am looking for a loving family of any age or size. One who loves dogs and understands that Lainee has had a tough life and is willing to love her with all their hearts. She is best as an only dog but would also do well with a smaller dog. I am also looking for a family who has a fenced in backyard so she can run and play as she pleases. Additional Comments: Lainee is the most sweet and loving dog I have ever met and was unfortunately abused and given a hard time for the first 1 1/2 of her life. I wish I could keep her but I want her to have a better life than what I'm able to provide. I also have another 6 month old blue pitbull who is extremely friendly and loving and Lainee and him, Yoshi, do great together so if there is a home willing to take both dogs that would be fantastic. Thank you so much for your help! (Less)

Lab    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Reba is an amazing dog. She is very high energy and was born to hunt (though she has never been trained to do so). She loves to run and swim. She is great with people but doesn't do well with other dogs. She would thrive in a home without children or other animals.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in D.C.
    Dogs can make good pets in D.C. if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!
