|Animal ID: 7095Halima (female)|
alima is a sweet lab mix who is about 4 years old and 57lbs. She is still a recent arrival to OPH, and we're getting to know her. We are impressed, though. She was delightful at a recent event at a community fest with lots of people (big and small), other dogs, and even the odd horse and pony. It took her a little bit to get her bearings, but then she took it all in stride. Halima was the official greeter for the event and represented OPH on the stage. She has a beautiful disposition and the most wonderful golden eyes. She's a little hard on the leash, but gets easier as you go along. She'll need some practice. Apply to adopt her today and give Halima a second chance for happiness. (Less)

|Animal ID: 5095Rowlf (male)|
Rowlf will turn two years old this August and he weighs about 57 lbs. Rowlf was born into OPH and so we know his mother is part Labrador Retriever. We're not sure what else is in the mix, but it added some lankiness to his frame and helped bring out those distinctive black and tan markings. His foster family is leaning towards Hound. This boy was recently returned to OPH because he's not suitable for training as a service/therapy dog. He does love having a job to do, but he's a bit too high-octane for that trade. Rowlf would love an adopter with leadership skills who wants a best friend -- a dog to spend time with and teach new things like agility or go on adventures or jogs together. He is super well behaved in a lot of ways, but can be a bit willful and stubborn if you let him think he's the boss of things. He has really benefited from having structure and routine in his life. He has also responded very well to training with an e-collar. - knows basic commands - super smart - rides well in a car - well behaved in public - has lots of energy - crate trained - friendly with people he's met with his foster family in the home and on the go. He is learning not to jump as a way to say hello - loves treats and is highly food motivated - housebroken (zero accidents in his foster family's home) - well-behaved in the home, interested in what's on the table and counters so may need a little watching, but he hasn't gotten in to anything nor has he gotten on the furniture - he walks well with very little, if any, correction needed using a prong collar - good with most other dogs and he loves to play, now he doesn't always know when to stop playing so he will need a bit of guidance there; he loves to hang out with his foster family's dog, a two-year old female - he very much wants to catch his foster family's cat, so we would advise against a home with them. That said, with a good handler on the leash he has walked by cats and donkeys, and sniffed noses with horses without issue. He is learning how to live with his foster family's cat, but they aren't friends just yet. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 17-03-31-00133Bella (female)|
We rescued Bella from the Humane society in March 2014. When we first got her, she was timid around people and aggressive towards other dogs. We got her training and gave her lots of love, and she is much more relaxed around other dogs and new people. Bella now loves being close to us, she loves cuddles and kisses and she solicits attention and affection from whomever we have over to the apartment. She is very smart, alert, and eager to please. The reason we need to re-home her is we had a baby and they aren't doing great together. Bella and the baby were fine until the baby became a toddler. Unfortunately, our son's movements and behavior are that of a toddler - erratic and chaotic - and that puts Bella on edge. About a month ago, our son lunged at Bella and she got really close to his face and snarled at him. So, Bella needs a toddler-less and dog-less home. She would do best in a quieter area of the city or a suburb. Please let us know if you or anyone you know is interested in a new furry family member. Please see pictures of Miss Bella below! Many thanks, Elissa and Benjamin (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Lab in D.C.|
Lab Dogs can make good pets in D.C. if they match your IifestyIe. Labrador Retrievers are friendly dogs that are popular in multiple countries as family pets. Labs are friendly, playful, trainable dogs. Labrador Retrievers need companionship and are excellent with children and other dogs. Most labs are too friendly to make good guard dogs. Labs can adapt to apartment life with sufficient daily exercise but do best with a decent sized yard.
