River – Our Huggable Collection
Black Male, 105 lbs, Age 3

Do you feel lonesome? Do you want to take hikes through the great outdoors? Do you need an adventure companion to travel with you and see the great outdoors? Do you spend too much time watching TV and not enough time enjoying life? Well, if you answered yes to any of these questions, I have the perfect solution for you! Me – River! Because I want to do all of those things too! (And, truth be told, I really could stand to lose a few.) So, what are you waiting for? Why don’t we get together and have an adventure! I’m ready to go – you bring the love, I’ll bring the fun!

Now, really, you don’t want to miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity to have me in your life because you were too busy watching Reality TV! Why watch it when you can live it! I know, because I was given a second chance at life and I am not going to waste one minute of it! You see, my previous owners really didn’t want me. They gave me food instead of attention, totally ignoring my smart mind and eagerness to learn. They blamed me for pulling on the leash, but really, how do you expect me to act when a walk is an annual thing? So, instead of love I almost got a car ride to jail –where they hand out death sentences for the smallest of crimes. But for me, my “tail” didn’t end here, because these magical people known as the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno picked me up and gave me my second chance. I thought people like this were just stories dogs made up to get through the hard times, but no, they are real! And they also gave me my very own foster home filled with love and kindness (and treats) with until we can get together. I’m just waiting for you!

You should know inside this handsome ebony body lies a heart of gold. I love the people and dogs at my foster home, it is so good to feel like you belong! I may be a bit stingy with kisses, but when I give them they are sweet and true. I am also smart and so very eager to learn! I am quickly learning not to pull on the leash, how to sit, and wait, anything to please. I even figured out the puzzle plate and got the treat in five minutes flat. (This is kind of like a Rubik’s Cube for dogs.) I am learning to fetch – can you believe no one ever threw a ball for me before? I would really love to train with you! And of course, I am good in the house, potty-trained and am trusted outside of the crate. And after a day of adventure, I really prefer to sit by you because you are most dear thing in the world to me. Please, hurry and adopt me. It’s time to live life and not watch it go by.

River is available for adoption through the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno. He is loving and good with people and kids. is way too interested in the cat at his foster home so best no cats in his forever home. He is treat motivated and learns quickly and would benefit from some training and regular exercise to lose a few pounds. If you have room in your heart and home, you can’t go wrong with this adventure dog.
