Nutmeg – Chocolate Female, 4 years, 65 lbs.

Who is sweet as chocolate, cuddly as a teddy bear, and looking for a forever family to love? Give up? It’s me – Nutmeg the chocolate Labrador!! I am a 4 year old chocolate Labbie, searching for love and a family to cuddle up with forever. I used to have a family – well sort of. They didn’t take care of me except to feed me sometimes when they remembered. They made me have puppies so they could take them away and sell them. My beautiful chocolate coat became bleached from the sun and course and they didnt protect me from fleas. Otherwise, I was a backyard lawn ornament just craving to be part of something better than that. So I ended up taking a walk and landed in doggie jail. But luckily for me, I caught they eye of one of the defenders of dogs at the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno! I am now living with my awesome foster family while I hunt for my perfect forever family. They are taking great care of me while I search and I am learning what it’s liked to be loved. I do have some requirements for my new home – obviously, my new family must love chocolate lol, but they also must love to snuggle and provide plenty of belly rubs!

I am a well-behaved house dog and prefer to be indoors with my family. I do love to accompany my people on adventures and walk nicely on a leash. I am house and crate trained now too. I have excellent house manners and enjoy the company of other dogs my size, but would be totally fine being your one special girl. I am a ready-made family dog and am excited to settle down with my new family forever. I promise I will always be there to offer a gentle cuddle and warm Labbie kiss in the good times and the bad – I will be your loyal companion forever!
