Rylee – Yellow Female, 5 years old, 90 lbs

Are you looking to add some sunshine to your life? I sure am! My name is Rylee and I am looking for my one and only forever family to light up my life with love! I have had a pretty dark life so far. Born in a local puppy mill, I was sold to whoever was willing to pay up. I was sold at 6 weeks old, far too young for a pup to be separated from her mother and siblings. Not much is known about my life with my prior “family” but they surrendered me to their veterinarian and requested to euthanize me because I tested positive for valley fever, so likely life was not so great for me. Luckily, the veterinarian refused to euthanize me since it is treatable and helped me find my way to those angels at Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno. Now I have my chance to finally let my light shine and give my heart to a family who will return all the love I give.

I am a sweet girl who loves to get attention from my people. In my foster home, I have discovered these awesome things called toys – I have never seen them before and oh my goodness they are so much fun!!! I especially like those squeaky toys! I also love, love to swim and splash in water – I am a Labrador after all! I am house-trained, crate-trained, and I know “sit” and am quickly picking up other commands. I get along well with other large dogs and I am quite scared of cats. I am getting accustom to small dogs, but I am not very comfortable around them quite yet. I was likely not exposed to a lot of different playmates in my prior life so I am still learning! One of my favorite activities is going on a nice long walk with my people. Honestly, any activity where I can be next to my people is my favorite <3

Rylee is such a sweet loving Labrador who deserves to finally have a family that loves and appreciates her. She has so much love to give! Rylee is a fast learner who is quickly learning how to play like a dog, as it seems she was likely not given much attention or opportunity to play in her prior life. Rylee gets along great with people of all ages and plays well with large dogs – she will be a great family dog! She may even be ok with a dog-savvy cat, as she seems frightened by them and goes out of her way to avoid feline friends. All Rylee wants is a loving family to put the sunshine back in her life and in return, she will fill your days with love and light for the rest of her life!
