Breed: Labrador Retriever
Age: 8 years old
Flo is everything you’d expect and love in a Labrador! She’s an absolute joy and wonderful with everyone. She was part of the large group of dogs we brought over from both Morocco and Lebanon prior to the CDC import ban and we loved her instantly!
At some point while loose stray in Lebanon, Flo was shot and now has a pellet lodged in her shoulder. Unfortunately that pellet is causing her discomfort and negatively impacting her mobility. We’ve scheduled a visit with our orthopedic surgeon to see how we can best help her. Our hope is that the pellet can be safely removed and alleviate Flo’s discomfort.
Although Flo has discomfort and some pain she hasn’t let it negatively impact her mood or personality. This girl is all love and sweetness. She’s great with other dogs and has a calm energy that would make her a wonderful addition to almost any family. Flo will be adoption ready once we’ve had the chance to address her medical needs.
Here’s what you need to know about adopting a cat or dog from Marley's Mutts:
Each adoptable pet will be introduced on Facebook
Each pet will have its own profile here on the website
All pets will be spayed or neutered
All pets will be micro-chipped and shots will be up-to-date
Each pet has their own application to complete—make sure you use the right one (linked from their bio)
It’s important to us that each pet goes not just to a great home but to the “right” home. Our foster parents work with each pet to get to know them and their needs.
We try hard to list all of the pertinent info about each pet on the site so you can choose the pet that will fit with your family/lifestyle. If you don’t see a specific pet on the site, he/she is not ready for adoption. Please be patient and wait until the bio is listed. We don’t decide on a “first come, first served” basis but rather on a “who’s the very best fit.” So, don’t panic.
It’s not a quick process. We receive dozens of applications for each pet so please be patient. If you’re shortlisted you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.
If selected to meet one of our pets and you currently have pets, you’ll be asked to do an in-person pet intro; we don’t do the long-distance adoption thing. If you live out of town, plan a fun road trip to meet the pet in person.
Don’t be discouraged if your application is not selected. Remember, we get a lot of them! Trust us, the best fit for you is coming.
If you’re lucky and you do adopt a super amazing pet from Marley’s Mutts, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us for training, medication, or behavior questions. We’re here for you, and your pet.
