Adoptable Medium Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotshousetrained

Cole is a 3-4 year old small lab mix that came to Atlanta Lab Rescue a couple of years. He was surrendered to a shelter and was picked up by the USDA to become a customs dog, but they discovered he had heartworms and returned him to the shelter. We took him and he was quickly adopted. A couple of weeks ago we received a call from the shelter telling us that someone (not the person we adopted him to) had dropped him off ???? So he’s back with ALR and hoping that this time around, we will get it right and he’ll have a FOREVER home. He is housetrained and good with most dogs, but his crazy life has left him a bit leery of some dogs. We would also like for him to get all of the attention that he has missed out on due to being placed in a bad home with a bad owner…


Cole and I went out for a run today on the Silver Comet and boy can this dog run! Cole is a super sweet Lovebug. He is about 40 lbs and definitely loves being with people. Cole loves giving kisses as you can see and just wants to be your buddy. much Cole loves being loved by people, he is best as a only dog so he can get all the attention! Cole is one happy dog and will make somebody a very happy dog owner!
