Baby Lightning

Labrador Retriever
German Pinscher, Mix

An adotable dog in Brentwood, CA

  • Baby
  • Large
  • Male

Lightning, and his brother Thunder, are simply adorable. They came to us from a shelter - how they ended up in a shelter we have no idea! Though it is obvious they are at least part Black Lab, we cannot say for certain what they are mixed with. They could be part German Shepherd Dog, and their smarter, cautious personalities speak to that. Whatever their mix, they are cute beyond all words.

Lightning is the more dominant of these two boys, though both are on the submissive side. They are cautious when meeting new people but come around quickly and in no time at all will adapt to a new home and family. They love other dogs of all sizes. They even sleep through the night in a crate without a peep. As for house training, they have had no accidents in their foster home, but their adopters are expected to watch them and make sure their pup continues on this good behavior.

If you would like to meet and potentially adopt one of these cuties, please go to our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - and click on Adoption Process. There you will find what we need from you including a link to our adoption application.

All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live.

Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.
