A Bonded Pair of Seniors
11 year old Black Labradors
Heathcliff – male,  92 lbs
Gertrude – female, 79 lbs

If you are ready for a load of puppy kisses and the eternal gratefulness and gratitude that comes with saving senior dog(s) then you might be ready to open your home to Heathcliff and Gertrude.

This bonded pair, a brother and sister were found sitting in the rain waiting for a miracle to find them, and one did.  A Good Samaritan scooped them up and brought them to a shelter where they were given lots of care and special treatment.

They even went to a temporary foster home for a few days, received veterinary care, senior dog blood tests, started on some arthritis medication and given high quality food and most important love.  While sadly their owner did not come forward, they served their shelter stay and came to Lab Rescue of Fresno.

Heathcliff and Gertrude have microchips that tell us their birthdate was in August 2009, and while this brother and sister may be grey in the muzzle they still show a lot of spunk for their age.

We know that this bonded pair:

  • Love giving kisses
  • Love attention and head scratches
  • Sleep nestled together on the same bed at night
  • Gentle towards everyone
  • Sleep quietly all night rarely making a sound!

They seem indifferent towards cats, friendly towards people, adorably protective of one another when new dogs first come around, but very gentle and happy-go-lucky senior K9 citizens.

Heathcliff is a happy boy with his tongue always hanging out, watching over his little sister Gertrude.  Gertrude is a bit more serious and shy and likes to watch and see things more, where brother Heathcliff is just the happiest boy without a care in the world.

We are placing them up for adoption or the possibility of a “foster to adopt” scenario for a local applicant if that would make handling a senior duo more feasible for a local family.
