Trooper, a rescued Labrador retriever, is looking for a new home

Special to the Times

"Greetings, folks! Trooper here. I am a friendly guy, 6 years old, with a thick yellow coat. I was with a family and then I was at the shelter … don't know why but I was really concerned. Then along came Labrador retriever Rescue and now I am secure once more. They are great folks and I love my foster family, but sure would like to find a new family of my own. Here are my plus points: 1. I enjoy cuddling with everyone. 2. I get along very well with other dogs. 3. I lived with cats. 4. My foster family has children and I like them, too. 5. I am a gentleman inside the house. 6. Did I say I like to cuddle! If you are looking for that special "Super Trooper" then I am your guy. Come visit and we can cuddle and play with the tennis ball, two of my favorite things." If interested in meeting or adopting Trooper or another lab, contact Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida at or call toll-free 1-866-464-5227. The rescue group has all of its labs microchipped, spayed or neutered, and up to date on shots. Each adoption comes with a 30-day prepaid pet health insurance plan. All applicants will have a home inspection and vet reference (if applicable).
