Labrador Retriever Rehoming Success Story – Vanilla – Albuquerque NM


Sweet Vanilla – A Senior Yellow Lab – Adopted in Albuquerque

Yellow Lab Rehoming New Mexico

Vanilla is a sweet wonderful, well behaved Yellow Labrador Retriever who was rehomed in about a week from her  Albuquerque home. A senior (9) who is healthy and up to date on shots. She needed a home where she will get lots of love and attention, exercise and companionship. We found it for her and are thrilled that she was able to have a happy ending in such a short time!

This was her profile when she needed our help.  Congrats & Good Luck Vanilla!!


Hi, My name is Vanilla!

Are you an empty nester? Me too! I am a really sweet, well behaved older (9) female Yellow Lab. I have no health problems, am spayed and up to date on all my shots. I LOVE people, and enjoy nothing better than to be with my favorite humans. And that’s the sad thing – my boys have grown up and moved on to college, and their Dad has to travel and be away extensively for work. That leaves me home all alone much of the time, and I am so very lonely.

As much as my family loves me, they know that it is not good for me to spend so much time on my own. They want what is best for me, and that is to be in the loving midst of a family. A place where there is always a human to adore, snuggle with, play fetch in the yard with, go for walks and hikes with, and share my days with. I would so love to join a family where someone is home most of the time to hang out with me. Whether you are a single who is retired and stays home a lot, a couple, someone who works from home, or a young family with a stay at home Mom, I will be the perfect addition to your family.

I will bring my leash and transport crate with me to my new home. Please find room in your heart and home for me. I’m a great old doggie with many good days ahead to share with you.

Love and licks,

Vanilla’s Personality

Very good natured. Still has the energy of a puppy. Likes everyone. Could never be a guard dog.

Vanilla’s Current Home Environment

Vanilla grew up with my two sons in the house but they have both moved away to college so my home is quiet now. Vanilla spends most of the day alone which is a shame because she loves people.

Vanilla’s Current Family:

It is just Vanilla and myself in my home since my older son and then my younger son moved away to college. I travel often with my work and until recently had a friend who watched Vanilla when I was away if my younger son could not. I lost that friend and now struggle to get Vanilla taken care of when I travel.

Vanilla’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?

She loves to go for walks and hikes.

Vanilla’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:

I am hoping Vanilla can wind up with a family where someone is around most of the time as she truly loves company.
