Lab Report: Bonded brothers Mario & Jack have found themselves in rescue at age 12

These lovely brothers are playful, friendly, leash-trained and good with children. Just look at those sweet, silver faces!

Mario and Jack are brothers who have been together their whole lives.

Grumpy old men? HARDLY!

These two sweet, old boys are brothers. And because their family was moving, they have found themselves in rescue at the age of 12. We are SO HOPING we can profile the lucky person or people who gives these sweet Labrador mixes their forever home. As soon as possible, in fact!

Mario and Jack are presently in the care of the West Valley Humane Society in Caldwell, ID, a brand-new grantee of the Grey Muzzle Organization, which graciously helps fund the care of senior dogs in rescue. As they spent their lives in an outdoor environment, Mario and Jack are not presently housebroken – but they are working on it, and with the help of a belly band and consistency, the folks at the rescue say they will pick it up quickly. Who says you can’t teach old dogs new tricks!?

Mario has wonderfully soulful eyes … but actually, so does his brother!

Big boy Mario weighs in at 71 pounds; brother Jack at 54.

Both are leash trained, friendly and playful — even with young children (how Lab of them!). Moderately active, they lived with two cats and are, as you can imagine, strongly bonded with one another. Adopted together, the fee will total $80 — a pittance for pups who enjoy running, playing, fetch, tug-o-war, walks and drinking plenty of water.

Both seem to be afraid of thunder – but we think whoever adopts them can cuddle those fears into submission.

Mario and Jack are up-to-date on vaccines, neutered and ready to go home. With you. TODAY!

Jack might be a little bit grayer than his brother!

Please share them, or go meet them for yourself. They will surely steal your heart.

A note about the Grey Muzzle Organization, whose staffers help us to find seniors to feature each Saturday…

This wonderful group improves the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue organizations, sanctuaries, and other non-profit groups nationwide.

Captain Jack cuts a handsome figure for the camera.

Neither shelter nor rescue, Grey Muzzle funds programs such as hospice care, senior dog adoption, medical screening, and other special programs to help old dogs at animal welfare organizations across the country.
