Midwest Labrador Retriever Rescue, MLRR, is an all volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to finding loving, permanent homes for unwanted or abandoned Labrador Retrievers. All rescued Labs are placed in foster homes where they can be evaluated for temperament and level of training before being adopted.

My name is Holli but my friends call me Holli Beary! I am a "star" of my own having appeared on the "U & Me In The Morning" show during the month MLRR rescues were featured. I had a great time and was a fave among the staff there!
I am a beautiful chocolate lab and only 6 years old. My favorite things are chasing tennis balls, snuggling on the couch, learning new things, belly rubs and I want to mention again - chasing and retrieving tennis balls. I am a quick learner especially when treats are involved. I can't wait to be the star of my training classes!
I traveled all the way from Missouri to get here. I wasn't treated like a star back there. My owners kept me chained in the back yard my entire life. I even had a litter of puppies! Then they dumped me in a shelter when they adopted a new puppy, saying I was too old and they didn't want me anymore. MLRR heard about me and gave me a second chance for a good life! As soon as I arrived, I was treated for heartworms and hookworms. I was starting to feel special already! I learned how to play with tennis balls, squeaky toys and people, and had good food and the best bones to chew on. So good! Unfortunately, in the midst of all this I started to not feel well. I had developed a horrible upper respiratory infection along with pneumonia and possibly a strain of the dog flu all at the same time. I was in and out of the hospital several times. It was really rough and I almost didn't make it - but I did and now I can add "survivor" to "star." I am full of energy and loving life!
The next thing on my "A" list is to put my paw print on a "forever" family's heart! The only thing I ask is to be the only dog in your home (and no cats, please). In exchange I will follow you around, sit with you, snuggle with you, learn new things with you, play fetch with, be your BFF and just love you.
I will be your "star" if you will be mine? Please meet me!
