This gorgeous Gold Coast Labrador only wants the simple things in life… and love.

Dumpling was abandoned by her previous owners and did not have the best start in life.

She was left at the pound when she was 10 – alone, overweight and blind. Have your waterworks started yet?

In an ad posted to Facebook, her story reads, “I had some puppies over the years and I guess my old owners didn’t need me anymore.”

The sweet post continues, “Since being in care I have lost over 13 kg so I would like a new family to help me stay on this weight loss journey (although I really don’t have much more weight to lose). As I am now older I find that small frequent walks are perfect for me.”

All Dumpling wants is a nice warm home to see out her final years. Isn’t this the most heart-warming & heartbreaking thing, ever?


She is available for adoption now through Labrador Rescue.  Dumpling has been desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and heartworm tested. The ad is calling for the right family to adopt her for a small rehoming fee of $300.
