Cindy (#160112)

Cindy is a 9 year old spayed black female who weighs 65 pounds. This sweet girl ended up in rescue when her owner fell on her and they both ended up in the hospital. Cindy broke no bones, was a bit bruised and banged up but she is getting the care she needs to heal. This sweet lady is current on vaccines and is heartworm negative. She is a good rider, easy on the leash, and is both house trained and crate trained. Cindy is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approve for ages 10 and up.

Update from Cindy's foster family - Jul 5, 2016:

Cindy spent the weekend with a new foster family, to include two male resident labs (1.5 yr old black lab and 10 yr old yellow lab). She did fabulous! Her legs may not be as great as they used to be, but she took the steps to the backyard at her own pace. Once she was down the steps, she enjoyed her time in the yard....to include chasing around the younger 1.5 year old lab. We had a neighborhood party with about 15 people and she didn't seem to mind.

She went on two walks a day....only a few blocks...but kept up with the other dogs with no problem! Cindy was very easy on the leash! She was very content in the house and enjoyed relaxing on the dog beds....no attempt to get on the furniture. Cindy slept throughout the entire night, and had no desire to get up at 6am with the resident dogs....she definitely enjoyed her beauty sleep. She's fairly quiet, but does "talk" when she wants something....to go outside, when she's hungry, or when she wasn't quite sure where in the house we are. Cindy is slowing down a bit, but perfect if you're looking for a companion that is low maintenance

May 20, 2016: Cindy is enjoying the time in her foster home and with her foster brother! She'll play pounce him on her rickety old legs and he'll do zoomies that screech to a halt right at her feet. When she's feeling extra spry she'll chase him around the yard and he'll run at half speed so she can keep up. She has also grown more confident on stairs and no longer has trouble, even when it's wet outside. We can tell she's getting stronger and feeling better. We even went on a few walks with her! Cindy isn't very good on the leash, but she's so old and slow that she's easy to manage despite all of her zig zagging. We go a little less than a mile, and she is excited and peppy almost the whole way. She only slows down when we have to walk up a big hill to get back home. 

Cindy is really adorable when she asks for pets and scritches. She'll walk up to you and bonk her head into your knee so you can scratch her ears, or she'll turn around and give a big lab lean if she wants rump scritches. When she's lying on a dog bed, she loves belly rubs, and if you stop, she gently puts a paw on your arm to tell you to keep going.

Commander (#150933)


Commander is a 10 year old neutered black male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs and is approved for children aged 10 and up. Commander weighs 71 lbs, which is a good weight for him. Commander would like to go a single family home in a suburban or rural area. Commander is friendly and loves to be pet and loved on. He is an active senior gentleman, but likes lounging with his people too. Commander loves car rides and going on walks. He is great on the lead, and is house and crate trained. Commander has a skin condition called Seborrhea which has caused him to lose some of his fur. He is currently on medication to help control his symptoms. Commander knows there is a family out there that sees him for the gorgeous stately gentleman that he is. He can’t wait to meet them!

Resources for Adopters
Thank you for adopting a lab from Lab Rescue of the LRCP.  Every year we find special homes like yours for hundreds of labs and along the way we have learned a lot that we hope can help you too. This section of our website is just for you and we hope it contains useful tips that can make the transition to your home move smoothly.

Remember that relationships don't just happen.  They take time and effort and along the way there may be bumps in the road.  That's to be expected but there are things that you can do to ease everyone's transition.  Don't be surprised by the occasional naughty behavior; it's normal.

If you have a question that doesn't appear in our resources section then please reach out to your adoption coordinator and he or she can get you the answers that you need.
