Comet (160486) and Star (160487)

Watch Comet and Star play in the yard on 
Comet and Star are a bonded pair of 7 year old fox red Labs. Don't worry, you can tell them apart; Star has the pretty white streak on her nose. They are up to date on their shots and are heartworm negative.  They are good with other dogs and need to go to a cat free home because they will chase them. They are approved for kids aged 5 and up.  Comet weighs 53 lbs and Star weighs 52. They need a home with a fenced yard.

Update from Comet & Star's foster family - Aug 12, 2016:

Is there anything better than a dog that waits by the door and smothers you with snuggles the minute you get home? Is gentle and loving with young children and house guests? Is happily bursting with energy for ball chasing in the yard, yet relaxed and well-mannered in the house? A dog that loves long walks and cuddling on the couch? YES, there is something better!! ALL OF THAT TIMES TWO!!!! Bonded 7 year old ladies, Comet and Star are ready to find their forever family to love. Approved for kids 5 and up! Fenced yard and no kitty cats please.

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.
