Blue (#160204)

Blue is a handsome 9 year old neutered black male who is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. He is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages ten and up. Blue weighs 80 pounds and needs to gain about five more. Before coming to Lab Rescue, Blue lived his entire life tethered outdoors. This guy deserves a life of luxury from here on out. His health was neglected and he recently had several teeth extracted and more are scheduled for about a month after the first round. More info on this extremely good boy as we get to know him in foster care. He is looking for a forever home with the kind of love and comfort he has done without until now.

Update (and cuter pix!) from Blue's foster family - April 19,2016:

Introducing Blue, our handsome foster boy! He is a sweet, quiet gentleman who absolutely adores being near his people. He is super affectionate and just wants to be loved on. He is housebroken, walks great on lead, is a fast learner and easy to care for. His soulful brown eyes will melt your heart. This hunk of furry love can't wait for his furever home. He deserves it!!! 


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!

Valentina (#160089)

Valentina is a spayed yellow female who is 7 years 6 months of age. She is good with dogs, not good with cats (she is a little too interested), and approved for ages 10 and up. She weighs 52 pounds. Valentina is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. This girl is an owner give up from a hoarding situation and looking forward to better days. Valentina is not used to being alone and loves her people, so she needs a forever family who is home more often than not. She is a good car passenger. Valentina needs to go to a single family detached home in the suburbs or a rural area. 

Update from Valentina's foster family - April 15,2016:

Valentina is eager to learn new tricks and responds very well to delicious treats. She knows Sit and Heel very well and is working on her Down. She loves Kongs stuffed with treats. In the afternoon she waits by the window for her foster parents to come home from work and greets them with effusive love and her trademark helicopter tailspin. She sleeps in her own bed and loves an early morning walk in the open spaces of the park nearby. Valentina is getting better about being left alone when her humans go out on occasion as she becomes more confident in her foster home.

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.
