Chance #2 (#170769)

Chance #2 is a 9 year old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 67 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Chance is approved for ages 10 and up.  Chance is a super easy, well-mannered house guest. He loves walks and car rides, is great on lead and riding. He does well when meeting other dogs. He loves people, peanut butter, vegetables, belly rubs, the couch, and bed. The resident girls are getting on well with him. He is house trained, just has to go out frequently when we are home. He has never had an accident when left alone while we are out, and he is perfectly behaved in the house. He is a velcro lab but somehow manages to never be underfoot. Chance does stairs just fine, but needs help getting his back end up on the couch, bed, and into the car. He is stiff when sitting down but is fine going on long walks. His fur is growing back nicely. He is such a love bug and will do better in a home where people are around more than not.

Update from Chance's Foster Family - Dec 3, 2017: Please give Chance a chance! Chance is a 9 year young, silly, happy-go-lucky, sweet and affectionate boy. He loves everyone he meets (2 and 4 legged), gives great kisses and awesome snuggles. His tail never stop wagging! He adores walks, runs on the beach, playing ball, couch snuggles, snacks (loves cucumbers), belly scratches, rolling in the grass, car rides and living life to the fullest! He has plenty of energy outside but is easy going inside. He can be left alone, uncrated, without incident. He is an all around perfect guy who would make someone a great companion. Call your AC while you still have the "chance" (sorry, I can't help myself)!

Koko (#170329)

Koko is a 7 year old girl, who weighs 56 lbs but needs to lose a few to get to her ideal weight. She is up to date on her vaccinations and is heartworm negative. She will need a physical fence. She has perfect house manners and does not need to be crated. She is approved for kids 10 and up, is good with other dogs, but seems too interested in cats to live with them.  Koko loves to cuddle, long walks and squeaky toys. Koko has diabetes and needs one insulin injection each day to keep her happy and healthy.

Update from Koko's foster on Oct 8, 2017: Koko is playful, affectionate, smart as a whip, and loves long walks and car rides. She is perfect in the house, and is not crated. Koko needs a fenced in yard only because she will not poop on a leash, though her foster family is working with her on that and she's making progress. A few weeks ago she was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus but one simple insulin injection daily has restored her to her normal, exuberant self. Koko does fine in an end unit townhouse with a ton of activity and traffic and rarely barks unless someone comes to the door. She would probably be best as an only pet but can and does live with another dog whom she has learned to trust. Koko is good on walks and loves to say hello to the neighbors. She does not like meeting neighborhood dogs face to face but is fine sitting at a comfortable distance when her people are chatting with another dog owner. 

Update from Koko's foster on Aug 21, 2017: KoKo is a dream in the house and a smart, affectionate girl who only wants to please and get belly rubs in return. She loves to go for walks and could jog with you but also fine hanging out and watching a little TV and cuddling. She's great in the car and would love trips especially those involving water. Baby pool in the back yard works in the mean time. 

Watch her with her foster brother on  
Koko is a lovely frosted girl who will do most anything for a delicious treat! She was eager to show off her sit, down and impressive tongue shot for the camera!

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.
