Our Labs Available for Adoption

The labs listed on this page are always changing. Every day labs are adopted and new labs join us while they wait for their new forever home. If you are interested in adopting one of these labs from Lab Rescue, please fill out our adoption application and send it to us online (or by fax or mail). Lab Rescue of the LRCP asks that you read about the entire adoption process before submitting your application. We often receive questions about why so few labs are approved for young children. You can read about how we make that determination in the adoption process section of the website. Please note that the website is not the most up to date source of information. Some labs may have been adopted before the website shows them as adopted. 

Lab Rescue LRCP rescues and places dogs in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and northeast North Carolina (30 miles east of I-95 and north of the Pamlico Sound). Adopters must travel to Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC, with their family – human and canine – to meet the dog they want to adopt.

If you live outside of the Lab Rescue service area and would like to adopt, please review the list of rescues elsewhere in the country, available at www.thelabradorclub.com, do a  Google search on Lab Rescue and your location, or search on Petfinder.com or Adoptapet.com to find a rescue who places Labs near you.

Available Labs


Apollo (180354)

Apollo is a 2.5 year old fox red male who is good with dogs and unknown with cats. He weighs 75 pounds and is heartworm negative. However, he will need to be tested again in six months as he was a stray so we have no proof of prior preventives. This goofy boy is a good passenger for road trips and is keeping his run clean at the kennel. He is approved for ages 10 and up and must go to a detached single-family home in the suburbs or a rural area. Apollo's fun fact is that he only has half a tail, but that thing is wagging almost all the time! More on this handsome guy as we get to know him better.



Asher (180312)

 
Asher is a 1 year old chocolate boy who is neutered, good with dogs and approved for ages 10 and up. He is unknown with cats. Asher is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. Because he was a stray with no history of preventives, he will need a heartworm follow up in six months. Asher must go to a single-family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural setting and he needs a fenced yard. Asher is a young guy who will benefit from obedience training and will come with a training addendum.  Asher had a rough start before coming into Lab Rescue and was treated for multiple painful injuries including a broken pelvis. Asher is very good-natured and a happy guy looking forward to forever happiness with a family that can give him the training and attention he needs. He weighs 47 pounds. 

Update from Asher's foster family - Jun 18, 2018: Asher is very sweet and quiet. He hasn't barked yet, but he will whine when left alone in the crate. He has migrated to sleeping in the bedroom with my dog instead of the crate. He loves to snuggle, loves kids and especially loves belly rubs. Asher is very timid. He doesn't like loud noises, vacuum cleaners, running vehicles, or walking far from home. Piano playing and kids yelling don't phase him, though. He is doing 5 minute walks but doesn't like to go away from the yard. Walking on leash is new. 

Update from Asher's foster family - May 28, 2018: Asher is such a sweetie. He loves to nuzzle up to his humans and rest his head on you. For now, he is on crate rest while he recovers. Every time a human goes near the crate he wags his tail. Asher is able to walk outside for a few minutes at a time. He does well and he is eager to do more. His visible wounds have healed. He is house trained and will let you know if he has to go out. Otherwise he is quiet in his crate. He enjoys some peanut butter in a bone. Long car rides do not suit Asher's stomach. 



Beauty (#180239)

Beauty is a 2-1/2 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 50 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Beauty was brought to the shelter after her foot was caught in a bear trap. She was treated by a vet and her foot has completely healed. Beauty is a sweet but extremely frightened and shy dog. Beauty has shown no signs of aggression but is very shy of humans. She is fantastic with other dogs and MUST GO TO A HOME WITH ANOTHER DOG. Beauty spent time with a local rescuer who has a boarding facility and her own personal dogs. The foster worked with Beauty and said she shows improvement with each day. She really enjoys the company of the foster's dogs. Beauty will eat peanut butter from the foster's hand while crated and the foster can pet her when Beauty walks past.  Beauty is looking for that special family that has a physical fence so she can roam freely and enjoy her new life.

Beauty is unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.

Update from Beauty's foster family - Jun 17, 2018: Beauty is making great progress! She loves being with her canine buddies and follows them everywhere. Humans are still a bit scary but she is becoming more comfortable in their presence. Beauty would love a quiet home with multiple dogs and a quiet fenced yard. 

Update from Beauty's foster family - May 10, 2018: Beauty is most comfortable in her crate and is taking some a medication to help her with her fearfulness. She has a hearty appetite and a particular fondness for cheese! She is a quiet and calm girl. 

Update from Beauty's foster family - May 5, 2018: Beauty has arrived in her foster home, and will need a patient and kind adopter as she is very fearful. She is resting quietly in her crate, and she enjoys meal time and treats. She lives up to her name!

They say best friends bring out the best in each other! That’s the truth for Bentley and Pebbles - a bonded pair of buddies that love to be together.

Betty (#180288)

Betty is a beautiful girl with perky ears and a sunny smile that lights up the room! She likes to play with other dogs and is kind and gentle with children. She arrived a little on the thin side but she’s gaining weight and ready for a new life of treats, snuggles, and doggy play dates. Betty has no cat history and will be approved for kids 10 and up. Betty is a 5 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 49 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.

Betty arrived to Lab Rescue last week, and like all the dogs that arrive to one of our vets, she had a physical exam, complete with all her vaccines and preventatives. All was going well with her exam until they found a mass inside her mouth in her jaw. When she was sedated to be spayed, they took out the mass and sent it out for biopsy. Unfortunately, the results of the biopsy were not the best. Betty has been diagnosed with osteosarcoma, with a guarded prognosis.  We don't know exactly how much time she has left, and we don't care either. We just want that time to be the best time of her life. Right now she is doing great, nothing has metastasized to the lungs, and she has a better prognosis because the tumor was in her mouth and not in one of her limbs.

Update from Betty's foster family - May 15, 2018: Betty continues to enjoy her walks and loves to run around the yard with the young resident dog. When she's not playing outside, she naps next to the senior dog on his big bed. She has discovered toys and likes to play tug-o-war with the younger resident dog. She is sweet with everyone she meets, knows the sit and down commands and lies quietly under her side of the table when the family is eating dinner. She sleeps through the night and has a healthy appetite. Betty is a gem. 

Update from Betty's foster family - May 9, 2018: Betty is of course a sweetheart. The vet mentioned that she could be around 6-12 months, but of course nobody knows. Right now she is having a good time. We have learned so much about her in just a few days. She has an epic lab lean. She loves to snuggle on the couch with you. She will play with the resident dog for hours, at times it seems they're playing in slow motion. She enjoys going for hikes and rides well in the car. She doesn't jump up on you. She is 100% housetrained and crate trained, and will actually go nap in the crate with the door open. She is way too interested in the cat. She also gets along with the resident senior dog and takes treats super gently. If you have any questions about her, feel free to contact me. 

Update from Betty's foster family - May 4, 2018: Betty has arrived in her temporary foster home, and she's making herself comfortable. She has met the younger resident dog and seemed interested in playing with her, but there were so many things to explore that she's saving that for later. So far we know that she knows the "sit" command and loves treats. Betty is considered a hospice case, although we don't know how much time she may have. She is living in the moment, and right now the moment is good, full of treats, AC on this hot day, and many adventures ahead. More on this precious girl as we get to know her. Hoping that some applicant will fall in love with her!

Blair (180396)

Blair is a one year old black, spayed female who weighs 44 pounds but needs to gain 7-8 pounds to be at her best weight. She is approved for ages 10 and up, good with dogs and good with cats, too. She is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Blair must go to a single-family detached home in the suburbs or a rural setting. She does not require a fence. Blair does well in her crate and she is learning leash skills.

Update from Blair's foster family - Jun 16, 2018: Blair is a very sweet girl. Blair is crate trained. (She's in a crate at night at her foster home.) Initially Blair was afraid of a leash. Her foster has been working with her on leash, though, and Blair is a lot better. She is comfortable on the leash now and walks on it. But, she wants to play while she's on leash. So continuing her leash training will be good for her. Blair is great with dogs and cats. (She was previously fostered with both dogs and cats.)



Boomer (#180299)

Boomer is a 3 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 56 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm positive.  Boomer will be treated for Heartworm by Lab Rescue, at no cost to the adopter, at one of our heartworm-approved vets.  Applicants are encouraged to speak with the Heartworm Coordinator to learn more about Boomer’s treatment.  Boomer is a playful fun loving pup. He retrieves like a lab should and has fun doing it. He thinks he is a LapLab and will crawl up into your lap. He is easy going and likes everybody. He thinks going for rides is great. He would like a family that will give him a lot of attention and love.

Boomer is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.

Brody #2 (#180352) and Remington (#180353)

 
 
These two neutered boys are a bonded pair who must be adopted together and are approved for humans ages 6 and up. Brody is a chocolate 8 year old who weighs 75 and Remington, aka Remi, is a black 1.5 year old who weighs 84 pounds. These two guys have been together since Remington was a puppy and they share a proclivity for tail wagging and rolling over for belly rubs. They would love a big yard where they could play, with some type of fence to contain these good boys. They must go to a single-family, detached home in rural or suburban area.  These guys are owner give ups who lived with young children and Brody had run of the house while Remi was crated when alone since he is a youngster. Remi is heartworm positive and Lab Rescue will provide Remington's Heartworm treatment, at no cost to the adopter, at one of our designated vets. Brody is heartworm negative but will need to be tested in six months because we do not have a record of him being on preventives.

Buddy (#180021)

Buddy is a 4 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 72 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Buddy is a big, strong, and gorgeous boy. He will need to go to obedience training to learn basic commands. Until he learns to heel, using an Easy Walk harness will help during his walks. Buddy is friendly and good with other dogs and people. We don't have any cat or kid history, so he's approved for kids 10 and up.

Jan 18, 2018: Buddy has had a chance to run around in a fenced yard and burn his energy. We have learned that he knows how to sit and give paw. He has a nice disposition and wags his tail because he's so happy to see you. He is housetrained and waits to be let out of the kennel to do his business outside. Buddy is strong on the leash. He seems a little interested with the cats at the vet's office, so maybe no cats is a good choice.

Buddy #3 (#180338)

This super friendly and energetic guy is very affectionate and loves people. Buddy is good with small dogs and should go to a home without cats. Buddy tends to pull on leash and walks best with a gentle leader. Buddy is a strong chewer, so he will need durable toys in his new home. He prefers not to be crated and was given free run of the house in his previous home. Like most young labs, Buddy will need formal training. He will flourish under the love and direction of an active family.

Buddy is approved for ages 10 and up.

Cody (#180307)

Cody is a 7 year old, spayed chocolate female who weighs 60 pounds. She must go to a home with another dog and is good with cats. She is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Cody is a former breeder girl who is used to canine company and looking forward to a quiet home in the suburbs or a rural area. This girl is a bit shy and tentative when meeting new people. She will require a physical fence and must have a single-family, detached home in a rural or suburban area. Cody needs another Heartworm test in six months (November 2018) as we don't have proof she has been on heartworm preventatives. 

Update from Cody's foster family - June 10, 2018: Cody continues to be doing well in her foster home. She is enjoying walks in the neighborhood with her foster brother and has recently enjoyed a visit with the canine members of her extended foster family. Cody has been enjoying taking treats from her foster mom. She has such a soft mouth. Watch her here: https://youtu.be/arjYRY2eeB8. Check out those tail wags!! Cody continues to look for a quiet home in a quiet neighborhood. She would do best with another dog who wants to be her buddy. 

Update from Cody's foster family - June 1, 2018: Cody has been working hard at learning how to trust and live in a loving family. Cody has recently discovered that toys can be fun and that peanut kongs are yummy. Cody continues to thrive in the presence of other dogs and relies on them for confidence. Cody needs a caring family in a quiet home. With patience, love and time, this girl will blossom. 

May 25, 2018: Cody has been in her foster home for a little over week. When she first arrived she was very scared and was unsure of what was happening. Since then she has gained more confidence on walks and has been getting more comfortable in the house. It is obvious that her previous living situation wasn't great but this girl is determined to figure out how to live the good life. Cody still finds the world scary at times and needs help to get past her fear. She is learning to trust that hands mean gentle pets and yummy treats and has recently accepted kisses on her head. Cody loves other dogs and has even tried to initiate play with the resident dog. She has been working hard at being brave and has been trying to integrate herself into the family and has learned that sleeping with the family at night is so much better than sleeping alone. She is house trained and crate trained. Cody is looking for a quiet home in a quiet neighborhood. She is more confident when other dogs are around so she will need a home with another dog or two or three. With patience and love this pretty girl is going to learn to trust and will settle into a life full of unconditional love. This princess deserves her fairy tale ending!

Dell (#180356)

Dell is a 2 year old black male who is unknown with cats and good with dogs. He weighs in at 37 pounds, so he is a definite pocket lab! He is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. Dell must go to a single-family, detached home in a rural or suburban area. Dell will need a follow up HW test in 6 mos. (Dec 2018) as we have no prior proof of preventatives.



Digby (#170714) 

Digby is a 1 yr old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 68 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Digby is approved for kids 10 and up. 

Digby is a very, very smart, focused dog. He will do what he thinks is a good idea if not given constructive, positive input. He has progressed very well in a lot of areas (manners) and seems to be familiar with life in a house. We have worked hard with Digby on his "containment phobias" and he is doing well in a crate but would probably thrive the best with someone that is around a lot. He loves to play with other dogs and people. He is good on leash when walking. Digby is the kind of guy that would do great if he had a job, like agility, and may do well with a runner or avid walker, not because he is overly energetic but because he does best if he has a reason and purpose in his life. Digby is not the guy for a first time dog owner but would do great with someone with experience that can guide him give him positive reinforcement.

Update from Digby's Foster Family - Feb 22, 2018: Digby is back through no fault of his own. His adopter had a severe allergic reaction. Digby was not crated with his adopter as they worked from home and we are having to "retrain" Digby on the crate because he is not a huge fan but we will get him back in to the habit. Digby really needs an adopter who can give him focus. Maybe a runner or someone who wants to do agility with him would be awesome! He would also love someone who was home more than not to limit his time in the crate. He is such a super sweet guy and loves other dogs. He will make the right someone very happy! 

Update from Digby's Foster Family - Mar 13, 2018: Digby is making great progress at his foster/trainer. We are working hard on his comfort level in a crate but if he had an adopter that was home a lot he would not need the crate much. He is looking for someone to keep him focused and occupied as he has a busy little mind but if he is exercised and stimulated properly, he can also be a couch potato and just chill with his humans, which he loves. He loves going for walks and playing in the yard with his foster buddies See him play on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBUp75yFv9M

Dylan (#180345)

Dylan is a 7-1/2 yr old chocolate neutered male.  He weighs 79 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Chocolate hunk Dylan is large as life and twice as handsome! This gorgeous guy will dazzle you with his big blocky head, stunning smile, hazel eyes, and a gorgeous milk chocolaty coat. But he’s not just good looking – he has the personality to match. Sweet and playful, Dylan enjoys swimming, fetching sticks and balls, and riding in the car. He has good house manners, knows a few basic commands, and will have an obedience training requirement. This bouncy boy needs a family that will give him plenty of playtime and exercise. He is not your typical 7-8 year old. Doggie daycare, a midday dog walker, or someone who works from home and can exercise him regularly will be best for him.

Dylan is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.




Easton (#180033)

Easton is a 7 yr old chocolate neutered male.  He weighs 69 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.  Easton is a sweet boy. Easton was great with the 5 dogs he was surrendered to the shelter with.  He's looking for a special family to take him in and love him furever.  More to come on Easton as we get to know him.

Update from Easton's foster family - May 25, 2018: EASTON is looking forward to a long weekend. Actually, every day is a holiday to this easy-going character. He has a stick and a shady spot to chew it, so life is pretty good. He hasn't quite figured out why no one has adopted him yet, but he pretty much just goes with the flow and enjoys life so he'll be ready and waiting when his forever humans find him. 

April 17, 2018: Easton has had a great month. His fur is continuing to improve, and he’s reached a healthy weight. In fact, it’s just possible that he might even have a bit of a round tummy now. He’s now only taking melatonin (over the counter) and getting medicated baths twice a week, which he really enjoys. His coat is still a little patchy, and it may always be sparse in some places, but he’s got enough for a decent combover in most spots and it’s still getting better. He absolutely loves playing with his foster sibling, and they can romp and wrestle until they wear each other out. It’s clear he’d be happiest in a home with another dog who really loves to play. His ball skills are improving, too – sometimes he’ll even bring it back now. Easton has shown a very strong interest in deer who frequently visit just outside the fence, so he needs to have a fenced in yard. He enjoys walks and had a blast this past weekend when he went to a pond and watched frogs. So far he needs a harness for walking but that’s because he’s not had any training. He’s a very attentive guy so would probably learn quickly with some consistent training. Easton is a very affectionate boy and loves everyone he meets. He’s fully house-trained and has never needed crating, though he’ll sometimes sleep in the crate if the door is left open. It’s a mystery to me why he hasn’t been snapped up; he’s a complete love and so easy to care for. 

Feb 4, 2018: Easton is an affable and affectionate 7 year old chocolate boy who is enthusiastic about everything. He loves going for walks and just hearing his name prompts some furious tail wagging. He is learning the basics about being a family pet and will need someone who is willing to work with him. He is fully housebroken, though, so has learned the most important lesson. Easton is currently being treated for demodex and ear infection, which will require some medicated baths and ear care in the near term. Fortunately he is good with taking meds. He is somewhat hand shy but is beginning to understand that a hand can bring a lot of good things – treats, pats, the leash – and will now come over and request attention. He has no leash skills so needs someone who has some patience and a strong arm. He’s still in a cone while his stitches from being neutered heal, but that will come off in about a week and then his medicated baths can begin. Easton doesn’t ask for much; he loves having a soft bed to sleep on and will spend most of his day right there. He is good with the other dogs in the home, though they don’t interact much.

Emma (#170313) 

Emma is a 2 1/2 yr old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 50 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Emma is approved for ages 12 and up.  Emma is a very nice dog and with some more training she will be a great one. She will have a training addendum. Will chase a ball and bring it back once in a while. She is a very sweet dog and will make some lucky family a super companion. She is house trained and will go stand by the door to go out. She was allowed on furniture and slept on the couch. She needs to be watched when alone as she still likes to chew on some things mostly paper inside and branches and pieces of wood outside. She is pretty good at un-stuffing stuffed animals. She would love a home with a yard so she can run and stretch her legs while she plays. She needs either a physical or underground fence.

Aug 16, 2017: Emma will need to continue with her training and being a young lab, will need lots of interactive exercise to tire out her mind and body. She does know her basic commands and is house- and crate-trained. She does still find things to chew when bored, so she will need to be watched. She desperately wants to play with other dogs, so she might be a candidate for a couple days of doggie day care each week. We did find out that Lucy does like the water and spent time sitting on the steps of the pool; she wasn't much of a retriever, but she wasn't afforded much, if any, interactive exercise.

Dec 28, 2017: Emma is a bouncy and energetic girl looking for fun. She loves to run around in the yard. She comes running at you but has learned to sit and wait for a treat. She also sits and waits for her food. Her focus is improving but sometimes she can be kind of skittish and loses focus easily. She gives high five and touch. Her recall is coming along. She did not recall at all when she came. She is a smart girl and gets genuinely pleased with herself when she earns a treat.

Emma needs an adopter who will continue to work with her on her cues, someone who will include her in outside activity. She has lots of energy and needs to burn that to be settled. She loves to play fetch with balls or sticks. She does well meeting other dogs. Emma is a beautiful girl who loves affection and will at times demand it if she feels she is not getting enough. Her play is a bit rough which is probably something she has been allowed or encouraged to do and is now in the process of learning appropriate play. She is definitely moving in the right direction. Because of her energy level, she will do best in a family with older children, so she's approved for kids 12 and up.

Foxy (#180328) and Rocky #2 (#180325)

Rocky and Foxy are an adorable pair of affectionate pups who love belly rubs and ear massages and will gladly reciprocate with kisses. They are looking for their forever home since their previous owner passed away. Rocky is the handsome guy with a frosted face and Foxy is the pretty peanut butter and vanilla swirl. Foxy is the more dominant of the two and Rocky is happy to follow her lead. They are excellent in the car and like their dog beds. Both are a little nervous about thunderstorms and loud noises so might do best in a quiet home where they can learn to enjoy the simple pleasures like napping in a dog bed and sunbathing in the yard.

They are good with other dogs, no cat history, but they didn't mind the ones they met at the vet's, so they may be good with cats. They are approved for kids 8 and up.

Rocky is an 8-year-old neutered black male Lab. Foxy is an 11-year-old spayed female Jack Russel Terrier. Foxy is on glucosamine supplements for age-related arthritis.

Update from foster mom - They were excellent in the car -- so much so that the seat towel was undisturbed 45 minutes later when we arrived home. Whenever Foxy looks at Foster Mom, she does the prettiest smile. Rocky is more camera shy. After stopping at the empty dog park to sniff and take care of business, Foxy quickly settled on a dog bed at home while it took Rocky a few minutes of pacing and looking out the window before he settled behind FM's desk chair. If you pet one, the other is always nearby to get his/her share of attention, but neither is pushy about it. They are now relaxing side by side on a dog bed.

Gracie (#180025)

Gracie has been working hard and is ready to find her forever home. She loves to nap and roam around the yard investigating and sniffing everything. She is an incredibly chill girl. She really just does her own thing. She doesn’t bark and is fine in the crate or napping on a dog bed. She doesn’t hear terribly well, so the hardest part about having Gracie in your world is getting her attention with a cookie, or touching her, instead of using your voice. And this girl LOVES her cookies so that’s not hard at all! She meets new dogs with a happy, wagging tail and is great with everyone though will let a youngster know to please not pounce on her. She bounces when she runs, and has a sweet playful streak. She’s practically always happy!

This girl is easy going and meshes perfectly into the household. She bounces when she runs, and has a sweet playful streak. She’s practically always happy! She loves all the stacked "princess" beds at her foster home and will usually pick one of those to cuddle on. 

Update from Gracie's Foster Family - Feb 13, 2018: Gracie's favorite thing to do is eat, and she will wiggle and wag her full body and prance when it’s time for meals. She’s not much for toys but does like a good snuggle, and a nap. She meets new dogs with a happy, wagging tail, and is great with everyone, though will let a youngster know to please not pounce on her. She's house and crate trained, and snoozes on a comfy dog bed in the crate near her canine buds while foster mom is at work. At nighttime, she cuddles on one of the stacked dog beds in foster mom's room. She’s a super sweet girl, full of love, and will make someone very happy. 

Update from Gracie's Foster Family - Mar 15, 2018: Gracie has recovered from her surgeries and is ready to find her forever home.

 Watch Gracie #3 play with Molly #2:

Update from Gracie's foster mom - Jun 3, 2018: We are loving watching this girl bloom. Foster Mom shook up her little world this week by adding another foster dog, AND moving her to a different crate and Gracie took it all in stride. She loved having another dog in her world so for her, the more canines, the merrier. This girl finds her silly when she’s outside, and loves snuggling in bed. In the mornings, she dive bombs foster Mom with kisses and silliness, and loves belly rubs. She hasn’t picked out her favorite toy yet, but appreciates trying all of them out. She also loves peanut butter Kongs. 

May 24, 2018: Gracie is such a sweet little nugget. Every day she settles in a little bit more. Yesterday at lunch, she joined the pack for chicken nugget snack and loved it. She waited patiently for her turn, and would gently take the treat from foster mom's hand. She also is working on being brave and coming in the house when asked (though she still wears a long lead outside in case she hesitates, so foster mom can lead her in). Yesterday at lunch and when foster mom got home from work she came in the house following the resident dogs when asked. She loves to stretch her little body ALL the way out on the couch and take naps. She follows the lead of the resident dogs at playtime, and LOVES to run and romp around the yard chasing after toys and balls. This little peanut is doing so well with the little things, and her foster mom is so proud of how far she's come in only a week! 



Grandma (#180315)

Grandma is a very sweet, calm, loving, gentle girl who loves to be petted. She doesn't show much interest in toys and is not motivated by cookies but loves to be with you and touching you at all times. She is a laid back girl with a gentle soul that rides exceptionally well in the car. Grandma is extremely easy on a leash and knows sit and stay.

Since there's no kid history for Grandma, she's approved for kids ages 10 and up. She was good with the other dogs at the shelter but no cat history. Grandma is an 8 year old old black spayed female. She weighs 47 pounds and should weigh around 60 pounds.

The requirement to treat the dog at Lab Rescue's vet is included in the contracts "Heartworm Treatment Addendum". Adopters are encouraged speak with the Lab Rescue Heartworm Coordinator prior to adoption to learn more about the treatment process.
Update from Grandma's foster family - June 11, 2018: Grandma is such a sweetheart and adores people! Grandma is starting to follow her foster parents around the house. At first, she didn’t like going up or down stairs. But now she will confidently go up and down to follow her foster parents. This week, she was uncrated for 7 hours while foster parents were at work and did great! She isn’t motivated by treats but will perk up at mealtimes. She also likes to be near her foster parents when they are eating. 

May 30, 2018: Grandma is a 8 year old total sweetheart and turning out to be a wonderful house guest! She has no major issues. In her first week in her foster home, it was a bit of adjustment but now she has settled in nicely and gets along great with the resident dogs. She is house and crate trained. Yesterday, her foster parents left Grandma uncrated for a hour and half while they ran errands and when they came back, there was no mess! In the house, she loves to sleep! She loves her favorite spot which is the landing at the bottom of the steps but has started enjoying going in the crate when the door is open and sleeping in there. Grandma loves going outside and taking walks. She does great on a leash as long as she doesn’t catch the smell of a rabbit. When her foster parents are putting on leashes on the resident dogs, she will happily join them at the door. She has gone to the local dog park 3 times and gets along great with other dogs. She tends to mind her business and does her own thing. She likes to socialize with humans. She likes sniffing around the edge of fences hoping to get a sniff of a squirrel.

Hammer (#180359)

Remember Hammer time? Hammer is a 5 year old neutered black male who weighs 50 pounds. He is good with dogs and humans ages 10 and up but is likely to chase cats, so no cats for this boy. Hammer is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Hammer will need another Heartworm test in six months (early December 2018), because we don't know if he was on Heartworm preventatives before coming to Lab Rescue. Hammer lived with another dog in his previous home. He needs to go to a single-family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area but does not require a fenced yard. 




Henry (#170904) and GirlyGirl (#170903)

Henry and GirlyGirl (GG) are hanging out, making their foster laugh and being good while they wait for their furever family. They were part of 5 dogs that were surrendered after their family lost their home. They didn’t come from the best of situations, but they were loved.

Henry and GG love new people to visit and the attention that comes with meeting new folks. Theyare a bonded pair and need to stay together. They are NOT fond of other dogs and should be the only dogs in the house. They are OK to go for walks, the vet etc. They are goofy and silly and fun with each other (they are brother and sister and have been together all their life). They are super good in their crates but would be fine out of them as well.

Henry and GG are good passengers and do okay on a leash, especially once they are comfortable with their person and surroundings. Approved for ages 10 and up. They paid no mind to the cats at the vet so cats may work.
Henry is a 10 year old black male that weighs 45 pounds. GirlyGirl is a 10 year old black female that weighs 43 lbs.

Hercules (#180113)

Herc appears to be a darned near perfect foster- except for his climbing over the 4' chain link fence- but when he did shimmy over, he came straight to the front porch and softly scratched at the door. After successful cat introductions, he slept on a dog bed in his fosters' room with two cats and all had a restful night. He has been fine with the 3 foster dogs and 2 residents he has met.

Herc is great off leash but needs some work on the leash, although he does stop pulling once he has been walking for a while. He is a cuddlebug and is starting to take some interest in toys. He is fantastic in the car as well. Herc is a little worried about trucks: when a delivery came, he went straight for the door to get back inside, so we don't think he would be happy in an urban environment, nor in a busy suburban neighborhood. We have yet to hear him bark, but he will whine softly if he thinks he is being neglected when locked away from his peeps. He needs work on being crated and learning manners when on a leash. He is strong for his size. But his main goal is to please people and is extremely food motivated so training should be easy. He will require a 6 foot fence if relying on a fence to contain him.

Hercules is a 1 year old neutered black male that weighs 54 pounds and can stand to gain a few. He is up to date on vaccines. Nice dog! No surprise he was a favorite at the vet's. Approved for kids 10 and up and good with other dogs and cats.

Hershey (#180343)

Hershey is a 7 year old, neutered chocolate male who weighs 74 pounds. He is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for humans ages 10 and up. He is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Hershey will need a fence and a single-family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area. He knows the commands sit, shake, stay and down. He is a strong boy and walks best with an easy walk harness because he pulls. Leash walking appears to be new to this boy, but he is a quick study. Hershey will need another Heartworm test in six months (November 22, 2018), as we don't know if he was on Heartworm preventatives before he came to Lab Rescue 


 Watch Hershey at play on YouTube.

Update from Hershey's foster family - May 30, 2018: Although Hershey is 7 years old, don't let that frosted muzzle fool you. He plays like a 2 year old. He loves to fetch tennis balls and will have two in his mouth at a time. He will bring the ball back to you and drop it at your feet then sit waiting for you to throw it again. Hershey loves the water. He will drink from the water hose, chase the hose and play in the kiddy pool. Hershey is a fun guy and will provide hours of entertainment. He would love a family who has access to water and many tennis balls.

She does not require a fence but she must go to a single-family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area. Izzy needs another Heartworm test in six months (November 2018) as we don't have proof she has been on heartworm preventatives. 




Jake #3 (#170730)

Jake is a sweet and loving 3 year old black neutered male. He weighs 55 pounds, is good with dogs, unknown with cats and good with humans ages 10 and up. Before he came to rescue, Jake lived through some tough times and is looking for a bright future. He was found as a stray and has permanent scars around his neck that are deep around his throat area. It appears that he was either tied to a very tight chain for a long time, or had a very tight collar on to have made those scars. It's best to walk him on a harness and he can wear a loose collar. Despite the sadness in his past, Jake is putting that chapter behind him and now he finds happingess playing with other dogs and is discovering the world around him.  And despite the cruelty he suffered, this boy holds no grudges and just wants to cuddle, get pets, and snuggle. Jakes has so much love to offer a forever family. He needs a single-family, detached home with a fenced yard, located in the suburbs or a rural area. Like any young guy, he would benefit from some obedience training to be his best self, but he does already know several commands.



Jake (#180358)

Jake is a happy two year old, neutered yellow boy who weighs 57 pounds. He looks like a loveable goofball, because he is one! He is approved for humans 10 and up, good with dogs and unknown with cats. Jake needs a fence and must go to a single-family detached home in the suburbs or a rural area. On walks birds and squirrels can capture his attention for a moment, but he is easily redirected and wants to please you. He is a big puppy in a 2 year old body. Jake can be a little excited when first meeting new dogs and people, so he needs patience with new introductions. He loves his toys. In fact, he prefers toys over treats. Jake is heartworm positive, but current on vaccines. Lab Rescue will provide Jake’s Heartworm treatment, at no cost to the adopter, at one of our designated vets. 



Jasper (#180357)

Who would not love that face and those little ears! Jasper is a 2 year old, neutered black male who weighs 64 pounds. He is current on vaccines, heartworm negative, good with dogs, and unknown with cats. Jasper is approved for humans 10 and up. As you can see from his "profile" picture, Jasper has perfected the head tilt and has very sincere eyes! He probably gets whatever he wants! And this beautiful boy is looking for a forever home where the cuddles and belly rubs are free flowing and in return he promises lots of love and affection. He must go to a rural or suburban single-family, detached home with a fenced yard. 

Update from Jasper's foster family - June 16, 2018 The past six days since I picked up this sweet boy, I've learned: he rides well in the car, loves food and treats, plays nicely with both male and female dogs, loves cuddles and belly rubs and loves EVERYONE! He's quiet in his crate, but is also well behaved in the house when he's not crated. He also let me give him a much needed bath. He was a ham at the vet yesterday when he went for his shot and was rolling around on the floor for everyone to give him belly rubs. It's hard not to love him! Jasper is two years old, and weighs 58 lbs..... look at that head tilt! 

June 8, 2018 Jasper has been in his foster home for one week and has settled in nicely. He gets along great with the resident lab, is crate and house trained and working on basic commands. He likes his toys and will chase them, but will not bring them back. The foster says he's a total ham and likes nothing more than to receive belly rubs. He is very food motivated and wants to please. 



Jenna (#180048)

Wonderful Mamma Dog (Jenna) is patiently waiting in her foster home for her furever family. This affectionate girl wants noting more than a soft bed, belly rubs and maybe to be allowed in your lap from time to time. She is great with other dogs and LOVES the foster's son - she sleeps with him most nights! Mamma is great in the crate, although she does not need it, putting herself to bed at times when she just wants to rest. She loves to go outside and mosey around the yard but is really a couch potato and just wants to hang out with her humans. An easy, perfect addition to any family!

Kodi is friendly and loves to get attention. Kodi is looking for a family with a single-family, detached home in the country or the 'burbs and does not require a fence. He will have a training addendum as he and Hershey never spent much time engaged in their formal education.

Koko (#170329)

Koko is a 7 year old girl, who weighs 40lbs. 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 March 9: Koko had a vacation foster while her foster mom was out of town and did wonderful there. "Koko was a dream to foster, even with the rain and snow! This little 40lb nugget was so chill in a new home and greeted several service men with a bark and tail wag!  Koko takes treats very gently, and loves to snooze in a sunbeam or on the couch if invited. Koko is very smart and loving!"

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.

Leo (#180184)

Leo is the George Clooney of labs- stocky body, large paws and strong otter tail. He is a velcro lab to the extreme and will follow you everywhere. He's working on his leash manners and enjoyed his three mile walk. He has a great sit and even better kisses. He rides well in the car. He prefers his canine pals to on the calmer side so he would not enjoy dog parks or doggie play dates. Leo is incredibly sweet and has no idea that he is a "retriever" of any sort..but he's a good boy.

Leo needs a yard with a physical fence. He will also need to go to obedience training and a family that will exercise him regularly and not leave him crated for a long workday. We don't have any kid history, so he is approved for kids 10 and up. He's a squirrel chaser, so no cats, please.  Leo is a 5 year old black neutered male. He weighs 85 pounds which is a good weight for him and is current on vaccines.

Leo would love to be the center of attention in your home and with his looks and personality, he deserves it!!

Loki and his littermate, Thor, came into Lab Rescue together but they are not bonded. They are inquisitive and very focused if treats are involved. Both boys are getting good training and socialization in their foster homes. Loki needs to go to a single-family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area but does not need a fence.

He is approved for humans 10 and up. He must go to a single-family detached home in the suburbs or a rural area but he does not require a fence. Lucky ended up in rescue because his family lost their home. He looks forward to finding a forever family who will spoil him with love, treats and fun activities.



Luke #3 (#180333)

 
 
Luke is a neutered yellow male who is eight years old and weighs 109 pounds. He's a big guy but the vet says he should lose about five pounds to be at his ideal weight. He is unknown with cats, good with dogs, and approved for humans 10 and up. He's heartworm negative and current on vaccines. He does not require a fence but must go to a detached, single-family home in the suburbs or a rural area. Luke ended up at the shelter when his owner no longer had time for him. 

Update from Luke's foster family - June 4, 2018: Luke is adorably clunky and always wants to be by your side. He will follow you around the house all day looking up at you. If he wanders off he will immediately come back when you call him as he is very attentive and wants to please his people. He LOVES to play fetch and tug of war. He is very good at fetch and even drops the ball for you right away so he can go another round. He is a large dog who enjoys playing but he also loves tummy rubs and naps. He is not the most graceful will some times bump into walls, step on your toes or swing his head around when he is getting a tummy rub but it always adds laughter to the day. Luke is not the most graceful when he takes his treats but he has already started to get better with that as he learns very quickly. He knows a few commands like sit and down and conveniently he is not much of a jumper. He is currently sharing his foster home with two other resident dogs (a german shepherd and a dachshund/beagle) and is doing very well with them both. Luke is easily melding into the foster home routine and will do the same for his new forever family.

An update from Luna/Shiloh in her own words - Jun 8, 2018: Je me presente: Shilo!

My adopter loved me dearly and cared for me very well, but she developed this very bad sickness and had to move somewhere they could help her take care of herself. I have learned to give gentle kisses and I have a very soft mouth for treats. I can wait to go potty up to ten hours; I am crate trained, but there really isn’t any reason to crate me. 

I am great in bed, unless I bring a tennis ball with me, then I keep you up all night stripping off the fuzz. I would be a terrific dock dog if I liked the water because I love to run up and down docks. I love to play fetch with my tennis balls, except I don’t bring them all the way back to you- yet. I am working on a very long leash right trying to earn my fosters’ trust off leash. Cars are cool means of transportation, but if I catch my reflection in the windshield, I just might bark at it. Some days I just feel like barking at stuff, but most days I am very quiet. The fosters are working on increasing my quiet days, but for now they think it would be best if I didn’t go to a home with too many close neighbors.

I am a little pully on leash, especially at first, but once I figure out it isn’t a race, I slow down. My mom used to walk me on her electric scooter so I do know how to be good. I am very good with other dogs and like to play with them, and I submit if they want to be the boss. I am waiting for my cat test at my fosters so will have to let you know how that goes. I haven’t lived full time with children, but I have loved having them visit and I adored the neighbor girls who came to help my mom.

Marshall’s ideal home would be in a house where someone was home a lot and in a home with another dog who likes to play.  He likes to play rough like a typical lab.  He loves to go on walks and is doing ok on the leash. Marshall needs a home with truly experienced dog people who will keep a close eye on him until he becomes familiar with his new surroundings and bonds with his new family. Marshall is good with other dogs and enjoys playing with them. We don't have and cat or kid history, so he is approved for kids 10 and up.

Foster Update: He’s settled in nicely and has been working on his leash skills. Marshall has really come out of his shell. While he was shy in the beginning he’s not anymore. He loves to meet people and is good meeting other dogs. He cries when he sees or hears other dogs when we’re on walks because he wants to play. He has this cute kind of trot when he walks. He loves attention and will follow you from room to room. He is a very smart boy!

Molly #3 is a little shy but once she gets to know you she will not leave your side. Once you take a little time and go slow will get the love back 100 times over.

She rides well in the car and is happy to hang in her crate, even though she doesn’t need to be crated.

Molly needs to go to a family with another confident dog and in a quiet suburban or rural area. She also needs a physical fence.

Piggy (#180369) and Pancake (#180368)

Two times the cuteness and fun. Piggy and Pancake are an adorable bonded pair who must be adopted together; they are inseparable and have been together since they were pups. These precious neutered yellow males are current on vaccines, two years old, good with cats and dogs, and approved for humans ages 10 and up. Pancake weighs in at 47 pounds and is heartworm negative. Piggy weighs 45 pounds and is heartworm positive.  Lab Rescue will provide Piggy's Heartworm treatment, at no cost to the adopter, at one of our designated vets. 

Piggy is more outgoing while Pancake will stay back and wait a bit before joining in.  These guys were given up when their owner could no longer care for them and they look forward to finding a forever home together. Both are a little confused as to why they are in Lab Rescue and where their family is, but they seem to be doing well and are trying to make the best of their circumstances. They are looing for a family that can give them the love they are used to. They require a fence and must go to a single-family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area. These guys are crate trained and know some commands. 

Update from this pair's foster family - Jun 11, 2018: Piggy and Pancake charmed the crowds at the AALD but are still looking for their forever family. These two pocket sized pooches are fun loving, sweet and absolutely adorable. They're ready to provide years of happiness, silly antics, and kisses!  Piggy and Pancake are inseparable. They must have eye contact with each other at all times.

Pokie has no problem getting around, even with his failing eyesight. He loves to play and is OBSESSED with his "babies". He sleeps with them, goes outside to go potty with them and just loves holding them in his mouth. Pokie is such a sweetie! 

 Update from Pokie's foster on Aug 28, 2017: This sweet boy has at least one baby with him at all times (literally at all times).  Pokie has been patiently waiting for his forever family for almost a year.

He weighs 60 pounds and is heartworm positive but current on vaccines. Lab Rescue will provide Poncho's Heartworm treatment at no cost to the adopter at one of our designated vets.

Quincy (#170582)

Quincy is a 9 year old neutered chocolate male who weighs 93 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heartworm negative.  Quincy would prefer not to have any canine or feline companions; and is approved for humans 18 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes and townhouses in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.

 

Quincy is a big boy who will be your chocolate shadow. He knows how to sit and give paw (and high five!) and he loves meal time and cookies. If you have trouble staying on schedule, Quincy will remind you when it's dinner time! He chases cats and wants to be the only dog in the family. He is not comfortable in big crowds and it takes him a bit to warm up to new people. He will be happiest in a home with adults only. Quincy walks beautifully on a leash, and sleeps quietly on his dog bed at night. Quincy does not need to be crated, but since he’s a velcro dog, he’d like someone that is home more than not. His ideal forever family would be in a quiet neighborhood and where he can be the center of someone's world.


Update from Quincy's foster on Nov 7, 2017: Quincy loves his humans and his cookies and is looking for a family where people are home more than not, so he can have company, as well as someone to go on a short walk with him. He loves short walks. When at home, he enjoys playing with stuffed animals, and loves chewing on antlers. He is a great Velcro companion. This is an easy dog who can't understand why he hasn't found his forever family yet. 

Jan 23, 2018: Adoptable Quincy loves the weekend, and loves this beautiful weather we've been having! He loves running around chasing his toys, and then taking a nap (in front of the space heater on the colder days). He would like an adult-only home, with humans that are home more often than not, as he loves his humans. His life wasn't so great before LRCP, so he is slow to trust, but will be a very special companion if you earn that trust.

Raven #2 (#180401)

Raven is a 10 month old, spayed black female who weighs 51 pounds and is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. She is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for humans ages 10 and up. Despite her young age, Raven already knows several commands and is great with recal when she goes off leash. She has lived outside most of her life so she will need patience learning good house manners, but she is such a smart girl, it will not take her long to learn any new rules. Raven is a sweet girl who is good meeting new people. She must go to a single-family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area. She does not require a fence. Raven needs another Heartworm test in six months (December, 2018) as we don't have proof she has been on heartworm preventatives.

Update from Rosie's foster family - Jun 20, 2018: Rosie is definitely enjoying some good R&R at her foster home after many years of being a mommy dog and recently undergoing surgery to be spayed. She loves sitting calmly by anyone’s side and having her head patted. A belly rub is one step better and she will gladly roll over for that! She is an incredibly gentle, sweet, old soul. She walks nicely on the leash and gets along well with her two foster brothers. I think they are competing for who can be the most chill and low key! She is house trained and does not need to be crated. She sleeps through the night on a dog bed. She is a good listener and always comes when called – though she is rarely far from your side anyway. No interest in bones or toys yet but she is still recovering and learning the ropes.

Update from Sunflower's foster family - May 15, 2018: This gorgeous girl is so sweet and a little shy.

Tina #2 (#180245)

Tina is a 2 year old spayed chocolate female who weighs 73 lbs and needs to lose 5.  She is current with her shots and is heart worm negative.  Tina is good with dogs; unknown with cats; and approved for kids 10 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting. She also needs to go to a female only household as we have discovered she is very uncomfortable around men.

 

Tina is a sweet chocolate beauty who is looking to put her breeding days behind her and become a cherished member of the family.  She’s a high energy girl who can take some time to warm up to new people.  Tina has an atrophied right hind leg with a lot of muscle waste. It appears that when the growth plates weren't fully closed, she had some trauma, the kneecap turned, and the tibia started growing in the wrong direction. Fixing this would require delicate surgery with extensive rehab. Because she appears to be shy and easily startled, Lab Rescue is going to re-evaluate her condition once she is more comfortable in an indoor setting. Her condition does not cause her pain; and she has started on glucosamine supplements. 

Update from Tina's foster - Jun 20, 2018: Tina has been spending time in another foster home while her original foster is on vacation. Her favorite toy is a jolly ball. She is real frisky in the morning and likes to play with the ball in the yard. She has discovered water and likes to play in it. During a recent thunderstorm she seemed nervous with the loud thunder. Overall she is doing better, but like in the first foster home, she is very uncomfortable around the husband, so we're going to look for a home with women only so she can continue to blossom. Surgery for her leg will be scheduled in the next couple of weeks. Recovery will take several weeks of leash walks only, as well as rehab exercises that will be done at home.
