Boo (#170798) & Roxy (#170797) 

Boo and Roxy are 4 yr old black neutered females.  They weigh 71 and 77 lbs respectively.  They're up to date on vaccines and are heartworm negative.  Boo and Roxy are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.  They are unknown with cats and are approved for ages 10 and up. 

Jan 9, 2018: Roxy and Boo were adopted to an older gentleman who realized he wanted to return to work for the camaraderie, and couldn't give a dog, much less two, what they need in a home. He said they are everything they were said to be, and so much more! They are easy to walk together on leash, they ride beautifully in the car, they are very low maintenance and extremely affectionate. While they are well behaved in a crate, they generally haven't been crated for more than an hour a day and that is just because they don't quite yet have the lay of the land; they are always crated together. They have free run of the common areas and do well. Boo is a bit more willing to pose for pictures than is Roxy. They are precious together, only occasionally getting snippy over a squeaky toy. We did learn that the girls prefer to avoid the vacuum cleaner and that they are cautious if they hear gunfire, but they don't get frantic, just a bit uneasy. They like to share a friendly "hello" with other dogs on their walks, which they get three times a day and which seems to meet their exercise needs.

Dixie Rose is a black spayed female and Oskana Marie is a yellow spayed  female.  They are both 9 months old.  They weigh 57 and 68 respectively, are up to date on vaccinations and are heartworm negative.  Oskana Marie & Dixie Rose are great dogs, they are friendly and very lovable. They like to be with you to get petted, if they had their way they would be Laplabs but are too big. They love to play and rough house with each other. Oskana seems to be the leader and the first to explore, Dixie follows along. Both like to retrieve but Oskana normally brings it back Dixie beats her out once in a while. They like being inside but love to go out and explore the yard to play. They would like a to have a family that is active and can give them love, attention, and exercise so they will thrive. Oskana Marie & Dixie Rose are siblings and are bonded together they do not like to separate from each other and therefore must be adopted together.

Update from foster: Feb 4, 2018: This incredibly sweet and very bonded pair of Oskana and Dixie have adjusted nicely to their foster home. They love the two resident labs, big baskets of toys, soft dog beds and running in the yard. There are always lots of kids in the house so they are enjoying special attention. They are typical high energy for their age - especially Dixie. Oksy settles down nicely with the older dogs. Both do well in their crates. Both have already learned to sit for their treats. They prefer free running in the fenced yard to walking on a leash. They are completely attached to each other – run in tandem, lay with and on each other, wrestle with each other very gently, share toys back and forth. Dixie is a jumper – can easily get right up to your mouth to give kisses. She is also the more mischievous one and is very playful. She LOVES squeaky toys… actually all toys. Oksy has very nice manners – very low key and settles easily. They will be great for a family who wants two loving, gentle, happy, playful dogs. 

They are good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.

Chevy (#170840) 

Chevy is a 7 month old black spayed female.  She weighs 52 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but no cats for Chevy.  She is approved for ages 10 and up.   Chevy is a happy puppy who rode well in the car. She doesn't quite have the concept of personal space down yet and definitely needs a beginning course on leash skills. She is incredibly food motivated so should be easy to train but will need someone committed to training and exercise. She doesn't seem to mind the crate, and loves all toys, balls and bones. No cats for her, and no birds too, please.

Chevy is in a foster home to settle in and the foster reports that she is a very sweet, very energetic girl. She needs lots of retrieving time and wants to play tons. She is very toy and treat motivated. She knows lots of commands like sit, paw, lay down. She loves to play ball and will bring it back to you to keep throwing. She loves her walks and loves the dog park as well. She definitely needs a fenced area to get her zoomies out. She wants to be with you all the time. She is working on remembering her manners when she meets new people. Chevy loves toys and needs strong ones as she will de-stuff the stuffed ones. 

Feb 2, 2018: Chevy had a great week. She is learning part 2 of crate training. She knows "crate" and runs in. She stays in the crate happily while someone is in the room. The door was left open and she came out twice last night, but I told her crate and she slept in the crate until 4:00am! Chevy is much better walking on a loose leash. She knows sit, paw, down, and is learning stay. She has had no accidents. Plastic bags and food wrappers should be kept out of reach and she likes to shred them.

Feb 6, 2018: Chevy is doing really well! Chevy knows how to run into the crate. She's still working on being happy there when left alone, but she's making progress. Chevy has learned to walk on a loose leash and is good at walking next to you when she can't be on a longer leash. Chevy loves frozen almond butter in Kong's and nylabones. She loves to have some time to run in the fenced yard each day, but she's good with long walks on rainy days when the dog park is too muddy. She will need human(s) who are committed to giving her the exercise she needs.

Feb 7, 2018: Buck moved to his foster home last night. He rode in the car very well. He is a very sweet, kissy-kissy boy, but can also be very head strong, like a bull in a china shop when he sets his mind to something. He’s very strong and will need to be walked on a no pull harness. Regardless of being overweight, he keeps up with the running and rough-housing with the resident German Shepherd. He will need a family that is committed to training and regular exercise.

Feb 6, 2018: Buck is a gorgeous boy. He is an absolute love bug and is very generous with giving kisses. Buck is looking for an active family who is willing to give him the exercise and training that any young lab needs. With a face like that, you will want to spend as much time as possible with him!

Bud (#180053) 

Hi, my name is Bud. I am an 18 month old but my foster mom says that she can't believe it because I'm so calm. I LOVE to snuggle! If you have a lap i'll be in it, if you have a face i'm going to kiss it. My foster mom thinks that I wasn't brought around much in my life because I'm nervous and aware of everything but once i get used to it I warm up quickly. She had to teach me how to go up and down stairs and has been working with me to build my confidence in the car. I get along great with my foster pup sisters and got to meet their cat cousin. I was very fascinated with the cat and when he walked away I wanted to play but when he sat and did nothing even though i was sniffing him he got boring and i moved on the other more exciting things. Foster mom thinks i will do great with cats but maybe a slow introduction at first, for the cat's sake. Did I mention I love snuggles. The more love you give me the happier I am and the more i'll snuggle you in return.

Benjamin (#170767) 

Benjamin is a 10 month old black neutered male.  He weighs 67 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with cats and must go to a home with another dog.  Benjamin is approved for ages 9 and up.  Benjamin and June came to us as a bonded pair, but once they were adopted, it became clear that unlike married couples who squabble on occasion, they had some definite irreconcilable differences.

Benjamin is crate trained and is quiet all night. He has responded to some basic direction, as ‘sit’ ‘down’ (occasionally) and waits to be told to follow you on the stairs. He does need a yard since he is not comfortable taking care of business on the leash yet, possibly because leash walking is novel and there are so many things to check out.

Benjamin is learning how cool it is to hang out with people and is learning to enjoy being scratched and hugged. As with most year old labs and wannabe labs, Benjamin does need basic manners training as he has not yet learned to not jump up on people when excited. Benjamin will chase balls and other toys when thrown but he doesn’t have the retrieving part down yet. He also needs good chewing toys since he is still figuring out what he is allowed to chew and what is forbidden fruit, but when he is corrected and redirected, he will stop. Benjamin would probably do best in a training class, rather than private lessons, so that he can become more comfortable with other dogs and people. Benjamin would benefit from more exercise than the two walks daily that he received. It is much easier to get and keep a dog’s attention once they unwind from rigorous interactive play.

Jan 31, 2108: Benjamin is doing great. He goes to doggie day care every day and gets along great with the other pups. Benjamin is a high energy dog who would love a good challenge and someone to drain his energy both mentally and physically. He loves to be around his people. He knows basic commands and is eager to please.

Diamond (#170842) & Chyna (#170843) 


Watch Diamond and Chyna on   

Diamond and Chyna are a bonded pair of siblings and must be adopted together. Diamond is a 7 month old black spayed female and Chyna is a 7 month old yellow spayed female.  Diamond weighs 28 lbs and Chyna weighs 29 lbs. They are both up to date on vaccinations and are heartworm negative.  They are good with dogs but unknown with cats, and are approved for ages 10 and up.  Diamond & Chyna both love to play and get attention. Both like to get petted and will end up on their backs so they can get their bellies rubbed. Diamond is the more outgoing and Chyna is more affectionate. Both like to chase after toys and bring them back to you sometimes. They like stuffed toys, kongs and nylabones. The stuffed toys may become the victim of a tug of war and become unstuffed. They were not allowed to have any table food but were given pieces of apple and bananas. They would like a family that has a fenced yard and will give them the love, training and exercise they need.

Update from foster, Dec 23, 2017: These sweet sisters make themselves more comfortable with each day as they caught Star Wars fever while getting ready for the holidays. While still cautious, Chyna showed great courage this week as she began to hop in and out of the car on her own and was perfectly behaved while inside the bank and Petsmart. Diamond meanwhile greets everyone she meets, loves to play (especially keep-away or anything that inspires a chase), and explores the world with her mouth. As a result, her training on how to “come” when called is being reinforced though this smart girl quickly learned not to get too close lest Foster Mom steal her latest treasure. These young chewers are tough on toys as they exercise their pearly white teeth, and their newest favorite toy, both indoors and out, is a glow-ball which they love trading back and forth. Their forever home would be one where they have toys with which to play, furniture on which to nap, humans into whom they can melt during snuggles, a yard in which to run, someone to take them for walks, and an endless supply of love.

Jan 27, 2018: These cuties are settling into their new foster home with lots of toys and belly rubs. Very sweet girls, Diamond wants to jump up to give kisses and Chyna snuggles in by our side. They are getting used to walks in the neighborhood. Crate trained and house trained. They love playing in the yard with each other and 2 older resident dogs. The girls are very soft and snuggly!

Feb 2, 2018: These 9 month old pretty girls have been through quite a few changes and are looking forward to finding their true forever home! They get along well with each other and the resident dogs and are great with our kids (ages 10-15). They are are the softest dogs and love to cuddle and snuggle with their humans and each other! They have lots of doggie energy but after a good romp are ready to settle down and will probably roll over for some belly rubs and lots of kisses. They are house and crate-trained and are doing well on walks in the neighborhood. They love to be outside and are excited about everything they see! Who's ready to add a pair of lovely girls into their home and make them forever yours!

She’s a perfect passenger and has the most adorable wonky ear and toothy grin, plus a couple of white toes which I love!

Ami was a breeder dog but hasn't had puppies for at least five years. We don't know how Ami is with cats. There's no kid history for Ami, so she's approved for kids ages 10 and up. She is looking for a home where she can enjoy being a dog and spend time with her family.

Ami is an 8 year old chocolate spayed 67 pound female. She is up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm negative.

Updated from foster, Dec 23, 2017: Ami is looking for a home with a fenced yard and with a family that understands that she is still learning about inside living. She gets very excited when people come to the door but does not jump. She just wags her tail in delight. She's a quiet girl but her fosters have a feeling that once she is safe and comfortable she will be super happy.
Dec 26, 2017: Ami has been doing great - playing, eating, drinking and being social. She has been doing fine with having free range of the kitchen and living room when no one is home. She looks out the window when her fosters leave and meets them at the door when they come back . Ami needs to work on gaining confidence while on walks and is comfortable in the fenced yard. She has not paid any attention to the resident hamster. She is friendly and loves to be petted and will wiggle in delight. She loves treats! She has been on her best behavior and does not jump up on people or counters and hasn't tried the furniture yet. Ami prefers to be in the company of another dog and is looking for a home with another dog to keep her company and show her the ropes.

Jan 19, 2018: Ami is a sweet chocolate/silver 8 year old. After about a month with her foster family, she has really come out of her shell. She is shy at first but warms up quickly.

Von (#170847) 

Von is a 2 year old neutered yellow male who weighs 61 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heart worm negative.  Von is good with dogs; unknown with cats; and approved for kids 10 and up.  Placement is currently to single family homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.  Townhouses will be considered if adequate exercise can be provided.  No electronic fences.

 

Von is a young, energetic guy who absolutely loves to play.  Because he can be a little rough when he plays, his canine companions should be on the younger side; as he can be a bit much for older dogs.  If he is the only dog in the house, he is much calmer.  Von is very loving and enjoys sitting on the couch and getting belly rubs.  He is crate trained and should be easy to train as he is very food motivated.  Von can be a bit mouthy and that is something his foster family is working with him on correcting.

Dan (#180009) 

Dan is a 1 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 50 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is approved for ages 10 and up.  Dan was a stray to the shelter, picked up for harassing livestock. Dan is very sweet and playful. He is still very much a puppy. Dan loves belly rubs and sleeps all night in the crate. He enjoys snuggling on the couch with his humans. Dan is good with other dogs. Due to his history, NO cats or chickens for Dan, and best to have a physical fence so he's not tempted to give chase.

Jan 16, 2018: I got to spend time with Dan today, and he is the sweetest and friendliest boy. He met me with a wagging tail and lots of kisses. He walked pretty well on the leash, but he will benefit from obedience training and regular exercise. This boy can't wait to get out of the kennel and meet his new family. Is that you?

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.

Sunny has a disposition to match her name.  She is super sweet and well mannered.  This gorgeous girl is also house trained and knows basic commands.  Sunny is looking for a family to blissfully spend her golden years with and in return she will give tons of love andaffection.  Her ideal home would have limited stairs.  

Jan 23, 2018: Sunny is such a sweet girl. She is an easy dog and would do better in a situation with few stairs, but she can manage them. She doesn't need to be crated and likes to be with one of the humans and even tackles a full flight of stairs to follow them. She has excellent house manners and doesn't get into any trouble at all. She's so quiet, her foster parents haven't heard a single bark yet. She's also very mellow and might do well with cats.

Jan 17, 2018: Sunny did well with visiting grandchildren this weekend- no toy chewing etc but she was most willing to taste anything they would give her. She loves her short (slow) walks and wags her tail at the neighbor dog through the fence. She would love to be someone's couch potato this winter. No help needed to get on the couch. 

Jan 6, 2018: Sunny just like her name has a bright and sweet disposition! She loves belly rubs and going for daily walks with her family. She is super sweet and well-mannered. She is house trained.

Blitzen (#170871) 

Blitzen is a 5 month old black male.  He weighs 43 lbs and is up to date on vaccinations.  He is good with cats and must go home with another dog.  Blitzen is approved for ages 6 and up. 

Update from Blitzen's foster onJan 4, 2017: Blitzen is so sweet and has the best personality. He acts as a normal 5 month old pup though uncoordinated. He likes to play with other dogs and loves to get attention. He is with a foster who reports he gets along with everyone he has met. He has 3 dogs and two cats who he plays with. One of the dogs is handicapped and cannot walk. Blitzen is her friend and plays with her and sleeps by her. He is the typical young pup who loves to play hard and fast then fall asleep so he can start again. He runs hard out in the yard and his lack of coordination sometimes causes him to bump into things when he can't stop fast enough. He would love a home with a yard where he can run and play without wandering off. He needs to be with another dog to give him company and to help him figure out new things when he is trying to focus.

Blitzen's Medical Condition: Blitzen's owner noticed that he was uncoordinated and when he ran he would sometimes stumble. When he came to Lab Rescue our vets found no evidence of a physical problem causing his lack of coordination.  So we had him evaluated by a neurologist.  Blitzen was found to have a hypermetric gait, (uncoordinated and over extended) and titubation (head shakes) which would suggest a brain related problem. This is likely related to a disease where the electrical impulses in his brain are lost between nerves and can cause involuntary movement. The neurologist said that Blitzen could be with us anywhere from a few months to 14 years. He said most dogs with this condition do not get worse and live a normal life, though they are clumsy and uncoordinated. Ideally, Blitzen should have his exercise monitored to make sure he didn't get hurt but he can expected to live a normal happy life. For more information on Blitzen's medical condition contact your Adoption Coordinator!

Eli is an 8 year old chocolate 55 pound neutered male. He is up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm negative.

Dec 26, 2017: Eli is a sweet boy who is doing well and enjoys hanging out with the senior pups at his foster home. He loves lounging on the couch, and learning what the good life really is. He is sweet and happy, and loves being with humans and getting attention. He does well in the crate for short periods of time, but would prefer humans home to hang out with him, or a canine companion to chill with. He seems interested in the cats, so probably no cats, or dog savvy cats only. He likes to watch the world out the window. He sleeps through the night quietly on the couch and is very velcro. He's a complete love and has won his foster mom's heart.
Jan 5, 2018: Eli is a happy, bouncy, playful older gentleman. He loves tennis balls or any kind of ball; hey are his favorite over plushy toys or bones. He continues to get more and more comfortable at the house. He curls up on the couch with his foster brothers and is perfectly content. He still prefers human company but can be left alone as long as he has a K9 friend or two with him so it seems he would prefer to go to a home with another dog. Occasionally he lets it be known that he needs a little space, but overall, he is good with all other dogs.
He knows "sit" and "come" and, although strong, is not the worst on a leash. He has a hearty appetite, like most Labs. In an attempt to teach him how to take treats gently, we have created a peanut butter monster! He can sometimes get a little excited and mouthy around treats so could use a little more time to work on that. Though he does not particularly like the crate, he has been crated but he does better gated off. He will sleep through the night without accident or incident.

This five year old boy is a love bug and is also pretty hilarious. He is crate trained, housebroken, enjoys his canine foster sibling and loves toys! He is so chill, and enjoys laying around the house and getting snuggles. When it is time for a walk he is great on a lead or a harness and does pretty well on walks. He loves to look out the window and lay around and nap most of the day. He can do short staircases, but does not yet wish to attempt a longer staircase.

While Wendy was at the vet's office for her exam, it was discovered that she has a luxating patella on her right rear knee.

He is fit and excited to begin the next stage of his life adventure. He's still chewing and is quite adept at clearing out the sink and counter surfing. While not sought after habits they do encourage one to not let things pile up in the kitchen. No one is perfect.
