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.

She runs, and jumps and plays like a typical 6 month old puppy but her front legs look different and I thought her legs were messed up. Her legs are perfectly normal for a lab puppy that has some Bassett in her. In fact you can pay big bucks for them if they are called Bassadors but we are just calling her Angel. She thinks she should be a LapLab and will crawl in your lap if you sit on the ground next to her. She hasn't started to play with toys yet, she will go over to look but is not interested in playing with it. She's good around other dogs and wants to play, play, play. If you are looking for a buddy who is active and friendly then Angel is the pup for you. She would like an active family that has a yard for her to play in.

Bob (#170018)

Bob is a 4 yr old neutered black male.  He weighs 55 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations.  He was heartworm positive and now has completed his treatment and is beginning his post treatment rest period.  Bob is easy going dog that loves to be with you.  So far he hasn't been interested in playing with toys or retrieving but that will come with time now that he is with Lab Rescue.  Bob is very interested in food but he is very polite about it: he doesn't guard his food, doesn't beg and didn't countersurf at their home.  He doesn't like any fruits or vegetables- raw or cooked- and will spit them out.  He was not always gentle when taking treats, so his owners need to figure out which way works best and be consistent.  He is a quiet dog and rarely barks inside, but may whine if there is something he wants.   Bob loves his walks- almost as much as food. He will bark at other dogs- but not in an aggressive way- and after he does bark, he has a little swagger in his step.  He does have a penchant for dirty socks, so he is a constant reminder to pick up after yourself. He isn't destructive but may stop and taste something that looks interesting, so he does need toys and needs to be taught which things do belong to him.  He is a delightful dog, full of personality who loves to be with you.  He would love a family that has a house with a yard they can play with her in and give him the love and attention he deserves.

Update from Bob's Foster Family - Apr 24, 2017: Bob is a very sweet, quiet boy. He loves looking out the windows and watching the world go by. He loves playing outside in the yard and really enjoys spending time frolicking in the grass. Bob enjoys playing with toys and chewing on Nylabones and especially like walks! Bob is very interested in food but he is very polite about it: he doesn't beg or countersurf. H e is a quiet dog and rarely barks inside, but may whine if there is something he wants. Bob loves his walks and he will say hello "woof" when he sees other dogs. He does have a penchant for dirty socks, so pick up after yourself. He enjoys toys and may check out your things, too. 

Update from Bob's Foster Family - May 27, 2017: Bob is very calm and quiet in the house. He will occasionally bark to let you know something is happening outside. He knows the commands sit, down, and shake a paw. He is so eager to go outside he dances at the door when you are hooking up his leash. He is good on leash except when he sees a little critter! Then he bounces and pulls with excitement! Bob is very snuggly at bedtime and sleeps soundly through the night until you wake up. He will hang out with you when you are home and come over to get some petting when you call him. Bob can be shy when you first meet him but he is quite affectionate once he gets to know you.

Buddy has been treated for heartworm and is now in his post treatment rest period.  Buddy is good with dogs but not cats.  He is approved for ages 10 and up.  Buddy has had a rough start but things are going to be a lot better for him now.  Since he came into Lab Rescue he has made a lot of friends.   The kennel staff have given him a lot of attention and love.  He has learned to relax around new people and is good around other dogs.  He is still a little slow to share toys with other dogs if he gets one he does want to give it up but will if you trade him for another one.  Buddy needs a home that has a fenced yard so he can play and run around without wandering off.  He will make some lucky family a wonderful companion.

Update from Buddy's Foster Family - Feb 27, 2017: Buddy is really blossoming. He has started playing with the resident lab. He loves his toys and chasing a tennis ball. Buddy loves to cuddle, sleep with you and isn't an early riser. You would never know he is a tripod the way he runs around the house and the backyard. He is a great car rider and is well behaved in pet friendly stores. 

Update from Buddy's Foster Family - Feb 20, 2017: Buddy is a stunning 2 year old black lab. He had his left, front leg amputated on January 17, but don't tell Buddy that. He can do anything a four legged lab can do. He loves to play with a tennis ball by himself, batting it around the house and chasing it. Buddy doesn't have any problems with hardwood floors. He can jump up on sofas and beds. He loves to sleep with you.

He just went to another foster (without cats) today 

Kids 10 and up as we have no history. Good with other dogs. No cats he will chase them and more. Knows sit, and come. Okay on lead. Crate trained and is about 95% house trained, waits to go outside to go.

She doesn't think running around like crazy is necessary any more, thinks taking a nice walk with his buddy is the way to go. She hasn't been getting the exercise she needed, this couples with an undiagnosed Thyroid condition caused her to gain weight. Now that she is on Thyroid meds, getting exercise and on a diet she should lose weight. She is good in the house, does like to stake out the couch for naps, she slept on a dog bed. She loves to go swimming which should help in his exercise program as it burns calories without putting a strain on his legs. Likes to go for rides.

He is somewhat shy really frightened by loud noises.  He has a gorgeous shiny coat and an adorable face  and BIG feet!  He is good in his crate and has not had any accidents at the foster so far. Costa walks well on leash when walked with another dog, but needs a little more work when walking on his own. 




Daisy #3 (#160289) 

Daisy is an 11 year old spayed yellow female who is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. This sweet senior who used to do field trials in her younger days is in need of some TLC after a rough few years. She is good with dogs but would prefer to be a solo dog or with another very submissive dog. She is good with cats and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. Daisy weighs 54 pounds. Since coming to Lab Rescue she has perked up considerably thanks to good nutrition and finally getting the veterinary care she needed. She should not be crated, must go to a home with a fenced in yard (no invisible fences) and have people who are not gone for long periods, because this girl loves company. 

 Watch silly Daisy with her new food-dispensing ball. 

Update from Daisy's Foster Family - May 24, 2017: Daisy has her moments where she will pick up the ball and all she wants to do is play fetch. She will pick it up and drop it at your feet. She sleeps on her dog bed in her foster's bedroom. She listens very well and stays until she gets released. Sometimes she likes to snuggle with her foster dad on the couch. She likes to follow her humans around to see what they're doing. She would be a great gardening partner for someone looking for a companion. This gal is a sweetheart. She would love to find her forever family. 
 
Update from Daisy's foster family - March 22, 2017:

Daisy is such a doll! She has settled in nicely to her foster home and is loving playing ball in the yard. She's a wonderful house guest and doesn't ask for much - just a bit of fetch and some love.

Dixie #3 (#170292)

Dixie is a 12 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 74 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs and cats and is approved for ages 7 and up.  Dixie is a gentle and sweet girl whose life has been turned upside down by the death of her owner. She really craves attention and reassurance, but her confidence is beginning to return and she is starting to show a little interest in exploring on her own when outside. Her hind legs are a little wobbly; she can't handle slippery floors, so area runners are needed in those areas. She is excellent on a leash and immediately responds if called, though she's rarely more than a few feet away. Dixie doesn't pay any attention at all to the resident dogs; people are what matter to her. Ideal situation for her would be a calm environment and a person/people with lots of time to lavish attention on her, few stairs and no slippery floors. She doesn't want or need a lot of exercise, so a small yard or even no yard but a few short walks daily would be OK for her, skipping dog parks which may be too much action for her.




Dottie (#170303)


Dottie is a 10 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 91 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs andcats and must go to a home with another dog.  Dottie is approved for ages 10 and up.  Dottie has been wonderful. She is a sweetheart. Dottie has been left out in the house while we were at work and didn't pull a thing out of place. She was friendly when the dog walker stopped in to let her out and was a perfect guest visiting foster grandparents this weekend. She is pretty good on leash, despite her size. She doesn't pull and seems to enjoy walks. She chased a bunny in the yard and was eyeing up some squirrels and would have chased them if she was off leash. Dottie gets along fine with the resident dog and cat. She snoozes a lot, generally on the dog bed or floor, but she has scrambled onto the couch twice. Dottie does fine in the car, no trouble or reluctance to travel. Also was a trooper when we took her to the dog salon for a bath, a little reluctant to walk up the ramp but once in the tub, she was resigned to the bath and very cooperative. Dottie is just such a sweetheart, she is super friendly, calm demeanor, and very easy going. Loves to get scratches, especially on her belly!
Update from Dottie's Foster Family - May 11, 2017: Dottie is a friendly, outgoing, and happy-go-lucky girl. She used to live in a home with other dogs, so she needs to be adopted with another dog. She is housetrained and is used to roam around in a yard. Dottie is good with cats. We don't have any kid history, so she's approved for kids 10 and up.

Update from Dottie's Foster Family - May 20, 2017: Dottie has added groundhogs to the animals she wants to keep your yard clear of. She came across a snake in the yard and was curious and sniffed it byt didn't feel obligated to confront it. . She's an adventurous gal! Dottie is looking forward to a weekend full of outside lounging (she lays in the grass when not sprinting after critters) and lots of belly rubs. 






Duke #2 (#170146)

Duke is a 1 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 61 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Duke is approved for ages 6 and up.  Duke is delightful, full of personality, he loves to be with you and to get petted. He likes to play with kids and is active but not hyper. He is just learning to retrieve, chases the ball and brings it back once in a while. He is good with his toys and has stuffed animal that have survived for months which is unusual for a pup his age. He knows sit, come and sometimes down.  He pulls some on lead.  Duke would like to have a family that will give him love, attention and training.
Apr 19, 2017: Duke is a typical young lab who can get mouthy when excited; he just needs someone to be firm, yet patient, with him and use sound training techniques with him. He is a character and it's fun to watch him blossom.

Duke would like to have a family that will give him love, attention and training. He needs a fence either physical or underground fence.
Jun 16, 2017: Duke is a typical young lab who can get mouthy when excited. He needs an adopter experienced with young sporting dogs who will be firm, yet patient, with him and give training a high priority. He is one handsome dog. He will have a training addendum because he is an exuberant boy- delightful, but exuberant. Young energetic dogs must have training and adequate exercise; Duke settles right down after he has had adequate interactive exercise. Several walks a day will not be sufficient for a young lab. Young dogs are going to push the limit until boundaries are set; training also provides focus and patience.

Duke #4 (#170388)

Duke is a 10 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 69 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Duke is approved for ages 8 and up.  Duke is a good looking dog and is very active for his age. He likes to be with people, to get petted and makes everyone he meets is his friend.
From his owner: Duke will play ball and return it to you sometimes. He loves to swim in the ocean, and has done so many times going out quite a distance with the boys. He had free roam of house for up to 8 hours a day. Make sure always that food is out of his way as he will eat whatever is out on the counters. He will sleep just outside of the boys' doors, will also sleep on the sofa, or in the beds with anyone of them.
He is a great dog who is looking forward to meeting his new family who has fenced yard so he can wander around and check for critters who shouldn't be there. 




Floyd (#160344) and Harvey (#160345)

Floyd and Harvey are a bonded pair and will be adopted together. Floyd is a 6 year old neutered male mixed breed who weighs 51 pounds and Harvey is a 7 year old neutered black male lab who weighs 58 pounds. Both are current on vaccines and heartworm negative. These two will need a yard with a physical, not invisible, fence. Floyd is a bit shy with people initially but he warms up quickly. He is good on leash, walking right beside his human and knows numerous commands. Harvey knows lots of commands, too, but because he is a social butterfly eager to meet and greet, he will need an easy walk harness for walks. Harvey loves to retrieve. Both are good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up. Both of the guys are fully trustworthy around the house and do not need to be crated. They are well-behaved, sweet dogs who can't wait to find their forever home. 

Update from Floyd & Harvey's foster family :  The boys have been enjoying themselves with toys or laying out in the sun. They are so easy--and eager--to please! These boys demand so little, and are ready for their forever family!

Helen (#160335)

Helen is a 6 year old spayed chocolate female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  She is approved for kids aged 10 and up and should go to a home without cats.  She weighs 60 lbs Her blindness is caused by diabetes which is now under control; she will need to be on insulin injections and blood glucose monitoring for the rest of her life. In mid- June, Lab Rescue will have surgery performed that will, we hope, restore the sight in one of her eyes.  Helen is learning to love toys and is getting healthier every day.  She's  bundle of love and energy and we can't wait to see what happens once her sight is restored.

Update from Helen's Foster Family - Apr 26, 2017: Helen is a six year old lovable chocolate girl! She has blossomed into a snuggle bug who is the envy of the neighborhood on leash and who loves to retrieve. She rides great in the car and thinks squeaky balls are the best. Helen prefers to be the center of attention, so she would like to be a solo dog. She loves to be with her people, inside and out, so she doesn’t need a fence and has no issues with stairs. Helen not only likes to be with her humans, but needs someone with a short workday or one who doesn’t work outside the home, since she needs two insulin shots a day on a regular schedule. She is perfect for her shots and is a very well-regulated diabetic. House Manners? Absolutely! You don’t need to worry about food disappearing off the counter, or leaving your shoes on the floor or holes in the back yard. She's a very well behaved girl!

Kevin (#170241)

Kevin is 4 year old black male, who weighs 46 lbs. He's up to date on his vaccines, and is heartworm positive.  Kevin will be treated at one of Lab Rescue's approved vets. Kevin will need a home with a physical fence. He's approved for kids 10 and up, good with other dogs, and unknown with cats. He does ok on a leash, and in his crate, and loves car rides.  He has an exuberant personality, and loves running and playing with people and other dogs.  He enjoys toys but still isn't sure what to do with them, so he will need a family who can help him learn how to be part of family, and channel his labby energy.  He is still learning commands, and his ideal family will have the time and experience to help him come into his own.






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.
Update from foster on Jun 6, 2017: 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! 

Update from foster on May 25, 2017: Koko is an affectionate, loving lab who is on the hunt for her forever family. She loves the beach and swimming. She also likes to run and go for hikes and loves to play tug of war. She does pull on the leash but an easy walk harness works great. She knows basic commands, sit, down, stay, play dead and target. She is used to being the only dog in the home, so may do best either as a solo dog or with a calm, laid back companion.






McGregor (#170097)

McGregor is a 1 year old red fox male.  He weighs about 50 lbs, and is up to date on his vaccines.  McGregor has been treated for heartworm and is now in his post-treatment rest period.  He's house and crate trained, with lovely manners. McGregor will do best in an adult only household, and must go to a home where there are other dogs. He's unknown with cats. This adorable little guy needs a patient family who can help him blossom, and other dogs to help show him the ropes.  

Update from McGregor's foster on May 18, 2017: McGregor has arrived at at his fosters home and is settling in nicely and learning the ritual of the house. When McGregor first arrived, he was very shy and didn't want to interact with anyone. He quickly over came his shyness with the pack and engaged in play on day 2. Learning to trust the humans took a little longer but, by day four he let me pet him and now it is a daily occurrence. His favorite spot is behind the ears. 
McGregor will warm up to you- on his own time. Humans just need to let him be for a bit so that he figures out that you are okay. He is excellent in the crate and goes right in. He currently spends the night on a dog bed in his foster Mama's room and is very happy there. He hasn't learned about toys yet but, he does show interested in a ball when thrown and I think it is just a matter of time before he learns how to play fetch. 
McGregor loves to be outside. He is learning however, that the inside might be a little better and comes in for a treat or two. Speaking of treats, he takes them oh so gently. He is 100% potty trained. He is pretty calm for a one year old and is perfectly behaved in the house despite his age. I can't forget to mention his good looks as well. He is simply adorable.

Update from Mike's foster family - June 24, 2017:

Mike is adjusting well to life in a foster home. He enjoys the comings and goings and is always on hand to meet and greet anyone who walks in the door. He is a small guy who is good on leash and really enjoys sniffing his way along wherever he goes. At 52 pounds he looks like a pup, but behaves like a big boy. He has free run of the house when his foster family is away and does not chew inappropriately or have accidents. Mostly, Mike likes to be with his people and get some loving.  He gets along very well with the two resident labs even though he does not join in when they bark at people walking by or up to the house. This boy is a perfect little pet who is ready to meet his forever family.



Misty #3 (#170295)

Misty is a 5 year old black female who is up to date on her vaccines, and is heartworm negative.  Misty is approved for kids 10 and up, must go to a home with another dog, and is unknown with cats. Placements are currently limited to single family homes with a physical fence. She weighs 80 lbs but needs to lose a few to get back to her ideal weight. Misty is house trained, and doesn't need a crate.  She is a shy girl and will need to go to a home with a canine companion and where her new family encourages her to come out of her shell. 

Update from Misty's foster on June 19, 2017: The Misty that is currently at my house is a different one than the shy, scared girl that arrived a few days ago. She spent the first few days hanging out in the foyer, joining us in the living room when encouraged. Now her favorite spot is curled up on the couch either with her canine buds or just having a good nap. She conquered the stairs, and now races up and down them with the rest of the pack when it's time for bed, or time to come down for breakfast. She snoozes quietly through the night on the floor of foster mom's room. She's a happy, tail-wagging girl who loves turkey and belly rubs. Misty is still a bit unsure of herself outside, but will now come out on her own when the rest of the pack are out there to take care of business and check in with foster mom for some chin scratches. Noises outside are scary (lawn mowers, tractors) but she'll just head to the door and wait patiently for you to let her in so she can go to a safe place. Misty is the biggest sweetie and she will easily worm herself into your heart. 
 
Update from Misty's foster on May 26, 2017: Misty is adjusting to her foster home and working on getting more comfortable with visitors. She loves the couch, waits her turn for chicken chewy treats, which she takes gently, and enjoys the fenced yard, though she sticks close to the humans. She has a bladder of steel, is fine at night sleeping on her bed in foster parent's bedroom. No crate required for this timid, sweet girl. When she turns on the smooches she is such a charmer.



Molly #2 (#170250)

She is heartworm negative, and weighs 71 lbs.  Molly is approved for kids 10 and up, is good with cats, and she must go to home with another dog. Placements are currently limited to single family homes with a physical fence.  Molly is a beautiful and soulful girl that is waiting for her perfect family to show her the love and attention she deserves. Molly was used on a breeding farm but is now on the hunt for better days. She will need some patience and love as she adjusts to the new phase of her life.  She has learned the happiness that comes from snuggling on the couch with her humans and destuffing toys. 
Update from Molly's foster on Jun 6, 2017: Molly continues to be charming. She definitely loves her people. She will thrive in a family where she won't be left alone for long periods of time. Up to 4-5 hours in one day. She cannot be crated. She likes to hang out with the other dogs on the couch or a dog bed. Molly is the perfect combination of spurts of energy and couch potato. She is done with all her medicines and is waiting patiently for someone to adopt her. She is a strong chewer and loves antlers, nylabones, and frozen marrow bones. She also loves to destuff soft toys and is the happiest girl when she can do that. Don't miss out on this gentle beauty.

Update from Molly's foster on May 27, 2017: Molly is the sweetest girl you will ever meet. She is settling in nicely to her foster home and loves the three resident dogs. Molly is very easy going during the day - loves to follow her foster mom around, plays with her three foster brothers and toys, enjoys being in the yard to run and sniff, and taking peaceful naps in between all the other activities. At night, she sleeps soundly on her own dog bed and doesn't get up until the morning. She is good on her leash and likes to take a few short walks to help her lose a few pounds.

He has since come out of shell and has come to enjoy the attention of humans, and other dogs no longer scare him. He does great in a crate and he has done well with his house training. Petey is a sweet boy who just wants love and attention after an early life of neglect. He has put on some much needed weight and is really learning how to be a great dog. 

Update from Petey's foster on May 24, 2017: He is great in his crate and has good house manners. He was a bit thin and has put on around 10 lbs and filled out nicely. We are still working on his "gator mouth" when treats are involved. He would LOVE a quiet, settled, home where he can learn the routine and not have a lot of comings and goings constantly. He has acclimated well to "home living," but he does better with low amounts of chaos. He is very loyal and once he trusts and loves you, is forever by your side. We know the PERFECT home for Petey is out there! He is good with dogs but also great on his own.

They have been living with relatives since his untimely death and adjusting pretty well. They are used to playing together in a fenced yard, but they are good on walks. Shiloh does pull some, as he is curious about everything, especially other dogs. He knows, and follows, basic commands. Shiloh and Mandy have lived together for nearly 3 ½ years and do everything together, but they are also great with other family members’ dogs: large and small. Shiloh is extremely affectionate and attentive to his people; he is a pretty submissive boy, too. He has no bad habits, but does love his bones to satisfy his chewing. Shiloh does whine a little bit at first when he is left behind, but shakes it off fairly quickly.  Mandy has no bad habits but has always had bones to chew on. She is a very loving dog who appreciates a kind word and touch.

Tyson is a big lapdog and loves attention from his humans.  He likes other dogs but is perfectly fine as a solo dog as well.  Tyson has good energy but not crazy energy.  He loves to retrieve, swim and go on walks.  Tyson has impeccable house manners and does not need to be crated.  He sleeps quietly through the night and lets you wake up on your own time.  Tyson takes treats very gently. 



Uno #2 (#170363)

 

Uno is a 3 year old neutered black male who weighs 44 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heartworm negative.  Uno 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.  

 

Uno is a curious, shy little guy.  He is looking a family that will be patient with him and provide quiet reassurance to build his confidence.  More on Uno as we get to know him better.

Update from Uno's foster on June 17, 2017: Uno had a first great day at foster's home. He whined a bit when it was time to go to bed, but slept quietly in the crate all night. This morning he was ready to go. He enjoyed a long walk and did well on the leash. He seemed a bit concerned by two cars going by, but he is not bothered by loud noises in the house--blender, washing machine, and neighbor's wood chipper. He waits to be outside to do his business. He loves to play with foster sister, but he is still under restrictions from his neuter, so he can't wait to get the green light. Foster hasn't had this much fun in a long time. This little guy is a small package full of life and sweetness, but he also likes to take a nap on the couch or on your lap.
