AVAILABLE LABS

Important Notes:

  • Finding Your Perfect Match: Below are brief descriptions of some of our dogs that are available for adoption. Because the list is constantly changing, we recommend that you apply to adopt as soon as you are ready and work with an Adoption Coordinator, who can provide you with more info about dogs that are a good match for you and your lifestyle.  
     

  • Adopting with Children: The safety of children in an adoptive home is one of our greatest priorities. Learn more about our approach to placing dogs in homes where little ones are present.
     

  • Adopting as a Townhome or Apartment Resident: As many of our dogs come from rural areas—where they have limited exposure to cars, new people and dogs, unexpected noises, and being leashed—we may limit placements for some dogs to single-family homes. Learn more > 
     

  • Adopting & Fences: We require fences for some of our dogs for a range of reasons. Learn more >
     

  • Heartworm: About ten percent of our dogs are diagnosed with Heartworm disease during their initial vetting. Heartworm is treatable, and Lab Rescue provides treatment for all infected dogs at no cost to the adopter. Learn more >

Friendly happy boy, and oh, those ears!

Biscuit

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence and another dog

Hiking buddy ready to go!

Biscuit is a handsome fellow full of puppy energy. He is looking for a family with a resident dog who is equally active and playful so they can burn off their energy together. Walks are not enough for this guy. Biscuit needs several hours a day of hard play with another dog, as well as activities inside with his humans. He is very smart and likes puzzle toys and other enrichment games. After he has gotten some exercise, he loves to settle down and cuddle with his people. He was recently introduced to trail hiking and enjoyed all the new smells in the air and textures beneath his paws. He was very interested in dragging tree branches as far as he could. Biscuit even found a path covered in ice and proceeded to slide down the ice on his belly with his tail wagging the whole time.

Ellie

Gender: 

Female

Age:

2 years

Good with:

Kids 15+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence and a female adult household

Special sweetie searching for a special home

If we said Ellie was beautiful that would be an understatement! She is stunning, sweet, affectionate and likes to play with toys. Ellie generally wants to be with Foster Mom, although she’s not as much of a “Velcro dog” as some other fosters – sometimes she’s content staying in her open crate as Foster Mom moves throughout the house. Though recently, she has taken to napping at her foster mom's feet when she's on the couch or at the dining table, and grows more affectionate by the day! She's always ready for a belly rub. This girl loves tennis balls and swimming, long hugs, and climbing into your lap. Her fur feels like velvet. She is a smart and a willing partner in training; she genuinely enjoys training sessions and picks things up quickly. She's learned a fair few commands: "sit", "down", "go to your house" [crate], "get behind" (not as good as heel, but helpful), and "get your toy". Her house manners are quite good on the whole! She is housebroken, she has only jumped on the couch a couple of times when she has heard something outside, she doesn’t counter-surf, and she doesn’t beg for human food. She cried and barked some the first couple of nights in her crate, but since then she has been completely silent from the time she goes to bed at night until she is let out in the morning. Ellie has grabbed Foster Mom's shoes a few times, apparently mistaking them for toys, so Foster Mom minimizes opportunities by keeping them out of her reach. She has only jumped up on Foster Mom when we’re getting ready to go for a walk and she can’t contain her excitement. She's also good in the car! Ellie has been loving the winter weather, racing in circles around the backyard and eating snow. She loves to get brushed and toweled off after a walk in the rain. Ellie could benefit from leash training and possibly an easy-walk harness. Ellie’s only drawback is not her making — she is not comfortable around most men most likely due to a very negative experience with a man in the past. So, we are recommending her for a female household with no children. With training and love she might change her mind, but for now this sweetie is looking for a special chance to be a part of a special family. Ellie will fill your life with love and joy if you let her!

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Gentle and loving little lady!

Floppy is a friendly little lady with beautiful brown eyes and a patch of powdered sugar on her chest. She has been busy showering her puppies with love and attention, and now she is ready to find a family who can give the same to her. She is sweet and silly and loves to snuggle.

Harley and Max#2

Gender: 

Male/Male Bonded Pair

Age:

4 years/4 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence

Double Perfection!

Harley (blue collar) and Max #2 (green collar) have been together since they werre puppies. They were well cared for and trained by their previous owner, but sadly they could no longer afford to care for them properly. These sweet boys are very easy-going and well-behaved. They so love to run and chase each other in the yard and are both very fast! Harley, with the gray muzzle, is a really busy boy, always keeping up with what's going on and playing games. Max is more laid back and sometimes wishes Harley would just sit still so he could nap in the sun. Max is very touchy-feely and both are always up for petting, especially ear scratches and belly rubs. These friendly fellows love meeting new people and dogs. They often cuddle together and dream of a home with a big fenced yard where they can run, retrieve and play. Whoever adopts these inseparable boys will be getting super pups!

Hudson

Gender: 

Male

Age:

5 years

Good with:

Dogs, Kids 13+, No Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home

In search of adventure!

Hudson is a skinny, fun lab who loves exploring! He's an active guy with good energy. This comical, goofy guy is a bundle of fun who loves his car rides (especially in a convertible), swimming, camping, hiking, even kayaking! He would rather go on an adventure than play with toys, although he does enjoy a good round of fetch with a ball or rope. He would prefer to be an only dog so he doesn't have to share his people's attention. Though not a dog park kind of guy, he does well at doggie day care, as the play is structured and supervised. When Hudson is done with his day, his favorite thing to do is snuggle with his humans. This energetic boy loves to learn and be busy, so an active adopter would be best for him as he requires a minimum of 60+ minutes of vigorous walks, jogs, retrieving, or dog-dog play everyday. You can stay in shape with him! He's also making progress new commands and now knows "sit," "paw," and "shake." Hudson's a good pup looking forward to finding his forever home!

JaJa is the happiest pup!

JaJa, formerly Willy, is a funny boy who is always happy! He is blind in one eye, but that does not slow him down. He's a lovable guy who adores having his ears rubbed. His favorite thing when he meets you is to come up and put his head in your lap so you can pet him. JaJa's second favorite is to be around other pups! He met a cat outside but seemed unimpressed. This fun-loving guy likes to play with toys and carry them around with him. He would love to find a home with a family that can give him the affection, care and exercise he needs. He loves attention and would love to be your new snuggle bug, couch warmer, bed heater-upper... You get the picture!

Midnight

A loving forever home with a physical fence, no efence, and another dog

Marvelous Midnight

Midnight is blossoming as she becomes more comfortable in her foster home! After a few quiet days with her fosters, she is coming out of her shell and having fun. With some patience, anyone can be her friend, and the patience is worth it! She would not give kisses when she arrived, but now happily absorbs affection and shares kisses. She is getting braver each and every day! Midnight is looking forward to a family with another dog to romp around a fenced yard with, and of course plenty of exercise, attention, and love.

Lovely girl

If the eyes could tell a story, Nancy's would read that she has a heart of gold and is a good soul. She has only been with us a short time and as we get to know her, we will update her personality.

Ollie

Good with:

Kids 17+, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Snugglebug alert!

Snugglebug alert!! Who likes to nose boop? Ollie has a spot marked for just that! Ollie is a nice compact lab who is laid back and loves to snuggle. He was a top student during his training and knows all of his commands. He is cool with the resident cat, and has great house manners. He loves attention and is always available for the snuggle time. Ollie likes car rides and will jump right in when you say "load up." One thing Ollie isn't fond of loud noises. You know ... like that evil vacuum. On his own, he will go into his crate for some den space if the sounds bother him. He just chills there until it's clear. He wants to be the only dog in the house, because who would want to share you? Right?! If you're in need of some snuggle time, Ollie is the pup for you!

Be My Valentine

Handsome Papa is looking for a place to land! This very affectionate senior is looking for someone to shower with love during his Golden Years. He's a soft-spoken, soulful-eyed, slow-paced gentleman with a beautiful coat and big paws. While Papa doesn't see or hear quite as well as he used to, he still is a puppy at heart! This quiet, very reserved, older, slow moving gent was hopping, barking, and wild tail wagging when he saw the neighbor throwing a frisbee with his dog! Papa is very friendly and enjoys being close to his people. Since his vision and hearing aren't as great as they once were, he would do best in a home with an older or calmer canine sibling he can take cues from. He would also love a home with minimal stairs so he can stay as close to his people as possible. He'd also love a family that is home more often than not. Papa is a lovely older gentleman ready to find his forever people!

Best Buddies

There is nothing better than adopting two dogs who have always had each other because they settle right in, giving each other confidence. Tae is the cute beagle and Peanut is the Lab.

These fellows are extremely well behaved and know basic commands. They are loving and laid back and could be Plug and Play in your household. Call your Adoption Coordinator to visit with these guys. They will win you over.
