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 >

Athena

Gender: 

Female

Age:

1 year

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Beautiful goddess

Athena #2 is 82 lbs of joyful lab energy! She would be a fantastic walking or running companion for an active person. She is very smart and has a playful personality. She loves being around people and likes to sit, lay, or sleep next to someone. She loves playing with other dogs and would do well in a home with another playful dog. She definitely needs daily exercise but is fairly mellow considering her young age. After playtime Athena will nap or just lay in the sun. She is very friendly and wants to meet everyone she sees. Athena will sit nicely for treats and continues to work on basic commands. She learns quickly and enjoys training, especially when her training treats are frequently rotated. Athena is a beautiful, enthusiastic, and social girl.

Beau #2

Gender: 

Male

Age:

8 months

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Playful Beau

Beau #2 has so much love to give and loves his hugs and kisses! He loved going on a walk to the Farmers Market today and loved seeing dogs and people along the way. He gets along great with the resident dogs. He sleeps well on a dog bed next to Foster Mom and Dad's bed. Beau isn't too fond of the crate, but Foster Mom gives him some time out of the crate since he's a good boy. He is a friendly puppy who wants to please you. Beau has just started playing with toys and is figuring out that he is supposed to pick them up. He will require some patience as he is a little hand shy. He's good around other dogs and wants to play. He has some sun bleaching, as he was probably outside a lot in his former life. He will be a dark chocolate when his new coat comes in. He is a young Lab looking for an active family with a yard who will give him some training, exercise and lots of love.

Bizzy

Gender: 

Female

Age:

10 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Beautiful Bizzy

Bizzy is a calm, affectionate yellow girl who really loves attention and going for walks. She has good house manners and is happy to meet new people. Most of all she likes getting a belly rub; she’ll run ahead of you so she can flop at your feet and present her tummy for attention. She recently had the chance to meet and spend time with two other Labs and it did not take long for her to join them in racing around the yard. Bizzy is happy to lie quietly while you are working but will bring the ball to you for the occasional recreation break, and remind you with a quiet nudge of your elbow that she is still there. I suspect that she would enjoy a home with at least a moderate level of activity. She will sit on command and has a very delicate mouth when taking treats. Beautful Bizzy is waiting by the phone!

Blackie

Needs:

A loving forever home

Sweet older fella

Handsome Blackie lost his home when his owner went into hospice care. We're sure this has been a very confusing time for this distinguished gentleman, but he has taken it all in stride! He is quite a sweet older fellow with plenty of love left to share with you. He is good with dogs, but unknown with cats. If you'd like to give this young-at-heart guy a loving home and a soft bed, please contact your Adoption Coordinator today.

Bobo

Gender: 

Male

Age:

7 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with an underground or physical fence

We're bananas for Bobo!

Bobo is a friendly dog who is easy going and doesn't think running around like crazy is necessary any more. He loves leash walks and having the freedom to roam around a fenced yard. He will retrieve treats (of course he will!) and will even bat them around like a cat before pouncing on them. He is not interested in toys, despite them being offerred to him. He is a little overweight due to lack of exercise as he has been in the shelter for the last 6 months on a legal hold, not due to anything he did but what his old owner did. His Foster Mom thinks that a few of those pounds were fur! After a few rakeovers with the Furminator, this boy proudly displays his beautiful butterscotch coat. He quickly settled into his foster home and seems endlessly content to be in a home with the noises and smells and activities of a family. His foster home has an in-ground pool that he likes to walk around, stalking the Polaris monster, but has not yet shown an interest in jumping in. He has happily ventured into streams and creeks, however. This gentle, very tall, and stunning boy is looking for a home where someone is there more often than not. He is a real lovebug and is starting to show his sense of humor.

Bolt

Gender: 

Male

Age:

3 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence

Adorable little ball of energy!

Bolt is a happy little ball of energy whom you can’t help but fall in love with the minute you meet! He has officially landed in his foster home and is reported to be a sweet, very energetic pup who loves to play with the resident dog. He still has some puppy in him and can be mouthy at times. Otherwise, he's been really good and adjusting well to the rest of the foster family. He has been on a few walks to the dog park. The first time, he was kept on leash to gauge his behavior with other dogs. For the most part, he's good with the other dogs. The second time, Foster Dad allowed him off leash and he was fine. He definitely needs the easy walk harness as he likes to pull and try to guide the way. He loves to get attention, and gives as good as he gets. When you meet Bolt you can expect him to walk up to you with his tail wagging and put his head in your lap to get petted. If you do, he will give kisses and show you his Lab-lean, then slide down and roll over so you can rub his belly. He likes to play with toys and retrieves them nicely. This wonderful, goofy boy is ready to bolt over to your house and be your best friend forever!

Brandy #2

Needs:

A loving forever home with another dog and a physical fence

Sweet, young girl in need of tender love and understanding

Sweet, young Brandy is a beautiful, shy girl, who is getting used to the good life. We are happy to report that this girl is making good progress in her foster home! She is able to walk around the block and loves her walks! She is a good eater and is making progress in house breaking. Brandy seems to warm up faster to male dogs than female dogs, but still doing fine with the resident female dogs. She will also gain confidence from living with a canine sibling. She is very sweet and warming up to people.  As she continues to receive the love, attention and tender care she deserves, we will surely see her blossom even more into the wonderful, loving sweetheart we know she is. Will you be the one to give this girl the life she deserves?

Chloe

Gender: 

Female

Age:

7 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Gentle beauty

Chloe takes cute to a whole new level! This black beauty has hazel eyes, a happy smile, and expressive ears that always perk up when people come to pet her. Chloe is friendly and affectionate and loves to have fun. Sadly, her owner hasn’t had much time for her lately, so she’s been spending most of her days home alone. Chloe minds her manners in the house and is always polite when greeting new guests. She enjoys going for walks and likes to retrieve balls in the backyard. Chloe can’t wait to find a family who will appreciate her silly, snuggly, playful personality

Chloe #2

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Princess Chloe!

This little princess is Chloe #2! She had a tough life until a Good Samaritan brought her to the shelter; and in true Cinderella fashion, she came to us. Now she just needs her Family Charming to come and sweep her off her feet! Chloe is a typical 2-year-old Lab; however, she hasn't had much experience with indoor living or leash walking yet. She wants to be her very best, so she's hoping for a patient, loving family to give her attention and polish her skills. Wouldn't you like to make this sweet princess part of your kingdom?

Clyde #3

Gender: 

Male

Age:

3 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home

Exercise buddy is waiting for your call!

Clyde #3 is a charming chocolate boy with a shiny coat, long silky ears, and gorgeous gray-blue eyes. He has plenty of energy for playtime, walks, and hikes and prefers to have people petting him when he’s not busy with other activities. This big bubba needs to lose some weight and would love to join a family that can help him reach that goal--green beans and a low fat, low calorie diet and gradually increasing exercise will do the trick. This friendly fella will fit in with any family looking for a fun-loving friend. Slow, short walks a couple times a day with increasing distance is a good way for humans to lose weight too, so maybe you can form a team! He is loving his walks in his foster home and has discovered that some toys squeak--how fun!

Cooper #2

Male

Age:

8 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home

Frosty-faced sweetie!

Cooper is a loving, affectionate boy whose favorite activity is spending time with his humans. A perfect day for Cooper would be a couple of walks and a few rounds of fetch followed by an afternoon of snoozing and snuggling with his people. This friendly fella has grown up with kids and dogs and is happy to spend time with both. He is housetrained and crate trained and mostly stays out of mischief. He is a sensitive soul who can get anxious around loud noises or when he senses his people are leaving. Cooper would like to find a family where people are home more than not so he can finally get the love, attention, and exercise he has been missing.

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

Sweetie Pie!

Elvira has lots of love to give! She loves to go on walks, snuggles and is an all around goof ball. She does well in the crate and enjoys being with people. She likes to play and has good energy for it, but she also can settle down well in her crate if her Foster parents need to leave the house. She enjoyed a walk to get coffee with Foster Mom this weekend, too, and did great! Snuggled with Foster Mom while they sat and enjoyed the outside.
