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 >

Alveena

Gender: 

Female

Age:

1 year 6 months

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence

Sweet and petite!

Alveena is a very happy pup who thinks everyone she meets is her friend and wants to play with her. She is 40 pounds and likes to climb up and sit in your lap and get attention. She loves to play and will chase after a toy and then stash it in a safe place for later. Alveena likes to play in the water and is good with other dogs. She needs a family that will give her plenty of exercise as she still has plenty of puppy left in her. Some family is going to luck out when they bring her home.

A loving forever home with a physical fence and no stairs

Gentle Soul

This handsome soul is Bay. He comes to us after being left alone at his owner's home when his owner was taken to the hospital and later passed. We're not sure of Bay's exact age, but he appears to be an elderly gentleman and is extremely loving and friendly. He had surgery to have a tumor removed; and although the results of the biopsy were not what we were hoping for, his fosters are happy to love on this sweet soul. Before his surgery, Bay found comfort in his foster sister. After the surgery, he feels better and loves to explore the house and the yard, sometimes happily trotting around the yard. He likes to hang out with the two resident dogs and his foster humans. Bottom line, Bay just wants a family to love him and keep him company. If you would like to provide this loving gentleman with a soft place to lay his head and shower him with the love and attention he deserves, please call your Adoption Coordinator today.

Baylor

Gender: 

Male

Age:

1 year

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Riding Solo

Baylor is a very good boy with lots of love to give. He loves people. He is described as the sweetest boy in doggie day care/training. Baylor has to be the solo dog in the home and should not be at a doggie park - ever. Baylor has worked on his skills and he is now able to walk past other dogs but, should do just that - keep walking. He's a typical young boy who will need plenty of walks and playtime to spend that energy. Baylor loves his humans and is happiest if he can climb on your lap for attention and a nap! He is great in the car, but has been known to try and ride shot-gun if not secured. He's very gentle with his treats, and gives kissess freely. He knows how to sit and will wait until released for his meals. He's much better on the leash and will get even better as time goes on. He does like rope and stuffed toys, but is not very interested in playing fetch. This sweet guy is housetrained and will now let you know he needs to go out. He's demonstrated good manners in the house, not getting into anything he's not supposed to, even when Foster dad has been out of eyesight! This guy will make an active family very happy!

Buck #5

Gender: 

Male

Age:

2 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Friendly fellow!

Buck is a friendly fellow who lovess to be with you. He entertains himself well and doesn’t need constant attention, although he loves to hang out and be petted. He likes to play with the toys in the toy bin and drag them around the house. He’s also content as long as he’s with his people. This social butterfly gets along well with everyone he meets (adults, dogs, kids.) He needs lots of exercise to work out his 2-year-old Lab energy and likes to keep the yard squirrel-free. He has excellent house manners, sleeps in his crate, and likes to go for rides, settleing down nicely to watch the cars go by. Buck was on his own for a while before he was picked up as a stray and needs to put on some weight. That shouldn't be too hard, as he loves treats, especially cheese! He dreams of an active family that has a yard for him to play in and will give him the love, attention and exercise he needs. He will make someone a wonderful companion!

Buddy #3

Gender: 

Male

Age:

3 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Energetic Spirit

Buddy continues to excel in his foster home, and showcase a variety of skills that make him a wonderful dog. He has settled into an urban environment without any issues around traffic or outside noise. He is OUTSTANDING walking on a leash, and could probably be trained to heal without a leash in less than a month. He gets along with most dogs and most people. He's fully house trained and does not require a crate. And he is working on recall, to add to his list of commands he already understands. There is very little Buddy can't handle about his environment. Whoever welcomes this guy into their family will be very lucky!

Chance

Gender: 

Male

Age:

4 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence

Take a chance (on Chance)!

Chance has had a big week as he learned to "sit" on command! He is also working on "down", "stay", "come", and "heel" and doing remarkably well. He does great with the teenage boy who is helping to train him, too! He continues to sleep well through the night outside of the crate and loves to be around his people. After dinner, he loves to fall asleep right up against Foster Mom or Dad's feet/legs while they sit and watch TV. Since Chance was hit by a car before coming to Lab Rescue, he does have some fear with moving cars and likes to bark at them when he's out on walks (and a speed boat for that matter). He prefers having his people home more than not and occupying him vs. working from home (he likes to try and play with Foster Mom when needs to work on her computer.) He is so darn sweet and lovable and will make someone very happy!

Chanel

Gender: 

Female

Age:

3 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home and must go to a home with another dog

Black Beauty

CHANEL is a gorgeous girl with expressive ears and bashful brown eyes that reveal some sadness in her past. She has had a bumpy start to life and deserves a forever home to show her what that can be like. When you meet Chanel, you can see that she is trying her best to be brave, but it takes lots of courage for her to come and say hello. We don't know exactly what happened to this girl before she got to Lab Rescue, but her fosters are working hard on helping her understand the world isn't as scary, and that she's safe. Her fosters are seeing more of her personality as the days go by! She loves to lay outside and is pretty good about coming in when you call her. She has reacted well to visitors in the house, especially those with treats. We are hopeful that she will continue to gain confidence with changes to her environment and meeting new people. Adopters should expect a pup who will need lots of patience and investment. This Black Beauty deserves her happy ending too! Chanel will need to go to a home with another dog and has no experience with cats.

Chessie

Gender: 

Male

Age:

6 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Country Boy

Chessie is a friendly, country boy who enjoys his morning and evening walks and playtime in between. He likes a game of tug-of-war with his wubba or a stick, but his favorite toy is the frisbee. He carries it around wherever he goes; it doesn’t leave his side unless he is dropping it at your feet and encouraging you to throw it. Chessie enjoys attention and affection, but isn’t clingy. He likes to explore the backyard and hang out on the porch. You might hear his bark in the car or at mealtimes when he is happy and excited, but he doesn’t bark at passing cars, other dogs, or the doorbell. When someone is at the door, he just stands there wagging his tail looking very cute. Although Chessie is 6, he has medium energy and no problem keeping up with the 3-year-old resident dog. After playing outside or going for a walk, he will take a nap, and then be ready for his next adventure. He does fine both in the crate and when left alone in the house. He gets excited at meal time and when he hears the door bell and tends to bark but quiets down pretty quickly. Chessie will do best in less urban and congested areas. He has no problem negotiating stairs and is townhome approved. He has good manners, only picking up things that are his. Chessie is a wonderful dog!

Clyde #2

Gender: 

Male

Age:

3 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Curious Clyde

Clyde did not have a great start to life. He is learning that humans can be nice. Clyde has come a long way in his training. He tends to still over react a bit when being corrected as we believe he may have been abused but, he is doing much better. Clyde will need an experienced owner who provides structure, exercise and proper discipline when needed. Clyde does not need his human to feel bad for him, he needs his human to show him the ropes. Clyde is energetic, and loves to romp and sniff out in the yard, but is also able to settle and rest in the house. He likes scent work (he figured out where the food and treats are right away), so that’s a great way to keep him occupied. He’s definitely food-motivated, which will be a great help with training. He knows many commands, but is adjusting to hearing them from people other than his previous owners.

Teddy Bear!

If you're looking for a big hunk of chocolate, Dave is your dog. This gentle giant found himself at a rural shelter and came to Lab Rescue to find a forever family. He did great meeting other dogs at the shelter. His transporter said that he rode quietly and has a great disposition. He sounds like the perfect boy, doesn't he? We will report more about Dave as we get to know him better.

Dolly #2

Female

Age:

8 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home, must go to a home with another dog

Easy going Dolly #2

Dolly is doing great in her foster home. She likes to follow Foster Mom around the house and enjoys sleeping in the dog beds with the resident dogs. She has good house manners, walks easily on a leash, enjoys chewing on her nylabone, and does great going up and down the hardwood floor steps inside. Dolly gets excited to go out on a walk and likes to patrol the house, alerting Foster Mom and Dad when someone knocks on the door or is outside near the house. She rides great in the car, takes treats gently, goes to the bathroom on leash, and is working on "sit." It is taking Dolly longer to warm up to men (Foster Dad) than Foster Mom, but when Foster Mom is not home, Dolly does receive pets from Foster Dad and allows him to put on her harness to go on walks. She also met a 13 yr old boy who she loved and allowed him to pet her without hesitation from the start.

A loving forever home

Enzo is your friend for life!

Enzo is a very happy pup and is your friend from the minute you meet him. He meets new people and other dogs with his tail wagging. He is starting to play with toys. He likes car rides, walks and easy playing in the yard. He would love to find a home where he can have a yard to play in and lots of family time for some pets and love. Enzo is going to have an Cranial Cruciate Ligament Repair (TPLO) operation on his left knee which will be scheduled at one of our vets. The operation and rehabilitation will be paid for by Lab Rescue. Until he has his operation he can go for walks, play in the yard and climb stairs just no hard playing.

Faith and Hope

Gender: 

Female/Female Bonded Pair

Age:

Both 2 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Social butterflies when together!

Faith and Hope are truly happy dogs with sweet dispositions. They are loving life in their foster home and get along well with the resident dogs. The girls wait for their meals in a sustained sit, take treats in a sit position, and almost potty at the same time. Faith, the slightly larger of the two, is the leader of the pack of 4 dogs in the house. She will pick up slippers or socks and take them to her bed where she doesn't chew them, but lays her head on them like a pillow. She is always seeking out a sunny spot in the house. She is fast and tries to be the first one out the door to search for squirrels. Hope is a happy pocket Lab. She is a snuggler, and hops up ever so lightly into your lap with any chance she can. Hope is a bit more wary of new folks, and takes her cues from the other dogs. Both girls are friendly and generally quiet. Faith only barks at squirrels and when an unknown person comes into the house, but settles easily. They have learned "sit" and "stay" and have almost mastered the leashes on walks. The one word they really seem to know is "cookies." They are highly food-motivated and Foster Mom feeds them separately. They are easy to train, ride well in the car, and are champion nappers. Faith and Hope are easy dogs who like to check in with one another, but are also comfortable doing their own thing. They make quite the fun pair!


Faith & Hope are BFFs! https://youtu.be/0W7Ojipl6Bs
