AVAILABLE LABS

We are Temporarily Not Accepting Adoption Applications

Due to the impact of COVID-19, we have seen a surge in adoption applications and a disproportionate number of dogs who need to be rescued. To responsibly manage this imbalance, we are temporarily not accepting new adoption applications. If you would like to be contacted when we are accepting applications, please register for notifications.

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 >

 

Able

Gender: 

Male

Age:

2 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence

Shy guy

Able is a young pup who is a little shy when he first meets you. Once he knows you he will try to get into your lap and get petted. He hasn’t started to play with toys but we can fix that. He takes treats very gently. Able just arrived at Lab Rescue and more information will follow after we get to know more about him.

Andy

Gender: 

Male

Age:

8 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Amazing Andy!

Andy is a sweet boy with a thick, shiny coat and a constantly wagging tail. He's super friendly and loves to give kisses! He is great at car rides and enjoys them too. He is also very good at walk time (aside from the occassional squirrel that piques his interest, and who can blame him, the squirrel probably started it). Who couldn't love Andy with those expressive dog eyes and adorably cute face! Could you be Andy's forever home?

Anna

Gender: 

Female

Age:

5 years

Good with:

Kids 8+, Dogs, No Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home, physical fence preferred

Playful, foxy lady!

Adorable Anna is a playful, curious girl whose tail is always wagging. She is super affectionate, loves people and other dogs, and is a rock star kisser. This energetic girl pulls a bit on leash, but is working on that and makes up for it with her great house manners. She loves her crate but foster mom never closes the door, as this well-behaved cutie does not need to be crated. Though she does like to retreat there to rest. Anna is having a great time at her foster home, but goes to sleep dreaming of her forever home.  Could that be with you?

Big Buddy

Gender: 

Male

Age:

3 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence and another dog

Sweetest chunk of chocolate ever!

Big Buddy is a super handsome, sweet chocolate boy who will melt your heart. He had a rough start, and so he’s shy at first meeting. However, once he knows you’re kind and trustworthy, he’s all yours. An easygoing guy, Buddy enjoys car rides and loves the company of other dogs. This big love-bug is a great listener and has one of the cutest head tilts on record! He can't wait to find a forever family that will give him love and attention, and they will have a ball with him.

Blessings

Gender: 

Female

Age:

12 years** ELIGIBLE FOR SENIOR PROMO

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Townhomes with minimal steps

Needs:

A loving forever home

Loving Kindness

Blessings is the kindest, most gentle soul around! She is like a shadow following her foster mom, inquisitive and social, checking out what is going on in all the rooms. A delightful hostess, she is very calm as she welcomes guests into the house and gives each ample opportunity to pet her.  Blessings is also a great work-from-home buddy and is content sitting napping at her person’s feet. Then she's excellent on leash for a short walk when her person would like to stretch their legs. This sweet girl will make someone an excellent, loving companion. Her little tail wag will bring a smile to anyone's heart. Blessings definitely is a blessing!

Bo #3

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence

Bodacious Bo

Looking for company in the form of a good looking energetic and friendly pup? If so, Bo is the guy for you. He loves to retrieve balls and toys, sometimes play with them rather than bring them back. He has a really nice Lablean.  Bo loves to be with you getting petted and thinks belly rubs are wonderful. He needs a family that will take him to training, give him plenty of interactive exercise, and has a yard for him to play in. Some family is going to get a wonderful addition to their family when they adopt Bo!

Buddy #7

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home

Sweet Buddy

How about some chocolate with a little frosting? Sweet Buddy #7 has joined us after being left at a shelter. His foster mom reports that he's a good-natured fellow who will let you know when he wants something with a bark. Due to his age, Buddy will really benefit from a home with one level or minimal steps. His foster mom also highly recommends a "Help'em Up Harness," which works great for him. Buddy is doing great with other dogs and cats (currently living with both at his foster's), and he is approved for children ages 10 and up. If you've got a sweet tooth and minimal stairs, add Buddy to your family today!

Cedar

Gender: 

Male

Age:

10 years** ELIGIBLE FOR SENIOR PROMO

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, No Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Looking for fun? Call me!

Handsome Cedar is supposedly 10, but everyone agrees that he acts much younger. He has been blossoming in his foster home, growing more affectionate and animated by the day, learning manners and leash walking, as well as discovering the joy of toys! He has a very nurturing spirit and has “adopted” several stuffed animals in his foster home, treating them like his puppies, gently licking them and carrying them around the house. His favorite is a stuffed goose that he carries with him everywhere and still looks brand new! At nap time Cedar can be found on the futon or his dog bed, surrounded by his “babies.” He also does well in his crate, often taking one of his babies with him for company. He is fairly low-energy and easy-going, happy with just a couple short walks a day and a little playtime in the yard (bonus points if he gets to roll around in the grass). Cedar's also pretty quiet, but when he does decide to speak up, his bark is an entertaining and adorable cross between a true bark and more of a bay. Cute! Like any self-respecting lab, he can be a counter surfer and dumpster diver, but otherwise he has very good house manners and has not chewed anything that wasn’t his. He is the ultimate car companion and is always thrilled to go for a ride. Cedar is a truly special dog who thinks of life as an adventure, and would love a family to share it with!

Charlie #7

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home, no e-fence

A sweet old guy

Charlie is the sweetest guy ever. He has the most adorable smile and just wants to be with you and be fed.  He especially loves you to scratch his neck and ears. He loves to be with you, especially if there is a comfy bed nearby, and adores being outside. While he can't walk too far, he loves to sniff and root, and, with his foster sister, pretends to give the squirrels a run for it. Won't you make a place in your home for this older gentleman.

Cowboy

Likes to say Howdy to everyone he meets!

Cowboy is a handsome, easy going pup whose favorite activity is lounging indoors with his family. But don't let that fool you - he's also a social butterfly who loves everyone he meets, people or dogs! He loves any and all attention, which he will reward with plenty of kisses. This pup is ready to find his forever home and have an amazing family to dote on him!

Duke #2

Gender: 

Male

Age:

10 years** ELIGIBLE FOR SENIOR PROMO

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, No Cats

Needs:

A forever home with a physical or underground fence

Sweet and regal

Duke is a distinguished gentleman who sports a classy salt and pepper goatee and a silky jet-black coat. Graced with a calm sweet demeanor and gentle disposition, he is generally quiet and restful dog. He likes to nap on his dog bed during the day, and he is comfortable in a crate overnight. He is a happy dog, though not motivated by playing with balls or other toys. He is great on short walks, and is not frightened by cars, people, dogs, or strange noises. Duke is highly observant, especially for local wildlife for which he would happily keep lookout for hours. He quietly watches the deer in the backyard.  Duke is low key, respectful of rules, and adaptable to daily routines. He sleeps and eats in his crate with no problem, and he’s not fazed by storms.

Ebby

Female

Age:

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home with a fairly level yard

Sweet and gentle senior

Sweet Ebby came to Lab Rescue in desperate need of care after years of neglect. Now she's on the mend and looking for a soft landing for her golden years. She loves her food, she loves her bed, and she adores her fake rawhead. She doesn't ask for much, just some understanding of her age and what comes with it. She has an adorable nub which wags when you talk to her, and which is part of her story. Ebby is looking for a loving home where she can snooze in the sun and be loved.

Eli

Gender: 

Male

Age:

1 year

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Townhomes

Needs:

A loving forever home

Handsome hunk of chocolate

How's your sweet tooth?  Eli is a handsome hunk of chocolate, ready to melt into his forever home. This energetic boy is great in the car, as he just settles in and looks forward to the adventure ahead of him. Eli is an active pup that would love a family to help him work off some of that puppy energy. He plays well with other pups, butnhis canine companions should have a similar energy level and the confidence to help Eli be his best self.

Ellie

Gender: 

Female

Age:

2 years

Good with:

Kids 18+, 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. 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. 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.
