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 >

Ash/Tinsley

Gender: 

Female

Age:

1 year

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence (no e-fence)

Life of the party!

THANKS TO A GENEROUS DONOR, WHO THINKS EVERY LAB DESERVES A HOME OF THEIR OWN, THE ADOPTION FEE FOR THIS PUP IS $200


Ash is a very cute, fun, young girl. She's an absolute goofball and keeps foster mom and the resident dog entertained with her comical personality. She is smart and quite active, so she will need mental stimulation as well as physical activities. This fun and funny girl loves to amuse herself by playing with toys and running zoomies. After some great playtime, she settles nicely inside and is happy to nap on the couch or her favorite bed. Ash loves to chase birds and squirrels and is always on the lookout for them. She is crate trained and house trained and is doing very well on her leash training. Ash will come with a training addendum which will help with her leash walking. She still needs to have an eye kept on her in the house as she can be a sneaky girl if you leave something laying around that may look like something to play with and chew. Puppy proofing is always best. A social butterfy, she remembers folks she's met in the past, and warms up quickly to new people if they let her go at her own pace. She can be a little excitable meeting new dogs and needs proper introductions. Ash is doing so well becoming the perfect young lady, but she is still missing one thing... A family of her own that will love her, appreciate her puppy antics, and continue to help her grow and blossom. She would also love a puppy playmate that can keep up with her!

Bambi

Gender: 

Female

Age:

2 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Sweet Active Girl!

THANKS TO A GENEROUS DONOR, WHO THINKS EVERY LAB DESERVES A HOME OF THEIR OWN, THE ADOPTION FEE FOR THIS PUP IS $200.

 

Pretty and petite Bambi is such a great dog! She will play out in the yard and then come inside to chill and get some cuddles. For her age she is very relaxed and calm, possibly because she’s been a momma dog and has that nurturing personality. She nurtures the shy pups in her foster home and plays well with the other dogs. Her favorite things to do are to play and eat (imagine that!). She has nice house manners, and enjoys comfy couches and being with her people. Bambi keeps a close eye on things at home and will let you know if visitors are making their way to the door. She does great in a car and is working on improving her leash skills. She just wants to please. Won't you give this sweet, beautiful girl a chance?

Birdie

Gender: 

Female

Age:

1 year 1 month

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

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

Sweet and petite!

Adorable Birdie is a sweet, gentle soul. She is shy when you first meet her but warms up and loves to be petted. She will slide down and roll over to get her belly rubbed. She is making great progress in her foster home. She is pretty easy from a training perspective, and as a young pup will benefit from additional training and the bonding time with her new family. She loves to play in the yard and will benefit with another playful, confident dog in her home to burn off her energy and help her relax around new things. This silly little girl takes treats gently and enjoys a nice car ride. Birdie is looking for a family that has another dog to give her confidence and to be her BFF, a fenced yard for her safety, will go slowly with her, and will give her the love, training, and exercise a young pup needs. She will be a very loving companion.

Blackie #2/Mackie

Gender: 

Female

Age:

8 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Total package!

Blackie, or as we are calling her, Mackie, or The Mackadoodle, is the total package, the real deal, the whole enchilada.  Mackie is easy on leash. She is housebroken to a fault- She is very efficient when she does go out and while she enjoys her walks, she would just as soon be inside with folks. She has no need for a crate since she has perfect manners. She isn't very interested in toys, but has enjoyed chewing on a bone, and has retrieved a stuffed toy when thrown for her. Mackie is gentle with treats and a very deliberate grazer at mealtime. Mackie has never met a stranger. She loves everyone, and while she doesn't jump, she might try to crawl up you. She 'stays' when asked, no matter how much she wants to follow you. She is excited to meet her forever family soon!

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Not who you think!

THANKS TO A GENEROUS DONOR WHO WANTS ALL PAIRS TO STAY TOGETHER IN THEIR QUEST FOR HOMES, THE TOTAL ADOPTION FEE FOR THIS PAIR IS $325. DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE; DOUBLE YOUR FUN!


Bonnie (brown and white) and Clyde are a bonded pair looking for their special family. They are both very sweet and affectionate. They love to play with each other and spend time with their family, snuggling, walking, and playing in a fenced yard. They want and need a home where they will be an active part of the family. They really enjoy long walks where they explore the world around them. They think it might be fun to catch a cat, so no cats for these two. They are great with all people and enjoy having visitors. Importantly, Bonnie and Clyde so want to please, and provided they get the training and exercise that active dogs need, these playful pups will make a family very happy!

Brock and Daisy #3

Gender: 

Male/Female Bonded Pair

Age:

2 years/7 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, No Cats

Needs:

A loving home with a physical fence

Special duo in search of a special home

Brock and Daisy are looking for a very special home. Brocky was born with a congenital defect that affects his back end -- he was born without a tail and has some difficulty moving his back legs, though he has adapted to that fairly well by hopping. He is also unable to control when he goes to the potty. He does well wearing a belly band and diaper indoors. Both pups are very friendly and adore love and attention. They are used to running around a fenced yard during the day, so a fenced yard is a requirement. Brock has a required training addendum, so his new family will need to commit to that. Despite his leg issues, Brock loves to run and retrieve balls and frisbees. Daisy is happy to follow along, but doesn't really fetch. Daisy adores kiddie pools filled with water, but Brock doesn't. Both are frightened by fireworks and will bark. These two have mostly lived in the yard and a barn the past few years, though Brock has lived inside before. They'll need some patience and instruction in indoor living, leash-walking, etc. They haven't had many car rides, but did well on the ones they did have. Both are good with other dogs, but shouldn't be around cats. They're approved for children ages 10 and up. If your heart is big enough for this sweet, loving pair, please come meet them today.

Big, friendly boy!

Big, handsome Brutus is looking for a loving place to land! He was found as a stray and is new to Lab Rescue, so we're not sure what he's familiar with.

Watch for more information about Brutus as we get to know him better.

3 years

Good with:

Kid 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence

Your best Buddy!

Handsome Buddy #7 is a happy, friendly guy with beautiful, amber eyes. His tail starts waggging as he greets you -- faster and faster when he discovers you have treats and want to give him a nice petting. He thinks playing with other dogs is great fun but will give that up to be with his people. He likes to retrieve but bringing it back is sometimes a different story. Buddy would love to find a family that has a fenced yard and will give him the love, attention, and training he needs to thrive. He'll be their best Budddy!

Chloe

Gender: 

Female

Age:

4 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence. Must be the only dog in the home.

Her eyes will melt your heart

Chloe is super sweet, affectionate and loves to be petted. When out for a walk, everyone always comments on how beautiful she is. Her leash manners continue to improve on her easy walk harness, and an experienced handler will definitely bring out the best in her. Chloe loves meeting new humans and is super affectionate but needs a slower introduction to new dogs. She would prefer to be an only dog to soak up all her family’s affection. At home, she has impeccable manners, doesn’t need to be crated, and if you’re working from home she will snooze quietly in a sunny spot next to you. Chloe is as good as gold, smart, patient, so so loving, and very upbeat - always wagging her tail and trotting around looking cute and happy. She can't wait to meet you!

Dewey

Gender: 

Male

Age:

6 months

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever female only home with a physical fence and another dog

Delightful Dewey!

Dewey is a very happy and playful puppy. He used to live outside with 12 other labs, so he was intentionally placed in a single-female home with a pack of dogs, to give him the time and space to adjust to indoor living and learn to trust humans. In his foster home, Dewey has transformed into a fun-loving, people-loving pup. It has been a joy to watch him gain confidence and feel secure in his surroundings. Every day he makes great strides and feels more and more comfortable. Dewey loves to play with all the dogs at his foster home, but really enjoys the younger, energetic foster siblings. They play chase, carry sticks together, roll around or play tug or war for hours— then come in for a nap. Dewey is still timid around men, but he is making great strides in approaching them. He relies on the resident dogs as his role models for just about everything by following their lead. Surrounded by the pack, he happily rushes the neighbors (the men too) for treats and love. He would like to live with another confident, playful dog who will show him the ropes. Dewey will thrive in an active family with patient humans who will give him plenty of time to settle in. He is easy-going, curious, and delightful.

Gilligan

Gender: 

Male

Age:

6 years

Good with:

Kids 6+ Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence at least 4' tall

In search of a skipper!

Gilligan needs a new skipper! He appears to be a Lab and Flat Coat Retriever mix and is super cuddly. Although not a kisser, he loves to be touched, brushed, bathed, to snuggle up close, and has an awesome Lab lean. He wrestles and plays sharky with the residents and adores peanut butter stuffed Kongs, stuffies, and his box of toys. He hovers near his fosters when they are inside and spends the balance of his time exploring the outdoors with his foster brothers or snoozing in the dog bed closest to the door. Gilly loves his walks and will walk in winding patterns back and forth -- not pulling, but his walker might need both hands and a little practice to get used to it! Gilligan has mild hydrocephalus, which fortunately has not gotten any worse over the last 5 years...nor is it expected to. He takes one omeprazole (Prilosec) every day to keep fluid at bay. Gilly is trained to use a dog door, as he gets very little notice of when he needs to go to the bathroom, but generally has no problem getting out the door in time. Since he needs the dog door, he also needs a fence to keep him safe. (A new dog door insert for sliders will go with him to his adoptive home, if desired.) Gilligan is totally comfortable in the car and did great on a big dog bed on a 4-hour drive. This lovable guy passed his cat test four years ago but hasn't been in foster long enough for a retest yet. He does well with younger children. Interested in opening your heart to Gilligan? Come meet him for a "3-hour tour" and maybe it'll turn into the adventure of a lifetime! He will certainly make a great addition to any loving home.
