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 >

 

Bear

Gender: 

Male

Age:

10 months

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, No Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

What a good boy!

Bear is very friendly and says he would love to be your new companion. When he meets you not only is his tail wagging -- his whole body is wiggling He is an active pup who likes to play in the yard and retrieves toys and balls very nicely. He loves human contact and thinks he is Lap dog instead of a Lab dog. Bear is smart and knows many commands, and does well with crates! He is full of puppy energy and is looking for an active family to call his own.

Boland

Gender: 

Male

Age:

5 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence

Little gentleman

Boland is a smaller Lab with a sweet disposition. He loves following Foster Mom around the house, his walks and playing with the Resident Dog. He does well on the leash (some pulling a little, but loves walking the trails.) He is house trained and is not a barker. Boland was very shy when we first met him. He is still shy, more so around men than woman. But if you go slow he is fine -- trust must be earned, he says. He is discovering the happiness of loving hands, a gentle touch, a caring voice, and, of course, treats! Like all Labs who start out in tough times, toys are interesting but he doesn't quite know what to do with them yet. He loves playing with other dogs. Best of all, he has one white foot poised ready to shake your hand before you take him home. He is proving to be a great loyal dog who wants to give and receive love.

Buddy #7

13 year **ELIGIBLE FOR A SENIOR DISCOUNT OF $100 OFF THE ADOPTION FEE, THANKS TO A KIND DONOR**

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 with a bark when he wants something. Gentle Buddy is a handsome, older pup who loves adventure and just spending time with his people. He has a sparkle in his eye and goes slow because there’s so much to see. 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. This casual dude will be your best buddy.  If you've got a sweet tooth and minimal stairs, add Buddy to your family today!

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home with a fairly level yard

Sweet and gentle senior

Ebby is such a love who in turn is loving life! She’s laid back, housebroken, loves food, loves her bed, and and adores fake rawhide. Ebby doesn’t require long walks, and has managed to walk down steps with a little help on her harness, but prefers a house with fewer steps (though she will always take more treats). Ebby's looking for a soft landing in her golden years and some understanding of her age and what comes with it. She dreams of a loving home where she can snooze in the sun and be loved. Looking for an easy going girl? Love napping with your pup? She’s definitely made for you!

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. 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.

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Twice as much fun!

Check out those smiles!  Hayley and Jenny both had rough beginnings in life, but that’s all behind them now.  These shy beauties met in their foster home and have been inseparable ever since. They give each other confidence and enjoy hanging with other dogs as well.  The more, the merrier!  Cat friends are cool too!  They have sweet, happy personalities that complement each other in a wonderful way.  It’s obvious Haley and Jenny love each other's company running fast in the yard, chilling on the couch, getting petted and, of course, getting treats.  Inseparable playmates, they can put on quite an entertaining show romping in the yard.  They're looking for a quiet home without too many people coming and going.  Jenny loves to swim, and they both love to be on the couch next to their humans.  Although they need to move at their own pace with new people and surroundings, it is heartwarming to see them gain confidence and trust each day.  Jenny and Hayley will thrive in a patient, loving family!

Hudson

Gender: 

Male

Age:

5 years

Good with:

Kids 13+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

In search of adventure!

Hudson had a rough start to life and is now in search of his loving forever home, "forever" being the key word. 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!

JaJa

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence and another dog

JaJa is the happiest pup!

JaJa 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 and loves to have 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 around other pups! He met the cat outside but did not seem to care. He likes to play with toys and likes to carry them around with him. He would love to get a home with a family that can give him the care and exercise he needs to get back to his proper weight.  JaJa loves to retrieve: https://youtu.be/Eid-baPNti0

Jackie AKA Pillsbury

Gender: 

Female

Age:

1 year

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

As sweet as cookie dough!

Jackie aka Pillsbury (for the adorably shaped dough boy patch on her chest) is a high-energy girl looking for her furever family for fun and love. This one-year old puppy didn’t seem to know what a ball was when we brought her home, but she’s a quick learner and now might even bring it back. She’s also very food-motivated: she knows sit and paw and she’s learning not to jump and to come when called, but she will need a patient family to train and reinforce good behavior. Jackie is curious and investigates strange noises like vacuum cleaners and coffee makers, though sometimes gets startled by noises and movements, as well. She's good with other dogs but prone to over-excitement, and is loud when she wants to play (which is a lot)! Jackie would love a home to give her plenty of attention and exercise, with someone who understands high-energy dogs. Will you add this sweet ball of cookie dough to your life?

Handsome dude!

Jacob is a handsome chocolate Lab who spent too much time in the sun outside, resulting in sun-bleached fur. His chocolate coloring is growing in now that he is living indoors, and he's a beauty. Jacob is really smart, can figure out all sorts of dog food puzzles, and even some you don't want him to figure out! He knows sit and down, and loves short, leisurely walks. This senior is ready for comfy retirement years, inside the house, with a few chew toys, scratches, and a loving family of his own.

Kelly #2

Gender: 

Female

Age:

2 years

Good with:

Kids 18+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence and another dog

Petite and sweet

Kelly is looking for an adult only home with another dog. She is really a puppy at heart and wants to learn--she has mastered many commands. For whatever her reason, she needs a gentle hand and a calm voice right now to help her start her new life. She is a bit shy at first but once she figures out you are a feind she is incredibly affectionate. She loves other dogs and would benefit from living with another dog to build her confidence.

Maggie #3

Gender: 

Female

Age:

3 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home in a quiet neighborhood with a physical fence and another dog

Sweet and petite!

Maggie is a sweet, petite girl who is still learning about the kinder things in life. She continues to make strides coming out of her shell and learning to trust people. A huge breakthrough happened this week when Maggie greeted her foster mom at the door! This shy girl takes in her surroundings day-to-day and tries more each day to join in on the fun! She loves being with the resident Labs. Lately she's learned that petting feels really good and snuggling in beds (human or canine) makes her happy. She also loves to snuggle with resident dog and is getting closer to snuggling with foster mom! Maggie needs an experienced owner to show her that things in life aren't as scary as they may seem, and give her unconditional love. Could that be you?

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

A loving and loyal companion

Meg (Megadog) is a wonderful older dog who likes to relax in the living room with her people. After she learns to know and trust you, she becomes the most adoring and loyal companion you could ever find! Meg is a wonderful older dog who listens well to commands and likes to relax on the couch with a human by her side. She has a ball that discharges treats as she pushes it around with her nose or maneuvers it with a paw like a doggie soccer star, but she will only play with it in the evening and has displayed impressive ball-handling skills! Meg has gotten in the habit of coming upstairs to sleep each night and sometimes prompts Foster mom and dad about when its time for bed. She prefers that everyone go up together and often won’t go up the final few stairs unless she sees both of her people.

Olivia

Gender: 

Female

Age:

2 years

Good with:

Kids 7+, Dogs, No Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence

Sweet mama ready for some "me" time!

Olivia is a very sweet and friendly pup, she likes everyone she meets. She was excellent mother and took super care of her 11 pups. Now that all the pups are in their new homes it is time that Olivia went to hers. She gets her exercise by playing out in the yard with other dogs and chasing those pesky squirrels. If you are sitting on the couch she will join you to be close and likes to sleep on her dog bed at the foot of fosters' bed. She takes treats gently. Anyone who brings Olivia home will be getting a sweet and loving companion.
