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 >

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Peppy Pup!

Americano, also known as Milton, is a sweet puppy who is very loving to his foster family. Like most younger dogs, he is full of energy and needs plenty of exercise. He LOVES treats - this has been very helpful in training him. He also loves peanut butter, which his foster family spreads on the shower wall in order to give him a bath (good trick, right?). Americano is a joy! He is excited to go in his crate at night, he’s very playful, has been a quick learner on some commands, and enjoys his training walks around the neighborhood. He’s very sweet and has sorted things out with his feline housemates. This affectionate boy loves belly rubs and brings a lot of enthusiasm to the start of each day. He is going to be a lot of fun for the right family!

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Two gorgeous lovebugs

Autumn and Rex are an adorable, bonded pair of 6-year-old sweethearts! Rex is the dominant dog in this duo. He’s a handsome blonde block head who is affectionate, friendly, and full of fun. He loves long walks and stuffy toys and is always up for some snuggle time. Autumn is equally stunning with extra long ears that wave in the wind, a soft white coat, and a huge goofy smile. She is bubbly and energetic and loves to retrieve balls and frisbees. Autumn also enjoys long walks but sometimes pulls when her excitement to greet others gets the best of her. When she’s not playing with toys or doing zoomies in the yard, Autumn likes to wind down with her head in your lap. These fun-loving friends are looking for an active family who will give them plenty of playtime and lots of love and affection.

Axle

Gender: 

Male

Age:

2 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Happy active pup

Axle loves all types of dogs and people, and gets so excited to play with everyone! He’s the perfect size at 55 pounds and 2 years old. He LOVES toys and bones and those keep him occupied for hours while foster mom works. Axle will happily sleep on your pillow with you if you want, or in his crate if you’re not much of a cuddler. He is house trained and crate trained. He gets two-15 minute walks a day and play time with his foster brother (also 2 years old) outside. They love to wrestle! He needs continued work on his leash training as well as knowing which toys are his to chew on, but that’s about all he needs to sleep through the rest of the day and night without a peep! He would be the perfect addition to a family dog that needs a playmate and just as great as an only child!

BB Jr.

Gender: 

Male

Age:

9 months

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence

Young happy puppy!

BB Jr. is pure puppy power. He is a young happy dog who likes to be outside playing, and especially likes to retrieve. He'll even bring it back -- except when he tries to lure you into a game of chase-me. He likes to be petted and reeealllyyy likes his belly rubbed. He loves water and thinks the stream from a hose is something he should try to eat. He also enjoys splashing around in kiddie pools and going to the river to wade. If you let him he will put his head in your lap to get petted and before you know it he will be in your lap to snuggle with you while you binge your favorite TV show -- he may even watch it with you! He would love a family that has a yard and will give him the love, attention, training, and exercise he needs to thrive. BB Jr. is a prize and who ever adopts him will be getting a great pup, but he is also a puppy who will need plenty of interactive play to supplement walks.

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence and another dog

Hiking buddy ready to go!

Biscuit is a handsome fellow full of puppy energy. He is looking for a family with a resident dog who is equally active and playful so they can burn off their energy together. Walks are not enough for this guy. Biscuit needs several hours a day of hard play with another dog, as well as activities inside with his humans. He is very smart and likes puzzle toys and other enrichment games. After he has gotten some exercise, he loves to settle down and cuddle with his people. He was recently introduced to trail hiking and enjoyed all the new smells in the air and textures beneath his paws. He was very interested in dragging tree branches as far as he could. Biscuit even found a path covered in ice and proceeded to slide down the ice on his belly with his tail wagging the whole time.

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.

Costa

Gender: 

Male

Age:

3 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Outgoing guy with gorgeous eyes!

Costa is sweet as pie, but a bit like a bull in a china shop! He is happy, energetic and exuberant, but needs to learn manners. Costa is strong and needs someone who can help him learn how to be his best self on leash. He LOVES balls and toys and carries a ball everywhere. A ball is the best training motivation for this guy (more than treats!). He knows fetch and will chase his ball endlessly; he brings the ball back and is learning to drop it for another throw. He has spent most of his life outside, so he is learning what it is like to be an inside dog. Costa needs an active adopter that will provide him with guidance and at least an hour of exercise daily. He would love to be your exercise partner and teach you how to throw the ball for him – repeatedly :)

Dolly

5 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with another dog and a physical fence

It's Dolly time!

Dolly is such a sweetheart. She rode well in the car and was happy to meet all humans along the way. The volunteer that met her prior to coming to Lab Rescue, said she was very sweet and gentle, and was happy to have attention. Because Dolly came from a breeder situation and lived outside she will need to get used to indoor living. She is settling in very nicely to her foster home so far! While still recovering from her spay, she has been nothing but sweet and mellow and loving. Most of the day, she is content to lounge around the house. When she goes outside on a leash, she's calm and gentle, taking her time to sniff and explore. She isn't super food motivated, but she will definitely pay attention for some chicken or a bite of hotdog! She has a sweet face, a gentle wag, and occasional kisses for her foster family. She can go up and down stairs, but she prefers to not. She's housetrained, and goes into her crate easily. Dolly is a super sweet soul, looking for a calm place to live out her post-breeder days.

Ellie

Gender: 

Female

Age:

5 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence and another dog

Affectionate Ellie

Ellie is settling in to her foster home nicely, hanging with her foster who is home most of the time. She loves her four-legged foster siblings and is searching for a forever home with another dog to show her that not all that is new is scary. She’ll need an experienced adopter who understands her shyness. Ellie would enjoy a yard with a fence to play in, she comes when called. Ellie plays hard with willing youngsters, but will respect her elders who don't want to play. She likes to take all of her toys out and rearrange them frequently. Her favorite toys are Kong wubbas and fuzzy spherical Barkbox toys. She will relocate and occasionally wrestle with her fluffy dog bed, but leaves her foam bed alone. Ellie is going to make a beautiful addition to any family with the patience and understanding to suit her needs.
