BONDED PAIRS

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 >

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 who are figuring out how to live indoors. Leashes are new to them, and they’ve shown progress as they get to know the ropes of leash walking. They are house broken, know some commands, ride well in the car, and are champion nappers. They get along well with the resident labs and resident small dog. Faith has taken on duty of keeping the yard free of squirrels, so they should likely not go to a home with cats. Both are friendly, and Faith will initially bark when an unknown person comes into the house, then settles once she’s deemed the person okay. Faith and Hope are easy dogs who like to check in with one another, but can be comfortable doing their own thing. 


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

Lilly and Luna

Gender: 

Female/Female Bonded Pair

Age:

5 years/1 year

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Double the Love!

Lilly and Luna recently had their world turned upside down and are now looking for a new home! These girls are a bonded pair, so will need to be adopted together. They're hoping for a fun, patient family that wants to shower them with love! Both girls have plenty of energy, especially Luna who is still a baby. Luna will have a required training addendum (but Lilly would probably do great at training too!). Lilly is the big sister, sporting a beautiful light yellow coat, and Luna is the younger girl, wearing a lovely chocolate wrap. If you'd like to double your fun, look no further than Lilly and Luna!

Pluto and Bitty

Gender: 

Male/Female Bonded Pair

Age:

7 years/9 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home

Odd Couple for Life

Pluto and Bitty may be a study in opposites, but they're real life BFFs! These two middle-aged pals lost their home when their owner's job changed. They're so happy we could spring them from the shelter together! Both Bitty and Pluto get along well with other dogs (especially one another!). Pluto has met cats before and may do well with a dog-savvy cat and a proper introduction. Bitty may also do okay with them. Pluto is the 7-year-old black Lab (48 lbs) and Bitty is the 9-year-old Shih Tzu (14 lbs). Combined weight and they are still on the side of a smaller Lab! If you've ever met a Shish Tzu, size is not an issue--they think they are big dogs so she is welcome to be a part of Lab Rescue!

Rocky #3 and Maggie #3

Gender: 

Male/Female Bonded Pair

Age:

4 years/4 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Double the fun

Maggie and Rocky don't know why they have been assigned the number 3 because they know they are number 1! This bonded pair must be adopted together. Rocky thinks you said "Lap Dog" not "Lab dog" because he loves to climb into your lap despite his size. Maggie follows Rocky's cues and gets her confidence from him being by her side. They still have a lot of energy so will need plenty of exercise and room to romp. They are a little too interested in cats, so no cats in their future, just a happy forever home!

Shadow #3 & Mila

Gender: 

Male/Female Bonded Pair

Age:

Both 6 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Double the fun!

Mila & Shadow like to stay where the family is. They have been together since they were puppies and must be adopted together. They are very bonded and do not like to be out of sight of the other one. They love attention. Mila will put her head in your lap, while Shadow will come up after a minute and put his paw in your lap. They know: no, lay down, paw, sit and easy (to take treats gently). They are good with other dogs. No cat history. They pull some on lead, but settle down after a few minutes. They are house and crate trained but have never been in a crate and don’t need one. Shadow likes to retrieve his soccer ball and Mila goes for tennis balls sometimes. They both like getting their bellies and heads rubbed. They sleep on dog beds in the bedroom or family room. Mila is all black and Shadow is black with chocolate highlights. They would like a family that will give them lots of attention and has a yard for to them to play in.

Spatz and Pippin

Gender: 

Female/Female Bonded Pair

Age:

7 years/7 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Plug and Play Labs

Spatz and Pipin are an adorable bonded pair, so they must be adopted together. Pipin is the yellow girl who is more outgoing of the duo, but they are both very friendly. They are fine with other dogs and can either go to a home with dogs or without. They just want a forever home! Adopting a bonded pair is easier than it looks. Pairs play with each other, comfort each other, and are not as unhappy when left at home during the day.
