SENIORS

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 >

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!

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!

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.

Ready to shower you with love!

Handsome Papa is looking for a place to land! This very affectionate senior is looking for someone to shower with love during his Golden Years. While Papa doesn't see or hear quite as well as he used to, he still is a puppy at heart! This quiet, very reserved, older, slow moving gent was hopping, barking, and wild tail wagging when he saw the neighbor throwing a frisbee with his dog! Papa is very friendly and enjoys being close to his people. Since his vision and hearing aren't as great as they once were, he would do best in a home with an older or calmer canine sibling he can take cues from. He would also love a home with minimal stairs so he can stay as close to his people as possible. Papa is a lovely older gentleman ready to find his forever people!

Riley #4

Male

Age:

A loving forever home

A loving forever home

Please welcome Riley! This handsome chunk of chocolate is a very sweet boy, potty trained, and walks well on leash. Riley needs to lose around 25 pounds, so his new family will need to be committed to helping him through diet and gentle exercise. Riley has some issues laying down and getting back up. While weight loss may help with this, he will need to continue taking medication and supplements. Due to his age, Riley struggles with slick floors like hardwood, laminate, etc. as well, so he needs someone who is willing to put down rugs or who has a mostly carpeted home (one level and/or minimal stairs would probably also be quite a blessing!). This handsome old man is happy to be your work from home buddy, though he may snore during his nap break! If you'd like to turn this chunk into a hunk that will love you forever, come see Riley today!
