SENIOR 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 >

Peanut #4

Male

Age:

9 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Precious Peanut

Precious Peanut is looking for a kind, loving home that will help him be comfortable and shower him with love. Peanut came to us with a tumor that turned out to be malignant and has unfortunately spread, which means he is considered a hospice dog. At this time, we don't know how much time Peanut has left with us, but we're hoping we can show him some love and care in the meantime. Despite his diagnosis, Peanut has a lot of energy and is incredibly friendly. He lived on a farm his whole life. Peanut is good with other dogs, however he chases cats, so it's best he go to a home without those. If you have room in your heart and home for a loving, friendly fellow with an uncertain future, are you willing to bring Peanut home today?

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with no e-fence

Million dollar dog!

Foster said she hit the jackpot with Roxie. She is super sweet and active and quite able for her age. Roxie was excited to meet her evaluator and their black lab, Cowboy -- and of course, she was excited about treats and toys, especially tennis balls. She's comfortable with pets and responds to basic commands, but probably hasn't had formal training. She is a senior sweetheart with proof of a heart on her head. She is housebroken, walks well on leash, likes other dogs and ignores rabbits. Roxie has the most gentle mouth. She is moderately overweight and will probably benefit from less free feeding and/or more activity. Overall, she's a really good girl!

A loving forever home with minimal stairs

A True Queen

Sheeba is a sweet senior lady with a pretty white coat and toasted almond tips on her tail and ears. This easy-going girl loves napping and hanging out with her humans. She's a very mellow total sweetheart. Sheeba gets along great with the two resident labs and the neighbor’s golden retriever, who is a crazy ball of energy. Though she doesn’t really play with him, she always likes to greet him with a wagging tail. Her foster mom says she is calm, sweet, and understanding and welcomes anyone into her life with a smile. She enjoys slow easy walks and wandering around the yard stiffing all the good stuff. Her happy home would include lots of love and attention, a couple of cozy dog beds and a family that will help her feel safe and secure.
