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 >

Loving Kindness

Blessings is the kindest, most gentle soul around! She is like a shadow following her foster mom, inquisitive and social, checking out what is going on in all the rooms. A delightful hostess, she is very calm as she welcomes guests into the house and gives each ample opportunity to pet her.  Blessings is also a great work-from-home buddy and is content sitting napping at her person’s feet. Then she's excellent on leash for a short walk when her person would like to stretch their legs. This sweet girl will make someone an excellent, loving companion. Her little tail wag will bring a smile to anyone's heart. Blessings definitely is a blessing!

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 when he wants something with a bark. 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. Buddy is doing great with other dogs and cats (currently living with both at his foster's), and he is approved for children ages 10 and up. If you've got a sweet tooth and minimal stairs, add Buddy to your family today!

Cedar

Gender: 

Male

Age:

10 years** ELIGIBLE FOR SENIOR PROMO

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, No Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Looking for fun? Call me!

Handsome Cedar is supposedly 10, but everyone agrees that he acts much younger. He has been blossoming in his foster home, growing more affectionate and animated by the day, learning manners and leash walking, as well as discovering the joy of toys! He has a very nurturing spirit and has “adopted” several stuffed animals in his foster home, treating them like his puppies, gently licking them and carrying them around the house. His favorite is a stuffed goose that he carries with him everywhere and still looks brand new! At nap time Cedar can be found on the futon or his dog bed, surrounded by his “babies.” He also does well in his crate, often taking one of his babies with him for company. He is fairly low-energy and easy-going, happy with just a couple short walks a day and a little playtime in the yard (bonus points if he gets to roll around in the grass). Cedar's also pretty quiet, but when he does decide to speak up, his bark is an entertaining and adorable cross between a true bark and more of a bay. Cute! Like any self-respecting lab, he can be a counter surfer and dumpster diver, but otherwise he has very good house manners and has not chewed anything that wasn’t his. He is the ultimate car companion and is always thrilled to go for a ride. Cedar is a truly special dog who thinks of life as an adventure, and would love a family to share it with!

A sweet old guy

Charlie is the sweetest guy ever. He has the most adorable smile and just wants to be with you and be fed.  He especially loves you to scratch his neck and ears. He loves to be with you, especially if there is a comfy bed nearby, and adores being outside. While he can't walk too far, he loves to sniff and root, and, with his foster sister, pretends to give the squirrels a run for it. Won't you make a place in your home for this older gentleman.

This pup is ready to find his forever home and have an amazing family to dote on him!

Duke #2

Good with:

Needs:

A forever home with a physical or underground fence

Sweet and regal

Duke is a distinguished gentleman who sports a classy salt and pepper goatee and a silky jet-black coat. Graced with a calm sweet demeanor and gentle disposition, he is generally quiet and restful dog. He likes to nap on his dog bed during the day, and he is comfortable in a crate overnight. He is a happy dog, though not motivated by playing with balls or other toys. He is great on short walks, and is not frightened by cars, people, dogs, or strange noises. Duke is highly observant, especially for local wildlife for which he would happily keep lookout for hours. He quietly watches the deer in the backyard.  Duke is low key, respectful of rules, and adaptable to daily routines. He sleeps and eats in his crate with no problem, and he’s not fazed by storms.

Sweet and gentle senior

Sweet Ebby came to Lab Rescue in desperate need of care after years of neglect. Now she's on the mend and looking for a soft landing for her golden years. She loves her food, she loves her bed, and she adores her fake rawhead. She doesn't ask for much, just some understanding of her age and what comes with it. She has an adorable nub which wags when you talk to her, and which is part of her story. Ebby is looking for a loving home where she can snooze in the sun and be loved.

Salty The Sweet Boy!

Salty loves to be with people and greets everyone with a happily wagging tail. He has experienced some hard times, but you’d never know based on his very loving, affectionate disposition. He is a sweetheart and loves attention and affection -- he is making up for lost time. Salty is not a total couch potato, but he is pretty low-key indoors. He's working on mastering stairs, as they are new to him, but would do best in a home with limited stairs. Leash walking was also new to him, but this smart boy quickly figured it out and is enjoying his two daily walks, taking in all the sights and smells of the city. He's really enjoying the good life and shows so much love and appreciation!  This sweet boy can't wait to find his loving, forever home.
