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 >

Blackie

Gender: 

Male

Age:

12 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Sweet older fella

Handsome Blackie lost his home when his owner went into hospice care. We're sure this has been a very confusing time for this distinguished gentleman, but he has taken it all in stride! He is a spry senior gentleman who loves walks and kids. His favorite activities include hanging out in the backyard, or lounging inside -- which is to say, he's happy anywhere he's getting loved on! While he's able to get up and down stairs, it's not easy for him, and he'll do best in a house with fewer stairs. He is quite a sweet older fellow with plenty of love left to share with you. He is good with dogs, but unknown with cats. If you'd like to give this young-at-heart guy a loving home and a soft bed, please contact your Adoption Coordinator today.

Liam

Gender: 

Male

Age:

10 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Gentleman through and through

Liam has been a wonderful pal to have around in his foster home. His house manners are top notch even when he visited another foster for a few days. At his temporary foster’s house, we learned he has the potential to live with a dog-savvy cat. He enjoys his skin care routine of meds, wipes for his paws, and a refreshing massage to rub into the folds of skin on his neck. Liam loves the car and looks forward to walks where he can pick the route. He can be an independent guy but also enjoys a good snuggle. He is just looking to make someone not lonely. Liam follows the house rules and loves to sleep in different spots.

Needs:

A loving forever home

Miles of Smiles!

Miles is the perfect combination of calm, inquisitive lab, and sweetness anyone could want in a furry friend. He arrived at his vacation foster Thursday and truly enjoyed exploring the yard. He cannot wait until his rest period is over from being neutered so he can enjoy some walks in the woods. He loves being with his people, looking out the windows, and getting all the pets! He is a great houseguest. He sleeps through the night, house broken, and can be left alone in the house without touching anything he shouldn't. If you want a gentle companion Miles is your man.

Sadie

Female

Age:

10 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Sweet Lady Sadie

Sadie is the girl for you if you are looking for an easy dog as a companion! This sweet senior still has a lot of spring in her step. She loves walking on a leash and is still learning how to walk in a straight line without tripping FM. Sadie has impeccable manners. She is so quiet, no begging, no whining, no barking, except for a rare soft "woof". She wags when she wants to eat, go out or just be petted. She doesn't climb on furniture, chew on anything unless it's given to her, nor does she rush to the door. Her favorite spot is on the cool floor or on the carpet next to the couch. Sadie does not like stairs, so a home with minimal stairs would be best for her. She was shy when she was first sprung from the kennel and can still be shy and curious when friends come to visit. When she goes outside, she is not interested in bolting and stays with her fosters. Sadie loves her foster family but is looking forward to loving her furever family.

Sheeba

Gender: 

Female

Age:

14 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

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.

Trampus

Gender: 

Male

Age:

11 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home

Southern Gentleman

Trampus is the ultimate Southern gentleman, a congenial senior addition to his foster’s dog and cat commune. He's a bit of a velcro dog, he must make sure his foster is doing everything right, following her from room to room -- even if he has just gotten hunkered down in his nest. He also loves pets, except he is a little headshy -- all other body parts are fair game, however. Trampus has pretty severe arthritis and will be on pain relievers and joint supplements for the rest of his golden years. His foster is looking for a veterinary acupuncturist in the area to see if that will bring him some relief. And he'd much prefer a home with fewer stairs. He would love a spot to live out the rest of his years, where someone doesn’t mind a creaky old dog with wonderful house manners. Will you open up your home to this sweet senior?

Wynona

Gender: 

Female

Age:

10 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Sweet as can be

Wynona is a beauty whose tail wags non-stop. She easily adapted to life with her foster family. She is a low-energy girl and just needs a few short walks each day and a cozy couch for naps. She enjoys looking out the window and watching the squirrels and birds. She loves Kongs stuffed with treats. Wynona has some interest in squeaky toys, but mostly loves to lay with her humans and plunk her pretty head in your lap. She is affectionate and likes to be near people. Wynona is good with other dogs, but is looking for a home where she will be the only dog. She is loving and loyal and would prefer to have her humans all to herself. She has lived with a cat in the past and loves the company of kids (approved for kids 10+). Wynona would be most comfortable in a home with limited stairs. She has perfect house manners, even at dinner time, and sleeps in the living room at night with the resident dogs. She is a smart, lovable girl who doesn't need much to be happy.
