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 >

Maverick

Gender: 

Male

Age:

1 year

Good with:

Kids 8+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home

Smart and active guy!

Maverick is a young friendly pup who loves to get attention, be petted and give kisses. He is fun to be with and he loves to be out in the yard playing and running around. He is smart and learns quickly. When he is moved to a new location he needs to be introduced slowly as change is hard on him but he gets over it quickly. He is a young dog and will need interactive exercise every day as walks will not be enough. Maverick would love an active family that has time and energy to give him the exercise and training he needs. He has lived with kids in the past, so is approved for kids 8 and up. He is good with other dogs, and also lived with 2 cats. He needs additional leash training, he is better with an Easy Walk harness. He was crated when left home alone and at night so he wouldn't get in to trouble.

A loving forever home

A loving forever home

Riley is a big teddy bear -- a loving, gentle soul who adores his humans. He loves to go for walks and gets excited when the leash comes out, which is all part of his post-holiday weight-loss plan. It's going well. However, his forever family will need to commit to helping Riley get down to his fighting weight to help with his hip health and make sure he can go on longer walks for many years to come. So far it's going great, he's down to a 5-6 on the body condition scale, from a 7-8! He does get very excited at mealtimes, dancing around the kitchen with foster mom and dad while they fix his breakfast or dinner, but also loves his walks around the neighborhood; he's easy to walk on his harness, greeting everyone that he meets as if they were old friends. He will also benefit by limited sairs and non-slip floors. This young-at-heart, happy senior enjoys his toys, reacting very playfully to anything that squeaks, and he loves to retrieve. He's also recently discovered a love for playing tug-of-war! When not playing, he's happy to lie down in the bed nearest to a human and doze off, or climb up on the couch next to you. He's also delighted to be your work-from-home buddy, though he may snore during his nap break! At night, he's content to lie on the floor in the family room and watch TV. After scratching Riley's back for a few minutes, you'll be rewarded with a grateful gaze and a cuddly lab lean. If you'd like to turn this sweet chocolate chunk into a hunk who will love you forever, come see Riley today! He's going to make a wonderful addition to a family that's looking for an easy-going gentle giant.

Rock

Gender: 

Male

Age:

14 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, No Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home

A perfect gentleman

Rock is a senior distinguished gentleman who likes chicken, squeaky stuffies, and tooling around the back yard. He’s quiet, well-mannered, and calm. He would appreciate a home with few stairs and rug pads on hardwood or tile floors. He has age-related arthritis in his back legs, but he gets around okay and enjoys being outside. He might be a little hard of hearing, but his nose and eyes work just fine when the chicken comes out! Rock is the perfect boy for the family or person looking to give a senior Lab in need of a soft landing and live out his days being spoiled.

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?
