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 >

Eboni (aka Ebby) has a sweet, quiet personality. She loves playing with tennis balls, either with someone else or by herself. She enjoys casual strolls around the neighborhood and is great on leash. She has a little weakness in her backend so her walks are at a slow pace, but she enjoys going outside. She has excellent house manners and does not need a crate. She doesn’t get on the furniture and rides well in the car. Foster Mom is home with her during the day, but when Eboni is left alone for short periods of time she is always good. Eboni had a lot of fun playing with a neighborhood pup and would probably enjoy living with another dog. She has little to no interest in food. She leaves treats laying on the floor or on her bed for hours. But, she will always check out what you are eating, and never turns down a tortilla chip! Eboni can be a little unsure around new people. When house guests visited for the weekend, she warmed up after 30 minutes—-very good progress. She’s never clingy or attention-seeking. She is just a lovely girl and a mellow companion. Eboni would do best in a mature household with quieter noises and not a lot of commotion. Loud and sudden noises tend to startle her. She went on a walk in the evening (dark outside) and encountered a lot of bikes and scooters. She preferred to walk on the street to avoid them on the sidewalk. Foster Mom let Eboni sniff and approach the bikes/scooters slowly to check things out. Eboni sniffed them and seemed to be better. There were kids out on her walk, too, and she tends to avoid them as well (especially if they are riding a bike). She had her first Frosty Paw and she loved every minute of it!

Meet Jacinta! Jacinta has some great traits...She is amazing! She is a gold medal sleeper! When it's time for bed she goes quietly and sleeps through the night.  She doesn't get on any furniture and is completely housebroken. She doesn't need to be crated and has been left on her own in her foster home and nothing is out of place. She loves her daily walks; is easy on leash and is content with a few reasonable length walks per day. She takes treats very gently. Jacinta's ideal family would include a home on the quieter side with people who are home more than not. She's working through some skin issues but is a champion taking her medicated baths, meds and eye drops. Do you have room in your heart and home for Jacinta?

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Lovely Libby

THANKS TO A GENEROUS DONOR WHO WOULD LIKE TO ALL SENIORS HOME IN TIME TO SNIFF MAY FLOWERS, SENIOR ADOPTION FEES ARE HALVED TO $125!  


Libby is a gentle, easy-going girl. She is not a big dog, but she has really big Lab feet! Libby has impaired vision but it does not affect her happiness. She can see shapes and navigates her way around the house and yard easily if given a little extra time to learn the landscape. She also has some hearing loss and can't hear you tell her to “sit” or “come.” But somehow she can hear the refrigerator door open and if she hears a food wrapper, she springs to her feet (hmm, selective hearing?). Libby likes her crate but has the run of the house. She can handle stairs to go outside, but is happy to sleep on her dog bed on the main floor when the rest of the family goes upstairs for the night. Libby loves to be outdoors. She enjoys two short walks a day, wagging her tail as she goes. In August, Libby had a mast cell tumor removed from her abdomen and needs to take Benadryl and Pepcid AC as preventatives for the rest of her life. She doesn’t play with toys but has a pair of wool socks that she carries around the house. Libby has a sweet disposition and is loved by her entire foster family. The best thing about her is her smile.

Lovely Lucy!

THANKS TO A GENEROUS DONOR WHO WOULD LIKE TO SEE ALL SENIORS IN THEIR HOMES TO SMELL MAY FLOWERS, THE SENIOR ADOPTION FEE IS HALVED TO $125!!!  

Lucy is a sweetheart who enjoys attention and greets everyone with a wagging tail. She is quite spunky for a mature lady and still enjoys running zoomies! But she also knows how to relax. Lucy lives in the moment... your moment. She will play fetch when you have the time, lie down while you work from home, walk with purpose when she’s out for a stroll, and will cuddle on the couch when you watch tv. She loves car rides, or even just being in the car. She walks well on an Easy Walk harness, navigates stairs well, loves playing with her ball, and will do just about anything for a cheese puff! Being with her people makes her feel safe; and at least for now, she prefers to have a human next to her while she eats and goes outside to go potty. She also likes being involved in whatever her humans are doing -- she'll find a comfy spot of grass and watch your every move! Since she likes to be around people so much, someone home more often than not would be great! Lucy is definitely a people person, but she can be a bit circumspect about her canine acquaintances. Lucy knows sit, down, and stay; she also walks great on the leash. This happy, affectionate, social butterfly would love to be your best friend. Just look at that hopeful, smiling face!

Lucy is the sweetest girl who just wants love, attention, and a comfortable bed. Her family will need to be ok with the aging process and all that comes with it. She loves to nap and will often be sleeping near one of the resident dogs in her foster home. She does have arthritis and some "aging" issues so would like a home with few stairs.

Rudolph

Gender: 

Male

10 years

Good with:

A loving forever home with a physical fence and another dog

Handsome gent!

Rudolph is one laid back boy. He loves hanging with the resident dog, loves his toys, loves zoomies around the yard and going on walks. He is very active and lively, but also has turned into a home body. His favorite places are the sofa and his bed, where he turns his blanket upside down every morning looking for monsters or forgotten treats. Rudolph is still shy of strangers, but after a couple of meetings he becomes very affectionate. Rudolph needs a kind and patient person who will allow him his space for a few days, but they will then be rewarded with a lovely and loving companion. He responds very well to food and treats. He very rarely barks, even when critters come right up to the fence. He is fascinated by the deer, but just likes to sit and look at them.
