Our Labs Available for Adoption

The labs listed on this page are always changing. Every day labs are adopted and new labs join us while they wait for their new forever home. If you are interested in adopting one of these labs from Lab Rescue, please fill out our adoption application and send it to us online (or by fax or mail). Lab Rescue of the LRCP asks that you read about the entire adoption process before submitting your application. We often receive questions about why so few labs are approved for young children. You can read about how we make that determination in the adoption process section of the website. Please note that the website is not the most up to date source of information. Some labs may have been adopted before the website shows them as adopted. 

Lab Rescue LRCP rescues and places dogs in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and northeast North Carolina (30 miles east of I-95 and north of the Pamlico Sound). Adopters must travel to Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC, with their family – human and canine – to meet the dog they want to adopt.

If you live outside of the Lab Rescue service area and would like to adopt, please review the list of rescues elsewhere in the country, available at www.thelabradorclub.com, do a  Google search on Lab Rescue and your location, or search on Petfinder.com or Adoptapet.com to find a rescue who places Labs near you.

Archie (#160329)

  Watch adorable, adoptable Archie in a video that shows his playful side!

Archie is a two year old neutered chocolate male who is good with cats and dogs. He's approved for ages 10 and up and must go to a home with another dog. He is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Archie is a playful and energetic guy who needs a solid 6 foot fence in his forever home, which will need to be in a quiet neighborhood. He was a stray and needs to pack on about five more pounds. He currently weighs 54 pounds. Archie feels most secure when he is around people and is looking for a patient and kind forever family to give him the training and love he deserves.

Update from Archie's foster family - Jun 17, 2016:

Archie is keeping steady watch out the window for his forever family to drop by - he's wondering where they are! This handsome boy is full of sweetness and cuddles for his humans, and gets along well with other dogs. While he enjoys their company, we don't think he needs one in his forever home, just humans who will give him love, toys to play with, a yard to run in, and maybe a snuggle or two. He'd love for his humans to be home more than not, because he's had enough "alone time" in his short life already, and wants to be with you. He can be a little shy at first with new people, but settles in quickly and treats and scratches will win him over every time. Don't you want a little chocolate snuggle? Ask about Archie! 




Axel (#160350)

Axel is a 7 year old neutered yellow male who weighs 47 pounds and needs to gain ten pounds. He is good with cats and must go to a home with another dog. He is approved for ages 10 and up. He is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. Axel is good with everyone he meets and is looking forward to getting the love and attention he deserves. This guy is not approved for townhouses or apartments and will do best in a home where he is not left for long hours. He walks well on leash and does not counter surf!

Update from Axel's foster family - Jun 16, 2016:

Axel is doing great! He's settled in really nicely, gets along great with the other dogs, and the cats. He really does enjoy the company of the other dogs, and is always with the crowd. He's not nearly as nervous as he was initially. However Axel is still barking when we leave, but he's not destructive and settles down. He's just looking for company. Axel does walk nicely on a leash, but does not appear to know sit, although "stay" seems to be in there -- We'll see if we can teach him a few more basics. He does jump up a little bit, but doesn't counter surf, even though he makes it pretty clear that he's hungry and I'm not getting his dinner fixed fast enough. All in all, I think he's a real gem, he just needs a little bit of polish!



Blackie (#160203)

Blackie is a 2 year old neutered black male who weighs 57 but should gain a perhaps 7-10 pounds. He is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up.  He thrives on affection and loves to interact with people and dogs. Blackie's also quite a retriever and a lover of tennis balls. Blackie is current on vaccines but is heartworm positive. However, he is not worried because he knows Lab Rescue will pay for his treatment as long as it is done at one of our approved vets.  He pulls a bit on leash but does well with a harness.  Call your adoption coordinator if you want to meet this very good boy.

 See the cuteness for yourself! Watch how nicely this boy takes treats.

Update from Blackie's foster family - Apr 20, 2016:

Blackie is doing so well at sitting & is so much calmer getting a treat. He has been had free run of the house while his foster mom went work and he did great! He happily chases the balls. He has darling puppy energy. He loves belly scratches & doesn't mind if you grab his feet & they are hard to resist because they are so big! He's an excellent snuggler & his foster describes him as easy on a leash when we walk. He loves all the attention - but also loves to sleep next to the resident lab. The resident lab is 8 & sometimes isn't interested in rolling around - Blackie backs off quickly when given the cue & is learning some good dog/dog manners. He seems to learn quickly - his sitting & treat taking are 100% better than when he got here last week - just wants to please. . Blackie needs training and needs to learn not to jump when he gets excited. He loves to be pet and hugged so he's figuring out if he doesn't jump he gets pets. He is such a happy, curious, and loving boy!! Since Blackie has not had much training, he is not approved for first time adopters.

Blockie (#160439)

Blockie is a nearly two year old neutered black male who is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. He weighs 90  pounds. He is good with dogs, but not with cats, and approved for kids ages 10 and up. Blockie is a very big boy who is young and sweet. He's house trained, crate trained, and seems to be partial to other guys. He needs to go to an experienced owner who will enable Blockie to continue his obedience training since he did not get much guidance in the past and can be a little headstrong at times. This handsome guy is good on leash and good in the car.



Brenna (#160346)

Brenna is a year old spayed yellow female who weighs 75 pounds. She is unknown with cats, good with dogs and approved for ages 10 and up. She is heartworm negative and current on vacines. Brenna is a good rider and is good on leash. She was an owner give up and has good house manners but new things can scare her since she has been through a lot of changes. She is shy at first but warms up quickly. Brenna comes from the country and needs to go to a single family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area.

Update from Brenna's foster family - Jun 11, 2016:

Brenna is starting to settle in at her foster home and is getting used to her 5 canine foster siblings. She is around 7 years old and a 75 pound bundle of sweetness. She's a little unsure of everything that has happened in her life. You see, Brenna was abandoned by her family when they moved and she doesn't know why. Was it that she was just too loving because all she wants is attention and acceptance from her people? You can tell Brenna loves to run and play. It appears that she's interested in water because we have to watch her to make sure she doesn't jump into the pool. She's on some restrictions due to just being spayed and having a mammary gland tumor removed. We are waiting on the results from the vet. She eats well and really enjoyed the yogurt, chicken broth and boiled chicken that was put in her dish last night. This was a treat since she's taking her medications with ease and this includes the bitter Tramadol. She does well on leash but sometimes pulls. You can tell Brenna is very intelligent. While she is good in the crate, she will test to make sure you locked the door. She also whines a little when first put in but settles quickly now that she's getting used to the routine. She will need some help in learning that car riding is ok since she's a little nervous about it. 



Buddy (#160072)

Buddy is a 7 year old yellow neutered male who weighs 62 pounds. He is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up. He's current on his vaccines and heartworm negative. Buddy is a friendly boy looking for someone to continue his obedience training and shower him with love. He is good with other dogs, but doesn't like energetic youngsters running into him. He is wonderful on the leash. He loves to go for hikes and long walks and cool off in the water, although he hasn't gone in all the way to swim. Buddy knows several commands and will sit for a treat. He loves to play with toys and needs the sturdy ones, because the stuffed ones don't last very long; about 5 minutes. He will do best in a quiet neighborhood and a quiet household where people aren't coming and going all the time. 



Cindy (#160112)

Cindy is a 9 year old spayed black female who weighs 65 pounds. This sweet girl ended up in rescue when her owner fell on her and they both ended up in the hospital. Cindy broke no bones, was a bit bruised and banged up but she is getting the care she needs to heal. This sweet lady is current on vaccines and is heartworm negative. She is a good rider, easy on the leash, and is both house trained and crate trained. Cindy is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approve for ages 10 and up.

Update from Cindy's foster family - May 20, 2016:

Cindy is enjoying the time in her foster home and with her foster brother! She'll play pounce him on her rickety old legs and he'll do zoomies that screech to a halt right at her feet. When she's feeling extra spry she'll chase him around the yard and he'll run at half speed so she can keep up. She has also grown more confident on stairs and no longer has trouble, even when it's wet outside. We can tell she's getting stronger and feeling better. We even went on a few walks with her! Cindy isn't very good on the leash, but she's so old and slow that she's easy to manage despite all of her zig zagging. We go a little less than a mile, and she is excited and peppy almost the whole way. She only slows down when we have to walk up a big hill to get back home. 

Cindy is really adorable when she asks for pets and scritches. She'll walk up to you and bonk her head into your knee so you can scratch her ears, or she'll turn around and give a big lab lean if she wants rump scritches. When she's lying on a dog bed, she loves belly rubs, and if you stop, she gently puts a paw on your arm to tell you to keep going.

Daisy #3 (#160289)

Daisy is an 11 year old spayed yellow female who is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. This sweet senior who used to do field trials in her younger days is in need of some TLC after a rough few years. She is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up. Daisy weighs 54 pounds but should gain a few. Since coming to Lab Rescue she has perked up considerably thanks to good nutrition and finally getting the veterinary care she needed. She should not be crated, must go to a home with a fenced in yard (no invisible fences) and have people who are not gone for long periods, because this girl loves company. 

Update from Daisy's foster family - Jun 12, 2016:

Daisy is a very sweet, affectionate, peppy little girl who is just dying to be made over and loved on. Although she's had a rough life over the past several years, she has risen above it all...her tail never stops wagging, and she actually seems to be smiling all the time too! She has gained the weight she needed, and her new coat is coming back in nicely- as her skin heals from the mess it's been in for so long. She is REALLY feeling SO much better now! Daisy has incredible spring in her step, and is amazingly agile and energetic for her age....I liken her to the energizer bunny! She gets along very well with our resident lab, and seems to prefer a 4-legged friend who does not pay her much attention....she is not interested in romping and playing with other dogs...she just seems to enjoy a friend to hang out with.

She would probably be OK as an only dog as well. She does not like to be crated, and definitely does not need to be. We have left her home with the resident dog for several hours in the house, and she has never disturbed anything or picked up anything that wasn't a dog toy. However, she would prefer to be in a home where her owners are home more than not. She LOVES to go for walks and does OK on a leash, but is best with an easy walk harness - she will sometimes follow her nose when a good whiff of something comes along, and in those instances she will pull. Daisy rides very well in the car, and she is completely house trained. This sweet girl will make a wonderful, loving companion for anyone.

She is a very sweet girl who loves giving kisses and is just starting to get the hang of toys. She is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. Elsie was a stray and at some point her leg was broken and healed poorly. She currently has no problem walking or running on it though she may experience some lameness with it later in life. Elsie wants a house with a yard to play in and a family who will take her to training. She walks okay on leash and better with a harness. Elsie must go to a detached, single-family home in the suburbs or a rural area.

  Watch this little girl play. 

Update from Elsie's foster family - June 10, 2016:

Elsie is a lovebug and wants to be with her people, even if it's just at their feet in the kitchen. She is goofy and thinks she's a lap dog. She loves to play inside and outside the house and would love a playful canine buddy! She is good in the crate and settles down nicely once she's had some exercise. She is very food-motivated so should train beautifully! She has a wonderful "sit" when you have a treat! Elsie walks well on an Easy-walk harness and enjoys going for walks with her foster family.




Elvis (#160071)

Elvis is a two year old neutered black male who is good with ages 12 and up, as well as cats and dogs. He needs a home with at least a six foot tall fence and he is not suited for townhomes, condos or apartment living. Elvis is a big guy, at 88 pounds, and will do best with an experienced adopter. Elvis already knows tons of commands including, sit, down, share, come, and outside. He is looking for a forever home with folks who will keep him active and help him with his training.



Floyd (#160344) and Harvey (#160345)

Floyd and Harvey are a bonded pair and will be adopted together. Floyd is a 6 year old neutered male mixed breed who weighs 51 pounds and Harvey is a 7 year old neutered black male lab who weighs 58 pounds. Both are current on vaccines and heartworm negative. These two will need a yard with a physical, not invisible, fence. Floyd is a bit shy with people initially but he warms up quickly. He is good on leash, walking right beside his human and knows numerous commands. Harvey knows lots of commands, too, but because he is a social butterfly eager to meet and greet, he will need an easy walk harness for walks. Harvey loves to retrieve. Both are good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up. Both of the guys are fully trustworthy around the house and do not need to be crated.



George (#160334)


 
George is a neutered 8 year old black male who is approved for ages 8 and up and does well with both dogs and cats. George is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. His forever home will need a fenced in yard, not an invisible fence. He is crate trained, house trained, and has very good manners. George knows numerous commands and will sit for his meals until you tell him it's okay to eat. He weighs 74 pounds and is very silly.

Update from George's foster family - Jun 8, 2016:

George continues to do well with the resident dogs, cats, and humans. Please don't let his age fool you. He may be 8, but at times he acts like a puppy. He is a professional counter surfer who is always looking for an opportunity. I'm on to his game now. You must absolutely tell him to sit and stay before you open a door, because he will walk right by you to go out the door.

George is a lot of fun. He enjoys swimming and he loves to explore the yard. He follows his nose into every hidden spot and bush he can find. He gets crated when nobody is home and will bark for about 5 minutes and then settles down. This is a very energetic boy for his age, but he also enjoys sleeping. On the couch. He has not touched any of the dog beds. He either climbs on the couch if it's available, or climbs on top of the human who is on the couch. Sometimes he sleeps on the floor. He will not eat his food until you tell him OK! George is used to having company, either human or canine. He needs to go to a home where he's not left alone all the time, not because he gets upset but because he's so in love with his people and so used to having someone around.



Harpo (#160067)

Harpo is a handsome 62 pound neutered chocolate male. He's about ten years old, and like many a senior this guy prefers limited steps and the chance to sleep in. Harpo takes glucosamine supplements for some arthritis in his back but nothing stops this guy from enjoying walks and play time. He loves toys, food, and hanging with his people. Harpo is unknown with cats, good with dogs, and approved for ages ten and up. He's heartworm negative and current on vaccines. Harpo walks well on leash.

Update from Harpo's foster family - Apr 20, 2016:

Harpo is really enjoying the nice warm weather and loves spending time outside lounging in the sun. He loves to retrieve and knows to drop the toy at your feet when he brings it back to you. He enjoys meeting new people that visit his foster mom and dad and that he meets on his walks. He greets everyone quietly with no barking or jumping. However, he is a bit more demonstrative when he sees deer, foxes or squirrels when they invade his back yard from time to time. He continues to look forward to breakfast and dinner. This is one of the sweetest dogs around. Harpo does better when he wears a belly band in case he has a leaking accident. He's doing well and although he's an older dog, he has a lot to offer and appreciates all the love and caring he receives.

Helen (#160335)

Helen is a 6 year old spayed chocolate female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  She is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up.  She weighs 51 lbs and has considerable weight to gain.  Helen was found, blind and emaciated, walking down the middle of the highway.   Her blindness is caused by diabetes which is now under control; she will need to be on insulin injections and blood glucose monitoring for the rest of her life. In mid- June, Lab Rescue will have surgery performed that will, we hope, restore the sight in one of her eyes.  Helen is learning to love toys and is getting healthier every day.  She's  bundle of love and energy and we can't wait to see what happens once her sight is restored.

Update from Helen's foster family - June 8, 2016:

Helen is such a sweet girl. She continues to feel comfortable in her home and is perfect for her insulin shots and eye drops. She has relaxed so much since she first arrived. She loves to go for walks and walks beautifully with an Easy Walk harness. While in the house, she plays with her squeaky toys or just hangs out next to foster mom. She loves to follow you around. She's working on gaining weight so she can have her cataract surgery.

Jack (#160059)

Jack is a handsome 4 year old neutered black male with a beautiful blocky head. He weighs 82 pounds and he needs to drop a few to be at his healthiest.  He is not afraid of children, but he is not a fan of youthful shenanigans, so he must go to home with folks 18 and up.  He is also nervous around men and should probably go to a home with women only. Jack is good with dogs and cats, though. In fact, for a time he lived with a cat and they took walks together.  If you guessed from looking at this handsome guy that he likes to retrieve, then you would be correct. He enjoys a good game of fetch or just the opportunity to walk around with a shoe in his mouth if need be. (No, he does not chew things! This is a good boy!) Jack needs to go to experienced adopters in a single-family home in the country or suburbs. 

Update from Jack's foster mom - Jun 14, 2016:

Jack has lost a few pounds - down to a lean 79 lbs! He visited with foster mom's adult son last weekend who was home, and had to decide if he liked him or not, so he went from barking at him to kissing him. When it comes to men, he just needs extra time to realize they aren’t going to hurt him. He has turned out to be a good watch dog, and will bark at noises outside or anyone coming into the house that he doesn’t know, but will settle when you tell him it’s okay. He is a little thief, when you aren’t watching and he wants attention, he will take your personal items, like papers, sunglasses, clothes. He will always give them back to you unharmed if a treat is waiting. He has gotten more interested in his bones and still likes to retrieve the ball.


 



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 



Larz (#160160)

 Check out Larz with his wiggle-butt in his walk video

Larz is a 7 year old yellow neutered male.  He came in at 103 pounds and has lost 13, weighing in at 90 pounds most recently! He is getting there with low calorie food and slow exercise.  He is approved for kids 8 and up and is good with both dogs and cats.  He is heartworm positive and Lab Rescue will pay for his treatment if performed at one of our vets.  Larz is a very friendly and sweet boy who enjoyed getting up close with his people during his photo session.  He enjoyed joining the playgroup with the other dogs in the shelter and did fine with a variety of different dogs.  He rides well in the car. Larz is from the country with limited exposure to cities, so placements are limited to single family stand alone suburban and rural homes.

Update from Larz's foster family - May 17, 2016:

Larz is an absolute joy to foster! No muss, no fuss . . . laid back and ready for fun whenever you are. He's becoming more active and getting around much better since losing 13 pounds. His gait has improved and he leaps and twirls more often now, so he seems to be responding well to his supplements. Last night he crawled onto the couch with me for the first time since I began to foster him 6 weeks ago! He promptly did the Labby spin and rested his head on my lap. He's never had problems navigating the hardwood stairs or floors in my home, but furniture and beds were a little too high for him. I guess that's all in the past! He will also step up onto your lab for scratches and hugs, whereas before he could not. He loves riding in the car ~ he can crawl up into the rear seating area, but needs a boost for entry into the rear cargo area. He just smiles, and sniffs out side windows and sniffs up at the open sunroof. Otherwise he just lays down across the entire back seat to enjoy the ride. He's so big I have to use the back seat for Larz only and use the rear cargo area of my SUV for my two pups .. hence, his nickname, LARGE LARZ!!! He's a true cuddlebug of a gentle giant! He has excellent house manners and walks well on leash ~ but beware, he's always on critter patrol during our walks! He will pull if he sees a bunny or a squirrel! Note, he is a true country boy ~ so no cities or areas with lots of street traffic. A quiet cul-de-sac in suburbia or a rural forever home would be ideal. 



Lily #3 (#150506) 

Lily is an 8 year old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 85 pounds and is heartworm negative.  She is approved for kids 10 and up and is good with both Cats and Dogs.  Lily is a sweet and pretty girl who loves being petted and getting attention from humans.  She is very smart and loyal to her people.  Lily has excellent house manners and loves being petted and getting belly rubs.  Lily is looking for a home with a physically fenced yard in a quiet neighborhood without too much activity around.  She sometimes barks at other dogs while on leash, but she has improved greatly.




London (#150178)

London is a 5 year old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 45 pounds, is heartworm negative and is approved for kids 15 and up.  London is a pretty and very gentle girl.  She raised her 10 puppies, who have all found homes, so now it is her turn.  London finds the world to be a scary place, so she is looking for humans who live in a quite neighborhood and have a solid fenced yard.  She would also like her humans to lead a quite lifestyle and would prefer to have a confident and calm companion dog to show her the ropes, but that is negotiable for her.  London enjoys spending time outside walking around or resting under her favorite bush.  She is pretty low energy and is calm and quite in her crate.  London prefers her humans speak to her in a quiet and gentle voice and responds well to gentle encouragement.  She seems to know some words like breakfast and walk.  She has a good appetite, but prefers to eat privately in her crate.  London likes when her humans lay on the floor with her and pet her.

Update from London's foster family - Apr 20, 2016:

London has been doing great. Yesterday she was sunning herself on the deck stayed out there most of the day. She and the resident dog have been chasing each other around the yard and playing in the house. She lays on the floor in the evening and chews on nylabones. She has been coming up to me and letting me pet her even when outside, that's a first for me. Her tail is up wagging when she sees us in the house and hasn't been running away from us.

Major weighs 47 pounds and believes he was made to climb into people's laps. He truly enjoys human companionship and meeting with other dogs, too. Major is a major tail wagger and rides well in the car until he tries to sit in the driver's lap, so he should be crated or harnessed for transport.



Mansion (#160118) 

Mansion, or "Big House" as his foster affectionately calls him, is a two-year-old black neutered male who weighs 82 pounds. This handsome guy is unknown with cats, must go to a home with another dog, and is approved for ages 10 and up. He's current on vaccines and heartworm negative. He is a good boy who likes to be around people and needs someone who is frequently at home. He rides well in the car, has good house manners, and a love of belly rubs. Mansion tried living in an apartment and did not like it, so no apartment living for him. 

Update from Mansion's foster family - Mar 26, 2016:

Mansion is a big goof ball who loves everyone. He loves belly rubs, treats and being close by your side. He has a giant block head and sad eyes and will climb in your lap if you let him. He does not like a crate but has had good house manners while left alone. At 2 years old he is a low-energy companion who would love someone who is home a lot or is able to take him to work where he will sit quietly by your side. He also needs to go home with another dog to keep him company when his human is not within reach. He is a wonderful sweet soul who can't wait to he loved on by his new humans.

She must go to a detached single family home in the suburbs or a rural area.

Update from Midnite's foster family - Jun 8, 2016: Moments by Midnite:
The gang just went outside to do the Neighborhood Barking Watch patrol and I'm stuck in the office doing the paperwork! Come on the 19th! That's the day that I'm allowed to go outside with everyone because I will be done with my heartworm treatment. Foster Mom says I'm doing really well but she knows that I want to play. I'm just not allowed.
FYI: I'm available for adoption. I'm a 4 year old girl that weighs around 50 pounds. I was a stray but I'm learning how to trust some people. I'm house trained and crate trained. I'm getting better on the leash but I don't like doing my business while on it. I get along good with the other dogs here and I've learned meal time is a great thing. I go into my crate and anxiously await its arrival. This is a big improvement brcause I used to wait until everyone left so I could eat. I can be a little pushy about treats but Foster Mom makes me wait my turn. I'm actually walking up to FM for attention and to get loved on. If you think you might want to love me as your own, call your AC to come visit me in Lynchburg.
Love,
Midnite

He is also good in the car and walks okay with a harness. He is good with dogs and approved for ages 10 and up.

Update from Quincy's Foster- June 10, 2016:

Quincy is still looking for his perfect home. He loves his humans, and squeaky plush toys are his favorite. He’s never met a cookie that he didn’t like! If you’re looking for a couch potato that is more interested in your affection than anything else (except aforementioned cookies!), Quincy is your boy! Occasionally he enjoys a short walk, and he likes trips to new places (like the woods and the beach). He rides well in the car, and loves cuddles. He loves his dog beds and soft blankets, and would probably love your couch, too (if that's your thing!).

Update from Sadie's foster family - Jun 8, 2016: (From Matchmaker Monday on the LRCP Facebook group page)

Sadie, a 4 1/2 year old black female, approved for kids 10 and up

Enjoys: swimming, squeakairs and wubbas, "sharkies"

ISO: a quieter household with multiple hands for scratching her little ears and not-so-tiny tummy and offering treats with a quick enough wit to respond to people who ask what happened to her (missing) leg, who will give her the four or five days she needs to get acclimated before expecting kisses. A fun, but respectful, 4 legged buddy could be a bonus.

This little guy is a country boy and would do best adopted to a single family suburban or rural home, preferably in a neighborhood where there aren't a lot of people walking by frequently.  He thinks giving you a lab lean is the best way to get his back and butt scratched.  He isn’t big on retrieving yet, but will investigate a toy if thrown.  Shooter is clever boy who already knows sit, down and come, and is good on lead.  

Update from Shooter's foster family - Apr 6, 2016:

This 7 year old chunk of chocolate love is a sweet and easy boy. Shooter would love to be an only dog.

Update from Toffee's foster family - June 13, 2016:

Toffee said goodbye to her puppies, and is now looking to be pampered. Raising a litter of 10 puppies took a lot out of her. She needs to continue eating hearty food so her coat becomes healthy again. She can be a bit jumpy on new people because she wants to say Hi! and get lots of pets and belly rubs. She loves giving kisses. Everything seems to be new to Toffee. She is not used to a being on a leash, and needs to be walked with a harness. Since she will not go to the bathroom while on the leash, a fenced yard is a must. No invisible fences. She rides well in a car, but needs some encouragement getting in. Toffee is a puppy at heart and will need to go to obedience training. She enjoys de-stuffing stuffed toys and chasing after a tennis ball. She is a very sweet girl.

Update from Trace's foster family -  Jun 19, 2016:

Welcome Trace to the Lab Layover/Retriever Rest Stop! Trace is a four year old boy whose endearing personality makes it hard to correct him- nothing terribly egregious, just wacky kid stuff from being out of ‘stir’ for 24 hours. He definitely has the smarts to learn since he figured out the dog door in one lesson. He is kind of hard to photograph right now since he is enjoying his freedom and the companionship of people; so he’s either running or right up against me. He is sort of interested in toys, but more interested in who is throwing them. He was terrific for the two hour ride to freedom and very well behaved in the vet’s lobby, despite a very busy time of day. Don’t miss out on Trace; as he says, “Ladies Love Country Boys."



Trooper (#160201)

Trooper is a 5 1/2 year old back neutered male.  He weighs 68 pounds and is good with other dogs.  He is approved for kids 10 and up and is heartworm negative.  Trooper is a  lively, energetic and playful boy.  He was shy with people at first, but has warmed up significantly.  Trooper is now loving the attention he's getting in his foster home and likes ear scratches, butt scratches and belly rubs.  He will snuggle up to his people and roll around to make sure they are rubbing the right spot.  Trooper does like to check out whats on the counters, so it's best to not leave out anything that's tempting.  He is house trained and takes care of business outside and does well in his crate at night and during the work day.  Trooper is currently being treated for bronchitis which was left untreated for a long time.  We will try to wean him off the meds gradually and see how he does.  He needs to be walked on a harness only, and not on a collar.  Trooper is from the country so he is looking for a single family stand alone suburban or rural home.



Tucker (#160272)

Tucker is a 4 year old neutered chocolate male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  Tucker is good with other dogs and will chase cats so no cats for this boy.  Tucker is a sweet guy who is looking for a family to show him the ropes. He previously lived in a 10X10 outdoor pen all his life. He deserves a family that will give him the love and attention that he has been lacking for his entire life! He is good with other dogs. He can be a little unsure at first if they come up to his face, because he hasn't had much exposure but does fine after an introduction and did well with the ones he met at the shelter. He's not used to walking on a leash yet, or on slippery surfaces, but he's learning and wants to please.
