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: 

July 1, 2016: Archie is just the most handsome, 2 year old hunk of chocolate that you will ever meet. He is great on a leash, will come when called and is working on perfecting his other skills. Archie loves humans, dogs and even cats!! Birds and squirrels are cool too, but only to catch and snack on! He loves his foster family and the resident pack but he's just dying to get a furever family of his own. He's a catch!

Blacky (#160589)

Blacky is a 12 year old black neutered male.  He weighs 65 lbs, is up to date on all vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is approved for ages 10 and up.  He should go to a home with limited steps.  Duke is good with dogs and cats.  Blacky is a sweet and gentle soul looking for that furever family who will shower him with lots of love and attention.



Blake (#160368)

Blake is a two year old neutered black male. He is good with dogs and cats and approved for ages 10 and up. He is a tripod, missing his front right leg, but Blake gets around just fine. Since he was stray we do not know how Blake lost his leg, but the site is well healed and now has fur covering it. He is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. We know that Blake is good with cats because when he was found, a Good Samaritan who initially took him in said he did fine with her cat during the week he stayed with her. He weighs 53 pounds and has to gain a little. Because Blake comes from the country he must go to a detached single family home in the suburbs or a rural area and will do best with limited stairs.

Update from Blake's foster family - Aug 3, 2016:

Blake and his foster brother have been spending time playing in the yard. He visited a pet friendly rehab center for a short visit, and it took foster mom 20 minutes getting down the hall because everyone wanted to meet him! Maybe with a little training, he would make a wonderful therapy dog!! Blake doesn't like to be alone, so the company of another dog or human during the day will be best for him. In general, he is doing wonderfully!

Bowman (#160583)

Bowman is a 4 year old black neutered male.  He weighs 55 lbs and is up to date on all vaccinations and heartworm negative.  He is approved for ages 10 and up.  Bowman is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  He loves to fetch and play with toys.  He's looking for that forever family that will give him all the attention and love he deserves.

Watch him at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJvcMbbgdNE

Update from Bowman's Foster Family - September 22, 2016 - Bowman has adjusted to his foster home beautifully. He has become a wonderful companion and has discovered the joys of dog play and napping. He also discovered the neighborhood dog park and it's late afternoon play group. Think of the Cheer’s bar “where everyone knows your name” translated into a dog park where everyone greets dogs by name (and no one cares about the owners’ names). After having so much fun the prior two days, yesterday he arrived first and was continually greeted with “Hey, Bowman!” as ten different dogs streamed in over the next 90 minutes. This guy takes cute to new heights with his adorable face, huggable body, and focused attention. Foster Mom sometimes loses sight of him in the house and looks for him only to discover that he is following directly behind never more than a few inches away. If you’re looking for a new love, this guy will steal your heart! 

Update from Bowman's Foster Family - September 14, 2016 - Bowman is a gorgeous 4-year-old boy in a puppy’s body with a perfect propeller tail. He’s a beautiful small Lab weighing 55 wiggly pounds who wants to be your shadow. He loves to be active and will constantly try to engage you in a game of tug-of-war (with toys or blankets or bath towels or any other item that looks fun). He loves to hang out on the couch with you but be warned that he thinks it should involve play and perpetual motion. After spending much of his earlier life in a pen, he’s all about making up for lost time! He’s a great helper in the kitchen where he will peer into the refrigerator with you to help find stuff, take a look on the counter to offer assistance, and watch you cook to ensure you’re doing it right. He rides well in the car but should be restrained or he’ll likely try to help navigate. In his world, you can never get enough walks or play time, so he sleeps with one eye open to ensure he’s ready to go should you look his direction while he’s getting some quiet time. He’s a curious pup who will do best being crated when you’re not home. If you want a Lab who is an excellent snoopervisor and loves spending time with you, BOWMAN’s your boy!

Cara (#160452)

Cara is a 1 year old spayed black female. She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative. Cara is good with other dogs and needs to go to a home with another confident dog.  She weighs 94 lbs and needs to lose about 15. Cara needs a home with a fenced yard. She is a beautiful young dog looking for a family to show her the love and affection that she deserves.  She needs a calm home with a patient family while she gets used to a big brave world. In her previous life she was an outdoor dog and not well cared for, so rescue means she has a bright future.

Update from Cara's foster family - Aug 12, 2016:

Cara arrived at her foster home yesterday and is settling in. She loves all of the resident dogs, and wags her tail happily whenever they are near her. She's starting to come around to the resident human, who always seems to have cheese or some other treat in her hand. If she's unsure of something, she'll head to her safe space until she feels brave again. Patience is going to be key to this sweet girl's heart. 

Cara is a big girl, and has started her weight loss plan of less food, and lots of walks. Since she's pretty timid, the walks have been around her foster's fenced yard, and she has pretty perfect leash manners in the yard. 

Update from Cara's foster family - August 26, 2016:

Cara has had a very big week at her foster home. This 14 month old has been learning how cool life outside the shelter and kennel can be, and she is LIVING LARGE! This week, she has learned how cool playing with other dogs can be (she's decided the resident 2 year old, 40 lb dog might be small, but she is FUN!), how cool playing with toys can be (seriously...the balls...they roll, she pounces, you'll laugh!) and how cool hanging on the couch can be! She takes treats from my hand (she LOVES food - she may have stolen her foster mom's turkey sandwich earlier this week as a protest to her green bean diet weight loss plan) and is working very hard on her bravery. She may not have had a lot of loving touches in her life, so she's trying really hard to understand that human hands are full of love, and is starting to come around. Yesterday we hung out on the couch and she laid her head on my feet...it's a good step! She's house trained and crates like a dream. Cara is looking for a quiet home with gentle, patient humans, a fenced yard and another playful dog.

He needs a home with a solid fenced in yard, no invisible fences. 

Update from Chase’s Foster Family - Aug 31, 2016: Chase is doing well in his foster home and loves to play with the resident 8 month old dog. He will do best going to a home with another energetic dog who he can play with all day long. That's what he likes to do :) Chase has been left with free roam while fosters were gone for a short period, and he did well. He gets excited when there's commotion at the neighbor's house, so he'll do best in a home in a quiet neighborhood where kids are not running and screaming around in the yard. Chase does well meeting other dogs during walks. Chase has settled down and sleeps through the night. He absolutely needs a lot of exercise and a fenced-in yard where he can run around and play with a buddy. Chase is a beautiful boy with soft ears and a lean body.

Update from Comet & Star's foster family - August 27, 2016:

Need help with your housecleaning? Comet and Star are a bonded pair of gorgeous girls available for adoption and looking for a family to love. They enjoy chasing balls in the yard and then crashing on the couch in your lap. Star is always up for a belly rub and Comet will wrap her paws around you for a hug. Watch Comet cleaning out the Legos from under the couch on Youtube Here ! They are the perfect companions! Kids need a playmate? They are loving and gentle with little people and will play fetch in the yard til the sun goes down! Rough day? Their hugs and snuggles will melt your worries away. This bonded pair have good house manners and walk well on a leash with an EZ Walk harness. They are super sweet and ready to find their forever family. 

Update from Comet and Star's Foster Family - Sep 7, 2016: It’s rare to find these Comet and Star without a squeaky ball in their mouths. Aside from snuggling, fetching balls is their favorite activity. These sweet, snuggly seven-year-old ladies know how to sit and stay, have good house manners, and are getting much better on leash walks using the EZ walk harness. Comet and Stat were fast friends with the resident lab, and are great with young kids. They’re looking for a family to love, preferably with some little humans to play with them in the yard. 

Update from Comet and Star's Foster Family - Sept 19, 2016: When they’re not chasing balls in the backyard, these super sweet girls will smother you with love. Star likes to lay on your lap for belly rubs - looong belly rubs. Don’t even try to stop rubbing or she will tap you with her paw or nudge you gently with her nose. Comet likes to lay next to you with her long front legs on your lap to make sure you know she is there. Don’t even think about working on your laptop, or folding laundry! She will creep closer until she is totally on top of you and has captured 100% of your love and attention. They’re ready to find a happy home!

Update from Doll’s Foster Family - Sept 8, 2016: Doll is a great dog! She has excellent house manners. She loves her crate and will spends time in it with the door open. She'll even take toys in there or treats. She has recently discovered that the couch is a very comfortable place to relax! She is getting along great with the resident cat in her foster home. She plays with toys on occasion but since she is on exercise restriction, her activities have been limited. She knows a lot of tricks, is eager to learn, is very food motivated and has been working on her leash manners. She's very sweet, and of course adorable!

London (#150178)

London is a 6 year old spayed yellow 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 18 and up. She weighs 55 lbs. London needs to go to a quiet neighborhood and to a home with a solid fence. . As she wants a very subdued household with limited visitors and we feel that an adult-only household we be best for her. London has been on quite a journey since she was first rescued and has adapted to life as a loved family member very well.  She's journeyed from very distrustful of people to seeking out their attention.  London loves a comfy sofa to hang out on; she's the ultimate couch potato. She has epicurean tastes and would love to share a steak with her humans. Like many timid dogs, London has learned that life is better when toys are involved and has run the gamut of things you can do with toys from de-stuffing them to chewing to squeaking. London also has some fun times playing with other dogs for short bursts but isn't the life of the dog-party girl. She is wonderful houseguest and very easy to care for; quiet and calm, sleeps through the night, has a gentle mouth when taking treats, is low energy and does perfectly during a human workday. She is crate trained but doesn't need to be crated during the day. Best of all, London will keep you company on the sofa and settle in for a snuggle and petting. Cuddles must include belly rubs. She walks well on a leash and will greet you at the door with a wagging tail. 

 Watch London walk on a leash! 

Update from London's foster family Aug 30, 2016: London is doing GREAT. She is a lot more friendly and comes up to us regularly without any fear. She is great in the house and chews on bones antlers and nylabones. She does like magazines so make sure to put them where she can't get to them. Otherwise she doesn't touch anything that's not hers. She mainly stays on the couch but also likes to lay on the living room rug. She does not need to be crated when we leave and is perfectly trustworthy. She LOVES belly rubs and will stretch out for us to get the best rubs. when you stop she looks at you as if to say why did you stop. Outside she lays in the grass and explores the yard. She and our lab will sometimes play chase around the yard. She has been going for walks in the neighborhood lately and has been doing GREAT as long as it's quiet and not a lot going on.She will come up to us and greet us when we come home and has no fear if a treat is involved. She has come such a long way since being with us and is only been getting better. She needs a fenced in yard, she still has some moments where she backs away from us outside but her tail is wagging when she does. London needs someone with patience to gain her confidence and once she does she has been a low maintenance dog.

He must go to a single family detached home in the suburbs or a rural area. Sweet Luke is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up.

He walks okay on an easy walk harness and seems to be housebroken as he waits to go outside to do his business.  This boy is a little gem who responds to several commands and is waiting to be adored in his forever home. 

Update from Luke's foster family on Aug 30, 2016: Luke is doing great in his foster home. He loves to play and will chase anything outside and brings it back one or twice usually. After that he'll try to engage you in a game of chase. He still eats pretty fast, and is a smart boy. He sleeps through the night on the bed with the resident dog and human, but watch out when your alarm goes off though, because he's ready to go! 

Watch Luke play tug here!

Update from Luke's foster family - Aug 12, 2016:  Luke is doing great at his foster home. He is getting along with the resident dog, and even sleeping curled up next to him. He is fantastic in the crate - will go right in and doesn't make a peep. He sleeps through the night, and is super quiet - his foster dad hasn't heard him bark yet. He's a skinny boy, so he eats a lot, and fast, so he's working on slowing that down. His fur is super soft. He will pop up on the counters to check and see what might be delicious up there, but hops right now again when asked. Luke is a very sweet boy!

Woodstock (#160453)

Woodstock is a 1 year old neutered black male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs and needs to be adopted to a home with another dog to show him the ropes.  He needs a fenced yard to play in.  He's looking for a calm home and a patient family who will let him become the dog he was meant to be. He enjoys playing with dogs.

Update from Woodstock's foster on Aug 31, 2016: In just a little over a week, Woodstock has made great strides. He feels confident enough to accept treats from my hand. He went from looking sideways whenever he was approached to coming when called and rolling over for belly rubs. He is braver and happier every day. Woodstock will go into the crate when you tell him: "Go to bed" and sleeps quietly through the night. He can be startled by sudden movements or loud noises, but for the most part, he's doing great and enjoying being a puppy.  Watch Woodstock come when he's called on YouTube!
 
Update from Woodstock's Foster on August 22, 2016:  Woodstock had a great first day in his foster home. No accidents and slept crated all night without a single peep. The next morning he was feeling well enough to play-bow to the resident 10 year old Lab. He also feels safe around the confident 15 year old female canine. He completely ignored the cat when they met yesterday. While still a little shy about taking treats directly from new people, he eats them as soon as I put them in front of him on the floor. His safe spot is the hallway outside the laundry room and that's where he likes to hang out. He will need a patient family with a playful dog to show him the way. Woodstock has so much potential. Love him!
