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.

Abby is a 6 yr. old yellow spayed female and Mattie is a 6 yr. old black spayed female.  Abby weighs 83 lbs and Mattie weighs 66 lbs.  They are up to date on vaccinations.  Abby is heartworm negative and Mattie is heartworm positive.  Lab Rescue will pay for treatment at one of our vets.  They are unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.  Abby & Mattie are great dogs. They like to be with you, get petted and have attention which they haven't had a lot of lately. They both will go chase a ball or toy but Abby normally brings it back. They love to play in a kiddy pool. They like to ride though Mattie keeps asking are we there yet. They were outside dogs since they were about a year old and quickly decided living inside is much better. They would like a home where they can stretch out on dog beds and get plenty of loving. They need a yard with a physical fence as Abby like to go exploring and if she goes Mattie will go with her to lead her astray.

They are very excited to meet new people and dogs but quickly settle down. They love going to the dog park. They seem to know the commands: sit, down, roll over, stay, come, shake, and " go to sleep" means either go to sleep in crates or dog beds.

Update from Blacky’s Foster Family -  Sep 20, 2016: Blacky is a sweet and gentle soul looking for a family where he can relax and be loved. He's been great in his foster home with two other dogs. He went for a weekend getaway to another foster home with a cat and he did very well with the cat and resident dog. Blacky has a good appetite and enjoys short periods out in the yard. We don't have any kid history so he's approved for kids 10 and up. 

Update from Blacky’s Foster Family -  Oct 2, 2016: Blacky is doing great in his foster home. He needs help going up and down a few steps, so he will do best in a home with limited steps. On the other hand, he enjoys walks, sleeping, and resting with the dogs on the first floor. They all go out together, Blacky tends to stay out longer. He really likes to look out the front door. I take him for rides, and he's a great front seat dog. He had a great time over the weekend at the other foster home and also enjoyed the company of the resident dog. This boy is a super house guest. 

Update from Blacky’s Foster Family -  Oct 12, 2016: Blacky is loving every day and can't wait to find a home of his very own. He's got great house manners, and is a very sweet boy. He still needs a little help on steps, but enjoys just chilling and hanging out and watching out the windows. He is looking forward to meeting new friends, and hopefully his forever family at the next adoption event! 
Update from Blacky’s Foster Family -  Nov 8, 2016: Blacky is spending sometime with us, and he is just precious. This little old man fits right in with the two resident senior dogs and is getting along great with young foster Woodstock and resident cat. He needs to go out often during the day, and he can't handle slippery tile floors, so runners must be used. He has a hearty appetite and slept through the night. Blacky still has a lot of love to offer, and as tempting as he is, we want him to find a forever family so someone else can experience all this sweetness. I love that he trots along in the yard!

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.

Chase is a bouncy, friendly and energetic pup looking for a family that will give him the exercise and training a young guy needs. Chase is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. 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 Chase’s Foster Family - Oct 14, 2016: Chase is doing good, and has calmed down some, probably from being in the kennel. He loves to play, play, play. He and female resident dog play chase in the backyard and tug in the house. He gets a little rough sometimes but responds well when she lets him know she's had enough. He knows a few commands but will benefit from continued obedience training. He likes to hang with you sometimes but then other times he will be content laying by himself. He loves being in the backyard and likes to stay out and explore. I think he would like the water, he has gotten his front end in the pond but was caught before he could take a plunge. This boy has lots of energy and needs a family who will give him the exercise opportunities that he needs.

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 Comet and Star's foster family - September 27, 2016 - "Shooting Star" is sweet and loving and literally flies through the air like a shooting star to catch her squeaky ball. "Cuddly Comet" also loves to fetch, but really enjoys laying in your lap for an ear massage. If she is pleased, she will reward you with a kiss on the cheek. The girls are house trained, good in the car, and improving every day on leash walks. 

Update from Comet and Star’s Foster Family - Oct 7, 2016: Top 5 reasons 2 are better than one: 
5. They always have a friend so they’re never lonely and you don’t feel guilty when you have a busy day. 
4. They entertain each other in the yard, so you don’t have to. Tired pups=happy humans. 
3. Double duty guard dog security. 
2. Twice as many kisses. 
1. Double the irresistible cuteness!!! 

Update from Comet and Star’s Foster Family - Oct 22, 2016: Comet and Star are gorgeous, sweet, playful, and very affectionate. All they really need are some squeaky balls, belly rubs, and lots of love. They are very playful and gentle with the 7 and 9 yo kids in their foster home and walk well on their EZ walk harnesses.

Dozer is a black, neutered male who weighs 79 pounds. He's ten years old and is current on vaccines and is heartworm negative. Dozer is unknown with cats, good with dogs and approved for ages 10 and up. He is a handsome Lab who is active and healthy. And he loves people! He walks great on leash, knows many commands, and likes car rides; however, he needs to be restrained in the car because he likes to drive. This big guy has not had lots of training, so he is looking for that with his new family and is looking for a single family home in the suburbs or a rural area with a solid six foot fence. No invisible fences for this guy and he cannot be taken off leash in open spaces. Dozer needs a patient family who will understand that he has been living outdoors for much of his life, and now as a senior he needs a comfy, loving home with caring humans who will see that he gets the training, love and comfort he requires.

Dozer continues to work on his manners, now learning to wait till he is told he can eat. He believes he is a lap dog and will crawl in to your lap.

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.

Update from Floyd & Harvey's foster family Aug 13, 2016:

Happy Harvey and Five-o-Clock-Shadow Floyd (my newest nickname for him) have been enjoying themselves with toys or laying out in the sun. They are so easy--and eager--to please! These boys demand so little, and are ready for their forever family! 

Aug 3, 2016: Harvey and Floyd took a walk with their fosters yesterday. Harvey walks ok and needs some correction, but he does not try to run or act wild. He wants to walk ahead a little but he didn't seem to be pulling. Floyd is calm and heels on his own. Floyd has a bit of a fear of thunderstorms and hides until they are over. He prefers dark corners in the basement where is quieter. Harvey loves chasing a ball and he sometimes tries to get Floyd to play. They will play a little bit. The boys are really are so well behaved and you can easily tell that really love one another. They wait for each other in the yard and go in and outside together. They are very low maintenance, lovable pups. 

Update from Floyd and Harvey's Foster Family - Sept 18, 2016: They are a low-maintenance bonded pair who get along with the two resident canines. They love lounging, playing inside and outside, and getting belly and butt rubs.

Update from Floyd and Harvey’s Foster Family -  Nov 7, 2016: Floyd and Harvey are a low-maintenance bonded pair with great house manners. 

FLOYD, a 51-lb, 6-year-old neutered male mixed breed, is calm and a tad shy, which means he lets you take the lead. He doesn’t walk in front of you indoors or outdoors. He knows how to get comfy! He loves rolling up blankets into pillows and loves pieces of sardines with his meals. 

HARVEY, a 58-lb, 7-year-old neutered black lab, is playful and always smiling. He is a social butterfly. He tries to provoke Floyd (or you) to play. But he does know when to lay down and relax. He loves begging for belly rubs and to retrieve. He will come over to you, throw himself down and roll onto his back. He needs a harness for walks.

He is a perfect boy to plug into an active family with kids five and up. At the kennel right now he is enjoying frolicking in the kiddie pool where he will plop down and roll around. Silly Gunner! He is also looking for a family that will protect him during thunderstorms so he doesn't have to hide out in the shower. 

Update from Gunner's foster on Dec 4, 2016: Gunner is settling in to his foster home. He loves riding in the car, and did very well! He's full of energy and really enjoys long walks. He walks fairly well on his leash and didn't mind all the neighborhood dogs barking at him from their yards. He also hasn't paid any attention to the resident cat....and she marched right up to his face to introduce herself! He's very affectionate--there is no shortage of kisses.

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.

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.

She is not afraid of storms or fireworks but, because of her limited eyesight not is not a fan of barking dogs who charge her. Helen's perfect home has someone home more often than not and a family who can commit to a schedule for insulting injections twice a day. 

Update from Helen’s Foster Family -  Sept 8, 2016: Helen continues to thrive in her foster home. She loves the car, spending time with people, going on walks, playing with squeaky toys, and shadowing her foster Mom!

She is approved for town homes. Helen has gained the 20 pounds she needed to gain and her diabetes is under control. Now all she needs is her own family. 

Update from Helen’s Foster Family -  Nov 7, 2016: HELEN is the sweetest chocolate shadow. She has perfect house manners, loves the car, walks,all humans and her squeaky babies.

Magoo (#160726)

Mr. Magoo is a black, neutered 3 year old boy who weighs 69 pounds. Yes, he is blind, but he gets around just fine and would prefer it if no one makes a big deal about it. He is current on vaccines but is heartworm positive. Lab Rescue will take care of his treatment at one of our approved vets. He is quite a love bug with his people and good with other dogs.

Update from Mr. Magoo's foster family on Nov 13, 2016:  Mr Magoo is handsome, affectionate and sweet. He appears to be almost completely blind but quickly learns the basic layout of his surroundings. He also is not the least bit perturbed by encountering immovable objects. That just means shake it off and try a different angle. He often seems to sense or be able to see enough shapes to know when he's approaching an object. After getting a decent walk today with the resident dogs, he has settled nicely and rested under his foster mom's desk.

Midnight (#160596)

Midnight is a 6 year old neutered black male. He's also a tripod (missing his rear left leg) but he doesn't let it slow him down. He is not good with cats, but Midnight is good with dogs and approved for ages 10 and up. He gets nervous around small children. He is current on vaccines, heartworm negative and weighs 58 pounds. He is house trained and knows the commands sit, come, and kisses. Because Midnight is a tripod, his ability to do steps is limited. He is currently fostered in a townhome and is approved to be adopted to one, but would likely stay mostly on the main level. 

See the cuteness in action at a recent adoption event.

Update from Midnight's foster family - Nov 14, 2016: Midnight is so easy. He loves walks, naps, his canine foster brother Shadow and stuffed LambChop (we are now on #2) in this order, I think. He has the run of the house and is not crated and is perfect at meal time patiently sitting or lying quietly and takes treats very gently. He has ventured upstairs a few times but prefers staying on the main level with the resident lab who is also a tri-pod. Midnight is good on a leash, but does get VERY excited when he sees a squirrel, so an easy walk harness is best for now. He loves his pack so a family that is home a lot or takes him along on their adventures and/or has another dog(s) would be ideal. 
 
 Update from Midnight’s Foster Family - Sep 15, 2016: Midnight is a very nice boy. He is a tripod, but he gets along just fine. He had an injury when he was younger and had to have his rear left leg amputated. Midnight is house trained and is used to free reign of the house. He knows the commands: sit, come, and kisses. Midnight enjoys having his ears scratched and he loves attention from his humans. He loves to explore outside and may enjoy a house with a yard. He is good with the dogs that he meets while on walks. Midnight should go to a home with no cats. Midnight is nervous around small kids and is approved for kids 10 and up.

Update from Pokie's foster on Oct 7, 2016: While he may be partially blind, Pokie has no problem getting around. He loves to play and is OBSESSED with his "babies".

Update from Pokie's foster family Jul 24, 2016:  Pokie is such a sweet boy. He is very friendly and loves to be with people. He has been doing well navigating his foster home and will do steps when his foster mom says "step." His foster mom reports that it is very easy to give him his insulin.

He loves leisurely walks around the yard. Rebel's favorite thing to do when he sees his people after a long work day is to simply walk over and nuzzle his head into their lap as if to say "hold me, I've missed you" while he happily wags his tail.

Update from Rebel's foster on Oct 28, 2016: Rebel is a sweet, handsome, wonderful boy. He is a super snuggler who loves being around his people.

Rondu is a sweet older gentleman who has a wicked lab lean.  He’s a bit creaky in his back legs so lots of stairs may be a challenge for him.  He is fine with other dogs, but would prefer if they respect his age. 

Update from Rondu's foster on Nov 28, 2016: Rondu's foster mom sent us an update in the form of a poem!

Rondu is a sweet older man and finding a forever family is his plan. 
Rondu enjoys taking naps...anywhere. 
Rondu will nap on his bed or with your knee under his head. 
He will nap standing on all fours. He'll nap in the entry way of doors. 
He will nap in the sun or after playing and having fun. 
While he naps he will let out moans and contented little groans. 
Rondu's manners are good in the house. For the most part he is as quiet as a mouse.

Sadie (#160331) 

Sadie is a 5 year old spayed black female who weighs 62 pounds. She is also a tripod. Sadie is current on vaccines and is heartworm negative. She is good with dogs and approved for ages 10 and up. This sweet little girl is a perfect companion for anyone who likes a labbie who is house broken, good on leash, and good with cats. Short staircases will be best Sadie since she only has three legs. Sadie would like a forever home with humans who enjoy giving belly rubs and ear scratches.   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 male buddy could be a bonus.

Sage (#160684) 

 
Sage is a 2 year old spayed yellow female who weighs 58 lbs.  She is current with her shots and is heartworm negative.  Sage is good with dogs; unknown with cats; and approved for kids 10 and up. Because Sage has always lived with other dogs, her family must be able to provide her with a canine companion.  She also needs a fenced yard, but is approved for single family houses and townhomes.
 
Sage is a sweet, active loving pup.  Once she gets to know you, which only takes a few minutes, she is very friendly.   Enjoys getting petted and getting belly rubs.  She likes to retrieve and generally brings it back.  Sage will have a training addendum but already knows the commands sit and come.  She walks best with an easy walk harness. 

Update from Sage's foster on Dec 4, 2016: Sage has been an angel. She does great in the crate - she runs right in, hasn't had any accidents in the house, and does great on the leash even with no harness. She is a Velcro dog and does not leave her foster's side and seems to warm up to men quicker than then women, but snuggles with her foster mom too. She would be fine to go to a home in a less rural area (we are in a townhouse). She walked alone today and she still did great and walked right beside her foster, not scared at all. She hangs out with the resident dog a little but really just wants undivided attention. Did fine in the crate for a longer day. She loves long walks and gets very excited for a walk when the leash comes out. 

Watch Sage! 

Update from Sage's foster on Nov 9, 2016:   Sage loves people and she's a smoocher! She cozies up to you and loves being petted and licking your face. She gets so excited to go for her morning walk, and she's super easy to walk without a harness. She loves being with her humans. Sage doesn't counter surf and gets along well with the resident lab. Her favorite toys are stuffed animals, and she shares toys nicely with her foster sibling. She eats her meals in her crate and is learning that it's a good place that she can hang out. This sweet and beautiful girl is going to make a fantastic family member!

Sam (#160743)

Update from Sam's foster on Dec 8, 2016: Sam has completely relaxed in his foster home and now is a lover of being petted and getting ear scratches and everything else. He does not get on the furniture but loves his dog bed and hanging out there with a chew toy nearby. He did not enjoy his recent bath time but now his coat is so shiny--he looks and smells great. He is a very handsome boy. Sam would be a wonderful addition to any home as he is so gentle and relaxed.
 
Update from Sam's foster on Nov 28, 2016: Sam arrived and is taking it slow in his new foster home, getting used to the whole indoor dog thing. He spent a good deal of time outside after he arrived. We left the door open and he came in and out of the back yard, stopping to sniff us on his trips inside and taking little treats very gently before heading out again. He capped off his evening by picking up one of the dog dishes and running zoomies with it out in the yard. He's super sweet but still shy of people. He is cautious around people and doesn't like too much petting right now, although he finally settled down on the floor with foster dad and received his pets very nicely. He and the resident labs are getting along famously and tomorrow we are going to see if he likes stuffed kongs. He was not a fan of peanut butter tonight so he will get yogurt and wet dog food in his kong tomorrow. He is a gorgeous dog with a big head and fluffy coat.

Update from Sheila's foster on Nov 28, 2016: Sheila is doing well after a few days of settling in. She knows some commands and listens pretty well. She got in the fish pond and had a blast in the water, so she might enjoy swimming in the future. She is a velcro Lab who wants to be next to you. She loves ear scratches and belly rubs and will put her paw on you for more. She doesn't seem interested in toys or fetching. She is okay when left alone, but she will go in the crate if needed.

Snowy was surrendered to Animal Control after being hit by a car.  She had a broken pelvis and hip but no surgery was done because her injuries had already started to heal on their own by the time she arrive at Lab Rescue.  She has been doing crate rest and slow walks first with the help of a sling and then on her own.  Snowy walks with a slight limp (and may always) but doesn’t let it slow her down.  She needs to go to a family who will keep her off slippery floors.  
 
Snowy is an incredibly sweet girl who will make a fantastic family member.  She is a champ in the crate.  Walks best with an easy walk harness.

Update from Snowy's foster on Dec 2, 2016: Snowy has been such a good girl! Her fur is so soft, and she loves to nuzzle you. Foster mom checked her skills earlier this week and learned that this cutie pie knows sit, down, and shake paw. She likes squeaking her toys, but doesn't seem to want to destroy them. She is super curious about the cows in the field and all their mooing, and was less than impressed with the hot air balloon landing, but all in all is a stellar, sweet and quiet house guest! 

Update from Snowy's foster on Nov 30, 2016: After spending a month recovering at the vet, Snowy has been a fantastic house guest since arriving at her foster home. She was a bit sad the first day that she was stuck in the crate and couldn't play with her new dog friends that she sniffed and saw, but a peanut butter stuffed bone made life all better and she settled in quietly. She pulls on leash and will walk best with an Easy Walk harness. She doesn't get to play with the resident dogs, but has been out on leash with the oldest, blind resident dog (who doesn't bump into her or try to play) and happily sniffs her and wags her tail. She walks with a slight limp (and may always), but doesn't let it slow her down. She's a champ in the crate - she'll bark when the resident dogs get riled up, but mostly she just chills and chews on a bone or naps. Foster's mom is in town and home during the day and bustling around the house and she has nothing but good reports about this girl. Snowy is incredibly sweet and will make a fantastic family member.

Sully #2 (160787)

 
Sully is a 2 year old neutered chocolate male.  He weighs 52 lbs and should probably gain another 8 lbs.  Sully is current with his shots and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs; and approved for kids 10 and up.  A little too interested in cats - so no cats for this cutey.  Sully is approved for all environments (rural, suburban, urban) and all dwellings (single family home, townhouses and apartments).  He can clear a 4’ fence so if his family wants him to have the run of the yard, they will need a 6’ fence.  
 
Sully loves to cuddle on the couch and adores car rides.  Walks well on an easy walk harness.  He has been well behaved in the house with 2 30 minute walks a day and some ball time in the yard.



Theo (#160311)

 
Theo is a 7 year old neutered chocolate male who weighs 73 lbs. He was treated by Lab Rescue for mast cell tumors and heartworm and now has a clean bill of health.  Theo is unknown with cats and is approved for kids 10 and up.  While Theo is great with other dogs, living with them brings out his marking tendencies so he would probably be best in a 1 dog household with plenty of playdates or doggy day care. With the right family to provide sufficient exercise and lots of attention, he could do well in a townhome or more urban settings.
 
This cute boy loves car rides and long walks.  He has the potential to be an excellent running partner.  Theo  is good on the leash and is crate trained and mostly house trained.  

Update from Theo's foster on Nov 18, 2016: Theo has been through the proverbial wringer: after he had mast cells removed, he had to go through heartworm treatment, but he stayed playful, lovable and pretty goofy. He has never met a person or dog that he doesn't like. He has fostered about a dozen other dogs and desperately craves what they now have: a yard to play in, long walks in the woods, someone to throw the ball or jolly bone, and who will cuddle with him afterwards. Like most younger labs, Theo is very forthright: if he gets enough exercise and attention, he is a gem; if not, he will search for something new that catches his interest and/or use his voice to tell you he is bored.

Update from Theo's foster on Oct 29, 2016: THEO is a boy’s boy. At seven, this choco-lab, is a rough and tumble sort of guy. He loves his toys- especially retrieving the ball and playing tug - and will crash at your feet when he wears down. He loves dogs as much as he loves people and has hosted a dozen since he came to us. And why not be joyful now? He has had mast cell tumors removed and had his heartworm treated and he is rarin’ to go out and enjoy life. While on house (ar)rest, he did get a little chunky so he would love a runner or at least an adventuresome sort so he can shed a few pounds. If you have it in your heart to share this guy’s second chapter with him, he's ready for you!

Woodstock (#160453)

Woodstock is a 1 year old neutered black male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.

He enjoys playing with dogs.

Update from Woodstock's foster on Nov 15, 2016: Woodstock is much happier and confident than he was when he first arrived at his fosters. He continues to look for a patient and loving family to give him the time and space that he needs to feel confident. He is a bit unsure of new situations and people, but he will not run and hide in a corner anymore. Woodstock is excellent with the cat, the two resident dogs, and also the resident 10 year old child, but sometimes he's still unsure around the husband. He will do best in a female household. He loves to run around the yard, but when he's inside, he will find a spot next to foster mom while she works. At night, he loves to snuggle on thecouch and melts for belly rubs. Woodstock is still waiting for his perfect family. 
 
Update from Woodstock's foster family on Oct 14, 2016: Woodstock is enjoying a cool and crispy morning and channeling his inner peacefulness. This kid continues to come out of his shell every day. He now enjoys lounging on the couch by himself and doesn't have to be glued to his foster mom at all times. His confidence keeps building up. He is looking for a female only home with a fenced-in yard in a very quiet neighborhood or rural area. His ideal family will also have another playful and energetic dog willing to run around the yard with him. He takes treats very gently, is house trained and sleeps in his crate at night. Good with cats. 
 
Update from Woodstock's foster on Sep 30, 2016: Woodstock loves to run around the yard. He is very comfortable around his foster mom but still hesitant around foster dad, even though he takes treats from him. He will be happiest in a home with females only. He is a sweet boy with a lot of love to offer. He is a puppy at heart and loves socks (to eat! so they need to be put away). This week he learned the "sit" command. Woodstock continues to come out of his shell!
