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.

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.

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!

Chase (#160123)

Chase is a 1 year old neutered black male who weighs 72 pounds and is good with dogs. He is unknown with cats and approved for kids ages 10 and up. 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 would love to go to a home with another energetic dog he can play with. 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 -Dec 9, 2016:

Chase has been in obedience training and has learned to sit, sit and focus, down, touch, and is doing very well on his recall. He is a smart boy and learns very quickly. He doesn’t know how to play. He likes to chase sticks and balls but once he gets them he loses interest very quickly. He would stay outside all day and night if you would allow it. Chase is totally food driven but also responds well to affection. He's still working on crate time and he would prefer not to be crated but will eventually settle down in there. Chase will do best with another big dog who can play with him at his level. Last week he spent time with a Great Pyrenees (165 lbs.) who was very calm and big enough that Chase could not bossy him around. They played well together after the GP set the boundaries. Chase benefits from that playtime with another dog. Chase is making very good progress but still has many things to master. He is entering the learning stage where he is thinking about his actions and is beginning to make appropriate decisions. He likes being a good dog. He will need to continue with his training in his new home.

Chavvah (#160830)

Chavvah is an 8 yr old spayed chocolate female.  She weighs 52 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Chavvah is approved for ages 7 and up.  Chavva, one of a dozen seniors that we have, will turn 9 on 1/27 and it is her wish to have a new family by then.  She was a favorite at the vet's and it took us less than 24 hours to realize why: this former puppy machine is sweet, joyful and an easy keeper. There were no accidents in her first day, which is super for a dog who has spent her life outside.  She has checked out just about every toy and bone in the dog apartment, which she shares with 2 elderly distinguished gentlemen.  She play bows to them and tries to engage them, but so far, she has only been allowed to run alongside one of them while he chases HIS ball.  Chavva did steal the ball once but after she got the furrowed brow and 2 grunts, she didn't touch it again.

Watch Dozer swim. 

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.

Update from Dozer’s Foster Family - Oct 17, 2016: Dozer loves these fall days. He loves hanging in the backyard. 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. Loves going for a walk even jumping for joy when the leash comes out. He's ready to find his forever family - is it you?!

Update from Dozer’s Foster Family - Oct 31, 2016: Dozer is doing very well. He has a lot of energy for a 10 year old! He is a happy boy and wants to play, and give kisses. He loves his stuffed animals too! He walks really well on the leash and doesn't pull, and he has the most beautiful eyes! 
 
Update from Dozer’s Foster Family - Nov 14, 2016: Dozer continues to settle into his foster home nicely. He's looking for an active and playful family, because this 10 year old refuses to let age slow him down! Dozer has been loving his long walks in the neighborhood. He's also a bit fan of Peanut Butter Kongs, snoozes on his dog bed and destuffing toys. Typical Labby!!

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.

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. 

Commands: sit, down, give paw, get toy. Good with other dogs!

Update from Gwen's foster mom - Jan 21, 2017: Gwen is such a sweet and smart little girl! She definitely has energy but can settle down too, and enjoys a good snuggle. She is very good with the rest of the pack, and barely noticed them when introduced. She's a complete people dog. She loves her humans and wants to be with you. She's a Velcro girl,and would love to be your constant companion. She's not sure really how to play with other dogs, but will follow them around the yard.

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 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.

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 -  Nov 7, 2016: HELEN is the sweetest chocolate shadow. She has perfect house manners, loves the car, walks,all humans and her squeaky babies. Helen doesn't see very well from untreated diabetes and needs insulin shots twice a day. She's not a fan of dogs that get in her face, but loves her humans. She walks well on an Easy Walk harness, and is approved for townhome living. 

Update from Helen's Foster Family - Nov 18, 2016: 6 year old HELEN wants to know if she can be your chocolate shadow. Helen loves all people, car rides, belly rubs, her squeaky babies, playing fetch, and has the softest ears. She has limited eyesight, needs two insulin shots for her diabetes and would like to be the only dog in the family. Helen has perfect house manners and will shower you with love! 

Update from Helen's Foster Family - Dec 31, 2016: Helen recently spent the holidays in her vacation foster home while her foster mom was away. Her vacation fosters said she was such a good girl in their home and giving insulin wasn't a problem. Helen even jumped in the mail truck wanting a ride. Helen is a super sweet chocolate shadow looking for her forever home as an only dog. 

Update from Helen's Foster Family - Jan 16, 2016: Helen continues to be doing well in her foster home. Her fosters describe her as perfect in the house and a low maintenance girl.

Hunter finds himself in need of a new forever home through no fault of his own.  He is an older gentleman and needs a home with limited steps as he has a week back end. He's very sweet and friendly.

Update from Hunter's Foster Family -  Dec 16, 2016: Hunter #7 finds himself in need of a new forever home through no fault of his own. Hunter is good with other dogs and previously lived with another dog, so he'll need a doggie friend in his new family. He is an older gentleman and needs a home or area in a home with limited steps as he has a weak back end. No cat history so cats are unknown. No kid history so approved for kids 10 and up. 

Update from Hunter's Foster Family -  Jan 16, 2017: Hunter is settling in nicely in his new foster home. He does great with other dogs. He is a laid back and mellow senior gentleman. Hunter is very friendly and sweet. He enjoys cuddling with his foster mom on the couch and gives kisses. Hunter would do best in a home with limited steps as he has difficulty climbing up and down stairs because of a weak rear end, which is to be expected of a senior dog. Hunter is very food motivated.

Jingle (#160811)

Jingle is an 18 month old neutered black male who weighs in at 55 pounds and is good with kids ages 8 and up. He is good with dogs and unknown with cats.  Jingle must go to a rural or suburban single family, detached home. He is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. 

Update from Jingle's foster family - Jan 10, 2017:

Jingle has been doing great since arrival at his foster home. We have slowly introduced him to 2 Labs, 1 Walker hound and a Jack Russell and he has made friends with all of them. He loves to play tug of war with other dogs and chew up stuffed toys. He should NOT be crated because it makes him very anxious and he will bark and try to get out so he can be with you - but no worries he doesn't need crated because he is a very good boy free in the house alone with other dogs as long as you don't let the garbage can within his reach- he loves coffee grounds! He is a loving and attentive boy who will fall asleep at your feet or in your lap if you invite him onto the couch with you. He is not a big fan of staying outside to play in snow, he would rather lay on his dog bed by the fireplace. He knows sit, shake and down and walks pretty nicely on a leash. Jingle would probably do best in a home with another dog or with someone who is home a lot. 



Kandi (#160200) 

Kandi is a six year old spayed yellow female who weighs 62 pounds and walks nicely on leash. She is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Kandi would like to be the center of her families universe as a solo dog and will chase cats so 'no cats' for her.  She is approved for ages 10 and up and needs a home with a physical fence.  She is a super gentle and laid back girl who crates well for the work day and has nice manners. Kandi loves people. And she also loves counter surfing, so her forever family will have to join the clean counter club! Although she is a counter surfer, Kandi will not try to take food that humans are trying to eat but will only use the powers of her pleading puppy dog stare to procure food in this situation. Kandi does not try to get on the furniture but enjoys lounging on a comfy dog bed.  

Kandi has age related arthritis and is on glucosamine supplements. She would prefer a home with limited stairs. 

Update from Kandi's foster on Jan 5, 2017: Kandi is a moderate energy beautiful girl. She has great inside manners and does not counter surf or beg. She sleeps beautifully through the night and doesn't get on furniture. Kandi likes to hang out with her people wherever they are in the house. She loves to look out the windows or storm door probably because she loves the outside!! Kandi gets very excited when she realizes that it is time to go outside and will carry her "kitty" or "bear" around in anticipation. Kandi is a good walker and walks best on a harness. She has a strong prey drive and will need to be redirected when she sees a fox, squirrel, or small dog on walks. She has some interest in bones and balls and will play by herself by throwing them in the air. She is very smart and knows "wait," "come," "sit," "down," "paw," "speak" for a treat, "give," "roll over." She has had full house privileges for a few hours and she was fine. Her allergies are being managed by daily allergy medicine and grain free chicken and turkey dog food.

Update from Labby Girl's foster family - Jan 16, 2017: Labby Girl continues to do fabulous in her foster home. While she would prefer to be the only dog in her forever home, she has such wonderful manners. She is house trained and has full run of the house when her foster family is gone for the work day. She doesn't need to be crated. She does stairs just fine. She loves her humans and is happy to cuddle with you on the couch. She sleeps peacefully through the night on a dog bed. She loves meeting new people and will immediately roll over on her back for belly rubs. She's done great losing weight on a weight management food and LOVES going for walks. At walk time she jumps up and down with excitement - it's adorable! She is a dream walking on leash. She doesn't show much interest with the resident felines and would be fine if her forever home has a cat. 

Update from Labby Girl's foster family Dec 12, 2016:

Labby Girl has been such a wonderful foster. She is very affectionate and would love a family of her own who will shower her with lots of belly rubs. She loves to cuddle on the couch while foster mom 
is watching television and any time we approach her to pet her, she’ll immediately lie down and roll over on her back for belly rubs. She walks great on leash and really enjoys her walks. During the day while foster mom is working from home, she cuddles up on one of the dog beds and naps. She’s house trained and has full run of the house when the fosters go out. She will sit for treats and takes them ever so gently. If you’re looking for an affectionate girl who will reward you with unconditional love, look no further than Labby Girl.

Moose is a perfect house guest. He is very sweet and laid back and just wants to be snuggled. This morning we had my parents come over for a visit and he was a wonderful and respectful host! We decided to go to an outdoor cafe for brunch and brought Moose along for the adventure. Needless to say... he behaved perfectly.

Sonny came to Lab Rescue because his owner’s health issues limited her ability to care for him.  As a result he was in pretty rough shape himself but he is now on the road to recovery.  
 
Sonny is a happy dog who likes to be with you.  He walks nicely on a leash and enjoys car rides.  House and crate trained.  He likes to sleep in his crate with the door open.  Has had the run of the house and knows how to use a dog door.  Enjoys getting his ears, head and base of his tail scratched.  Does not climb on furniture but has been known to do a little counter surfing if the opportunity presents itself.

He is a happy dog who sings when you get home keeping his beat with his tail, He likes to carry something in his mouth, be it toy, sock, shoe or other treasure he finds. He has a gentle lean, is respectful with little kids, and loves to snuggle, falling to sleep with a big sigh and quiet snore.

He loves riding in the car and going to the bark park and playing with other dogs. He has several friends there who he chases and wrestles with. Walks nicely on a loose leash. He looks like a new dog compared to what he looked like when he came into Lab Rescue. His allergy medication are working as his skin isn’t inflamed, he isn’t scratching and his coat is filling in nicely.  He is looking for a home with a family that has; a fence, will give him lots of love, attention and exercise. Another dog would be a plus.

Sunshine was seized by Animal Control due to neglect.  When she arrived at Lab Rescue she had a huge mass on her left shoulder that had ruptured and was infected.  She had surgery to have it removed.  Now that she has recovered, she will undergo hip surgery.  Her ideal family will have a home with limited steps or the ability to limit stairs during her recovery period.

 

Sunshine is a very mild-mannered girl with a sweet disposition.  She likes to hang out on her bed or lay at your feet and get some TLC.  She is not a fan of the crate but probably doesn’t need it as she hasn’t touched anything in the house.  Sunshine is housetrained and sleeps through the night.

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 Jan 9, 2017: Woodstock's resolution is to get adopted in 2017. He's not asking for much: another playful dog, a female only household, a yard with a physical fence, and a patient and loving family who will continue helping him come out of his shell. Woodstock will develop a strong bond with his family and his canine siblings. He is a shy kid who wasn't socialized when he was young, so he continues to discover the world around him. Right now we're working on going for short car rides every day so that eventually we can go hiking and enjoy it. This is a very loving dog. Very loving. He's so sweet and gentle and I love him and the daily moments when he can act like a balanced dog and not worry about startling noises, or maybe someone hurting him. He always does zoomies at night around the living room. And then he turns in for the night. He responds when the senior canine play bows to him and for a few minutes everything is just perfect. Woodstock also knows the commands, sit, shake, down. He's very smart and beautiful! 
 
 Update from Woodstock's foster on Dec 26, 2016: Woodstock is still wishing for a forever family. He would love the opportunity to play with young and energetic dogs. Woodstock is housetrained and crate trained. When it's time to be quiet, he will sleep on a dog bed or the couch and wait until it's time to play again. He loves food and he is much more sure of his surroundings. In the right family, he will be a great addition.
