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 #2 (#180365)

Abby is a 3-1/2 yr old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 54 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm positive.  Abby will be treated for Heartworm by Lab Rescue, at no cost to the adopter, at one of our heartworm-approved vets.  Applicants are encouraged to speak with the Heartworm Coordinator to learn more about Abby's treatment.  Abby is very loving and seems to understand 'dog language' as well as 'human language'. She does need patience on the leash since she is a social butterfly. She is great with other dogs, but once her playdates end, she looks to her peeps to entertain her. She wants to be with you and wants to do things with you, especially interactive play (read 'fetch', 'chase'). While she was a stray, she now knows in the inside life and has pretty nice manners, other than some minor, very occasional chewing if she doesn't have her own toys to chew and/or doesn't get sufficient exercise.

Abby is good with dogs unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.

Bandit (#180514) & Radar (#180515)

Bandit and Radar are 5 yr old black and yellow neutered males.  Bandit weighs 130 lbs and Radar weighs 100 lbs.  They are up to date on vaccinations and are both heartworm negative.  They are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.  Radar is the leader of the two, and both love all dogs they have ever been around. They have been living in a home with a larger backyard and enjoy their time running around and playing ball. Radar is not one to bring a ball back to you, but he loves the time that he is playing with you, and Bandit will sometimes bring it back.

When it comes to car rides and swimming they are always ready, just don’t forget to bring a towel along for the ride home after they swim. The boys know some commands, and should learn others quickly. They are used to sleeping on dog beds throughout the night, and are house and crate trained. They are used to being alone up to 6 hours a day, so may need a break if work days are longer than that. If you want two outstanding Lab boys added to your family, Radar and Bandit are top candidates to meet.

They are good with cats and approved for ages 6 and up.

Update from Beauty's foster family - Jun 17, 2018: Beauty is making great progress! She loves being with her canine buddies and follows them everywhere.

Update from Beauty's foster family - May 10, 2018: Beauty is most comfortable in her crate and is taking some a medication to help her with her fearfulness. She has a hearty appetite and a particular fondness for cheese! She is a quiet and calm girl.

Boomer #3 (#180503)

Boomer is an 18 month old black neutered male.  He weighs 44 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Boomer is very sweet. At his former home, he was tied out since he was a puppy. So, he is kind of shy in a new environment. Boomer is also very underweight, so he can get very excited about food and treats, especially if another dog is around. Until he gains some weight and confidence, people should go slowly with him with food/treats and not take food away from him when he's eating. People should also go slowly with him around other dogs.

Boomer is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.




Brody #2 (#180352) and Remington (#180353)

 
 
These two neutered boys are a bonded pair who must be adopted together and are approved for humans ages 6 and up. Brody is a chocolate 8 year old who weighs 75 and Remington, aka Remi, is a black 1.5 year old who weighs 84 pounds. These two guys have been together since Remington was a puppy and they share a proclivity for tail wagging and rolling over for belly rubs. They would love a big yard where they could play, with some type of fence to contain these good boys. They must go to a single-family, detached home in rural or suburban area.  These guys are owner give ups who lived with young children and Brody had run of the house while Remi was crated when alone since he is a youngster. Remi is heartworm positive and Lab Rescue will provide Remington's Heartworm treatment, at no cost to the adopter, at one of our designated vets. Brody is heartworm negative but will need to be tested in six months because we do not have a record of him being on preventives.

Buddy (#180021)

Buddy is a 4 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 72 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Buddy is a big, strong, and gorgeous boy. He will need to go to obedience training to learn basic commands. Until he learns to heel, using an Easy Walk harness will help during his walks. Buddy is friendly and good with other dogs and people. We don't have any cat or kid history, so he's approved for kids 10 and up.

Jan 18, 2018: Buddy has had a chance to run around in a fenced yard and burn his energy. We have learned that he knows how to sit and give paw. He has a nice disposition and wags his tail because he's so happy to see you. He is housetrained and waits to be let out of the kennel to do his business outside. Buddy is strong on the leash. He seems a little interested with the cats at the vet's office, so maybe no cats is a good choice.

Easton (#180033)

Easton is a 7 yr old chocolate neutered male.  He weighs 69 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.  Easton is a sweet boy. Easton was great with the 5 dogs he was surrendered to the shelter with.  He's looking for a special family to take him in and love him furever.  More to come on Easton as we get to know him.

Update from Easton's foster family - May 25, 2018: EASTON is looking forward to a long weekend. Actually, every day is a holiday to this easy-going character. He has a stick and a shady spot to chew it, so life is pretty good. He hasn't quite figured out why no one has adopted him yet, but he pretty much just goes with the flow and enjoys life so he'll be ready and waiting when his forever humans find him. 

April 17, 2018: Easton has had a great month. His fur is continuing to improve, and he’s reached a healthy weight. In fact, it’s just possible that he might even have a bit of a round tummy now. He’s now only taking melatonin (over the counter) and getting medicated baths twice a week, which he really enjoys. His coat is still a little patchy, and it may always be sparse in some places, but he’s got enough for a decent combover in most spots and it’s still getting better. He absolutely loves playing with his foster sibling, and they can romp and wrestle until they wear each other out. It’s clear he’d be happiest in a home with another dog who really loves to play. His ball skills are improving, too – sometimes he’ll even bring it back now. Easton has shown a very strong interest in deer who frequently visit just outside the fence, so he needs to have a fenced in yard. He enjoys walks and had a blast this past weekend when he went to a pond and watched frogs. So far he needs a harness for walking but that’s because he’s not had any training. He’s a very attentive guy so would probably learn quickly with some consistent training. Easton is a very affectionate boy and loves everyone he meets. He’s fully house-trained and has never needed crating, though he’ll sometimes sleep in the crate if the door is left open. It’s a mystery to me why he hasn’t been snapped up; he’s a complete love and so easy to care for. 

Feb 4, 2018: Easton is an affable and affectionate 7 year old chocolate boy who is enthusiastic about everything. He loves going for walks and just hearing his name prompts some furious tail wagging. He is learning the basics about being a family pet and will need someone who is willing to work with him. He is fully housebroken, though, so has learned the most important lesson. Easton is currently being treated for demodex and ear infection, which will require some medicated baths and ear care in the near term. Fortunately he is good with taking meds. He is somewhat hand shy but is beginning to understand that a hand can bring a lot of good things – treats, pats, the leash – and will now come over and request attention. He has no leash skills so needs someone who has some patience and a strong arm. He’s still in a cone while his stitches from being neutered heal, but that will come off in about a week and then his medicated baths can begin. Easton doesn’t ask for much; he loves having a soft bed to sleep on and will spend most of his day right there. He is good with the other dogs in the home, though they don’t interact much.

Floyd (#180446) and Harvey (#180445)

Floyd (brown and white) and Harvey (black) are an older (10 and 8 years, respectively), genteel bonded pair of boys who just want to share your home. Their demands are few and the rewards are great. Harvey is pretty much Floyd’s “therapy dog”- he is the more playful, social one to whom Floyd turns to get a pulse on a situation. Harvey likes to run in the yard, but isn’t too keen on walks, and likes to fetch; Floyd is content to let Harvey do the “heavy lifting” and will meander around and just watch him play. Neither is a fan of the water, at least not pools where they can’t feel the bottom. The boys snuggle together in a large bed together at night. While Floyd tolerates car rides, Harvey genuinely enjoys them.

They have great house manners and have rarely been crated in the last two years. They know their basic commands. They would do best in a quieter home with fewer visitors: they aren’t going to be the “belles of the ball” nor are they going to be comfortable going to dog parks. Floyd and Harvey just want to complete your family.

Harvey weighs 58 pounds, is up to date on shots and heartworm negative. Floyd weighs 51 pounds, is up to date on shots and heartworm negative.



Flynn (#180327)

Flynn is a 10 year old neutered black male who weighs 48 pounds and is good with both cats and dogs. He's approved for humans ages 10 and up. This little guy is heartworm negative and current on his vaccines. He is also townhome approved if the home is in the suburbs or a rural area. He does not need a fence. Flynn does need a little extra TLC, as his life prior to Lab Rescue was less than ideal. Read his foster family's description of this dear boy's personality and very manageable special needs. 

Update from Flynn's foster family - Jul 15, 2018: We found out today that this adorable, loving senior beagledor is good on walks, respectful towards horses (although he will clean up any leftover grain) and very respectful, borderline afraid, of the fairer species, cats. He met the barn cat, lounging in a lawn chair, and approached within two feet until she hissed, at which time he looked away and, at first opportunity, walked away. He loves to chase a ball when we roll it for him and after a half dozen times, curl up next to us for scritches and strokes. Ramsey even likes him, which makes him only the second male that Ramsey has not given the "what for" to. Yeah, he's lumpy and wears belly bands inside, but he asks so little and just wants to spend his golden years surrounded by love. We'd love to keep him (since he is just like our beagledors), but Bear has made it clear that fosters are fosters as long as he is in charge. 

Jul 9, 2018: Like joyful dogs? I am one happy camper; I like my naps, putzing around in the yard, playing with a ball or wubba, chewing on a bone or antler, and MEALS. I have even gotten into a few tug games with my fellow foster (sort of a ‘May-December’ relationship) and I like to follow her around to see if she finds anything cool. I love everybody I meet; I haven't been cat tested yet, but I promise to worship them if you want me to. 
I love riding in the car, am great on a leash and stick with you off the leash. Fences are for kids: I don’t have much need for one as long as you are with me. 
After I was picked up as a stray (read: "dumped"), I was passed off by the shelter as being 7 or 8 but the Lab Rescue doc thinks I am closer to 10-12 years young. But I barely have any of that ‘bad joint’ stuff. I am lumpy and bumpy, but they don’t cause me any grief. I have some plumbing problems, so I come with a bunch of belly bands, and sometimes I lay eggs in my sleep, but my FM thanks me for keeping them solid and easy to pick up. 
I would love a home of my own; I know there are dogs who are younger, more dashing, more “labby”, more athletic and more hygienic, but please don’t overlook me because of a few involuntary indiscretions.

Update from Gracie's foster mom - Jun 3, 2018: We are loving watching this girl bloom. Foster Mom shook up her little world this week by adding another foster dog, AND moving her to a different crate and Gracie took it all in stride. She loved having another dog in her world so for her, the more canines, the merrier. This girl finds her silly when she’s outside, and loves snuggling in bed. In the mornings, she dive bombs foster Mom with kisses and silliness, and loves belly rubs. She hasn’t picked out her favorite toy yet, but appreciates trying all of them out. She also loves peanut butter Kongs. 

May 24, 2018: Gracie is such a sweet little nugget. Every day she settles in a little bit more. Yesterday at lunch, she joined the pack for chicken nugget snack and loved it. She waited patiently for her turn, and would gently take the treat from foster mom's hand. She also is working on being brave and coming in the house when asked (though she still wears a long lead outside in case she hesitates, so foster mom can lead her in). Yesterday at lunch and when foster mom got home from work she came in the house following the resident dogs when asked. She loves to stretch her little body ALL the way out on the couch and take naps. She follows the lead of the resident dogs at playtime, and LOVES to run and romp around the yard chasing after toys and balls. This little peanut is doing so well with the little things, and her foster mom is so proud of how far she's come in only a week! 



Henry (#170904) and GirlyGirl (#170903)

Henry and GirlyGirl (GG) are hanging out, making their foster laugh and being good while they wait for their furever family. They were part of 5 dogs that were surrendered after their family lost their home. They didn’t come from the best of situations, but they were loved.

Henry and GG love new people to visit and the attention that comes with meeting new folks. Theyare a bonded pair and need to stay together. They are NOT fond of other dogs and should be the only dogs in the house. They are OK to go for walks, the vet etc. They are goofy and silly and fun with each other (they are brother and sister and have been together all their life). They are super good in their crates but would be fine out of them as well.

Henry and GG are good passengers and do okay on a leash, especially once they are comfortable with their person and surroundings. Approved for ages 10 and up. They paid no mind to the cats at the vet so cats may work.
Henry is a 10 year old black male that weighs 45 pounds. GirlyGirl is a 10 year old black female that weighs 43 lbs.  
These sweet frosted faces would love a quiet retirement home!

Hootie (#170731)

Hootie, also known as Magnum, is a five year old boy who is neutered and weighs 55 pounds. Hootie is approved for homes with humans ages 18 and over. He is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. Hootie would preferably have a fence and must go to a single family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area. Hootie is a pup who will benefit from a quieter home where his humans will help him learn to be his best.

Update from Hootie's foster family - Jul 31, 2018: Magnum aka Hootie is happy to be home from vacay in the mountains. While it's nice to get away, there's no place like home! Especially a forever home! Hootie is 5 years old, up to date on vaccine, neutered and a couch potato! He is working on developing his confidence. He would do best in a quiet home with a family willing to be patient while him. He needs time to adjust to new surroundings 

Jul 10, 2018: Hi! I'm Hootie! I have been waiting a few months before introducing myself. You see I didn't feel great and it took me awhile and it took me awhile to even move off the couch! But I am feeling better now so I am ready to find my forever family. I am 5 years old and am a bit shy. I seek out a family who understands my need to take things slow with introductions to both people and dogs. I enjoy lounging on the couch and getting cookies! I walk well on leash unless of course there is a squirrel I need to catch! I enjoy spending time lounging on the sofa and having my head rubbed. I love cookies and especially hot dogs that I get when I go swimming! I need a family that will be patient with me as I learn how to respond to changes in my environment. Time to adjust to meeting new dogs and people is key with slow introductions in a safe place where I feel not threatened. I have overcome alot in the past few months and am looking for a family that will continue helping me learn appropriate behaviors. Hootie would probably do best with an adult household or one with older kids and not a lot of chaos will also be considered.

Jake #3 (#170730)

Jake is a sweet and loving 3 year old black neutered male. He weighs 55 pounds, is good with dogs, unknown with cats and good with humans ages 10 and up. Before he came to rescue, Jake lived through some tough times and is looking for a bright future. He was found as a stray and has permanent scars around his neck that are deep around his throat area. It appears that he was either tied to a very tight chain for a long time, or had a very tight collar on to have made those scars. It's best to walk him on a harness and he can wear a loose collar. Despite the sadness in his past, Jake is putting that chapter behind him and now he finds happingess playing with other dogs and is discovering the world around him.  And despite the cruelty he suffered, this boy holds no grudges and just wants to cuddle, get pets, and snuggle. Jakes has so much love to offer a forever family. He needs a single-family, detached home with a fenced yard, located in the suburbs or a rural area. Like any young guy, he would benefit from some obedience training to be his best self, but he does already know several commands.

Update from Jake's foster family - July 16, 2018: Jake is doing great and is settling back into old routine at Doggie Day care. Jake is very loving, affectionate and playful. He loves his people and will nudge at them for affection and attention. Once he bonds with his humans he becomes even more affectionate and attached to them. He does well with other dogs. He has a goofy personality and loves to clown around. 




Jenna (#180048)

Wonderful Mamma Dog (Jenna) is patiently waiting in her foster home for her furever family. This affectionate girl wants noting more than a soft bed, belly rubs and maybe to be allowed in your lap from time to time. She is great with other dogs and LOVES the foster's son - she sleeps with him most nights! Mamma is great in the crate, although she does not need it, putting herself to bed at times when she just wants to rest. She loves to go outside and mosey around the yard but is really a couch potato and just wants to hang out with her humans. An easy, perfect addition to any family!

Ranger (#180089) 

 

Ranger is a 5 year old neutered black male who weighs 62 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heartworm negative.  Ranger is good with dogs and approved for kids 10 and up.  No cats for this boy.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.

Ranger's goal in life is to love and be loved by his people. He is incredibly smart and knows sit, down, and shake (although he doesn't like to stay "down" for too long!) He's very affectionate with everyone and will trail you like a shadow anywhere you go. Ranger loves to go for long or short walks and has lots of energy, but he also settles easily and rests when everyone else does. He's excellent on the leash and doesn't pull or drag your around. He's a true retriever and enjoys chasing a tennis ball for as long as someone will throw it for him. He's good with other dogs and enjoys wrestling and playing tug with the resident lab. No cats for Ranger as he is very interested in chasing birds, squirrels and other small animals. Ranger has some food sensitivities and eats a prescription diet, but is doing really well on the new food. He is quite thin and needs to gain about 10 lbs., according to the vet. He has gained seven since he's been with us, so it's only a matter of time and love. He has perfect house manners- no jumping on furniture and no counter surfing for this boy! And he is fully house and crate-trained. Although he does not like to be left behind, he is fine as long as he is crated when no one is around. He'd prefer to have a home with someone around more often than not, but he's been fine with foster mom's work schedule- he's just VERY happy to see people when we get home. Ranger is really hoping to find his forever family very soon.

Sammy is a very handsome, healthy boy looking for a new home.  He has been well loved and cared for.  Sammy is great in the car, always ready for a road trip, but he is also great in the house. When tradesmen came or they had a large number of guests, Sammy would go to his crate on command and stay there until released. He has an iron gut and is very food driven so it wasn’t that difficult for him to learn: come, sit, lay, go in bed(crate), stay. He has been pretty responsive off-leash.  Sammy loves to fetch tennis balls and will fetch just about anything that’s thrown out into the water. 



Smokey #2 (#180296)

Smokey is an 8 year old neutered black male who weighs 50 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heart worm positive.  Lab Rescue will provide Smokey’s heart worm treatment, at no cost to the adopter, at one of our designated vets.  Adopters are encouraged to speak with with Lab Rescue Heartworm Coordinator prior to adoption to learn more about the treatment process.  Smokey is good with dogs; unknown with cats; and approved for kids 10 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes with a fenced yard in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.

 

Smokey is a nice boy who can be a little shy.  Once he knows you, he is your friend and wants to be with you.  He comes from a rural area and his owners were homebodies who kept to themselves, so he just hasn’t been exposed to a lot.  Once he figures out something new, he is fine with it.  He needs a family that will go slow with him and give him lots of love.  Smokey walks best with an easy walk harness.  He may be house and crate trained as he waits to go outside to do his business.  Smokey knows the commands sit and come and is working on down.

Tina #2 (#180245)

Tina is a 2 year old spayed chocolate female who weighs 73 lbs and needs to lose 5.  She is current with her shots and is heart worm negative.  Tina is good with dogs; good with cats; and approved for kids 10 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting. She also needs to go to a female only household as we have discovered she is very uncomfortable around men.

 

Tina is a sweet chocolate beauty who is looking to put her breeding days behind her and become a cherished member of the family.  She’s a high energy girl who can take some time to warm up to new people.  Tina has an atrophied right hind leg with a lot of muscle waste. It appears that when the growth plates weren't fully closed, she had some trauma, the kneecap turned, and the tibia started growing in the wrong direction. Fixing this would require delicate surgery with extensive rehab. Because she appears to be shy and easily startled, Lab Rescue is going to re-evaluate her condition once she is more comfortable in an indoor setting. Her condition does not cause her pain; and she has started on glucosamine supplements. 

Update from Tina's foster - Jun 20, 2018: Tina has been spending time in another foster home while her original foster is on vacation. Her favorite toy is a jolly ball. She is real frisky in the morning and likes to play with the ball in the yard. She has discovered water and likes to play in it. During a recent thunderstorm she seemed nervous with the loud thunder. Overall she is doing better, but like in the first foster home, she is very uncomfortable around the husband, so we're going to look for a home with women only so she can continue to blossom. Surgery for her leg will be scheduled in the next couple of weeks. Recovery will take several weeks of leash walks only, as well as rehab exercises that will be done at home.

Yellow is a curious, playful fella.  He enjoys walks and playdates at the dog park.  Because he is still a youngster, he will have a training addendum; but this smarty already knows sit and paw and is house and crate trained.  Yellow is looking for a family that will give him the attention, exercise and training that will allow him to thrive.
