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.

Beauty (#180239)

Beauty is a 2-1/2 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 50 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Beauty was brought to the shelter after her foot was caught in a bear trap. She was treated by a vet and her foot has completely healed. Beauty is a sweet but extremely frightened and shy dog. Beauty has shown no signs of aggression but is very shy of humans. She is fantastic with other dogs and MUST GO TO A HOME WITH ANOTHER DOG. Beauty spent time with a local rescuer who has a boarding facility and her own personal dogs. The foster worked with Beauty and said she shows improvement with each day. She really enjoys the company of the foster's dogs. Beauty will eat peanut butter from the foster's hand while crated and the foster can pet her when Beauty walks past.  Beauty is looking for that special family that has a physical fence so she can roam freely and enjoy her new life.

Beauty is unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.

Betty (#180288)

Betty is a beautiful girl with perky ears and a sunny smile that lights up the room! She likes to play with other dogs and is kind and gentle with children. She arrived a little on the thin side but she’s gaining weight and ready for a new life of treats, snuggles, and doggy play dates. Betty has no cat history and will be approved for kids 10 and up. Betty is a 5 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 49 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.

Betty arrived to Lab Rescue last week, and like all the dogs that arrive to one of our vets, she had a physical exam, complete with all her vaccines and preventatives. All was going well with her exam until they found a mass inside her mouth in her jaw. When she was sedated to be spayed, they took out the mass and sent it out for biopsy. Unfortunately, the results of the biopsy were not the best. Betty has been diagnosed with osteosarcoma, with a guarded prognosis.  We don't know exactly how much time she has left, and we don't care either. We just want that time to be the best time of her life. Right now she is doing great, nothing has metastasized to the lungs, and she has a better prognosis because the tumor was in her mouth and not in one of her limbs.

Bogie (#180275)

Bogie is a 1 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 50 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Bogie is a sweet, affectionate and friendly boy. He has only been in a foster for an overnight so we don't have a ton of info on him yet. Bogie is pretty calm outside and good with other dogs. He can be a little mouthy with treats and we are working on that. Bogie can jump really high in the kennel run. He did not try to jump the fence (5ft) at the foster home but was only there overnight. He may do best with a taller fence or leash walks . Bogie is a good rider and pretty good on leash. He was a little vocal in the crate but quieted down at lights out and slept all night. He keeps the indoor part of his run clean and did not have any accidents at the overnight foster.

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

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.

Buddy #3 (#180338)

Buddy is a 2 yr old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 77 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Buddy is a handsome boy who is looking for a running and swimming partner. This super friendly and energetic guy is very affectionate and loves people. Buddy is good with small dogs and should go to a home without cats. Buddy tends to pull on leash and walks best with a gentle leader. Buddy is a strong chewer, so he will need durable toys in his new home. He prefers not to be crated and was given free run of the house in his previous home. Like most young labs, Buddy will need formal training. He will flourish under the love and direction of an active family.

Digby (#170714) 

Digby is a 1 yr old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 68 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Digby is approved for kids 10 and up. 

Digby is a very, very smart, focused dog. He will do what he thinks is a good idea if not given constructive, positive input. He has progressed very well in a lot of areas (manners) and seems to be familiar with life in a house. We have worked hard with Digby on his "containment phobias" and he is doing well in a crate but would probably thrive the best with someone that is around a lot. He loves to play with other dogs and people. He is good on leash when walking. Digby is the kind of guy that would do great if he had a job, like agility, and may do well with a runner or avid walker, not because he is overly energetic but because he does best if he has a reason and purpose in his life. Digby is not the guy for a first time dog owner but would do great with someone with experience that can guide him give him positive reinforcement.

Update from Digby's Foster Family - Feb 22, 2018: Digby is back through no fault of his own. His adopter had a severe allergic reaction. Digby was not crated with his adopter as they worked from home and we are having to "retrain" Digby on the crate because he is not a huge fan but we will get him back in to the habit. Digby really needs an adopter who can give him focus. Maybe a runner or someone who wants to do agility with him would be awesome! He would also love someone who was home more than not to limit his time in the crate. He is such a super sweet guy and loves other dogs. He will make the right someone very happy! 

Update from Digby's Foster Family - Mar 13, 2018: Digby is making great progress at his foster/trainer. We are working hard on his comfort level in a crate but if he had an adopter that was home a lot he would not need the crate much. He is looking for someone to keep him focused and occupied as he has a busy little mind but if he is exercised and stimulated properly, he can also be a couch potato and just chill with his humans, which he loves. He loves going for walks and playing in the yard with his foster buddies See him play on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBUp75yFv9M

Dylan (#180345)

Dylan is a 7-1/2 yr old chocolate neutered male.  He weighs 79 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Chocolate hunk Dylan is large as life and twice as handsome! This gorgeous guy will dazzle you with his big blocky head, stunning smile, hazel eyes, and a gorgeous milk chocolaty coat. But he’s not just good looking – he has the personality to match. Sweet and playful, Dylan enjoys swimming, fetching sticks and balls, and riding in the car. He has good house manners, knows a few basic commands, and will have an obedience training requirement. This bouncy boy needs a family that will give him plenty of playtime and exercise. He is not your typical 7-8 year old. Doggie daycare, a midday dog walker, or someone who works from home and can exercise him regularly will be best for him.

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




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.

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.

Emma (#170313) 

Emma is a 2 1/2 yr old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 50 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Emma is approved for ages 12 and up.  Emma is a very nice dog and with some more training she will be a great one. She will have a training addendum. Will chase a ball and bring it back once in a while. She is a very sweet dog and will make some lucky family a super companion. She is house trained and will go stand by the door to go out. She was allowed on furniture and slept on the couch. She needs to be watched when alone as she still likes to chew on some things mostly paper inside and branches and pieces of wood outside. She is pretty good at un-stuffing stuffed animals. She would love a home with a yard so she can run and stretch her legs while she plays. She needs either a physical or underground fence.

Aug 16, 2017: Emma will need to continue with her training and being a young lab, will need lots of interactive exercise to tire out her mind and body. She does know her basic commands and is house- and crate-trained. She does still find things to chew when bored, so she will need to be watched. She desperately wants to play with other dogs, so she might be a candidate for a couple days of doggie day care each week. We did find out that Lucy does like the water and spent time sitting on the steps of the pool; she wasn't much of a retriever, but she wasn't afforded much, if any, interactive exercise.

Dec 28, 2017: Emma is a bouncy and energetic girl looking for fun. She loves to run around in the yard. She comes running at you but has learned to sit and wait for a treat. She also sits and waits for her food. Her focus is improving but sometimes she can be kind of skittish and loses focus easily. She gives high five and touch. Her recall is coming along. She did not recall at all when she came. She is a smart girl and gets genuinely pleased with herself when she earns a treat.

Emma needs an adopter who will continue to work with her on her cues, someone who will include her in outside activity. She has lots of energy and needs to burn that to be settled. She loves to play fetch with balls or sticks. She does well meeting other dogs. Emma is a beautiful girl who loves affection and will at times demand it if she feels she is not getting enough. Her play is a bit rough which is probably something she has been allowed or encouraged to do and is now in the process of learning appropriate play. She is definitely moving in the right direction. Because of her energy level, she will do best in a family with older children, so she's approved for kids 12 and up.

Foxy (#180328) and Rocky #2 (#1280325)

Rocky and Foxy are an adorable pair of affectionate pups who love belly rubs and ear massages and will gladly reciprocate with kisses. They are looking for their forever home since their previous owner passed away. Rocky is the handsome guy with a frosted face and Foxy is the pretty peanut butter and vanilla swirl. Foxy is the more dominant of the two and Rocky is happy to follow her lead. They are excellent in the car and like their dog beds. Both are a little nervous about thunderstorms and loud noises so might do best in a quiet home where they can learn to enjoy the simple pleasures like napping in a dog bed and sunbathing in the yard.

They are good with other dogs, no cat history, but they didn't mind the ones they met at the vet's, so they may be good with cats. They are approved for kids 8 and up.

Rocky is an 8-year-old neutered black male Lab. Foxy is an 11-year-old spayed female Jack Russel Terrier. Foxy is on glucosamine supplements for age-related arthritis.

Gracie (#180025)

Gracie has been working hard and is ready to find her forever home. She loves to nap and roam around the yard investigating and sniffing everything. She is an incredibly chill girl. She really just does her own thing. She doesn’t bark and is fine in the crate or napping on a dog bed. She doesn’t hear terribly well, so the hardest part about having Gracie in your world is getting her attention with a cookie, or touching her, instead of using your voice. And this girl LOVES her cookies so that’s not hard at all! She meets new dogs with a happy, wagging tail and is great with everyone though will let a youngster know to please not pounce on her.

Update from Gracie's Foster Family - Feb 3, 2018: Sweet Gracie wanted to show off her two favorite things....napping and waiting for food with her buds! This girl is easy going and meshes perfectly into the household. She bounces when she runs, and has a sweet playful streak. She’s practically always happy! She loves all the stacked "princess" beds at her foster home and will usually pick one of those to cuddle on. 

Update from Gracie's Foster Family - Feb 13, 2018: Gracie's favorite thing to do is eat, and she will wiggle and wag her full body and prance when it’s time for meals. She’s not much for toys but does like a good snuggle, and a nap. She meets new dogs with a happy, wagging tail, and is great with everyone, though will let a youngster know to please not pounce on her. She's house and crate trained, and snoozes on a comfy dog bed in the crate near her canine buds while foster mom is at work. At nighttime, she cuddles on one of the stacked dog beds in foster mom's room. She’s a super sweet girl, full of love, and will make someone very happy.

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.

Hercules (#180113)

Herc appears to be a darned near perfect foster- except for his climbing over the 4' chain link fence- but when he did shimmy over, he came straight to the front porch and softly scratched at the door. After successful cat introductions, he slept on a dog bed in his fosters' room with two cats and all had a restful night. He has been fine with the 3 foster dogs and 2 residents he has met.

Herc is great off leash but needs some work on the leash, although he does stop pulling once he has been walking for a while. He is a cuddlebug and is starting to take some interest in toys. He is fantastic in the car as well. Herc is a little worried about trucks: when a delivery came, he went straight for the door to get back inside, so we don't think he would be happy in an urban environment, nor in a busy suburban neighborhood. We have yet to hear him bark, but he will whine softly if he thinks he is being neglected when locked away from his peeps. He needs work on being crated and learning manners when on a leash. He is strong for his size. But his main goal is to please people and is extremely food motivated so training should be easy. He will require a 6 foot fence if relying on a fence to contain him.

Hercules is a 1 year old neutered black male that weighs 54 pounds and can stand to gain a few. He is up to date on vaccines. Nice dog! No surprise he was a favorite at the vet's. Approved for kids 10 and up and good with other dogs and cats.

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!

Koko (#170329)

Koko is a 7 year old girl, who weighs 40lbs. She is up to date on her vaccinations and is heartworm negative. She will need a physical fence. She has perfect house manners and does not need to be crated. She is approved for kids 10 and up, is good with other dogs, but seems too interested in cats to live with them.  Koko loves to cuddle, long walks and squeaky toys. Koko has diabetes and needs one insulin injection each day to keep her happy and healthy.

Update from Koko's foster on March 9: Koko had a vacation foster while her foster mom was out of town and did wonderful there. "Koko was a dream to foster, even with the rain and snow! This little 40lb nugget was so chill in a new home and greeted several service men with a bark and tail wag!  Koko takes treats very gently, and loves to snooze in a sunbeam or on the couch if invited. Koko is very smart and loving!"

Oct 8, 2017: Koko is playful, affectionate, smart as a whip, and loves long walks and car rides. She is perfect in the house, and is not crated. Koko needs a fenced in yard only because she will not poop on a leash, though her foster family is working with her on that and she's making progress. A few weeks ago she was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus but one simple insulin injection daily has restored her to her normal, exuberant self. Koko does fine in an end unit townhouse with a ton of activity and traffic and rarely barks unless someone comes to the door. She would probably be best as an only pet but can and does live with another dog whom she has learned to trust. Koko is good on walks and loves to say hello to the neighbors. She does not like meeting neighborhood dogs face to face but is fine sitting at a comfortable distance when her people are chatting with another dog owner. 

Update from Koko's foster on Aug 21, 2017: KoKo is a dream in the house and a smart, affectionate girl who only wants to please and get belly rubs in return. She loves to go for walks and could jog with you but also fine hanging out and watching a little TV and cuddling. She's great in the car and would love trips especially those involving water. Baby pool in the back yard works in the mean time.

Leo (#180184)

Leo is the George Clooney of labs- stocky body, large paws and strong otter tail. He is a velcro lab to the extreme and will follow you everywhere. He's working on his leash manners and enjoyed his three mile walk. He has a great sit and even better kisses. He rides well in the car. He prefers his canine pals to on the calmer side so he would not enjoy dog parks or doggie play dates. Leo is incredibly sweet and has no idea that he is a "retriever" of any sort..but he's a good boy.

Leo needs a yard with a physical fence. He will also need to go to obedience training and a family that will exercise him regularly and not leave him crated for a long workday.

She hasn't been on leash much before but her skills are improving and the Easy Walk harness helps significantly. She will chase Kongs and occasionally bring them back to you. She loves getting her belly rubbed. As an energetic girl, she will do well with someone who is looking for a walking or hiking companion.

Molly has a high prey drive so no cats. There is no history of Molly living with children so she is approved for kids ages 10 and up.

Molly is a 6 year old black spayed female that weighs 55 pounds.

Molly #3 (#180278)

Molly #3 is a little shy but once she gets to know you she will not leave your side. Once you take a little time and go slow will get the love back 100 times over. She loves to be petted and just can’t get enough of it. She is not comfortable doing stairs so a home with limited steps would be best for her. She rides well in the car and is happy to hang in her crate, even though she doesn’t need to be crated.

Molly needs to go to a family with another confident dog and in a quiet suburban or rural area. She also needs a physical fence.
Molly is a 4 year old yellow spayed female that weighs 66 pounds. Molly is good with other dogs and with dog savvy cats. We do not know if she has lived with children, so she is approved for ages 10 and up.

Pokie (#160433)

Pokie is an 8 year old neutered chocolate male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  He is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. He weighs 61 lbs. Pokie is diabetic and partially blind. Pokie is a sweet and mellow guy looking for a family who can take care of him and is committed to helping him with his diabetes. All he needs are his insulin injections twice a day. In return, he will stay close to you and shower you with love.
Pokie has no problem getting around, even with his failing eyesight. He loves to play and is OBSESSED with his "babies". He sleeps with them, goes outside to go potty with them and just loves holding them in his mouth. Pokie is such a sweetie! 

 Update from Pokie's foster on Aug 28, 2017: This sweet boy has at least one baby with him at all times (literally at all times).  Pokie has been patiently waiting for his forever family for almost a year. His partial blindness and diabetes don't slow him down a bit. Pokie adores people, loves to play, is very quiet and has exceptional house manners. He would like a home with a quiet canine companion or as an only doggy child. No kitties. 
 
Update from Pokie's foster on July 22, 2017: He is 8 years young and has impeccable house manners. Pokie runs up and down stairs at full speed and gets around just fine. Pokie begs for his twice daily insulin injections as he knows there's a treat involved. He is super loving and friendly to all people he meets. He is also obsessed with his stuffed animals and sun bathing. He would prefer that any doggie companions be super relaxed. 

Pokie has been waiting patiently for his forever family; he knows they are on their way!  Maybe it's you?

Quincy (#170582)

Quincy is a 9 year old neutered chocolate male who weighs 93 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heartworm negative.  Quincy would prefer not to have any canine or feline companions; and is approved for humans 18 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes and townhouses in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.

 

Quincy is a big boy who will be your chocolate shadow. He knows how to sit and give paw (and high five!) and he loves meal time and cookies. If you have trouble staying on schedule, Quincy will remind you when it's dinner time! He chases cats and wants to be the only dog in the family. He is not comfortable in big crowds and it takes him a bit to warm up to new people. He will be happiest in a home with adults only. Quincy walks beautifully on a leash, and sleeps quietly on his dog bed at night. Quincy does not need to be crated, but since he’s a velcro dog, he’d like someone that is home more than not. His ideal forever family would be in a quiet neighborhood and where he can be the center of someone's world.


Update from Quincy's foster on Nov 7, 2017: Quincy loves his humans and his cookies and is looking for a family where people are home more than not, so he can have company, as well as someone to go on a short walk with him. He loves short walks. When at home, he enjoys playing with stuffed animals, and loves chewing on antlers. He is a great Velcro companion. This is an easy dog who can't understand why he hasn't found his forever family yet. 

Jan 23, 2018: Adoptable Quincy loves the weekend, and loves this beautiful weather we've been having! He loves running around chasing his toys, and then taking a nap (in front of the space heater on the colder days). He would like an adult-only home, with humans that are home more often than not, as he loves his humans. His life wasn't so great before LRCP, so he is slow to trust, but will be a very special companion if you earn that trust.

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.
