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 (#170609) & Mason (#170610)

The adoption fee for bonded pairs has been reduced for a limited time to help keep them together. Please consider adopting a pair of Labs and enjoy Double the Love.

Abby is a 7 yr old chocolate spayed female and Mason is a 10 yr old chocolate neutered male.  Abby weighs 80 lbs and Mason weighs 91 lbs.  They are both up to date on vaccinations and are heartworm negative.  They are good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Abby and Mason are approved for ages 5 and up.  & Mason are great dogs. They like being with you to get petted and 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, Mason surprises Abby once in a while. They would like a home where they can stretch out on dog beds and get plenty of loving.

Update from their foster October 7- Abby and Mason are wonderful! They love people and are so happy to have love and attention. They are house trained, good with kids, and good with other dogs. They walk nicely on the leash and love to retrieve tennis balls. They don't jump up and know sit and down. They can be trusted alone in the house and won't chew anything. Abby *might* sneak onto a couch or two, but who can blame her! The only time either of them barks is Mason when he wants us to throw the tennis ball, NOW. They don't chase squirrels or birds and seem unconcerned about noises like cars or sirens. They are very happy to settle down on dog beds after playing and sleep quietly at night.

From Allie's foster: Allie is the sweetest sweetheart. Her big chocolate brown eyes look like melted chocolate and that is what this girl will do to your heart - melt it. Allie is 5 years young and has a lovely, calm energy. She rides in the car and walks on a leash like a breeze. She is fully housebroken and will sit and offer you her paw with the elegance that befits the Queen she is. She is a bit of a Queen Bee with her foster brothers at times, but she is all bluster and noise. She loves all people and is generous with her kisses. She will cuddle up next to you and watch a movie or sleep sweetly. She is good in the crate but does not really need it as she has not bothered anything in her foster home.

He is looking for a family that will give him plenty of attention, love, and training. He must have a fenced yard as he likes to wander. 

Update from Black Bart's foster on Aug 4, 2017: Black Bart learned a lot over the last few months and he's ready to find his forever family. This boy is shy at first, and takes longer to warm to men than women. But once he trusts you, he will be your little shadow, and his fun and playful side will shine. He LOVES other dogs! 
Black Bart is also learning to relax. He enjoys sitting under his foster's desk while she works. He is a super cuddly and very sweet boy. He loves his foster sister! Every day he gets more comfortable and happy. He is becoming more comfortable in the crate, loves to play, is initiating cuddles with foster mom, and sleeping through the night. He only barks when he has something to say! Like "I need to go out" or "I'm hungry" or "there are cats here!" 
This shy boy is really coming into his own, but will really thrive with a family to call his own.

Bob (#170018)

Bob is a 4 yr old neutered black male.  He weighs 55 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations.  He came to us heartworm positive and now has completed his treatment!  Bob is an easy going dog that loves to be with you.  So far he hasn't been interested in playing with toys or retrieving but that will come with time now that he is with Lab Rescue.  Bob is very interested in food but he is very polite about it: he doesn't guard his food, doesn't beg and didn't countersurf at their home.  He doesn't like any fruits or vegetables- raw or cooked- and will spit them out.  He was not always gentle when taking treats, so his owners need to figure out which way works best and be consistent.  He is a quiet dog and rarely barks inside, but may whine if there is something he wants.   Bob loves his walks- almost as much as food. He will bark at other dogs- but not in an aggressive way- and after he does bark, he has a little swagger in his step.  He does have a penchant for dirty socks, so he is a constant reminder to pick up after yourself. He isn't destructive but may stop and taste something that looks interesting, so he does need toys and needs to be taught which things do belong to him.  He is a delightful dog, full of personality who loves to be with you.  He would love a family that has a house with a yard they can play with her in and give him the love and attention he deserves.

Update from Bob's Foster Family - Jul 30, 2017: Bob is a happy and affectionate guy now that he had some time to settle in. He loves going for walks and dances and prances the moment you touch the leash. On walks he keeps a good pace and he will pull when he sees a critter worthy of chasing! He is a smart guy. His foster dad started using the back door. After two walks he now heads to the back door for outings! In the house, Bob is mostly a low key and quiet guy except for pre-walk excitement, when he hears or sees something he feels the need to comment on, and when he sees rabbits or squirrels in the yard. He is not sure about ceiling fans, flashlight, and such and he will let you know. Bob loves treats and he will show you his sit, paw, and down commends. He is happy to repeat the tricks if you have more treats! Bob loves to be with his humans and snuggles nicely in bed. He waited to be asked to get in the bed but now knows it is his place. Bob does not like when others touch his food bowl so he would do best in an adult-only and solo dog household. 

Update from Bob's Foster Family - May 27, 2017: Bob is very calm and quiet in the house. He will occasionally bark to let you know something is happening outside. He knows the commands sit, down, and shake a paw. He is so eager to go outside he dances at the door when you are hooking up his leash. He is good on leash except when he sees a little critter! Then he bounces and pulls with excitement! Bob is very snuggly at bedtime and sleeps soundly through the night until you wake up. He will hang out with you when you are home and come over to get some petting when you call him. Bob can be shy when you first meet him but he is quite affectionate once he gets to know you.

Butch (#170208)

Butch is a 10 year old black neutered male.  He weighs 93 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Butch is approved for ages 10 and up.  Butch is a strikingly handsome and sprite guy looking for an amazing family to show him the golden years. Butch is very affectionate and fits the term lap dog, he really doesn't know his size! He loves ear rubs and likes to give kisses. He enjoys trips to the dog parks and likes to retrieve and swim. He is house trained and crate trained but hasn't used the crate in some time and doesn't need it. He walks well on leash but is very social and loves to say hi to other dogs. He knows basic commands.
Butch will do best in a home with carpeted floors or with carpet runners. He'd also needs a home with few stairs.

Update from Butch's foster family - Aug 21, 2017: Butch is a gentle giant with a very sweet personality. He is a great walker, and loves playing with tennis balls, especially the squeaky kong! He will give you the softest kisses when he's ready. He takes his meds nicely. He does not get on furniture at all. He does best in a one-level carpeted home with only a few stairs. Butch is such a good boy, and very quiet unless you sing to him. He like to show you that he can sing too! 

Update from Butch's foster family - Sep 30, 2017: Butch is an 11 year old sweet senior. This happy boy loves to play with his squeaky ball, loves belly rubs, and loves to take walks. He is also happy to just chill on his bed. He does not get on furniture at all. He does best in a home with few stairs and with carpet, or strategically-placed runners on wood floors. Butch is such an easy going boy. Give him a chance!

Chance (#170676)

Chance is approved for ages 10 and up.  He is approved for townhouses in rural or suburban areas with adequate exercise to keep him happy.  No e-fences for this boy.

From Chance's foster on Oct 13, 2017: Chance is a wonderful, fun little guy. He was great in the crate last night. No barking or accidents. He needs a little work on house training but does go out to do his business. He is too busy playing to remember to go to the door or let us know, so we will work on that. He was great with our dogs, he played with them and loved chewing on a bone. He is a big chewer but we have plenty for him to chew on! He understands no and sit (just not for very long). He is very lovable, gives lots of kisses to us and my pups! It seems he would be fine with another dog or as the only one. He does get a little car sick so ginger snaps may be in order until he gets the hang of it. He will make someone a fun companion; he is full of puppy antics! He will have a training addendum to help him learn to be the best dog he can be!

Chewy (aka Chewbacca) (#170709) 

Chewy is a 5 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 46 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Chewy is approved for ages 10 and up.  Chewy is friendly and likes to be with you to get petted. He is not a high energy dog, but more laid back and likes to take life a little slower. He thinks playing with other dogs is great fun but will give that up to be with people. He may have been abused before he went to his rescuers as he will flinch if you raise your hand suddenly. Chewy would like a house with a family will give him love, attention and training. He needs a home with a fence as he likes to wander.

Cisco (#170576)

Cisco is a 2-1/2 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 66 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs and cats and is approved for ages 10 and up.  Cisco has been through a lot in his young life and is recovering from some serious injuries inflicted on him by humans who let him down. However despite this, he is very sweet and not shy at all with people. He was hanging out in the shelter office where he got love and gave kisses all day. He's looking for that special family who will give him all the love and attention he deserves.

Update from Cisco's foster family - Sep 29, 2017: Cisco is a big love and goofball!! He's a smart boy, too; he knows sit, down, and paw! Cisco is a strong fella, with a lot of love to go around. His favorite hobbies include fetch with tennis balls, snuggling, exchanging paw for treats, and long walks around the lake. 

Update from Cisco's foster family - Sep 23, 2017: If you are looking for a happy go lucky, sweet guy, then Cisco is the pup for you! Unless you look very closely, you would never know the trauma he has been through with his exuberant personality! He rode very well in the crate in the car, and has been good with the 2 female dogs, a lab and hound. On our walk and at the park he was very eager to great any human or canine friend who came his way. He even gave kisses to some of our neighbors! Once arriving home, he immediately checked out the toy bin and found a nylabone, stuffed toy and a tennis ball. He likes to play fetch and romp around the yard! He does need some brushing up on his manners as he can be a little jumpy. Cisco's eager to please personality should make training easy. Cisco needs a home where he will get lots of exercise and love! So far he is staying off the furniture and was ok with 1 cat (who is very dog savvy), but was very interested in another cat. A home with a dog savvy cat may be ok for him.

Coal (#170527) & Bear (#170528) 

Coal is a 57 pound 4 yr old black neutered male and Bear is a 71 pound 6 yr old yellow neutered male. They are both up to date on vaccinations and are heartworm negative. Coal and Bear are good with cats and are approved for ages 10 and up. Bear is a very friendly dog who loves to give hugs. Coal is a gorgeous black lab with big round eyes and a shiny coat. Coal is a little shy and scared with new things and has more confidence when Bear is by his side.

HOBBIES: Hanging out with our people, going for walks, socializing with people and dogs at the dog park, peanut butter Kongs (best thing ever!), chew toys, car rides, and getting attention from adoring humans.

Update from Coal and Bear's Foster family - Sep 30, 2017: Bear and Coal continued to expand their neighborhood fan club of humans and canines. Bear is showing more playfulness at the dog park as he engages with dogs of all sizes and sideswipes Coal when Coal has a ball. Coal discovered the joy of playing with an enormous Chuck-it ball and makes sure to sidle up to all people at the dog park so they can pet him. Not to be left out, Bear also enjoys attention and taught himself how to hop onto the park benches to be face-to-face with those sitting or more accessible to those standing. A serviceman came to the house yesterday, and the boys greeted him warmly and snoopervised his check of the AC unit. Even though Coal trotted upstairs with the man’s bootie in his mouth, Foster Mom suspects he would have tried to take them home if he did not already have 4 dogs at home. When hanging out at home, the boys love to wrestle and play, sometimes redecorating in the process as they shift dog beds and relocate throw rugs. During walks, they will ensure that no squirrels get close enough to harm you, so harnesses are helpful.

Update from Coal and Bear's Foster family - Sept 21, 2017: These boys are a catch!! Coal is an affectionate pup who loves to share kisses with everyone (human and canine) he meets. This sweetheart has captured many hearts with his charm as he trots over for pets and then melts down to the ground to expose his belly while he softly licks the hands of whoever is lucky enough to be petting him. Bear also attracts people with his handsome looks and gentle lab lean, easily sharing with Coal who will inevitably wiggle in for some attention of his own. While both enjoy watching for squirrels, Bear is more likely to patrol the perimeter while Coal is physically unable to resist chasing after any thrown ball. At their foster home into which they settled in record time, Coal often has a ball or toy in his mouth, and Bear likes to keep the couch or dog bed warm while he naps, snoring softly. They are learning new commands like sit, stay, and come and hope to find someone who will continue training them. Bear and Coal enjoy hanging out with their people, crate quietly when left alone, and are always ready for their next adventure.

Connor (#170692)

Connor is a 4 yr old chocolate neutered male.  He weighs 65 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs and cats and is approved for ages 10 and up.  Connor seems to be a very quiet dog. He may be housetrained; he was kept in a horse stall for a while and used only one area. Connor originally wandered onto a person’s property where a female shepherd and several cats lived and was good with all of them. The rescuer came to pick him up and he jumped into her truck with her pittie and he was very friendly. He has a white blaze on his chest, and white booties (all four paws are white)!

Update from Rescue Volunteer on Oct 11, 2017: Connor and I went for a walk in the rain and we had a good time. He appreciated getting out of the stressful hospital environment and was wagging his tail and skipping around. He took treats gently and waited until he was outside to do his business. He walked well on the leash without a harness, and rode quietly in the crate for the hour ride. Once he gets into a home and a routine, I'm sure he'll be a great pup. Also, his white boots are to die for!

Cooper #5 (#170514) & Harley (#170513)

The adoption fee for bonded pairs has been reduced for a limited time to help keep them together. Please consider adopting a pair of Labs and enjoy Double the Love.

 

Cooper and Harley are 3 yr old chocolate and yellow neutered males.  Cooper weighs 72 lbs and Harley weighs 47 lbs.  They are up to date on vaccinations and are both heartworm positive.  They will be treated by Lab Rescue at one of our approved vets.  They are good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Cooper and Harley are approved for ages 10 and up.   Harley & Cooper are friendly and love to be with you and be petted. Not sure who is the boss as they take turns. Cooper is now the first to chase after a toy but Harley will bring it back. They were very shy when they first came in but that was to be expected, the only place they have been was their home. Harley was the first to come up and get attention and let me pet her, now Cooper will push his way to get in front of her. They are bonded and will let you know when one is not close by. They would like to have a family that is active and can give them love, attention, training and exercise so they will thrive. They need a fenced yard as they have never been in a home without one.
Update from their foster Sept 7, 2017: Cooper and Harley are a wonderful bonded pair. Cooper is a shy guy and gets his confidence from Harley. Harley is a love bug! They both ride great in the car and just sleep in the backseat. They do everything together, and even love to snuggle together. It's really cute! They both are house trained and crate trained although they don't really need to be crated. They figured out the dog door quickly and enjoy playing with each other outside.

Dixie #3 (#170292)

Dixie is a 12 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 74 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs and cats and is approved for ages 7 and up.  Dixie is a gentle and sweet girl whose life has been turned upside down by the death of her owner. She really craves attention and reassurance, but her confidence is beginning to return and she is starting to show a little interest in exploring on her own when outside.

Her hind legs are a little wobbly; she can't handle slippery floors, so area runners are needed in those areas. She is excellent on a leash and immediately responds if called, though she's rarely more than a few feet away. Dixie doesn't pay any attention at all to the resident dogs; people are what matter to her. Dixie's ideal home would be a calm environment and a person/people with lots of time to lavish attention on her, few stairs, and no slippery floors. She doesn't want or need a lot of exercise, so a small yard or even no yard but a few short walks daily would be OK for her.  And there's no need to make a trip to the dog park, as they may be too much action for this sweet girl.

Update from Dixie's foster on Aug 14, 2017: DIXIE not only takes time to smell the roses, she also takes time to sweep up crumbs left over from outdoor meals. It's hard to understand why this lovely, well-behaved, adoring girl has not yet been snapped up. She is an excellent companion for anyone who needs even the tiniest ego boost - just look in her direction and she will gaze back lovingly and wag her tail. 
She is the sweetest, most gentle girl, who is constantly wagging her tail. She adjusted extremely well to the foster switch for vacation. She checked out the house, yard, and got into our routine amazingly quickly. She likes to stay close to her humans. She will let us know when she needs to go out by coming over to my lap and dancing a bit. She did well at an event with 5 other dogs and children--she is obviously a social girl. We gave her a pawacure plus at petsmart, and she is walking easier with her nails short. She has learned to use the Subaru Outback ramp with our dogs, and travels well. She has enjoyed our pop corn toss and waits her turn politely catching the pup corn. She sleeps on a dog bed next to foster canine sibs in our room. This girl is so easy to please. We are greeted upon coming home with her rapid search for her favorite toy, and a dancing presentation.

Dixie #5 (#170698)

Dixie is a 4 yr old chocolate female.  She weighs 82 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs and cats and is approved for ages 10 and up. Dixie will be spayed in a few weeks after she is out of heat.  Dixie also needs to lose a few pounds. An active family will help her lose her extra weight and regain her girlish figure! 

In her previous life before Lab Rescue, Dixie lived on a farm and had several litters of puppies. Now she is looking for an awesome forever family to take her on adventures! She is a very sweet and gentle girl. She does not get much exercise and will benefit from regular walks and that will help her to shed a few pounds. She LOVES to swim in the pond on the property. She LOVES people and welcomes everyone who come on the farm.

Duke #5 (#170625) 

Duke is an eight month old black neutered male.  He weighs 38 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Duke is approved for ages 10 and up.   Duke was rescued from Houston Texas following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. He was in a Houston-area shelter prior to the hurricane and was available for adoption at the time the hurricane struck. He was transferred to a Houston Pets Alive temporary facility to make space for the shelters to hold dogs displaced by flooding in hopes that those dogs can be reunited with their families.

Update from Duke's foster on Oct 1, 2017: Duke is acclimating to his foster home. He's very excited when foster mom comes home and is working on not jumping up in excitement. He learned sit. He is very smart and has a fantastic nose that can sniff out a treat from a mile away. He loves people, and attaches easily.

Kevin (#170241)

Kevin is 4 year old black male, who weighs 46 lbs. He's up to date on his vaccines, and came to us heartworm positive.  He has been treated by Lab Rescue, and is officially done with his required rest period! (Hooray for Kevin!)  Kevin will need a home with a physical fence. He's approved for kids 10 and up, good with other dogs, but is not a fan of cats. He does ok on a leash, and in his crate, and loves car rides.  He has an exuberant personality, and loves running and playing with people and other dogs.  He enjoys toys but still isn't sure what to do with them, so he will need a family who can help him learn how to be part of family, and channel his labby energy.  He is still learning commands, and his ideal family will have the time and experience to help him come into his own.

Update from Kevin's foster on August 20, 2017: Sweet Kevin has been cleared to play after his HW Treatment!! He is such a happy boy who loves to romp and play with his toys!! After spending much of his early life in a pen with no attention, this boy thrives on human attention and did I mention he LOVES toys? He loves them so much that he needs to be the only dog as he does not want to share- I don't blame him - he just discovered them! He is good with other dogs on walks, at the vet etc., just wants to be the king of his castle and have all the toys for himself!! Kevin is a 4 year old sweet guy who is so ready for his furever family!!

Koko (#170329)

Koko is a 7 year old girl, who weighs 56 lbs but needs to lose a few to get to her ideal weight. 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 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. 

Watch her with her foster brother on  
Koko is a lovely frosted girl who will do most anything for a delicious treat! She was eager to show off her sit, down and impressive tongue shot for the camera!

Update from Lady's foster on Oct 12, 2017: Lady enjoyed a spa day. She was very calm and amazingly easy to bathe - easiest dog we've ever bathed. She's quite timid and startles with fast movements. Very sweet and loving. On walks she ignores and looks away from other dogs that are barking at her. She's eating, drinking and relieving her self well with no problems. She slept well in the crate last night. NO problems at all. She is starting to play with us a little and sitting closer to us when we are gathered together in the family hangout room.

Update from Lady's foster on Oct 4, 2017: Lady is doing well in her foster home. Her leash skills are improving and walks OK with an easy walk harness. She does not seem to know how to maneuver steps so we are working on that and she is catching on. Lady seems to be house trained as she has not had any accidents.

Peanut Butter (#170354)

Peanut Butter  is a 8 1/2 year old neutered yellow male who weighs 55 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heartworm negative.  Peanut Butter 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.

 

Peanut Butter is a sweet soul in search of a lot of TLC.  He is very underweight and needs someone to help him gain around 20 lbs. He has clearly been fending for himself for a long time and now it’s time for him to have someone look out for his best interests.  Peanut Butter has a couple of health issues that will be taken care of by Lab Rescue at one of their approved vets once he has gained some weight and is strong enough for the surgery.

Update from Peanut Butter's foster on Jul 2, 2017: Peanut Butter is doing great and is really getting more energy every day. He's enjoying longer walks and playing fetch. He's been sleeping on a bed in the living room instead of his crate and has had zero accidents. He isn't a real fan of stairs that don't have carpet so a home with hardwood stairs or a lot of deck stairs probably won't work for him. He's very easy going and just wants attention and comfy spot to take naps in the sun. He enjoys being out on the deck and napping and just watching the birds out the front door. He hung out with some cats and small dogs this weekend and was great with all of them.

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.

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.
