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!

Casey #4 (#160760)

Casey is an 8 yr old chocolate spayed female.  She weighs 77 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but not with cats.  Casey is approved for ages 10 and up.  Casey is a very sweet and social girl.  She has spent her entire life living on a few different farms in their breeding program.  She is looking forward to finding a family that can make up for all those years and give her the love and attention that she deserves. Casey needs to go to a home with a fenced in yard as she has always had a fenced in area where she can run around and explore the yard.

Update from Casey's foster family - Jan 25, 2017:

Casey is an easy companion who enjoys going for walks and playing in the yard. She doesn't realize her age, so she needs to be told when she's run around too much. She's great with other dogs and has met many. During a short stay at another foster home, she got along great with the resident lab and other visiting dogs. She continues to discover the comforts of indoor living and is housetrained. She would like to find a family of her own so another needy senior can take her spot in her foster home. If you're looking for a girl with a pep in her step, Casey is the one.

Dozer #2 (#160473)

 Watch Dozer play tug with his human foster brother

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 - Jan 27, 2017: Dozer is a very friendly guy, but doesn't jump on people. He kind of bounces up and down in a happy/funny way when he is excited. Dozer likes balls and stuffed animals, long walks and like most labs, enjoys any food you want to give him! He is house trained and does not need to be crated, but will check out your countertops if you leave snacks unattended. Dozer strongly believes age is just a number and has more pep in his step than the average 10 year old! 

Jan 25, 2017: Dozer is a character. I spent time with him over the weekend, and I couldn't believe how energetic he was. He loves to go for walks and is strong, so must be walked with an Easy Walk harness. He is a happy-go-lucky boy who has no clue of his age. This boy has places to go and says he feels half his age. If you want to meet Dozer and free up a foster home for another needy senior dog at the shelter, this is your chance to gain a walking companion and snuggler on the couch. 

Jan 20, 2017: Dozer is a happy go lucky pup. He's very active and playful for his age and is looking for a human he can have fun with. Dozer likes to give kisses and de-stuff the occasional stuffed animal. He enjoys playing outside and requires a fence to make sure he doesn't go out seeking new friends. He walks well on leash and has beautiful eyes! He's a big fan of frozen Peanut Butter Kongs and has good house manners.

Update from their foster family - Jan 25, 2017:

Layla and Gage are sweet and thrive on getting attention. They are great family dogs and especially love children. They get very excited for walks and mealtime. Gage is full of energy and could use a bit more training on the leash. Layla still loves retrieving squeaky toys. They would love to find their own family so another needy dog could take up their space in their foster home. If you love chocolate labs, please take a look at this awesome pair.

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 is an insulin injection in the morning and one at night at regular times. In return, he will stay close to you and shower you with love.

Update from Pokie's foster on Oct 7, 2016: While he may be partially blind, Pokie has no problem getting around. He loves to play and is OBSESSED with his "babies". He sleeps with them, goes outside to go potty with them and just loves holding them in his mouth. Pokie is diabetic, but is very good getting his shots twice a day. He will happily do anything for a treat. Pokie is such a sweetie! 
Update from Pokie's foster family Jul 24, 2016:  Pokie is such a sweet boy. He is very friendly and loves to be with people. He has been doing well navigating his foster home and will do steps when his foster mom says "step." His foster mom reports that it is very easy to give him his insulin. Give this boy a chance and he will reward you with so much love and loyalty.

Sunshine #3 (#160835)


Sunshine is a 10 year old spayed yellow female who weighs 61 lbs.  She is current with her shots and is heartworm negative.  Sunshine is good with dogs and with cats; and approved for kids 10 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.  


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.
