Angel (#170682) 

Angel is a 10 yr old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 89 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Angel is approved for kids of all ages.  Angel is a beautiful girl looking for a family where she can enjoy her golden years.

She belonged to a family who didn't pay much attention to her, so she would walk almost a mile down the road to go visit her friends at a local dog kennel. The workers there would call the family to let them know she was with them, but it would take them days to go pick her up. Eventually days turned into weeks. Finally the family said they didn't have time for her and surrendered her to us. Angel has age-related arthritis and has difficulty doing steps, so she will do best in a home with no stairs, or in an area of the house where she doesn't have to do steps.

They know sit, stay and will give you their paw. Neither have had formal training and would benefit from an obedience class. Kindle and Brodie enjoy 

retrieving in their fenced yard and playing with each other. Kindle has been swimming and enjoyed himself while Brodie hasn't had the opportunity to swim yet. They require a physical fence and a family with lots of love to give these two special pups.

Duke #6 (#170689) 

Duke is a 10 month old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 45 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 8 and up.  Duke and his brother were pulled by a partner rescue after they had been taken to a rural shelter by their owner. They did not appear to be bonded and splitting them up confirmed that. We don't know much about Duke yet, other than he's pretty mellow for a youngster, and while he needs manners training, he's not mouthy like many young labs. Duke gives pretty good kisses and takes treats very gently. Despite being reluctant to get in the car, Duke was a wonderful passenger- he just laid down and slept, occasionally stretching and looking out the window before repositioning himself. Duke does not seem to have been on a leash much and does pull, so life would be easier if he had a fenced yard since it will take practice and patience on a leash. Duke will have a training addendum.
More to come on this sweet boy as we get to know him!

Sep 16, 2017 update from Paul's foster: Paul is such a sweet and handsome boy. He loves to cuddle on the couch, and doesn't let having three legs get him down. He likes to go for a few short walks a day, and then nap. He is a catch!


Update from Paul's foster on August 9, 2017: Paul is a sweetheart with his tail always wagging. He loves people, typically staying close to wherever you're sitting. He is very laid back, except when he hears the sound of a bag of something being opened that might be food. He takes lots of naps but enjoys walks outside. He doesn't pull. He seems curious about dogs he sees outside but then he soon loses interest. We've never heard him whine or bark. He'll nudge you with his head or put his head in your lap to get your attention.

Wesson is a 5 year old neutered yellow male who weighs 58 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heart worm negative.  Wesson is good with dogs and with cats; and approved for kids 16 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes, townhouses or condo/apt  provided they are located n a quiet area.  

 

There is nothing Wesson would rather do than just chill with his peeps. He is a complete joy to take on walks and will talk up a storm as soon as he sees the harness come out. He loves other dogs - large and small, male and female- and has been caught snoozing with the resident cat on multiple occasions. Wesson is house trained and crate trained and leaves things alone that don't belong to him. Wesson is very calm but can very animated: he will talk and play bow when it's play time and the more you egg him on, the more he has to say. If you want to feel important and/or loved, Wesson is your boy. His shortcoming is that he is afraid of thunderstorms, so he takes medication when a storm is coming up; once he gets his fix, he will ride it out snuggling with you. 

 

Like a number of us, Wesson is not comfortable around adolescent humans, so we have set his minimum human companion age at 16; he has been terrific with the 15 and 16 year olds he has encountered. We don't know whether he is hyper-sensitive to hormonal change or if possibly a pubescent child was involved in the fire that destroyed his home, but his contact with young teens (and below) should be avoided. 

Wesson has been living with one of Lab Rescue's trainers who has offered to continue to be a resource for his new family.

Bella is an 8 year old black spayed female.  She weighs 90 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Bella is approved for ages 6 and up.   Bella is an easy going dog who likes to hang out with you no matter what you are doing. Outside she hasn't shown much interest in toys yet but we were told she likes to play with balls, Frisbee's and tug toys. She likes to go for walks, rides and hang out with you. She quickly makes friends with new people. Her owners took her on walks morning and nights and played in the yard with her. She would love a home with a yard to stretch her legs while and explore.

Update from Bella's Foster Family - Sep 30, 2017: Bella has taken long walks with her foster dad every day and lost her extra weight. She is now in great shape! She loves to meet people and is very gentle. Can be left alone in the house all day. She likes to be in the same room with her foster dad and sits by his side while he reads or works on the computer. She is a real "love." 

Update from Bella's Foster Family - Sept 21, 2017: Bella is looking for a family that will take her long walks and then will come inside and rub her belly. She will sit quietly next to you when you are reading or using the computer. She sleeps though the night and waits quietly for you to wake up. She is perfect for those that like to sleep in on the weekends!! 

Update from Bella's Foster Family - Sep 16, 2017: She is well behaved in the house, and had no accidents. She waits patiently by my bed for me to awake in the morning, and has not awoken me once since she arrived. When I leave her alone in she is well behaved and does not need to be crated. She enjoys being close to me, and lies down next to me when I work on the computer. She has learned quickly not to beg at the table (she IS on a diet after all!). She walks well on an Easy Walk harness. She knows a few commands (“sit” and “down”) but would benefit from some training, especially on heeling. Bella is good with most other dogs, but has come across a few that she didn't appreciate. She should be introduced properly to other dogs and would not do well in a dog park type environment. Oh, and she lost FOUR pounds and now weighs 86. Way to go Bella - keep up the good work!

He is good on walks and comfortable with a suburban neighborhood. We have met 1-2 neighborhood dogs and he is learning how to approach properly. When he hears other dogs barking, he'll throw in a bark too, just to be cool. He's been doing well with the 2 resident dogs. We are working on house training and he is improving every day. He eats really fast so a slow feeder bowl would be best. He voices a little protest when crated at night but settles quickly and is good till morning. He does not have any accidents in his crate. He is very cute, playful and lovable.

He did not chew his blanket, slept all night without a peep, got up this am, went outside, had breakfast and helped his 2 legged foster sister get ready for school. He is very curious and playful. Gave his new four legged foster sister a big hug when he met here, gave his 11 year old human foster sister a big hug when he met her. He did great in the crate while his foster was at work and is enjoying a relaxing evening. In his notes from the transport from TX, it says he was too timid/shy to even get out of his crate to go for a walk at shelter. He’s a new fella now- King of the Wild Frontier!

She will play by herself by tossing her toys up and then pouncing on them.. She is housetrained but still young. When she is out of her crate, they only thing she chewed on were her toys and Kong, which she loves with treats and peanut butter in it. She is good in the crate may try and tell you you're being mean the first time she goes in for you but quiets down as soon as she realizes it's not working (2-3 minutes) I only crated her when I was away or at home and couldn’t supervise her. She needs a family that will give her the attention, training and exercise she needs and that has a fenced yard so she can chase balls and toys safely.

Cash (#160725) 

Cash is a 5 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 81 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Cash is approved for ages 10 and up.  Cash has had a rough time but his luck changed when he was rescued by a Good Samaritan who started him on the path to rescue. He looks a lot better and is now happy with his tail wagging every time someone comes by his run.  He has a nice Lablean which he uses if you haven’t given him enough attention.  He doesn’t understand what all the fuss is about chasing balls and toys but if you toss him a treat he will go searching until he finds it.  He is easy going and wants to please you and his tail starts wagging when you talk to him.  He would like a home with a fenced yard as he was a stray who wandered off.
From his owner:  The thing I loved immediately about Cash is that he knows when it is time to relax and when it is time to play. He's got a great mix of energy and is very gentle in the house. Since I do not have a fence I made it a point to exercise Cash frequently. Every day, we would walk before work, I'd let him out around lunch time, we'd walk after work and then once again before bed. We'd probably go anywhere between 4-5 miles a day. He truly loves walking with a leash and will wag his tail the entire trip. On the weekends, we'd hike or head to the family farm where he'd run and play with other dogs. Although Cash does ok off leash, he is certainly an adventurist and will roam if given the opportunity, following his nose all over creation. Although he has become much better at wandering off, he still is an opportunist and will jump at the chance to chase a rabbit, squirrel, or a deer. Cash is quick to lean up against you and encourage you to pet him.
Cash is apprehensive around other dogs at first and will bristle his fur, but is gentle after a few minutes
Cash is not great with small rodents, cats, deer, rabbits, etc. He will chase after them as if they were food.
Cash loves his walks and loves to smell.
By the way, if there is food in the house and he can reach it, he will eat it, I learned very quickly to put all the food away.
Cash has never had an accident in the house and has waited up to 8 hours to go.
Cash does not bark unless he sees another animal, even that is minimal.
Cash loves a good ear rub and he'll let you know when you've hit the spot.
Cash gets excited about riding in the truck, mainly because the truck means we're going somewhere fun.
Every person that meets Cash, immediately loves him.

Dottie (#170303) 

Dottie is a 10 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 91 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Dottie is a friendly, outgoing, and happy-go-lucky girl. She used to live in a home with other dogs, so she needs to be adopted with another dog. She is housetrained and is used to roam around in a yard. Dottie is good with cats. We don't have any kid history, so she's approved for kids 10 and up. 

Update from Dottie's foster on Aug 5, 2017: Dottie is on vacation! Dottie is always great in the car so the ride to the beach was no problem. She explored the new house and likes looking out the sliding glass door when people walk by. She had a visit to the beach, think she may prefer the AC. She waded with us but had no interest in swimming. The busyness of the beach didn't bother her and she liked when people would stop to pet her. Back at the house now, she is stretched out on the floor with a fan blowing on her. Dottie is super easy going with people and low energy, no long walks needed. She's good with the resident dogs but doesn't always like the dogs she meets on walks. 

Update from Dottie's foster on July 7, 2017: Dottie has been loving all the cookouts and visitors that summer is bringing! She has been great with new people visiting the house and is social with our visitors, asking for a little attention and then heading off to lay in the shade after making her hellos. She doesn't bark at the doorbell and she greets everyone with a wagging tail! Dottie continues to lose some weight and we still limit her exercise but we did take for for an adventure to a stream this weekend. She liked wading in the water but didn't go in deep enough to try swimming. Maybe next time! She is such a doll!! Dottie has been wonderful. She is a sweetheart. She has been left out in the house while we were at work and didn't pull a thing out of place. She was friendly when the dog walker stopped in to let her out and was a perfect guest visiting foster grandparents this weekend. She is pretty good on leash, despite her size. She doesn't pull and seems to enjoy walks. She chased a bunny in the yard and was eyeing up some squirrels and would have chased them if she was off leash. Dottie gets along fine with the resident dog and cat. She snoozes a lot, generally on the dog bed or floor, but she has scrambled onto the couch twice. Dottie does fine in the car, no trouble or reluctance to travel. Also was a trooper when we took her to the dog salon for a bath, a little reluctant to walk up the ramp but once in the tub, she was resigned to the bath and very cooperative. Dottie is just such a sweetheart, she is super friendly, calm demeanor, and very easy going. Loves to get scratches, especially on her belly!

Marvel (#170571) 

Marvel is a 4 year old black lab who weighs 69 pounds but can stand to gain a few. He is good with other dogs, unknown with cats and approved for kids 10 and up. Marvel is a great pup who is friendly and loves to be petted once he meets you. He had a rough life before he found his way to Lab Rescue. Once he realizes you aren't going to harm him he comes up to be petted and give you kisses. Ideal home would have a family that would give him lots of attention, training and a fenced yard that he can play ball in. Marvel is heartworm positive. Lab Rescue will provide Marvel's heartworm treatment, at no cost to the adopter, at one of our designated vets.

Update from Marvel's foster family on Sep 11, 2017: Marvel is a sweet lab, just looking for someone to love! His day consists of taking naps, giving kisses, having his head petted, and snuggling. He gets along very well with our other lab and is doing a great job keeping up with him. He even tries to steal his toys on occasion. He is definitely coming out of his shell! Marvel has also been practicing going for walks and does very well with a harness. He loves cheese, bologna, eggs and wet dog food. At night, Marvel has been sleeping in his crate and makes it through the night without a peep.

Update from Lucky's foster family Aug 2, 2017:
Lucky has been great ever since he got him in the car. He's a great car rider and gets in and lays down on the floor. Didn't seem to care for the window all too much. He is strong and walks best with a harness. Lucky is extremely responsive to the command "no", and already doing better with "sit" since he has been here a few hours. He is crate trained and so far doesn't mind being in there to test it out. Lucky is a good eater. He seems house trained as well! Someone is really going to love this dog. In 5 hours, we already think he's pretty amazing. He does like to follow you where ever you go, and he is a sweet little shadow. If that doesn't sell you on this dog, his little speckled feet will melt your heart. 

September 8, 2017 update: Lucky's a good boy. He's very sweet,loves people and is friendly with other dogs on walks. City sounds don't seem to bother him. He is house trained and he's doing well left uncrated. Not super into treats but will gently take one. He likes toys. Lucky will do best in a calmer household without a ton of new people coming and going.

Boo (#170584) 

Boo is a 7 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 60 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs and cats and is approved for all ages.  Boo has been working as a therapy dog for one of our other very shy fosters: she plays chase and has even taught her to play with a ball. We have been vacillating over announcing her since Trudy needs her so much. Boo was a little unsettled in the car our last trip- unlike the first time when she was perfectly comfortable, so we will take her for a few errands to see if she is more at ease. Boo has great recall in the yard and has much improved on leash now that she has gotten used to her surroundings. She snoozes next to Ramsey at night, but usually by herself on a dog bed or the Bruton futon during the day. She also knows "get the ____" and drops the ball or other toy ever so gently in my hand; if I don't catch it, she goes to get it and brings it to me. She also got to lick a toddler at the vet's during her visit yesterday- very, very gentle.

Cash is the male, submissive, so knows his singing role well! They lived with a cat that is very savvy and did fine. They are house trained, they have run of the house. They are accustomed to a mid-day break with a dog walker.

Davie (#170559) 

Davie is an 18 month old black neutered male. He weighs 55 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with cats and dogs.  Davie is approved for ages 10 and up.  Davie has come a long way in his temporary foster home with the local SWVA foster and their dogs. But, Davie is still shy/timid with new people and situations. He will need a patient family that will give him time, guidance, and gentle encouragement. Davie requires a fenced yard (physical fence) because he hesitates to potty on a leash. When outside the fence/home, Davie MUST BE leashed as he tends to shy away from introductions to new people. Just timid, never reactive. However, as evident by his time with the local foster, Davie will come around quickly. Once he knows you, he will be your shadow and cuddle with you on the bed or couch. He absolutely LOVES other dogs and must go to a home with another dog. Davie is completely trustworthy to roam free in the house.

After she realizes you are her friend all bets are off. She will crawl into your lap to get petted. She has started to play with toys and you have to laugh when you watch her go after them. An ideal home would be a family that has a fenced yard and would give her lots of attention and love.

Onyx is a sweet shy 18 month old 50 pound black male. He likes to go for walks, enjoys car rides and crates well. He would do well with other dogs, up to date on his shots and is approved for kids 10 and up.

September 6, 2017 Update from his foster: Onyx is doing well in his foster home. He loves playing with the fosters dogs and really looks to them for confidence. We think that Onyx will do better in a home where there is another dog, or someone who is home more than not due to the fact that he is not super confident and looks to humans or another dog for his cues. He is not crazy about the crate but sleeps on the couch with his foster sibling and does wonderfully!

Update from Rock's foster on Sep 11, 2017: Rocks has settled in well at his foster home, but is looking for his forever family. He gets along well with the resident labs, but needs some work on his manners. He is definitely enjoying all the attention he is receiving from our boys, ages 10 and 12. He walks well on a leash and loves to be outside. Rocks rides well in a car and doesn't mind wearing a harness to keep him safe. He is looking for an active family who can help him work off some of his energy. He loves to snuggle, give kisses, and follow Foster Mom around the house. He also loves his squeaky stuffed animal and deer antlers. He is house trained and sleeps well through the night.

He thinks giving you a Lablean is the best way to get his back and butt scratched. He isn't big on retrieving, will go see what you tossed but doesn't bring it back all the time. He takes treats gently, likes to be petted and loves belly rubs. He needs to have a home with a fenced yard so he can get exercise playing with his owners without wandering off.

Pacer is a 6 year old neutered black male who weighs about 50 pounds but could stand to gain a few. He is up to date on his shots and he is heartworm positive.  Pacer will be treated at one of Lab Rescue's authorized vets.  He is very laid back and learning the joys of retrieving stuffed toys. He does great in his crate and is very polite meeting other dogs at his foster's local dog park. Pacer knows sit, come and down. Most of all, he wants to be with his humans.

Update from Pacer's foster on Sept 2, 2017: He does very well in the crate. Most of the time he will let you know when he needs to go outside.  Pacer was left out of the crate yesterday while for 2.5 hours.  We came home to no disturbances or accidents. Pacer meets other dogs out walking very politely. Yesterday he went to the dog park for the first time and enjoyed meeting the other dogs and running around with them. Not sure he has been around cats much; sometimes he just stares at them and other times jumps and barks at them. 
Pacer is learning how to play with toys and has just recently learned that it is fun to retrieve stuffed toys that are thrown. For the most part he just wants to be with someone. Is that someone you?
