Django and Maverick are 3 yr old neutered black males.  They both weigh 60 lbs and are up to date on vaccinations.  Django is heartworm negative and Maverick is heartworm positive.  Lab Rescue will pay for treatment if treated at one of our authorized vets.  They are good with dogs and cats but are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.  Django and Maverick are approved for ages 4 and up.  Djangle & Maverick are siblings, owners had Maverick since he was a puppy and got Djangle when he was 6 months old when he was returned to the breeder who asked them if they would take him.  They are sweet, kind, loving dogs who love attention and to play. They love to play together and Djangle had recently shown Maverick how to get under the fence and go to the marsh for a quick swim before coming back home and into the yard.  They never figured out that they got caught because they were soaking wet and had muddy feet.
They are great dogs who are friendly and love to get petted.  Django is the leader and Maverick follows him.  They will chase a ball or toy it doesn’t matter who gets to the toy first Django will bring it back most of the time. They know sit come, are working on other commands. They will have a Training Addendums. They walk okay on lead separately but when you take them out together they each try and be the lead.  They are house and crate trained, owner did not use a crate, but left them in the laundry room if they were going to be gone a long time.  They would like to have a family that is active and can give them love, attention, training and exercise so they will thrive.

Update from Django and Maverick's Foster Family - Mar 13, 2017: Django and Maverick are sweet wiggle worms and very good boys. They are learning that elk antlers are fun. Not sure they have had many toys in their life. They are happy to go into their crates when asked. The hardest part of crating them is keeping them from going into the same crate. We always have to coax one out to go into the second crate. It's very cute. They are affectionate and love to be touched by any and all of their humans. They have gotten along well with the resident dogs.

There were no accidents in her first day, which is super for a dog who has spent her life outside.  She has checked out just about every toy and bone in the dog apartment, which she shares with 2 elderly distinguished gentlemen.  She play bows to them and tries to engage them, but so far, she has only been allowed to run alongside one of them while he chases HIS ball.  Chavva did steal the ball once but after she got the furrowed brow and 2 grunts, she didn't touch it again.

Watch her at: https://youtu.be/NNDyqhXwTQI

Update from Chavvah's Foster - Jan 28, 2017: Chavva just celebrated her 9th birthday on 1/27/2016. She hops up and down like Peppy LaPew when she sees or hears children. In just a week, she learned to ring the bells at the door to go outside. She is tolerant of baths, but just can't find a way to love them. She isn't a barker even when other dogs are barking at her on walks. She is very interested in squirrels, and it isn't to find out where they store their food. Chavvah has reached her goal weight of 65#!!!

Another dog would be a plus.

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.

Jett (#170028)

 
Jett is a handsome 6 year old neutered black male who weighs 74 pounds. He is good with dogs and approved for ages 10 and up. Because he chases squirrels and deer  with such enthusiasm and vigor, Jett is probably not a good candidate to live with cats. He is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. Jett loves to run and play and must go to a detached single-family home in the suburbs or a rural area. He will require a physically fenced yard where he can play.

Update from Jett's foster family - Feb. 8, 2017: Jett is a handsome six year old boy who loves walks and car rides and has excellent house manners. He is a daddy's boy who also likes to help repairmen. He loves string cheese, cooked brocolli, apples and peanut butter. He can be strong on the leash, but was also walked off-leash quite a bit so he could stretch his legs. Jett loves his belly rubs and does not get up on furniture unless invited- or sometimes when being silly. Jett loves to play tug but he missed the "retriever" gene. He likes toys with squeakers and likes to tear the stuffing and squeakers out of his toys. Jett loves to open packages that are given to him (Bark Box, Christmas presents) but he does not bother anything that is not his (socks, shoes, pillows, etc.) 

Jett has a fairly extensive vocabulary and understands: Here (come), Sit (can't guarantee "stay"), Down, Roll over (with coaxing), Give me a paw/ shake, Leave it, Want to go walk/ride/park/outside, Want some dinner? Want a treat?, Want a bath? (Likes baths), We're going to bed. He knows that "we're going to work/school/store" means he's not going. 




Marsh (#160014) 

Marsh is a 4 year old neutered yellow male. He is current on vaccines and is heartworm negative. Marsh weighs 64 pounds.  He loves to play with squeaky toys and receive belly rubs.  He would love to be the center of his family's world, or share them with a calm friend. Marsh is very well-behaved and is learning commands. Marsh needs to go to a no cat home.  Marsh loves being with people and is very well trained.  He loves to pay and would prefer a family who works from home or isn't gone for a long workday. He'll reward you with love and snuggles.  Marsh doesn't like having other dogs jumping in his face and is not a dog park kinda guy.  He bonds very deeply with his humans and loves to go for long walks rather than doggie romps.

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.

Kandi (#160200) 

Kandi is a six year old spayed yellow female who weighs 62 pounds and walks nicely on leash. She is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Kandi would like to be the center of her families universe as a solo dog and will chase cats so 'no cats' for her.  She is approved for ages 10 and up and needs a home with a physical fence.  She is a super gentle and laid back girl who crates well for the work day and has nice manners. Kandi loves people. And she also loves counter surfing, so her forever family will have to join the clean counter club! Although she is a counter surfer, Kandi will not try to take food that humans are trying to eat but will only use the powers of her pleading puppy dog stare to procure food in this situation. Kandi does not try to get on the furniture but enjoys lounging on a comfy dog bed.  

Kandi has age related arthritis and is on glucosamine supplements. She would prefer a home with limited stairs. 

Update from Kandi's foster on Jan 5, 2017: Kandi is a moderate energy beautiful girl. She has great inside manners and does not counter surf or beg. She sleeps beautifully through the night and doesn't get on furniture. Kandi likes to hang out with her people wherever they are in the house. She loves to look out the windows or storm door probably because she loves the outside!! Kandi gets very excited when she realizes that it is time to go outside and will carry her "kitty" or "bear" around in anticipation. Kandi is a good walker and walks best on a harness. She has a strong prey drive and will need to be redirected when she sees a fox, squirrel, or small dog on walks. She has some interest in bones and balls and will play by herself by throwing them in the air. She is very smart and knows "wait," "come," "sit," "down," "paw," "speak" for a treat, "give," "roll over." She has had full house privileges for a few hours and she was fine. Her allergies are being managed by daily allergy medicine and grain free chicken and turkey dog food.

He needs a home with a family that will give him love and attention and has a fenced yard for him to play in.  He will make some lucky family a wonderful companion.

Nina (#170044)

Nina is a black spayed female who is one year old and weighs 49 pounds. She is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages ten and up. She is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. This petite girl was stray to the shelter but somewhere along the way she learned excellent house manners. Little Nina needs a single family detached home in the suburbs or a rural area with a physically fenced yard so she can play and run.

Updates from Nina's foster family - Feb 3, 2017: Nina will thrive in a home where she can wear the crown or as a single dog. But with those big brown puppy dog eyes, its next to impossible to turn down any requests she has. She's a young playful pup who can hold her own wrestling with her 90 lb foster brother, but she also entertains herself with toys or by chewing on bones. She'll ask you to play tog o' war and roll over for belly rubs too. After a playful romp, she'll curl up for a well deserved siesta. Nina takes a while to warm up to strangers and will be happiest as a homebody. She has wonderful house manners and doesn't need to be crated. 

Jan 27, 2017: Nina is a 1 year old, dainty little princess who loves to be within a paw's reach of her people. She has lovely house manners and kindly asks to go out with a paw on your knee. She knows her commands and will come, sit, lay down just for the praise, no treats needed! Nina is bit skittish in new places and takes a second to warm up to strangers but would love to make your house her home. When she's not snuggled into a petite little ball of fur she holds her own playing with her brute of a foster brother - then goes right back to snuggling and asking for belly rubs. 

Jan 23, 2017: Nina is a happy, smart, high energy, and gentle girl. She is affectionate, but does not lick. She likes to cuddle, sleep beside you in bed, and likes kisses on her head. She is housetrained, and she will let you know she needs to go out by putting her paw/leg on you and pulling, as if to say: Lets go! She has not been crated, she has had the run of the house with my 3 dogs. She is a typical high energy, young dog. She has become wrestling playmates with my Chi/JRT boy, and Nina does not hurt him, she rolls over and lets him be the big guy. After a 15-20 minute wrestling session or some fetch time outside, or some tug-o-war while watching TV, she is then content to lay down. She likes to be wherever you are - in the floor next to a recliner, in the kitchen floor while cooking, or relaxing beside you in bed. She prefers squeaky toys over tennis balls. She did fine walking on the leash. Nina knows how to sit. She needs room to romp and play and run. She can be shy in new situations and when meeting new people, but she warms up fast. 





Tinsley (#170069)

 

Tinsley is a 2 year old spayed black female who weighs 51 lbs.  She is current with her shots and is heartworm negative.  Tinsley is good with dogs; unknown with cats; and approved for kids 5 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes or townhouses in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.  Home must have a physical fence.  

 

Tinsley is a very cute, pocket size lab.  She can be a little shy at first but warms up quickly.  Tinsley is a low energy dog who loves to lie by your side or cuddle up beside you on the sofa.  She has never been crated but has great house manners so it really isn’t necessary.  Tinsley is used to having someone home all the time so she would do best in a family where everyone is not gone for long workdays.   This lovely lady sits and waits politely for her meals and sleeps soundly through the night (preferably with her human).



Jingle (#160811)

Jingle is an 18 month old neutered black male who weighs in at 55 pounds and is good with kids ages 8 and up. He is good with dogs and unknown with cats.  Jingle must go to a rural or suburban single family, detached home. He is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. 

Update from Jingle's foster family - Jan 10, 2017:

Jingle has been doing great since arrival at his foster home. We have slowly introduced him to 2 Labs, 1 Walker hound and a Jack Russell and he has made friends with all of them. He loves to play tug of war with other dogs and chew up stuffed toys. He should NOT be crated because it makes him very anxious and he will bark and try to get out so he can be with you - but no worries he doesn't need crated because he is a very good boy free in the house alone with other dogs as long as you don't let the garbage can within his reach- he loves coffee grounds! He is a loving and attentive boy who will fall asleep at your feet or in your lap if you invite him onto the couch with you. He is not a big fan of staying outside to play in snow, he would rather lay on his dog bed by the fireplace. He knows sit, shake and down and walks pretty nicely on a leash. Jingle would probably do best in a home with another dog or with someone who is home a lot. 



Ebony (#170066)

Ebony is an 8 month old spayed black female.  She 42 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Ebony is approved for ages 10 and up.  Ebony is a pocket-sized girl with beautiful, big eyes.  She's a bit shy at first, but she does warm up slowly.  Ebony wants that furever family to give her lots of love and attention.

Update from Ebony's foster family - Feb 7, 2017:

Another day, another snuggle. You too can make your very own Ebony sandwich if you adopt this adorable girl. She knows sit, and will sit when asked, before all meals, and for you to put her leash on. She is house trained, and oh, did I mention she likes to cuddle? Humans or dogs, this girl just wants to curl up in a lap. And when she's not snuggling, she runs and romps and plays like the puppy she is. Today she discovered the toy bin and thinks squeakies are the best. She sleeps through the night, goes into her crate for a treat and is such a quiet girl. She was initially unsure if the stairs, but figured them out in just 24 hours. Ebony is curious and smart, and so full of love! 

Feb 5, 2017: Ebony was sprung from the vet and arrived st her foster home this afternoon. She rides like a dream in the car. After a quick dinner, she happily met the resident dogs and then curled up on the couch for a cuddle with the pack and a nap while foster mom watches the Super Bowl commercials. She's shy and cautious at first, but responds quickly to a soft voice, sweet affection, and maybe some yummy treats. Ebony is so quiet and sweet - we can already tell that she's going to make a wonderful addition to some lucky family. 




June (#170068)

June is an 11 month old spayed black female who weighs 56 pounds. She is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. June is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up. She must go to a detached single-family home in a rural or suburban neighborhood and must have a fenced yard.

Update from June's foster mom - Feb 6, 2017:  June is smart as a whip; very playful; happy; affectionate; and curious. She loves all toys and to retrieve and just spent her first full day in a very large crate in the living room with her foster brother when foster mom went to work. She sleeps in bed with her foster mom and runs up and down the stairs to check on her foster brother on the main level in the morning. She is a young girl and needs consistent training. She needs a fenced yard and diligent humans and she will try to sneak out doors when you open them. She is working on her leash manners and walks best on an Easy Walk harness. She is also working on sit. 

Feb 2, 2017: June is a beautiful young pup looking for her new forever family! June is a great, friendly girl. She definitely is still a total puppy. Like all young dogs she will benefit from going to an obedience class. She really is a wonderful dog. She loves to play and have fun. She likes to give kisses. June loves other dogs and did well with her dog test at the shelter. No cat history so cats are unknown. No kid history so approved for kids 10 and up.
