Boozie (#180424)

Boozie is an 11 month old black neutered male.  He weighs 43 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Boozie is super sweet.  He is quick learner, and has quickly learned which furniture he is allowed on and which he is not. We’ve walked him with a harness, and he does great. Doesn’t pull at all. He was indifferent to two German shepherds we saw and interested and quiet to another dog about his size. He has not had any accidents inside and seems to be housetrained. He loves food! He wants to be close to us, and will sit in our laps if we let him. He’s sprawled out on another couch next to me right now. He doesn’t know what to make of the dog toys. We’ll try to keep encouraging him to play with them. He did well in the car. He's going to make a great addition to a family!

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




Dove (#180428)

Dove is an 8 yr old chocolate neutered male.  He weighs 72 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Dove he is a very active and friendly 8 year old. He greets everyone with great enthusiasm. Dove is a great retriever and just loves his squeaky toys. He has a gentle mouth as he took treats gently.  He knows sit, down and come and is not a jumper. He pulls a little on the leash, so an easy walk harness may benefit dove. He is keeping his room clean at the kennel, so he’s probably housetrained.

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




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. She bounces when she runs, and has a sweet playful streak. She’s practically always happy!

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. 

Update from Gracie's Foster Family - Mar 15, 2018: Gracie has recovered from her surgeries and is ready to find her forever home. She loves to nap, and roam around the yard investigating and sniffing everything. She gets along well with the six other dogs at her foster home, though she doesn’t really play with them, and 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.

An update from Luna/Shiloh in her own words - Jun 8, 2018: Je me presente: Shilo!

My adopter loved me dearly and cared for me very well, but she developed this very bad sickness and had to move somewhere they could help her take care of herself. I have learned to give gentle kisses and I have a very soft mouth for treats. I can wait to go potty up to ten hours; I am crate trained, but there really isn’t any reason to crate me. 

I am great in bed, unless I bring a tennis ball with me, then I keep you up all night stripping off the fuzz. I would be a terrific dock dog if I liked the water because I love to run up and down docks. I love to play fetch with my tennis balls, except I don’t bring them all the way back to you- yet. I am working on a very long leash right trying to earn my fosters’ trust off leash. Cars are cool means of transportation, but if I catch my reflection in the windshield, I just might bark at it. Some days I just feel like barking at stuff, but most days I am very quiet. The fosters are working on increasing my quiet days, but for now they think it would be best if I didn’t go to a home with too many close neighbors.

I am a little pully on leash, especially at first, but once I figure out it isn’t a race, I slow down. My mom used to walk me on her electric scooter so I do know how to be good. I am very good with other dogs and like to play with them, and I submit if they want to be the boss. I am waiting for my cat test at my fosters so will have to let you know how that goes. I haven’t lived full time with children, but I have loved having them visit and I adored the neighbor girls who came to help my mom. 



Piggy (#180369) and Pancake (#180368)

Both are a little confused as to why they are in Lab Rescue and where their family is, but they seem to be doing well and are trying to make the best of their circumstances. They are looing for a family that can give them the love they are used to. They require a fence and must go to a single-family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area. These guys are crate trained and know some commands. 

Update from this pair's foster family - Jun 11, 2018: Piggy and Pancake charmed the crowds at the AALD but are still looking for their forever family. These two pocket sized pooches are fun loving, sweet and absolutely adorable. They're ready to provide years of happiness, silly antics, and kisses!  Piggy and Pancake are inseparable. They must have eye contact with each other at all times.

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.

He likes to retrieve and is good at it. Likes to play in the water probably will enjoy swimming. Wants to be with you and get petted and thinks ear rubs are great. He will de-stuff toys to get at the squeaker. He is strong and will need exercise, walks will not be enough for this young and energetic dog. He would love an active family that have a yard to play in so he can get the exercise he needs.

Brutus is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 6 and up.




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

He is a strong boy and walks best with an easy walk harness because he pulls. Leash walking appears to be new to this boy, but he is a quick study. Hershey will need another Heartworm test in six months (November 22, 2018), as we don't know if he was on Heartworm preventatives before he came to Lab Rescue

Update from Hershey's foster family - May 30, 2018: Although Hershey is 7 years old, don't let that frosted muzzle fool you. He plays like a 2 year old. He loves to fetch tennis balls and will have two in his mouth at a time. He will bring the ball back to you and drop it at your feet then sit waiting for you to throw it again. Hershey loves the water. He will drink from the water hose, chase the hose and play in the kiddy pool. Hershey is a fun guy and will provide hours of entertainment. He would love a family who has access to water and many tennis balls.

Hammer lived with another dog in his previous home. He needs to go to a single-family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area but does not require a fenced yard.

He is current on vaccines, heartworm negative, good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for humans ages 10 and up. He must go to a single family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area.

Raven #2 (#180401)

Raven is a 10 month old, spayed black female who weighs 51 pounds and is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. She is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for humans ages 10 and up. Despite her young age, Raven already knows several commands and is great with recal when she goes off leash. She has lived outside most of her life so she will need patience learning good house manners, but she is such a smart girl, it will not take her long to learn any new rules. Raven is a sweet girl who is good meeting new people. She must go to a single-family, detached home in the suburbs or a rural area.

She enjoys playing with other dogs once she warms up to them.  Lily has no requirement, but potential adopters must understand that she can get over just about any fence, but will only do it to get to her people. Supervised play in a fenced in yard or leash walks for this girl with be the best way to exercise. She must go to a single-family, detached home in a rural or suburban area. Lily will need a follow up HW test in Nov. 2018 as we have no prior proof of preventatives.




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.

Update from Betty's foster family - May 15, 2018: Betty continues to enjoy her walks and loves to run around the yard with the young resident dog. When she's not playing outside, she naps next to the senior dog on his big bed. She has discovered toys and likes to play tug-o-war with the younger resident dog. She is sweet with everyone she meets, knows the sit and down commands and lies quietly under her side of the table when the family is eating dinner. She sleeps through the night and has a healthy appetite. Betty is a gem. 

Update from Betty's foster family - May 9, 2018: Betty is of course a sweetheart. The vet mentioned that she could be around 6-12 months, but of course nobody knows. Right now she is having a good time. We have learned so much about her in just a few days. She has an epic lab lean. She loves to snuggle on the couch with you. She will play with the resident dog for hours, at times it seems they're playing in slow motion. She enjoys going for hikes and rides well in the car. She doesn't jump up on you. She is 100% housetrained and crate trained, and will actually go nap in the crate with the door open. She is way too interested in the cat. She also gets along with the resident senior dog and takes treats super gently. If you have any questions about her, feel free to contact me. 

Update from Betty's foster family - May 4, 2018: Betty has arrived in her temporary foster home, and she's making herself comfortable. She has met the younger resident dog and seemed interested in playing with her, but there were so many things to explore that she's saving that for later. So far we know that she knows the "sit" command and loves treats. Betty is considered a hospice case, although we don't know how much time she may have. She is living in the moment, and right now the moment is good, full of treats, AC on this hot day, and many adventures ahead. More on this precious girl as we get to know her. Hoping that some applicant will fall in love with her!

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.

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!

Mac (#180414)

He is current on his vaccines and heartworm negative. He does know a few commands: sit, come, and down. He is working on stay.

Update from Rosie's foster family - Jun 20, 2018: Rosie is definitely enjoying some good R&R at her foster home after many years of being a mommy dog and recently undergoing surgery to be spayed. She loves sitting calmly by anyone’s side and having her head patted. A belly rub is one step better and she will gladly roll over for that! She is an incredibly gentle, sweet, old soul. She walks nicely on the leash and gets along well with her two foster brothers. I think they are competing for who can be the most chill and low key! She is house trained and does not need to be crated. She sleeps through the night on a dog bed. She is a good listener and always comes when called – though she is rarely far from your side anyway. No interest in bones or toys yet but she is still recovering and learning the ropes. 

Jun 12, 2018: Rosie is a sweet chocolate that really is good for your heart! She’s all done being a full-time mommy and is ready to find a home where she can relax and enjoy the luxurious life every lab deserves.

Luke (#180002) 

Luke and her (yes, she’s female) four brothers and sisters were surrendered after their family lost their home.

She is mellow and affectionate and loves to be touched by human hands. She doesn’t need to be crated: she does fine loose or would be fine gated off.

Luke is a pretty good passenger. She just sits back, occasionally looking out the window. She does okay on a leash but does much better once she is comfortable with her person and surroundings. Good with other calm dogs, unknown with cats, approved for age 10 and up. Luke is a 12 year old black female who weighs 51 lbs, up to date on vaccinations and heartworm negative.
