He is is also not crazy about the crate and we are working hard on that also to acclimate him more. He is very people oriented and friendly and loves attention. He is great with most dogs but prefers calmer dogs who are no so rambunctious and in his face. He loves toys and loves to play and appears to be house trained. He needs a physical 6 ft fence preferably, but other options will be considered.

I don't think Chase been on a leash very much (if at all), because he was pulling and ran in circles around me. So, he'll need some leash training. Chase rode very well in the crate, though. He never whined and settled down very quickly. I had to lift him in and out of my SUV because he wasn't quite sure about jumping. Chase was very friendly with everyone.

He is good with his toys and has stuffed animal that have survived for months which is unusual for a pup his age. He knows sit, come and sometimes down.  He pulls some on lead.  Duke would like to have a family that will give him love, attention and training.
Apr 19, 2017: Duke is a typical young lab who can get mouthy when excited; he just needs someone to be firm, yet patient, with him and use sound training techniques with him. He is a character and it's fun to watch him blossom.
Mar 2, 2017: Duke is delightful, full of personality, he loves to be with you and to get petted. He likes to play with kids and is active but not hyper. He is just learning to retrieve, chases the ball and brings it back once in a while. He is good with his toys and has stuffed animal that have survived for months which is unusual for a pup his age. Duke would like to have a family that will give him love, attention and training. He needs a fence either physical or underground fence.
Jun 16, 2017: Duke is a typical young lab who can get mouthy when excited. He needs an adopter experienced with young sporting dogs who will be firm, yet patient, with him and give training a high priority. He is one handsome dog. He will have a training addendum because he is an exuberant boy- delightful, but exuberant. Young energetic dogs must have training and adequate exercise; Duke settles right down after he has had adequate interactive exercise. Several walks a day will not be sufficient for a young lab. Young dogs are going to push the limit until boundaries are set; training also provides focus and patience.

Helen (#160335) 

Helen is a 6 year old spayed chocolate female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  She is approved for kids aged 10 and up and should go to a home without cats.  She weighs 60 lbs Her blindness is caused by diabetes which is now under control; she will need to be on insulin injections and blood glucose monitoring for the rest of her life. In mid- June, Lab Rescue will have surgery performed that will, we hope, restore the sight in one of her eyes.  Helen is learning to love toys and is getting healthier every day.  She's  bundle of love and energy and we can't wait to see what happens once her sight is restored.

Update from Helen's Foster Family - Apr 26, 2017: Helen is a six year old lovable chocolate girl! She has blossomed into a snuggle bug who is the envy of the neighborhood on leash and who loves to retrieve. She rides great in the car and thinks squeaky balls are the best. Helen prefers to be the center of attention, so she would like to be a solo dog. She loves to be with her people, inside and out, so she doesn’t need a fence and has no issues with stairs. Helen not only likes to be with her humans, but needs someone with a short workday or one who doesn’t work outside the home, since she needs two insulin shots a day on a regular schedule. She is perfect for her shots and is a very well-regulated diabetic. House Manners? Absolutely! You don’t need to worry about food disappearing off the counter, or leaving your shoes on the floor or holes in the back yard. She's a very well behaved girl!

Watch Rocks on  

Update from Rocks himself on July 30, 2017: Hi, I'm Rocks! Everyone tells me I'm so handsome - I have a pretty chocolate / reddish tint to my dark coat and the cutest painted paws. Even though I'm 4, you wouldn't know it! I LOVE to snuggle with my foster mom. Sometimes I think I'm a lap dog... or a human, I can't decide. I love hugs and kisses. Going to the dog park is the best. I get to run around with a bunch of friends and get extra petting from all the humans. I'm not a huge ball dog, but I love my toys, especially my squeaky duck. I'll play fetch with him. Then, I like to pass out on the couch and snore - I'm pretty cute. The city can be a little overwhelming for me, and sometimes loud noises scare me, but I'm working on being a tough guy. I get a little grumpy when my foster mom leaves me home alone - how dare she! But I usually scarf down a peanut butter kong. Otherwise, she takes me on car rides with her which is no problem. Oh, and I have the softest ears ever. I'd love to meet you!

Since he just got neutered Thursday so he is not allowed to run around with his foster sister so we went for a walk up and down the street. The cool floor is now a comfy spot to lay and he even blends in so no one can bother him. He needs a little work on a leash but picked up the walk quickly so I believe he will be a fast leaner. He gets along with my other dogs and is a happy go lucky kinda guy. He will need some work on manners and the art of sharing toys but is eager to please and very responsive to correction. He already knows how to sit and give paw so he is well on his way! He is such a sweetie.

He wants to meet every dog while walking and thinks everyone is his friend. He didn't even react when one dog growled at him, just stood there wagging his tail.

July 31, 2017: Caroline went to a foster and changed to a typical 6 month old puppy. She is outgoing loves to play and to be with you to get loved on. She met the foster 3 dogs and cats with no problem/ She found the kiddie pool in the yard, her routine is to run over hop in, walk around in a circle for a couple of turns then flop down and splash then get up hop out and run around the yard. Then repeat this. She tried to play with one of the smaller kittens and got her nose scratched so she rethought that and is now giving them a berth. She plays well with the resident dog. Last night she slept on a dog bed in the fosters bed room without a problem. She stayed there all night, she didn't move until this morning when her foster asked her if she wanted to go out.

She greets her humans with constant tailing wagging when we come into a room that we just left. She has a cuddle content purr. When we are outside she enjoys romping around the yard. She heads to the kitchen door to politely inform us when she needs to go out. She recently surprised us by parking herself next to her separate food dish in the dining room, while watching me begin the pup meal prep, even though her resident sibs park themselves in the kitchen.
 This is a sharp and savy girl. Diamond sometimes beads off to the open crate, when she wants a a bit of private time, and sleeps all night next to resident dogs in her bed in foster folks' room. We are working on her leash skills, this is a new experience for her, and she is a strong girl, full of adventures to discover. Diamond has learned how to share toys politely, wait turn for treats, and enjoy popcorn toss pup parties.

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.  Little Man weighs 56 lbs. Little Man is new to life outside of a pen and can be scared of new things. He's adjusting well in his foster home, but he will do best walking on a harness as he's never been on a leash prior to life with Lab Rescue.  He's come a long way since he arrived at his foster but he'll still need an adopter who is understands everything is brand new to him! He's very sweet.


Update from Foster on July 31, 2017: When Little Man came to our home a little over 2 weeks ago he was timid and scared of so much. He has come so far since then. Yesterday our family had our friends over for a bbq- a family of 7 and their playful and very active dog. Little Man handled it beautifully, a true gentleman! Sometimes he watched the other 2 dogs from afar, and other times he got right into the mix, wrestling and chasing. It was so great to see him blossoming. This morning, he is still wiped out! We cannot believe that this boy has not been snatched up yet. 
 
Update from Little Man's foster on July 28, 2017: If you and/or your pup are looking for a snuggle buddy, Little Man just might be your guy! He is a lover!Originally we thought he was black, but he's actually a very dark chocolate. After likely being a primarily outdoor dog, Little Man loves to be inside the house in any comfy spot he can find. He walks very well on a EZ walk harness. We are working on some weight gain; he LOVED LOVED LOVED the Sunday morning sausage! 

Update from Little Man's foster on July 22, 2017: Little man has been with his foster for a few days and is doing wonderful. The scared, shy boy is beginning to trust and come out of his shell. Sudden movements and noises do scare him and he will cower but quickly recovers with a gentle voice of reassurance. He walks great on leash and enjoys several walks a day. While on walks he has met other dogs with zero hesitation and lots of tail wags. He is very affectionate and loves to be petted and scratched on his head and neck. At night he snuggles in bed with one of the teenagers or curls up on a dog bed in their room. He doesn't want to go into the crate but does not seem to need one as he has not disturbed anything or had any accidents what so ever. Little Man is not overly playful but does enjoy the companionship of the resident lab and likes to curl up with him on the dog bed.

He has started to play with toys and likes tug toys. When you're petting him he will relax and lay down then rolls over so he can get his belly rubbed, which he will let you do as long as you want. He gets along well with other dogs. He would like an active family that has a yard for him to play in and who will give him the attention, training, and exercise he needs. Camelot needs fence either physical or underground as he was a stray.

Bo is a 2 yr old chocolate neutered male.  He weighs 60 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Bo is approved for ages 8 and up.  Bo - or Bo-Bo as I call him, is a dark chocolate male who has been an absolutely wonderful guy to foster. He was so very skinny when I first got him and he is now at a healthy weight, looking handsome and playing with my other dogs like they are all long lost friends. He is an absolute love bug who insists on sitting on the couch with me and following me everywhere I go. He is a very loyal fellow who listens when you tell him to sit, come and get in your kennel. He doesn't bark much unless it's at the weed whacker - he doesn't like it and I think it's because it scares him. He has a very strong bond with my other foster dog and they are like two peas in a pod. Best Buddies! He is a very special dog that is one of my favorite fosters that I have had over the years. He would love and deserves a very special and loving forever family.




Buddy #6 (#170476)

He is very friendly and likes to stay close so you won't get lost. Buddy likes to retrieve and play with toys. Since he has been here we've found out that he likes to play and that he likes to go for rides. We took him for walks and found out he is good on a lead using an Easy Walk Harness which I used to take the pressure off his neck. He would love a home with a yard to stretch his legs while he explores. H needs a fence either physical or underground so he won't wander off.

McGregor (#170097) 

McGregor is a 1 year old red fox male.  He weighs about 50 lbs, and is up to date on his vaccines.  McGregor has been treated for heartworm and is now in his post-treatment rest period.  He's house and crate trained, with lovely manners. McGregor will do best in an adult only household, and must go to a home where there are other dogs. He's unknown with cats. This adorable little guy needs a patient family who can help him blossom, and other dogs to help show him the ropes.  

Update from McGregor's foster on May 18, 2017: McGregor has arrived at at his fosters home and is settling in nicely and learning the ritual of the house. When McGregor first arrived, he was very shy and didn't want to interact with anyone. He quickly over came his shyness with the pack and engaged in play on day 2. Learning to trust the humans took a little longer but, by day four he let me pet him and now it is a daily occurrence. His favorite spot is behind the ears. 
McGregor will warm up to you- on his own time. Humans just need to let him be for a bit so that he figures out that you are okay. He is excellent in the crate and goes right in. He currently spends the night on a dog bed in his foster Mama's room and is very happy there. He hasn't learned about toys yet but, he does show interested in a ball when thrown and I think it is just a matter of time before he learns how to play fetch. 
McGregor loves to be outside. He is learning however, that the inside might be a little better and comes in for a treat or two. Speaking of treats, he takes them oh so gently. He is 100% potty trained. He is pretty calm for a one year old and is perfectly behaved in the house despite his age. I can't forget to mention his good looks as well. He is simply adorable.

Update from Mike's foster family - June 24, 2017:

Mike is adjusting well to life in a foster home. He enjoys the comings and goings and is always on hand to meet and greet anyone who walks in the door. He is a small guy who is good on leash and really enjoys sniffing his way along wherever he goes. At 52 pounds he looks like a pup, but behaves like a big boy. He has free run of the house when his foster family is away and does not chew inappropriately or have accidents. Mostly, Mike likes to be with his people and get some loving.  He gets along very well with the two resident labs even though he does not join in when they bark at people walking by or up to the house. This boy is a perfect little pet who is ready to meet his forever family.

She goes outside to play a little but prefers to be inside where it's cool and she can lay on her bed.  Bella went to a foster where she has made herself at home. Foster says my new foster Bella, has had a rough life so far, but she could not be sweeter. She is totally house trained, small and so easy. She sleeps, eats, plays and follows me and my resident labs everywhere. We've learned sit and how to navigate a doggy door. We are working on walking on leash, but she just wants to please.

Update from their foster family - 6/13/2014

Marley and Ziggy are handsome and wonderful dogs who just need lots of attention and exercise to make up for not having that for awhile. With a break in the humidity they got to enjoy FIVE walks, which was pretty much the best day ever as far as they were concerned. Nothing tires these two out – they would be ready for whatever action you were interested in! They are still in need of lots of attention, and don’t care about your personal space; they love to get as close as possible and stare into your eyes and/or use their nuzzles to get you petting them. That being said they have gotten lots more relaxed already and enjoy the routine. Marley is a little more independent and will now go in the yard or another room by herself for awhile. They listen well and understand lots, including “outside”. They are both excellent at catching treats mid-air that are tossed to them. Marley loves to pick up as many toys as possible at one time, then show you her accomplishment. Ziggy can fit 2 tennis balls in his mouth. They continue to have excellent manners in the house and don’t counter surf or get onto any furniture. They also don’t jump up on.  If Marley thinks you are ignoring her she will come put her big head in your lap; Ziggy prefers kissing. It’s hard to give attention to just one because if the other sees it going on they use their entire body to wedge in on the action! They definitely do not like cats, bunnies nor squirrels. They are both good at “sit” and “come” and respond to their names. 

They can’t wait to get weighed in because we suspect they have already lost a few pounds; and speaking of the diet, neither one will touch a carrot, and only Ziggy is up for some frozen green beans. They do bark to “protect” the house from other dogs walking by, but stop quickly when told to. Ziggy and Marley love to go for car rides and are great in the car! They enjoyed a dip in the neighbor's pool and both enjoyed swimming! Bottom line is that these two are eager to please, but big and active and so need a big space to play and lots of exercise. They need owners who can be home more than not in the beginning to help them understand that they don’t need to worry about being ignored any more. Oh, and they will also need one really big dog bed to share – they won’t sleep apart.

Update from Marla's foster - June 3, 2015:

Marlee knows sit and come and pulls a little on lead. 

Update from Marlee's foster family 6/4/2014

Marlee has settled in incredibly well! She is now a tail-wagging romp, around the yard, run to greet her fosters and a give them a big kiss kind of gal. In short, she has had a very good transition. She has been very friendly to all she has met - both human and canine (a large golden retriever). She is gentle and a bit shy, but she has warmed up to us. She's a sweetie and wonderful to have around! She is gentle and a bit shy, but she has warmed up to her fosters and is slowly expanding her roaming area in the house. She does not like getting into the car, but taking her to fun places should help. Marlee is gorgeous with piercing eyes. She has a birth deformity in one paw and walks fine but will switch to a hop at faster speeds with her front two paws landing simultaneously. She has not ventured up the stairs yet but has no problem with the deck steps (two) and can run with ease. She pulls a bit on a leash but does well with an Easy Walk. She comes when called, is house and crate trained.  Marlee loves to get petted and if you stop her nose will come up and bump your arm for a reminder that you were petting her.

Mariner is an 8 year old black spayed female.  She weighs 65 pounds and is approved for kids 10 and up.  She is good with other dogs and is heartworm negative.   Mariner is a sweet and shy girl who is learning the joys of being an indoor dog.  She is very well behaved in the house and is not crated.  She walks well on leash, but does get startled easily, so walking with a harness is best.  Mariner enjoys the company of other calm dogs to hang out with and take the lead from.  Mariner needs a single family home in a quiet neighborhood and a calm living environment.  Her new home must have a fenced yard.   

From Mariner's Foster Family - Sep 25, 2015: Sweet Mariner is the best little Lab looking for a new forever family. She's so happy - a master at wagging - and her house skills are perfect (shh...don't tell people with countersurfers but there's been an open bag of dogfood on the kitchen floor for two weeks) 

Now, I know that everyone hates the easy going labs so I'll spell out a Mariner day. 

Wake up, wag at foster mom, cruise the backyard, supervise breakfast prep, eat breakfast, cruise the backyard and keep foster mom company while she has her morning coffee. Nap until we go out again and we cruise the backyard *new twist to this this week, nap until we go out again, repeat dinner, repeat wag, cruise etc...cookies and cuddles before bed...zzzzz. You can see how hard she is to take care of. 

Our new twist to cruising the backyard. Mariner has become part of the cleaning crew. She loves to go out and find the toys in the backyard and bring them back into the house. I had NO IDEA there were that many balls and toys back there but they're slowly coming inside. Jake says 'thank you Mariner...now mom can clean the balls so I can bring them out again'. 

Her only need is a fenced yard because she really, really doesn't want to do the big walks but she loves cruising the yard.
