Our Labs Available for Adoption

The labs listed on this page are always changing. Every day labs are adopted and new labs join us while they wait for their new forever home. If you are interested in adopting one of these labs from Lab Rescue, please fill out our adoption application and send it to us online (or by fax or mail). Lab Rescue of the LRCP asks that you read about the entire adoption process before submitting your application. We often receive questions about why so few labs are approved for young children. You can read about how we make that determination in the adoption process section of the website. Please note that the website is not the most up to date source of information. Some labs may have been adopted before the website shows them as adopted.

Lab Rescue LRCP rescues and places dogs in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and northeast North Carolina (30 miles east of I-95 and north of the Pamlico Sound). Adopters must travel to Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC, with their family – human and canine – to meet the dog they want to adopt.

If you live outside of the Lab Rescue service area and would like to adopt, please review the list of rescues elsewhere in the country, available at www.thelabradorclub.com, do a Google search on Lab Rescue and your location, or search on Petfinder.com or Adoptapet.com to find a rescue who places Labs near you.

BJ (#170085)

BJ is a 1 yr old yellow male.  He weighs 38 lbs and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up.  BJ arrived last weekend and during his wellness exam, it was discovered he has a significant heart murmur, grade 5 out of 6.  We visited the cardiologist and the news wasn't good.  He cannot be treated with medications, nor can he have surgery.  Somehow, all the dysfunctional components of his little heart have managed to find a way to work together.  We don't know how long BJ will be with us.  It could be months, or it could be years.  Of course, he doesn't know what's going on and he's living in the moment acting like a typical puppy.  He loves to go for walks, play, eat treats, but most of all he loves to cuddle with anyone who will let him jump on their lap.  He also knows how to sit to take treats very gently.  We're looking for a very special family who is ready to fall in love with BJ and allow him to have the best time of his life.

Update from BJ's Foster Family - Mar 1, 2017: BJ is the sweetest dog I have ever had. Such a gentle love bug. He's not crazy jumping out of control. His prey drive is very strong for cats and squirrels! He loves and snuggles very gently. In the yard, BJ likes to carry a ball in his mouth and looks just so cute! He needs to be reminded that he can't run around out of control with the other dogs, so he will do best in a home with calm dogs, or as the only dog. He is just so awesome, I wish everyone could share a day with him!!!!

Bob (#170018)

Bob is a 4 yr old neutered black male.  He weighs 55 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations.  He was heartworm positive and now has completed his treatment and is beginning his post treatment rest period.  Bob is easy going dog that loves to be with you.  So far he hasn't been interested in playing with toys or retrieving but that will come with time now that he is with Lab Rescue.  Bob is very interested in food but he is very polite about it: he doesn't guard his food, doesn't beg and didn't countersurf at their home.  He doesn't like any fruits or vegetables- raw or cooked- and will spit them out.  He was not always gentle when taking treats, so his owners need to figure out which way works best and be consistent.  He is a quiet dog and rarely barks inside, but may whine if there is something he wants.   Bob loves his walks- almost as much as food. He will bark at other dogs- but not in an aggressive way- and after he does bark, he has a little swagger in his step.  He does have a penchant for dirty socks, so he is a constant reminder to pick up after yourself. He isn't destructive but may stop and taste something that looks interesting, so he does need toys and needs to be taught which things do belong to him.  He is a delightful dog, full of personality who loves to be with you.  He would love a family that has a house with a yard they can play with her in and give him the love and attention he deserves.

Buddy (#170026)

Buddy is a 2 yr old neutered black male.  He weighs 49 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm positive.  Lab Rescue will pay for treatment if treated at one of our authorized vets.  Buddy is good with dogs but not cats.  He is approved for ages 10 and up.  Buddy has had a rough start but things are going to be a lot better for him now.  Since he came into Lab Rescue he has made a lot of friends.   The kennel staff have given him a lot of attention and love.  He has learned to relax around new people and is good around other dogs.  He is still a little slow to share toys with other dogs if he gets one he does want to give it up but will if you trade him for another one.  Buddy needs a home that has a fenced yard so he can play and run around without wandering off.  He will make some lucky family a wonderful companion.

Update from Buddy's Foster Family - Feb 27, 2017: Buddy is really blossoming. He has started playing with the resident lab. He loves his toys and chasing a tennis ball. Buddy loves to cuddle, sleep with you and isn't an early riser. You would never know he is a tripod the way he runs around the house and the backyard. He is a great car rider and is well behaved in pet friendly stores. 

Update from Buddy's Foster Family - Feb 20, 2017: Buddy is a stunning 2 year old black lab. He had his left, front leg amputated on January 17, but don't tell Buddy that. He can do anything a four legged lab can do. He loves to play with a tennis ball by himself, batting it around the house and chasing it. Buddy doesn't have any problems with hardwood floors. He can jump up on sofas and beds. He loves to sleep with you. 

Update from Buddy's Foster Family - Feb 13, 2017: Buddy has had a rough start but things are going to be a lot better for him from now on. Since he came into Lab Rescue he has made a lot of friends all the kennel staff who have given him a lot of attention and love. He has learned to relax around new people and is good around other dogs. He is still a little slow to share toys with other dogs if he gets one he does want to give it up but will if you trade him for another one.. Buddy went to a foster where he did well but came back as the foster had cats and Buddy tried to get them. Foster told me she would have adopted him if he was good with her cats. Buddy needs a home that has a fenced yard so he can play and run around without wandering off. He will make some lucky family a wonderful companion. He just went to another foster (without cats) today 

Kids 10 and up as we have no history. Good with other dogs. No cats he will chase them and more. Knows sit, and come. Okay on lead. Crate trained and is about 95% house trained, waits to go outside to go. 




Charlotte (#160371)

Charlotte is a 1 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 35 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Charlotte is approved for ages 10 and up.  Charlotte is a super sweet little nugget, who doesn't let having three legs slow her down at all! She will run and hop up a full flight of stairs before you have time to marvel at the fact that she's doing it! She even skips stairs! She sleeps soundly through the night, is house and crate trained, and is perfect in the crate, never making a peep. She's not crazy energetic, and seems content to beg for belly rubs and cuddle, and enjoy munching on some grass while exploring outside. She does well with the older, laid back dogs in the house, but is a bit concerned when the rambunctious ones get too close as she's still a bit unbalanced and I think is afraid they might knock her over. She loves to be outside, and chases bits of fluff (and flies) but hasn't quite decided to chase toys or balls yet. Charlotte knows her basic commands (sit, come, kennel & drop it), but as a young girl who has been through a lot of changes, a refresher training course and a bit of consistency would help her thrive. She is incredibly easy on leash, and just needs the tiniest tug of encouragement when she gets tired or distracted to follow her human.




Coalson (#170308)

Coalson is an 18 month old black neutered male.  He weighs 62 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but no cats for Coalson.  He is approved for ages 10 and up.  Coalson is a sweet boy who fell on tough times and is looking for that special family to take him in and shower him with lots of love and attention.




Costa (#170283)

Costa is a 1 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 57 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs and must go to a home with another dog.  Costa is unknown with cats and approved for ages 7 and up. He is somewhat shy really frightened by loud noises.  He has a gorgeous shiny coat and an adorable face  and BIG feet!  He is good in his crate and has not had any accidents at the foster so far. Costa walks well on leash when walked with Oakley, or another dog, but needs a little more work when walking on his own. 




Cubby (#160715)

Cubby is a 1-1/2 yr old chocolate neutered male.  He weighs 64 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but no cats for Cubby.  Cubby is approved for ages 10 and up.  Cubby is a gorgeous boy who has been waiting for a family for a while. He recently has been working with a trainer and is doing well. He is good on leash but we have been working on his reactivity on leash. Cubby does not like to interact with other dogs much. He's not the type of dog that will enjoy going to a dog park. He prefers to bond with his humans and play in the yard with them instead. He loves to play fetch and loves toys. He will need an experienced adopter who will recognize that he doesn't want to meet every dog that they see. He has learned many commands and will listen to his handler attentively. Cubby will do best as an only dog in a family where he can be the center of attention. Cubby is full of love to offer. He absolutely loves to snuggle and go for car rides. He gets excited thinking about what his next adventure may be.

Daisy #3 (#160289) 

Daisy is an 11 year old spayed yellow female who is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. This sweet senior who used to do field trials in her younger days is in need of some TLC after a rough few years. She is good with dogs but would prefer to be a solo dog or with another very submissive dog. She is good with cats and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. Daisy weighs 54 pounds. Since coming to Lab Rescue she has perked up considerably thanks to good nutrition and finally getting the veterinary care she needed. She should not be crated, must go to a home with a fenced in yard (no invisible fences) and have people who are not gone for long periods, because this girl loves company. 

 Watch silly Daisy with her new food-dispensing ball. 

Update from Daisy's foster family - March 22, 2017:

Daisy is such a doll! She has settled in nicely to her foster home and is loving playing ball in the yard. She's a wonderful house guest and doesn't ask for much - just a bit of fetch and some love.

Dixie (#170292)

Dixie is a 12 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 74 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs and cats and is approved for ages 7 and up.  Dixie is a gentle and sweet girl whose life has been turned upside down by the death of her owner. She really craves attention and reassurance, but her confidence is beginning to return and she is starting to show a little interest in exploring on her own when outside. Her hind legs are a little wobbly; she can't handle slippery floors, so area runners are needed in those areas. She is excellent on a leash and immediately responds if called, though she's rarely more than a few feet away. Dixie doesn't pay any attention at all to the resident dogs; people are what matter to her. Ideal situation for her would be a calm environment and a person/people with lots of time to lavish attention on her, few stairs and no slippery floors. She doesn't want or need a lot of exercise, so a small yard or even no yard but a few short walks daily would be OK for her, skipping dog parks which may be too much action for her.




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.  She is good with dogs andcats and must go to a home with another dog.  Dottie is approved for ages 10 and up.  Dottie has been wonderful. She is a sweetheart. Dottie 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!




Floyd (#160344) and Harvey (#160345)

Floyd and Harvey are a bonded pair and will be adopted together. Floyd is a 6 year old neutered male mixed breed who weighs 51 pounds and Harvey is a 7 year old neutered black male lab who weighs 58 pounds. Both are current on vaccines and heartworm negative. These two will need a yard with a physical, not invisible, fence. Floyd is a bit shy with people initially but he warms up quickly. He is good on leash, walking right beside his human and knows numerous commands. Harvey knows lots of commands, too, but because he is a social butterfly eager to meet and greet, he will need an easy walk harness for walks. Harvey loves to retrieve. Both are good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up. Both of the guys are fully trustworthy around the house and do not need to be crated.

Update from Floyd & Harvey's foster family Aug 13, 2016:

Happy Harvey and Five-o-Clock-Shadow Floyd (my newest nickname for him) have been enjoying themselves with toys or laying out in the sun. They are so easy--and eager--to please! These boys demand so little, and are ready for their forever family! 

Aug 3, 2016: Harvey and Floyd took a walk with their fosters yesterday. Harvey walks ok and needs some correction, but he does not try to run or act wild. He wants to walk ahead a little but he didn't seem to be pulling. Floyd is calm and heels on his own. Floyd has a bit of a fear of thunderstorms and hides until they are over. He prefers dark corners in the basement where is quieter. Harvey loves chasing a ball and he sometimes tries to get Floyd to play. They will play a little bit. The boys are really are so well behaved and you can easily tell that really love one another. They wait for each other in the yard and go in and outside together. They are very low maintenance, lovable pups. 

Update from Floyd and Harvey's Foster Family - Sept 18, 2016: They are a low-maintenance bonded pair who get along with the two resident canines. They love lounging, playing inside and outside, and getting belly and butt rubs.

Update from Floyd and Harvey’s Foster Family -  Nov 7, 2016: Floyd and Harvey are a low-maintenance bonded pair with great house manners. 

FLOYD, a 51-lb, 6-year-old neutered male mixed breed, is calm and a tad shy, which means he lets you take the lead. He doesn’t walk in front of you indoors or outdoors. He knows how to get comfy! He loves rolling up blankets into pillows and loves pieces of sardines with his meals. 

HARVEY, a 58-lb, 7-year-old neutered black lab, is playful and always smiling. He is a social butterfly. He tries to provoke Floyd (or you) to play. But he does know when to lay down and relax. He loves begging for belly rubs and to retrieve. He will come over to you, throw himself down and roll onto his back. He needs a harness for walks. 

Commands: sit, down, give paw, get toy. Good with other dogs!

Ramsey (#170264)

 

Ramsey is a 6 year old neutered black male who weighs 55 lbs.  He is good with female dogs; and approved for kids 10 and up.  No cats for this handsome fella.

 

Ramsey has been diagnosed with degenerative myelopathy, a progressive disease of the spinal cord in dogs;  The disease has an insidious onset which begins with a loss of coordination in the hind limbs.  The affected dog will wobble when walking; his rear legs will knuckle over or will drag his feet.  As the disease progresses, Ramsey is likely to have difficulty standing and eventually become unable to walk.  The clinical course can range from 6 months to 1 year before dogs become paraplegic.  While he does not feel any pain, Ramsey has a hard time walking and functioning like a normal dog.

 

Personnel at the shelter felt that Ramsey was a good candidate for a wheelchair and they submitted an application on his behalf.  He received donated wheels from Rescue Rollers - Wheelchairs for Dogs (https://www.facebook.com/RescuedRollers).  Ramsey does not think that anything is wrong.  He gets around fine outdoors with his cart.  Once in a while he gets stuck in a corner and needs a little help getting the cart redirected.  In the house he gets around by scooting with his back legs.  He moves well on tile and wood floors and goes a little slower on carpet.  

 

While his time may be short, Ramsey is looking for a family that can give him the life and love he deserves.  Ramsey is house trained.  He cannot be crated as he can’t always turn around in confined spaces.  His ideal home will have few steps at the house entrance and hard floors.  He needs a family that can take him for walks 3 times a day.

Riley (#170131)

 

Riley is a 2 1/2 year old neutered fox red male who weighs 58 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heartworm negative.  Riley would do best as a sole dog.  He is approved for kids 10 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes with a physical fence in a suburban neighborhood or rural area.

 

Riley is a champion snuggler who loves to be with his people.  He has terrific house manners and was very gentle and loving with his elderly owners.  Riley is not used to being left alone so his ideal home would have a human home more than not.  Riley is not that fond of other dogs so his adopter needs to have a fenced yard where he can run and burn some energy rather than depending on walks or dog parks.  He would be happiest in the country where he doesn’t feel the need to protect his family from cars, people and other dogs. 



Rumble (#170297)

 

Rumble is a 3 year old neutered black male who weighs 85 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heart worm negative.  Rumble is good with dogs; unknown with cats; and approved for kids 12 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes with a physical fence in a suburban neighborhood or rural area.  

 

Rumble is a gorgeous boy with a lot of energy to burn.  He is looking for a family that will take him to obedience training; exercise him on a regular basis; and give him lots of love.  Rumble loves to fetch and play.  This boy would make a great running partner or would be great for someone looking for a hiking buddy.

Trouble (#170312)

 

Trouble is a 7 year old neutered black male who weighs 55 lbs and should probably gain 5 more.  He is current with his shots and is heartworm positive.  Lab Rescue will pay for his treatment if it is done at one of their vets.  Trouble is good with dogs; unknown with cats; and approved for kids 10 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural area.  

 

Trouble is a friendly dog who likes to be petted.  He is an easy going fella who doesn’t think that running around like crazy is necessary any more.  Trouble is pretty good on a lead and enjoys taking walks.  He knows the commands sit, down and come.  Appears to be house trained as he is keeping his room clean at the kennel.  



Tucker (#160567)

 

Tucker is 2 year old neutered black male who weighs 69 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heartworm negative.  Tucker is good with dogs and is approved for kids 10 and up.  No cats for this boy.  Placement is open to single family homes, townhouses and condos in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.  Family must be committed to giving Tucker the exercise that he needs.  

 

Tucker is a goofy boy who likes to entertain with his crazy antics.  Tucker is great at playing fetch and loves car rides.  Walks best with an easy walk harness.  He prefers not to be crated.  

 

Tucker would probably do best with someone who is home more than not. He would benefit from additional training, which would help him bond with his new owner, establish boundaries, and provide mental stimulation. Tucker can be a bit fearful of new people and loud noises so introductions should be slow- nothing patience, understanding and increased exposure can't fix. 



Wendy (#170258)

 

Wendy is a 18 month old spayed chocolate female who weighs 50 lbs.  She is current with her shots and is heart worm negative.  Wendy is good with dogs; unknown with cats; and approved for kids 10 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.  No electronic fences for this girl.

 

Wendy is a super sweet love bug.  She loves to fetch tennis balls and will chase a ball for as long as you are willing to throw it.  She loves water - including getting sprayed with the hose.  Wendy is an energetic pup who will require a lot of regular exercise.  As she is still a youngster, Wendy will have a training addendum.  She is good about being crated when the fosters are gone for long periods and hasn’t tried to chew anything she shouldn’t.



Woody (#170314)

 

Woody is a 1 year old neutered yellow male who weighs 41 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heart worm negative.  Woody is good with dogs and with cats; and approved for kids 10 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes and townhouses in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.  

 

Woody is a super friendly, wiggle worm who gets along with everyone.  He is recovering from a severe case of non-contagious Demodex mange.  More on this cutie as we get to know him better.



Zoey #3 (#170181)

 

Zoey is a 8 year old spayed black female who weighs 78 lbs.  She is current with her shots; and is heartworm negative.  Zoey is good with dogs of all sizes; unknown with cats; and approved for kids of all ages.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes or townhomes in a  suburban neighborhood or rural setting.

 

Zoey is a stunningly beautiful gal that has an awesome zest for life. Don't let her age fool you, she is ready to take on any adventure.  Zoey enjoys retrieving and swimming. She has great recall. Zoey is house and crate trained but has not been crated for years. She knows basic commands and is well-behaved.
