Luna (#150017)

Luna is a 5 year old black spayed female.  She weighs 68 pounds, is approved for kids 15 and up and is heartworm positive.  Luna must go to a home with another dog and needs a quiet neighborhood with a fenced yard.  Luna is a low key and well mannered pup.  She follows the lead of her foster brother and he's showing her the good life of couch and bed sleeping.  Luna has been left loose in the house and hasn't had any issues.  She needs a quiet and calm household because she is startled by loud noises and fast movements.  Luna should be walked with a fitted harness to be sure she doesn't slip her collar should she be startled.

Update from Luna's foster family 2/22/2015

Baby it's cold outside but Luna loves it though she also enjoys curling back up in the warm bed for some loving. Luna is a very, very shy girl who's just starting to learn about the world and the safety of a home. Her world is still very small; the house and the fenced yard.   Luna is making progress but she is still a very timid sweetie. She loves to snuggle in bed and will follow me downstairs in the morning but she is skittish and sudden moves can send her back upstairs. She likes to head outside to chase after my dog while he plays fetch. She bounces and wags her tail but playtime lasts a short time. Luna is a low energy girl. At meal time, Luna does best in her crate so she doesn't get distracted. She loves to spend her day alternating between the dog bed in my office and my bed. Snoozing is her hobby! She will snuggle with the resident dog sometimes. She has perfect house manners and never barks.  If you love labs but can't keep up with the high energy ones, then Luna is your girl!

Resources for Adopters


Thank you for adopting a lab from Lab Rescue of the LRCP.  Every year we find special homes like yours for hundreds of labs and along the way we have learned a lot that we hope can help you too. This section of our website is just for you and we hope it contains useful tips that can make the transition to your home move smoothly.

We know that every home is unique and you should know that every dog is unique as well. 

Remember that relationships don't just happen.  They take time and effort and along the way there may be bumps in the road.  That's to be expected but there are things that you can do to ease everyone's transition.  Don't be surprised by the occasional naughty behavior; it's normal.

If you have a question that doesn't appear in our resources section then please reach out to your adoption coordinator and he or she can get you the answers that you need.
