Mariner (#150257)

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 heartworm positive.  Lab Rescue will pay for her treatment if done at one of our vets.  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.  Mariner hasn't had any accidents and hasn't gotten into anything she isn't supposed to.  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 and no steep stairs.  She also prefers more carpet than tile.  

From Mariner's Foster Family - Jul 30, 2015: Mariner is doing fabulous in her foster home. She really has come so far since she arrived to lab rescue! She is currently sleeping and wagging her tail! She is to the point where she is almost playful when people come home or get up. She's still uncertain out in the world on a leash but she is doing fantastic. 

Jun 10, 2015: Foster momma made me wear this silly hat to celebrate the fact that I am starting MY new year. I am now healthy and free of heartworms. I even played fetch tonight - well only once because I brought the ball back and she threw it again. Clearly she doesn't want the ball! I am still not ready to walk on a leash - the world is still a little scary but I am doing really well in the house and in the backyard so if you have a fenced yard, a friendly dog and a place in your heart for me - call your A/C! I am ready - just tell them that Mariner sent you!!

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.

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.

Thank You for a Great Walk!

This year's walk was held on June 14th, 2015 at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis, MD.

We had over 300 registrants and everyone enjoyed a beautiful, sun dappled walk.  Many dogs passed their Canine Good Citizen tests, romped in our splash and play area and were introduced to search and rescue / agility through onsite demonstrations.

Most importantly, we came together to celebrate our Love of Labs and of all dogs!

Thank you to our walkers, sponsors, vendors and volunteers for making this not only the funnest walk yet but also a great fundraising event.  Thanks to everyone's efforts, Lab Rescue of the LRCP raised about $110,000 to save Labs in need!
