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.

Lab Rescue welcomes sponsors for our Labs!  Please visit the Labs Seeking Sponsors page of our website and help a Lab while he or she waits for their forever home.

Bear needs to go to a family with a fenced yard, and is used to getting a lot of outdoor, fun exercise.  He is a fantastic pup that loves to do things outdoors, especially if it involves retrieving! Bear is looking for an active family that will take him for walks, and to go swimming when it gets warmer! He is very affectionate and loves to be hugged and kissed on. He absolutely loves to retrieve and would benefit from an owner with a chuckit! He also enjoys swimming, even in the bay and will retrieve until the day's end. Bear is house trained and crate trained. He walks well on leash and likes to say hi to other dogs and initiate play. He knows basic commands such as sit, stay, down, heel, speak, and here.

Beauregard AKA JD (#140183)

 

JD is an 11 month old yellow neutered male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs and is approved for children aged 8 and up. No cats for JD. He weighs 58 lbs. JD comes from the country and would prefer to live in a rural or suburban setting with a fenced yard. He is very sweet and loves affection. Like every young dog, JD has lots of puppy energy to burn! He is a quick learner and is very easy to please, and will come with a training addendum.

Update from JD's foster family - 1/22/2015

JD Jots:

I'm still wondering why haven't I found my forever family yet. I'm really lovable and I'm learning to behave. I had my first training session with a friend of my foster parents. This is what she wrote about me: " I was very impressed with JD this morning smile emoticon he calmed down pretty quick and settled into an almost-heel position when walking. He definitely has the puppy ADD thing going but he's a sweet boy with lots of potential! He likes treats and is eager to please so I don't see it being too tough. Definitely going to work on the pulling to exciting things and 'leave it' next session." Foster Mom and Dad are working on name recognition.  I'm a lively boy that can either be alone or with other dogs. I need a fenced in yard or someone who will be able to exercise me. You see, I can be a little mischievous but it's because I'm curious. I'm quite the catch if you're looking for a boy that can have some energy but loves to cuddle. I've been told that's a hard balance to find and I have that quality. I'm crate trained and a good eater. I'm very smart and accepting of other dogs. But probably my greatest asset, I love to be loved on and I return it three-fold. This works great with kids!

Update from their foster family 1/17/2015

Bella loves to play fetch with the 4 year old resident dog and Daisy loves to steal toys from them both. Plus, they are great cuddlers, and will sleep on dog beds if the humans insist on sitting on the furniture. They have excellent manners and don't beg for your food. They are wonderful house guests and are looking and feeling much better now that they lost some lbs. Daisy weighs 80 pounds and Bella weighs 102. They have more energy and are more playful.

Coco is a 10 year old spayed chocolate female. She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative. Coco is good with both cats and dogs, and is approved for children aged 3 and up. Coco weighs 71 lbs and needs to lose a few. Coco has beautiful soulful eyes and loves being petted. She gives the cutest tidy wet kisses. Although Coco only has 3 legs, she moves around well

Coco makes her case - 1/24/2015

I know you didn’t come here today looking for an overweight, pin-headed, ear-challenged, three-legged, senior chocolate drop, but let me make my case:

It’s one less muddy wet paw to dry when I come in the house

It’s four fewer nails to trim

I will not be jumping over your fence

I will not make you walk 5 miles in the rain every day so I get my exercise

I am not going to force you to throw a darned tennis ball until you develop bursitis

You won’t wake up with my rear in your face (unless you have a very low bed)

I like other dogs, am totally indifferent to cats and am good with children of all ages

I like to chew on toys and bones, but I don’t touch anything that isn’t mine

I can only handle two or three stairs at a time and since I really like to follow my people around, I need a single story home

I do pretty well on smooth floors, since I can scoot to the nearest rug to get on my feet after laying down, and I am pretty used to stumbling since my foster brothers and sisters are always knocking me over. 

I have an infectious smile and give great kisses. How can you resist?

Colt (#140311)

  Watch Colt on YouTube

Colt is a 12 year old neutered chocolate male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm positive but he will continue to use the monthly preventatives instead of a treatment.   Colt weighs 76 lbs and is approved for children aged 10 an up.  Colt came to Lab Rescue as a member of a bonded pair.  He has adjusted well, but must go to a home with another dog.

Update from Colt's foster family - 10/6/2014

Colt enjoys relaxing and is easy going. He is always ready for a walk and is a dream on lead.  He also enjoys a good ride. He is calm and affectionate and very low maintenance.  A few games of fetch keeps him happy for the whole day. He was part of a bonded pair and definitely needs another dog to be his companion. Colt loves hanging out with my dog and often follows me around the house. He does well in the house during the work day with a midday outing.

Colt is a wonderful companion. He is happy to be at your side and so appreciative if you take a few minutes to pet him. He will pick up a bone occasionally for a little chew. He is perfectly mannered in the house. Colt enjoys time in the yard.  He loves following the scent trails of bunnies who have scampered through he yard and find a comfortable spot to settle down. He loves being first to the ball and then carrying it around to make sure the other dogs know that he has it. Colt is a very even-tempered guy. Every day begins with furious tail-wagging and happy greetings to everyone, human or canine, and ends with a satisfied grunt as he settles in for the evening. He’s a lovely, gentle character and a complete pleasure to host.

Update from Danny’s foster family 1/28/2015

Danny is an affectionate, mellow and gentle sweetheart who wants nothing more than to keep you company. He is happy to do whatever you want to do, be it going for a drive, watching a movie, taking a nap. Danny is not a morning person and enjoys sleeping in until about 8-10am. He loves to sniff around outside and is very easy to walk given his small size. He is a very low maintenance dog, with wonderful house manners.  He does not: counter surf; jump; whine for food; or disturb anything in the house. He barks when he meets other dogs in the street but settles down quickly as long as they are not in his face. He will chase cats and squirrels. Danny loves to be the center of attention so sharing a home with another dog isn't an option. The way he sees it is you won't need any other dog but him!

Duncan is such a big lover. All he wants is to be with people. He likes to play fetch with the ball and will bring it back to you and give it with a soft mouth or drop it at your feet. He is very excited to sleep in the bedroom on the dog bed ( he would prefer our bed but is not allowed). Since his fosters don't have a fenced yard, his exercise is leash walking which he is very happy to do and is well behaved. He and his foster brother hang out and enjoy walks together.  We are making progress with basic commands and he always comes running to a whistle. We have also met the neighborhood dogs and adults and he has been friendly to all!  Let me just say that Duncan is a beautiful, big, love!!!!

Empire is a country boy and would prefer not to live in an apartment/condo setting. Empire is an easygoing guy who enjoys being with you to keep you company. He especially likes getting back scratches. Empire pulls a little on the lead so he will benefit from the use of an easy walk harness. Empire has hyperthyroidism, which can easily be controlled with relatively low cost medicine. 

Update from Empire's foster family - 1/12/2015

Empire is a tall, long, lean boy. His regal name fits this big guy. He knows a few commands and is very easy to love and care for. He sleeps in foster mom's bedroom and likes to snooze in the sun during the day. Short walks are good and helping him build some back leg strength. Prefers to be close by, few stairs, and has some trouble on slippery floors. Empire is looking to gain a few pounds and a soft place to land with lots of snuggles.   Empire does well meeting other dogs, but would prefer to be center of attention.   His primary goal in life is to be with his people. He has good house manners, although he will show mild interest when people food's around, but responds quickly to correction. He always looks for the softest place to sleep.  Empire knows “sit” and “stay”.  He is friendly to any new person he meets and shows strong curiosity in new places. He will be a wonderful companion to someone home more often than not in a home with limited stairs.  Empire would appreciate a couch potato who will thoroughly enjoy giving chin and ear scratches, and belly rubs.

Gertie is a 2 year 9 month old yellow spayed female who knows a few commands already. Sweet Gertie is a country girl who probably would not do well in an apartment or condo. She gets along with other dogs and must go to a home with another dog. She would do best with older children, aged 16 and up. Gertie is heartworm positive, but her treatment will be covered by Lab Rescue if it is provided by one of our vets.  Gertie is learning to walk on a leash and is house trained, but this beautiful yellow girl will benefit from formal training. 

Update from Gertie's foster family 11/30/2014

Gertie is a love who enjoys being with you and getting attention which she rewards with a wagging tail and kisses. She goes on walks through a wooded trail with the neighborhood dogs which includes running through the wood, splashing through mud puddles and going swimming in the ponds. She is a little timid when she first does something new but after she figures out that it isn't going to hurt her she is fine. If she encounters something new she comes back to Roxanne to get reassurance then she is off again. She would do better with another dog to teach her the ropes and give her company.She doesn't get into trouble when she is left alone and has free run of the house, no counter surfing or garbage can exploring.

Gracie #4 (#140855) and Lotus (#140856)

Gracie and Lotus are a bonded pair of 7 year old Labs who must be adopted together. They are AKC registered purebred labs who ride well in the car and love squeaky toys. Gracie is a spayed yellow female who is 70 pounds. Her best pal Lotus is a 93 pound neutered black male who needs to lose about 10 pounds. Both are heartworm negative and up-to-date on vaccines. Gracie is almost completely blind and is also diabetic. She receives inexpensive insulin shots and gets around just fine. 

Update from their foster family 1/16/2015

Gracie is friendly, very people oriented, and responds well to praise. She is affectionate, but does not demand constant attention. She is easily startled by unexpected physical contact - either by a dog or a person. Overall, I think she would do best in a somewhat quieter household. Gracie only barks if another dog in the household starts barking. I think she would be fine in an apartment and doesn't require a yard as long as she gets daily walks. NO invisible fences for this girl. She loves to go for walks and likes to retrieve. She was delighted to be able to retrieve using a ball that makes noise when it rolls. She is a real sweetie pie.

Lotus is a "velcro lab". He wants to be wherever you are.  He is active and athletic and would prefer a fenced yard. He likes being outside and spends most of his time patrolling the yard. He loves walks, likes to retrieve, and likes to jump into the air to catch things (like stuffed toys). Talented boy! He seems to have a high prey drive: he shakes his stuffed toys, chases squirrels, and was a bit too interested in the cats he met at the veterinary clinic. NO CATS!

Hachiko (#150032)

At ten years old, Hachiko is an older gentleman with lots of love to give. He's heartworm negative, up-to-date on vaccines and good with other dogs and with cats, too!  Hachiko is approved for kids ages 10 and up. He is gaining confidence in foster care and enjoys being petted and living indoors. He weighs 52 pounds but could stand to gain 8-12 more.

Update from Hachiko's foster family 1/28/2015

This sweetie has settled in and is no longer hiding in the bathroom. He still sleeps there at night but he is much more confident, walks around, comes trotting over with a waggling tail to demand to be petted. It is really heartwarming to see how far he has come. He is eating better, a bit more than once a day. He always has access to food. He is a love, very affectionate and enjoys following you around. His biggest concern is to make sure that he will not be left outside, he rushes inside as soon as the door opens, but that will probably get better over time as he realizes that he can trust us - or whomever he will end up with.

Harvey (#140900) 

Harvey is a four and a half year old chocolate boy who is neutered and is good with other dogs but not with cats. This sweet little boy weighs 58 pounds, is heartworm negative and approved for ages 10 and up.  Harvey is blind in one eye and the eye was giving him pain, so it was removed. He is  vision impaired in his other, but gets along just fine.  He is a nice boy looking for a home with plenty of space for him to play since he is a country boy unaccustomed to city noises.

Update from Harvey's foster family 1/24/2015

Harvey has shed his sutures and cone (from his eye removal surgery) and is one happy fella! He looks great and gets around just fine (including stairs) with his limited eyesight Harvey is pretty much a couch potato and loves cuddling. He's a calm gentlemen and rarely barks or jumps on you. He enjoys his daily walks and likes meeting other dogs. His house training is almost excellent. Harvey does not get along with cats, but he's a wonderful companion for everyone else,  he is the perfect Lab. He goes out in the yard and walks to the back door and he goes right out to do his business. He is crate trained, it takes some encouragement to get him in but then he's fine. He sleeps all night without a peep. Harvey has the routine down pat and fits right in. He loves to cuddle in bed with his foster and the resident dogs. He navigates every inch of the house very well. He is allowed on the couch and he loves it. He needs no help getting down from either the couch or the bed. He's such a mellow fellow. We had visitors today and he slid to the ground and showed his belly. He's not a counter surfer, although being in the kitchen makes him happy. He walks great on the easy-walk harness and really seemed to enjoy today's walk. He loves my dogs. Harvey is okay going out in the morning darkness (he is leashed when it's dark- with a flashlight), but he really doesn't like going out after 5pm. When Harvey doesn't want to do something (go out the back, or get in his crate) he flops down, and shows his belly. Its adorable and he'll very easily wrap you around his paw!   He is a great foster and he will make a wonderful, sweet and loving addition to one lucky family!

Lincoln is a 5 year old neutered yellow male.  He is good with other dogs and is heartworm negative.  He weighs 80 pounds and if approved for kids 10 and up.  Lincoln is a sweet, friendly boy who enjoys being outdoors.  He is loving and very interested in his surroundings.  Lincoln would like a home on the quieter side which doesn't have lots of people and kids coming and going.

Update from Lincoln's foster family 1/15/2015

Lincoln is a super sweet guy that loves to be around his foster family. He loves his walks and has gotten much better on the lead although an easy walk harness would be advisable as he gets a little excited if he sees another excited dog. Lincoln is house and crate trained although we haven't crated him since the first day and have left him up to 5 hours with no problem. Although he can get along with other dogs, we think Lincoln would do best in a calm environment where he was the only dog. We have had several people visit or stay with us while he has been here and he has done great with all of them. He loves the extra attention more people offer. He will twirl in a circle when you pet him and just talk up a storm. Then he flops on his back and relaxes while you give him belly rubs. He rides great in the car and will either sleep or look out the window and watch the world go by. We think he would do best with someone that has a quiet home life and is home more often than not. He gets two good walks a day and that seems to help keep him calm in the house. He has a great personality and will show it more and more as you get to know him. He will make a great companion.

Luke #4 (#140847)  

Luke is a 7 year old yellow neutered male.  He is approved for kids 10 and up, is good with other dogs and weighs 64 pounds.  No cats for Luke.  He is heartworm negative.  Luke is very friendly, social boy.  He's been wonderful with every person he's met and knows Sit and Stay.  He has a great Lab Lean and takes treats well.  Luke's hips are a bit stiff and he's taking glucosamine to add some flexibility, but he gets around just fine.

Update from Luke's foster family 12/2/2014

Luke has been getting along with everyone he meets. He does bark when someone comes to the door but that's what most dogs do. He has a lot of energy for even a young dog, so at 7 he is very active which is wonderful for someone who loves to walk and be outside. He likes long leisurely walks or brisk short jaunts - he's not choosy as long as it involves being outdoors seeing sites and smelling smells. He has the gait of a jogging buddy and will exhaust himself playing fetch.  Luke's perfect home would have a fenced yard so he can run and play. He is good with other dogs and has gotten along great with all the dogs he's met, but none have been small ones, so keep his high prey drive in mind. His fur is so silky soft and he has the sweetest little puppy face. He loves stuffed toys, especially his hedgehog. He is house trained and crate trained though he hasn't been crated in his current foster home. he gets a little excited in the car, and he knows basic commands. He loves to snuggle, sleeps on the couch with my lab at night and is just overall a lovable lab.

Maisy (#140941)  

 
Maisy is a 1 year old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 52 pounds and is approved for kids 10 and up.  She is heartworm negative.  Maisy must go to a home with another dog.  She is a happy, bouncy puppy who needs a quiet and patient family to help her blossom into a confident girl.  She is shy at first, but opens up with a squeaky tennis ball and another pup to play with.  Maisy is more tentative with men, so patience while she builds her trust is key.  She would prefer a home in a quiet neighborhood with a fenced yard to play in. Maisy needs four things to be successful; 1) a quiet home 2) a quiet neighborhood 3) a playful resident dog and 4) a fenced yard to run in.

Update from Maisy's foster family 1/24/2015

What was new with Maisy? Well, she had more overnight guests in the house and thought they were grand. It took her almost no time to say WELCOME and they enjoyed playing ball together.    New opportunities? Well, we're investigating the world from the inside of a car. Maisy loves going for rides in the car and everything scary on the street is easier to digest inside a car so we're going for rides almost every day....ride to the kiss in ride to see people. Ride through the drive through for McNuggests...drive to the schoolyard to get to know it. Ride to meet our new house guest who sat in the car and said 'hi to Maisy' with no fuss no muss. I know I've said this before but Maisy is 90% puppy. Yes she has her special needs but once she settles in she's yours! Yes when people come over she barks and scoots away...if your house is like mine...that's 3x a week and she rolls with it and settles in just fine.

The only other thing that stands in the way of Maisy having a home is walking through the neighborhood. Now, I'm 1/2 a block from an elementary school so there's lots of people going through my neighborhood. We have a route we walk with minimal people but we still see about 10 people per walk - mail carriers, ups deliveries, people walking or leaving their home. She does better and better with this. 6 weeks ago she was in never ending search for threats but not any more. She enjoys walks and does fine with most things now. But we limit and use lots of her favorite treats and she's getting braver and braver.

Time and safe exposure to the things that scare her have already made a huge difference with Maisy. Her 'fear times' are less than an hour a day...that's nothing! For such a special dog who's going to grow out of her silliness...it's nothing.  The 90% loving puppy is sooo worth the time and effort. She LOVES!!! She CUDDLES!!! She PLAYS beautifully with other dogs! She's smart as a whip and learns something new every day. Her house manners are impeccable which is good because sometimes she runs through the mud and needs to trot to the bath. If you have her checklist - another dog, a quiet home, a quiet neighborhood and a fenced yard...give her a chance!

Mellow Cup (#140918)

Watch Mellow Cup on

Mellow Cup is a 7 year old Chocolate neutered male.  He is approved for kids 10 and up and is good with dogs.  He weighs 110 pounds but needs to lose at least 15.  He is heartworm negative.  Mellow Cup is a nice boy who is friendly with other dogs, cats and people.  He does get startled with fast moves, so it's best to go slow with him as he gets used to his new surroundings.  He walks well on leash.

Update from Mellow Cup's foster family - 1 /10/2015

Mellow Cup has come so far in the last few weeks. He is fully embracing the house dog lifestyle including lounging on the sofa and beds. He is a big goofy boy that LOVES to play with his canine foster sister, but also loves to cuddle on the sofa and watch a movie. Mellow sleeps in a crate next to our bed and doesn't wake up until 7:30. We have given him the opportunity to sleep free of the crate, but he prefers sleeping in it. Mellow is really good on the leash and he very rarely pulls. Mellow is also great in the car. He is exceptional with all of the dogs he has met, nothing but a wagging tail with everyone. Mellow is looking for a family with another dog that likes to play and would do best with a family that isn't gone for a long work day. He is such a wonderful, sweet boy.

Moselle (#150010)

Moselle aka Moe is a 10 year old black neutered male.  He weighs 88 pounds but needs to lose 10-13, and is approved for kids 10 and up.  Moe is a lovely house guest and is getting along well with the resident dogs.    Moe loves sleeping on a large dog bed and having his face and ears rubbed before bedtime.  He will even tell you he wants some more pets my rubbing his face with his paws and inching a bit closer to you.

Update from Moe's foster family - 1/24/2015

Moe has been in his foster home about two weeks, and he has made great progress. He is not crated or gated during the day anymore. He has proven himself to be very trustworthy. His foster bought him a small rug to help him walk in the dining room on the hard wood floors. He mastered that without any problems. There is another one in the long hallway and more success there. His foster played a little game with him and praised him to get him used to walking with the carpet. Then he would trot off to the living room and repeat the game. He loved it - he was very silly.. He loves to go for walks and is a dream on the leash and has a very proud stride.  He enjoys his walks around the block.  He still sleeps on the dog bed next to his foster at night. In the morning he will poke his wet nose up on the bed to see if his foster is ready to get up. He's happy to get up or sleep in at his fosters whim.

Moselle really is a sweet guy. He's not the kind of dog that has a long list of needs or must-haves. He must have a comfy-cozy bed and a human that will shower him with love and praise. He can easily live with a dog(s) or not, and he can also live with a cat.

Nellie (#150021) & Sandy (#150020)

Nellie & Sandy are a bonded pair of yellow spayed females. Nellie is 7 and weighs 96 lbs, and Sandy is a 5 year old who weighs 83 lbs - both girls should lose 15-20 lbs. They are up to date on their shots and are heartworm negative.  They are good with other dogs and cats, and are approved for kids of all ages. The girls are house and crate trained. They have every and would do best with someone who will give them a good bit of exercise. They enjoy swimming and taking walks, and fetch! They respond to the commands outside, no, get down, crate, sit and go eat.  They are smart, good listeners who just want to please their people. 

Update from their foster family - 1/22/2015

Nellie and Sandy are the sweetest bonded pair of sisters that I have met. They are just a joy to foster. Nellie is the most expressive and talkative lab that I have fostered. She likes to talk as she is getting comfy on the dog bed or on the couch (she doesn't bark – just talks). She also has the most expressive face I have ever seen. She smooches it up and gets all kinds of wrinkles on her forehead, like she is carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders. Nellie does need to lose a few pounds. It shouldn't be too hard as she likes to play when she is out in the yard and she is always up for an adventure. I took the girls swimming this weekend and they had a ball. Nellie loves to go for car rides. When she gets into the house, she settles nicely and likes nothing more than to lay by your feet.

Nellie and Sandy are great with all dogs. They snuggle up to the resident two, will play tug of war with them and take treats next to them. Nellie is crate trained, however, she does need a little nudge to get in. Once she is in she is fine. She will go into the crate on her own for a little nap as well (apparently, she just doesn't like to be told when to go in.  Sandy is a very happy girl! It always seems like she is smiling. She is up for whatever her foster mama or pack wants to do. She is a little more active than Nellie and will play with dogs toys when no one is playing with her. She really enjoys playing fetch in the back yard. Loves the ball or the Frisbee. She is a fan of chase me and tug of war. Both girls are a big fan of affection. They love to get attention and have their belly rubbed.

Update from their foster family - 1/17/2015

Want LOVE? Got LOVE! Onyx and Niko are still looking for that forever family. They have great house manners and learn and obey new rules (like no dogs on the bed) in a day. Their foster family can eat in the front room snuggling with them without Onyx and Niko begging or sneak feeding. They spend time outside during the day, but prefer to be inside snoozing and snuggling once it's dark out. They love to help their foster mom telework and enjoy taking naps during the day. These are two very well behaved and loving dogs.  For those who are worried about the disruption adding two dogs can bring to the household, fear not...these boys have impeccable manners indoors and out. They give their foster mom space in the kitchen, only chew on toys (never her slippers next to the toys), sleep all night and let their foster mom sleep in every morning, They don't dig in the yard, are friends with the neighbor dogs, have minimal barking (e.g., someone's at the door), and have not stolen a taste or sip of any of the great foods that have been accidentally left next to them. Add in all the snuggling and unconditional love and they are a blessing to any family willing to take in a bonded pair!

Adopting Onyx and Niko means that you are adopting two dogs that will entertain each other. These two sweethearts will also seek out one on one cuddle time with their family. A day in the life of Onyx: protecting the yard from rogue squirrels, playing with friends, a little indoor silliness, practicing his "pathetic" look and lots of resting on his dog bed. He is such a gentleman. The little white, fluffy dog next door adores him. A day in the life of Niko: fetch, drop, fetch, drop, fetch, play, cuddle, sleep. Niko wants nothing more than to be loved, played with and to retrieve. They continue to be well behaved, welcome house guests.  Niko and Onyx are very sweet dogs. They love attention from people and enjoy playing with each other. They ride great in the car.  Onyx and Niko are perfectly mannered in the house. Both were crate trained as pups, but haven't needed one in years.  They  know sit, paw, stay, down and roll over. They are very much cuddle bugs and have spots in the bed with their name on them. They love all the people they meet and belly rubs and scratches. They are a joy to foster and are full of unconditional love. Some lucky family is going to love having them around!

She is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up.  She weighs 75 lbs.  Rhonda has had limited exposure to city noises, traffic and groups of people, so her adoption is limited to single family suburban or rural homes.  She must have a fenced yard.  Rhonda is a sweet and gentle girl.  She seems very social and enjoys love and attention.  She rode well in the car.

Update from Rhonda's foster family - 1/24/2015

Rhonda is becoming increasingly accustomed to life indoors. Indeed, for a dog who spent her first six years outside, she is somewhat of a couch potato! She enjoys running around the yard and playing with her foster brother, but when indoors, she's either having a rest on the couch or following her Foster Dad around the house. She's become very attached to him, and his home office, which is where she spends a good part of her days snoozing by his chair. If you want a dog who's going to be quietly at your side, she's your girl. Rhonda deserves a life of leisure and luxury. Who could resist this face?

Update from Sally's foster family - 1/17/2015

Sally continues to be a happy, joyful dog with tons of personality. She is the first to awake every morning and greets me by touching my face lightly with her cold little nose. After her breakfast she gets her morning dose of belly rubs and that starts our day. She is a creature of routine and habit and thrives on it. We end the evening on the floor with massage and belly rubs. We continue to attend dog classes weekly and always come home with new tips and tricks. Sally LOVES to go to class! She starts whining when we get to a certain point in our trip because she knows we are nearing our destination.

We have been concentrating on loose leash walking on our daily walks. She still displays anxiety in the presence of another dog. She always does a "happy dance" when she sees the leash. If she can find a home with some acreage she will find walks all the more more enjoyable. Sally loves to be loved on and has so much love to give back.   She's been patiently waiting for her forever family.  Sally is even thinking about dying her muzzle.....perhaps she can't get that interview because of the shades of grey???   She is a joyful, tail-wagging dog!   Sally is a smart, spunky, and spirited girl. She is a perfect companion.  Her house manners are wonderful, she knows many commands and tricks, is always ready for an adventure and keeps her fosters laughing.  As if all this is not enough, Sally is a rock star...just look at all the video's she has out! She is fearful of other dogs and Sally needs to be an only dog and live in a quiet household in a home with a fenced yard. Sally loves being with her humans and will make a fantastic and loyal companion.

Update from Shadow's foster family 1/14/2015

Shadow is a sweet young guy that is getting more playful & goofy as he warms up. He's beginning to show his inner interior design skills. He likes to move things around the house for me, & then show me what he's done so I can praise his skills. Particularly likes to move my shoes/slippers - may move them from under a chair to next to the chair or take a shoe/slipper and put it on his dog bed or out in the sun on the porch where he likes to hang out. Doesn't do any damage or chew on them, just likes to re-decorate. Shadow comes up for some ear rubs, will give me the lab lean, and rolls over for belly rubs. He definitely likes to stick close to the resident pup & seems to get a lot of confidence from having a buddy around to show him the ropes & play with. He’s played some with stuffed squeaky toys, had a short game of tug, and likes to wrestle with him. He’s enjoying all the comfy dog beds in the house and easily settles at night on one in the master bedroom. He enjoys spending time looking out the windows at what’s going on in the neighborhood and has also enjoys hanging on the screen porch or outside and laying in beams on sunlight. He knows sit and come.

Update from Sugar Baby 1/14/2015

Sugar Baby is a a total doll!! She is super easy on leash and a great rider. She is laid back and easy in the house, but also has spunk and loves to play outside with her foster sibs. She gets around in and out of the dog door and up a few steps with no problem and loves nothing more than a belly rub and a snuggle on the couch.

From Sugar Baby herself:

"What I am looking for in a home is just someone who will love me for me; enjoy snuggling on the sofa and giving me tummy scratches when I need them (all the time). I’d like carpeting since I’m not real sure-footed- after my nail trim, I am still figuring out how to use my front feet and my ample girth doesn’t help. I’d like toys- lots of toys: balls, chewing toys and soft toys to carry around and throw. I’d like someone to take me on walks to build up my muscles and help me lose weight, although I do pull some so I can smell everything three times. I’d enjoy another dog to play with; I like to share my toys with other dogs and try to scare up a good game of tug-of-war. A fenced yard would be nice so I can go out and sniff by myself. I am learning how to be a dog again and loving it!

Zeke (#150028)

Zeke is a 1 year old neutered black male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.   Zeke is good with other dogs, weighs around 80 lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up.  Zeke is a total sweetie! He is very playful and like most young labs he will need some formal training.  

Update from Zeke's foster family 1/25/2015

Zeke is a sweet boy but can be overly exuberant and will need an experienced owner and further training. He is a HUGE puppy and can be mouthy. He will need plenty of exercise and patience but will give lots of kisses and love in return. He is best walked with an EZWalk harness. He is a good rider and is eager to please.
