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.

Update from Ally and Zany's foster family  - March 15, 2015:

Ally and Zany here, FM 2.0 has been slacking off on her mugshot posting job the past few days....work she says....so today we stopped wiggling for a nanosecond and posed for this picture...not our best effort! However we'd like you all to know that while we are enjoying our vacation at the lazy lab ranch and spa we would LOVE to have a family of our own. We are very sweet, we sleep well, eat well and can be trusted to have free run of the house. We love to take walks, lounge on the couch and have our heads petted. Ally's favorite place is on the couch with a paw touching you...and maybe a little of her body....and maybe a little more of her body, oh who are we kidding she's a lap dog!! Zany is athletic and fun loving, loves to be in the room with you keeping you company and playing with the resident doggies. So while these girls may have some frosting on their faces they are the dynamic duo....you can't go wrong with them.

Daisy and BlueBell are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. Both pups are house and crate trained but they don’t need to be crated anymore.

They are looking for a loving family that will spoil them with attention and love, and will help both pups get into fighting form with a low calorie diet and exercise.

Update from their foster family 2/18/2015

WARNING!! Adopting these two girls will cause you to fall in love. They are wonderful dogs that love being with people and get along great with the other labs in their foster home. Do not let their white faces fool you. They are only 8 years old and enjoy life. Daisy can be a little reserved around new people, but once she knows you, she is a very devoted companion. While watching television or working on the computer, she will sleep on or underneath her fosters’ feet. When the foster family comes home from work or first sees Daisy in the morning, she is so happy that she cries with soft moans and whimpers. However, beware of her tail as it is going a mile a minute! Daisy enjoys going on longer walks through the neighborhood with the other dogs in her foster home. However, she is cautious when she sees the neighborhood horse, goats and deer.

Bella is the more the playful and lover of the two sisters. Bella loves everybody and is quick to come up to people for attention. If you sit on the floor, Bella will crawl into your lap for snuggles and loving. After she loses the rest of her weight, it will be much easier to move her if you need to! Bella enjoys the more active games (e.g., running after the other dogs). She will playfully nibble on the other dogs trying to get them to play with her. Bella also enjoys her walks, but takes shorter and more leisurely walks. As with most bonded pairs, they prefer to be together and do not like leaving one behind. When they get back together again after solo walking, they are quick to check each other out to ensure everything is still okay.

These girls are so easy to care for and provide so much love, that it is impossible not to fall in love with them.

I love to be near my people but you won't be falling over me. I'm house trained, I know commands such as sit, stay, paw & speak ( foster mom makes me do this when asking for a treat), I also do this little Elvis lip thing that makes foster mom laugh so much. Foster Mom loves the fact that as soon as we come inside, I know to sit so she can wipe my paws. I sleep through the night in foster moms room in my nice comfy dog bed.  The things I am looking for in my forever family are:  (1) a soft place to lay my head like a nice dog bed; (2) belly rubs; (3) good meals & treats ; and (4) I would like three 20-minute walks a day, but am completely happy with two.

Charlie #2 (#150100)

Watch Charlie play on 
Charlie is Lab Rescue's 100th dog this year.  He is a 1 year old chocolate neutered male.  Charlie weighs 44 pounds and is approved for kids 10 and up.  Charlie is a handsome, sweet pup.  When he first meets you he will sit patiently for pets, and then will reward you with kisses.  He knows Sit and Come and is keeping his room clean at the kennel.  Since he is a youngster, he will require a training addendum.  Charlie suffered from a birth defect (we think); his rear left leg was deformed and because of the deformation, he carried his leg along side rather than using it.  When he did use it, he used it as a crutch.  Surgically there was nothing that could be done to repair Charlie's deformed leg so he recently went through surgery to amputate the leg and is doing great. 

Update about Charlie, March 25, 2015: 

Charlie had his leg amputated by our vet with no problems. He is back at his foster home where he has been well acting like nothing has happened. The leg is healing very nicely and faster than expected. Charlie is learning to sit and walk without his injured leg and so far the only problem we are experiencing is keeping him calm. He will be available for adoption as soon as he gets a clean bill of health from the vet.

 See how Charlie is doing post-surgery on YouTube.

Charlie (#150086)


Charlie is an 8 year old chocolate male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm positive. Lab Rescue will pay for Charlie’s treatment if performed at one of our vets. Charlie is approved for children aged 7 and up and is good with other dogs. He weighs 55 lbs and needs to gain some. Charlie does well sleeping in the crate and loves to go for walks. He is good with other dogs, but has a preference for female dogs. Charlie is a laid back guy who loves playing with toys and balls. He is looking for a family to spoil him and take great care of him so he can get back into his fighting form!

Update from Charlie's foster family - March 20, 2015:

(Good Time) Charlie is an 8 year old chocolate lad who gets along fine with other dogs and cats and has been with children 7 and above. He loves to fetch the tennis ball, run and lounge. He crates well and doesn’t chew anything other than his toys. He still hasn’t caught on to the value of belly scratches but loves to have his face and ears scratched. Contact your AC to see if Charlie might be a good fit for you and your family! 

Mar 13, 2015:

Charlie is a very sweet and attentive guy whose personality has been unmasked with each passing day. While he still doesn’t really cuddle, he does have a pretty good lean and sits or lays very still while watching TV; Charlie definitely enjoys being with us. He is a little confused by belly scratches and attempts to wrestle on the floor, but he loves to have his face scratched and his ears rubbed; he has started to hug his FPs too, wrapping his arms around us to give love. Charlie loves to chase the tennis ball and he will ‘give it’ 9 times out of 10 now (before he would ‘give it’ about 1/20 times). He loves to follow us around and hangs out with the five resident dogs without incident, but there still isn’t much interaction among the dogs, except when he is one-on-one with Bonnie, our recent foster failure, who has gotten him to play a couple times. While his first cat test was inconclusive, he rocked his second one and his third one- although he went straight for the food and totally ignored the cat on the last one. He was kind of confused our first visit to the horses, trying to figure out what those big stinky things were, and his second visit he just stood rigid when the larger-than-life white Appaloosa played ‘stare down’ with him.

Colin #150006


Colin is a 5 year old neutered chocolate 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 10 and up. No cats for Colin. Colin is a country boy at heart and would prefer a home in the suburbs or in a rural area. He walks well with the help of a harness, is friendly, and thinks of himself as a lap dog. Colin is fairly calm, is a great rider, and can’t wait to meet his forever family!

Update from Colin's foster - March 20, 20215:

Colin is doing well. He is somewhat shy with new people, but warms up to them once he’s checked them out. He loves attention, and seems somewhat anxious when not with his foster in the same room, but will settle if he’s given a treat. Eventually he will go in the other room and nap on the bed or the sofa. He would probably do well with adopters who are home more than not. He jumps at new sounds, but hopefully will relax as he settles in. He’s a great napper once he’s had some exercise. He walks ok on leash. He is super food motivated so it's easy to train him, he's learning to look at his foster when on leash. Earlier in the week he enjoyed the sun on the deck, he liked that a lot!! He’s been sleeping with his foster, he loves to cuddle on the bed! He’s a little mouthy when he gets excited, but we redirect with some good chewy treats and he stops. He takes treats extremely gently. He would do great with a family who can exercise him and give him some attention and consistent training. Catching a ball or frisbee in the backyard for 10 minutes or so several times a day, and a mile or so walk seems to be enough for him.

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 - 2/7/2014

Life has been unfair to Colt. Last year he was surrendered by his owner because he could no longer care for Colt and his soul mate Holly. Not too long after that Holly died, leaving him again with a major adjustment. In the twilight of a labs life, these sort of things shouldn't be happening. Although this senior gentleman has adapted and is well cared for and loved by his foster family, it's not home. But, lets be brutally honest, at his age there really isn't a lot we can say to convince you he's the dog for you. Colt is 13-14 years old, has seizures, is pretty deaf, weak in the hind quarters and heartworm positive but can't be treated due to his age. He may know commands but since he can't hear them, he doesn't respond. That's pretty much what you'd expect from a guy his age. But he has a very endearing side as well. Colt is a very sweet and friendly boy that loves to give you kisses. He 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. He has spent a majority of his life living in a outside pen when he lived with his buddy Holly. Holly was his leader and he followed her everywhere. When she died, he attached himself to his foster sister and now follows her everywhere. Even after 8 months, he still gets up to follow foster mom when she leaves the room. So if you love velcro, you'll love Colt.

Colt is a very good boy and deserves a happy ending. Won't you open you heart and home and allow this guy the love he so deserves.

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

Cookie is adjusting to being in a foster home well. As her name suggests, Cookie is very sweet and gentle. She loves kids, small dogs (hasn’t yet met a large one while she has been at her foster home), snuggling up on beds and sofas and snow. In fact, she LOVES snow. She does not even notice the cold because of her long hair, so she happily spends her time outside exploring, rolling in and eating the snow. She has been eating well and rides well in the car. When she greets you and when she is happy, she gives a big smile and shows you her pretty white teeth and when she wants your attention she barks for you. Cookie is a happy girl would love a home where she can explore in a fenced yard and sleep in a comfy bed.

Update from Duke's foster family 2/27/2015

 Duke is doing really well in his foster home! He got happy tail again, it is being treated. His tail is constantly wagging. He is very very very friendly and loves everybody he meets. He has gotten better about staying out of the kitchen when food is being prepared. When the command "out" is given he goes and waits in the dining room. He always has to have something in his mouth, usually a tennis ball. He loves to chew on bones, chew toys or tennis balls but has never chewed anything he isn't supposed to. He and the resident female lab are getting along and play outside. He loves to go on walks and is good on leash, he will get a little excited when he sees another dog. He has gotten in a small stream. He would probably like the water when it warms up. He has never tried to jump the fence. He loves to get his back scratched and will try and go between your legs for more or underneath your legs if you are sitting. He goes in his crate but doesn't need to be crated. He has been left up to 6 hrs with zero issue. He sleeps on his dog bed at night and makes a contented moaning sound when he lays down. He loves to play fetch and will bring the ball back to you and drop it when you tell him. He also helps when bringing firewood in by getting a stick or bark and bringing it in.

Empire is sweet and handsome. 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. He would do best in a home with fewer stairs and carpeting, but he is able to do a few stairs. In new situations, he is very curious, and extremely friendly with everyone he meets. He does fine meeting other dogs during walks, but in the home he wants all the human attention, so he will be happiest if he could be the only dog. He's smart and wants to please. he enjoys the outdoors and short walks. He is the perfect companion for someone who's home more often than not. He doesn't need a fenced yard, but a courtyard or balcony where he can hang out would be grand. He's looking for a family that will take him for walks. He takes his time and doesn't have to be a long walk, but they help him keep fit. He needs to be walked with a harness. He also loves to go for car rides. Empire loves chin and belly rubs.

Fred needs to lose a few pounds, 40 to be exact; so he's looking for a walking partner and someone to prepare his green beans on a twice daily basis.  Approved for ages 10 and up. 

Mar 25, 2015: Fred is a lovely yellow lab who will be a knockout when he has lost 40 pounds. He loves green beans which will help him with the weight loss. Yesterday he went on a walk with a harness on him and walked for about 1/2 mile. He did very well. A little pulling at first but then he settled in and was fine. He knows sit and actually did well following around the yard without a leash. He will need a harness as he slips out of a collar. He is full of energy and fun natured. He loves being snuggled and hugged. He quickly identified with a stuffed toy and wants to carry it everywhere. He is pretty good about bringing it back if you throw it for him which he thinks is great fun. It went in the pond with him so it is a real mess now especially after he removed the stuffing from it. He crates well and has slept through the night both nights. 

3/17/2015: FRED is one big, happy guy! He’s very social, wants a part of everything, is easily petted and loved on, and is REALLY excited to be out of the kennel! 

   

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 2/21/2015

Both are doing really well. Lotus is making progress on his leash skills and outdoor manners. He is so smart and handsome! Neither are really into the snow, they did not seem to notice. Gracie is an angel, gets super excited for her walks, it's like she is going to explode! They both sit to get their leashes on, but Gracie's butt just can't stop wiggling with anticipation. It is adorable! They both know commands: sit,, stay, give (they give their paw), and down. They are so much fun and two of the sweetest, funniest, most affectionate dogs I have ever had the pleasure to know. Their foster dad and I are completely, utterly, smitten! It is hard to do anything but love them; a lot of chores around the house are getting neglected because we cannot stop petting and hanging out with them.

You would never know Gracie is blind. She goes up and down our front and back 3 steps just fine, though she would do best in a house without stairs. We block off the stairs to the second floor and neither have shown any interest in going up. Giving Gracie her insulin is a breeze, she does not even react to the shot.

They ride beautifully in the car (and love going out and about), are house trained and fine left on their own. They both sleep through the night on the couch or their dog beds (mostly just the couch, which they LOVE). In the morning they greet you with such enthusiasm. Gracie wiggles so hard her back legs come off the floor! Lotus, though a bit more subdued, gets in on the act. Both have awesome lab leans and are ridiculously affectionate. They think they are lap dogs and love to cuddle on the couch. It has been great for keeping their foster parents warm on these cold evenings! There is no such thing as too much love or cuddles for these two! In the house they are perfectly mannered: no counter surfing or begging (they show interest, but just say No and they leave it alone), are quiet unless someone comes to the door, then Lotus barks and Gracie follows his lead. They quietly chew their antlers on their beds and know better than to bring them on the couch.

Gunner (#150188) and Ebony (#150189)


Gunner and Ebony are a boy-girl bonded pair who are 9 years old, current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Gunner weighs in at 107 pounds and needs to get down to around 90 and she should weigh 80, so lots of green beans are in the future until they reach their goal weights! They are good on leash, house trained and crate trained but they no longer need to be crated as they are wonderful house guests. This pair is unknown with cats, good with dogs, and approved for children ages 10 and up.

Update from Gunner and Ebony's foster family - March 21, 2015:

Gunner and Ebony had a pretty busy day today: two walks off leash, spent time with the resident dogs, met the resident cats (passing their first cat scan) and then spent time trying to figure out the dog door. 

Mar 20, 2015:

Gunner and Ebony are an exceptionally sweet older bonded brother and sister who ask for nothing more than belly scratches and human skin to kiss. They are wonderful on walks, which is great because they both are a bit on the tubby side, and both have been walking off-leash since the third day they came to us. Ebony likes to fetch the tennis ball, but Gunner would rather watch. They love the water, splashing around on the pool cover when the pump stops. They don’t have to be crated and have been fine locked inside for up to nine hours at a time. Gunner has cranky elbows so they wouldn’t do well with a lot of stairs. They haven't had much exposure to children so they are approved for children 10 and up; they will be meeting the resident dogs and cats this weekend, so stay tuned for that update. They are very easy keepers with excellent manners who really do spread joy wherever they go.

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 2/28/2015

Hachiko has settled in, has become one of the pack in his foster home and seems to be enjoying himself there. He has moved out of the bathroom and onto his own bed. He is eating regularly 3x a day and gaining weight nicely but still has some to go. His stability when walking is constantly improving and is a long way from where he was. He can be unstable on his feet at times. Because of this, a home without a large amount of stairs would be best. He gets along with all of the dogs in his foster home and has no issues with any of them. Today he attempted to chase the cat but because he isn't very fast, he was not able to catch him. He eagerly runs outside to do his business. A home where someone is not gone all day long would be best for Hachiko. He likes treats and continues to work to leave his previous life behind him. He is wagging his tail more and he seems generally happy to see his foster family.

He is good with dogs and might be okay with cats.  Jack is approved for children ten and up and is heartworm negative and up to date on vaccines. He's looking for an active family with a fenced yard in which he can run, play and explore.

Update from Jack's foster - Mar 15, 2015:

Jack is very friendly and energetic! He is a bit clumsy and what we call a goof ball! He is trained to sit and shake for his food and treats. Jack enjoys learning new commands. He is curious but eager to learn. He is good with a bath. Jack enjoys playing with other large dogs and lived with two in his temporary foster home. He also played with the neighbor's labs along the fence. He is very curious with cats but didn't go after the resident cat in his temporary home. He loves to chase balls and play tug of war. He will benefit from a fenced in yard so he can safely chase balls and run around. Jack can jump a 3-foot fence. Jack likes to walk around the house while carrying items in his mouth. Jack will need an active family who has the energy to keep up with him. Like all young Labs, he will need to go to obedience training.

Mar 9, 2015:

He listens well and despite his size responds well to correction. He is very sweet! Jackson has never had any obedience training but does know the command "sit". No cat history so cats are unknown. He is good with other dogs. No history of living with children so approved for kids 10 and up.

Update from Kalani's foster family - Mar 15, 2015:

Kalani continues to be an excellent houseguest. He has good house manners, and is a gentle soul just looking for his place. He will not go near the indoor stairs but is content to sleep in a dog bed in the living room by himself at night. He did master the 4 deck stairs to the yard once we got rid of all the snow and ice! He is content to nap with the older resident dogs but was entertained with a younger houseguest and they enjoyed some play. He is a mellow guy - a couple of walks a day are plenty.

King is a 2 year old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 56 pounds but should gain a few and is approved for kids 10 and up.  He is good with other dogs and is heartworm negative.  King is a happy, energetic boy who enjoys running around.  He is "an angel" in the car and takes treats gently.  King will even wait for permission to take a stray treat off your lap.  He knows commands "sit" and "down."  King may have the tendency to go exploring, so he needs a family that will be attentive to open doors.

Update from King's foster family, March 25, 2015:

King is absolutely beautiful, with silky, short hair the color of honey. He looks well taken care of, and so sweet. Someone has spent a lot of time training him. He listens and is fantastic in the house, including house trained. He does whatever you tell him. Stay, lay down, paw, everything. He doesn't put anything in his mouth, he acts like an old shoe. He does pull on a leash, but when you correct him, he stops. Just need a little more practice with that. He's been eating in his crate. King can jump a 4 foot wall, so will need a fence at least 6 feet high. He's a wonderful dog and gets along great with the resident dogs.

Lincoln (#140588)   

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 3/2/2015

Lincoln would love to go for long walks with a family member now that Spring is around the corner. He is an awesome dog, super loving, friendly, playful, and sweet. He loves his people. He's fine around other dogs, but he just wants the attention of his people. He will chase cats, so not approved for them.  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 has a great personality and will show it more and more as you get to know him. He will make a great companion and is a great snuggler!

Update from Moe's foster family - 3/21/2015

Moselle is competing for the award of BEST FOSTER DOG EVER. He's conquering his fear of the kitchen tile and the long scary hallway. He may be a senior, but he loved playing in the snow. The last storm we had, he raced all over the backyard. Sometimes when I come home from work, he romps around the living room grabbing toys! Toys! He went on an over night visit with me to a friend's house with 4 dogs, and he was good with all of them. Moselle especially loved playing with the young female. At the last AALD, Moselle turned on the charm. Lots of people stopped by to see him, and he dazzled them with his cute ears and white toes. If that wasn't enough, he threw in a Lab lean to show off his personality. Moselle's perfect home is quiet, and has someone that will love him and treat him right. He would prefer few to no stairs, and he would gladly live with another dog and/or cat. Moselle is just a sweet, sweet boy that wants to be loved.

Update from NIbbler's foster family 2/25/2015

Nibbler continues to do well and thrive in his foster home! He is learning how to walk by your side without pulling. He has a ways to go on this, but is practicing. Once his shoulder scaring heals his new owner could switch to an easy walk harness/collar combo which will help with his walking skills. When outside Nibbler is curious about everything and just wants to run. He can jump straight up in the air as well. Nibbler has been a really great house guest. We haven’t seen any counter surfing or destructive behavior at all. The only thing he likes to do is carry his foster mom’s slippers around the house.  He has learned that he isn’t allowed in certain rooms and respects boundaries even without gates.

Update from Raven's foster family -- Mar 25, 2015:

Raven has blossomed!!!!! This little girls personality emerges more and more every day. She is playful but not high energy. She loves to chew on a nylabone or Elk antler. Tennis balls are great and she will bring it back if tossed (sometimes) but prefers to just prance with it in her mouth. Loud noises such as Vacuums, hairdryers do not both her. She has become very relaxed and rolls over for belly rubs. We are working on commands and she knows a few. Today foster mom is working from home and she is lounging on a dog bed snoring ever so softly by her side. Raven is approved for children 7 and up and would love a fenced in yard to prance in. Please contact your adoption coordinator to find our more. 

Mar 22, 2015:

Raven is such a wonderful girl. Yesterday she took a lot of naps, whatever window the sun was beaming through is where she could be found. She is enjoying being able to roam the house and has picked her favorite dog bed. Since she has been such a good girl that last night we took her favorite bed to our room and let her sleep uncrated. Foster dad was awakened by some light butterfly kisses on his face about 6:00 am. She has not gotten in bed with us unless she is invited. Yesterday we took a nice long walk. We used an easy walk harness and did not have any problems. We encountered a few people and she just kept walking. Passing cars did not seem to phase her whats so ever. Even the few dogs who have E-fences in their front yards were out. Since we know which homes have them we simply cross the street when approaching, she showed interest, but did not pull. Raven would enjoy having a fenced yard where she can romp and play.

Squall is a 3 year old red fox neutered male.  He weighs 72 pounds, is approved for kids 10 and up and  is good with other dogs.  He is heartworm positive and Lab Rescue will pay for his treatment if done at one of our vets.  Squall is a friendly boy who loves getting attention.  He likes being around his people and knows the commands "sit" and "down."  He's won over the hearts of everyone he's met and appears to be house trained.  Squall is currently taking a Glucosamine Chondroitin-Sulfite supplement as he showed some discomfort when his left hip was extended during his exam.  His X-ray showed that his hip socket is a little shallow and he had a slight flattening of the femoral head, indicating he may beed a FHO surgery in the future.

   

Sweet Pea (#150058)

Sweet Pea is a 6 year old black spayed female.  She weighs 54 pounds and is approved for kids 10 and up.  She is heartworm negative and is good with other dogs.  Sweet Pea is a sweet, friendly girl who loves getting attention.  She sits nicely to get pets and loves toys and playing tug with other dogs.  Sweet Pea has recently recovered from from a removal of her ear canal and ear flaps due to an extreme ear infection.  She is now pain free and loving life.

Update from Sweet Pea's foster family Mar. 23, 2015:

Sweet Pea has really blossomed over the last few weeks. She is a super friendly, super playful girl that LOVES toys. Sweet Pea greets everyone she meets with a wiggling body and kisses. The loss of her hearing hasn't phased her at all. She has adapted to the house dog lifestyle quite well and can't wait to get a family to call her own. 

Mar. 1, 2015:

Sweet Pea has made so much progress in the last week. She is really coming out of her shell. She is getting along well with the resident dogs and LOVES to play tug. She and Maddie play constantly. She sniffs at the cats, but is good with them. Sweet Pea has not met a human she doesn't love - she is super friendly to everyone she meets. We are working on basic obedience ( trying to work with hand 
signals) and walking on a leash. She sleeps very quietly all night on a dog bed next to our bed. Sweet Pea is a great dog and given all the changes she's gone through in the last month, she is really adapting quite well and appears to be very happy.

Tater Tot (#150249)

Tater Tot is an 18 month old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 66 pounds and is approved for kids 10 and up.  He is good with other dogs and is heartworm positive.  Lab Rescue will pay for his treatment if done at one of our vets.  Tater Tot is a happy, friendly dog who loves to please his people.  He is a big fan of getting petted, retrieving and playing in general.  Tater Tot is looking for an active family that will provide him training and exercise.  He knows commands sit, down and come but will also have a training addendum.  Tater Tot is crate trained and may be house trained since he's keeping his room clean at the kennel.  He is from the country, so placements are limited to single family suburban or rural homes.


   

Thunder (#150165) & Sparks (#150166)

Thunder and Sparks are a bonded pair of 3 year old black neutered males.  Thunder weighs 108 pounds and Sparks weighs 104 pounds.  They are both good with other dogs and approved for kids 10 and up.   These boys are litter mates and are both very affectionate and love to snuggle.  Thunder and Sparks are house and crate trained and know commands sit, stay, come, down and heel.  These boys enjoy regular exercise and like to retrieve balls, but don't always bring them back.  These big, strong boys walk best on an Easy Walk harness. Although they are big, the two don't take up much room because they are so good at snuggling up together.

Update from Thunder and Sparks' foster family - March 20, 2015:  

Meet the wonder twins: Thunder and Sparks! They are calm, good natured, well behaved, great with all of the neighbor dogs in their foster home, and think they are tiny lap dogs. They are very large, but because of their low key personalities, it isn't even remotely an issue.


March 15, 2015:

Sparks and Thunder have arrived at their foster home and are loving being in a home again. They love snuggling with each other and their foster family. They are making their foster mom laugh because they will squeeze into the smallest of spaces just to be able to snuggle with each other.

Toby (#140978)

Toby is an 11 year old neutered black male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  He is good with other dogs and must go to a home with another dog.  He is approved for kids aged 10 and up, and weighs 51 lbs.   Toby is a petite older gentleman. It takes him a little while to get comfortable with new people but he does adjust and likes to stay close to them. He loves other dogs and wags when he sees them. He will give a person a little lick once he becomes comfortable but is more free with affection to other dogs. Toby must be in a home with another non-dominant dog and a fenced yard. He needs a quiet environment where he can continue to gain confidence and learn to be happy again. His vision and hearing are somewhat impaired, but it doesn't slow him down. He is used to having company and not be left for a long work day. Toby doesn't like thunderstorms. Toby is housetrained and crate trained. He loves to go for walks. He's used to sleeping on the floor by his person's bed.

Wasabi (#150222)


Wasabi is a 4 year old black neutered male.  Wasabi is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative and currently being treated by Lab rescue for Lyme. Wasabi is not into cats but he must go to a home with another dog to keep him company.   He weighs 75lbs and is approved for children aged 5 and up.

Wasabi is a sweet and very handsome guy.  He looks younger than his 4 years and is a guy who just loves getting attention! He plays well with other dogs and really enjoys having company from humans and other dogs.  He is good on leash but will get excited when he sees a squirrel or cat (or small animal) and will try to give chase so an EZ walk Harness would be best for him.   He can also get excited and jump up to greet you so some training would help him out.  He does know the commands for "sit" and "down".  Wasabi is a real loverboy and will put his head up, close his eyes and relax when being pet.  Wasabi does have a history of jumping fences so he shouldn't be left alone out in the yard.

   

William (#150153)

William is only 7 months old and he needs our help to have a long and healthy life. Our surgeons have evaluated William to determine the best course of treatment for him and if any treatment was even possible. Euthanasia was a real possibility for William to save him from a life of pain without mobility. But, our surgeons felt they could help and we want William to have every chance in life.

His surgeon says William developed a condition where growth plates in his forearms stopped growing sooner than normal (distal ulnar growth plates had premature closure). This creates a stress on the other bone in the forearm (the radius) which can force the bone to twist around the ulnar bone as the radial bone attempts to continue to grow. This can lead to problems with the radius growth plate, orientation of the joints, stresses on supporting ligaments and ultimately difficulties with arthritis or the ability to bear weight normally.

William has problems affecting both of his forearms. The longer standing problem started on the left side and he has developed a growth deformity that is more severe on that side. The right side has only recently started to form the same problem and has not become as severe.

William requires two surgeries. The first to repair his right leg by cutting out a segment of the Radius bone which will allow the leg to continue to grow in a more normal way. Then, his left leg will need a more involved surgery that will require cutting both the Ulna and the Radius bones to re-orient them and improve the alignment of the elbow and wrist joints.

With both of William's forearms in jeopardy, surgery is the best option for giving this special boy a chance at an active life.
