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.

 Black Bear is a 2 year old black neutered male.  He weighs 70 pounds and is approved for kids 12 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.  Black Bear is a young, energetic pop who likes to play.  He enjoys getting attention from his humans and just being around them in general.   Black Bear is good at retrieving and knows the commands sit and come.  Like most young dogs, he would benefit from formal training, so he will have a training addendum.  He walks pretty well on leash, and is better with an Easy Walk Harness.  He wants a family who will give him lots of exercise and attention. He's a country boy so will do best in a single family home in a neighborhood or somewhere outside the city.

Blue (#150473) and Ginger (#150475)

Blue and Ginger are a pair of bonded seniors who love to be together. Ginger is a 9 year old spayed black female and Blue is an 8 year old neutered yellow male. They adore attention! No cats for this pair as Blue has a prey drive. They are good with dogs and approved for ages 10 and up. They are heartworm negative. Both walk well on leash, crate easily, are potty trained and are current on vaccines. They know many commands but could use a refresher course. Ginger loves to retrieve and Blue loves the water. 

Update from Blue and Ginger's foster - 7/22/15:

Ginger and Blue are a nice pair of dogs and they have good house manners. They are crate trained, house trained, know some basic commands, and don't bark. We don't let them up on the furniture and while interested in food during prep and dinner, they lay down quietly while we eat and don't beg. Blue is the more busy dog and Ginger is a very sweet quiet girl. Blue has an interesting birth mark of black fur that is reminiscent of Charlie Brown and he likes to have his belly rubbed. They both follow us around and love attention. They are more energetic than their age would suggest. We are taking walks everyday, working on the leash skills and making progress.

Bolin (#150230)

Bolin is a 4 year old neutered black male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. Bolin is good with other dogs and is approved for ages 10 and up. No cats for Bolin. He weighs 80 lbs. Bolin is a handsome and active guy looking for a family that will give him the time, attention, and exercise that he needs. Bolin is looking for a home with a physically fenced yard and is not suitable for apartment/condo/townhouse living. 

Update from Bolin's foster family - July 22, 2015:

Bolin is Mr. Tall dark and handsome, with beautiful copper eyes. It’s been a long road but he’s truly evolved into a dog that loves to hang with his people. He is a velcro lab that will follow you everywhere you go especially if he thinks he may get a treat. He is a bird dog for sure, he will watch TV with intense concentration if there is a show with birds on it, like a hunting show, duck or goose hunting he loves to watch. Outside he watches the sky looking for birds, big or little it doesn’t matter. 

He is good around other dogs but he does enjoy being the center of attention. He’s a big boy that is strong and we are working on walking on the leash. He is crate trained and does very well in it while we are at work. In the back yard he likes to run after sticks and he's become a fan of squeaky tennis balls. He will run and go get them but not always a fan of giving them back to you.

Brazil (#150450)

Brazil is an 18-month old spayed female who is current on her vaccines and heartworm negative. She weighs 57 pounds, which is a good weight for her.  She is good with dogs and unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up. Brazil must go to a home with another dog to show her the ropes and is limited to single family homes. She knows sit and come, is working on other commands, and is okay on the lead.  Brazil came to us with an abbreviated tail, but she makes up for it with the cuteness at her front end!

Update on Brazil - June 19, 21015: Brazil has just made a big transition she went from "if I stand real still no one will notice me" scared to "okay this isn't such a bad life after all."

Since we got her she has been very quiet and wasn't interested in much when people were around. She was good at the vet and the Animal Care folks says she was quiet and had started to respond to their petting. Picked her up this morning and took her to Roxanne's Rehab Spa where she met Roxanne and Cheyenne, within 15 minutes her whole body posture changes it went from scared to relaxed as she realized she was in a safe place. If anyone is looking for an easy going companion she is their dog.

Cashew is a very happy boy who loves to have his head and belly rubbed. He enjoys the company of other dogs and runs along with his foster siblings in the yard. Cashew loves soft, fuzzy blankets and dogs beds, but isn't afraid of making his way onto the couch to lie next to us or relax while we are out. He also likes to sit on the loveseat on the porch and watch the squirrels and birds from the shade. Cashew is very excited to go on walks even though he can only do short ones. He has a very gentle mouth with treats. He wags his tail from the minute he wakes until he is snoozing. He prefers to be in the company of people and will follow you room to room, either to lie down at your feet or curl up next to you on the couch. He met my boy friends cats and went over to sniff it them walked away later the cat laid down with Cashew to take a nap. He will play ball for a little bit, but has limited stamina.

Harley is a sweet, petite 3 year old neutered male.  He weighs 40 pounds and loves to give kisses.  Harley is good with other dogs and is approved for kids 10 and up.  He is not approved for cats.  Harley is shy at first, but quickly warms up to new people.  He is house and crate trained and is a fantastic walker.  Harley rides well in the car and has great manners in the house.  He knows Sit and will come when you call his name.  Harley takes treats very gently and loves being petted.  He sleeps through the night in his crate without issue. He is mellow in the house and just moseys around when his people are up and about.  Harley is quite the acrobat and can climb a chain link fence, so he would do best in a home with a 6 foot fence, or where he will be kept on leash when outside.  Harley is not a city dog. He needs a more rural setting, where he is not seeing tons of other dogs and critters on his walks.

Helen (#150414)

Helen is a nine-year-old spayed black female who weighs 41 pounds. She needs to gain at least ten pounds. Helen is good on leash, good with cats and dogs, and approved for ages 10 and up. She is up to date on vaccines  but is heartworm positive.  Lab Rescue will pay for her treatment if done at one our vets.  This gentle girl knows several commands and is content with just a couple of short walks each day. She must go to a home in the suburbs or a rural area as she is from the country and unaccustomed to city life.

Update from Helen's Foster - Jun 18, 2015:

Helen (Miss Helen) continues to settle in. She is usually found on a couch, loves antlers, and now hops up in the car and wags her tail when we unload groceries. She has started running around the yard and the Glucosamine is working as she no longer favors it or holds her leg out. She is just fabulous!!! She wants to sleep on our bed and we have convinced her to sleep on Sandy's couch in our bedroom and she happily jumps up there every night after bedtime snacks. She also loves to snuggle in my lap and get ear rubs. She was timid at first and now seems to feel a lot better with gaining weight and understanding the routine I do believe that sometime in the past a male was rough with her. Miss Helen loves people. We have had visitors and she goes up to everyone with a wagging tail and smiling face. We have a new Trane heat pump system that is not working, the technicians have been here every day working on the system and Helen just loves on the man then goes and curls up on the couch and watches him work. 

She likes to chase birds, squirrels and the chickens. The chickens' house and runs are in the dog yard and she likes to run up to them and get them to fly up, then she walks off. She has sniffed the horses and ignores them. She does not beg from us when we eat, automatically sits for treats and will offer her paw to you for a snack. She has a very soft mouth. We feed her breakfast on the deck and she wags her tail the whole time she is eating. She is house trained, sleeps all night and does not need to be crated. She walks politely on her easy walk harness. I think Helen would do great in a home with someone retired or working from home where she, be with her people to snuggle and a quiet routine. She will make someone or two a fabulous companion and loving lab! 



Herman (#150600)

Herman is a friendly and handsome 7 year old neutered black male who is approved for ages 9 and up! He is great on walks when using his EZ walk harness and does not need to be crated--he also does not like it! Herman is good with kids, good with other dogs, and unknown with cats. Although he is current on vaccines, Herman is heartworm positive. That's the bad news. The good news is that Lab Rescue will pay for Herman's treatment if it is done at one of our vets!

 Watch Herman during playtime!



Hunter #4 (#150557)

Hunter is a two year old neutered chocolate boy who weighs 58 pounds. He's current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Hunter is good with other dogs but unknown with cats. He's approved for ages 10 and up. He is a good car rider and behaved like such a good boy during bath time at the vet. More on this handsome guy as we get to know him better. Because he is from the country Hunter's forever home must be a single family dwelling in the suburbs or a rural area.






Janey (#150472)

Janey is an 18 month old spayed yellow female who is petite at only 40 pounds. She is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Janey is timid with people but does great with other dogs. She is unknown with cats and is approved for ages 10 and up. She does well in the crate, on the leash and in the car.  Janey is from the country and unaccustomed to the noise of densely populated ares so she will do best in a quiet setting in a rural or suburban area.

Update from Janey's foster - Jul 30, 2015:

Janey is a super sweet little girl. She is still very timid but is getting better. She LOVES to play with the other dogs and should go to a home with another dog as they give her more confidence. She is still a bit shy but has started to seek her foster out for attention at times, especially if the other dogs are getting loving. She will require a patient, understanding home willing to let her progress at her own pace. She is housebroken and crate trained and is very quiet and calm! 
 



Jerry (#150198) 

Jerry is a three year-old neutered black male who weighs 64 pounds. He is good with dogs but prefers those that are his size or smaller and he is now reported to be good with cats or at least one cat so far! He's heartworm negative and up to date on all his vaccines.  Jerry is approved for kids 10 and up.  Jerry continues to be uneasy around men. He is not suitable for apartment or townhouse living or electric fences.

Update from Jerry's foster mom - Jul 24, 2015:

Jerry is a real sweetheart and a very affectionate Velcro dog. When I first met him I just calmly held my hand out to him and he immediately came up and licked my hand… repeatedly. He walked right into the stream, picked a nice deep spot, and laid down to chill off. Later that evening I set up the kiddie pool in the back yard and he and my dog have been in there plus the stream a few more times. He and my Lab are great buddies, as Knight is such a laid back boy. He has met both cats, and is now pretty much OK with both of them. He's enjoying the relaxing environment and loves to give me kisses.

London is a 5 year old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 45 pounds, is heartworm negative and is approved for kids 15 and up.  London is a pretty and very gentle girl.  She raised her 10 puppies, who have all found homes, so now it is her turn.  London finds the world to be a scary place, so she is looking for humans who live in a quite neighborhood and have a solid fenced yard.  She would also like her humans to lead a quite lifestyle and have a confident and calm companion dog to show her the ropes.  London enjoys spending time outside walking around or resting under her favorite bush.  She is pretty low energy and is calm and quite in her crate.  London prefers her humans speak to her in a quiet and gentle voice and responds well to gentle encouragement.  She seems to know some words like breakfast and walk.  She has a good appetite, but prefers to eat privately in her crate.  London likes when her humans lay on the floor with her and pet her.

Aug 2, 2015: London has nice house manners. She is beginning to walk around the house and she also likes to hang out under the dining room table.

Luke continues to be a wonderful foster. He loves to play in the fenced-in yard and retrieve tennis balls. He enjoys his walks and is friendly to the people he meets. He's good with other dogs he meets and prefers the mellower ones. His favorite things include going for a walk, retrieving balls, and chillaxing with foster parents. 

Jun 21, 2015:

Luke has turned into a great house guest. He is very polite around the house and walks nicely on the leash. He has been friendly to several people we have met while walking. He needs slow introductions to other dogs when he meets them on his walks. We have had several house guests and after an introduction to them he gets along well. Luke is a natural retriever, he loves to have someone throw the ball for him but isn't obsessive about it. He's content to hang out with his humans outside or if it's too hot he is happy to be in the house with some nice cool A/C running. He looks forward to his two walks a day and gets excited when he hears the sound of his leash being picked up. He would love to go to someone who would indulge his love of walking.

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!

Marley #7 (140793)  

Marley is an 18 month old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 55 pounds and should gain 5, and needs to go to a home with one or more dogs.  No cats for Marley, she will chase them. She is heartworm negative and approved for kids 10 and up.  Marley is a super sweet girl who will sneak into your heart as soon as you meet her by rolling over and asking for belly rubs.  She walks well on leash and and greets other dogs perfectly. Marley loves to play fetch and toys that squeak.  She is high energy, but settles nicely once she has run and played a bit.  Marley is very agile and can jump a baby gate or a four foot fence if she wants to, but doesn't seek out the opportunity; she needs a home with a fenced yard.  She needs a forever family with people who are home more than not and needs a doggy companion.  She will go into her crate for a treat or frozen kong, but isn't happy being in there for extended periods of time.  Marley is completely house trained and sleeps through the night on a dog bed in her foster's room.  She doesn't chew anything she's not supposed to, and knows sit and down.

Update from Marley's foster mom --Jul 29, 2015:

Marley would be happiest with another young, playful dog in her new home. She loves to run/tackle/wrestle and play with her foster siblings, and having another dog in the home when the humans aren't home helps her feel more secure and less alone. She needs room to run and play. She loves to fetch, and she is definitely high energy. Having a playful companion will help run her to exhaustion. Marley needs a physical fence and no cats or other small animals. Marley has a prey drive and is very interested in birds, squirrels and bunnies that dare to enter her line of sight. She corrects pretty well with a "leave it" command, but that requires you to have seen the animal before she spots it. She is very agile and can jump over a 4 foot fence should she desire to, but generally only does so if there is something she wants on the other side of it. 

Marley is ridiculously smart. She knows sit, down, leave it, drop it, and paw. She picks up on routines very quickly. She sits before each meal and knows which dish is hers. She eats very quickly and therefore uses a slow-feed bowl to prevent gulping. 

She's beautiful and sweet. She loves to cuddle and loves belly and ear scratches. Chewing on things is her favorite - she loves antlers and squeak toys. If the squeak toy has ears, she'll immediately remove them. She generally doesn't chew on things she shouldn't, but has been known to occasionally pick something up that doesn't belong to her if she's felt neglected that day or hasn't had enough exercise to wear her out (which is a good reminder for her human that exercise is key for this high energy girl). She loves everyone she meets (human and canine) and they always feel the same. Her house manners are impeccable - no accidents, no begging, and no countersurfing (but she will investigate the trash if there is something yummy in it and her human has been silly enough to forget to close the trash drawer). 

Marley loves water (except baths) and will splash in kiddie pools, the ocean, or ponds left by rainwater. She shares nicely with the other dogs, and sometimes gets a bit toothy when she barks, which is funny to see. She's always smiling. She deserves the very best home, and I know her perfect family is out there somewhere.

Max is a 9 year old black neutered male.  He weighs 127 pounds and needs to lose about 20.  He is good with other dogs, approved for kids 10 and up, and is heartworm negative.  Max is a great guy with excellent house manners.  He can be trusted to have free reign of the house.  Max can retrieve, but doesn't always bring it back.  He loves walks and gets very excited at the beginning, but settles quickly.  Since he's a bigger boy, an Easy Walk harness is recommended.  Max gets excited when he sees other dogs and will bark in excitement and gets along fine when introduced.  He's not a big fan of thunderstorms or vacuums.

Update on Mickey - Jul 5, 2015:

Mickey is a very sweet dog who really like people. She is affectionate and loves to snuggle on the sofa and if she has a choice will sleep on the bed with you. She is house and crate trained and had the run of the house when we are home but was crated when we left to make sure she didn't hurt her knee. Mickey was being walked on the leash as requested by the vet and she does pull strongly towards birds, squirrels and other dogs. 

She seems bold and would like to meet every dog she see. Note Mickey was eager to get out of the house whenever the front door is opened and should be watched until she is trained to sit and wait at doors. 

Mickey is recovering from her operation and is receiving some range of motion exercises of her left knee. Her motion is good and she tolerates it pretty well. She limps some, especially when she has been on her legs for a while. At this time, the vet is recommending walks twice a day for approximately 20 minutes, no jumping, stairs limited to once per day and range of motion exercises, 20 repetitions, twice a day. She is on a Glucosamine supplement and is taking Rimadyl twice a day, with food. She may require some tramadol, short term, for pain. 
She would love a home where she can run, play and chase any critters who think it's there yard. 

May 22, 2015: Mickey has been checked into one of our veterinary hospitals after damaging her cruciate ligament.  We're evaluating her and giving her quiet time.  She may need to have surgery in the hear future, before she can be adopted.

Update from Reid's foster family

Reid is doing great and we see improvements each day. He is still a little mouthy when he gets excited when playing but can be easily redirected.

She has discovered her love of squeaky toys and will happily de-stuff them if she is feeling extra feisty. She has free run of the house when no one is home and can be left for 6 hours without a bathroom break. Her foster mom works full time and she loves her midday walks from her dog walker. She is a pretty good walker and walks on a loose leash most of the time. She greets her friends and family with a big hug and a kiss. She can be nervous in new situations or with new people but becomes more comfortable in a matter of minutes. She looks to other dogs for cues on how to behave in situations. Her foster brother has taught her how much fun the world can be. One of her favorites things that she has learned is that the next door neighbor always has treats so it is best to pause in front of his house to see if he will come out to say “hello.” Last week, a repairman came to the house. She greeted him appropriately and then went over to her dog bed and resumed chewing on her Kong. Roseanne has also started to put herself to bed! Every night around 8 or 9pm, she hops off of her couch and goes upstairs to settle onto her bed for the night. Roseanne has put the past behind her and is looking forward to what the future holds.

I gave her a good brushing this afternoon and removed piles of fur. She was enjoying it so much, she didn't want me to stop. In the beginning, Ella needed assistance going up the four deck stairs. With the new medication and practice, she will now go up and down by herself, although she prefers a little nudge to help her get started.

Trevor is a 10 year old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 67 pounds and is good with other dogs.  He is approved for kids 10 and up and is heartworm negative.  Trevor is an affectionate gentleman who enjoys going for walks and is great on leash.  He is house trained and crate trained and enjoys hanging out in his crate.  Trevor tends to try going on adventures when off leash, so he should only be off leash in fenced areas.  He has an old injury on his rear right leg, but it has already healed so there is nothing to be done to it.  Trevor takes glucosamine supplements.
