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.

Bear #4 (#160292)

Bear is a sweet two year old neutered chocolate male who is good with cats, dogs, and humans aged 6 and up. He is known for chasing chickens so no forever homes with chickens, please. He is just getting used to being indoors and it is quite new to him as he used to live outside, as evidenced by his bleached fur. He will need training as everything about being an indoor dog is new, but he is a smart boy. Bear is heartworm positive but he is not worried because he knows Lab Rescue will cover his treatment as long as its done at one of our vets. More on this cute guy once he gets into a foster home.

Blackie (#160203)

Blackie is a 2 year old neutered black male who weighs 57 but should gain a perhaps 7-10 pounds. He is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up.  He thrives on affection and loves to interact with people and dogs. Blackie's also quite a retriever and a lover of tennis balls. Blackie is current on vaccines but is heartworm positive. However, he is not worried because he knows Lab Rescue will pay for his treatment as long as it is done at one of our approved vets.  He pulls a bit on leash but does well with a harness.  Call your adoption coordinator if you want to meet this very good boy.

 See the cuteness for yourself! Watch how nicely this boy takes treats.

Update from Blackie's foster family - Apr 20, 2016:

Blackie is doing so well at sitting & is so much calmer getting a treat. He has been had free run of the house while his foster mom went work and he did great! He happily chases the balls. He has darling puppy energy. He loves belly scratches & doesn't mind if you grab his feet & they are hard to resist because they are so big! He's an excellent snuggler & his foster describes him as easy on a leash when we walk. He loves all the attention - but also loves to sleep next to the resident lab. The resident lab is 8 & sometimes isn't interested in rolling around - Blackie backs off quickly when given the cue & is learning some good dog/dog manners. He seems to learn quickly - his sitting & treat taking are 100% better than when he got here last week - just wants to please. . Blackie needs training and needs to learn not to jump when he gets excited. He loves to be pet and hugged so he's figuring out if he doesn't jump he gets pets. He is such a happy, curious, and loving boy!! Since Blackie has not had much training, he is not approved for first time adopters. 
 




Blackie #2 (#160210)

 Get to know Blackie #2. See him in action at a recent adoption event.

Blackie #2 is a 7 year old neutered black male who weighs 66 pounds and is approved for ages 10 and up. He is good with dogs but he likes to chase cats, so no cats for this boy. He must go to a detached single family home in the suburbs or a rural area. Blackie needed to do a little catching up on his wellness now that he is in rescue and is currently being treated for an ear infection, mild conjunctivitis, and a skin condition for which he gets medicated baths. He is new to Lab Rescue and we look forward to learning more about this very good cute boy as he settles into his foster home. Blackie is current on vaccines and heartworm negative.

Update from Blackie's foster family - Apr 25, 2016:

Blackie #2 is such an easy 7 year old dog. He is completely house trained. He walks well on a leash and gets along with other dogs. He enjoys a good petting of his shiny black coat. Blackie enjoys chilling in the house and likes being near people. 



Blue (#160204)

Blue is a handsome 9 year old neutered black male who is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. He is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages ten and up. Blue weighs 80 pounds and needs to gain about five more. Before coming to Lab Rescue, Blue lived his entire life tethered outdoors. This guy deserves a life of luxury from here on out. His health was neglected and he recently had several teeth extracted and more are scheduled for about a month after the first round. More info on this extremely good boy as we get to know him in foster care. He is looking for a forever home with the kind of love and comfort he has done without until now.

Update (and cuter pix!) from Blue's foster family - April 19,2016:

Introducing Blue, our handsome foster boy! He is a sweet, quiet gentleman who absolutely adores being near his people. He is super affectionate and just wants to be loved on. He is housebroken, walks great on lead, is a fast learner and easy to care for. His soulful brown eyes will melt your heart. This hunk of furry love can't wait for his furever home. He deserves it!!!

Callie (#160215) 

Callie is a five year old spayed yellow female who weighs about 76 pounds, is current on vaccines, and heartworm negative. She is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up. She must go to a detached single-family home with another dog and must have a fenced yard where she can sun herself and keep watch. Callie is just learning about the indoor life but she is calm and gentle, appreciative of any attention she gets and giving tail wags and smiles in return.  Callie had a small benign growth removed from her ovary at the time of her spay and takes supplements for a little stiffness in her back end. She lived on a farm since she was a puppy and has always lived with other dogs. Callie was a breeder dog before coming to Lab Rescue.

Update from Callie's foster family - May 20, 2016:

Callie continues to charm everyone she meets with her happy smile. And her tail never stops wagging. She is feeling very perky lately and has a lot of bounce in her step. She was very sweet recently with fellow foster Boz, playing tug of war with him and wrestling on the bed. It took her a few days to warm up to little Boz but they ended up as great buddies by the time he was adopted. She loves her walks and does great on leash and doesn't seem to have prey drive. Because she used to live confined in a rabbit hutch, Callie cannot be crated, but she does fine with the run of the house. However, in new places she needs time to feel safe and sure that she can come and go and not be trapped. She will need a forever family willing to take it slow and spend a lot of time at home with her in the beginning. When she first came to her foster home she parked herself in the yard all day because she was a little afraid to get stuck inside the house. Now that she knows she can come and go as she pleases, she enjoys lounging indoors for much of the day and she has perfect house manners. 



Harpo (#160067)

Harpo is a handsome 62 pound neutered chocolate male. He's about ten years old, and like many a senior this guy prefers limited steps and the chance to sleep in. Harpo takes glucosamine supplements for some arthritis in his back but nothing stops this guy from enjoying walks and play time. He loves toys, food, and hanging with his people. Harpo is unknown with cats, good with dogs, and approved for ages ten and up. He's heartworm negative and current on vaccines. Harpo walks well on leash.

Update from Harpo's foster family - Apr 20, 2016:

Harpo is really enjoying the nice warm weather and loves spending time outside lounging in the sun. He loves to retrieve and knows to drop the toy at your feet when he brings it back to you. He enjoys meeting new people that visit his foster mom and dad and that he meets on his walks. He greets everyone quietly with no barking or jumping. However, he is a bit more demonstrative when he sees deer, foxes or squirrels when they invade his back yard from time to time. He continues to look forward to breakfast and dinner. This is one of the sweetest dogs around. Harpo does better when he wears a belly band in case he has a leaking accident. He's doing well and although he's an older dog, he has a lot to offer and appreciates all the love and caring he receives. 
 


 



Harry (#160172)

Harry is an 8 year old neutered yellow male who is heartworm negative and current on vaccines. This sweet senior guy weighs 80 pounds and is good with other dogs. However, Harry is allergic to cats, so no cats for this boy. He is currently being treated for allergies and an acute skin infection.The vet is pleased with his progress as he's responding very well to the treatment of medicated baths and antibiotics. Harry is submissive around other dogs and always did well at doggie day care. He is approved for ages 10 and up. Harry loves swimming and was a Dockdog competitor for five years. 

Update from Harry's foster - May 20, 2016:

Sweet 8 yr old Harry is praying for his forever home. He is the perfect mix of indoor calm and outdoor fun. He loves the car, walks, and to chase a tennis ball. Harry is a retired dock dog champion and loves the water. He is patient and does well alone and follows your lead. He is recovering from a skin infection. Easiest Foster ever. 

May 17, 2016: Harry is the perfect family dog. This 8 year old yellow Lab is a retired Champion "Dock Jumper" and swimmer who is looking for a loving home. Harry is house trained and very low maintenance. He is a sweet and loyal companion who loves to swim, fetch a tennis ball and curl up besides you for a bedtime story. 

 



Harvey (#160279)

Harvey is a one year old neutered yellow male with the cutest face. He weighs 65 pounds and is current on vaccines as well as heartworm negative. He is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up. Harvey hails from the country and must go to a forever home in the suburbs or a rural area where he can live in a single-family detached house. Harvey is a sweetheart who is not used to the hustle and bustle of being transported and moving about, but he is gentle with treat-taking and was pretty relaxed at the vet, where all the ladies were very taken with this waggy, handsome boy.



Hershey (#160221)

Hershey is a 7 year old neutered chocolate male who weighs 66 pounds. He's good with ages 10 and up, good with dogs, and unknown with cats. He is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. Hershey has a bit of arthritis in his back end and is on some medications for treatment.  He is a really nice boy who is relaxed and sweet and loves a good tennis ball. Hershey is a good car rider but does not understand the leash yet, so this boy will need an EZ walk harness to help with that.



Jack (#160059)

Jack is a handsome 4 year old neutered black male with a beautiful blocky head. He weighs 82 pounds and he needs to drop a few to be at his healthiest.  He is not afraid of children, but he is not a fan of youthful shenanigans, so he must go to home with folks 18 and up.  He is also nervous around men and should probably go to a home with women only. Jack is good with dogs and cats, though. In fact, for a time he lived with a cat and they took walks together.  If you guessed from looking at this handsome guy that he likes to retrieve, then you would be correct. He enjoys a good game of fetch or just the opportunity to walk around with a shoe in his mouth if need be. (No, he does not chew things! This is a good boy!) Jack needs to go to experienced adopters in a single-family home in the country or suburbs. 

Update from Jack's foster mom - Apr 19, 2016:

Jack is such a sweet and handsome guy! He stays close and is eager to receive and give affection--tail wagging, flopping down for belly rubs, sweet kisses on your arm to say hi. He sleeps soundly through the night on his dog bed, snoring away as he dreams. He happily goes into his crate during the work day, content with a few treats and a toy (although I think he would be fine having the run of the house--he hasn't chewed on or disturbed anything). He has enjoyed having my 4 year old black lab as a companion. They have playful spurts but then settle down and hang out next to each other. He tends to follow my dog's lead, which has seemed to build some confidence. He is a wonderful walker. He doesn't pull, just trots happily and sniffs to explore. He is very food motivated so it would be easy to train him even more so than he already is--for example, I have my dog sit when a bike goes by and give him a treat. Jack has caught on and sits and looks for a treat as well! I feel like stable love and additional confidence boosting are all he needs to get over his nervousness. 
 



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 



Larz (#160160)

 Check out Larz with his wiggle-butt in his walk video

Larz is a 7 year old yellow neutered male.  He came in at 103 pounds and has lost 13, weighing in at 90 pounds most recently! He is getting there with low calorie food and slow exercise.  He is approved for kids 8 and up and is good with both dogs and cats.  He is heartworm positive and Lab Rescue will pay for his treatment if performed at one of our vets.  Larz is a very friendly and sweet boy who enjoyed getting up close with his people during his photo session.  He enjoyed joining the playgroup with the other dogs in the shelter and did fine with a variety of different dogs.  He rides well in the car. Larz is from the country with limited exposure to cities, so placements are limited to single family stand alone suburban and rural homes.

Update from Larz's foster family - May 17, 2016:

Larz is an absolute joy to foster! No muss, no fuss . . . laid back and ready for fun whenever you are. He's becoming more active and getting around much better since losing 13 pounds. His gait has improved and he leaps and twirls more often now, so he seems to be responding well to his supplements. Last night he crawled onto the couch with me for the first time since I began to foster him 6 weeks ago! He promptly did the Labby spin and rested his head on my lap. He's never had problems navigating the hardwood stairs or floors in my home, but furniture and beds were a little too high for him. I guess that's all in the past! He will also step up onto your lab for scratches and hugs, whereas before he could not. He loves riding in the car ~ he can crawl up into the rear seating area, but needs a boost for entry into the rear cargo area. He just smiles, and sniffs out side windows and sniffs up at the open sunroof. Otherwise he just lays down across the entire back seat to enjoy the ride. He's so big I have to use the back seat for Larz only and use the rear cargo area of my SUV for my two pups .. hence, his nickname, LARGE LARZ!!! He's a true cuddlebug of a gentle giant! He has excellent house manners and walks well on leash ~ but beware, he's always on critter patrol during our walks! He will pull if he sees a bunny or a squirrel! Note, he is a true country boy ~ so no cities or areas with lots of street traffic. A quiet cul-de-sac in suburbia or a rural forever home would be ideal. 



Lassy (#160165)

Lassy is 2 year old black spayed female.  She weighs 48 pounds and is heartworm negative.  She is approved for kids 10 and up and must go to a home with another dog.  Lassy is a sweet, shy girl who likes to be with her people and enjoys being petted.  She would like a quiet home without a lot of hustle and bustle, as many things are new to her and a bit intimidating.  Lassy has come out of her shell a bit while in the company of other dogs, so she would do best in a home with a canine buddy to show her the ropes and a patient family to show her love.  She knows the commands Sit and Come and is working on Down.  She walks ok on leash, but is better with an Easy Walk harness and she is house and crate trained.  Lassy needs a suburban or rural single family stand alone home.

Update from Lassy's foster - Apr 16, 2016:

Lassy is such a sweet, little girl. She has made a lot of progress since arriving at her foster home. She is very affectionate and will give kisses to her foster and the resident dogs. She takes treats gently and is doing very well with waiting her turn when treats are given to all of the dogs. She does not counter surf. She has learned the daily routine at her foster home and does well without being crated while her foster works (she gets a lunchtime outing each workday). Loud household noises (vacuuming, hairdryer) aren't her favorite. She gets very excited to go for walks. She quickly runs to the door when her leash and collar are taken, and she sits pretty while they are put on her. Even though she loves going on walks in familiar areas, she is very cautious and always on the lookout. She needs a family who will understand that she needs time to frequently stop and check her surroundings so that she is comfortable continuing to walk. Her playful puppy personality is such a joy to see. She “helped” her foster sweep the deck by chasing the broom. 




Lazarus (#160083)

Lazarus is an 8 year old black neutered male.  He weighs 88 pounds and is good with other dogs.  He is approved for kids 10 and up and is heartworm negative.  Lazarus is a very handsome and friendly boy.  He loves to give his paw and will roll over for belly rubs.  Lazarus is house and crate trained, but doesn't need to be crated.  He loves hanging out on his dog bed and exploring outside.  Lazarus knows the commands sit, stay and lay down and he has a great lab lean.  Lazarus is a recent tripod who and is doing very well with his new-found balance and with getting around.  He would do best in a home with limited steps.  He had this front right leg amputated due to a cancerous tumor, but it is not believed to be an aggressive cancer, and he has a good prognosis. 

Updates from Lazarus's foster family - Apr 8,2016:

Lazarus is an easy going, Happy guy. Check out his new picture of him sitting pretty!

Mar 21, 2016:  Lazarus continues to improve. Just 3 weeks after his surgery, he is now retrieving a ball. He isn't letting 3 legs slow him down.

 Watch Lazarus get around!

Mar 18, 2016: Lazarus is a great dog. He is looking for a home where someone is home during the day or where he will have another dog for company. 

 See Lazarus in his latest video.




Lightning (#160312)

Lightning is a 4 year old neutered yellow male who weighs 88 pounds and loves to jump and play. He is current on vaccines and heartwom negative. Lightning is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for kids 10 and up. This cute guy is well trained, with good house manners, and a love of his toys.

Lily #3 (#150506) 

Lily is a 5 year old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 85 pounds and is heartworm negative.  She is approved for kids 10 and up and is good with both Cats and Dogs.  Lily is a sweet and pretty girl who loves being petted and getting attention from humans.  She is very smart and loyal to her people.  Lily has excellent house manners and loves being petted and getting belly rubs.  Lily is looking for a home with a physically fenced yard in a quiet neighborhood without too much activity around.  She sometimes barks at other dogs while on leash, but she has improved greatly.




Loki (#150478) 

Loki is a 1 year old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 41 pounds and is good with other dogs.  He is approved for kids 12 and up and is heartworm negative.  Loki is a good puppy, who likes typical puppy things; eating sticks, chasing balls, chewing and playing tug.  He likes being brushed and playing outside.  Loki is a great walker and does well at dog daycare.  He is looking for a family who is firm with him, or else he will test his boundaries.  Loki will need continued obedience training, exercise and active play with other dogs.  He is looking for a home with another young energetic dog to keep him company and to burn off energy with. However, if Loki goes to a home where a human is home most of the time then he will not necessarily need a companion dog. This little guy just likes company and does not like alone time.

Update from Loki's foster family - Apr 6, 2016:

Loki is doing great in his foster home. His foster mom absolutely loves him, and thinks he's such a character. He has the perfect amount of energy - outside he loves to run around and play, and once in the house, he's ready to settle. Loki enjoys playing with other dogs (without toys) but he also really seems to love the companionship of his human, so he can go to a home as a solo dog IF the human(s) is(are) home most of the day, as Loki doesn't enjoy being totally alone. 

Here are a couple of videos of him showing off his tricks and his great leash manners! 
 Check out videos of Loki here and here and here showing off his tricks and great leash manners!

 Apr 5, 2016:

Loki gets along great with other dogs (but is very territorial over toys with other dogs, so there should be no toys around). He is GREAT on a walk and hangs out beside you. He is also doing well in his crate during the day and sleeps outside of it at night and does well. He likes to play with other dogs and will relax and cuddle. He has the perfect energy. He is a really sweet dog. 

Apr 3, 2016: 10 reasons you should adopt Loki: 
1. Look at that face! 
2. He knows many commands 
3. He is great with other dogs 
4. He has the perfect amount of energy

8. He is crate trained 
9. He is house trained 
10. Who wouldn't want to be greeted by his cuteness every day!

London (#150178)

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 would prefer to have a confident and calm companion dog to show her the ropes, but that is negotiable for her.  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.

Update from London's foster family - Apr 20, 2016:

London has been doing great. Yesterday she was sunning herself on the deck stayed out there most of the day. She and the resident dog have been chasing each other around the yard and playing in the house. She lays on the floor in the evening and chews on nylabones. She has been coming up to me and letting me pet her even when outside, that's a first for me. Her tail is up wagging when she sees us in the house and hasn't been running away from us.

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. He must go to a home with a solid, not invisible, fenced yard and cannot live in an apartment, townhouse or condo. Luke is looking for a quiet, low-key forever home without a lot of comings and goings. 

Update from Luke's foster family - Mar 5, 2016:

What a fun boy Luke has been. He has been super happy since the weather has warmed up. He shows how happy he is by rolling on his back and kicking all four paws in the air at the same time. Very funny to watch. He loves it if you come over and scratch his belly while he's in the middle of his inverted dance. He would love to go to someone who likes the outdoors and sniffing pee as much as he does. Ok he can make an exception to the sniffing pee part but they should love outdoors at least.

He is a good boy who likes to be around people and needs someone who is frequently at home. He rides well in the car, has good house manners, and a love of belly rubs. Mansion tried living in an apartment and did not like it, so no apartment living for him. 

Update from Mansion's foster family - Mar 26, 2016:

Mansion is a big goof ball who loves everyone. He loves belly rubs, treats and being close by your side. He has a giant block head and sad eyes and will climb in your lap if you let him. He does not like a crate but has had good house manners while left alone. At 2 years old he is a low-energy companion who would love someone who is home a lot or is able to take him to work where he will sit quietly by your side. He also needs to go home with another dog to keep him company when his human is not within reach. He is a wonderful sweet soul who can't wait to he loved on by his new humans.

Midnitght has adorable white toes on her back feet and the most velvety ears! She is a true beauty. Midnight is current on vaccines but is heartworm positive. Lab Rescue will take care of the cost of her treatment as long as it is done at one of our vets, so Midnite knows she will get the care she needs. She must go to a detached single family home in the suburbs or a rural area.

Update from Midnite's foster family - May 5, 2016:

Moments by Midnite: 
My foster mom said I needed to make an appearance since we've been so busy with Suzie. I've been really good with everything going on. I come over and check on Foster Mom to see if she is OK and I'm respectful to Suzie while she is healing. I love playing with Reese, Jackson and Neo in the back yard. Jackson can sometimes be a little much so I'm happy to come inside. Now a little about me...I'm around 4 years old and weigh around 50 pounds. I have the cutest white paws and soft long ears. I'm a little timid but time is helping me with that. I'm house trained and crate trained. I definitely have an alarm bark that stands out in the Neighborhood Barking Watch. If I sound like I might be a match for you, call your AC to come meet me in Lynchburg. Please don't be upset if I don't get you with open arms. I'm still getting used to people. 
Love, 
Midnite

Update from Mikey's foster family - Apr 8, 2016:

Mikey has arrived at his foster home and he is having SO much fun playing with the resident young lab. He is very gentle with taking treats. He does respond to no if he is going for something he shouldn't. He slept in the crate all night and was a quiet boy with his busy bone. He is house trained and will go to the door when he needs to go outside. He is a sweet boy loves people and loves to play play play.

Update from Molly's foster family - May 6, 2016: Molly has a new toy that she just loves to play with, a plush yellow duck with a squeeker! (See gallery) She is great about playing with her toy and leaving other plush items, like slippers, alone. Molly has been wonderful in the car, she calmly lays on the back seat.

Petey is an 11 year old black neutered male.  He weighs 66 pounds and is good with other dogs.  He is approved for kids 10 and up and is heartworm negative.  Petey is an extremely friendly and lovable guy.  He is very adaptable and gets long well with all types of people and dogs and loves meeting new people, especially if there is a chance that a treat or pets are involved.  Within a few minutes of being petted, he will lay down on his side to make sure you have the opportunity to rub his belly.  Petey is a fan of long naps during the way, especially in the sun!  He does ok with stairs, provided they are not too steep or there are a lot of them at once.  Petey knows the commands sit, stay, come, down and responds immediately to a whistle.  He is a very lovable guy and it's impossible not to adore him, especially when his ears perk up and his tail is wagging.  Petey has a clean bill of health, but his eyes are a bit cloudy, which could be due to cataracts so his vision isn't great, but he doesn't have any trouble getting around.  He is missing a few teeth and some others are worn down, likely from chewing rocks as a stray, but they don't cause him any problems.  Overall he's a sweet, mellow guy looking for someone to love.

Update from Petey's foster mom - Mar 25, 2016:

Petey has been doing much better on the desmopressin (medication for diabetes insipidus). He has been able to keep his wrap dry during my school/work day. I no longer crate him and just gate him in a bedroom. Most days I come home to find him sound asleep. When we are home together, I take him out pretty frequently. There have been some accidents but that is just part of loving Petey. 

Petey needs a family that will understand that he is doing the best he can. He stumbles, trips and sometimes slips. Getting up isn't always easy and navigating more than two steps is a challenge. He is always close by, when he isn't sleeping in his room, and tries to guess where I am walking. Petey LOVES food and treats. His nose always knows when something yummy is out (which is anything edible or anything he perceives to be edible). 

Petey likes to walk around the yard but mostly with me. He gets a special walk after meals which really just a bunch of circles while his nose takes in all the news of the neighborhood. 

Petey is an absolute love. He needs one last home to be his forever home. He needs someone that will sign on for the long haul - the good, the bad and the messy. Petey has love to give and deserves to be loved for who he is after all these years.

Update from Quincy's Foster- May 20, 2016:

Adoptable Quincy loves watching movies and playing with squeaky toys! He loves to chase birdies in the yard, and loves every person he meets. He is always up for a new adventure! 

May 17, 2016: Quincy is a big brown lover boy who can't wait to run around the yard and take naps with his new family. He loves dog beds (his fosters have them strategically laid out so he can make use of whichever he'd like, tough life!). Need someone by your side? Quincy is your boy (and his head is right at hand-height, so you can conveniently pet him while walking. How thoughtful of him!)

Update from Shooter's foster family - Apr 6, 2016:

This 7 year old chunk of chocolate love is a sweet and easy boy. Shooter would love to be an only dog.

There was no information given as to how he was injured, but X-rays showed it was not recent. 

Update from Survivor's foster - 

Apr 25, 2016: We couldn't wish for a better "houseguest" than Survivor. Beyond being such a handsome boy, he is also extremely gentle and loving. Everyone / everything is his friend. He even enjoys snuggling up to a teacup poodle - just one of his many new canine friends. This week has brought a milestone to his time here. He found his courage to climb the entire staircase up to the bedroom level. He found this so enjoyable that he was going up and down just for the fun of it. Now it's just routine - no prompting needing. He continues to enjoy his walks with the resident dog. One of his favorite things is to fall over and roll in fresh cut grass - heaven! He is doing extremely well with his FHO rehabilitation. We continue to do stretching exercises twice a day.
