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.

Ace #2 (#140501)  

 Ace is a 8 month old neutered black male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. Ace is good with dogs and approved for adult only households (18+) because children make him nervous. He weighs 40 lbs. Ace is an energetic young pup who would love an active family that can give him the exercise he needs. Ace likes other dogs but likes to do introductions slowly. He loves chewing on Nylabones! Ace is looking for a special family that can provide him with firm and consistent training in a loving way, so he is approved for experienced handlers only. 

Update from Ace's foster family - 10/9/2014

Ace is a wonderful companion and a great dog to have around the house. He is 100% lab in attitude and looks, he tilts his head to the side, follows you everywhere, and regularly brings you items to throw for him. He loves car rides, walks, fetch, and nylabones. He waits to eat his food, staring at you until you give a release command. He stalks the bunny that lives in the backyard and loves to chase the birds flying to the bird feeder. He lays on the floor and waits patiently while his toe nails are trimmed and he is becoming a HUGE fan of water. He lets you sleep in every morning, never making a sound in his kennel.  Ace knows the commands Sit, Down, Kennel, Come here, Out, Go to the bathroom, and Give. He LOVES to play fetch and is training daily with his retrieving. He also loves leash walks and has very good manners while out and about on walks. This little guy has been ringing bells by the door to go outside since the day he arrived and I honestly don't know if could live without them at this point. He is rock solid house/kennel trained. Ace has 4 playmates here at his foster home and loves them all though introductions are tough for him, because he doesn't have a lot of confidence.  He needs a special home with an experienced handler but will make a wonderful addition to the right family.


       

   

Apple (#140843)


Apple is a 6 month old black spayed female. She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative. Apple is good with other dogs and is approved for children aged 10 and up. She weighs 56 lbs. Apple is a bouncy girl with tons of puppy energy. She loves squeaky toys the most! Apple loves attention, getting pets, and spending time with her people. She is looking for a loving family committed to her exercise, giving her lots of love, and some training too!

Update from Apples foster family 11/17/2014:

Apple has fallen into the routine of the house nicely. She sleeps through the night in the spare bedroom through the night, is housetrained and even goes to the door when she needs to go outside. She enjoys playing out in the yard with the pack in the morning before breakfast (the jolly ball has become one of her favorite yard toys), and before I leave for work. She gets playtime at lunch, and about an hour again once I get home until it gets dark. She's high energy, but it's definitely manageable because she LOVES to play! She's just looking for someone who wants to play with her and she craves attention. She doesn't need to be on top of me, but she definitely wants to be nearby. She's a great snuggler. When I sit on the couch, she'd really like to be in my lap, giving kisses but will accept that after a few kisses, she should adjourn to the floor. She likes to roughhouse with the pups but is also perfectly happy to just play fetch with me and ignore them. She knows 'sit' and 'drop it' and will drop the ball for you to throw again, usually. I ask her to sit every time before I throw it, and she does a great job! She likes squeaky toys too!  With some training and a lot of love, she's going to be a wonderful addition to a lucky family! 

 

    


   

Big Ben (#140792)

Big Ben is a 2 year old neutered chocolate male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with dogs and is approved for children aged 10 and up. He weighs 68 lbs. Big Ben is a lover. Ben is capable of jumping a short fence, so he needs a forever family with a nice, tall 6 ft fence. 

Update from Ben's foster family - 11/2/2014

Ben continues to be as handsome and smart as ever! He has learned the shake command and does it flawlessly know. Ben would prefer to live in a more suburban/rural area and not a city. Ben has claimed his spot on the couch - he sleeps in this spot at nighttime too. He likes to keep an eye on things! See Ben demonstrate his skills here: At YouTube

Beautiful Big Ben is a perfect labbie in the house - docile and doesn't need to be crated when left alone. He loves other dogs and running around the yard. Outside he will show his strong athletic side and needs either a yard with a sturdy 6-ft fence or two good walks a day - or both! He loves to be scratched and falls asleep however he is during a scratch session. Ben is a big, silly puppy who thinks he's more like 20 pounds... He snuggles and snores quietly when he sleeps. Ben loves his food and toys - he likes a good chew, so strong tough toys are better. Ben enjoys retrieving too. Ben is adept at opening the crate door and getting treats out of hiding places. Speaking of treats - he has a gentle mouth and takes treats politely. Ben seems to be more of a country guy too - he needs to learn things like car riding and that people on bikes are normal. He needs to learn walking on a leash - basic training will be perfect for him. Ben is very interested in wild life - he pulls a good amount to go after squirrels, deer and so on. Big Ben is strong. Whether he is on a leash or in a yard, safe and secure is a must. Proper fitting harness and/or tall fence are needed.

Biscuit does well in the crate too! She is on the lookout for a loving forever family who will give her lots of love.

Bobby does well on the lead with the help of the Easy Walk Harness and does well in the crate too. Bobby is looking for a forever family that will spoil him rotten!

Update from Bobby's foster family 11/18/2014

Bobby went for a hike, and he is such an easy little boy! A real joy to walk. He is quite chill for his age. He rode very well in the car, needed a bit of coaxing to get in, settled down immediately, no jumping or bouncing around at all. He is pretty easy on the leash, doesn’t pull much, easily directed back to your side. LOVES meeting people, perks up when he sees someone but doesn’t rush them or jump up. He's very quiet, doesn’t bark. Definitely crate trained. And good with other dogs. He seems to be able to entertain himself quietly. A few zoomies, or a nice walk, and he’s ready to settle down.

Update from Buddy's foster family 11/17/2014

Buddy is such a sweetie. It's so nice to have a foster that plays.  I crate him when I leave but had him in my room overnight and he did great. Loves noisy toys and tennis balls. He'll chase them and return but isn't  wild about giving them up. He is the perfect size. He wants to please, knows sit, shake and down.  He also loves the doggy park especially the the slide, stairs, and sway bridge.  What a fun guy!

Colt (#140311)

  Watch Colt on YouTube

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

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

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

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

Watch Deacon on

Update from Deacon's foster family 11/22/2014

Deacon is a big playful guy who also knows how to take a good nap! This beautiful lab enjoys being around people, both those he lives with and any strangers in his sight. He loves to go out and does well on an Easy Harness. He is learning to chase a frisbee but is equally happy finding a big log and sitting down for a chew. He has adjusted well to the schedule in his foster home and is fine heading out whenever ready. He appreciates someone being at home with him but is quite flexible about who that may be. He likes to ride in the car.  Deacon knows some basic commands. With an easy walk harness, he does well on a walk. He would bark at people and dogs occasionally but when they came over, it was clear he just wanted to greet them. He was sweet and friendly with a tiny and hesitant dog we met. He is a beautiful dog who likes attention and play. He likes to play with his toys and likes the feel of something in his mouth. He is still learning what is ok to pick up and what's not. Socks left on the floor will possibly get a ride. Deacon will be a great part of a family who will commit to his continued training. He adjusted really quickly to his foster home and will transition well into a forever family! 


   

Ethel (#140714)

 Ethel is a 7 year old spayed yellow female. She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  Ethel is good with other dogs and approved for children aged 10 and up.

Ethel is a very sweet dog and will be a super companion to her forever family. Ethel will need to be routinely examined for enlarged lymph nodes as she had to have a growth removed from one of her mammary glands. She is feeling great, and loves all the attention and love she is getting. She is looking for a family that will promise to give her attention and love forever!

Update from Ethel's foster family - 11/11/2014

Ethel prefers to be called Ellie as that's what she answers to.  She is a sweet soul who loves to be rubbed and petted. Very well- mannered and doesn't get on the furniture {has the recessive no furniture lab gene}. She gets along very well with our 3 year old black lab who she hangs with during the day. Loves to ride in the car, especially if we are going to the dog park, where she is been friendly with everyone she meets. Ellie is completely house and crate trained and sleeps in her crate at night by preference. She may be 7 years old but, she has plenty of energy for walks and play. Her skin conditions is greatly improved you would not recognize her as the same dog we took in. With her good manners and friendly personality she would be an easy fit into most any family.

Gertie (#140686)

Gertie is a pretty young mom who took wonderful care of her puppies and now that they're gone it's her turn to be babied and cared for. She's a 2 year 9 month old yellow female who knows a few commands already. Sweet Gertie is a country girl who probably would not do well in an apartment or condo. She gets along with other dogs, is unknown with cats and would do best with older children, aged 16 and up. Gertie is heartworm positive, but her treatment will be covered by Lab Rescue if it is provided by one of our vets. Now that her puppy rearing days are over, she will be spayed. Gertie is learning to walk on a leash and is house trained, but this beautiful yellow girl will benefit from formal training.

Harley #2 (#140327)  

Watch Harley Play

 
Harley is a 2 year old black neutered male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  He weighs 61 lbs, is good with other dogs and approved for ages 18 and up.  Harley would prefer not to be in an apartment or condo as he is not a city dog and would love to have a large yard to run around and play in. Harley only has 1/3 of a tail as a result of untreated happy tail, however, the rest of him is happy enough to make up for that missing part.

Update from Harley's foster family - 11/22/2014

Harley has enjoyed his foster home and accommodates our crazy schedule. Now that’s he’s used to our home environment, he settles nicely in the house after some moderate exercise. He enjoys playing with all kinds of toys, peanut butter stuffed kongs are also a favorite of his. He is thoroughly crate trained and happily goes in his crate when he gets a treat to bring inside. He loves to sleep in his foster mom’s bed every once in a while and has discovered the sofa is the perfect place for his naps. After a trek outside followed by breakfast, he loves to cuddle with foster mom while she has her coffee. Harley thoroughly enjoys sitting on, if not as close as he can get, to his humans. For a young dog, he has a great temperament in the house, he has short periods where he wants to play and will let you know by dropping a ball in your lap. Once satisfied with some attention, he settles in for a nap or chew time with one of his knucklebones or rawhide. He loves, loves, loves to retrieve his favorite ball and is learning to catch balls in mid-air.  He will retrieve balls relentlessly. He’s very fun and keeps us laughing.  Even in the cold weather he jumps in our small pond afterwards, so he’d definitely love to live near some water! Harley does well on walks with a gentle leader and adjusted to it almost right away. He wants to greet other dog walkers in the neighborhood and after a greeting will sit patiently while I chat before we continue our walk. He can easily handle my 3 mile walk when I’m up to it, so he would make a great exercise buddy.  We are near some farms, so Harley had a chance to see lambs, cows, and horses - he barked at all of them and wanted to chase them, so I don’t think living on a farm with animals is in his future. He automatically sits for his food without being asked and responds well to other basic commands like down, come, stay, and shake - but will need consistent reinforcement. Harley will make a great companion dog as he continues to grow out of his puppy-hood.
  
      


   

Hazel (#140885)

Hazel is a two-year-old spayed chocolate female who is approved for ages 7 and up. She is heartworm negative, good with dogs, but unknown with cats.

Hurley #2 (140633)

Hurley is a handsome four year old lap dog who weighs 71 pounds. This young boy is neutered, heartworm negative and up to date on vaccines. He's also house trained, crate trained, and responds to numerous commands, including "give kisses!" He is strong and probably would walk best with an easy walk harness. Hurley loves riding in the car and having play dates with other dogs. He is unknown with cats, and because he has never lived with children, Hurley is approved for children ages 10 and above. This sweet boy has had occasional seizures in the past two years, but they have been far enough apart that he doesn't require medicine.

Update from Hurley's foster family - 11/11/2014

Hurley has fit in nicely to our routine. He is fairly low maintenance and wants nothing more than a couple of walks, some food, and to get a stick thrown every now and then. There is nothing better to him than getting to play fetch with one of his humans. He likes going in the car and rides patiently until you stop. Hurley walks great on a leash, he does get excited when he sees other dogs especially if they are excited as well, he would benefit from an easy walk harness to help when this happens. Like most labs, he is full of enthusiasm when you come home. He greets you like you've been gone for months and shows his affection with a full body wag and running back and forth between your legs while you pet him, it's a Hurley thing. We have gone to the park several times and he has done really well, he went swimming and met a couple of other other dogs with no problem. He interacts well with calm dogs but responds excitedly toward very excited dogs. Hurley is a super sweet boy, he would do best in a home where he would get plenty of exercise with a yard to play. He has played well with my neighbor's dog several times and seems to love the company; the neighbor's cat on the other hand, not so much.

Jake #5 (#140728)

Jake is a playful one year old neutered black male who weighs 56 pounds and is heartworm negative.

He's current on vaccines, good with other dogs and unknown with cats. Jake is approved for ages 10 and up. He pulls some on the lead but does okay on an easy walk harness.  Because he is young and exuberant, Jake will benefit from training.

Watch Jake retrieve.

Update from Jake's foster family 11/18/2014

Jake gets along great with the resident dog. He is curious for sure but hasn't gotten into anything. He is house trained and has gone outside to play a lot. Trying to teach him to ring the bell to go out. He knows sit and takes treats gently. He hasn't been getting up on the furniture, yay! He is playing with toys and chewing bones and loves resident dog. He is a sweetheart!

Update from London's foster family 11/5/2014

London is a sweetie who has good house manners. He gets free roam of the home even when we aren't there and not a thing has been out of place. He watches as dinner is prepared but does not beg or hover waiting for a crumb to drop. London has a couple favorite toys, an orange rubber ball and an orange kong.

Update from their foster family - 10/24/2014

Onyx and Niko are well mannered and easy going dogs. They love to chase each other around the yard. Niko likes to pick up sticks and Onyx will steal it away, and back and forth they go in a game of keep-away. In the evening both like to cuddle up next their foster's chair, or if ambitious one or the other will climb on the foot rest in front of the chair for some one-on-one time. They are perfectly mannered in the house. Both are very healthy, slimming down a bit, and doing well. Shocker, they both love catching popcorn. And Niko loves to play with tennis balls. They are very much cuddle bugs and have spots in the bed with their name on them. They have adapted to the household routine and having a great time playing about. They love all the people they meet and belly rubs and scratches. Niko loves stuffed animals and chasing balls. Onyx likes to chew on bones. They enjoy chasing each other around the yard. They would do best in a home without other dogs. They are strong on the lead so they would benefit from some training and harnesses.  Both are house trained and were crate trained as pups, but haven't needed one in years.  They  know sit, paw, stay, down and roll over and love car rides. They would like to find a home in a nice, quiet neighborhood with few dogs and little traffic around; and a family to walk and play with them.

Update from Otto's foster 8/17/2014
Otto is an easy-going boy who loves hanging out with his people and getting loved on.  He is affectionate but not one of the always in your face for attention dogs. He loves a good ear rub. Otto is house trained, has run of the house while we are gone. He greats his people with wagging tail. He is enjoying spending time outside when it's cooler and enjoys his leisurely walks. Otto is good with the resident cat and is great with our 4 male dogs.  He's gained a little weight, is definitely getting stronger, and his playful personality has emerged. Otto is patiently waiting for his forever home now!

Update from Rocky's foster family 9/1/2014

Rocky is the most loving affectionate dog his foster has EVER met. He's doing great, and already learning. He slept beautifully in the crate last night without a peep. He's tentative in the house, especially with the wood floors. His fosters put some runners down to encourage him a bit. He's learning of all the new things inside a house. Once inside the room it's like he tells himself "ok, it's safe in here". He walked great on the easy walk harness, however obviously has never been walked before. Towards the end of the walk he was walking more forward and less vertical. He has little to no interest in the resident female labs. He goes from person to person looking for pets and love, and would prefer to be in your lap.

She would love to be the apple of her family's eye as an only dog and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. She weighs 60 lbs and is in great shape. Sally is very well trained and knows many commands including sit and shake. Don't let that grey muzzle fool you; this is no senior dog.  She is active girl who loves to retrieve and then settle in for a good night of cuddles and kisses.

Update from Sally's foster family 11/7/2014

She's been patiently waiting for her forever family but Sally would love to be home for the holidays.  She is loving her time with the  foster fam and has thrived but she says alright already!  Sally is even thinking about dying her muzzle.....perhaps she can't get that interview because of the shades of grey???   She is a joyful, tail-wagging dog!   Sally is a smart, spunky, and spirited girl. She enjoys lengthy walks and some playtime everyday. During the day, when her fosters have errands to run or household chores to do, Sally will lounge. She is a perfect companion. The progress she has made since she came to Lab Rescue is amazing and she continues to show improvement everyday. She was fearful when she arrived but is now extremely comfortable in her foster home. She thrives on routine and is a creature of habit. Her house manners are wonderful, she knows many commands and tricks, is always ready for an adventure and keeps her fosters laughing. She thoroughly enjoys sniffing games and likes being challenged mentally. Sally attends training classes and she loves to go.   As if all this is not enough, Sally is a rock star...just look at all the video's she has out!  

She is fearful of other dogs and Sally needs to be an only dog and live in a quiet household in a home with a fenced yard. Sally loves being with her humans and will make a fantastic and loyal companion.

Seren(#140830) & Shiloh (#140831) 


Watch them play!   

Serena and Shiloh are a unique bonded pair! Serena is a 2 year old spayed black female who is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative. Her buddy Shiloh is a 4 year old neutered tricolor male beagle, who is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  Serena weighs 52 lbs and Shiloh weighs 40 lbs.  They are good with other dogs and are approved for kids aged 7 and up.  These two have lived together since Serena was a pup and she is dependent on him.  When you toss a toy, Serena will normally get to it first and tease Shiloh until he joins in the play.  They both like attention and being petted, and Shiloh will happily let you know if he thinks he's not getting enough attention.  They know sit and down and are pretty good at stay. This odd couple are from the country and have had limited exposure to city noises, traffic and groups of people, so they should be adopted in an environment they'll feel comfortable in.

Update from their foster family - 11/18/2014

Serena and Shiloh are a lot of fun. They do fairly well on the leashes. They ride great in the car. Both of them like to sit and look out the windows on the drive. Yesterday, they got to play with some toys that they could play tug-of-war with. Of course, they quickly figured out where the toy stash was. Today, Serena disappears upstairs and comes down with a "new" toy. Up she goes again and down with a new toy. She was so funny she kept going back to get more and the total count was 4. They are so good about sleeping on their dog bed. Every once in a while one of them wants to sleep on their foster's bed, but listens to their fosters to sleep in their own bed. They are working on their "down" command. They are great at sit, but need to work on down. As long as they know treats are involved they are pretty attentive. 
 
Serena is partial to squeaky toys of any kind. Outside she loves to run around with a ball in her mouth. Shiloh likes to play tug of war with toys (one fatality so far), and of course he will chase Serena when she has the ball. Occasionally he gets it but Serena steals it back pretty quick. 

Shiloh is definitely the sweetest older "brother". Serena will actually take treats out of his mouth and he will let her. He never growls at her except in play. They are getting better on leashes, but mostly they like to run and play in the back yard. They will love going to a home where they can run and chase each other. Squirrels and birds won't be visiting the yard any time soon, both Serena and Shiloh chase them away. Serena is working on her kitchen manners. She does counter surf. They will go into the crate with a little encouragement. They have been getting Kongs with some peanut butter in the mornings before their foster leaves for work. These two are just so much fun.

Sheila (#140291)

Sheila is an 8 month old spayed yellow female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  She is good with other dogs and cats and is approved for kids aged 10 and up.  She weighs 39 lbs and is still growing. Sheila loves to play with other dogs, but is a bit shy in new situations. She's starting to come out to investigate on her own. She is house and crate trained, and walks well on lead.  Sheila knows sit and is working on down and stay. 
Update from Sheila's foster family 10/2/2014

Sheila is growing more confident every day.​ A​fter two months with ​her foster​, she's about 90% comfortable with her now very familiar surroundings. She likes to pretend she's top dog, and not the tiniest one in the house, and will play/wrestle with everyone except the oldest foster sibling - she respects her frosty faced elders. Sheila plays hard (and sometimes a little dirty!) rolling and tumbling and chasing the other dogs in the yard. She definitely enjoys playing fetch inside too - and is great about bringing the ball back to you over and over. Outside, she will still only return the ball to you on her terms - when she wants you to throw it again! Otherwise she is quite content to run around with the ball in her mouth, taunting the other pups with her "keep away" skills. ​​When her foster gets home from work, she barks (she has a big girl bark!) to remind her she is in the crate and it's time to come OUT, and as soon as we're outside, she'll stand next to her tennis ball and bark as if to remind me that it can't throw itself! ​ 

Sheila would prefer to stay home in a quiet, fenced yard, chasing tennis balls and wrestling with canine playmates. She also knows how to swim, and enjoys it. It took a few nudges to get her in the pool, but once in - she swam strong and fast! Sheila is starting to look really nice with all of the TLC she's gotten, and now this softie just wants to find her forever home! 

 

   

    


   

Suzie (#140853)

Suzie is a 9 year old spayed black female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heart worm positive - Lab Rescue will pay for her treatment.  She is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. She weighs 45 lbs and should gain 5-10 lbs.   Suzie has a bit of gray, but has a lot of spunk left in her and enjoys running and playing with other dogs.  She is super sweet and so gentle. She rides well in the car and loves and craves attention. Suzie is used to being a country girl and should be adopted to a single family suburban or rural home. 

Update from Suzie:  11/17/2014

I'm feeling great...running around and playing and every now and then I get the zoomies. Now my zoomies aren't like Reese's where she goes crazy in the backyard but I'll make a lap or two with her. I have full run of the house now and I sleep on one of the dog beds in my foster parents room. I'm still looking for my forever family. It kills foster Mom for me to say that because she says she loves me. While I'm not quite a couch potato, I love to snuggle and be close & sometimes that just happens to happen on the sofa. Belly rubs are at the top of my list too and that can happen anywhere! I've gotten used to the routine here now and I'm a really good girl. 
Love, 
Suzie
