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.

He liked riding in the car with the rescue volunteers too!

Update on Bentley from his fosters - Apr 1, 2015:

Bentley continues to be good in the car. He gets along with other dogs during his walks and in the dog park. Bentley likes people and enjoys all toys and treats. If he gets too excited, he can be mouthy, so you need to redirect him with a toy. He walks well on the easy walk harness but is hesitant to walk in the grass, only to do his business. He is doing well with house manners and he is crated when left alone. Bentley is a sweet guy looking for a loving companion who will take him on walks and tell him that he's loved.

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 (check the first 3 pictures against the last two). If anyone is looking for an easy going companion she is their dog.

Buck #2 (#150460)

 Watch Buck play!  

Buck is an 11 month old neutered black male who weighs 60 pounds, and is approved for ages 6 and up! His first birthday is July 13 and he would love to be in his forever home by then. This playful baby is looking for a single family home in a suburban or rural area where he can have some toys to carry around and get some help losing about 4 or 5 pounds. He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  And Buck is more than just good looks; he already knows sit, stay, ready, go get ball and bring back. He is crate trained AND house trained but because he is a youngster he will have a training addendum so he can continue his education.

Update from Buck's foster - Jun 29, 2015:

He's a sweetheart who loves playtime and attention. He is a bit of a goofy guy with a silly overbite and a wrinkled forehead, but make no mistake, he is all lab! He loves to lean, to give a flurry of sweet kisses, and he enjoys his kibbles and treats. He has had a blast on walks and outside in the yard playing fetch and running around with his foster brother. He walks very nicely with an easy walk harness (necessary right now because he's recovering from an embedded collar wound), and settles down well after walks and playtime. He doesn't seem to have a prey drive, but bounces up and down wanting to play when he sees people and other dogs out on walks. He is crate and house trained! He will let you know when he needs to do his business by standing by the back door. The commands he knows right now are: Sit, Stay, and "In your crate". One thing Mr. Buck is not too sure about right now are stairs, but we are working on getting more comfortable with those. (probably never been in a two story house)! 

Jun 24, 2015: Buck is a happy and friendly pup. He is a little unsure when he first meets you but after that he is fine. He likes retrieve and carry something in his mouth most of the time. He enjoys playing in the kiddie pool with the kids but hasn't been swimming yet. He is going to a foster tomorrow. 
Kids 6 and up, lived with owners granddaughter, other grandchildren at home frequently. Good with other dogs; had him out with several at the kennel.

Buddy #3 (#150138)


Buddy is a 10 year old neutered yellow male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. Buddy is good with other dogs and is approved for children aged 8 and up. He weighs 78 lbs. Buddy is a sweet gentleman who knows several commands, walks well on the leash with the help of a harness, and loves getting affection and love. Buddy is a calm guy looking looking for love and attention!

Update from Buddy's foster family Jun 9, 2015:

Buddy  continues to be a great house guest. I've noticed that when I leave the house, he'll bark for a few minutes and then he'll settle. When I peek through the window, he's always laying next to the resident Lab, so he might enjoy the company of another mellow dog. He's a champ at taking his meds and looks forward to the peanut butter-meds sandwiches that are served here twice a day. Buddy is great on the leash, and he loves to go for short walks, which is all he's allowed to do right now. He is housetrained and doesn't need to be crated. In fact, I have put the crate away. He also lets you know if someone is at the door and wags his tail when the visitors come in. This boy is so nice. He also enjoys waiting for the school bus. If anyone is looking for a perfect and easy yellow Lab, give me a call.

Cabella (#150455)

Cabella is a petite spayed black female who weighs 50 pounds and is only 18 months old. She must go to a home with another dog and is unknown with cats. She is approved for ages 10 and up. She is very calm for her age and specializes in lab leans. She is a quick study and appears to be house trained. Cabella is up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative.

From Cabella's foster - Jun 29, 2015:

 We had a few soggy walks yesterday but fortunately Cabella (who I call Monkey because she is doing everything Maestro does) likes to be toweled off. She is good in the house, waits to go outside to potty and just gives a quiet whine when she needs to go. She has quickly learned to sit for treats and wait for the leash. She always wants to be close to you but will go off and find a corner to herself, she settles very well. She seems to have a prey drive based on her interest in squirrels. We met a few people and dogs on the walk this morning and she greeted very quietly and nicely. She seemed equally good with men and women. Wagged her tail at the dogs, sniffed and moved on.

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 - Jun 19, 2015:

Here's a little note from Charlie #150086: 

“I’m fit as a fiddle and ready for love!” Okay guys, when I came to Lab Rescue I was boney, had a ton of bald spots, was bleached red, full of parasites, and heartworm positive; look at this stud muffin now! MAGIC!!! I’m beefed up and my coat is a gorgeous dark chocolate. I’ve gone through my heartworm treatment (not playing ball for two months just about did me in) but I'm feeling great now! 

I haven’t been around the cats for the last two months, but I was good with them before all the vet visits, so I imagine when we're together again, they’ll be happy to see me. 
Did I say I love to play ball? Most of the time I will drop the ball for you to throw again, but it would probably be best if you keep an extra one. Whoever adopts me will get a whole bag of balls to keep me happy- the best ones are the squeak-airs (hint, hint). 

Scratch my face and you will own me. Throughout all my procedures, my tail never stopped wagging- I am one happy boy who loves my peeps but who doesn’t mind being left alone either- as long as I have my tennis balls- the squeakier the better. 

I am approved for kids 7 and up. Oh, and I’m an exceptionally good looking 8 myself.

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 - Mar 31, 2015:

Colt has been the perfect visitor at his temporary foster home. He is a sweet boy and enjoys attention. Colt loves looking out the window. He watches the post man without a peep, but there is a pesky street sign that he warns us about daily. On a sunny day, Colt enjoys wandering the yard with his canine buddies, checking out the smells. On the cooler days, he's content to do his business and get back indoors! Colt has met the cat, and while initially fascinated by her, after a few hisses for getting too close, he's come around to realize ignoring her is the way to go. 

Update, 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.

An update on Cyclone - Apr 3, 2015:

Cyclone is a whirlwind of activity! He’s a sweet little thing, but would certainly benefit from some training. So we’re working on a few obedience commands (he’s EXCELLENT at sit), and trying to get him to walk more easily on a leash/harness. More to come soon.

He enjoys being outside exploring the play yard and meeting other dogs. He's starting to figure out toys and is looking for someone to give him training, exercise and love! He knows sit and come and is working on his leash manners.

Update from DJ's Foster Family -July 2, 2015:

DJ is feeling so much better, and it shows! DJ is rather mellow and rarely barks. I am told he is great in the car and he is doing much better on the leash. I am using an EZ walk harness and always walk with another dog. He is still nervous leaving the house, but once we get to the sidewalk he calms and then walks very nicely on a loose leash. He is a really sweet boy. If we were to change his name, Shadow or Velcro might be appropriate. He is always at my side ( when not in his crate). He sleeps well, and we usually wake him up in the mornings.

Update from Duke's foster family -  Jul 1, 2015:

Welcome back little Duke! Duke's full time foster is on vacation so we get to fill in again. He came in like he'd never left and has quickly settled back into our routine. 

What can I say about Duke. He's super easy to love. He's the quietest, calmest 2 year old I've ever met. He goes to his crate with a simple 'kennel up' and likes his meals served in his crate. He's most frequently found snuggling with or near the resident dogs but he likes to make sure that I'm not doing something super exciting without him so he stays close to me too. 

You can see that he's a petite fellow able to curl up on the back cushions of the sofa. I think it's so that he can see the TV! 

We love this boy here. Easy, peasey puppy love!

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.

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!

They were both breeder dogs and are excellent in the crate and they have great house manners for formerly outside dogs. Both take verbal correction well and are food motivated. Their pics do not do them justice they are stunning! They both love love love to play fetch. They think it is the greatest game in the world and will bring the ball right back to you. Cookie is happy go lucky and loves everyone, Hunter is more of a gentle giant. They are excellent on leash, especially Hunter. They are great in the car and both are NOT a fan of kiddie pools - lol.

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 - Jun 29, 2015:

Jerry would do best in a quiet house. For a young guy, he is pretty calm. Everyone once in a while he gets his silly play face on, but mostly he is very chill. I've had my mom's Schnauzer here the past few days, and Jerry has tried to play bow with him. It's adorable. It's easy to tell that Jerry just wants to please his human. If he starts to do something naughty, and I correct him with a, "Jerry." he stops immediately and comes over to me. He enjoys going for walks and gets excited when he sees his harness. Jerry has seen other dogs and people on our walks and has had nothing to say them. We've stopped to talk to my older male neighbor that walks with a cane and he had nothing to say about that either. I've heard him bark about 5 times when he senses some stranger danger outside the glass door. 

Jerry can certainly live with another dog, but doesn't need one. I think he is a "one owner" kind of dog, too. I'm the only one here and he has never been unpleasant with me. With me he is an absolute love bug. He sleeps up on my bed or on a dog bed. I've told people that have come over to let Jerry approach them...and he does. He gives out licks to the hand, but I always watch to see that his tail is wagging. He loses confidence sometimes and gets nervous. Jerry needs someone that is willing to watch for his signs of comfort. He has a lot of love to give, but he cannot be overwhelmed. He will need someone that is truly willing to give him space and time. That's not easy to do because he is so adorable! You just want to swoop in on him and love him up, but that's not what's best for him right away. 

So the basic necessities are....quiet house, few people, lots of patience. Jerry is a great dog, and if he can find these things he will be happy forever.

Mako is a 7 month old black neutered male.  He weighs 45 pounds and is good with other dogs.  He is approved for kids 8 and up and is heartworm negative.  Mako is a cuddly boy who is super food motivated.  He is not a barker, and is a bit intimidated from the noise in the kennel.  Mako is very gentle, but can be a little mouthy when taking treats- he's working on that.  He mostly just rolls over or lays down when you are around him and is quite calm for a puppy.  Like most young dogs, he could use some work on house training and leash walking.  Mako is from the country so placements are limited to single family suburban or rural homes.

Update on Mako -  Jul 2, 2015:

Mako is the sweetest puppy ever! He just wants to snuggle and give kisses. He is very calm for a young pup and just wants to please. We are working on his house training but he is very treat motivated and eager to make you happy so it is coming along and should not take long once he is out of the kennel. 

 
Jun 25, 2015: Mako...Everyone is in love with him at the vet! He is a cuddler. He crawled up under Dr. Jesper's arm and sat on his lap while he was writing in his chart. He is super food motivated and will be easy to train! He is not a barker and is actually a little scared in the kennel runs because of the noise but is super happy. He is super gentle..except with treats, but that will be easily fixed and we are working on that. He will jump up occasionally, but does it very gently. He mostly just rolls over or lays down when you talk to him. For a puppy he is quite calm. He likes the Kuranda bed in his run. He needs some work on house training and we are working on that also.  Just a very sweet little pup!

Update from Mandy's foster -June 29, 2015:

My FM said she waited two days before sending in an update because she knows the phone is going to be ringing off the hook. I love being Cami (the resident lab). I am completely house trained and I have the run of the house. I love to go for walks and FM says I am easy to walk. I know I can't be perfect, so FM says I have to practice taking treats gently. I am very loveable and like to cuddle with you. If you would like me to be part of your family call you adoption coordinator. 

Mandy is a good pup she likes to around people to get attention and play. She absolutely loves to get her butt scratched, if you start she will turn round and round with a big grin on her face. She is good with other dogs, she went to foster yesterday and is good with Mitzi and Nancy's pup. As you can see, from the last picture Mandy has made herself at home. She would love a home with a fenced yard and someone to play with her.

Mariner is an 8 year old black spayed female.  She weighs 65 pounds and is approved for kids 10 and up.  She is good with other dogs and heartworm positive.  Lab Rescue will pay for her treatment if done at one of our vets.  Mariner is a sweet and shy girl who is learning the joys of being an indoor dog.  She is very well behaved in the house and is not crated.  Mariner hasn't had any accidents and hasn't gotten into anything she isn't supposed to.  She walks well on leash, but does get startled easily, so walking with a harness is best.  Mariner enjoys the company of other calm dogs to hang out with and take the lead from.  Mariner needs a single family home in a quiet neighborhood and a calm living environment.  Her new home must have a fenced yard and no steep stairs.  She also prefers more carpet than tile.  

From Mariner's Foster Family - May 27, 2015:

Mariner is doing awesome! She is doing well post heartworm treatment (less than 2 weeks to go until she's off reatriction! She wags her tail all of the time now – she's a happy girl. She even wags her tail when you look in her direction. She continues to get even more comfortable in her foster home and willingly accepts affection. She gives a big bark if someone rings the doorbell. She goes up to bed with her fosters when it is time to go to bed and no longer has to psych herself up to walk on the tile or hardwood. Stairs are no big thing. She loves her stuffed bone! You can see that she is thinking about playing when the resident dogs get rowdy but luckily she isn’t quite there. She is still quite content to lay on the floor next to her foster. She is really ready a forever family!

Marley #5 (#150299) 

Tiny Marley is a 1 year old yellow spayed female.  She is a petite 36 pounds and is good with other dogs.  She is approved for kids 10 and up and is heartworm negative.  Marley is a friendly girl who loves human companionship.  She is extremely affectionate and is enthusiastic about treats and meals.  Marley does not need to be crated because she is trustworthy in the house. She enjoys sleeping in her foster parents' bed at night.  She enjoys chewing on a good antler and is getting the hang of fetching.  Initially, Marley was unsure about the outdoors and would hurry back inside, but now she is starting to have fun exploring the yard.  She has good house manners and doesn't beg at the table.  Marley walks well on leash and enjoys sniffing along her route.  She would do best in a home where her people are home more often than not, as she gets very attached to her people.

Update from Marley's foster - June 28, 2015:

Marley is a sweet girl. She looks like a mini lab (35 pounds) with thick eyeliner. She loves to follow scents. Outside her nose is always on the ground. As a one year old, she has a reasonable amount of energy that needs to be expelled daily. She needs long walks or runs daily. She loves to run, so a fenced backyard or access to a dog park would be ideal. 

She loves to play with other dogs that are her size or larger. She’s good with small dogs, but doesn’t engage in play with our Pomeranian. She is interested in cats—but if the cat stands their ground she eventually loses interest.  She is very smart, so she likes toys that have food in them, like Kongs. The harder to get the food out the better. She also loves to chew on antlers. When she gets bored she plays by herself with her stuffed toys. If her toys are in a basket she likes to pull them out one at a time.  Marley is food motivated and she knows sit and lay down. She currently sleeps in a crate at night, but would be happy to sleep in your bed with you, too. She does not like to be in her crate during the day, so she would do best in a home where someone is around most of the day. She does well in the car—she just needs a few minutes to settle in. She loves to smell out the window. She walks well on a leash, but does best with a martingale collar.

She is from the country, so placements are limited to single family suburban and rural homes.  The vet noticed that Mary's nose/snout looks a little pushed in, and believes it occurred before or during birth.  It doesn't seem to bother her, so there is no concern from the vet.

From Mary's foster - Jun 18, 2015:

Mary Mary is anything but contrary! She is such a good, sweet girl. She has met the three resident dogs (two FM and a M). She has bonded with my two year old lab, they are now BFF and play non-stop. She knows that my 8 year old does not want to play much and respects that. She crated last night without any issues. Her tail never stops wagging and seems genuinely happy just to be loved on and included in play time. We have done a couple of short walks but she is content at this point just to hang out in the back yard and play with my dogs.

Update from Molly's foster - Jun 29, 2015:

Molly is doing great. She is waming up to us. My husband says she got up on to the couch and curled up next to him. She is a calm sweet dog and acts older than 3. Molly is a perfect house guest. She is not crated when we are gone. She likes to go into the crate with the door open to rest throughout the day. 

Jun 20, 2015: Molly is doing very good this week and has started to open up. We took her on her first walk and she did pretty good. She got startled once by a truck going by. She stayed close to The resident lab and would walk behind her. By the end of the walk her tail was starting to go up. She is coming up to us without hesitation and wagging her tail. She came in the living room and laid down for the first time when we were watching tv. She seems like she wants to play with The resident lab sometimes but that's as far as it gets. It is so good to see her wag her tail when you come up to her and when she follows us around in the house and in the backyard. It's taken her 2 weeks, but she has finally started to come around.

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 May 8, 2015:

ISO WLF (wonderful loving family) to call my own. A few months ago Lab Rescue took me in with severe ear infections. Their only option was to remove my inner and outer ears. Since then, I have been healing and learning all about living indoors and being part of a family. I LOVE being part of a family and meeting new people. Being deaf doesn't slow me down a bit - I just keep an eye on my foster family and follow them around to make sure I'm not missing out on anything (mainly food). I figured out that if I sit nicely, they give me treats. I also love car rides and my toys. My foster mom says I have a big personality and calls me a little stinker. You steal all the shampoo, conditioner and body wash out of the shower and hide them one time and you're labeled a stinker. So unfair. Did I mention how cute I am?

Teddy (#150341)

Teddy is a 3 year old chocolate neutered male.  He weighs 52 pounds and is approved for kids 10 and up.  He is good with other dogs and heartworm negative.  Teddy is a timid boy in search of a patient family to give him the love and encouragement he needs to become a confident dog.  He had no issues being touched all over and having his teeth and ears checked.  Teddy is a country body and needs a single family suburban or rural home with a physically fenced yard.  He probably hasn't spent much time on leash.  He doesn't pull, but looks for encouragement to move forward.

Update from Teddy's foster family - June 17, 2015:

He is a sweet shy guy who is learning the joys of being an indoor dog. He loves the car, other dogs, and chew toys. He walks beautifully and is becoming more trusting and confident every day. 

Update from Teddy's foster family - June 15, 2015:

Teddy will do best in a home with another dog to show him the ropes.

Teko (#150396)

Teko is a 6 year old black neutered male.  He weighs 79 pounds and is good with other dogs, but doesn't much care for small dogs.  He is approved for kids 10 and up and is heartworm positive.  Lab Rescue will pay for his treatment if done at one of our vets.  Teko is a sweet and calm boy who is very affectionate and loves to give kisses.  He is house and crate trained, but no longer needs the crate.  He has been living in an outside run recently, so he will need a bit of time to adjust back to indoor living.  Teko pulls a bit on leash, but an Easy Walk harness should help.  He knows the commands sit, come, get back and go.  Teko is a smart boy and can get out of a fenced yard, so he will need supervision outside.

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.

Update from Toby's foster family - Mar 31, 2015:

Toby has been a sweet visitor at his temporary foster home. He is such a gentle little guy. Despite his sight and hearing impairments he gets around great. He does look to his foster parents and canine friends for security, he likes to be near his foster parents and often touches our leg with his nose for comfort. Toby met the cat and had no interest in her. It's hard to describe just how sweet this boy is, you have to meet him for yourself!
