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.

Lab Rescue welcomes sponsors for our Labs!  Please visit the Labs Seeking Sponsors page of our website and help a Lab while he or she waits for their forever home.

Bentley (#150190) 

Bentley is a 4 year old neutered yellow male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. Bentley is good with other dogs and needs to go to a cat free hom. He is approved for children aged 10 and up. He weighs 87 lbs. If Bentley’s new home has a fence, he would really like it to be solid. Bentley is a very sweet, happy guy who is looking forward to living a life of luxury at his new forever family’s home. He liked riding in the car with the rescue volunteers too!

Update on Bentley from his foster family July 11, 2015:

Bentley arrived today and he's doing great with the resident dogs, Great house manners and super loving boy. He's so loving and is seeking a family he can dote on. He has given my chin so many kisses that I know I can skip my next facial. 

My one 'funny story'...he piano surfs! Yes, you read that right...he piano surfs. I cleaned up everything before he arrived but it seems I left an open bag of treats on the piano. From downstairs I head 'barruummff' as paws met keys. THEN...'badump, badump' of dog running down the stairs and he popped up on the sofa and dropped the OPEN treat bag in my lap. Nothing taken...just a 'you missed these and I'd like one ' message. (think I could teach him to text me instead?) 

He's great on a leash! I popped him in a harness and he and one of the resident labs and I went out for a mile long walk. Not much meandering and he doesn't pull at all; but he is at the end of the leash. Super walk for all three of us.  He might be a great partner for a runner because he doesn't meander much.

This big boy is now taking up two cushions on the sofa and settling in for his first sleep in his new foster home. 

Bentley rocks! Just rocks!

Black Bear (#150326)

Watch Black Bear play on 

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

Blue (#150473) and Ginger (#150475)

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

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

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

Bolin (#150230)

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

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

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

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

Brazil (#150450)

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

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

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

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 - Jul 28, 2015:

Buck is an energetic and affectionate 1 year old. He loves to burn off energy by taking long walks, playing sweetly with his foster brother, and playing fetch in the backyard. He knows "drop it", "sit", "stay", "ready", and "get the ball" for playing fetch. He is a quick learner, learning "lay down" in a matter of minutes! He has also learned how to go up and down the stairs, so he will do just fine in a two-story home! This boy will keep you in a good mood all day, and have you laughing at some of his silly antics. He loves to nap sprawled out on his back, and he'll greet you by spinning in circles around your legs and giving you "kisses" if you ask. He would love to go to a home with another dog that he can run around and play keep away with, but he would also do just fine as the only dog in the house. He needs a family that will forgive his occasional puppy behavior (mouthing) and provide consistent training and positive reinforcement. He is treat-motivated, very focused, and will work hard at learning anything you ask of him!

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.

Watch sweet Cashew romp around with a tennis ball during play time.

Update from Cashew's foster family - Jul 6, 2015:

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

Charlie (#150086)


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

Update from Charlie's foster family - Jul 16, 2015:

Charlie is going to be the perfect companion for the right home. He is sweet, loves his people and tries very hard to please his humans. He loves loving, squeaker balls and walks. He follows us around all the time and will wait outside a door until we come out. 

He did great with his heartworm treatment quiet time even though much of it was spent in the 'doggie apartment'. He did great in the crate. Now that he has been in the ‘big house’ for the last month, he is the last one at the door when we leave and the first to greet us. He loves having a family! 

He does well with the five resident dogs but prefers the girls who are a bit quieter to the more vocal ones. 

He’d be fine in an apartment or townhome because he isn’t much of a barker, he navigates stairs well and doesn’t need much exercise. He has been diagnosed with partial laryngeal paralysis: one side is paralyzed but the other side is just fine and while he wheezes or coughs sometimes, it is very intermittent and has actually improved since we got him. It shouldn’t impact normal exercise, but he won’t be hiking the Appalachian Trail. 

We cannot emphasize too much how much he appreciates his humans. He follows us everywhere. Loves having his head and ears scratched. He has taken over the dog bed outside our bedroom and is first to greet us in the morning. He has a tremendous amount of love to share with anyone who has a squeaky ball or two in his house.

Duke is such a sweet, loving, boy. He has great house manners, is easy on the leash, and loves his people.

Update from Duke's foster family Jul 4, 2015:

Look into my eyes and realize that I'm a sweet boy looking forward to someday (hopefully soon) meeting my forever family. Now that I have you under my spell, I need to give you information so that you know to ask for me when you call your AC. My name is Duke and I'm pretty laid back. I've gone through that puppy stage and I'm now a very settled 5 year old boy. As your only dog, I can lay at your feet loving on you and (hint, hint) tending to that favorite bone that you got me. It doesn't matter if we live in an apartment, townhouse or a home, I'll be happy and content being with you. You see, I'm very low maintenance. Feed me, give me water, take me for walks, a place to rest my head, LOVE me and cherish me. In return I will give you my heart and soul. 
Love,

She is a bit shy except when it comes to chasing critters. Yes, Gabby has a strong prey drive and her new home will need a six foot fence and no cats.  She is loving and gentle with lovely house manners.

Gabby is good with other dogs and approved for ages 10 and up.  Gabby is heartworm negative.

Update from Gabby's foster -July 29, 2015:

How can you resist this face.....Gabby is 48 lbs of love and devotion. She is a bit on the shy side but warms up quickly. She would do best in a quieter home. Gabby has great house manners and does not need to be crated, she is very content. If you are looking for lots of love in your life this is the girl for you......

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 is up to date on vaccines  but is heartworm positive.  Lab Rescue will pay for her treatment if done at one our vets.  This gentle girl knows several commands and is content with just a couple of short walks each day. She must go to a home in the suburbs or a rural area as she is from the country and unaccustomed to city life.

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

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

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

Jackson weighs 73 pounds, is up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative. Because he is such a country boy, Jackson will need to go to a home in a rural or suburban area since he is not used to the noises and traffic of the city.

Update from Jackson's foster - Jul 26, 2015:

Jackson is doing fine. He is taking his pills like a champ and eating happily without any problems. Poor guy is on bed rest from his recent surgery for the next couple of weeks. He is taking it like a pro, no complaints, just gives us the puppy face to plead for a while and then just falls asleep, really good boy. We are working on walking on a leash- he is very strong but getting better. He is very friendly. He does not mind cats, just sniffed our barn cat and moved on.

Janey (#150472)

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

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

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

Jerry (#150198) 

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

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

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

London (#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 have a confident and calm companion dog to show her the ropes.  London enjoys spending time outside walking around or resting under her favorite bush.  She is pretty low energy and is calm and quite in her crate.  London prefers her humans speak to her in a quiet and gentle voice and responds well to gentle encouragement.  She seems to know some words like breakfast and walk.  She has a good appetite, but prefers to eat privately in her crate.  London likes when her humans lay on the floor with her and pet her.

Update from London's foster - Jul 31, 2015:

London is a five year old who was found pregnant some months ago. She had her pups, she raised them with help from a Lab Rescue foster, and they have found their homes. Now she is ready for hers. She needs time and kindness as she gets to know you as she has not had a lot of exposure to humans. She is an easy companion. She is very calm and absolutely quiet. London will follow my dog’s lead. She waits for him to go out of and into the house. She will also lie down near him. She adores cheese and thinks Velveeta is the best! She loves her time outdoors and she likes to lounge under some plantings to keep out of the sun. She will watch my dog play fetch but doesn’t join in.

Jul 29, 2015:

London found herself a very shady spot behind the lounge chairs to relax this afternoon. She loves to hang out outside and is happy to watch while you garden or play fetch with the other dog. She is quiet in the house and she is a low energy girl. She adores cheese and cheese-flavored dog treats. She is looking for a human who lives a low-key life in a quiet neighborhood. She doesn't mind if you head out for the day but she wants a dog friend to keep her company.

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 - Jul 24, 2015:

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

Jun 21, 2015:

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

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 22, 2015:

Mako is a love. He loves to snuggle. He loves to play with other dogs, loves toys and loves water. We are still working with him on his crate training.We believe he lived the first 7 months of his life outdoors so missed the important training times. He is doing better,but in true teenage form, can be a little stubborn at times and has relapses. We will continue to work with him on this. Other than that, he is wonderful, sweet and calm.

Mariner (#150257)

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 - Jul 30, 2015: Mariner is doing fabulous in her foster home. She really has come so far since she arrived to lab rescue! She is currently sleeping and wagging her tail! She is to the point where she is almost playful when people come home or get up. She's still uncertain out in the world on a leash but she is doing fantastic. 

Jun 10, 2015: Foster momma made me wear this silly hat to celebrate the fact that I am starting MY new year. I am now healthy and free of heartworms. I even played fetch tonight - well only once because I brought the ball back and she threw it again. Clearly she doesn't want the ball! I am still not ready to walk on a leash - the world is still a little scary but I am doing really well in the house and in the backyard so if you have a fenced yard, a friendly dog and a place in your heart for me - call your A/C! I am ready - just tell them that Mariner sent you!!

Marley #7 (140793)  

Marley is an 18 month old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 55 pounds and should gain 5, and is good with dogs.  She is heartworm negative and approved for kids 10 and up.  Marley is a super sweet girl who will sneak into your heart as soon as you meet her by rolling over and asking for belly rubs.  She walks well on leash and and greets other dogs perfectly.  Marley loves to play fetch and toys that squeak.  She is high energy, but settles nicely once she has run and played a bit.  Marley is very agile and can jump a baby gate or a four foot fence if she wants to, but doesn't seek out the opportunity.  She needs a forever family with people who are home more than not and needs a doggy companion.  She will go into her crate for a treat or frozen kong, but isn't happy being in there for extended periods of time.  Marley is completely house trained and sleeps through the night on a dog bed in her foster's room.  She doesn't chew anything she's not supposed to, and knows sit and down.

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

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

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

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

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

Update on Mickey - Jul 5, 2015:

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

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

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

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

Update from Murphy's foster - Jul 19, 2015:

Murphy is so happy to be part of a family again. He has been with us for a short time and has made himself at home. FM was so happy when Murphy came because he actually has to gain weight. Usually she has to feed green beans because her fosters have to lose weight. He loves for you to pet him and he does his little dance when you scratch his butt. He is house trained and he doesn't countersurf. He is wondering why he had to come to the kennel and just wants a family to love him. Call your AC to come and visit Murphy.

From Patty's foster - Jul 25, 2015:

Patty Ponderings: Happy Saturday everyone. Foster Mom says she can't believe that someone hasn't noticed how wonderful I am and hasn't snatched me up. At 7 years of age, I've gotten rid of all my destructive behaviors and I'm pretty laid back. I just want to be with my people. I'm a quiet girl that just needs love, food, water and potty breaks. Well, treats are good too and take them from you with a soft mouth. I don't jump on furniture and I rarely bark. Foster Mom says she has only heard me once. This is kind of nice since I'm approved to live in an apartment or townhouse. I appreciate any attention you give me and I usually will give you soft sweet kisses in return. I love my crate and dog bed too. I pretty much will stay there, door wide open, when I just want to hang around. So, I'm looking for my forever family. Could it be you? I hope so. Call your AC to come to Lynchburg and give me a last name. 
Love, 
Patty 

Jul 22, 2015: Patty's Ponderings: 
Hello again. Today has started out great! You see, each day I get braver and braver which means I am more secure than yesterday. All four of us dogs can go outside together now. You see, Reese is a very tall, long, young athletic girl that sort of scared me when I first got here. She's 3 years old and 85 pounds compared to my 65 pounds and 7 years of age! Have you heard of the saying "the best offense is a good defense"? Well I was a little growly when we first met. A girl has to protect herself! But now,...we get along just fine. I'm not a big play girl and I'm really more of a couch potato but I do like being outside; especially if you are out there. See that's the key, being with you and certainly giving you plenty of kisses. If you are looking for a beautiful girl that has a desire to love her people, call your AC to come visit me in Lynchburg. 
Love, 
Patty 
PS: Foster Mom and Dad love my white speckles. They say that I was around somebody that splattered white paint on my face. I think they are silly!

Reid enjoys being petted and scratched and gives kisses for belly rubs.  He knows sit, down, come, and crawl.  He likes to retrieve and has a ball playing with a Wubba which he will retrieve then toss in the air so he can catch it again.  Reid needs more training as he still jumps up even though he tries to stop himself, and will benefit from formal obedience training. He would do best with an experienced owner and needs a family that will give him training and a fenced yard for him to play in.  

Update from Reid's foster family

Reid is doing great and we see improvements each day. He is still a little mouthy when he gets excited when playing but can be easily redirected. He is a little mischievous and tends to take socks and other items left on the floor. In other words, he's a typical young lab!  He is a very sweet dog that loves to cuddle and give kisses. He is GREAT with other dogs and is very happy to be with anyone who will love him. He loves toys and going for walks. Reid does best with a Easy Walk harness for walks.

She does get excited when she sees squirrels and rabbits. She's house trained , doesn't get into mischief, no counter-surfing. She does best with someone not gone for a full work day. She settles down at night with the others dogs, usually claims part of the bed. I haven't left her very long with one of the other dogs but she doesn't like being left alone too long and/ or kept in a crate.

Update from Rubi's foster - Jul 29, 2015:

Rubi was a little scared when she originally arrived at my home. Some simple love with a safe home has been good for her. Her confidence improves on a daily basis. She needs love, patience and a safe home. Rubi has a strong drive to retrieve and loves her tennis balls. She is affectionate and rolls over on the grass for a belly rub. Ruby is quiet at home and rarely barks. She lays quietly at my feet while I work and comes to me for some head rubs throughout the day. She knows the commands sit, down, stay and shake. While Rubi is a little timid around other large dogs, one can see she is interested and wants to play. She truly would enjoy a "safe" canine companion to play with.

Update from Sally herself! - July 7, 2016:

Good morning! Sally #2 here. Just stopped in to say I'm ready for my forever family. Don't get me wrong, I love my foster family. But would love to make a family very happy. I know sit, come and crate. Love tennis balls and played fetched for the first time last week (it was fun!). I was a good girl at the Vet when they gave me shots and removed my sutures- and I got treats! I have gone on some walks with the two resident Labs. One even licked my face- so silly. I like cats too much so my preference would be a no- cat household. Contact your AC to come meet me.

Shooter is a 6 year old neutered chocolate male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is approved for kids ages 10 and up and weighs 53 pounds but should be closer to 60.  Being in a home agrees with Shooter and he has learned about the comfort of living indoors!

His hobbies are being petted, stretching out someplace sunny and warm, and going for walks. This little guy is a country boy and would do best adopted to a single family suburban or rural home.  He thinks giving you a lab lean is the best way to get his back and butt scratched.  He isn’t big on retrieving yet, but will investigate a toy if thrown.  Shooter is clever boy who already knows sit, down and come, and is good on lead.  

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

Shooter is a country boy at heart and is looking for a home in a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of the city. He enjoys hanging out in the backyard in the nice weather and absolutely loves his morning and evening walks. Then it's time to chill out again. He has very good house manners and doesn't need to be crated. He and one of the resident labs enjoy wrestling a few times a day and then they hang out quietly. 

March 13, 2015:

Shooter is settling in his foster home and enjoying his foster brother and sister. He is eating very well and is gaining weight. Shooter loves to run around outside and loves to lie in the sun. Shooter is crate trained but his house manners are great so he really doesn't need to be crated. Shooter is great on lead and loves to go for walks.

Stetson(#150448) & Ella (#150449)

Stetson and Ella are a bonded pair of chocolate labs.  They are both 10 years old and are good with other dogs.  They are approved for kids 10 and up and are heartworm negative.  Stetson is a neutered male weighing 81 pounds, and Ella is a spayed female weighing 85 pounds, and she needs to lose about 15.  Their coats are pretty sparse and washed out due to poor living conditions, but with proper care and nutrition, they should be just fine.  Stetson and Ella are both being treated for a skin infection and need weekly medicated baths.  These two are looking forward to starting their new lives and are seeking a family to spoil and love them.  They are not suitable for apartment, condo or townhouse living.

Update from Ella and Stetson's foster - July 3, 2015 : Ella and Stetson have made huge strides in the last 3 days, Ella in particular. Stetson is much more the extravert. Stetson is a lover and enjoys snuggling, sleeping on dog beds and has settled in nicely. He also likes to snoopervise in the kitchen. It has taken Ella a bit longer to feel comfortable, but is now much more relaxed. Ella likes carrying around the tennis ball. Originally, she was reluctant to give it up. But when I bounced it across the kitchen, she thought that this was great fun and kept bring it back for more. After 20 minutes of this game, she started dropping the ball in my lap. I gave her a good brushing this afternoon and removed piles of fur. She was enjoying it so much, she didn't want me to stop. In the beginning, Ella needed assistance going up the four deck stairs. With the new medication and practice, she will now go up and down by herself, although she prefers a little nudge to help her get started.

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?

Tank #2 (#150512)

Tank is a 6 month old black neutered male.  He weighs 54 pounds, but should gain a few more.  He is heartworm negative, good with other dogs and approved for kids 10 and up.  Tank is a playful and happy boy who loves to be touched and petted.  He can be very vocal while playing and overall did well  with both the male and female dogs he was tested with.  Tank has not quite grown into his name, as he's small for his age and needs a few hearty meals to get him to a healthy weight.  He is a hungry boy, but doesn't have any issues with his bowl being taken away and even waits to be released before eating.  More on Tank as we get to know him better.

Update on Tank - Jul 27, 015:

Sweet Tank is a very playful and loving boy who enjoys playing as much as our Lab will let him, but is quick to settle once she's had enough. He enjoys playing fetch, being outside and being around his people. He loves toys and has not chewed on anything he isn't supposed to. He loves to curl up on a dog bed or a human bed to sleep. He is a very sweet boy that will make a great addition to his new family. 

7/21/2015 - TANK #2 has not quite grown into his name! He's a little guy for his age and needs a few extra steak-n-potato dinners to get him to a healthy weight. He hasn't noticed, though, he's a happy kid!

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.

Update from Teko's foster - Jul 17, 2015:

Teko is doing well and is recovering from his heartworm treatment. He needs some quiet time for the next 30 days while he recovers. He sleeps like a baby on dog bed near foster mom. A solid 8-9 hrs per night. He is solidly house trained, does well in the crate. He likes attention from men. He is a calm dog. He walks well on the leash. This guy is a gem!

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

Update from Thunder and Sparks' foster family:  

Meet the wonder twins: Thunder and Sparks! They are calm, good natured, well behaved, great with all of the neighbor dogs in their foster home, and think they are tiny lap dogs. They are very large, but because of their low key personalities, it isn't even remotely an issue.  
They love snuggling with each other and their foster family. They are making their foster mom laugh because they will squeeze into the smallest of spaces just to be able to snuggle with each other.

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 on Toby - Jul 26, 2015:

Toby is quite a character. I get to visit him often, and he always welcomes me with a wagging tail. He loves the company of other dogs and will need another dog in his new family. He is very low maintenance. He's an older fellow who goes with the flow and is happy to chill most of the day. He likes to go in the yard and explore.

Zayn is a fun loving young guy looking for a family to take him on a life full of adventures! Zayn is such a handsome boy, playful, energetic and wants to please. He absolutely loves to play fetch. Zayn is a great swimmer and really loved swimming in the pool, add in the ball and he's gone to heaven! He definitely thinks he is a lap lab and wants nothing more than to give and receive affection. Like any young dog he will benefit from consistent training and exercise. He's a big lovable goof! He is good with other dogs and great with people. His previous owners said that he was and had lived with a cat so he may be good with cats.
