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.

Puppies 

Lab Rescue is currently hosting several puppies. These puppies are all up to date on their shots and are being socialized well in their foster homes.

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.

Update from Ben's foster family - 10/25/2014

Beautiful Big Ben cannot believe he has not been adopted yet! He 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. So far he has not asked to get on furniture and is content on the comfy dog bed.  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.

Brandy is doing well, loves everyone, other dogs, people and kids! She has a wonderfully happy and loving disposition, and knows her basic commands.  
Brandy has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, which is a a fast spreading and malignant form of cancer. Amputation is the only way to stop it, so her right front leg has been removed. Unfortunately in most cases it has spread when it has been diagnosed and most dogs will have radiographic signs of the disease three to four months later. Approximately 90% of dogs will die within the first year It seems cruel that such a young lab is affected. Our Lab Rescue foster home will provide Brandy with love, care and comfort for as long as they can; they will be her final forever home and we thank them for their love and dedication.

Cody is a 7 year old chocolate neutered male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  Cody weighs 58 lbs, is good with other dogs, cats and is approved for children aged 10 and up. Cody is a sweet and gentle soul.  He is incredibly sweet and a country boy at heart so he would prefer not to live in a city, an apartment or a busy neighborhood.  


Update from Cody's foster family 10/9/2014

Cody lived with a cat for a few days and did well around him.  Cody is mellow and happy and pretty much goes with the flow. He seems to always have a smile on his face. He loves meeting people. He gets along well with other dogs, and meeting new dogs is not a problem.   But he loves being the center of attention. He runs after a ball, but doesn't get the pick up part yet.  He goes in the crate without a problem.  He's quiet in the house and loves curling up under things, the desk, the chaise lounge, the bookcase. He enjoys getting in the car and on the bed. He'd like to get on the sofa but Cody understands that he needs to stay off that.  He's happy to sit out in the yard, but prefers to dig a hole in the dirt and sit in it. His ideal evening is to lounge on the couch on his back with his head in his foster's lap. Cody will make a great low maintenance companion and doesn't need another dog to keep him company.    Everyone who meets Cody loves him!

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.

Emmy (#140402)

Watch Emmy on 
Emmy is a 7 year old spayed black female.  She is up to date on her shots and is now heartworm negative..  She is good with other dogs and cats too! She weighs 65 lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up. Emmy is a very friendly and sweet girl. She is a wonderful companion who loves to be with you and likes everyone she meets (human and animal).  She even shared her food with a kitten.  She may have a degenerative nerve problem which affects her hind legs causing a limp at times. 

Update from Emmy's foster family 9/29/2014:

Emmy is one of the sweetest dogs around! She is a smart girl. She is super mellow and easygoing. She has a spinal neuropathy which causes her to sometimes drag her rear feet/legs and lose balance. She can go up and down a few steps. She loves to walk around a grassy year and enjoys short walks.   Emmy is good with dogs but prefers to be the center of attention.   She is very calm until she hears a squeaky toy, and then she turns into a pup who loves rolling over with her toys. She does not climb on furniture even if you ask her to. She knows commands like sit, stay and come here. As you can see in her youtube video, she walks absolutely fine, but she stumbles a lot on regular and hardwood floors, so she would do best in a home with carpeted floors, or area rugs/runners. Emmy is looking for a home where the owner is home more often than not. She would be a perfect match for someone who loves to give and get affection, is home regularly, and would like to do short strolls on grass with their pet.

Update from Hector's foster family- 9/25/2014

Update from Koa and her foster family 10/1/14 - 
Look at all these AWESOME facts about ME! 
1) I am the 700th dog brought in to Lab Rescue in 2014! 
2) I have been in my foster home for 1 month…I am healing really good! 
3) I LIKE CATS! (I know this may be important to help me find my forever family) 
4) I get along great with my two foster brothers (they are chocolate labs too) 
6) I take treats really gently (I LOVE Milkbones and Snausages) 
7) I don’t beg when my foster people are eating but if I stay here much longer my foster mom says she is worried my fur brothers will start teaching me bad habits. 
8) Since I am still healing from my car wreck foster mom says we have to wait a little longer to work on good leash skills but she is letting me kinda practice in the front yard….so far I am pretty good at it. 
9) She also keeps talking about some “sit, stay, down…” something or the other….not sure what that is but she says that training has to wait too… I bet I will ace that test! 
10) I am not shy about meeting new people…I have walked up to all my neighbors and let them adore me all they wanted. 
11) I am not timid or skittish….I like to explore everywhere and everything…loud noises don’t bother me a bit… After all, I am Koa the Brave! 
12) I sleep through the night (shhhh….don’t tell but my foster mom has been letting me sleep on her really comfy Tempur Pedic). 
13) I have been learning to like my crate and I have been doing great during the day when they have to go to that place called work. 
14) I picked up the house routine pretty quick. I don’t think I have been an inside dog before so it took a little while to learn inside stuff and let them know when I needed to do “outside stuff”. 
15) Although I need to gain a few pounds….I am petite! I don’t think my girlish figure will be above 50lbs….which is perfect for someone looking for a little lap lab! 
16) I don’t mind being touched anywhere…even my toes (pedicures = heck ya!) Belly rubs always welcome. 
17) I give dainty kisses…just a quick, dry…lick lick.

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 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.

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.

Update from Sally's foster family 9/28/2014

Sally is a rock star, just look at all the video's she has out!  She is a joyful, tail-wagging dog!   She loves being with her people, meeting new people, getting belly rubs and going for car rides. Her house manners are wonderful and she can be left for 4-6 hours with run of the house. For exercise she enjoys long walks, fetching a tennis ball and mind games. She is extremely smart and food motivated so is quick to learn new commands and tricks. In foster dog class she has had the opportunity to experiment with agility equipment, nose work and even attempted to use a skateboard. Her vocabulary includes the commands sit, down, stay, wait and mat. Trickwise she has learned touch, spin, shake and paws up and will bring her bowl back to the kitchen when she is finished eating. Sally is fearful of dogs that she sees while on leash so she would do best in a quiet home with a large fenced yard.  She would do best with a more dog experienced person who will work with her and would enjoy a smart dog. Sally's heartworm treatment has been completed and she is in good health patiently waiting for the phone to ring!

Update from Scout's foster family 10/25/2014

A couple of our fosters have had us teetering on the brink of “foster failure” and now we have another one: Scout:“The FP’s say that I reveal a little more about myself every day, like peeling an onion. Except I don’t make them cry- just smile and laugh. I went for my first real walk last weekend and while I pulled a tiny bit the first 100 yards or so, I was very good. I touched noses with one of the horses and she seemed okay, except she had hay breath. I have also been allowed to hang out on the front porch without a leash when the FP’s are out there. I went to visit a different cat upstairs and she did fine with me- she didn’t try to chase me or bite me so I was gentle with her (hoping she’d share her food with me). One of the crazy barn cats ran through the house during a thunderstorm but I didn’t join the others chasing him. I did get a bath last weekend; I was very good once FD put me in the tub, and it felt so good afterwards that I just sort of loped around in the sunshine. I really liked the towel stuff and I LOVED being brushed- I kind of melted down to the floor as FM was brushing me. I sleep with one of the resident dogs and FM caught us in a pile one morning this week. I have asked some of the residents to play, but they haven’t been in the mood the same time that I am, but that’s okay. I did try to humor the FP’s by retrieving a tennis ball a couple times but I am not too keen on that Kong thing, so when the other dogs took it from me, it was no big deal.   Oh, FM said I better list what I DON’T do: I don’t bark, nor dig, nor chew, nor get in the trash I also still need to gain 10 pounds or so (30 if I want to look like the resident dogs). I feel better each day and have a lot more energy than when I got here and was just a couch potato. 

           
Licks and love, Scout 

   

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.


   

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!

Suzy (#140647)

Suzy is a 4 year old spayed chocolate female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  She is good with other dogs and must go to a home with another dog. She's also good with cats and is approved for kids aged 10 and up.  She weighs 88 lbs. Suzy is a very pretty girl who hasn't had an easy life so far and is looking for a family who will give her the love, attention, and exercise she deserves.  Suzy has never had any formal training. She had little socialization when she came to Lab Rescue and will need a patient family who is willing to work with her and continue to encourage her and take things slowly.  She must have a fenced in yard and cannot live in an apartment/townhouse or busy neighborhood.

Watch Suzy on 

Update from Suzy's foster family - 10/18/14 

Suzy is beginning to show her personality. She now greets her fosters excitedly, when they come home. She has discovered antlers and she loves them! She now prefers to eat with the pack rather than eat in isolation. We had a friend over, and Suzy joined her on the sofa, surprising us and our cat-person friend. Sometimes we have Suzy sleep on the bed with us, and she's quiet all night; usually she prefers sleeping on the floor or in a dog bed. Suzy is happiest when she's running around the yard, playing a game of keep-away with the resident lab. She has pretty well mastered doors, and will go in and out without much hesitation.  Suzy is positively joyful when she is outside... big smile, tongue lolling.  She even "begs" to go outside to play ball, and she runs all over the yard amusing herself with it or she'll taunts the resident lab to come chase her. She loves to fetch, but has not learned she needs to give back the ball so it can be thrown again. Suzy has learned "ball," "eat," and "let's go out to pees and poops." She's very smart and will learn quickly once she trusts in human kindness.  She has come a very long way from being the ever-frightened girl who initially joined the pack. We love this girl and look forward to helping her find a forever home where she will get all the love she so deserves.
