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. 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.

Abbie (#140292) 

WATCH ABBIE PLAY         


Abbie is a 3 year old black spayed female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  Abbie is good with other dogs, weighs 89lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up. Abbie is a country girl and would prefer not to live in a city or apartment.

Update from Abbie's foster family - 4/13/2014

Abbie is such a good girl and such a little love. It doesn't seem like she has been allowed on furniture before, so when her foster mom tries to get her to cuddle, she sits half on and half off. She loves getting loved on though by her foster mom and her foster fur brothers. She seems to be house trained, and is just a sweet, friendly little girl. She likes running after tennis balls, but isn't super quick about getting them. She is fairly low-key but definitely has some spunk when she runs.

Abbie is a very friendly girl and likes nothing more than to rest her head in your lap.  She has good manners and likes to retrieve but would rather just spend time with people.  She knows some basic commands such as sit, come and down.  She would benefit from some formal training and walks well with an Easy Walk. Abbie is going to make a wonderful companion!


 

 
 


   

Ash (#140264)

Ash is a 1 year old black neutered male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  He is good with other dogs, weighs 40 lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up.

Ash is a cute little guy who is ready to rock and roll!  He loves people and other dogs.  He has lots of silly happy energy as most lab pups do and he always wants to play.  He is good in the car, OK on leash but could use some more experience with it.  We shouldn't forget to mention that he is super kissy and fun too.

Ava (#140244)

Ava is a 1 year old black spayed female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  Ava weighs 67lbs, is good with others dogs and approved for children aged 10 and up.

Ava is a sweet and affectionate girl.  She is also an energetic young girl that needs an active family and would love to have a fenced in yard to play in.  Ava is housebroken and crate trained. She can be shy with new people and situations at first but once she realizes you are OK she will wag her tail and give out lots of kisses.  She is good on the leash but does best with an EZ Walk harness.  She knows some basic commands such as sit, lay down and "pillow" which means go to her dog bed.  She loves to play fetch and run around and play.  However, she also loves to curl up and just rest her head on your lap.  She would do well with some more training but she is a fast learner.

Barley is a 6 year old yellow male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  he is good with other dogs and needs to go to a home without a cat.  He is approved for kids aged 2 and up and weighs 71 lbs.  He know a number of commands including sit, down, heel, stay and come.  He loves to swim and is on a grain free diet for allergies.  He loves to retrieve tennis balls.  Barley needs a lot of exercise.

Update from Barley's foster family 4/1/2014

What a wonderful dog Barley is! He doesn't need to be crated anymore, not that he minded it when he was, and he's perfect left alone during the work day. He has excellent inside behavior--no counter surfing, very limited barking, no begging for food, very calm, and only chews what he's supposed to. He knows sit, stay, come, and leave it, and loves being told "Good Boy Barley!"  He doesn't usually go on the furniture unless invited.  He'll also be very nice to you if he knows a brushing is in order. Outside, Barley loves to play ball but is not obsessed with it. He enjoys laying on the back deck to enjoy the sunshine and loves to go for long walks. While he loves being outside, he is not a high energy dog--he just likes to hang out and enjoy nice weather.

Barley is Mr. Social! He loves meeting people, particularly the little kids in his house who’ll give him some tasty treats! He loves to get baths, and hops right in and sits in the tub till you tell him to get out. He even likes to go hang out in the tub when no one is looking!  Barley is such a wonderful dog.  All Barley wants in life is a family to snuggle with on the couch--he puts his head on the edge and just waits for you to ask him to jump up. Barley is going to make a great addition to someone's family, and his fosters love him. That is Barley in a nutshell. Oh, and don't forget that he's approved for younger children. He is a GEM!!

Bear (#140192)

Bear is a 6 year old yellow neutered male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  Bear is good with other dogs, weighs 72lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up.  Bear is a very sweet boy.  He knows basic commands, doesn't pull on lead and seems to have a fairly average energy level. Bear does have hypothyroidism and is on medication to treat it.

Update from Bear's foster family - 4/14/2014

Bear has become buddies with his foster fur brothers, the cat, and all of the human foster family. He is so comfortable now that he sleeps on his own bed right by his foster fur brothers. He also likes to take a snooze in a chair or better yet on the sofa. He is pretty quiet in the house and only barks when his foster fur brothers start barking when a visitor comes. Bear loves eating, especially yak chews, kibble, and wet food (though not all together!). He does a good job of holding himself back to sit and wait until his foster says “okay, good boy” to get his food. He loves to go for long car rides and would love to travel around with his forever family. He likes looking out at all of the sights as he drives by. Bear met some horses and pigs, and they didn’t seem to bother him either. Bear sleeps well at night in his dog bed and waits for his fosters to get up in the morning. He does like to counter surf but is learning his boundaries. He does not pull on the lead that much with an EZ walk harness. He loves Yak Chews more than antlers or nyla bones. He kind of looks like the Bush's Beans dog because his tongue is often out the side of his mouth and then he gets this goofy look as he stares at you with the right side of his mouth slightly raised. He's such a sweet boy who wants to be your forever buddy!

Bonnie (#140141) & Clyde (#140142)

Bonnie and Clyde are a bonded pair of labs who must be adopted together.  Bonnie is a 5 year old black female and Clyde is an 8 year old black male.  They are both up to date on their shots and are heartworm negative.  Bonnie weighs 101 lbs and needs to lose at least 15.  Clyde weighs 73 lbs and needs to lose a few too.  They have good house manners and don't need to be crated when they're left alone.  The love peanut butter filled Kongs, like to retrieve and enjoy having something to chew on.

The two for one pair adoption special is back in action! Bonnie and Clyde can be adopted for just one adoption fee, double the love at half the price! Just add their two adoption fees together and divide in half, a savings of over 50% for twice the love!

Update from Bonnie and Clyde's foster family 4/8/2014:

Bonnie and Clyde continue to be an amazing duo! Check out this link for a video of the pair! They have lots and lots of fans, they are hoping that the right one will be their forever family.

Bonnie and Clyde continue to be doing fine with their foster's longer workday. They have free roam of the house and get a mid day visit to do their business outside. They have been perfect guests. They likely are couch potatoes all day with mid day tug of war sessions to pass the time.  They are happy dogs who have so much love to give to their new family.  They have been using harnesses during their walks and are used to wearing them. Clyde will even put his head in the harness as soon as it gets picked up! They ignore other dogs while walking. They would love a home where they can go for regular walks but won’t bug their new family to go if it is raining, too cold, etc. They have been enjoying the warmer weather and love to sun themselves on the back porch. They also love to sit and look out the front door. Clyde has assumed the role of neighborhood watch, while Bonnie prefers to people watch. They especially love when the neighbors deliver treats to them at the front door.

Bonnie and Clyde respond to commands well and know “sit,” “paw/shake,” “stay” and “wait.” They are so easy to take care of and are such a joy to have around. They were clearly well loved dogs with their last family and will reward their new family with love, companionship and devotion.    Bonnie and Clyde also enjoy eating pieces of ice and will happily clean the floor up when the ice maker shoots ice everywhere! Bonnie and Clyde have had a few visitors to the house. Bonnie was very welcoming with butt wiggles and kisses and Clyde's shyness was easily fixed with some treats! Don't let Clyde's initial shyness fool you, he is a lover, snuggler and sweetheart. He has been sleeping with his head on the pillow next to his foster while Bonnie snores away at the bottom of the bed.  They are laid back dogs who are happy to hang out on the couch with their family all day long but are up for a walk at a moments notice.  They have had several supervised visits with the resident cat. They did well and were respectful of her and couldn't figure out what all the hisses were about. They seemed to care more about her food then her being on the bed.

Brady (#130718)

Brady is a 3 year old black neutered male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. He weighs 57 lbs. 

Update from Brady's foster family Apr 14, 2014:

Brady continues to be a fantastic house-guest for his fosters. Though it initially took some time to build trust in his humans, you can’t find a more dedicated and loving companion once he knows that you are going to take care of him. He listens very well, and responds immediately to verbal direction. All he really wants is to make his humans happy. In the house Brady likes to be nearby, but does not feel the need to be under foot. He is happy to hang out on a dog bed or in one of his favorite spots with a toy, and will come over for snuggles and pets if you stay still long enough. All in all he is very easy going inside the house. Now that the snow has cleared and the temperatures have started to warm up, he enjoys hanging out in the backyard with the resident dogs, and thinks going on walks is a blast. Brady is a great dog, and with the right home, continued structure, and positive enforcement of rules he is going to be a wonderful companion for one lucky family.

Brownie (#140295)


Brownie is a 4 year old chocolate spayed female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  Brownie weighs in at a whopping 93lbs and needs to lose around 25-30lbs.  She is good with cats and other dogs and is approved for children aged 10 and up.

Update from Brownie's foster family 4/12/2014
Brownie is a gorgeous chocolate girl that is looking for her forever family! She has plenty of energy and would love to have another dog to play with or a fenced yard where she can burn some energy. She is house trained and lets you know when she needs to go out by hitting a bell with her tail by the door.  She is also crate trained but does just fine with free reign of the house. Brownie has not had any real training so needs an owner that will be willing to take her to training and work with her. She needs an easy walk harness and can get excited around other dogs and people on walks. Brownie is a very affectionate girl that loves to be with her family. She can tend to slip out the door quickly so care should be taken when opening and closing doors. She has started to settle into her foster home and sleeps quietly through the night. She is a healthy, smart girl and will be trainable. Brownie would also love to be petted for as long as you'd like as she loves lots of attention and will give you her great lab lean to show how much she appreciates it. With regular exercise and training this girl will be a superb addition to an active family!

Daisy is an 8 year old spayed chocolate female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  She weighs 63lbs and should gain a few.  She is good with other dogs AND cats and approved for children aged 2 and up.  Daisy is a special girl who is blind, but she has great recall and you would never know she can't see.

Update from Daisy's foster family- 3/26/2014

Daisy is so incredibly loving and gentle. She likes nothing better than to be your companion. She can often be found trolling for someone to sit on the sofa so she can climb up into your lap for a nap. Her bright orange fur from living outside is almost completely replaced by beautiful dark chocolate. She has gained weight and now finally realizes she doesn't need to gulp down her food. She sits very nicely for treats and has learned to take them gently. Daisy is such a pleasure to foster.
She is just the most loving, cuddly girl. She has super thick, soft fur that reminds her foster of a teddy bear. Daisy is definitely adjusting to being an inside dog very quickly - she barks at her foster as soon as she is done with her business and wants to go back in the warm house. She is very friendly to every person and every dog she meets. She has been the perfect house guest. And she she likes cats.......  It is amazing to watch her memorize the house.  She knows her way to the water bowl now and knows where she is going to go potty.  Daisy is just an incredibly friendly, loving girl.  She likes to spend the afternoon lounging by her foster's son on the couch.  She is also getting along very well with the resident dogs. You would never know she is 8 years old as she is quite spunky and happy.

Flyer (#140169)

Flyer is a 2 year old black neutered male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  Flyer is good with other dogs (no cats), weighs 87lbs. and is approved for children aged 10 and up.  Flyer is a gorgeous, 

friendly and very strong guy who is looking to be an active participant in the game of life.  He is looking for a family that is active and committed to providing him with lots of stimulation and exercise.

Update from Flyer's foster family - 3/23/2014

Flyer is such a sweet, funny gentleman. He's got bundles of energy to burn, but he settles surprisingly well, especially if there's something tasty to chew on around. He needs an experienced handler or someone who will be firm with him when he feels like doing his own thing (like counter-surfing). Otherwise, he's a total hunk of a guy who just wants some sweet loving. He adores belly rubs and tries to do some lab leaning when his fosters are sitting down, but he stands taller than their laps, so his leans turn into some awkward dance moves of cat-like nuzzling. He's a maniac on a regular leash but walks like a dream as soon as you put him on an Easy Walk harness. It's also quite obvious he's had training in the past, and he knows sit, down, and maybe even roll over. He saw the foster's cats and pretty much ignored them, but they ran away so he hasn't really been cat-tested. Flyer's a pretty cool dude just waiting for his forever home! .

Hampton is a 9 year old yellow neutered male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  He weighs 75 lbs and is good with other dogs.  He is approved for kids of all ages and is just a total sweetheart of a dog. 

Hampton, now Bartlett is a distinguished gentleman who is looking for a home where he'll  always be at the side of his human companions.   He has never met a person he did not like! He loves attention, especially a good ear rub, and will give you a paw to urge you to continue to pet him if you stop. These days he is largely a couch potato and spends much of the day snoozing, but he prefers to do that with his family close by. He is great with kids of all ages (although can be a bit clumsy on his feet these days, so he just needs a little help to make sure he does not accidentally knock little ones down). Bartlett is also very food motivated. He does like to get out for walks/sniffing around, though usually he is happy to do his business fairly quickly and keep those walks short. He loves to swim. Bartlett cannot do stairs anymore, owing to his arthritis, and although he manages to get around on hard wood floors, he has a definite preference for carpet. No stairs for Hampton.

Herbert has been an absolute pleasure to have around. All he wants is somebody to love. He follows his foster everywhere he goes or lies at his feet and naps. He's a lovely walker on the leash and just wants to mosey along with his favorite human. He loves being outside and soaking up the sun. He's such an easy guy with a heart of gold that he reminds his foster of Neil Young's song 'Heart of Gold.' All Herbert wants now is his forever family!

Jabba is a very handsome and friendly boy.  He loves to play in the snow and enjoys playing with balls and stuffed toys.  He is house and crate trained. He has not attended formal training classes but he is a very smart guy and knows the commands: sit, paw, high five, lay down, up and speak (put all four fingers to thumb).  He does best with an Easy Walk harness as he tends to pull on the leash when he gets excited.  Jabba would love to have a family that will spend time exercising with him.

Kady is a 4 year old spayed black female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm positive; Lab Rescue will pay for her treatment.  She gets along with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up.  She weighs 46 lbs. Kady is a sweet, petite girl, who is friendly and affectionate and just wants to love.  She's a little timid of cars and traffic, so would do best in a quiet neighborhood rather than the city.  She likes other dogs and once she gets to know you, will wag her tail a mile a minute.  

Update from Kady's foster family - 4/9/2014

What a sweet sweet girl!!  Kady is a super sweet young lady. I say lady because she is gentle on the leash, not quick to grab a treat and didn't want breakfast this morning until she had had suitable doggie love time! She is a little bit timid, probably a dog that didn't have a lot of privileges in the house. She discovered herself in the mirror last night. And she clearly wasn't used to a long flight of stairs as I had to carry her downstairs twice, this morning she managed all on her own.

Don't let her timid nature scare you. She loves to be petted and is good with strangers. Kady just looks to her caretaker for a little extra encouragement, as she looks to the other dog in the house. The two dogs were laying on separate beds. Mine started wagging her tail and I praised her. Kady was watching and slowly started wagging her tail. Adorable!! And not having had a lot of privileges also means she does not demand constant attention. Last night she found a bone in the toy basket and settled in an empty dog bed while I worked on Monday night chores. When I finally returned, she got up for doggie love and went back to her bed.

Kady has not had any house accidents and sleeps through the night. She also gets along great with my dog. While Kady doesn't readily respond to commands such as sit, a little practice or dog obedience school will fix that. (She is already responding to gentle reminders)

Kodi is a 10 year old yellow neutered male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  Kodi weighs 75lbs, is good with other dogs (but not good with cats) and is approved for children aged 10 and up.  Kodi is an affectionate and loving guy.  He is looking to live out his golden years in a life of luxury!  He loves stuffed toys and playing ball. He has a nice calm temperament. He knows the basic commands sit and down.  Kodi is looking for lots of love and attention.

Update from Kodi's foster family Apr 14, 2014:

Kodi is a happy guy who always sports an infectious smile. He is curious and very smart. He knows sit, stay, come, and down. At mealtime, he automatically goes into “down,” and he will not eat until he’s told, “OK.” Kodi wants to be where the action is and loves attention, but he’s not needy. When the rest of the human and canine pack is in couch potato mode, he chooses to hang out in his crate for a snooze. He sleeps through the night at the foot of the bed. So far he is crated when left alone, but he probably doesn’t need to be. He loves butt rubs, but has not shown much interest in balls, chew toys, or the stuffed toys in the toy basket. Kodi gets along great with the resident labs, but he would probably be just as happy as a solo dog. He is very interested in the cats, even when they hiss at him. But they don’t hide from him and he hasn’t chased them, so the jury is still out on how he’d do in a home with cats. Kodi would do best, however, in a home without many stairs. This dreamy guy will make someone a wonderful companion.

LaBelle is a super gal.  She has good manners, is very friendly and loves getting attention. She also really enjoys spending time in the company of other canine companions. When LaBelle came into Lab Rescue she had a very large mass on her abdomen which has since been removed, so she will have to take it easy until she is fully recovered. She has no problem taking her medicine with some delicious peanut butter and snuggling up on the dog bed.

Lacy is a 5 year old spayed black female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  She is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up.  She weighs 82 lbs. Lacy has a torn ACL in her front leg and is currently being evaluated.  Lab Rescue will pay for her surgery if it's needed. 

Update from Lacy's foster family 4/8/2014

Lacy is a very sweet girl. She gets along with the resident lab but is more interested in attention from her human housemates! Lacy loves to chase the tennis ball outside and will bring it back to you each time. She also enjoys running around the yard with her foster sibling. Lacy's second favorite toy is a stuffed goose, which she carries around and plays with indoors. On rainy days, Lacy has been perfectly content to lay on her bed while her foster parents watch tv. If doing chores, Lacy is curious and wants to know what her foster parents are up to. At night, Lacy sleeps on her bed in the bedroom. During the day, Lacy has access to three rooms of the house along with the other dog. She has not needed crating and has had no accidents while foster parents are out. Lacy is a gentle girl and would love your affection!

Lestat (#140241) and Onyx (#140240)

 

Lestat and Onyx are a bonded pair of males that must be adopted together.  Lestat is a 10 year old yellow neutered male and Onyx is a 5 year old black neutered male. They are up to date on their shots and heartworm negative. Lestat weighs 97lbs and needs to lose around 25 while Onyx weighs a good 75lbs.  They are good with cats and other dogs and approved for children aged 7 and up. 

The two for one pair adoption special is back in action! Onyx and Lestat can be adopted for just one adoption fee, double the love at half the price! Just add their two adoption fees together and divide in half, a savings of over 50% for twice the love!

Update from their foster family 4/2/2014

The boys are doing wonderfully! They are eating and playing just like any lab should! They absolutely love chasing balls! They also demand belly rubs, the typical labs! These guys really love each other and are never far from the other, checking out what the other is doing. They are a joy to foster and will make an easy transition into their forever family. They provide lots of love and affection! Onyx and Lestat have had no problem settling into and taking over the house. You would think they have been living here for years. They picked up the routine and make themselves comfy on the couch, chair, dog bed, their foster’s bed... well anywhere. Onyx is a lover of chasing tennis balls. He found the large stash of them in the garage and decided that he needed a few more in the house. So now he has 6 or 7 to chase. These two are truly a bonded pair and when Onyx gets the chance he is always checking out his pal and initiating play. The great thing about these two is that there is very little more work than one and they will keep each other company all day. Lestat and Onyx are a pair of very affectionate guys that love to cuddle. Both of these handsome boys enjoy retrieving, swimming and especially getting affection.  They are good with walking on lead and Onyx is used to using a Gentle Leader.  Both dogs know basic commands such as sit, stay, leave it, mind it, down, step up and go back.  They are house trained and crate trained but no longer need the crate when left out. They are great with other dogs of all sizes, cats and even rabbits!  Lestat is a talker, walking around with a lot to say and not shy about speaking up that its time for a belly rub and Onyx is quick to be a lap dog and happy to have a place to rest his head.

Lila Bean (#130760)

Lila Bean is a 2 year old spayed black female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  She gets along well with other dogs and cats, and is approved for kids aged 10 and up.  She weighs 47 lbs. Lila Bean is a sweet, energetic girl but is currently healing from an injured elbow so she is on energy restriction. 

Update from Lila Bean's foster family 3/22/14 - 

Lila Bean is doing just great. On doctor’s orders she is crated when not on walks or with us on a leash in the house. Her crate is in the family room and near the two resident Labs and she is good with both of them. She is by a walkout door and loves watching the birds/squirrels/etc. in the backyard. Lila Bean has a way of cocking her head when she is sitting up and gets excited about the outside (those big ears of hers just make her look so cute). Lila loves her toys and. She is a VERY sweet girl and just loves attention of any kind – belly rubs, back rubs, head strokes, talking to her – she’ll take it all. 

She is definitely a ball of energy outside when her curiosity button goes off, but she’ll have to wait until she fully heals to express those feelings. She is kept on a short leash so as to temper her enthusiasm while healing. In the house she can be quite relaxed, just sleeping in her crate or looking outside, and is definitely housebroken. She has the cutest whine when she needs to goShe has met the resident cat a few times and other than a couple of sniffs doesn’t appear interested. Lila is pretty obedient and knows most of the commands. While she can use a few pounds added on, she is quite svelte and has a wonderful black coat. In short, Lila is a delightful little thing with a big heart, a loving disposition, playful nature, well-behaved puppy.

He is good with other dogs, weighs 50lbs. and is approved for children aged 10 and up. Magpie is a happy young guy with lots of energy.   He would prefer an owner that will give him lots of exercise and stimulation.

Update from Magpie's foster family 3/27/2014

Magpie is starting to settle in nicely at his foster's. He gets along well with the other dogs and behaves very nicely around the humans. While he likes the dogs, he isn't too fond of the resident horses and cat, so no cats or horses for him for now!  He is working on not counter surfing or jumping, but he's already made lots of progress! He is also gaining weight and his curves are rounding nicely. He is starting to look like the happy, healthy pup he is.  Magpie is such a cutie pie! He is very curious and has a lot of energy. He is very well crate trained, has not had an accident or any complaints. He just goes to sleep until it is time to come out and play. He is eager to please and a quick learner. He is getting better on the leash every time you walk him and he has quickly picked up that doors do not open unless he is sitting. He loves to be petted and give kisses. He will win someone over very quickly, not just because of his good looks!

Max #2 (#140270)

Max is a 9 year old neutered fox red male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  He gets along well with other dogs and cats, and is approved for kids aged 10 and up.  He weighs 69 lbs.  Max has a sweet personality, a zest for life, and terrific dog manners! He is a happy go lucky boy who doesn't act his age. He loves to run around outside, play with toys and other dogs.  He knows basic commands, but will pull a little on leash when he's excited.  Max is a spunky, sweet, happy guy!

Update from Max's foster family - 4/15/2014

Max loves his humans and his doggy brother (who still hasn’t really returned the love). When he sees you coming, he wags his tail and butt. He smiles when he’s happy (which is all the time), and he licks the other dog all over the place. If you sit on the floor with him, he gets so wiggly and excited. Max is not crated anymore, and he does fine with free roam in the house. He’s not a big fan of the stairs though, so he generally stays on the main level. Max sleeps through the night with no problems, and doesn’t mind sleeping in late either. He does enjoy his daytime naps too. When he’s tired, he quietly excuses himself and finds the sunniest and/or softest place to sleep. Max loves feeding time and does the most joyous dance while he waits patiently for his bowl to be filled and put down. He’s a fast eater but shows absolutely no food aggression and takes treats gently. Max is quiet, but he has an incredibly deep bark that sounds like a 300 lb. lion!

Maya (#110403)

Maya is a 3 year old spayed black female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  She gets along with other dogs and cats and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. She weighs 64 lbs.  Maya is a bundle of energy! She is very fit and strong! She loves to walk and swim and she loves to chase the ball. She knows sit, down and come - although the "come" is not solid.  She pulls some so an EZ walk harness is recommended. She's good with other dogs but wants to be the center of attention in the home, so submissive males are her best match. She loves her crate, and gets yummy frozen kongs when she goes in. She is a strong chewer - antlers and nylabones work well for her. She is good at finding items that have not been put away and will treat them as toys, so don't leave stuff on the counters or coffee tables. 

Update from Maya - 4/2/2014

My name is Maya and I am looking for a forever home! I need to go to a forever family that is very active and will include me in all their activities. I have LOTS of energy and need to exercise in the morning and evening to keep myself settled the rest of the time! After I exercise I love to curl up for a nice long nap. I love my foster brothers but would be happiest if I was in a family where I was the only dog so I could have all the attention. Retrieving balls of all sizes is one of my favorite things to do. And of course running around the yard is cool too. I am good walking on a leash, I love to go for a car ride, and when I am tired I love to cuddle! I know my commands but do need a forever family that will have patience with me - I get excited sometimes and forget to listen! If you are looking for an active, beautiful Lab that loves to exercise you should consider me!!

Moose (#140281)

Moose is a 3 year old chocolate neutered male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  He gets along well with other dogs and must go to a home with another dog and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. He weighs 90 lbs and and needs to gain a few. Moose is a shy boy who needs time to warm up to people and get used to new situations. He needs to go to a home with another dog and a fenced backyard. 

Update from Moose's foster family - 4/16/14 

It's such a pleasure to watch a timid dog grow more confident and Moose is no exception. He's getting more and more comfortable with the house routine and is starting to enjoy some of the comforts we offer like a dog bed! Until today he preferred the hard floor or a mat but out of the blue he marched over to the dog bed, circled, groaned and lay down for a snooze. He's also getting comfortable with the crate and is choosing to hang out in there on his own.  We're pack walking with the two resident dogs which is quite a sight as they like to go go go and he's still moving a bit tentatively but we can do a full mile in about 40 minutes and he's spending more time walking by my side or sniffing around for good smells. He still stops sometimes but cheeze-wiz in a tube gets him back on the road. Sometimes we have to just come put our head into foster mom for some comfort and reassurance before we start investigating again. 

Some labs lean...Moose MELDS....it starts with the head in the lap then he turns for a side rub and the slide begins but he just leans harder and harder. A scratch on the butt is a favorite thing.

She loves to lay on her dog bed and be near her family.  She is good on leash and will benefit from  having short walks to help her continue to lose weight.  Peaches greets every dog, big and small, with a wagging tail.  She is very affectionate and loves to be with you. Peaches is looking for a home with mostly carpeted floors or area rugs and runners as she doesn't like wood or tile surfaces.

Update from Peaches' foster family - 4/2/2014

You might think that at age 9 Peaches might be a bit set in her ways. Nope! She has settled into her foster’s routine without so much as a sigh. Carrots? She had probably never had seen them, wasn't too sure she liked the way they felt in her mouth but was willing to try and now she loves them. Green beans? Didn't have to even try them first, she loves them. Short walks to sniff at all the fun things in her new neighborhood, got that. She is even working on that wood floor aversion. She does still like rugs better but is such a happy girl and wants to be with you that with some shifting of furniture she can do that too.

Petie loves to go for car rides and will watch you carefully to make sure you don't get lost.  He knows sit and down, and walks well with an easy walk harness.  Petie is used to having someone home with him more than not, so he would appreciate a family that isn't gone for a long work day. He is a country boy at heart, and would prefer a more rural environment to the big city life.

Update from Petie's foster family - 4/5/2014

Petie went for a fabulous couple mile long fast paced walk with his foster and LOVED it! Petie is the perfect spring (or anytime!) walking partner to get back out there and enjoy the weather! He walks fabulously on lead and he is at the heel the whole time, he easily adjusts to whatever pace his foster walks. To top it all off he is total a cuddle bug. Come meet Petie today!

Update from Sally's foster family Apr 14, 2014:

Sally enjoys hanging out in the yard, watching and listening to the birds and generally enjoying nature while her foster does her gardening. Sally is hoping for a home with a quiet fenced yard, preferably in the country, where she can play. She is a moderate energy gal, and loves to retrieve (she gets so excited!). She is quiet in the house, loves to ride in cars, and usually comes when called. Her house manners are good, she sleeps quietly in the crate at night but has the run of the house when her fosters are out. Occasionally she likes to "rearrange" some things but she never chews inappropriately. Most of all Sally loves to spend time with her humans and will really thrive in a home with a patient family willing to provide her with love, structure and continued training.

Scooby is a 2 year old chocolate neutered male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  Scooby is good with other dogs, weighs 90lbs (and needs to lose about 5-7) and is approved for children aged 10 and up.  He would love to have a large fenced in yard to play and run in. Scooby would prefer not to live in an apartment.  He will need some formal training and someone who wants to exercise with him. 

Update from Scooby's foster family - 3/27/2014

Scooby is a big, happy boy, who enjoys walks, retrieving balls, chasing his foster sister, being chased by his foster brother, chewing on bones and sticks, receiving vigorous rubs, and snuggling with his fosters on the sofa in the evenings. Although he has puppy exuberance, Scooby is a well-behaved typical lab. When he gets excited (e.g., dinnertime, waiting for the ball to be thrown), he jumps straight up with all four paws off the ground. He is quickly learning the benefits of sitting before being fed, receiving treats, or having the ball thrown. We have not been crating Scooby at night. (He doesn't really care for the crate.) Scooby does bark when he hears unfamiliar noises and when he first sees people he does not know. However, he quickly warms up to new people for pets and ear rubs. Scooby walks well and is a good running partner with the EZ-harness. He can get a little distracted but the EZ-harness works wonders. Scooby is snuggle bug and enjoys sleeping with people on the sofa. However, due to his size, he does have a habit of falling off the sofa when he rolls over.

Shaw would prefer not to live in an apartment/condo, or big city environment. 

Update from Shaw's foster family - 3/24/2014

Shaw is a dream. He's incredibly handsome and very well behaved. He is strong, but does well with an Easy Walk harness. He rode perfectly and quiet the whole way home. Once here he met his foster's dogs individually and was great and then was quickly let off lead to enjoy and explore the yard. He does seem to prefer calmer, more mature dogs, so maybe no spring chickens for Shaw. He has good house manners and has made himself at home on the sofa.  Shaw is a good ol' country boy. He's easy going, likes to hang with you and get attention. He hasn't quite figured out retrieving, and will go over to see what you tossed with a look that says "what am I supposed to do with that?"

Skipper is a 6 year old chocolate neutered male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. He now weighs a svelte 98lbs.  Skipper underwent ACL surgery. He continues to build muscle mass on that leg.

Update from Skippers foster family - 4/8/2014

Skipper loves hanging out with his foster. After some rehab, his gait is much stronger, and he walks using all 4 legs. Skipper loves going for a walk and gets excited when he sees his leash. He is 100% house trained and loves laying on the couch. He has great house manners and will let his foster know that he needs to go out with a quick bark. Skipper found the toy basket the other night and started taking them out, but didn't go crazy with them. He gets along with other dogs in the house but would be happy to soak up the attention by himself too. Skipper is looking for a quieter house with someone that would like to go for walks and give love. He can still be sensitive about his leg, but will fold himself almost in half to get some love.

Update from Sugar's foster family - 3/23/2014

Sugar is a  a delight. She loves her time playing in the backyard or heading out for a walk or a relaxed pace run. She is just as happy inside lying at her foster's feet under the table or sitting in the sun looking out the window. She enjoys her stuffed shark and squeaky ball inside and either a Frisbee or tennis ball outside. She enjoys sleeping with the foster's older children and has gotten used to their schedule. She has great manners but does get very excited when she meets other dogs, so she needs slow and proper introductions. She would be ideal in a family as the only dog, or would do well living with a submissive male. Sugar knows basic commands - sit, down, paw, side, wait, come - but she has trouble remembering them if there is distraction. She is a happy and sweet dog, loved by everyone.

Unix is a 5 year old neutered yellow male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. He weighs 60 lbs. 

Update from Unix's foster family - 11/16/2013

Unix is gaining confidence in his foster home! He is starting to go down a flight of stairs with the encouragement of treats on every other stair. It is easy to redirect him when he becomes mouthy by putting one of his toys in his mouth. Unix enjoys going for long walks with his foster family. He walks okay on leash after a few minutes but walks best with an Easy Walk harness. Unix has a heart condition, he needs his exercise to be leash walks only, he's on a low dose of aspirin, and needs to avoid salty snacks. He is a true sweetheart and loves other dogs and LOVES people. He is very playful. He knows sit and shake and seems extremely happy to be here. We do not leave him alone (even with his fur brother and sisters) frequently, but he does well in the crate for short periods and often falls sound asleep. 

Unix loves to follow his humans around. He would do well with a family that is frequently home and who does not have to leave him in a crate for long periods of time. He plays so well with other dogs and enjoys kissing them all over, but he doesn't need the company of another dog to make him happy. He loves his food, so it's best to not leave food out on the counters or to feed him close to other dogs. He is very attentive and listens and learns well. He continues to win over hearts and minds with his kisses and love.

Seniors make for easy living! Victor is available for a reduced adoption fee of $100, that's more than 50% off the normal adoption fee!

Update from Victor's foster 4/2/2014:

Victor is a very sweet, gentle, trusting and loving dog who enjoys attention, (ear scratches, belly rubs, etc.) He constantly follows me from room to room and does not settle down until I do, and then he rests contentedly at my feet. . His is not insistent in his desire for attention. He is very curious and likes to stick his nose in and investigate what you are doing, like "can I help".  Victor loves to ride in the car. Leave the door open accidentally and he is in. Then it is challenge to get him out. When we return from a ride it's like "lets go again". 

Victor responds, with some hesitation, to commands to "sit" and "rest". I do not believe he really hears these voice commands and responds primarily to the hand directions or touching.  He walks slowly and calmly on a leash and is learning to walk on the leaders left side.  He is starting to get around better on the few stairs to the yard too but would still be best in a home without a lot of stairs. Victor is a great, calm gentle companion that wants nothing more than a head scratch and a belly rub!
