Bo is a great, easy-going dog who likes everyone he meets. He knows and obeys all his commands, and is good on a lead. Bo even rides well in the car. Bo loves to get belly and ear rubs. He is looking for a good home where he can be a super-companion!
Update from Bo's foster family - 7/20/2014
Bo is a pretty mellow, go with the flow kinda guy who is very friendly, has spurts of energy, and settles easily wherever he is. He really enjoys human interaction so might do best in a house where someone is home more than not. He is not a clingy dog, but does like to hang out around his humans and/or canine housemates; especially likes it when you talk to him. He will sit and wag his tail at you to keep up his end of the conversation. He is great with other dogs and kids and likes to stop and let one of the neighborhood cats rub all over him when we see him out on our walks. He's discovered the squeaky toys and plays with them several times a day; may bring me one for a short game of tug of war, or a ball for a quick toss or two (not to far and doesn't play too long). Bo enjoys walks a few times a day and hanging on the front porch at night to watch (and visit) the kids that might be out. Has done well with any other dogs he's met in the neighborhood or at the beach. He does swim a few laps in the pool, but really seems to prefer to hang out on the second step and cool off up to his belly - doesn't like to get his ears wet. Ride is a magic word (as is dinner), and he would love to go on errands with you in the car; rides easily. Bo is fully house trained and can be left alone without any worries, hasn't gotten on any furniture, and knows all his commands, go both on and off leash. Loves to get belly rubs and ear/neck rubs and would enjoy being the official greeter of the house. Bo is fine with stairs and is looking to be someone's companion.

Update from Bradley's foster family July 17, 2014:
Bradley is a big charming man. Bradley is a family man who actively seeks out the love and attention of the humans and the other dogs in the house. He's a big snuggler.

Coco is a 9 year old spayed chocolate female. She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative. Coco is good with other dogs, weighs 55 lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up.
Coco is a very friendly and sweet girl. She is very laid back and affectionate. Coco will need to have two teeth extracted and Lab Rescue will cover the cost if done with one of our vets.
Update from Coco's foster family Jul 5, 2014:
Cocoa is doing great! If she's not sleeping or just chilling, she is initiating gentle play with her foster brothers or seeking out her foster parents for some scratches and rubs. You know she's settled and comfortable when she lets out that Lab "groan." Cocoa has learned the "potty spot" in the yard and makes a beeline for that area every time she goes out. She loves to lay in the grass, and just goes with the flow of her foster family as if she's been here for years. Cocoa is a bit shy when meeting new people, but opens up after a few minutes. The crate continues to be a non-issue, and she probably doesn't even need it - she has disturbed nothing in the house when left alone for short periods of time.
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 and is approved for children aged 10 and up. Cody is a sweet and gentle soul. He is a shy guy and will need a patient family to give him time to come out of his shell. 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 Jul 7, 2014:
Cody is at the beach this week. It took him a few days to adjust to the new surroundings, so he will need patience from his new family. It's been a couple of days now and Cody has finally settled in. He leads the way across the sand to the dog walk area. He bounds up and down the stairs. He enjoys lounging on the beach with his nose in the wind. He greets the neighbors with a smile and a wag. He's eating well and using his winning smile to try to get everyone to share their pizza with him. He still prefers to be close to his human. He has a lot of love and devotion to give to his adoptive family.
Diesel is an 8 year old neutered chocolate male. He is up to date with his shots and is heartworm negative. He weighs 83 pounds, is good with dogs and approved for children 10 and up. Diesel is a happy boy! He does great with being handled and loves attention.
Update from Diesel’s foster family 7/18/2014
Diesel is the perfect combination - he likes the company of his humans but is not overwhelming - just wants to be in the same room with you. He settles on the nearest dog bed and just chills with you. 2 walks a day are plenty for him - he gets very excited when the leash come out! He likes running around the backyard with a ball - he doesn't bring it back to you but with time he likely could be taught. He knows "sit, "paw", and "up". He is not only incredibly handsome but super smart! Diesel has impeccable house manners. There has been no chewing or need for crating. He will happily bound up and down stairs with ease. He's very social. He is good on a leash and great in the car. Although they say he is 8 years... he acts and looks half of that age!! Foster Mom heard Diesel telling his Foster Brothers: "8 dog years is now the new 4!!

He's also house trained and does great on an easy walk harness. JJ is a typical, energetic puppy who is goofy and sweet.

JJ's Journal, Jul 15, 2014:
Hi everyone. I'm here at my foster home. Today, resident dog Reese and I ran around and played in the yard. Belle doesn't run so much but she was outside with us. We all got treats, too!
I've met my new foster sister, Sadie, but she wasn't all that excited to meet me. Foster Mom says it will take time but we will be playing together soon. I'm 11 months old now and much more settled since I have matured some, though I'm still rather active. Foster Mom says that I get more handsome every day and that she loves my golden eyes.
Well, I'm going to take a nap right now.

Watch More Sally on
Supervisor Sally says, "I'm earning my keep at the Lazy Lab Inn. Sometimes I have specific jobs and other times I act as supervisor. I carry my bowl back to the kitchen after I finish eating. Another job is acting as the "yard guard" and keeping the rabbits from eating my foster mom's flowers. Since I nearly got one recently, the rabbits are not coming around anymore. By far my favorite job is rousing my house-doggie-mate and friend, Greta, from the sofa when it is time to go out for the last time before we go to bed. Foster mom gives me the command "Go get Greta," and I do. Other times I just supervise and keep foster mom company. I am really a helpful dog and a fun one to have around. If you're looking for help around the house and would like some companionship I might be the girl for you."
Update from Sally's foster family Jul 5, 2014:
Sally enjoys taking leisurely walks in the woods. She likes to sniff and watch the wildlife. She is a very well behaved girl with a delightful personality. Sally is happy and relaxed at home. Her tail is always wagging! She makes all kinds of funny, endearing noises of contentment when she yawns, lays down, rolls on her back, during grooming and when she gets belly rubs. She also gives lots of kisses!
Sally is well behaved, relaxed, knows basic commands plus some "tricks", lives peacefully and respectfully with a 10 year old Lab, and meets and greets strangers on the street comfortably. She is a couch potato most of the day but if her sees her leash come out or you say "road trip" she is ready to go. She is fearful of dogs that she sees on leash but she is making progress. Sally would do best in a quiet, structured household and with a consistent routine. A home with a fenced yard an area where she can take walks without constantly seeing other dogs, would be the most comfortable spot for her. She probably would do best as an only dog. Definitely no cats. She is a sensitive, sweet girl who thrives on positive reinforcement, especially when it is accompanied by food rewards. She loves to be with her people but can be left alone for several hours at a time.
