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.

Update from Ava's foster family Jul 2, 2014:

Ava is such a wonderful, sweet, funny, comical dog and it is a wonder as to why she has not yet found her forever home. She is one of the happiest dogs ever and is super affectionate. Ava loves to cuddle and is always polite in asking for affection. Ava is very food driven and likes to help in the kitchen. She loves her car rides and looking out the window, especially when going on trips to get doggie ice cream which she enjoys at the nearby waterfront park. Ava would be an awesome addition to any home and is an easy dog to care for and love.

Benny #2 (#140555)

Benny is a 10 year old neutered chocolate 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 70 lbs. Benny has Laryngeal Paralysis, meaning he cannot wear a collar and needs to eat in an elevated food dish (that comes with him). Benny is a very friendly guy who loves to wag his happy lab tail and play fetch. Benny is a country dog and prefers not to live in an apartment/condo setting.

Update from Benny's foster family - 7/23/2014

Benny is really settling into the routine of the house. He knows when it’s time to nap away the day while his foster is at work, when it’s time to go to bed, and, most importantly, when it’s time to play in the evening! He always likes to remind his foster that he needs his playtime with a gentle bark. He lives and loves to retrieve, and he is fast and agile for his age. He's great on a leash and walks at a slow pace and always by his foster’s side. He loves meal time and is very gentle when it comes to taking treats. He was friendly and loving with his foster family within minutes of meeting them, resting his head on their laps and enjoying their attention. 
At night, he has been sleeping on his foster’s bed, and he can be a little bit of a bed hog when he sleeps across the bed. But somehow it’s all okay when he decides to paw for some attention and be silly. He enjoys his foster dog's company but does not seem to need another dog in his life.

He has been left alone in the house for short periods and has not bothered anything. Benny is not a velcro dog, but likes to be in the same room with his people or at least be able to see them. He would prefer to be with someone who is home more than not, he is low maintenance, is seeking a place to call home and would be a wonderful, faithful companion to anyone who will show him a little love.  Benny is a really sweet guy!

Bo #4 (#140484)

See Bo on Youtube

Bo is a 9 year old yellow neutered male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs and is approved for children aged 5 and up. He weighs 87 lbs. 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. Bradley loves going in and out and being in the yard, anywhere the other dogs or people go, Bradley wants to be part of it. He is an extroverted, friendly guy who wants to be with his pals, whether they have fur or not. Bradley has a huge smile. He also enjoys basketballs, footballs, and tennis balls, and he adores tummy rubs, head scratches, and nice pats. He is very active, and with his big body, his strides are gigantic!

She adores toys and will play all day if you let her. She is house trained and crate trained, and will whine when she needs to go out. She is a bit of a counter surfer so you have to be careful about leaving toys or treats within her reach. She is a big, sweet girl who loves to play.

Update from Carson's foster family 7/19/2014

Carson really loves having another young lab to play with as his foster brother! They enjoy spending hours chasing each other and their foster around in the yard. He does know basic commands but like all young dogs will benefit from a formal obedience class. Good with other dogs. NO cats as he likes to chase.

Champ is a 5 year old neutered yellow male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  Champ is good with other dogs, weighs in at 100 lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up.  Champ is a really wonderful and sweet guy.  He is laid back and wants to be held and petted as much as possible. He knows some commands and may need some leash work because he does tend to get excited. An Easy Walk harness would be good for him. 

Update from Champ's foster family 7/25/014

Champ has been an easy addition to the house. He sits for treats and is gentle taking them. He prefers to hang out with his humans and has done well being left alone up to 8 hours. He goes into nap-mode along with the other two resident dogs. He has polite manners with his canine buddies. He doesn't start arising until the other two dogs let him know it's time to get up. He enjoys being brushed -- much more than the other two dogs! Champ is wonderful with his foster's 10 yo son and has become more playful with toys. He's decided it's okay to use the harder chew toys.  Champ is one snuggly dog. He has the cutest soft brown eyes. He spontaneously wag his tail and play with the resident dominant female dog. When he gets tired or needs an out, he runs to his human "mommy" and snugs his head under my arm. Adorable! He has a hearty appetite. Champ has quickly learned the routines of the house. He is a wonderful companion and a smart dog. Overall, he's an easy guy to love and live with.

Coco (#140459)

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.

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.

They are good size dogs, playful, strong and smart Both will chase after a toy but Jaxson is one that brings it back even if he has to take it from Dallas who just gives it to him. I'm not sure who is the boss think they take turns just to confuse me.

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!!

Update from Drucker's foster family - 7/24/2014

Drucker vacationed at the beach for a couple days and had a blast! This boy is a water dog! He loved retrieving into the bay and would have done it all day if someone just kept throwing the ball. Now that we are home he quickly adjusted back to the normal routine.  
Drucker is an independent but social guy. He very much enjoys running in the yard and fetching tennis balls. He is so funny to watch when he gets distracted by passing insects or a butterfly! Sometimes he is quick enough to catch it and other times he just has a good time with the chase. Drucker has found the steps into the swimming pool and enjoys paddling out for a swim or to fetch a toy! In the evening Drucker will relax on his bed or on the sofa with his fosters as they watch tv. At bed time he is easily directed into his crate and sleeps quietly through the night. Drucker takes treats gently and loves to play with his toys. Drucker is looking for an active family, preferably with a fenced in backyard where he can burn off his puppy energy.

Update from Emmy's foster family Jul 11, 2014:

Emmy is an absolute lady. She enjoys slow short walks. 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. 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. All in all a very calm and mellow girl who mostly gives you some love and then keeps to herself.

Foster is a sweet boy who loves to play. He loves bones and enjoys walking in the woods.  He is house and crate trained, loves to swim, and gets excited to go for walks. Foster knows sit, shake, roll over, stay, crawl and lay down. 

Update from Foster's foster!  7/18/2014

Foster enjoys spending time outside with his nose to the air and ground checking out the smells. He is also investigating things during walks in the woods. He likes getting brushed and loves playing with his Nylabone. He also likes to go swimming. He can play ball but he really likes keep away much better. He met the cat who swatted him and then ran off. After that he has kept his distance. Foster prefers a calmer and quieter environment. 
 
Foster has done a great job of settling in and learning the routine. He gets a walk in the morning and some playtime, and then he's fine not being crated during the day and can be trusted. He likes to sleep wherever the other dog is, check on his humans, and then he will go back and do whatever he was doing. He has toys spread all over the house, prefers those squeaky toys, likes  plastic water bottles and sometimes a nylabone. He has moderate energy but not too high. He knows what it means to “chill." He loves splashing around in the pool, but does not like being bathed. He likes to tease the other dog or will nibble at her ear and let her know it is “playtime”. Most of the time he is happy just to chase a ball and jump into the pool. He sits nicely for treats and at mealtimes. He is learning the down command.

Foster is a sweet heart who is a polite assistant in the kitchen and has a special assignment he has taken on to make sure that his foster is loading the dishwasher properly. He likes to follow his foster but will leave enough space to allow them both to walk. Foster would love to get up in bed with his foster, but he is willing to quietly sleep in his crate by the bed all night long and will also go in for naps on his own. He lets his fosters know when he has to go outside by going to the door and talking to us. He enjoys being around his foster brothers on walks and loves it when they go just a little bit farther than before. He is easy on the leash and pulls only when he thinks he might get to explore the backyard woods, so trail hiking would probably be a very enjoyable adventure to enjoy with his family.

Henry (#140560)

 Watch Henry at play


Meet Henry, a small eight month old neutered black male who's just learning about toys and how to follow simple commands. He does some retrieving, knows "sit" and "come," and is ready to learn more. Approved for families with children 7 and up, Henry is also heartworm negative and up to date on vaccines. He enjoys playing with other dogs, but is unknown with cats. Henry weighs 43 pounds, is crate trained, and rides well in the car. Due to his youthful exuberance, he pulls a little on the lead, and would do well with an easy walk harness as well as a home with plenty of room for a young pup to grow and play.

Update from Henry's foster family 7/23/2014

Henry is sweet, affectionate, likes to give kisses, and has a great lab lean. He enjoys running around outside but settles nicely inside the house. He has good house manners and doesn't touch things that he shouldn't touch. He has quickly learned to play with toys and loves to wrestle with his foster brother. He isn't interested in fetch but loves to steal whatever his foster brother is fetching. He is crate trained but will do best if not left in the crate for long periods of time. He pulls a little at first but settles in nicely on walks. He is a country boy and the sounds of suburbia at night can be a little scary which causes him to freeze, so his new owner needs to help build his confidence, and city living may not suit him. He does bark when you walk in the door, but it is more of a "hey you're home, I'm so excited to see you" kind of bark. He sleeps quietly on his foster mother's bed and sleeps through the night on most nights. He met a cat at the vet's office and didn't react when it rubbed against him. He is 98% potty trained and already expects affection and celebrations after going potty outside. He is smart, a quick learner, willing to please and loves treats. 

  

        

   

Hunk (#140562)


Hunk is an 18-month old yellow neutered male who's a very happy boy, from smiling face to wagging tail. He is up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and approved for kids ages 10 and up. Hunk does well with other dogs but has no history with cats. This handsome young guy loves interacting with people and can't wait to meet his forever family.

Update from Hunk's foster family - 7/23/2014

Hunk is such a social boy! He loves going to the dog park and meeting other dogs, young and old. He also rides very well in the car. He doesn't seem that interested in toys--he's totally other dog/human focused! Hunk knows several commands already and is great at sit and giving his paw. He is a strong walker so would do better with an EZWalk harness. He thinks nothing's better than having his ear scratched while he sits between your legs. We know the next best thing though is getting his forever home! 
 


   

Jake (#140519)

Jake is a 4 year old neutered yellow male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heart worm negative.  He is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up.  He weighs 80 lbs. He must be adopted with another dog. Jake loves attention  and is very strong on the leash.  He is a happy boy with a great disposition and takes treats like a gentleman. Jake knows sit, is really smart, and wants to please. He truly loves attention!

Update from Jake's foster family 7/25/2014

Jake's doing well. He's happy and has a new best friend at the dog park. He likes to play but isn't a fan of really rambunctious dogs or puppies. He loves people and would be a lap dog if you'll let him.  He enjoys the company of the resident dogs in their crates right next to him, so a canine companion is definitely a must. He's a sweetheart, is very submissive to other dogs and just the right amount of bossy with people. He likes to chew and picks appropriate items 90% of the time. He rarely barks. He would probably be okay with a dog savvy cat - the ones at petco all hissed and swatted at him and he ran away. He is an exuberant greeter, especially when meeting new men. He has a soft mouth and is eager to learn. Jake loves to sniff and is food motivated so would probably do very well at nose-work. We are working on improving his leash walking. He's a great dog!

Jasper is a 6 year old neutered yellow male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.  He gets along well with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 4 and up.  He weighs 83 lbs and should lose about 10 lbs. Jasper is very friendly and loves to be petted - he'll even crawl on your lap for some love. He is a country boy who is looking for an adopter who wants an energetic, loving lab who wants to play!

Update from Jasper's foster family - 6/25/2014

Jasper has acclimated nicely. He hangs out with me during the day and seems perfectly content staying downstairs alone at night. Yesterday he played hide and seek with my son for about 10 min. It was super cute watching them take turns hiding and finding. Jasper knows sit, down, up, stay, even heel!   He'll even give high five with both paws for treats.He is quickly figuring out what the other commands mean (gentle, wait, and 'go-on' --aka release-- etc). He likely knew these before but had a different vocabulary in the past, but he definitely knows the concepts. He is walking well with a martingale and leash. He is good with the resident small dog and she likes him, too.  He loves to retrieve and likes swimming in the ocean.

She is your friend as soon as she meets you, and is an easy dog who loves attention.  Jetta gives kisses and will nudge you when you stop petting her. She knows sit, lay down, wait, and stand up.  She is okay on lead and walks best with an Easy Walk harness. Jetta has hypothyroidism, which is easily controlled with relatively low cost medicine. Her extra weight is likely due to this condition and will get better as it gets under control. 

Update from Jetta's foster family - 7/15/2014

Jetta is so sweet and has settled very nicely with her foster. Gets along great with the two resident labs and plays with our younger one very nicely. She loves to be petted, but not a pest about it. She loves to go for walks and is very good on lead. The other day she met a rabbit on one of our walks and was very interested but didn't try and chase it. Jetta has had the run of the house hasn't been crated since she got there. Has good manners, doesn't beg or countersurf. One of the easiest fosters we have had.  Jetta is used to being with a family and would like a forever family to come get her and take her home.

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. 
Love, 
JJ

Update from Kazar's foster family 7/17/2014

Kazar went to Pets Mart with his foster and was excellent, he thought it was Doggy Disneyland! He had to meet and greet everyone with a happy tail, including several dogs. He was very curious about the little guinea pigs in the store! He is a very playful boy and was quick to adjust to his foster home. He has some knowledge of commands. He will sit for a treat and gives you his paw without asking. He absolutely loves to chase tennis balls (shocker!)

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

Update from LaBelle's foster family - 6/3/2014

I don't understand why Belle isn't in her forever home. Surely there is someone that wants a good companion to accompany on walks, rides and to be by your side when you read or watch TV. Belle is a very laid back easy dog and is a great foster. She is affectionate but not an in your face dog Belle sight is not great, but it doesn't stop her from doing anything.  She likes to go for rides and enjoys the treats from Starbucks when we stop for some coffee. At night when I am watching TV I sit on the floor and she comes over and lays next to me for some petting. If we are busy, she will either lay near us or she will go and lay in her crate in our office. 

She is a very quiet dog, rarely barks. She goes to the door when the doorbell rings, but she does not bark even though our dog does. When I am in the pantry filling her bowl she will give me a hurry up I am hungry bark. She does not beg at the table, lays nearby and watches. She is not a counter surfer, but she is tall and sniffs out the edges. When we are going for a walk she waits patiently at the door while you put her leash on, until you tell her it is OK to go out. Walks nicely on lead and seems interested in other dogs that we have meet on walks.  She is completely house and crate trained and stands at the door if she needs to go out. She does not get on the furniture and sleeps on a dog bed upstairs with us at night. We crate her when we are both gone for a long time, but otherwise she has free roam of the house. She was underweight when we started fostering her and is gaining weight nicely. 

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.  LaBelle is a super gal.

Update from Layla's foster family 7/23/2014

Layla is still progressing and having great fun! She is doing great with new people and situations and really coming into her own and becoming brave. She is great in the house and does not need to be crated. She gets along well with all the resident dogs and has learned to love swimming too! She meets lots of new dogs and people daily at the river. She is a great petite size and just and awesome little gal! She LOVES toys and balls!! 

Layla is an absolute joy to come home to as she gets so excited to see me. She's very affectionate and is quite funny. She has developed a new morning routine. After she eats she comes bounding upstairs and jumps into the bed to give me morning kisses. She is a very sweet and seems to have adjusted about as well as any fosters we have had. She was easily housetrained and will sleep through the night from about 7:00 pm until 6:00 am. She enjoys her fun but is quite lazy at home after it is all done. I picked up some "babies" today and she does enjoy carrying them around. She shows no interest in our things.

She would love to find a family that will give her the love, attention and exercise that she deserves.  Molly would benefit from attending a formal training class since she has never had any.  She would prefer not to live in a busy neighborhood, in a city environment, or apartment. 

Update from Molly's foster family - 7/16/2014

Molly loves people, especially kids. We had friends over yesterday and they had a 12 year old girl who she followed around everywhere. She needs slow introduction to other dogs. She and the resident female are playing, but she wants and takes her toys from her. She needs training but seems to be a quick learner. She also loves the fish pond. She loves to play fetch and brings the ball back to you. Molly is a very energetic young lady. She will chase anything that moves, butterflies, birds, balls, bunnies. Molly is very responsive to praise and touch. Of course she is highly food motivated but gets a little too excited when treats are present. Molly just wants to be #1 in your life and begs for playtime and attention. Molly likes other dogs but needs to be introduced carefully. No nose to nose introductions, and she should meet in a low stress, neutral place. We have followed the guidelines on the Lab Rescue Website for introducing her to new dogs, and we've been successful. After getting to know our dog, she followed her into the pond and now loves to cool off by throwing a ball into it and going in and fetching it.

Update from foster family 6/30/14 - 
Nemo and Harley are settling in just fine. They both figured out the doggie door very easily and are housebroken. They keep each other in sight at all times and some close to share kisses often, but are getting along great with the resident dogs as well. Nemo enjoys laying on the hearth, Harley chooses to be at someone feet even if it means being in a pile with all the others. Nemo is very timid and unsure of herself and needs to gain some confidence. She is better when Harley is around and is more timid around males it seems so we will continue working with that. She hid behind furniture at first but is not doing that anymore. She is definitely unsure of new situations and we will be working on some confidence building. Harley on the other hand is a social butterfly, always right in the middle of everything. More on these guys individually as we get to know them better!

He'll even sleep in as long as you will!  He knows the commands sit, lay down, and roll over.  He is very strong and will be excited to see people and dogs on his walks - he would make an excellent jogging partner!

Update from Rex's foster family 7/18/2014

Rex is a happy boy, always chipper and looking to play. He never met a stick he didn't like. When you get home he is there to great you with his kong in his mouth and a full body wag. We haven't been crating him and there has been no mayhem upon our arrival, so that's a good thing. He rides in the car like a champ and walks like a dream. He hardly ever pulls and when he does a quick "heel, boy" seems to solve it. He is happy to meet new friends human and canine and wags his tail and greets them like long lost pals, lots of kisses and lab leans. He is very calm and enjoys just hanging out with his people be it in the yard or outside. He likes a good game of fetch but settles when you quit. He also went swimming and did fantastic, as long as you had a stick to throw he wanted to keep swimming. He met a few new friends and actually treated them with wagging and kisses. He also got to go for some ice cream and sat in the outdoor seating area just as calm as could be, the picture of the ideal dog. He is a great boy who will make some lucky person a great dog.

Sally is a 6 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, but not cats, and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. She weighs 67 lbs and should lose about 10 lbs. Sally knows sit and shake, and loves to be with you. She is active and loves to retrieve, and gives kisses! She enjoys walks and playing outside, but does have a high prey drive.

 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.

Shadow is a gorgeous boy with a soft coat, and a gentle boy with a wonderful disposition.  Shadow knows basic commands and walks pretty well on leash.  He enjoys playing with squeaky toys. Shadow is epileptic and takes medicine twice a day - on this medicine  he hasn't had any any seizures since he's been with Lab Rescue. 

Update from Shadow's foster family 7/19/2014

Shadow is very well behaved and has settled nicely into his foster pack. He is aptly named because he is a shadow and is always near his fosters. Shadow has a wonderful soft coat that you just have to snuggle. His eyes are very expressive, especially when he gives you the “look.” There are some house rules that Shadow believes don’t apply to him. In particular, the dogs are not allowed in the living room or the upstairs bedrooms. At night, we would leave him with the other dogs behind the baby gates. In the morning, we would find him sleeping next to our bed. Shadow is now the first dog that we allow to sleep in our bedroom every night. When his fosters arrive home, Shadow greets them from on the other side of the baby gate. He has decided the living room sofa is his day bed. As noted above, Shadow is on medication for seizures. With his new medication, he has not had a seizure in nearly two months. We coat his pills with peanut butter, which he gentle takes from our fingers. Afterwards, he will lick our fingers clean. He is such a character!

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 7/24/2014

Sheila is settling in and finding her place…which appears to be fetching and stealing tennis balls and snuggling when she can't possibly fetch anymore. She is a serious bundle of energy and will fetch a tennis ball even if she's exhausted (or you think she is). She is getting better about giving you the tennis ball, as long as you don't try to take it from her - then it's a game. She's been sleeping in bed with her foster and other dogs and sleeps soundly through the night until the alarm goes off without any problem. Sheila has taken a few things that aren't hers (the remote, and a stray flip flop) but gave them back immediately when asked, and hasn't tried to take them again. Overall she's doing really great, and she continues to get more and more confident around new things and new people.  

She's great with other dogs and follows their lead. She's incredibly toy motivated and completely found her happy place when she discovered the yard was covered in tennis balls. She wants to snuggle, and she's learning to trust. Sheila will definitely need an adopter who is willing to go slow with her and give her time to explore new things in her own time. She crates well for a smelly treat. Once she has healed from her spay surgery, she will definitely enjoy running, so a nice backyard with an unending supply of tennis balls would probably be her heaven.

Update from Shelby's foster family 7/23/2014

Shelby is a sweetie!!! She is a wonderful girl with great house manners. She is housebroken and respectful of boundaries. She is getting along wonderfully with the resident dogs. She enjoys spending time in the back yard or curling up on the couch. Shelby LOVES belly rubs and hugs. She's a petite little girl who sits very well. And she anxiously awaits the next command, or trip to the park. She has a heightened awareness if she sees squirrels, but otherwise walks well on the leash. She's also a good rider. Shelby is a pleaser - she's always paying attention to what I do. She waits patiently for me while I get ready in the morning. While I mowed the lawn last night she wandered around the yard. She's just a big-hearted, easy, low maintenance girl.

He loves to play fetch and just like a typical young lab he has a lot of energy.  He would do best with a family that will give him lots of exercise and training. 

Update from Spud's foster family - 7/22/2014

Spud is a gorgeous dog, but he needs a lot of exercise. He's good around other dogs and likes to play hard. He's a smart boy and yet he's aloof and a goofball. He loves to be outside and would love to have a big yard where he can play and run around. He is housetrained and crate trained. He pulls on the leash, so an Easy Walk harness will help. 

Spud is a total sweetheart! He is energetic and so happy. He enjoys playing with tennis balls and throwing them around for himself. He also loves walking and cuddles. He is a big goof ball and has settled right in. He has had no accidents and is actually going to the door and whining when he needs to go out to go to the bathroom. He travels wonderfully in the car and sits in the back seat and rests his head on your shoulder. He weaves on the leash a bit and pulls when he sees other dogs but not nearly as strong with the harness. He is a big klutz- it seems like he doesn’t know how big and wiggly he is. He’s been running around the house slipping on the floors and bumping into things (he doesn’t mind it at all, but it makes quite a scene). Overall he is so sweet and comes up to get scratched. He will actually lean into you so much that he falls over and then proceeds to roll on your hands while you scratch him. He seems interested in cats, birds, and squirrels, but doesn’t try and chase them- he’ll just sit and watch. Spud always has a big smile on his face and is a really special dog.

He is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up.  He weighs 44 lbs and should gain about 10 lbs.  Tico is a sweet boy in need of some direction and manners. He is a quick learner and is eager to please.  

Update from Tico's foster family 7/24/2014

Tico is an active, happy two year old boy who loves to run and play fetch. He is very food and praise motivated, and is picking up on house rules quickly. Tico has learned to sit nicely next to the dishwasher instead of licking the dirty dishes and to sit or lay next to the table when his foster humans are eating, instead of with his head in their laps. He will need a formal training program to work on his manners, but in the mean time he is learning to Sit on request. Tico is house and crate trained! Tico.  He has put on some weight and is very handsome. He is very sweet and affectionate and a stellar rider. He needs a little work on leash but is very responsive and wants to please. Tico loves other dogs and really loves to be with people - watch out for big sloppy kisses!

Update from Toby's foster family 7/15/14 -

Toby is such an easy going guy. He loves going to the store down the street for breakfast with his foster mom and foster brother. He has also been enjoying trips to the river. Most recently his foster discovered that he has a love of tomatoes as she kept finding "bites" out of her tomatoes. She thought it was some wild animal until she caught Toby in the act! Silly boy! 

Toby is like a big ole teddy bear – squishy and lovable. He has great house manners. He enjoys laying by front door watching the neighbors walk by with their dogs and kids. He enjoys our morning walks and he walks well on leash.  Many times we walk to the local store where we sit outside and have our coffee and Toby and his foster brother get treats. He is a calm and easy companion who likes to be near you.  But, he also has a very playful side. He loves, loves, loves his bones and will spend hours eating marrow bones.   He is currently being fostered with two other dogs (male and female) and the chemistry is wonderful. Toby is housebroken and knows how to use the dog door. He has full reign of the house at all times. He responds well to treats which indicates he is trainable even at the age of 10. Toby recently had his vet check up and vaccine update.  The Dr. says he is in AWESOME shape for his age! Total health check great, no signs of slowing down anytime soon!! Yippee! Now he just needs a forever family to play with!

These boys are calm and great with people.  If you sit down they will get on either side of you and lean into you to make sure they get petted. Not sure who the leader and who is the follower as they seem to take turns. Benny retrieves more than Winston does.
