Our Labs Available for Adoption

The labs listed on this page are always changing. Every day labs are adopted and new labs join us while they wait for their new forever home. If you are interested in adopting one of these labs from Lab Rescue, please fill out our adoption application and send it to us online (or by fax or mail). Lab Rescue of the LRCP asks that you read about the entire adoption process before submitting your application. We often receive questions about why so few labs are approved for young children. You can read about how we make that determination in the adoption process section of the website. Please note that the website is not the most up to date source of information. Some labs may have been adopted before the website shows them as adopted. 

Lab Rescue LRCP rescues and places dogs in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and northeast North Carolina (30 miles east of I-95 and north of the Pamlico Sound). Adopters must travel to Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC, with their family – human and canine – to meet the dog they want to adopt.

If you live outside of the Lab Rescue service area and would like to adopt, please review the list of rescues elsewhere in the country, available at www.thelabradorclub.com, do a  Google search on Lab Rescue and your location, or search on Petfinder.com or Adoptapet.com to find a rescue who places Labs near you.

He weighs 80 lbs. Bolin is a handsome and active guy looking for a family that will give him the time, attention, and exercise that he needs.

Update from Bolin's foster family - Apr 29, 2015:

Bolin is doing well with the routine. He gets along with the resident dogs, but he loves to be the center of attention. He's a love sponge just like the resident dogs. His manners are improving, although he will try to steal food off the counter if given the chance. He's slowly getting better on the leash, it's a work in progress. He's a beautiful boy who is improving and learning manners. He's comfortable in the foster home but is on the hunt for his forever family!

He is doing well in his crate and is house trained. He still needs to build some confidence but he is doing better every day. He is very sweet and has learned the lab lean really quick!

Buddy is very handsome, distinguished 10-year old guy who is very laid back & easy going.

From Buddy himself -  March 16, 2015:

I love to be near my people but you won't be falling over me. I'm house trained, I know commands such as sit, stay, paw & speak ( foster mom makes me do this when asking for a treat), I also do this little Elvis lip thing that makes foster mom laugh so much. Foster Mom loves the fact that as soon as we come inside, I know to sit so she can wipe my paws. I sleep through the night in foster moms room in my nice comfy dog bed.  The things I am looking for in my forever family are:  (1) a soft place to lay my head like a nice dog bed; (2) belly rubs; (3) good meals & treats ; and (4) I would like three 20-minute walks a day, but am completely happy with two.

Charlie is approved for children aged 7 and up and is good with other dogs. He weighs 55 lbs and needs to gain some. Charlie does well sleeping in the crate and loves to go for walks. He is good with other dogs, but has a preference for female dogs. Charlie is a laid back guy who loves playing with toys and balls. He is looking for a family to spoil him and take great care of him so he can get back into his fighting form!

Update from Charlie's foster family - March 20, 2015:

(Good Time) Charlie is an 8 year old chocolate lad who gets along fine with other dogs and cats and has been with children 7 and above. He loves to fetch the tennis ball, run and lounge. He crates well and doesn’t chew anything other than his toys. He still hasn’t caught on to the value of belly scratches but loves to have his face and ears scratched. Contact your AC to see if Charlie might be a good fit for you and your family! 

Mar 13, 2015:

Charlie is a very sweet and attentive guy whose personality has been unmasked with each passing day. While he still doesn’t really cuddle, he does have a pretty good lean and sits or lays very still while watching TV; Charlie definitely enjoys being with us. He is a little confused by belly scratches and attempts to wrestle on the floor, but he loves to have his face scratched and his ears rubbed; he has started to hug his FPs too, wrapping his arms around us to give love. Charlie loves to chase the tennis ball and he will ‘give it’ 9 times out of 10 now (before he would ‘give it’ about 1/20 times). He loves to follow us around and hangs out with the five resident dogs without incident, but there still isn’t much interaction among the dogs, except when he is one-on-one with Bonnie, our recent foster failure, who has gotten him to play a couple times. While his first cat test was inconclusive, he rocked his second one and his third one- although he went straight for the food and totally ignored the cat on the last one. He was kind of confused our first visit to the horses, trying to figure out what those big stinky things were, and his second visit he just stood rigid when the larger-than-life white Appaloosa played ‘stare down’ with him.

Colt (#140311)

  Watch Colt on YouTube

Colt is a 12 year old neutered chocolate male.  He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm positive but he will continue to use the monthly preventatives instead of a treatment.   Colt weighs 76 lbs and is approved for children aged 10 an up.  Colt came to Lab Rescue as a member of a bonded pair.  He has adjusted well, but must go to a home with another dog.

Update from Colt's foster family - Mar 31, 2015:

Colt has been the perfect visitor at his temporary foster home. He is a sweet boy and enjoys attention. Colt loves looking out the window. He watches the post man without a peep, but there is a pesky street sign that he warns us about daily. On a sunny day, Colt enjoys wandering the yard with his canine buddies, checking out the smells. On the cooler days, he's content to do his business and get back indoors! Colt has met the cat, and while initially fascinated by her, after a few hisses for getting too close, he's come around to realize ignoring her is the way to go. 

Update, 2/7/2014:

Life has been unfair to Colt. Last year he was surrendered by his owner because he could no longer care for Colt and his soul mate Holly. Not too long after that Holly died, leaving him again with a major adjustment. In the twilight of a labs life, these sort of things shouldn't be happening. Although this senior gentleman has adapted and is well cared for and loved by his foster family, it's not home. But, lets be brutally honest, at his age there really isn't a lot we can say to convince you he's the dog for you. Colt is 13-14 years old, has seizures, is pretty deaf, weak in the hind quarters and heartworm positive but can't be treated due to his age. He may know commands but since he can't hear them, he doesn't respond. That's pretty much what you'd expect from a guy his age. But he has a very endearing side as well. Colt is a very sweet and friendly boy that loves to give you kisses. He enjoys relaxing and is easy going. He is always ready for a walk and is a dream on lead.  He also enjoys a good ride. He is calm and affectionate and very low maintenance. He has spent a majority of his life living in a outside pen when he lived with his buddy Holly. Holly was his leader and he followed her everywhere. When she died, he attached himself to his foster sister and now follows her everywhere. Even after 8 months, he still gets up to follow foster mom when she leaves the room. So if you love velcro, you'll love Colt.

Colt is a very good boy and deserves a happy ending. Won't you open you heart and home and allow this guy the love he so deserves.

Update from Cookie's foster family May 15, 2015: 

Cookie is almost finished with the quiet time from her heartworm treatment.  She's been a trooper and is ready for her forever family.  She would love a family where someone is home more than not. Cookie thinks that scooting through the front door is something that she wants to do so her new family should be extra careful when they're leaving the house.

An update on Cyclone - Apr 3, 2015:

Cyclone is a whirlwind of activity! He’s a sweet little thing, but would certainly benefit from some training. So we’re working on a few obedience commands (he’s EXCELLENT at sit), and trying to get him to walk more easily on a leash/harness. More to come soon.

Gemma (#150351)


Gemma is a a year and a half old yellow spayed female who weighs 36 pounds but needs to gain some weight. She is heartworm negative and up to date on vaccines. This petite girl is good with other dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up. She does not like her crate but has proven herself trustworthy in the house.  Gemma is timid and requires a family with a calm lifestyle and plenty of patience. She is a country girl who will need a home in a rural or suburban area. 

Update from Gemma's foster family - May 18, 2015:

Gemma is a very timid country girl. She is starting to come out of her shell. She definitely is not a crate girl since she has broken out of two different types in her foster home. She has not been destructive in the house when she escaped. Both times she was found sleeping on one of the dog beds in the bedroom where the resident dogs were. Gemma came to us scared and skinny and is a bit protective of her food with dogs right now. She needs to be either fed separately or in a crate if another dog is present, however she can receive treats with the group. Hopefully, the need to protect her food will diminish over time as she learns that food is consistent.She is totally fine with her food with people. The foster can have her hand in the bowl moving the food around while Gemma is eating. Gemma gets along great with the resident dogs. We are working on house training. Gemma has had a couple accidents in the house but that is to be expected. This is due partly to the fact that Gemma has her days and nights mixed up. Once she gets into the normal routine, all will be well, we are sure :-) 

Gemma is learning to accept human affection and will now jump up on the sofa, a favorite spot, to get petted. She is also exploring all the dog beds but seems to prefer the more plush orthopedic beds. 

Gemma is a beautiful petite girl that needs a family that will be very patient with her while she continues to learn to trust and not be scared. She needs a family that is on the calmer side and will not take her into high stress situations (ie, crowds, a lot of activity of strangers coming into the house, sporting events, pet shops) until she's ready. Once she starts trusting you, she will gently take treats from your hand. Gemma seems to gain some confidence from the resident dogs but she does like her "alone" time.

Hachiko (#150032)

At ten years old, Hachiko is an older gentleman with lots of love to give. He's heartworm negative, up-to-date on vaccines and good with other dogs and with cats, too!  Hachiko is approved for kids ages 10 and up. He is gaining confidence in foster care and enjoys being petted and living indoors. He weighs 52 pounds but could stand to gain 8-12 more.

Update from Hachiko's foster family 2/28/2015

Hachiko has settled in, has become one of the pack in his foster home and seems to be enjoying himself there. He has moved out of the bathroom and onto his own bed. He is eating regularly 3x a day and gaining weight nicely but still has some to go. His stability when walking is constantly improving and is a long way from where he was. He can be unstable on his feet at times. Because of this, a home without a large amount of stairs would be best. He gets along with all of the dogs in his foster home and has no issues with any of them. Today he attempted to chase the cat but because he isn't very fast, he was not able to catch him. He eagerly runs outside to do his business. A home where someone is not gone all day long would be best for Hachiko. He likes treats and continues to work to leave his previous life behind him. He is wagging his tail more and he seems generally happy to see his foster family.

This bonded pair of six year-old littermates is heartworm negative and current on vaaccines. Lily is petite at 48 pounds, while Jack tips the scales at 81. This affectionate pair is good with children of all ages and with cats. They get along with other dogs on a case by case basis. When separated, one waits by the window for the other's return and they "kiss" after being separated for even a short time. They enjoy a good nap, nosing around the yard, and lying in the sun--as well as chasing squirrels. Among their talents is slipping out under the fence, so they will need a secure yard in their forever home.

From Mariner's Foster Family - May 8, 2015:

I have been with my foster family for 7 weeks now and guess what I have now - a SMILE! I haven't had one of those in a long time. In these 7 weeks I have learned: the people hands are nice for petting, the food comes in bowls, the stairs aren't scary, it is ok to go outside because I will get to come back in when I ask and tile and hardwood won't make me wipe out if I don't try to walk on my toenails! I am a fan of treats and am very food motivated. I learned sit in just two days (I am still working on it but I know what I am supposed to do now!). I don't bark or get on the furniture (foster mom can't convince me to even try the dog beds), countersurf or beg (well does asking for Doritos count as begging??). I am still shy on a leash so I need a fenced yard and I can get lonely so I would like another low-key dog to keep me company. I am completely housetrained too! Foster mom says that I am 8 but I don't feel like it! I start my 30-days of laying low after my heart worm treatment next week but foster mom says that won't be an issue because that is my normal state! Call your AC today - so you can come fall in love too!

Update from Marley's foster family - May 12, 2015:

Marley is as sweet as ever. He is still very cuddly and a big lover. He is a calm and gentle boy with moments of lab play. He wants to play with the resident cats, but he listens when he is told "leave it" or "no." He sleeps in his fosters' bedroom on a dog bed and is quiet all night long. Marley has a sweet, loving and gentle personality and his fosters believe that he may have the potential to become a therapy dog. Marley would do best with a family who would enjoy bonding with him through training their new best friend!

Update from Moe's foster family - Apr 23, 2015: Moselle continues to be the best boy. He's very comfortable visiting other dogs and staying with them. It seems that all the dogs that meet Mo - like him! He can play with the younger ones for a little while and pal around with the older dogs. He hasn't been on a scale recently but I think he's lost some weight. Moselle has a favorite dog bed and stretches out on it every night at bedtime. He loves his leashed walks, but we've been staying at a house with a fenced yard. He absolutely loves checking the perimeter and then laying down. He watches the comings and goings of the birds and squirrels. Sometimes he takes a an antler outside to chew. Mo wins everyone's heart!

Nibbler is an 18 month old black neutered male.  He weighs 58 pounds and is good with other dogs.  He is approved for families 18 and up and is heartworm negative.  Nibbler is a typical energetic young boy.  He will need a home with a yard and at least a 6 foot high fence, as he likes to jump.  Nibbler knows how to sit, wait and will crate on command and he's working on stay.  Nibbler will need a family who will continue to work on his training and give him lots of exercise.  

Nibbler was previously hit by a car, but has been treated for his injuries and has been cleared by the vet to resume normal activities.  He's working on rebuilding his strength in his back legs, re-growing hair and softening his shoulder skin.  His new family will need to apply lotion on his scars for a few more weeks to soften the area.

Update from NIbbler's foster family 2/25/2015

Nibbler continues to do well and thrive in his foster home! He is learning how to walk by your side without pulling. He has a ways to go on this, but is practicing. Once his shoulder scaring heals his new owner could switch to an easy walk harness/collar combo which will help with his walking skills. When outside Nibbler is curious about everything and just wants to run. He can jump straight up in the air as well. Nibbler has been a really great house guest. We haven’t seen any counter surfing or destructive behavior at all. The only thing he likes to do is carry his foster mom’s slippers around the house.  He has learned that he isn’t allowed in certain rooms and respects boundaries even without gates. Nibbler rides well in the car. He stays in the back of the SUV and looks at the world go by wagging his tail.

Roseanne continues to be a welcome houseguest. She is a happy girl and it seems that she is always smiling! She has met many new people and has greeted everyone with confidence and joy. Roseanne is housetrained and has been calm and well behaved in the house. She is content to hang out on the couch while her foster mom works on the computer at night. Roseanne isn’t much of a kisser and would do best with a family that enjoys getting hugs instead as they are her favorite way to show her love. She will, however, happily accept kisses on her nose. She is getting along great with the resident lab and is enjoying their walks together in the neighborhood. Roseanne is a card carrying member of the squirrel patrol and is even more excited when she sees cats so she needs a home without cats.

Update from Ruckus's Foster Family - Mary 22, 2015:

So Ruckus was a great passenger on his trip from the Vet and in heavy traffic for 40 minutes. He is house trained and does just fine out of the crate while I am away. He is very much a paws on dog. He likes his humans and insists on being in lap if given the chance. He loves fetching tennis balls and we can go for 20 minutes before he starts slowing down. So a yard with enough room to play would be nice for him. Ruckus knows some basic commands. He knows sit, come, and a reluctant down now an then. He does best with a Easy Walk Harness for walks. He is so excited to see and smell everything on our walks. I think Ruckus would love be in a home that had another dog to be his companion and to play with.

Shakira has been having a blast running and head diving into the snow. After playing outside or going for a long walk, Shakira loves to relax in front of the nice warm fireplace. She is stronger, more trustworthy, and happier because of her foster family and 4 legged siblings. She is an absolute sweetheart who always seems to be smiling!   She loves belly rubs,  greets us as we walk through the door, and sleeps in the same room as us. We are starting to see more of a playful side to her and she loves her plush toys. She loves walks, running, and my gosh does she love the park and beach. She is gaining weight and is looking great! Her back legs are also getting stronger now that she is able to run in a fenced yard and is able to go for walks. We are working on basic commands, leash commands and getting her used to living indoors. With all that Shakira has been through, her demeanor is fantastic. She is very gentle and calm. It is a pleasure watching her change and grow.

Update from Sweet Pea's foster family May 8, 2015:

ISO WLF (wonderful loving family) to call my own. A few months ago Lab Rescue took me in with severe ear infections. Their only option was to remove my inner and outer ears. Since then, I have been healing and learning all about living indoors and being part of a family. I LOVE being part of a family and meeting new people. Being deaf doesn't slow me down a bit - I just keep an eye on my foster family and follow them around to make sure I'm not missing out on anything (mainly food). I figured out that if I sit nicely, they give me treats. I also love car rides and my toys. My foster mom says I have a big personality and calls me a little stinker. You steal all the shampoo, conditioner and body wash out of the shower and hide them one time and you're labeled a stinker. So unfair. Did I mention how cute I am?

Yayi is an 18 month old spayed female *exotic* lab. She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative. She is good with male dogs and is not good with cats. She is approved for kids aged 10 and up. Yay came to Lab Rescue with a lab friend and though we initially thought they were bonded, we discovered they were better apart. Yayi may not look like your traditional lab, but she has the heart of one! She is an excellent leash walker and is a complete lady.  She looks to you for cues and loves to be with people.  She has a very gentle mouth while taking treats.

Update on Yayi - May 19:

This fabulous girl knows sit, down and roll over. When she rolls over she loves a little belly rub. Yayi loves to say hello to people and has been friendly with everyone she meets. She is an awesome walker and passes dogs, people and even the mailman perfectly. She does sometimes startle with unusual noises but doesn't do anything unladylike! 

May 13 - She was a good girl on our walk. She knows sit and definitely knows her name. She was good with the my two kids and the neighbor (ages 10 and 12). She sat for each of them and took treats nicely. She was a bit nervous on the walk of cars and different noises; her tail would go underneath her when she was scared. We encountered one annoying yappy dog barking at us, so we stayed across the street. I gave Yayi a verbal command (AHH AHHHHH) to ignore the dog anytime she looked at him or her and she did great. She loves her walks!

Update from Zeke's foster family - May 22, 2015:

What a great boy Zeke is!! His new favorite thing to do on his walks is to get a drink from sprinklers and from watering cans when people are watering their flowers. He does not step on the flowers either. He is very mindful of them. He thinks this is the best thing!! He also loves to run his face over the wet grass and get his face wet while he is walking, in addition to licking the water off the grass. How cute!! Tail wagging a mile a minute when he does this. He continues to love his walks and everyone he meets. As I mentioned before , Zeke does well on the leash. He also continues to do well with his basic commands. Zeke is a very friendly, well mannered puppy. He loves to cuddle and be petted. He is going to make such a nice addition to any family. 


May 15, 2015: 

What a wonderful boy Zeke is!! He has been here for just about a week and is doing great! He walks wonderfully on a leash, so much so that my 12 yr old can walk him with no problem. He loves everyone he meets, humans and dogs. He knows sit, come and leave it . Yesterday, Zeke had a big test and passed with flying colors! We were all so proud of him. It was his long day at home while everyone was at work and school. He did marvelous!! He received an A+. Zeke has fine tuned his house manners this week and got another A+. Zeke goes to the back door now and lets us know when he wants to go outside. No begging or stealing food from people nor trash cans. He likes his squeaky pig and his stuffed animals. He likes to play fetch with the tennis ball. It amazes me that he is so calm for a 7 month old . He has his excited moments especially when we come home but is very calm in the house for the most part. Did I say what a great boy he is? He loves when you tell him, Good Boy!! He looks up at you with those big eyes and is so happy that he did a good job.
