Pending: Cash, a 1 year old Male Yellow Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster family:

"My name is Cash. I am a 1yr. old, beautiful, yellow, male Labrador Retriever.  I am a very active, rambunctious and  playful fella. I love being outdoors to run and play fetch, but haven't mastered "drop it" yet, but will let you take the ball easily from me. I know some commands, "sit", "stay" "down" and "no", but could use more training. 

I am potty trained and go outside to do my business and have had no accidents in the home. I can be a little mouthy, but when told no, I will back off. I will try again, but a stern "no" backs me off again. I can use more training in that area too. I am not destructive or look to chew household items. I love my chew toys to keep me busy. I also like to chill and relax on the bed with my humans and love belly rubs and ear rubs and love to lick their faces. I like being cozy with my humans and the love and attention they give me. I sleep through the night on my humans bed and I'm also crate trained, but need some coaxing to go inside and will cry a little at first, but I soon settle down. I like to chill too after a fun day of playing.

As a young pup, I am still learning what is expected of me, but I'm a good boy and eager to please. I would be great as an only dog, but since I am very playful, I would also be great with other dogs with my high activity level. With continued, love and training, I will be the best doggie for your family. "

Adopt Me: Fowler, a 2-3 year old Male Chocolate Labrador

  • Fowler

Adopt Me: Fowler, a 2-3 year old Male Chocolate Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster family:

"Fowler is a work in progress! This handsome fella is super loving and affectionate, and really enjoys his humans. He's energetic, athletic, big and strong. Fowler is a Lab that doesn't quite understand his own size & strength, and we're working on teaching him appropriate behaviors. He plays like a 6 month old puppy, in a full sized body. He gets the zoomies 2-3 times a day, overly excited and mouthy. While typical behavior expected in a puppy, we're working on directing that energy positively as he's a big boy. In a few ways, Fowler is still very much a happy, goofy puppy. He's learning what he can/can't chew on (loves a blanket!) and mostly sticks to allowed toys. Fowler is very smart, with a strong drive for direction & work. He's getting better at heeling and walking on leash, knows 'sit', and is house trained. He's getting pretty good with the doggie door too! Fowler loves his naps, loves to chase a ball, and gets along with other dogs. We have no idea how he'd be with smaller animals, and while he'd love children, he doesn't know his own strength and could easily knock a little one down in his excitement. Fowler also seems to prefer 'human' food, and doesn't eat like a typical Lab. He's getting better realizing that the counter is not for him, but still takes his time eating his own meal.

Where Fowler needs work is being in the crate. He is not happy to be crated, preferring to be out. He gets himself overly excited and vocal when he's crated, and can bust out if not properly secured. We are working on teaching him the crate is a safe place, but it will take time and patience to build of his confidence with crating.

Fowler will need a strong leader to continue training and providing a safe, secure environment. He wants to please, and would do great with professional training. Fowler really is a big love, wanting to snuggle with people and be near them. While he has a bit to go, Fowler will make an amazing companion for a family committed to continuing his training, and providing a happy, active life. "

Adopt Me: Mongo, a 1.5 year old Black Male Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is an UPDATED bio from his foster family:

"Hi, I am Mongo and I am 1-1/2 years old.  I am very playful and have a lot of energy, but it is sporadic.  I take long walks every day and love to play, especially, with a rope toy and balls, I even entertain myself.  I love to chase balls and I will bring the ball back; however, I may chew on it for a bit before giving it back.  I'm a total sweetheart and lover.  I love to be loved, scratches behind the ears, back scratches, belly rubs and being brushed.  I can sit, lay down, place, stay, love to go for rides and load in a car well, and don't counter surf.  I also don't get on the furniture.  I know the commands: place, stay, break, sit, down, back, here, off, come, and no.  I'm working on the commands: give and drop it when playing ball.  I am really good in the house uncrated; I am housebroken, use a doggie door and crate well.  Walks/hikes are a favorite time for me; walking on a leash is a work in progress.  I am strong and I'm working on not pulling on the leash.  I have not been socialized much, but I am getting better every time I go out and walk in the park, so that is a work in progress as well.  I am a very loyal and loving companion.  I am looking for a furever home that will go for walks, take me on car rides, play with me and give me attention and love."

Adopt Me:Ash, a 5 month old Black Male Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is an UPDATED bio from his foster family:

"Ash is growing fast and learning a lot! He had to move foster homes, and is doing great with his new foster brother. He is learning how to use the dog door, loves playing but isn't too interested in the pool yet. Ash is a 5month old male black Labrador who is full of puppy energy and curiosity! Ash is eager to learn and loves to please his humans. Ash is making strides on the potty training, with regular intervals outside to reinforce proper behavior. He does vocalize his discontent when he is first put in the crate but settles down after a few minutes. Ash plays well with other dogs but does need correction cause he gets overly excited. As he is a puppy, he is energetic, mouthy, and growing. Ash will do well with someone will give him consistent training and correction. 

***Ash has 1 follow up appointments with our Vet. The adopting family will be required to complete this appointment***

  • Sammi

Adopted: Dex, a 4 year old Male Yellow Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster family:

"Dex is a big, sweet boy who loves chasing a ball. He is big, strong and athletic, and needs more work on leash training, as he can pull in his excitement. Dex knows some commands like sit, come, drop it. He is very food motivated, so we're using a slow feeder to slow him down. He does attempt to counter surf, and we're working on correcting this behavior. Dex is crate trained, but not a big fan, and whines a bit before settling down. Dex will need a little extra time to get used to new people & places. He sleeps through the night, loves car rides, and plays a lot. While he had a couple of inside accidents, we think it's more from being in a new surrounding than a training issue. Dex loves people, and does well with other dogs with proper introductions. He has been an only dog so far in his life. We have no idea how he'd be with smaller animals. Give Dex a ball, and is your best friend.

Dex will do great with an active family, willing to continue to stimulate both his brain and his body. He thrives with postive reinforcement and activity, and will make such a great buddy for the right family. "

Adopted: Sammi, a 9-12 month old Black Female Labrador, has found her forever home.

Sammi currently has the maximum allowed meet requests, please watch for updates.

Here is a bio from from her foster family:

"Sammi is a happy beautiful black lab around 9-12 months old. She loves to be right by your side and follows you everywhere.  She’s learning quickly how to fit into our home and is getting along well with our two dogs. She is just learning about toys and treats and she enjoys both. She is still a puppy and needs some work on manners but overall she is really easy. She sleeps quietly through the night in a kennel but is not a fan of going in.  Once she is in she is quiet. She has not had any accidents in the house. She is energetic but not over the top. She walks ok on the leash but could use some work on it. Overall she is a sweet easy going pup looking for a furever home where she can be right by your side. "

Adopt Me: Duke, an 8 year old Yellow Male Labrador

  • Duke-2
  • Duke-3
  • Duke-4
  • Duke-7
  • Duke-9

Adopt Me: Duke, an 8 year old Male Yellow Labrador, is looking for his forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster family:

Please read carefully!

"Duke is just amazing. He is very gentle and a real love bug. He likes to play with tug toys and balls, and loves a walk. He eats anything, not picky at all. He does need to shed a few more pounds, so he is on a diet. Don’t tell him, he doesn’t know. When he is finished with his food, he’ll even bring the bowl to you to fill up again. Nice try Dukey!!! He uses a dog door, and will stand by our gate when we leave to wait for us to return. He sleeps in bed with us, and sometimes gets out of bed and lays on the floor next to the bed. He can be mouthy when playing, is very gentle and responds to “No”. Duke is very obedient. He knows sit, stay, down, go to bed, bring me your bowl, come", and perhaps a few others. He will go in his crate, but he has free run of our house. He has a “person”, and is very attached. Duke is like Velcro with his favorite person. Duke does get along with other dogs, but we are unsure of cats.

Duke had a very rough period of adjustment coming in to foster care, he really loved his original family, and now totally trusts his fosters. There will be an adjustment period, and will need extra time, patience and love to adjust to his furever home. Duke is also treated for dry eyes and gets 2 different sets of drops, twice a day. He is pretty good about the drops, but it can be tricky. We have it down to a science and can teach any adoptive family the tricks. This boy is one in a million."

IMPORTANT: Duke has Addison’s Disease , so the adopting family will need to take him for regular vet visits to get a shot to maintain his system. It is under control now, as we and our vet worked diligently to find correct meds and dosage. Duke currently needs the medication every 10 weeks and price can vary between veterinary hospitals.

Adopted: Charlie, a 3 year old Male Chocolate Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster family:

"Charlie is a big, happy boy! He is loving, affectionate and adores cuddling & belly rubs. He is crate trained, house trained, does well with people and other dogs and already knows how to use the dog door. Charlie is energetic, and needs more leash training, as he pulls and is strong. Charlie sleeps through the night, loves to play, and rides well in a car. Charlies knows some commands, and would benefit from a refresher on the basics. Charlie LOVES to play ball, and will *almost* bring it back, but prefers to play keep away.

Charlie will be a wonderful companion for an active family, as he is energetic and loving. "

Adopted: Moa, an 8 month old Yellow Female Labrador, has found her forever home.

Here is a bio from her foster family:

"Moa is a wonderfully sweet, loving girl. She is definitely a puppy still, energetic and playful. She's mouthy and likes to jump up on people, we're working on teaching her not to. She's smart and knows a few commands, and is a very happy girl. She does great with other dogs, rides in a car well, is house trained and sleeps through the night. Moa isn't a fan of the crate, but she is getting used to it. She does need to lose a little weight, but with routine activity, she'll be set.

Watching Moa play with her foster sister is wonderful, she's really such a good natured pup. She will make a great companion to an active family committed to training and love for Moa."

  • Joy

Pending: Joy, a 3 month old Yellow Female Labrador, has found her forever home.

Here is a bio from her foster family:

"Joy is your typical bundle of lab puppy love! She's smart, energetic, and working on all kinds of training. Joy is still working on being house-trained, and will continue to need structure & guidance to get there completely. Given her age, she is still up 2-3 times a night for breaks, but is improving and starting to sleep a little longer. She still has the occasional accident, as we're trying to learn her cues and teach her what she needs to do. Joy is playful, attentive, and is in prime puppy form! She's mischievous, mouthy, and loves to play. She also puts any & everything her mouth, and needs to be supervised at all times. Joy is getting better with crate training, and is learning that crate is a safe, happy space for her.

Joy will need a family committed to continuing her training, In many ways she is a blank slate, and needs to learn boundaries and what's expected of her in behavior. Puppies are hard work! She's going to be a larger, strong Lab, and will need continued work as she grows up. Families with small children should be aware Joy is mouthy, with razor sharp teeth. Joy will make an excellent companion with the family that understands a puppy's needs, and is committed to the work it will take to raise her to be the best dog she can be.

Joy also has 2 remaining vet appointments that will need to be completed by the adopting family."

Adopted: Harper, a 4 year old Female Chocolate Labrador, has found her forever home.

Here is a bio from her foster family:

"Hi I'm Harper, a beautiful, 4yr. old chocolate Lab. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but if you ask my foster parents, they'd say I'm just as beautiful on the inside as I am on the outside. I'm extremely sweet and loving and love giving affection, as much as I love receiving it, and also love attention and belly rubs and love cuddling with my humans. I am not destructive with clothes or household items, but once in awhile will find something to chew. However, if I'm given a toy ball or other toys, that will keep me from otherwise chewing on items I shouldn't. I love to play outside and fetch, but can easily come inside after a short time and chill by my human's side. I'm also a little counter-surfer, but I listen when told to get down. I potty outside, but can have an accident inside once in awhile, but with continued training, that shouldn't be a problem for long. I love going on walks and I'm a wonderful leash walker, no pulling. I know the command to sit, but need continued training with other commands and I'm eager to learn. I'm great with other dogs and would be wonderful with children too!

I'm looking for my loving forever home and know with love and affection and continued training in certain areas, I will be the best doggie addition to your family!"

"Hi, I am Angus and I am 4 years old years old.  I am a big boy; 80 lbs.  I take walks every day, and don't really eat that much for my size.  I'm a total sweet heart and lover.  I am loyal, get along with other dogs and love to play.  I love to chase balls and I will bring the ball back and drop the ball at your feet; however I may chew on it for a bit.  I love to be loved, scratches behind the ears, back scratches and belly rubs.  I can sit, and lay down, stay, load in a car, get out of the kitchen (when my breakfast is being fixed).   I know the commands: back, off, here, come, and no.  I do not counter surf.  I am good in the house, I am housebroken, use a doggie door and crate well..  Walks are a favorite time for me.  I walk well on a leash.  I love to go in the car with you and I load very well.  I am looking for a forever home that will go for walks, take me on car rides, and give me attention and love."

Adopted: Ridley, a 3 year old Male Yellow Labrador

  • Ridley Ball
  • Ridley Good Boy
  • Ridley Pose
  • Ridley Sit
  • Ridley Stand

Adopted: Ridley, a a 3 year old Male Yellow Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster family:

"Ridley is a happy, well-mannered, sweet and lovable three-year old male yellow lab. He is extremely friendly and wants to give love and attention to everyone he meets. He is playful, loves to run and very good at fetch. He has a good deal of energy, but is past the puppy stage and is not wild or destructive. He is food motivated and loves to eat. He is attentive and does his best to do exactly what you ask of him. He is curious and likes to be involved in whatever is happening. He is ready to do anything, but can also be happy just lying by your side. He likes to give and get hugs and seems perfectly comfortable on any type of furniture. 

Ridley knows many of his basic commands, “sit, stay, down, off, wait…”. He walks reasonably well on the leash, without significant pulling. His recall is good, and we are reinforcing using his name because we are not sure that he knows it. He is potty trained and has had no accidents during his time with us, even though he is recovering from his neutering surgery. With the help of our dog, he learned to use the doggy door the first day with us and will use it when needed, or with a gentle reminder.  

Ridley has done very well with other dogs, playing and interacting with our dog and a neighbor dogs. We are not sure about how he will react to cats or other small animals, but he does not seem to have a significant prey instinct. He is an excellent watch dog, excitedly alerting us to people at the front door, without barking. He is crate trained and is able to sleep through the night by himself. He seems to like car rides, but wants to sit up front with the driver for the best view.  

Ridley has been a pleasure to have in our home. He is a good dog that, with some consistent and reinforced training will turn into an excellent dog. He will do well in any home, including those with children and other dogs. He is looking for someone to love him and take care of him as a companion or as a family dog. "

  • Finn-2

  • Finn-4
  • Finn

Adopted: Finn, a 9 month old Male Yellow Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a bio from Finn's foster family:

"Finn is a sweet, beautiful cuddle bug who wants to please his people. He has a kind personality but still has many things to learn.  This big boy is full of puppy energy, which means he's super playful and needs lots of attention. He loves hanging with his people and doesn’t love being left alone, but he is learning that his crate can be safe and comfortable. Finn loves his “babies” - fluffy toys and chew toys. He also loves meeting new people and believes everyone is a new friend.

Finn is working hard on potty training. Most of the time, he goes outside, but he still has a few accidents. He’s come a long way in the week he’s spent in our home, so we’re confident he’ll be completely housebroken with a few more weeks of a consistent, patient routine. He is very motivated by treats, so learning to sit, shake, and “go to bed” has come very easily for him. He is still learning leash manners and is gently mouthy with less dominant household members when playing, but he is beginning to learn that mouthy play is not welcome with his human friends.                                        

With lots of love, guidance, and patience, Finn has endless potential to be an incredibly playful and loyal family pet."

  • Luna-30
  • Luna-32

Adopted: Luna, a 10 month old Female Silver Labrador, found her forever home.

Here is a bio from her foster family:

"Luna is a total joy to have in our home. She's a happy, sweet, affectionate girl. Luna is very energetic, loves to chase a ball and play. As she's still a puppy, she's mouthy and likes to put all sorts of items in her mouth. She's learning 'drop it' and getting a little better returning items. She knows sit, and we're working on other commands. She is very much food motivated, is learning to take treats gently, and wants to be a counter surfer. Luna is very smart, curious and confident. She is eager to please, loves her humans, and will thrive with continued training.

Luna is doing well with crate training, rides calmly in the car, sleeps through the night and is mostly house trained. She's a really good natured dog for her age, and on the larger size for Labs. She doesn't realize how big she is, and when excited, can knock in to people. She gets along with other dogs, but we have no idea about cats. Luna isn't too interested in birds in the back yard, so she may be fine with small animals.

Luna needs continued work with jumping up on people, counter surfing and walking on leash. She is making improvements on both, families with small children should be committed to further training if interested in meeting Luna. Luna will be an amazing companion for an active family committed to regular exercise and continued training."

  • Juno-7
  • Juno

Adopted: Juno, a 4 year old Black Female Labrador, who is looking for her forever home.

Here is a bio from her foster family:

"Juno is a beautiful girl, high energy, but settles down eventually. She doesn’t bark, only heard her once or twice in 4 weeks. She will eat anything, we feed her with a slow feeder (to come with her). We are currently trying to get a few pounds off her. Sleeps well, and will go in her crate if we need to leave for a couple hours during the day. She sleeps in a crate or on a dog bed next to me. She loves to chase a ball, once she starts, she doesn’t want to stop. Walks on a leash like a pro. We always use a Martingale collar or harness. Knows sit and stay commands, however will usually lay down if in a sit very long. Juno understands no and off, usually complies, but she is a tease. Gets along with all the neighborhood dogs, as well as our own. She is a lover, not a fighter. Uses a dog door, and has never had an accident in our home. She is not destructive, leaves things alone. A pile of Kongs helps ensure this. I wouldn’t leave food out, however. I believe all bets would be off. Rides great in a car, we put her crate in the back of our SUV and she lays down and is quiet the whole way, 4-5 hour stretches. She is a fierce chewer, so Kong toys are best. We put low cal, low fat powdered peanut butter inside her Kong and she entertains herself her a long time. She loves playing and interaction with her people, so an active couple with time to play would be her Christmas wish come true."

Adopted: Mud Pie, a 5 year old Male Silver Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster family:

"Mud Pie, nicknamed Muddy, is a 5 yr. old Lab male. He is a big boy, but don’t let that fool you. He gets excited when first meeting people, but calms down fast. He is one sweet, well-behaved, lovable boy, who listens and showers his humans with kisses, loves to cuddle and sleeps through the night on his human’s bed. He knows the commands of sit, down and stay. He can be a little mouthy at times, but will stop when told no and doesn’t grab anything around the house. He is potty trained and will also let you know when he wants to go out. He is an excellent walker, who stays by your side and doesn’t pull and will benefit from daily walks to lose some weight.

Muddy is such a pleasure! He will make a wonderful addition to a family with children and other pets. "

Adopted: Canyon, a 1 year old Black Male Labrador, who is looking for His forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster family:

"Canyon is 1 year and 2 months old.  Still a puppy in lab terms.  He has adjusted well and loves to cuddle and get scratches.  Canyon is very enthusiastic about life, active and loves to play ball and, he brings the ball back to you.  He crates well, and sleeps through the night.  Canyon is house broken and doggie door trained.  He is learning commands and knows, "sit", "down" (lay down), "off" "come," "leave it," "do your business," "outside," and we are working on "stay."  Canyon is doing very well at commands considering he knew nothing when he arrived.  He walks on a leash, but that is a work in progress.  We are working on socialization, which he is doing well at.  Canyon does go on hikes in the desert off leash and does very well.  Canyon also responds out in the desert to a whistle.  He is a counter surfer, when you are not looking, mostly following a feeding; looking for that additional meal or treat.  Canyon is a very loyal, lovable dog, loves belly rubs and will crawl up in your lap given the invitation."

***Canyon has a follow up appointment with our vet for neutering***

"Hunter is 9 months old and very much a puppy.  He has a puppy's enthusiasm for life and has adjusted well.  He is still investigating his environment through his mouth, and he can get a little mouthy at times.  Hunter loves to cuddle and get scratches.  He is very enthusiastic about life, active and loves to play ball and, he brings the ball back to you.  Hunter crates well, and sleeps through the night.  He is house broken and doggie door trained.  Hunter is learning commands and knows "sit", "down" (lay down), "off" "come," "leave it," "do your business," "outside," and we are working on "stay."  Most commands are a work in progress, cause he has the attention span of a puppy, but he is doing exceedingly well at them considering he knew nothing when he arrived.  We are working on socialization, which he is doing well at.  He walks on a leash, but that is a work in progress.  He does go on hikes in the desert off leash and does very well.  Hunter can be a bit timid at times with new experiences, but with patience and calm, works through them rapidly.  Hunter also responds out in the desert to a whistle.  He is a counter surfer, when you are not looking, mostly following a feeding; looking for that additional meal or treat.  Hunter is very loyal, inquisitive, loves belly rubs and wishes he was a lap dog."

***Hunter will require a follow up appointment to get neutered with our vet***

Adopted Doug, a 5 month old Male Yellow Labrador

  • Doug

Adopted: Doug, a 5 month old Male Yellow Labrador, found forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster family:

"The first thing you should know about Doug is he is named for the mascot/CEO of the 15/10 Foundation, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge the day before LVLR brought Doug in their care. As the foundation helps shelter dogs with medical needs get adopted, we found it only fitting to honor Doug in this way.

Our Doug can be very timid when meeting new people, but is gaining confidence every day. He rides well in a car and sleeps almost all through the night. Doug is still young, and doing great with house training, with scheduled breaks outside. Doug will continue to need guidance and structure to get fully house trained. He loves to chase a ball, run & play, and is doing well with bringing it back. Doug is doing well in a crate over night, and we're working leaving him alone in crate during day, so he gets more comfortable. He is still unsure of leash walking, and can get scared quickly, but with more time & repetition, he'll be good. Doug is very smart, quick to learn, and loves people.

As he gets more comfortable, Doug is showing his puppy traits, the mouthy, chewing, mischief side. Socks everywhere should be on high alert! Doug will need a family committed to his ongoing training, teaching Doug appropriate behaviors with a gentle touch. Doug really just wants to be loved, and is such a sweet boy with humans. He loves other dogs as well.

Doug will make an excellent companion for the family willing to continue training him, and showing how to grow into a well mannered dog.

*Anyone considering adopting Doug will be required to schedule his neuter with our Vet within 30 days of adoption.*

Adopted: Briggs, a 2-3 year old Male Yellow Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster home:

"Briggs is such a joy! He rides well in a car, gets along with other dogs and is house trained. Briggs is an absolute sweetheart, very loving and affectionate. He loves to take walks and is excellent on leash. While he is strong and athletic, he is also gentle taking treats and loves to snuggle. We have no cats so we don't know how he'd be, but he doesn't seem to have much interest in the birds he sees.

Briggs will make an awesome companion for the family looking for their 'buddy' dog."

  • Gunner Blk

Adopted: Gunner, a 1.5 year old Black Male Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster family:

"Gunner is a sweet, energetic and curious pup. He is a bit timid when first meeting other dogs and people, but warms up very quick. He loves playing with balls and toys with his foster brothers. Gunner is a little shy of his surroundings when going on a walk and will need gentle correction when he starts pulling and gets excited. Gunner can be anxious, and quickly calms down while given a toy or going on a walk. He knows how to use a doggie door. He has had a few accidents, but with gentle guidance will go potty while outside. Gunner is getting a lot better with going in his kennel and will sleep through the night. He loves cuddles and ear scratches. Gunner believes he is a lap dog and will give “hugs” to get in your lap. He is a very smart and quick learner who wants to please his people. Gunner would be a wonderful addition to any family looking for a loyal companion. "

Jocko is good with other dogs, playful and responsive.  He will play with other dogs and play "tug of war" with a rope toy with dogs and humans.  Jocko walks pretty well on a leash and does very well on long walks, and hikes in the desert.

Jocko is a lover and enthusiastically enjoys pets, attention, tummy rubs, scratches behind the ears and cuddles.  He thinks he is a lap dog.  

Jocko is house trained and knows how to use a doggie door and do his business outside.  He knows the commands;  come, off, leave it, sit, down, kennel, load, do your business and stay.  He is kennel trained and travels well in the car.  

Jocko is a very loving and affectionate boy, and will climb in your lap if you let him. He will make a great companion to a family committed to his ongoing training."

Adopted: Rusty, a 1.5 year old Male Yellow Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

A bio from his foster home:

"Rusty is a very sweet, loving male Lab. He is extremely well behaved. He is somewhat underweight but eats well and loves getting treats and is coming along beautifully. He is a little timid and not very sure of what is expected of him but wants to please. He stays by his human’s side and follows wherever they go and needs encouraging to go potty when he’s outside. He loves playing and fetching his ball. He sleeps through the night and only goes in his crate when left alone in the house and will cry a little but then settles down. He loves to cuddle in bed or on the couch with his humans and loves affection and belly rubs. He is eager to learn and needs continued training and positive  reinforcement with commands and leash training. Rusty has improved a lot in foster care, becoming more confident, responsive and affectionate. He is a wonderful dog and will make a great companion, with a family committed to his ongoing training."

Happy Tail: Bubba

We love receiving these amazing updates on our adopted Labs! What a lovely Happy Tail for Bubba:

"Hi everyone,

We wanted to update you about Bubba. We have had him for just over a month and he is such a good boy! He came to us with a few commands and, with the help of one of his new brothers, he has learned how to fetch, as well as swim. He still walks around with a stuffy in his mouth and never destroys them, though he loves to destroy toys meant for chewing. He continues to be very excited when new people come to visit, but has learned not to jump most of the time. Oh, and he’s such a snuggle bug! We just love him and we are so grateful to LVLR for matching us with the most perfect boy for our family ❤️"

Adopted: Thatcher, a 6 year old Female Yellow Labrador, has found her forever home.

Here is a Bio from her foster family……..

"Thatcher is a gentle girl who just wants to be with you all the time. She has a spunky side that we are keeping in check right now because she was just spayed. She does retrieve well and She did sneak into the pool once so we know she enjoys water. She loves playing in the cool grass in the morning. She gets along with all of our dogs and because she is so gentle, we think she may be good with cats and kids but has not yet been tested. She sleeps through the night in a crate by our bedside but her favorite spot is wherever you are.
She is potty trained no accidents. Respectful of belongings in house, only plays with dog toys that are available to her.

Thatcher would be a great companion dog for a calm home. She needs some leash work with positive reinforcement. She sits and will lay down on command with some coaxing. She appears to have been trained to shake because every time we ask her to sit, she raises her paw.

Thatcher is ready to find her furever family!”
