On National Rescue Dog Day, what a perfect celebratory Happy Tail for Bailey!

"When we saw Bailey (formerly Sammy) in October 2018 we knew she was meant to be a part of our family. During our meet and greet she made herself at home right away. We were advised of her size and the need for extreme weight loss and were committed to help her get her active life back. She started her journey at 100 lbs and through diet/exercise over the last 18 months she is now about 60 lbs! 

Bailey is the sweetest girl and immediately bonded with our other 2 labs. Her favorite activities are going for rides/outings (she always wants to go), playing in the yard, lots of walks, and snuggling on the couch. Bailey has been a wonderful addition to our family, thank you LVLR!"

Adopted: Daisy, a 10 week old Female Chocolate Labrador

  • Daisy-2
  • Daisy-12
  • Daisy-13
  • Daisy-17
  • Daisy-18

Adopted: Daisy, a 10 week old Female Chocolate Labrador, has found her forever home.

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

***Please read carefully before submitting a meet request for Daisy***

Daisy will need 2-3 follow up appointments with LVLR's veterinarian. The adopting family will be responsible for arranging appointments in the given time frame, and completing required treatment as directed by LVLR or adoption will be rescinded immediately.

"Daisy is a sweet, adorable, playful bundle of puppy love. While still young and learning, Daisy has demonstrated she's very quick to catch on, already responding to commands such as sit, come, kennel. She gets better every day with intermittent crating and sleeping through the night. While Daisy is not 100% house-trained yet, she is doing great with routine trips outside to reinforce positive behavior. Like all puppies her age, Daisy is energetic, mouthy, and needs supervision and training over the next several months. She loves to play with people, and is cautious at first around other dogs. Given Daisy's age, she'll need a family dedicated to continuing her training, teaching her boundaries and expectations, so she grows into the dog she is meant to be. At this age, Daisy is a blank slate, ready and willing to be trained into a fantastic companion dog, with love and support from a committed family.
Families with small children should be cautious when considering Daisy, as her puppy behavior (mouthy, bouncy, and playful!) will need to be monitored to ensure a safe environment."

Adopted: Albert, a 1.5 year old Black Male Labrador, has found his forever home.

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

"Albert still has puppy energy but is as sweet as can be.  He gets along well with other dogs and loves people! We have 4 labs and he loves to play and hang out with them all.  He is potty trained but does need reminding once in awhile and he walks well on the leash.  He sits, gives his paw and then lays down when you give him a treat.  He loves to cuddle while we are sitting on the couch.  He is such a loving dog and will be very easy to train."

Adopted: Willow, a 6 year old Black Female Labrador, has found her forever home.

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

"Willow is a very sweet, affectionate Lab. While she does not like the crate, she has gotten better and will only continue to improve with time. She's not destructive but very playful, good on walks. She may need a little work staying on a designated side but does not bark at other dogs or people. She is a velcro dog so will follow you from room to room, wants to sit right next to you, gives kisses. Willow sleeps through the night, does well in the car and uses the doggie door. She is very gentle with treats when she takes them. Willow would make a great companion for anyone looking for a buddy."

Adopted: Silas, a 2 year old Black Male Labrador, has found his forever home.

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

"Silas is a very happy, energetic lab.  He would do great with a family that is active and able to keep up with his activity level.  He knows sit and even shake sometimes.  He will get attached to you very quickly, and gets very attached to his toys!
He is very curious about other dogs, but has not gotten the chance to interact with them since he is practicing good social distancing.  He is good on walks, as this is a great way to get his exercise in.  

As he is very toy-focused, Silas would do well in a family that introduces him slowly to toys when other dogs are around.  He would make a great addition to a family that is looking for a happy, loyal companion."

Adopted Me: Cash, a 5 year old Male Yellow Labrador, found his forever home.

Here is a Bio from Cash's foster family……..

"Cash is an energetic young boy! He gets along well with his foster brother and sister. He is learning new commands and so far he is doing good with sit. He loves going for rides and is learning how to walk on the leash. He is quite the social butterfly and loves meeting people. He is a little hesitant to go into his kennel at night, but once he does, he does pretty good. He has been sleeping through the night. He hasn’t had any accidents in our house and will go to the door to let us know he needs out. Cash likes to jump up and say hello and this is something we are working on with him. So if you have younger children this is something you will need to continue to work with him on. Cash is a very smart boy and picks up commands really quick. He is a handsome boy who loves to play and loves attention. When he is winding down, he loves to snuggle. I believe Cash would do well with an energetic family that loves all the smiles Cash gives. "

We love getting the sweet updates on our former fosters. Here's Charlie's Happy Tail:

"Wow!  We can’t believe it’s already been a year since we adopted Charlie.  She was so shy and a bit anxious when she arrived.  Over the last year we have loved watching her turn into a happy, confident, lap loving dog.  She has attended a foundation agility class and a few hiking adventures, but her mission in life seems to be giving love to everyone.🐶😃❤️ What a joy she is!!  We are so grateful to the LVLR team for our wonderful girl.  Thank you for Charlie & all the dogs you bring to their forever homes. "

Happy Tail: Gracie

  • IMG_5970

What an incredible Happy Tail from the early years of LVLR!

"Hello. I found your Facebook page and thought you might like an update on a dog I adopted from you in November 2007, Gracie. 

She is now 13 years old and is starting to slow down. She still loves life and taking lots of naps! She has a chiweenie brother, 2 cat siblings and 3 horse siblings. She has been my constant companion since I adopted her and has had many adventures including moving to Idaho and then back to Nevada. 

While I know my time with her is limited, I treasure every day we have with her. Thank you for allowing me to adopt this sweet girl. It was and always will be the best decision I made. ❤️

Thanks again,

Happy Tail: Pepper (Formerly Penelope)

In April of 2017 we met Penelope.  The day she entered our home we knew she was the puppy for us.  We waited many years to bring a dog into our home as we were jugging schedules, work commitments and weren’t home on a consistent basis.   

Penelope became Pepper, and our lives have been forever changed.  She is a loving, curious, enthusiastic dog.  Pepper loves everyone, and especially any new friend that will play fetch with her.  If there is a ball nearby, Pepper will find it, and drop it at your feet. 

Pepper shares our home with our cat, Abbie, who isn’t exactly thrilled by her new sister.  Pepper on the other hand always wants to play, and still tries to engage the cat in a variety of shenanigans. 

Our swimming pool was basically built for this dog.  Our Las Vegas summers are spent swimming, playing ball in the pool,  and drying her off. 

Pepper loves road trips, and is a great companion.  She’s traveled to the beach in Huntington, the mountains in Utah & Lake Tahoe and the snow in Nebraska.  She can also be a sophisticated city dog, staying in hotels and visiting our daughters in Los Angeles & Reno. 

We hope to rescue another Lab from LV Rescue in a few years, giving the cat another reason to be grumpy.  Thank you to all the volunteers and foster parents, you’ve made us very happy. 

Ben & Tami"

We're always so incredibly happy to receive Happy Tails like this:


We adopted Roxy (formally Saydi) in the summer of 2012 when she was about a year and a half. We decided it was time for a dog since we had a nice yard in our new rental house, although at that point we didn’t have a pool. Due to a cruise we were going on, we almost didn’t get Roxy but apparently she decided we were her people and the stars aligned. 
In her early years she had 2-3 runs around Rhodes Ranch everyday plus an hour long “chuck it” ball chasing on the golf course but she still had endless energy. Now as an almost 9 year old, a walk down the street suffices before she turns around. 
She has us wrapped around her paw, when we bought our final house we had to get “a pool for the dog”, yes the realtor looked at us like we were crazy but one of her favorite things is her nightly swims. My husband started out with “no dogs on the furniture” rule, which lasted about 8 months, since he was the one who was always on the floor to be with her. 
Roxy is unlike any other labby I’ve had. She loves oranges, cucumbers, carrots and most other veggies and fruit. Even though she’s slowed down and her face is more “sugary”, she still has the zoomies, enjoys parties with lots of new friends, and rolling around the floor like a bug.
Roxy has fill our life with so much joy and happiness, she is our velcro pup. We are so thankful for the LV Labrador Rescue, it’s been an amazing 7 years!"

  • Lab_Foster_Marcus_Bre_-0071
  • Lab_Foster_Marcus_Bre_-0073

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

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

Please read carefully the medical info for Marcus.

"Marcus is an absolute sweetheart. He gets along well with his foster brother and sister and loves playing with them. Marcus is a little shy when you first meet him, but he warms up very quick. He has had training before and knows the basic commands sit, shake, stay and down. He hasn’t had any accidents in our house and will go to the door when he needs to go outside. He walks really well on a leash and his favorite thing to do is go on rides. He is a little hesitant to go into the crate, but once he does, he sleeps through the night. 

Marcus is a gentle boy who just wants love and I’m sure he will be in his forever home very soon."

Important medical information on Marcus: Marcus had a small mass removed his chest area, which turned out to be a mast cell tumor, low grade, tier 2. The tumor was removed with clean margins, and subsequent blood work, X-rays and ultrasounds revealed there were no other masses or indications that cancer had spread. We understand we cannot predict if another tumor will present itself later, we simply know he's currently tumor free, with great results from the follow up tests.

For potential adopting families that wold like to talk further with our Vet, we're happy to schedule those calls.

Adopted: Rugor, a 5 year old Male Chocolate Labrador, has found his forever home.

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

Please read carefully the medical information.

"Rugor is doing great in his foster home, getting along well with another dog, sleeps through the night and rides well in a car.  He is a sweet, beautiful dog who just wants love and plenty of petting.  

Rugor seems to have had some training as he walks really well on a leash, goes into the crate without whining or barking and never makes a peep when in it, understands a few basic commands and wants to please you.  Toys seem to be new to him but he’s picking up quickly on fun they can be.  He loves his foster sister, wants to play with her more than she might like, but he’s not a barker.  And the best part is that he hasn’t had any accidents in the house.

Rugor is a keeper and I’m confident he won’t be looking for his furever home very long. 

Important information about Rugor's medical history: when he was younger, he was shot with a small caliber weapon, resulting in vision & hearing damage to his right eye/ear. We do not know the extent of the damage, as he seems to have some slight vision in that eye, but there are no residual implications from the injury. He is healthy otherwise, and a joy to be around."

Here's a beautiful Happy Tail for Jojo (Formerly Josie):

"An update on Jojo.  We adopted her September 2017 as a ten month old, today she is 3 years and 1 month old.  Jojo is not only the humans companion but she also has become our elderly dog, Gracie's care taker.  She wakes Gracie several times a day and motivates her to go outside with her.   Even when she was 10 months old, she understood that Gracie was a grumpy old lady and had a respect for her.  Gracie has never shared a bed with any dog with the exception of Jojo.  The only one habit we can't seem to break from Jojo is her excitement for guests, she wants to greet them with a jump.  She spends many days with me in the garden, I have 25 fruit trees and several vegetable beds and there is a lot of activity in the garden from chasing lizards, rabbits, birds, bees and butterflies to carrying thick tree limbs and dragging branches around the yard.  She has dog toys and she enjoys playing with them as equally as playing with what nature has to offer her.   Thank you Las Vegas Lab Rescue for this wonderful dog!  
Sylvia and Mark"

What a wonderfully sweet Happy for Duncan (Formerly Simba)


Hi Las Vegas Lab Rescue,
We rescued Duncan (formerly Simba) in August after he was brought over from China. He has quickly became the shining star of our whole world. He is so spunky and loves to play with people and dogs and gets so excited when he meets someone new. He graduated level one petco training at the top of his class (and early!) and knows how to sit, lay down, stay, leave it, and come when he is called. He loves to hike and leads the pack every time. As spunky as he is, there’s nothing he loves more than spending a Sunday morning cuddling on the couch with mom and dad. "

Jojo brings so much joy and laughter to everyone she meets, and I am very lucky to call her mine! "

Here's another gorgeous Happy Tail for Ellie (formerly Janie)

"We were filled with excitement when we found out that we were approved to adopt a beautiful yellow Labrador back in April. Ellie, or formerly known as Janie, has brought so much love and excitement into our home. Our sweet Ellie girl is a rambunctious young lab, who is filled with personality and loves to be the center of attention. She gets along great with our 10-year-old boxer, Guiness, and has brought some youth back into him. She is a pure family dog who just wants to be next to you at all times. Our spunky girl keeps definitely keeps us on our toes. A few of Ellie’s favorite are going on walks, playing hide and  seek in the house, playing fetch, chewing on indestructible chew toys, eating her dad’s sandals when he forgets to put them away, belly rubs, sweet morning cuddles, sleeping under the bed, turning on the bathtub water when thirsty, and barking at all dogs that she sees on the TV. Ellie is notorious for getting her toys stuck in tight spots and letting us know when she needs our help retrieving it. Ellie quickly integrated into our household making it her new safe spot. Our home would not be the same without our little girl in it. We couldn’t be more thankful for the Lab Rescue for our newest and sweetest addition to our family."

Here are some pictures of Buddy playing with his best friends Oscar and Jasper. Merry Christmas to Las Vegas Lab Rescue and thank you for Buddy. "

What a sweet, heart-warming happy tail for Maggie.

"Maggie found me when I needed her the most. In the middle of a divorce, a new job, my daughter in daycare for the first time, things were hard. I ran into two gentlemen at a dog washing store. They had two beautiful labs with them. I told them how much I loved labs and wanted an older female to be a companion for my little dog. They looked at each other and said “Maggie!” They told me her story, her owners divorced, her owner that took her was not allowed to have dogs and had to surrender her. I had two pit bulls that I had to leave with my ex-husband because nobody would allow them. Maggie had a dog brother that she was separated from and they told me she cried driving away. My daughter had step siblings that she was being separated from and I thought of our drive away. I said “I will take her.” I went the next day to meet Maggie and fill out the application, but she wasn’t there. She was at the vet, I filled out the application and waited impatiently for news. Luckily we were selected and Maggie came home to us that Easter Sunday. She was 6.5 years young and instantly jumped in the bounce house. Maggie filled the holes in our hearts with her love. She was my best friend, she was meant to be my dog. As the years moved on, she slowed down, but always met me at the door, walked me to the door before work, and she continued to fill my heart with love. Maggie was there when we found our new person, she started new schools with my daughter, and saw us get back on our feet. Maggie stayed with us until she knew we were going to be okay. In August of this year Maggie crossed the Rainbow bridge and took a huge part of my heart with her. She gave me the best 7 1/2 years of my life. I am forever grateful to your organization, those two amazing guys that knew we needed each other and the chance to have loved the best dog in the world. My heart will always ache for her, but she was worth it all. Thank you for giving us both a second chance. We miss you Maggie. "

Adopted: Arya, a 1.5 year old Black Female Labrador, has found her forever home.

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

"Arya is a sweet, well behaved, energetic little girl with lots of love to give. She is a little shy at first but warms up very quickly. Arya is technically black, but has the charcoal shade of black in her coat. She is great with other dogs. She loves going for walks and is good on the leash. She loves to cuddle on the couch. She listens to basic commands like sit, lay down and she gives high fives. She goes in the kennel with no problem and sleeps through the night without barking or crying. Arya does need work with house training, but she's very smart and quick to learn. Arya is going to be a great companion for someone looking for a younger, active dog. "

What's better than a Happy Tail? A double Happy Tail! Here's a great update from a multiple adopter of LVLR:

'Kona (fka Toby) is coming up on his 6th adoptaversary with our family. He still loves walks, food, barking at dogs and humans anywhere in the vicinity of our house, naps on the couch, and did I mention food? He is now 7, so he naps more and loves to snuggle up alongside his family on the couch to watch movies, football, or hockey.

Kiera has been with us for 2 1/2 years and came to us as an active senior dog. She loves being the boss of Kona, walks, food, snuggling on the couch, and going for rides in the car. She is estimated to be 9 -10 years old now, but has as much energy as a puppy most of the time. No toy is safe when Kiera decides to “play.” Kiera is not as fond of hockey and football and has her own noise reducing headphones to wear when the Buckeyes, Packers, or Golden Knights are on and her family gets excited. (Pic) Kiera is more comfortable around other people and dogs, so she went trick-or-treating this year with her human brother (pic.)

Kona and Kiera have brought more unconditional love into our home than we ever imagined was possible. Thank you for bringing us together, LVLR."

Thank you for letting us adopt him and making him a part of our family."

We couldn't be happier to see this Happy Tail from one of the Magnificent 7 puppies of 2017:

"It's been 2 1/2 years since Finn came home with us. It was several months after our previous lab had passed away and
the timing was perfect. He was a typical lab puppy; so cute and yet so stubborn and had what we called RAV's - Random acts of violence.
He has since grown out of chewing on socks, refusing to walk on a leash (that was short lived) and stealing tissues and underwear.
He is such a goofball and fits in perfectly with our family. He now loves to go on runs, hiking, lots of naps on a pillow, loves to get all of
his toys out of his toy box and has finally learned to get his picture taken without barking at the camera. His big soft ears are just the best!

Thank you for our precious pup!

Brian, DJ, Hannah, Sarah and Kelsey"

"We have had our Lily just short of 2 years. We knew taking her would be a challenge as she was dog apprehensive and we had another rescue, for about 9 weeks prior. Determined to free up her foster, Tim, to take in others, and give her a forever home, we researched solutions and talked with Dave. He came to our home to see Mia, and determined we were a good fit. We were. It took several months to be able to leave our girls alone, but we did it. They sleep together. Lily goes everywhere with us, hiking, to Nelson, on vacation, restaurants, stores, she runs and slams her body against the garage door if she sees us getting ready to go anywhere. She sleeps with us. She watches TV with us. She helps me cook in the kitchen, volunteering for clean up duty should I drop anything. Can’t imagine life without her, and truly feel sorry for whoever gave her up. She is one of the best blessings we have ever had. Thanks Cynthia for pulling this one. We are complete."

Here's another fantastic Happy Tail from an LVLR adopter:

We adopted Dodger formally Malone. In the beginning of 2013, he is doing great, he loves his little sister Jasmine. It’s funny he has his choice of 3 beds and always chooses the smallest one. He was such a great addition to our family!

Thank You!

Happy Tail: Raider (Formerly Conner)

We love getting these updates on our adopted Labs!

We adopted a four month old boy back in April. He was one of three lab mix puppies rescued from Utah. He has since been named Raider. Most of our family are huge Raider fans and my husband has been working on the Raider stadium for the past couple years, so it just fit.

We knew Raider was a mix when we adopted him, but curiosity got the best of us so we did one of those home DNA tests. To our surprise our black Lab is actually a Rottweiler in disguise, lol. He is 2% Labrador. We love him just the same. 💚

Raider is extremely smart. He knows all the normal commands, but beyond that he uses his wit to get away with naughty stuff too. He can snatch food off your plate in a way that leaves no mess or evidence. He knows how to step on the foot lever of the trash can to get it open. He hides stolen items under couches or other low places that people can’t easily get to. He amazes me sometimes with his sneakiness.

He is very good with both our kids and he would protect our 4 year old daughter with his life. He is her big lap dog baby. He loves chasing bunnies in our back yard, even though he is yet to catch one. He is probably the fastest dog I’ve ever seen too. His best friend/enemy is the neighbors cat. Sometimes they snuggle and sometimes they try to eat each other. The cat had the upper hand for about the first three months (see video).

Raider is a happy boy. He has an acre to runaround and play, but still loves snuggling on the couch just as much. We are so happy to have him as part of our family.
