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. "

Adopted: Finn, a 9 month old Male Yellow Labrador

  • 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."

Adopted: Luna, a 10 month old Female Silver Labrador

  • Luna-7
  • Luna-13
  • Luna-11
  • Luna-24
  • 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."

Adopted: Juno, a 4 year old Black Female Labrador

  • 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."

Adopted Doug, a 5 month old Male Yellow Labrador

  • Doug-2
  • Doug-3
  • Doug-4
  • Doug-6
  • 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.*

"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.

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

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.

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!”

Adopted: Ollie, a 2 year old Male Yellow Labrador, has found his forever home.

Here is a bio from his foster home:

“Ollie is a sweet, energetic and fun-loving two-year old yellow lab. He is extremely friendly with humans and other animals. He loves to play with toys, fetch, explore and seek out new adventures. He likes to be active, but also understands when it is time to relax and calm down.

Ollie is gentle and very loveable, seeking out attention from people. He is friendly and curious about everything, including the sights and sound of the television. He loves petting and if invited will snuggle on the sofa or bed. He can be a little timid at first with new adults, but quickly loses that. He absolutely loves everyone, gets super excited, but not out of control. He seems to always have a smile on his face.    

Ollie knows many basic commands such as, “sit”, “down”, “come”, “stay” and “wait”. He is working on the others and is quick to learn. He is crate trained, and sleeps through the night. Sometimes, he seeks out the solace of his crate when he is tired. Because of his excellent behavior, has been given supervised “free reign” in the house. He is potty trained and learned to use the doggy door in a couple of days. He loves independence but does need to be reminded occasionally to go out. He is learning to walk properly on the leash and needs to be reminded to focus.He is excellent at fetch, bringing whatever object back quickly,and either dropping it at your feet or letting you take it from him.  

Ollie has done well with our five-year old black lab, benefitting from having a more mature dog to show him what is expected. They play like brothers and Ollie is quick to understand when he gets over excited. We have not seen any indication of prey instinct, only curiosity with other smaller animals and sounds.  

Ollie is a very happy and well-behaved boy. He would be a great family dog. He is young and could benefit from continued training. He has energy and will definitely need an outlet for that. He will do well in any home, including those with children and other dogs. This sweet and loveable boy is ready for his forever home.  “

  • IMG_7583 2

Adopted: Cosmo, a 10 month old Male yellow Labrador, is looking for his furever home.

Here is a bio from his foster home...

"Cosmo is a sweet natured, gentle soul that will need extra time and love to feel secure with his people. He is shy and timid at first, but warms up to people after a little time. Cosmo needed extra time in foster care to build trust and lay some training foundations, and we now believe he's on the right path to be a great companion. With continued love, security and guidance, Cosmo will open up even more in the future.

Cosmo is house trained, and learned to go in/out the dog door as needed. He loves to chase a ball, but isn't alway great on bringing it back. Cosmo is fantastic with other dogs. While he wants to play with our senior, he gives her proper respect and doesn't push it. He has had another foster puppy with him for a bit, and he really loves being the 'big brother'. With dogs, he takes cues well, and generally love to play and curl up with them. He would probably do well with cats as well, he has a very gentle & accommodating to other dogs. He does OK on leash, and needs more work to be fully trained. Working on commands (sit, leave it, etc) are a little more complicated with Cosmo, and he needs extra patience and kindness to understand training is a positive for him.

Cosmo doesn't like the crate, but has learned to be comfortable in a crate/pen combination. He'd prefer to be with humans, and sleeps better through the night where he can see the humans.

Cosmo will make a great companion with a family that is willing to take time, love and patience to continue to build his confidence, with postive reinforcement training."

  • Jack-10

Adopted: Jack, a 3 month old Male Chocolate Labrador, has found his furever home.

Here is a bio from his foster family...

Please read carefully, as Jack has 3 requirement followup appointments with our vet.

"Jack is an adorable puppy, so cute and playful. Like with any puppy, Jack needs a strong leader to guide him through the stages of puppy life, and help him transition to a happy, well adjusted adult. Jack is very smart, strong willed and energetic. He is mouthy & chewy, and needs consistent boundaries to help teach good behaviors and expectations. He is doing very well with house training, with a consistent schedule of outside time. Jack is working through crate training, and while he currently doesn't like being contained, we're working on teaching him the crate is a safe place, as well as a pen. As with any puppy, it will take time to train him to walk on leash, sleep through the night, along with other commands. As he is smart and driven, training is an excellent way to both teach him expectations and work him physically & mentally. Jack is also very snuggly and affectionate, loves his people as well as other dogs.

Jack will do well with a family committed to his training, working on behavior expectations and seeing him through the puppy stage. We're confident with the right plan, Jack will grow into a strong, confident amazing dog."

Jack has 3 remaining appointments with our Vet, that are a part of his adoption agreement. He needs 2 more rounds of puppy boosters, along with his neuter. Before submitting a request to meet Jack, please make sure you'e willing to abide by these conditions for adoption.

Adopted: Stella, a 3 month old Female Chocolate Labrador, has found her furever home.

Here is a bio from her foster home:

Please read carefully, there are future medical requirements as part of the adoption.

"Little Stella is a fantastic puppy. She likes to be with you but she is also content being in a pen with her toys. She hasn’t had any accidents in the house but we also take her out every 30 minutes and reward her when she potties outside. She is already retrieving toys and has dipped her toes in the pool and seems to enjoy water. She gets along with our 3 dogs and is very inquisitive. We have introduced her to a leash and she is a quick learner. She sleeps in a crate with minimal objections, usually just a short howl. Stella is a high drive puppy and as with all puppies will require constant supervision, positive reinforcement and training. She has begun trying to jump on furniture which could be dangerous to her growth plates if allowed to jump down on hard surfaces. We’ve caught he twice and had to pick her up and gently set her down. She has major potential and will thrive in a calm house, with patience and continued training."

Families with small children should be aware that Stella will be going through her mouthy, chewy stage, and need supervision around them at all times to ensure safety.

Stella has 3 remaining appointments with our Vet, that are a part of her adoption agreement. She needs 2 more rounds of puppy boosters, along with her spay. Before submitting a request to meet Stella, please make sure you'e willing to abide by these conditions for adoption.

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

"Gunner is a focused, well behaved, loveable four-year old yellow lab. He is very friendly and seems to instantly love everyone he meets. He loves kids and anyone who will play with him. His favorite game is fetching (preferably with a ball) and would do that most of the day if he could. He is very attentive and eager to please, always doing his best to do exactly what you ask of him. He is active and looks for non- destructive ways to keep himself busy. He can be vocal when overly exited or if he wants to play. This is not barking, but more like excited talking. Gunner knows most of his basic commands and is working on walking on the leash without pulling. His recall is excellent, and he knows his name. He will excitedly run to you if you make it sound interesting. He is potty trained and has had no accidents during his time with us. He learned to use the doggy door, with the help of our lab, and has been self-sufficient since. He loves to eat and drink (like most labs).   

Gunner does well with other dogs. He interacts and is cordial with other dogs but would rather play fetch or tug of war with a person. He has not been exposed to cats or other small animals as we have none. He is crate trained and sleeps through the night without issue. He has been left alone in our house unsupervised and was observed patiently waiting or relaxing in his crate with the door open. He will happily jump up on the sofa or bed, but only if invited.  

Gunner has been a pleasure to have in our home. He is smart, well-mannered and lovable. His happy demeanor, passion for play, love of fetch and attentiveness are his strong traits. He loves to be active, but also understands when it is time to relax and is happy to do so. He will do well in any home, including those with children and other pets. He is looking for someone to play with him and to take care of him as a loyal companion or as a family dog. "

Adopted: Bubba, a 3.5 year old Male Chocolate Labrador, who is looking for his forever home. Here is a Bio from his foster family……..

"Bubba is such a loving dog & just wants attention from his people.  

All you have to do is look at him and his tail immediately wags; his tail wags so fast & hard, so watch out for that! When you talk to him, he hops around like a rabbit.

 

He is potty trained and likes to stay outside a bit sniffing around while he does his business.  
We have put him in a crate when we leave with a treat and he has not whined or cried.   
He inhales his food when he is fed, so probably needs a food bowl to slow him down.
He gets along with other dogs, but tends to nudge the other dog over to get the attention from his people.
He does well with sit & stay, walks on a leash ok, but needs a little more help with the pulling.
Bubba is a little nervous at first when he meets someone, but he gets over that very quickly with some love.  He likes to nap on the couch or the floor and sleep in his people's bed at night & loves to walk around with little stuffed animals in his mouth."

Adopted: Chance, a 3 year old Male Silver Labrador, has found his forever home. Here is a Bio from his foster family…….."Chance is a big, strong, energetic boy that is also sweet and affectionate. Chance is crate & house trained, sleeps through the night, and has had some prior training. He does need a refresher course in not jumping on people, but he's smart and a fast learner. Chance would do well with an active family, and those with small children should be cautious, as he can easily knock you over with his exuberance. "

Happy Tails like Athena's are such a joy to receive!

"We can hardly believe that we have had 2 years with Athena. Athena came into our lives shortly after the very unexpected loss of our 5 year old chocolate lab Josie due to a liver/stomach tumor. Losing Josie was just as hard on her Dobie sister as it was on us.. we couldn’t bear the loss of such a special family member as Josie and neither could her Dobie sister Maddie. We met Athena about 1 month after losing Josie. Athena had so much love to give and wasn’t too sure she could trust there would be permanence in a new home. She came into our home looking to both get and give love but cautious and trying to figure out the new place and new people. It took her time to learn she would never have to go anywhere else and that all her people would always come home to her every day. She is the sweetest girl who just can’t get close enough and can’t get enough hugs and loves. She loves her cat brother Gary who she initially thought was prey and she is learning more and more about playing with her Dobie sister every day. She learned to trust in Maddie’s trust which relaxed her anxiety about her humans leaving the house. She also knows now that if she or Maddie have to leave for a vet checkup they will always be coming back home. She can’t be without her blankey or a toy and is very proud to show them off to all - including Gary the cat. It took awhile to see her come out of her shell but she continues to blossom more and more as she develops more understanding that this is all hers furever."

Adopted: Blu, a 3 year old Male Yellow Labrador

  • Blu

Adopted: Blu has found his furever home!

Updated medical information on Blu:

Upon removing scar tissue from Blu’s head, we have learned he has mast cell tumor, a form of skin cancer. Through several tests and evaluations, we have determined the cancer has NOT metastasized, and remains local to the are it was discovered. Blu is undergoing 2 round of electro-chemotherapy to treat the area the cells were found, and we expect a full recovery. Blu is a wonderful dog and deserves a furever home, as we believe he has a long life ahead of him.

If you’re interested in adopting Blu but have questions about his medical care, please email [email protected].

"Blu is a big playful boy. He gets very excited to see you and can be a bit high energy, but in not too long, he does calm down and will lay around. He does not get mouthy with hands petting him. He is very sweet and a little goofy chasing his tail at times. He seems to do well with other dogs, and tries to initiate play with his foster sisters (who are not playful). 

Around the house, he has not been destructive to any of our furniture, belongings, etc. He loves to be by his humans and will whine/bark a bit if left alone in a pen or crate where he can’t see you. He hasn’t had any accidents in the house either. Due to his size and energy, he would do best in a home with no small children. Im sure he wouldn’t mind a dog who will play with him… or he can take all the pets and attention for himself!"

Adopted: Rocket, a 9 month old Male Yellow Labrador

Adoption: Rocket, a 9 month old Male Yellow Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.Here is a Bio from his foster family……..

"Rocket is sooooo sweet. He came to us directly after being neutered so we have tried to keep him from being too playful, but this guy has a lot of energy. He is as smart as he is adorable. He is beginning to respond to his name and really wants to please. He is picking up potty training very quickly, but isn't quite 100% there just yet. He is as loving, trusting and as affectionate as you can imagine. He's like a piece of Velcro; just wants to be by your side at all times. 

He will need patience with leash training as that seems new to him.

We have a 3-year-old chocolate lab that he gets along great with. Zero aggression, sharing toys together. We haven't had him around any children or cats yet, but I seriously cannot imagine it being an issue given his sweet disposition. He hasn't been in the pool yet (due to the recent neutering), but shows no fear of it and we can tell he'll be an Olympic swimmer.

Rocket will be a wonderful addition to any household, committed to his on going training and development."

Happy Tails: Shadow

  • IMG_8266

What a wonderful Happy Tail for Shadow!

"Last December, we fostered and adopted this old girl, she fit us like a glove. Our last lab passed away last August and we thought no other dog could possibly come close to filling that huge hole in our heart. But…. LVLR to the rescue once again, and we can not believe how lucky we are to have Shadow. She goes on morning walks to greet the neighbors, they can’t wait to get a morning face lick. We added the bike ride because it is too hot for evening walks right now. A few weeks ago, she took a trip to Yellowstone & Tetons with us. She travels better than any of our kids ever did!!! Next is a trip to the Colorado River, in our favorite cove, doggie life jacket in tow. We are just having a ball with our old girl. She’s the best. Thanks for pulling her from the shelter!!!!
