We received another awesome Happy Tail. This wonderful family adopted 2 dogs from us at the same time - Monty (a 10 year old) and Duke (a 5 year old). When going through the adoption process they told us that they wanted to give Monty all of the love that he deserved in his remaining years, however many of them he might have left. We are thrilled to hear that the new Reckley brothers are enjoying love of their recently found Sisters, Mom and Dad!

"Monty and Duke have settled in nicely with our family. They both get along great and add so much fun to our daily lives. Monty is still full of life - he LOVES to play fetch and go on daily walks with us around neighborhood. Monty prefers to be with us - not necessarily in the same room but definitely doesn’t want to be left alone. He is very obedient and aims to please - a very sweet dog.
Duke is lovable in all sense of the word. He snuggles with our girls during “movie” time and follows any one of us around the house. He has no favorites but he does seem to favor our #2 daughter Anna slightly more than any of us. He also made nice friends with Grandma on her recent visit;) We had to make sure she didn’t take him home with her. Duke LOVES the great outdoors and the little kiddie pool.
Both Monty and Duke have brought much joy to our family and we feel privileged to be the forever family and home for these guys."
We received this awesome Happy Tail from Tucker's family. To submit your Happy Tail please email email@example.com
"Dear Las Vegas Labrador Rescue Team,
We want to thank all of you for being so helpful in helping us find the next member of our family! Tucker has been wonderful. He is very much a puppy still, but that is part of what we love about him. He is so well behaved, and gets along great with our other dog Kimber. They are constantly playing and ruff housing all hours of the day it seems. Tucker loves giving hugs to anyone who will accept them and loves taking a dip in the pool with these hot temperatures. He is always making us laugh like when he loves to wake us up in the morning by laying right on heads until we go for a walk. We are so happy to have adopted him and thank you all for your service in saving wonderful dogs like Tucker!
Doug, Michelle, Kimber & Tucker"
We received this awesome Happy Tail from Tony's family.
"Tony has been a wonderful addition to our family! He has so much energy and loves to chase his ball at the park! It only took a couple days for the cats to get used to him and now they’re on their way to being best buds! He discovered the pool isn’t such a bad place to be, especially when chasing and retrieving his ball. He loves his walks every morning and is generally happy to stay by our sides and follow us around the house.
We are so blessed to have him and thank the LV Lab Rescue for all their time and patience while we/he selected our family
Heather and Brady"
A great big THANK YOU to Las Vegas Labrador Rescue Staff and Volunteers for everything you do for our Lab Families.
1 year ago today we got a wonderful addition to our Pipes Family, Cypress Blaze (AKA Rosie). Cypress did have abandonment issues in the beginning due to being dropped off at the shelter at a very young age however she has learned that she is one of our children and we would never abandon her. We love her dearly and could not imagine a day without her.
She has been a great sister to her Chocolate Lab brother Timber and sister Mossy Oak. They enjoy the great outdoors together running, swimming and of course chasing the tennis ball. She has not mastered the art of returning the ball directly to us but is improving daily. I think she likes playing keep away better!
I want to especially thank Victoria and her husband for being wonderful foster parents to our baby for the short transition period. Victoria did say she loved to give hugs and kisses, and did not bark. Well the hugs and kisses are still given out to us daily by Cypress but her quietness has been broken by the teachings of her brother and sister. She expresses herself now! What a great personality!
This all would not of been possible if it wasn't for your wonderful organization. Many thanks and much appreciation.
We just love receiving updates on our rescue dogs. We received this amazing update from Odin's (formerly known as Grizzly) forever home.............
"It's Kat and Omar were so excited to send an update on Odin (previously Grizzly)
Odin has been doing amazing! We couldn't have found a more perfect addition to our Family! He's such a huge guy he steals the show wherever we go. He's so loving and patient and a quick learner. Odin loves loves loves meeting new people and new dogs. He's so eager to say hi to everyone at the dog park. Our black lab Chubbs has become his bestest friend! They love to swim together and play together, although I think he lets her win all the time. We always wonder if he was a hunting dog because he loves to chase birds and watch them on TV. Our lovely TV has drool kisses because when he sees any dog, horse, cat, or bird on TV he has to say hello with a kiss and a few barks.
At a 133lbs he's the worlds biggest gentle giant. We are very thankful for him and all the happiness he brings to our home. I can't imagine what our family would be like without Odin.
Thanks so much LVLR for all that you do!!!”
We received a wonderful update from Toby's forever home. He is now named Kona and it looks like he has a wonderful home. Here is an update from his family......
"Kona has become a central member of our family. He LOVES his daily walks and we have started running with him in the mornings. He completed a mile and a half run today. He has learned several commands (sit, stay, come) and can flip a treat off his nose into the air and catch it in his mouth. 🙂 He LOVES to snuggle and have his belly rubbed. He thinks he is a little lap dog, even though he is almost 60 pounds. He is the PERFECT dog for our family and it is hard to remember what it was like before he joined us almost a month ago. Thank you for helping us find each other. We are eternally grateful!"
Terri, Jim, Emily, and Evan
"Next month will be one year from when we first met Winston at the Pet Expo. The first meeting was not what we expected with him growling and viciously trying to attack our other dog. I was reassured by the awesome staff of Las Vegas Labrador Rescue that this could be due to all the extra stimulation of the event. They said to give it one more try at our house where there is a more calm environment. That night the president of the rescue himself and the foster parent brought Winston over. The meeting went spectacular with him at one point cuddled up to myself by the back door (I melted).
This year has been amazing with him and he has definitely become part of the family. He has never once since the event become aggressive but has become a gentle giant and loves to just go where ever the family is. Soon after he was adopted, we enrolled him in Sit Means Sit Dog Training. This training has changed our lives and opened our eyes to what “obedience” really is. We use to think it is a dog who is house trained and walks on a leash well, now we know that it is much more, even joining the family on a walk through Bass Pro Shops “off leash”.
Like a true Labrador Retriever, he is awesome with the family, even with our three year old who is not always the most gentle with him. Although he is much bigger than when we got him at six months old, he st ill acts like a puppy when it is time for a family outing. We could not imagine our lives without this special boy in it.
We loved our experience with the Las Vegas Labrador Rescue so much we even rescued another.
Thank you for our furever Lab!!!"
