There are times in the year when our rescue looks quiet, often because we have Labs going through medical care that take a little longer to become available for adoption.
January and February 2017 were one of those times.
We’d like to introduce you all 7 little puppies. Born to Giselle, a wonderful 18 month old female yellow Labrador, the litter of 7 (4 females, 3 males, all yellow) will soon be available for adoption. Giselle was rescued from a rural shelter, and with the help of several volunteers, transported to our local vet for a normal medical evaluation. Unbeknownst to all, this bundle of Labrador love was carrying her own little bundles of love!
A pregnant Labrador and litter of puppies are a first for Las Vegas Labrador Rescue, and we couldn’t be more excited to share this story with everyone.
On February 5th, Giselle gave birth to 7 healthy puppies, 4 females and 3 males. Ela, Dallas, Kayla and Summer are the females; Mack, Rowdy and Bubba are the males. With detailed medical care, lots of extra hands and more love that can be quantified, Giselle and her puppies have thrived since birth, and are now almost 6 weeks old. There are lots of bouncing, happy tales to share. Please take a look at our channel, to see video from birth to today. LVLR Puppy Channel
The 7 puppies nor Giselle will be available for adoption until after April 17th, 2017. LVLR is committed to the health and well-being of these Labs, and will take as much time as needed to ensure Giselle and her puppies are given the best foundation for successful adoptions. As always, our first concern for any of our Labs is finding the right home for a Lab, finding the right family committed to the needs of a given Lab. 10-12 week old puppies require a greater commitment of time, energy and training for them to develop into the Labrador they’re meant to be, and it is crucial for any prospective adopters to understand the needs of a young Labrador.
How exciting! LVLR has 7 puppies (4-Girls/3-Boys) who are ready to meet families that are approved to adopt and committed to our process. Before submitting your meet & greet request, we need you to be informed, understand & agree with the protocols & adoption policies with these puppies, as they are different from our standard protocols. Please note the adoption fee is $500 per Labrador puppy. Following directions and paying close attention to details are a prerequisite for anyone wishing to adopt 1 of the 7 puppies. While this is all extremely exciting, all 7 of these puppies will require a much higher level of supervision, care and thought than our older Labrador Retrievers. LVLR’s intentions are to make the entire process fun and exciting while maintaining our core policies, standards and values. At the end of the day, it’s always about the Rescue Dog. We sincerely appreciate you wanting to adopt one of our wonderful Labrador Retrievers. Please read everything carefully BEFORE submitting a request, as LVLR has separate, specific requirements for the adoption of these puppies.
UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming interest in the puppies, we will not be accepting any more new applications to adopt one of the litter. We will continue to accept adoption applications for any available Labs outside of the the puppies.
