Labs Available for Adoption

Lab adoption fair Last updated 5/30/2016 9:30 AM

Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Rescue (GGLRR) places over 400 Labrador Retrievers each year in the greater Bay Area (424 in 2011)!  See the Recently Adopted section or Happy Ending Stories for examples of Labs we have placed. We typically have between 5-15 rescued Labs available for adoption with several available Labs added/removed each week from the list below.  There are usually more males and yellows/blacks, with a variety of ages from occasionally puppies through adults and seniors. Some in-demand Labs are adopted before they are posted on this website by our pre-approved adopters.  If you are willing to donate, you can join our pre-approved adopter program to receive early email notification about GGLRR Labs before they are posted on the website (the pre-approved adopter program is not available for the dogs in the Monterey area).  An explanation of the adoption procedure is contained on the how to Adopt page. We also provide a listing of Other Labs available for adoption from individuals or shelters.

Labs Available from GGLRR

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.

Cash: 1-yr-old male black Lab 60 lbs

Watch Cash's video by clicking on the link above the pictures.

Show me the money… and I will show you a wonderful young dog. Cash is very reluctantly being surrendered by his family as they are unable to give him the attention that he needs and deserves. His current owners describe him as “happy, playful, gentle, and loving.” Camping and hunting, yup, Cash is all in for that. In his short life thus far he has proven himself to be a pretty darn good bird-dog hunting pheasants. He has a soft mouth and happily retrieves balls and toy -- still working on how to reliably drop the toy (or bird) into your hand. He could also use a refresher on leash as he pulls a little bit. He can be a bit excitable (in a very friendly way) when he first meets people, but calms down quickly. Who needs stocks or bonds or mortgage-backed securities… when you have CASH.

What Cash’s Rescue Rep says: Cash is current on his vaccinations, but still needs to be neutered and microchipped. He is house-trained and crate-trained (sleeps in a crate at night). He gets along fine with other dogs (he hangs out with another 5-yr-old lab each day) and people (he’s lived with infants and teenagers). Not sure how he is with cats. Cash is currently located in Martinez.

  If you are interested in Cash, call Rescue Rep Dave, 415-686-4248.

MISSY: 14 years young Black Female Lab 50 lbs.

Digger: 9 years young Black Male Lab 75 lbs.

If you can foster until adopted please let us know! We would love them to get into a foster home! If you may know anyone who would be interested in adopting them or fostering them please pass along their posting!

When I am old and grey….

My step may be slower. I may not hear as well. I may not see as well. I may not feel as well.

But….. My love will be the same. My devotion will be the same. My appreciation will be the same. My tail will still wag. My heart and soul are grateful for all that you have done and will do for me….

When I am old and grey please do not throw me away. By Missy & Digger

Golden Gate Lab Rescue got a call from a lady in the Manteca area; her tenants of 20 years had to move out of state for a new job. The owners looked for a place to stay where they could take their dogs but could not find one. They moved around 6 weeks ago and told the landlord they had a plan for the dogs but then they just did not come back for them. The owners did come back three weeks ago and the husband mentioned to the landlord that maybe he should just shoot the dogs. The landlord told the wife to please do not do that, that she would find something for them. (The son did come over and take the youngest of the three labs.) The landlord reached out to some other recue groups and then found GGLRR. She called us and we let her know we could take both of the dogs. The landlord drove the dogs to GGLRR’s boarding facility in Petaluma and took care of some of the vet care for Digger.

I have volunteered for GGLRR over 20 years now and have come across a variety of dogs. All the dogs are special but when dogs like Missy and Digger cross your path it reminds you why you volunteer all the time you do. To give the dogs that have been thrown away a second chance to life, a chance to not be taken out and shot and to give them a chance to have a loving ending to life no matter how much of their life is left! Missy and Digger are very special dogs and do not judge the people who have mistreated and left them but still wag their tails and smile when people come to them.

We would love the dogs to be adopted together but feel they could be separated to the right situation.

What we know about the two dogs:

Gentle, loving, patient, happy, sweet, trained, caring, affectionate, friendly, loyal.

Did I say best friend?

Missy is 14 years young:

She loves to play ball. (You bounce it for her and she will get it and return it to you for more. Once she is done she will lay down on her bed and place her ball between her feet.) She is a very gentle, loving girl. Once she gets to know and trust you she is YOUR best friend. She loves to ride in the car, she will come when called and she can be a little shy with new people. Missy gets up and will walk around but her favorite thing is to take a nap on her new bed. She loves it when people sit with her and brush her and will fall asleep in your arms. She seems to have lived her life outside in a dog house or in a dirt hole in the yard. We have her now at our boarding facility and she uses the door to come in and out of her kennel. We would like a home with limited stairs. Missy on Wednesday will have everything done. Shots, heartworm test, microchip, blood panel, urine culture, manicure, facial, haircut and will go to her new adopter with a clean bill of health.

Digger is 9 years young:

When you bounce the ball for Missy, Digger will get the ball and drop it at Missy’s feet so she can have the ball. He is a very gentle, loving, patient, kind, sweet boy! He will listen to what you ask of him. He loves to ride in the car, comes when called, will sit when asked, knows how to shake hands, fine when giving him a bath and just LOVES to be with people. He seems to have lived his entire life outside in a dog house or with a bed on the dirt. We have him now at our boarding facility and he uses the door to come in and out of his kennel. Digger on Wednesday will have more done at the vet. The landlord took him in and had his eyes treated, his ears treated and a skin fungus treated. He will have a neuter, shots, heartworm test, microchip, blood panel, dental, mass removed on his side and tested, fecal and will go to his new adopter with a clean bill of health.

Both have had baths and will be groomed.

We do think they have not been treated that well as if you raise your voice or if you go quickly towards them they will cower as if they have been hit.

They are located in Petaluma.

We would love a home that is not too active if the dogs stay together for Missy. For Missy not many stairs.

If we split them up Digger can go to a more active home and he is fine with stairs.

  If you are interested in making these two wonderful dogs part of your family call Rescue Rep Liz at 415-613-6374 or email liz@jobshopsf.com

(Please email me if you are interested in both of them or just one of the dogs. If we separate them we would want them to be adopted around the same time.)

Cowboy 16-month-old male yellow Lab 76 lbs

Watch Cowboy's videos by clicking on the link above the pictures.

Better be wearing your spurs and tie that six-shooter tight to your thigh, cause this fine buckaroo is going to take you for a ride. This surrendered stallion took the Hollister animal shelter by storm… and Lab Rescue was fortunate to lasso, hog-tie him and drag him north in search of a new herd. He is currently more spunky than all get-out – a “one-dog stampede” – a real I-got-me-a-catamount-by-the-tail-and-I-ain’t-lettin’-go kinda attitude. He is quite responsive when bridled, but will still take you out for a bucking-bronco walk round the corral. Anxious to engage and wrassle with other dogs, his all-muscle attributes will require much more than a city-slicker, tin-horn, silk-stockin’ adopter to provide the appropriate influence. Afraid he’d take to cats and squirrels in a bad way, like stink-on-poop, so you best not have any such small critters about that you want left untouched. May also be bit tooo much for young folks. We thinks he is going to require a strong ranch hand to keep him in line, but Cowboy is going to turn out to be one fine lookin’ and fine actin’ labberdoor reetuhreever. Yee-hah!

What Cowboy’s Rescue Rep says:

Cowboy is neutered, current on vaccinations, and branded (I reckon I mean, microchipped). He is spending some quality time (can you say “time fer some of that-there diss-eeee-plinn action”) with one of our top dog training wranglers. Cowboy is located in Petaluma. Come ready to kick up some dust, if you think you are interested in Cowboy. Caution: saddle and chaps not included.

  If you are interested in Cowboy, grab your lariat and call Rescue Rep Dave, 415-686-4248.

Max: 10-year-old male black Lab/Shepherd mix 110 lbs

Watch Max's video by clicking on the link above the pictures.

Big Max! Mega Max! Doggus Maximus. Rumors are that Max was the result of a breeding a California black bear with a Labrador retriever. This unique experiment resulted a big (originally 130+ pounds) furry mammal that has an affinity for humans and picnic baskets, but has a dislike for cats and motorcycles. His former owner (who surrendered him to the Berkeley city shelter) advised that “Max has lived with small kids. He can be reactive on leash with other dogs [Lab Rescue has seen no such behavior] but does well at the dog park and goes there once or twice a day for an hour.” A neighbor of Max’s reported that she has seen Max at the dog park & said he is very happy and active there; she has seen him at home and said he was anxious there; she said the house is small with a very small yard and two young children.

What Max’s Rescue Rep says: Max is neutered, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. He does need to lose 15-20 pounds. Walks pretty well on leash – a bit out of practice, but very responsive. Max seems to get along with other dogs, but prefers humans. Max’s foster advises that he has a very affectionate side – that is one big lap dog. Not a friend to cats or squirrels however. He is located in Redwood City.

What Max’s foster says: “Max is doing well. He's snoozing next to me as I write this. He has interacted very well with dogs of various sizes at the dog park. He says "Hi" to them and then prompts me to throw a ball for him to fetch. On a neighborhood walk yesterday, we walked past a cat in a neighbor's driveway and he watched it for a moment, and walked on, not even a bark! No guarantees it would always be that way. However, he barks at squirrels and some birds. He also seems to dislike loud, annoying noises, such as motorcycles, trains, or sirens. His response is 4 or 5 barks as the noise passes. So far, so good with this wonderful guy! Probably more to learn about him. In our house he is a sweet, well-mannered, big snuggler, and is a pleasure to have around! I am working hard at getting his weight down.”

  If you are interested in Max, call Rescue Rep Dave, 415-686-4248.

Nina, 6 month old female yellow puppy (special needs)

Watch Nina's videos by clicking on the link above the pictures.

Sweet Nina is a very special girl looking for a very special home. A lucky set of coincidences helped Nina find her way to her current foster home in GGLRR and we know those same fates are guiding her to a perfect forever home. Could you be the one?

Nina has a genetic disease called Labrador Myopathy (aka Labrador CNM). The disease causes muscle weakness and atrophy which typically stabilizes around 12-18 months of age. Nina is currently doing well in our foster home and Labradors with milder cases of CNM have lived long and happy lives. We are hopeful that with a little bit of luck and the right home that Nina will continue to thrive in her own special way.

Nina is a playful, spunky puppy with a loving and expressive Lab personality. While her disease slows her down, it certainly doesn’t stop her. Watching Nina enjoy the simple pleasures of life – going outside on a sunny day, frolicking in the grass, and investigating the latest scents, will help you remember to “stop and smell the roses” in your own life.

Comments from her foster mom:

Nina is a special dog - very affectionate and people oriented. She gets around mostly walking in her halting fashion, but sometimes crawling when she gets tired. She is playful with a ball and with toys. She is curious about the outdoors and my dogs. She is house trained and sleeps quietly in her crate at night. The ideal home for her will be a one story home with minimal hard surface floors as it is easier for her to walk on carpet (she does manage the couple of steps into the house). If you’re looking for the love and companionship of a young dog without the high energy and exercise requirements, Nina is your girl.

Comments from her rescue rep:

We are looking for a very special home for Nina. We would like a home with an experienced dog owner where someone is around most of the day. Other friendly dogs in the home are fine as Nina enjoys their company and they seem to motivate her to do more. Nina is looking for a special owner who will love her as she is and who can provide a rich and quality life for this very sweet girl.

  If you think you might have what it takes to offer this very special girl a very special home, please contact Rescue Rep Katy at 650-796-3596.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives.

Click to watch Dixie on the run






Dixie: 9-year-old female yellow Lab 85 lbs

Watch Dixie's video by clicking on the link above the pictures.

Don’t ever ask a lady her age! Cause this one will prove you wrong… whatever you guess. Dixie recently came racing into a Central Valley shelter as a stray -- took one look at the place -- and raced right out into the welcome arms of Lab Rescue. She is the life of the party and will win your heart over in an instant. Better be careful cause as soon as she gets out of the pool she will want to come over and give you a wet hug. We are just getting to know Dixie but she seems to like walks (although she is a bit out of practice), and is absolutely delighted to receive the attention and affection of her humans. She even knows a few commands and was quick to learn how to use a dog door. We think she’s had some practice in her past. She has been a bit overbearing and pushy with other dogs, and that has resulted in some growling and other unacceptable responses, so her behavior with other dogs needs to be closely and properly managed.

What Dixie’s foster says: Dixie is definitely house-trained, sleeps well through the night, and has easily settled into our routine. She likes to be where the people are and seems to understand normal conversation such as “come on” or “let’s go here”. She definitely knows “sit” and sort of “down”, but she’s not consistent yet. Her one incorrigible trait is that she is a terrible car-rider -- even when crated in the car she frets, paws, and barks obnoxiously! She has started to get a little growly with our dog Molly -- it seems to occur over a toy or perceived scrap of food. She doesn’t seem to know how to play without being dominant or aggressive.

What Dixie’s Rescue Rep says: Dixie is spayed, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. She could probably lose five pounds (but can’t we all). Dixie is located in Los Altos where she is hanging out with a younger female yellow lab. She will need continued leadership to help her overcome her snarliness towards other dogs. She may do better in a one-dog home. No idea how she is with cats.

  If you are interested in Dixie, call Rescue Rep Dave, 415-686-4248.

Chopper and Sabbath: 11 yr old neutered Lab brothers ~85 lbs

Watch the boy's video by clicking on the link above the pictures.

Chopper (yellow) and Sabbath (black) are English Labrador brothers from the same litter. They have lived with one owner since they were puppies. The owner is relocating and cannot take the dogs with him. Chopper and Sabbath have been together their whole lives and we would greatly prefer to adopt them out together to the same home.

These sweet boys are loving, playful, active and still very young at heart. They are a healthy weight and love to play fetch and swim. They pull a bit on leash when first starting on a walk because they are excited to get out, but then settle down and regularly check in with their human. They are good with kids, have lived with cats, and are fine with other dogs we’ve had them around.

The owner has been busy with work and young children and hasn’t had much time for Chopper and Sabbath the last few years. The dogs lived outside with their owner but they are now quickly adjusting to life inside the house in our foster home. They are attentive to humans and eager to please. We would like them to go to a home that will include them in activities of daily life and give Chopper and Sabbath the love and attention that they truly deserve.

These fun-loving boys are eager and ready for their next adventure. They’d make great companions for walking in the woods, strolling on sandy beaches, or exploring the neighborhood. You can enjoy the natural wonders of the Bay Area with your loyal companions by your side, and in the evening you can snuggle by the fireplace with lots of Lab love and kisses. Why not double your pleasure and double your fun?

Chopper and Sabbath aced their well check exam, are heartworm negative, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. They are currently located in Livermore.

  If you would like to make these awesome boys part of your pack, please contact Rescue Rep Katy at 650-796-3596.

HUNTER: 2 year old year old yellow male neutered 74 lbs.

One of our volunteers found Hunter on Craigslist. She wanted to make sure Hunter was adopted out to a home where he would be part of the pack and not just stuck in the backyard, so she reached out to the owner. The owner had to give him up as the city told the owners they had too many dogs and Hunter had to go. The volunteer went and picked up Hunter from the owner and this is what we know about him.

From the foster mom:

Hunter is a very handsome boy. He is house broken, knows basic commands, uses a doggie door and is fine with other dogs. Hunter is a spunky 2 year old – loves to play fetch, retrieves and brings back the ball and is obsessed with playing tug of war. Although he can be a typical 2 year old lab, he quickly calms down when inside the house. He will bark when someone comes to the door but quickly calms with commands. Hunter has been an inside dog all his life. He has not been crate trained and does not like being in a crate. I am working with him on this but he is fine when left in the house alone with my 2 other labs. He is a messy drinker (what lab isn’t) but Hunter will put half his face in the water bowl when he drinks. (He does love the water.) I live out in the country on acreage and take Hunter for a few walks a day off leash with my other 2 dogs. He does tend to wander, as he has always been on a leash with his past owners, so being off leash with lots of new sniffs is all new to him. He does pull when on a leash but responds to commands. He has never had a correction collar used on him and he does well without one. (If needed a gentle leader can be used for him.) He responds well to commands. I make sure he knows I have treats in my pocket when we go on walks. He is NOT a hunting dog, (see photo of him under my desk when he heard a gunshot) – nor is he an outside dog - he is afraid of gun shots and loud things like a lawn mower. At first Hunter was leery of my two 8 year old labs but quickly warmed up to them and cries if he can’t find them. Hunter is by my side24/7 and I feel he would be best suited with someone who can spend a lot of time with him and is home all day – not someone that works. I do not know how he is with cats. He is fine with a small dog but wants to play and given his size, he could overwhelm a dog that is too small. He plays good with my labs but they are 8 and not interested in playing too much as Hunter can be a bit rough with his play.

Hunter is a bit unsure of things and he will bark at new things, including people. When he is told no he will stop. We feel Hunter did not get out much from his previous owner and he needs a home that will work with him on his confidence.

We want a home for Hunter that can work with him on his confidence, a home where someone is around a lot of the time, a home with other dogs is fine, we are not sure about cats, a home that can get him plenty of exercise and a home that will continue his training. A home with kids would be fine as long as the kids are 10 and over.

Hunter is a very healthy boy. He is neutered, he has all his shots, he is on regular heartworm medication and we will get him microchipped.

He is located in Escalon.

Dixie 18 month old female black Lab/border collie mix 55 lbs

Watch Dixie's video by clicking on the link above the pictures.

I really don’t remember my first year being a dog. They tell me I was found on the streets of Fairfield City in October 2015, just wandering… I have no recollection of how I got there or where I came from. I remember being picked up by this big guy in a blue uniform. I remember being driven to the local dog shelter. I’d lost my wallet – so no ID. What happened to my cel-bone? I do remember being paw-printed and given a dog-breathalyzer – which I passed. That’s it. Two weeks in some smelly jail cell with other prisoners barking and yelling. I had no idea what the charges were against me. Geez. “Get me outta here!”, I thought. Finally, a few nice people bailed me out… and off I went to a new home to hang with a family I’d never met before. Maybe I was in the witness protection program… I just don’t know… Not sure why, but I don’t have an affinity towards some men. And I also get overlay agitated and anxious when I see other dogs – I think it’s cause I am not sure how to socialize or play with them – maybe I should see a therapist or do yoga. Something happened in my past to make me this anxious – but I just don’t know what it was. My new family is going to have to be very patient with me – and committed to working with me on my anxieties. I’ve been with a professional dog trainer for several months now and have made huge strides but will need a family committed to my ongoing training and rehabilitation.

What Dixie’s foster/trainer says: Dixie is a very smart and trainable dog who loves to work for treats. She enjoys learning new things. She really enjoys practicing her silly tricks like sit pretty, spin, the touchpad, mixed in with all of her basic commands. She would love to get involved in some kind of sport for dogs like rally or competitive obedience training. This would really promote confidence and healthy bond with her new owner. She is not a barker or whiner and is always very patient in her crate -- she really loves her crate and feels very secure in it. Over the past two months I have seen tremendous improvement with Dixie… regarding her anxiety when passing another dog on a leash or encountering strange people, especially men and unusual looking people. She has gotten so much better. I bring her to the park every day where there are multiple soccer games going on with lots of men, children, joggers, dogs, etc., and she still gets nervous but recovers fairly well and is learning to trust that life is not such a scary and threatening place after all. It would be really great if the person who adopts her has an easy-going well-balanced dog for her. Whoever adopts her must be committed to her training and ongoing rehabilitation. She will thrive with guidance and direction so that she can continue to grow in her confidence and trust in her handler.

What Dixie’s Rescue Rep says: The Dixie queen is spayed, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. Dixie gets along with cats. In the past, she has tended to herd other dogs and small children – using her border collie skills – this can be unsettling for kids and those dogs. She needs signif exercise as an outlet for her energy and anxieties. She’d be a great dog for an active family with older children or with another playful but calm/confident dog. She is located in Pittsburg. Dixie’s new family will be required to complete a multi-session training regimen with Dixie’s current trainer in the East Bay… and be willing to follow the protocols for Dixie’s continued rehabilitation... and the rewards will be incredible.

Two Happy Dogs









Madden and Raider 10-year-old male yellow Lab (66 lbs) and 12-yr-old male chocolate Lab (73 lbs)

Watch their video by clicking on the link above the pictures.

Time for the Silver-and-Black to step up for two of their own. Madden and Raider came to Lab Rescue after spending six months alone in a vacant house after their owner died unexpectedly. A related of the deceased visited the dogs every other day to feed and water them, but they’ve been without walks, dog socialization, or other human contact for a very long time. Finally the relative called us to re-home the dogs. Given these conditions, we found both dogs to be absolutely charming – and starved for attention. We do consider them bonded (understandably given all they have been through) and we want to adopt them out together.

What Madden’s and Raider’s Foster says: Raider and Madden are adorable, sweet “siblings”. The two have been together at least for 4 years when they were adopted from a shelter. They will do everything together. Sleep, eat, drink, play and follow us around the house! When separated they very much miss each other and it’s a big party when they come back together! Raider shows signs of an 12-year-old dog. His movements are slower. Madden is more active. Both walk well on leash, with Madden occasionally pulling. We have given them some toys but they have not taken to playing with them. They both respond quite well when called and take orders very easily (“no”, “go lie down”, “come here”) —they were clearly well trained dogs. There has been no barking, except when someone rings the doorbell. They used to go onto furniture in their old home, however on the first night we told them “no” and they have not tried to go onto furniture again. They sleep together in the living room. They should go to a home with minimum/no stairs as Raider has a torn ACL and struggles with stairs

What Madden’s and Raider’s Rescue Rep says: Both dogs are on pain-killer/anti-inflammatory medication for arthritis and other issues. They are up-to-speed on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped. Madden and Raider get along great with all people and dogs; not sure about cats. They are currently in Burlingame.

Pepper: 2-year-old female black Lab 75 lbs

We are not taking any more calls for Pepper.

Pepper came to Lab Rescue from the Hollister shelter where she had been picked up as a stray. From the abrasions around her torso it appears she had been tied up at some point with a rope around her waist – these wounds are now healing nicely. Hard to believe anyone would lose this dog as she is an absolute delight. A little spice… a little spirit… and that is why she is Pepper. Quite a bit skittish at first, she is coming out of her shell at her foster’s and doing great. Lots of walks, socialization with unfamiliar people and other dogs… and Pepper is figuring it all out…

What Pepper’s foster says: Pepper does not know “sit” yet, but walks beautifully on a leash… and will even walk at your pace. When visiting with neighbors, she lays down quietly and happily takes in the social affair. Speaking of quiet, she has not barked at the doorbell nor at other animals (even when dogs were barking at her). But she can bark as she has tried to “talk” to me; I have yet to figure out what we were discussing – but I am working on it.

What Pepper’s Rescue Rep says: Pepper is spayed, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. She enjoys being with other friendly dogs. She is located in San Jose. (Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Shelby: 3-year-old female chocolate Lab 75 lbs

Watch Shelby's video by clicking on the link above the pictures.

We are not taking any more calls for Shelby.

Found roaming the streets of Pinole, young Shelby came to Lab Rescue via the Contra Costa County shelter. She is an engaging, energetic young pup with a bright future (we hope). Once in our foster care, she revealed her Dr. Jeckyl/Ms. Shelby side – yikes! Obedient, affectionate, and attentive with humans, she revealed an aggressive side when seeing and meeting other dogs. This unacceptable behavior resulted in Shelby’s placement with a professional dog trainer where her rehabilitation has showed great progress -- but continued close management is required.

What Shelby’s trainer says: Shelby has a very fun easy-going wants-to-please personality. She has lots of food drive and loves to play fetch with toys or balls, which makes her fun and easy-to-train! Shelby is house-trained, rides well in the car, crate-trained, will “sit”, “down”, “heel”, go to a “place” and “stay” on command. Shelby would do best in a home where the dogs she interacts with are ones she sees often or every day. She has a hard time trusting new dogs and can get overwhelmed. She is now ok with being around other new dogs (with proper oversight and supervisor by her attendant owner) but if the other dogs are excited and get in her face she will snap to keep them away. Once introduced a couple times to another social dog, Shelby is fine. In the house and with people, Shelby is great. She has been good around livestock and cats when out for a walk or playing fetch. So if you enjoy late night walks or live in a rural area and like to go out for a quick fetch session then snuggle on the couch, Shelby would be a great companion for you!

What Shelby’s Rescue Rep says: Shelby is spayed, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. She is ideal for a rural home with lots of room to run. City living with lots of contact with new unfamiliar dogs is not on Shelby’s dance card. She is not a dog park dog. Shelby’s adopter will be required to attend training with a professional dog trainer to learn the proper skills to manage Shelby and enable her to thrive. A refundable “training commitment” deposit of $250 will be required with her adoption. Shelby will require an owner with long-term commitment to lead and supervise Shelby, but will be rewarded with one incredible dog. She is located in Watsonville. (Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives.

Luna: ~5-6 year old spayed female yellow Lab, ~ 68 pounds

We are not taking any more calls for Luna.


Are you looking for blonde, beautiful and cuddly? Do you like to play? How about a nice long walk in the park or even a jog? Do you have the time to hang out with me, play with me and wear me out? Then I might be the dog for you!

My family adopted me from a rescue adoption fair. The rescue group (not Lab Rescue!) had me in a crate that was too small, and baking in the sun. They took me home and made me part of their family, but their other two dogs weren’t happy that I had joined the pack, so they pick on me constantly. Sadly, my humans decided they were concerned with my safety and contacted Lab Rescue to help me find a new home.

What Luna's Rescue Rep says:

Luna is a delightful dog! She’s a young 5-ish years old, with a lovely yellow coat and lots of energy. She loves to go on walks, and she’s a great cuddler. She gets along well with other dogs (the other two dogs at home are the problem, not Luna) and with cats. She does jump up when excited and she has the height of a gazelle when she jumps up for her dinner (see video). She gives gentle kisses and has lovely teeth!

Luna is housebroken, crate trained, and prefers sleeping in her crate at night (probably to keep those other dogs away!). She knows some commands: Sit, Stay, Down, Come, Fetch. She takes treats pretty gently.

We’d like Luna to go to a family where she is the only dog; we think she’s had to deal with cranky canine pack members for long enough! She can get her canine contacts through play dates, the dog park, doggie day care, or friends with dogs that come to visit; she doesn’t need to have a resident dog, although she would do fine with one that is nice to her. Luna needs an active family, who will take her on long walks (an hour or so) EVERY day. She would probably make a great jogging partner too. We would recommend that Luna’s new family take her to training, to help her learn to walk on leash without pulling, and to calm her jumping on people when she’s excited. This should be a fun and bonding experience for Luna’s new family. Her new family can include children over the age of 8 (due to her size and energy level and her tendency to be a little mouthy when her hind quarters are touched). Given that she is crate trained, and views it as her safe place, we’d like her family to commit to continuing with the crate for her. We’d also like a family where someone is home most of the day; Luna is not used to being alone all day, so a family where the adults work full time will not work for her.

The most important thing we want for Luna is an experienced, loving, committed home that will give her the time and training she needs. An active family that can consistently give her the exercise she needs is a must; a tired dog is a good dog!

Luna is spayed, current on vaccinations, heartworm free and on preventive, and micro-chipped. Luna is located in San Jose. (Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Adoption Pending (no new calls being accepted on these Labs)

GGLRR wants to make sure people have the latest status about Labs they may have seen on our website so have a category called "adoption pending" which is just like home sales pending, e.g. no new offers being accepted but still working through the details with the expectation that it will close successfully. Most of the time, our "adoption pending" turns into "adopted", so will only accept calls in the rare case when a Lab is moved back to "available".

So why would a Lab adoption be "pending"? When GGLRR places a Lab in a home, we want to make sure it's a great match! Thus, we have a trial period to find out whether all is well with cats and other pets welcoming the new family member. Usually in just a day or two, the adopter knows it's clearly going to work out, but we take the time to be sure. We also move Labs to "Pending" when we've received so many calls about a particular Lab (especially puppies!) that the Rep knows that one of the callers will be a match and doesn't want to get other people's hopes up by accepting more calls.








Rusty: 10-ish year old soon to be neutered, male chocolate Lab, ~ 65 pounds

This sweet, gentle dog was found abandoned somewhere in Los Banos. He was, to be it mildly, a bag of bones with some fur. Yes, there was lots of fur missing from this sweetheart’s body! We snapped him up and took him to the vet for evaluation. All of his tests came back fine - heartworm negative, senior blood panel fine – but he did have an ear infection, which we are treating. Next came addressing his skin; he gets medical baths twice a week and he’s on an antifungal, prednisone and antibiotics to get him past his “itchies”. Already, after just a few weeks, his coat is growing in nicely and he’s clearly feeling better. He’s put on a few badly needed pounds already (no problem there!), and is just the nicest boy.

We don’t know for sure how old he is; he looks like an old dog but he moves really well and he has beautiful teeth! He’s clearly not been well taken care of, but he’s going on regular walks and slowly building up his muscles and his stamina.

But enough already about his physical condition; this boy is the sweetest Lab on the planet! He’s wonderful with other dogs, safe loose in the house (uncrated, although he has been crated before), has no food or resource aggression, gives lovely gentle kisses, and is a delight to have around. He’s totally housebroken, doesn’t seem to have any commands, but he does walk well on leash. He’s a very calm, mellow boy; nothing seems to faze him, at least that we’ve found so far.

Rusty is not yet neutered and we’ve delayed giving him his vaccines until he is healthier, but Lab Rescue will take care of both when the vet gives us the go ahead.

Rusty will be an easy dog to love and to care for. We’d like him to go to a home where he can hang out with his humans most of the time. His humans should be prepared to continue working with him to gain weight and build his physical fitness through regular walks and a healthy diet. His new family will also be willing to continue working on his skin issues, which are most likely allergies or yeast or possibly both. A home with other dogs would be fine. We don’t know what Rusty would be like with cats.

What Rusty’s foster says about him:

Rusty is easy to please and is happy to be in the same room with me. He gets along well with my younger male lab and the many other dogs he socializes with daily at the park. Rusty has a healthy appetite and is quickly building up his stamina and strength. He is housebroken and sleeps through the night in a dog bed in my room. He is truly a pleasure to have around.

Rusty will be neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm free and on preventive, and micro-chipped when he goes to his new home. Rusty is located in Mountain View.

Bailey: 1+ year old spayed female Lab/Boxer mix, 63 pounds, is now available for adoption! See her new pictures!

Update on Bailey: Bailey’s leg is now on the mend!

It appears that the fabulous vet that worked on Bailey has been able to save her leg! There still remains some reasonable rehabilitation work, but she is definitely headed in the right direction, and is ready to go to her new forever home with a family who can continue her rehab and amazing progress!

This little cutie pie was out walking with her elderly owner when something attracted her attention and she bolted around the corner. Her owner heard her get hit, and then she ran back to him…which is truly amazing, because her leg was severely injured, so much so that the emergency vet told her owners that the best course of action was to amputate. The owners were devastated, and because they were financially constrained, decided that the best course for Bailey was to euthanize her. The vet could see that Bailey was a sweet wonderful young dog, with the possibility of a great life even without the leg, so she called Lab Rescue. We immediately transported Bailey to our wonderful vet, who, after several weeks of hard work was able to save her leg! Bailey is in a wonderful foster home where she is getting the medical attention and rehab that she needs to get back to normal.

Bailey is a typical puppy, with lots of energy, but she’s a very smart girl and getting along really well with her older foster siblings, who tolerate her kisses and play with her toys. She may be a Lab mix on the outside, but her soul is pure Lab: sweet, eager to please, smart…and that tail! She has the Lab tail that can clear a cocktail table in a single blow! Everyone who has met Bailey – the emergency vet, our vet, her foster, the rescue volunteers who are helping with her recovery – every last one has commented on what a great girl she is! And we want to find the best possible home for her, one that will commit to continuing to work with together with Lab Rescue until her recovery is complete.

Bailey’s rehab currently consists of regular daily walks of about 15 minutes. She needs the leash walking training that any puppy needs so that she will walk nicely and not pull. She is mostly using all 4 legs throughout the walk, and is able to put weight on the inured leg. She still has a few bandage changes in her future, but we hope that she’ll move past that soon.

What Bailey’s foster has to say about Bailey:

She’s been a wonderful houseguest and has quickly learned the daily routine in our home with our two labs and parrot. She’s a very good girl and aims to please. Being as smart as she is, she’s already learned “down” and she’s working really hard on “stay”. She’s excited when meeting other dogs and people and we are working with her on how to properly greet others so she needs someone who will continue this. She has love oozing out of her that she wants to share with you from the first blink in the morning until she finally fades at night. She is a puppy and still needs guidance in this wonderful world as well as someone who will work with her on leash skills. She is an absolute sweetheart and you can feel the love inside her when she gazes at you with those amazing brown eyes.

Although Bailey’s recover is not yet complete, we are looking for a home that can help her through the next stages of her recovery as well as the next stages of her life. This will be a home that will patiently give her the right amounts and kinds of exercise she needs until her rehab is complete, and that will give her the obedience training a puppy needs to develop into a healthy, well behaved Lab. Bailey is very respectful of the adult Labs in her foster home, and we think she would love to be in a home with an adult dog to show her the ropes.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs.

KALI: 3 year old spayed yellow female 60 lbs.

We are not taking any more calls for Kali.


Kali was purchased from a breeder when she was 8 weeks of age. The couple who had her wanted a cute lab puppy but did not do the research before buying her on what it would take in owning an active dog. The couple worked fulltime, they then had a baby and Kali would jump up and knock the baby down. They could not deal with Kali so they chained her up in the back yard when she was 6 months of age. They would feed her, they would let her play with the neighbor’s dog and she would get to play with the cats they owned. GGLRR saw her for free on craigslist and reached out to the owners as Kali was not spayed. We spoke to them about her and we decided we could take her into our program to get her out of her situation and to make sure she would not turn into a breeding dog.

We now have Kali in our boarding facility and she will go to a foster home on Wednesday, this is what we know about Kali:

We tracked down her vet and the office assistant was friends with this family. She said they brought her into the vet when she was 4 months old but Kali had not been back to the vet since. That they did reach out to try and deal with her puppy behaviors but they did not follow up. Kali was house trained at one time and at our boarding facility she is clean in her kennel. When she first came to us she did not want to sleep on the inside part of her kennel but she now will go inside and sleep on her nice bed at night. She does have a lot of energy, she will listen to what you ask of her; she wants to do the right thing. She has not been exposed to the world and she is cautious of things that she first encounters but once she knows all will be ok, then she is your best friend. It took her 2-3 days to understand the boarding facility is a nice place for her. She gets to play with other dogs but she really is more focused on playing ball. Kali is a dog that will play ball for hours! She is a dog that will need a couple of hours of exercise a day. She does ride well in the car, she likes to swim, she would be fine with another dog in the home and she is fine with cats. We would recommend Kali go to a home with older kids as she does jump up to try to give you hugs. She will need leash training as we are not sure she was walked on a leash that often. We feel Kali should not be a city dog as too many things will overwhelm her. Kali is a wonderful dog that needs to build more confidence and realize the world is a nice place.

Kali has been spayed, has her shots, had a well check, is heartworm negative, is microchipped, had her ears cleaned and was given many baths for all the fleas she has on her.

She is located in Petaluma.

Max: 2-3 year-old male black English Lab

What Max says: I’m a handsome, happy boy who just wants to be with my people—which makes it hard to understand why my last owner left me alone at the shelter. I didn’t like it there, it was noisy and made me nervous. Luckily a nice lady from Lab Rescue spotted me, made a few calls and now I’m living the good life with my foster mom up in the Santa Cruz mountains, exploring my big new yard, meeting all the neighbors and their dogs and getting long belly rubs. There’s so much to do that I’m even starting to forget about my itchy ears! My foster mom takes me on lots of walks and sometimes we even go in the car—I love life!

What Max’s foster says: Max is an owner surrender from the Santa Cruz shelter and appears to be a very well bred English Labrador. He is not very tall but has those adorable thick English features we love: a big blocky head, wiggly otter tail, massive paws, luxuriously silky coat and a joyful labby smile full of sparkling white teeth. He’s still very much a big puppy who’s just starting to settle into a daily routine.

Max has very good house manners and quickly learned to respect boundaries like the kitchen and front door threshold. He’s not a counter surfer but like most puppies, will steal a fuzzy slipper or shoe if you’re not careful. He enjoys his nylabone and seems to just be learning about how to play with other toys. Right now, he prefers to play by interacting with people, but suspect he will eventually grow into toy play, too. Oh, and the hose¬¬–Max loves to play in hose water!

Max took to his crate immediately and sleeps there at night and when his foster mom is away from home. He’s quiet in the crate and in the yard too.

Max is a really a sweet, happy-go-lucky boy who will benefit from an experienced home and positive-reinforcement training. He’s still learning his name and doesn’t realize his own strength or size, so basic obedience and socialization will be a top priority in helping him to become a well-rounded family member. Max especially loves our male renter so we think he will be great with both men and women. He spent an entire afternoon with a child, so we suspect he’ll be great with older kids who are big-dog savvy, too.

Max has met several neighbor dogs (male and female) and really wants to be social, but is not very experienced with greetings yet. He seems to be more comfortable with larger, well-balanced dogs. He is a little too interested in our 2 resident cats for now but longer term, he may be workable. He’ll definitely need close supervision with other dogs (and kids) while his post-neuter hormones settle a bit.

What Max’s Rescue Rep says: Max is up to date on vaccinations and is newly microchipped and has stunningly good looks. He has a healthy bodyweight and is the epitome of a Lab-lovebug. Max appears to have allergies but it's predicted that good food and attention will make a huge difference. The ideal home for Max would be with an experienced dog owner who can provide the training and socialization he needs to become a good canine citizen, including a securely fenced yard.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

CLOVER: 1 Year Old Spayed Female Yellow Lab Mix - 65 Pounds

We are not accepting any more calls for Clover.


Hi there, my name is Clover. I am a young female lab mix who was lucky enough to escape a very rural Central Valley shelter. Someone docked my tail when I was a pup so you won't have to worry about a crazy lab tail knocking things off your coffee table! I am a sweetheart of a girl and very much enjoy spending time with humans. I have spent a little over 4 weeks with a dog trainer who has taught me how to be a confident girl. I have been crate trained and am a good girl when left in my crate. I am also house trained. I ride nicely in the car during rides. My wonderful trainer says I am now more expressive than she has ever seen me, very tail waggy (fast, excited wagging), more confident and barking from time to time. She’s says I am coming along nicely! What I will need from my new family is continued training and slow introductions. I am a sensitive girl and won't immediately be ready for busy dog parks and beaches, but over time, once we know each other, we can work up to those places. I will always look to my humans for guidance and am ready to be a member of someone's family and share my love! I recently attended a GGLR adoption fair and all of the volunteers were so impressed with how sweet and snuggly I am. There were lots of people, kids, and cars going by and I was very much at ease with all the love I was getting. A family with older children and no other dogs would be most ideal for me. I have been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and am heartworm negative.

Note: Clover's adoption will require an additional $350 training deposit. This deposit is refundable once you have completed training together and provide proof of completion. This deposit is to ensure that the time and effort that has been put into her training will be continued in her new home.

From the Trainer/Foster: She's doing really well, much more confident. She needs more work building her confidence but I think if initial introductions with other dogs are structured, she will do well. She's walking nicely on leash, settled in a crate, does nice dog greetings on leash, has a nice sit and is overall a much more confident dog. She struggles with the down stay and her recall will need long term work - it's a completely new concept for her and she's an explorer. She won't run away but she also won't come back 100% when called. But she's in an entirely different place than when she arrived.

Clover is located in San Pablo. (Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

LEILA: 1 ½ year old spayed black female 70 lbs.

We are not taking any more calls for Leila and all calls received so far will be returned


Liela’s owner moved to Ohio and could not take her to their new home. (She also felt it was best to give her up as her husband did not have the patience for a young dog. He would lose his temper with her.) The owner left her with her sister who thought they would be able to care for her. A few things have happened over the last two months including caring for an elderly parent, so they just do not have the time for another young dog in the household. They came to the sad decision that is was best to reach out to GGLRR to find her a new home.

What they have to say about Leila:

Leila was purchased from a breeder in the Sonoma area and they got her at 8 weeks of age. She has always been an inside dog and part of the family. She is a very smart girl and really wants to please. She knows: Sit, down, come, fetch, drop, leave it and when told “No” she will stop what she is doing. She loves loves to go for car rides and will stand up to see what is going on but will settle down after a few minutes. She loves to swim, they took her to the dog park on a regular basis to keep her socialized with other dogs. They crated her at first but now she sleeps on her dog bed at night. They are able to leave her alone in the home and she is good but may grab things off the counter if left in the open. Leila has been walked on a correction collar and needs better leash skills. She gets along with all dogs, had respected our house cat and the two outside cats and has learned to leave our parakeet alone. She has been around kids of all ages and does well but she will jump up when excited so she may knock over a small child.

We now have Leila in a foster home that has three labs and two older kids:

The foster said she is doing great. Leila is really sweet and has tons of puppy energy. She plays really well with the other dogs and is very responsive to corrections. She did not want to go in her crate last night but once in she was fine. Needs some leash work and a bit of a counter surfer. She is going to be a great addition to any family!

Leila has been spayed, has her shots, had a well check in Dec 2015. GGLRR got her a well check, fecal and a microchip.

What we want for Lelia – someone who is home and does not work full time, someone that can work with Lelia on her leash skills, someone who will lead Lelia and not have her take over, someone who is up for 1-2 hours of walks, runs, hikes, play time with Lelia. We want her to be an inside dog and part of the pack. She can be a bolter so we must have a secure yard! Someone that will continue her training. If you have young kids we want them to not be scared if she knocks them over – a dog experienced family is preferred.

She is located in Concord.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Comet: yellow neutered male, 6 to 8 years old

Watch Comet's video by clicking on the link above the pictures.

Comet was an owner surrender in Bakersfield when his owner had to move out of state and could not take Comet. The owner was a good parent because he neutered Comet early, he maintained his vet visits and Comet was definitely a family indoor dog. The owner didn’t let Comet play with many dogs very often. The owner actually paid for two weeks of boarding for comet while he waiting to come to the Monterey/ Santa Cruz area to be adopted.

Here are the foster family’s comments about Comet: Comet is one big lovable boy, he’s a whole lot of LAB!! Comet is housebroken and in a very short time has learned to use the doggie door. Comet knows and responds well to basic commands, including sit, lie down, stay, off, and leave it. Comet is a laid back lab in the house, and is beyond his hyperactive puppy years. He enjoys a good cuddle, belly rub, and long naps. He will fetch in the yard, and plays with squeaky toys. He is not a chewer.

Comet enjoys being with his humans, and will follow you around the house and yard. He greets humans very well and does not jump. He gives licks and kisses to strangers who accept them, but won't insist. At dinner time, Comet waits patiently for dinner to be served and until your command. Comet tested our boundaries and limitations by trying to make himself at home on the beds and sofa without an invitation. When assertively commanded "off", he got back on the floor. He has learned to respect the furniture.

Comet will crowd doors and gates to get through ahead of you, so a very clear threshold ritual must be observed. His human must claim the space around the doorway, and wait for Comet to sit and calm down before leading him through. Despite his large size, Comet can easily clear 3-foot high logs and leap into the back of a compact car, so fences must be high enough that he doesn’t try to jump them, not that he has tried.

Comet is good on leash while walking, jogging, and running, but the human must always take the lead. His foster has worked with Comet to stay abreast on wider trails and walkways, or behind on narrow ones, and never in front. Comet needs and wants a good pack leader. Comet now responds to voice commands to stay abreast or behind while moving forward, and continued practice should keep it a joy to exercise with him on leash.

Off leash, Comet has fair voice recall, but needs more training and familiarity with his human to become good at it.

Comet needs a human to diligently work with him when greeting other dogs. His foster is working with him to be a good socialized doggie, but there is some work ahead. Comet is an intense, abrupt, overeager greeter. It's not aggression, just too much Labrador all of a sudden. When on leash, Comet will be over excited to greet other dogs. When off leash, Comet will sprint and charge right up to other dogs. Comet's greeting is often interpreted incorrectly by the other dog so he needs more socialization. Many dogs get startled or fearful when he approaces, and will give him a clear warning to back off and that they do not like his greeting. After that, Comet will get along fine with dogs with appropriate behavior. A professional behaviorist has assessed Comet’s reactions to dogs and she reported that his reaction is over exuberance and excitement and that he just needs someone to work with him on this behavior.

Vickie: Black Lab, Female 55 pounds 5 to 6 years old

Watch Vickie's video by clicking on the link above the pictures.

Here is what her foster has to say about her: Vickie is a sweetheart who has a lot of of love to give. She has been adaptable, loyal, and well behaved. She loves to play, take walks, and is food driven which is a great way to train her. She is with me 24/7. At home, she is very observant while hanging out on the deck towards the cars and people. Does not bark at anyone or at my housemate’s cat. She has only barked if another nearby dog barks at her. She prefers to sleep inside her crate over her large dog bed at night voluntarily. I keep her crate door open at all times so she may roam freely. At work, she is excited as she is with someone at all times. She will settle down and get comfortable as you start to settle down to begin work. She is well behaved during car rides.

Please get to know her more by watching her videos and pictures on the two provided links. I will continue to update it with content over time.

MASON: 3-4 Year Old Yellow Male Lab Neutered 80 Pounds

Mason was a stray in the Easy Bay and was picked up by the Humane Society of the North Bay. He has been at the shelter for a month. The shelter staff really liked him, he passed all their temperament tests with flying colors. He came in with a collar and a microchip that was not registered but Mason sat there waiting for his owner to come and no one showed up to claim him. A volunteer with GGLRR saw him on Facebook and made the call to see if they wanted our help placing him. WE went over met Mason and knew he would be a great dog for our program.

What we know about Mason:

Mason jumped right into the car and went right into the transporters crate with no issues. He was very calm and quiet in the crate for the ride to our boarding facility. He knows sit, fetch and will take treats nicely from your hand. We currently have him at our boarding facility and he plays with other dogs, does not seem to be a barker and is very clean in his kennel run. He is a strong dog and does have a lot of energy.

We would want a home for Mason that can give him plenty of exercise and continued training. We think Mason would be fine in a home with another dog but we are not sure about cats. We would suggest Mason go to a home with older kids as he can knock down a small child.

Health:

Mason is in great shape and he is one happy BOY! Mason has been neutered, has all his shots, is heartworm negative, had a fecal test, had his ears cleaned, is microchipped and had a well check. Mason is located in Petaluma. (Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

BENTLEY: 6 year old neutered black male lab / hound mix 95 lbs.

The owners on Bentley need to find him a new home as he has allergies to wheat, yeast and most ingredients in human snacks. With her young children it is hard to keep human snacks away from him. They have owned Bentley since he was 8 months of age. They really love him but they need to keep him away from the kids and he wants to be part of the pack. They describe him as very mellow and laid back. He has the personality and energy level of a true hound. Bentley is an inside dog, he is housebroken and he is crate trained but they do not use a crate at this time. He stays in the house during the day and sleeps in the house at night. He is rarely left alone for long periods. Bentley gets out to play with other dogs at least once a week and he has been socialized with other dogs on a regular basis. He has gone to obedience school and knows: leave it, sit, stay, down, drop, come and off. He will come when called and have pretty good leash skills. (He can pull at first as he gets excited.) Bentley is wonderful with kids and the kids in the home play with him on a regular basis – the kids are 1, 3 & 16. He likes to go for car rides, he does not get car sick, he does not swim or attempt to escape from the yard. When he meets you he does not jump up to greet you, he does not chew on non-dog items, he does not bark at strangers or bark or whine when left alone. The two things Bentley does not like are fireworks and getting his temperature taken at the vet. If he is having an infection he does not like his ears or paws being touched.

When we met Bentley we noted:

Bentley is a very low key, good natured dog. He should lose around 10 pounds, he is very tolerant of cats and ignores the barking dog next door. He is ok on a leash but he can have that fascination with scents when on a walk.

Bentley is a very healthy boy. He is neutered, he has all his shots, he is on regular heartworm medication and we will get him microchipped. He is doing well with his allergies at this time as he is not eating people food.

He is located in Vacaville.

MISSY: 7 year old non-spayed yellow female lab 75 lbs.

(GGLRR will work with the adopter to get Missy spayed.)

We are not taking any more calls for Missy.


Missy has been with her current family for 5 years. She was rescued from the clear lake area. The family loves her but they feel she deserves a better home then they can provide at this time. They have three kids under the age of 8 and they have another dog. The family works full-time and then they are busy with kid’s activities on the weekends. Missy was trained to hunt when they first got her. (Her family does not hunt with her but she has the obedience.) She was trained with hand controls and knows: sit, stay, down, heel, fetch, take it, leave it, drop, come and off. She is housetrained and sleeps inside the house at night and she usually is in the yard during the day. She has been chewing the kid’s toys and will dig out of boredom. Missy’s owners currently exercise her by throwing the ball – which she can do for hours! Missy loves other dogs and never has had any issues with any dogs. She lives with a cat currently and a French bull dog. Missy’s next favorite thing to do besides playing ball is swimming! She loves to go for car rides, she does not jump up when you meet her and she is not a barker when left alone. They do take her to doggie day care on some of the longer days. She have great leash manners but does pull when excited but she would pick up quickly with a refresher course on leash walking.

Her owners say she loves to fetch, swim and just loves to be with you!

Missy is a very healthy girl. She has all her shots, she is on regular heartworm medication and we will get her spayed and microchipped.

She is located in Windsor.

HUEY: Chocolate Male neutered 4 years old


Huey is a handsome, polite, playful chocolate lab. He is very affectionate and is wonderful with other dogs. He's around 4 which is great because he's still full of energy and super healthy but isn't a crazy puppy who steals socks or eats shoes.

He LOVES to play fetch. He's incredibly fit and athletic. He would make a wonderful hiking buddy, running partner or just companion to play ball. He has good recall and doesn't jump up - most of the time. He needs work on the leash.

He is currently living with 2 other labs, one of which is a very annoying 2 year female and he just lays on his back and let's her 'get him' and they wrestle and play and have a famous time.

He's crate trained and doesn't bark. He is great with kids. His foster family has a 7 year old and there is a lot of activity in the house hold and he takes the chaos in stride. He loves to go for rides in the car - he will happily hop right up into your truck or car and has no anxiety whatsoever. The kid in the house wants to make sure that whatever home he ends up in he has lots of balls since he always wants to have one in his mouth.

Huey is being fostered in the Santa Cruz area. (Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Mackie: Black Female - spayed 6 years old 50 pounds


Mackie was surrended to a high kill shelter because the children begged their mom to get them a new puppy. How anyone could have dumped this lovely senior gal makes no sense to us. She's a total lovebug. She's a great size and is very well behaved. She's wonderful with children. She can be left home alone for a few hours with run of the house and is totally trustworthy. There are many good things about adopting a more mature Lab such as no chewing, digging, etc.

Mackie has a very cute smile, takes treats very gently and can be counted on to sleep all night and take a few naps during the day although she has plenty of energy to take long hikes and could make a good running partner. She loves to go for rides but when you're ready to watch a movie or the daily news will cuddle with you on the couch and watch TV. She also gives sweet little kisses but only if asked to do so.

One of her favorite tricks is to grab one of her toys or a sock if you've left one lying around while you're fixing her meals and dance around with it, tossing it in the air and catching it. She's very good on a leash and doesn't get distracted by othe dogs or squirrels etc. She might even be a good apartment dog as she's small, disciplined on the leash and doesn't get into mischief if left alone.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Cal: Neutered Black Male 1 year old


Cal was found in Hollister by a Cal Fire Crew who took him to one of Lab Rescue’s foster family who are active in the Firefighters community. He was very happy, clean and friendly and so they were confident they would be able to find his owner quickly. After days of searching for the owners it was obvious that no one would come to claim this cute, fun, special guy.

His foster family has three Labs of their own and he is great with them. He is also fine with the family cats. He’s not a barker but may whimper a bit if he wants attention. He loves to be with people and is very gentle for his age. He may put his arms up around you as if to hug you but isn’t pushy and will get down as soon as you tell him to do so and is definitely a cuddler.

We would love to see him go to a home where someone can spend time with him. Although the foster family does not have small children we feel he would be fine with children.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Charlie: 10 months old neutered yellow male 62 pounds


Charlie was rescued from a shelter where he was left when his family moved. Lab Rescue saw his handsome face and rescued him immediately. And what a handsome dog he is. But there's so much more to this guy than just his looks. He's a great puppy and with that comes all the energy of a puppy.

Charlie is being fostered in Santa Cruz in a family with two other Labs and a young child. He's great with kids always hoping they will throw the ball for him as he LOVES to retrieve. He will do a big happy dance when someone shows him something to retrieve. He's not particular about who throws the ball for him as long as someone does. He's definitely not fanatical about it though. He loves to go for rides and is quite well behaved in the car. He is not a barker either.

Charlie is a young Lab so he will need exercise and attention and training. He already knows sit and down and his foster is working on his leash training.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Frieda: Frieda Bonita Bell 8.5 Year Old Female Chocolate Lab Spayed 90 Pounds AKC Registered
Current on vaccinations and health checks. Has had regular check ups all her life.
Diego: Diego San Rio Carmelo 8.5 Year Old Male Chocolate Lab Neutered 120 Pounds AKC Registered
Up to date on vaccinations, up to date on all health checks. Regularly vet check ups all his life.
We would like them to be adopted together.

The family is moving to another country due to the Dad's work assignment and they cannot take the dogs with them. As one might expect the family is totally heartbroken to leave these wonderful, loving, trained and well behaved dogs but they have no choice. They trust Labrescue to find the very best home for both of them. These are truly exceptional dogs.

They helped raise the children in the family and are excellent with babies, toddlers and adults alike. They are perfect with other dogs and live with cats and are great with them. They have perfect house manners and currently stay in the house for 8 hours daily. Labrescue would like to find them a home where they wouldn't have to spend so many hours every day alone. Both are also crate trained although they no longer need to stay in a crate.

They run two miles every day. Both like to retrieve but Frieda likes to do so just a little bit more than Diego. Both love to swim in the ocean and love to run free at Carmel beach. They are both very calm, gentle, sweet dogs. They have perfect recall so can easily be walked off leash in safe areas.

These two are very special dogs who have belonged to a very loving family and lived together their entire lives. Lab Rescue would really like to see them adopted together and in this case two is easier than one!!!!
