Labs in Need from Individuals

Last updated November 16, 2017 Other labs in rescues and shelters

Whenever possible, GGLRR will post Labs for individuals who must find a new home for their pet. Dogs on this page have not been met and evaluated by GGLRR and are not part of our program. We only provide this listing service as a courtesy for a month to Northern / Central California Labs and assume no responsibilities for the dogs posted on this page. Please contact if you have a dog you would like us to post on this page and provide the posting as you would like it to appear on the page.. Please note since we are a Lab Rescue, we only list Labrador Retrievers or Lab-mixes that appear to be mostly Labrador.

We welcome donations from those who benefit from our maintenance of this web page.

We encourage you to check PetFinder or Adopt a Pet for labs that may be available from other rescue organizations. For additional dogs in need of new homes, please search:

Labs and Lab Mixes Available from Others

Derby: 2 year old black male lab mix

DERBY is a 2 year old, 70 lb. black male lab mix. He is a sweet, bouncy, happy, easy going boy who wants nothing more than to play and hang out with his people. He loves belly rubs, ear rubs and hugs! He does ok on leash (working on this), knows sit, sleeps in a crate, rides well in the car, is house broken and uses dog door. Derby loves his dog friend Roxy...they play on and off all day. He loves his toys; he’s very careful with them. He's learned to play tug a war, fetch and what we call POUNCE. We get on the floor and hit the floor with our hands, Derby will jump around doing the same thing with his front feet.. He thinks it the best game ever! At 2 years old Derby is still a pup who will need continued training, supervision and exercise. Derby would love a home with another dog.

Barney: Yellow Male, 5 Years

BARNEY is a 5 year old handsome 74 lb yellow male. His family does not have time for him and he is being returned to rescue so he can find a home with a family he can hang out with along with a doggie buddy or two. Barney gets along great with teenage kids and other dogs but he gets lonely when left alone and would do best with a doggie buddy when the family is not home. He is house trained, does not jump on the furniture and sleeps quietly on his doggie bed at night. He walks well on a leash and loves car rides and swimming in the lake retrieving sticks. Aside from his dislike of cats, Barney is very social and just wants to be with his people. If you want a great companion you must come and meet him!

Zephyr: 4 year old neutered male black Lab Mix

Zephyr is a handsome, friendly, smart 4 year old black lab/german shepherd. He weighs 60 pounds, is neutered and vaccinated. Zephyr is house trained, crate trained, knows how to sit and shake with his paw. He loves to go swimming. Zephyr would prefer to be only with adults. He doesn't want to be with kids, other dogs or cats. He has a high prey drive and will go after smaller animals. He is high energy so would be a good dog to take jogging or to do agility. He loves to be trained and likes the attention. He is part german shepherd so he is protective of his house and property. He is a loving dog who needs an experienced, strong owner. Zephyr is located in a foster home in San Carlos, CA.

Sara: Black Female, 1 Year

SARA is a pretty 1 year old black female who weighs about 67 lbs. She loves to be with people and would do well with other dogs she can play with. Still a young pup, she has energy to join you for a brisk walk, hike or even a jog. With treats she can be motivated to learn basic house manners; however, we always recommend a training class for a young dog and the adopter. Sara appears to be housetrained. Due to her young age we recommend a home with kids 12 and older.

We Need Your Help!

Even with all our volunteers, it costs a lot to save and place 300 Labs a year. There are costs to bail-out these dogs from the shelters along with vet and temporary kennelling costs when no foster homes are available. Please consider a donation of cash, vehicle, or even your time through volunteering.
