Labs in Need from Individuals

Last updated August 7, 2014 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

Sammie: 6 month old female

Looking for puppy love? Then, meet Sammie! This 6-month old lab mix is great with dogs and kids, and truly just loves to play! She is already crate-trained, and knows how to sit. She also walks pretty well on a leash and has almost mastered down and stay. She is very healthy and up to date on all of her shots. Sammie is the perfect family dog and will provide a lifetime of love!

Click to watch Kenzie's video!


Hi, my name is Kenzie. I am an active, young dog looking for a workout partner and best friend! I love toys, other dogs, people, and life in general! Sports of all kind are great: I love to swim, fetch, and run! I do have some skin allergies and will need a guardian committed to keeping me healthy and comfortable, but I promise that I am worth the extra effort! I am extremely loving and affectionate! I already know some basic commands, ride well in the car, and am house trained. I am currently living in a multi dog foster home and I love playing with other large, active dogs. My ideal home would be a very active family that can keep me engaged in activities all day long! To learn more about me, please contact Jeri at (408) 262-2133 ext. 185.

Murphy: 5 year old neutered lab mix (lab/doberman/shepard) 65 lbs

Hello! My name is Murphy and I am looking for loving owners who will give me just as much love and affection as my mom has over the past 4 years. She is very sad to have to give me up but unfortunately she has to move into a new apartment which is not dog friendly and will not be able to take me with her.

As you can see I am quite a cutie pie, people always stop and tell my mom what a handsome boy I am. Besides being good looking, I truly am an affectionate and loyal companion. I have all the energy of a lab puppy but I am very calm inside the house, I don't bark inside, destroy anything, steal socks or chew anything except my own toys. I also live with two kitty friends who I get along with just fine.

I am crate trained and house broken. It would be great if I can move into a house with an enclosed backyard so I can spend more time outside. I do need to be kept in an enclosed area as I have been known to run off if I'm not on my leash and I am fast and very hard to catch up with. Since my mom lives in an apartment I have been an indoor dog since she adopted me and I sleep either on the side of her bed or on my own doggy bed. Sometimes I even like to curl up in my crate as there is always a comfy pillow in there for me.

I get along with people and love attention. I'll admit I do sometimes get overly excited when I see new faces and I can't help but jump all over them. I am a bit strong and I don't know my own strength, but I mean no harm I just want to show my affection. I was in training classes when I was first adopted but there are still a few commands I'm a little shaky with like 'down' but my vet says that even though I'm not a puppy anymore I am very smart and I learn quickly.

I like other dogs and love to play, even with smaller dogs. The only time I might bark at another dog is if they start aggressively barking at me because I admit I can be a big scaredy cat.

I am up to date on all my vaccinations and am healthy, my mom has taken very good care of me. I am heartworm free and take a dual heartworm/flea prevention every month.

If you are interested in me please please contact my mom, she would be happy to have you meet me or answer any of your other questions. She is devastated that she has to give me up and wants to find me the best home she can.

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.
