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 ecdugdale@gmail.com 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.

Labs and Lab Mixes Available from Others




1-2 year old Labrador mix

This extremely loving lab mix needs a forever home. She is calm but plays a little with my small terrier. She is great with kids and cats. She growls a little when meeting new dogs but eventually gets along with all of them. I can only have one dog so she will go to Animal Services if I don't find a home or foster for her soon. I love her as much as my own dog so I am trying everything to keep her from Animal Services. She is female, not spayed and I am not sure of her age but people think she is 1 to 2 years old. (NOTE: Lab Rescue strongly advocates spay/neuter and requires it for all dogs we place).

Please call Jennifer at 925-231-5880 or email Jennifer.fitzgerald@live.com if interested.

Lucy: 3 year old Labrador mix

Lucy is a 3 year old, adorable black lab and (we think) border collie mix. She has been with us since she was just 8 weeks old. She is very affectionate and loves to cuddle. She is an amazing retriever of balls and a great catcher of frisbees. She is a great companion when hiking, camping, running, or just walking on the beach. She loves her people so much, that she is not a flight risk at all. She is very smart. She is a very good and well behaved dog. She does not chew up shoes, pillows, or anything else in the house or car when left alone. She is house trained. She does well with other dogs and people when out in public or on a walk. She can be a little shy and nervous at first, until she gets to know you. However, she does not like little kids when they are in the house, they make her nervous. She has not bitten anyone, but she will growl at little kids if they are in the house. She does not bark a lot, except when someone comes to the door, which we see as a positive. She is a great dog and we wish we could keep her. She deserves a loving home.

Please call (415) 305-9076 or email ms.seva@gmail.com if interested.

Naia: 6 year old Labrador mix

Naia is a 6 year old Labrador mix. She is spayed and vaccinations are up to date.

I have had Naia since she was 8 weeks old. I have to re home due to personal, unforeseen reasons. Unfortunately, she is under socialized and does not get along with most dogs. I believe that with proper training and introduction it can be a possibility. At one point of her life, she used to do well with other dogs ( she lived with 3 dogs in the past ) . I don’t know what happened other than a small dog attacking her.

Naia is very loyal and protective to her people . She’s skittish around people and it’ll take a little for her to warm up to someone but once she does she’ll be the perfect companion.

She loves squeaky toys, loves to play fetch, go on walks, go swimming, loves to eat, loves car rides.

She can be both energetic and also pretty mellow. She loves to hangout wherever we are.

She hasn’t been around kids other than my son and nephew.

She is crate trained and potty trained.

Something that Naia hates are fireworks and thunder.

Rhett: 4 year old, neutered male lab mix

Rhett is estimated in the 4 to 5 year old range and is about 55 pounds. We believe he is mixed with a Ryukyu-ken dog which is a breed of dog that is indigenous to the Ryukyu Islands of which Okinawa is a part of. He is a beautiful tan/brindle color and he is really great dog that would do well in most homes. He loves children and has been fostered with a child or two for his entire time in foster care. He would likely do better with older, sturdier children (8+) because he's still working on house manners and not jumping up on people. He is good with most other dogs with a proper introduction but does have some resource guarding with his crate (and other dogs). He is good with cats also (being fostered with 2).

Rhett's vaccines were just updated, he is neutered, micro-chipped and we treated his heart worms last summer (June/July) and he is now heart worm negative.

Rhett does know some basic commands and loves to go on walks, however he does pull a fair bit on the leash. We've tried several different harnesses with him and he's now using a 2 Hounds Freedom Harness which seems to slow him down. He could benefit from working with a trainer on his leash skills and meeting dogs while out on walks.

We Need Your Help!

Even with all our volunteers, it costs a lot to save and place ~250 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.
