Fosters Needed

Last updated 9/22/2022

GGLRR foster homes are often full when we find special Labs who we think deserve a chance. These Labs are in the process of getting into our program (evaluation, vet visit, etc) and having a foster identified gets us one step further in finding a forever home.

Find out more about about fostering with GGLRR and contact the rep listed if you are interested in helping in this key way. These Labs will be added to our Labs Available page when they are ready for adoption.

Foster needed for HUCKSLEY : 6 month old male yellow Lab ~70 lbs not neutered (3 photos attached)


Background: Hucksley was purchased from a Craigslist ad at 4.5 months. Due to extenuating circumstances through no fault of his own, the owner cannot keep him.

What Their Rescue Rep Says: Hucksley is an adorable big sweet puppy.

Unfortunately, he has not had any training so he is like a little puppy in a large body. He is partially housebroken but will on occasion have accidents. He needs to be crate trained and monitored and this will resolve in no time.

He is not going on any walks or receiving any form of exercise other than sometimes fetching the ball. Consequently, he has a lot of energy to burn off. There is a very large female German shepherd in the home and the two of them like to play.

He is used to being in the home all day with a little yard time. Due to boredom he will chew on non-destructive items in the home and dig in the yard. On the positives, he is treat motivated and will sit for a treat but needs to learn to have a soft mouth.

Hucksley gets excited when he sees anyone and jumps on them. He is mouthy and quite strong so any kids in the home should be teenagers. He will try and counter surf. No cats in the home please.

Given the training that every Lab puppy needs, he will make a wonderful dog for someone as he is a happy, sweet boy who wants to please.

Medical:Hucksley has had his rabies and Distemper series vaccs. Lab Rescue will coordinate his neutering and getting him chipped.

If you are interested in fostering Hucksley, please email Sandy at

Please note our service area: GGLRR adopts to the greater San Francisco Bay Area.

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.
