Meet Buddy, a 1 to 2-year-old purebred yellow male Labrador puppy man. He is a young, active, and athletic boy who needs lots of fun exercise like walks, hikes and play time. He loves other dogs and will be a fun fellow to help grow up!
This cutie pie is on the larger side and has an absolutely darling face and expression. He is a very affectionate and loving boy who likes to be pet and snuggled.
Someone paid a lot of money to buy this guy from a breeder and when they found out that he was no longer a tiny little baby puppy and required exercise and training, he was relinquished to a backyard where he basically got very little attention and no training.
Buddy has a willingness to please and really would like to become a wonderful family companion. He loves to walk on the leash and likes to walk right by you. He gets excited though and pools. Sometimes he pulls hard. So he is best walked on a training pinch collar. He responds well to correction on the pinch collar and is easy to walk when one is used correctly.
But he would love to have a home where someone would spend some time with him and take him on a nice hikes and walks. He could be a wonderful dog and companion and could even come to work with you once he has settled into his routine.
We think Body would like to have another playful friendly canine companion although he will probably do fine as your one and only provided that you work from home, or have a dog walker, or have some other plan in place well he acclimates into his new environment.
NO kitties for Buddy as he chases them and they do not like him at all.
But he came to us from a high kill shelter after he was turned in as a stray. No owners came to claim him. We can’t imagine why because he is such a sweet and adorable Labrador!
Buddy would love to have a nice training class or obedience class with his new owner. He would like to continue working on his commands and leash work and we think he would do great in a class. Because he is a strong puppy, we require a training deposit of $150 to be refunded to the new adopter once Buddy completes at least a basic obedience class.
Because he is so young and still a puppy, we will be taking a training deposit to ensure that his new owners are committed to meeting with the trainer to get them a good start.
Since this guy is still a young pup, his new home will want to provide him with lots of chew appropriate toys such as Nylabones, Kong’s, and other fun chewy toys. It’s also important for young dogs that their owners put things like cell phones, remote controls, and other things away. Sometimes young dogs do not know the difference between a toy and something that is important to their owner.
This guy will need plenty of exercise before he settles into his home. This is typical for his age and we think he will really enjoy his walks, hikes, and other activities with his new owner.
Buddy is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and microchip.
If you have been approved having had your in-home interview, please feel free to contact email@example.com
Buddy is fostered in the Tijunga area.
Meet Walker, a darling bon bon of chocolate love. Walker is a smaller adorable purebred English Labrador. He has a very dark chocolate coat and beautiful conformation. Walker is short and stocky and blocky and has an otter tail and nice round cat paws. He has a good reach or neck and a nice expression. He's gorgeous!!!!
This 7 year old purebred is just over 60 lbs which is very small for a male Labrador. He's extremely calm and is a good boy on his walks where he never pulls and always enjoys meeting other humans and dogs. He is a fabulous walking companion!!!
Walker has a nice outgoing and friendly personality. His former life involved many dog shows so he met tons and tons of people going everyone around the country. Needless to say, he acclimates well to most everything and is a wonderful boy in the car or in new situations.
Walker loves his crate though he doesn't need it. He will go in and out at will and will go in when he wants to nap and rest. He sleeps the whole nice through without a peep too! He was previously crate trained and is just now learning that the other dog beds in the home are also for him and are also just as comfortable as his comfy crate! So much to choose from!
Walker loves food! What Labby doesn't? But he is so gentle taking treats and he does not beg for food. He's fine eating with the other dogs.
Walker is a very easy going guy. He is good about waiting in the car during errands on cool days. He is fine around the vacuum cleaner and other oddball noises. And he does fine left alone. However left alone we have kept him crated since this is what he is used to. In this way he can feel safe and actually be safe in his new environment. We think his new home may want to consider a crate although he may not need it.
We have also had him sleep in his crate to assure a housebreaking routine in his new environment. New places can disrupt potty habits. He is taken out of his cate and taken directly outside to relieve himself which he does every time. He is also going out by himself through an open back door during the day. He would do great with an open door to the yard or with a doggie door.
Walker is perfect for someone wanting a medium to lower energy dog that just wants to love and be a buddy. He loves other dogs and cats but does'nt need them to be happy. However if he is going to a home wthout another dog, it would be better if that person is home during the day or takes him to work.
Walker wants to be where you are. If you are watching TV that is where he wants to be and like all Labradors, Walker is not an outside dog. He wants to be inside unless he is pottying or you are outside with him doing fun things.
Walker is a healthy boy! He has been neutered, vaccinated, and has a microchip. We also did a good dental on Walker while he was under anesthesia so he has very sweet smelling breath indeed!
Walker is fostered in Beautiful Santa Barbara
If you feel this boy is a fit for you and you have already been approved to adopt, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org. If ever you don't get a response, please email again by typing the address into your email instead of clicking the link. Some programs consider a link a spam mail.
Meet Jada, a little nugget of chocolate love. Jada is a super petite, adorable purebred English Labrador. She has a very dark chocolate coat and beautiful conformation. She is unbelievably adorable and will steal your heart so fast!
Jada is a chocolate purebred 4 year old dream. This little bon-bon is on the smaller side for a purebred. She is a nicely bred Lab and was in a breeding program when her owner became ill and could no longer continue. Jada has had a litter of beautiful puppies a few years ago and is now retired and spayed. She is ready to be a full time love bug and boy is she easy to love.
Jada is a nice looking girl with her short muzzle, blocky head, round kitty paws, otter tail and her dark coat. As pretty as she is, she is also as wonderful in her heart. She is the right mix of fun and spicey but super mellow and easy going. She's slightly shy at times but has been seen trying to explore the counter top in her foster home! Naughty girl! But she is learning and since all Labs are counter surfers and she is small, we recommend leaving nothing on the counter.
Jada loves her food and her treats. She is very easy to train because she wants to please. At the same time she doesn't need much training as she is calm and easy to manage. She walks nicely on the leash though criss crosses at times and she is 100% crate trained too. Because of her crate training she has housebroken easily although she may make a potty error in a new home.
Jada loves all other dogs big and small and is gentle with all. She is also good with kitties so a good candidate for cat homes.
We think she will do best with another friendly canine companion to keep her company and play at times. She prefers a quieter home for now as she is still learning the roaps and too much commotion and noise can be too much for her. She is still a bit shy and submissive.
Jada is non destructive in the home although she is still learning what things are and are not hers. Her new owners will need to put remote controls, cell phones, sunglasses, wallets and other valuables out of reach and off the coffee table. Also lots of chew appropriate toys are important to keep around. She is still learning what toys are but is gaining interest more each day. Nylabones, antlers and bully sticks are great. Kongs are wonderful too!
Jada loves her walks and would like 2 a day please. She would also like to go to dog beach, for a swim in your pool if you have one, or on a nice trail walk from time to time. Jada would enjoy all the wonders life has to offer and can't wait to be part of a loving family!
Jada is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.
Meet Kylie, Kylie is a super petite, adorable purebred yellow female Labrador. She has a nice cream colored coat and beautiful conformation. Oh boy she is as cute as a button!
Kylie is a show quality Labrador purebred. Her owner did show and titled her several times. She has never beed bred. She is just at the bottome of the breed standard for size. She is a just a darling, super petite little thing at only about 47 pounds! Kylie is approx. 6-7 years old but looks and acts like a 3 year old. She is not hyper, just beautifully lightly playful, cheery, carries toys, and in general just makes you think puppy! Plus she's a little thing so there's that!
Kylie's owners had to let her go after health issues. At first is was just one of her owners but now both have fallen ill and Kylie is not able to get the attention and love she deserves. They want her to have so much more.
Kylie has a sweet personality and temperament and just loves people. She will do anything to please her person, sitting alongside then and enjoying a good long petting session or playful interaction. Love is all she wants.
Kylie has lived most of her life in a kennel and is just learning what it’s like to be part of a family. She is learning to play and enjoy the daily activities that are at her foster home. Kylie is currently foster with several other Labradors and even a few small King Charles Cavaliers.
Kylie is also fostering with a few cats and pays no attention to them at all, she would be great for a family that has cats.
Kylie is housebroken and doing very well, she is 100% crate trained making housebreaking a snap. She will need some reassurance when she gets to her new home and learns the rules of the house when it comes to going outside for her potty breaks.
Kylie is eager to please. She is treat motivated which makes training easy if you wanted to teach her more things like doing therapy work or to obtain her canine good citizen certification.
Kylie is well mannered in the house and nondestructive, after a few minutes of checking out things in the house she will settle down on a nice comfy bed. She also sleeps through the night on her bed.
Kylie loves being right by your side and would make a nice companion to go on errands in addition to a trip to the dog park to play some fetch! She is learning what toys are and enjoys carrying around a toy in her mouth all day long!
She is a medium energy girl who will need her daily exercise, a couple nice walks every day and some playful time playing with another canine companion or with her new family. Kylie is just learning the stairs in her foster family home and in no time will be a master climbing them. Her last home was a one story home.
Kylie is curious about so many things and like most Labs, she is interested in all delicious human food. It is important her new family does not leave any food on counters as this girl will likely be much too interested. All Labs try to counter surf and if they find something making their work worth it, it just reinforces the behavior. It's always best to put all edible items away. This includes all human and canine medication! She's pretty small though and hasn't reached back too far. She's a short-stack. :-)
Kylie is a eating a good high end grain free diet and getting the right amount of food each day. She was slightly underweight when she arrived and is filling out nicely. She should arrive at 50 perfect little pounds! Kylie was recently spayed, had a full dental cleaning and is up to date on her shots.
Meet Layla, a 6-7-year-old purebred black female purebred English Labrador.
Layla is a show quality Labrador who was part of a hobby breeding program and is now retired after delivering several titled show Labbies! She has a very sweet face on her nice blocky head and is always smiling.
Layla is a quality dog. She is what we call an "A-temperament" Labrador as she has zero aggression or bad behavior and loves all dogs, cats, and humans alike. She embodies the temperament, conformation and health well bred Labradors are known for and we feel honored to be chosen to help find her her new home.
Layla is well behaved and calm, yet lightly playful and super affectionate with other dogs. She would love another friendly canine companion to be her buddy or at least a new owner who would be with her a lot - talking her to work, using her as a therapy dog, or even a nice retired couple who won't leave her alone. She deserves tons of spoiled attention now that she is retired from showing and making beautiful Lab babies.
We think Layla will be the most affectionate Labby you have ever met and she certainly will steal your heart.
Layla is a good candidate for therapy work if you like. She is also just a lovely wonderful companion who will make each day a happier more fullfilling day for anyone lucky enough to be her best friend.
Layla is very pretty. She has a gorgeous blocky head and nice ears. Her round cat-like paws and perfect and her thick otter tail is amazing. She is a petite girl on the lighter smaller side of Labrador conformation which is nice for someone looking for a smaller Lab. Her shiny black coat is healthy and bright and she has just the right amount of peppered grey to give her an adorable character.
Layla is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, and microchiped!
Chance White adopted!
Meet Chance White, a stunning show quality purebred AKC male Labrador. He is a light cream color and has perfect conformation. He is a gorgeous boy. Chance White has a chunky otter tail, round paws, a thick shorter conformation, and naturally the envious blocky head English Labs are treasured for.
Chance White is just under 7 years old. He's a super mellow boy indoors, but he also loves to play and will romp and play like a puppy at times. He will therefore do his best in a home with another playful friendly dog. He loves his walks and does great with a 15 minute walk 2 times a day.
He is still learning to do well on leash in terms of pulling and walking in a straight line, but he passes other dogs beautifully and is a typical Labrador making friends with all dogs big and small. He'll be easy to work with.
Chance White came to us as a retired show and stud dog. He was titled and is a Champion Labrador having earned best in show in several specialty conformation competitions. He is a very beautiful boy.
Chance White is wonderful with other dogs. He will share beds with his foster siblings and is great about sharing toys too. He is not food or toy possessive and wants to please.
Chance White is what we would rate an "A" temperament, meaning his behavior, personality, energy level, and friendliness are the best of the best. He can easily certify for therapy work if you like although we think he would love just being a family friend.
Chance would like a friendly canine companion to live with. He is a very special boy who loves to have friends. He can even go with kitties as he is gentle and calm with them. He has not been fostered with chickens but would likely be fine.
Chance is great in the crate. He is fully crate trained and is learning his potty manners. He will let himself outside to potty with an open door or doggie door but without that, his new owner will need to take him outside often and praise him so he knows what spot is his to use.
Chance White is really one of the nicest boys we have met. If you are open to a new buddy who wants to be close, and go to the park and beach or even to work with you, this might be the guy.
Chance has been fully vetted and has a clean bill of health. He's a healthy boy who has been neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.
Max White adopted!
Meet Max White, a gorgeous 3-year old purebred male Labrador. We love his sweet fun boys darling personality and handsome looks.
Max White is a gorgeous cream, light colored Lab. He has a nice blocky head, otter tail and muscular field conformation making him truly beautiful! He has that dopey puppy face and expression that makes you smile. Cuteness overload!
At 3 years of age, this youngster loves his exercise, playtime, walks, and fun. He also loves to be part of the family and with other dogs. He loves dog park.
Max loves being with his humans, he wants nothing but to please making him a wonderful dog to train - especially because he is treat motivated! He would love a nice obedience class and will surely do well. His typical Labrador personality makes him a dog that wants to learn and make everyone happy. This is the cornerstone of a well balanced dog. Max is a score but his new family will need to do that work of training to get him where he needs to be.
Max loves other dogs big and small and is playing and having a blast in his foster home. He loves a good game of chase or tug-o-war. Max will only be placed in a home that has another canine companion or someone who will be home most of the time and give him the playtime and attention he deserves - trips to dog park and dog beach, daily fun, etc.
Max would enjoy being a nice walking or jogging partner in the morning if you like. He's good on the lead and is a nice companion to share a travel trail with. He is still learning leash work and doing great with a pinch collar and martingale collar which is curing any pulling. He would love going to the dog parks, the beach and nature hikes.
Max White rides well in the car and would be a great companion for running errands and trips to the local pet store to pick out some new toys!
Max loves his toys - ropes, Kongs, and other sturdy toys. Max is still a young boy so good chew toys like kongs, nylabone and antlers would be the best for him. Labs can be counter surfers, so it is important to keep all things out of his reach, phones, remotes, eyeglasses, food and medications while ensuring other interesting toys and puzzles abound.
Max White also loves water! Don't be surprised if he ends up in the shower or bathtub with you if you let him! He's a really Lab for sure. He would love a house with a pool or a family that can do pool or beach visits and even a baby pool from time to time.
This is a young, healthy, strapping boy. He is a dog who will do best with someone who will exercise him daily and well, provide lots of engaging activity, teach and be patient, and love well. He's a shining star and deserves the best.
Max had a bad start. His family paid a lot of money to buy him from a breeder. Then after he was no longer a small puppy, they stuck him in a yard. Finally they decided they didn't even want him anymore so they just gave him away. We are thrilled they did because now he is ours.
Max is neutered and up to date on shots and microchipped.
Meet Lorelai, a beautiful truly English Labrador with a gorgeous white coat, sweet face, adorable personality and a show quality conformation.
This 7 year old darling is quite special. She has what we call "A-tempermament" meaning she can easily certify to be a therapy dog. She is bombproof with all dogs, cats, chickens, and small critters. She is very gentle and will do well with little children as well.
Lorelai smiles when you look at her. She is a very happy girl even though she has had a sad and neglectful few last years. You can see on her nose a scar from trying to dig her way out of a kennel which was her permanent home for the last 4 years. She was locked up and isolated which is not the norm for a dog of her calibur.
Lorelai is retired from a breeding program where she produced some unbelievable show quality puppies. Unfortunately her breeder did not appreciate what Lorelai did and neglected her.
Lorelai fell off her dog house years ago and hurt both back legs. The owner did nothing to vet her them and they healed on their own, because of this, Lorelai walks a little gimpy now and then after too much exercise, but she gets around great and takes a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (doggie aspirin) for inflammation!
Lorelai loves her walks and play time. She is a super mellow typical English Lab but is loving playing with her foster Labby sister who is a chocolate Lab. And she likes following her foster sister around.
Lorelai is fostered with a swimming pool. She likes it but isn't nuts over it although she did fine swimming and getting out the few times she fell in. Silly girl.
Lorelai is a stocky blocky girl with a thick otter tail, nice round cat paws, a blocky head, and a thick double Labrador waterproof coat. She has a nice reach of neck and wonderful conformation. She is stunningly beautiful, but her personality is the real treasure. Whoever is blessed enough to adopt her will have years and years of true love and companionship.
She will do her best with someone who has another friendly canine companion and is home a lot. We say this because she deserves a ton of attention after being locked up and ignored for so long. She holds no grudge and is as well adjusted and happy as can be.
Lorelai is at a good weight and should not exceed it. In fact she can loose a bit more if you like. She is on the medium size for a female.
She doesn't pull on the lead at all but she is learning to walk on the leash. Prior to us, she had never seen a real collar or leash other than a show lead used years ago when she was shown. She is so cute and will criss cross around but is learning to walk a nice straight line. She passes every dog and human beautifully.
If you are looking for a mellow low key dog who is housebroken, non-destructive, lightly playful and who can do therapy work if that is yor gig, She may be the one. She will likely need to be on NSAIDS the rest of her life on and off if she gets painful from overdoing it. So her new family must commit to keeping her in nice physical shape and able to provide her yearly bloodwork and exams to be sure she can continue on her doggie aspirin when needed.
This beautiful is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and ha had her teeth cleaned and ears treated for an infection. She has been xrayed and had a full blood panel and urinalysis done. She is a healthy sweet girl.
Sweet Potato! adopted!
Meet Sweet Potato, a gorgeous purebred Golden Retriever who's golden coat cannot compare to his heart of gold. He is as sweet as he is adorable.
Sweet Potato is just gorgeous. He has a wonderful medium energy at age 6 -7 and a submissive personality. He's a real love bug and loves to be held and cuddled. He has a temperament that tells us no matter what, he will always be your friend. Sweet Potato is a buddy for sure.
Sweet Potato came to us as a stray dog who eneded up in a shelter. He was not chipped or neutered. He was not cared for. His coat was filthy and matted and his ears were dirty. He was clearly a dog someone paid a lot of money for and then decided he was not longer a fun toy to play with and so likely just relegated him to a back yard with no care.
True to his breed, this Golden holds no grudges and cannot wait to share his wiggles and love with anyone and everyone.
Sweet Potato is learning his basic commands and doing great with his housebreaking too! He loves other dogs and would like to have buddies to play with and hang out with. He seems ok with cats as well!
Sweet Potato pulls slightly on the leash. No one ever walked him so what do you expect? He is learning quick and wants to please. His new family will have no trouble correcting him and in no time he'll walk like a show dog! Until then, his new family will want to consider a pinch collar and we always ask that adopters bring a martingale collar with them. You can purchase a martingale collar at any pet store and this assures a rescued retrieve cannot slip off the lead as they are still new in their environment.
Sweet Potato arrives just in time for your Thanksgiving! And what a gift to be thankful for. His grateful and cheery demenor and his smiles and wags say all you need to know. He is ready to love and give. He just needs a home ready to commit, train, and give him the time he needs to become your best perfect friend.
Sweet Potato had a pretty matted coat when he came to us. He's had to have a few mats removed while we attempted to not have to shave him and loose all those gorgeous Golden feathers. We hate to shave a Golden unless we need to. His new family will want to keep giving him nice brushings to be certain his mats stay out and his coat fills in perfectly.
Since he is newly neutered, his new family will want to take it easy for jut the first week.
Sweet potato looks good in almost any color so feel free to buy all the cute bandanas you want. He' rocks them all. His collar color too is up to you as his best color is all of them!
Remember with all new rescue dogs to puppy proof even if the dog is an adult. That means no sunglasses, remotes, cell phones, wallets, or anything at all chewable on tables. Medication, and really anything else should never be on a counter where a dog can counter surf. Also, no child toys left out that can be broken and swallowed.
Antlers and nylabones and stuffed kongs are the order of the day with bully sticks as an add-on only under supervision. We do not recommend raw hides for dogs except once in awhile. they can harm a dogs intestines.
Sweet Potato is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Snuggles, this cream puff of a Labrador will steal your heart and all you will want to do is Snuggle with her.
Snuggles is about eight years young and a stunningly beautiful English purebred Labrador Retriever. We love this girl's light cream coat and typical English demenor, calmness and gentle nature. Wiggling and smiling are her specialties but that is just the beginning with this sweet, sweet marshmallow love bug.
Snuggles is from an excellent blood line of English Labs. She is beyond perfection, with her looks and personality. Snuggles was a show and breeding dog in her previous life and has been retired from showing and breeding. Her handler wanted Snuggles to get a fully screened loving home, since Snuggles was a great mother to all of her pups. It's now time for Snuggles to get all the love and attention she deserves.
We made the promise that we would find her only the best home as we do for all of our dogs.
Snuggles is a beautifully bred girl with a light cream coat, big blocky head, and the most unbelievable otter tail. She has a beautiful show confirmation. We think it is adorable.
Snuggles is on a high quality grain free food and getting daily exercise in her foster home. Snuggles is lightly playful and loves all of the other dogs she has fostered with both big and small. She even loves the cats. We think she will do wonderfully with children and even chickens.
This gentle sweet girl is learning to play and understanding that she is loved, and is been contemplating getting in the pool at her foster home. All the other dogs go in and swim and we don't think it will be long before Snuggles does too.
Snuggles walks on a leash beautifully. She's a dream. She is learning her house manners and house breaking and doing great. Her new family will need to continue to work with this angel and she is eager to please.
Snuggles sleeps through the night on her bed without a peep. She is nondestructive in the home. She also rides nicely in the car. We have not been able to discover any bad habits at all! Snuggles is learning her basic commands and will be happy to learn whatever you want to teach her.
Snuggles would do best as a one and only or with another friendly canine companion. Her new family will be very lucky.
Snuggles is a healthy girl who is spayed and up-to-date on vaccinations. All that's needed now is the very best home.
Yukon puppy adopted!
Meet Yukon! Yukon is a beautiful deep dark chocolate male AKC purebred Labrador Retriever. He has a beautiful block head, otter tail, and nice conformation. He's one gorgeous dog!
Yukon came to us after his owner could no longer provide for their dogs. He is truly a gem and has an outstanding temperament.
This stunning youngster is on the mellow side and although he is still a puppy for the next year plus, he settles beautifully after his exercise.
Yukon will do best with another friendly canine companion to play with, however, if you are home most of the time or have a great dog play plan, he could work out beautifully!
Yukon is a teenage puppy who will grow into a medium sized adult. He has medium energy and a calm temperament. He is on the submissive shy side and is a gentle boy.
Yukon is walking great on the least in his training and is learning his commands.
Since he's a puppy, his new owners need to have clean and clear countertops. No meds, no food, nothing. Also no valuable items like wallets, cell phones, or sunglass and especially remotes on the coffee table. Puppy think they are toys.
He will need lots of chew toys like kongs, bully sticks, antlers and the like. Also lots of other fun toys!
Yukon is neutered, up to date of vaccines and ready for love.
Simone puppy adopted!
Meet Simone, a puppy of 10 months. She is a purebred AKC (unregistered) Labrador Retriever female. This submissive beauty on the English side and although a playful pup, she is a mellow girl after her playtime.
Simone will be a medium sized Labrador at her full size. Her coat is the darkest brown and her eyes a beautiful burnt sugar. She is just gorgeous.
Simone is a gentle and sweetly submissive girl who is loving learning her leash walks and her offleash hikes with other labs!
She is fostered in Malibu and is enjoying her Labby foster siblings, kitties, and even chickens. She is also enjoying rides in her foster daddy's Jeep!
Simone will do her best with another youngish and playful, well-adjusted dog. However is your family is home often with lots of fun activitie and attention, she could do well as your one and only.
Since she is just a baby and will be for the next year and 3 months, her new home must be puppy proofed. That means no sunglasses, remotes, cell phones, wallets, or anything at all chewable on tables. Medication, and really anything else should never be on a counter where a dog can counter surf. Also, no child toys left out that can be broken and swallowed.
Antlers and nylabones and stuffed kongs are the order of the day with bully sticks as an add-on only under supervision. She is still learning what toys are but we suspect that will take about 2 days in your home and she will soon be carrying a ball or toy around like most Labs do.
No small children for this girl as she is shy and we would like her to first acclimate without the excess activity and noise of boisterous childplay. Older children would be lovely.
She is a great candidate for kitties and small dogs as well as kids and the elderly grandparent living with their family. Her temperament is what we would rate an "A" and in the right hands, she will shine like a diamond.
Simone is spayed, up to date on vaccines, groomed, ears cleaned and treated and bloodwork done. She is a healthy nice puppy ready for love.
Meet Colton! Colton is a gorgeous purebred yellow Labrador Retriever. He is about 3 years old, and is a nice, happy, social boy! Colton gets compliments everywhere he goes on just how handsome he is!
Colton is a happy, friendly boy who always has a smile on his face and a wag in his tail. A true Lab at his core, this fella is everything we love about our breed! Colton came to us from a high kill shelter where his owners never came to claim him. Well good thing, as his new home will be far superior and much more caring.
This fun, young boy is an active boy and needs good exercise every day. He is a young Labrador, so after he has had his exercise, he settles well in the home. He would love long walks or jogs, or hikes and the beach! Don't be surprised if he enjoys a lazy afternoon napping right beside you after his exercise routine.
Colton is housebroken. His new family should be prepared for a possible accidents anyway as he gets used to a new home and a new routine. Anytime you introduce a new dog to your home, you want to take them outside often so they learn their new potty place and a new routine. He is crate trained and sleeps soundly in his crate at night. He is not destructive and truly is a great, well-behaved boy and a joy to have around.
Like most Labs, he is interested in all human food. It is important his new family does not leave any food on counters as this young boy will likely be much too interested. All Labs try to counter surf and if they find something making their work worth it, it just reinforces the behavior. It's always best to put all edible items away.
Colton loves all people and is great with all dogs too! His favorite reward is snuggle time with his human family. He can even be found climbing into your lap if you allow him. He would do well as your one and only or as a doggie companion. Most importantly, Colton loves his dog toys! He loves soft, squeaky toys, dog bones, and balls to play fetch as well. Lots of fun playtime can be had with this fantastic boy!
Colton walks well on leash, but he does pull when he sees another person or dog he wants to meet, so he is best walked with a training collar and will benefit from some training to walk next to his person instead of pulling you with excitement. He loves his walks and getting out with his person. He enjoys saying hello to any man, woman, child, or dog that he sees.
Colton is learning fast while in foster. He knows “sit “ and is learning his other commands. He is treat motivated, so he will be an easy boy to train. With a little bit of fun training, he will learn even more. He could even enjoy a doggie obedience class if you prefer.
Colton is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Emerald, a beautiful purebred black female Labrador Retriever. Emerald is 6 years old with a darling smaller size of about 60 pounds. She is absolutely adorable!
One of the best thing about Emerald other than her perfect temperament is her ability to look so cute in a variety of bandanas. After all, fashion matters!
Emerald came to us from an owner who was moving and could no longer keep this sweet girl. She is an extremely sweet and easy girl and she will now receive one of the best homes as an Indilab dog! Her foster mom says she is absolutely amazing!
Emerald is a medium energy girl who settles very well in the home! She is wonderful with all other dogs big and small as well and gentle and calm with cats, making her a good choice for families with kitties. She has a darling sweet temperament that is to die for. She is just plain delicious.
Emerald loves all people and will shower you with kisses to show you her love! She adores any and all attention, so would be happiest with a family that wants to love on her, pet her, and truly have her be a member of the family.
Emerald is completely housebroken and even uses the doggie door at her foster home. She sleeps soundly through the night and would even sleep on your bed with you if you allow her. She also loves the doggie beds in her foster home and loves to snuggle on those. She is such a well mannered girl and non-destructive when left as well.
Emerald will do well with another canine or feline companion, or as your one and only. Of course if she is your one and only, it is best that you are home more often than not so she doesn't need to be all alone for so many hours.
Her calm nature makes her a good candidate to go to work with you if you like or you can even certify her to do some therapy work! She definitely has the personality for it. What's more, she is very good in the car making her a wonderful road trip or errand companion on days that are not too hot.
Emerald is learning quickly basic commands in her foster home. She wants to please and is very easy to work with.
Emerald would love to go on a nice walk each day. She does nicely on leash and does not pull making her a pleasure to walk. She passes other dogs nicely and is friendly to all. What a nice walking partner!
Emerald is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Harvest, a sweet female purebred Golden Retriever who is petite at only about 60 lbs. and is 5 years of age. She is a golden dream with her adorable smile, beautiful coat, and lovely temperament.
This little gal came to us from a when her breeder closed their small breeding operation and wanted to make sure that little Harvest got the very best Indilab home-checked, and approved home.
Harvest is a little shy at first and warms up well to people. She is a submissive sweet heart and she is still learning and understanding that life is full of adventures and good things. She is enjoying her foster family and learning to walk on a leash and cruise the neighborhood.
Harvest was raised with a lot of other dogs and is dog and cat friendly. She is a great choice for families with cats as she is very kind and gentle with them.
Her new family will want to introduce her to all the wonderful things her world can include. She really wants to please her person and will gladly do what you ask of her, so bringing her new places and introducing her to new things will be a wonderful part of bonding with her. Take her to coffee or to the beach. She is sure to enjoy being your sidekick.
Harvest is fostered with another dogs and is happiest that way. She would do best with another doggie companion, but could work as your one and only if you are home often. She is a well behaved, mellow girl who could go to work with you easily or could eventually train to do therapy work as she gets more confident with the outside world.
Harvest is a calmer medium energy girl. She would enjoy a couple of nice walks eadh day and perhaps a hike or other outing on the weekend. She would also love the doggie park or dog beach.
So far, Harvest is doing great on the leash. She lived on an estate and never needed a leash so this is new. She rarely pulls and wants to follow you, so walks will be enjoyable with this girl. She will also be a great off leash girl after you bond.
Harvest is a very loving girl! She really wants to curl up next to you and be close to her person. She is learning quickly how to play with toys and enjoy all the love that her foster home is providing her. All she wants is a family to call her own and love her, which is not hard to do, this sweet girl is easy going and a joy to have around.
Harvest is housebroken but as we tell all of our families that a rescue dog could have an accident until she learns her new potty routine in her new home. Harvest shows no aggressive behavior towards food or toys. She is very well behaved in the kitchen as she does not jump up, but we all know dogs can be counter surfers, so keeping dangerous items off the counters is always the best.
This sweet girl really wants to bond with a family that she can call her own forever. She is a treasure and whoever is lucky enough to adopt her will enjoy a limitless amount of unconditional love.
Harvest is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Delana, a beautiful fox red female purebred Labrador who is 5-6 yrs old. Fox Red is a beautiful variation on the yellow Labrador. It's very pretty.
Delana was from a breeder who decided to close their small breeding operation and wanted Delana to get the best home possible. We made that promise to do just that.
Delana is smart, loving, playful and loyal, she will shower her new family with so much of this you will wonder how you lived without her before now! Delana recently had a litter of pups and is now looking for a family to baby her and give her all their attention that her pups got from her.
Delana is great with other dogs and cats, making her a good choice for a kitty home. She loves everyone she meets and is very affectionate.
Delana is just the right amount of playfulness but knows when its time to be relaxed and chill. She is starting to play with toys and balls and would love a home that will play fetch with her. She would also like to go to dog parks and does amazing at them, also a good hike or doggie beach is a fun outing for Delana and her new family.
Delana does well on leash and off leash as well, a little reinforced training on the leash is always a good idea with a rescue dog. She is not food/treat or toy aggressive at all.
Delana sleeps all night on a soft cushy bed and doesn’t make a noice. She is 100% housebroken and will let you know when she need to go outside for a potty break.
Delana prefers to have another canine companion close by and her person not to far away. She is learning that she is loved and gaining more and more confidence each day while she is at her foster home. She doesn’t like to be left behind and wants to join in on all the families activities and adventures.
Delana is non destructive, but her new family should always keep counters and tables free of items she could decide to have interest in, remotes, eye glasses, medicine, candy, gum among other items that can harm or even kill a dog.
Meet Hazelnut, an Australian Labradoodle who will melt your heart away with her absolute cuteness. Did I say cuteness overload? She is about 5 years old and will take your breath away.
Hazelnut came to us from a breeder who decided to discontinue their breeding program as they were retiring and moving out of state. Hazelnut had a few litters and we are sure she was the best momma there could ever be. Now its time for Hazelnut to be babied and taken care of like she took care of many puppies. She had been well cared for and loved by the breeder and socialized with lots of other dogs.
Labradoodles are sociable, friendly, non aggressive, and extremely intuitive. Their intelligence and high trainability make them well suited for guide dogs, therapy dogs, and other assistance dogs. Their hypoallergenic coats make them popular among people who have not been able to enjoy pets because of their allergies.
Hazelnut is happiest when she's with the people she loves, and she'll shower her family with affection and devotion. With the energy of the Labrador Retriever and the work ethic of both the Lab and the Standard Poodle, she's a joy.
Hazelnut was just recently groomed with the standard darling "puppy cut"! Doesn't she look darling?! She is just a happy, sweet lovable girl, waiting to find the forever home that will shower her with affection and love.
Hazelnut is a velcro dog and wants to be by her person. She also loves to have a doggy companion close by for fun and playtime. She will do best in a home with at least one other sweet playful dog and where she will have lots of company. Hazelnut is good on leash, but could use a little additional training not to pull. She lived on an estate where she could roam and play and never needed a leash, so a leash is new to her. She is doing beautifully and each day doing better! She is also trust worthy off leash and will stay close to her persons side. She would love a family who is active and will take to on hikes, to a doggy beach and dog parks.
She is gentle and has no food or treat or toys possessiveness, she is learning what toys are since she really didn’t have a lot of toys before. She is completely housebroken, but as we tell everyone, going to a new home she could have an accident while she is learning her new families routine. She also sleeps soundly on her bed all through the night without a peep. All she asks for in return is a soft bed and lots of love.
Hazelnut is up to date on her shots, microchipped, and spayed.
Hazelnut would like a wonderful family, a friendly canine companion, and is great with cats.
Meet Cranberry, an absolutely adorable 2 year old female Labrador who wants to be yours!
Cranberry is a really pretty youngster with a glossy chocolate coat and cinnamon sugar eyes. She is a beauty and loves to come in for kisses. Cranberry has just a lovely pup temperament. She is lightly playful and loves other dogs. She would love to go to dog beach with you and would love a friendly canine companion preferable close in age for play.
Cranberry came to us from a breeder who decided to discontinue their small hobby breeding program as they are retired and moving out of state to a small condo. Cranberry never had puppies since she still is one. She was well cared for and loved by her breeder and she was well socialized with lots of other dogs.
Cranberry is extremely affectionate with her person. She loves attention and cuddles, but she is equally happy with her doggie foster siblings. She is great will all other dogs, big and small and is fostered with a little dog currently.
Cranberry also gets along with the cats in her foster home so she is a nice choice for feline families too. We think she'll work fine with chickens, horses or other critters once introduced. She has a lovely temperament. Overall Cranberry has a calm personality and relaxes nicely after play time and exercise. She will be a pretty chill gal. Cranberry needs her basic puppy training. Lots of rules and regulation, reinforcement of commands like stay, sit, come, heal, lay, etc. would be great. She is still learning her commands and doing great as she wants to please her person. If you sign up for a puppy class with her, she would enjoy it very much and you both would benefit and have a great time.
So far she is doing beautifully on the leash and passing dogs nicely. She would love hikes or nice trips to dog beach. She is good off leash once you have a strong bond with her and when she is in a pack environment like a trail with other dogs.
Cranberry is still a puppy. Labradors remain puppies for 2 full years until their growth plates close and they have a prolonged toddler-hood compared to other breeds. Just because they look adultish at a year, they are not. They still have another year to go before they are grownups. Cranberry is 2 so she's at the tail end of her puppyhood but still has that puppy spirit! Naturally this means lots of chew toys like nylabones and antlers should be readily available. And a delicious bully stick would be lovely now and then as well. Kongs are great too.
Young Labs make mistakes of course. Some might have a potty mishap and many counter surf for food and fun. Take your new puppy out all the time and praise lavishly when they go to reinforce their pride in good potty manners! They love it! More important is that nothing be on counters EVER. Counter surfing is a one surefire way to put your young dog at risk. All medications, food, gum, etc should be stored far, far away in the cabinets. Certain things - like sugar free gum - will kill dogs.
Cranberry is learning how to play and figuring out that its fun to play with balls and toys. She is a mellower, medium energy girl for a puppy but does needs her good daily exercise of at least an hour. Hiking, jogging, dog park, etc is great and then another walk later on. Then she settles right in with the other dogs and is such a nice and sweet buddy.
Cranberry is still growing into her body and could stand to gain a few pounds to fill out nicely. A good healthly grain free diet will do the trick.
Make a habit of putting remotes, iPhones, sunglasses, iPads, and any other expensive things you don't want chewed, away. That and her own toys will assist you with a peaceful puppy experience!
Cranberry is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations.
Meet Lindley, this adorable 6 year old Yellow Labrador is as sweet as they come. Lindley loves to be right beside her person. She will shower you with love and kisses and is willing to please.
She is a true lab at the core with her tail always wagging and a smile on her face. Lindley recently had a litter of puppies, once the puppies went to their forever home, the owner decided that they no longer had the time for her, and the attention she deserves, and they contacted us knowing that we would only find her the best Indilab family that will cherish her . She has a true motherly nature as she is cool, calm, and collected.
This sweet, caring girl has a medium energy level as she will play fetch with her ball, but when it is time to calm down she will lay at your feet. Lindley will need good daily exercise as she loves to run around and play especially fetch with a good tennis ball. She loves parks, playdates with other dogs, hikes, a trip to the dog beach and walks. Once she has had good exercise, she will enjoy a lazy afternoon napping right beside you.
Lindley is housebroken, but her new family needs to introduce her to the backyard and doors so she can get into a routine. She prefers not to be in a crate as she is not destructive and is very well behaved outside the crate and will sleep throughout the night without making a peep. As long as she had a nice soft doggie bed next to her family she happy as can be.
Lindley is not food motivated and shows no aggressive behavior towards food. She is very well behaved in the kitchen as she does not jump up, but we all know out Labs can be counter surfers, so keeping dangerous items off the counters is always the best.
Lindley loves all people including kids and is great with other dogs and cats. Her favorite reward is snuggle time with her human family. She loves belly rubs and human attention. She would do well as an only dog, but could also be a good friend to a fellow dog.
Most importantly, Lindley loves balls and other soft squeaky toys. You will have lots of fun playing fetch with this fantastic girl. Lindley walks well on lease but still could use some work. She is not a puller but likes to take in all the scents. She loves to say hello to any man, woman, child, or dog that she sees.
Lindley knows her basic commands “sit”, “down”, and “stay”. Lindley is about as perfect as they come.
Lindley is spayed and up to date on her shots.
Candy, Trick, Treat adopted!
Meet Candy, Trick, and Treat! These three adorable purebred Lab puppies came to us from a family in dire straights who ended up with an accidental litter and needed help. Well we are here to be sure they get only the best homes!
Candy is a sweet female purebred black Labrador. Her brother Trick is chocolate, and her brother Treat is black.
All three puppies have had all three rounds of vaccinations and have had their dew claws removed. Parents are AKC registered Labradors but these guys will not be going out with papers.
They all have wonderful loving temperaments and are not hyper or domininant. They are typical sweet little puppies with adorable personalities.
Puppies require a huge commitment as they chew, dig, bark, have potty mistakes, eat everything, and basically make a mess of your life. But oh how we love them!!!!
The puppies are fostered in the Inland Empire and are ready to go home now to puppy approved families.
Only homes with no young children and where someone is home most of the time for the first 6 months will be considered.
Puppies all go out on a spay and neuter contract with a deposit to be refunded upon receipt of proof of neuter.
Meet Tugg, an adorable 6-year old male Labrador Retriever. Tugg is a nice shiney pitch black color and has a beautiful coat. He's a pretty boy with a super cute expression and smile. Anyone who meets him instantly thinks he is just a fabulous dog.
This handsome good boy hasn't had the attention, exercise, or love he deserves. We noticed he is just a tad chunky. He should lose a couple of pounds tol be at his ideal weight for a typical male Labby. Normal exercise and healthy food will solve this right away. He is a happy, loving boy and deserves much more than he got.
Tugg came to us from his owner who was moving into a small apartment and could not bring him with her. She had him since he was a puppy and seemed sad to say goodbye. However, Tugg spent most of his life as an outdoor dog, getting little attention nor much exercise. This beautiful Labrador deserves so much more.
As a result of being outside all the time, flys bit at one of his ears pretty badly. He came to us with what is called "flystrike" which is when flies bit and cause irritation and sometimes infection. He is getting neosporin on the area and of course is not outside all the time and it is healing as flystrike always does. But it makes us sad that he had to ever have that happen.
Tuggs ideal owner will treasure him as a the jewel he is. He will never have to be ignored again. He deserves to sleep inside and be inside with his humans. He deserves lots of walks and weekend hikes. He'll be wonderful walking on his leash because he is so nice to other dogs
Tugg is a brightly active and friendly Labrador. He loves other dogs and adores his humans. He loves his walks and hikes and would really enjoy outings with his person. He's a great dog and deserves to do fun things with his owner. As much as Tugg likes his walks and play, he equally loves his indoor cuddle time and just being a close loving best buddy. He is a wonderful companion.
Tugg would love a home where he will get to do his walks, hiking nice trails, trips to dog park, and maybe dog beach too. Hes a great walking buddy but he would jog with you here and there if you'd like, We think he would love it. He doesn't know much about chasing a ball, so playing fetch is not in his DNA. Tugg also will pull on leash - an easy fix! He is best walked with a pinch collar until he learns to walk beside his person. He's great with a pinch training collar. He's such a good boy, he settles down very well once he has had his exercise.
Tugg is completely housebroken and non-destructive when left. But he has been left alone in a backyard so much in his previous home, we want this boy to find a home where he can be inside with his family much more. Tugg could be good as your one and only or as a doggie companion - he is good with all dogs big and small.
Like most rescue dogs, Tugg doesn't have much formal training but he wants to please and likes his treats too! Those are the two most wanted things in a dog for training because it makes so easy to teach commands - even advanced ones! So a little bit of work together after exercise and rewarding with some yummy dog treats and he will be proudly following your commands very soon. He just needs to know what you expect of him and how he can please you.
Tugg is a beautiful and fun loving boy who now needs the best forever home.
Tugg is neutered and up to date on vaccines.
Meet Bronx, an absoutely amazing 3-year old purebred English Labrador Retreiver who is as handsome as they come. Bronx is as true an English as you will see - stocky in stature, blocky head, shorter snout and a temperament that comes with the English Bench Bred Labradors.
Bronx came to us from a high kill shelter listed as a stray. How does this happen? We ask that all the time! Why his owners didn't come look for him or why he was not microchipped. Lucky for us, we were able to get this special boy and now he is safely at his foster home enjoying a ton of love after his sudsy bath!
Bronx is currrenly fostered with several other Labradors and a little King Charles Cavailier and a couple of fun kitty cats. Bronx is cat friendly, and great with dogs big and small!
Bronx loves his toys and bones that he has in his foster home. A good game of fetch is a big favorite for him! He has just the right amount of playful energy but settles nicely once he is inside. He's a young boy and has a nice easy going personality.
Bronx has the happy-go-lucky attitdue that we love in our Labradors, he wiggles, smiles and is just a love bug. He's a lot of fun to be with and is also a well behaved boy who settled down nicley in the house. Bronx also loves going for a drive in the car and would make a great companion for someone who will include him in their daily adventures.
Bronx would love a good hike, or a visit to the doggy beach. He does very well on leash as well as off leash. In addition, Bronx knows his commands, and loves to obey, especially if treats are involved. He takes treats gently with no issue. He is not treat, toy or food possive at all.
Bronx would do great with another canine companion to wrestle, play tug of war and just pal around with, he loves the dogs in his foster home now. He would only be considered a one and only dog for someone who is home most of the time and would provide him with good long walks, trip to the dog park or visits to the dog beach.
Bronx loves his baths and enjoys the attention he gets being all lathered up and rubbed down. We think he would love a pool to go swimming in, but since he was just neutered so he has not be able to go in the pool just yet.
Bronx is current on his shots, microchipped and neutered.
If you would like to add this gorgeous English boy to your family, please be certain you have completed an application to adopt and have had your in-home visit already. We can only have approved families meet our furries.
Meet Cannon, or should I say let me introduce the most darling, most lovable, silliest, cuddliest, handsomest Labrador there ever was. Prepare to have your heart stolen by this puppy-face doll baby!
Cannon is the most amazing hunk - a black male English Labrador of about 8 years old. This boy came to us from a high kill shelter where he was surrendered because his prior family was moving and couldn't take him with them. Shame on them, but hooray for us!
Cannon is a beautifully bred, near show quality fella. He is a tad bit overweight - looking to lose about 5-10 pounds. But he is a big cupcake with a big beautiful blocky head. He sports that typical expressive sweet Labby face which steals thousands of hearts every day. He has beautiful pearly white teeth as well!
Cannon is great with all dogs, big and small, as well as cats. He has very nice leash manners - rarely pulling (unless he sees a teasing squirrel). He passes other dogs so nicely. He is also good off leash which is a perfect combination so if you want to take him for some short off leash hikes, or trips to the beach, you can rest assured he will come back to you.
Cannon is completely housebroken and has lovely house manners. He likes to be with his people, but when you leave, he is happy to just snooze and is non-destructive when left. He is an easy and fun boy to have around the home! He likes to carry things around in his mouth, perhaps a toy, or perhaps your shoe or your hat if he can find them :) He is not destructive, he just loves to carry them around the house with him - it's truly adorable!
Cannon is a medium to low energy boy. He does need his daily exercise, but he doesn't need much - a couple good walks or perhaps a short hike or trip to the beach would make this boy happy. Otherwise he is very happy to lounge around the home with you. Cannon does best on a diet of dry kibble combined with some canned food - or simply moistening his dry food. He does best with softer food to eat as do many dogs as they get into their elder years. And of course limited food intake so he can lose his extra pounds.
True to the purebred Labrador breed, Cannon loves to follow his foster mom around the house and "helping" her do things like sweeping when he wags that big ole otter tail on the floors. He is just one big happy fella.
Cannon would do well with another dog or cat companion. He could be considered as a one and only dog if someone is home most of the time with him. He is fostered as an only dog and does well, but he would also be very happy with a doggie companion.
Cannon is also great in the car, getting in and out on his own and just laying down to enjoy the ride.
Cannon is neutered, up to date on shots, has had his teeth cleaned and is microchipped.
Meet Penny! Penny is a beautiful petite purebred Chocolate Labrador Retriever puppy. At her small compact size, she is a little bit of a thing - a pocket Lab - and boy is she cute.
Penny is only a year and 1/2 and a puppy until she is 2. Labs have prolonged puppyhoods and are not full grown adults until after age 2. We think she is done growing and will remain a little bon-bon.
Penny is a beautiful slim American style gal and is quiet, sweet, and reserved for a puppy. She is a submissive girl and has a lovely temperament. She is still very young of course, so like any pup, her new family will want to provide lots of chew toys and supervision. Any puppy can chew your remote control after all!
Penny comes to us from a small hobby breeder who has decided to give up breeding. Since she was born into a breeding program, she is of course not as exposed to the outside world but certainly is loving it! She adores other dogs and is wonderful with chickens and kitties too.
Penny knows sit but is only now learning her basic commands. She is quite anxious to please and learn and likely will know others by the time you come and meet her!
Penny has been wonderful off leash on her Malibu hikes and stays right with you and the pack. She comes when called and is reliable thus far even though she doesn't know her name. That said her new owners will want to start her on a leash on hike until she is fully acclimated. On leash she is very easy and doesn't pull much at all. She passes other dogs beautifully.
Penny does not bark so far. She may open up more and start to share her voice as she becomes more comfortable.
Penny is shy and quiet and is just now learning her name. She has had almost no attention before at the breeders. We are so grateful she is out of that situation and safe with us. And she will make some wonderful family and loving, faithful, and adorable companion.
Penny is a gentle dog. She is non-agressive and not posessive over balls, toys or food.
One of Penny's favorite things is her soft dog bed. She will sit primly and sweetly on it during the evening like a little lady. She is great about sleeping through the night.
So far, she is doing great with housebreaking too! But her foster home is in Malibu with open doors in areas leading outside, so she has lots of room to go out to potty. Her new owners will want to reinforce her good potty practice with frequent trips out and lavish praise when she accomplishes her goal!
We think Penny will do great with another friendly canine companion - especially a sweet one who will help her acclimate and be a play buddy at times. She will do fine with cats and chickens too.
Penny is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and is ready to find her new amazing forever home where she will be treasured for the rest of her life.
If you would like to add this girl to your family, please be certain you have completed an application to adopt and have had your in home visit already. We can only have approved families meet our furries.
Chloe 5 adopted!
Meet Chloe! Chloe is a sweet and gentle purebred English Labrador of 9 years. She is a show quality, beautifully bred black Lab with a nice blocky head. And she has the most amazing temperament too!!
Chloe came to us from her owners who fell very ill and could no longer care for her. She was treasured and a beloved pet, and it shows.
While Chloe was adored, she was allowed to eat way too much food - oh how Labs love their food, and hence she came to us very overweight. She has already lost over 10 pounds with us in foster care, with nothing more than good quality food twice a day and a couple short walks each day. She came to us more than 35 pounds overweight, so she still has another 25 pounds to lose. Her new family will need to continue her diet and exercise to ensure she gets to her ideal weight of about 70-75 pounds.
Chloe is as darling as they come! She loves every dog, cat and human she meets - even very young kids! She is perfect with all dogs big and small and just ignores the cat she is fostered with - she truly is a great dog companion to another dog or a cat, or she could do well as your one and only. And she would do great with grandkids as well!
Chloe is completely housebroken and uses the doggie door to let herself in and out too! She is a low energy girl who would be happy to take a couple short walks a day and lounge around the home or yard with you during the day. She is non-destructive when left and so well mannered in the home - she is as easy as can be!
Chloe is a healthy girl! Besides being spayed, Chloe has had bloodwork run, she has also had her teeth cleaned and her bloodwork showed an overall healthy girl!
True to her retriever nature, Chloe loves to carry toys around in her mouth - it's adorable! In fact if she cannot find a toy, or is out on a walk, she will pick up a leaf, stick or maybe even your shoe just to carry it around. She is not a chewer - but will need some lovely stuffed dog toys in her home so she can carry them around with her and leave your shoes in the closet.
Chloe is a lower energy mellow dog and will not pull on leash at all, but loves her walks. She will pass and greet other dogs nicely and is doing great on the leash.
Chloe is a very special and deserving girl and seems truly unphased by losing the only home she's known. She is a happy, adorable girl who is looking for the very best home!
Chloe is spayed, up to date on vaccines, has been groomed, had teeth cleaned and bloodwork done. She is healthy and ready to find her new amazing forever home where she will be treasured for the rest of her life.
Meet Berlin, a unbelievably darling puppy of 10 months. Berlin is a silky jet black beauty with a sweet face and burnt sugar eyes.
Berlin is a field bred Lab and she is long and lean. She is a gorgeous puppy and will be an even more beautiful adult dog with graceful lines, and a nice fieldy conformation as she fills out. You'll be the envy of the neighborhood with this black pearl at the end of a cute pink leash!
Berlin is unusually calm for a puppy. She doesn't have the typical hyper and high energy of the field lab and instead has an English Lab temperment - low key, extremely mellow, lightly playful, and calm. That said she still is a puppy!!!!
So far she is doing great sleeping silently in her crate and going potty outside. She is easy to walk on the leash because of her calm nature even though she will be more perfect as she walks more with her human.
Berlin is calm for sure. But even the calmest and quietest puppies will eat pillows, remote, sunglasses, wallets, shoes, you name it. Beause she is so easy going we want her new family to not let their "puppy" guard down! God made puppies cute because they can be very, very bad. This bunny is about as cute as they come.
Berlin came to us from a high kill shelter after her stray hold was up. We have no idea how a dog this calm and beautiful ended up there and we never will. It is shocking that she wasn't redeemed!
Berlin will do great with another friendly canine companion to play with but she doesn't need a hyper play buddy as she is so mellow. She is wonderful with all dogs and even kitties!
Berlin likes to follow you around and be close. She has been caught sleeping up on the sofa looking too cute to move. But she will train up beautifully for the luckiest family in the universe who is blessed to adopt her.
Berlin likes antlers so lots of antlers, nylabones, bully sticks and fun toys for her!
This doll baby is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.
Meet Kalani, a cute-as-a-button yellow female Labrador who loves to smile! Kalani is a lighter cream color with a pretty face, dainty paws and a touch of caramel on her ears and back. She's quite the pretty one!
Kalani is 4 years of age and medium sized. She is currently just slightly on the chunky side and will drop a pound or two in no time.
Kalani is an AKC registered purebred Labrador who's owners purchased her with the intent to breed dogs. Kalani delivered a litter over one year ago and her family kept some pups and let Kalani go. We have no idea what they are thinking and we feel very sad for this girl.
Kalani is a love bug and likes to be close to her person. She is basically a velcro dog and stays close. She is very good with other dogs and cats. We have had her chase a cat in the home for fun only to be petrified up close and run the other way! She is definitely respectful of the kitties.
Kalani loves to chase the ball and bring it back. She will chase and retrieve for as long as you care to throw it making it easy to wear her out.
Because she likes to be close, she is great off leash. On leash she does ok too. But she will require some on and off leash training as she walks with her new person as her former owners never walked her.
Kalani likes to look up on the counters. She is a counter surfer and not a candidate for a home where people keep food on their counter tops. We don't like to ever see food, medication, or gun on countertops when Labs are in the house because they will help themselves. We have seen dogs hospitalized and even die from eating medication they have gotten from the counter top. The best way to train a dog to not counter surf is to never have anything up there to begin with. If there is no reward, they stop putting forth the effort.
Kalani is great in the car making her a nice errand companion on not-too-hot days. She'd do great on trips with her family too.
If you have kids or grandkids who like to play fetch, they will love Kalani.
Kalani is a good sleeper, sleeping through the night without a peap. She wants to sleep in your bedroom with you and not in another room so a lovely dog bed near yours is needed.
Kalani is recovering from loosing her home. She is a litter nervous and confused. It breaks our hearts. Her new owner must be on board to let her decompress for at least a week in her new environment without expecting too much. Part of decompression is lots of exercise so that the nervous energy these abandoned dogs display can be mitigated. The exercise helps with the nevers while simultaneously providing fun and bonding with her new person.
Kalani takes treats very gently. It's adorable. She is not posessive over food at all. She can be posessive over her person at first but this is quickly relieved and is a temporary and normal reaction for a dog who has lost their home and is clinging to feel safe.
Kalani seems to be housebroken but its important to take her out all the time unti you learn to identify her cue to go out. Don't assume she will use a doggie door or open door either. Dogs need to learn their environment and get praise when they go potty outisde to cement the adjustment all adoptd dogs have when moving into a new home. She could have a potty accident since marking is a known canine self-soother behavior in a new home. Her new owner should simply take her out all the time and she'll settle into the house perfection in a day or two.
Kalani is up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. She is to be spayed shortly.
Meet Calvin, the most handsome English Labrador in the land. Calvin is about eight years old and a medium sized English Labrador Retriever with a mellow yellow creamy coat to match his mellow yellow dreamy personality.
We love this boy's typical English demeanor, calmness and smile. Wiggling and smiling are his specialties but Oh! there is so much more with this sweet, sweet Labrador.
Calvin came to us when his owner fell into a very difficult situation and could no longer to care for him. She reached out to us and she knew that we would find the very best home and we promised we would make that happen.
Calvin is a beautifully bred boy with a medium cream coat, blocky head, and otter tail. He has a beautiful conformation and is ever so slightly on the thin side. In his recent situation which was not ideal, we don’t believe that Calvin got much if any exercise and needs to build up a little muscle tone and get back in shape. We think he is adorable. It will be easy get into shape now that he is on a good grain free food and getting daily playful exercise.
Calvin is the typical English Labrador with a perfect temperament. He is lightly playful and loves all of the other dogs he is fostered with both big and small. He even loves the cats. Calvin has been seen kissing the cats in his foster home. He loves them and they love him right back. Calvin also love kids and will do wonderfully with children and even chickens, birds, squirrels and all living things. He’s just that perfect.
This gentle, sweet and funny boy loves to play, loves to share toys with his foster siblings, and enjoys his walks along the trail and the neighborhood dog park. He is great off leash as well as on leash. Calvin walks beautifully off leash next to his person and will stay with the pack. Calvin also loves playing a good game of fetch.
This angel loves every human and every animal. He has absolutely no aggression and is not possessive with food nor toys, he is as gentle as can be. He loves to be by his person and be pet or brushed. He is definitely a people dog but we do feel he will do best in a home with one or two other friendly lightly playful dogs.
Calvin sleeps through the night on his bed without a peep, well maybe a snore on occasion, but we all love our Labradors snoring. He is housebroken and nondestructive in the home. He also rides nicely in the car. We have not been able to discover any bad habits at all! Calvin knows his basic commands and will be happy to learn whatever you want to teach him.
Calvin is so perfect he might make a great candidate for a Therapy Dog.
Calvin is a healthy boy who is neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations. All that's needed now is the very best home. We expect to have a lot of interest in Calvin.
Meet Largo, an adorable chocolate puppy of only 10 months old, she is not fully grown into her beautiful long legs, a few extra pounds and some good exercise and she will fill out into a beautiful girl.
Largo was a stray and no one came looking for this sweet pup, but Indilab did! We scooped her up as soon as she was available and just knew that we could find her a great Indilab family who would never abandon her again. She only deserved the best!
Largo would love basic pup training. She is learning her commands and doing great and so far she is doing beautifully on the leash, a pinch collar would help with her leash training. She even enjoys her hikes where she has canine buddies to enjoy nature and sunshine. She is even good off leash once you have a strong bond with her and when she is in a pack environment like a trail with other dogs.
Largo is young. Labradors remain puppies for 2 full years until their grown plates close. They have a very long toddler-hood compared to other breeds. Just because they look adultish at a year, they are not. They still have a whole other year to go before they are adult dogs. As such, they make mistakes so nothing on counters EVER. This girl is a counter surfer and she will get your medication and eat your breakfast.
Counter surfing is a problem with Labs and we know of three Labs of late who have died from getting into the other dog's medication, their owners medication, and sugarless gum (which has Xylatol and kills dogs). If you keep things on the counters this is not the dog for you.
She loves to chew, so lots of chew toys like nylabones and antlers. She likes toys, and she loves to play. Largo loves to swim! If you have a pool this girl will be the entertainment for the entire family and will show you how much she loves it! Swimming is her thing, she love to jump into the pool and see how far she can jump. She could even be a candidate for an agility class, she's that good!
She is a medium/high energy girl even for a puppy but needs her good daily exercise of at least an hour hike or jog and then another walk later on. Then she settles right in with the other dogs and is such a nice and sweet buddy.
Young pups don't do well left in the house alone. Remotes, phones, sunglasses, iPads, and any other expensive thing you don't want chewed, put away. If she chews it it’s your fault and not hers. She is a youngster and learning. Buy lots of toys and teach her they are hers.
Largo should go to a home with kids over age 10, as she is a wiggly youngster, she was never taught that jumping is not a good thing, she is learning in her foster home not to jump, she could knock down a child and not mean to hurt them, she thinks it a play thing. She should preferably go with another dog unless one person is home all day.
Largo is ok with cats, If the cat is dog savvy, She will chase them, meet them, they will swat her, and then it's over. They are her friend. She chases them to meet them because she wants to be friends. But cats being cats don't appreciate the ways of the dog world and will probably hide for a week or two or may hiss or scratch at her. If cats simply let her meet them, they will see she is no threat.
Largo is spayed, up to date on her vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Max! Max is a stunningly beautiful jet black English Labrador puppy of only 11 months! He has an oustanding temperament and a lovely playful energy!
Max is shiney jet black and compact beefy puppy with a perfect blocky head and a chunky otter tail. He has lovely purebred confirmation.
Max came to us from a person who bought him from a show breeder and fell on very hard times. She wanted him to find the very best home. We promised that Max would get the home he deserves.
Max is a mellow boy temperament wise but is a playful puppy too. As a puppy he still has a lot to learn in his training.
Max's new family should be prepared for lots of daily exercise, tennis ball throwing, puppy proofing, and leash training. Max has top knotch temperament and the sweetest personality you'll ever meet. He is a fast learner, wants to please, and is very smart. Training this boy is going to be a breeze.
His new owner should be prepared to teach leash walking maybe with a pinch collar or other training collar to correct him when he pulls. This should be an easy fix as long as he is getting his exercise and his owner is consistent.
Max is an AKC registered Labrador and is from a very good breeding program. We rarely see dogs of this caliber in rescue. Max really is the cream of the crop but he is a puppy and a puppy means training!
Max is wonderful with other dogs. He has excellent doggy manners. He likes to follow the other dogs around.
Be prepared to be stopped everywhere you take this boy because he is that beautiful. Everyone wants to comment on how handsome he is!
Max did well in the car and settled down pretty well. He will need to get used to car trips.
Max is also great with cats making him a good choice for homes with kitties.
Max is just a gorgous English Lab with solid temperament and unbelievalbe potential. He is a score for anyone lucky enough to adopt him.
Max is neutered and up to date on his vaccines.
Meet Pippi, an adorable and petite purebred chocolate female Labrador Retriever. Pippi is 5 years old with lighter brighter chocolate coat and and wonderful sweet personality
Pippi is a medium energy Lab and loves to chase the ball. She loves her walks and would make a wonderful walking, hiking or jogging partner. She is excellent with all other dogs and passes them nicely. She loves all dogs, all humans, and all living things!
Pippi came to us from a very nice military couple who's deployment meant they could no longer keep Pippi. She has been well loved and it shows.
Pippi knows her basic commands and is housebroken. She's non-destructive in the home and she loves her crate! She has been well crate trained and will lay right down when asked to go in. She really likes a crate if you have one. She will sleep the whole night through as well!
Pippi loves walking and will need some leashwork training to be perfect. A pinch training collar is great for Pippi and she is quite responsive to her person wanting to please.
Pippi loves her doggie toys and balls. She would like lots of shapes and sizes of sturdy balls and other fun things. We never recomment stuffed toys for dogs as a precaution although she seems fine with them. We prefer soft toys that are sturdy. Antlers and Nylabones are great too!
Pippi really loves the pool and swimming. She would enjoy swimming with you or your other dogs if you have a pool. She especially likes to jump in to retrieve her ball and is wonderful about bringing it back.
Pippi is a nice small 47lb frame! She is a little bit of a thing. Just a bon bon sized Labrador and so darn cute! For anyone looking for a smaller Lab, this girl sure fits the bill. She's scrumptiously petite!
Pippi will do well with another canine companion, or as your one and only if you do a lot with her. She was an only in her original home. She is wonderful with other dogs big and small and is fostered with a little Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a few other Labradors. By the way, Pippi also seems fine with the cats she has met!
If you have other friendly dogs or another single friendly canine, Pippi would love it. She is so good with other dogs. She will do great with a buddy. She will also be a wonderful single dog.
Pippi would love to go on a nice brisk walk each day or a jog. She's a little thing so she will be easy to jog with. She will also walk very well with a pinch collar as she gets used to your pace. It's easy to correct her pace because of her nice smaller size.
Pippi is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Elba, a beautiful purebred chocolate female Labrador Retriever. Elba is about 5-6 years old with a darling face and is deep dark chocolate with a little "latte" of gray on her chin. She is absolutely adorable!
One of the best thing about Elba other than her perfect temperament is her ability to look so cute in a variety of bandanas - especially pink one! After all, fashion matters!
Elba came to us from a local high kill shelter where no owner ever came for her. Not surprising for that area we are sad to say, but the day she became available to us is the day her life took a new road to real safety and love. Elba is an extremely sweet and easy girl and she will now recieve one of the best homes as an Indilab dog!
Elba is a medium to lower energy mellow girl. She is wonderful with all other dogs big and small as well and gentle and calm with cats, making her a good choice for families with kitties. She has a darlingly sweet temperament that is to die for. She is just plain delicious.
Typical to most rescue Labs, Elba is not crazy playful just now but will become a bit more flirty as she settles in. She will remain a low-key and calm girl. She is great for a companion for another sweet dog who is not overly active or hyper. She is just a love and just enjoys hanging out with the humans, kitties and other Labs in her foster home. The other Labs she is with love her right back too.
Elba is discovering doggie toys and has selected her "favorite" one. She carries her toy all around with her. It's adorable! We don't think she ever had toys to play with and as she settles into a new home, she would enjoy a few nice toys. It's wonderful to watch this angel become a loved companion after what we can only imagine was a life in a yard with little attention. She sure is a love bug.
Elba is well behaved in the house and nondestructive. She is housebroken and is now letting us know if she has to go out to potty. She even uses the doggie door in her foster home - going in and out with ease as she desires. Like most dogs, she would love a doggie door but it will be easy to accustom her to a home without one.
Elba will do well with another canine or feline companion, or as your one and only. Of course if she is your one and only, it is best that you are home more often than not so she doesn't need to be all alone for so many hours.
Her calm nature makes her a good candidate to go to work with you if you like or you can even certify her to do some therapy work! She definitely has the personality for it. What's more, she is very good in the car making her a wonderful road trip or errand companion on days that are not too hot.
Elba is learning quickly basic commands in her foster home. She wants to please and is very easy to work with.
Elba would love to go on a nice walk each day. She does nicely on leash and does not pull making her a pleasure to walk. She passes other dogs nicely and is friendly to all. What a nice walking partner!
Elba is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Cooper, an adorable approximately 7 year old male purebred Labrador Retriever. Cooper is a nice medium to smaller sized boy at 65 lbs and is a pretty cream color. He also has the most darling smile you will ever see!
Cooper originally came to us from a high kill shelter over a year ago. He was immediately pulled by one of our volunteers as soon as we met him and saw what a prize he was. This boy is exceptional and beautiful and was adopted very quickly as one would imagine. Sadly Coopers adopter fell and injured himself quick seriously and could no longer care for a companion animal. As heartbroken as we are for him and for Cooper, we are focusing now on finding Cooper the most unbelievable home we can.
Cooper is a brightly active and friendly Labrador. He loves other dogs and adores his humans. He loves his walks and hikes and would really enjoy outings with his person but he also loves his indoor cuddle time and just being a close loving best buddy. He is a wonderful companion.
Cooper has some mild arthritis controlled with very inexpensive medication. He just needs his nice daily walks and a good diet to feel fine. In this regard he is just like almost every other Lab we have met.
Cooper is in great shape and likes to exercise so keeping him fit is easy. He does best on a healthy grain free food as he gets allergic to grain like so many of our Labradors. Due to the boredom and less activity of late, Cooper was licking his front legs which has resolved.
Cooper knows his commands and wants to please. At times he will smile and happily pull on his leash but corrects easily with a quick reminder. He is non-destructive in the house and just a really good boy.
Cooper is a really nice, super sweet and special boy who deserves a wonderful fur-ever home. He is a dream dog and will make you so very happy if you are lucky enough to call him yours.
Cooper is a healthy boy who is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.
Meet Kelsee, a sweet, playful and darling yellow female Labrador Retriever of 5 years. Kelsee is pretty yellow girl of medium size with a pretty buttery coat.
This adorable girl hasn't stopped smiling since she was sprung from the shelter by one of our volunteers. You have to wonder why this sweet girl would be in the shelter to begin with! We were told that she was turned in by her owner because they had 5 young children and didn't have the time for Kelsee.
She had been living outside with zero company. Poor girl only asked for love and attention and this family couldn't provide it to her. Well we knew we could find Kelsee a family that would be honored to welcome her Into their home and would cherish, adore and love her to pieces!
Kelsee is about 5 years old and is an adorably playful yet calm young girl. She loves to show you love. She enjoys balls and toys and will repay you with all the fun you can ever imagine. She loves, loves, loves toys and she loves other dogs too!
Kelsee has learned her basic commands, sit, down, and give paw now and then. She wants to please and could learn as much as you want to teach. She is very motivated by play and attention.
Kelsee is fostered with 5 other Labs, a King Charles Cavalier and 2 cats and gets along with all of them. She is not food or treat aggressive, nor toy possessive. She shares nicely and smiles constantly.
Kelsee is working on her leash manners and pulls a bit but walks perfectly on a pinch collar with no pulling at all. She was never walked in her last home so walks will be a wonderful part of her new life and she will learn fast.
Kelsee would love to watch movies with you, go on hikes, dog parks and the beach. She needs her good daily exercise. She loves to cuddle, hang out and play with her toys. She is learning what being part of family is all about. Her new family will need to commit to continue leash training and basic training. She is already learning in her foster home that is fun to learn and get attention.
Labs can be counter surfers and her new family will need to make sure that the counters are free from items that would put her in danger.
Kelsee is housebroken, but like all our rescue buddies, could have an accident in her home as she gets use to her new space.
Kelsee is up to date on her shots, spayed and microchipped.
Say hello to Sinclair, a super sweet, cheerful, loving 4-year-old Yellow Labrador Retriever girl, with the most fetching smile!
If you are seeking a darling, perfectly tempered dog, look no further. Sinclair is the one. She is absolutely the most gentle, obedient, calm yet fun girl who defnitely will do her best with another canine companion. Let your kids play with her. Let the kittens sleep in her bed. Bring her out to the chicken coop, whatever it is, Sinclair is always the Doggie Lama of Peace!
This slightly chunky girl is wonderful. She loves all dogs and in so enjoying her foster home and the other Labs. She is getting lots of exercise and good grain free low cal food and she will take no time to be perfectly in shape.
Sinclair will do well with cat and even chickens if you desire. She is very animal friend. But she must be with another dog in her home as she is a dog who does best with canine company.
Sinclair has a very cheerful and smiling spirit. She loves to be close to her person and get love and kisses. She is very focused on her person - lying at your feet, and following you around like most Labs do. She prefers to be with other dogs and have lots of company.
Sinclair does not bark, whine or counter-surf, although all Lab owners should keep foods, meds, gum and any other potentially harmful items well out of reach. Macadamia nuts, chocolate, chewing gum, toothpaste, grapes and raisins, onions, apple seeds, avocado, alcohol, garlic, caffeine, milk and dairy, persimmons, peaches and plums are dangerous for dogs.
Sinclair loves her hikes and would love a hiking or walking companion. She's great off leash so a fabulous trail partner or to go on trails with your horses. She would definitely like her exercise every day with her other doggie companion(s)!
She is perfect off leash, completely trustworthy and obedient. She stays either on your heels or 10 feet in front checking back with you all the time. She looks to her person and wants to please. On leash, she never pulls.
She loves her car rides too and is a very good girl in the car. She would love to accompany you on errands.
Sinclair is healthy but is focused on losing a few pounds. With daily exercise and quality grain free food, she’ll be at her goal in no time at all!! She is completely housebroken, although an accident could happen getting used to her new forever home.
Sinclair will do best in a home with other dogs, lots of attention and daily exercise. She will be a nice family dog and is a good choice for a family with children.
Sinclair is micro-chipped, vaccinated and spayed.
Please bring a Martingale collar with you. While Sinclair is extraordinarily easy to handle, we require them so our precious Labs can never slip out of their collars at just the wrong moment.
Meet sweet Lucy, a fun, lightly playful, gentle purebred English Labrador of 8 years. Lucy is a show quality, beautifully bred chocolate love with a nice blocky head and a smaller petite frame. She is playful and loves other dogs! When we took her to her vet visit, she played with the dogs in the waiting area and she just is adorable!
Lucy deserves only the very best home that will treasure and spoil her as she has had a hard life. Used as a breeding dog, Lucy has lived most of her life inside of a kennel where she got little direct human love. She was shown and titled and then bred. Eventually her breeder/owner became less attentive. We are grateful she was given to us and we want her to get what she deserves!
True to her Labrador breed, Lucy just wants to love. It's unbelievable. She is a bit shy at first, but warms up quickly.
Ludy is a very healthy girl! Besides being spayed, Lucy has had bloodwork run, she has had her teeth cleaned and her ears tended to, Her bloodwork showed a very healthy girl!
Lucy was well groomed and brushed. Her coat was a little dull but we already see a shiney deep chocolate coat emerging! She is going to be the envy of the neighborhood.
Lucy is a lightly playful girl and loves every dog she meets. Lucy will do her best with another sweet dog to be her best buddy.
Lucy will also do great with cats and even chickens. She is very gentle and calm and wouldn't harm anything.
Lucy is a lower energy mellow dog and will not pull at all but loves her walks. She will pass and greet other dogs nicely and is doing great on the leash.
Lucy is housebroken too and non destrucitve in the home and car.
Lucy loves the other two dogs in her foster home. Both are Labradors and both love Lucy right back. She is an easy and fun dog to have.
Lucy is a very special and deserving girl.
Lucy is a show quality dog so she is truly beautiful. But her beauty is nothing compared to her heart. Dogs like this are one in a million. She is an angel.
Lucy is spayed, up to date on vaccines, has been groomed, had teeth cleaned and bloodwork done. She is healthy and ready to find her new amazing forever home where she will be the treasure she is for the rest of her life.
Meet Savvy, a beautiful purebred chocolate female labrador retriever. Savvy is about 6 to 7 years old and extremely sweet. Savvy is very pretty. She has a darling face and a very nice field conformation. She is a deep dark chocolate with a little "latte" of gray on her paws which is absolutely adorable!
Savvy was turned into us by her owner who moved into a condo with Savvy and two small dogs. Because Savvy is such a good girl, the landlord was not aware that there were three dogs on the premises or that one of the dogs was over 30 pounds, their maximum allowed doggie size. Recently she was discovered and that is when we were contacted to find this sweet heart a new home.
Savvy is wonderful with other dogs big and small and very good with cats as well. She basically ignores kitties, making her a good choice for feline families. She is a medium sized female lab with medium energy and a darlingly sweet personality.
Savvy likes being with other dogs but is low-key and not crazy playful. She is great for a companion dog for a senior or as a buddy for a youngster. Either way, she is lovely. She may become more playful as she relaxes into her new home but really just enjoys hanging out with the other Labs she is fostered with.
We think that she could become more interested in toys as she settles in but is definitely not a crazy toy dog. It would be nice to provide a bully stick now and then for her to chew on. Her former owner did not provide rawhides or bully sticks to her and they are important to keep teeth clean.
Savvy is very good in the house and nondestructive. She is housebroken and will let you know when she has to go out. We think she would like a doggie door because she does not like to be left outside in the yard and would appreciate being able to come in and out at will.
Savvy will do her best with another friendly canine companion or where someone is home most of the time. She likes to be with her person and is happiest when she is not left all alone. Her calm nature makes her a good candidate to go to work with you now and then and she is very good in the car making her a wonderful errand companion on days that are not too hot.
Savvy knows her basic commands and is eager to please. She is low-key but would love to go on a nice walk every day. She does nicely on leash so is a pleasure to walk. And she passes other dogs nicely too. What a nice walking partner!
Once settled in her new home, she may be a cadidate for therapy training and she looks downright precious in pink! Her foster says she is a people dog and sweet as sugar. Savvy could also work as a companion to a retired person as she is gentle ad calm.
Savvy is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccines, and microchipped. She could use an anesthesia free teeth cleaning in the future if you like.
Savvy is fostered with other Labradors and kitties in beautiful Tijunga.
Meet Chance, the happiest, go-lucky, adorable, pure bred Golden Retriever ever. Just look at that smile! Chance is a 5-6 yr old male Golden who will steal your heart once you set on eyes on him. His personality equals his good looks and temperament and he is a sweet goofy fella.
Chance wants to be part of the family. He will shower you with love and loyality, only asking for love and affection in return. This guy really is a wonderful dog in every way. Nothing but wags, wiggles, smile and sweet golden dreams.
Chance adores playing fetch and tennis balls are his favorite toy! His new family should have lots and lots of tennis balls for him to entertain the entire family. Exercising him is very easy if you have a Chuck-it and a ball. And once, done, he is great about settling.
Chance came to us by no fault of his own. Our volunteer rescued him from an Inland Empire Shelter where is sat waiting for his owner to come take him home. Poor Chance waited and waited for days and days, his owner knew he was there but was too busy to come get Chance. Well shame on him, but lucky for us to be able to help Chance get a much better, more loving home. Dogs like Chance live their lives neglected and in back yards without being appreciated. Not anymore. Not for this guy. Chance won the hearts of all the shelter workers and our volunteers. Whoever adopts him will be so very lucky.
Chance rides well in the car and would love to join his new family on outings on not-so-hot days, and he is great about sharing car space with other dogs too! He gets along with other dogs big and small and is tolerant of cats as long as the cat is dog savvy but he will chase so for now, no cats for Chance.
Chance knows his basic commands, sit, stay and down. He is eager to please and will be a breeze to train further if you desire. He is working on his housebreaking and doing fabulously but could still have an accident while he adjusts to his new home. He is not food or treat aggressive and behaves well in the house. He is not destructive and shares space with the other Labs and Goldens well!
Chance walks very good on a leash and will do nicely going on neighborhood strolls. He would be wonderful at dog beach, dog parks and would love the occasional long hike with his family. We think Chance would love a swim now and then and enjoyed his bath at his foster home. In a nutshell, this fella will do well in most any situation.
Chance wants a home where he will get tons and tons of attention and love and not be left alone all day in a back yard. This boy is a treasure and wants to be a true family memer. He deserves to have only the best home where he will be cherished and adored. We think he would like another friendly canine companion although is you are around most of the time he should do fine. He would do ok going to work with you, or training for therapy work. He loves people and company.
Chance is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. All that's needed now is the best fur-ever home!
Meet Hunter, a 5-year old stunning Labrador who wants nothing more than to make his owner happy, and with that face it certainly makes everyone happy.
Hunter came to us by no fault of his own, he was a loved and a well taken care of boy, his owner purchased him as a young pup and everything was going great, well the owner now has a family and unfortunately the new baby in the family has severe allergies and poor Hunter had to be outside for the health of the baby.
His owners knew that this special boy deserved so much more and asked us for help, which were happy to do. This is such a nice Labrador that it will be no trouble finding him the most amazing home!
Hunter knows his basic commands, sit, stay, down, he is not a jumper and is good with all dogs, big and small. Hunter is okay around cats but he might chase them since he wants everyone to play with him.
Hunter has a lot of playful energy especially when it comes to swimming. He was already in his fosters families pool chasing a ball before he could even get to know all his foster sibling’s! He would love a home with a pool!
He loves to play fetch with balls, bones, etc. He is playful yet he knows when to stop. Hunter would do great going to the beach, hikes, friendly doggie outings and have play dates with other dogs.
Hunter has been an only dog all his life and would probably do great as a one and only dog or with another friendly dog in the home. Hunter is pretty good on a leash but pulls and bit and needs some reinforcement. His new owners will need to work on his leash manners, but Hunter is willing to learn. Hunter is housebroken and crate trained, he is non destructive in the house and has good house manners.
Hunter also is great in the car and would love to join his new family on outings.
If you're looking for a happy, friendly, fun loving, easy-going, handsome Labrador, Hunter just might be your boy!
Meet Abby, an adorable pint sized female purebred chocolate Labrador. Abby is an English lab, meaning she is a compact blocky girl with a nice conformation, an otter tail, and beautiful small round cat paws
Abby is 4-5 years old, and is an AKC registered Labrador from show lines. Abby came to us from a questionable situation where she was not getting the care she deserved.
Abby is slightly shy but warms up quickly. She is a very petite girl And has a darling smile. She is a very dark rich brown color with brown eyes. She really is an absolutely gorgeous little bit of an English Lab.
Abby is wonderful with other dogs and cats. She will do beautifully with another more submissive friendly canine companion. She is lightly playful but is not a boisterous heavily playful dog. She prefers another dog who is on the calm side as well.
Abby is still learning her commands and so far she knows sit. She is learning all of the other basic commands and is eager to please. She is also learning to walk on a leash – something she has never done before.
This adorable munchkin, as calm as she is, has moments of pure friskiness! She will get extremely playful and bark playfully. It's absolutely adorable. Then of course she always comes back to being the com, laid-back, Abby.
Abby never had toys and so she is only now learning what they are. She doesn't know the difference between certain toys and certain human objects. For example she has so far the steak and a throw pillow for a toy and has chewed up a plastic bowl. As she is shown which toys are hers, she does very very well. As she is learning, it's a good idea to keep an eye out and to put things that might be mistaken for toys safely away.
Abby is now pretty much housebroken. She is letting us know when she needs to go potty, and she is going in the same spot and getting lots of praise.
Abby may do her best in a ranch style home. She has fostered in a home with stairs but so far she has not learned to use them. She's a little timid of them. Because she is such a pint sized pup, her foster dad has been carrying her up and down the stairs.
We would prefer to place Abby in a home without young children so that she could learn what it is like to be part of the family without the added stress of young active and often loud children. What do you think she will do wonderfully with older kids. We think she will do fine with young children to, however we think it would be best at this time that her new home the one without youngsters or toddlers.
Abby loves to lay on her back and get her belly rubbed. She will smile and smile at you while you do it. She really is one of the cutest labradors we have seen.
Abby is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, and microchip.

Goose came to us with his brother Maverick who is listed below. Maverick is slightly smaller at about 95 lbs and it's hard to tell the boys apart!
Goose is a very young fella with a wonderful temperament. He is not aggressive in any way and is lovely with all dogs big and small. He loves to be part of the gang romping and sharing toys.
This angel has a fabulous personality and will be a perfect boy once he has training. At his age, he will need the typical teenager training of learning not to jump, to walk nicely on leash, and build up his house manners. He has not received much if any training and his new family will need to commit to owning a young adorable guy who needs his education!
Goose is housebroken and knows sit. He wants to please and will be easy to train. He is wonderful in the car and a good boy in the house after his exercise and playtime.
Like all youngsters this boy should have appropriate toys and playtime and exercise. Chewies, chew toys, and other fun things will be very nice indeed!
Goose loves to be brushed! He will sit nicely and take in the attention. He will be very easy to groom and handle.
This is truly a wonderful boy with a beautiful happy smile and outstanding disposition just like his brother. The two boys are stars!
Goose is not interested in the pool or water from what we can tell. He is in foster with a pool and did not seem to want to go in. Of course you never know with a Golden!
He will do fine with other dogs and children and is also good with cats.
Goose is a heathy purebred love bug. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped.

Meet Madison, a squishy marshmallow cream puff of a lab. Madison is about seven years old and a medium sized English Labrador Retriever.
We love this girls light cream coat and typical English demenor, calmness and smile. Wiggling and smiling are her specialties but that is just the beginning with this sweet, sweet Labrador.
Madison came to us with her owner was no longer able to care for her. She wanted her to find the very best home and we promised we would make that happen.
Madison is a beautifully bred girl with the light cream coat, blocky head, and otter tail. She has a beautiful confirmation and is ever so slightly on the chunky side. We think it is adorable. It will be easy to shad these few excess pounds now that she is on a good grain free food and getting daily playful exercise.
Madison is a typical English labrador with a perfect temperament. She is lightly playful and loves all of the other dog she has fostered with both big and small. She even loves the cats. We think she will do wonderfully with children and even chickens.
This gentle sweet and funny girl loves to play, loves to share toys with her foster siblings, and enjoys contemplating getting in the pool at her foster home. All the other dogs go in and swim and we don't think it will be long before Madison does too.
Madison walks beautifully off leash next to her person and will stay with the pack. However once on leash, she has a tendency to pull. She corrects easily as she is eager to please.
This angel loves every human and every animal. She has absolutely no aggression and is not possessive with food nor toys. She loves to be by her person and be pet or brushed. She is definitely a people dog but we do feel she'll do best in a home with one or two other friendly lightly playful dogs.
Madison sleeps through the night on her bed without a peep. She is housebroken and nondestructive in the home. She also rides nicely in the car. We have not been able to discover any bad habits at all! Madison knows her basic commands and will be happy to learn whatever you want to teach her.
We can see that Madison has had a couple of litters of puppies. We have no idea whatever happened to them. We hope they all found good homes. This calm sweet and playful girl is truly a star. Her new family will be very lucky.
Madison is a healthy girl who is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, and microchipped. All that's needed now is the very best home.
Oh boy, look at Doug! Doug is an unbelievably gorgeous 4 year old English Labrador Retriever. He is a light cream color and has the most darling face. He is adorable.
Doug came to us in sad shape. He lived on the streets and was underweight with a bad ear infection. He also had a terrible laceration on his foot and evidence of a previously embedded collar telling us he was chained up for so long that he actually grew up so much that his collar no longer fit. His skin had started to grow around it.
Although clearly a victim of serious neglect and cruelty, this Labrador has the temperament of a therapy dog. He carries no grudge toward humans and wants nothing more than to wag, be pet, and give love.
Doug is a wonderful size. He's a nice stocky short coupled Lab with really great conformation. He has that killer blocky Labrador head, otter tail, and round cat paws. He is a show quality Labrador in our opinion. We think he was used as a breeding dog by someone who paid a lot of money for a high end dog, but then just neglected him.
Doug is wonderful in every way. He loves to retrieve a rope or the ball and will return it nicely. He is amazing with other dogs and is currently fostered with a hyperactive Australian Shepard who he tollerates and gets along great with. The Aussie will bounce all around and all over Doug. She even herds him which almost any other dog would take issue with. Not Doug. He is the most patient kind dog around. He puts up with quite a big and still likes his foster sister a lot.
Doug is good with all dogs and humans. We thing he could easily certify to do therapy work if you wanted to. He is patient and kind and only wants to please.
Doug is now housebroken and knows his basic commands. He never had any training so it's fabulous how quickly he is learning and wants to learn more! Doug will sit, lay, stay and even come to a whistle.
Doug loves any attention he can get. He enjoys getting a bath and being rubbed and scrubbed. He likes to be brushed and pet. He loves to be with his humans or other dogs and is a true household companion.
Doug is also a very calm dog despite his playfullness. He loves to take long relaxing naps on a soft doggie bed. He probably never had a bed before. He has excellent house manners too and is great in the car.
Doug has been treated for his wounds and ears. He is gaining weight on a healthy grain free diet. He is getting more beautiful by the day and in no time this fella will be the most gorgeous Lab in any neighborhood. Sadly he will always have a scar on his front foot.
Doug has no aggressive tendancies and is an extremely polite eater. He love his treats and cookies and takes them ever so gently.
It is so sad that a treasure like Doug was tied up on a chain and neglected but his new life will make up for his horrors. He deserves the best home on the planet.
Doug is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and ready for love.
Meet McKinley! McKinley is a darlingly cute chocolate female Labrador Retriever. She is about 3-4 years of age and medium sized with beautiful burnt sugar eyes and a sweet expression reflective of her gently playful personality.
McKinley is an easy going female Labrador who is wonderful in the home and pretty well behaved although she will need training as she was never taught her commands or other house manners. She seems to be already potty trained and is using the doggie door! She is not destructive and wants to please so teaching her will be easy-peasy!
She enjoys a soft bed and a toy and she looks fabulous in pink! She is a mellow girl who would be a great family love bug and would even do great going to work with her person.
If you like to take your pup in the car with you, McKinley is wonderful. She will lay down and enjoy the breeze through the window and be a buddy on your cruise. She would be a fabulous girl to take in your mobile home or on your boat as she is a wonderful companion and likes to be close.
At dog beach or the park, she would be pleasant with the other dogs and humans and she will also do nicely meeting other dogs on her neighborhood strolls.
It is hard to believe this girl ended up in a shelter given her outstanding temperament and darling looks. But we can see she has been left outside as her coat is sunburnt and needs a good brushing. She will really be beautiful as that coat gets darker and deeper. We are so happy that she is with us and we have the opportunity to find her an unbelievable fur-ever home.
McKinley is great with cats too! She loves them and is gentle with them. She will even share a bed with the kitty.
She shares space and toys wonderfully with other dogs and is such a lovely doll. It breaks our hearts that she ever ended up in a shelter but we know that will never happen to her again.
McKinley is a healthy girl who would love a nice stroll each day or even a trip to the beach or park. She is easy yet fun, mellow yet lightly playful, sweet yet fiesty and just plain adorable.
We think she will do well with children and would be a great family pet or even a wonderful dog for an older couple. She is one of those dogs who will do well in most situations.
She would of course like a home where she will get lots of love and attention and not be alone in a yard all day as she once was. She deserves to be treasured and adored and anyone meeting her will want to give her the world.
McKinley wants to make you happy. She is a typical Lab who wants to please her human.
If you are looking for a really sweet special Labrador, McKinley fits the bill. And if you have treasured cats, you can feel secure about her with them.
McKinley is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Bear 6 adopted!
Meet Bear, a darling 1 1/2 year old jet black English Labrador. He's a nice sized boy with a blocky head, perfect conformation and a soft thick coat. He's absolutely a gorgeous show-quality Lab just like his brother Prince (also available).
Bear came to us with his littermate Prince, who is also a darling purebred black fella. Same size, same look, and same handsomeness. They look so much alike, their personalities are really all that is different about them. Bear is more confident, playful and a true medium energy young Labrador.
Bear is a beautiful black male. He is a playful and excitable puppy at not even two years old yet. He will need good daily exercise such as a hike, a jog, multiple long walks or even swimming each and every day.
He may do best with another friendly canine companion who likes to play. He is also a great candidate for dog park and dog beach because he loves to play and is amazing with all other dogs big and small.
He's still a pup and so lots of nice chew toys and exercise required. But he settles beautifully in the house after exercise. He is not destructive but as a puppy, you never know. They can surprise you! Thus chew toys and putting away things like remotes, sunglasses, and other curious chewable items away is important!
Bear is well on his way to being fully housebroken, but he is likely to make a mistake in his new home, so it will be important for his new family to show him his new potty routine by taking him outside often and a couple friendly reminders should he make a mistake. He is currently being crate trained and is doing great!
Bear wants to please. He has some commands to learn, but he really does want to please and he will train up well. He is also very, very smart, so he takes correction very well.
Bear is still learning to walk well on leash and can pull quite a bit at this time. So his new owner will want to have both a pinch training collar to make training fast and easy as well as a martingale collar to prevent this young boy from ever slipping out of his collar. Indi Lab Rescue only uses martingale collars and we ask our adopters to bring a martingale with them. It is the safest way to keep your dog with you while they become yours!
Bear is really a wonderful pick for a family dog. He will treasure you forever and will be such a good dog with training and exercise. You can't go wrong with Bear!
Bear is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Riley 4 adopted!
Meet Riley, a 100% darling buttercream delight! This purebred 6-7 year old angel is just lovely in every way!
Riley is another one of those very special therapy quality Labradors. He has nothing but love for all dogs, cats, and humans and would love to be your best friend.
Riley is an easy going playful darling who loves swimming and squeaky toys. He is wonderfully playful with other dogs - even little persnicky trouble makers. He is the best of both calm and easy, yet playful, funny, dopey and active (in just the right way!)
You would never know that this boy came to us from a shelter. And believe it or not, his former owner knew he was there and just left him. He should be confused, depressed or show some sign of loosing his home, but he doesn't. He just shows happy and wiggly love and he smiles non-stop.
The day he came to us was the day his happy life began. Riley has some flystrike on both ears meaning he lived outside with flys constantly biting. The flystrike will heal nicely but it's still very sad that someone let it happen to begin with. He is a healthy boy and shows some wear on his teeth consistant with former flea issues. Makes sense since he was neglected but no more! Riley also has a small fatty lipoma on his flank which is not an issue and causes him no problem.
Riley loves to jump in the pool, retrieve his toy, smile, wiggle, be near you and be near the other dogs. He is wonderful at sharing his space and toys and has zero treat, toy, or food possession issues.
Riley is what we would call a "bombproof dog" meaning nothing really bothers him in any situation. He is just a happy typical Labrador.
Riley love, loves, loves the pool so he may want to get in now and then. If you have a pool, he would be quite happy. If you don't he wouldn't mind dog beach and because he is so friendly, he'll do great off leash in that environment. He is not water obsessed but you will notice he is wet in most of his photos. Ahh the Labrador! They just love the water!
This fella wants to please and love. He looks to his person to make them happy. And he wants to be friends with everyone. He loves to play, be with his doggie friends and enjoy life. We think he will be happiest with a home with another friendly dog as company and he would love someone around a lot if possible (though not necessary). He is also a great dog to take to work with you because he is so well behaved!
Riley is just an adorable, therapy quality dog. He really has it all. Personality, sweetness, temperament and looks.
Riley is good in the house and car, not destructive, shares toys well, loves to play, loves to swim and is good with children. He is housebroken and walks well on leash, pulling slightly. He knows basic commands and is willing to learn more. He is happy to be your body pillow if you want or go on a hike.
If therapy work is your game, Riley is a prime candidate for certification. He'd be great visiting in a children's hospital sharing smiles. Or he love to just be your best friend. He will be great with kids.
Riley is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and current on flea meds.
We expect to be very picky on his home choice and many will inquire so please be certain you are already homechecked and approved.
Meet Prince, a jet black beautiful purebred Labrador. This fella is 1 1/2 years old and a gorgeous English Lab. He's a nice sized boy who is in great shape and a nice size of 80 pounds. He has a block head, a fabulous conformation and is one gorgeous handsome stud!
Prince is sweet as sugar. He came to us with his littermate Bear, from a family that could no longer keep them. Having moved into a smaller place, the boys were not getting the attention and exercise all young Labs need. Prince is a young boy who is a little timid at first. He will go best with another friendly, happy go lucky dog companion.
He is great with other dogs, curious, friendly and somewhat playful. He would love another playful friend to live with.
Prince and his littermate Bear are identical twins. In person it is almost impossible to tell them apart other than their personalities as Prince is a bit more shy. They both love other dogs and are very handsome boys!
Prince is still learning what it's like to be an indoor dog - television, vacuum cleaner and other indoor noises are all new to him as he wasn't allowed indoors much in his previous home. He has a great start on his housebreaking, but will need reminders in his new home as he learns a new routine with his forever family.
Prince is non-destructive so long as he has had his exercise and has appropriate chew and other toys. No food or medications can be left on your counter. All labs can counter surf and should not be able to reach any items that could be dangerous to them. Prince has not shown himself to counter surf but he for sure can and will try it. He is young and likes to check things out.
Prince will do best with another friendly companion. He is great with his brother but both are separated now in foster homes after first being fostered together and we have learned that they do great apart also. Both are doing beautifully with the other foster dogs in their respective foster homes.
Prince is a nice medium energy boy. He does need good daily exercise at his age, but will settle very well after to be a calmer companion.
Prince is learning his leash manners. He can pull so is best walked on a training collar. But he does correct well and with a little bit of reminders, he will walk in step with you. He wants to please and will be very easy to train.
Prince is a sweet boy, but as a timid boy, would do best with a family that will help him learn all the world has to offer is a fun exciting adventure! Due to his initial shyness and need for attention and training, kids over age 10 are best for this boy.
Prince is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped and is ready for his new fur-ever home.
Meet Flapjack, the happiest most adorable purebred Golden Retriever you will meet! Flapjack is 4 years old and a gorgeous as he is (and he really is!), it is his temperament that is so beautiful.
Flapjack is a very special therapy quality fellow. He has absolutely no aggression and could easily be a therapy dog. That said he is also young and fun and wonderfully playful with other dogs - even little bossy ones, so he brings the best of both worlds - mellow and easy, yet fiesty and fun!
You would never know that this boy came to us because his owner passed away. He should be confused, depressed or show some sign of loosing his home, but he doesn't. He is an in the moment kind of guy and every second of life for Flapjack is happy and wonderous.
If your day is gloomy, don't worry. One look at Flapjacks goofy smile and all is right with the world! He has a contagious optimism and makes everyone - human, canine, and kitty - feel good.
Flapjack seems to like the pool so he may want to get in now and then. He wouldn't mind dog beach and because he is so friendly, he'll do great off leash in that environment. We think he will be equally happy without a pool. He is not water obsessed.
This fella wants to please. He looks to his person to make them happy. And he wants to be friends with everyone. He is smitten with a same-age female Labrador in his foster home and has equally embraced the other Labs and even the little bossy dog. He loves to play, kiss his doggie friends and enjoy life.
Flapjack is a healthy, stunningly beautiful, well cared for, therapy quality dog. He is a large boy and a gentle bearcub. He really has it all.
This kid is good in the house and car, not destructive, shares toys well, loves to play, loves to swim and is good with children. He is housebroken and walks well on leash, pulling slightly. He knows basic commands and is willing to learn more. He is happy to be your body pillow if you want or go on a hike.
If therapy work is your game, Flapjack is a prime candidate for certification. He'd be great visiting in a children's hospital sharing smiles. Or he love to just play with another friendly dog.
They don't come much better than Flapjack.
Flapjack is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and fully groomed.
We expect to be very picky on his home choice and many will inquire so please be certain you are already homechecked and approved.
Diesel 2 adopted!
Introducing Diesel 2, a stunningly handsome AKC registered Labrador Retriever puppy of 11 months. Diesel was born on June 25, 2016. He is still a baby!
Diesel has a jet black shiny beautiful coat, amber eyes and a nice otter tail. He is just gorgeous!
This fella was purchased from a breeder at 8 weeks but his former owner did not consider that having a puppy and working full time is never a good idea. Needless to say, Diesel got little attention, socialization, exercise, or love. His purchaser wanted more for him and that is where we came in.
Diesel is incredibly sweet and loving. He will melt your heart. He's a medium sized puppy and still growning for 2 full years so we expect he will get a little bigger and fill out but will be a medium sized Labby. He has a very pretty conformation and is at a good weight. He is truly a gorgeous purebred Labrador!
Diesel is still a puppy and needs his daily exercise. He LOVES the pool. We mean he really, really, really loves the pool. He loves sharing the pool with his foster labby siblings and he is a good retriever. He love going on family hikes with the other dogs and meets other dogs beautifully. Diesel is a medium energy Labrador and after a nice round of exercise, he settles very well in the house.
Diesel would love a home with another friendly young Lab to be best friends with and play with. His favorite home would have a pool, another young dog, and at least one owner who likes to go on short hikes a couple times a week or on the weekend. After his activities, Diesel can be seen passed out and so cute.
Diesel will chase kitties and doest get the concept of being gentle with them. He will need a cat free home. We think he will do ok with children over age 8 and might really enjoy it! He likes the little human girl he is fostered with and likes swimming with her in the pool.
Diesel has a great temperament and enormous potential to be an amazing family pet. He needs a committed owner who is up for the standard puppy training for a Lab his age and where he will get lots of play and exercise time.
He is a really good boy!
Diesel is up to date on his vaccines, microchipped and neutered.
Meet Hunter! Hunter is a beautiful five-year-old, chocolate, purebred Labrador Retriever male. Hunter is slightly chunky and has the appearance of being an adorable brown teddy bear.
Hunter has always been a well loved, well cared for dog. He came to us due to a family tragedy. Hunter's owner died and Hunter went to another family member. In short order, that family member also died. Hunter then made his way to yet another family member who worked all the time but desperately wanted Hunter to have a perfect forever home.
We were contacted and knew that we had to do all we could to ensure that this big teddy bear of a boy gets the very best home after all he's been through.
True to his breed, Hunter seems to bear no ill will and shows no effects of the tragedies befallen him. He is a chipper happy delight. He has lots of playful energy and his favorite thing to do is chase a tennis ball - especially if that tennis ball is being thrown into a pool. Hunter absolutely loves to swim and we would love for him to find a home where he will get to go swimming on a regular basis.
Hunter is wonderful with dogs big and small. He gets along with all. He is a great family dog and will do well in a home where he'll get his good daily exercise because Hunter is not a couch potato. A good walk and a good ball throw will keep him happy. Then Hunter can settle nicely into the home and be very very calm.
In many ways Hunter is still like a puppy. He loves to chew his chew toys and he has cute puppy energy. He needs to be provided with bully sticks, Nila bones, and rawhide rolls too. Hunter has been known to chew up a pair of leather shoes. After all to a dog who likes to chew, leather shoes are nothing more than a chew toy. So closet doors closed, leather shoes put away, and plenty of chew toys will do the trick.
Hunter is housebroken and uses the doggie door to go potty. He knows his basic commands and he loves to go for walks. Hunter definitely pulls on the leash and needs to wear a pinch collar. His new owner will need to work with him and he will do fine. Because he is chunky, we think he had not been walked much in his previous life even though he was well loved.
Hunter is has that squishy Labby face and a nice thick shiny chocolate coat. He doubles as a body pillow. He loves attention and he really is just a happy dog who smiles all the time.
Since Hunter is chubby, his new owners will want to keep him on a reasonable amount of food each day and remember to give him his good daily exercise. We think he would love a weekly hike or even a daily hike if you are up for it.
No kitties for Hunter as he is not gentle with them and chases them.
Hunter is a big gentle boy. He really is the teddy bear of your dreams if you are ready for an active fun young lab.
Hunter is neutered and up-to-date on his vaccines.
Meet Darby! This beautiful purebred English Labrador is a light cream color with a nice blocky head and an adorable face He is about 7 years old and has the happiest, calmest and sweetest personality. Darby is a mellow, easy-going boy, with excellent house manners. He doesn't jump or get up on furniture and is well mannered, housebroken and even uses the doggie door.
True to his Labrador nature, Darby loves every dog, cat and person he meets! He is fostered with other Labs, a small dog and a catl. He ignores the cat making his a great candidate for homes with kitties. Darby is so good, he can often be seen sharing a dog bed with one of the other dogs and he loves playing an easy going game of tug with his labbie siblings.
A dog this wonderful should never be found in a high kill shelter but that is just where we found this angel. He was in rough shape telling us he had been pretty neglected, yet he wiggled and wagged like a good boy. Needless to say we took him home.
Darby was overweight when we got him. After initial vetting and bloodwork, we discovered Darby was slightly hypothyroid. We started him on thyroid meds and a good diet and exercise plan and we are happy to report that Darby is now at a healthy weight.
Darby was also limping when we rescued him and after a trip to our best orthopedic vet, we discovered he had torn his ACL and would require surgery to repair it. Darby has now had his full TPLO surgery to repair his torn ACL and is recovering beautifully!!
Darby absolutely loves his 2-3 short walks a day. He does a happy dance when he sees his leash come out! It is adorable. Darby is healing beautifully.He'll be cleared for strenuous exercise in about 4 weeks, but he'll never need it. After all, this is a typical English Labrador with a mellow and calm demenor, not a high energy pup. Darby will be happy with 2-3 short walks each and every day even after he is completely healed.
Darby is well trained, he sits, lays down and waits on command. He takes treats gently and shares well. He doesn't pull and can be walked so easily with a loose leash. He is such a pleasure to have in the home.
Darby's a very healthy dog with excellent blood work. He is healing well and ready to go to a new fur-ever home. He will need to continue his thyroid medication for the rest of his life, but is very inexpensive and easy to give - just drop a couple pills in with his food and it's that simple! Darby is neutered and up to date on vaccines too!
Meet Scout, a truly Beautiful purebred Labrador retriever. He is pale butter cream in color, smaller in stature and is an English Lab with a nice blocky head, short snout, and a short coupled conformation.
Scout came to us very underweight. He has been putting weight on and eating well. As he gains he will fill out and have that nice blocky stocky bench bred look.
Scout is still a puppy at two years of age. He has tons of energy and needs his daily exercise. He loves to swim. We would be thrilled to find him a home with A pool or where he will get to go swimming often. Another young playful canine companion would also be great.
Scouts new family should be prepared for lots of daily exercise, tennis ball throwing, puppy proofing, and leash training. Scout has outstanding temperament and the sweetest personality you'll ever meet, but no one bothered to train him in his former life and so his new family will need to step up to the plate. He is a fast learner, wants to please, and is very smart. Training this boy is going to be a breeze.
im for a walk. His new owner should be prepared with a pinch collar or other training collar to correct him when he pulls. This should be an easy fix as long as he is getting his exercise and his owner is consistent.
Scout is an AKC registered Labrador and is from a very good breeding program. His pedigree consists of many champion labs and so we know that he has the temperament we love in our dogs. We rarely see dogs of this caliber in rescue. Scout really is the cream of the crop.
Scout is wonderful with other dogs. He has excellent doggy manners. He likes to follow the other dogs around and should be easy to walk off leash at the beach and on trails once he is bonded to you.
Be prepared to be stopped everywhere you take this boy because he is that beautiful. Everyone wants to comment on how handsome he is!
Scout is excellent in the car and settles down pretty well. Although sometimes he likes to come up towards the front and buddy up with you while you're driving. This is a fun kid.
Scout is in love with the swimming pool and will dive headfirst fearlessly in for the ball. If you've been thinking about doing dock diving with your retriever, Scout may be a great dog to do it with. He would love it!
Scout is a good boy in the house and is basically housebroken. Even though we think in his past life he was not an indoor dog. He's just very smart and picks up on how things are supposed to be. The home should be puppy proofed naturally, and there should be lots of chew appropriate toys and other dog toys to play with.
No kitties for scout. He likes to chase them.
Scout will do fine with children over the age of seven. He would love kids who will throw the ball for him, play with him, or get in the pool with him.
He will do beautifully with another friendly young canine companion to play with. He could also do well as an only dog if you are a person who works from home and will take him to dogpark every day.
Scout is the typical Labrador retriever puppy. He smiles all the time and will charm you to pieces. He is a beautiful dog and has the potential to be an unbelievable family member.
Scout is neutered and up-to-date on his vaccines. He has been wormed as well.
Meet Lidia, a darling cream puff of Labby love. Lidia is about 3-4 years of age and is a nicely petite purebed Labrador female. We love her snowy coloring and think she looks absolutely adorable in her pink paisly bandana. PInk is for sure her color!
Lidia's foster mommy says that she has the cutest Labby smile ever and we agree. She was so dirty that our volunteer had to clean her up - especially her head - before she went to her foster home. Her foster mommy gave her an even better bath and that discovered she has a super soft, creamy coat. She was a very good girl for her bath too!
This girl is good on the leash but naturally she pulls a little bit. We don't know how much leash training she has had. She is easily corrected when she shows interest in squirrels and bunnies. Her new owner will have no trouble making her a perfect walking buddy.
Lidia has a very sad story. She and her buddy were dumped on the road. Her buddy was killed and Lidia stood by him until she was rescued. Lucky for Lidia, she is unscathed save for a dirty coat and head. But she was definitely afraid and confused. We don't know if her buddy was a dog she lived with or a dog she knew and we probably never will.
We are just so happy she is safe and with us. We are honored to bring this girl to her new life of love and security and she seems to be truly grateful.
Lidia is a wonderfully sweet girl with a lightly playful yet calm temperament. She is good with other dogs - even small ones - and seems ok with cats too. She does not seem to show any mental scars from what happened to her and instead seams ok. She is a typical wiggly loving Labrador who wants to great everyone and be close.
Lidia seems to be housebroken and is non-destrucitve in the home so far. She rides beautifully in the car too and would be a nice buddy to do errands with on not-too-hot days.
We think Lidia will do find with kids over aged 7 and we think she would do fine with another friendly canine companion. She is fostered with a little dog, a big male Labrador and a senior male Labrador. She has visited with several other Labs and loved them all. She was basically non-reactive to the cats she met although any dog can chase a kitty so kitty homes must be prepared just in case.
Lidia is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Brady Bear adopted!
Meet Brady Bear! This purebred Lab is 5 years old and is one gorgeous boy! He is a nice size at about 78 pounds and at a healthy weight.
This handsome fella came to us when his family was getting divorced and just dropped him off at the shelter! Poor guy! Well lucky we saw him and he instantly became part of the Indilab family!!
Brady Bear is a happy go lucky, goofy, happy Lab! He makes everyone smile!
Bear is a medium energy boy who would love a family to play with him, take him on long walks or hikes and perhaps even a trip to the dog park now and again. He loves doggie toys and also loves to carry his leash in his mouth and walk himself - silly boy.
Bear is a dog who loves his exercise and would enjoy dog park or a hike regularly. He is still a young fella so for sure does best after his cruises. He is not trustworthy off leash yet and will run away from you. He will be a great off leash dog once he bonds with you but until then, no off leash at all for Bear.
Whoever adopts him must bring a martingale collar with them in order to take him home so that he cannot slip out of his collar and get away. Until he is fully bonded with his person, we want to keep him safe.
This boy would do well as your one and only or with another doggie companion. He is good with all other dogs. He is untested with kitties so no cats for him in his home.
Bear is housebroken and knows his basic commands. He is also good in the car - hoping right in on his own, sitting down to enjoy the ride and just looks out the window to see the sights along the way.
Brady Bear likes his walks and can pull on leash. He corrects well and just needs someone to remind him to walk next to his person. He can be jumpy when excited so staying on all fours to greet humans is something he will need to be reminded.
If you are looking for a goofy, happy, always smiling Labrador, Brady Bear is the one for you! He will bring a smile to your face each and every day!
Brady Bear is neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccines.
Meet Bitty! A little snuggly bumpkin of darlingness! Bitty is just a Labrador baby girl and she is one adorable sweet scrumptious delight! She is 8 months and completely delicious.
This chocolate purebred doll came to us after being seen at an Inland shelter by one of our volunteers. We believe she was purchased from a breeder and upon finding out the comitment required to own a baby, her owners either let her go or turned her in. She was listed as a stray and that can sometimes mean families are too embarrased to admit they could not keep her. Or it could be that kids left a gate open and she got out. Either way, a dog this perfect ended up in the shelter and we couldn't let that alone. So our volunteer scooped her right up knowing that this was a special young girl and deserved to have Indilab find her a home that will cherish her and never allow her to be in that place ever again.
A little thing, Bitty is an 8 month old baby who is all puppy! She has that cute puppy look and the wiggly booty that wags her whole body. She is curious about everything and loves kitties, flowers, butterflies and anything new. Pretty much everything is interesting to this angel and everything she does is adorable.
She is currently fostered with several other labs and even a little dog and she does great. She likes the cats at her foster home too making her a great candidate for a kitty home or even a home with chickens.
Bitty is learning her basic commands and is eager to learn, Her new family will need to be dedicated to continue training her. She walks well on a leash and even does great off leash, coming when called and staying close at all times.
Puppies required their owner to be diligent on keeping them safe, making sure the counters are cleared of all dangerous items, medications, trash, remotes, glasses just about everything.
Bitty is housebroken but all puppies can get excited and have an accident, her new owners will need to be patient as she adjusts to her new forever home.
Bitty loves to play with other dogs and a home with another younger companion would great. She will do best in a home without young children who could poke and prod her and take attention away from her puppy training. She will do her best with someone around much of the time at least in the beggining.
Bitty is very calm for a puppy and will be a calmer medium energy adult. She is very pretty and nicely bred. We are utterly stunned that a puppy of this quality eneded up in rescue and who ever is lucky enough to adopt her will be getting quite a prize. Getting a puppy like this from a high quality breeder would take time on a wait list and would be expensive. So this is a real score for the right home.
We will be extremley picky with who is considered as this girl deserves just the right puppy approved home with all the attention, time, dedication, and love every little Labby baby deserves.
She has been spayed and had her vaccines but since she is so young, her new owner should boost those vaccines as recommended by their veterinarian. She is microchipped as well.
Bitty could be considered as a one and only dog if her new owners are home most of the time and committed to dog parks, hikes and play dates with other friendly canines. All Labby puppies need socialization.
Puppy homes must be clutter free. Tons and tons of chew toys required as well as all manner of other sturdy and durable pup delights. A crate is highly recommended for those times you are not at home. This keeps puppy safe and secure as well as protects your home.
Loden's Hawk adopted!
Hawk is a male Lab mix puppy who is 8 weeks old and ready to go home! Hawk is one of a litter of 7 lab mix puppies. The mother is a purebred yellow English Lab Loden, who has already been adopted.
Both mom and babies were raised in a loving foster home where they are handled by people daily, they play with their littermates and are learning their housebreaking as well.
We call Hawk the gentle giant of the litter. He has huge paws and the sweetest temperament. He is playful, but not a bully. Curious, but not overly confident. He likes to assess the situation before getting involved. He's generous with his kisses and happy watching the others play while lounging in your lap or at your feet. His tail never stops wagging. Hawk is comfortable playing with his litter mates or exploring on his own--in fact he was likely to settle in a quiet corner while the rest of his brothers and sisters were running around the yard like crazies. Hawk's got a light brown undercoat with a black overcoat and a dark chest. His eyes stand out for their unique color--tawny brown. Both he and his sister Bandit sport a dark ring on their tails, but he has a little white "soul patch" on his chin. His overall look is brown/gold.
Hawk is already wormed and vaccinated. Like all babies, he will need a vaccine booster for full immunity. Your vet will tell you more.
Each puppy is adopted with a spay/neuter deposit and signed adoption contract. Proof of sterilization is required and at such time proof of sterilization is provided, your neuter deposit will be returned to you.
Puppies are too young to be left alone or outside all day so someone should be home most of the time in the begging or other plans should be made. There is doggie daycare, sitters, and even vet day care once puppy has been fully imunized.
A crate is important too! A cat carrier to start is perfect until puppy is a little bigger because you will need a larger crate going forward. Little bladders fill quickly and crate training makes light work of housetraining! It's also the best way to keep your baby safe.
We do not adopt puppies to homes with babies or toddlers. If you have been approved to adopt and are ready for a life long commitment, let us know!
Puppies are fostered in Redondo Beach.
Meet Rosalyn, a darling 3 year old purebred chocolate angel. This female Labrador is as adorable as she is sweet.
Rosalyn is a medium sized beautiful Lab with a lightly playful temperament and a moderate energy level. Rosalyn is a the perfect mix of mellow indoor girl and playful fun. She is great for a couch cuddle or a hike with her owner - either way she is a best buddy!
Rosalyn loves to play fetch and will bring the ball back every time. But she is not a high energy dog who wants to play and play and play. A few retrieves and she is happy to simply hang out. What a good girl!
She loves her strolls and is easy to walk as she doesn't pull. She passes other dogs nicely and will be the envy of the neighborhood. Expecially if you put a cut bandana on her darling neck.
Rosalyn is a great in the car and house. She's not destructive and calm in the house. She is trustworthy in the home after her exercise which is so nice for a young dog.
Rosalyn will do best with or without another friendly dog. She is untested with cats so no kitties at this time. She would love someone who is around much of the time so that she can acclimate easily into the home but ultimately will be fine as an only dog.
This girl is in great health and shape. She looks fabulous with her dark shiny coat and beautiful face. She is the perfect weight and size and is nicely bred. Everyone who meets her comments on her beauty!
Rosalyn is an extremely affectionate dog. She will sit and gaze into your eyes telling you to give her love. She will lick your face or hand if you let her. She is all about the love! As she gets older she could be a good therapy dog but for now she is too young and wiggly and just wants to be a youngster which is fine with us!
Rosalyn is housebroken and crate trained. She is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
How do you spell affection? We spell it R-O-S-I-E!!! This 4 year old roasty toasty cocoa puff girl came to us via a shelter after her owner surrendered her. It is obvious that she has had puppies, but we believe at some point she was a well loved pet due to her great behavior and devoted tender heart!
Rosie is a gorgeous medium sized chocolate lab with a silken coat of burnished brown. Not only is this sweetheart "eye candy" but she also has the perfect temperament to match! Her blend of energetic playfulness and calm demeanor is a labby owner's dream!
Rosie loves to chase a tennis ball for a good workout but is not ball obsessed. She also adores squeaky toys but the stuffing inside can be irresistible, so tough chewable toys will be a more durable option.
Rosie is great on walks. She pulls a bit on the leash, but with her sweet sensitivity and willing responsiveness she is very easily corrected. She shows a keen interest in the squirrels and bunnies roaming the neighborhood so until she knows her family's walking rules, you will want to keep a firm hold on her leash.
Rosie knows the command "sit" and does it often next to you without being told. She is intelligent and food motivated so any other tricks or commands will be easy to teach with a healthy treat. She doesn't appear to counter surf or get into the trashcan but with labradors that is never a guarantee. ALWAYS keep any food and medications well out of reach.
The biggest treasure that Rosie offers is her loving heart! She is absolutely one of the most affectionate dogs ever! She sits on the floor with her head in her foster mom's lap during morning coffee and when the doggie blanket is placed on the couch in the evening she happily jumps up for caresses in front of the TV. Rosie will melt your heart!
This chocolate gem gets along fine with her older foster brothers, is house trained and sleeps beautifully through the night. She is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on her vaccines.
What lucky family will pull this luscious labby lottery ticket??
Say hello to Sirus, a super sweet, cheerful, loving 7-year-young Chocolate Labrador Retriever boy who has the body and spirit of a 4 old!! He is in amazing shape, healthy, playful and fun.
Sirus is a good looking purebred and is not very large. He is a nice more medium size for a male Labrador. His coat is a tad light as it's spring and chocolates tend to show their coats lighter before a newer summer dark coat comes in. He has an adorable grey muzzle which lets us know he's not four, but without it, you would never know. He is a very fit and beautiful boy.
Sirus has an adorable smiling face and he constantly looks at you with love in his eyes. He loves to recieve and give affection and be close to his people. He is a true companion dog. Sadly Sirus's owner passed away and Sirus was left behind. No one in the family was near the area or able to take Sirus so he ended up in a shelter where a wonderful vounteer familiar with Indi Lab Rescue work. Sirus was depressed and lonely at the shelter missing his owner and it was very sad. Our friend at the shelter contacted us and needless to say, we got there immediately to rescue this sweet, sweet boy.
Sirus is a formerly owned and beloved dog and it shows. He is housebroken and great in the home. He is wonderful with all other dogs and and fits right in. He is in fantastic shape and loves to go on walks with the other foster dogs through the canyons of Malibu, doing well on and off leash.
Sirus is an athletic, yet easy going Labrador. He will make a fabulous hiking companion who can still lay at your feet calmly and be your best bud. He needs his good daily exercise and he likes retrieving the tennis ball too. If you have lots of tennis balls, Sirus is happy to help you put them to use. He really does love his hikes with the other dogs. He can easily hike a few miles each day as he is in such good shape. He is good off leash staying with the pack and checking back. He loves swimming and fetch in the water, and he loves his car rides.
Sirus is a great walking buddy as he is so friendly with other dogs. It will be easy to travel through your neighborhood with this friendly fella. He does tend to pull in the beginning as he loves to walk fast to start, so a training collar in in order. He responds well, listens, and wants to make you happy. He is getting great on the leash, knows his basic commands and has learned not to jump up when he is happy. We think he previous owner allowed him to do that but he has learned not to with us.
Sirus immediately got along well with the other Labradors in his foster home. He also gets on famously with both cats and chickens making him wonderful for a home with critters! He does not bark, whine or countersurf, although all Lab owners should keep foods, meds, gum and any other potentially harmful items well out of reach. Macadamia nuts, chocolate, chewing gum, toothpaste, grapes and raisins, onions, apple seeds, avocado, alcohol, garlic, caffeine, milk and dairy, persimmons, peaches and plums are dangerous for dogs.
Sirus is strong and fit but has a premature "got milk" smile. A family who hikes or runs would be perfect. He is completely housebroken, although an accident could happen getting used to his new forever home.
Sirus will do best in a home with other friendly dogs, lots of attention and daily exercise. He would be great for a fit younger retired couple or person or an active family who loves to do things with their dog. He is not accustomed to long days alone having lived with his owner who was retired. So we would love someone who is around more often than not and who will provide him lots of walks, hikes, ball throwing and serious affection. He just loves being close.
Sirus suffered from an intestinal upset while in the shelter due to stress and depression. He is recovering from that. He also presented with a bit of an eye infection. We have treated him for that too. Nothing serious and he is a healthy dog.
Sirus is microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and neutered. All that's needed now is you!
Meet Loden, a beautiful purebred Labrador Retriever female. Loden is 3 years old, a beautiful cream color, and a nice more bench bred conformation. She is a gorgeous dog and after being a mommy to 7 beautiful puppies, she deserves only the best fur-ever home.
We were first alerted to Loden when she arrived at a Los Angeles County shelter very, very pregnant. A dirty concrete shelter kennel is no place for a mama to whelp a litter of puppies. It's cold, unclean, and stressful at best. We immediately begged to take Loden with us to let her have her littler in a safe, clean, quiet foster home. We were denied.
After constant phone calls, begging, and a letter to supervisors, the point became moot as Loden had her litter in the shelter after all.
The shelter finally let us have Loden and her puppies when they saw the puppies were not purebred Labs. Pretty sad. But to us, we were just happy to remove this little sweet family and get them to safety.
Loden has been a wonderful mama tending to her pups at every turn and keeping them well fed and healthy. She has done a wonderful job and is getting tired of puppies and being bothered 24/7. Puppies are now eating on their own, activing, playful and no longer need mommy to tend to them. We would like Loden to finally catch a break and be the loved and spoiled darling of the household!
Loden is still a young dog herself. At only 3 years and from likely not a great original home, Loden was never trained. In foster she has been learning her commands, being social with all other dogs big and small, and potty rules, leash walking, and more. She is very treat motivated and an excellent learning! She has even been crate trained!!!
Loden will need a family ready to adore her and take on the rest of her youngster training. She is a dog who will need her daily exercise as well as playtime. She will do best with another friendly and lightly playful dog. Loden is not super playful just now as she is still surrounded by puppies, but as she spends more time away from them, she is showing more of her own youthfullness and happpy ways.
Because Loden has recently whelped, her teets are large and still hold milk. Bitches do not complete dry up until puppies have been removed or have stopped nursing for about 4 weeks. Loden will not leak milk, but her teets will be large and will shrink up over the next few weeks eventually dissapearing alltogether.
Her new owners will be responsible for getting her to spay once she is dried up and ready to go. She has already been vaccinated and microchipped.
Loden is not a candidate for cats. She really does not like kitties at all. She is not a candidate for a home where she will be left in a yard for any length of time and she shoud be with another friendly canine.
We actually love Loden as a companion for Cletus (see his listing below). Or of course she would do great in a home with another dog who is waiting for a buddy.
Loden deserves the best. She deserves a home that will take her on good daily walks and weekend hikes or dog beach. She would love a pool or other fun water access in her future. And of course she will absolutely need continued training as all young Labradors do.
We do not recomment homes with children under 10 for Loden.
Meet Cletus, or should I say let me introduce the biggest, most lovable, silliest, cuddliest, goof-ball there ever was. Prepare to have your heart stolen!
Cletus is the most amazing hunk of a marshmallow cream colored Labrador you could ever lay your eyes on. This boy came to us from a high kill shelter where he was surrendered because his prior family was moving and couldn't take him with them. Shame on them, but horray for us!
Cletus is a 6-7 year old Bench Bred Labrador. He is a beautifully bred dog near show quality fella. He is a compact, short-coupled, otter-tailed cupcake with a big beautiful blocky head. He sports that typical expressive Lab face that steel thousands of hearts every year. In short, Cletus is exceptional.
Cletus is great with all living things, Dogs, big and small, cats, birds and every person is his person, he loves to please. His tennis ball is his buddy and he loves playing fetch, he needs a little work on the “drop command” as he thinks it’s just fun to hold on to the ball for as long as he can. He is good off leash and is a good on leash, which is a perfect combination when he can run free but he will always come back and when he needs to be on a leash he is perfectly good with it.
Cletus has some stiffness in his back end when he came into his foster home, but now that he is getting regular exercise he is doing much better. He is also on a good grain free diet and is getting his glucosamine and some NSAIDS to help with the stiffness. He has made great progress with this and we expect him to get ever better.
Cletus loves the pool at his foster home and would love a good swim now and then. A home with a pool would be very idea to help sooth his stiff joints and provide excellent non-weight bearing exercise. Plus he looks adorable swimming around like a baby polar bear cub.
Cletus has the idea happy Labrador attitude. Wiggles, smiles and love abound! He's a lot of fun to be with but he's also very well behaved, settling beautifully in the house. He is nondestructive and a wonderful house guest. Cletus loves a good antler or bully stick in addition to his tennis balls. An antler keeps him busy and happy.
True to the purebred Labrador breed, Cletus loves to follow his foster mom around the house and "helping" her do things like sweeping when he wags that big ole otter tail on the floors. He is just one big happy fella.
Cletus would be happiest with another canine companion to wrestle, play tug, and pal around with. He is loving the dogs he's with now. He would be considered as a one and only dog if someone is home most of the time with him, providing a good long walk, trip to dog park or visits to dog beach. Bonus points for a pool!
Cletus is completely housebroken, up to date on shots, neutered and microchipped.
Mia 2 adopted!
Say hello to Mia, a sweet and cheerful 2 year old female Black Labrador Retriever! She is healthy and perfect breed standard size at about 75 compact pounds. She is a gorgeous girl.
Mia is very loving. She wants to be close to her people and get love and kisses. She is very focused on her persons - lying at your feet, or in the car next to you, and following you around like most Labs do.
Mia can be a bit skittish and tentative when she meets new people but warms up quickly. For this reason, she would do best in a home with a dog experienced owner.
Mia gets along fabulously with other dogs. She's a more submissive girl with her foster siblings - not too interested in playing with her doggie friends yet, but would love to have doggie companions in her new home. She is also wonderful with both cats and chickens. Mia would do best in a home with another well adjusted dog or two so we will only be consider those homes.
Mia is well behaved in the house. She does not bark, whine or counter-surf, and seems to be non-destructive. Naturally, all Lab owners should keep foods, meds, gum and other potentially harmful items off of counters. Mia is completely housebroken but like all adopted pups, she could make an initial mistake in her new home.
Mia is medium energy and loves her daily exercise with the other dogs in her home. She especially likes their hikes where she can see new things and put her feet in the creek if she wants! Mia is a youngster, so she would do best in a home where she will get daily exercise - a jog, hike, time at dog park or a couple nice long walks every day. Exercise and fun are important for young Labradors.
Mia should not be left alone for super long hours since she is young. But If you work during the day, Mia would love to join a dog walker on doggie hikes or pack walks while you're away.
Mia can pull on leash so is best walked with a training collar as she learns. She is learning not to pull, but she will need a firm hand to continue her training to walk in step with her person. So far she does very well off leash!
Mia rides well in the car so could join you on short or long car trips.
She is just learning to play ball and go swimming - both of which she will come to enjoy as she settles into her new life. We suspect she will be more playful and like toys much more as well.
Mia in young and does not know her commands, so we are just starting to teach her the basics. Her new family will want to continue teaching them. Mia has a mild tendency to jump up on you when she's very happy. This is very easily corrected with a knee up or a "down".
Mia would do best in an adult only home as her initial shyness around people would likely lead her to be overwhelmed in a home with kids and where kids friends are coming to visit.
Mia is spayed and up to date on vaccines.
Meet Saylor, a jet black, beautiful purebred Labrador Retriever. Saylor is about 4-5 years old and she has beautiful burnt sugar eyes, and a sweet Labby expression. She is a very pretty dog - especially in her pink collar.
Saylor is a super sweet, cheerful, loving girl with a very calm, quiet, easy-going spirit, she loves to be close to her person and get love and kisses. She will lie at your feet, on the couch or in the car next to you, and follow you around like most Labs do.
Saylor came to us from a high kill shelter where she came in as a stray. She was so happy to be saved and jumped right into the SUV for a ride to her safe foster home. It must have been very frighting for this angel in this girl in the high kill shelter with so many dogs barking non-stop.
Poor Saylor was either neglected or out in the hills for a while as her coat is a bit dull and she had a number of ticks on her when she was found. Now she is tick free! With a high quality grain free food, Salmon Oil or omega 3's, a few soothing oatmeal baths and a gooo regular brushing, her coat will be shiny and luxurious very soon.
No matter her past, she is so loving and open to new people, hugs, pets, and a real forever home. After all, she is a Labrador Retriever!
Saylor gets along well with all other dogs both big and small. She is not playful with the other dogs at this time, she is a bit quiet and submissive, yet cheerful. She also gets along famously with both cats and chickens! This girl will do great in a home with other critters.
She does not bark, whine or countersurf, although all Lab owners should keep foods, meds, gum and any other potentially harmful items off counters and well out of reach.
Saylor enjoys her exercise and would love a couple of nicewalks or even hike with her new forever family. She has done well on hikes with her foster family and is good off leash, on the trail - staying not far from her person and her fellow foster dog siblings. One she knows her family wll, she will be completely trustworthy off leash. On leash, she is a dream to walk as she never pulls.
If you are looking for someone to accompany you on little trips or errands, Saylor loves car rides and settles down nicely in the car.
Saylor is healthy and a nice smaller size for a female lab. She weighs about 60 pounds!!! She is sweet and petite!
Saylor is completely housebroken, although an accident could happen getting used to her new forever home.
Saylor is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines.
Meet Landon, a lovely chunk of English Labrador honey cream pie. Landons smile and gentle sweet personality are so delectibly charming. He is irresitable and his super power is that he makes people hug him. He looks at you and then you hug him. He's quite good at it.
Landon is a typical 5 year old bench bred fella. He's on the calm and easy side, is very nicely bred with good conformation, and he gets along with everyone. If you are considering having a therapy dog, Landon is a fit.
Landon is submissive and gentle with dogs big and small. He loves other dogs. He also is going great with his foster kitty siblings. He may chase a cat a little from time to time but he won't hurt a cat. Sometimes dog friendly cats chase because they just want to say hi and smell the cat. But cats can be a little standoffish over that.
Landon comes to us from a high kill shelter. No one came for him. We think his owners dumped him there but said he was a stray to avoid paying the fee.
Landon doesn't yet know his name. But whatever you say, he wiggles and comes. He's a wagger and a happy boy.
He is enjoying exploring the property where he is staying. Lots to smell and trees and room to run and play with the other dogs. So far he has been on the quieter side, but his personality is coming through and he is going to be one awesome dog.
Landon is slightly underweight and needs a healthy good grain free diet to gain a good 10 lbs. Maybe an egg every couple of days and some coconut oil too. He is not food aggressive or treat aggressive.
Landon seems good off leash so far. On leash he pulls a tad so his new owner will need a pinch collar used correctly to train him him. Easy fix. We also want any potential adopters to show up with a martingale collar for him. In fact, we are now asking this for every dog. Dogs can back out of collars. Only martingales are safe. If you don't know about them, look them up on line or visit your pet store.
Landon seems housebroken and is not destructive. He's a good boy inside. And a pleasure to have as a houseguest. He sleeps through the night on his bed and does not require a crate for training.
This stunningly handsome and cuddly honey bear is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Dolce Von Blonde adopted!
Meet Dolce Von Blonde, the absolutely sweetest Labrador Retriever! This gorgeous bench bred Lab has a nice English conformation with her beautiful head, tail, paws and sweet expression. Dolce is 9 years young and a purebred female lab with a beautiful soft white coat!
Dolce came to us through a good samaritan who rescued her when her owners decided they did not want her anymore. What a sad story for such a loving angel. We will never understand it. She arrived with a urinary tract infection and infected ears. No one had taken care of her so we did all we could for Dolce and brought her to her new improved and healthy self!
We couldn't be happier or more blessed to bring this perfect girl into the Indi Lab family and help her find the best forever home where she will be treasured and valued!
Dolce is perfect in the house, she is non-destructive when left, loves her dog beds, sleeps soundly through the night and is housebroken as well! Dolce is now an indoor dog and we won't have it any other way in her forever home.
This sweet girl deserves so much more than being left in a backyard during the day, so we will only adopt her to a home where she will be indoors during the day and night, of course with outdoor access for potty breaks and walks.
Dolce is a low energy girl enjoying a couple walks each day, but also very content to lounge around with her people. She walks beautifully on the leash like the gentle soul she is.
Dolce is your typical happy, wiggly, tail wagging Labrador! Especially when her foster mom comes home from work - she does the Lab happy dance with excitement!
Dolce does not show much interest in toys or bones at this time. She just likes to be near, wiggle and smile and enjoy her foster Labby siblings and family. She is a pleasure.
Dolce is so ladylike. She is a dainty slow eater unlike most Labradors who gobble down their food. She is submissive and gentle and has no problem eating near the other dogs.
Dolce would do great as your one and only or as a companion to your friendly dog. She is currently fostered with two male Labradors and they all get along fabulously! Dolce would make a great companion to any dog big or small!
Dolce is untested with cats, so we won't consider homes with cats for her at this time.
Dolce has a slight arthritis and a fused elbow from an old injury. She is currently on an inexpensive NSAID and glucosamine. She should remain on these as well as take regular walks to keep her flexible and feeling fine. Whoever adopts her should be good to her and take care of her well. She sure deserves it.
Dolce is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. She has had her urinalysis, bloodwork, ear treatment, and a complete veterinary exam.
This sweet senior girl is extremely special. She is as angelic and beautiful as she is gentle. Her pure spirit and kind nature despite her former neglect reveal quite clearly how wonderful she is. Whoever brings her into their life will be blessed over and over with so much love.
Meet Prima, A gorgeous 3-4 year old purebred Labrador Retriever of chocolatey sweetness! When you look at this cutie, she looks all puppy with her darling expression - especially when she is holding her tennis ball.
Prima came to us from a high kill shelter where she she was dumped after whelping a litter of pups. It is most likely that her owners cast her out and kept and sold her puppies. Very sad!
A recent mommy, Prima will carry toys around like puppies or takes them to her bed for cuddles. She must have been a good mommy to her puppies. It is so adorable and sad at the same time. We hope her puppies are all in good homes. We know the Prima will be in a wonderful home she deserves.
Prima is a delight and we just adore her cute puppy face and fun loving personality. She is an intelligent girl who loves to retrieve her tennis ball. She'll chase it, catch it in the air and bring it back to you for more. If you have a chuckit, you can easily exercise this girl and have fun!. After a few throws she will retreat to a spot near you and lay down or be by your side.
Prima loves to chew her antler peacefully along with the other dogs. Nylabones or Kongs are great too! She will lay on her bed and stay quiet.
This girl walks beautifully on a leash. She doesn't pull and passes by other dogs with ease. She loves her walks and is a wonderful walking companion stopping for greetings a pets and loving to be with her person. She is easy to walk and makes it fun.
Prima is a young Lab and needs her daily walk or ball throwing like all young Labbies. She is wonderful i the house and relaxes nicely after her fetch or walk.
Prima sleeps really well through the night on her dog bed. While not food obsessed, she enjoys her healthy grain free kibbles, check-up bones and doggy jerky from Costco. She is very fit and looks perfect at her current weight. She is a very pretty girl!
Most Labs will occassionally counter surf, so it is important that no medications, food or chewable items be left with in her reach. We cannot stress how important this is. Counters cleared = safe dogs.
Prima knows her basic commands and will be easy to teach any others you desire. She is clever and happy to be rewarded with a doggie treat or ball to retrieve. She wants to please her humans and will be a great companion.
Prima is good with other dogs and seems happiest with her person. She would love being an only dog but will do well with another dog also. Either way she is a lot of fun and really cute. She is fostered with two older senior foster brothers and settles in nicely with them when it is time to mellow out.
Prima is housebroken but should be taken out often to learn her new routine. But remember, rescued dogs can have a potty mistake at first.
Prima is a lovely, high quality Labrador lovely girl and ready for her wonderful new home.
She has been spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped
Say hello to Budd, a sweet, cheerful, loving 5 year old Yellow male Labrador!!! Budd has a calm, easy going spirit, he loves to be close to his person and get love and kisses.
He came to us from his owner who fell on hard times and could no longer keep him. So naturally after 5 years with one family, he is a bit anxious in looking for a forever family to love him. He is very focused on his persons - lying at your feet, on the couch or bed next to you, and following you around like most Labs do. Labradors love to be near their person and this boy is no different.
Budd would do well as your only Lab, or with another friendly, easy going dog companion. He also gets along famously with both cats and chickens, so is a good choice for a family with cats!
Budd He does not bark or countersurf, although all Lab owners should keep foods, meds, gum and any other potentially harmful items well out of reach and not on counter tops!
Budd is a medium energy boy. He loves his hikes, easily hiking a couple miles per day at his foster home. He is a dream off leash, staying within 10 feet of his person and is completely trustworthy off leash. On leash, he never pulls. He is really just a dream to walk! He will need exercise every day, but is an easy going boy. He is not high energy at all and he settles well after his exercise.
Budd is a great car rider. In fact, he loves car rides so much, he doesn’t really want them to end, and has to be coaxed out of the car, silly boy!
Budd is healthy and weighs about 75 pounds, but has a new goal of losing a few pounds! He is completely housebroken, although an accident could happen getting used to his new forever home and new routine.
He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and micropchipped. All he needs now is a loving forever home!
Meet Kenzie! This petite, sweet girl is almost 9 years old and such a gentle soul. Kenzie is a female yellow Labrador Retriever - almost golden in color and is a lovely mellow girl. She is a smaller size at about 55 pounds.
Kenzie came to us from a very sad past. She eneded up at a high kill shelter after being removed from a breeder turned hoarder situation along with many other dogs. Kenzie was very underweight and neglected but her spirit never wavered from being a loving gentle and sweet Labrador
Kenzie needed to gain weight and addiitonal nutrition as she had recently had a litter. We let her rest prior to spay and dental but she was under a long time and we had to stop short of removing a small mass. Once recovered, we were able to do a second surgery to remove the mass and joyfully it was a benign little growth. We finished her care with a senior blood panel and urinalysis and Kenzie is now given a truly healty-dog bill of health!
Our vet tells us that all Kenzie needs is a wonderful home to call her own!
Kenzie is a low energy mellow dog. She likes to lounge around with you wherever you go and especially loves her soft comfy bed to lay on. She loves to get a quick romp around the yard or a nice leashwalk and will wiggle with delight and smile when "it's time!"
This is a chill girl who is all about zen love. She needs very little to be happy. Minimal exercise, lots of cuddles and a grandchild now and again! That, and an ower who lavishes her with love will provide everything this angelic Lab needs.
Kenzie is fabulous with young children. She is so gentle with them. She has spent time in foster with her foster mom's 3 year old grand daugher and is so gentle with her! She would do very well in a home with young kids or grandkids who want a dog to cuddle with.
Kenzi is fostered with other dogs and a cat and she is perfect with all. She is a wonderfully mellow Doggie companion and would be a nice choice for a family with cats and/or toddlers. She would do well as your one and only or as a companion to other dogs.
Kenzie is a loving, gentle soul who has had a very sad life since she was born. She was with a bad puppy mill breeder turned hoarder and she got little to no attention or care. She was a puppy making machine. Animal Control finally raided her owner and Kenzie was one of the dogs they took. Many people flocked to adopt the young cute puppies and dogs leaving Kenzie with her sad face and deserving heart behind. Well we could not do that. Meeting her through the bars of her cage, we know through her eyes that her soul was pure and she was ours. We feel so blessed to have Kenzie with us.
Kenzie will lay her head in your lap and give you the most heartbreaking look right into your eyes. She loves affection and she so deserves it in return.
Kenzie is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and ready for her new magical dream home of love. Will it be yours?
Meet Smith, a jet black beautiful purebred Labrador puppy. This fella is 1 1/2 - 2 years old and not fully grown. He's a nice sized boy who should be over 80 pounds when filled out. He is more tall than thick at the moment due to his teenage growth spurt and once filled out will be one gorgeous handsome stud!
Smith is sweet as sugar. He was dumped at a high kill shelter with his brother Wesson below. Smith is a young boy and he loves to play and have fun. He will go best with another friendly canine but he also is a great candidate for dog park and dog beach as he is wonderful with other dogs!
Bring your tennis balls for this boy! Smith LOVES to retrieve and he will go get the ball and bring it back as long as you will throw it! Save your arm and buy a Chuck-it because this love bug is going to want that ball!
Smith and his littermate Wesson are identical twins. In person it is almost impossible to tell the apart other than that Wesson has a couple of mismarks. (learn about mismarks here: http://www.woodhavenlabs.com/mismarks.html and google images of Labrador mismarks just for fun. Super interesting!) They both love playing and they love other dogs. Both are great with cats too!
Smith will bark when he is excited. He likes to bark to tell you he wants the ball. Or in the car if he gets very happy he will bark with joy. He's a loving boy who wants to be by your side in the house.
Smith is housebroken and non-destructive so long as this puppy has had his exercise and has appropriate chew and other toys.
No food or meds on counter. He can counter surf and he's tall so he can reach anything up there. Also trash must be in a cabinet or a doggie proof can. No plastic cans with plastic swing lids. Those do not keep dogs out. Smith has not shown himself to get into trash or counter surf but he for sure can and will try it. He is young and likes to check things out.
Smith will do great with another friendly companion. He is great with his brother but both are separated now in foster homes after first being fostered together and we have learned that they do great apart also. Both are doing beautifully with the other foster dogs in their respective foster homes.
Smith is learning his leash manners. He is wonderful on leash and beautiful off leash staying right with you. He wants to please and will be very easy to train. He loves people!
Smith is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
We cannot believe his owner got rid of Smith and his brother. They are the most beautiful, nice dogs. But we intend to find them each a wonderful home.
Meet Wesson, a darling 1 1/2 - 2 year old Labrador puppy. "Puppy" meaning Labs are not full grown or filled out or adults for 2 full years. He's a nice sized younster with a gorgeous face and a wonderful Labrador personality. Wesson is already about 75 lbs. He will fill out beautifully but right now is on the thin teenager side. He's downright beautiful.
Wesson came to us with his littermale Smith who is also a darling purebred black fella. Same size, same look, and same darling disposition.
Wesson is a beautiful black male. He has what are known as "mismarks" meaning he has some white AND some chocolate on him. If you want to learn about mismarks on purebreds check out this link. They are unbelievable interesting! You will be surprised at what can happen in a purebred Labrador! It's truly amazing. http://www.woodhavenlabs.com/mismarks.html
Wesson is wonderful with his littermate brother and both can be adopted together. That said, both boys are young enough to do beautifully split apart in homes with other dogs. He will do best with another friendly canine companion who likes to play or a home where he can get lots of good hikes. but also he is a great candidate for dog park and dog beach because he loves to play and is amazing with all other dogs big and small.
He's still a pup and so lots of nice chew toys and excercise required. But he settles beautifully in the house after exercise. He is not destructive but as a puppy, you never know. They can surprise you! Thus chew toys and putting away things like remotes, sunglasses, and other curious chewable items away is important!
Wesson seems to be completely housebroken. However his foster has an open door so his new home may need to teach a doggie door or remind him about potty manners.
Wesson wants to please. He is a submissive dog who looks to his people. He will train up beautifully. Wesson is sensitive and wants you to be happy. He is also very, very smart, so he takes correction very well.
Wesson is easy on leash staying by your side. He is also good off leash once he bonds with you. He is learning to not pull on the leash since he is young. So his new owner will want to have both a pinch training collar to make training fast and easy as well as a martingale collar to prevent this young boy from ever slipping out of his collar. Indi Lab Rescue only uses martingale collars and we ask our adopters to bring a martingale with them. It is the safest way to keep your dog with you while they become yours!
Wesson is oblivious to cats. He is a good choice for families with kitties. Wesson is also wonderful with chickens!
No food or gum or medications on counters! This guy is a counter surfer and can get all the way to the back of the counter. Similarly with trash, all trash should be in a cabinet or in a dog proof trash can. Dog proof, not just a plastic can with a cover. Those trash cans are a joke when it comes to Labradors. Any Lab will find a way in if they want to.
Wesson is really a wonderful pick for a family dog. He will treasure you forever and will be such a good dog with training and exercise. You can't go wrong with Wesson!
Wesson is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Cedar, a chunk of burnin' chocolate love! Cedar is a handsome, strong, stocky English Labrador Retreiver of about 5 years. He's a super solid boy of about 80 lbs. He is simultaneously adorable and stunning. That's right, he is a combination of showdog/goodball and we're not sure which is more delicious - his looks or his googy soggy labradorable personality.
Cedar is beautifully bred. He has that wonderful English conformation of a shorter, stocky, blocky prince. He has burnt sugar eyes, a thick otter tail and a block head the size of Manhattan. And he is so sweet and gentle and loves to come in for kisses.
Cedar loves to dig into the cool earth and make himself a bed - but just in one spot. He is not a digger. He enjoys stopping to lay in the water on his malibu hikes. Chocolate Labs can really get hot. Some say hotter than black Labs. In Socal depending on where you are, these dark dogs should be hiked, ran, or walked early in the morning or after the sun is down. He loves the water and is pretty cute laying in it as you can see in his photo. He loves his hike and can easily do 5 miles at a moderate pace. He goes with all the other labs he is fostered with and really enjoys it.
He is not a hyper Lab by any stretch! But he is a strong young male and needs and loves to get out there and do stuff. His foster dad calls him a "power wagon" and we love it! This gentle chunk of muscle and love all wrapped up together. Solid and adorable! Strong and a marshmallow! Cedar is everything we love, love, love about purebred English Labradors!
Cedar is wonderful with other dogs. He's submissive enough and he enjoys their company. We think he might also do fine as an only dog depending on the situation.
Cedar is well behaved. He is non-destructive, not a chewer, digger, nor counter surfer. Although please remember this can change which is why no Lab owner should EVER leave flavored medications, any medications, any gum (dog killer), or food in general on their counters. People don't realize that a handful of macadamia nuts or one peice of gum with sorbitol, or a bunch of raisins, or grapes, or even walnuts can kill a dog. Dogs can smell flavored medications and they will try to get them. After all these meds are designed to highly appeal to dogs. They will work at Rx bottles until the get them out and then they will eat them all.
Cedar is a strong boy who currently does pull. He is learning to walk on a pinch collar which is highly effective in teaching these big fellas how to walk in tandem with their masters. We don't like gentle leaders and typically the dogs don't either. They are annoying to a dog and in time dogs will tollerate them, but they always are missing the fun of the walk as hindered by the gentle leader. The pinch collar affords comfort, clear communication, and it works. Simple as that. His new adotive family will need to show up with a pinch (prong) training collar sized large with extra links.
Cedar also needs to be on a martingale collar so he will not slip out of a flat collar. Most dogs should be on martigales actually but this guy particularly. Thus far Cedar is not an-off leash dog and he will go his own way not always coming when called. As he is in foster hoewever we are seeing this changing day by day His new owner will want to keep him on leash all the time until he is well settled.
Cedar is a no for cats. If you look at his photo where he has a big nose scar, that scar is the work of a very serious kitty cat. He has been fine with some cats and then has gone after others. He may have grown up with a cat and did ok but won't do ok with other cats. Either way, no cats are safe around this fudgecicle.
No little kids for Cedar even though he loves his humans and is gentle and clam. He's too strong and solid and his tail can clear a coffee table. This is a male English Labrador. A "power wagon" of gentleness who can easily knock a toddler down without meaning to. No kids under age 12 for this guy.
Cedar is a dog someone paid a nice chuck of cash for. He is really something. How he ended up in the shelter we won't know. But he's in nice condition and we can't help feeling sorry for his former owners a little bit, even though they did not teach him to walk on a leash.
Cedar is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and chipped.
Daisy 4 adopted!
Meet Daisy, a darling female purebred Labrador Retriever of 5 years. This beautiful girl is nothing but pure sweetness and love.
Daisy is a shiny, black beauty with a sweet expression and nice conformation. She has a perfect and adorable Labrador temperament. In short, Daisy is a prize.
Daisy came to us with her brother Duke through no fault of their own after her owners could no longer care for them. They were well loved and cared for dogs, but their owners circumstances had changed and the dogs were alone most of the time which they knew was not fair.
Daisy is an very gentle, mile energy Labrador. She likes to play lightly and will wiggle with delight. She is wonderful with everyone - all dogs, humans, and even cats. We think she would do fine with chickens too.
So far she hasn’t shown much interest in toys, but we think she may when she settles into her new home. Her former owners had many nice toys for the dogs.
Daisy is a bit cautious of stairs as she did not live with them before. She goes up slowly and comes down carefully. She will get used to stairs, but would like a single story home if possible.
Daisy is housebroken and sleeps on her bed all night. She is a velcro dog who loves to be where you are and at your feet. Her gentle, calm demeanor and friendliness make her a candidate for therapy work. But really she just loves being with her people being pet, cuddled, snuggled and kissed.
She is gentle with her food and is not food possessive, eating right along side the other dogs perfectly. She is non-destructive and doesn't bark. She walks nicely on leash and does not pull.
Daisy deserves a home where she will not be left alone all day as she was before. She will do best with another friendly canine.
Daisy and her Brother Duke do fine apart with another dog, but they are also great together. We are considering homes for each separately but if you are considering a pair of mellow easy going dogs, this may be the pair for you. Duke is a gorgeous 5 year old chocolate and will be available in a day or two.
Daisy is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
So Lucky adopted!
Meet So Lucky, a creamsicle dream of a purebred Labrador! This gentle boy is 3 years old and a good sized fella.
So Lucky has a beautiful, happy, and extremely friendly spirit. He smiles non-stop and is unbelievabely gentle and kind. Lucky would make a wonderful therapy dog due to an unbelievably lovely temperament and his desire to be close and near his humans.
So Lucky loves everyone and is a boy that want to please you always. He is such a good boy!
Do you have cats? Or Chickens? Well if you do, So Lucky loves them too. He doesn't chase them and is completely uninterested other than his usual smile.
So Lucky is excellent on leash and doesn't pull. He is also excellent off leash on a hike with his foster siblings. He is a medium energy boy who is a bit out of shape and chunky just now. His owner overfed So Lucky with a cheap, hi-carb food and did not excercise So Lucky at all. He was loved by his owner but he was not kept in shape. It will not be difficult for his new owner to continue the path we've already begun with excercise and good food.
So Lucky should be on high quality grain free food. Labs do not do well with grain and hi carbs which contribute to weight gain, ear infections and all other manner of things Labs are prone to. So Lucky has great ears and a nice coat but we stil want him on grain free so that his weight loss and health can be optimized.
So Lucky will need lots of excercise but it needs to be a reasonable slow increase of exercise so that he can get in shape without overdoing in and pulling a muscle or having any other injury.
So Lucky is not a counter surfer, but any food left at his level - coffee table for instance - will absolutely dissapear. He loves food like any Labrador so be sure anything delicious is not left where he can get it. Silly fella!
So Lucky was an only dog with his former family. But we think he will be wonderfully happy with a canine companion as he is truly loving being with his foster siblings.
So Lucky was loved in his home and it shows. He bear no ill will toward any living being and could not be more gentle and loving. He was given to us because his owner lost his home and was forced into houseing which did not accept pets. We promised we would find only the best home for Lucky and we shall!
So Lucky is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Rowdy - a sweet and loving 8-9 year old yellow female purebred Labrador Retriever. Rowdy is anything but. She's a mellow, easy going wiggler with a smile to die for.
Rowdy is a gorgeous creamy colored girl and is truly as lovely as they come. Her temperament is so nice and easy and she is a beautiful Lab. Just look at her adorable face!
Rowdy came to us from a small breeder who was retiring her and wanted her to get a fully approved home. That's where we came in. We were able to bring her into the Indilab family and start her in a loving foster home so we could get to know her as well as possible in order to select a home that meets her needs and cuddle requirements. Needless to say, we are looking for only the very best approved home to treasure this nugget of sweetness.
Rowdy is a lower to medium energy typical English Labrador. She loves her walks and is excellent on leash, rarely pulling. She will pass other dogs and humans with a smile and a wag and her cuteness factor makes everyone who sees her stop to say hello.
Rowdy is fabulous with all other dogs. She would do great as a doggie companion to any dog. She would also do well as your one and only - provided you are home a lot as she really does love the affection and company of her people. We do not want this sweet girl left alone all day by herself. She deserves more love and attention than that.
Rowdy loves her toys, especially tennis balls and enjoys playing with them in her foster home. Her new home must commit to providing lost of nice toys and balls for her to carry around. Oh is she cute carrying her toys!
Mostly Rowdy enjoys being right by her person wherever they are. She is truly a devoted Lab and will adore whoever is lucky enough to adopt her! Rowdy is not a dog to leave outdoors all day while you work. She is a companion dog so must be with people more often than not.
Rowdy also does fabulous in the car and settles down nicely for car rides. She would very much like to accompany you on errands.
Rowdy loves the many soft dog beds in her foster home and sleeps soundly through the night. Her new owner should provide several nice doggie beds through the home so she can settle in wherever you are.
Rowdy is completely housebroken, and non-destructive when left alone. But keep in mind that any new dog could have a potty accident as they get used to their new routine.
Rowdy is spayed, up to date on vaccines and ready for her forever home!
Buttons and bows, whiskers on kittens, no matter how you say it, their nothing as cute as Ribbons! No adorable rhyme can make you smile like this cotton ball of a Labrador can. What a dolly she is!
Meet Ribbons, a 9 year old purebred Labrador Retriever female who will steal your heart and put you into a love trance.
Ribbons is a stunningly beautiful white English Labrador. She has a beautiful coloration and a gorgous face. And you can see in the photos that her smile is to die for. She smiles a lot but she can really get you with her sad face and make you bend to her will!
This gorgeous white cream puff came to us from a very high kill shelter where she was left in the night drop - dumped by her owners - so they would not have to pay the fee to turn her into the shelter. She was thrown out like trash along with another Labrador named Dickens who has been adopted. Two sweethearts.
When we first saw Ribbons we knew she was coming with us. She was such a lovely and sweet girl. Wiggly and adorable and forgiving like all Labs are.
We could see she was severely neglected. Her white paws were stained a redish brown from constantly licking them out of boredom for years. Her ears were infected and she had one entropion eye, meaning her lashes went inward constantly causing pain to her eye. Since Entropion is a contition a dog is born with, we know that since her birth, Ribbons has lived in costant pain and no one had done one thing to fix this easily correctible contition.
We had surgery to correct the entropion eye, fully vetted and treated Ribbons for her ear infections, and all other issues. We did extensive bloodwork and groomed her. Her stained paws are much more white and she is out of pain and looking (as you can see) gorgeous.
Ribbons is great with all dogs and cats. She is completely housebroken and is a gentle low key creature. She is a bit of a couch potato but loves the park and her walks. She is wonderful on leash.
We prefer no children for Ribbons as she deserves to be the center of attention in a lower key household. We can see her with another canine companion or as your one and only provided you are not leaving her alone all day.
Ribbons loves her food and treats and she loves her soft beds and tons of loving attention. She prefers to be where you are all the time.
Ribbons is a tad arthritic and we prefer one-story homes for her to avoid stairs if possible.
Ribbons is a veterinary cleared for adoption and she is waiting for you!
Teslas adoption is pending. Check back to see if her status changes.
Meet Tesla, an absolutely adorable 1 1/2 to 2 year old Labrador puppy who wants to be yours! Tesla is a really pretty youngster with a glossy chocoate coat and cinnamon eyes. She is a beauty and loves to come in for kisses.
Tesla has just a lovely pup temperament. She is playful and loves other dogs. She would love to go to dog beach with you and would love a friendly canine companion preferable close in age for play.
Tesla came to us from a very high kill shelter where no one came to claim her. Not surprising given she was filthy and her ribs were showing. Her "person" if you can call them that, never took the best care of her. No matter as Tesla is no worse for the wear and she loves all!
Tesla would love basic pup training. She is learning her command and doing great and so far she is doig beautifully on the leash and passing dogs nicely. She even enjoys her hikes in the hills of Malibu where she has canine buddies to enjoy nature and sunshine. She is even good off leash once you have a strong bond with her and when she is in a pack environment like a trail with other dogs.
Tesla is young. Labrador remain puppies for 2 full years until their grown plates close. They have a very long toddler-hood compared to other breeds. Just because they look adultish at a year, they are not. They still have a whole other year to go before they are adult dogs. As such, they make mistakes so nothing on counters EVER. This girl is a counter sufer and she will get your medication and eat your breakfast.
Counter surfing is a problem with Labs and we know of three Labs of late who have died from getting into the other dog's medication, their owners medication, and sugarless gum (which has Xylatol and kills dogs). If you keep things on the counters this is not the dog for you.
She loves to chew, so lots of chew toys like nylabones and antlers. She likes toys, and she loves to play.
She is a medium energy girl even for a puppy but needs her good daily exercise of at least an hour hike or jog and then another walk later on. Then she settles right in with the other dogs and is such a nice and sweet buddy.
Young pups don't do well left in the house alone. Remotes, phones, sunglasses, iPads, and any other expensive thing you don't want chewed, put away. If she chews it it is your fault and not hers. She is a youngster and learning. Buy lots of toys and teach her they are hers.
Tesla should go to a home with kids over age 12 as she is a wiggly youngster. She should preferably go with another dog unless one person is home all day.
Tesla is good with dog-savvy cats. She will chase them, meet them, they will swat her, and then it's over. They are friend. She chases them to meet them because she wants to be friends. But cats being cats don't appreciate the ways of the dog world an will probably hide for a week or two or may hiss or scratch at her. If cats simply let her meet them, they will see she is no threat.
Preference will be given to homes with cats over those without cats since we get few dogs that we can cat test.
Tesla was just spayed and her sutures must manually be removed by a veterinarian in another 10 days (1/23/17) so plan a vet visit at that time.
Tesla has been treated for fleas and wormed. She is up to date on vaccinations including rabies and she is now spayed. She is also microchipped.
Meet Marlow! This handsome fella is a purebred black male Labrador Retriever. He is 5 years old and is a gorgeous English Labrador with a blocky head, chocolate brown eyes and gorgeous black coat! He has beautiful comformation and he is the perfect size for the breed standard at about 75 compact pounds. He's not a large fella, he is a solid one.
Marlow came to us from a home where he was adored and spoiled since he was a puppy. However, after having kids, his family soon discovered that very young kids and Labradors aren't always the best match. Little kids can often be very rough and hurt a dog and at times. Often a Labby can be frightened and isolate themselves to feel safe. Also toddlers can keep parents so busy that they just do not have as much time for a dog as they would like.
Marlow's owners adored him and wanted the best for him so they asked us if we could find an amazing approved home for him. We happily took him in to help him find a new forever home.
Marlow is almost perfection! Besides being drop-dead gorgeous, this bench bred English Lab is housebroken, non-destructive when left alone, and an all around happy-go-lucky boy! He knows his basic commands, and loves to please his person. And he for sure knows how to wiggle, wag, and ask you can see, smile!
Marlow is a medium energy boy, who will need good daily exercise, but settles down beautifully after he's had a nice long walk or playtime at dog park.
Marlos really enjoys his walks. He can pull on leash, so is best walked with a training collar and he responds to correction very well. With a little work, he will be an excellent walker staying right at your side and being the envy of the neighborhood. As you can see, he looks quite dapper in his blue harness!
Marlow is good with all other dogs. He does get excited to meet other dogs, so will often bark until he is close enough to meet them - it's pure curious and joyful excitement. Once he meets them he wiggles and wags his tail and gives lots of kisses!
Marlow would do well as your one and only or as a doggie companion or with a lovely canine companion.
Marlow is not cat tested so no kitties for Marlow at this time.
We think Marlow is just adorable - he loves affection and snuggling with his person! He's the typical loving and loyal Labrador and would love a home where he will get lots of love and affection!
We will not consider any homes with kids under age 12 for this boy. He can be very wiggly and jumpy when happily excited so could easily knock down a young child without meaning to. Marlow also does not enjoy youngsters teasing and taunting him so is happiest in a home without little ones. Many dogs don't love this behavior, they simply tolerate it. For Marlow to be happiest, he shouldn't have to tolerate any young kids in his forever home.
Marlow is a fabulous boy who will make one family very lucky! He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Merlot, a four-year-old female English lab who is something to behold! This black beauty has a coat of shiny satin which glistens with radiance when she is in the sun. She has pretty eyes of cinnamon brown which glow with alertness and affection. Merlot is simply gorgeous!
This sweet young labby girl came to us from a high kill shelter. We believe she may have been used to breed puppies and then was dumped when they decided she was no longer useful. How lucky for the Indilab family to rescue such a treasure.
Merlot is a medium energy girl who is amazing on walks! She doesn't pull on the leash and she passes by other dogs beautifully.
As a young lab she will need a good walk or hike every day but will then happily settle down when you get home. When she sees her older foster labby brothers gear down for a snooze she joins right in.
She would be fantastic with other dogs in the home or fine as you're adored one and only.
Merlot is not used to toys or balls and can startle a bit at loud squeaks, but we believe that as she adjusts to a life of love and play that she will come to enjoy her toys. She also has not been taught her commands but Merlot is so well behaved that she can be taught at a leisurely pace with little to no disruption.
Although Merlot is not food obsessed she will check out the countertop if any tasty food item is within reach so as with all labby dogs, no food or medications should ever be left out.
This intelligent girl corrects very easily as well when necessary which is hardly ever! Merlot also appears to be completely housetrained but could have an accident in her new surroundings until she knows the routine.
Merlot is on the shy side and so no homes with young children.
This delight has not been tested with cats so no kitty homes for Merlot. This affectionate beauty is truly a dream come true for some lucky family! Will she be yours?
Meet Tellie - a sweet and loving 7-8 year old yellow female purebred Labrador Retriever. Tellie is a gorgeous creamy colored girl and is truly as lovely as they come. Her temperament is so nice and easy and she is a beautiful Lab. Just look at her adorable face!
Tellie came to us from a very good small breeder who was retiring her and wanted her to get a fully approved home. That's where we came in. We were able to bring her into the Indilab family and start her in a loving foster home so we could get to know her. We are looking for only the very best approved home to treasure this nugget of sweetness.
Tellie is a lower to medium energy typical English Labrador. She loves her walks and is excellent on leash, rarely pulling. In fact, she is even great off leash - she will stay right with you! She will pass other dogs and humans with a smile and a wag.
Tellie is fabulous with all other dogs. She would do great as a doggie companion to any dog and really would love a canine friend. She would do well as your one and only - provided you are home a lot as she really does love the affection and company of her people. We do not want this sweet girl left alone all day by herself. She deserves more love and attention than that.
Tellie loves her toys and enjoys playing with them in her foster home. It would be so nice for her new home to get her many nice toys to carry around. But mostly she enjoys being right by her person wherever you are. She is truly a devoted Lab to whomever is lucky enough to adopt her! Tellie wants to be with her humans. This is not a dog to leave outdoors all day while you work.
Tellie also does great in the car and settles down nicely for car rides. She would very much like to accompany you on errands.
Tellie is almost 100% housebroken, but could have a potty accident as she gets used to her new routine.
Tellie is spayed, up to date on vaccines and ready for her forever home!
Meet Dickens! Dickens is a creamy white purebred Labrador who wags and smiles all the time. He will steal your heart with his adorable sweetness! Just look at him in his holiday attire!
This is one happy-go-lucky yellow male Labrador! He is 9 years old and a nice size for a male Lab. He is a beautiful creamy color and has a very sweet expression. He's a pretty boy.
Dickens came to us from a high kill shelter where he and another Indi dog (Ribbons) had been sneakily dumped into the night drop. The shelter deemed him a stray along with his buddy and he was forced to wait the standard hold period in doggie jail even though we all knew that no one was coming to claim him or his friend.
Dickens is good with all other dogs. He is fostered with a few other male Labs and he gets along great with all of them. He can even be seen playing tug of war with his foster Lab siblings!
Dickens loves his soft toys and balls. He loves to carry them around and play with them. And this boy always has a smile on his face making him extremely hard to resist. He is a dream.
Dickens is completely housebroken and sleeps soundly through the night in his foster parents bedroom. He is an easy going boy who would do well in almost any family.
Dickens came to us a bit neglected. His teeth had a lot of tartar build up and he had a horrible bladder infection too. Poor guy had probably been in pain for some time. We promptly ran bloodwork which all came back clean - he's a healthy senior boy! We got his teeth cleaned, and we immediately treated his bladder infection with antibiotics. Now he is healthy and ready for his forever home!
Dickens is a low to medium energy boy. He enjoys his walks, and some mellow playtime with his toys and labbie siblings. Overall, he is a very easy boy to have around and brings joy everywhere he goes with his constant smile and tail wag! He will do great with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only true love.
Dickens is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned!
Meet Kanello! This puppy man is only 7 months old and is a purebred chocolate male Labrador. He is a dark chocolate color and has a beautiful shiny coat!
Kanello came to us from his owners who purchased him from a breeder as a puppy. They did all the right things with him including starting him in obedience training, socialization, and feeding good food. But unfortunately they no longer had the time to dedicate to a puppy due to their work schedules changing.
Kanello has all the traits to be a truly extraordinary dog! He listens to his person and really wants to please. He loves to be pet and will give affection back in return. He is still a puppy, so will need continued training, but is very easy to train!
Kanello is lab puppy, which means he will need good daily exercise! He really enjoys the hikes at his foster home and even does well off leash - staying with the pack! This boy also loves to retrieve so would enjoy games of fetch in his new home where he will return the ball right back to you.
Kanello is good with all other dogs and even cats too. He would do fine as your one and only or with another playful companion. And would even do well with dog savvy cats.
As most puppies, Kanello will counter surf and investigate your trash (if left out) and may chew the wrong thing. He will need lots of fun chew toys like Nylabones and such, and will need reminders to not search on counters or in trash cans. His new family will need to be vigilant about not leaving food, gum or any medicine on counters so he doesn't get into something he shouldn't.
Kanello is almost 100% on his housebreaking but could have an accident or two in his new home until he learns your routine. He will learn quickly if you take him out often and praise him for pitying where you want him to.
This boy will make a fabulous companion to the family that is ready to give the attention, exercise and training that all Lab puppies need.
Kanello is neutered, and up to date on vaccines.
Meet Frost! Frost is a darling 1-2 year old Golden Retriever / Labrador Retriever who has the sweetest temperament and is a really good boy. He is the best of both breeds with his gorgeous feathered tail and sweet expression.
This cutie came to us from a high kill shelter where he was brough in as a stray. We are so pleased that we were able to get this guy to safety and we know he will make a wonderful addition to a lucky family.
Frost is a young boy who loves attention. He loves other dogs, humans, and even cats so is a good choice for homes with kitties!
He loves other dogs and loves to play. He quickly joins the pack and has excellent doggie manners. He's not a dominant dog and wants to be with the others. He will do great on his walks passing other dogs and is the kind of dog you won't need to worry about with other dogs.
Frost is young and active and will need his daily exercise each day. He would enjoy dog park or even dog beach and he especially loves going on hikes through the canyon as he has been doing in his foster home.
Because he is a youngster, Frost will need a bit of obedience training. He knows sit but is only now learning his commands. It could be that he knows them in another language but he is learning them in English and thus far doing very well! This is a dog who wants to please his person.
True to his retriever heritage, this young darling will notice anything tasty on the counter top. His new home should consider him a counter surfer, like most Labs and Goldens, and as such should plan on counters free of food and especially medication.
Frost will do great in a home with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only so long as someone is around a lot (since he's young). He will do best in a home prepared to give him his daily exercise. A simply walk about the block will not suffice for a young retriever. He needs his hikes or jogs or dog park for fun.
He is a calm boy in the house after his exercise and is housebroken. He likes to sleep where you are so best to have him on a bed in your room where he will happily dream away!
His new home should provide pleanty of toys and chew appropriate things like antlers, nylabones, etc. Young retrievers are known to chew on remote controls or other things they shouldn't. After all, they don't know better. So lots of toys and remotes put away!
Frost is a healthy young retriever. He is a pretty fella with wonderful eyes and a lovely face. He is in great slender shape and does not need to lose weight. He looks great.
Frost is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Spruce! Spruce is a handsome 5 year old Labrador boy who is looking for the best home. Spruce is a happy go lucky, yellow fella of average size and in great shape.
Spruce is a very affable and well adjusted buddy who is wonderful with other dogs. He gets along great with them all and loves his trips to dog park.
Spruce is about 5 years old but is very puppy like in his mannerisms and expressions making his truly adorable! He loves his toys and loves the ball. He is good about sharing toys and like to retrieve.
Spruce is a medium energy dog who settles nicely in the house after he has had his dog park time and exercise. He is still a young Lab so he does need his daily exercise every day!
Spruce doesn't pull to hard on the leash and settles into his walk after just a bit. He passes other dogs nicely and wiggles and smiles. Spruce likes kids too but should only go with other kids as he may get after little kid's toys.
Spruce has never had his own bed before as we have learned when he tore his up. :-(So until he learns about doggie beds, it's best to give him a blanket. :-)
Spruce needs a home that will be patient and work with him on his indoor manners. He is housebroken which is great! But he may not have spent much time inside in his prior life so he is learning not to get on the furniture or the like. He is also learning what toys are his and which are not. His new owners should supply lots and lots of chew toys and other toys as he adjusts so he doesn't mistake a pillow or a remote control for a toy. It's not his fault he is just learning this now. So far he is doing great!
Spruce is healthy and happy and beautiful. He will make someone a fine companion and will do great as a friend to another friendly dog. He may also do well as an only dog although we prefer he go to a home where he will get a lot of time and attention.
Spruce is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Tootsie, an absolutely adorable bear cub of a girl! She is just darling. Tootsie is a 7 year old nugget of pure bred Golden Retriever love! This large and lovely girl came to us from high kill shelter and thankfully we got her out just in the nick of time.
We believe that in her former life, Tootsie was left out in a dirty backyard or dog run area with nothing but a big tray of food for company. As a result, she came to us filthy, depressed, overweight and out of shape. Her coat was dirty and her hair matted. It was heartbreaking.
Tootsie was fully vetted and had a bloodpanel and urinalysis done. She is losing wieght on her healthy new diet and getting in shape.
Once Tootsie was bathed, trimmed and brushed the most beautiful golden retriever emerged! She has a gorgeous wavy coat of light creamy gold with pretty feathering. She sheds very little which is nice. Take a look at her adorable bear paws!. She is a creamy, dreamy, gentle girl.
Tootsie loves to walk! At first, she couldn't manage very much, but her foster family has her walking two times a day and she's getting in shape! She does well on a leash and it is a pure joy to see her get the exercise she deserves! She has already lost several pounds and will continue to approach her ideal weight with consistent increased walking and a healthy grain diet.
Tootsie has the perfect Golden Retriever temperament with an excellent disposition and a sweet calm nature. She loves "hanging" with her foster brothers and grabs an occasional toy for a chew. She soaks in all attention and loves her people right back!
Tootsie should fit well into just about any family but she could knock a small child down with her large size. She is a very gentle loving dog and could do therapy work if you wanted. She is about as sweet and gorgeous a dog we have seen in this rescue and whoever if fortunate to call her theirs, will truly be blessed.
Tootsie will do best in almost any home. She is soaking up the love, attention and care her foster family is giving her each day. We think she will be fine left alone but we hope she will have lots of love time as well. She's great with other dogs so a canine friends may be nice for days when her person is gone.
She does beautifully with her mellow yellow Labrador foster brothers. She is a wonderful companion for another easy going dog or to be your one and only.
Her new family must be committed to Tootsie's continued exercise. We already know she is healthy so this is going to be a breeze!
Tootsie is spayed, up to day on vaccinations, microchipped and has had her bloodwork panel done.
Who will her lucky new family be? Let the cuddling begin!
Meet Nova, a sweet, petite female purebred Golden Retriever who is only about 60 lbs. and aboutt 3 years of age. She is a darker more red Golden color.
This little gal came to us from a high kill shelter where her breeder had been found out of compliance and thus had to surrender her dogs. Nova was in danger and we are happy we were able to get her to safety!
Nova is a shy and timid girl who warms up well to people, but is still learning about new sounds and sights. Nova likely lived her previous life in a yard where she was not exposed to the outside world, so it is all new to her. Climbing stairs, hearing the hair dryer and getting into the car are all new to her. Her new family will want to slowly introduce her to all the wonderful things her world can include. She really wants to please her person and will gladly do what you ask of her, so bringing her new places and introducing her to new things won't be difficult.
Nova is fostered with other dogs both big and small and does great with all of them! She would do very well with another doggie companion or as your one and only if you are home often. Nova even does well with the cat in her foster home, so she could be a great choice for a family with cats.
Nova is a medium energy girl. She would enjoy a couple nice walks every day and perhaps even a hike on occasion. She does pretty well on leash, rarely pulling and wanting to follow you. So walks will be enjoyable with this girl. Just keep in mind that garbage trucks and other loud unusual noises could startle her.
Nova is a very loving girl! She really wants to curl up next to you and be close to her person. She does jump up on people in an effort to be close, so her foster mom is teaching her to greet humans on all 4 paws. She is learning quickly, but will need reminders in her forever home.
Nova is not yet 100% on her housebreaking so her new family will want to take her outside often and ensure she learns her potty routine in her new home.
This sweet girl really wants to bond with a family that she can call her own forever. She will give so much love to the family that is ready to spend some time with her gently introducing her to the wonderful world she has not yet experienced.
Nova is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Marley 2 adopted!
Meet Marley, a truly beautiful and sweet 5 year old Labrador Retriever. Marley is a Bench Bred or "English" Labrador and as such she is a nice stocky blocky girl with a gorgeous tail and head. She has a nice whipped cream colored coat and a sweet expression. And she is as nice as they come.
Marley is a medium energy, lovely girl. She enjoys her walks and trips to the dog park. She loves other dogs - big and small - and will enjoy time at dog beach too! Marley is currently fostered with 3 other Labradors and gets along great with them all.
Marley will need her daily exercise for sure but afterward will settle nicely in the home.
Marley walks nicely on leash and passes other dogs beautifully greating all. She doesn't pull and is a nice walking buddy.
This girl is completely non-agressive and extremely wiggly and friendly. She's a lot of fun and she always smiles.
Marley came to us when her owners decided they no longer wanted to have dogs due to other commitments in their lives. We are glad they came to us so we can do the best for Marley and find only the best home who is the very best fit for her.
Marley is looking for a home where there is another friendly dog to hang with - preferably slightly playful and around her age. She likes being with dogs and loves the pack environment she is in now. So ever a home with 2 other dogs would be great.
Marley lived in a home with children and was great with them so kids over age 7 should be fine for her provided they are respectful, gentle and well-behaved children.
Marley is an inside dog when she is not out to potty or play. She should not be left in a yard all day and she sure doesn't need to be. She is a non-destructive sweat heart. She came to us from a home that kept her outside all the time. She was not permitted inside. So we don't want her to spend one minute outside unless she wants to be there.
Given her life as a 100% outdoor dog, it's amazing how quickly Marley learned to use the doggie door to go outside and to use the stairs! She had never seen stairs before but goes up and down now, no problem!
Marley will do best in a home accustomed to providing at least one hour of walking or dog park or hiking every single day. All Labradors should be getting this much exercise except the most couch potato Labs. Marley is not a hyper dog at all and not high energy. But she is a young healthy darling who enjoys her life and wants to do stuff.
Marley has learned to do the doggie door to go out and go potty. She'll do great in a home with a doggie door but if you don't have one, you would for sure need to take her out often to potty until she learns to let you know when she must go out as well as until you recognize her way of telling you she must potty.
Marley is a pleasure and will make some lucky person or family a fantastic companion.
Marley is spayed, up to date on vaccines and ready for love.
Meet Charley - a gorgeous purebred yellow male Lab! This handsome fella is 5 years old and a true English Labrador. He is a light cream (almost white) color and everyone comments on how beautiful he is!
Charley came to us from his family who had gone through a divorce and found themselves too busy to care for him anymore. He is about 80 pounds which is typical for a male Labrador and he is at a very good weight.
Charley had spent the last few years of his life as an outdoor dog and is now in a foster home learning the house manners he needs to have to live indoors as part of the family.
This gorgeous boy is fabulous with all other dogs - he is fostered with other Labradors and does great with all of them. In fact, he will do best in a home with another friendly dog for company.
Charley is a typical happy, loving, sweet Labrador! He really wants to please his person and needs love, affection and attention that all lovely Labs deserve. He is a very sweet boy and will give you kisses to show his affection.
Charley is a medium energy boy. He is in great shape and will need good daily exercise! He would love hikes, trips to dog park, the beach or a couple long walks each and every day. He is currently enjoying long hikes each morning in his foster home with his foster doggie siblings. Once he has had his exercise, he settles very well in the home.
Charley is still learning his house manners, and has been known to get items off counters, so it is absolutely crucial that his new family keep all items such as food, vitamins and supplements off of all counters. He is housebroken in his foster home, but will likely need reminders in his new home and his new family will need to be prepared for a potty accident the first couple days as he learns his new potty routine.
Charley does pull on leash and is a strong boy, so he will surely need to be walked on a training collar until he learns to walk with his person. He is not a dog that a child could walk. He is starting to learn his commands, but would love a home that will continue to teach him his basic commands. He really wants to please his person so this will be an easy, fun thing to do.
Charley has only seen the cat in his foster home a couple times and does bark at him when he sees him. However he has not chased the cat. For this reason, we will only consider homes with dog savvy cats for Charley at this time.
Charley is a gorgeous English lab who is as sweet and loving as they come! He is a wonderful dog, but will need good exercise and additional training to become the perfect dog.
Charley is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Goose - an adorable chocolate Labrador puppy man! This male Lab is about 8 months old and so handsome!
Goose is about 55 pounds right now, but is still a growing boy, so we believe he will be about 75 pounds when he's full grown. He's in great shape, at a perfect weight and has a nice soft chocolate coat too!
Goose is a typical lab puppy who loves to play, loves toys and needs good exercise every day! He would love an active home where he will get lots of fun play time and activity. He would love hikes, trips to dog park or even a jogging or running partner.
Goose knows his commands of sit and down but he still needs more training to become the best adult canine! He needs a family who is committed to spending some time training a young boy. He really wants to please as so many labs do, so training is easy.
Goose does pull a bit on leash and can be jumpy when excited as well, so is best walked on a training collar until he learns his adult labbie manners.
Goose does very well around kids but keep in mind he is an excitable young boy, so could knock down a small child. Kids over age 6 are best for this boy.
Goose does very well with other dogs big and small. Mostly he loves to play with them! He would do great as your one and only or with another young playful dog. If he's your one and only, he would love to have play dates or trips to dog park for playtime with other dogs.
Goose is looking for a family committed to a lab puppy. This means having lots of doggie toys and bones for him to play with and chew on. And a family that will give him lots of belly rubs (his favorite) along with the training and exercise all young labs need.
Goose is neutered, up to date on vaccines and ready for his forever home!
Lucky 3 adopted!
Meet Lucky 3, the cutest yellow purebred Labrador. This darling retriever is a prince with the most lovely personality and such handsome looks.
Lucky is about 7 years old and a mellow, yet playful guy. He has a beautiful light butter coat and soulful eyes and the Labbie temperament we all adore.
This fella came to us when his family could no longer afford to care for him after their lifestyle had to radically change. He has been well loved his entire life and it shows in the way he conducts himself with humans and other animals.
Lucky is great with all other dogs and cats. He is also good with children and enjoys affection. He seems to really like children a lot. So Lucky is a great choice for a family dog.
Lucky is good at dog park and will play or just hang out with the other dogs. He would do beautifully at dog beach as well.
He is good in the car so a good buddy for errands and trips.
Lucky is also very good on the leach. He's used to using a harness but we like him better on a collar. He walks nicely and will be a great walking buddy. Since Lucky is slightly chunky, losing weight will be a breeze with his walks. His last owner was not able to provide him the exercise he needed.
Lucky knows his basic command and is very obedient. He wants to please is person.
Lucky was not formerly an indoor dog. So he is just learning the doggie door and his potty manners. So far he is doing well. His new owner will continue to praise him as he goes where he is supposed to and they should plan on taking him out very, very regularly until he is in the habit of the right spot each time. This is super easy.
Lucky came to us with a fatty lipoma on his belly and over his eye. He also needed a nice dental cleaning. He did beautifully during his surgery and dental and now he is clean and shiney and ready for love.
We think Lucky will do his best with another friendly canine companion. Or if you are home a lot, he'll do great as an only. He can go with cats and kids over age 6 too.
Lucky is gentle and takes treats like a sweetheart - ever so gently. He is not food or boy posessive. He love affection more than anything and you will see how much you want to give it to him. He is such a special fella.
Lucky is mellow, easy, sweet and a good family buddy. Will he be yours?
Lucky is neutered, up to date on vaccines and ready for his new forever home.
Miss Patches Adopted!
Meet little Miss Patches! This sweest of all sweet angels in obviously not a Labrador Retriever. But she definitely is a very special darling girl! In fact, Miss Patches is perfect!
Miss Patches is a 4 year old purebred Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She is a small breed cutie with a temperament that is to die for.
If you know anything at all about Cavaliers, then you already know that they are the most mellow, easy, and lovable dogs around. They are known for being calm and wanting to be close to their humans. And they are seldom any trouble at all.
Miss Patches is wonderful with all cats and dogs. She is learning to play with toys and she loves being with her foster canine and feline siblings. Miss Patches is fostered with Labs, cats, and one other Cavalier. She fits right in!
Miss Patches came to us from a home where she was severly neglected. She did not get the attention or care she deserves. She was very matted and dirty when she came to us and she was definitely reserves.
Since her grooming she is looking all shiny and darling and she is smiling and feeling so much better. Her slight shyness is fading as she opens up more and more and enjoys the love of her fosters and the happy playful company of the other dogs. This girl is turning into an amazingly wonderful angel and she deserves a home that will treasure her deeply.
Miss Patches would love to sleep at the foot of your bed or in her own be close by you in the room. She is definitley an affectionate girl and would love to sit on your lap and be pet or follow you around as you do your thing. She is quiet and easy and could be a wonderful therapy dog if someone wished to do that. We can see her laying on a sick or elderly persons bed making them smile.
Miss Patches is looking for a home with a friendly canine companion or cat for a friend or she can be your one and only if you have lots of time to be with her. She has been left alone far too long so we will not place her in a home where she'll be by herself all day long.
She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. She is fully groomed and gorgeous.
Meet Seamus! This darling, petite boy is a male Golden Retriever of about 8 years old. He's a nice smaller size which is so desireable! He will only be about 55-60 pounds at his ideal weight. And please....just look at that face. It's the cutest face ever.
Seamus came to us from a high kill shelter where we took one look at him and knew he needed to be rescued. He was quite skinny, his fur was matted, his skin was dry and his ears were infected. The shelter did not vet him property and he would probably have been euthanized. Unbelievable considering what a prize he is.
We promptly got him into foster and got him a nice grooming so he could feel better and be really clean. Then right away we had our vet give him a full exam to be sure he was healthy enough for neuter. After his neuter, he went home and continued to recieve the pampering, healing, medical updates, and love this poor neglected boy required. We are happy to say that Seamus is now gaining weight and eating very well. His ears have been treated and are no longer infected so he feels much better. And his skin and coat, which suffered from flea dermatitis and irritation from being left dirty all the time, are looking better and better! Seamus is clean and shiny and he's nicely groomed with no more matted hair!!
Seamus is such a sweet and darling boy! He loves attention from his people, enjoys being pet and snuggling up to his people.
Seamus is completely housebroken and well mannered in the house. He sleeps soundly through the night on the floor as he's still learning that dog beds are his to enjoy. He does like to be covered with a blanket when snoozing as well.
He walks very well on leash and is a medium energy boy who is mellow in the home, but enjoys his daily walks. He also loves soft doggie toys and tennis balls too! He can often be found carrying a toy or ball in his mouth and sometimes even throwing the ball in the air to entertain himself - it's adorable!!
Seamus gets along well with all other dogs. Although we think he might be happier as an only dog where he can get all the love and attention. He is currently fostered with 3 male labs and does great with them, but does like to push them out of the way so he can get all the love and pets from his people. He may not have gotten much attention in his former home, so he deserves all the love and attention he can get from his family now!
Seamus is untested with cats, so no kitties in his new home at this time.
Seamus is neutered, dewormed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. Now he is ready for his forever home!
Meet baby Hendrick! He's just about 16 weeks (4 months) old, and he's the sweetest little chocolate boy.
Hendrick is a purebred AKC bench bred Labrador Retriever. He came to us when his owner was no longer able to provide for him. We promised to find him a perfect puppy home and so we shall.
Hendrick is outgoing and fun. He loves to play, play, play with the other dogs he is fostered with. He will do fabulously with another friendly canine to romp with. He wants to play all the time!
Hendrick is fostered with cats and is fine with them. He is only a puppy and most puppies do fine with cats.
Hendrick is out going and loves attention. He will bark for attention. He also loves to chew. So his new owners will need to remember that puppies eat everything!
Hendrick will chew shoes, toys, remotes, pillows, pretty much everything like all Lab puppies. If you leave it out and he can get it, He'll chew it! His new family will need to supply tons and tons of nylabones, bullysticks. sturdy toys, Kongs, and more. And they will need to commit to dog park and/or regular playdates to socialize him with other dogs.
Hendricks is learning his potty training and so far doing well. His new home will want to have a crate to assist in his training as well as a provide a safe place for him to chew on his toys if he must be left alone for a short while.
Hendrick should have someone around much of the time for the next few months as he grows up.
We expect a lot of interest in Hendrick since we rarely have little purebred puppies available for adoption. If you are not approved to adopt we will not be able to get back to you if you inquire.
If you have just been approved, someone waiting much longer will probabaly be given priority.
Hendrick is just a little man. He has has his 2 rounds of puppy shots and his owner will need to do his third booster. Vaccinations are extremely important for little guys like Hendrick and until he has completed his next booster he cannot go out into the outside world without rick of serious illness.
Hendrick has been wormed, however his new owner should worm him again on advise from their vet as puppies generally need to be wormed several times.
Hendrick will go out on a neuter contract with his new adopter and a neuter deposit will be taken to ensure he is neutered. He will also have had his rabies vaccination.
This darling little man deserves a home that will be fully committed to exercise, playtime, training, socialization, and of course, digging, barking, chewing, and pottying in the house. It's all part of the fun of owning a puppy.
Hendrick is fostering in Riverside.
Ford came to us from a high kill shelter after being picked up as a stray. He is a very beautiful light cream 2-3 year old Labrador and we were shocked when his owners didn't find him.
He is currently fostered with several other Labradors and gets along beautifully with them all. He plays and kisses his foster brothers and sisters every day and is very gentle with the senior Labs in the home as well. He is extremely playful. At his age, in many ways he's still a pup who needs good daily exercise and playtime.
Ford would love another friendly canine companion to play with or hang out with. Or someone who is home to do lots of hikes and walks with him. He's young and needs his daily exercise! Play dates would be great! Dog park might be ok but Ford is not great with or fond of small dogs. So that must be considered
Fords is so easy to handle and such a love bug! He's a young Labrador so he requires plenty of exercise and he can be shy at first so lots of time and patience too. He loves his walks! Lots of walks with him will release his young energy and help him bond closely to you!
Ford is eager to please and is food motivated, making his training easy and fun. He knows his basic commands and obedience. He wants to please. He is perfect on leash and he loves to ride in a car!
Ford is not food aggressive or toy aggressive. He takes treats very nicely and he waits his turn to be fed. He is potty trained and knows how to use the dog door. He is currently being fed Blue Buffalo grain free food.
Ford loves to play ball, wrestle and run around with other dogs. He is a very, very happy young boy. He is sweet and loving too. He plays hard and then he wants to snuggle with you on the couch and watch TV. He also loves to sleep with his people at the foot of the bed and in the morning you may even wake up to Ford kisses!
He has not been cat tested and we would recommend that he does not go to a home with cats.
Ford has been neutered, is up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. All he needs now is a loving home to call his own.
Meet Shy - a darling purebred yellow female Labrador Retriever! This girl is about 7 years old with a gorgeous cream colored, almost white coat. She is a stunning English lab with a stocky body, nice otter tail, sweet expression, and blocky head! She is the perfect breed standard for an English Bench Bred Labrador.
Shy came to us from a high kill shelter where her family dumped her because they could no longer afford to care for a dog. Their loss is Shy's gain! She is already started on her life happy life with us and is looking forward to a loving forever home!
Shy came to us chunky, with some hair loss on her tail and a coarse coat. When she did her vet visit, we did bloodwork and we had her thyroid tested too since she was so chunky. Tests confirm Shy is hypothyroid, so we started her the very inexpensive but oh-so-helpful meds immediately. The great news is hypothyroid is so easy to treat! Needless to say, Shy is already dropping weight, displaying more energy, playing with toys more, and exercising a bit more every day. With continued thyroid medication and daily exercise, Shy will get down to her ideal weight in no time! She will need thyroid medication for the rest of her life, but these meds are very affordable at only $10/month!
Shy is fabulous with all other dogs both big and small! She is currently fostered with two labs and a small dog and she gets along great with all of them. In fact, we think Shy would really enjoy - and do her best wtih - another doggie companion in her forever home.
Shy is completely housebroken and uses the doggie door! She is non-destructive and sleeps soundly through the night on her dog bed. She also loves every person she meets and is your typical wiggly Labrador!
Shy is a low to medium energy dog. She currently enjoys 2-3 short walks a day and a little play time with her foster doggie siblings. She loves to play tug of war with her labbie siblings and romp around the yard together. And Shy is so easy to walk! She walks right with you and never pulls! What a pleasure to walk with this girl!
Shy is just discovering toys and how fun romping with her doggie siblings can be - it's really wonderful to watch her have more fun every day. She loves the toys and her new home will want to supply many fun and soft toys for her.
Shy is fostered with a cat, and does great with the cat! However she did chase the cat for the first 2 weeks in foster. For this reason, the only cat homes we would consider is one with dog savvy cats and where the family is willing to work with the dog and cat for 2-4 weeks for them to become acclimated.
Shy is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Puppy man, puppy man, if you can't do it nobody can! Ah Lab puppies. We love them. Meet Ryker, an AKC English male Labrador puppy of 8 months.
He is a beautifully bred boy from a very good breeder. He has the blackest coat, the blockiest head, and chunkiest otter tail, and those big round paws that we love. In short, Ryker is oustanding!
Ryker came to us through no fault of his own. His owner loved him and paid a lot of money for him, but she did not realized what was truly entailed in owning a puppy and it was too much for her. She worked and had a busy life that was just not allowing enough time or attention for Ryker. He was left in the yard, alone and she knew it was not a life he should have.
Ryker is your typical English Lab puppy. He loves dogs. He loves people. He loves cats. He is learning to love water. He loves toys. He loves the sky. He loves the dirt. He loves everything! Ryker is just a wiggly adorable happy boy with lovely, sweet temperament. He is the reason we love the Labrador!
Ryker is doing great on his housebreaking using a crate. After all his last owner had him outside a lot so he didn't learn all his potty manners. That said he seems to be housebroken now and doing great.
Ryker is learning to walk on a leash. At first he pulls but after correction he's walking better and better.
He loves to play and will do best with another friendly canine companion young enough to wrestle and romp with. However he could be your one and only provided one adult is home most of the time, and he will be given a ton of play and socialization with other dogs.
Ryker is currently fostered with 4 other dogs and he loves them all - big and small! They all get along great and he plays beautifully with both the senior Lab in the home and the small Cavalier King Charles in the home.
He loves toys and he loves being a puppy and chewing. Chewing is his superpower. His new owner will want to invest in tons of Nylabones, Kongs, and other strong and sturdy chew toys. 5-12 months is the epitome of Labrador chewing. If he doesn't have his chew toys, he'll invent his own. And they WILL include your shoes, wallet, remotes, etc. You get the idea.
We highly recommend a large wire crate for Ryker as it is the best tool for any puppy. It should be kept in your room where he sleeps so that he regards the crate as his safe bed. This way whe you go out for a big, he will be happy in HIS crate with a bullystick and nylabone to pass the time.
Puppy homes must comply with puppy rules. Trash must be behind a door or under the sink in a cabinet. If trash is left in a trash can in the kitchen he will get into it and may be hurt badly. He must be taken out and praised after every potty. He must be boostered a final round with his shots 3 weeks after adoption. We will be certain he is fully vaccinated when he leaves us.
Puppy homes must be patient, willing to do puppy classes and then obedience clases. Puppies may NOT go to homes with young children.
Ryker is a Very nicely conformed Labrador from a good AKC breeder. Although due to preserving privacy we cannot supply his paperwork, we can tell you his sire and dam have been cleared of hip dysplasia, OFA elbows, CAER (eye disease), Centronuclear Myopathy and EIC (exercise indudes collaps) which has become more prominent in the last 10 years. He is a healthy boy and he deserves only the best.
Ryker will be neutered, up to date on vaccinations and health checked again.
Ryker is available to a puppy qualified approved home. If you have not been approved, please do not inquire or you will not receive a response.
Meet Tobi, a gorgeous AKC purebred Labrador Retriever. This boy is a very good looking 6-7 year old prize. He is shiny, healthy, and sweet and he wants to be yours!
Tobi is a cross between an English and an American Field Labrador according to his breeder and we agree. He has a nice conformation with a solid body and nice head, big beautiful paw and and unbelievable coat. He will be the talk of the neighborhood for sure.
Tobi came to us through no fault of his own. His owners bought him from a good breeder and he has been a beloved, indoor pet all this time. He was cared for beautifully and well loved and it shows.
Tobi has taken obedience classes and knows his basic commands. His only behavior we don't love is that he takes his treats too enthusiastically! His foster has been teaching him wait, slow, and gentle. No one ever did that before. This is extremely easy to teach and reinforce simply by using the commands, not giving the treat until they comply, and doing it over and over with lots of goodies. They learn quickly. Until he is perfect with this, children should not give treats to Tobi.
Tobi has a lot of playful energy and loves to play, wrestle and joke around with the other dogs in his foster home. He's a lot of fun. He will do well at dog beach, play dates, and would love a few hikes with you too!
Tobi is pretty good on leash but will need reinforcement. His new owners had a baby whos kept them busy and another baby on the way, so Tobi needs a brush up on being perfect on leash.
Tobi is 100% housebroken and non-destructive in the house. He loves being loved on, pet, cuddled and he loves his toys!
Tobi has not tried the pool yet in his foster home but seems curious. He may like a pool but we aren't sure yet.
Tobi would love another friendly playful canine companion to play with. He will need his good daily exercise in order to settle just beautifully in the house.
He loves going in the car and rides beautifully. He loves his bed and also will use a crate going in on his own. He doesn't need a crate however.
Tobi is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and ready for love.
Mollie Promise adoption pending!
A sweet, petite, darling little bon-bon! Meet Mollie Promise, a 3- year old, precious compact Labby girl who will steal your heart! She is absolutely beautiful with her almost white coat, small frame, soulful eyes, and sweet expression.
Mollie came to us after her owners turned her into a high kill shelter because they didn't want a dog anymore. We saw her and rescued her immediately and we are glad we did. She is just a joy.
We are seaking a dog savvy experienced owner for Mollie as she has a couple quirks which we are working on.
Mollie knows her basic commands and likes to give you her paw. She is completely housebroken and uses a doggie door. She is not destructive and is a basically a medium energy calmer dog. She is easy on the leash and a nice walking companion.
She is great with other dogs and humans and loves to play! At first, however she can be fearful or anxious. We think she may have had some bad experiences in her former life. She is turning into a perfect dog in her foster home so we know she will do the same in her fur-ever home provided we start her out with a new owner who has experience, patience, and is dog savvy.
She is currently fostered with 5 other Labradors and loves them all. At first she was easily aggitated at any obnoxious, overly playful behavior, especially if up in her face. She would sometimes growl or let the dogs know she didn't like it. After such a short time, she is now perfect with the dogs and loves playing with them. She'll even share a bed with any one of them. She's so petite she always fits!
Mollie loves people so she'll love her new owner, but takes awhile to trust you totally. She'll need at least 2 weeks to get bonded to her new owner. Once she leaves her foster home she may once again be shy or fearful meeting new dogs, so her new owner needs to be committed to taking it slow, giving her time, and working with her.
Mollie is very affectionate and loves attention. However, she can be a tad aloof at times too preferring to be on her own. She loves car rides and will be a wonderful errand buddy on days when it's not too hot for a dog to stay in the car. She will do great even on long trips. She loves the car!
Mollie should go to an adult only home. She is afraid of all toddlers and children. Our goal is to put her in a home where she can settle at her pace and feel safe until she is fully acclimated. So no kids for this angel.
Because Mollie can be overwhelmed, she is not a candidate for dog park at this time. Dog park is always a wild card due to the possibility of unknown dogs, sick dogs, aggressive dogs, or unaltered dogs showing up and causing problems.
Mollie's new owners will want to exercise her with walks or hikes or ball throwing which she absolutely loves! She has not gone into the pool yet at her foster home but seems curious and may like swimming once she tries it.
Mollie will do fine as an only dog. She will also do well with another friendly canine companion who is well balanced, not pushy, playful and sweet. However when going with another dog, the new owner will have to expect that it will take a little bit for Mollie to warm up to their dog.
Mollie is spayed, up to date on shots and microchipped.
Meet Gunner Brown, a 5-6 year old handsome hunk of chocolate love! This gorgeous guy came to us from a high kill shelter which is unbelievabe when you look at how gorgeous he is. Plus he is so sweet!
Like many of the Labbies we rescue, poor Gunner was clearly left out in the yard all the time allowing the flies to constantly bite at his ears causing what is known as "fly strike", a very painful irritation which in this case cased a horrible infection and wound. Thank goodness we got him in time to treat it well and he is recovering beautifully. We cannot make sense of the fact that this treasure was left out in a fly ridden backyard until he was discarded at the shelter.
Gunner is a sturdy, handsome, purebred American Labrador with a beautiful chocolate coat and soulful eyes of a rich caramel color. We are surprised how nice his coat is given he was left outside so we know he will really be stunning with good food and the lifestyle of a loved family member.
Gunner boy is slightly chunky from a lack of activity but is more than willing to exercise the extra pounds off! That, along with a healthy grain-free diet will put him in perfect shape.
Gunner has a lot of energy and needs his exercise, but after a good walk or hike he will settle right in very calmly. He absolutely loves fetching a tennis ball and will drop it at your feet for more retrieving. If you buy a Chuck-it® you will have so much fun throwing the ball and will easily wear this fella out. Once you put the ball away he is happy to explore the doggy toy chest for a strong and chew proof toy to gnaw on or toss around. Gunner loves to play!
The most incredible quality about Gunner Brown is his ceaseless happy-go-lucky demeanor! This sweet guy is so joyous about life despite his neglectful past. He oozes happiness and enthusiasm! His affection knows no bounds! He loves leaning into his foster mom for tender caresses and you can see the appreciation in his beautiful amber eyes. He is just irresistible!
Gunner sleeps nicely through the night and appears to be house trained. He sometimes will jump up and down when he is excited but is easily corrected. He's a wiggler and a wagger and will always make you smile.
Like most Labs, Gunner may jump up to see what is on the countertop so no foods or medications should ever be left with in reach. He likes his food but is not food obsessed. Gunner would be happy with plenty of lab proof toys to chew on and play with. Labbies love Nylabones® and Kongs®! Bullysticks are also a favorite.
Gunner is compatible with his two foster brothers but is more interested in human companionship. He would do well as an only dog but should also be fine with another canine.
He has not been cat tested so no kitties for Gunner. He is neutered and up-to-date on his vaccinations.
What lucky family will add this bundle of happiness to their lives??
Meet Cutler, a darling male yellow Labrador of about 4 years who is the nicest fella.
Cutler came to us from a high kill inland shelter where he was picked up as a stray and was not claimed. He is slightly underweight and was not neutered so we are not surprised his owners did not come. After all, whoever owned him didn't care for him as they should have. Intact males tend to roam and we are certain that was the motivation for this boy getting out.
Cutler is a mellow yet playful sweetheart. He loves the other dogs he is fostered with - even the little ones! He's great with little dogs as well as big dogs which is really nice.
Cutler has a calm demenor and likes to hang out nearby. He sleeps in a crate throughout the night without a peep. He is not destructive and not hyper. Just a cool character. He does very well in his crate even though he can be a pain about going in at first. Once in, he is a very good boy and quite mellow.
Cutler was just neutered and as such is learning his housebreaking manners. So far he is doing great and we suspect he will be 100% in the next day or so but his new home will want to expenct a possible potty mistake at first. Any dog can make a potty mistake in a new home.
Cutler may need a home with another dog but without cats. He is very cat-curious so no kitties for this guy.
Cutler was an intact male living in the Inland Empire which is rife with breeders and unspayed females in heat. It is irresistable to intact males and when left alone in yards all day, all they thing about it getting out and getting to that female. It's no surprise he was a roamer. Now that he is altered that behavior will cease. However his new home will want to be extra careful over the next couple of weeks as his testosterone dies off. He should not be left in a yard at all for the first couple of weeks and would do best left in a crate while you are out.
Cutler can get over a 6 foot fence. He knows he can do it and so he will do it if he is bored or alone too long or you are on the other side. His new home should leave him inside when they are gone and he can be crated. Now that he is neutere, this behavior will die down. What's more, once he is bonded with you and comfortable in his new home, we suspect this won't be a concern. Still, in the beginning keep him inside unless you have an electronic doggie fence installed.
Culter is not a hyper dog or a super active one. So leaving him inside is no big deal.
Cutler is exceptionally beautiful. He has a gorgeous thick head and beautiful buttery color. He needs to gain a few pounds which will be so easy now that he is being taken care of. He is doing great on grain free food.
Cutler loves humans and is good in the car. He might even do well certified as a therapy dog to visit senior centers. He likes to meet people and be pet.
Cutler likes his walks and does not pull on the leash at all. He's very easy to walk unless he tries to chase a kitty. :-)
Cutler is a wonderful dog. He deserves a home that will really treasure him.
He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Miss Mango, a gorgeous English AKC-registered purebred Lab of 6 years. She has the stocky, blocky English look we love. She's beautifully bred and from a very good breeder.
Mango lost her home through no fault of her own. Her elderly mother was moving in with family and their little dog didn't like Mango. Even though her owner begged, the family member would not allow Mango to come. This is why we have Mango and we are thrilled to be part of her life. She is doing great in foster and loving all her doggie companions. She's a wonderful girl.
Mango is such a love bunny. For the 6 years of her life she has been a true companion to her elderly owner. Her owner adored her and would take her for walks and to the dog park daily. She is being just as loving in foster where she cuddles up with her foster moms and will lay her head on their feet to snooze.
Mango loves the car and loves going everywhere with you. She's a great errand buddy and just loves going on trips. She wants you to take her to the dog park or to dog beach or even just to pick up your dry cleaning. She really loves car rides. She will jump right in and wiggle and smile the whole trip.
Mango is housebroken and learned the doggie door in her foster home the first day. She would love to have a doggie door to go in and out.
She has loved swimming in her fosters huge baby pool and is going to love a home with a pool or trips to the beach. She also loves her walks and will wiggle for the leash. She is easy to walk.
Mango is currently fostered with two Neopolitan Mastiffs and another Labrador. She is doing great with all of them even the more dominant Mastiffs!
Mango loves her treats and takes them nicely. She takes them right along side the other Labby. She is also fed near him and does fine. However she may need to get to know her new canine sibling before feeding right next to them as she initially was a little nervous at feeding time.
Mango's only flaw is that she can be a tad posessive over nylabones. She shares toys nicely but has shown that she doesn't particularly like another dog bothering her when she has a nylabone. I guess they are her favorite. Of course a human can take it right from her with no issue. She has not gotten snippy with the other dogs but does seem possessive over nylabones.
Mango would love another friendly canine to be buddies with or would be great as your one and only. No kitties for Mango as we have no kitty tested her. No toddlers either as she is not toddler proof.
Mango is heartworm tested and current, spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, current on flea and tick medication and very healthy.
Meet Bo, a lovingly perfect purebred yellow male Labrador Retriever who lost his home through no fault of his own. This boy is so lovely, his foster mom says she would love to keep him if she could! If she didn't have her limit of Labs already, Bo would already have his fur-ever home!
Beautiful Bo is a very pretty almost white purebred with cream highlights and a sweet expression. He's a gorgeous dog with an outstanding temperament and we can't believe his owner let him go. He was getting married and his wife was unable to live with Bo for personal health reasons so Bo came to us.
Bo is 10 years old and is a mellow, easy going boy. He's wonderful with all dogs he meets and great with kitties too. He'll do nicely in almost any home looking for a dog who is trained and perfect.
Bo has medium energy and loves his walks. He's great on a leash after pulling just a bit. He settles right in with you and walks beautifully by your side passing other dogs nicely. Bo loves his walks!
Bo is an older gentleman and has a little arthritis like most Labradors his age. His weight is good which helps so he should be kepts at a healthy weight and not be allowed to get too chunky. We have Bo on a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory which is making a huge difference as he was not on anything when we got him. He prefers carpet or area rugs like most older Labs and can have trouble getting up on slippery floors. His new owner will want to keep area rugs about where there is tile or hardwood to keep Bo from slip sliding!
Bo is in great health. He has a few lipomas common in older Labradors. They don't require anything at all. Bo could use a non-anethestic teeth cleaning in the future - maybe during dental month. He would be a wonderful patient due to his calm, trusting demenor.
Bo will do beautifully as your one and only or as a companion to your other canine or feline friends. He's a gentle boy with a special heart.
Bo is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and is ready for his new fur-ever home. Will he be yours?
Meet Jean, a darling purebred AKC registered chocolate English female Labrador Retriever. Jean is 2 years old and a very petite girl at 49 pounds!
Jean is a very well bred Labrador from a good breeding program. She has the perfect deep dark coat chocolates should have. She was the runt which is why she is smaller in size which is really so nice for someone who wants a purebred English Labrador, but doesn't want a big dog.
Jean is as sweet as they come - she is perfect with every dog she meets both big and small. She is fostered with two labs and she adores them both. She loves running and chasing her foster brother and giving him kisses too!
Jean has not had much exposure to the outside world so she is timid of new people and new places. She responds well to a gentle approach and warms up quickly. But due to her timid nature, a home with young kids would not suit her well. We would prefer a home where adults or older kids can help her come out of her shell and explore the outside world to see how much fun it can be!
Jean warms up quickly to people and loves to snuggle into your arms for love and pets. She is such a sweet soul and deserves the very best loving home!
Jean loves other dogs and takes comfort in their company, so she should go to a home with another dog. She would love another playful dog companion that she can run around the yard and enjoy a game of fetch with.
Jean is a medium energy girl, but at age 2, she is still a young lab, so she will need good daily exercise! She loves to play in the yard with her foster siblings. She would also enjoy trips to dog park or a hike as well. She's a playful young girl who is just starting to learn the fun of chasing a ball and playing with toys!
Jean is still learning her house manners and training commands. She is almost housebroken, but will need some reminders at her new home. She has also not had much experience walking on leash, so would love her new owner to walk with her often to teach her to walk with her person. She does very well with little experience, so we know she will learn fast! She would also love to continue her obedience training with her new family. Typical of most Labs, she is food motivated, so she is already learning quickly with some treats to entice her in her foster home.
Jean is a gorgeous Labrador and her smaller size makes her so easy to handle!! She is already coming out of her shell in foster and bonds quickly to her humans and other dogs. She will give so much love to the family that adopts her!
Jean is healthy, spayed and up to date on vaccines.
Meet Duke! Duke is a gorgeous, super-sweet, 7-year old, purebred Labrador Retriever. This really good looking Labrador is a light yellow, cream color and is a handsome, easy going and gentle soul. He's a perfect dog.
Looks are just the beginning for this boy. Duke is very chill and so content to just go with the flow. If it’s time to go outside and play, he jumps at the chance. If it’s time to take a nap because everyone is busy doing something, that’s great too!! He doesn't make waves. He just complements whatever it is that you are doing.
He’s a low to medium energy boy who's so easy to be with. Although he loves his walks, he is slightly on the chunky side. This is a very easy fix! Keep up with his walks and limit his food and treats. Exercise him regularly and he'll be a perfect specimen of Labiness in just a couple of weeks. Plus he's a pleasure to be with!
Duke is very well mannered. He’s not destructive at all - your shoes, socks, and furniture will stay intact! He’s completely housebroken. He lets you know when he needs to go outside to potty. He is a wonderful house gentlement.
Besides being such a nice boy, Duke is also very well trained! He knows the basic commands, i.e., “sit,” “stay,” “shake,” “lay down.” He could use a little work on “come.” He LOVES to go for a ride in the car. He gets super excited and then settles down as soon as you are on the road. He'd love to run errands with you on those days when it's not too hot for a pup to tag along.
Duke loves his walks and even will enjoy the occasional hike. He is super friendly with all people and all other dogs both big and small. He can pull a little on leash, but with a few reminders does well. He is really a pleasure to walk and everyone will love meeting him.
He seems to love to chase the cats in his foster home, so while he could be okay with cats, he definitely will give chase, so dog savvy cats would be best. He formerly lived with cats and did fine. But new cats are new cats and he will definitley need to be put in his place by the resident cat with a swipe or two before becoming best buds.
This guy will be a perfect companion for some super lucky family!!
Duke is neutered and up to date on vaccines.
Meet St. Andrew, an adorable 6-yr-old purebred Golden Retriever. This boy is always smiling and has the temperament we absolutely adore in our retrievers! He's the perfect family dog. If you every tought of doign therapy dog work, St. Andrew would be a wonderful candidate!
St. Andrew (Saint) is a loving, gentle soul. He smiles constantly, wags, wiggles and is the happiest fella. It's impossible to grasp how he was not redeemed by owners from the shelter where we found him. He was picked up as a stray but his personality shows hims to be a dog who would never run away. Whatever his story, we can tell this guy is the best of the best. He truly is near perfect.
Saint loves other dogs. He is fostered with a couple of other Labs as well as with Phelps the Golden puppy. He gets along with them all and he loves playing with them. He is wonderful at sharing toys and loves to go into the pool with his new canine buddies. In fact, Saint is loving his foster home and everyone there - including the dogs - is loving having Saint!
Besides being great with dogs, Saint is also wonderful with the cats he is fostered with. This guy is just a good dog in every way.
Saint seems to know his commands and is 100% housebroken. He sticks to his own doggie toys and is non-destructive in the house.
Saint is a more mahogany Golden retriever with a really gorgeous dark coat. He has soulful eyes and a warm expression that complement his black bear-cub nose. He's downright adorable.
Saint will do great as your one and only or as a companion to your other canine or feline friends. He's a great walking companion and he also does great in the car. He'd love to run errands with you or go to work and sit under your desk.
Everyone loves this dog! He'd be perfect for therapy dog work since he is so gentle and wll behaved and because he is so friendly that he makes everyone smile. He also looks stunningly handsome in a bandana!
Saint is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. All he needs now is the best fur-ever home!
Meet Melanie, a beautiful yellow purebred English Labrador. This 7 year old dream is a stocky, blocky nicely bred English with nice conformation and a beautiful block head. She's had her front dew claws removed suggesting that she came from an AKC breeder. This is falling out of favor with breeders now, but it was formerly the norm for purebred Labradors.
Melanie is sweet as they come. We cannot believe she came from a shelter. Whoever dumped her, probably did so because she had a terrible abcessed wound under her neck which required expensive surgery. Unfortunately, this is typical for the area where she was found. We had this wound surgically repaired and she is on her way to full recovery!
Melanie is really lovely. She is great with other dogs and loves humans. She likes to be with her canine and human family. She is not food or toy posessive and is great about sharing. She loves to play ball in true retriever fashion. She will do best in a home where someone is around much of the time and she can sleep near her people. She loves to be part of the family.
She will also do beautifully with another friendly dog or two as she is great with the dogs she is fostered with.
Melanie uses the doggie door to go potty. We would love if her new home had a doggie door. But if not, she could have a potty accident or two as she learns the ropes. She is great in the house and is not destrucive.
She does counter surf like most Labs. She loves food after all! Her new owner will have to have clean counters free of bread, avacados and the typical things one might find on a Southern California counter top.
Melanie likes to walk, play, and seems to love the pool. So far she goes on the pool steps and fall in to retrieve a ball. She'll do great with a pool.
Melanie is ever so slightly chunky. Her new owner will want to keep the treats at bay and feed a high quality food in appropriate quantity. This and moderate exercise will get her at the perfect weight in no time.
Melanie is a tad shy. She gets a little startled at new loud noises and sudden motions. This will fade as she becomes more comfortable. She is curious and gentle and wants to see what is around. But she sometimes gets unsure of things. She will hesitate getting in the car and scared during her rides so her new owner will want to take her to super fun places in the car using very short trips. This will teach her the car is safe and that getting in the car means having fun.
Melanie is up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and spayed.
Meet Phelps an adorable, 11-month old Labrador Retriever / Golden Retriever youngster. He has the best of both breeds and is just a super cute boy. As you can imagine, he has an amazing temperament!
This sweet boy came to us from a local shelter where he was picked up as a stray and no one ever found him. Needless to say, we took him the second we saw him! We wanted to be sure his new home would be a fabulous approved fur-ever home.
Phelps is fostered with a couple of Labradors, two small dogs and a couple of kitties. He's great with all of them and he loves to play. The other dogs adore him as well and he's had great fun romping, retrieving, and cuddling with the other dogs. He's the happiest fella.
Phelps is even good with the cats. He chases them a little since after all he is a puppy. But he just wants to say hi and have fun.
Phelps is good on the leash. He pulls a little but corrects beautifully. He is going to be a great walking buddy. He's learning his commands and he loves treats and wants to please so training this young pup will be a breeze.
Phelps is a beautiful color with nice tail feathers and his other feathers are still coming in. He is going to have a goregeous golden coat.
Phelps is a puppy so he will do best in a home where someone is around a lot. He'll be fine as your one and only but he'd also love another friendly playful pup to play with. Or of course you can take him to dog park for play time and fun as well.
He is going to be easy to train on your own but might enjoy a puppy obedience training classes to if you like. Those are always great for the young dogs.
Since he is a puppy, his new owners will want to puppy proof their home just as we do for our babies. Put all remote controls and cell phones away as young dogs might mistake them for toys. Provide tons of nylabones, chewies, toys, and other items specifically for the pup. Young dogs love their toys!
So far Phelps seems to be potty trained. His new home can expect him to make potty mistakes like any new puppy might.
Phelps is a medium energy puppy.
Meet Applejax, an adorable 6-7 year old female purebred Labrador Retriever female who loves looking into your eyes with her wonderful smiling face.
This mellow, easy going cutie is perfect in the house, is completely housebroken, and is just delightful to be with. She is calm and loves to be near. You are guaranteed to fall in love with Applejax with her sweet disposition.
Applejax is a loving girl who wants to be adored by her people. She loves to be pet, hugged and brushed and wants to be where you are all the time, ready to make you happy. She will lay at your feet as you work or watch TV and peacefully enjoy your company. She is a darling best buddy.
She will calmly be nearby as you cook, clean, garden, or work. She is not disruptive save for making you smile and want to stop and hug her.
Applejax is a mellow girl who is also nicely playful. When she is outside and you call her, she is very quick running back to you - wiggling and smiling. Wiggling is definitely this girls strong suit!
This super cute girl is a tad chunky and it makes her even more delectible. We think she could stand to lose a few pounds and with her leash walks and a healthy high quality food, this will be easy.
Applejax is learning her commands and so far knows sit and down and will sit immediately! She wants to please. She is also learning to take treats so gently with her soft mouth. She is so good.
Applejax loves to walk and is a great walking partner. She settles into your pace and is very good. She passes all dogs - big and small - nicely and likes to meet them. She even ignores those snippy little yappy dogs who are nasty toward her.
Applejax was found as a stray. We cannot believe that no one found her and took her home. She is such a good girl and beautiful purebred. Whoever adopted her will be the luckiest of all!
Applejax has been spayed and is up to date on vaccinations. She is healthy, wiggly, and totally darling.
We think she will do well with as your one and only true love as she wants all the attention to herself. And she deserves it. But she will also do fine with another friendly canine companion.
No kitties for Applejax at this time as we don't know how she would do with them.
Meet Rosabella, an absolutely gorgeous 4 year old purebred Golden Retriever. She's a really pretty darker red Golden with a very sweet expression and the temperament to go with it. How she ever ended up in such a situation is beyond us.
Rosabella came to us from a high kill shelter where she was a stray. She arrived extremely dirty and with very bad fly strike on her ears telling us she has been an outside dog for quite a long time. We just can't figure out why someone would do this to her as she clearly is a very nicely bred Golden and someone must have paid a substantial price for her to a breeder.
This beautiful girl didn't know it, but her arrival in the shelter was the beginning of her fairy tail fur-ever!
Rosabella has an incredible coat with rich lustrous shades of dark red and creamy feathering. Even though we got her all grimy and filthy with scabs on her ears, you wouldn't know it to look at her now. After her bath she just wiggled with delight at the glorious feeling of being clean and shiny, perhaps for the first time. She really is too cute for words!
Rosabella is slighty chunky due to the inactivity of sitting in a backyard with no exercise. She won't have any trouble shedding a few pounds though as she loves being walked and is a wonderful walking friend. She is not food obsessed and enjoys her healthy grain free kibbles, treats and a good chew on a frozen marrow bone. She is learning to walk beautifully on her training colllar and will be the most beautiful girl in the neighborhood.
Rosabella looks forward to a family who will give her the good activity that a young retriever needs each day. She hasn't had much training but she is already showing us how each she is to train. She wants to please you every step of the way.
Rosabella's affectionate personality knows no bounds! She happily soaks up all attention and loves to put her head on your lap and look into your eyes. Find her favorite rubbing spots and she closes her eyes slowly, almost falling asleep sitting up! She is truly the epitome of a lovey dovey golden girl!!
Rosabella's gentle temperament and medium energy would make her a wonderful addition to just about any family. She gets along great with her 2 foster brothers and is learning that playing with toys can be fun! It is sad that she did not know what a toy was when she first arrived.
Her foster family is teaching her to go outside to potty and she is doing great. Her new family will need to continue her training and realize she may have a potty mistake as she gets used to her new home. She is eager to please, a willing student and just a pure pleasure! What more could you ask for?!
We have not tested Rosabella with cats so no kitties for her at this time.
This lovely girl is spayed, microchipped and up to date on her vaccinations. Rosabella is excited to meet her lucky new family soon!
Meet Summit, a delectible, 4-5 year old purebred English Chocolate Labrador Retriever. This female is just beautiful with her soulful eyes and smiling face. She has a nice head and otter tail. She is a beauty for sure. Summit is sure to melt your heart.
She wants attention all the time and loves to cuddle on the couch or bed if you let her. She's just a bundle of Lab love.
Summit is an average sized female Labrador with pretty nice conformation. She has a sunburned chocolate coat that really needed a good brushing and boy does she look better now! Her coat should continue to grow into a deep dark brown as it comes in.
Summit is a medium energy, playful girl. She loves dogs and loves to play. She gets along great with the Labradors as well as the little Cavaliers she is fostered with. She is even good with the kitties but she will chase cats at first. If you are overly protective of your cats and can't bear for them to be chased, than this girl is not for you. She wants to meet those kitties and have some fun.
Summit loves the pool and loves to be wet. If you have a pool, she will be in it. And she should be in it because all Labs deserve their hearts desires.
Summit is not destrucive at all. And she sleeps through the night nicely. She seems to be 100% housebroken and is doing great.
Summit loves toys and playing. She loves to retrieve and will bring the ball back. She would love a family that will play with her daily and give her lots of interaction.
She knows sit and stay but doesn't stay well. She wants to learn though so keep teaching! And she loves treats as rewards but they should be limited as she needs to shed a pound or two from her huggable lovable frame.
She will need training as no one ever did that with her. She especially needs leash training as she pulls and is strong. This is an easy fix with a pinch collar or gentle leader and a committed owner.
This angel comes to us from an inland shelter where she was picked up as a stray. No one came looking for her and it's no surprise given her sunburned coat. She was an outside only dog and our guess is her owners didn't care that she was gone. She is loved now though!
Summit is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.
Meet Petunia, a precious winsome waif of a girl! Petunia is a petite, cream colored Labby girl at only about 45 lbs. She's really darling and so easy to cuddle.
Petunia has pearly white teeth and is puppy at only 1-2 years of age. Her new owners will need to commit to puppy love.
Petunia came to us from a high kill shelter. She was picked up as a stray and no owner ever came. Very sad.
Petunia is very calm for a puppy. But her calm energy musn't let her new owner think she doesn't need her daily exercise. She does! She's a youngster and has energy to burn.
Petunia walks nicely on the leash and is generally easy to handle, however she will need pleanty of leash training. Even though she is great with the Labs she is fostered with and great with dogs she is introduced to, she is reactive on the leash when passing dogs as she is a little fearful of them. Her new owner will need to commit to training. At this point she will fuss and bark when passing another dog. Luckily she is small so she is easy to correct, but training will allow her to get over her leash fear and become a perfect walking buddy.
Petunia gets along great with her two older foster Labby brothers. The three Labs like to lay on the deck in the sun together and nap. Lazy, lazy, lazy.
She is wonderful in the house so far. She wants to learn and please but she is a puppy. She has a healthy appetite so if something smells delicious and is on the counter, she will counter surf to get it. Her new home should have all food put away and not left on counters. She is not food obsessed or food aggressive and takes her treats nicely.
She gets very happy when you pull her leash out. She would love a hike with you and loves her walks. But as previously stated, she'll need a bit of work. She has not shown too much interest in toys yet but we suspect that will change as she settles in.
This little sweet pea sleeps wonderfully on her doggy bed. However if you invite her up, she is willing to snuggle with you on the couch as well. She's a love bug for sure.
Petunia has learned "sit" and is now housebroken. She is so well behaved in the home.
We think she will do well as your one and only if you are around much of the time (she's a puppy after all), or with a nice friendly canine companion after proper introduction.
Petunia is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations.
Boston Cream adopted!
Meet Boston Cream, the cutest purebred chocolate Labrador Retriever around! This 1-2 year old boy is absolutely beautiful and has a wonderfully sweet personality.
Boston is a good looking larger male youngster. He has a deep dark chocolate coat and a nice blocky head. He has an adorable expression and a very loving demenor.
This boy came to us along with his mother, Applejax, also listed for adoption. He has lived outside and was neglected. He shows signs of flystrike on both ears which indicates he was never let indoors. He is a tad shy of new things and warms up so quickly with his wiggles and smiles.
Boston is on the calm side for a young male. He's an easy going boy who is very good in the car and house. He is doing well on his housebreaking and leash training and he is learning his commands. So far he is doing well but will need continued leash training and socialization with other dogs.
Boston is a real lover. He wants to please his person and be close. He wants to learn and he is smart. He just needs the right owner to help settle him in and work with him.
Boston would love to be in a home with another affectionate female or male dog. He would be great with kids but for now we prefer homes without young children as he could accidentally knock ower a toddler with his wags and wiggles.
We don't know how Boston will do with cats so no kitties for him at this time.
Boston loves the car and would love being your errand buddy. He loves to be pet and hugged and adores getting attention from his humans.
Boston is sleeping nicely behind an x-pen in his foster home. He doesn't whine or cry and sleeps through the night. He is currently fostered with his mom so we are not sure how he would do alone. For that reason he must go with another dog.
Boston is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
Meet Basil, a tender little sprig of love. Like her name, she is pretty, sweet, and a tiny bit spicy. She’s the best of both easy and fun. This petite purebred Golden Retriever female is pure delight in every way.
Basil is a beautiful 3 year old Golden Retriever. She is very petite at only 50 lbs and has the most loving and calm personality. Her coat is in great shape and her feathers are lovely. She is a very pretty girl.
Basil loves other dogs - big and small. She also is totally unconcerned with the cats making her a great candidate for kitty homes.
She likes the water so if you have a pool, that would be fabulous! She would also love another friend canine companion maybe. We think she will do fine with children too.
Basil is extremely well behaved in the house. She is good about sharing toys with the other dogs and is house broken. She loves her toys for sure so lots of toys are in order!
She rides well in the car and would love to run errands with you on cooler days. She’s the kind of dog who can even go to work with you as she is calm, friendly, small and well behaved.
She is a young girl and she will need her daily exercise of walks, hikes, dog park, dog beach and more.
Basil doesn’t pull on the leash and is a good walking buddy.
She likes her crate but doesn’t seem to need one where she is now. She has a few nice dogs living in the home keeping her company so anxiety is not an issue at all.
We think this little gal is a dream. It’s hard to imagine that someone left her in the night drop at a high kill shelter when they dumped her.
Basil is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. All that’s needed now is the best home.
Meet Senna, the cutest little Labrador puppy girl. This little missy is so sweet and slightly shy. She is a precious angel.
Senna is a beautiful female Labrador Retriever. She is just 5 months of age and has a lovely cream coat. She's a little bit of a thing but will be a nice sized medium female at her adult age. She has a sweet expression and deep brown eyes.
Senna came to us when her family decided that having 4 children with another on the way precluded the from owning 2 puppies. They contacted us to help Senna and her brother Cassill find new fur-ever homes. The puppies are not being adopted out together. It is never a good idea to adopt two puppies at once.
Senna is slightly shy but wonderfully loving and playful. She can be timid and then warms up. She would like a home with another friendly canine companion and where someone has the time, patience, and dedication puppies need.
We will not be adopting Senna to a home with young children even though she would be fine with kids. Families with young children simply do not have the time to dedicate full attention to a puppy. This is why we got Senna in the first place.
Senna loves, loves, loves the pool. She loves water and loves to swim and even more, she loves to swim with other dogs. She would love a home with a pool and another young playful dog.
Senna will need training. She is not 100% housebroken yet. She needs to learn the leash, her commands and everything else puppies need to learn. She would love a puppy class where she can shine. Since she is shy, we hope her new owner will put in even more effort in socializing her early. That will make all the difference in her ability to be a great canine citizen as an adult.
Senna has recieved her puppy vaccinations.
Senna will need to be spayed after she is 6 months of age. We will require a spay deposit at the time of adoption to be refunded upon presentation of her spay certificate to Indi Lab Rescue.
Senna is good with cats so kitty homes are file.
Remember puppies are destructive, chewing, digging, barking, eating, pooping, crying machines. They also make you laugh, love, and find your soul. Adopting a puppy is a life long committment and not to be taken lightly.
Meet Cassill, a darling male Labrador Retriever puppy of just 5 months. This little fella is the sweetest guy and is absolutely beautiful.
Cassill is a cream colored puppy and is a good size for 5 months. He has big old paws that are too big for his body and he is downright adorable. He's a small fry now, but his new family should expect a larger sized adult Labrador in a year. He'll be a beautiful dog!
Cassill is fostered with several other Labradors as well as cats and he loves them all. He loves to hang out with his buddies and he loves to play. He especially loves swimming in the pool. In fact, it's hard to keep him out of the water!
Cassill came to us with his sister, Senna when their owners realized they didn't have time for puppies - especially as their owner was pregnant with a 5th child. We promised to fine only the best homes for each of the puppies where they can have the dedication all puppies deserve.
Cassill is quite social and loves other dogs. We would love to place him in a home with another young playful dog so he will have company and lots of romping time.
We will not be placing the puppies in homes with young children as this is the entire reason they were given up. Parents of young children simply do not have the time for young puppies. That said, the puppies are extremely friendly with children.
Cat homes are fine as they are cat friendly. They are fostered with a kitty now.
Cassill has recieved his vaccinations. We will require a neuter deposit at the time of adoption to ensure he is neutered at 6 months of age.
Puppies love to chew, dig, potty indoors, destroy, cry, eat everything, and be adorable. Puppies require patience, dedication, training, time, love, and naturally exercise.
We expect a lot of interest in the puppies so please allow 24 hours for a return reply. If you have not already had a home visit, you likely will not get any reply back.
Nick and Charlie adopted!
Meet Nick and Charlie, two beautifully bred AKC English Labrador brothers. These gorgous boys are 10 years young, and are exceptional in every way - from their breeding to their training to their unbelievable health. They are pretty much perfect!
These boys lived a charmed life since they were puppies. They were very well loved and meticulously cared for. They were trained very well and they were treasured family companions. They have only now lost their amazing home through a sad tragedy. They were owned by a lovely elderly couple. The wife passed away and the husband was taken to assisted living. Our hearts break for their owner who loved them so much and who is also mourning the loss of his beloved wife.
Nick and Charlie are in excellent health and are very young for their ages. They are wonderfully playful with each other and all other dogs and are very mellow and calm in the home. Both have had very good heath care their whole lives. They have just had bloodwork done and they each have the bloodwork of much younger dogs.
These kids are well trained too! They know their commands and are very obedient. They are completely housebroken and non-destructive in the house. They can even be left alone for hours and are such good boys.
Nick and Charlie are the happiest Labs. Tails-a-wagging non stop and smile all arounds. These lightly playful wiggly boys just want to please you and make cute faces all day. They love carrying their toys and Charlie loves to carry a leash around in his mouth. He will bring you the leash and when the leash is on his brother Nick, he'll grab it and walk Nick around. Of course Nick lets him too! It's adorable!
They love the toybox and will look around in there until they find something fun they want to play with! They walk perfectly on leash and they love snooping about the yard and laying in the sun.
These boys are the typical Labradors we love. They are everything that makes our breed the best breed and the reason we do what we do. Whoever adopts these two prince charmings will so lucky and of course be forever blessed.
The boys are up to date on all vaccination, heartworm tested, fully groomed, nais clipped and ears cleaned. They are neutered and have had bloodwork done.
Prince Baylee adopted!
Meet Prince Baylee, an adorable young male purebred Labrador with the looks and temperament we love!
Baylee is a 3-4 year old Labrador with beautiful burnt sugar eyes and a nice yellow honey coat. In the words of his foster mom, " he is exceptional"! Well that's saying something!
Baylee is gentle, smart, affectionate and quiet. He is completely nonreacitve with other dogs and is fostered with 4 other dogs now who he loves. Baylee also passes other dogs nicely and really is just wonderful with them.
Baylee came to us from a very high kill shelter where his owner turned him in not wanting him any more. He showed up with a scratch on his nose which you can see in his photos. He was pretty happy when we rescued him and hasn't stopped wiggling since. We are so grateful we we able to snatch him up before he faced a horrible fate.
Baylee is great in the care, just jumping right in. He is a great buddy rider! He rides nicely with other dogs too. Baylee isn't territorial or jealous and is fed right next to his foster sibling dogs without any problem. He loves to eat like all Labbies but so far we have not seen any counter surfing which is nice. Baylee takes treats gently and wants to please.
Baylee loves to walk and is really good on leash. He pulls just a little but certainly nothing serious. He will be a perfect walking companion and will be fine passing other dogs on lead.
Baylee would love to go to dog park and dog beach! He loves going to his foster's play group at their local dog park and is a very social fun fella.
When he went to the groomer to get his bath, he was a ver good boy. Although he was afraid of the dryer, he was completely well behaved and a perfect gentleman. And by the way, he looks more handsome than ever!
Prince Baylee sleeps on a doggie bed but did get up in bed with his foster moms late at night. A light correction, and he was right back down. He will be happy sleeping in his bed nearby or with you in yours! And he shares a bed with other dogs beautifully too.
Baylee is bright and wants to please. He picks up everything about the house and environment quickly and wants to fit it. He is a great dog.
Baylee is housebroken and uses the doggie door to do go potty. There was a mishap initially, but it seems this boy has figured out the potty rules!
Baylee will do fine with older kids, another dog, or even as you one and only provided you are around a lot and will take him to dog park and dog beach. He's a social and loves to be with other dogs.
Baylee is on the calm side in the house but is also playful. He's the perfect mix of fun and easy.
Baylee is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Merci, an insanely adorable AKC registered English purebred. She is sad sack face that melts your heart as she wiggles her way right into your soul! This happy, wiggly chocolate female Labrador Retriever is seriously as cute as they come.
If you look at her last photo, you can really see her comformation. She has a beautiful English conformation and a fabulous otter tail!
Merci is 7 years old and loves to play, swim, and make sad adorable faces. In fact, the sad adorable face is her superpower. She's got you under her thumb (or should we say paw?) in no time!
Merci is a very nicely bred purebred girl. She is on the smaller size and is very pretty. She has a nice otter tail and comformation. Merci has had several litters of puppies and is ready to retire to the life of being a treasured family member.
This wiggle butt is really something. She loves all other dogs and will do fine with cats. She loves all humans too and would be wonderful even with youngsters. She is playful, yet calm and gentle. She's a really good girl.
Merci comes to us from not the best situation. She was fairly neglected and deserves much better. When she came to us we had her vet checked, treated for ear infections, spayed her, groomed her, trimmed her nails, cleaned her ears and caught her vaccinations up to date. She even had a full dental. She is enjoying her warm soft bed and cuddling with her humans.
Merci's normally extremely dark coat is sunburnt and dry from being mostly outdoors. As she eats better food and is better cared for her dry coat will continue to come in smooth, soft and deep dark chocolate.
Merci is easy to walk on the leash and will not pull. She will pass other dogs nicely and wiggle and smile. She would love to ride in the car with you to do your errands too!
Merci is fostered with several other Labradors and gets along so very well with them. She is great at sharing her toys, eating along side the other dogs, and playing with everyone. She enjoys a dip in the pool now and then and she loves to carry a toy around in her mouth. She will even collect several toys and bring them to her bed in the cutest way.
Merci will do best in a home with another sweet friendly canine companion. Or she may be wonderful for someone who is around much of the time. We want her to have a lot of companionship and care as she really deserves it.
Merci is non-destructive and a very good girl. She wants to please and she really is about the sweetest most gentle girl on the planet.
As we mentioned, Merci is spayed, up to date on vaccines, has had a dental cleaning, and is fully groomed.
If you have been approved to adopt, having had your home visit, please let us know if you feel you have the home this angel deserves. We warn you, you will fall in love so be prepared.
Meet Mollie Two! This darling purebred yellow female lab is perfect in every way! She is 8 years old and is a standard sized lab at about 75 pounds. She is an AKC purebred Lab, almost white in color and just beautiful!
Mollie's good looks are only the beginning. This girl is perfect with every dog both big and small and even great with cats too! She basically ignores the cat in her foster home. She has been around many dogs big and small and is now fostered with dogs big and small and is just fabulous with all of them.
Mollie is a very mellow girl - best classified as low energy. She adores her dog bed - in fact any dog bed! With so many dog beds in her foster home, she often has a hard time deciding and will move from one dog bed to another throughout the day - testing them out like Goldilocks. It's adorable. She is also easy on the leash and is not jumpy or mouthy in any way. One or two easy walks a day is plenty for this girl and if you miss a day or two of walks, no big deal - she's happiest lounging around the house with you.
She is completely housebroken and will even use the doggie door to let herself in and out of the house during the day. She's also non-destructive when left, yet does the trademark lab wiggle when you return home to greet you with a happiness and tail wags! She enjoys doggie toys - and can be found chewing on a soft squeaky toy now and again.
Mollie is also well trained - she knows all her commands of sit, lay down, and stay! She will even sit for you before you put her food bowl down - what a good girl! Like most Labs, Mollie is food motivated and will do most anything for a treat! She gets excited to eat her meals twice a day and even more excited when her foster mom gets the treats out.
Mollie would do great as your one and only or would make a perfect companion to another dog and/or cat as well. If she is your one and only, it's best if you are home often as she is accustomed to having the company of her people often. She would also be a great dog to bring to work with you, if you have this option as she is very mellow, easy going and great with all people and other dogs.
Mollie sleeps soundly in her foster mom's bedroom at night - on a dog bed at the foot of the bed. She is so easy to have around, and cute and silly too!
Mollie is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. She even got her teeth cleaned while in foster and did great, so now she has pearly whites too!
Meet Apollo. Apollo is stunningly gorgeous AKC registered yellow purebred Labrador Retriever. He is 5 years, a perfect weight and has very nice conformation. He's a nicely bred Labrador.
Apollo has a thick cream coat, bright eyes, and block head, and an otter tail. He's a happy friendly boy who always has a smile on his face and a wag in his tail. A true Lab at his core, this fella is everything we love about our breed!
Apollo came to us after his owner could not longer care for him. He is a lucky boy as his new home will be far superior and much more caring.
This fun young boy is medium energy. He is currently slightly out of shape as he was alone in a yard most days. He should do a daily walk to get back in shape and not overdo it right away. Once he's more in shape, he and would love dog park, play dates, long walks, and love hikes or the beach on weekends. He is already enjoy his walks with his foster family.
Apollo settles nicely in the house. He is 100% house broken. He has nice house manners and stays off the furniture. He is not destructive and is not a chewer, digger, or barker. He's a great, well-behaved boy and a joy to have around.
Like most Labs, he is interested in all human food. Its important his new family does not leave food, bread, avocados, bananas, and other "counter" foods where he can reach them. All Labs try to counter surf and if they find something making their work worth it, it just reinforces the behavior. It's always best to put all edible items away.
Apollo does pull on the leash, so he is best walked with a training collar and will benefit from some training to walk next to his person instead of pulling you with excitement. His foster family uses a gentle lead collar and gets great results. He loves his walks and getting out with his person. He enjoys saying hello to any man, woman, child, or dog that he sees.
Apollo knows “sit “ and is learning his other commands. He's easy to train and wants to please. Apollo is food motivated and takes treats gently giving you a super easy way to train him. Apollo loves to chase the ball and bring it back. He is learning how to drop it so you can throw it again.
Apollo will need to be on a high quality grain-free diet as is allergic to grain and does very poorly on cheap food. His coat will continue to improve as his diet remains grain free.
Apollo is really good boy in the car. He will hop right in and just lay down to enjoy the ride. He would love to accompany you on errands.
Apollo loves the young Labrador he is fostered with and loves to play with him. He loves other dogs and will do well with a canine companion. He would also be fine as your one and only provided you are home most of the time. He already spent years alone in a yard and we want more for him in the future.
Apollo is neutered, up to date on vaccines.
Meet Jake. A sweet 4 year old Labby male with a delicate soul. Jake is a creamy white handsome boy with a lovable disposition. He’s a medium easy dog who loves a good walk each day.
Jake came to us with another Lab from a neglectful situation. He was ignored, starved and treated harshly. He came to us underweight, shy and depressed. But he has become an entirely new dog. Jake he is thriving in his foster home with five other Labradors. He’s learning to be comfortable in a house with his humans and he’s learning how nice people can be. Like almost every Labrador, Jake has the temperament to bounce right back into the Labby personality of love and wiggles!
Jake is a slight Labby mix giving him gorgeous hazel eyes which look beautiful with his Labby cream coat. He’s a taller Lab and could use a few more pounds given his past. He is putting on weight with good food and each day looking more scrumptious. He has adorable ears that stick out just the right amount to make you smile.
Jake is always smiling because he loves his new life. He wants to please his humans and loves to snuggle and follow them around. Jake is happy sleeping in his doggie bed in the same room. Sometimes - only when invited to do so - Jake will enjoy snuggling next to you in your human bed.
Jake loves to be kissed, pet, and adored. He is great in the car and loves to help run errands. He leash work has gone beautifully and he walks like a champ. He’ll need continued reminders to walk perfectly. After all, until us, Jake never had a walk, but you sure wouldn’t know that now!
Jake uses the dog to potty and his potty training is going great! Like al rescues, he could potentially have an accident in his new home so gentle guidance and positive encouragement guarantee perfect results. He’s doing well with his basic command and is learning to “wait” at the door until invited outside. Jake can get scared if you raise your voice and will cowers and lay down. But will dance around and play with praise. Being calm and given easy guidance to Jake will ensure he settles into his new home really well.
Jake is not food driven. He eats slowly and likes to graze. No surprised given his former lack of food, Jake can get protective of his meals. He is learning this is a no-no and is currently being fed with 5 other Labs with no issues. But his new owner will need to either commit to following our lead on this or will need to feed him separately from other dogs until his adjusts. Jake never had toys and he loves the squeaky ones. He’ll carry around a soft football too. Balls not so much.
Jake would love a patient adult only home. His new adopter must be compassionate and have sensitivity to his former situation. They must commit to providing a safe environment with absolutely no yelling and where Jake is given gentle guidance, soft correction, lots of praise and positive reinforcement. They must be willing to continue working with him.
Jake is medium energy and athletic. He enjoys walks and may be a good jogging or hiking partner too. He is a lower key dog.
No young children for Jake. We know he is good with kids, but we want him to have a lower key, easier going transition into his home than is possible with kidoes running about, making noise, and generating too much activity.
Jake is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccines. He deserves the very best home. Will it be yours?
Meet Hershey, a gorgeous, petite senior Labrador Retriever with the face of a teddy bear cub!
Hershey is a female purebred English Lab from champion lines and she would love a home that will spoil her as she deserves. The best thing about Hershey's pedigree is she comes from lines with superior health and temperament and boy does it show.
This beautiful girl is not all looks. Her petite darling and downright adorableness is only part of her charm! Hershey is about the most loveable Lab around. She will steel your heart in seconds and melt it away with her chocolate brown eyes and little wiggles.
This angel may be a senior, but she looks like a puppy! No one would believe that Hershey is actually 12 healthy, strong, years old! Don't let her age dissuade you because there is nothing "12" about this girl. She is healthy with excellent bloodwork! It's no wonder given her pedigree's tests and certifications for eyes, hips, and elbows. This is a beautifully well bred girl has lots of life and love left to give.
Hershey is lightly playful and loves her foster siblings! She is fostered with 3 other female Labbies and 1 adorable female Cavalier King Charles Spaniel! She loves them all and they love her too. Her foster just had an Independence Day party with 9 other dogs and Hershey loved it. She didn't even mind the fireworks except for a couple barks!
Recently her foster parents took her on a road trip in their big nice mobile home! She did beautiful on the trip and was a great companion! She is a dog that is easy to take with you. Her nice smaller size and personality make her a great candidate to go to work with you too.
Hershey is a gentle, easy going girl who is wonderful in the home, trained, and housebroken. She knows her commands and does not pull on the leash at all. She is curious about the pool and we think she would love a swim but so far she just checks it out.
Hershey is very healthy. Save for the normal tough of arthritis, she is in good shape. She takes a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory daily and she should remain on that plus a nice glucosamine supplement to keep her spry.
Hershey will do beautifully in a home with other dogs or as your one and only. She is great with all dogs and lived with kitties so cat homes will be fine.
It's is sad that this beautiful regal and special girl lost her home at this age. We see more and more people giving up their senior dogs and it breaks our hearts. Senior dogs are wonderful to adopt and they ease into new homes almost effortlessly.
This sweety deserves a wonderful place to live out her years. Will she be yours?
If you feel Hershey is right for you and you would like to spoil, treasure, and cuddle her, please let us know.
Introducing Cas, the sweetest 4 year old Labby boy you would ever want to meet! Cas is a beautiful pale yellow Male with soulful eyes, a sweet expression, and a lovely temperament. This fella deserves the best fur-ever home.
Cas came to us from a household where he was treated very poorly. Neglected, ignored, not fed enough, you name it, Cas put up with the worst home ever. Luckily our volunteer heard about Cas and was able to convice his owner that it was time to let Cas go were he was truely wanted. It was quite a chore to finally convince the owner and get this dog, but lucky for Cas we never let up and here he is!
What it so cool is that in true Labby fashion he is quickly forgetting his sorrowful past and embracing the joyful labby life! He is smiling, lightly playful, loves the sunshine, his foster brothers, and his new humans in his foster home. What a great start! This fella is a star.
Cas is a beautiful pale yellow Labrador with the most exotic silver-green eyes you have ever seen! He is medium tall and a great medium size. Currently this neglected fella is overly slender as he was underfed, but with an ample nutritrious diet, Cas will fill out to look like the gorgeous lab he was always meant to be! He is already putting on weight and loves his regular feedings and premium food!
Cas is a very pretty boy. He's a very slight Labby mix and that's what gives him his beautiful exotic eyes. He is downright adorable and smiles all the time! Our favorite part is his delicious ears which stick out a bit and are floppy, expressive and just darn adorable! Sometimes he looks like the "flying nun!" Talk about adorable!
This sweet guy has medium energy and would love a good walk every day. He's a beautiful walker! Even though he's never had training he doesn't pull on the leash. He will pass other dogs nicely and loves to cruise with his people. He is aware of the ground squirrels and rabbits and would love to chase them so its good to keep an eye out! If Cas gets away to chase one of these critters, it would be difficult to get hin back since he is both a new boy in a home and he is so excited about the rabbits. A martingale collar is best so he can't ever slip out of a flat collar.
Cas does very well with his mellow foster brothers and would really enjoy another medium energy dog to romp with. He would also do fine as an adored only dog. We don't know about cats so no kitties for this fella! He goes into the play bow so his new caine buddy will be thrilled to play with him!
Caz likes to chase after the tennis ball a bit and has not shown much interest in doggy toys. His favorite thing is to lean in to his human and soak up gentle rubs with his eyes happily closed! He is a true lover boy who will steal your heart!
Cas's new family should commit to giving him some nice Labby training. He is very intelligent and sensitive and corrects extremly easily. Cas wants to please! He will be unbelievable with a little training because even without it, he is just wonderful!
He stays off counter tops and out of trash cans. He enjoys his food and check up bones but is not food aggressive at all. He will help himself to the great outdoors if the front door is left open so he needs to learn to stay until invited out. He is working on his house training and sleeps beautifully in the crate. Overall Cas is doing great! But like all rescued pups he need reinforcement in his new loving home. Whoever puts a little effort into this prize will truly have a top quality buddy!
Cas is neutered and up to date on his vaccines. Will he be yours?
Meet Dexter, an adorable creamy, white Labrador boy around 3-4 years old. He is very cute and still very puppy-like in his looks and mannerisms. He is a happy, young boy.
Dexter and his friend were found as strays and turned into a high kill shelter. They were chipped and when the family was contacted they did not want to pay the rescue fees to pick them up, but luckily we were able to save them.
Dexter is a very active and medium to high energy youngster. He loves to play with a ball, go on walks and is learning to swim. He needs a lot of exercise, but he settles nicely. He loves to chase the tennis ball and chew on the ball. His favorite thing to do is chase the ball, but he is not obsessed with it.
Dexter is good with other dogs. He is currently being fostered with 5 other Labradors and is doing great. He is learning to play and will need some work on sharing the ball. He is not toy aggressive, but he is still learning to play with others.
Dexter knows basic commands and knows how to use a dog door. He has not had any accidents in his foster home. He walks great on a leash, without any pulling and he loves to go on walks. He also rides perfectly in the car.
Dexter loves his people and loves to snuggle with them on the couch while watching TV and would probably love to snuggle up in bed with you as well. He is very affectionate and sweet.
Dexter is not food aggressive, but like most Labradors he loves to eat. His foster family is working on how he takes treats from your hand because he gets excited. They are also working on his counter surfing. He is very curious about the counters, but hasn't stolen anything, but he will need continued training.
Dexter will do best in a home where he gets lots of attention and exercise. We think that he may have escaped his previous home by digging or jumping to get out. His teeth are even worn down in some areas where he may have chewed on something to get out of a situation.
Dexter would probably do best in a home where he has a playmate since he was living in a home with a friend and is doing well in foster care with other dogs. He is not cat tested, so no kitty homes at this time.
Dexter is a very active and playful so we would not place him in a home with toddlers because we would not want him knocking a child down accidentally.
Dexter is neutered, up to date on his shots and microchipped.
Meet Egan, a super cute chocolate Labrador puppy man of around 1 1/2 years or so. Egan is an apparrent purebred youngster with a nice dark coat and sweet expression. He's a very good looking boy with a lovely teenage disposition.
This young boy was found as a stray and unbelievably was not claimed. He's such a sweet kid that we were shocked his owners didn't find him. He is a beautiful Labrador and someone out there must be heartbroken.
Egan is still a puppy at 1 1/2 - 2 years of age. Labradors are puppies for the first full 2 years and still are mature or even fully grown even though they can technically reproduce. This fella is no exception with his cute silly ways and puppy faces.
Egan is a nice boy and fairly calm for a puppy. He will need his daily play and exercise time as all puppies do but he should settle nicely afterward as he is not a hyper guy.
Egan likes other dogs and will do nicely at dog beach or dog park having fun and getting exercise with friends. He will also enjoy hikes and lots of nice walks too.
Egan wants to please his person as do most Labradors. He will respond beautifully to continued training. He's already good with basic commands and doing well on the leash, but like any Labrador youngster he can pull too and will need lots of continued reminders and brush ups.
We think Egan will enjoy another friendly canine companion for play and fun. But he may do well as your one and only provided someone is around a lot of the time as he aclimates.
Egan is still too young to spend all day alone or even be left in a yard by himself for long hours.
This young many will need lots of nylabones, chewies and fun toys to play with. He will love some ball tossing and may enjoy a jump in the pool too! Egan will make a nice family dog.
Egan will do great with kids although he's too young to place with toddlers since he's a good sized boy at this point but still a puppy. We don't want him knocking a little one over accidentally.
We have not cat tested Egan so no kitty homes at this time.
Egan must go to a home where the gates of the yard are locked. While in our care we have observed this smart little man opening a gate latch with his nose. He did not go anywyere but he clearly could let himself out for a walk if no one were home and the gate were unlocked. He's a clever fellow!
Egan is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Sarah Smile adopted!
Meet Sarah Smile! She's not a Lab, she's a purebred Golden Retriever who has had a summer haircut!!! She's nice an cool for the hot summer months and her petite frame makes her so cute! Especially when she wiggles that still fully feathered tail! Her feathered coat will return soon but until then she'll enjoy her comfort.
Sarah is the sweetest Golden Retriever girl in the world.
Sarah Smile is about 8 years old, sweet as sugar, and honestly perfect. She showed up as a stray in a very high kill shelter and our volunteer fell in love with her right away. Sarah does have a beautiful coat, but it was matted and the shelter volunteer groomer decided to shave her rather than comb her out. The good thing is, she'll be nice and cool for summer!
Sarah is everything you dream of. She is very mellow and easy going, housebroken, knows commands, and is perfect with every other dog. She's so perfect, we have no idea how she ended up in a shelter. No matter, we are so happy she is with us.
Since Sarah has been in her foster home, she had not had one potty accident! In fact she learned to use the doggie door the first day! She is so smart. She knows to use her own bed and she is completely non-destructive in the house - even when her foster mom and dad are not home.
Sarah will do beautifully as an only dog or with a canine companion. If you work, she will be fine left alone.
Even though she is calm and mellow, she loves her walks and getting out and about with her wiggly little frame. She is wonderful on the leash and stays right with you. Sarah doesn't pull at all. Even a child could walk her.
We have not heard Sarah bark yet!
Sarah is really a perfect dog. She has a beautiful face and will be the envy of all as her luxurious golden coat and feathers continue to grow back in!
Meet Coleman! This absolutely delicious 6-year-old Labrador Retriever is about as good as they come. Coleman is a jet black English (or Bench Bred) Labrador Retriever. He is about 6 years old and is everything we love about our breed.
Coleman is beautiful. His coat glistens and is thick and healthy. He has the perfect chunky otter tail and big blocky head as well as an overall nice comformation. He also has the gentle, sweet facial expressions Labrador owners cherish. He's a good looking boy.
Colemans personality is 100% Labrador as well. True to breed, he loves to retrieve. He'll retrieve a ball or rope toy or frisbee - pretty much anything - and bring it directly back to you, dropping it at your feet. He'll retrieve as long as you'll throw. This makes it very easy to exercise him even though overall he's a pretty easy going mellow boy.
Coleman loves the water - again 100% Labrador! He'd love to go to dog beach with you or in the pool for lots of swims. He'd especially enjoy retrieving in the water so break out the bumpers and get ready for fun! His foster mom fills up the baby pool for Coleman and he is beside himself with joy. What a darling kid.
Coleman is great with other dogs and is doing nicely with the 2 year old Labrador male he is fostered with. He would do nicely with a friendly canine companion or may be a nice one and only treasure. He loves his people very much. His foster has her elderly grandmother in the home and Coleman is wonderful with her. He will drop his tennis ball in her lap. We think he would do nicely with children, although we prefer young ones to be over the age of 6.
Coleman is wonderful on leash. He does not pull at all - not one big. He will be easy for even a child to walk (provide of course they are with parents). We do not advocate children walking dogs unsupervised. Coleman will be a nice walking buddy or even a slower cruising buddy. Either way, he's happy to travel!
We have yet to hear Coleman bark. He likely would bark if truly needed (intruder, etc.) but he is not by nature a barker.
Coleman travels beautifully in the car. He likes a car ride and is a very good boy. Weather permitting, he'd love to "help" you run errands. Please no super hot cars though.
Coleman is not cat tested so no kitties for this doll baby.
This fella is an all around wonderful example of the Labrador Retriever and will be a wonderful best friend or family dog. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Coleman is ready to live with you!
Meet Luna, a truly creamy, dreamy, white delight! Luna is a 2 year old purebred AKC-registered Labrador Retriever female. This is a beautiful and darling girl who will melt your heart.
Luna is a beautiful purebred who is on the petite side. She is a wonderful size which some people especially like.
You may be wondering how we ended up with such a gorgeous girl. Well sadly Luna's owners are divorcing and neither will be residing where a dog is permitted. They are both devasted at losing this sweetheart and we can see why. It's easy to see that she has been very well loved and treasured.
Luna is just a puppy at only 2 years. She will need a tad more training, but currently she knows her commands so well! Luna does "high-5", "sit", "stay", "come" and more. And she loves to learn and wants to please. We think she would learn tricks very well.
Luna is just a bundle of love and will jump up on her adored human although softly as she is very light on her feet. She is already learning that this is not acceptable in her foster home. Luna is also very food motivated and so no tasty morsels should be left out on the counter top as with all food happy labbys! So here is where her puppy age still shows and where her continued puppy training comes into play.
People forget that Labs, unlike other breeds of dog, are puppies for a full 2 years. They are not really adults until they are closer to 3 years of age.
Luna was always an indoor beloved dog and is 100% housebroken.
Luna loves other dogs bit and small. She loves the older Labs she is fostered with but also loves little dogs, young dogs, pretty much any dog is Luna's friend. So if you have a little dog who enjoys play, Luna may be a great fit!
Luna does great with cats too! She previously lived with a cat and is a good choice for homes with kitties.
This medium energy Labrador loves the water and the beach. She would love dog park and dog beach! She has plenty of energy and happily fetches a tennis ball usually dropping it at your feet for more but when you put the ball away she will settle right down. She also loves her toys and a good chew on a nylabone which keeps her busy and contented. Luna adores vigorous walks and hikes and needs a healthy dose of exercise each day as do all young labby pups. She pulls a bit on a leash but with a bit of consistent training she will know her place. This girl is very intelligent and corrects easily.
Although Luna gets along great with her older foster brothers, she would be so happy to have a home with another young dog to romp with. This lover girl would not do her best in a home where she is left alone with no company. Luna will need a home with an active family who has the patience for a puppy and who wants a lot of love.
Luna will come to her new owner with her AKC paperwork. She is spayed, microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and clean and shiny!
Meet Blush - The prettiest young Labrador! What a beautiful girl! Blush is a purebred petite girl with a lovely smile and a wonderful temperament!
Blush is a Dudley yellow purebred female Labrador of 4 years. A Dudley Labrador is uncommon and we just love her coloring! A Dudley Labrador is a purebred who has two genes for chocolate. This is why she has liver (or chocolate) pigment but still has a gorgeous yellow coat. You can see the chocolate coloring in her eye rims and nose. This is a genetic trait that is very uncommon and affects only the yellow Labrador retrievers. We think it makes her especially gorgeous! What a beauty!
Blush has nice conformation and a pretty face. We lover her blocky head and darling smile! Her wagging otter tail tops it off making her downright labra-dorable!
Blush came to us from a high kill shelter where she came in as a stray, yet no family ever came for her. We met Blush and we knew she needed to come home with us. She is a darling girl, and at about 60 pounds, we love her nice smaller size.
This cutie is a medium energy girl who would love daily exercise and activities such as a hike, jog, playtime in the yard, and more. She does pull on leash, especially when she sees a teasing squirrel, so she is best walked with a training collar or gentle leader until she gets the hang of walking with her person.
Blush could use a brush up on some of her training, so some fun reminders of her basic commands like sit, down and stay would be great.
Blush is untested around cats so no homes with kitties for her.
She enjoys sleeping on her doggie bed and also does well in her crate. She is a little timid in the car - perhaps the car is very new to her - but she will easily get comfortable the more she rides in the car and finds that it takes her fun places like the park.
Blush is super sweet and loving and will give you kisses and snuggles and and reward her new family with tons of love! Blush is a classic love bug!
Blush is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations.
Meet Dallas, an adorable, purebred 8 year old Golden Retriever. This beautiful male is nicely bred with thick feathers and a sweet expression. He's just a wonderful easy going, typical Golden who loves everyone!
Dallas came to us when his family dumped him and another dog at a shelter because they "didn't want them anymore". We became aware of him and couldn't act quickly enough to get him to us safely. Boy are we glad we did. This guy is just so fabulous.
When we first got his boy out of the shelter we already knew he was a prize. He was already so friendly, wiggly and happy and was the best boy in the car. He did great at his initial vet visit and was perfect for his bath, grooming and ear cleaning. Everyone commented on how great he was.
Dallas is an exceptional, well behaved, and loving boy. He is calm but a lot of fun and has an infectious sparklely charm. He loves attention and being adored, pet, and snuggled by his humans but he equally loves all of the other dogs he meets too. He is wonderful in the house, non-destructive, potty trained and using the doggie door. He is really such a good boy and will make a family so happy.
Dallas is great with other dogs and shares toys, beds, and is not food or toy posessive. We think Dallas would do with another dog that is a wonderful match as a companion with him.
Dallas is very good on the leash and passes other dogs nicely, knows some commands, and is eager to please his people. He is really a pleasure to walk. Not to mention all your neighbors will comment on his adorable good looks!
Dallas likes to find a bed and snuggle down - especially with a nylabone to chew. He also likes to search for lizzards and chase them around the yard having great fun! He gets on with everyone and just loves life.
Dallas is bathed and groomed and looks gorgeous. He's all clean and shiney for his new furever home.
Dallas has been fully vetted with a clean bill of health. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped and he is ready to come home with you!
Dallas has not been tested with cats so no kitties for Dallas at this time. We think that since he chases lizards, he might chase kitties too.
This fellow is very special. He will light up your life and steel your heart. He's a lovely Golden with so much to give. Will he be yours?
Oh what a hunk! Meet Nixon - a super mellow, low-to-medium energy, gorgeous purebred English Labrador of 9 years. He is a snuggly, loving, sweet, bear cub with big brown furry bear paws.
Nixon is one handsome boy! He has a very nice blocky head, stocky wide body and lush otter tail as typical to the English Lab. He get compliments everywhere he goes on his amazing good looks and then he makes cute faces sealing thd deal.
Nixon came to us when his owners fell on hard times and found themselves needing to find a new home for their best buddy Lab. Nixon was well loved his entire life and it shows. Luckily we were there to help usher this beautiful boy to his new forever home. We promised we would do only our very best for him.
Nixon is a very easy going boy. He is completely housebroken with good house manners. He not a barker and doesn’t really bark at anything or anyone, so he's not much of a watchdog. He's more of a love dog. :-)
Nixon has already found his favorite chair / doggie bed in his foster home and settled right in. He even discovered the doggie door in the first hour at his foster home so he's enjoying taking himself out as needed. He'll do great in a home with a dog door.
Nixon is fabulous with all other dogs - both big and small. He is currently fostered with a Labrador and a smaller dog doing great with both. And when we first met him, he did great with dogs he met that day as well. In fact, Nixon is even great with cats! He previously lived with a cat and the two were best friends, in fact Nixon liked to lick his former kitty's ears and face. Nixon is currently fostered with a cat and is proving to be fabulous with him too! He sleeps soundly through the night on and off his doggy bed in his foster mom's bedroom.
Nixon is very well mannered and an obedient boy too. He knows his commands and really wants to please his person. He can pull on leash though, so is best walked with a pinch collar. He is a low to medium energy boy who will do well with a couple shorts walks each day and of course lots of love and pets from his family!
Nixon would do great with kids, but he is a large and strong boy, so could easily knock over a small child without intending too. So caution should be taken as with all wiggly Labbies!
Nixon is just lovely all around! He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Koda - a scruptious purebred Labrador Retriever puppy who who is completely adorable! This 6-month old baby boy is a black male with a shiny coat and burnt sugar eyes. He's still a little guy at 55 pounds and will likely grow to be the breed standard 80 pounds at adulthood.
Koda came to us from a family who bought him from a breeder. He was very well loved and cared for, but recently his family found they were unable to keep him. Luckily, we were able to take in Koda right away. And we are committed to finding him the best forever home.
Koda is very, very sweet. He is a wiggle-butt Labrador who loves everyone he meets! In fact, he will jump up on you with excitement - very typical of young lab pups. He will just need to learn to greet people with all four paws on the ground before he gets larger and jumping up isn't as cute. Koda takes his treats gently and is food motivated. This will make it easy to train him. He is already learning his basic commands. You should see him sit! Good boy!
His new owners should do a puppy obedience class so he can continue to learn all the basics. Not only that, Lab puppies always pull on the leash, so this little guy will need nice treat based leash training as well. After all, he's a puppy!
Koda is fabulous with other dogs and very playful. He enjoys dog park, doggie friends and romping around.
Lab puppies his age all require lots of exercise and attention. He would love to play fetch, be a jogging partner, go to dog park or even enjoy a hike with you every day! He will also need lots of fun chew toys like Kongs, Nylabones and more. Remember, all lab puppies are chewers and he may chew the wrong thing, so he will need redirection to his own chew toys.
While Koda will do well with children, we will only consider homes with kids over age 8 for him. Families with little toddlers simply do not have the time to dedicate to active puppies who need so much attention. His new family will need the time and dedication to provide the training and exercise all young pups need.
Koda is already housebroken and crate trained, but keep in mind any dog could have a potty accident in a new home until they learn their new family's potty routine. His new family would do well to continue using a crate to keep him safe when they are away and to reinforce good potty behavior. No little puppy should be left to roam the house when no one is home.
This darling lab puppy has superior temperament and will grow up to be a wonderful dog who is great with everyone and all dogs! He loves to roll over for belly rubs and give kisses to everyone he meets.
Koda is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Margo, a beautiful, AKC registered purebred Labrador. She is 8 years old, and is perfect in every way.
Margo is a very light snowy cream color and has a nice thick Labby coat. She has beautiful comformation, an a sweet expression. Margo is such a pretty Labrador that she will easily be the talk of the neighborhood.
This gorgeous girl came to us from a situation where her owner could no longer keep her. The owner wanted to ensure that Margo would get a home where she would be loved and taken care of like the treasure she is.
Margo is a gentle lamb. She's about as easy as they come. She enjoys a nylabone here and there and loves to be where you are. She is extremely calm and would be great to go to work with you if you wanted. She is that well behaved.
Margo is excellent with all other dogs. She has not been formally cat tested so we will not place her with cats at this time. She's what we call a bombproof dog. If you wanted to you could make her a therapy dog easily. We think she would cheer a lot of people up with her darling smile and wiggly body.
Margo sleeps through the night on her bed and is not destructive in the house. She wants to make you happy.
Margo is a velcro dog. She wants to be where you are all the time. She will do best in a home with another dog and where someone is around much of the time.
Margo will be great with kids but we still prefer to place her in a home without toddlers.She has never lived with little tots and we don't want her to be poked and prodded by innocent little humans.
This sweety has a tiny bit of arthritis in her hind end. She should be on glucosamine supplements and eventually a vet-approved NSAID to help with standard arthritis inflammation. It's also important to keep her at a good weight and not let her get chubby.
Margo is nice and shiney clean having been bathed and groomed. She has had a teeth cleaning as well. Margo is in good health and has been spayed, and updated on vaccinations.
This girl is a real find. She is a beautiful Labrador with show conformation and has A-temperament to boot. Dogs like Margo don't come around too often so we will be extremely picky about where she goes.
Meet Moose, a darling 4 year old purebread Chocolate Labrador. This beautiful deep dark chocolate delight is a gorgeous boy with a beautiful head and shiney coat. He's handsome for sure but his personality is the real winner.
Moose comes to us from a very loving home where he was treasured as a true companion. Now it's our job to see that his future home is the very best. Moose loves his walks and gets a good hour walk every morning - rain or shine. His new owner will need to commit to the exact same thing.
In addition to his walks, he often goes to dog park in the afternoon where he gets along great with all other dogs. Mostly he wanders around doing his own thing and sometimes he finds a dog that he wants to wrestle and play with. Moose is a calm, easy going boy for sure, but he loves to get out and about.
Naturally this purebred Labrador especially enjoys the water. Lakes, swimming pools the ocean...if its water he wants to be in it! He also loves being toweled off just as much as he does swimming! His new owner should plan on lots of water trips to dog beach if they don't have a pool and they should be someone who will provide outings regularly as this is what Moose loves.
Moose won't always go after a tennis ball. He prefers Jolly Balls and soccer balls for fun. He also like frisbees. Moose says not to bother with those expensive toys! He quite happy with empty water bottles which he loves to flatten outand crunch. No worries though as he never eats the plastic. Moose is great off and on leash, but will chase a rabbit, squirrel or cat if he sees one. Needless to say, no kitties for Moose and safe leash practices must be employed when appropriate.
Moose - like some Labs - is allergic to Rosemary and will have seizures if he eats it. He won't eat it off bushes, but if it's in his food, he can't help to consume it obviously. This allergy is common in Labs although many don't realize this since many foods don't it. Unfortunately, more foods are adding rosemary and it's causing problems for dogs. Moose is currently fed Cannidae Wild Boar which he does beautifully on. It does not contain rosemary. He should remain on this food but new owners should keep tabs to be sure they don't add rosemary going forward. Dog foods often change their ingredients. This also goes for treats!!!! Don't let anyone give him their treats and don't use treats you don't review closely for rosemary.
Moose also likes bully sticks and frozen marrow bones to chew on. Who doesn't? Yummy! Moose doesn’t need to be near you all the time, but he likes to be close. He loves affection and likes to lay next to you or on you on the couch but doesn't demand constant snuggling.
He'll do best in a home where there is someone around much of the time or where he could go to work with his human. He is definitely well behaved enought to go to work as he is calm and good with all dogs and humans. Moose really likes kids. He'll do well with another friendly canine or without and with older children but no cats please!
This gorgeous doll is housebroken and knows basic commands. He is neutered, chipped and up to date on his vaccines. Moose is pretty perfect. He’s a very loyal, happy boy and he’s looking for the best home. Will it be yours?
Meet Harvey, the most delicious 6-7 year old creamy white purebred English Labrador. This boy is a therapy-quality marshmallow cream puff with the most gentle, sweet, and darling personality one could imagine. Not only that, he is absolutely gorgeous.
Harvey was thrown out like trash when his owner didn't want him anymore. True to his breed though, Harvey is so forgiving and shows absolutely no signs of acting mistreated or abused.
Harvey came to us with horrible upper respiratory infection and a limp due to being overweight. X-rays revealed an old cruciate injury that was never treated and has long since healed leaving a bit of arthritis. This would not be an issue if he weren't overweight, so Harvey was promptly put on a high quality diet. We are so happy to say he is already on his way having lost a lot already!!! As he loses, he walks better and better! In fact, Harvey is already walking over 1/8 mile on walks. This fella is going to be just fine now.
Harvey would appreciate a home with carpet or throw rugs around to keep him from slipping as he loses weight and gets more agile. Cheap, temporary matts would work too. This won't take too long as he loves his walks so losing extra chunck will be easy. For now Harvey is on a $4 per month anti-inflammatory to help inflammation and pain as he shapes up. Harvey is going to be just fine!!!
Harvey is wonderful with all other dogs and although not cat tested, we have no worries of him with kitties. He's so gentle. He does great with all dogs and would like a home with another friendly canine companion or where his owners are home most of the time.
Harvey loves his nylabones and will lay on his bed and chew peacefully. He's great about sharing though and welcomes other dogs onto his bed or to share his toys. He is also not food possessive. He is housebroken and will use the doggie door to let himself outside to potty.
This beautifully bread English Labrador is young and will make a wonderful physical comeback in no time.
Harvey is clean and shiny and nicely groomed. He's been fully vetted and is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.
If you feel that your home is perfect for this nice 6-year old English Labrador, please let us know.
Meet Connie, the sweetest Golden Retriever girl around. When we tell you she's good as gold, believe it!
Connie is a 5 year old darling purebred Golden with a gorgeous coat and pretty feathers. She is a perfectly size female at 60 lbs making her a petite treat. Connie has nice comformation and an even better temperament. She is a special gal.
Connie comes to us from a neglectful situation where she was ignored and never permitting in the home. This is a sin as Golden Retriever are extremely affection dogs who need to be with their people. Leaving a Golden in a yard is just aweful. Connie was dirty when we got her but look at her now! Fully groomed she looks as lovely as she really is!
Although she was mostly ignored, she shows no sign of it after a few days of love in her foster home. She is fostered with 5 other Labbies and gets on with all of them. In fact she loves her foster sibling and the feeling is mutual. She will do perfectly with another canine companion and will be a wonderful girl to take to dog beach this summer.
Connie knows how to sit, lay down, and stay. You'll need to teach more if you like and it would be easy as she is so eager to please and be close. Connie pulls on leash a bit given she has probably never been taken for a walk until she joined our Indi Lab family. She is improving on this and will be no trouble to walk with her new owners. After all she is a little thing. She loves her walks and she loves attention. She's even good in the car.
Connie is a wiggle but and so adorable. She is not food or toy possessive and she is not a big food hound either like most retrievers and Labs. Connie will counter surf occassionally out of curiousity but doesn't steel anything - so far anyway. Her new owners will want to keep goodies out of reach and put away.
Connie seams to like the pool at her foster parents home. They have a beautiful pool and connie so far enjoys laying on the steps in the cool water. We think soon she will enjoy going in for a swim too. She's never seen a pool before.
Connie uses the doggie door to go outside to potty. A doggie door always works well for dogs formerly not permitted in the house. Once they see the other dogs use it, they use it too. Her new owners will want to take her out frequently if they don't have a doggie door until they see how she lets them know it's time.
Connie has been beautiful groomed, ears cleaned, nails trimmed and combed out. She has been spayed and is up to date on her vaccines.
Connie is truly a wonderful gem and who ever is lucky enough to adopt her will find that she is the love of their lives.
Lilly and Belle adopted!
Introducing Lilly and Belle, the two sweetest, most calm, purebred Labrador Retriever girls you’ll ever meet.
These angels are beautiful littermate sisters. They are 5 year old and are a perfect pair of bonded sweet hearts. Lilly and Belle are Fox Red Labradors and are just gorgeous. They have been together their entire lives.
Although the girls are bonded sisters, they love other dogs and would love to either be added to your existing dog or to be the only two. Either way for them as they truly love being with other dogs and they are truly as easy as can be.
Given their outstanding temperaments and calm personalities, somehow these sweet, mellow Labradors were forced to live as outside dogs in the desert their entire lives. They were never permitted in the house, and never got much human affection. They had only each other for company. How sad!
But true to their Labrador nature, they are still perfect in the house and absolutely adore all people and dogs. They are testiment to our breed and show why the Labrador Retriever is so beloved.
Their family gave them up when they realized they were having another baby and said they could no longer afford to keep them. Although this seems sad, it was actually the day these beautiful girls won the Labby lottery as they are now with us and their future will be truly blessed.
Lilly and Belle girls have been thriving in their foster home where they get tons of love and affection. They deserve a home where they will not be left outside for long hours and where they will be treasured as family members. They are very gentle and sweet and just want to be loved by their people. They still need reassurance that they will not be left outside when they go out with the other dogs. But they are quickly learning that outside is fun because they come inside too.
Amazingly the girls were 100% potty trained immediately and use the doggie door to take care of business. They have been trustworthy and non-destructive inside the house since their first day. The girls are wonderful about sharing toys, space and are not food possessive nor food-aggressive. hey are very friendly and sweet with the dogs they are fostered with and love being with them while remaining affectionate and loving with each other on a constant basis. The girls are never very far away from each other.
Lilly and Belle are learning to play and will chase the ball for short periods of time. We think they never had toys but in short order will learn to enjoy them. They are learning to walk on a leash and are doing well, but will still need a little more leash training. That said, they are easy to walk and pass other dogs beautifully.
Lilly is bread standard in size, while her sister Belle is more petite.
They have not been cat or child tested (although we are certain they will be lovely with children). We will not be placing the girls with kitties just now, nor little children even though we think they will be gentle and wonderful with kids. Both girls have been spayed and are up to date with vaccinations. They are groomed and their ears are cleaned and nails trimmed.
Lilly and Belle are ready for a very special home that will give them the love they deserve. If you were waiting for a loving pair of purebred Labradors, this is your chance!
Who likes smiling dogs? We do! Meet Frank, the happiest Golden Retriever on earth. He wiggles, he smiles, he dances, and he cuddles but most important, he's cute. Very, very, very cute!
Frank is a stunningly gorgeous large purebred Golden Retriever. He's 5-6 years of age, and he is 90 lovable pounds. He has a delicious golden coat and very nice comformation. The best thing about Frank is his temperament though. He is a true to breed retrieving love bug.
Frank comes to us from a fairly neglectful situation where he lived outside with little to no attention and where he was never taught much of anything. It is amazing that this fella arrived with absolutely no issues. All he wants is love and boy it's easy to give him. Look at that face!
Frank is an exhuberant, medium energy Golden. He was bred and came to us intact. So he arrived with a bit of testoterone coupled with a desire to snuggle with all the female fosters in his foster home. A neuter is to the rescue and Frank will settle easily now. His former life taught him virtually nothing about walking on a leash so he will pull. His new owners will need to work with him on his leash skills and incorporate a pinch collar to achieve the best results.
Frank listens to commands and wants to please his person. He settles down very nicely after a bit of exercise and he is very obedient. He will be easy to train but due to his size and wiggliness, his new ower should plan on some fun sessions and provide lots of patience. Frank is a very good boy.
Frank is not food nor toy possessive. He is also not food motivated. He is really just motivated by love.
Frank is not much of a water dog either. He is not super interested in the pool. He may be though down the line.
Frank loves other dogs. He would love to be in a home with another dog or two and will really enjoy dog park or dog beach. He loves doggie friends.
We don't know how Frank would do with cats so absolutely no kitty homes at this time.
Frank must go to a home without small children. His size and wiggliness may knock toddlers down and cause parents to worry. Plus this angel deserves some real attention after being ignored for so long.
Franks is neutered and up to date on vaccines. All that's needed now is a home that is simply amazing.
Now who will win the golden ticket?
Spring Daisy adopted!
Meet Spring's delightful darling Spring Daisy! Spring Daisy is a stunningly gorgeous purebred chocolate Labrador Retriever with burnt sugar eyes, a thick beautiful head, and deep and dark coat, and an overall nice conformation. She is really quite something!
Spring Daisy is 4 years old and have the most lovely personality. She is everything we love in a Labrador Retriever. She's great with other dogs, loves to play with Labby friends, and of course is amazing with people.
True to her breed, this angel wants nothing more than to make you happy and spend as much time wiggling as she can. That tail sure can wag!
Spring Daisy came to us from a loving home where she was very well cared for. Her owners did everything right. Sadly they are in a situation where they cannot keep Daisy any longer and they wanted her to only get the very best fur-ever home. That's where we come in. We assured her owners we would do everything in our power to see to it that Daisy gets an amazing home that will treasure her and give her all the love she deserves.
Spring Daisy is housebroken, non-destructive and has a calm temperament. She is a young girl at only 4 years and needs her daily playtime and exercise. She has lived her life with another canine companion so unless you work from home or are retired or around most of the time, we would like to see Daisy go to a home with another friendly canine companion within a couple of years of her age. She likes a play partner and buddy.
Daisy knows hot to sit, come, stay and lay down. She is a great candidate for continued training. She passes other dogs on leash very nicely and walks pretty well too. She also is a good girl on car rides.
Daisy's great temperament and personality mean she will be wonderful to take to dog beach or on other outings where their are other dogs. She's a very mild mannered, fun buddy who gets attention where ever she goes and rightfully so!
Spring Daisy likes to chase rabbits when they show up so we feel certain she will not do well with kitties. We will not consider homes with cats at this time.
She is gentle and sweet and likely will be great with kids. However no toddlers for Daisy as she may knock a toddler over without meaning to.
Daisy will have many suiters on her dance card so please understand we will not be responding to queries from families who have not had an in home interview and been approved to adopt. Also understand that we do have waiting applicants as as such they will be considered first. Especially those we feel will be an outstanding fit for Daisy's happiness and care.
Spring Daisy is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. All that is needed now is a wonderful home.
Meet Cassini, a darling AKC registered purebred yellow female Labrador Retriever who is simply delicious in every way.
Cassini is a gorgeous light cream Labrador with soulful eyes and a gorgeous coat. This 7 year old female is petite at only 60 pounds and loves to wiggle!
Cassini came to us when her owners schedules changed and demanded long hours away from home. Her family realized the long hours that were now required of them at work left her with very little attention. Since Cassini was craving human interaction, her owners felt she would be much happier with a family who wasn't gone all the time.
She loves humans and loves to snuggle, she loves her pets and will lay her head in your lap. Her sweet eyes will melt your heart. She is pure sweetness. She will be by your side as much as you desire - following you everywhere like a typical Labrador. She's as velcro as she is special. And to top it all off, she loves to carry toys around in her mouth making her cutness utterly irresistable.
Although Cassini loves her humans as much as her canines, she can be shy around some men at first. She warns up quickly though.
Cassini is wonderful with other dogs. She lived with another dog prior and she will do her best in a home with another sweet male or female canine. She is a submissive and sweet girl and extremely calm. We do not want Cassini left alone for hours with out another friendly dog. So if you work a lot and don't have another dog, please don't inquire about Cassini.
She loves her walks and being out and about. She will trott along with a smile on her face. She is nothing but sunshine. Cassine is wonderful at walking with you. Her lleash manners are excellent and she passes all other dogs with calm and friendly ease. She will be the hit of the neighborhood!
Cassini also knows her commands. What's more, in true Labrador fashion, Cassine only wants to please you. Her whold life is about being pure love to her person and bringing joy to all she meets. This one is special.
Cassini is in great health and just gorgeous. She is a medium energy snuggler who will brighten your life in every way.
Cassini is fostered in a home with 3 other Labradors and fits right in. She doesn't make waves and all the dogs love her. She even does wonderfully with the more dominant male in the home! She is just a very good girl.
Cassini has not been tested with cats so no kitty homes for her.
If you are looking for a friendly, easy going, very sweet Labrador, this girl may be for you - especially if you love giving belly rubs as Cassini loves to roll over for lots of belly rubs!
Cassini is spayed and up to date on vaccinations.
Meet Chai - a darling smaller sized female lab of only 1 year old. Chai is a purebred AKC chocolate Labrador of only 50 pounds and will remain on the smaller side, likely only getting to 65 pounds when full grown.
Chai came to us when she was hit by a car and her owners could not afford the surgery she needed to repair a broken leg. Thankfully the family contacted us and we stepped in to help - immediately getting her to our best orthopedic vet! She has now had her leg surgically repaired and is healing very well. She will need another 2 weeks of limited activity before she can enjoy all off leash activities though.
Chai is such a sweet girl - she loves all people including kids! In fact she lived in a home with young children before coming to us and she did great with them. She is also great around other dogs and is a playful young girl. Chai is not tested around cats, so no homes with kitties for her.
Chai is completely housebroken and sleeps soundly through the night on her dog bed. She even uses the doggie door in her Foster home. She is also crate trained and really enjoys her crate. She would do well with a doggie companion or as your one and only as long as you are not gone all day at work.
As a puppy at only 1 year old, Chai needs lots of chew toys and exercise. She may still select the wrong thing to chew if left all alone, so will need to be watched - as most Labrador puppies. She loves her nylabones and other fun doggie toys. She is an active girl who would love hikes, dog park, perhaps a jog with her owner. But all running and jumping will need to wait another 2-4 weeks for this girl, to ensure her healing is 100%.
She is doing very well with her training in her Foster home. She knows sit and has learned not to run out the front door when opened. She is also learning not to jump up at people when excited. She is still learning stay and other commands, so she would love some additional training. She does pull on leash, so is best walked with a training collar.
Chai loves to give kisses to every person she meets. She is a happy, sweet girl who can't wait to be completely healed so she can enjoy all the fun physical activities like hiking, swimming and more!
Chai is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Sessy - a petite yellow purebred female Labrador of 3 years. This girl is a light yellow color and a smaller sized Labrador at just 60 pounds.
Sassy has nice conformation and a pretty face. Her wagging otter tail tops it off making her downright labra-dorable!
Sessy came to us when her family found themselves having to work longer hours meaning Sessy and her other canine companion were alone much of the time and unhappy. They felt they could no longer give their dogs the attention they deserved and wanted much better for them. Naturally, we were delighted to help sweet Sessy find a new forever home.
Sessy is great with all other dogs she meets. She loves to play and will do great with another playful canine companion. Sessy would be happiest in a home with another dog since she has been with another canine buddy all of her life until now. Sassy would like a companion dog who is close to her age and likes to play.What is so nice about this sweetie is that she is playful when the other dog wants to play but is also respectful of older dogs who just prefer companionship.
Sassy is currently fostered with a male and female Lab and they all get along great. She really enjoys the canine company in her foster home.
Sassy is completely housebroken, using the doggie door to let herself out to potty. She is not destructive when left alone with her Labby friends.
Sassy is untested around cats so no homes with kitties for her.
She is a medium energy dog who loves her daily exercise of a walk, trip to the dog park or playing fetch in the yard, then she settles right down for the day. And at bedtime she snuggles in and sleeps soundly through the night.
Sessy has not had much training walking on leash and can pull. Her new owner will need to work with her not to pull and to walk on heel. She is motivated to please so this should be an easy training exercise :).
She is sweet as can be - loves all people and other dogs. She will give you kisses and snuggles and and reward her new family with tons of love! Sassy is a classic love bug!
Sessy is spayed and up to date on vaccinations.
Roxy 7 adopted!
Meet beautiful Roxy. Roxy is a 3 year old pure bred Labrador Retriever who is absolutely stunning!
This young labby has a shiny coat and the sweetest dark eyes. She is a very happy girl that loves to please her people. She is still a puppy and absolutely adorable.
Roxy came to us when her family hit financial hard times and had to move into an RV. They wanted Roxy to have a better life where she could enjoy a yard and be with a family that could afford to care for her. Roxy came from a home where she was truly loved.
Roxy is pretty much perfect. She is a calmer, medium energy young Labrador who plays nicely with other dogs, but she is also very mellow and loves to cuddle with her humans. She loves to kiss and be touched and she is very gentle. She still has sweet puppy breath and did I mention she loves to kiss?
Roxy truly has amazing temperament and learns quickly. She genuinely wants to please her person and is a true Labrador Retriever! This young girl is great with other dogs and is quite playful. She likes to chase the ball and will drop it at your feet. She knows basic commands, but pulls a little on the leash at first settling in quickly. She also rides well in the car.
Roxy is not food obsessed, but she does like treats (who doesn't?). This is great for training. She knows how to use the doggy door and she is potty trained. Roxy is still like a puppy so she enjoys chewing on Nylabones. She has not been tested with a pool, but she does seem curious. If her new family has a pool, she will need to be properly introduced to it. And like all Labs, she will likely love it!
Roxy has not been cat or child tested. We think she would do best in a home with another playful dog since she was brought up with another canine companion and she loves to play. Older dogs may not be the best fit. Roxy is currently being fostered by a family with dogs and she loves it.
This Labby girl likes to sleep with her humans. She wouldn't mind a home where she can lay with her owners on the couch or snuggle with them occasionally in bed. Roxy is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
This girl has it all, the looks, the temperament and the love. All she needs is the very best fur-ever home! She deserves the best family! Will it be yours?
Meet Bradley! He is a 6 year old purebred yellow English or Bench Bred Labrador male. This boy is a gorgeous guy with a big block head and a nice stocky body.
Bradley has a mellow, fun personality and enjoys playing with people and other dogs. He has a constant smile on his face and a big labby tail wag all the time. He is a perfect size at 83 pounds. He is fit and trim and a healthy boy! What a happy boy he is who adds joy to any home and any person he meets.
Bradley is a gentle boy and would be a great choice for a family with kids. He even gravitates towards young people and immediately drops to the ground for a belly rub from anyone he meets - its adorable! He has a handsome but adorably cute face all at the same time. And sweet eyes, with gorgeous dark eyeliner as well.
Bradley came to us from a local high kill shelter. We will never understand how he ended up there as he is one of the best labs we have ever met.
He has good house manners, is perfectly housebroken and sleeps soundly through the night on his doggy bed too. He has perfectly gentle food manners and is not food obsessed like most labs and eats side by side with his foster lab brother with ease. He also takes treats gently from his humans - what a good boy!
Bradley is a medium energy boy. He can pull a bit on leash, so is best walked with a pinch collar, but he loves his walks and literally dances when he sees the leash come out. He would love a couple nice walks a day and could even join you on a hike too.
Bradley is great with all other dogs. He is currently fostered with an older male Lab and the two get along beautifully. In fact, we think Bradley would prefer a home with another dog for company.
Bradley is healthy, neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped, and now ready for his forever home!
Meet Nantucket, or Tucker as we like to call him. This sweet, perfect Labrador Retriever was dumped in a high kill shelter and sat there for weeks waiting for someone to come. We someone did come and Nantucket is truly a rescue.
This fella is a light yellow/cream Labrador of about 9 years old. He has the sweetest puppy like face - it's hard not to fall in love with him!
Don't let his age fool you though. He loves his walks and walks at a very good clip but does best on shorter, flat surface walks. He doesn't do well on difficult, hilly hikes or long distances. He's an easy going fella.
Tucker came to us from a high kill shelter where all others had given up on him and finally he was due to be euthanized. He had a doggie cold, was depressed, stiff from sleeping on concrete, extremely filthy and needed immediate significant medical attention.
This angel was in our hearts within seconds and so he was taken from that horrible situation and brough lovingly to safety in a coordination effort of several volunteers who were so moved to see this gorgous specimen of our breed in such a precarious situation. Everyone wanted to help Tucker!
When we first rescued Tucker, we got him a much needed bath so he could feel clean and comfortable. We gave him a warm soft bed and we made certain to get him to our vet immediately. It was obvious that he was already a typical lab with his wiggles, smile and immediate trust of everyone. What a heart.
We got him on antibiotics right away and then our vet did bloodwork and the removal of two large (thankfully) benign growths. He was also neutered and had his teeth deep clearned. Now he is as shiny as a new penny and just as healthy with a clean bill of health!
Tucker is one of the sweetest boys ever! He gets along well with the 3 male labs he is fostered with and fits right in with the pack. He is completely housebroken and sleeps soundly through the night. He's a plug and play angel who will ease into your heart and home bringing so much zen and love you will truly be blessed.
Tucker walks very well on leash and enjoys his walks. He goes at a good clip and would be an excellent walking buddy. He would adore a home where he would get one or two walks a day and can then lounge around, nap, and cuddle with you for the remainder.
Tucker is a medium to low mellow boy. He's perfect for play and fun and great in a home situation where he is such a good boy.
Tucker loves his soft stuffed doggie toys and will carry them around with him often. There is really nothing more adorable than a darling white Labrador carrying their teddy around. It will melt your heart. Yes. It's that cute.
We think Tuck will be happiest in a home with another dog, but if you are home a lot, he would do fine as your one and only. He is not destructive when left, but we think this boy deserves doggie or human company and don't want to see him in a home where he is left for long hours all by himself.
Tucker has not been tested around cats, so no kitties for him in his new home.
Milo 3 adopted!
Meet Milo a delicious one year old purebred Labrador Retriever who is as sweet as he is adorable. And boy is he adorable!
Milo is a darling puppy at just a year or slightly less. Labradors are puppies for 2 full years and their behavior reflects that. They love to play and chew toys, and take naps and do all manner of puppy things. They also continue to grow until they reach adulthood at 2 years. Milo is medium energy and settles beautifully after his play time and exercise. He is also an excellent napper. Naps are good.
Milo is a real lover. He wants nothing more than to adored by his people and be best friends with the other dogs he is fostering with. He especially loves playing with his foster sister Rachel and his foster brother Harley. Boy is playing fun!
Milo came to us from a situation of utter neglect. He was left alone in a yard all day and isolated. He became so bored, that he licked his paws constantly to self-sooth and ended up with lick granulomas all over them. He was starved and came to us extremely underweight. Naturally we took care of his wounds and sores and after being fully vetted, vaccinated and neutered, he recovered and has gained much needed weight in his foster home. He will need to continue putting on weight for a little while and this should be easy with good food.
This pup lives in the moment. He's already forgotten his former life and now all he wants is to share the love! After all life is good for a typical Labrador puppy like Milo. Did we mention that he's is a puppy? He loves to play and chew squeaky toys and Nylabones, before settling down nicely to rest. His new owners will want to supply other dogs for play (either at home or dogpark), and lots of chew appropriate toys, Nylabones, and other fun toys. He gets along with every dog he's met and currently lives with five other Labs in his foster home. His new owner should continue socialization. He's potty trained and uses a doggy door. It would be great if his new home had one too!
We recommend that Milo goes a home without small children because of his Labrador size and his playful puppy energy. He does extremely well with other dogs and it would be best if he were placed with another dog with a little less energy but who enjoys play as well.
Milo needs a home that will continue to work with him on his manners and training and do a puppy obedience class. He's smart and learns quickly, but because he is a pup, he has very little training so far. He walks well on a leash and rides beautifully in the car. Like almost every Labrador teenager, Milo likes to put his paws up on the counter to see what is up there. He has not taken anything however, but then again, his foster home is Lab savvy and knows that leaving food on countertops in Labrador homes is a no-no. He is a puppy - a blank canvas - and he is eady to become the best dog. He just needs the guidance and training all puppies require.
He seems interested in the pool, but has not gone in yet. He’s likely enjoy the water like most labs and would love trips to dog beach.
Whoever adopts this sweet boy will be live under a lucky star. He is lovable, sweet and affectionate and, of course, has the classic and beloved Labby temperament that makes this breed the number one breed in the country.
Milo was just neutered and his vaccinations are up to date. He deserves the best home where he will become a treasured member of the family. Will it be yours?
Meet Kala, the sweetest girl. Kala is a darling, black, purebred female Labrador Retriever with a gorgeous face and lovely disposition. She's the epidome of Labrador lovliness! Kala is also a nice smaller sized Lab at only 60 pounds, and in perfect health.
Kala is 6 years old and is a calm, easy going gal in the home, but who also loves to go for walks and play fetch too! She is the perfect mix of fun and easy. Kala came to us when her previous owner could no longer keep her. They had loved her since she was a puppy and found themselves in a position in which they could no longer provide her the life she deserved.
Kala is a very smart girl - she learned to use the doggie door in her foster home within 2 hours! She is completely housebroken and will use the doggie door to go in and out constantly.
True to her retrieving breed, Kala loves to play fetch - she will chase a ball or toy or anything you want to throw for her, it's one of her favorite activities. She would love a home where she has doggie toys to play with someone who will play fetch with her as well.
Kala is fostered with other dogs both big and small and is fabulous with all of them - she would do well with a doggie companion, or as your one and only. Kala mostly loves her people and wants to be with her person as much as possible. She would adore a home where her people are home a lot or where she can go to work with you. She nustles her head up next to you for pets and head rubs - her favorite!
Kala is also fostered with a kitty and she mostly just ignores her, although she has given chase a few times. We don't believe Kala would ever harm a cat, so if you have a cat, Kala could be a good choice for you.
Kala is spayed and up to date on vaccinations. She is ready for only the very best fur-ever home. Will it be yours?
Li'll Bits adopted!
Meet Li'll Bits, a darling, petite, 2-year old yellow female Labby girl who is just so unbelievably cute and sweet that she will melt your heart!
Li'll Bits is only 45 lbs. She is a perfectly compact Labby with the most easy going sweet personality. She is calm and so deliciously adorable. She just loves to be close and is such a calm and sweet girl.
At only 2 years old, she is a young doll baby who will love her walks and outings, yet she is mellow enough to simply be close and hang out with you while you watch tv or take a nap. She could even go to work with you and be a good girl!
This girl loves to be close and snuggle. She is a love bug with such a gentle personality. She loves being cuddled and pet or putting her head into your lap. She will make a perfect companion for most anyone.
This little sweetheart stole our hearts when we met her. Her gentle nature captured us so and we couldn't resist her charms. We feel certain you won't be able to either. She is just lovely.
Li'll Bits is good with other dogs and would be a wonderful companion to another friendly canine. Or she would be a nice one and only too. Her petite size makes her easy to take almost anywhere. She would love to run errands with you!
Li'll is slightly timid and very submissive. She is also underweight and we think was not cared for very well. Despite this, she has such a generous heart. Some good nutritious food, time, love and wonderful care is all she needs to be as happy as we know she can be.
Li'll is wonderful on leash. She doesn't pull one bit and walks right beside you. She will make the perfect walking companion. She listens well and she wants to please. Her young age and loyal personality make her ideal for future training.
Whoever adopts this special girl will be so lucky. What a treasure she is!
We have not cat tested Li'll so no kitties for her at this time. And although we see her as gentle enough for the elderly or the tiniest infant, we feel no young children are right for her at this time as she comes out of her shell and opens up more. This little rose bud is just waiting to blossom and making her the center of attention will be most lovely for her!
Li'll is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. All that's needed now is the very best furever home. Will it be yours?
Robbie 2 adopted!
Meet Robbie, a handsome dark chocolate hunk of Labrador. This boy is a purebred Labrador Retriever of about 4 years old. He has a thick soft coat and big blocky head and is a larger, solid and stunning boy.
This gorgeous treasure of a purebred Lab has a coat that is a tad dull from neglect, living outdoors, and a poor diet. He is being treated for an ear infection and his cut tail will need to heal. It breaks our heart that he has been so neglected!
With his conformation, face, and stunning gate, we feel this pup will look like a show dog in no time after being cared for in his new home.
Robbie is a total snuggly lover boy despite his former lack of care and he shows us he is forgiving, gentle and loving. He is so grateful to be loved.
Robbie came to use from a high kill shelter. Lucky for him our volunteer was there to rescue him as he was getting depressed and needed a safe home, soft clean bed, and humans to care for him.
Robbie is happy wiggly boy. He has the trademark tail that rarely stops wagging and the trademark soggy Labby face which we promise will break your heart. What a love!
Robbie is completely house broken and settles well in the house after his exercise. He's a good boy! He is a Velcro Labbie who wants to be right next to his person. He sleeps soundly through the night.
Robbie is a medium energy boy. He really enjoys playing fetch. He will drop the ball nicely and bring it back as many times as you like. What a great Retriever! Robbie really loves his stuffed doggie toys too. He can often be found with a stuffed bear in his mouth and is too adorable for words carrying his stuffed lobster around. Robbie is very good on leash. He loves his walks and will pull a little right at the beginning of a walk but settles to your pace after the first few blocks. He'd be a nice walking companion for sure. We think he'd look very nice wearing a bandana on his walks.
Robbie knows sit and would be easy to teach other commands as really wants to please his person. This is a dog that wants to learn it all and be your buddy. He's got the temperament we love.
Robbie is good with his foster brother - another male Labrador, but he isn’t a big fan of little yappie dogs. Then again, who can blame him? Robbie would do great as your one and only true love or fine with another friendly easy-going canine - especially a more submissive sweet friend he will know is a best buddy.
Robbie jumps right in the car and is happy to go for a ride. He would love to accompany you on errands and prefers a window seat!
Robbie had a hard time at the shelter. He was lonely, got a cut on his tail, developed a bad ear infection, and was depressed. He's healing and learning what it means to be loved.
He has been neutered and received all his vaccines as well as a microchip.
Meet Maddie, a darling AKC registered female Labrador who is simply delicious in every way.
Maddie is a gorgeous purebred fox red Labrador with soulful eyes and a gorgeous coat. This 6 year old female is petite at only 60 pounds and is calm as the day is long.
This angel came to us when her human dad suddenly passed away leaving her human mom unable to care for Maddie. Maddie has been loved and treasured her whole life and it shows. She loves humans and loves to snuggle. She will be by your side as much as you desire and she will happily sleep in bed with you only if she is invited.
Maddie is wonderful with other dogs. She lived with another dog prior and we think she will do her best in a home with another sweet male or female canine. She is a submissive and sweet girl and extremely calm.
She loves her walks and is wonderful at passing dogs on leash although her leashwork needs a brush up. This will be absolutely no problem given her obedient, mellow temperament especially because Maddie was professionally trained when she was a youngster. She knows her commands and wants to please.
Maddie is in great health and just gorgeous. She is a medium energy snuggler who will brighten your life in every way.
Maddie is fostered in a home with 4 other Labradors and fits right in. She doesn't make waves and all the dogs love her. She even does wonderfully with the more dominant female in the home! She is just a very good girl. She enjoys playing with the other Labs and enjoys their company.
Maddie has not been tested with cats so no kitty homes for Maddie.
If you are looking for a friendly, easy going, very sweet Labrador and you have a home with another sweet dog, Maddie may be for you - especially if you love snuggling and cuddling.
Maddie is an AKC purebred Labrador and will come with her AKC papers.
Maddie is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations and microchiped.
Meet beautiful Lolly, a 6-year old female AKC registered, purebred chocolate Labrador with a delicious satin coat and bright "love me up" eyes!
Lolly came to us from a loving family whose baby developed severe allergies to animals. She was adored and well cared for and it shows. This gorgeous girl deserves a wonderful new family because she is such a delight. What a dream!
Lolly is wonderful with young children so a good choice for any family.
Lolly is a playful Labby with nice Labby energy who adores retrieving and carrying her ball and toys. She also loves to chew on her toys so good tough toys are best for Lollie. She also loves teddies and soft toys but loves to discover the stuffing inside if possible!
True to her breed, Lolly also is a water baby and is thrilled to have a beach day or a swim party of any kind. She would love to accompany you to dog beach and swim with other doggies.
She loves a good walk or hike and is great around other dogs, so you can take her anywhere and she will do well with some good exercise every day. She walks nicely on the leash and passes other dogs beautifully.
Lolly is a loyal girl and will bond quickly to her new family. She is a tad shy at first when meeting new people but quickly warms up and is her typical sweet dollface.
Lolly is allergic to grain and should be on a grain free high quality food. She has been eating a Fresh Pet diet which her owners lovingly fed to her along with some coat enhancing oils. Her beautiful fur just glows with a healthy sheen!
Lolly is housebroken, knows her basic commands and sleeps right through the night. Although her previous owners didn't register her, Lolly has a AKC pedigree and her new family is welcome to register her if desired. We will provide her AKC papers to her new family.
Lolly is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccines. She is ready to make a lucky family very happy indeed! Will she be yours?
Yule Tide adopted!
Meet Yule Tide, or "Yuley" as we call him! Yuley is a 3 year old pure bred English Labrador retriever who is an absolute black beauty! This young labby has a coat like shiny velvet, the brightest eyes and a backside that wiggles like Jell-O when he wags. Yuley is an incredible physical specimen and just adorable to behold. He is truly irresistible!
Yuley came to us from high kill shelter. We believe he may have been used to breed puppies because he was so physically well cared for. He really is just a gorgeous young dog.
This sweet guy didn't show much interest in toys at first but now he carries his favorite duck around the house and enjoys fetching the tennis ball. He is learning the joys of being a well loved house pet!
Yuley is a calmer medium energy young Labrador who will settle into a more mellow fella post neuter. He will be neutered after Christmas and his new family can bring him back to our vet to perform the deed at our expense. He was still recovering from a minor cold earlier which is why his neuter was postponed.
This young fella has not been trained much and will need consistent commands with positive reinforcement. He wants to please his human and while not food obsessed, he does like treats which will help the process and keep training fun. He's already learned to wait to hop up on the family room couch until he gets an invite and the doggy blanket has been spread out! That said, he will sometimes still help himself to a snooze on the living room furniture when his foster family is away. He corrects easily and wants to learn.
Yuley is an enthusiastic walker who pulls on a leash at bit at first, but his foster mother uses a gentle leader and he is beginning to respond to correction. As stated, he is a medium energy lab, but at three years old would love one or two good walks a day or would enjoy a jog or hike with you now and then. The more he walks, the better he is on leash. He is loving learning to be an excellent buddy.
As mentioned, Yuley has not been neutered as he has been recovering from his doggie cold. He is now better but his neuter cannot be performed until after Christmas when an appointment can be made at one of our vets. Because he is still intact, he can be a tad dominant with his senior male foster brother. This will subside after a neuter when he feels less like a stud and more like a teddy bear!
We believe this was a stud dog due to his looks, conformation and temperament so it's unsurprising that he would act like one. A neuter will correct that fairly fast and until then he'll do best with females. However he may try some loving behavior (aka humping) with females too :-), so his new family will need to be patient until his neuter is complete and he has recovered. We know Yuley will mellow some more after being neutered but we think he'll do his best in a home as an only dog to start out.
This gorgeous hunk is up to date on vaccines and microcipped. His neuter will be done at our expense at one of our vets.
This boy has it all - the potential for perfection, the looks, the temperament and the love. All he needs is the very best fur-ever home! Will he be your Yule Tide treat??
Meet Blake! Oh this guy is a real find! He is a happy, sweet, gorgeous purebred black Labrador of about 3 years old with a gorgeous shiny black coat. What a hunk! Blake is an English or bench bred Labrador with a blocky head and stocky frame which is perfect for the breed. His sweetness and his dopiness combined are just irresistable!
Blake is a bit chunky - likely from being overfed. He needs to lose a few pounds but with his regular exercise and quality limited food, he'll be perfect in no time. He is a big GENTLE boy. His feet look like snowshoes! This snuggle bunny is a gentle bear cub of a dog. He's just lovely - mild mannered, calm, but with just the right amount of playfulness.
Blake came to us from a local high kill shelter where he found himself as a stray - we will never know why. When we saw him, we knew he needed to be rescued and join the Indilab family!
Blake is a low to medium energy boy on the calmer side who is mellow and well mannered in the home. He would make a great companion to another doggie or would do well as your one and only boy. He is currently fostered as an only dog and does very well. He will alert you by barking when someone is at the door, but true to the Lab temperament, he quickly starts wiggling and wagging his tail as soon as you open the door to say hello.
Blake seems much too interested in the cat in his foster home, so no kitties for Blake in his new home.
Blake, though pretty mellow, has medium energy and loves his walks! He does pull on leash, but his foster mom is using an Easy Walk harness and he's doing really well with that!
He settles beautifully in the house after his exercise and he is completely housebroken.! He enjoys his dog bed and his doggie toys and loves being part of the family. He is a good car rider and enjoys his rides by calming settling down and cruzing along.
We believe this big Labby cuddle-bug would do great with kids due to his gentleness. As always, any big dog could knock a child down without intending to do so.
Blake has a great temperament and good foundation, but likely his family fell off of his training, so he could use a few reminders of his basic commands. He takes correction very well and responds to gentle reminders. He wants to please his human so it will be no trouble getting him to learn the ropes of your household.
Blake loves it when you rub his cheeks and will even find his way into your lap if you let him He will return your time and attention with happiness, love and kisses right back to you!
Blake is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Aleda, the sweetest girl. Aleda is a darling, yellow, purebred Labrador Retriever with a gorgeous face and a diliscious disposition. She's the epidome of Labrador lovliness!
Aleda is 5 years old and is a calm, easy going gal who is the perfect mix of fun and easy. She has super soft Labby coat and fat otter tail that wags everytime you look into her burnt sugar eyes. Aleda is a Labrador! Enough said!
As amazing as it sound, Aleda came to us from a high kill shelter where she was in real danger. Lucky for Aleda our volunteer was there to get her out as soon a possible.
Aleda is 100% house broken. She is a good girl about doing her potty outside and she sleeps the night through. Aleda also loves her food as most Labbies do! She will use her sensitive Labby nose to discover food in trash cans and couter tops, so its important to keep yummies out of her reach.
This angel is as affectionate as the day is long. She likes nothing more then to be by your side or in your lap for pets. She is as close to a real life teady bear as we've seen! She sleeps in a dog bed at her foster moms feet most nights, but she’d be happy to snuggle right next to you all night long.
Aleda is great with other dogs, although at times she can find her very young foster brother a little too hyper for her taste. She really enjoys playing fetch and loves doggie toys too. She is a medium energy girl who loves her walks and is a very calm dog in the home. Aleda is perfect on the leash, she never pulls, passes other dogs nicely and stays right at your side.
Aleda has beautiful conformation. She is a tad chunky in the most adorable way giving you more to hug and snuggle with. This will come off easily with her daily walks and high quality grain free food
Aleda rides nicely in the car she will hop right in like a co-pilot. She would be happy to run around town with you and be part of the action. She would even love sitting at your feet at Starbucks or a cafe. She's just a great take-along dog.
Aleda has not been cat-tested so no kitties for her. She will do fine with children over age 8 and will do great with another friendly canine companion who is of comparable energy (not a super hyper puppy). She will also do fine as an only dog provided you are around most of the time - working from home, etc. We say this only because she came into the shelter with another dog we think she lived with and we believe she's never been an only dog.
Aleda is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. She is ready for only the very best fur-ever home. Will it be yours?
She's not a lion cub but she is just as adorable! Meet Elsie the English Labrador Retriever gal who's super calm personality is about as cuddly as her darling, snuggly body. Oh we love this creampuff!
Sweet Elsie, an adorable English lab about 6 years old, is a soft buttercream dream with soulful burnt sugar eyes, a chunky otter tail, and a gorgeous English conformation. Along with the English conformation, Elsie delivers the English temperament in spades. She is everything we love about English bench bred Labradors.
Elsie came to us from a high kill shelter where she was turned in as a stray. How that happened and how no one showed up for her is a major mystery to us.
Elsie is a smaller sized petite Labby girl who is slightly on the chunky side as many English labs are. She is close to her perfect weight and should take off just a couple pounds with good high quality food and daily walks.
This little bundle of sweetness will make a great companion! She loves to pick out a toy from the doggie bin and proudly show you her selection. She adores belly scratches and if she senses a tummy rub coming her way she will immediately stretch out with an expectant look of anticipation! Toss her the tennis ball a few times and she's ready to settle in for a nice afternoon nap.
Elsie is a medium to low energy dog. Her foster mom walks her with a regular collar and she does pull a bit but adjusts nicely after a few minutes. She really enjoys all the wonderful scents there are to sniff on her walks! She passes other dogs nicely and is a pleasure to stroll around the neighborhood with. She will do great with other dogs at outings, dog beach, or dog park.
Elsie is a typical Labrador Retriever where food is concerned. She is not food obsessed but will help herself to a sniff or more if an inviting trashcan is left out in the open. As with all Labradors, trash should be put away and not left out to explore. She is housebroken and sleeps beautifully through the night and she is not destructive. She has excellent housemanners.
This girl would do well as an only dog or with a mellow canine companion to be buddies with. It would be nice for her to have a friend or a pool or be near our beautiful Socal ocean.
Elsie is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and microchipped.
Priority will be given to those familis who are the best fit for Elsie in the order they have been waiting. We generally will let the first family who emails and has been approved and waiting a while to meet a dog first.
Elsie is fostered in the Thousand Oaks area.
Meet Kona Girl, the beautiful, deep dark purebred chocolate Labrador who will melt your heart, and whose big, brown eyes will make you smile. She is remarkably lovey. She is 6 years old and at the perfect age!
Kona came to us because her owners moved to a smaller home, and Kona didn’t have the space that she needed. They were working longer hours and Kona Girl was often left alone. Her family knew she deserved better and so they contacted us in the hope that a really great forever home could be found. Kona Girl has been well loved and well cared-for her entire life.
Kona Girl's family had a young child and Kona was very gentle and good with her. She is affectionate and loves humans people, but will still let you know that she is there when someone come to the door.
Kona Girl should not be in a home with cats, as her curiosity gets the best of her and she likes to chase them. Even if your cats are dog-savvy, we prefer not to place her with kitties.
Kona is doing exceptionally well at her foster home. She is incredibly sweet and charming. She loves to play with her toys and bones. Kona does fine when left alone in the house making her an ideal "only" dog or a companion dog to another friendly sweet canine. She is not destructive and has lovely house manners. Kona does not get on the furniture at all either which is so nice. She likes a nice bed nearby instead.
Kona Girl loves to eat. Most Labbies do! In order to keep her in great shape as she is now, her new family will want to keep her on a good diet and not give her too many treats. She loves treats and snacks and will steal food out of your hand if you are not paying attention. We think she learned this from the little child she lived with giving her food all the time. She will absolute be broken of this if gently corrected if it happens.
Kona Girl has very hostess manners and refrains from jumping up on guests. She will simply warm your heart by sitting next to you and putting her head on your lap. She especially loves ear scratches.
Kona loves to go for her walks. She doesn't pull and passes other dogs nicely. She is a low to medium energy, gentle Labrador and can just chill with you with some simply playtime or cuddling. She in on her glucosamine supplements as all Labs should be. This happy-go-lucky girl is fine being left alone or going out and about and is really good in the car too. She seems to enjoy car rides.
Kona loves water and the dog beach. She would really love a home near dog beach or a home with a pool.
She gets along fabulously with other dogs and sometimes likes to steal their dogs’ toys. Kona would do great in a house with another dog.
Kona is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
She is patiently waiting to share her love and happiness with you. Will you be her forever home?
Meet Grant 2, a stunningly handsome, bench bred, 3-year old AKC registerd yellow lab. This stocky boy is almost white in color with a perfect otter tail, short stop, and kitten-round paws. His eyes are burnt sugar and he has beautiful black eyeliner. He's a very gorgeous fella.
Grant 2 came to us when his owners were no longer able to stay in the large homestead they had. They moved into a very small apartment and felt this guy would be much happier with space and much more attention. They were right. He is already blossoming in his foster home with several dogs, lots of room to play inside and well as a pool and large play area outside. He's having a blast!
Grant is a real snuggler and lover. He would love to lay in your lap if he could! He's fabulous with all other dogs and makes friends easily. Grant prefers a home with another playful friendly canine companion as he needs a best buddy and gets a little anxious left alone without one. With a friend, he is happy as a clam.
Grant knows his basic command like sit, and stay. He needs to brush up and get regular commands and education in his new home. He wants to please so will respond to your mood and your instruction nicely. Grant does have a habit of jumping up to hug you as he wants to give you love. Plus we think someone taught him that. He is learning that jumping is not ok and so far is learning well.
Grant is a couter surfer so NO FOOD on counters or he will eat it all. Most Lab homes already know this about our breed. When you have a Labrador, you always have a clean counter. If it's not clean, your Labby will clean it for you.
Grant will come with his "giggle ball" which he absolutely loves and his foster mom and dad bought for him.
Grant should have a home where he will get daily exercise at dog park, dog beach of on a hike. He is a more medium/mellow boy though as as an English Lab, he will mellow out considerably in the next year too. For now, he's medium energy to medium low. And he does want a play mate!
Grant is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and ready for love, love, love! Will he be yours?
Bon Bon adopted!
Meet Bon Bon! Bon Bon is a petite, adorable 4-5 year old chocolate girl with an adorable smile. Her smaller size makes her even more darling!
Bon Bon is a pretty dark chocolate treat with an adorable face and an even more adorable shape and size. She is just about 55 lbs which is nice if you like a more petite Labby. She loves everyone and loves to cuddle, be pet, and gaze into your eyes.
Bon Bon came to us from an inland shelter where she was picked up as a stray. She must have been so scared waiting for her owners who never came. She was kenneled with another dog and made friends so at least she had some company. Needless to say, our volunteer scooped her to safety as soon as we were informed he was there.
Bon Bon is doing wonderfully in her foster home where she is fostered with two male Labradors and a female Lab mix. She would love a submissive and friendly canine companion or to be your one and only!
Bon Bon is a darling sized, medium energy lab who is wonderful to be with. She loves retrieving her ball and will bring it back! She loves her walks and walks nicely on leash. She can't wait to come home with you!
Bon Bon gets on well with other dogs and seems to enjoy their company. She will do well with a friendly canine companion who is more submissive since she can at times be a tad bossy as most females can be. But she really does love other dogs!
Bon Bon would love a home where she can get lots of walks and ball tosses and tons of cuddling. She is on the velcro side and loves her people. She is also pretty mellow and likes to settle at your feet.
No cats for this angel as he has not been cat tested. No exceptions.
Bon Bon loves to be near her person and will follow you from room to room. She loves to be close and is a real lover. We think she'll do find with kids over ages 8-9 but could unintentionally knock them down with her wiggly waggly tail.
Bon Bon is spayed and up to date on his vaccines.
If you feel this doll baby is right for you and you have been home checked and approved, you may email email@example.com to learn more
Meet Beemer! Beemer is a delicious 4-5 year old chocolate chunk. This purebred Labrador Retriever is nothing but pure darlingness!
Beemer is a deep dark chocolate cupcake with beautiful, soulfull eyes and a gorgeous face and head. He's a stunning fellow! He is the breed standard large sized boy and is a very, very good cuddler.
Beemer came to us from an inland shelter where he was given up by his owners because they were "moving". Given that he is so wonderful and so easy, it's hard to imagine letting him go! Needless to say, our volunteer scooped him to safety as soon as we were informed he was there.
Beemer is doing wonderfully in his foster home where he is fostered with another male Labrador who he gets along perfectly with.
Beemer is a good sized, medium energy lab who is wonderful to be with. He loves his walks and walks nicely on leash, although he definitely does pull in the beginning. He eventually gets in step with you and walks perfectly.
Beemer gets on well with other dogs and seems to enjoy their company. He will do well with a friendly canine companion.
We thing given his size and temperament that he will be fine with older teenagers as he is calm and sweet. But we won't condiser small childred because he may knock them over.
No cats for this angel as he has not been cat tested. No exceptions.
Beemer loves to be near his person and will follow you from room to room. He loves to be at your feet or watching you do your thiink. He's a great best buddy.
Beemer is neutered and up to date on his vaccines.
Meet Floyd, an adorable purebred yellow male Labrador Retriever of just 3 years of age. This young beautiful Labrador is gorgeous and needs the very best home.
Floyd came to us from one of the highest kill shelters in the county where he was impounded as a stray. He was very sick with an upper respiratory infection and had not been eating at the shelter due to stress and depression. He was in horrible shape. Lucky for Floyd our volunteer met him and brought him to safety as soon as we could get him into our program.
Floyd is better from his cold and eating well but he is still underweight and needs to gain at least 15 lbs to be the solid and strong male Labby boy he will be.
Floyd is a buttery yellow fella with burnt sugar eyes and a sweet expression. He's a young boy who had plenty of Labby spunk and energy and wants to be a best buddy.
This guy needs a home where he will get the training and exercisse all young Labs need. He still pulls on the leash a bit so needs to be walked with a pinch collar or gentle leader. Hell walk nicely with you with the pinch collar on. He would love his daily long brisk walk each cay and would enjoy weekend hikes or playdates.
Floyd has learned sit and is being crate trained. His new owners will want to work with him on all his commands and maybe do a young canine obedience class as well. Floyd wants to please his person but no one has shown him what to do. His new owners will help him grow into the solid canine citizen he wants to be. He's a very, very good boy!!!
Floyd is a good boy in the car and seems to be already housebroken. He has been known to counter surf looking for goodies so his new owner will want to keep clean and clear tables and counter tops to continue his training. Most Labradors love people food and once they find out it's readily available on a counter top, they will keep going back until they realize there is nothing there to eat. Keeping clean counters and tables will cure this behavior quickly and completely. All Labbies love food!
Floyd is a playful fella who will need a few good chew toys and bones about. Nylabones are great as are bully sticks! he is just past puppyhood at age 3 or younger and so he'll want to play, chew, fetch and retrieve as he well should.
Floyd is a wonderful boy. He's stunningly handsome has a nice family dog permsonality and wants to please. No little children or cats for Floyd since he's a young boy who may knock a little one down or chase a kitty. But we do think he will be great with older kids.
Floyd is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. Will he be yours?
Sunshine Sally adopted!
Meet Sunshine Sally, a beautiful, titled AKC registered female Lab who is a show quality dogs. Sunshine is 7 years old and retired from showing. She is ready to meet her forever family.
Sally has lived most of her life as a kennel dog and she loves other dogs. In fact she must go to a home with another sweet loving dog. She is sometimes a little shy with humans but still very loving. She can be timid at first with her people but warms up quickly.
Sally should be placed with another dog who is sweet and friendly just like she is. She loves other dogs and her transistion will be 100 times easier for her if there is at least one other dog in the home.
Sally does not know many commands but is eager to please her people. She is an extremely gentle dog who deserves only the very best, most loving and patient home.
This girl is extremely mellow and easy going. She's not a hiker or jogger but is a typical English Show Lab meaning she is stunningly gorgeous and likes to lay around or be close, relax and be near your side. She is a true companion dog.
We rarely come across dogs of this superior quality of conformation and temperament, so this girl is a find. However she will need TLC to acliate to being a house dog who is totally comfortable meeing lots of people and going on adventures. Her entire life has been on a ranch with limited people. Her temperament is fantastic so she will adjust and be the sweetest girl on the planet. But we want her new family to be patient and loving as she comes out of her shell.
Sally is spayed and up to date on vaccines. She is healthy and happy and ready for her new fur-ever home! Will it be yours?
If you are looking for a mellow, English Labrador, here she is!
Bandit Puppy adopted!
Bandit is an adorable purebred yellow male Labrador puppy. Bandit is 5-6 months old and has no dew claws so is likely a purebred Labrador. He's almost white in color and has a jet black nose!. He really is the most darling boy.
Bandit is very, very sweet. He is a happy wiggly Labrador who loves everyone he meets! In fact, he will jump up on you with excitement - very typical of young lab pups. He will just need to learn to greet people with all four paws on the ground before he gets larger and jumping up isn't as cute. He takes his treats gently and is food motivated so will learn his commands quickly with a family dedicated to giving him the training he needs to become a good adult canine citizen.
Bandit is a young boy who is learning his basic commands beautifully! It would be lovely for his new owners to consider doing a puppy obedience class. He tends to pull on the leash a bit so will need training on how best to walk on leash. He is currently only about 45 lbs but will grow to be 65 as an adult so good leash skills will be important.
Bandit is a sweetheart and loves to give kisses. He is young so it's always best to provide a lot of suitable toys for a dog this age, as he may chew the wrong thing.
Lab puppies his age all require lots of exercise and attention. He would love to play fetch, be a jogging partner, go to dog park or even enjoy a hike with you every day!
While Bandit will do well with children, we will only consider homes with kids over age 8 for him as families need to have the time dedicate to the training and exercise all young pups need.
This darling white lab puppy has superior temperament and will grow up to be a wonderful dog who is great with everyone and all dogs.
Bandit is up to date on vaccines and microchipped. He is not yet neutered, so will need to be brought to our vet for neuter within 30 days of adoption.
Meet sweet Cindy! She is a purebred, 5 year old female English Labrador that will win over your heart and soul with her gentle loving eyes and smile. She is a perfect labby girl in every sense of the word. Medium sized with a gentle, kind face that will melt your heart.
Cindy came to us from a show breeder who has retired her as she was not able to get pregnant. She is a show quality Labrador or superior temperament. She had very little human contact as the breeder was located in a more remote area and only he and kennel personnel saw Cindy other than when at dog shows. Therefore she is a tad shy. She has fly strike on both ears from such a hot summer in the kennels. It is healing very nicely. She is timid right now but is really coming out of her shell more and more everyday.
She gets along with other dogs once she has been introduced to them properly and is shown her place in the pack. She is currently living with 5 other Indi Lab grads (2 males and 3 females). She loves to lay around with the gang and just hang out, or wander around the pool. She has already learned how to climb down on the second step of her foster families pool and she LOVES it. She is going to be a great water dog. She has not been tested with cats but it is most certain that she will be fine with them.
Cindy has mastered the doggy door to go outside but occasionally makes a potty mistatke. With a little more positive training her housebreaking will be complete! She is very, very smart and eager to please. Cindy rides perfectly in the car and quietly lays down. She is also learning to walk on a leash and so far is doing excellent.
She has been spayed and all shots are up to date. The new owner will need to get her micro-chipped. She also has a beautiful smile is as her teeth were just cleaned.
Cindy is a stunning girl and the family that adopts her will be happy for many many years as she will bring nothing but love and affection the right family.
Molly Madison adopted!
Meet Molly Madison, or Maddie for short, a lovely almost white-yellow, easy going English female Labrador of 6 years. She is a perfectly bred English Labrador.
Our beautiful Maddie is now ready for adoption. This poor sweet girl came to us from a Southern California high kill shelter where her family dropped her off because they said they were getting divorced and could not keep her.
Molly Madison has a gorgeous soft white coat, warm loving eyes and will sit by your side soaking up whatever attention you want to give her.
Molly is a bit overweight as her previous family did not provide exercise or enrichment and free fed her. Labbies should never be free fed. On her new normal diet, she is shedding excess wieght and with her walks which she loves, the rest will fall off with no effort.
She is a happy girl who loves her walks, enjoys playing with the doggie toys in her foster home and mostly just enjoys spending time with her people. Maddie is a great walking partner, never pulling on leash - what a good girl! She just wiggles wherever she goes and wags her tail with everyone she meets.
Maddie is a wonderful indoor companion. She will lay at your feet while you work or keep you company while reading or watching TV. She is a medium energy girl who would love a home where she can get her continued daily exercise and limited food where she can lose the extra weight. Maddie would do well as your one and only, or with another doggie companion. She is also fabulous with kitties, so would be a great choice for a family with cats. Maddie has been fostered with 5 other dogs, both big and small and she is just perfect with all of them! Maddie is 100% housebroken and not destructive, but with any new dog, she should be watched at first in her new home. She loves to have access to the back yard via the doogie door and we can count on her to use it as needed. If her new home doesn't have a doggie door, she may need to learn the potty schedule there.
Molly Madison is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Roxy 7 adopted!
Meet Roxy! This butterbal female English Lab is pure perfection. She is an AKC purebred female with a perfect temperament. Roxy is an 8 to 9 year old darling girl who loves her walks, belly rubs and snuggles.
Roxy is an English Lab. She has the gorgeous look we adore with her beautiful cream coat, stocky frame, and otter tail. There is nothing like a pretty English Labrador!
Roxy came to us because her owner fell into poor health. Friends and petsitters scrambled to get Roxy to us and we are thrilled to have her in our program.

Lulu 3 adopted!
Meet Lulu, a beautiful AKC registered female purebred English Labrador. She is 8 years young and a beautiful buttery yellow coloring. Lulu is a petite girl and a wonderful smaller size. She has a darling bear cub face and a terrific smile! This is really a very beautifully bred Labrador!
Lulu came to us when her owners dumped her at the shelter because "they are moving." How sad. Fortunately, she only spent one night there before we were able to get her safely out and to her loving foster home where she was cleaned up, given a warm soft bed, tons of kisses and pets, and a feeling of instant security. And although her family abandonded her, luckily for Lulu, she will get only the very best fur-ever home now!
She gets along with other dogs once she has been introduced properly. Her current foster family has 4 other Indi lab kids and she hangs out with them all day and night. She can be a bit temperamental towards strange dogs if shes in a stressful situation, like a visit to the vets office. She is not dog aggressive, but will sometimes bark or show some displeasure with certain dogs. However, she is easily corrected. Once she meets a dog, she is just fine.
Lulu is house broken and currently uses a doggy door. She loves being able to go in and out as she pleases but will also let her family know if she needs to go potty if the door is closed. She is non destructive and loves to lay quietly on a sofa next to her people, just enjoy some attention and moaning (yes, it's VERY cute).
Lulu is a very good girl in the car. She rides quietly and calmly. She will hop in, sit or lay down and just cruise along. She pulls a bit on the leash and but overall she is very good on walks and loves to take in all of the sights and smells. As she walks, she gets better and better with her pulling. In no time she will be walking like an easy show dog!
She adores her people and would love to be your true love. A very easy going girl who would love the very best home! Isn't she gorgeous?
Meet Chandler! Oh this guy is a real find! He is a happy, sweet, gorgeous yellow English Lab of 7-8 years old. And he is one of our most favorite ever rescued Labs. He is just about the best dog in the world.
He is an adorable boy with a happy personality and a sweet look in his eyes that just makes you want to hug and pet him all day.
This boy is about 80 pounds with a gorgeous face & droopy jowels. He is the perfect size for a male Labrador. His feet look like snowshoes! And this guy is a gentle bear cub of a dog. Just lovely. Mild mannered, calm, but with just the right amount of playfulness. He is pure perfection perfect for all people and all dogs.
Chandler came to us from one of the highest kill shelters in the state. When we met him, we knew he needed to be saved. He is a big, goofy, lovable boy who has a lovely temperament - the kind of Lab you adore!! And exactly the kind of Labrador we love to save. He is a real prize.
Chandler is a low to medium energy boy who is calm in the home, but also loves his play time with a ball or doggie toy. He would make a great companion to another doggie, or would do well as your one and only boy. He is fostered with 3 other male Labs and they all get along great!
Chandler, though pretty mellow, has medium energy and loves his walks! He does like to pull on leash though, so he is best walked with a pinch collar. He settles into his walks after about 15 minutes with less pulling. And we are certain with some additional training from his owner, he will learn to walk with his person. He is a healthy, fit boy who would enjoy regular walks, perhaps a short hike on occasion or even trips to the beach or dog park if you like.
He settles beautifully in the house after his exercise and is housebroken! He enjoys his chew toys and other toys on occasion keeping himself entertained or sharing with his doggie friend. He sleeps soundly through the night and is non-destructive when left. This boy is an all around great Lab!
We don't know how Chandler would do around kitties, so no cats for him in his new home.
Chandler is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Dutch! Oh what a lovely boy! Dutch is the cutest, sweetest boy in the world. He is a beautiful purebred yellow male lab of 6-7 years with no dew claws. He weighs about 80 lbs and is a really nice size for a male Labrador.
Dutch loves other dogs and loves people. He has fabulous doggie manners and does wonderfully with all other dogs he meets both big and small. Dutch came to us from a local high kill shelter. He found himself there when his owner turned him in because his roommate was allergic. Poor Dutch became very sad and got sick while he was at the shelter. We were alerted to him when he became ill and we found him sad and depressed laying on the shelter floor. We rescued him, got him a nice bath and had him treated at our vet. He is now happy and healthy and ready for a new forever home where he won't be given up ever again.
Dutch is pretty good on the leash, but pulls a little. He is best walked with a training collar until he learns to stay right with you. He loves his walks and gets excited when you get the leash out to take him for a walk!
Dutch is very well mannered in the house and is completely housebroken. However any new dog must be watched in their new home until they learn your routine.
He has been left for short periods of time uncrated and has done very well. He has not barked at all yet.
Dutch is well trained and knows his commands! He knows sit, down, and comes when called all the time! What a good boy!
Dutch is a total lover. He loves being with his people. He will sit right up next to you to be pet and may even find himself on your lap if you let him.
We do not know how Dutch would do with cats so we will not place him with them.
He loves belly scratches and play time (ball time) outside with his people.
He enjoys the car and is very well behaved. He just sits down for the entire ride - happy to go anywhere you are going.
Dutch is a medium energy boy who is sweet and loving with a goofy, silly part of him as well. He will make any family so happy - with his loving temperament and his silly side keeping you laughing as well. Dutch would do well as your one and only, or with another doggie companion.
Dutch is now healthy, up to date on vaccines, and neutered.
Jackie 3 adopted!
Meet Jackie, the cutest 1 year old purebred Labrador you'll ever see! This happy girl is so darn adorable and she has a ton of love to give.
Jackie is a typical purebred Labrador Retriever. She's beautiful, fun, happy and loves everyone. Jackie has a light cream almost white color coat and nice conformation. She has pearly white puppy teeth and a jet black nose you just want to kiss all the time.
Jackie came to us when her owner recently passed away. She was purchased as a puppy from a breeder and then sadly spent almost all her time in the backyard. She would love nothing more than to be a true family member and spend her days as an indoor dog.
Jackie is a good girl. She only wants to please and is a fabulous candidate for obedience training because she loves to learn and she wants to make you happy. She hasn't had much training so she will benefit from some good obedience training with her new owner so she can become the best canine citizen.
Jackie is a medium energy young Labrador. She loves her walks and will do best with someone who can provide her dog park and a good hike or walk each day. Lab puppies need their daily exercise and their daily play time and remember, Labs are puppies for a full two years.
Jackie is about 75 lbs and will grow to probably about 80 at full adult size. She's an average sized female Labrador and is very beautiful.
She can pull a bit on leash, so will need some training or to be walked on a training collar until she learns to walk in stride with you. She meets other dogs nicely, but excited to greet each and every dog.
Jackie needs a home dediated to owning a young Labrador. That means time, attention, exercise, and committed training. She is such a score that we think she's worth the commitment.
Although Jackie likes kids, we are not adopting him to any homes with children under age 8. She requires training and time and busy parents cannot possibly dedicate that to a puppy when they have little children to tend to.
Jackie has not been cat tested so no home with cats for Jackie.
She loves other dogs and will do find with another friendly canine companion, or as your one and only. She adores playing with other dogs, so if she is your only dog, she will want to have regular trips to dog park or play dates with other dogs.
Jackie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Oh what a hunk! Meet Bogart - a super mellow low to medium energy gorgeous purebred English Labrador of about 7 years old. He is a big, dopey, loving, sweet, mellow lap dog with big bear paws. His coat is literally perfect- thick, shiny and very dark brown. His foster mom says he also doesn’t seem to shed as much as some Labs either.
Bogart is one handsome boy! He has a big blocky head, short stocky wide body and otter tail and as is typical to the English breed. He get compliments everywhere he goes on his amazing good looks!
Bogart came to us when his owner became very ill and could no longer care for Bogart physically or financially. Luckily we were there to help usher this beautiful boy to his new forever home.
But looks is not all Bogart has going for him. His temperament is amazing as well. He’s very mellow and wiggles the moment he even makes eye contact with his human companion. He is completely housebroken and has good manners in the house and he doesn’t really bark at anything or anyone. He doesn’t even rush the front door when people come over. He is just a quiet, well mannered boy and never jumps on anyone – just easygoing in general.
Bogart really loves his short 20-30 minutes walks and whines with excitement when he sees his leash come out - he is just so happy to smell every single thing he walks past and he wiggles at anyone he passes. He passes other dogs with ease and little interest but loves to go up and say hi if given the opportunity. Bogart is great on leash, rarely pulling.
Bogart is fabulous with all other dogs - in fact he's great with almost every living creature. In his past he lived with goats, chickens, horses and cats. So this boy is would make a great one and only, but would also be great if you have other dogs, cats or even horses too. He sleeps soundly through the night on and off his doggy bed in his foster mom's bedroom.
Bogart is a mostly mellow boy, but does have moments of playfulness where he begs his foster brother (another male lab) to play with him. We think he might enjoy short play dates with other dogs, although we don't think he would play all day long. Bogart doesn’t get excited with toys and has zero interest in playing fetch. He would prefer to just hang around with his human companions!
Bogart would do great with kids, but he is a large and strong boy, so could easily knock over a small child.
Bogart is just lovely all around! He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Molly 3 Adopted!
Meet Molly, a darling dark chocolate Labby girl of about 5-6 years of age. She is adorably petite, easy going girl and such a lover.
Molly is a very dark chocolate. In fact, she is almost black! Her coat is very shiny and her eyes are bright and she is so pretty. Her petite frame makes her extra darling and everyone who meets her wants to cuddle and pet her!
Molly is mellow and low key but will also play and have fun. She is mellow as they come but will still jog with you if you like. She is the perfect mix of fun and easy. She is a wonderful in the house and likes to be near where you are. She is housebroken, non-destructive and wants to please.
Molly loves to be near her person or people. She loves her walks especially and is perfect on the leash. She does not pull and will walk at your pace. if you slow down that's ok and if you speed up it's ok too. She's an excellent walking buddy but also will jog with you or stroll. Whatever pace you like, Molly will comply!
Molly is doing wonderfully in her foster home with her foster mom and even her foster mom's elderly grandmother who Molly is gentle and loving toward. She is doing beautifully with her foster mom's resident male Labrador as well, although Molly really wants to be the only dog in the household and the center of your world.
Molly will do best in a home as an only dog and where she will get plenty of love. She would also do fine with another dog who is not dominant and preferable male. She's so easy to have around and wlll be perfect on days when you are home or not and when you can do nice walks or not too. She's just as happy watching a movie or laying by your feet but she does love her walks so much as well.
Molly will do fine with kids or seniors or even elderly people. She just loves people!
We do not know about cats, so no kitties for Molly at this time.
Molly is healthy and happy with a constant smile, wag and will lay on her back for belly rubs.
If you are looking for a really sweet, easy and loving Labby girl who is a truly loyal companion, look no further. Molly wants to be yours. Will she?
Meet Gordo! Oh this guy is a real find! He is a happy, sweet, gorgeous purebred chocolate Lab of 6 years old. What a hunk! Gordo has a goofy look on his big old head that makes you not be able to stop hugging him. His sweetness and his dopiness combined is just irresistable!
This boy is stocky with a gorgeous face and droopy jowels. He's a tad chunk yand with some exercise and quality limited food, he'll shed the excess with no trouble. He is just a big GENTLE boy. His feet look like snowshoes! And this guy is a gentle bear cub of a dog. Just lovely. Mild mannered, calm, but with just the right amount of playfulness.
Gordo came to us when his family fell on very tough times and could no longer care for him. A good Samaritan took him in and then contacted us to help him find the best forever home! He is a big, goofy, lovable boy who has a lovely temperament - the kind of Lab you adore!! And exactly the kind of Labrador we love to save. He is a real prize.
Gordo is a medium energy boy on the calmer side who is mellow and well mannered in the home. He would make a great companion to another doggie, or would do well as your one and only boy. He is fostered with two other dogs and they all get along great! He really adores other dogs and has a nice degree of playfulness too. He would love to have a playful doggie companion, or if an only dog, would enjoy trips to dog park or play dates with other dogs.
Gordo, though pretty mellow, has medium energy and loves his walks! He is pretty good on the leash too, however he does pull at times so he is best walked with a pinch collar. He loves his walks, dog park and really just going anywhere. He would love to go to dog beach or anywhere there are other dogs and he also likes to ride in the car. He has enjoyed some hikes with his foster mom and he is a great hiking buddy!
He settles beautifully in the house after his exercise and is housebroken! He enjoys his chew toys and other toys on occasion keeping himself entertained or sharing with his doggie friend. He is a good car rider and enjoys his car rides.
Even though this guy is big boy at 100 pounds, we believe he would do great with kids of all ages due to his gentleness. Although keep in mind that any big dog could knock a child down.
Gordo has a great temperament and good foundation, but likely his family fell off of his training, so he could use a few reminders of his basic commands and not to counter surf in the kitchen. He takes correction very well and responds to gentle reminders. He would love a family who will give him the love, training and exercise he has been missing for a while. He is such a love bug, he will return your time and attention with happiness and love and kisses right back to you!
Gordo is very interested in kitties, squirrels and rabbits and enjoys a good chase, so no cats for Gordo in his new home.
Gordo is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Brandy - a purebred chocolate female lab of about 5-6 years old. She has a gorgeous chocolate coat and the sweetest temperament ever!
Brandy came to us from an owner who could no longer keep her due to their living situation and work schedule. We are happy to help this girl as she is just pure sweetness and a pleasure to have in your family.
Brandy gets along fabulously with all other dogs. She is currently fostered with 2 female labs and all the girls get along great. Brandy is not much for playing with other dogs, but she enjoys having them around. She is a submissive girl who is so easy going with dogs and people.
This is one special girl her foster mom says! She is completely housebroken, uses the doggie door to go in and out and is non-destructive when left at home while her foster mom is at work.
Brandy is a low to medium energy girl. She enjoys a couple walks a day and settles right in laying near you all day long. She is a perfect mellow companion! She might enjoy a short hike here or there, but she is not a running partner. Brandy isn't really into dog toys or bones and doesn't play fetch either - she mostly just loves looking cute and rolling over for belly rubs!
Brandy rides great in the car and would love to go with you to run errands, vacations and more. She has even enjoyed a playdate in a friend's pool and she seems to enjoy swimming a lot! She went right in the water and loved playing with the other dogs in the water.
Brandy is pure joy and sweetness. She is easy going, mellow and really loves her dog bed where she sleeps all night long and often can be found resting during the day as well. She is a gentle girl, gives kisses to her people and loves affection and belly rubs the most!
One family will be so lucky to add this girl to their family. If you are looking for a mellow companion, Brandy could be your girl.
Brandy is up to date on vaccinations, spayed & microchipped.
Buster Brown Adopted!
Meet Buster Brown, a playful and happy chocolate lab who is 9 years young. This boy is ready to be an affectionate companion in his furever home!
Buster is a medium sized, purebred chocolate Labrador Retriever. He has beautiful burnt sugar eyes and the typical dopey Labby expression we all love. He is in nice shape and not overweight. He has some slight Labby arthritis common to most labs his age, and keeping his weight in check and providing low impace exercise, fish oil, and glucosamine will keep him feeling fine and healthy.
This sweet full breed American lab has medium energy and gets along great with his older foster brother and any dog he meets on his walks. He loves a decent stroll everyday and does well on a leash. A walk-along with a couple of tosses of the tennis ball and Buster is ready to settle right in at your feet for a rest.
Buster has lived with the same family since he was a puppy. He came to us because they now have a baby that has medical needs and was allergic to Buster. It is so sad that Buster lost his home through no fault of his own.
Because his family's baby was so allergic, Buster was left outside all the time, isolated and alone. He has been lonely for a very long time. Having become an exclusively outside dog for awhile now, Buster really wants to be inside with his people and we agree! Since he was outside so long, he does not like to be left alone and will remind you that he would be greatly pleased to come back inside when he is done going potty. He will need a few gentle reminders of where to potty as he gets used to his new home.
Buster will do well with a family where his human is around much of the time. He thrives on a gentle touch and good old fashioned togetherness! He also will do best in a home with at least one other calm and well adjusted canine companion. Buster will not do well as an only dog left alone all day. He's suffered through that loneliness for too long already.
Buster is a a good boy in the house and seems to be settling in well. Due to his horrible experience being alone so long, he may take a little time to adjust and settle in. He can be anxious at first that you will leave him as his family did. Once he knows you are his people and he's your pup, he'll do fine and settle right into his new home.
If you are looking for a labby who will give you adoring unconditional love then Buster is your guy!
Buster will do fine with kids but we have no idea about cats so no kitties for Buster Brown at this time.
Buster is up to date on vaccines and neutered.

Hurley 2 adopted!

Hurley is great with other dogs both big and small. He is a submissive boy who loves other dogs. He loves his walks and does fine with a moderate walk or two each day. He is a medium to low energy level dog who doesn't need a ton of exercise but still is a playful boy who can do a nice hike if you want to. So he's the perfect mix of energy, playfulness, and mellow, calmness.

Hurley came to us from a very high kill shelter where he was in danger. When we met Hurley dogs were barking and it was a scary atmosphere for him, yet he wagged his tail and was so pleased to see us. After evaluating Hurley we knew we had a winner and we took him right away.
Hurley will do fine with children though any Lab can knock a toddler over without meaning to. He is completely housebroken and non-destructive when left.

Meet Sarah, a darling 7 year old female yellow Labrador Retriever with a beautiful buttery coat and the sweetest face. This angel will steal your heart so fast.
Sarah was turned into a high kill shelter by her owners who didn't want her anymore. When we heard this and went to meet her, we were shocked that anyone could throw away such a gorgeous and easy going family Labrador. Sarah is the nicest girl and has so much love to give.
Initially she showed signs of neglect which is unsurprising considering the type of person who might throw a beautiful Lab away. She had never been spayed, was in heat, had a bit of an ear issue and was filthy. Now of course she is clean, spayed, and looking lovely.
Sarah is your typical perfect Labrador. She is kind, smart, and wants to please her people. She loves all humans and is great with all dogs. She knows basic commands and wants to make you happy.
Sarah is doing wonderfully in her farmette foster home! She has already made friends with the sheep on the farm and loves the children. However Sarah has been chasing the kitties so no kitties for Sarah. She seems ok with the chickens so long as they are in the coop but we are not sure about her with free ranging chickens given her propensity to chase felines! She has no malice, but simply enjoys a nice chase!
Sarah is a good girl in the house and not destructive. She loves being with her foster family and would love a home with lots of love.
Sarah will do fine with children and other dogs and likes being part of a family. She doesn't want to live her life in a yard isolated from her people. She deserves to be a true family member and she has the heart to do so.
Sarah is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and ready for her forever home. Will it be yours?
Sunny Boy adopted!
Meet Sunny boy, a beautiful purebred male Labrador retriever. The shelter listed sunny as seven years old, but we think he is closer to six. Sunny is medium sized, and beautifully bred and easy going.
This sweet, calm angel is buttery yellow with a thick otter tail and big blocky head. He has the most darling expression to make your heart smile and it perfectly reflects his kind personality.
Sunny really does have the Labrafor temperament. He loves everyone and is wonderful with all dogs.
Sunny was dumped at a high kill loss Angeles County shelter last week by his owners who did not want him anymore. He was very scared and shy at the shelter and very unresponsive until we got him out. He was clearly confused about why he was there.
And his foster home Sunny has shown us to be a very good boy who only wants to please his person and get the occasional pet.
He is 100% housebroken, not destructive in the house, knows his commands, and just wants to please. He's a good boy on the leash and passes other dogs nicely. He is on the submissive side and enjoys being close to his people.
Sunny will do fine in a home with or without another friendly canine companion. He is the kind of dog you could take to work with you or who would like to lay by your feet while you work from home.
He's a good boy in the car and will ride shotgun while you run your errands. He likes to be near his person and he's a good boy where ever you go.
Sunny is wonderful with all dogs but we do not know how he will react to cats. So no homes with kitties for Sunny at this time.
Sunny will do fine with older children, but could knock a toddler over without meaning to.
Sunny is a healthy boy who is up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, and micro chipped. All he needs now is the very best forever home. Will it be yours?

Posey 2 adopted!
Meet Posie, a darling 1-2 year old, yellow female Labrador. This purebred angel is darling youngster and is so full of love!
Posie ended up at a high kill shelter with no one interested in her. We have no idea why as she has been nothing less than perfection in foster!
Posie is a petite little thing at only about 50 lbs. She is still growing but she should only be about 65 pounds when she is full grown which is still a nice smaller size for a Labrador.
She is lovely with all other dogs and is doing beautifully with her Labrador foster brother.
Posie is housebroken and sleeps soundly all night long on a dog bed in her foster parent's bedroom. She's a quiet girl and is on the calm side for a young Lab. She is young though and her new home will need to be certain she gets to dog park, dog beach or to other fun activities she deserves.
Posie walks fabulously on leash, almost never pulling, and is just a joy to walk! She is learning her commands and wants to please. She knows sit and takes treats nicely.
Posie will do her best in a home ready for a younger lab, where she will get exercise, love attention and some basic training. She is a super sweet girl who deserves a fabulous forever home!
Posie will do fine with children but we don't know about cats. So no kitties for this girl. Unfortunately we cannot place any dog in a home with cats if we have no knowledge of their behavior with them. Otherwise kitties are in danger and our dogs are in danger of being returned. We won't do that to a dog or a family. If you have cats, you will need to wait to apply for a dog that is fully cat tested.
Posie is vaccinated and spayed.
Meet Holt, an adorable 4-5 year old chocolate boy who has the nicestly personality and sweetest heart!
Holt is a beautful Chocolate Labby boy who was picked up as a stray. The shelter felt certain someone would come for him due to his being such a very nice boy and so friendly, but no one ever came. We knew we had to help him the second we met him because this fella is just too wonderful!
Holt is great with other dogs and humans. He love to play with his Labby foster brother and he gets on beautifully with dogs in general. He would do find with another friendly and even a playful canine companion.
Holt is learning his commands. He knows sit and is learning down, stay, and others. He really wants to please his humans and it shows. He's easy to train and easy to handle.
Holt is a very good boy in the house. He settles easily and is well behaved. He doesn't mark and has been totally housebroken. He is non-destructive in the house although he shows a propensity for eating flip-flops so please put your flip-flops away. I guess they just seem like fun to him!
Holt is a good boy on his walks. He is still pulling a bit on the leash at first so his new owner will want to use a pinch collar or a gentle leader with him as he learns. He corrects easily and passes other dogs nicely.
Holt loves to eat. He is underweight and it putting on weight now. He may have been on the lose for awhile before the shelter picked him up as he needs to gain a good 10 lbs! Meanwhile if you are not looking, he may steal your snack in his true Labby fashion!!! It's hard for a labby boy to pass up a treat!
Holt is a good boy during the night and sleeps all the way through. In the morning, he goes outside to potty and romp a bit before breakfast. He is a nice family boy.
Holt is a medium energy boy. He needs his daily walks and maybe a dog park trip, beach trip or other play activity. He will love meeting other playful dogs and is a fun guy to take around.
We think he'll do best with some continued light training to be perfect on leash and on his commands. He has a great temperament.
We think he'll do fine with older children too. He seems to like everyone!
We do not know how Holt will do with kitties so not cats for this fella for now.
Holt is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and neutered. All he needs now is the most loving fur-ever home! Wil it be yours?
Meet Sabine, a darling 1 year old, Golden Retriever puppy. This purebred angel is juat a baby and is so full of love!
Sabine was abandoned by her family after having a litter of puppies. We suppose they kept a puppy and got rid of Sabine even though Sabine is a puppy herself. Lucky for her, we scooped her up as soon as we were legally permitted to do so and now she is doing wonderfully in her loving foster home.
Sabine is a petite little thing at only about 50 lbs. She won't grow much more and will stay pocket sized which we think is too adorable!
She is lovely with all other dogs and is doing beautifully with her two Labrador foster brothers who she enjoys playing with and sharing toys with.
Sabine is crate trained and sleeps in her crate the whole night through. She's a quiet girl and is on the calm size for a puppy. She is young though and her new home will need to be certain she gets to dog park, dog beach or to other fun activities she deserves.
Sabine is learning her commands and wants to please. She knows sit and takes treats nicely She is already fully housebroken after just a few days!
Sabine will do her best in a home where she will get plenty of other dog enrichments, walks, attention, and love. Also at her age, she needs training. Her new home will need to work on more commands, leash work and other skills all young dogs must master to be solid citizens.
Sabine will do fine with children but we don't know about cats. So no kitties for this girl. Unfortunately we cannot place any dog in a home with cats if we have no knowledge of their behavior with them. Otherwise kitties are in danger and our dogs are in danger of being returned. We won't do that to a dog or a family. If you have cats, you will need to wait to apply for a dog that is fully cat tested.
Sabine is a heatlhy girl who has been groomed, vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed.
Meet Miranda, a happy, wiggly, and sweet purebred yellow female Labrador of just about 4 years. She has the trademark lab wiggle and tail wag too!
Miranda is a darling pale yellow purebred with a sweet face and equally sweet disposition. She loves everyone and has a nice playful energy about her as she picks up and plays with her toys and brings them to you. In fact she loves to carry soft toys around in her mouth everywhere she goes. She doesn't squeak them, but just loves to carry them with her!
Miranda is great with other dogs. She will go for the ball a bit and loves to just romp around and make friends. And she rides beautifully in the car with other foster labs on outings. She is a really great car rider in general, she just lays down to enjoy the ride.
Miranda is a medium energy girl who enjoys her walks and playtime, but also settles down very nicely in the house. She is a tad overweight at 80 lbs. She will do best at her ideal weight of 70 lbs and is a very healthy girl. As she gets more exercise and into her routine, coupled with good food, she will easily get to her ideal weight.
Miranda came to us from a local shelter. We will never know how such a beautiful girl ended up on the hard shelter floor with no one to claim her.
Miranda will do great in a home with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only. She would like a lot of attention and love. She is currently fostered with two other female labs and they all do great together!
Miranda will need her daily exercise like a good walk or dog park and then will do great settling into the house. She is completely housebroken and has nice manners. She hasn't even tried to get on furniture in her foster home! She settles really well and would enjoy just hanging out with you wherever you are. She is even starting to learn the doggie door in her foster home - good girl!
Miranda has spent some time around a young baby of under a year old and has done great with her, so we do think she would do well in a home with children. But of course we would prefer a home with kids over age 5, as any large breed dog can knock a toddler down.
Miranda is a good girl in the house or car and settles nicely. Her new family will want to supply lots and lots of toys as she loves them so.
This pretty girl is a lovely sweet companion and will bring much joy to that family fortunate enough to adopt her.
Miranda is a healthy girl who is up to date on shots, spayed and microchipped.
Meet Paddington! This is our newest cuddle bear who is just the nicest boy. Paddington is an 8 year old purebred Labrador Retriever. He is jet black with a nice otter tail and he loves his ball.
Did we mention that he loves his ball? Yes, well he does.
Paddington comes to us from a very high kill shelter where he was taken as a stray. He was in danger there and he was not doing well so we got him out, to the vet for some ear treatments and a good exam and then we followed up with a nice grooming. He's feeling much better now and he looks so handsome!
Paddington is a very good boy who is good with other dogs and all humans. He's not particularly playful with other dogs but he sure loves to retrive. Paddi will fetch the ball over and over and never stop. He drops it at your feet and if you don't throw it for him, he'll pick it up and drop it again at your feet until you do. Paddi will retriever until you take the ball away. He is ball-obsessed but once you put the ball away, he's over it and forgets about it.
Paddi is housebroken and uses the doggie door to go outside to potty. He is good in the house and likes to be near you.
Paddington does not like to be left alone outside when he knows you are home. If he knows you are inside, he will bark to come inside until you let him in. He wants to be near you. He is fine outside if you are also gone. But if you are home he wants to come in.
He will do best in a home where someone is arround much of the time or where there is another dog as he really enjoys company and companionship and he also will do great with kids - especially kids who like to throw the ball!
Paddington knows his commands of sit, stay, come, and down. He is also fairly good on leash and passes other dogs nicely. He needs at least 2 good walks a day for exercise.
Paddi is a healthy boy who is up to date on his vaccines, neutered, and micrcohipped.
Lady Bug 2 adopted!
Meet Ladybug! Ladybug is a beautiful purebred yellow female Labrador that is a pale cream colored Lab!
She is a gorgeous girl of about 7-8 years old with the loveliest temperament. Ladybug is on the smaller side at only 65 pounds! She loves her people and is as sweet as they come.
This girl is more than just looks though. She is a sweet, happy Lab who is easy going and settles well in the house, and a playful girl who is a pleasure to be with.
She loves all people, and will sit up in front of you for attention and affection! She is also known to gently stand up on her hind legs and put her front two paws on you if you ignore her - we think it's quite cute. Ladybug just loves every person she meets.
Ladybug is great with all other dogs. She is fostered with two female labs and they all get along great! Ladybug has also spent time with a few small dogs and is just perfect with them too! She is really great with every dog she meets. But no kitties for her as she really enjoys chasing cats way too much.
Ladybug is completely housebroken and sleeps soundly on the floor next to her foster parent's bed all night long. She is well mannered in the house and loves to be anywhere you are. She would love a home where her people are home more often than not. Or she would enjoy going to work with you, if you are so lucky - she is so well mannered, she could go anywhere with you, such as running errands, kids sporting events, coffee shops and more. She loves car rides and is such a calm, good girl in the car.
Ladybug loves her toys - especially soft toys. She has found her favorite toy at her foster home and takes it everywhere with her! She carries it from room to room and sleeps next to it as well. She is also a lover and a cuddler and would love to snuggle with you on the couch while you relax.
She is a medium energy girl, who would love a couple walks a day, a short game of fetch, or even some tug of war with her favorite toy. She doesn't play much with her foster labbie siblings, but she does seem to enjoy their company. We think Ladybug would do well as your one and only or with a doggie companion, but would be happiest in a home where she can spend lots of time with her human family.
Ladybug takes treats very gently and eats her food very well next to her foster siblings with no issues. She would be a great addition to almost any family.
Ladybug has been known to counter surf on the kitchen counters, so important that her new family doesn't leave any food or valuables within reach on the counters. Many Lab families know this behavior very well and this girl is no exception. She can also be a little bit skittish with loud noises, but is becoming more comfortable every day.
Meet Kate, a sleek, black beauty, female Labrador. She's a stunning purebred girl with the darkest jet black coat and warm, burnt sugar eyes. Her beauty cannot be denied!
Kate is just 3 years old and on a mellow side with medium energy when the ball comes out. True to her breed, this girl loves to retrieve and she will bring the ball back to you and give it nicely.
Kate is well behaved, non-destructive, housebroken, and settles beautifully in the house. She is a wonderful indoor companion who loves to be close to you. She adores cuddling with her person and would even like to sleep next to you if she were allowed. Did we mention she loves to give you a kiss now and then as well?
Kete is on the shy side initially. At times when seeing new people, she will growl low and back away. But she is not aggressive at all and warms up quick. She must have had to be afraid at some point and is learning now just how nice people are. Sometimes she will bark at strangers as well. But again, she warms up quick when introduced. For this reason, we feel she is best in an adult home even though she is absolutely perfect with children.
Kate is very good with other dogs but doesn't realy like to play with them. She prefers humans. She may enjoy being an only dog - especially if you are home much of the time. She will also do fine with another dog and would prefer a dog who is not playful but just a mellow companion.
Kate loves her walks on leash but can pull a bit, especially in the beginning. Her new owner will want to work with her on corrections. Kate walks much nicer with a pinch collat. She is a nice walking buddy and loves to be with you whatever you do.
Kate is still coming around in foster. She is less shy and stressed every day and settling nicely. Her new owners will want t give her time to settle into their home and get used to all the smells, sounds, and sights.
Kate is super soft and silky. When you pet her she just loves it. She is quite a lover and has more love to give than you can imagine. She is a wonderful best friend.
Kate is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Mumford, a stunningly handsome and beautifully bred purebred Labrador male. Mumfords sleek jet black coat and burnt sugar eyes make him a sight to behold and his personality makes him one of the nicest dogs around.
Mumford is a 4 - 5 year old male of perfect size and weight. He has lovely conformation with a block head, thick otter tail, cat paws, and a very nice broad skull and stop. He has a nice coat too and is a really good looking boy. Mumford meets the breed standard weight of about 85 lbs.
This fella is a fairly calm dog. He's on the mellow side but can have energy for things like walks and hikes too and he likes the ball and retrieving. He's a great all around dog to take on hikes or walks or dog beach. He walks perfectly on lead and heals, stops, and stays in step.
Mumford is completely housebroken and non-destructive in his foster home. He sleeps through the night and is respectful in the house.
This boy knows "sit" and "down". He is happy to sit for you but promply falls on the floor asking for a belly rub. And he loves to be pet and cuddled.
Mumford has a nice strong otter Labby tail that wags and wags. In true Labby fashion, he lets you know you are his world and he is happy.
Mumford does great with his foster Labby brother but we feel he will do equally well as an only dog. He can have a canine companion or not. He just wants a great home. We don't know about cats though, so no kitties for this big fella.
Mumford deserves a great indoor home where he can be truly loved and adored. He came to us from a high kill shelter and showed signs of neglect. We never want him to experience that again. He deserves much more - especially when you consider his beautiful submissive temperament.
Mumford should do fine with children though we do prefer children over age 6.
Mumford is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. All he needs now is the most loving home.
Meet Olivia, a beatiful, one-year-old female Labrador puppy who is also the mommy of the 9 chocolate Lab puppies we have for adoption. Just a puppy herself, this little gal has done an amazing job a mommy to 9 little cuties and has shown herself to be truly a perfect dog.
Olivia is a purebred chocolate Labrador with a smaller, petite frame. She is a very beautiful girl and has a wonderful, easy-going temperament.
Olivia is playful and has energy, but settles beautifully in the house. She is absolutely wonderful wth all other dogs and all humans. She adores going in the car with her foster family and equally enjoys a walk, romp, or cuddle on the couch. She is a truly lovely family pet.
Olivia is extremely young to have had a litter of pups. We got her and her mate (another chocolate Lab who is since adopted) when Olivia was already very pregnant. In fact she deliverd her litter within 24 hours of us taking posession of her!!! That was cutting it close! Her and her mates owners were overwhelmed with th dogs and their lives at the time and the accidental pregnancy took place without preparation. We have happy the dogs came to us so that we could be certain of the fate of all the babies and their mom.
Olivia has shown us that she is a tolerant patient dog who really loves humans and other dogs. She never had a problem with her babies being handled of the other foster dogs being near. Now that that puppies are old enough to go to new homes, it's time for Olivia - just a puppy herself - to fine her forever home as well.
Olivia will need to wait about 7 weeks until she can be spayed. Her new owners can bring her to our vet for spay at our expense or they may use their own veterinarian at their expense. It is a condition of the adoption that Olivia be spayed and proof given to us.
Olivia is houseborken and knows her basic commands. She is good on the leash, wonderful in the house, and good with kids and all humans. She would love a home where someone is around much of the time, or where there is another younger playful friendly dog for company. She has never been an only dog.
Oliva is not tested with cats, so no kitties for this angel.
She will need to be given her rabies vaccination at spay as well as get her microchip.
There are few young puppies of a year with this mild temperament. Olivia is exceptional!
Chocolate Puppies adopted!
Meet our 9 delicious chocolate darlings! These little purebred Labrador bunnies will be 8 weeks old and permitted to go to new home on May 30.
Our puppies came from heaven to us when we rescued their mommy who was already extremely pregnant. Their daddy, also a chocolate purebred Labrador, was adopted right away. Their mommy Olivia, will be available for adoption shortly as well. She is a puppy herself at only a year of age. Very sad that her owners allowed her to get pregnant too young, but they didn't spay and neuter quickly enough and the pregnancy was an accident.
The puppies consist of 5 little girls and 4 little boys. We will be lining up approved families to meet and take their puppy home on the 30th of this month.
Puppies are a huge commitment. We expect at least one person to be home most of the time in a new puppy home as puppies cannot be expected to be alone or outside all day. New owners must have a crate to start with and must consider that the crate size will change over time. Consider a cat carrier to start perhaps or borrow one until puppy is a little bigger.
Puppies will have had worming and vaccine prior to adoption. They will need two more rounds of vaccine before they can go into the outside world or meet other dogs. Parvo and Distemper will kill a puppy and they will NOT have adequate protection from this life-threatening illnesses until they have recieved ALL of their puppy shots. Shots are given 3 weeks apart and your veterinarian will explain more to you about immunizations.
The puppies will go out on a spay/neuter waiver requiring a signed agreement by the adopter. Adopters must spay and neuter their puppy at their expense by 6 months and provide proof to us of same. A spay/neuter deposit will be taken and will be refunded upon providing proof of sterilization.
Puppies cry, destroy, chew, and basically cause all manner of annoyance and destruction. They are quite a bother even though they are adorable. Entering into puppy ownership should not be taken lightly. Puppies will wake you up in the middle of the night to go out, they will eat your shoes, they will potty everywhere, they will teethe and bite you through your skin over and over with their little needle teeth. In a nutshell, one must accept that God made puppies cute for a reason because otherwise no one would have one! They can be that difficult!
We want our puppy adopters to realize how hard owning a puppy can be. The first 6 weeks the puppy is with you, they cannot go anywhere without being exposed to disease. This means no neighborhood walks, or dog park, or anywhere where other dogs have been. It also means housebreaking and crating and buying tons and tons of chew toys, bully sticks, and other items. And above all, it means hiding your shoes!
Puppies cannot go to home with little children. Lab puppies are insanely mouthy and remain so for up to 2 years. They will "bite" everyone and little kids tend to get hurt. This is more so when the dog reaches 7-8 months up to 2 years when kids tell mommy they were bitten when a Lab simply mouthed them and left a red mark. We can't put our puppies in situations where they might be returned down the road.
If you have been approved to adopt and you feel you are ready to take on a life long commitment which starts with a very time consuming puppy, let us know!
You will be required to adopt and take your puppy home on May 30th at our adoption puppy day!
Bunny Love adopted!
Meet Bunny Love, a happy, wiggly, and sweet purebred yellow female Labrador of just about 4 years. This beauty has a light cream colored coat and is as soft as butter! She is a nice size at about 75 pounds.
Bunny Love came to us from a high kill shelter. Thank goodness our volunteer scooped her up because we quickly learned she had completely torn her ACL and required surgery. We immediately got Bunny Love to our best orthopedic vet and had her TPLO surgery completed. Bunny love has recovered beautifully and is now completely healed! She had her final checkup with her surgeon and was given the go ahead for normal exercise.
Bunny Love is great with other dogs and loves to play with them. She would really love a home with another dog and playtime with other dogs regularly. She will go for the ball a bit and loves to just romp around and make friends. And she rides beautifully in the car.
Bunny Love is a medium energy girl who enjoys her walks and playtime, but also settles down very nicely in the house after her exercise. She would love a long walk, a hike, playtime with other dogs or a chance to swim each and every day.
Bunny will do best in a home with another dog as she just loves other dogs so much. She is great with all other dogs she meets. She also loves all people and LOVES attention and affection from everyone she meets. A home where her people are around more often would be great for her as she really loves her people and any time she can spend with them. She wants all the attention she can get.
Bunny Love will do well with children, but she can be mouthy when she is playing and asking for attention, and can easily knock a child down when she gets excited, so children over age 7 would be best for her.
She is a well mannered girl, and wants to please her person, but doesn't have much training. She would love to do some obedience training with her family so she can learn her basic commands. She would even enjoy a doggie obedience class. Bunny pulls a bit on leash, so does best with a training collar and some reminders from her person to walk with you, not ahead of you - silly girl.
We don't know how Bunny Love will do with cats, so no kitties for her at this time.
Bunny Love is completely housebroken. She does pretty well when left, but has been known to chew up shoes that are left by the front door so her new family will want to make sure all shoes are put away around Bunny. She really is a good girl in the house and car and settles nicely. Her new family will want to supply lots and lots of toys and chew toys like nylabones, rawhides, and bully sticks to keep her amused.
Bunny Love is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and completely healed from her TPLO surgery. Our surgeons and vets have both cleared her to find her forever family.
This pretty girl is a lovely sweet companion and will bring much joy to that family fortunate enough to adopt her.
Meet Kelly, a sweet and very shy, petite Labrador Retriever female of just about one year. This little cuite is quite uniqu and needs a special home to go with her special heart.
Kelly is a petite sized girl with a buttery yellow coat and burnt sugar eyes. She is lovely and sweet and very submissive. Kelly is extremely shy and timid and will need a home ready to be patient with her as she comes out of her shell.
Kelly was found on the streets hungry, dirty, and petrified. She was taken in by good people who worked hard to find her owners even though she seemed like a dog that had been on her own for quite a while. When all efforts were exhausted, her finders contacted us.
Kelly is only about a year or so and a purebred Labrador. She is very loving and absolutely loves other dogs. She enjoys playing with the three other Labradors she is fostered with and is submissive and happy around them. She is fostered with 2 males and 1 other female.
Kelly is also wonderful with her foster dad. It's taken her a bit to warm up as she clearly hasn't been around that many humans in her life and is learning to trust and be close to people.
Kelly is housebroken and sleeps the night through. She is non-destructive and has a nice calm temperament except during play. When she plays she is happy and fun and truly loves romping with the other dogs. She will even cuddle with the other dogs to be close.
Kelly will need a home without little kids and where she can really take the time she needs to break out of her extreme shyness and timidity. She is good on leash and loves other dogs, so we recommend a home with at least one other playful and well balanced dog for her to have as a friend by her side as she goes through her transition.
Kelly's new owners have to be committed to her shyness and working with her without rushing her or pressuring her. She really needs a gentle hand and a lot of love. She's easy to handle but requires time and patience. Her new home shoud be a more low-key environment and not one with tons of comings and goings and noise - at least for now.
Kelly will do beatifully with another happy and friendly canine. She tends to walk slowly on leash but that is because she is shy. In time she will walk happier and faster.
Kelly is not much of a barker but recently learned to bark when people walk by the house outside the fence. Her foster brother taught her that and she is doing a great job alerting when folks come by. What a good girl!
Kelly has so much to offer to the right owners. Someone who is home much of the time is ideal.
She is spayed, up to date on vacccines and microchipped.
If you feel you can be patient, loving, and truly want to help a young beautiful dog in need, this may be the one for you. Kelly is a true rescue and you can be part of it. She is a diamond in the rough, just waiting for you to help her shine.
Awe what a sweetie! Meet Margaret, an adorable purebred English Labrador female who is so darling and sweet and just pure joy to have around.
This gorgeous girl is a black female lab of about 7 years old. She is a nice size at about 75 pounds a has a beautiful black coat.
Margaret came to us from a local shelter. We were shocked to see such a lovely girl stuck in a shelter with no family to claim her. Our volunteer quickly got her out of the shelter and she became our newest addition to the IndiLab family!
Maragaret is a calm and lovely houseguest. She likes to be near her person and likes other dogs too. She is fostered with a male lab and the two get along beautifully. She loves to hang out with him, and really enjoys her walks with him as well.
Margaret is completely housebroken and non destructive when left. She is very well mannered in the home not even getting up on the furniture at all. She loves attention from her person and will sit up in front of you with her "pet me" eyes which you will fall for every time!
Margaret is spunky and playful when she has a toy or a ball to chase - or even a soccer ball to toss around to herself - it's really adorable to watch her play all on her own. She enjoys carrying a ball or toy around in her mouth whenever possible - its very cute.
Margaret is lovely to walk on leash - she rarely pulls, so is really a pleasure. She walks right with you. She is more of a mosier than a sprinter and enjoys smelling, smiling, wiggling and looking cute. She would love a couple walks a day and a little play time in the backyard too. She's a perfect mix of calm energy in the home and playful silliness outside.
Margaret will do great as your one and only or with another dog. She really is happy either way. She has not been cat tested so no kitties for her in her new home at this time.
Margaret is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Maxton, a gentle 8 year old purebred chocolate male Labrador with a shiny coat and soulful eyes.
Maxton is wonderful with all other dogs, all people and children too. Maxton came to us from a family that went through a divorce and sadly no one could keep Maxton. Luckily he found Indilab and we are happy to help this wonderful boy find a new forever home.
Maxton was raised with young toddlers and lived with a small dog too, so he has a proven history of being great around kids and all other dogs both big and small. He's a submissive boy who cares not about being top dog and really just wants to be friends.
This super mellow guy is very easy going. He is a medium to lower energy Lab who is just very easy to have around. He loves his daily walks, but doesn't require anything more. He would love 1-2 walks a day, perhaps a trip to the beach, but he would also be perfectly fine if you skipped his walk for a day or two.
Maxton is completely housebroken and non-destructive when left. He does well around people of all ages, young kids, adults and even the elderly. Maxton walks beautifully on leash - never pulling - and he passes other dogs perfectly! What a joy he is to walk! He is well trained as well - he knows all his commands of sit, down, stay and more. This boy is almost perfection!
Maxton has a super shiny gorgeous chocolate coat. He is a larger boy at about 95 pounds, but he is not overweight at all and he is such a gentle boy - he truly is a gentle giant.
Maxton takes treats so gently and is so calm and well mannered with everyone he meets. You can take him anywhere with you.
Maxton would do well as your one and only or with another doggie companion. He is fostered with another male Labrador and the two get along very well. He is not interested in playing with other dogs, and doesn't seem to need the company of another dog, so really would do well in any family.
Maxton sleeps soundly in his foster parents bedroom all through the night. This sad boy whined for the first 24 hours as he really missed his family, but was consoled by snuggling up close with his foster mom. But Max has now adjusted well and still loves to snuggle up next to his person. He would love a home where he can be with his family more often than not. He could go to work with you if you allow, or just hang out with you around the house if you are home during the day.
Maxton is a prize. His new family will get just the best ever Labrador.
Maxton is neutered and up to date on vaccines. He is a healthy boy who now just needs a home and a family to call his own.
Lucy 2 adopted!
Meet Lucy! She is a sweetheart of a black female labbie girl. She is a 5 year old super sweet girl at a perfect weight of about 70 pounds.
Lucy is a very special girl. She is a calm loving girl who wants to be by your side and give you gentle kisses! Her temperament is absolutely wonderful - happy, gentle, calm, and loving. She is just absolutely perfect. This girl would actually make a great therapy dog as she loves every person she meets. She has the trademark labbie temperament - wiggling for anyone who will give her pets!
Lucy found herself at a local shelter - poor girl. Luckily she was rescued by a good samaritan who was worried about her fate. That good Samaritan then called us to help her find the best forever home.
Lucy is very good with other dogs big and small. She is fostered with two female Labs and they all get along great. Lucy is not too playful with other dogs, but she does great with them.
Lucy will do well as your one and only or as a doggie companion to another friendly dog. She would also do well as your one and only though she will not do well as an only dog left alone for long hours. She isn't used to being completely alone all day without a friend and would really love family she can spend lots of time with.
Lucy loves her walks and is pretty good on the leash though at times she can pull just a bit. She takes correction very well and walks nicely. She passes other dogs nicely too and likes to greet people with her smile and wag. Lucy also enjoys playing fetch and would love a family who will play fetch with her each week.
Lucy is great in the car as well. She will hop right in on her own and just lay down calmly for the ride. She would love to go run errands with you, or join you on carpool runs with the kids.
Lucy settles beautifully in the house and is non destructive. She loves to lie down at your feet or on her bed and is a very calm girl. Overall, she is a low to medium energy girl. She wants nothing more than to be with her person often. Lucy takes treats very gently, and is just such a special, sweet, mellow girl. She knows her commands of sit, down and come. She is a smart girl and gentle as well - she would do well with people of all ages, young kids, adults and the elderly. She is not mouthy nor is she jumpy so she is a lovely girl to take everywhere with you.
Lucy would love a home where her people are home more often than not or where she can go to work with you as she really enjoys being with her person.
This girl is pure pleasure and the epitome of sweetness. She is spayed, healthy, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
My name is Goliath and I am looking for a furever family that loves a young happy Golden Retriever to run and play with. I was rescued from an inland shelter who found me wandering the streets and I was lucky enough to find the nice people at Indilabrescue to take me out of that terrible place.
I am a tall boy but very lean and with a handsome golden coat. I have beautiful eyes that love to stare into yours while I rest my head in your lap. I know you will love me at first sight. My foster Dad says I can only go if I get a loving family who will know what a prize I am.
Goliath is a stunningly handsome 3-4 year-old purebred Golden Retriever male with the typical soft golden coat. He is a beautiful dog and is trim and could actually gain a few pounds if put on a healthy well-rounded diet. He attracts attention wherever he goes with his looks. He loves everyone and is eager to meet and greet people.
This boy is sweet and mellow and easy going. He is really smart – knows “sit” and “shake” and learns quickly when there is something he should not do. He's a great boy in the house, too and follows his foster Dad everywhere. He rides beautifully in the car - even sitting right next to his other lab brothers. He cannot wait to go for a walk and does not pull on the leash.
Goliath loves to chase a ball in the yard. He eagerly explores and smells all the new scents at the dog park or in the backyard at his foster home. He greets other dogs well and loves to run with them at the dog park.
It's quite hard to imagine such a sweetheart on the streets! This boy is about 3 or 4 years old and will do great with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only. He gets on beautifully with his two energetic brother labs and is friendly with other dogs at the dog park. He would do great on hikes and jogs. He is a high energy boy and loves a walk any time of day.
Goliath is a snuggle bunny who loves his humans and likes to be close. He loves to be petted and will lick your hands and face to give you kisses. He settles down nicely in the house. He will happily sleep all night but really wants to come into your bedroom and be near where you are. He imagines he is a lapdog and loves to cuddle.
Goliath shows almost no interest in cats on walks but we have not really tested him so no kitties for her at this time.
He is a typical large Golden who may knock toddlers down. We think he will do fine with kids over 7 who are respectful of dogs.
Goliath is a healthy boy and is microchipped, neutered, up to date on vaccines, and current on flea control.
Jack Gold adopted!
Meet Jack, a stunningly handsome 5 year old purebred English Cream Golden Retriever. He is a light cream/almost white color and about 85 lbs with a giant blocky head to die for. We do not think they come more beautiful than this yummy boy.
Jack came to us from the only owner he's every known. Unfortunately that owner fell very ill and knew that he was close to passing away. He knew he needed to find a new loving home for Jack before he was gone and that's when Jack joined the Indilab family. He’s been with his current foster family for about 2 months.
This easy-going boy loves all people. He is a young boy at age 5 so does need his daily exercise of course, but he settles nicely in the house.
Jack is a super sweet boy who is learning to walk nicely on the leash with a pinch collar. He needs reminders not to pull, and to walk beside his person. Jack gets along beautifully with is foster sister a 14 year old female Lab. He really loves his walks. He follows his foster parents around the house, and is content to lay at their feet while they read or work. He’s also a good snuggler. Jack is good in the car too and enjoys going for car rides. He will simply lay down and enjoy the ride.
Jack is completely housebroken and knows how to use the doggie door as well! He is non-destructive when left. He doesn’t counter-surf, and doesn’t even jump up on couches or beds. He loves sleeping in his dog bed at the foot of the bed of his foster parents. During the day, he can often be found sunning himself in the yard, or enjoying the cool-night air on the patio after sunset.
Jack enjoys his dog toys, dog bones, and antlers, although the soft, squeaky toys don't seem to last long with him. He seems to think it's more fun to pull the stuffing out and find the squeaker - silly boy.
Jack is a good boy on the leash and walks perfectly. However he needs to work on passing other dogs on walks and on doggie socialization. Although he is great in the house with his foster-sister, he gets anxious around other dogs he doesn't know. He can react negatively to other dogs at times and so he is best as an only dog or in a home where he won't be going to dog park or dog beach. His foster family has been working with him with the help of a behaviorist/trainer, but Jack will need a family committed to further training if they intend to have him go to dog-parks and to interact with other dogs. If his forever family doesn't frequent dog parks, he's perfect as in. But he will need to continue his leash manners passing other dogs.
Jack does not do well with kitties even though he would look so darn cute with a kitten snuggled up to him. He will chase them and bark so no kitties for Jack.
Jack is healthy, recently-neutered, up to date on vaccines and now ready for his forever home.
Meet Lampy, a shiny jet black purebred Labrador male who is extremly special. Lampy is 7 years old, wonderfuly sweet and calm, and a the perfect addition to most any family. He's perfect with dogs and cats and is an all around total love bug!
Lampy came to us from an owner who truly loved him but was having some serious difficulties in her life. By the time Lampy was finally turned in to us, both he and his owner were living in her car. It began to become apparent to Lampy's mom, that she just could not get herself on track and keep her boy as well. She wanted what was best for him and so here he is with us.
Lampy was raised about children and for the last few years prior to his mom's difficulty, he lived with several other dogs as well. He is absolutely wonderful with all dogs and all humans and is a real Labrador in this regard. He has absolutely no aggressiveness and has a heart of Labby gold.
Lampy might make a wonderful therapy dog as he is so calm and easy going. He would also make a wonderful family dog who adores his people.
Lampy will do fine with or without other dogs in the home. He is a more mellow kid and doesn't need to play all day but does enjoy canine company. So either will work for him. He will do fine with cats too as he is so easy going. If you have kitties, this boy might be the one.
Lampy has had a recent sad go of it and deserves the best home! He is so sweet and so good.
Lampy is wonderful on leash and passes other dogs nicely. He knows his commands and is completely housebroken and non-destructive in the house. He would love a home where he can spend time cuddling with his owners and where he will be able to have both indoor and outdoor access. He should not be left in a yard all day as we want more for him than that.
Lampy is about as good as a Labrador Retriever can get and embodies those qualities that make the Lab the number one most popular dog in the United States - he is loyal, calm, non-aggressive, wants to please, and loves everyone. Labs are the best and they don't come any better than this boy.
Lampy is up to date on vaccines and neutered. All he needs now is the best forever home. Will it be yours?
