Meet QQ! The handsomest golden guy EVER! This guy is pure golden sweetness and just wants a family to call his very own. He is one true creampuff. Loving, easy, mellow, kind, and perfect in every way.
QQ is 6-7 years old we think and is a medium to smaller sized purebred Golden Retriever. He has the loveliest smile that never goes away and an even lovelier personality.
We think this special boy would be ideally suited for therapy work if you so desire. He is that gentle.
QQ was found as a homeless stray on the streets and lovingly nursed back to health by our rescue partner. For a dog who was dealth a pretty cruel hand in life, QQ really is perfect in every way - calm, loving, patient and beautiful too.
QQ is amazing on a leash, passing other dogs nicely. He is friendly and has absolutely no aggression. He loves his walks and getting out with his person. He enjoys saying hello to any man, woman, child, dog or cat that he sees. He is just a good guy with a good heart.
QQ has great house manners and is easy in the home. He's also a great watchdog!!!! He will bark to alert you that someone is at the door! Of coures he will never attack an intruder except maybe with kisses.
He is houseborken and crate trained. He sits and shakes on command, but really just wants to lay his head in your lap and enjoy a good ear rub. He has coat that is so soft and silky that you just want to nuzzle into him and whisper all your troubles away. He'd love to snuggle next to you on the couch or bed, but understands if you don't like that and waits to be invited. What a gentleman.
QQ is being fostered with three other dogs and gets along famously with them. He has the wisdom to know that he is the newest member of the pack and he hangs back to wait for meals and treats and seems to be more of a follower than a leader. He's quite playful with other playful dogs, and it's a beautiful sight to see him leaping across the yard, happy to have space to run. He loves his tennis balls, but shares nicely. A good marrow bone is great entertainment as well. He's just really good at entertaining himself if you are busy. QQ is low key and only wants a belly rub and a little walk or off leash romp to make him happy.
QQ is great in the car and is so well mannered that he is welcome anywhere. His foster mom and dad are loving having him as a house guest! Despite all past horrors, this boy is as calm and settled as they come. With some additional exposure and training, he most likely would enjoy therapy dog visits. He has a lot of love to give and share.
QQ can make your dreams come true and you can make his come true as well. This treasure deserves only the best of the best homes out there. And she is well worth it. Her life up until not long ago wasn't the greatest. And it should have been all along.
QQ is a healthy guy who is neutered, microchpped and up to date on vaccines.

Chi Chi adopted!
Lovingly sponsored by Kennth Bank
Awe what a sweetie! Meet Chi Chi, an adorable purebred English Labrador female who is so darling and sweet and just pure joy to have around.
This gorgous girl is a Fox Red which is not so common and she wears it well! Just beautiful. She has a nice bocky head for a female and she is a stocky girl with one of the nicest otter tails God ever made. She's a larger female at about 85 - 90 lbs and is as mellow as mellow can be.
Chi Chi is about 7 years old. She is calm as they come and a lovely houseguest. She likes to be near her person and loves other dogs She is completely enjoying her foster home where she is fostered with 5 other Labradors. She gets on beautifully with them all and enjoys occasionally engaging in play and friskiness.
Chi Chi is completely housebroken and uses the doggie door. Her new owners will need to introduce her to their doggie door so she knows where it is. She is mostly disinterested in kitties but it she is feeling particularly frisky she will give them 2 good loud "woof woofs" and stare at them until she lays down. It's pretty cute.
Chi Chi loves food. She has a tendency to be on the chunky side so it's important to limit her food intack to the typical 2-3 cups of GRAIN FREE food (or raw if you prefer) and then keep treats to a minimum. She will make sad cute faces at you unitl you cave in, so be prepared with banana slices, carrots and string beans becuase she will break you heart convincing you she is starving to death.
Chi Chi is perfect on leash but doesn't even need one. She walks right with you. She is more of a mosier than a sprinter and enjoys smelling, smiling, wiggling and looking cute. She could do with 2 20-minute walks a day or a trip to dog park. She's super easy.
We did not notice, nor are their any syptoms of arthritis in this girl. She walks great and seems quite limber. She is just more couch potato than athlete.
Watching movies on the floor with Chi Chi is fun. She makes a great body pillow. She loves tummy rubs, ear rubs, carrying toys around and kissing other dogs. She is a gem.
Chi Chi will do great wtih children. She is so calm and easy that she can work even for tiny toddlers. Our only concern is she takes treats roughly. It's an easy fix with adults but dogs tend to take advantage of kids with snacks. So although she will be gentle as a lamb with a baby on the floor, that tends to be over-ridden by her rough treat taking. However depending on the family, her foster mom is open to discussion on the matter concerning kids under 7. She does love the little kids though!
Though she is 6-7 years old, she is still young enough to certify for therapy work and she will pass with flying colors. If you are thinking you would like to have a therapy dog, Chi would be perfect.
Chi Chi is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
If you have already been approved to adopt via your homecheck, please feel free to email Chi Chi's foster mom Donna at email@example.com
Kerri Ann adopted!
Lovingly sponsored by Susie Minier and Family Lovingly sponsored by Gail Hammerschmidt Lovingly sponsored by Kathryn Waer Lovingly sponsored by Chris Lahoda Lovingly sponsored by Shannon Larrabee Lovingly sponsored by Leigh Flores
Meet sweet Kerri Ann, a very pretty fox red purebred Labrador. This female Lab is 4 years old and very sweet.
Kerri Ann is extremely adorable and loving and was absolutely petrified in the loud high kill shelter where we found her shivering in the back of the kennel. At first we did not know what kind of dog she was but our volunteer after watching for awhile could see she was a Labrador. One she got a glimpse of her tail and ears, we knew for sure and a few days later when it was legally allowed, we went back and brought her home.
This frightened girl took an entire day to even move off her bed! But now, she is over that shelter shock and the wagging and wiggling we love to see in our Labbies is there in abundance as it should be!
Kerri Ann is a very pretty girl with a gorgeous color. Fox Reds are not all that common and they are certainly a gorgeous variety of yellow. She is a medium sized girl and maybe just a little underweight. With good nutrition and a loving home, her coat will be shiny and she'll be the envy of the neighborhood in no time.
Kerri Ann is very calm and mellow in the house. But she is quite playful oustide and even has some good energy for walks, hikes and jogs! She is not a barker or chewer and is completely non-destructive so far as we can tell. She is totally housebroken too and she knows her commands. At one point somoene did love her a lot and did take the time to teach her a few things.
Kerri Ann is just lovely on the leash. She walks with you and does not pull. There are times we know she would love to run but she calmly waits. She will fully enjoy off leash hikes once she is bonded to her new person or family.
Because she came to us so scared and shy, we think going to a home with a lot of small children and their friends for playdates would be overwhelming for her right now. We do think she would do beautiful with children once the adoption days and adjustment period is long over. Still for now, no little children under age 8 and no ultra busy, full of noisy kid, households. We want her to have a home where she can decompress. Dog savvy gentle kids over 8 would be fine for her.
Kerri Ann loves her doggie bed and in the house when you are busy, she will go lay on it quietly. She also sleeps on her bed the whole night through. We think her new owners should provide a couple nice soft doggie beds and maybe a quality orthopedic bedroom bed for her so she can lounge in any room in the house like a queen!
Kerri Ann is just a perfect peach of a girl. She will love her new family and will be the best companion.
She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.

This little girl is Melon! Melon is a darling petite purebred English Cream Golden Retriever. She is just 40 lbs and 2 years old and she is the sweetest little girl.
Melon was originally found as a stray dog in front of a supermarket. She has no microchip and no one claimed her after months of flyers and advertizing. Hard to believe! She was rescued by a kind heart and eventually made her way to us where we are so honored to have her.
This little girl is wonderful with all people and dogs. Sometimes she can be a little timid with other dogs at first but she loves them and likes to play. She is also quite good with cats unless she is in a playful mood and decides to chase them. She won't hurt a cat though.
She loves attention from humans and will try to be close to you all the time to get your love. She loves kids especially and loves them petting her and giving her tons of love.
She will bark at you to get you to pet her or when it's time to eat to remind you to feed her. She is very smart!
Melon is excellent on the leash once you get going. At first she may pull a bit out of excitement but she settles in well and in nice to walk. She passes other dog nicely too!
Melon is a great candidate for dog park or dog beach as she is bompproof with other dogs and she enjoys play time. She is great at sharing toys too and has no issues with food.
Melon knows her commands of Sit, Wait, Shake and is learning others. She is housebroken and knows how to use a doggie door.
Melon is a not destructive and is great in the house. However all young dogs make mistakes and she may have a potty accident or may chew something she shouldn't. That is what dogs do. And this is a young dog too. There are not such things at perfect doggies. They all make mistakes! In this case, we think Melon is a very good girl and need a home committed to a young dog.
Melon is a young girl who will need her exercise each day and who thrives on human and dog interaction. She will do best in a home that has the time for a young Retriever and not somewhere where she will be in a yard alone all day. This is a household companion who wants to be by your side all the time and who loves to live lives. She really deserves just the best home!
This little girl is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. All that's needed now is the very best home.
If you are not fully approved to adopt, you will not hear back from us as young retrievers like Melon tend to get quite a bit of attention. We will choose a family ideally suited for her and families who are approved and waiting will be given priorty.

Psst, over here, shh, they think I am a retriever. Don't tell anyone but I am actually an adorable black and white Havanese or Havaness mix. That means I'm cute, wiggly, and partially hypoallergenic. It also means I'll steel your heart away in seconds flat so watch out! Do you think you can handle 18 pounds of adorable?
I was lost for a long time and finally a human helped me. I am about a year and a half old. I love my foster home here in foster care, love the other dogs - even the big ones!, and I love being in someone's lap even more. I can run with the big guys or the little guys becuase that's how I roll!
My fur is a little shorter than normal since I was shaved when I was found. It's coming in pretty like me don't you think?
My rescuers named me Noel and I love having a name and a human to call me. I have very nice house manners, I am house trained, and my eating manners are also excellent. All the dogs here in foster care eat at the same time with no arguments.
I love to sleep in my moms bed sometimes because I'm such a cuddler, but when she says "no", I go back to my own bed right next to hers. I like to please my person!
Although I am not a retriever I can hold my own by running under their legs. My weight is about 18lbs which is absolutely as perfect as I am. If you have room in your heart and promise to love me furever I could be yours.
I walk nicely on a leash but would love to go to a class with you so I will have even better manners. And if you have a tree I would love to chase the squirrels up to the very top. I do not bark, I can't but I do try, no competition for the big dogs.
Please bring me home as a Valentine, I look fabulous in red.
I am spayed, and up to date on vaccines.
Please be sure to complete an application to adopt and then you can contact my friend at email@example.com
Presenting Walt, a young 2 year old gorgeous purebred male Labrador. Walt is a deep dark chocolate with perfect conformation and a nice block head. He is really a beautiful purebred Labrador. Walt is a perfect 70 lbs and is in fabulous shape.
This puppy man is still a youngster at only 2 years. He has a friendly happy disposition and really loves to play and walk and especially loves to go on jogs.
Walt could do with some training - typical for a young Labrador. He has a tendency to jump when he is excited and he will pull on a leash as he loves to get going on his walk. These are easy fixes through routine and reminders. A nice obedience class would be perfect for him after he is settled into his new home.
Walt is slightly on the full-of-himself side having just been neutered. But he is already calming down and behaving well.
This extremely healthy, young Labrador will need lots of daily exercise. He should do a good jog or long walk everyday and would love hikes or jogs on the weekends. He is perfect for an active family or person and a great buddy.
Walt settles beautifully in the house once he has had his exercise. But remember, at 2 years old he is really JUST beginning to be an adult since Labs are puppies for 2 full years - so he cannot be expected to settle nicely without his exercise first!
Walt is a real show stopper in the looks department. Most of the Indi volunteers were just floored by his beauty. He really is the kind of dog everyone comments on. What a gorgeous well bred Lab he is. To look at this beauty we cannot help but wonder how he ended up in the shelter.
Walt was found by a family who kept him a couple of weeks before turning him over to the shelter. We find ourselves wondering if his owners would have been found had this family turned him in in a more timely manner. Sadly that opportunity is lost now so we feel lucky to have Walt in our care so a wonderful home can be found for this deserving boy.
Walt seems to like kids, but because he is young and active, he will be too much for toddlers. We would consider placing him with older children provided mom and dad can commit to the time required to own a young active Labrador.
Walt will do best as an only dog or with a female friendly companion for company. And he probably would do best with a dog closer to his age or at least a dog younger than age 6 or so.
He will do his best with a family committed to exercise with their Lab every day and where someone loves a very loving dog who loves to be by your side and lay at your feet.
Walt is crate trained and likes his crate. He settled nicely inside and sleeps the whole night through without a peep.
He loves his toys too and more than anything, loves his walks and jogs. Once you get going with him a bit he walks very nicely with you.
This is a very happy Lab adolescent. With a good committed home he will grow up into a wonderful adult. Though he is active now, his temperament suggests he will be a calmer boy in the next year or so as he matures.
We do not know how Walt would do with kitties so we will not consider him for homes with cats at this time.
Walt is healthy, neutered, wormed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
If you feel this gorgeous studly youngster is right for you, please be sure you have been homechecked and approved and then follow up with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Meet Gabriel! Oh this guy is a real find! He is a happy, sweet, gorgeous boy with no dew claws so he is likely an AKC purebred Black lab of 4-5 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 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 too hard to resist for any of us.
This boy is about 100 pounds with a gorgeous face & droopy jowels. And he is NOT fat. He is just a big GENLE 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. He is pure perfection perfect for toddlers and even kitties.
Gabriel 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.
Gabriel is a mostly mellow boy on the calmer side who loves to hang out with other dogs. He would make a great companion to another doggie, or would do well as your one and only boy. He is fostered with another male Lab and the two get along great! He really adores other dogs and has a nice degree of playfulness too. He and his foster brother, another male Labrador, will play bow and chase each other. He is really a happy guy.
Gabriel, 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 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.
Even though this guy is big boy at 100 pounds, we believe he would do great with kids of all ages including toddlers due to his gentleness. Although keep in mind that any big dog could knock a toddler down.
Gabriel also does well around kitties - he really doesn't care about them at all, and will often ignore them, so he would be a good choice for a family with cats.
Gabriel is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
If you think you can provide a great home for this wonderful boy, please submit an application to adopt and send an email to IndiLabGirl@gmail.com
Meet Lilly, a happy, wiggly, and sweet purebred yellow female Labrador of just about 3-4 years.
Lilly 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.
Lilly is great with other dogs and likes to go to dog park. 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.
Lilly 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.
Lilly came to us from the highest kill shelter in all of California. Her life was in immediate danger when we found her and she had only just arrived. So it was shear luck we were able to save her life. This is hard to even imagine because of how beautiful and lovely this girl is. Lilly came to us from Kern County where there are many, many breeders and an enormous number of dogs are euthanized every year due to overpopulation. This poor girl was almost one of them.
Lilly 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.
Lilly is way too curious about kitties to be placed with them so no cats for Lilly.
Lilly 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. But she is still young so she must have her daily exercise.
She can be pretty mouthy when playing with toys she must be supervised playing with children. And only older children over age 8 will be considered. She is not toy possessive and you can easily take things from her, but when being playful with a toy or bone, she is not as aware of her mouthiness as she should be. This is common with Labs and not a problem so long as her new owners are aware.
Lilly is a good girl in the house or car and settles nicely. Her new family will want to supply lots and lots of toys and chewy toys like nylabones, rawhides, and bully sticks to keep her amused.
This pretty girl is a lovely sweet companion and will bring much joy to that family fortunate enough to adopt her.
Lilly is a healthy girl who is up to date on shots, and spayed.
If you think this girl is right for you, please be sure to complete an application and follow up with an email to email@example.com
Ahhh! This is Romeo, a really handsome purebred male Labrador of 5 years. This boy is a really well bred purebred with excellent comformation and perfect temperament. He's the cream of the crop.
Romeo is of perfect size for a male Labrador at 65 lbs. Often now days, we see Lab much, much bigger, but this boy is right where he should be for the breed standard and is such a perfect size. He also has a gorgeous head and sweet expression.
Romeo has a gorgeous thick black coat and a touch of grey just under his chin that makes him look even cuter than he already is. This boy is darling.
Romeo came to us when his family lost their home and were forced to give up their dogs. He was taken to a local Labrador breeder who contacted us to tell us of Romeo's plight. The day our volunteer met Romeo there was no question of how wonderful this boy is and he came home with us that day.
Romeo is a calm and loving boy. He has just the best easy going personality and takes just about everything in stride. He loves to be with his person and loves riding in the car. And with his temperament you can take Romeo just about anywhere.
Romeo is very good with all other dogs as well. He's not a crazy playful guy but he enjoys their company quite a lot.
Romeo will do fine in a home with another friendly canine companion - especially if he is to be alone all day. He really doesn't love being totally alone so a friend would be nice. He's not really a dog to leave in the back yard all day by himself.
This boy is really a best friend. He wants to be part of a family and close to his people. He is a very calm boy in the house but has plenty of spunk for dog park, good walks, and trips to the beach.
Romeo is fostered with another Lab and is doing great with her. He is enjoying his foster home very much and settling in beautifully.
He's not much of a retriever though. He doesn't love to get the ball. He is really more of a cruiser just hanging out and enjoying easy romps with his foster sister and enjoying life.
Romeo did fall in the pool two times. It was clear he has not been in a pool before and he got a little scared. We think once introduced properly he will like swimming. If he new family has a pool they must be sure Romeo can get out safely.
He is a gentle and calm boy so is a good choice for families with children.
Romeo is a real lover and such a special boy.
He is healthy, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and neutered.
If you feel Romeo the lover is right for your family, please complete an application and shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

Jasper 3 adoption pending!
Meet Gentle Jasper, the sweetest and most beautiful purebred male Weimaraner around. This beautiful boy is such a good boy with a wonderful heart and calm easy disposition.
He is 5 years old and has lovely temperament. At about 85 lbs, Jasper is a gentle boy who is beautifully bred and the perfect size for a handsome purebred male Weimaraner.
Jasper is a true lover. He really loves his people and is such a good boy in the house. He is obedient and trained and knows his commands. All he wants to do it please his person and he loves to be close and by your side.
He is wonderful in the car, in the house, at dog park, and really just anywhere you want to take him. He loves to go on errands with his person or is just as happy to stay home with his doggie pals.
Jasper came to us when his family lost their home. They did not want to give Jasper away but had no choice and all they asked is that we do our very best to find Jasper the best home there is. He was a beloved family member and we want that for him again.
Losing his family was hard for Jasper who is so loyal, but he is doing great in foster and seems ready to go on to his new forever home. He is very happy and content and is just ready for someone to love him again.
Jasper is fitting in beautifully in his foster home where he gets along wonderfully with all the other dogs he is fostered with including other Weims. He is good with other dogs and he is even good with cats so he is a great choice for families with kitties.
Jasper is good with children also, though due to his size we prefer he only be placed with older children.
Jasper is a medium energy calm dog. He will need and will enjoy his good daily exercise and then he will settle perfectly in the house. He has lovely house manners and is 100% housebroken.
Jasper was always a loved dog and was raised in a good home, so there is little to do in terms with working on house skills. He is a calm gentleman and a wonderful indoor buddy.
Although Jasper is a mellow guy, he also has lots of spunk if you feel like a hike too. He will go with the flow. If you are in the mood for a hike or jog he's right their with you. Or if it's a rainy day and you want to curl up under the blankets, Jasper will be by your side. He is the perfect mix of easy and fun and blends right in.
Jasper is a very healthy happy boy who just wants to be a best friend. You really couldn't do better than to have the love of this fellow. And in return, Jasper will give you such loyalty and love.
Jasper is a very healthy sound boy who has been neutered and microchipped and he is up to date on vaccines.
This cat, dog, and people friendly Weimaraner is a true family companion for that family blessed enough to call him theirs.
Jasper will do best in a home with another friendly canine companion to keep him company if you are away long hours. Or he would do great as your one and only if you are not gone super long days. Most Weims are real companion dogs and don't love life left alone all day. They can get lonely and bored and are happiest with a friend.
He will do best with a family who will take him out for a nice walk each day and maybe some weekend outings. And he is so well behaved he can even accompany you to work if your employer permits dogs.
If you would like to meet Jasper, please be sure to complete an application to adopt and then follow up with an email to IndiWeimGirl@aol.com

Ziggy and Rex adopted!
Ziggy and Rex are 2 purebred AKC Weimaraner puppies. They are males who are just 6 1/2 weeks old so they will not be ready to go to new homes for another week and a half at 8 weeks of age.
The boys are shown here with 3 of our chocolate Labrador puppies who are all females and were adopted.
These healthy, happy little guys are beyond adorable and are typical Weim pups: cuddly, affectionate, and squirmy. It just doesn't get any better.
Each of these little cubs are looking for loving forever homes.
The boys have had their first shots and have been wormed.
Puppies are a huge commitment. Someone must be home much of the time for the first couple of months and families must be ready for dealing with puppyhood. Puppies require housebreaking, training, tons of attention, and love.
Weims always do best with another dog in the household as well. These guys would love a canine companion and even will do great with kitties.
If you feel your family is ready to adopt a little purebred Weimaraner boy, please be sure to complete an application and follow up with an email to IndiWeimGirl@gmail.com

Meet Diego, a stunningly beautiful purebred male Weimaraner of between 1- 2 years. This youngster is unbelievably gorgeous with a beautiful coat and the most soulful amazing eyes. He will steel your heart in seconds and you won't know what hit you.
As gorgeous as this beautifully bred boy is, his looks are not the best part of him. He is just an amazing, wonderful dog. He has a natural tail instead of a docked tail. He is just charming!
Diego is a young boy with lots of energy and a wonderful heart. He's a true lover and cuddler and just adores all people and is even good with children.
Diego LOVES other dogs. He gets along beautifully with his foster siblings. They love to play and share toys. And Diego is wonderful with his food around the other dogs too. He sits and takes his treats gently and waits for the other dogs to get theirs first.
Diego is not a digger in the yard. He's a very good boy out there with the other dogs when they are outside. He's not a barker but sometimes will let out a few barks when he wants to play. He is a typical Weim that loves to be with his person.
Diego is young yet is amazingly well behaved. He doesn't seem to be much of a chewer and so far has been trustworthy in his foster home. Diego has lots of happy energy and needs his daily exercise each and every day. He will do best with a family that will take him to the dog park often to wear him out and let him play with other dogs.
Diego will do well in a home with another friendly canine companion or he will do well as an only dog provided he doesn't need to spend long hours all alone. Like all Weimaraners, he needs companionship so either his person or another dog will keep him happy.
Diego has absolutely no aggression in him at all. He is just Mr. Happy all the time. He's not particularly mouthy though he can nibble a bit during play sessions. He does jump up sometimes, and at almost 100 lbs, needs a bit of training, so no toddlers for Diego, please!
He is a very smart boy who is eager to please his person. He should do a nice obedience class with is new owner if possible to cement their bond and set Diego well on the way to perfection.
Diego is totally housebroken and sleeps well through the night on his dog bed. Diego is a good boy in the car, but not yet great at getting up into the car. He isn't doing his best at jumping up inside so needs a little help. As time goes by he will get great at jumping right in as he is learning the car means going somewhere fun.
Diego is a healthy fellow who is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.

Stella 2 adopted!
Meet Stella - a stunningly beautiful, gentle, sensitive and sweet female Weimaraner of about 1 1/2 yrs old. She came into rescue with her brother, Diego. Stella is currently being fostered with 3 1/2 twin toddlers as well as with three male labs, two that are 7 1/2 years old and another Indi Lab favorite, Tar, 13 1/2, one of Indi's permanent hospice dogs. Stella gets along well with her human and furry siblings. This girl is truly a prize and her foster family and everyone that meets her adores her! Her mild and sweet nature is hard to resist!
Stella ended up at a very high kill shelter in Los Angeles, where we immediately rescued her and brought her home with us! She was not at all happy in the shelter - as that is a very scary place for dogs. And for a gentle soul like Stella this was pretty stressful. As soon as she got home, she warmed up to her foster mom and started giving love and affection and doing her happy dance to be back in a home!
Stella is a gentle and sensitive girl and can be a little shy with people at first. But once she has a chance to know you she blossoms and it is a wonderful thing to experience. We don't think Stella had much opportunity to be out and about much so she has been enjoying going places with her foster family.
Stella is great with all other dogs - big and small, young & old. She passes them with ease on leash. She might be a little shy if they stop to say hello, but she's still a very friendly girl. She walks pretty well on leash - although she does like to be at the end of the leash, she does not pull much at all and responds well to quick, light tugs on the leash for correction.
Aside from her personality, the great thing about Stella is that she is the combination of sweetness and fun. She is mellow but will rally anytime for a walk. She can be goofy but is not hyper. She is great with other dogs and loves to play, again, after the initial shyness is overcome. Stella is the perfect combination of happy and fun. She is a medium energy girl who will LOVES her daily walks and would enjoy hikes, perhaps even trips to dog beach or dog park once she's settled in with her new family.
She knows her basic commands and will sit, down and stay for you. She also knows come and let's go! It is obvious that she did have training as she is obedient and eager to please. With Stella, a little goes a long way, so gentle corrections work perfectly well.
Like most young Weimaraners, Stella will do best in a home where someone is home most of the time. So for stay at home moms, people that work from home or those that can bring your dog to work, Stella would love it. It would be great if there is another doggie sibling that she can spend time with and play with. Stella loves her people and will bond easily. She loves to sleep in the same room with her family and currently sleeps in the bedroom with her foster mom and dad. But she also loves to play with her foster labby brothers too.
Stella is a well mannered girl - housebroken, not jumpy and settles very well around the house! She likes to give kisses of affection, but she is pretty gentle, so she is likely a good choice for a family with kids. Because Stella can be a little skittish around large crowds and lots of people, it is important to continue to expose her to the world out there where she can experience life and know that there's a lot of fun to be had out there! Stella has been through a lot in her young life so it is important to remember that she will need time to decompress in her new home. She also rides fabulously in the car - just hops right in and settles down for the ride.
Stella is spayed, micro-chipped, and up to date on all vaccines. Stella is simply an incredible girl. If you feel that sweet Stella is the girl for you, please complete and send an application to adopt to her foster mom at email@example.com.
Roxy 5 adopted!
Meet Roxy, a lovely purebred chocolate female Labrador with no dew claws. This 4 year old girl is about 80 pounds and is a lovely combination of playful energy and nice indoor mellowness, not to mention very, very pretty with a statuesque body and a nice blocky head.
She is still a young Lab at age 4 and loves her daily exercise, but she is the perfect mix of fun and easy. She walks fabulously on leash, never pulling, so she makes a great walking partner! She would also enjoy hiking, dog park or dog beach and perhaps even a game of fetch.
Roxy was turned into a high kill Los Angeles shelter by her owners who were moving. When we heard about her, we became very worried about what would happen to her as the shelter is overcrowded and understaffed. So we rushed right down and she immediately came home with us! Roxy was turned in with 3 other Labradors, one sweeter than the next so we feel very confident in her wonderful temperament.
Roxy is a very sweet, medium energy girl. She can be playful and even likes to play fetch, however she also settles down beautifully after her walk or trip to the park. She just loves the dog park with her foster mom and her 2 foster sisters and galavants all around making lots of play friends and happily greeting all sorts of people. She is really just a joy.
This girl would make a wonderful offleash hiking partner as she stays right by your side and at dog park, she constantly checks back in with her foster mom before going off again to make friends. She really looks to her person which is a wonderful quality for any dog to have.
Roxy is wonderful with other dogs and very good on the leash. We think Roxy will do fine with another friendly canine companion as she is wonderful with the 2 Labs she is fostered with and other dogs she has met but she does truly love her person and likes all the attention if she can get it so she will probably do fine as an only dog as well.
Because Roxy comes from a home where she was always with other dogs, we prefer not to place her in a home where she will be alone all day without another dog to keep company with. If her people are around more often than not, she will do fine as an only dog.
Roxy is not destructive in the house, and settles very well. She is also a very good girl in the car and just lays down while you drive. She seems to enjoy car rides.
Roxy takes treats very gently and is not jumpy or mouthy, so she would likely do well in a home with or without children. Although keep in mind any playful Lab can knock over toddlers so we will be placing her in a home where children are over the age of 6.
Roxy does not seem to know any basic commands. We are working on learning "sit" in foster, so it would be great if her new family can continue to brush her up on her basic obedience - a dog obedience class would be great for this. But because she is so eager to please and a basically calm easy dog, teaching her commands will be easy and fun.
Roxy is healthy, spayed, up to date on shots, and microchipped.
Are you ready
for a 100% labby girl? If you are, then meet Darla! This girl is a 2
year old Bench Bred Chocolate Lab and is so unbelievably CUTE! She’s an
adorable English butterball (she could definitely afford to lose a few
pounds), with the short little tank body, blocky head, jowly muzzle,
sweetest dark brown eyes and the squishiest face ever! She’s a busy,
silly, happy girl, and she takes that happiness everywhere she goes and
gives it to everyone who glances her way! WAG WAG WAG!
came into a tough, high-kill shelter. We couldn’t bear the thought of
anything happening to her, because she’s just a perfect teddy bear of a
lab. So we promptly rescued her so we could help find her a new forever
Darla loves loves to play ball - fetching over and over and
over again... and wow can she run - even with her extra pounds. She
also loves water and swimming! She even loves a bath! In fact, if you
had a pool, she might just love you for life! She loves to eat. In
fact, sometimes she loves her treats so much she's anxious to eat them
before they are out of your hand, so she is learning to take treats
"gently." She loves her dog bones. And she loves affection and
Dara’s got a couple silly quirks. She likes to play
in her water bowl. And she likes to pretend she's walking you on leash
instead of you walking her. Hence, she is best walked on a pinch collar
and reminded how to best walk beside you, following your lead. But
lots of training walks are good for this girl as she needs to shed a few
She does great in the car - just laying down in
the back while you drive! And she does well while you run errands, just
resting and waiting for you to return to the car. What a good girl.
is a medium energy girl - but as still a young lab at age 2, she does
need plenty of exercise, but will settle well in the house after her
exercise. Swimming and playing fetch are definitely her two favorite
She is not mouthy or jumpy so we think she would likely
do well with kids, but she is a wiggler, so probably best with children
over 5 as she could definitely knock a toddler down. Darla is your
typical labby girl
Darla is spayed, up to date on all shots, and microchipped - she is now just looking for her forever home!
Meet Fargo, a super sweet, adorable purebred male Labrador of 5-6 years. This cuddle bear is the sweetest, calmest, and most lovely boy ever. He's a little on the shy side. but warms up quickly and just falls in love with you and you with him.
Fargo is great with other dogs and wonderful with kitties. He is a submissive boy who loves other dogs. And he is a great choice for families with cats. 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.
Fargo is pretty good on the leash and passes other dogs nicely. He can tend to pull on the leash in the beginning of his walk but does great after just a little bit. And if you aren't up for ANY pulling, he does beautifully on a pinch collar with no pulling at all. This easy going boy is just a joy. His calm nature and happy personality make him a wonderful boy to have around.
Fargo came to us from a very high kill shelter where he was in danger. When we met Fargo 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 Fargo we knew we had a winner and we took him right away.
After a vet visit and a clean bill of health, this doll baby went into his foster home where he has been doing beautifully with his foster Lab brother and sister and his foster kitties.
Fargo will do fine with children though any Lab can knock a toddler over without meaning to. He is currently fostered with 3 boys, the youngest is 10, and he loves them.
Fargo loves his crate, but he also knows how to open the crate because he is a smart boy. He will often open his crate and walk around and then go back in his crate with the door open! It's pretty adorable. He is not destructive at all - not a chewer, digger, or barker although he may bark if someone comes to the door as he should! Fargo is just a wonderful, and adorable Lab who is looking for that perfect loving home he so deserves.
Look at this adorable Labbie boy puppy! Isn’t he the sweetest thing? He is a dream puppy, white with blonde markings, chubby tummy, wrinkly forehead, nose and eyeliner black as coal, and the thickest blond eyelashes you’ve ever seen.
Keegan is a shorter boy with a naturally shorter tail. He is about the cutest Labby pup we have ever seen.
Keegan is only 8 weeks of age and ready to go to his new forever home. He has the dearest temperament, affectionate yet independent, great with other dogs, and kids. Of course, if you have a kitty, he’ll learn to love her, because he won’t know any different.
When his foster mom comes back from anywhere, he runs up, his face in the air, ready and eager to give kisses. He will roll onto his back for almost any reason and falls into a deep sleep when you rub his cute belly.
He loves to romp and play, and once you see his little stumpy tail wag, you’ll be in heaven. His foster family loves to just watch him roam around the yard discovering things for the first time, batting them with his paw and then usually taking them in his mouth.
He’s had two sets of shots and will probably be street-ready in another two weeks when he completes his third set. Then his new family can start socializing him with other dogs and taking him for short walks for his short little legs. It is nothing short of magical to take a puppy this age around town. People are delighted and amazed by the sweetness of a little puppy. Also dogs this age are limitless in their eagerness to meet and greet any all strangers.
In order to adopt a puppy this young, a family member must be home for at least the next few months. Puppies this young thrive on attention, and can get very bad habits ingrained for life (separation anxiety, escape artistry) if they are not given enough interaction in these tender first months.
It is best for puppies this age to have a crate or exercise pen ready when they come home. This way they won’t get in trouble when you can’t watch them or have other things that need to get done.
There will be a neuter deposit taken on this puppy as he is too young for us to neuter safely. We will return the deposit to his family as soon as they demonstrate that he has been neutered. He should be neutered by 7 months of age.
Meet Kaya, a sweet, petite female lab who is a very gentle girl! Kaya is a pretty yellow girl of superior temperament. This 1 year old yellow lab is on the petite side at only 40 pounds currently. She has a cute, innocent face & lovely brown eyes! She has a calm, timid nature and is so gentle in everything she does!
She does need her daily exercise as she is still a young Lab at only 1 year, but she is the perfect mix of mellow calmness and energetic fun. Kaya is a gentle girl who deserves lots of love and affection. She will sit right up next to you just to get attention and hold a paw up for you to pet her. In fact, she loves to cuddle up next to you and have her head on your lap or your chest - if you're looking for a gentle, calm girl - you've found her in Kaya!
Kaya came to us from a high kill shelter where she was found as a stray. The shelter was a high kill shelter lacking in space and we rescued her just before she was in danger of euthanasia. Hard to believe a sweet, beautiful, calm girl like this with outstanding temperament could be in danger, but due to overpopulation, this is sadly the case.
She is a bit on the thin side - slightly underweight at 40 lbs, but now that she is in our care, we are feeding her plenty of high quality food and healthy doggie treats so she can gain the 5-10 pounds she should gain to be at a healthy weight. We ask that her new family also be committed to helping her gain the weight she needs. She will likely be about 50 pounds when she is full grown, so she will still be a small, petite girl!
Kaya is well trained! She knows sit, down and come commands, and we are working on stay. She is a darling girl who will follow you everywhere. She walks fabulously on leash - walking right by your side, never pulling at all and passing other doggies beautifully with a friendly submissive wag.
Kaya settles beautifully in the house after her walk. She likes to be close to you and nap at your feet or on the bed & nestled up close. She is truly wonderful with all other dogs both big and small. She is a calm, and submissive girl, who is very gentle in greeting other doggies and very comfortable around them.
Kaya will do beautifully as an only dog or with another friendly doggie companion. She is currently fostered with a medium energy female lab of 7 years and they get along very well.
Kaya is a medium energy girl - requiring her daily exercise, but a couple of moderate walks a day are just fine for her.
Kaya takes treats very, very gently - such a good girl. She will do great with children due to her calm, gentle nature and her smaller size! Kaya also does great with kitties, so if you have cats in your home, Kaya is a great choice!
Kaya is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped & ready for her new home!
Carly came to us when her family was forced to move. Unable to take her with them, they came to us for help. We knew the minute we met Carly that we would help her find a new family!
Carly is about 3 yrs old, and is a pure bred Weimaraner. She is currently being fostered with several other dogs, and gets along well with all of them, young and old, big and small!
She is such a happy girl with a sunny disposition! She met some kitties, too, and while she does not bark or act aggressively, she would probably chase a kitty if the kitty ran. She could be okay with kitties, though, if they were introduced properly. The kitty she is fostered with rolled over on her back and let Carly sniff her belly, but another kitty she met was not as nice to her, so it really will depend on the cat, and supervision will be needed at least in the beginning!
Carly's family never really gave her the attention she deserved, so she does need brushing up on basic obedience. It seems like she once knew how to sit, and we are working on it again, but she (and her new family!) would benefit greatly from an obedience refresher course.
She is very excited to be out of the yard she was kept in alone all day, and has been enjoying playing with her foster brothers and sisters. Carly's family had small children, so she is also good with little ones, although since she has a lot of energy, it would be best if her new families kids were over the toddler stage.
Like most young Weimaraners, Carly will do best in a home where someone is home most of the time. She is not a dog who can be left alone for hours and hours. She needs someone to give her the love and attention she has been missing. She will also need regular walks and trips to the dog park or dog beach, and would also do very well with another doggy friend in the house.
Carly is spayed and microchipped, and up to date on all vaccines and house trained.
Spot adoption pending!
Spot is a super handsome, purebred male Weimaraner of approximately 2 to 3 years years old, and about 85 pounds; a perfect specimen! This beautiful boy is not only just gorgeous, he is incredibly sweet and loving.
Spot came to us from a very high kill shelter where he was an owner turn in due to a member of his family having allergies to dogs. Of course meeting this darling boy, we cannot understand why a loving family would not seek a rescue to take Spot rather than putting his life in danger but taking him to a shelter, but at least Spot is safely in our care now and that is what counts.
Spot is a typical young happy Weim. He is energetic and needs his daily exercise like all young Weims and Labs do. Spot walks well on a leash and is enjoyable to walk. If you are a jogger, Spot would love to job with you and would make a perfect jogging, hiking, or walking companion.
Spot loves to play with his toys, especially tug of war with a rope! That is just great fun for him.
In true Weim fashion, Spot LOVES his person and wants to be with someone at all times. He will follow his master from room to room to be with you! He would like to be in a home where he gets to spend most of his time with his master, as he prefers not to be alone! Spot does not want to be locked outside by himself. He is a Weimaraner after all and we all know the Weims just do their best with the companionship of their people. Spot would love a home where he could sleep in the same room as his master at night as well and he is a good sleeper!
Spot is 100% housebroken. He is a very good listener and follows his basic commands very nicely. Like all Weims, he wants to please his person. This is a very good boy who just needs a little more work on some of his other manners like counter surfing - he likes to
counter surf, but does heed when told to get down. This is a nice dog to work with because he corrects easily, listens well, and wants to please - all the hallmarks of a wonderful doggie.
Spot should not be in a home with kitties, as he likes to chase them. We do not think he would hurt a cat, but he will have lots of fun chasing them all around the house.
Spot gets along well with other dogs and is doing great with the other Weims he is fostered with. He is learning to share toys and treats with his foster siblings and just a little more training would help him polish these skills impeccably!
Spot will do fine with older children. He's a big happy boy and may be just a little too large for tiny toddlers.
Spot is a healthy boy who has been neutered, is up to date on all vaccines, including rabies, and is microchipped. He is waiting for his forever home, possibly with you!
If you think this beautiful purebred Weimaraner male is right for your family, please be sure to complete an application to adopt and then follow up with an email to IndiWeimGirl@aol.com
This is Hunter, the most amazing dog. He is the ideal dog – loves everyone, playful and young but mellow, and BEAUTIFUL to boot. Hunter is a purebred Labrador Retriever male of about 2-3 years.
Look at him! He is an astoundingly beautiful boy! He has a beautiful blocky head and a stocky English body, and yet, not one ounce of fat on him! He’s sleek, muscular, with a gorgeous shiny, smooth coat and adorable little feet. He still has his dew claws, but he is a purebred with almost perfect conformation. His muzzle is a little longer than the true bench-bred, but he’s still jowly and plenty slobbery. He definitely has the adorable, shorter tank body of the English labs. One look into those adorable, deep brown eyes, and you’ll be in love! The best part is his incredible good looks are such a small part of his appeal!
Hunter came into the shelter with his "brother" a purebred Golden Retriever that was pulled by another rescue. He obviously got along perfectly with this friend. His owner came to the shelter and said, “Yep, that’s my dog,” but he didn’t bail out Hunter or his friend! Can you imagine!? He left this beautiful, sweet dog in the shelter to die! Luckily, Hunter had a guardian angel, and when she saw that his owner wasn’t going to redeem him, she got him neutered and got him out for us. We are so happy to have him. He’s a perfect, perfect boy.
Hunter is young, just over a year, and loves to play ball. He will bring back the ball, the stick, the dilapidated piece of old leather, piece of a toy or whatever you want over and over again. He loves to walk and is wonderful on leash. He will go out in front of you if you don’t ask him to walk by your side, but he doesn’t need a pinch, and he won’t pull. He is affectionate and sweet but not demanding. He wags his tail all the time. He’s a happy, happy boy now.
With a little exercise in the morning, he is able to be calm almost all day. Then in the afternoon, he loves to play a little ball or go for another walk, so he can hang out with you in the house for the evening. He is so calm and quiet in the house, you almost won’t know he’s there. He settles beautifully and quickly. He’s very independent, and doesn’t need to be at your knee every minute, though he would love it if that were allowed. He likes to explore and will happily hang out in the yard if you have things you need to do inside. He’s not crazy about going in the crate, but once he’s in there, he will hang out without complaining.
He is not destructive or a chewer, but he does like toys if you have some. He’s not a whiner or a barker. He eats well, but he’s not a food pig. We have not seen him counter-cruising at all. He’s perfectly house-broken and has had NO accidents in the house since he came.
He’s great with kids and not mouthy at all. Sometimes he does sit! He’s been taking the treats very gently from our hands – if at all. He sometimes jumps up a little bit, very tentatively and not in greeting. He more does it when he needs something, like for you to take the ball, or his ears scratched. He’s never jumped up on the kids he’s fostered with. Since he was raised with another dog, he loves other dogs. He gets in and out of the car easily, but he doesn’t relax quickly in there. Usually just about the time you arrive at your destination, he lies down.
The ideal home for Hunter would be with another playful dog. If we can’t place him with another dog, we will be looking for a family that will commit to frequent trips to the dog park. When he came to us he was really sad, but doggie playdates have made all the difference for him.
We are happy for him to go with kids or without, and he doesn’t need someone home all day. He does need someone to exercise him before they leave though. He is a medium energy dog, but he’s quite young, so he needs to be exercised before he is left.
He does not need a lot of training since he doesn’t do anything naughty. He loves to be with you, but he is not a total “velcro” dog, so he would like it if someone were expecting him to want to explore. He’s polite with great doggie manners and would be a wonderful part of almost any family.
Hunter is neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccines.
Meet Ellie! What a sweet young Lab! This little girl is about 1 year old. She is a yellow female Labrador who is lighter cream in color and is a happy, playful pup!
Ellie is still just a puppy so she's a small girl at only about 55 lbs. She will grow to be about 65 lbs as an adult so she will be a nice small-medium size Labrador.
Ellie was found as a stray and made her way to one of the highest kill shelters in California. We quickly rescued this girl to ensure she finds a great new home. Ellie is a skinny girl - needing to gain about 5 pounds to be at her ideal weight. So her new family will need to commit to ensuring Ellie gains some weight to be the healthiest she can be.
This little girl has a sweet, playful temperament. She gets along beautifully with all other dogs. She loves to play and is having great fun with her foster sister and friends.
Ellie loves her toys, dog bones, soft squeaky toys and more. Her new family will need to ensure Ellie has some wonderful dog toys to play with daily. She walks well on leash, rarely pulling, but as a puppy, she is often distracted by exciting things outside - especially birds and squirrels.
Ellie is a medium energy Labrador. She's still a young girl, so she is playful and needs plenty of exercise but she settles beautifully in the house and as she matures will eventually be a moderate energy girl.
Ellie knows come, sit, stay, and shake!! She is crate trained and does well in her crate with a bone or two to keep her from getting bored. She is not yet 100% on her housebreaking skills but we are getting close. We feel certain she will be 100% on her potty skills very, very shortly, but as any new dog, she should be watched at first in her new home.
Ellie will do best in a home with another friendly canine companion to play with or in a home where someone is home much of the time for now, since she is still a young Lab.
She will need a home where someone is committed to doing a nice dog obedience class with her to continue her training. And since she is a puppy still, she is bound to make mistakes including potty accidents, playing with things that aren't her toys and the like. So patience and commitment are paramount for her new family.
This little girl is not mouthy for a puppy and rarely jumps up on anyone so she is actually a candidate for families with kids. Of course, she is a playful, wiggly girl, who could still knock a toddler down. Families just need to be sure they have the time a young dog requires if they also have little ones.
Ellie is a young Labrador, so that means daily exercise and socialization every single day for her. She will not do well left alone in a back yard all day. She will require regular walks, and would love trips to dog park, dog beach, and even hiking.
She is a very good girl in the car, she settles beautifully and just sits or lays down while you drive. In fact, she remains in the back of the SUV without even trying to jump up to the front seats!
Ellie does bark at kitties when she seems them, so we will not look to place her with them.
Ellie is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped!
Meet Spike, a shiny gorgeous purebred male Labrador of about 2 years. This boy is stunning! He is about 85 lbs with a beautiful blocky head, a sweet expression, and a tennis ball stuck in his mouth 24 hours a day.
This young, happy boy loves the tennis ball. He enjoys carrying one or even two tennis balls around. It's adorable and so Labby! We just love this guy.
He's a wiggler and a wagger in true Labby fashion. He loves everyone and every dog and is even wonderful with kitties. Spike is just a lover.
This guy came to us as a stray from a high kill Los Angeles County shelter where he was in immediate danger. Any Lab at a shelter is in danger, but black Labs are in the most danger. This is partly because some people don't like black dogs in general, but mostly because the dark kennels don't allow the dark dogs to pop out as much so most people walk right on by them never seeing the dog at all.
When we met Spike, we fell in immediate love. And so did he. Kisses and wags everywhere and he hopped right in the car ready for his next adventure. He seemed pretty happy to be leaving and took it all in stride.
Spike is an easy going boy. He's a young Lab who needs good daily exercise. He of course loves retrieving the ball so his new family will need to buy a chuck-it to toss the ball for him at dog park. He loves that and it's great exercise.
Spike is great with other dogs. And he enjoys chasing the ball with his foster siblings. He isn't always so pleased to share his ball when he is walking around with it though and will sometimes give a growl to let the other dogs know he wants to keep his own ball.
He is great sharing food and treats. He eats right next to his foster siblings and they get along famously.
Spike came to us pretty neglected. He was suffering from a horrible ear infection that no one bothered to treat him for so it had gotten very bad. We and our vet suspect the infection likely started from food allergies so common to almost every Labrador. Of course we know this having so many Labs and this is why we stress to our adopters how important it is to feed purebred Labradors a grain free diet - raw if possible - but if not, any high quality grain free food.
Spike was immediately put on a raw diet and his ears were treated. He is recovering beautifully. His new family must commit to feeding Spike either a raw diet or a grain free food to ensure he never suffers from allergies again.
In fact we prefer our families to feed any Lab they adopt from us a grain free diet as all of our fosters and volunteers do. We know this is best for a Labrador. And just so you know, the best grain free food - Taste of the Wild - costs the exact same amount of money as Beneful - a horrible grocery store brand of food we would never consider healthy.
Spike is a medium energy boy who settles down beautifully in the house once he has had his exercise. He enjoys hanging out in the yard with his foster brother Bruiser, a 1 year old black Lab, and his foster sister Pan, a 6 year old female black Lab. He also loves laying at his foster mom's feet while she is doing things.
This boy will do great in a home with or without children. He is likely too big and wiggly for tiny toddlers but children over age 5 or 6 would be fine. He would be fine with or without a friendly canine companion and will do best in a home where he will get his good hour of exercise each and every day as any Lab four and under must.
This beautiful boy is housebroken and non-destructive. He is a good boy in the house and the car. He would love dog park and dog beach and would enjoy a hike now and then with his new family.
Spike is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Caramel, a lovely yellow super mellow, easy going English female Labrador of 3 years.
Our beautiful Caramel is ready for adoption. This poor sweet girl came to us from one a Southern California high kill shelter and was so very sick with double Pneumonia that we had to hospitalize her and put her on IV fluids and three antibiotics. Thanks to generous donations, we were able to give her the best medical care and she is now a healthy, happy girl who is ready for a new loving family to cherish her.
Caramel has a beautiful think soft coat, warm loving eyes and will sit by your side soaking up whatever attention you want to give her; all 95 lbs of her. She does need to loose some weight but that will come with good food and exercise over time. Until Caramel is down to about 85 lbs of cuddle bear, there will just be more Caramel to love and squeeze!
Although Caramel is now a healthy girl she is still finishing her final stages of recovery and needs lots of rest. She is a mellow girl so this is easy to achieve. She is showing us she loves to play ball so it's clear she is feeling much much better!
Caramel is a wonderful indoor companion. She will lay at your feet while you work or keep you company in the kitchen hoping to get one of those yummy treats that might drop while cooking. Loud noises like the vacuum do not bother her. Caramel is a mellow girl perfect for a less active family or senior.
Caramel does know some commands, but will need an obedience refresher course. She listens well and wants to please. She 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 he new home doesn't have a doggie door, she may need to learn the potty schedule there.
Caramel would do best as an only dog or possibly with another male doggie companion. No female dogs for she wants to be the only female. She is currently fostered with male lab of 5 years old. They get along great, but Caramel is much more of a people dog and will be your constant companion. Caramel is always at your feet. She does not take treats gently but we are working on it, so little ones might not be a good match. She absolutely loves to carry a toy in her mouth. Tennis balls and doggie toys that squeak piled in to a basket of her own would make her so happy.
As for water, we have not seen Caramel at the beach or a pool but, she dislikes the bath and runs from the garden hose. Her new family will have to take her to the dog beach to see what she thinks. Most Labs love to go to the beach and swim and if they don't swim, they usually enjoy running around retrieving and getting their feet wet in the surf.
Caramel is current on her vaccines and has been de-wormed.
Meet Fagan, a beautiful, purebred, one year old, chocolate Labrador boy with a sweet and silly puppy face! We just love looking at him, especially when his ears are up a little. He has a stunning blocky head and a sweet expression.
Fagan is very thin as he came to us underweight from the shelter where we found him hours from the time he was going to be put to sleep. We can hardly believe that anyone would give up a dog so sweet and well-behaved, and that he could be in the shelter so long that he might have lost his life! He is probably about 65 pounds, but should be 75 pounds at perfect weight. He is still quite young and might even get a little bit taller with proper nutrition.
He is a complete submissive sweetheart, loves all dogs, gentle with kitties, and ADORES kids. He is a little jumpy when you first walk in, but we are quickly training him out of this way of greeting. He could be placed with toddlers, if the family was patient enough, as he is not mouthy at all. Other than the jumping on greeting, he is wonderful for kids, he likes to follow them around, watch them play, and he wags as soon as they look his way. After his initial excitement at having you home, he settles in the house very well and is very well-behaved. He is perfectly house-broken, no mistakes in his foster home at all. He is gentle and sweet, not destructive or a chewer.
Fagan walks fine on a pinch collar, but he does not always walk in a straight line. It's kind of cute and he is really walking better every day. He does not seem to understand how treats work, and if we give him one, he stays by our side, hoping for another. When we give him a rawhide, he tosses it up in the air and plays with it with his front paws, like he has never seen one before. It's adorable. Poor baby!
He is slowly getting used to the good life, with training, treats and chews, and we would love for him to find a nice family to continue to improve his life. He has all the makings of a wonderful family member, being genuinely sweet, happy, even- tempered, engaging and a LOVER of pretty much everything. He's a young boy at just one year so he needs his daily exercise and with a bit of continued training, you will have a beautiful, devoted friend for life.
Being so young, he is a medium to higher energy dog. He is really still a puppy, so he can be excitable but he calms down very quickly. He can go from raring to go to rolled over on his back looking for a belly rub in about two minutes. In the beginning he will need lots of walks, and we are not sure anyone has played ball with him before. He likes to chase the ball but is not altogether sure what to do after that. He is a great house dog once he has had his exercise and settles down beautifully.
He will probably follow you around a lot in the beginning, as most rescue dogs do, but he has a somewhat independent personality and once he gets used to the house, you would be as likely to find him out in the yard, napping wherever you last sat down or in the kitchen, scouting for a dropped tidbit.
Fagan is neutered and up-to-date on vaccines.
Meet Duke, a beautifully bred purebred male Weimaraner with the best looks and the temperament to match!
Duke is a fun loving 3 yr old big boy of a Weim. At around 85 lbs he is one stunning dog, and could even stand to add about 5 lbs or so to be absolutely perfect!
He came to us when a fellow weim loving couple discovered him at a local high kill shelter only minutes before he was to be put to sleep. They adopted him on the spot hoping to get him into rescue! We feel so lucky to have this darling boy and only want the best home for him.
Duke has been neutered is now ready to go into his forever home. This wonderful family that rescued him already have a couple of weims of their own or they would love to adopt Duke themselves.
Duke is a good boy in the house and uses the doggie door. He is VERY smart and is a good listener who really wants to please. Even though he seems to have little training, he is catching on very fast, learns well and is obedient!
Duke gets along well with his foster brothers and sisters and loves to play with other dogs.
Although Duke is a very gentle giant, we would prefer that he be adopted into homes with kids 10 and over. No toddlers or little ones since Duke is still learning to share his toys, and we don't want him to get mixed up and think the kids toys are his. But he does like children and is good with them.
Duke takes correction very well and is learning to walk nicely on a leash. He thinks kitties are great fun! He does chase and bark at cats, so no homes with kitties for this boy!
It would be good if the family who adopts Duke commits to a basic obedience class with him so that he can brush up on his manners. This is also a great way to cement the bond with a new dog and it's a lot of fun.
All Weims need to spend a lot of time with their families, so he does need a home where he won't get left alone for very long periods of time.
Duke would do fine with another sweet and playful friendly canine companion or as your one and only if you don't work very long hours.
If you think you have what it takes to give this gorgeous purebred Weim boy a fabulous forever home, please complete an application to adopt, then send an email to IndiWeimGirl@aol.com to set up a time to meet him!
Meet Callie, an 18 month old amazing purebred AKC registered Silver Labrador Retriever female.
At only 1 1/2 years, this doll baby is as close to perfect as you can get. She is calm and mellow indoors, loves to play outside, loves all other dogs, and of course all people.
At dog park she will often join in with another dog or two to retrieve a tennis ball. She loves to be part of the fun and is very submissive to the other dogs. Everything about her is just innocent happiness - true sweetness. And of course every person that meets Callie falls in love with her gentle calm nature.
Callie is a pretty special dog with superior temperament. She is a happy girl and submissive to people and other dogs. No matter what you do, Callie goes with the flow and this makes her a wonderfully easy girl to be with.
This beauty is a silver Lab which is really one of the colors in the chocolate family. If you would like to learn more about Silver Labs you can visit this site: http://www.silverlabradorinfo.com
Silver Labs are not very common and do go for top dollar. To us however, Callie is really just perfection no matter that she is the highly esteemed silver variety or not. She is a beautiful girl with an amazing colored coat and soft amber eyes. She is a real show stopper looks wise, but honestly it is her temperament that is the true winner. The just do not come an better than this girl.
Callie came to us when her owner died suddenly. We know she was a loved and treasured companion and we are happy we were there for her.
Callie is a medium energy girl who settles beautifully in the house. She is a great dog to have with children and is a perfect family companion.
Callie will do best with a family that likes a velcro dog who loves to be by your side, and also a family that will take her out to do a lot of fun things. She will do great with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only.
Callie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and healthy at can be.
She knows her basic commands, is fabulous on and off leash, and is 100% housebroken. She settles beautifully in the house!
She loves the dog park and making friends with every dog and person that comes in. And of course she loves the dog beach as you can see in her photos.
We know! This is the most beautiful English stocky purebred male Lab ever. We also noticed that! That's why it is so hard to believe this boy came from a high kill shelter JUST before his schedule euthanasia!!!!
Meet Raleigh, an incredible purebred English Lab of close to show quality breed standard. This beautiful Labrador has no dew claws, a giant blocky head, the most lush gorgeous coat, and a perfect otter tail that wags constantly in true Labby fashion.
Raleigh is a tad chubby at about 98 lbs. He sure does love to eat! He should be closer to 85 lbs at his ideal weight.
He is approximately 4 years old, calm as the day is long, perfection in the house and car, trustworthy, and an absolute pleasure to be with.
Raleigh loves other dogs, cats, and all people. And although he is a mellow calm boy, he has a true playful side. He loves one on one play with select other dogs and especially has a thing for playing with puppies and little dogs.
Raleigh loves the water as you can see and would love to live with a family who has a pool or who will take him to the beach.
Raleigh is perfect on the leash but not so perfect off the leash. He tends to wander off in his own way exploring and doesn't always come back when called. We think Raleigh is still looking for his owners.
Raleigh must have been well loved and cared for. Not only is he extremely healthy and is beautiful condition, he has no elbow calluses telling us he was clearly an indoor loved dog who slept on a soft bed.
Raleigh will do wonderfully in most homes. He loves children and is a wonderful choice for little ones and kitties. He is a gentle boy who loves to please his person and who is always happy.
Raleigh is submissive to all other dogs which is really nice. He can go anywhere and meet anyone and do beautifully.
Raleigh is a prize so we will be very selective about his new home. His foster loves him very much and only wants the best of the best for this boy.
We would love his new home to be committed to getting his extra weight off safely.
Raleigh is housebroken, wormed, up to date on flea control, up to date on vaccines, and neutered.
Meet Hudson, a stunningly handsome 3 year old purebred chocolate male Labrador. He is a deep dark beautiful chocolate of about 80 lbs with a giant blocky head to die for. We do not think they come more beautiful than this yummy boy.
Hudson has the beautiful dark chocolate color that is so beloved in our chocolate labs. His coat is glossy and very, very dark.
This easy going boy is amazing with other dogs and loves all people. He is a young boy at age 3 so does need his daily exercise of course, but he settles nicely in the house and seems to like his crate.
Hudson came to us from a high kill Los Angeles County shelter where he was in immediate danger. Of course the moment we looked into those dreamy amber bedroom eyes we knew he was coming home with us! Isn't it amazing the most wonderful dogs end up in our shelters? We are continuously surprised by these most deserving dogs who just need a little help to find homes.
Hudson is a sweet boy who walks nicely on the leash with a pinch collar. He's not a huge puller and is getting better and better on leash. Before long he will be perfection. He really loves his walks and enjoys walking with his foster sisters.
Hudson gets along beautifully with is foster sisters a 7 year old female Lab and his other foster sister a 3 year old female Lab. They all get along nicely, share toys and the bed, and love each others company.
Hudson will do best in a home where he will get the daily exercise young Labradors need and would love to go to dog park and dog beach and even some nice hikes with his new family. He is a young Lab after all so lots of activities and fun time for this happy boy!
We think he will do nicely with children, but he is a large wiggler so no toddlers for this guy. We will consider children over the age of 5 on a case by case basis.
Hudson will do beautifully with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only. But if you work long hours, it would be nice for Hudson to have a friend to spend days with.
We don't know how Hudson will do with kitties so we prefer not to place him with them.
We also don't know if Hudson will love the water, but he IS a Lab so there's a good chance he will enjoy a pool and certainly would love trips to dog beach to play with other dogs and enjoy the surf.
Hudson knows how to "sit" and know how to "shake". He also seems to know other commands and we are working with him.
He is housebroken, non destructive, and settles beautifully in his crate. He seems to really like his crate and is a quiet good boy through the night.
Hudson is good in the car too and enjoys going for car rides. Especially if he thinks it's somewhere fun like dog park.
Hudson is healthy, neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Tulip, the sweetest, most loving female lab who loves to play fetch! This 3 year old yellow lab is on the smaller side at 66 pounds and is a lovely combination of playful energy and nice indoor mellowness.
She does need her daily exercise as she is still a young Lab at age 3, but she is the perfect mix of fun and easy. She loves to play fetch and will run after the ball and bring it back to you over & over again. She is great with other dogs and enjoys her visits to the dog park.
Tulip came to us from a high kill shelter were she was found as a stray and we rescued her just in time. Tulip must have been well taken care of in her previous home as she is so friendly and has a gorgeous buttery coat! Hard to believe she ended up at a shelter, because she is just a treasure to have as a pet!
Tulip knows sit, down and come commands, however she knows those commands best when you are holding a treat or tennis ball in your hand, so she will need continued reminders of these commands in her new home.
Tulip is an amazing young yellow lab. She walks very well on leash. She walks right next to you, speeding up when you speed up & slowing down when you slow down - she is quite a pleasure to walk! She will likely do very well off leash, as she stays right near her person in the dog park and is always coming back to check in!
Tulip settles beautifully in the house after she has had her exercise. She likes to be close to you and nap at your feet or on the bed. She is housebroken and not destructive, but as any dog, she should be watched at first in her new home. She also knows how to use a doggie door!
Tulip is good with other dogs both big and small. She has met many other dogs both on and off leash, both big & small and she does beautifully with all of them. She would do great as an only dog or with another doggie companion. She does get lonely when left alone, so she will probably do best in a home where you are not gone long hours. She is currently fostered with another female lab of 7 years old and they get along great.
She is a very good girl in the car, although she often wants you to help her into the car, but she settles beautifully and just lays down while you drive. She rides along well while running errands, and sometimes likes to find her way to the passenger seat while you are inside a store.
Tulip takes treats very gently - such a good girl. She keeps her distance while you eat, never trying to eat your people food. She loves her doggie toys - especially balls, and doggie bones, so having these toys & playing fetch with her in her new home is a must! She especially likes to carry toys around in her mouth - it's so adorable!
She will do well with children though keep in mind, any playful lab can knock over toddlers.
Tulip is up to date on shots and microchipped. She is scheduled to be spayed on Tuesday, so if she finds a new home before then, her new family will just need to take her to our vet on Tuesday for her spay at our expense.
Weimaraner puppies! adopted!
We have 2 purebred AKC Weimaraner puppies for adoption. Both are males and they are 12 weeks old. These little guys are so beautiful and the biggest lovers. They are healthy, wormed, and have had their 1st shots.
Weimaraners are special dogs with special needs. These babies will only be adopted into puppy approved and Weimaraner approved homes. Puppies need someone home during the day. They require a lot of patience, training, housebreaking, toys, they are messy, etc. so unless you are prepared for a puppy do not inquire. These guys need committed homes.
The puppies will not be able to go out into the world until they have had 3 full sets of puppy shots. There is a great risk of Parvo and Distemper to puppies and Distemper is at an all time high so the puppies cannot be exposed to the outside world right now.
The puppies MUST be neutered per the adoption agreement.
Meet Polly, the sweetest, darling female black lab who loves to be loved. This 2 year old jet black lab is on the smaller side at 58 pounds and is a lovely combination of playful energy and nice indoor mellowness.
She does need her daily exercise as she is still a young Lab at age 2, but she is the perfect mix of fun and easy. She is a gentle girl who loves to be loved and pet. She will sit right up next to you just to get attention and nudge you with her nose when she wants more attention.
Polly came to us from a high kill shelter were she was found as a stray and we rescued her just in time. Hard to believe she ended up at a shelter, because she is just a treasure to have as a pet! Not only was Polly taken from a shelter but it was the single highest kill shelter in all of California and it was about 1 hour before she was to be euthanized. Unreal that a dog this amazing ended up there.
Polly knows sit, down and come commands, and we are working on stay - she knows it, but just would much rather be next to you so she needs to continue working on that. Polly is truly a darling girl. She walks so well on leash, you almost won't know she's there with you. She walks right next to you, speeding up when you speed up & slowing down when you slow down - she is a DREAM to walk! But just as great is how she does off leash! She loves her off leash trail hikes where she can explore the trail, yet she never goes farther than 20 feet away, and she promptly comes back when called.
Polly settles beautifully in the house after she has had her exercise. She likes to be close to you and nap at your feet or on the bed. She is housebroken and not destructive, but as any dog, she should be watched at first in her new home. Polly is good with other dogs both big and small. She has met many other dogs both on and off leash, and both big & small and she does beautifully with all of them. She would do great as an only dog or with another doggie companion. She is currently fostered with another female lab of 7 years old and they get along great. She is a very good girl in the car, hopping in easily and just laying down while you drive.
Polly eats well like any lab, but she is not overly food driven. She takes treats very gently - such a good girl. She keeps her distance while you eat, never trying to eat your people food. She loves her doggie toys - especially dog bones, so having nylabones and kongs in her new home is a must! She will do well with children though keep in mind, any playful lab can knock over toddlers.
Polly is spayed, up to date on shots, wormed and current on flea control.
Meet Midnight, a beautiful purebred AKC female 2 year old Labrador with the most gorgeous luxurious jet black shiny coat. Midnight is about 65 lbs and is perfectly bred - just a stunningly beautiful Lab.
This little girl is wonderful with all people, children, and other dogs. She is a submissive girl who gets along beautifully with all other dogs and at dog park she loves to go up and greet each new dog coming in and of course their owners as well. Midnight is a very happy, wiggly, lover girl. She has plenty of energy but settles nicely in the house and is not destructive and 100% housebroken.
Midnight came to us when her owner suddenly passed away. She was traumatized by this as he had a heart attack and she was left with him for almost 2 days until someone found them. She was a deeply beloved dog and it shows. Losing her owner has been hard on her and she is adjusting well. We feel lucky that we were there for Midnight to be sure she gets only the very best home. Her loving owner would want that for this girl.
Midnight shares toys and food nicely and is very submissive to other dogs. She walks beautifully on the leash and is pretty good off leash too. She loves the ocean and swimming out for a ball. She is a very social girl with true Labby temperament who just enjoys everything about life.
Midnight will do her best in a home that will provide generous daily exercise and would do best with another friendly canine companion - especially if her owners are away during the day. She will do fine with children including toddlers and should do ok with kitties as well as she doesn't seem to have a high prey drive. She is an amazing watch dog too! She will bark to alert you of anyone coming up to the house.
Midnight is healthy, spayed, and up to date on vaccines.
Meet Shadow, a gorgeous English chocolate lab! Shadow has the fabulous good looks of an english lab with his blocky head and shorter stature and he is a male of 5 years old. He is about 100 pounds and needs to lose about 15 pounds to get to his perfect weight, so he will gladly welcome you on walks, dog park visits, and playing fetch in the yard to get in shape.
Shadow came to us when his previous owner lost his home and sadly could not take Shadow with him. Shadow is as sweet as they come! A happy, social lab - he just loves all people and other doggies too. He loves his walks and playing ball in the yard and just lying at your feet when you are at home. He is a great, mostly mellow, yet sometimes wiggly lab who will give you lots of love! He is obedient too - knows sit, down and stay. He is a typical lab who wants to be with you and will follow you from room to room - happiest being where you are.
Shadow lived previously with another doggie, and although he's a happy lab around his people, he gets lonely when left at home alone, so we would like to place him in a home where he will have another doggie companion. He doesn't need a doggie playmate, just enjoys the company of another dog. Shadow could be an only dog, but only if you are not gone from the home many hours and/or plan to take him places with you, as he does get lonely left at home alone.
Shadow has met many other dogs on walks around the neighborhood, both large & small and he has done beautifully with all of them. He walks well on the leash, but keep in mind that teasing squirrels are always an invitation for doggies to pull you down the street to chase the squirrel!
Shadow is great in the house! He is housebroken and not destructive. He settles well after his exercise, often lying at your feet, or on the floor next to the bed. And of course he sleeps in the bedroom with you on his dogbed all through the night, very soundly. Shadow has been known to chase kitties, so no cats for Shadow in his new home.
Shadow is your typical wiggly lab, but doesn't jump up at all. We think he would be best placed with kids 4 and older. Overall he has a medium energy level, where given a couple walks a day he will settle nicely. And of course he would enjoy playing fetch in the backyard, trips to the dog park, dog beach or other activities where he can be social with his doggie friends. He rides great in the car!
Shadow is neutered, microchipped and is up to date on his shots.
Meet Luke, a happy wiggly purebred yellow Lab male of just about 1 year of age. This guy is the sweetest happiest Lab ever who loves everyone and everything!
Luke is a healthy boy at just about 65 lbs. He could use a little filling out but he is still young so he will fill out more over the next year.
Luke has a gorgeous buttery yellow coat and nice blocky head. He is a true beauty but his looks are only part of what makes Luke such a great Labrador. He has outstanding temperament and is such a lover.
Luke loves all other dogs and is great with kitties. If he gets playful he may give chase to a kitty, but it's all in fun. He is a good boy. He will even give nose kisses to the cat.
Luke is a young Lab who is very playful. He is great with other dogs and would love to go to dog park with you for play dates. He will do great with another playful friendly canine companion too.
Luke is housebroken and good in the house. But he is young and loves his toys. He sometimes gets confused and thinks things that are NOT his toys are his so he needs to be reminded. His new home should have lots of nice toys for him, and especially chew toys like nylabones, rawhides, kongs and the like. He loves to chew on a nice rawhide.
If Luke is super happy and wiggly and glad to see you he may try to jump. We are working on this and he is doing better. He will do great with children, but may be a little too wiggly for tiny toddlers even though he will love them. Since he is young and loves toys so much he sometimes tends to be a little Labby mouthy guy. So again, probably not the best choice for children under 5 years of age.
Luke is very, very sweet. He is a real lover and adores all people. He likes to give kisses and lay his head in your lap.
Luke will do best in a home where he will get the good daily exercise all young Labs need and also trips to dog park and dog beach to meet and play with other dogs. Luke is a very affectionate good boy with the absolute best Labby personality. He is everything we look for in our Labs. He is good on leash and walks wonderfully off leash too so he is a great dog to take on trail walks and hikes as he will stay with you and come on command.
Luke is healthy, neutered, up to date on all vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Jake! Jake is a 5 year old purebred English or Bench Bred purebred AKC Labrador male. This boy is a gorgeous chocolate guy with a big block head and a nice stocky body.
He is a little overweight but losing and looking amazing. Currently Jake weighs just over 100 lbs and he really should be more like 90 at ideal weight. Nice walks, appropriate amounts of food will take care of this in no time and until then, there is more Jake to love.
Jake is a mellow guy who is perfect in the house. He needs a good walk every day but settles in beautifully and is totally housebroken and non destructive. He is a good boy on the leash and will pull if permitted to do so. He does best with a gentle leader, halti, or pinch collar.
Jake gets excited when he sees other dogs while he is on the leash. We are working on this and he is already doing much better. He is fine meeting other dogs, but initially he gets very excited and pulls to get to them. We are teaching him he needs to be calmer and meet dogs more easily.
Jake is very good with other dogs and is wonderful with the 2 dogs he is fostered with and the other Labs he has met. He is also ok with cats, but very cat curious so families with cats will only be considered if their cats are dog savvy and they are ok with kitties being chased around. Jake is amazing with kids though he is a big guy and would do best with kids over age 6. He loves all people and loves, loves, loves to get his belly rubbed. Jake is good in the car and loves to go for rides. He's a nice travel partner.
Jake will do best with another friendly canine companion male or female or as your one and only. His new home must be committed to helping him lose a few lbs through nice low impact exercise while he gets in shape. And they must be willing to work with him to continue being calmer when meeting new dogs on leash. It's easy and he responds well so it just needs to be continued.
Jake is healthy, neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped, wormed, and current on flea control.
Cody Cub adopted!
Cub, a darling, adorable purebred Lab puppy of just 16 weeks (4 months). This Labbie youngster is a pale yellow male puppy who is the wiggliest, sweetest and
cutest pup around. This little guy will wrap you around his paws and
steel you heart in seconds.
Cody Cub came to us from a local Los
Angeles County shelter where we found him wandering around his kennel
wagging his tail and asking us to take him home! How could we say no to
Cody is just a youngster at 4 months. He is 40 lbs and will
probably grow to be about 65-70 lbs as an adult. But that is a ways
away and for now this little man is just a little guy who wants to have
fun, play, sleep a lot, and chew everything in sight.
need a puppy approved home - a family where someone is home much of the
time for the next couple of months and where he will get the patience and
training all young Lab puppies need.
His new home will need to be
completely puppy proofed for Cody's safety as well as the safety of
your shoes, cell phones, remote controls, and everything else little Lab
puppies love to play with. He is learning what toys are his so he will
need lots and lots of toys to play with to keep him busy.
home will want to have a crate to keep Cody safely confined when
they cannot keep an eye on him and to continue his potty training
although he is already housebroken. But hey,
puppies make mistakes, so positive potty reinforcement is necessary
including using a crate and praising when he does his potty outside.
will need lots of doggie socialization and play time with other dogs.
He will also need a puppy obedience class. Both of these things should
happen only AFTER Cody's family provides him his full set of puppy
shots. He has had his puppy shots but puppies require boosters before
they are fully immunized.
Cody is just a joy and a whole lot of
Labby fun. But no matter how adorable this puppy is, he will grow into a
big wiggly and playful Lab in no time so families need to consider the
puppy commitment and the lifelong commitment before considering adopting
Cody is microchipped and has had his first 2 rounds of
puppy shots. His new owners will need to continue his immunization
protocol and have him neutered at 6 months of age providing us with a
neuter certificate per our adoption contract.
Skipper, a stunning purebred male Weimaraner of almost 2 years. This
show-stopper of a Weim is not only beautiful, he is the most
affectionate boy who wants nothing more than to please his person. He's a more medium sized boy at only 65 lbs but a tad underweight. He will fill out to be more like 75 lbs so he is not a big Weimaraner.
is a young Weim who is willing to please and is very calm in the
house. He is completely housebroken and uses the doggie door by himself.
He just is so eager to be a good boy and is so treat motivated that
training him is a real pleasure!
Not only is Skipper amazing with all dogs, he also is perfect with kitties - all kitties! So this boy is a great choice for families with cats. He basically ignores them though he will accept kitty kisses if they are given.
He is doing great on the leash -
not pulling hard at all. And in the house he is just a pleasure staying
to his own toys, being a gentleman, and being a calm boy.
the most wonderful things about Skipper is that he is really good with
other dogs. He does great at dog park and has made lots of friends. And
of course he is doing very well with his foster brother who is a male
Labrador. It's a pleasure to visit dog park and dog beach with this guy. He makes friends wherever he goes because his temperament is so outstanding.
Skipper is a young boy with medium energy who loves his
daily exercise. A good romp dog park and Skipper settles beautifully in
the house. He is very good in his kennel and will settle right down. He
is the best boy for someone looking for a pal to hike with or jog with
who also wants a calm companion. He's just the right mix of athleticism
Skipper is extremely affectionate and loves
people. He would love to sit in your lap if you let him, but he settles
for some nice petting and any belly rubs are greatly, greatly
appreciated. This boy is a lover.
Skipper will do best in a home
where he will get the daily exercise every young dog needs. He will do fine as your one and only, but would love to have another friendly canine companion if his owners work long
hours. He's a good boy and is a great candidate to go to work with
someone due to his calm settling nature (after exercise) and his ability
to get along so well with other dogs and all people.
This guy is a great sidekick for road trips too. He's very good in the car and loves to go places. A window seat is preferred!
Skipper is a
medium sized boy at 65 lbs. He knows his commands and walks nicely on
the leash. He may still be too much of a wiggler for tiny toddlers. Older
children over age 6 would be best for this guy. But he is wonderful with kids and loves them and he is a gentle boy.
Skipper is a
healthy and beautiful Weimaraner. He should gain about
5-10 lbs. and will fill out to be stunning. His coat was a little dry so he is getting his fish oil pills
every day and he is already looking even MORE handsome. This beauty is really just the most wonderful boy around.
Skipper is neutered, up to
date on vaccines, and microchipped. All that's needed now is a loving,
active home for this gem of a Weim.
If you are looking for a very friendly dog who is perfect with other dogs, cats, and all people, Skipper may be for you!
Sydney is a stunning Blue Weimaraner female. She is only 10 months old and she weighs 75 lbs.
Sydney has the shiniest, most beautiful coat. She is a purebred Weimaraner in the rare blue color that we hardly ever see. While she is lovely to look at, her temperament is equally lovely.
Sydney came to us when her family realized that they did not have the time to commit to raising her. Weimaraner puppies in particular need at least one member of the family to be with them most of the time. They do not do well left alone, and Sydney would get too lonely when they were at work. So they made the decision to let us find the perfect home for her. As they grow older they can be left alone for longer periods of time, but as pups they get very lonely so we will only consider families that have plenty of time to give to raising her.
Sydney gets along well with all other dogs, big and small, and even with kitties! She has also been around small children. She does well at the dog park and would love to have another doggie friend to play with at home.
She is totally housetrained and cries when it's time to go out to let you know.
She has not had any formal training or obedience classes, yet she does very well on a leash, staying close to your side throughout the walk without pulling. We will require the family that adopts her to enroll in and complete a basic obedience course. Weims are very bright, and she will benefit greatly from formal training so that she knows her boundaries.
Sydney is a healthy, happy young girl. She is vet checked and approved, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and scheduled for spay.
Meet Jillian, a sweet butterball yellow female purebred Labrador of just about 4 years. She's wiggly, happy, and LOVES attention - as much attention as she can get.
This medium sized doll baby is just 64 lbs. She is a very pale white yellow with a pretty face and a constant smile.
Jillian loves to be with her person. She is a true velcro doggie. She loves all the attention if she can get it and will give a little correction to her foster brother Labs if they get in her way of being pet so she sometimes needs to be reminded she is NOT a princess although she thinks she is.
Despite this, she is very good with other dogs. She loves to be with friends but doesn't play much with other dogs. She enjoys their company on hikes and at dog park but even in the house she will try to be closer to her person than the other dogs.
Jillian is cat curious. She occasionally chases her foster kitty sister but then sometimes ignores her. She is not our top choice to go with kitties, but if the cat is very dog savvy it could work. But it may be better to place her without them.
Jillian is good on the leash preferring to walk with her person. She is AMAZING off leash staying right with you and coming when you call her. She likes to have her person in sight at all times.
Jillian loves all people and rarely if ever barks - even if someone comes to the door. So she is not a great watchdog and would likely lick a burglar. She loves people and is good with children. She may be a bit too wiggly to go with tiny toddler though as she occasionally gets bouncy and bounces up and down with glee.
Jillian will do best in a home where she is the center of attention. She would do great with kids to play with her and give her even more attention. She would do best in a home where she need not spend long days alone.
Because she is still a young girl at 4, she does need her daily exercise. A good walk of about an hour is lovely for her. She doesn't do much at dog park so hiking, beach trips, and walking with her person is best for exercise. She would love to follow you on the trails and will stay close off leash.
Jillian is a good girl in the car and house. She is not yet 100% on her housebreaking skills but we are getting close. Mostly because she doesn't want to leave your side to go out. This is partly her anxiety over losing her home. So sometimes she will hold it too long and then have an accident. We feel certain she will be 100% on her potty skills very, very shortly.
Jillian knows sit, stay, and shake. She will sit and wait at the door before you go out if you tell her too. She doesn't chew, dig or bark and is a very good girl.
Jillian is a VERY velcro dog so unless you are a family that loves your dog close by you all the time, Jillian will not be your girl. If you enjoy a close companion who is perfect off leash, perfect meeting other dogs, and lovely with all people, Jillian may be for you.
Jillian is healthy, spayed, microchipped, wormed, and up to date on vaccines. She is recovering from a staph infection on her neck which is healing nicely.
Meet Zooey, a darling little purebred female Weimaraner puppy of about 15 weeks. This little beauty is about as sweet as they come and just wants to be loved.
Zooey is a BEAUTIFUL girl. But she is also very smart and very confident. She is one of the smarted Weim puppies we've seen.
Zooey is wonderful with other dogs and kitties. After all she is just a little puppy still and just loves everyone.
She is good girl who is learning her basic commands, housebroken, and is being crate trained. She is doing so, so well. And her new family will for sure want to set up for a puppy obedience class with this little lady once she comes home.
Zooey came to us from a loving family who had an accidental litter with their two AKC Weimaraners. They found good homes for her siblings and it was important to them that Zooey find the best home also which is why Zooey came to us.
This healthy, happy girl loves toys, loves cuddling and really, really loves her 2 young foster Weimaraner brothers. They cuddle, wrestle and play and foster mom takes them everywhere in the car so Zooey loves going in the car now.
Zooey is of course a Weimaraner. Weim babies really need a home where someone is home most of the time when they are babies. They don't like to be left all alone for long periods and can get into trouble.
Because Zooey is so intelligent and confident even though a baby still, we feel she will do her best in a very Weim savvy home that will give her a lot of training and socialization so she can be the very best adult dog when she is full grown.
Zooey will do beautifully in training because she really wants to please and is so smart.
Zooey will do fine with children, but toddlers will need to be considered on a case by case basis as new owners need to have the time a new puppy requires. And puppies can be playful, jumpy and wiggly too knocking toddlers over. Even though Zooey is tiny now at just 30 lbs, she will grow fast.
Zooey is up to date on vaccines having received all 3 rounds of her puppy shots and she is microchipped. She must be spayed by 6 months of age.
Talk about a perfect dog. This is Sebastian, a 3 year old beautiful purebred Labrador Male of about 65 lbs. who is so good, so calm, and just an absolute joy to be with. This totally trustworthy gentle boy is as close to perfect as they get. He is well behaved, super mellow in the house, gentle, wants to please and absolutely loves all people and all other dogs. It just doesn't get any better.
Sebastian is finally available for adoption after a month of fostering due to severe kennel cough from the shelter. This turned into pneumonia and it took time for Sebastian to recover. Thankfully he is such a healthy dog that he did so well recovering and is now fully approved by our vet to meet families.
Sebastian is a gentle boy with medium energy. He loves to play with the other foster labs and share toys but after he is done playing he loves to quietly lay on his bed or at your feet like such a good boy.
He has absolutely no aggression whatsoever - just a submissive sweetheart. He even takes his treats gently. At dinner time Sebastian gets so happy. He loves his dinner! Sometimes he will make adorable little noises while you prepare his food, yet as much as he loves to eat, he can eat right next to the other Labs with zero issues over his or their food. What a good, good boy!
He loves lying on his dog bed along with his foster sister and brother who are a female Chocolate Labrador who he adores and a darling little male Pug. They will lay right near each other. He loves his foster siblings so much that we know he would love having another dog to share his life with.
Sebastian likes the crate too. He will go in on his own and sleep inside with the door open. Sometimes he just sleeps on his dog bed. He certainly doesn't need a crate with his good behavior.
Sebastian proved very quickly that he is such a good boy and can be trusted to be left in the house for hours with his friends with absolutely no destructiveness. He is a trustworthy boy and he is potty trained and very well mannered in the house.
Did we mention toys? Sebastian loves loves toys especially tennis balls. He and his foster sister love to play with their tennis balls, rolling around in the grass and tumbling over one another and they share so nicely. Sebastian also loves squeaky toys that are plush like. We hope his new home will buy him lots of plush squeaky toys as he so enjoys them.
He's a good boy in the car and likes running errands with his foster mom and dad. He waits in the car like a good boy and is happy to see where they are going next. He's a very happy and social boy.
We believe Sebastian would be ok with kitties but we have not tested him so we think we should not place him with them.
Sebastian is completely healthy, vet checked and approved! He is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, wormed and neutered.
If you would like to meet this very loving and wonderful boy, please complete an application to adopt and follow up with an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Meet Bo, an almost perfect yellow lab! He is a male of 5 years old. He is about 85 pounds and needs to lose about 10 pounds to get to his perfect weight, so he will gladly welcome you on walks & dog park visits to get in shape. He is a sweet dog who walks very well on the leash.
Bo came to us when his previous owner lost his home and just could not take Bo with him. Bo is pretty obedient - as he knows sit and down, and is learning stay and shake. He is a happy wiggly lab who does still get a little jumpy when he meets people, so he will need to be reminded to stay on all 4 paws and greet you with his perfect labbie smile & tail wag!
He is currently being fostered with another female lab of 6 1/2 years old. The two get along great. Bo really enjoys having her around. He doesn't look to her as a playmate, just enjoys the companionship of a doggie. He has also met many other dogs on our walks around the neighborhood, both large & small and he has done beautifully with all of them. He loves going to the dog park where he meets and greets lots of other dogs and gets to play fetch too! Bo loves to chase the ball, but is still learning that he needs to bring it all the way back to you, silly boy.
Bo is great in the house! He is not destructive and is housebroken. He settles well in the house, often lying at my feet, or on the floor next to the bed. Bo would do great placed in a home where he will have another doggie companion -- he doesn't need an active playmate doggie, just a friend to hang out with. Bo could be your one and only dog, but only if you don't work long hours. Left home by himself for many hours, Bo would likely get lonely as he did used to live with another doggie. He loves to carry dog bones & toys around in his mouth and wiggle & talk... it's the cutest thing ever!
Bo can be a jumpy and wiggly lab. Because of this he would be best placed with kids 6 and older. Overall he has a medium energy level, where given a couple good walks a day he will settle nicely. Of course he would also enjoy regular trips to the dog park where he can play with his doggie friends too. He rides great in the car!
Bo is neutered, microchipped and is up to date on his shots.
If you think Bo is a great match for your home, please be sure to fill out an application to adopt and contact email@example.com
Meet Jasper, a darling purebred chocolate Labrador male who is mellow, easy going, and as sweet as they come!
Jasper is 5 years old. He loves playing at dog park and has tons of friends. He is perfect with other doggies and loves all people.
Jasper came to us when his owner lost his home and had no other recourse than to give Jasper up. This easy going boy is perfect in the house, non destructive, crate trained, housebroken and cuddly.
Though Jasper is a mellow boy, he is also playful and fun. He has a great time at dog park chasing the ball. He loves his walks and does not pull on the leash. And Jasper is also very good in the car, jumping right in excited to see where he is going.
Jasper will do great in a home as your one and only or if you are gone longs days, he would do best with another friendly canine companion to keep company with.
He will do great with kids over age 6 as he is a big boy who wiggles and may knock toddlers over.
Jasper is a tad chunky and should lose about 10 lbs to be at a more ideal weight. He will do great on good food with lots of walks and will shed the excess weight easily. He is a healthy boy!
Jasper is calm in the house and settles down beautifully. He likes to lay by your feet while you watch TV. He especially loves his foster brother and the two like laying near each other. Jasper will do great in a home where he will get daily outings to dog park or nice walks. We do not know how Jasper will do with kitties. Jasper is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Farley is a beautiful shiny purebred black male Labrador of just one year. He weighs about 65-70 lbs and has a gorgeous thick Labby coat and pearly white teeth. He is such a gorgeous purebred Lab and such a total lover.
Farley came to us from a terrible Los Angeles County shelter where he was in danger of euthanasia. We went to visit Farley and spent a lot of time with him. It was clear that he was just such a good boy and a gorgeous purebred Lab so we make a decision then and there to rescue him and take him home.
Farley is a young dog - just about 1 year. He is playful, wiggly and has plenty of energy just as you would expect and want to see in a Lab his age. He loves to go for his walks and run around after tennis balls.
Farley is good on the leash but pulls just a little bit. Sometimes if he pulls hard he just stops and sits down. It's very cute. But he is learning more about going for walks and he seems to love it. He's really a pretty good boy on leash and doing so well.
At first Farley was a little shy of trucks and super loud noises and it's clear her never experienced that before. But he's great now and sees that loud noises are part of everyday life.
Farley was not used to going in a car and was a little timid about it. Once he was in the car he was fine. But now he is used to the car and doing great. It would be nice if his new owners will take him on errands and out and about in the car so he continues to see how fun car trips are. Especially going to dog park. As he sees going in the car means going to the park, he is learning to love it!
Farley is NOT good with kitties so no kittie for Farley!
He's very good with his foster Labrador brother and sister. His foster Labby sister is very dominant and gave him what for when he first arrived so he has accepted being low man on the totem pole very well. He enjoys playing with his foster Labby brother a lot.
He likes the ball, but mostly prefers chasing his foster siblings while they go to retrieve it. He likes to run and romp.
Farley does tend to jump and is a little mouthy like most young Labradors. Because of this he needs to be placed with children over the age of 6.
He did not know his commands but now he is really learning. No one ever taught him anything but in typical Lab fashion and true to the breed, he only wants to please and learn for his handler. Training will be easy with Farley. His new owners will want to work with him on training and maybe do a nice obedience class with him.
Farley is a young and happy Labrador. He will do best with an active owner that will take him to dog park and where he will get his good daily exercise. He likes to have fun. But he is also a calm Lab who settles beautifully in the house. He's the perfect mix of medium energy and fun and easy going mellow boy.
Farley will do great with another friendly young canine companion to keep company with and romp with or as your one and only. But most of the younger Labs do best with another dog if they are alone for long work days.
He is crate trained and is doing great. He sleeps well through the night and is quiet. He is housebroken from his crate training as well so he is ready to meet his new forever family.
This beautiful purebred Labrador youngster is happy, healthy, wiggly and full of life. He is just the best boy.
Farley is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Gunner, a perfectly handsome English black lab! He is a gorgeous boy of about 1 year old with pearly white teeth. He weighs 63 pounds and has the looks of a beautiful purebred Lab. He is an English bred lab, with a blocky head and shorter stature; he gets compliments on his looks everywhere he goes!
He is currently being fostered with another female lab of 6 1/2 years old. The two get along great. He is a playful pup who does great at the dog park where he gets to run & play with other doggies! Gunner has also met other dogs on our walks around the neighborhood, both large & small and he has done beautifully with all of them.
He doesn't show a desire to chase a ball, so playing fetch doesn't interest him. But he does like dog toys - and often takes multiple toys out of his toy basket as he can't decide which one is best! As a 1 year old he still finds things to munch on, but he redirects well when presented with a dog toy to chew on. So he will need some fun doggie toys and bones at his new home. In a puppy proofed home where the wrong items are not left out for him to get into, he will do great.
Gunner is a bit shy at first with new people, but he does warm up well. He feels very comfortable when other doggie friends are around and just loves to play. He loves to give kisses to the humans he warms up to! Gunner would do great in a home as an only dog or with another young doggie companion who will play with him.
Gunner was found as a stray and we rescued him from a shelter in Bakersfield just hours before he was going to be put down. Unbelievable because he is a fabulous dog! Stunning good looks, social with other dogs, and an overall playful, happy lab. He is now housebroken, but as all dogs - he should be watched at first in the house.
Gunner has been tested with cats and was curious, but nothing more. We believe he would do well in a home with dog-experienced cats.
Gunner is still a youngster, so does need some additional obedience training, but he is not high energy, so training should be relatively easy. Doing a puppy obedience class with him would be a great way to bond with Gunner and help him grow into a good adult canine citizen. He takes treats very gently - what a good boy he is! He is a bouncy, wiggly pup - so he would be best placed with kids 8 and older. Overall he has a medium energy level - like most younger labs, he does require daily exercise of about an hour - walking, jogging, or trips to the dog park are great for him.
Gunner now walks pretty well on a leash. He doesn't pull much, except when he sees another dog he wants to meet - then he will excitedly pull in the direction of the dog. He is great meeting other dogs on leash - both big and small. He is learning to heel and walk the pace of his person on the end of the leash, of course he will need reinforcement of this in his new home.
Gunner knows how to use a doggie door and rides well in the car too!
Gunner is neutered, microchipped, and is up to date on his vaccinations.
Meet Christy, a prancing little doe in a Labrador Body! If you are looking for a very calm, perfectly trained purebred female yellow Lab this is the one.
This darling super mellow girl had been in the same loving home all her life. Now the children are grown and moved away and life has changed it's circumstances and Christy's mom found herself in a position where she had to downsize to an affordable place that sadly had a no pets policy. So poor Christy lost her home.
Christy is healthy and a lithe 70 pounds. She is is in excellent health and just the happiest girl. Christy is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and spayed.
This angel is totally housetrained and non destructive in her home. She loves to settle by your feet and be a lovely companion. She is just easy, calm, and so, so mellow.
Christy loves her walks and loves her ball time. Also Christy adores fetching or swimming in the ocean or a pool to fetch. She enjoys being active and playful even though she settles down so perfectly at home. This little lady is shy initially but warms up quickly. During her photo opp she was prancing like a little deer and yipping with glee, thrilled to get attention and love and be with other Labby friends.
Christy is wonderful with other dogs, but she would love to be your one and only as she is such a people lover and companion. She will do fine alone while you are at work, but honestly she would enjoy someone who is home much of the time if possible.
It is very sad for Christy's family to give her up, but they wanted only the very best home for this girl who they have loved since puppyhood.
Christy is wonderful with all other dogs and cats. She is an excellent choice for a family looking for a gentle, trained, sweet companion who requires medium daily exercise and is great with cats and toddlers.
Christy is a young, perfectly healthy 10 year old purebred who still have many years ahead of her to give her new loving family. This girl is an outstanding choice for any family looking for a perfect dog with no issues who is mellow but still can be very active for hikes, swimming and other family fun. She will fit right into your life and make it complete.
Morrissey is a darling 2 year old male purebred Labrador. His dew claws are removed so we assume he is an AKC breeder bred Lab. He's about the sweetest boy you'll meet hands down.
Morrissey is a submissive boy who is very good with other dogs and all people. He is even good with kitties though he is curious. He prefers his toy to the kitties though he will give them nose kisses.
This boy is about 65 lbs and has a lighter chocolate coat. His coat is a bit lack luster and with a good diet and some fish oil he will be shiny and gorgeous in no time. Morrissey is also slightly cross eyed which doesn't affect his vision much but does make him especially cute.
Morrissey loves the tennis ball and retrieving. He even loves the chuck-it and likes to carry it around in his mouth. In fact he loves to carry all the toys around in his mouth happily wagging and parading them around.
This young boy has good energy but settles beautifully in the house. He is a calm boy inside and loves to lay right by you.
Morrissey is very good on the leash and doesn't pull. He has nice leash manners and knows "sit". We are working on his other commands.
Morrissey loves food and treats and isn't as gentle as he could be taking the treats. But we are teaching him "gentle" and he is doing so well that we think by the time he goes to his new home he will be very gentle taking treats. He has no food aggression and any one can put their hand in his bowl.
Morrissey came to us from the single highest kill shelter in all of California. He was scheduled for euthanasia and was in fact in line to be put down minutes before we got him out. It was very close for this boy and we are so lucky we found him soon enough. It's hard to imagine that fate for a dog that is this sweet and good.
Morrissey will do great with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only. He will do fine with children over 7 but is too mouthy with toys for little toddlers.
He's great in the car and settles right down for a ride. He loves to have a tennis ball in his mouth in the car but does fine without one too.
Morrissey is really just the sweetest boy with outstanding temperament. He is a typical Labrador with his personality and happiness. Ready to please. Loving. Loyal. and really about the happiest boy around.
Morrissey is a great dog for families that want a dog they can take just about anywhere. He would love to go to dog park or dog beach and will be good friends with all the other dogs.
If you have cats, Morrissey will get on fine with them.
This healthy boy is neutered, and up to date on shots.
Bart is an adorable purebred chocolate male Labrador of 1 year. This darling boy is just the best dog ever. He is calm, easy, wants nothing more than to please and is an excellent choice for families with little children due to his gentle submissive nature.
Bart is amazing with other dogs - all other dogs. He is fostered with several other dogs including a 14 week old puppy and an older alpha female and a couple of other males. He is non reactive and loves everyone and is very patient with the puppy which is rare.
Bart is a young boy who needs his daily exercise, but he is a lower to medium energy dog who does fine with a couple of walks a day. He especially enjoys his off leash hikes with his foster mom on some local trails and he is very good off leash continually watching his foster mom and wanting to please her by being obedient and coming when called.
His exception temperament is what makes Bart so special. He has all the things we look for in a good family dog. He is very easy to train and correct and takes great pride in doing what he is told. He goes right into his crate when told and even when the little puppy is getting corrected Bart will go in his crate and lay down to stay out of trouble. What a sweetie!
He is mostly about his people even though he is so well socialized with other dogs. He will do fine with another sweet canine companion or as an only dog getting all the attention. He is a faithful friend who would make a wonderful companion to anyone lucky enough to take him home forever.
Bart is very good at adjusting to your lifestyle. If he is home with a retired person he will lay at their feet. Or if his master wanted to take a jog Bart would be thrilled to go. He sort of fits right in with no trouble. All he needs to be truly happy and reach perfection is a loving family who will provide him structure and exercise and solid leadership. He is a submissive dog that does not want to be an alpha dog so leadership is important to keep Bart happy and secure. He loves that.
Bart is not a jumper and isn't mouthy so he will do great with little kids. He is housebroken and non destructive and great in the car too.
Bart is up to date on vaccines and microchipped. His new family will need to bring him to one of our local vets for neuter at our expense in another 2 weeks as he had kennel cough and we prefer to let him be well over that before neutering. The fact that he is so submissive and he has NOT been neutered is amazing. He will be a GREAT dog.
Meet Booker, the cutest ever 2 year old male purebred Labrador. If you love chocolate as much as we do, you cannot help but fall in love with Booker. Not only is this boy as gorgeous as they come, his temperament is sheer perfection.
For starters this young boy is the most calm and gentle dog in the world. He is a submissive sweet heart who is just perfect in every way.
He loves other dogs and all people and is wonderful with the children he is fostered with. He really does best with someone home during the day or with another friendly dog to keep company as he doesn't like being left alone by himself and will cry at times.
Booker is a mellow boy. He's a low key guy who goes with the flow. He's trustworthy and easy in the house and car and he is more of a lower to medium energy boy who doesn't need tons and tons of exercise to wear him out. He loves his walks and a couple nice walks a day are all he needs.
For such a young Lab Booker is so good he could be a therapy dog.
Booker is a very good boy in the house and likes his crate. He goes in when told and likes to sleep inside. He is quiet through the night and happy to get up and greet you in the morning.
Booker loves his foster mom and foster family including the children who love to pet and cuddle him.
Booker is good size Lab at about 75 lbs but he is such a gentle boy that his size doesn't matter. He certainly is not a large Lab like we have seen but his calm nature makes his size even less of an issue concerning toddlers.
Booker is a happy and healthy boy who just loves everyone. He's a big wiggler and loves to be pet.
Booker is a pretty special boy. We seldom see young Labs this well behaved and with such perfect temperament. Which ever lucky family adopts Booker will get such a prize. This dog is exceptional.
It's hard to imagine a dog like this being found in one of the highest kill Los Angeles County shelters and in danger of euthanasia. But it happens all the time. The day we met Booker, he was ours. There was no question about that. We were in love and we know you will be too.
It will be hard to find a dog this sweet, this calm and gentle at this age. he is just the BEST boy!
If you are looking for a well behaved calm gentle dog who is equally beautiful and purebred, Booker may be for you.
Bella 2 adopted!
Meet Bella 2, a lovely well trained Labrador/Golden Retriever mix female. This 7 year old sweetie is such a good girl and is a very energetic pup who loves the tennis ball and retrieving.
Bella's owner is at a place in her life where she needs to sell her home and move into a Senior Living Community. Although, they do allow small dogs, they don't allow dogs Bella's size of about 45-50 lbs. Her 85 year old owner has tears in her eyes at the thought of parting from her Sweet Bella. But it's because of this love she knows that it is best.
She loves Bella so much and she speaks to her in Italian. This is her best friend and parting with her is the hardest thing.
She wants Bella to go where they will not only love her as much as she does, but will take her on the daily walks she is accustomed to, and play ball with her too as Bella loves the ball and retrieving.
She will miss her companion laying at her feet while she paints, and sketches at her easel. But it will warm her heart to know her Bella is taken care of in a loving home.
Her owner has done a wonderful job with Bella. She is house trained, she has a sweet and friendly personality. Bella is an energetic girl at 7. But even though Bella has plenty of energy, she is a calm girl who settles at your feet and is very mellow in the house. Even when she is so excited to see you, she will not jump up on anyone.
She loves her tennis balls, loves to retrieve! As you can see, she is never without one!
She loves to be petted and her fur is as soft as a bunny's fur!
Bella walks beautifully on a leash, no pulling. Like all Labs and Golden Retriever's she get's very excited about her walks! She loves to take hold of the leash in her mouth as if say..Hurry up! Let's go!!
Bella will do wonderfully in most homes as she is very well trained and gentle with people. We do not know how she would do with cats. Bella will do fine with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only true love.
Bella is a healthy girl who is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. All she needs now is a new loving home to call her own.
Meet Dasher, a young handsome boy! He is a yellow male purebred lab of approximately 1 1/2 years old. He is about 65 pounds and has the looks of a beautiful American (field) Lab. Dasher has a dudley face where his eyes are light and his eyeliner and nose are lighter pink. He has a gorgeous, soft coat and is just a happy, wiggly lab!
Dasher was found as a stray and came to us from a local shelter. His previous owner did not claim him, so we were lucky enough to rescue him and now he is ready for his new forever home! He is pretty obedient - as he knows sit, stay, shake and is learning down.
He is currently being fostered with another female lab of 6 1/2 years old. The two get along great. Dasher has also met many other dogs on our walks around the neighborhood, both large & small and he has done beautifully with all of them. He loves going to the dog park where he meets and greets lots of other dogs and gets to play fetch too! He makes friends with other dogs easily and often takes the submissive role.
Dasher is an active dog and at 1 1/2 years old, he still requires lots of good exercise. We are looking for a family that loves to hike or run and will look forward to having Dasher join them on hikes, runs, jogs, dog park visits and more.
He is not destructive and doesn't appear to be a chewer at all. He settles well in the house, lying at my feet, or on the bed with me - he loves to cuddle and give kisses. Dasher would do perfectly well as an only dog in your household, or as a doggie companion.
Dasher is a bouncy and wiggly lab. Because of his wiggly, bouncy nature, he would be best placed with kids 7 and older. Overall he has a medium-high energy level.
He is crate trained, and when left at home in the crate, he barks at first and then after just a couple minutes, settles down well and goes to sleep.
Dasher is getting neutered this week, he is already microchipped and is up to date on his shots.
Meet McDuff! Oh this guy is a real cutie! He is happy, sweet, gorgeous, and just the best boy with a giant blocky head and stocky English body. McDuff is the best! McDuff is a 3 year old yellow male purebred English Labrador male. He is about 85 lbs, a real wiggler and a boy that loves, loves, loves belly rubs.
Kind of hard to believe a dog this lovely and this gorgeous was found in a high kill shelter in danger!
This guy is submissive with other dogs and has great doggie manners. He gets along great with all other dogs - big, little, even dominant not very nice dogs. He takes everything in stride.
McDuff doesn't play too much with other dogs but he's starting to. We think he never really learned how to play, but the more he is around other playful dogs, the more he tries and he has been getting more playful and frisky.
McDuff is a medium energy boy who loves his walks and is good on the leash. He also loves to go jogging whenever you are in the mood. He also likes the dog park where he greets every single dog and person that comes in.
McDuff is a good boy in the car and house. He's totally housebroken and is learning to do well in the crate too. He is pretty trustworthy in the house, but he did destroy a sweater one day so you just never know. He'll stick to his toys, but he is puppyish and can male a mistake. Since the sweater incident, he has not gotten in any more trouble so we are very optimistic that McDuff has learned that sweaters are NOT part of his toy ensemble.
McDuff loves to cuddle and be pet. He likes to be close to his person in the house. But at dog park, he likes to be sort of on his own walking around sniffing and making friends. We haven't had him offleash on a trail yet but we think he will do fine once he is 100% bonded to his person. Until then, probably no offleash unless the area is fenced in like dog park.
He's a big wiggler and may knock a toddler over but he will do fine with children as he doesn't jump and isn't mouthy.
He is not good with kitties at all so no kitties for McDuff. He will do great with another friendly canine companion or as an only dog. He needs his really good walk or jog every day because he is young and needs to burn off some energy - especially before being left alone, but he isn't a hyper or high energy dog and settles very nicely.
McDuff is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. This healthy happy Labrador is ready for a family of his own.
Meet Julie, a lovely purebred black female Labrador who is all smiles and kisses. This 4 year old jet black 70 pounder is a lovely combination of playful energy and nice indoor mellowness.
She does need her daily exercise as she is still a young Lab at age 4, but she is the perfect mix of fun and easy.
Julie came to us from one of the nicer Los Angeles County shelters were she was found as a stray and then adopted out to a family. The family brought her back the very next day saying they weren't allowed to have a dog at their apartment.
No matter the reason a dog is returned, it is never a good mark on their record to show that they have been returned to a shelter, so it was good that our volunteer was there when Julie came back. We met her, played with her, and promptly scooped her up and took her home. She seemed to take it all in stride and hopped right into the car for her ride.
Julie knows the sit command and seems to know the down command also though we do need to work on that one a bit more.
Julie is a really lovely girl. She loves toys - especially soft ones with squeakers and she also loves retrieving the tennis ball though first she likes to get it and run around a bit happily.
Julie settles beautifully in the house after she has had her exercise. She likes to be close to you and nap at your feet.
Julie is good with other dogs and good on the leash. But what's especially nice about Julie is that she seems fine with kitties. She is fostered with a cat and they get along just fine! Julie mostly ignores kitty but sometimes gives her kisses.
Julie is totally housebroken and uses the doggie door. She seems trustworthy in the house but has only been left alone for brief periods so we are still observing that to be sure.
She is a very good girl in the car and just lays down while you drive.
We think Julie will do fine with another friendly canine companion as she is wonderful with the 2 Labs she is fostered with and other dogs she has met but she does truly love her person and likes all the attention if she can get it so she will probably do fine as an only dog as well. Because the foster homes always have other dogs, we never know how a dog will do all alone without another dog when no one is home so we always ask families to understand all dogs need an adjustment period if they are to be an only dog with a family that is gone all day.
Julie is a good eater and will eat all her food when you feed her pretty quickly. She loves food and is currently on a grain free kibble Taste of the Wild which she LOVES. She also loves treats. We think Julie could turn into a fatty if her new owners aren't careful because she loves to eat. But currently she is a slim lovely girl and we would love to see it stay that way.
Julie will be fine with children though any playful Lab can knock over toddlers. She does get a little playful with her toys so perhaps she may be too much for toddlers. And because she loves food, she could be opportunistic and steal snacks from a tiny tot.
Julie is healthy, spayed, and up to date on shots. She is also wormed and has a microchip and is current on flea control.
If you feel Julie is right for your family, please complete an application to adopt and follow up with an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Julie is still pretty new in foster so we may update her bio as we learn more about her.
Meet Spencer, a beautiful smaller sized AKC registered purebred Weimaraner male. This gorgeous boy is just unbelievable. He is amazing with all people, all dogs, and even kitty cats! They just don't come any better.
Spencer is a stunning purebred Weimaraner of 5 years. He is healthy, loves to play with other dogs at dog park, smart, well adjusted, and submissive.
Spencer spent his life as a loved dog but came to us when his family fell on hard times and was forced to leave their home. Unable to find housing permitting dogs, they were forced to give Spencer up. They only wanted the best for Spencer which is why he is with us.
Spencer lived with another dog - a French Bulldog who was already adopted. He is very good with smaller dog and loved living with another dog.
Spencer enjoys meeting everyone and especially other dogs. He greets them nicely and will engage in play if they are in the mood. He's a gentleman with very good doggie manners.
Spencer is wonderful in the car and rides nicely even with other dogs. He is calm and sweet and can be a good buddy on trips and errands.
Spencer is pretty good on the leash too and heels with gentle correction.
Spencer will do best in a home where he will get lots of dog park trips and trips to dog beach or where he will have another friendly canine companion to hang out with. He is a young dog so he will need his daily exercise though he is not a hyper dog and settles beautifully in the home.
Spencer will do fine with children over age 6. He could knock toddlers down.
Spencer is an excellent choice for families with kitties as he could care less about them and basically ignores them.
Spencer is housebroken, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and neutered. He is ready to find his forever home.
This is Hope, a lovely pale yellow purebred female Labrador of about 1 year. This little love bug is the sweetest, calmest, most mellow girl you will ever meet for a 1 year old. And her sweetness makes her even more lovely.
Hope came to us from a high kill shelter where she was in terrible and urgent danger. She was already sick with pneumonia and was scheduled for euthanasia when we found her. She was severely underweight and required immediate veterinary treatment. Since then, Hope has made a full recovery, is doing very well, and is putting on much needed weight.
Hope is the biggest lover and cuddler. She loves to be snuggled up with you and get pet or just lay at your feet and be close to you. She is calm and low key even though she is still very young at only a year and prefers her people to anything else - even other dogs.
Hope is very good with other dogs but she does prefer her person above all else. She would be a great therapy dog with such an attentiveness to her human. She will do fine as an only dog or with another sweet canine companion to share time with.
Hope has never known much of a home life we think. She is only now learning to play with toys and dogs. At first she didn't know about toys at all. But as she learns, she is really having a good time.
Hope loves belly rubs more than anything in the world so her new owner needs to commit to at least 3 belly rubs (and numerous kisses) every day. She also loves to be brushed and stroked and will sit pretty for you while you brush her.
Hope is not a high energy dog. She enjoys her walks and time out with her person, but she doesn't need tons and tons of exercise.
Hope has just been housebroken and uses the doggie door. It would be great if her new home had a doggie door for her to use if her family is not home during the day so she can let herself out.
Hope has a particular fondness for socks and will take them out of the hamper and carry them around so socks need to be put away. She just thinks socks are the very best thing in the world! Because she is so mellow we forget that the truth is Hope IS a puppy!
Hope is a little shy and still learning about the world. Her new family should help her continue to shine and learn.
Hope is healthy, up to date on shots, spayed and microchipped.
Meet Ranger! Ranger is 1-2 year old GORGEOUS, athletic Weimaraner that was probably used for stud, as we had him neutered when we found him at the shelter. He is outgoing, friendly and is just wanting to find his forever home!
It's hard to imagine a dog this beautiful and purebred at a shelter, but we find them there in need and in danger all the time.
Ranger makes friends quickly, and loves other dogs. He is already making himself at home with his 2 foster lab brothers. He is good with other dogs and that's the important thing. He will be a great dog for dog park or dog beach.
He is not food aggressive, though he needs to gain a little bit of weight, so he loves his food!
Ranger is a young Weimaraner, and will need lots of daily exercise, trips to dog park and dog beach! He is so beautiful, he will surely make his new owner proud to see him running, enjoying himself! A young dog like this left to his own devices will surely get into trouble, so counters need to be kept free of food and clutter, and while he doesn't steal food, he is happy to clean up after you!
This healthy stunning boy loves to do stuff and will do best with an owner who will love to accompany him on trails, beach trips and other fun things. But Ranger is also a calm boy in the house so he is a great all around boy!
Ranger is completely housebroken, and is not a barker, even in the middle of a pack serenade! Ranger loves to run and would be a great hiking partner!
Ranger is a medium-sized Weim at 70lbs. or so, and while he LOVES to give kids kisses, he is also a wiggly boy so kids over 6 would be best, and families with children under 6 need to be considered case by case. He can easily knock over a young child without meaning to do any harm.
Ranger loves to be played with, and while he isn't so great at bringing back toys right now, he could easily be trained to play fetch. He loves to play, even with little kids!
Ranger tends to pull on the leash, so a martingale collar would be best and he is easily correctable if you are consistent. He will make someone a terrific best friend! He loves to be right by your side!
Ranger has not been tested with kitties, so unless someone is willing to bring their feline friend to meet him at his foster mom's home, families with kitties will not be considered. He LOVES to run and chase things!
Ranger does fine with other dogs, or would do great as your one and only, if you make sure not to leave him by himself for too long. Weims just need their people around, that's just when they do best and really are able to bond with their owners.
Mona is a darling sooooo sweet, petite purebred Weimaraner of only 50 pounds. This stunning fawn like little girl is so delicate and loving and such a gentle soul you just want to hold her a treasure her. She is wonderful with cats, dogs, and children. Just a doll.
Mona came to use from a horrendous situation. She was used as a breeding bitch and although she is only 1 year she has already had a litter of puppies for sale. Again putting money ahead of the dog.
Mona was left in the back yard with other dogs. She was never loved, touched or cared about. Consequently when we got her, she was perfect with other dogs but timid and shy with people. But she is now a different dog. Happy, loving, and just a doll baby. She wags her tail, smiles, and comes in close to cuddle. It's just wonderful to see her coming out of her shell and learning how much love she can give and get from people.
We feel so lucky and blessed to have Mona with us. This little girl is such a treasure. She is a submissive sweet heart with such gentleness to her and we feel so fortunate that we can help her to begin her new life with a loving family.
Mona has spent so much time alone in her young life that we would love to find her a home where she will not be left alone for super long days. She will do beautifully in a home where at least one person is around now and then.
She will do beautifully with another friendly canine companion as she loves other dogs and is so good with all dogs.
Mona will also do great with kitties as she ignores the cats she has fostered with and she is so gentle. Mona will do great with children as she loves them.
Mona is wonderful in the car and is a good girl. She rides quietly like a little lady and is a good girl if you need to leave her to run into the store to do an errand.
Mona is a young Weim but is also very calm so she will do best in a home where she'll get her daily exercise and trips to dog park and dog beach, but she is also a calm mellow girl who can lay at your feet or snuggle up to you during quiet times.
Since Mona had a bad start in life, her new owners should be gentle trainers who will not be hard on her. She is so sweet and wants to please that harsh training methods, yelling, and even pinch collars are just too harsh for her. Positive reinforcement training is definitely the way to go with Mona and you will see very quick results.
Mona is really just a priceless gem. She needs a home that will treasure her and love her deeply.
Mona is healthy, spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Awe! Look at this darling sweetheart! This is Velvet, a so-lovely pure black female Labrador of 2 years and about 68 lbs. This gentle low key girl is so loving and and calm and just a joy to be with.
Velvet came to us from a very high kill Los Angeles County shelter where she was in danger. Not only are all dogs in danger in some of these shelters, but black dogs - even purebred Labradors who are black - are in the highest danger of euthanasia. This is partially because some people are afraid of black dogs, and partially because black dogs are not as easily seen in the dark kennel areas of shelters. But boy do we love the black Labbies!
This super soft, jet black girl has the shiniest most beautiful coat. Her pretty face has such soulful eyes. It's hard not to fall head over heals in love very quickly with her.
Velvet is a calm and low key girl who loves her person. She is good with other dogs but will do perfectly as an only dog as she prefers her person or people to dogs. She is also good with children but she doesn't seek them out. We think if she lived with maybe one very sweet loving child she would be head over heals in love and bond very closely with him or him. but we don't think she would love a household full of loud children even though we know she would be gentle with them.
Velvet is excellent on the leash and doesn't pull. She is wonderful passing other dogs and people and is a perfect lady.
Velvet is a tiny bit shy when you first meet her but she warms up quickly to you for pets and hugs.
This gentle and sweet girl is just perfect for a family looking for a young dog that is also calm and who will do well with simple daily exercise without needing hours of exercise like some young labs do.
She is perfect to go to work with you to as she is so well behaved and easy. Velvet is also wonderful with cats. She mostly ignores them but may go in for a kiss now and then. If you are looking for a very sweet, loving, gentle and calm Lab who is good with kitties, Velvet may be for you.
Velvet is healthy, spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
This super darling Purebred Yellow baby girl has just had babies of her own! She seems barely even 2 years old and has the exciting and happy social energy of a pup without any of the annoying puppy habits!
She came to us covered in dead fleas, filthy and so skinny, the way lots of dogs are from the shelter plus she was just through weaning a litter. Her ribs and hipbones were exposed, with some fly strike on her ears.
Trixy weighed just 47 pounds and came to foster with zero bad habits! She will be about 60-65 pounds when she gets to her perfect weight. Right now she is super petite, and dangerously cute!
When she first got to her foster home, she had 2 nice warm shampoos and a nice slathering of Cuddly Coat Conditioner, before feasting on a big meal and checking out all the dog beds to pick her favorite. She was previously housetrained, a non jumper, friendly with all new Labbies without the need for a proper or formal intro and loves men and women equally.
This beauty has a thick otter tail and is starting to fill in with 3 nutritious grain free meaty meals a day! She takes treats gently, sits and waits for her food, does not counter surf or jump on people!
At the giant off leash dog park, she runs through the baseball diamonds and around 3 softball fields making big loops, greeting all dogs and people and circling back to the pack. She will run happily for an hour!
She loves walking, and wrestling with her 15 month old English foster sister and some of her new friends, boys and girls!
Every day is the BEST DAY of Ms. BeBe's life...She already has so many nicknames, because her saucy and sweet energy makes you smile and just blurt out a different endearment every time a word flies out of your mouth! We'd like to see her go to a home with another young playful dog and an active family who enjoys daily outdoor outings.
At home, she follows you closely, settles near you on her bed and is pure joy. Beatrice also rides nicely in the car, and relishes getting in your warm seat as soon as you exit!
This little social velcro girl is really something special, and we'd like her to go to a home ready to cherish her for years to come! Beatrice will do fine with children and like any Lab could be too large for tiny toddlers. She is perfect with all dogs and people but we do not know how she would do with kitties so we will not be placing her with them.
Beatrice is up to date on vaccines, wormed, spayed and housetrained! She is trustworthy in a nice house and is seriously a social butterfly! She will be a popular girl in demand, so please please fill out an application before contacting her foster mom as it will be very difficult to contact interested parties before reading your application.
Allie is an
adorable purebred yellow female Labrador puppy. Allie is 7 months old.
She's almost white and is a dudley, meaning she has a liver colored
nose and pinking eyeliner. She really is the most darling girl.
is very, very sweet. She is a happy wiggly Labrador who loves toys,
loves the ball and loves all other dogs.
is a submissive pup with other dogs and likes to lick them under their
chin. She does very well at the dog park where she has lots of friends
and especially likes to go up and say hello to all the people there and
show them her ball or wait for a pet.
Allie is loves children and
she will do best with children over age 5.
is also very good with kitties. She sometimes wants to play with a cat,
but if the cat gives her a correction, she runs away. She may chase
kitties if she is playful. But she will not hurt a cat and is a good
candidate for families with kitties.
Allie is a young girl who is
learning her basic commands beautifully! It would be lovely for her new
owners to consider doing a puppy obedience class. She tends to pull on
the leash a bit so
we are leash training her. She is currently only about 55 lbs but will
grow to be 65 as an adult so good leash skills will be important.
a true sweetheart. She is not a high energy girl and is pretty calm.
She is young so it's always best to provide a lot of suitable toys for a
dog this age, but she is so good, non destructive, and just a joy.
darling white lab puppy has superior temperament and
will grow up to be a wonderful dog who is great with everyone and all
Allie is spayed, up to date on shots and microchipped.
Da Tou adopted!
Meet Da Tou, our newest, most amazing, purebred male Labrador from Taiwan. This darling boy is a 2-3 year old, 70 lb, sweetheart who is nothing short of perfection.
Da Tou was rescued by one of our rescue partners TUAPA in Taiwan. We work with TUAPA to bring purebred Labradors with no option short of death to the United States where they can be adopted into loving forever homes.
This healthy, happy, and beautiful purebred boy is absolutely amazing with all other dogs and all people. He is gentle, playful, and a perfect gentleman that can go virtually anywhere with his person.
Da Tou is a submissive, extremely balanced dog who has all the qualities we all dream of when we consider a dog to share our lives with. He is loving, social, and of superior temperament.
He is a young and happy boy who loves his walks, adores dog park, and loves his toys. He shares toys nicely with other dogs and is such a good boy in the house. At dog park, he has many friends and he loves to chase and wrestle with another willing play partner.
He also has enjoyed hiking with a pack of dogs where he made many new friends and learned all about gophers!
Da Tou wants to please and is a quick study on his commands in English. He is a good boy on the leash though he can pull a little when he's extra happy and excited to go do things. But he can be walked on a plain flat collar and does very well with simple corrections if he starts to pull.
Da Tou settles beautifully. He is a lovely travel companion as he is perfect in the car.
Da Tou is wonderful taking treats and perfect around his food while eating next to the other dogs. Even nasty dogs he has met don't phase him. He's just too happy and too submissive to care.
Da Tou is young so he will do best in a home where he will get lots of dog park time and walks, hikes and trips to dog beach. He really loves other dogs so would be very happy with another friendly canine companion. But he will do fine as an only dog too, we just prefer his new family take him on lots of doggy visits or dog park so he can see friends which he so loves to do.
He is a perfectly tempered dog so he is an excellent candidate for families looking to adopt a dog they can walk in dog heavy urban areas or take to work as he is such a gentleman and so mild mannered.
Da Tou will do fine with children but like any Lab may be too much dog for tiny toddlers who can be knocked over.
We do not know how Da Tou would do with kitties but he does desire to chase birds so we think no kitties is a good bet for this boy.
Da Tou came from an area where there are simply no options for a dog to be adopted. Without us, Da Tou would surely be killed. We feel so honored to have been able to bring Da Tou here where he can begin the life he truly deserves.
If you are looking for a very friendly, easy going boy who is outstanding with all other dogs and people, this boy may be for you.
Da Tou is healthy, wormed, up to date on vaccines, and neutered.
Tessa is a breed-standard perfect, 70 lb., Weimaraner that looks as if she was used for breeding. This beauty is about 4-5 years old but was listed at 6. We do NOT think Tessa is 6 though she is a very calm girl.
We found Tessa at a high kill shelter, turned in by her owner for "fighting" with his other dogs. What a joke that was. She is about as good as they get with all other dogs. She LOVES other dogs and gets along beautifully with every dog she has met.
We guess that she was used for breeding and was turned in after making enough puppies for her backyard breeder owner. Their loss is our gain, as Tessa is an AMAZING dog that has many great gifts and would be a perfect addition to any family!
Tessa is being fostered with 3 other dogs and gets along well with all of them, even the alpha female. The first night found her cuddled with her foster sister, another young Weimaraner. She is the prefect lady at dog park, and while she enjoys other dogs, she checks back in with her person quite frequently. She knows basic obedience commands, and even shakes! She isn't protective or obsessed with toys, so she is not going to be a problem for another dog that is protective of its things. Tessa loves every dog she meets, so we know her previous owner was only interested in her to make money.
Unlike most Weims, Tessa is an OVERTLY friendly greeter of people, making friends with strangers at dog park, and coming up close during first introductions. She is fine being left in the house alone, and prefers sleeping in her bed or on your bed instead of pestering you all day. She would be a terrific dog for someone that works during the day, as long as she got walked in the evening. Tessa is a mellow, easy-going dog that looks to her person for calming reassurance and affection. She is perfectly housebroken. Tessa would be a great addition to any family with other dogs or would do fine as your one and only love.
Tessa was briefly placed with kitties and seemed fine with them, so homes with feline friends will definitely be considered. Also, Tessa is being fostered with 2 young toddlers and a teenager, and she seems to like the kids, she is not aggressive or hyper around them, so she'd be fine with a family with children, as long as she had a quiet place to retreat to, if needed. She is a medium-sized Weim, so people with really small children will need to consider if her size will be an issue, though she tries to steer clear of the kids and be gentle, accidents do happen and little kids can get in the way of a dog going out to potty.
Tessa is a perfect lady while eating and takes treats nicely out of your hand. While she does hover while you eat, she is not a food stealer. She eats with the other dogs and is a perfect lady if a human hand or dog nose gets in her bowl. Tessa is sleeping in her dog bed all night without a peep or scratch at the door. Many Weims are not good being separated from their pack, while Tessa is happy sleeping with a teenager in a closed bedroom, never making a peep while the other dogs fight for space on the couch. She is a wise dog that recognizes the opportunity for affection just for her!
Tessa also does not mind having her ears cleaned or her feet touched, which is a plus! She enjoys baths with warm water and doesn't run all over the house after them, soaking the furniture, instead standing still to get dried off and loved. Tessa loves to walk and just a gently reminder to "heel" finds her right back at your side. She will sit while you stop to chat to people and is only vaguely interested in passing dogs. She is a perfect lady! She also LOVES to ride in the car, and a command of "load up" finds her already in the back of your car! She settles nicely for a ride and would love to accompany you on errands, never barking or being destructive.
Tessa is healthy, spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on all her vaccines.
Give Me A Hug, And I'll Follow You To The End of the Earth! That's what Muddy says!
Muddy is a beautiful cuddly 4-5 year old chocolate purebred Labrador of a perfect 65 lbs. This loving sweet boy is housebroken, non destructive, and absolutely loves other dogs and people. He cannot share enough of his love.
Muddy was a shelter staff favorite at the shelter which is why they contacted us. He was overlooked by potential adopters because he had a lump on his leg requiring surgical removal. Most adoptive families don't want to take on a surgery right after adopting a dog so poor Muddy waiting and waiting and one day he came home with us.
With our limited funds taking on another surgery would be expensive but we were hard pressed to leave this boy to die because his temperament is exactly what we look for in all the lucky dogs that come to rescue!
Muddy has been neutered, had a nice teeth cleaning, been microchipped, received all of his vaccines and had a complete and successful removal of his hind leg tumor! His sutures are out and he is running around happily loving life. His lump was a grade 2 mast cell completely removed with clean margins so we could not be happier for Muddy. His new family will want to keep him on a good grain free food to support his immune system. Actually all Labs should be on a grain free diet.
Muddy loves his foster mom and 2 foster labby siblings and they love him. But it is now time for Muddy to find his very own family.
Muddy is an energetic dog that loves to do things. He does not do well without his exercise and left alone all day. He gets nervous and anxious. With someone home most of the time and nice daily exercise, Muddy will be the perfect family dog. He will also do best with another friendly canine companion. We do not know about kitties though so no kitties for this bear cub.
Muddy is great with all people big and small and all dogs big and small. He is happy and submissive. He has a low soft bark, takes treats gently and is not mouthy so will do well with children, and most important, he looks super handsome in purple and orange!
Whoever opens their hearts and homes to this amazingly loving creature will be rewarded with the SWEETEST CHOCOLATE LOLLY of the Bunch!
Meet Rummy, a super handsome purebred yellow male Labrador who is 7 years YOUNG! This gorgeous athletic boy is a very young healthy boy who loves hiking, swimming, and tons of other activities. If we did not KNOW for a fact that Rummy was 7 years old we would have guessed him at age 3 at the most. He is a very young dog.
Rummy is a wonderful active and affectionate Labrador who has been raised with toddlers and is amazing with kitties. He has been living with 2 cats and he is very good with them.
Rummy has come to us as his loving owners' circumstances have changed dramatically and they no longer can care for their beloved boy. We promised them we would find Rummy only the best home.
Rummy is a pretty well trained calm dog who has lots of energy for fun activities and who loves to be part of his person's life. He will do best in a home where he can go on hikes and to the beach with his owners. He absolutely LOVES swimming in the ocean and will charge the waves. He's a good swimmer.
Rummy settles beautifully in the house and is well behaved and trustworthy. he is also great in the car and can go anywhere with you. If you are looking for a best friend this boy is it.
Rummy has been living with a 1year old baby and loves her. He gives her kisses and lets her pull on his ears. He is a large boy so he could absolutely knock a toddler down without meaning to, but he is very gentle with little ones and tollerates them very well. If you have older children he will be perfect with them. And he will do fine with toddlers so long as you realize they could be knocked down here and there.
If you have cats, Rummy is a great choice too since he lived with 2 cats his whole life.
Rummy is good with other dogs but really does love his people more.
Rummy is healthy, neutered and up to date on shots.
If you are looking for a kid and cat friendly dog of excellent health, temperament, and looks, Rummy is the whole package.
Cole Porter adopted!
Cole Porter is a gorgeous, smooth, shiny black jazzy boy - as cool and cuddly as can be. This GORGEOUS close to show-quality Labrador is as sweet inside as he is beautiful outside. They simply don't get any better.
Cole is a young boy at just 20 months old with a super shiny black coat and one of the most handsome Bench Bred English Boys we have seen with a big blocky head and pearly white teeth.
Cole was left in the backyard with his yellow sister where they were never given any attention. Eventually Cole and his sister were taken to a shelter and his sister was adopted leaving Cole all alone. It's sad to think someone spent a lot of money on 2 beautifully bred purebred Labs and then just tired of them when they were still so young, leaving them alone in a yard with zero human attention. What a sad waste of our very favorite breed. The BEST breed!
After his sister was adopted from the shelter, Cole was scared and all alone having no idea what was going on and why he was in a cage in a scary place. When we pulled him out of the shelter he was afraid on his ride to the groomer and then to foster. Our hearts just broke for this sweet confused boy.
But now Cole realizes he is in just the very best ever place of his entire life! His photoshoot day was the happiest day ever for Cole posing for shots with his new five other Labby friends! He so enjoyed being with lots of other happy Labbies and lots of loving people who gave him attention and treats.
Cole is extremely happy in foster and is wanting to learn and be the best Lab. He has a good heart and will be an outstanding dog.
Cole is doing perfectly with his housetraining and is being a good boy in the house. We feel he will be ready to meet his forever family on Valentines/Presidents Day Weekend because he is doing so, so well!
Cole loves to run around with a soft toy in his mouth. He likes to show his toy off and be proud. Cole takes treats gently from his person and he walks nicely on the leash with a prong collar.
Cole's new family must be committed to a basic obedience class to work on his basic commands: sit and stay and off. He will be a wonderful dog park dog as he loves the other dogs. And he should always be in an enclosed area until he learns his new name and stays with his new pack routinely.
We don't know how he would do with kitties but he is a really nice playful boy who extends his darling play bow to all!
Cole will do best in a home with another friendly canine companion to be his buddy or will do fine as your one and only if you do not work super long days. He won't be happiest as an only dog left alone all day.
Cole is a healthy boy who is neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped.
If you feel Cole Porter is the boy for your family, please complete an application to adopt and then follow up with an e-mail to TheRoseGarden21@aol.com
Dodger 2 adopted!
Meet Dodger 2! He is a big 85 lb pure black Labrador who is about as goofy and adorable as they come. This gorgeous hunk of Lab is a huggy, kissy, wiggler who thinks EVERYTHING in life is wonderful. He is the happiest dog on the planet.
Dodger is a young boy at only 1 year so he's still a big puppy in many ways. He's silly, sweet, happy, and cute. He makes you smile constantly just looking at his goofy face. Dodger is fostered with another 1 year old male Lab and they love to play with each other constantly!
Dodger is also fostered with kitties. He's pretty curious about them and wants to play but we don't think he would hurt them.
Dodger came to use from a high kill Los Angeles County shelter. Because he is a large black dog and is a male, he had little chance of being adopted. Black dogs fade into the kennel at shelters and often people just walk by and don't notice them. They just don't get seen or adopted as often as others.
When we saw Dodger we fell in love instantly. He was so happy to see us and couldn't wait to go for a walk.
Dodger is very good with other dogs and loves all people. He's a bit of a leash puller but easily controlled with a pinch collar. He will do best in a home where he will get lots of trips to dog park, or with another friendly playful canine companion. He loves having friends! He's a young Lab so he needs his good hour of exercise each day.
Dodger sleeps in his crate and likes it in there which is always nice. He's housebroken and wants to please. He does tend to try to jump up on you which is not good because Dodger is a big boy. But he is learning not to do that. His new owners will want to continue to work on this.
Dodger is good with kids, but too much for little toddlers. Children over 6 will be fine.
If you are looking for a happy, goofy, WONDERFUL purebred Labrador, Dodger is the one. This boy is just the best. Great temperament, loves dogs, loves people and thinks life is the best thing in the world. If you like the park, beach trips, hiking and just doing fun things with your dog, Dodger would be perfect.
Dodger is a healthy boy who is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Star 2 adopted!
Meet Star 2, an adorable purebred black female Labrador puppy of approximately 7 months. Star is a darling little 45 lb girl who will grow to be about 55 lbs at full size, so she is a petite sweetheart.
Star is a young girl and still has a few puppy traits including getting into trouble at times! But she is easily redirected to a nylabone or other toy when told. She is a bouncing happy girl who absolutely loves other dogs and loves to play.
Star is not a super high energy girl and is calm for a puppy, but calm puppies are still energetic! So lots of dog park time and exercise for this girl is a must. She will do great at dog park where she will play and love being with the other dogs and this is also great for her continued puppy socialization.
Star knows sit and is learning her other commands. She wants to please and is food motivated so she will be very easy to train. Her new owners will want to do a puppy obedience class with Star unless they know how to train dogs themselves. Puppy classes are always fun and great for the youngsters and their owners.
Star likes her crate and will sleep inside with the door open. She loves her foster Labby sister and they get along beautifully.
Star has a little anxiety when separated from her person which we are working on. But because she is so young, we prefer to place her in a home where someone is home much of the time or with a work at home person or someone that can take a dog to work.
She will do best in a home with another friendly canine companion and definitely where her new owners will give her the exercise, patience, and fun time puppies deserve.
This little girl is about as sweet as they get. She loves everyone and all dogs. We do not know how she will do with cats so we prefer not to place her with the unless the person is absolutely willing to train her to "leave it" with kitties if she goes after them.
Star will do fine with children as she is not particularly mouthy or jumpy. She is a little too wiggly for toddlers perhaps but children over age 5 should be just fine so long as mom and dad have the time needed for this baby as well.
We would like to find a home for Star where her new owners will not leave her alone for long hours and where they will continue to work with as a puppy growing into a fine canine citizen.
Star is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Apollo, a stunningly gorgeous purebred black male 2 year old Labrador Retriever. This shiny, amazing example of a beautiful Labrador is also a wonderfully tempered boy with a deep desire to please and a true love of all people and dogs.
Apollo is a very happy, very playful young Lab. He is a medium energy Lab who is a young boy so he needs plenty of daily exercise. He will do great at dogpark with other dogs and would love trips to dog beach.
Apollo is getting better on the leash. He tends to pull and is strong so he does very well on a pinch collar and will need continued work to be perfect on leash.
Apollo likes to retrieve the tennis ball and he is fostered with another 1 year old male Lab and both of them take turns going after the ball and playing with each other.
Apollo came to us with his littermate sister Athena from a very high kill Los Angeles County shelter where he was in danger of euthanasia.
Black dogs - even gorgeous purebred black Labbies - have a very hard time being adopted in shelters. It's a real shame, especially when you consider that there is simply NOTHING as beautiful as a purebred shiny black Labrador with perfect burnt sugar eyes and a nice wide broad head!
When we met Apollo in the shelter we knew immediately he was coming home with us. His beauty, conformation, and temperament are exactly what we look for in our dogs.
Although Apollo is a great dog and has all the best qualities of a Lab, he is young and large so will need a home ready to work on a bit of training and provide a lot of exercise. Because he is so good with other dogs, exercise will be easy since he can do lots of things in myriad places.
Apollo settles beautifully in the house and is a good boy in his crate during the night. His new family may or may not desire to continue with use of a crate. He will do fine without one.
This healthy happy boy is just looking for his new best forever friend. He will do best with another friendly canine companion but will also do fine as your one and only.
We do not know how Apollo will do with cats so we will not be placing him with them.
Apollo is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Indigo, a stunning purebred blue Weimaraner male of 6 years. Indigo gets his name from his deep solid blue coat which is truly amazing. This gorgeous big boy is about 90 lbs and is not only extremely beautiful to look at, he is the sweetest Weim you will ever meet.
Indigo has amazing temperament. He is a social and easy going dog who loves all people and all other dogs. He gets along beautifully with every dog he meets and loves to go up to people to say hello. He constantly smiles and loves to be pet and part of what is going on.
These photos were taken at a local dog park where Indigo goes with his foster mom. You can see how he fits right in with all the other dogs and enjoys their company. Indigo has many new friends and the other dogs really like him. He is very popular. He isn't particularly playful, but loves to great, hang out with, follow and just be with other dogs with his little short Weim tail wiggling.
Indigo is a very mellow easy going boy. He is definitely not a high energy dog but does love his walks and trips to dog park to visit.
Indigo is very good on the leash when walked with a pinch collar. With out the pinch collar, he does tend to pull a bit. He enjoys greeting other dogs he meets while on leash and is a perfect gentleman. It is a pleasure to walk Indigo.
Indigo is a mellow, low key boy who settles beautifully in the house. He likes to be with his person like all Weimeraners do and is content to lay by your feet while you work or watch TV. He is not needy at all and is just very well adjusted.
Indigo came to us from a super high kill Los Angeles County shelter where he was in danger.It's hard to imagine his owners were not looking for him in the shelters. You would think someone would come for such a wonderful dog. Then again, we have seen many, many wonderful beautiful purebred dogs who no one comes for and who end up in danger of losing their lives.
When we first saw Indigo, we immediately were struck by his beauty - that gorgeous deep blue coat was hard to miss. Once we spent time with him, we knew he would be coming home with us.
After a vet visit, ear cleaning, bath, and flea control, Indigo headed to his foster home where he is fostered with several other dogs. He immediately blended right in, made friends, and made himself at home.
Indigo likes his crate and goes right in. He sleeps through the night without a peep. He is non destructive in the house and car and is housebroken. He also enjoys car rides, but is still getting used to being in the car alone. He barks when you leave him in the car, but now that he realized someone comes back, he is barking much less and we feel in the next day or so, that will also be completely resolved.
Indigo showed way too much curiosity toward the cats at the vet office so we will not be placing him with kitties.
He's a big boy so probably too large for kids under 5, but will be gentle with children and do fine with kids who are gentle and respectful of dogs.
Indigo is a healthy dog who is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. His teeth have some tarter so he will need a good dental cleaning in the future.
Shadow 2 adopted!
Shadow 2 is a purebred AKC registered 10 month old Labrador puppy male. He is a gorgeous black boy of about 80 lbs. and has lovely temperament besides being so beautiful.
This sweetie came to us when his owners came into some hard times and were unable to take care of their dogs. They had owned Shadow and his brother Brownie (adopted) since they were 8 weeks old and the dogs were raised with their toddlers.
Although Shadow loves kids he is too mouthy and wiggly to be with toddlers. Older children over age 6 would be just fine.
Shadow is an active playful puppy who LOVES to play with other dogs. He will absolutely do best with another friendly sweet canine companion who also likes to play with other dogs.
Shadow is a great dog park candidate because of his friendly, submissive, and playful nature.
Shadow will do best in a home where he will get a nice obedience class, continued puppy training, and lots of good daily exercise. He is a fun guy and still a puppy, but he is already 80 lbs. so continued training will keep this boy a good dog with nice canine skills. He is already doing soooo well and learning all his commands! he tries really hard and wants nothing more than to please his foster mom.
Shadow loves everyone. If you even look at him his tail starts thumping and you can hear it and watch him smile at you.
He also has a lovely independence about him so he will have no separation anxiety and can go outside the doggie door on his own and not worry while alone outside.
He LOVES the doggie door and likes to go in and out a lot exploring the yard and then coming back in to be with his foster family. He would love a home with a nice yard, another dog, and lots and lots of exercise and fun activities like dog beach and dog park. Because he is sooo amazing with other dogs, he can go anywhere with his family.
This is a very beautiful and exceptionally tempered Labrador. he is a PRIZE. We would like only the best home for him - a home that is committed to a large puppy, giving him the training, attention, and exercise he needs. In return you will have an absolute show stopper dog. He is stunning.
Shadow is healthy, up to date on vaccines and neutered.
Meet Athena, a stunningly gorgeous greek goddess! She is a black female lab of approximately 2 1/2 years old. She is about 80 pounds and has the looks of a beautiful purebred Lab. Athena is an English bred lab, with a blocky head and shorter stature and the most beautiful shiny black coat!
Athena was found as a stray and came to us from a local shelter. She must have been pretty well taken care of, as she is very good looking, pretty social with other dogs, and an overall happy lab. She has not had any accidents in the house so far, so we believe she is housebroken.
She is currently being fostered with another female lab of 6 1/2 years old. The two get along great. Athena has also met many other dogs on our walks around the neighborhood, both large & small and she has done beautifully with all of them. She loves her trips to the dog park where she meets and greets lots of other dogs and gets to play fetch to her heart's content.
Athena has not been tested with kitties. So, we will not look to place her in any family with cats.
Athena has taken to a few stuffed, squeaky dog toys in her foster home & although she likes to play with them, she tires of them quickly, so the squeaking will not annoy you all day long. She is not destructive and doesn't appear to be a chewer at all. She is a quiet lab - haven't heard her bark or whine at all. She settles well in the house, whether laying on the floor next to the bed, or in her crate - she is content with either.
Athena is a cuddly and wiggly lab - if you sit on the floor, she will quickly wiggle her way onto your lap! If she doesn't get your attention, she will paw at you to ensure you love her and cuddle her. Because of her wiggly, bouncy nature, she would be best placed with kids 8 and older. Overall she has a medium energy level - like most younger labs, she does require daily exercise of about an hour - walking, playing fetch, or perhaps even jogging are great for her.
Athena seems to have little experience on a leash - so we are working on her leash training. She does pull and sometimes she can't decided which direction is best, right, left, front, back - they are all so exciting to her! Walking her on a pinch collar works best and she is learning to heel and walk the pace of her person on the end of the leash. She is learning quickly, but will need reinforcement of this in her new home.
She got a bath in her foster home last night, so she is now so soft and clean! She was bathed in the bath tub and did great - once in the tub, she stood very calmly and even sat down while being lathered up! She likes to follow you everywhere in the house. She is crate trained, and when left at home in the crate, she settles well and goes right to sleep. She has been left for short periods in the house free and has been great so far No barking, whining or any destructive behavior - just waiting by the door for you when you return. She rides well in the car - jumps right in excitedly and patiently enjoys the ride - although she does seem to have an affinity for the front passenger seat :)
Athena is spayed, has a microchip and is up to date on her shots.
Hayley is a darling female purebred Weimaraner of about 1 year. She is a sweet girl who is only 55 lbs so she is petite. Hayley is a beautiful girl with a natural tail that has not been docked.
Hayley is the sweetest girl ever. She absolutely LOVES to snuggle with people. She's a big snuggler and really wants to be with you.
When you look at Hayley you can see and hear her natural tail thumping. It's darling because she is so happy to see you and say hello.
Hayley came to us from a high kill shelter that wanted to euthanize her as they thought she was "weird". Sigh. Well it ends up Hayley is perfect and was very afraid and alone in the shelter. Some shelters look for any excuse to kill a dog and make room. When we met Hayley at the shelter it took all of 2 seconds to see how wonderful she is and that she was coming home with us.
Hayley is just the best dog. She is perfect with all other dogs of all personalities. She is a very submissive girl who gets along with everyone.
Hayley is also gentle and lovely with kitties. She is fostered with several cats and couldn't be better with them. So she is a great choice for a family who needs a cat friendly pup.
Hayley is a wonderful girl in the house. She is not destructive and settles beautifully. She is a real lady and loves to be part of the family hanging out where they are. She loves her people.
Hayley is not being crated. She is housebroken and sleeps on her doggie bed next to her foster moms bed through the night without a peep.
Hayley will do fine with gentle children. And will do best in a home where she will get a lot of attention and not be left alone for super long hours every day without another doggie companion.
She is also a great dog to take to work because she is quiet, low key, trained, and calm.
Hayley is great in the car too. Rides beautifully.
Hayley is a healthy girl who is spayed, up to date on her shots and microchipped.
Meet Zeus The King of Cuddle, a gorgeous 3 year old pure bred AKC registered black lab male of 100 perfect pounds.
Zeus is coming to rescue after a family's change of circumstances, which is all too common these days. There have been many interested private parties but because Zeus is so loved, his family wants the the safety of rescue, so he's coming with us!
Originally from Hawaii, Zeus used to take unleashed on hikes and had no issues with other people or dogs. He loves swimming and used to go to the beach all the time in Hawaii. His owners would throw the ball in the water and he would swim for it.
Last year Zeus did suffer an injury while playing fetch. He twisted his leg when turning and tore his ACL. His loving owners took him to their vet and paid $5000 for the surgery to repair his ACL. Since his surgery, Zeus has made a full recovery. Follow up x-rays show proper alignment. Without a scar you'd never know of this injury.
Zeus currently lives with three kids, ranging in ages from 7 to 14, and loves them. He gets very excited when the kids come home. The kids lay on him, use him as a pillow, and lay next to him, play with him, etc. He is very good with them and loves them! He is also very good with obedience commands. He knows sit, lay down, no, wait, etc... However, he does need to brush up on his leash walking manners, so we recommend using a pinch collar or getting a trainer to help him remember how to walk nicely on leash.
Socialized at an early age, Zeus is able to the dog park and have doggy play dates. Going to the dog park without incident is no problem for Zeus as he is over the top excited for the ball. So much so that they only play fetch outside because Zeus will bring you a ball and stare at you because he wants to play! He LOVES to play fetch. When other dogs annoy him, Zeus turns the other paw, ignores them and walks away.
When Zeus was evaluated, he met 3 other males. He was great with them. If a dog is doing something he doesn't like, he will correct them. This is not aggression, rather it is a way that dogs set limits with each other and is a very reasonable thing. The boys all played and had a good time.
Zeus is completely house trained and will let you know when he needs to go out to potty. He is also crate trained, although, there have been times when he's been left out of the crate and it's been fine. Although, as with any new dog, we recommend that you take the time to see how your new dog is adapting before going from a crate to no crate.
He has been a strictly indoor only dog and only wants to be outside if you're with him. He is not a dog that wants to be left outside alone. If he sees that you are inside and he is left outside, he becomes distressed. So no leaving this boy alone outside.
Zeus is an incredibly sweet, affectionate and lovable boy who has been a beloved family member since he was a puppy. He loves for his ears to be rubbed, belly rubs, and is just a lover for any kind of attention. An all around good boy.
We prefer not to place Zeus with kitties as he was not raised with them; when he has been exposed to them he tends to chase them so no kitties for Zeus. Also, because of his size, we prefer to place Zeus with children that are over 8 years of age.
Zeus is neutered, chipped and up to date on shots.
Onyx is a
gorgeous English or Bench Bred purebred male black Labrador. He is 2
years old and has a glossy black coat and a blocky stunning head.
is a very sweet boy who was a breeder stud and came to us after some
family issues forced the family to relinquish their dogs. Just looking at this boy in his photos you can see that he is stunning to behold with outstanding conformation. Just a beautiful example of a well bred Labrador.
great temperament. He is learning to walk nicely on the leash and
that will need a bit of work. He sometimes is reactive and excited when
he sees other dogs but as soon as he meets them he wags his tail and is
friendly. This is less and less each day as Onyx loves all other dogs
and gets along great with them but because he was a breeder stud he
never was out on leash that much so is getting used to being on a leash
when he meets other dogs.
is a very good boy in the house and is well behaved. he loves all
people and loves to be by your side. He really wants to please his
is fostered with another male Lab and a small terrier
mix. He loves the dogs and they all get along great. He is gentle with
the little dog too and he is wonderful about sharing his toys with the
other dogs. This boy is really about as sweet as they get and he is
drop dead gorgeous as you can clearly see!
Onyx sleeps peacefully through the night in
his crate and is housebroken. He is non-destructive in the house and a
very good boy in the car.
Onyx will do best in a home where he
will get his daily exercise and ball tossing. He will do great with
another friendly canine companion and will do fine with children over
age 6 as he is a wiggly happy Lab that could knock toddlers over.
We don't know how Onyx will do with kitties so we will not place him with them.
you are looking for a gorgeous purebred boy who is the most loving dog, please complete an
application to adopt and follow up with an e-mail to RPVmom@aol.com
Marcus is a handsome and lively 2 year old yellow Labrador male. This beautiful boy has spent quite a bit of time in an all breed rescue and now we are hoping to find him a great home.
Marcus weighs about 65 lbs. so he is a perfect size - not too big and not a little guy either. Just right! He loves to go for car rides, waits patiently while you do your errands, and he also loves walks/runs on leash. He's a true best friend and loves to spend time with his person doing whatever it is you like to do.
He is a good boy at the dog park and has many friends. He does best with dogs who are nice and friendly.
Like any happy, young Labrador, Marcus also loves to swim and play in the water. He also loves chase tennis balls and retrieve them. He always brings them back for more.
Marcus is still a young boy. He needs further obedience training, but knows sit and down, and he returns when you call him by name. He would love an owner who will continue to work with him and help him become the perfect dog he is so close to being! He wants to please and loves to learn.
Marcus is much too lively for young children. If he is very playful he could knock a toddler over without meaning to, so we are looking for a home where he will be lovingly cared for and trained by a person or couple without small kids. We especially want him to find owners who can devote a good amount of time enjoying this dog and bringing out all of his great qualities. Older children should be fine. Marcus loves all people! We just want to be sure his new owners have lots of time for him!
Marcus will do best in a home where he will get lots of fun exercise, continue dog park and making friends, and continue his leash and obedience training which he is really enjoying.
Marcus will do fine with another friendly canine companion - especially if you are going during the day. Or he will do great as your one and only love.
We do not know how Marcus would do with kitties so we prefer not to place him with them.
Marcus is a healthy, happy, wiggly lab looking for a loving forever home. He is neutered and up to date on vaccines.
Thunder is a stunning purebred male Labrador. He is a glossy black healthy boy of 4 years with a gorgeous blocky head. Thunder is 80 lbs and is one of the best looking boys we've seen.
Thunder came to us from a backyard breeding situation where he was used as a stud dog. He is an AKC registered Lab although we will not be permitted to provide his AKC papers to his new adopter.
Thunder was used to make puppies to make money and otherwise ignored and left outside. He was never inside a house before and got virtually no attention. Thunder was bred with our other Lab Tulley who had her first litter before she was even a year old. The family planned to breed Thunder and Tulley yet again when unfortunate circumstances forced them to look for other homes for their clearly unloved dogs. That's where we came in.
When we first met Thunder and Tulley we were horrified at their situation. We immediately took them in to get them out of where they were. Their owners were ready to give them to whoever showed up without a care about where they went. Luckily for these dogs they came to safety with us.
Thunder has been neutered and is doing great. He seems to really like other dogs and has a passing interest in cats. So we prefer to place him without kitties.
Thunder pulls hard on the leash and he is strong. He is best walked with a pinch collar at this stage and we are working with him to learn to walk more nicely on leash. Clearly his owners never took him for a walk.
Luckily they did keep Thunder in good health, we assume so he could be good breeding stock.
Thunder is not a hyper dog. He's a relatively calm boy but he is big and strong. He will do best in a home where he will get good daily exercise.
He is wonderful with children but due to his size, we prefer to only place him with children over age 6.
Thunder is used to being with other dogs so we really don't know how he would do as an only dog left alone during long workdays. Because he is used to being an outside dog, he will likely do great left in the yard in the beginning while you are at work until he can be fully trusted to come in and out of the house.
Beautiful Banyon adopted!
This is Banyon, a stunningly gorgeous purebred chocolate female lab of approximately 5 years old. She is on the larger side for a female and is 85-90 pounds of pure sweetness and sugar. Her pictures do not do her justice - in person she is stunning. Banyon is more of an English or Bench Bred Lab.
Banyon is coming to rescue under very sad circumstances. She has been a beloved pet her entire life until her owner found herself in a new relationship where her partner was physically and emotionally abusive to Banyon. This has been recent, within the last few months, and her loving owner, concerned for her beloved girl, knew that she had to turn her to rescue to keep her safe.
Banyon is currently being fostered with twin toddlers that are almost 3 years old and three male labs. Two of the labs are 6 1/2 years old, the third lab is an Indi hospice dog Tar, a 12 1/2 year old foster. Tar is in love with her and has taken to her instantly. He has been taking care of Banyon, licking her face and her ears. Banyon was also introduced to many dogs before coming to her foster home; when she met her two younger foster brothers, who came out like gangbusters, Banyon didn't blink an eye or become bothered at all.
Banyon is also good with kitties. However, as with any lab, it is always important to remember that any new dog coming into the home should be introduced to the kitty carefully.
This beautiful girl also loves her walks and loves to play with her toys.
The majority of Banyon's life has been filled with love and kindness. Being placed in a loving and stable home will make it so that this sad time period of her life won't be even a distant memory. There are those that feel that dogs that have abused can be unstable; this is not the case with Banyon. Banyon, when she first met the twin toddlers, immediately went up to them and kissed them. With the dogs that she has met, she has introduced and interacted in a very balanced way. In her previous home there was a very alpha female, so if there is a furry sibling in the house, it is important that they are balanced and not alpha. No more stress for this girl.
Banyon is an extremely gentle and sweet soul who would like nothing more than to have a loving home where she will be cherished as the incredibly loving and wonderful girl that she is. She is an extremely affectionate girl and would love nothing more than to be hugged and cuddled and loved.
This beautiful girl has just entered rescue and we are still learning more about her. She is spayed, has a microchip and is up to date on her shots. There will be special consideration given to Banyon given that she really needs to be placed with a family that will be gentle with her but that will also relate to her in the present so she knows that everything is okay and being happy is exactly as she should be.
Meet Annie, a gorgeous purebred pale yellow female Labrador of barley, IF, one year. This beauty is so sweet and darling and just a pleasure to be with.
Annie came to us from yet another super high kill shelter. Hard to believe to look at her, but it's true. Dogs like Annie are killed in our shelters every single day yet people continue to breed tons and tons of back yard bred Labradors and people continue to buy them. Well, Annie is one of those dogs.
Annie is about 60-65 lbs. She's a tad on the thin side and should be more like 65-70 lbs when she fills out a bit.
Annie loves everyone and love to be right by your side. She is a true cuddle bug. She is a very good girl in the house - no destructive and housebroken - and she loves to go for car rides and do errands. She is a very, very good girl in the car!
Annie is a young girl - still a puppy and has a lot of energy. she is nuts for the ball and loves to retrieve. She requires lots of exercise and retrieving time and plenty of supervision in the house even though she is a very good girl.
Annie is excellent with kitties. She mostly ignores them. If she is particularly playful she may chase a cat like all dogs will, but overall she is a good candidate for families with kitties. Of course with any new dog there is always a transition period of getting them and kitty to meet, make friends and work things out so any cat owning family must be willing to make that commitment.
Annie loves other dogs, however she is a little alpha. Not super alpha, but just a tad. She does great once she meets a dog properly and makes nice friends but we prefer not to place her with another alpha dog. She will do perfectly with a friendly semi submissive male or female. she has been with several of our foster dogs and has done beautifully with them. she loves the male she is fostered with and made fast friends with another of our female labs Dixie as well as another male named Bruiser and a female named Pan.
Annie tends to pull on the leash. She does best with a pinch collar or gentle leader and her new owners will want to continue to work with her. When you walk her by stores she wants to go in to say hi. She's a very social happy girl who wants to great everyone she sees.
Annie is not a barker, but will bark if left outside in the yard when she KNOWS you are sitting inside without her. Like most Labs, she wants to be with her people and not locked outside. She does great outside when you are not home.
Annie is an energetic dog. She will need her daily exercise plus lots of ball throwing. She can settle down like a soft blanket next to you when you want her too but not if she hasn't had her exercise!
Annie is great with children. Loves kids. But she is also pretty playful. We prefer to place her with children older than 6 as she may knock toddlers over.
Annie is a wonderful girl and deserves the best home ever. She is spayed and up to date on vaccines.
Saffy is a pretty purebred yellow female Labrador of about 4 years. This lovely girl is a sweet Lab with lots of spunk. Saffy is about 65-70 lbs and is at perfect weight.
Saffy loves other dogs and is doing great with the other 2 Labs she is fostered with. She loves going to dog park and playing and making friends. She is not good with cats so we will not place her with them. But other dogs are wonderful for this playful sweet girl!
Saffy is a medium energy girl and will do best in a home where she will get her daily exercise and ball throwing - but also where she will get cuddle time and time to just lay by your feet and hang out with you. She loves people and loves to be by her person.
She tends to pull on the leash so we are working to correct that. She will do best with a gentle leader or pinch collar when walked. And she will get better and better the more she is walked. She is already much better in her foster home and is pulling less and less every day!
Saffy rides nicely in the car and enjoys a ride. She loves to look out the window while you drive. She also settles beautifully in the house when you are home. She doesn't do well left alone without another dog for super long hours every day.
Saffy will do great with older children over age 6. This is because when she gets super affectionate she tend to jump up. It's an easy fix to work on with her, but toddlers may get knocked over so no tiny tots for this girl.
This is just a very, very sweet loving purebred Lab who loves all people and other dogs. She will be a great family dog and anyone that meets her falls in total love.
Saffy is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Dixie, a gorgeous purebred chocolate Labrador female who is the sweetest most lovely girl. This labby is a total lover and is a good girl in the house with her playful yet calm personality and cuddly loving way. She is a good choice for families wanting a friendly and playful yet calm Lab who is also good with cats.
She is a chocolate Lab leaning toward a variation of silver. Silver Labs are actually chocolate Labs just like white Labs are actually Yellow Labs. Labs come in 3 colors: Black, Yellow, and Chocolate. Silver is a variation of chocolate. Dixie is sort of in between and really, really beautiful.
Silver Labs are very rare. In recent years certain breeders have tried to breed for the silver color as it is highly desirable among certain people. Dixie's coat is a chocolaty-silver and is really unique and beautiful. To learn more about silver Labs check out this link:
You may have noticed Dixie on our home page where we made an appeal to help with her medical costs. When we pulled Dixie from a very high-kill shelter she was already so sick with pneumonia that she would most certainly have died had we not rushed her to the hospital that instant.
Dixie is now over her pneumonia and doing wonderfully in her foster home where she has made happy friends with the other dogs there.
Because Dixie is slightly underweight at 50 lbs and we did not spay her yet. Dixie will go to her new family intact and can be spayed in the next month at one of our vets where we will cover the cost. We just want her to put on a few more pound before undergoing surgery. She is not a big Labrador but she should be closer to 60 lbs at ideal weight.
Dixie is a prize. Not only is she drop dead gorgeous - the kind of beauty that makes everyone who sees her comment - but she is submissive, gentle, loving, and just wonderful with all other dogs.
Dixie is a happy wiggly girl of medium energy. She loves the tennis ball and loves to retrieve. She also loves to play with other dogs and make friends. And she is also very mellow in the house where she loves to just hang out quiety.
Dixie is good with dogs and even kitties!
Dixie is a young girl at just one year. She is a darling sweetheart and is very calm in the house.
Dixie will do great in a home with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only. But because she is so young, she will do best with another dog if her owners work during the day and she is left alone. Dixie does best with dogs who are friendly and non nutty hyper. Hyper puppies get on her nerves.
Dixie is pretty good on leash though she does tend to pull just a pit. She will continue to get better as she goes for more walks. She is learning and doing beautifully every day getting better and better!
Dixie is foster with kids and loves them. She will be too much for tiny toddlers as she is playful but she will do beautifully with children over the age of 5.
Dixie will be spayed and is up to date on her vaccines and has a microchip.
If you feel Dixie is the one for you, please complete an application to adopt and follow up with an e-mail to email@example.com
Brownie 2 adopted!
Awe look at this baby!!! This is Brownie 2, the cutest purebred Labrador Retriever pup every. Brownie is a chocolate purebred AKC registered Labrador male of just 10 months. He is the sweetest most loving pup around and is everything we all look for when choosing a Lab: temperament, temperament, temperament!
Brownie is a beautiful male puppy. He is a happy, gentle, sweet wiggler who wants to please and just loves everyone and everything in the world. He is curious, intelligent, and responsive and just a really good boy.
Brownie came to us from a family that loved him very much but due to circumstances beyond their control, they were forced to give Brownie up. They were caring enough of him to be sure he went to rescue so that he would have the very best chance at only the best home with a truly loving and responsible family.
Brownie is a good boy who has been with other dogs and toddlers since he was 8 weeks old. Therefore he is very good with children and very well socialized. Even though Brownie is good with toddlers, he is a puppy so we prefer to place him with children over the age of 6.
Brownie is already 70 lbs. at 10 months. He will likely grow to be 85 lbs at full adult size so training is important. Brownie knows sit and is learning all his other commands well. His new family will want to be sure to take him to a puppy obedience class so he will have the very best start at becoming a solid canine citizen.
Brownie is a pretty calm guy for a pup but he does love to play. His new home will want to take him to dogpark to fulfill that play need and to continue with his solid canine socialization skills.
Brownie will do best in a home that is ready and committed to adopting a young active Labrador. He will be great fun for his new family, but he will do his best in a puppy proofed home with things like remotes, cell phones, and the like put away.
Brownie will need plenty of daily exercise and will do best in a home where someone is home much of the time in the next 2 months since he is only 10 months old. We also think he'll do great in a home with other dogs or at least one other friendly canine companion for company.
This yummy cub is just the most darling chocolate boy. He is a healthy happy boy who we have just neutered. He is also up to date on his vaccines and microchipped.
If you feel your family can give Brownie the very best home, be sure to complete an application to adopt and follow up with an e-mail to Brownie's foster mom Darra at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is Radar, a beautiful purebred 1 year old male Weimaraner of only about 60 lbs. This gorgeous and beautiful dog is about the sweetest boy you will ever meet. He loves to cuddle and be by your side and he is a calm lovely boy.
Radar came to us from a high kill shelter where he was in immediate danger of losing his life. Luckily one of our volunteers was able to get to him in time and bring him safely to a loving foster home.
Radar appears to have had some obedience training and responds to basic commands beautifully. He'll need a little reinforcement and continued work to reach perfection but he loves to please! He loves human attention more than anything. He's not a big dog and loves to try to cuddle in your lap if you will let him. Radar is crate trained and loves his crate. He will go in all on his own just to hang out and sleeps quiety through the night like a good boy.
Radar is calm and quiet. He's not a barker and is an easy going mellow boy in the house. He is not destructive and is also a very good boy on car rides! Radar walks nicely on the leash. He likes to meet other dogs and is a very good boy saying hello to all the other dogs he meets. Radar loves other dogs and like to play with them as well. He also seems to be fine with cats which is always nice.
Radar will do best in a home that will give him the exercise and attention a young dog needs. He would love his daily walks and occasional trips to dog park or dog beach or even a hike or two. He will do fine with another friendly canine companion and also with children.
Radar is up to date on vaccines, microchipped and neutered.
Buddy 3 adopted!
Buddy is a 5 year old yellow purebred Labrador. This doll baby is wonderful with children, dogs, and even kitties.
Buddy is a chunky boy who needs to shed a few pounds. (don't we all?) He is about 90 lbs and should be more like 75-80 lbs at his ideal weight. He loves to go for walks so shedding his love handles will be easy so long as his new owners exercise him moderately each day and feed him the appropriate amount of food. Until then, there is more yummy Buddy to love and squeeze.
Buddy came to us because his owners "didn't want a dog anymore.". Nice. Even though Buddy is amazing, well behaved indoors, gentle, sweet, non destructive, trained, and just all around pretty perfect. He just wasn't good enough for his owners to want him anymore. Well, we wanted him!!!! And we cannot imagine who wouldn't want a purebred perfect boy like this!
Buddy is an easygoing sweetheart. Loves people and children, loves attention, and is extremely affectionate.
This mellow wiggler is doing wonderfully in his foster home. He likes his foster Labby brother too, although he really does prefer all the attention to himself so we know he would do beautifully as an only dog if you do not have another dog to keep him company.
Buddy was raised with little children so we know he will do well with them based on his history. He's gentle too and probably will not knock toddlers down like many Labs, though he is a big boy.
Buddy will do well in most homes, but will do especially well in a home where he is the center of attention and has people to fawn over him with love, kisses and hugs and is a great choice for families with kitties!
He loves to go for car rides and run errands and is a good boy in the car. He is perfect in the house and is completely housebroken and non-destructive.
Buddy is neutered and up to date on vaccines. He's a healthy boy just waiting for the right family to take him home!
Meet Teagan! The cutest sweetest happiest Labrador puppy around! Teagan is a 6 month old purebred Labrador male who is do darling and sweet and so submissive he will steal your heart so fast you won't know what hit you! This little guy is all of about 45 lbs and will grow to be about 65 lbs at full size.
These photos do not do Teagan justice so we will be taking new photos soon. This boy is to die for cute!
Teagan has had his dew claws removed which tells us he was breeder bred. He does have a small white diamond on his chest which is permissible in the AKC Labrador breed standard.
Teagan came to us from one of the highest kill shelters around. He was sick with kennel cough and was in danger for his life when we got him out. To see him now you would never know that. He has not a care in the world except to wag his tail and smile at everyone.
Tea is a very typical Lab puppy. A complete lover, bouncy, hilarious. He makes you laugh just by looking at him. He will be playing and wiggling one second and fast asleep 2 seconds later! He actually falls asleep while he is playing! He loves to kiss everyone and everything and loves the other dogs he is with.
Tea loves the dog park and things he is the dog park host, welcoming every dog who comes in. He is totally submissive, never growls or barks and goes right on his back for other dogs. He loves his doggie pack of several dogs he's fostered with, but is still learning doggie manners and can be a knucklehead doing silly things for which the other dogs correct him and thus teach him the right way to be a dog.
When people correct Tea he things that means he's supposed to kiss them instead of behave, but he's a baby and he is still learning. He is a very good boy with a huge Labby heart just like we love.
He loves to sneak under the dining room table with items he loves to steal. But he give them up easily in exchange for his toys and he is learning beautifully what items are his and which are not. He loves all toys and especially stuffed animals! He also like paper and the occasional shoe as those seem to get him more attention! But he is learning those are not his toys!
e is not averse to a little counter surfing if he thinks no dogs are watching him so no food left on counters when this boy is around and he is learning he may not look up there. He loves to sleep in the bed and will drape himself over you like a giant, warm soft noodle.
He still jumps up so no small toddlers. It's not that he's not nice to kids, he adores them, it's just that he knocks them down on purpose in order to have more surface to kiss. Also, he thinks if they're on the floor they're playing a game that requires him to tackle them and kiss their faces until they can't breathe. How fun! He loves the little children he is fostered with but little toddlers would be just too much fun for Tea.
Tea has learned to sit on command! He is learning all his good stuff. He is not at all mouthy which is huge for a puppy so that is wonderful. He's a very good boy in the car and is completely housetrained now!
Tea will do great in a home that will continue puppy training and where there is plenty of time to give this little guy. He would love another playful friendly canine companion and will do best in a home where at least one person is home a lot of the time for the next month or so.
Tea is neutered, up to date on shots, and ready for love.
If you feel Tea is right for your family, please complete an application to adopt and follow up with an e-mail to Darra at email@example.com
Tulley is a beautiful AKC registered purebred black female Labrador of 1 year. This young Labrador who is still just a baby has already been used to breed a litter of puppies and her owners were prepared to mate her again just recently to sell her puppies for money.
Luckily the family came into hardship forcing them to relinquish Tulley to our rescue so we were able to save her from being bred back to back to make puppies for sale.
Tulley is an incredibly beautiful Lab. She has a gorgeous glossy velvet black coat and a sweet Labby expression. She is about 68 lbs and is a medium sized beauty queen.
Tulley is a lovely girl who adores all people. She is good with other dogs and does very well with cats. We think she will do fine in a home with cats, though any cat-friendly Lab may still give chase to a moving kitty until they get to know them and they become less interesting. So her new owners will need to commit to the time it takes for Tulley and their kitty to make friends if she is adopted to a cat home.
Tulley basically lived as a back yard dog and was never taken for walks. So she does pull on the leash and does best with a pinch collar or gentle leader. Her new owners will want to work with her more on her leash skills.
Tulley is not a hyper dog but she is young and has good energy. She will need her daily exercise and lots of ball tossing to keep her energy at bay.
Tulley isn't much of a jumper and isn't particularly mouthy so she will do fine with children. But since she is so young, we prefer not to place her with toddlers.
Tulley will need her new home to help socialize her with other dogs just a bit more as she hasn't met that many other dogs. But she has done very well with all the dogs she has met. As she meets more dogs she will go great at dog park.
Tulley is housebroken and isn't destructive in the house. She is a very good girl in the car and rides nicely with the other dogs.
Tulley will do best in a home where her owners are ready for a young Labrador and can give daily exercise. Her new home will need to work on her leash and socialization skills which are going so well. Children over 6 are fine and kitties too. She will do great with another friendly canine companion to keep company with or as your one and only true love.
Tulley is spayed, healthy, up to date on vaccines.
This is Easy! Easy got his name because he IS - Easy that is! This mellow calm boy is a handsome chocolate Labrador Mix who is so loving, so lovely to be around, and just a really good, good boy.
Easy is a 4 year old Lab mix with beautiful soulful eyes and an absolutely lovely temperament. He loves to be with his person and loves laying by your feet while you are working.
Easy came to us from a high kill shelter where he was in immediate danger. Easy had a small skin growth on his abdomen and anything out of the ordinary in the shelter can be a death sentence. As soon as we met Easy we knew he would come home with us and after a thorough vet check to confirm his good health, Easy enjoyed the car ride to his new foster home.
The growth on Easy's abdomen is a small skin tag which is scheduled to be removed. It's no big deal and Easy can be made available for adoption!
Easy is wonderful with kitties and all dogs. He is fostered with 2 male Labradors and 2 kitties and he has made friends with everyone.
Easy is a gentle dog who is very low key. He has absolutely no aggression whatsoever. You can take anything from his mouth and he eats his food nicely next to the other dogs. He lays on his bed next to the other dogs and shares his space like a gentleman.
Easy likes his daily trips to the dog park but he doesn't like to stay too, too long. 1/2 hour and Easy is ready to go. He loves his walks and is a good boy on the leash, meeting other dogs nicely and greeting everyone with an "Easy" smile.
Easy sleeps in his crate at night sometimes. Other times he sleeps in his dog bed depending on what he's in the mood for. He's a good boy in the car and likes running errands with his foster mom. He waits in the car like a good boy and is happy to see where they are going next.
Easy takes treats very gently and is not nuts for food. He likes to hang out with his foster mom doing whatever.
Easy is a healthy boy who is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Rufus! Rufus is a gorgeous, STUNNING, purebred male Weimaraner of only 1 year. This beautiful boy may be strikingly handsome, but his heart is what is really the most amazing part of him.
Rufus is a goofy happy boy. He's still very puppyish although he is already about 95-100 lbs. He's a gentle giant who loves people, other dogs, and even kitties.
Rufus is amazing with other dogs. He is a submissive boy who backs down to even the LITTLE dogs. Other dogs love him and he really enjoys the company of all different types of dogs. He loves the dog park and making friends, and he especially loves to retrieve a tennis ball.
Rufus is a total lover. He loves to nuzzle with you and hug. He loves to have his belly rubbed and loves to be right at your feet. He is very submissive and can be a tad shy when first meeting new people, but he warms up quickly.
Rufus is a good boy in the car and does really well on the leash. He can pull if he wants to though but does great with gentle correction and praise. Rufus does well with a martingale collar. A pinch collar may be a little too much for this gentle giant puppy.
Rufus is close to a perfect dog in so many ways. His heart is huge and silly. He's a showstopper of a gorgeous dog. He bonds quickly and strongly and you can tell he is a loyal, faithful boy who will love you for life.
Rufus will do best in a home where he will have a best friend to do things with. Someone to take him to the park, beach, hikes and other fun things and someone who loves spending a lot of time with their dog. He would do great with another friendly canine companion too - a big, small, young, or old dog will all do well with Rufus.
He will do fine with kids, but he is a big boy so we prefer to not put him with tiny tots. Children over 6 will be fine.
If you are looking for a dog that is gentle, loving, athletic, and have lots of time to spend with your forever friend, Rufus may be the one for you.
Rufus is neutered, healthy, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Venus. Yes she IS a goddess! The goddess of love, licks, wiggles and wags! Just look at how beautiful this purebred beauty is! Her shiny velvet black coat and glistening eyes make Venus one of our most lovely Labrador females ever.
Venus, is a gorgeous and healthy 3 year old Black "English" or "Bench Bred" style female. She has a nice blocky head and is shorter and stockier than her fieldy friends. She is a gorgeous 80 lbs. but could lose a couple lbs to be about 75.
Venus was found at a stray in a Von's parking lot and spent 4 months in a high kill shelter. Four months is a very long time in a high kill shelter and we know she was only kept alive there because she is such a sweet dog and ended up as a shelter favorite. We were alerted to her and a another Labrador and rescued them on their last day, New Years Eve, just hours before they were to be euthanized.
Venus is a typically dominant female, preferring to have her charges submit to her nose for a sniff and then she is fine and chases and plays. She likes the other dogs to behave nicely and doesn't put up with shenanigans without letting them know she doesn't approve! She is really a very typical alpha female - the kind of Lab that makes a wonderful mother and who keeps the house in order. We love the alpha females!
Venus is brushing up on some basic training, and needs someone to continue this with her. She walks on a prong collar and her new owner will want to continue working with her so she will keep getting better on the leash and not pull. Venus is house trained and non destructive when left alone. So if you are gone long hours from the home, she has learned to use a doggy door to potty and is a good girl until you return. Venus also knows sit and shake!
Venus is fairly uninterested in her foster kitty brother so we think she will be just fine living with kitties. What's especially nice is that she understands NO if you tell her to back away from a cat or food or if you give any correction.
Venus will do beautifully as an only dog. She would also do fine with a submissive male companion to keep company with and play. She will not do well with another alpha female. Two alpha females tend to get into quite a bit of trouble!
We haven't seen Venus around children that much, but she is a gentle, friendly, loving girl to all and just wants to please and have her very own family. We think she will do beautifully with children over age 7, but may be too much for toddlers so we prefer not to place her with tiny tots.
Venus is vet checked and approved! She is spayed, microchiped and up to date on all vaccines.
This is Sarah, a sweet pretty purebred chocolate Labrador female of 3 years. This darling girl is medium sized at about 70 lbs and is just an absolute joy. Sarah is a beautiful girl with sad soulful eyes and a rich chocolate coat. You just want to hug and kiss her with that sad face.
Sarah is a very good girl. She loves the 4 other dogs she is fostered with and loves all people. She's a wiggler and wagger and loves to be part of what is going on.
Sarah was found as a stray and ended up in a high kill shelter where no one came for her. She sat there alone and confused and finally we were able to get her out and into a safe and loving foster home. And she has been having a ball getting to know her foster family and enjoying her soft bed and good food.
Sarah is a fairly mellow girl. She's easy going and fairly quiet. She plays a little with her foster friends and likes to follow her foster mom around the house. Sarah is housebroken and well behaved indoors. She likes to lay on her bed and takes herself outside to potty. She enjoys her toys and is non destructive.
Sarah will do best in most homes. She would love another friendly canine companion to share the day with if you work long hours, or will do fine as your one and only true love. We do not know how Sarah will do with cats as she has not met any cats, but she seems overly alert to squirrels so she likely will chase kitties too. We prefer not to place her with cats. Sarah will do fine with children as she is a gentle girl. Children over 6 would be best but we can consider toddlers on a case by case basis.
She will need a nice walk every day and would love lots of nice outings with her new owners. She's a Lab and Labs love to do stuff! So beach trips, park trips, and visiting are always fun. She likes the car and rides nicely inside so she is a good driving companion if you are running errands or going on a trip. Sarah is a wonderful medium energy Lab perfect for so many families.
She is a healthy girl who is spayed, microchipped and up to date on her vaccines.
Oh boy! Meet Dino! Dino is a super adorable wiggly happy purebred Labrador Retriever. He is a male of about 5 years and has a gorgeous pale yellow coat. Dino is an English or Bench bred Lab meaning he is a stocky guy with a nice blocky Labrador head.
Dino was found wandering the street of Taiwan, sick, starving, and afraid when he was taken in by a local rescuer who brought him to TUAPA, a Taiwanese rescue organization who we work very closely with.Indi Lab makes an attempt to take in purebred Labs from Taiwan when we are able to do so as these dogs have no options for adoption there.
Dino is an amazing pup. He absolutely loves everyone and everything. He adores other dogs and gets along famously with everyone. He is just a very happy typical Lab in every way. Dino especially loves carrying soft toys in his mouth. He LOVES soft toys! Dino can be very mouthy but he uses no pressure with his mouth - just soft grabs to tell you he loves you. So probably no toddlers for this boy, but he is such a gentle guy that we think he would do beautifully with children.
This beautiful boy has a few teeth that are worn. In Taiwan when people own dogs, many keep them in cages the way people normally keep birds or hamsters. It's very sad. We believe Dino spent the first years of his life attempting to chew his way out of a cage. In the future it would be nice for his new family to do a really good dental cleaning on Dino. It's very, very sad the way these animals are treated. And with Labs especially, it is extremely cruel to isolate them from their people and confine them in a small cage. With a dog like Dino who is so loving, we cannot imagine him living in a cage and it breaks our hearts.
Besides being hands down the most adorable Labrador, this boy's temperament is OUTSTANDING. His doggie social skills are amazing and he love and affection toward all people and all dogs are some of the best social skills we have seen in any Lab.
Dino is a very good boy. He sleeps nicely in his crate and has learned to use the doggie door to go potty. He is learning his basic commands. He is a typical Englishy Lab with less energy than most of the feildy Labs. he's a little stubborn and if he doesn't want to go with you he will lay down to have you rub his belly which is pretty cute. But they he will listen and come with you. He's perfect in the car and likes car rides. He almost never barks at all and seems quite trustworthy in the house.
Since he loves the soft toys, he may confuse childrens stuffed animals with his own toys which is to be expected with all dogs.
Dino is about as close to perfection as you can get. If you are looking for a medium energy happy guy who loves to wiggly, carry toys, and be your buddy, this is the guy. Dino is neutered and up to date on vaccines.
Otto 2 adopted!
Otto is the cutest, sweetest boy in the world. Otto is a beautiful purebred yellow male lab of 3-4 years. He weighs 60 lbs and is a really good looking boy with a pale yellow coat and a nice blocky head.
Otto loves other dogs and loves people. He loves his toys and the ball and carrying toys around. He has fabulous doggie manners and does wonderfully with all other dogs he meets.
Otto is pretty good on the leash, but pulls a little. He'll need a little bit of leash work and a pinch collar to do his best.
Otto is very well mannered in the house and is completely housebroken.
He has been left for short periods of time uncrated and has done very well. He loves his crate and enjoys being in it through the day while leaving the door open and he sleeps nicely in his crate till morning.
Although he does not know any commands he is learning and will need his new family to continue these efforts. He wants to please so he is learning fast.
Otto is a total lover. He loves being with his people.
We do not know how Otto would do with cats so we will not place him with them.
He loves belly scratches and play time (ball time) outside with his foster friends a lab and a pug. He gets along very well with them and takes everything in stride.
He enjoys the car and is very well behaved. He has not yet barked or cried for any reason.
Otto is a little mouthy at times but needs some work in taking treats as he can be very fast in taking them. So no toddlers for this boy. but he will do great with older kids.
Otto is a medium energy boy who is pretty mellow and very easy going. He would love another friendly canine companion to keep company with if you are at work all day. Or he will do fine as your one and only.
Otto is healthy, up to date on vaccines, and neutered.
Hannah is a pretty shiny pitch black purebred female Labrador of just 1 year. She is a beautiful girl and is sweet as can be.
Hannah is great with other dogs and loves people. She is a medium energy girl who is very good in the house. She is learning her housebreaking skills and how to use a doggie door.
Hannah is about 55 lbs and is a pretty little girl with a sweet face. She loves to carry toys around a lay at your feet.
Hannah came to us from a high kill Los Angeles county shelter where she was in danger. When we met Hannah we knew she was coming home with us.
Hannah's coat is a little rough and her skin a little flakey from bad nutrition. She has had a nice bath and feels better and looks beautiful. Good food and some fish oil will make Hannah's coat soft and luxurious.
Hannah will do best in a home with another friendly canine companion if she alone during the day. She will do best in a home that is prepared to work on her leash skills as she pulls pretty hard. She walks nicely on a pinch collar.
Because Hannah is a young dog she will need lots of exercise and fun things to do like dog park, dog beach, hikes, and lots of walks.
Hannah doesn't jump up on you and is on the smaller side so she will do fine with little children.
We do not know how Hannah would do with cats so we will not be placing her with them.
If you are looking for a sweet purebred Lab on the smaller side who is young, frisky, and sweet, and if you are prepared to continue her housebreaking and provide lots of exercise, Hannah may be for you.
Hannah is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Vernon! Vernon is the sweetest, most darling yellow Labby boy ever. He is a pale yellow boy of about 60 lbs and personifies sweetness. He is so beautiful with his buttery coat and loving soulful eyes. He loves to cuddle and lay at your feet. What a love this boy is!
Vernon came to us from the single WORST shelter in all of California where the largest amount of dogs are killed. We were alerted to him and got him out right away. He never would have gotten out with his life. He came to us sick, underweight, and sad and in a short period, this boy had become the happy wiggly loving Labby guy we knew he would.
Vernon is a year old, very playful, and loves everyone - dogs, people, and cats! He's a funny boy with a great sense of humor who's frisky and sweet. He loves his toys.
Vernon is a gentle sweet and loving Labrador with the best heart. He is the best of the best with lots of energy to play and settles beautifully at your feet in the house or on his bed next to his foster Kitty sister.
It was clear Vernon had never been inside a home, so he had to be housebroken and is learning what is and is not his to play with. It's amazing how smart he is and how willing to please. He is now completely housebroken, and is sticking to his toys! He really wants to make his person happy.
Vernon is in a nutshell a happy, wiggly, loving, frisky, and playful young Labby boy. He will do best in a home where he will get to go to the dog park, and get lots of exercise, beach trips, etc. In exchange Vernon wants you to know he promises to be the prettiest dog in the neighborhood with the cutest nose and the best kisses ever.
Vernon loves kids, but because he's only a year and playful, we won't be placing him with tiny toddlers. He may knock them over and that can be annoying to moms and dads, not to mention that toddlers can become afraid of a pup that knocks them over. Children over 5 would be lovely for Vernon.
Vernon will do great in a home with another friendly playful canine companion or as your one and only. He will also do fine with kitties as he is fostered with one who is his buddy. He likes to try to play with his foster kitty sister, but she lets him know when she's not in the mood and he takes her correction. If you are looking for a very loving Labrador that only wants to please Vernon is your boy.
Vernon is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and neutered.

Meet Hampton, a super handsome dark chocolate 2 year old purebred male Labrador. Look at this boy! Gosh, THIS is why we love Labs. This gorgeous specimen is a fine example of a male Labrador. But don't let his looks fool you into thinking that's his best feature. This boy has a heart of gold and a classic Lab tale wag that will clear even the toughest coffee tables!
Hampton is a young healthy and happy Labrador. He is very sweet and affectionate, loves people, and loves other dogs. He especially loves going anywhere in the car. he loves the car! He will hop right in and a window seat is preferred thank you!
Hampton came to us from a high kill shelter far inland. He absolutely hated it there and was so unhappy being stuck in a kennel. He is thrilled to out of jail and awaiting his new life with a loving family.
Hampton is a young lab who will need plenty of exercise, dog park, beach trips, tennis ball throwing, and other fun things. But he settles down beautifully with his people too. As long as Hampton gets his exercise, he is a very calm and cuddly boy.
Hampton is about 75 lbs of chocolate love. He's a wiggler and a wagger. He is not a barker but will bark if left alone outside if you are inside and he knows it. He wants to be with his people. He'll do fine outside when you are gone.
Hampton will do fine with children over 7. Toddlers may be too small for this happy guy who may knock them down with out meaning to.
Hampton will do best in a home where he will get plenty of exercise. He would enjoy another playful friendly canine companion or will do fine as your one and only. He will need just a little work on the leash but will walk beautifully with a pinch collar.
Hampton is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Jasper is a gorgeous purebred Weimaraner of 2 years. He was listed as a 4 year old at the shelter but our vet feels he is only 2. You can see this boy is very young with his white teeth and goofy personality. Jasper has a short smooth silver coat and a beautiful face with a gentle expression.
Jasper loves everyone and every animal. He loves saying hi to all he meets and loves greeting other dogs. He has a lot of doggie friends and is quite popular. We think he will do great with kitties too as he was disinterested in several cats he met. He may be perfect for a home with kitties though he may need a little bit of getting used to a new kitty in his life. He just seems to take everything in stride and is a super mellow boy.
Even though Jasper is mellow and calm, he can turn it on. He is an athletic dog who could be a fun jogging partner or hiking buddy. But on days when you don't want to do a whole lot, he will be fine with that too. He just wants to be with his person doing what you like to do best.
Jasper is medium size Weimaraner at 70 lbs. He's perfect for the breed standard size wise.
Jasper is a calm boy, medium energy, and settles beautifully in the home. He loves to go for car rides and rides like a quiet gentleman! Many people think Weimaraners are hyper nervous dogs, but honestly this is rarely the case. Most of the Weims we rescue are mellow sweethearts who do great in myriad environments.
Weims can be more sensitive than Labs. Their feelings can get hurt and they do better with softer correction than the Labs do. They are intelligent and take correction beautifully. And of course we think they are just the most beautiful dog.
Jasper loves his foster brother a male Labrador. They enjoy spending time together, taking turns chasing a ball, and settling down with their foster dad to watch TV. Jasper loves to be part of whatever is going on. If you are there, he likes to be there too. He also loves his friends Brody and Kodi, 2 of our rescue Weims that have since been adopted and come to visit Jasper in his foster home. We love the picture of the 3 Weim butts below!
Jasper is a beautiful dog with a sweet expression and outstanding temperament. He will do great with other dogs in the home, and will be lovely with children. He may be a tad too large for tiny toddlers but kids over 6 should be just perfect.
Jasper loves to do things. He will love a family that will take him to the beach, on hikes, and even to dog park. He loves his walks and walks nicely on the leash. He knows how to sit and he loves lying next to your feet on his bed.
He will do great with another friendly canine companion if he must spend workdays alone. Or he will do fine as your one and only love.
Jasper will steel you heart in seconds. He is an old soul in a young Weimy body. His calmness and gentleness make him a zen master. He is simply a pleasure to be with.
Jasper is a healthy boy of perfect weight. He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccines.
is a darling, adorable, huggable 5 month old female purebred Labrador
puppy. She is jet black and is large for her age with giant paws! She
has the whitest baby teeth and loves everyone.
Shadow is beyond
wonderful. This sweetheart is a submissive girl who is lovely with all
other dogs and wants nothing more than to please her person. She is
learning her commands and how to walk on a leash and she loves to go in
her crate like a good girl when it's time for bed or anytime she is
Shadow takes treats gently and eats her food nicely. She is gentle for a puppy and has a wonderful temperament.
will do best in a home ready for a puppy Lab and who has plenty to time
to spend with her. Puppies cannot be left alone for long hours with no
one home. So a work from home or stay at home owner is best.
She will do fine with children but puppies can really be just too much for toddlers.
beautiful girl is very special and so darling. There is nothing sweeter
than a Labrador puppy and this age is just the cutest. She's really
just an absolute doll. She doesn't beg for food and tries so hard to be
a good girl.
Shadow is up to date on her vaccines and has been spayed.
If you have lots of time and are ready for a puppy, please complete an application to adopt and follow up with an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
This little darling is Cricket. She is a purebred 1 year old black female Lab who will steal your heart in seconds flat. This sweetheart of a Lab is just about everything anyone could ask for in a new friend.
Cricket is a lover. She loves people - everyone she meets. She is calm for a young Labrador and is so eager to please. She has superior temperament and all the makings of a perfect dog.
Cricket loves other dogs and has great doggie social manners. She has met many dogs while in foster and has made friends with everyone. She is a playful girl but also can be very laid back. She will wrestle and run and then sometimes just sit by the sidelines and watch.
Cricket is a very affectionate dog. She wants to please her person and she wants to be a good girl. She is pretty good on the leash but at times can pull so she is learning. She is a medium sized Lab at about 55 lbs and is really a beautiful girl. She is stockier than her brother Goose who is also available for adoption.
Cricket and her brother were found as strays together and were brought into a very high kill Los Angeles county shelter. We were alerted to them by a volunteer and raced out to meet them. One we evaluated them, we knew we would take them into our rescue due to their wonderful personalities and temperaments.
Cricket will do best in an active household where she will get daily exercise and trips to the dog park, dog beach and other fun activities with her new owner or family.
She will do best with another friendly canine companion close to her age if her owners are planning to be gone during the workday. If someone works from home or is home much of the time, she will do great as an only dog.
If you are considering adopting two dogs, Cricket and her brother Goose are a perfect pair! They play together and adore each other. They can spend days together while you are at work.
Cricket will do great with kids, but toddlers are too small to be with a young playful Lab.
Cricket is healthy, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and spayed.
To meet Cricket, please complete an application to adopt and follow up with an e-mail to RPVMom@aol.com
Goose is a delightful and darling 1 year old yellow male purebred Lab. Goose is about as sweet as they come and so wonderful to be with.
Goose is a medium sized Lab. He is underweight right now at about 50 lbs. He should be a 60 lbs Lab at his ideal weight.
For a young Lab Goose is a pretty calm guy. He settles nicely after he has played and had his exercise and he rides beautifully in the car while running errands. He's not a barker, digger, or chewer and he loves everyone he meets. Goose is absolutely nuts for the ball and will retrieve it as long as you can throw it.
Goose loves other dogs. He loves to play and make friends. He has made a few really good friends in foster care and especially loves the young Weimaraner Kodi he is playing with in one of his photos. He is fostered with another male young Lab who he loves playing with and also fostered with his sister and Cricket who is also available for adoption on this page.
Goose had an especially wonderful time when we brought about 6 dogs to visit with him. He enjoyed meeting other fosters, playing, socializing, and just enjoying the day.
Goose and his sister Cricket, another purebred Lab of the exact same age, were turned into the shelter together. We do not know why they were turned in but we were told they were strays who were found wandering together. Because Goose is a little thin, they may have been lost for a few days before being found and brought to the shelter.
They were in a very high kill Los Angeles shelter when we were alerted to them and after meeting and evaluating these dogs we knew they would be coming to us.
Goose has a wonderful temperament and is a friendly, happy, and outgoing boy. He loves people and is extremely affectionate. He really wants to please and will train up beautifully.
Goose is already learning to walk on the leash properly and to sit. He needs a bit more work on his basic commands and leash work, but he is a great medium size and is very easy to handle.
Goose is the perfect dog for a family looking for a real sweetheart of a dog that enjoys going to the dog park, dog beach, hiking, family walks, and playtime. He will do fine with children, but because he is young and playful, he sometimes jumps. This is easily correctable and he needs to be worked with a bit more on his jumping but we prefer not to place him with toddlers.
Goose will do great with another playful friendly companion close to his age. He will be fine left alone during the workday so long as he has another dog to play with and keep company. If you are looking for two Labs, you might consider adopting Goose with his sister Cricket since they get along so beautifully and make a lovely pair who will be fine left alone during the work day.
Goose is a young boy so he will need his daily exercise. A good walk everyday is wonderful and trips to the dog park are really great for him to play and get his energy out. Also dog park will continue his socialization with other dogs which is so important for all young dogs and especially Labradors.
Goose is a great dog to take anywhere. He would love to hang out with you while you run your errands or take the kids to school. Or if you work from home, he will lay by your feet.
This adorable Labrador has the best heart. He is just a lover and only wants a home to call his own.
Goose is healthy, wormed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines and neutered.
If you feel Goose is a good fit for your family, please complete an application to adopt and follow up with an email to RPVmom@aol.com
Goldie 2 adopted!
Meet Goldie 2, a lovely petite yellow purebred female Labrador. Goldie is an AKC registered Lab and is 4 years old. She's a petite girl at just 60 lbs.
Due to financial and other concerns, Goldie's family was no longer able to care for her so they contacted us to take Goldie in.
Goldie is a very affectionate dog who loves her foster family. She is such a good girl at home and is very gentle.
Goldie had to be spayed and she did great, and now Goldie is ready for adoption!
Goldie was raised with children and cats so she is wonderful with both. She is also good with other dogs, but a typical female in that she likes to be in charge. She is slightly undersocialized with other dogs and can sometimes be shy.
Goldie is housebroken, very well behaved in the home and a great overall companion dog. Goldie takes treats gently and is extremely smart. She loves car rides, sqeaktoys and being brushed.
She doesn't know how to share toys well with other dogs because she never lived with another dog. So she will probably do best as an only dog. She will be fine with another submissive sweet companion dog, but it will be up to her new owners to help her learn to share toys and get along. She is doing fine with her foster Labby brother Bobby.
If you are looking for a medium energy, kid friendly petite and purebred female lab, Goldie may be the one.
Goldie is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines and ready for a new loving home.
To meet Goldie, please complete an application to adopt and follow up with an e-mail to email@example.com
Layla 2 adopted!
Meet Layla. She is a stunning blue purebred AKC registered Weimaraner female of 3 years. This gentle beauty is a lovely example of this wonderful breed.
Weims come in gray and blue. Blue is an especially lovely color. She is a nice dark blue and is really amazingly beautiful. Just look at these photos! This girl is really outstanding.
Layla is in wonderful shape with a gorgeous athletic build. Watching her run is just beautiful.
She is wonderful on the leash and knows her commands. She also knows a cool trick. When you shoot at her and say "Bang" she will fall on her back and play dead!
Layla is a lovely and beloved dog who has lived with her caring family since she was a puppy. Sadly due to terrible illness in her family Layla has come to us to find a new loving home. Her former owners are devastated on having to give Layla up and only want the best home for her and we agree. She certainly deserves just the most wonderful home.
Layla is a real sweetheart. She loves people and is wonderful with other dogs. She can be a tad shy when she first meets you, but warms up quickly to steel your heart.
Layla meets other dogs nicely and does fine a dog park. She especially enjoyed meeting several other Weims this week who she hung out with while there.
We do not know how Layla will do with kitties so we prefer not to place her with them. Some Weims do not do as well with smaller non canine animals so without a history of living with a kitty, we feel it is best Layla goes to a home without cats.
Layla is basically an independent girl who loves affection but isn't all over you to get it. She has a lovely balanced personality and is a pleasure to be with. She's fine laying on her bed while you do your thing, but also will come up to you for love. She's just the perfect mix of affection and independence.
She is a medium energy girl who is still young at age 3 so she will need some nice daily exercise from her new family and would love outings to dog park and dog beach if you are in the mood. We think Layla would be a nice hiking companion once she is bonded with her new owners and they can confidently let her off leash.
Layla will do best with a family committed to helping her adjust to losing the only family she has ever known and will give her the time and patience to settle into her new home. Weims in particular are sensitive dogs and change is not as easy for them as it can be for other breeds. Because Layla is such a wonderful girl, we think she will do just fine settling in.
Having a nice secure routine will help Layla settle into her new home. And lots of walks always help a dog bond more quickly with a new owner.
She will do best in a home where she will get lots of attention and exercise and would do fine with children as well. We prefer not to place Layla with toddlers however as she is a large dog that may knock them over. Children over age 6 will be fine.
Layla will do fine with another friendly canine companion who is somewhat submissive and sweet. She will also do well as your one and only love.
Layla is trustworthy in the house and car and is housebroken.
Layla will be spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped prior to adoption.
If you love Weims as much as we do and you feel Layla may be a fit for your family, please complete an application to adopt and then follow up with an e-mail to RPVmom@aol.com
Meet Dover, a friendly, sweet, lovable purebred Labrador male. This pale yellow boy is just as lovely inside as he is out. He's 2 years old and a medium sized boy at about 65 lbs. Dover is a real lover. He loves to come up to you and lay his head in your Lap. He especially likes kids. He is fostered with 7 and 11 year old boys and he loves them. He loves following his foster family around the house and being part of the goings on.
Dover is also fostered with 2 Lab mixess who he really gets along great with. He is very good with other dogs and has nice doggie manners. He will do great with another friendly canine companion to keep company with during the workday or fine as your one and only love. Dover will need leash training. He is pretty good on leash with a pinch collar but he can be reactive toward other dogs while on leash and requires a correction. He is doing much better and is great with other dogs when he is off leash. A little work on this and he will be perfect.
Dover is housebroken and not destructive in the house. He likes his crate and will go in on his own. He also likes to sleep in his crate. He doesn't love being left alone but seems to do fine. Dover doesn't like to go in the car. He gets nervous. We think who ever owned him probably never took him in the car except maybe to the vet so he hasn't learned that going in the car is always fun! His foster mom will be bringing Dover in the car to take the kids to school so he can get used to going for rides.
Dover is very cat curious. We don't think he would kill a kitty, but we honestly prefer not to place him with them as he will definitely give chase. Dover will do great in a home where he will get his daily exercise and hopefully some dog park trips to see other dogs. He's not that into playing with other dogs, but he does like their company. Dover is not a hyper dog. He is a fairly mellow boy who is easy going and loves being part of a family more than anything.
Dover is healthy, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Emma and Billy adopted!
Emma and Billy are a beautiful pair of bonded purebred 3 year old black labs. They were purchased from a breeder in Templeton as pups and are litter mates. They have been together their entire lives.
These loving, happy and affectionate Labradors were living as outside dogs on an unfenced 10 acre property near Paso Robles. They spent most of their time in a small pen. Their family realized that such great dogs needed and deserved more, so they released them to our rescue when a foster spot for both together opened up.
They have been potty trained and are non destructive inside the home since their first day. They have a history of being excellent with all children and all other dogs. They play together beautifully and also enjoy playing with all the other labs they have met in foster. These are balanced, sweet dogs who get along great with other dogs and love all people.
Emma is 70 pounds and a taller lankier Field style American lab. She has a super pretty face and a perfect body. Billy is a Bench Bred English cuddler with a stocky body and the BIG BLOCK head Lab lovers adore. Billy is 98 lbs. and has some "splashing" on his legs and chin. "Splashing" can occur on the legs, muzzle or chest in purebred Labs. We think is so interesting! It's called splashing because it looks as if the Lab has been splashed with color. You can google "splashing in Labs" to learn more.
If you were waiting for an excellent pair of playful purebred's her is your chance! You would never need to worry about leaving them alone together while you were gone, no matter how long as they have had only each other for all of their lives! And while they are over any puppy destruction issues, have the enchanted and excited spirits that love being exposed to all they have missed. Emma and Billy are spayed, neutered, microchipped and UTD on shots.
Sunny is a gorgeous purebred yellow 2 year old male Labrador Retriever. This boy has the cutest face ever with a sad look. He is just adorable. He has the softest buttery coat and most wonderful disposition.
Sunny is a dream dog. He loves people. He especially loves the children he is fostered with. They like to climb into his crate with him and snuggle and he loves it!
And Sunny does perfectly with kitties too! He is actually afraid of cats a little so he is an excellent choice for a family that has cats.
Sunny is also wonderful with other dogs. He is a submissive boy with good manners and really enjoys the company of other dogs. He would love to have a friendly canine companion or to be your one and only love.
Sunny loves the dog park. He loves to play with the other dogs. He is sweet and conflict free and just does so well with many different types of dogs.
Everyone who meets Sunny says he is the best doggie!
Sunny must have not been allowed in the house with whoever once owned him. The house is new to him and he is getting used to all the noises like the toilet flushing and other common household noises. But he is doing great even though he was scared at first. He is just a very happy go lucky guy. He didn't even seem to mind the vacuum cleaner!
Sunny is a non destructive dog who is a very, very good boy. He is housebroken and knows how to sit. he is learning his other commands and walks nicely on the leash with a pinch collar. He also rides beautifully in the car except sometimes he likes to ride shotgun.
He is a calm, mellow, well behaved boy who will do well in most homes. He will do great with children and would love a home where he will get a lot of love an attention.
Sunny came to us from a high kill Los Angeles County shelter where he was in danger. Upon meeting and evaluating Sunny we knew he would come home with us due to his superior temperament. He is just a lover in every way.
Sunny is a big wiggler too. He loves to wag his tail and smile at you!
Sunny is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. All that's left now is a loving home to call his own.
If you are looking for a lover of a Lab that is good with cats, dogs, children and all people, this boy may be for you!
If you think Sunny is right for your family, please complete an application to adopt and follow up with an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Junior is a 1 year old purebred chocolate male Labrador who is happy, well adjusted and just loves everyone. Junior is especially wonderful with cats. He ignores them and sometimes they scare him so he runs away. He is fostered with several cats and is great with all of them. Junior also loves dogs. All dogs. He is fostered with another 1 year old male Lab who he loves playing with and a dominant 4 year old female Lab who he also loves and is very respectful of.
Junior is on the smaller side for a Lab and is more "English" with a shorter stockier body and blockier head. He's about 65 lbs and just the perfect Labby size. Junior was turned into the shelter by his owner who was moving. They turned in 3 dogs, Junior, a boxer, and a lab mix saying they couldn't take the dogs with them to their new apartment. With so many people losing their homes, families are forced to move into apartments that don't allow dogs. It's very sad.
Junior came to the shelter suffering from Demodex which is a non contagious mange mostly suffered by puppies and is due to a compromised immune system from not being cared for properly. With good nutrition and love, Junior has overcome the Demodex and is now ready for a loving home. He is healthy, happy and his coat is looking more beautiful everyday. He still has a few small spots of hair growth coming in and in no time he will look gorgeous!
Junior is a wonderful dog for a family with cats or kids or a family that wants a friendly playmate for their dog. He loves playing with other dogs. He will be a perfect family dog. Junior is a medium energy Lab who will need his daily walk and would love trips to dogpark to play. He is not hyper and settles beautifully in the house. Junior is crate trained and goes right into his crate without argument. He sleeps through the night peacefully and is 100% housebroken. He is not destructive and not a chewer or digger.
Junior will do best being fed high quality food to continue his coat health. No cheap kibble for this boy. The best is a grain free food which is what we always recommend for all Labradors as no Lab does their best on kibble containing grain. While in recovery we didn't want to neuter Junior so he is intact. However he is now healthy and we will be scheduling his neuter immediately. He is up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Sable 2 adopted!
Meet Sable, a lovely petite purebred black Labrador Retriever of about 1 1/2 years. Sable is a smaller Lab at just 62 lbs! She's a beautiful girl with a pitch black velvety coat and gorgeous burnt sugar eyes. But she's not all looks! This sweet little girl has the most wonderful personality and best disposition.
Sable is great with other dogs and does fine with most cats. She may chase a kitty, but overall ignores them. She does wonderfully with her foster Labby brother and fine at dog park. But honestly she is less about other dogs and all about retrieving a tennis ball and being with her person. Sable only wants to please. She knows her basic commands and is good about waiting and sitting before going out the door.
Sable is a wonderful medium energy dog who will do best with an active owner or family. She would love lots of ball throwing - as much as you are up to! She would also love trips to dog beach, jogging, and going on hikes with her owner. She will do great with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only. Sable will do fine with children, but we prefer not to place younger Labs with toddlers because they are a larger dog who can knock toddlers over. Visiting toddlers will be fine, but daily life with toddlers and wiggly Labs can mean a lot of bumped heads and crying babies.
Sable is spayed, up to date on shots, housebroken, microchipped, and ready to love her new family.
Bella means beautiful and that she is! Bella is a gorgeous purebred AKC bred Silver Labrador Female. Silver Labs are very uncommon and we do not see them that often. Bella is amazing. She knows sit, down, stay, come, and "paw". She is wonderful on or off leash, amazing with all other dogs, and wonderful with kitties.
A Silver Lab has a silver coat sort of the color of a Weimaraner. But in reality a silver Lab is truly a chocolate Lab. Silver in considered chocolate in the conformation of purebred Labs. Labs come in three colors: Yellow, Black and Chocolate. A fox red or white Lab is actually considered a yellow and a silver Lab is actually considered a chocolate. Like Dudley Labs who are Labs with liver noses and pink eyeliner, silver Labs really don't meet the proper conformation for a purebred Lab, but many people love the dudleys and love the silvers too. We love them all and they are sure beautiful!
This beautiful and gentle female is 6 years old and a stockier Lab. She is more of an "English" or "Bench Bred" Lab than a "Field" or "American" Lab. Bella is a true retriever. She loves the ball and will retrieve for as long as you can throw it. She is a little chunky right now and should lose about 25 pounds to be her perfect weight of about 80 lbs. Daily walks and good nutrition will take care of this in no time. But initially, Bella will have more Bella to love, hug and kiss. It's very important that her new family be committed to excellent nutrition (raw food or grain free kibble) and daily exercise. This is not negotiable for Bella as we want to see her in the best possible health as soon as possible. Labs especially should not carry extra weight.
Bella is a very special absolute doll of a Lab. She is happy, friendly, wiggly, settles beautifully in the house, is not destructive, is obedient, trained, perfect with cats and dogs and kids, and just an absolute joy to be with. She deserves only the most special home.
Bella is a healthy girl who is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
This is Heath, a gorgeous purebred chocolate male Labrador of 2 years. He is 70 lbs and is just a beautiful Labrador in both looks and temperament.
Heath came to us from a high kill shelter where he was in immediate danger of losing his life. This is because he suffered from entropion eyes that required surgery which costs money. Most people would not adopt a dog knowing they have a large medical bill right out the door. When we met Heath we knew we had to save him. His sweet loyal personality and calm nature was just too good to pass up. Entropion is a condition where the eyelids turn inward just enough that the eyelashes rub against the cornea of the eye. It is a very irritating and painful condition and left untreated a dog lives in constant suffering. Seeing a dog this wonderful and knowing whoever owned him did not tend to this problem is very upsetting.
Luckily Heath has had his surgery through Indi Lab Rescue and 14 day's post opp he is doing great and sutures are out. He feels so much better and is much happier and so are we. Heath still has a little redness in his eyes and they look a tad droopy but in about another week this too will be gone.
Heath is wonderful with other dogs. He is a lovely boy who gets along with everyone. He especially likes his foster brother, another chocolate Lab, and the two of them enjoy each others company while his foster mom is at work. Heath loves to retrieve. He is a real retriever! He will go for a tennis ball as many times as you will throw it. It is his absolute favorite thing in the world. His new owner should buy a "chuck-it" and he will have one tired dog!
Heath is a medium energy to mellower Lab who can turn it on for the ball and off leash parks, but who settles nicely in the house. He is a gentle boy that will do great with children as well. Toddlers may be a little tiny for him since he could knock them over, but kids over age 6 should do very well. He will do best in a home where he will get daily exercise and fun outings with his family. He wouldn't go great in a home where he will spend long hours alone without at least another dog to keep company. Heath is a good boy on his walks and in the car. He's a fun dog and a pleasure to be around.
Heath is healthy, neutered, and up to date on vaccines.
Meet Amelia! Amelia is a lovely purebred yellow dudley female Lab. This little doll was listed at the shelter as 2 years old, but when we got her we could see she is just a puppy at about 8 months!!!!! Amelia is a dudley which means instead of black eyeliner and a black nose, she has pinkish eyeliner and a liver colored nose. We LOVE the dudleys and think she is just adorable! Amelia is a real sweetheart. She's a little shy at first but a true lover. And she's underweight so we are putting some much needed nutrition into her. She loves her foster parents and pretty much loves everyone. And believe us when we tell you it's not possible to not fall in love with her when you meet.
Amelia is very good with other dogs and likes to play with them. We don't know how she would be with kitties so we will not place her in a home with cats. Because she is just a pupster, she will do best in a home where she will get plenty of dog park trips to continue her doggie socialization as well as lots of exercise every day. She loves to be part of a family and do fun things. But in terms of activity and energy, Amelia is a mellow dog who doesn't require the amount of exercise most dogs her age do. She is very laid back and easy. Amelia will do great with another playful friendly canine companion to keep company with or as your one and only love.
Amelia is a healthy little girl who is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Meet Moose, a purebred male Labrador of 1 year. No one has more fun than Moose. He is a big boy of about 90 lbs of pure wiggling love. Moose loves everyone and every dog. He even likes cats. Moose is very puppyish and playful. He loves other dogs and would love a playful playmate or a home where he can go to dog park to play. He's a very social boy who likes to greet everyone and meet other dogs.
Moose needs a little training. He tends to jump - at his size that's a no no. He would do great in a basic obedience class and would really enjoy it. Moose is too big for toddlers so although he loves kids so much, no little ones under age 7 for Moose. Moose would love a home where he can get lots of fun activities and daily exercise. He needs a really good walk every single day and would love trips to dog beach, hiking, dog park, or other things people love to do with their canine companions.
Because Moose is large and playful, he really does need a home with a family who is up for having a large playful dog. Moose's tail wagging can clear a coffee table in seconds and he really IS a Moose so a little puppy proofing will be in order so fragile knick-knacks and baubles are safe from the Lab's otter tail! Moose is stunningly beautiful. He is solid pitch black velvet with expressive burnt sugar eyes. He is a sight to behold. You cannot walk him down the street without everyone commenting on "what a beautiful Lab" he is!
Moose is very healthy! He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
This is Kona, the most gorgeous chocolate purebred male ever! Kona is 4 years old and close to 100 lbs of pure handsome Lab. He is a big, wonderful, loving Labrador Kona is a very sweet and lovely dog. He is trained, housebroken, trustworthy in the house, knows all his commands, and is a very smart boy. He's a mellow guy and is pretty close to perfection.
Kona is a calm and gentle Lab but he is also a dominant boy who loves and does great with strong leadership. He is very intelligent and does best with a strong leader who will enforce the rules. Kona likes rules and loves to obey. He will not do well with a whimpy leader. If you are a good leader, this boy will be perfect for you and will show you just how well he is trained. He's pretty impressive. Kona is wonderful with kids, but he is just too big to go with toddlers. He will do best with children over age 9. Kona absolutely LOVES the water and pool. He regularly dives into his foster dad's pool and swims around and he loves to go in after the ball. He is a true Labrador and water dog. He would love trips to dog beach and would be a nice hiking partner. Kona will do best in a home with dog savvy owners who like to set rules for their dogs. Kona likes this and responds beautifully. He will do fine with another friendly submissive companion or as your one and only love.
He is healthy, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and ready for love.
Meet little pup Aspen. He is a 6 month old adorable purebred yellow lab pup. He is current on all vaccinations, has a microchip and will be neutered soon. He's a healthy happy boy who meets every criteria for a Labrador Retriever. Aspen loves water, the dog park, and playing with other dogs of all sizes. Most of all he loves his human companions and responds with love and affection in every situation. Aspen is still a puppy weighing just 42 lbs., and he still has some growing to do.
His ideal new guardian will be committed to Aspen's further training with patience and gentle methods, and will be able to spend the time it takes to continue raising this youngster to his full potential. Adults or families with children at least 12 years or older will be considered. Aspen likes to play and romp, but he settles nicely for a dog his age and accepts being crated especially with a Kong toy filled with goodies. He also has a preference for the shotgun seat in his foster mom's car, although lately he likes the back seat, and rides very nicely enjoying the scenery. So far he seems housetrained and has not had any accidents indoors. He also walks very nicely on leash and is a pleasure to take for a stroll through the neighborhood, a big plus for the little guy.
The very lucky person who is able to add this wonderful pup to their family will never regret doing so, and we hope to find Aspen's forever home soon. Aspen will do best in a home that is ready and committed to owning a Lab puppy. Lots of exercise, chew appropriate items, patience, someone home much of the time, and a nice obedience class are musts for this little love bug!
Caster is a stunningly handsome AKC registered purebred Weimaraner of 3 years. This boy is truly beautiful inside and out and just a total lover. While we love the Labs, we have a very soft spot for the Weimaraners and take them in as often as we are able.
Caster is a really good boy. He loves all people and all dogs. He's even trustworthy with kitties and grew up with them. Caster lived with a pit bull and cats. He is a very well adjusted low key boy would get's on well with all other critters. He is gentle with small non canine animals which is a very nice plus for this boy. Caster is a medium energy boy. He will require his daily exercise and trips to dog park and dog beach and other fun outings, but he is not a high energy dog and he settles beautifully in the house. He will do well in a home with most families and with children who are older than 5 who won't get knocked over. He's a gentle boy who wants to please.
Caster is a healthy boy who is neutered and up to date on his vaccines. He will be microchipped prior to adoption and will come with his AKC papers.
Baci is a darling purebred yellow English Labrador of 8 years. The adorable butterball is just perfect in every way. It's almost impossible to believe that he came to us from the single most high kill shelter in all of California on his last day. Baci was seconds away from losing his life but now all he has to worry about is which soft bed to lay on and which toy to carry around in his mouth.
Baci is a beautiful dog. He is a stocky English Lab of 88 lbs. He's a tad chunky and really should be more like 78 lbs which we are working on! Until then, there is just more of Baci to love. Baci mean "kiss"! Since this boy is so full of love it was the perfect name for him. Everyone loves Baci. When he goes anywhere, everyone has to pet him, kiss him, and comment on how darling he is.
Baci is a very mellow boy. He's super easy going and loves to hang out with his person. He also loves other dogs and is wonderful with all of them. He's a submissive boy who only want to wiggle and smile. He really is just the best. Baci loves his foster Labby brother and sister who he is staying with. He loves his foster mom to and he is just so happy to be in his foster home interacting with the dogs, going on nice walks, and having friends. Baci is a wonderful dog for a family looking for an easy, perfect dog who is totally trustworthy and just a complete lover.
At 8 years young, Baci has many years of love to give to his new family and just wants a home to call his own. Baci suffers from arthritis in one of his rear legs. He gets around great and loves his walks, but he is also stiff at times and so he takes a non steroidal anti inflammatory which really helps! Losing the extra weight he is carrying around will really make all the difference for this boy. With a good diet, not too many treats, and nice daily walks, Baci will be doing great in no time.
Baci is the kind of dog you can take anywhere. He is so good. He's obedient, trustworthy, mellow, submissive, and just perfect. How often can you say that? Baci is a very special boy who deserves the most loving home. He will do well in most homes but we prefer a home with few stairs for him. He is a great companion to be with toddlers and wonderful for someone who works during the day. And if you work from home, this boy is so great because he will let you get your work done without disturbing you except to lay at your feet and wag when you say "hi Baci!".
Baci is a healthy boy who is neutered and up to date on vaccines.
Parker is a darling young 1 year old purebred Labrador male. He is yellow and is a dudley which means he has a liver colored nose and chocolate brown eyeliner. He is absolutely adorable. Parker's dew claws have been removed. He has soft strawberry blond fur and beautiful burnt sugar eyes. His expression is soft and sweet and his face gets a little crinkly and cute when he looks at you. Parker is a young boy of about 70 lbs, but he will fill out to be about 80 as he approaches 2 years of age.
He's a really happy guy and is a very good boy. He's got nice young Lab energy but is not a hyper dog and settles nicely on his dog bed in the house. He sleeps on his dog bed too as he does not like to sleep in a crate at all. Parker is housebroken and not destructive. He loves his toys and playing with other dogs. He will do best in a home where he will get plenty of daily exercise, trips to dog park and dog beach and a little training because he only wants to please. He knows sit, come and down and would love to learn more! Parker will do fine with another friendly canine companion too. Since he's young it would be best if he is not left alone for long workdays if he is an only dog, but should do fine with a friend to keep company with.
Parker will do great with kids too, though we prefer he go with children over age 6 as he is young and could knock a toddler down. Parker is a wonderful Lab of superior temperament who does well with people and other dogs. He is a perfect dog for a family looking for a best friend to do fun things with.
Parker is neutered, healthy, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Hobie is a darling purebred male chocolate Labrador. This pretty boy has a great blocky head and is a wonderful size at just about 65 lbs. Hobie is about 2 years old and is just the sweetest boy you will ever meet. He loves everyone and he loves other dogs. He just gets along with everyone! Hobie is just a little on the thin side but otherwise in great shape. His gorgeous coat is a beautiful rich chocolate color.
Hobie loves his foster Lab brother CJ and is getting along famously with him. Hobie loves the tennis ball and other toys. He also loves his walks and is a very good boy on the leash. He's a more medium energy Lab and needs his exercise, but not tons and tons of it as he's a pretty easy going boy with a mellow attitude. He enjoys just laying around and playing with a toy, or laying at you feet calmly. He really loves to be by his people or with his foster brother.
Hobie came to us from a very high kill Inland Empire shelter where he was in immediate danger. We met Hobie and were thrilled to see what a nice purebred Lab he was so naturally he came home with us!
Hobie is a really good boy and very obedient. He will do best in a home where he will get his daily exercise and would love another friendly canine companion to hang out with. He'll do fine with children, though we are working on his jumping so no toddlers for now. He is really learning not to jump!
Hobie is housebroken and seems pretty trustworthy in the house. He's also a very good boy in the car. Hobie is neutered, healthy, and up to date on vaccines.
Goldie is an adorable purebred yellow Lab female of 1 year. Darling Goldie is a big treasure in a small package. At such a young age she has all the playfulness of the pup, but the manners of an older dog. She is trustworthy in the house with a doggy door. She loves to fetch a toy or romp with other playful pups, even when they are twice her size she holds her own.
Goldie has quite a bit of basic training. This is some of the best behavior we have seen in one so young and bounced around a bit. She will sit eagerly for treats. She will sit stay. She knows to stay outside even with the door open when commanded to 'stay'. She walks very nicely on a leash with just a flat collar. She goes into a crate and will sleep or rest calmly, but she prefers to sleep on a dog pillow next to her people's bed. She gets along with all of her foster dogs, Including Niki, a senior alpha female and Skip a larger yellow male. She is submissive when given boundaries. You can see her resting in the fall leaves with chickens running in front of her, so we think she might be fine with cats as well.
Goldie is UTD on her shots until February so we prefer not to early revaccinate a young pup. We suggest you discuss with your vet as many are on the 3 year program for the dhlpp so she might need 2 more years before getting that as well. Goldie is available on a "spay waiver" as her appointment is not for several weeks and she is available for adoption. That means if you are the lucky family to get Goldie you must bring her back to Santa Barbara or take her to a number of hospitals we use in LA that might be closer to where her new family lives. If you use one of our hospitals her spay expense is included in her fee.
Meet Nigel. Nigel is a beautiful purebred black male of about 2 years. He is a gorgeous shiny black boy with a nice blocky head just like we like 'em! This happy wiggly lover is all about the love. He loves people and absolutely loves other dogs - especially his foster Labrador brother Bosco who he shares toys nicely with and like to give kisses to.
Nigel is a medium energy boy. He's young so he definitely needs his daily exercise including walks, jogs, dog park, dog beach or whatever you feel like that day. But he settles very nicely and is basically a low key guy. Nigel loves the tennis ball and loves retrieving. He would love someone to just throw the ball for him for a 1/2 hour every day for fun. But he's really up for what you are in the mood for and that's part of what makes him a really nice companion.
Nigel came to us from one of the worst high kill shelters in LA County. He was in danger there and so once we met him, we knew he was coming with us. Nigel is just a very, very nice Labrador. Just what we like to see when we evaluate our dogs for intake into the rescue. His temperament is sound and he's just a cruiser with an easy going happy attitude about everything.
Nigel will do best in a fairly active home where he will get his daily outings and lots of love and attention from his owners. He will do great with another friendly canine companion male or female and it would be nice if that companion were close to his age, although he does great with the senior Lab he is fostered with. He will also do well as an only dog with all the attention for himself. Nigel will do fine with children though we do prefer to place him with kids over age 5. Some of the younger labs can knock a toddler over without meaning to. Nigel will also do fine with kitties. He's not perfect, but he is good. He may give a kitty chase, but he doesn't want to hurt them and only wants to be friends. If his new owner is open to working just a little bit with Nigel, he will be a lovely companion to a kitty.
Nigel is a healthy boy who is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Slugger. This gorgeous English Bench Bred Lab is beyond beautiful. He is from champion lines and has the temperament to match his outstanding looks and confirmation. Slugger is just a doll in every way. He loves all people and all dogs. He is happy, wiggly and only wants to please. Slugger is extremely handsome with his big blocky head and short stocky frame. He is a perfect size at about 75 lbs and is show quality. But his looks are secondary to one of the best temperaments we've seen. He is 2 years old so he is a young lab with good energy who will need daily exercise, but he is a calm boy and not at all hyper.
Slugger is a medium energy Lab that loves his walks and play time with his foster Labrador brother Mulligan. He enjoys trips to the dog park too where he has many friends. Slugger is obedient and knows his basic commands. He is housebroken and totally trustworthy in the house. Slugger is a very affectionate boy who loves attention and being pet. He likes the ball and retrieving but he is not obsessed with it. He's a good boy in the car too!
Slugger will do best in a home with a family that will provide lots of exercise and where he will get plenty of outings and attention. He would love another friendly canine companion to keep company with too. Slugger will do fine with children but we prefer they are over 6 years. We do not know how Slugger would do with cats. Slugger is just all around a wonderful boy. He only wants to please and is obedient. He is a very special Lab who deserves only the very best home.
Slugger is a healthy boy who is up to date on vaccines and microchipped and Neutered.
Logan is a gorgeous purebred English chocolate Labrador Retriever of 3 years. He is a beautiful dog with a gorgeous coat and big blocky head. He's about 70 lbs and is beautifully bred. Logan came to us from a high kill Los Angeles County shelter where he was in danger. He was originally brought in as a stray and no one claimed him. When we met Logan and saw what a gorgeous purebred Lab he is, we had to get him out immediately.
Logan is an energetic boy with excellent temperament who loves his walks and playtime. He pulls a bit on the leash but does great with a pinch collar. Logan is a very affectionate dog who loves to be pet and be with his person. He loves all people and is great with older children. He is crate trained and likes his crate. He will sleep through the night in his crate with not a peep.
Logan is good with other dogs but is slightly dominant. He is doing great with the 2 labs he is fostered with. He initially wanted to be the top dog, but had stepped back and is actually the last man on the totem pole now. He will do great with another friendly canine companion - especially a female who is sweet.
Logan is a young boy still at age 3 and needs his daily exercise of a good walk every day. He's not that into the ball or toys, but that may change as we spend more time with him. Logan does have lots of energy, but settles down nicely for you at your feet. He is great with kitties and likes all the kitties he is fostered with. He mostly ignores them but may give a kiss or sniff if the kitty is up for it. Logan is not food or toy possessive at all. He has been eating a raw diet as his foster feeds raw and he loves it. Logan will do best in a home with an active owner that will love to give him his exercise and lots of cuddling and love. He's a great house dog and would be a good boy even if you work from home. He would just lay at your feet and let you get your work done. He's also a good dog to take to work if you are permitted as he is so nice.
Logan rides nicely in the car as well and is quiet while you drive. He'll stay in the back and look out the window. He is healthy, neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccines.
Meet Ferris, an adorable AKC Purebred male yellow Labrador. Ferris is 6 years old an a beautiful pale, pale yellow. Ferris is a sweetheart. He is actually the littermate brother of Rocco who is also on this page for adoption. Like Rocco, he came to us when his family was no longer able to care for him and his brother due to circumstances beyond their control. Ferris is a very good boy and fairly mellow. He is excellent with all other dogs and people. He is a little sad about losing his home and settling in to his new foster home where he is doing great with the other Labs there.
Ferris is slightly overweight. It is clear he wasn't walked much in his last home and probably spent a lot of time outside based on his nails being very long when we got him and his elbows having calouses. Ferris is a very gentle low key Lab. He loves to be by your side and loves the company of other dogs. We think he will do fine adopted out without his brother, but if you are looking for two labs, Rocco and Ferris make a lovely pair who get along beautifully. Ferris will do best in a home where he will be indoors with his family, possibly with another friendly dog or where some one is home much of the time during the day so he can have a lot of attention which he didn't get in his last life.
He is a moderate energy dog who will need a nice daily walk but not tons of exercise. His exercise should be kept moderate as he loses a little bit of weight so he doesn't overdo it. Until Ferris sheds a few pounds, there is just more Ferris to love and there's nothing wrong with that! Ferris is a doll and deserves only the most loving caring home. He will do fine with children and even older folks. If you are looking for a sweet dog that is mellow and gentle, Ferris is your boy.
Ferris is healthy, up to date on shots, microchipped, and neutered.
Meet Rocco, a 6 year old darling purebred AKC registered chocolate bear cub. This super mellow boy is just a total doll. Rocco came to us when his family was no longer able to care for him due to circumstances beyond their control. Rocco is a lovely boy with outstanding temperament. He loves all people and is wonderful with other dogs.
Sadly for quite a while before we got Rocco, he was living entirely outside. Because of this he has built up some calluses on his elbows and his beautiful dark chocolate coat has been sun bleached. With a little love and a little time, Rocco will look like the gorgeous boy he should. Rocco is also overweight as no one walked him ever. This poor boy basically was eating tons of food with no exercise. He will need to loose a few pounds and get back into shaper so he will need a reduced amount of food and some nice easy walks to allow this excess weight to drop off safely without overdoing it. As Rocco gets back into better shape, his exercise can be increased. But it's always a good idea to start with gentle exercise with a dog that is overweight and hasn't been walked enough in the past so they can build up slowly and avoid overdoing it. Until then, there is just more yummy Rocco to love.
Rocco is really just a very good, very easy dog that is pure joy to have around. He is so good with other dogs and enjoys trips to the dog park. He's not a jumpy extremely playful boy, but he does enjoy meeting other dogs at dog park. He loves to lay at your feet while you work or watch TV. He's easy to be with and is also a good boy in the car. Rocco is a beautiful dog with a gorgeous English "Bench Bred" stature. He has a stunning blocky head and a perfect Lab expression on his sweet face. He is just a really beautifully bred Labrador. Not only is Rocco beautiful, he is really just a great dog! His personality is the real winner with this dog. He is beautiful inside and out.
Rocco is a healthy boy who is up to date on shots, neutered, and microchipped. If you are looking for a mellow dog who is just a pleasure to have around, Rocco is your boy.
Meet Grady, the adorable 1 1/2 year old purebred Labrador. What a beauty with his gorgeous shiny jet black coat and his big blocky head. Grady is just a doll. He is a happy, wiggly, typical Labrador who loves everyone! Grady came to us from a high kill Los Angeles County shelter where he was in danger. You can see why we rushed to bring him to safety. What a stunning beauty! Grady is a very good boy. He is good with other dogs and all people but he may be a bit much for toddlers as he occasionally jumps up. He is a good candidate for older children and would be a nice buddy for them. Grady is currently fostered with a little pug male and does great with him.
Grady is good on the leash though he sometimes pulls a bit. He is a young lab and has his energy so daily exercise is a must as it is for all youngsters. Grady is a good boy in the house and is housebroken. But because he is young he is not given free roam of the house unless someone is home with him. So far he is showing himself to be trustworthy. At times Grady can be a tad mouthy during play, but he is gentle and sweet and corrects easily. He is great at learning the rules and seems to love training. He has learned to "sit" on command and is learning his other commands. He would love a basic obedience class with his new owners to really learn some fun stuff. Grady will do best in a home that is committed to a nice young Labrador. His new owners will want to take him to dog park, and give nice long daily walks. He also likes toys so his new family should get lots of fun toys for him to play with.
He will go great with another friendly canine companion too or as your one and only love. He is a good boy in the crate and crate training would be lovely for him. Grady is really just a very sweet and very good looking purebred Lab with excellent temperament and the strong desire to please. With his looks and personality, he is just a winner! Grady is healthy, up to date on shots and microchipped. He has an appt. to be neutered shortly but can meet families.
This is Kuro! A stunningly beautiful 1 year old Male Labrador. Just look at how gorgeous this shiny black boy is with is darling face and glossy healthy coat. But don't think his looks are the whole story here. This handsome purebred Labrador has the best temperament and personality around. Kuro is a young Lab at just a year. Really he is still a puppy until he is 2 years old. But unlike most youngsters, this boy is a pretty calm guy for his age. He loves to play, but he also love to just lay by your feet. Kuro is amazing with all other dogs. He is a submissive boy who meets other dogs nicely and is very polite with them. He makes friends easily and other dogs really like him.
Kuro came to us from TUAPA, a wonderful rescue in Taiwan who we work very closely with. He was found on the streets basically starving and he was rescued and brought to a safe place where he was fattened up and brought to perfect health. Kuro is still a tad on the thin side and could use a few more pounds. But he is very healthy and happy with his snow white teeth and glossy coat. Kuro is a really wonderful boy. He is affectionate and loving and has such a desire to please his person. He loves to go to the dog park and see friends - both human and canine. He makes the rounds greeting all with his wagging tail and big smile.
Kuro is still a young lab so he needs his daily exercise even though he is basically a pretty calm guy. He loves his walks and is learning to walk a bit more nicely on the leash. He tends to pull but he is learning to be much, much better. He passes other dogs nicely and is a gentleman. Kuro is not a big jumper so older kids are fine for him. However he is still young and at times can be a typical mouthy lab so no toddlers for this happy guy. He will do best in a home ready for a young Labrador where he can maybe do a nice obedience class with his owner and will get to go to the dog park frequently. Kuro will do fine with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only. We do not know how Kuro will do with kitties so we prefer not to place him with them.
Kuro is a very healthy, happy boy who is neutered and up to date on vaccines.
Sophie 2 adopted!
Meet Sophie 2, the cutest little female Labby girl around! This little girl petite at 50 lbs and is 9 months old. She will grow to be about 65 lbs full size. Sophie is a very slight mix. Probably with pointer, but very, very Labby in appearance. She's a happy girl who loves to play with other dogs and loves people. She really wants to please her person! Sophie is not a hyper girl. She does need her daily exercise, but she settles nicely in the house and loves to lay by your side. She is really just a total sweetheart. Several volunteers claim Sophie would be a good candidate to be a therapy dog!
Sophie came to us from a young couple who has received her as a gift. They simply did not have the time to own a dog at all which extremely long work hours. It was very hard on them to part with Sophie but they new it was the right thing to do for her to get a better life.
It would be great for her new family to take an obedience class with her to help cement their bond and get on track with her training. But she is a very well behaved and lovely girl already! This beautiful girl deserves a home where her new family will be truly committed. This is what young Labs need most. All young Labs need exercise and attention to be happy. They do not do well without it, but when they get what they need there is no better dog!
Sophie will do best with another playful friendly dog as a companion. She doesn't like to be left all alone for 10 hour workdays. She will do fine as an only dog if at least one person is home a lot since she is still young. If you have another friendly young playful dog or if you are home part of the time during the day, Sophie may be the one for you. And if you are looking for the cutest Lab ever, this is your girl. If you are looking for tons of love and really want to give this beauty the best chance at life, she is waiting for you!
Sophie is a healthy girl. She is up to date on her vaccines, spayed and microchipped.
This is Nery. The sweetest boy ever. He loves everyone and is good with other dogs. He is a medium energy youngster on the mellow side and is a really good boy. Nery is housebroken and uses the doggie door to let himself outside to potty. He is trustworthy in the house and is not a digger, chewer or barker. He is a good boy on the leash and doesn't pull to hard. Nery is the kind of Lab that just wants to please. He is a submissive boy who tries to be obedient and make his person happy. He has the cutest saddest face and expression that just makes you want to kiss and hug him over and over.
Nery is fostered with his sister Lina and with an 8 year old boy so we know he is good with kids. But because he is a young lab who is happy and wiggly, he could accidentally bump a tiny toddler over without meaning to. Nery will do best in a home with another friendly canine companion since he has lived with another dog all of his life. Although he may do fine as an only dog too. Particularly if someone is home a lot. He is a young boy of only 1 1/2 years so he will need his daily exercise, park trips and fun trips to dog beach or the like. He should continue to be taken to play with and meet other dogs since young Labs need continued socialization. Nery walks nicely on the leash without pulling too hard. Sometimes he needs a reminder.
Nery is healthy, neutered, up to date on his vaccines, and microchipped.
Saffron is a very pretty yellow female purebred Labrador Retriever. She is 3 years old and weighs about 65 lbs. This pretty girl is such a lover. She likes to stay right by your side and just adores her people. She's a calm dog with some training and knows her commands. She is very good in the house, non destructive and completely housebroken. She also walks nicely on her leash.
At her age, she’s past all the puppy behavior. Saffron is an amazing companion dog. She will lie at your feet or by your side if you let her for she would love to join you on your bed at night.
Saffron is an agile girl and can get over a 6' fence so her new home needs to either have a 7+ foot fence or an electronic fence or she will do great in a condo since she is so mellow and trustworthy. Saffron loves playing with her foster brother and several other dogs she has met to come visit and she loves to retrieve the tennis ball.
Saffron is spayed, healthy, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Michael! This darling adorable purebred Lab is just the BEST dog! Michael is a purebred yellow 3 year old Lab with just perfect temperament! Michael has quite a story. This gorgeous purebred Lab was found on the streets of Taiwan starving if you can believe that. Lucky for Michael, a wonderful rescue group name TUAPA rescued him and brought him to shelter.
In the weeks that followed, Michael was brought to perfect health. He was fully vetted and put on some much needed weight. He was also neutered. It was soon learned how lovely this boy was. He was able to be out with all the other dogs making friends and being such a good boy. And everyone saw how loving and special he was.
TUAPA knew this wonderful Lab needed a great home, so they contacted Indi Lab Rescue right away. Needless to say, we couldn't wait to get Michael into our care and on his way to a better life. Indi Lab Rescue works closely with TUAPA to bring the nicest, healthiest purebred Labradors to California for adoption as there are simply no options in Tiawan for rescued dogs.
Michael is a wonderful boy. He is mellow, easy going, and only wants to please his person. He is not a needy dog and is somewhat independent. He loves to lay by your feet, but is also happy laying on his bed while you do your stuff. And he's so handsome! He has a gorgeous thick honey colored labby coat and a perfect otter tail! He even has a nice blocky head.
Michael is just amazing with all other dogs. He greets all dogs nicely even when he is on leash. He is a gentleman. He also likes to play with another rescued Lab named Kuro. They enjoy wrestling with each other and licking each other's faces. Michael is really an outstanding dog that will do well in most homes. He will be great with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only true love. Because Michael is so good with other dogs, he will do great in a neighborhood where there are many dogs to walk by. It is a breeze to walk him by other unknown dogs with no concern.
Michael is still a young Lab so he will need his daily exercise and trips to the dog bark and even dog beach. He loves the water! But he is not a high energy Lab by any means so he doesn't need tons of exercise. We don't know how Michael would do with cats though we do plan on finding out. Michael will do fine with children also. He loves to be pet and loves attention. Michael is a good boy in the car when you are running errands.
Since Michael hasn't really known what is it like living in a house with a family, he is learning this in his foster home and seems to be very, very happy with the arrangement! Michael is not that into the ball or toys. He's a more laid back kind of boy. He loves his walks and is learning to walk nicely on the leash. He does pull a bit but it's much improved and getting better every day. If you are looking for an easy going sweet Lab to join your family, Michael may be the one for you.
Michael is neutered, healthy, up to date on vaccines and on flea preventative.
This is Mia, the little adorable sweet Labby girl. Beautiful Mia is an AKC registered purebred female Labrador Retriever of 4 years.
Mia is just a total lover and cuddler. She is the kind of Lab you cannot keep your hands off because all you want to do it kiss her, pet her, and snuggle her.
Mia is a very good girl. She is excellent with all other dogs and a good friend. Mia is good with people - especially women once she meets them, but is very shy at first.
Mia came to us from a home where she never got the socialization that is so important for young Lab puppies. Is is so important to take a puppy out into the world to meet strangers and other dogs. Fortunately Mia is perfect with other dogs so we are lucky with that. Normally unsocialized dogs don't do well with new dogs, but Mia is the exception. She is just wonderful with other dogs.
Mia is shy when she meets new people. It will take her some time to overcome this shyness and her new home will need to be patient with her and give her time to become more outgoing. She is also a little afraid of baseball hats so her foster dad is wearing lots of hats around Mia so she will learn that hats are worn by nice people too!
Mia is a submissive girl. She really wants to please. Her shyness breaks your heart and you just want to comfort her, but it's so important not to give attention to a dog when they are feeling insecure. We try to ignore Mia when she is showing that she is nervous and give her tons of attention when she is calm. And it's working beautifully.
Mia will do best in a home where someone will give her time to come out of her shell and will give her lots of love and exposure to the world with trips to the dog park (which she loves!), trips to Starbucks for coffee, and other outings to get her out and about at her pace.
She will do fine with children as she was raised with a 2 year old, but we think we prefer that she go with mellower children if she does go to a family just to keep things a little more low key for her adjustment. Losing her home has been very hard on Mia.
Mia is a beautiful purebred dog with a pitch black shiny velvet coat. She has wonderful temperament telling us her shyness will be something she can easily overcome in the right home.
This lovable cuddler is healthy, spayed, up to date on shots, and microchipped.
This is Oso, the white bear cub! Oso is a beautiful pale, pale almost white male Labrador who is beyond sweetness. This boy is sweet, mellow, slightly shy, submissive, loving, and really just everything anyone could ever want in a Labrador. He is 4 years old and just the nicest dog anyone has ever met.
Oso came to us when his owners could no longer afford to take care of him. He needed to be neutered and bathed and have an ear infection tended to. His owners also had a pit bull that was constantly bothering Oso and making his life miserable. We are so happy to have this dear soul in our care.
Oso is just a lovely Lab. He is wonderful with all other dogs and will all people. He is submissive and does not challenge other dogs preferring to just be a friend to all. Oso is very obedient and only wants to please. He knows his basic commands and only wants to make his person happy. He loves to lay by your feet when you are working or watching tv and loves being in the house with his family.
Oso loves everyone. He even loves kitty cats although he can at times be a tad curious about the kitties he is fostered with. Mainly he just like to smell them and can get a little scared if they hiss at him.
Oso is a medium sized lab at about 70 lbs. He's a tad thin and could use about 5 extra pounds to be just perfect. He will likely already have gained those 5 lbs by the time he is adopted. He is a gentle soul who is quiet and calm. He is wonderful on car trips and may want to lay his head on your shoulder while you drive. He's not particularly playful with other dogs though he will play. He's more of a laid back cruiser with a super mellow personality.
Oso will do best with a very loving owner who will treasure their dog. He's a medium energy boy who will need a nice walk every day for exercise, but not tons of exercise. He would love special outing to dog beach or a hike now and then and more than anything he loves to cuddle with his person. Oso is the kind of dog that will make someone a real best friend.
Oso is healthy, neutered, and up to date on his vaccines.
Ramsey is an absolutely gorgeous purebred 19 month old male. There are no pictures that have captured how handsome this sweet boy is in person. Weighing in at 100 pounds, he is a big boy, and lean. He will continue to grow and fill out for another year or so.
Ramsey is a submissive boy to other dogs, he's very affectionate, and loves belly rubs and rides very nicely in the car. He also loves children. Because of his size, a home with kids past the age of 6 would be best as he might accidentally knock little ones over. But generally speaking, Ramsey is a sweet gentle giant and in many ways, still very much a puppy.
Ramsey had somewhat of a rough start in life, living as an outside only dog. He didn't get regular exercise or training. As we see very often with outdoor dogs, they are always wanting "in"; of course, they always want to be with their people being pack animals.
Because of this, he is currently enrolled in a program that is teaching him basic obedience so he can have good doggie manners and will be a good canine citizen. He is loving his new life, learning, playing and having fun with other dogs, taking car rides, walks and finally having the opportunity to experience the world beyond the back yard.
Because Ramsey is not yet 2, as with all labs, he will require regular daily exercise, at least one solid hour per day. He currently starts off his day harnessed to a treadmill and loves it! But two 30 minute walks a day would do very nicely for him.
Because training and obedience is relatively new to Ramsey, the ideal family will be dog savvy as well as committed to continuing and maintaining his training by setting clear boundaries. Regular daily exercise is key and a main component to training and obedience. Ramsey would love to have another friendly furry sibling to play with and should also continue to be socialized with other nice furry friends.
If you have a home where someone has the time to spend with Ramsey to give him the people time he needs, and another nice furry sibling and kids, Ramsey would fit right in! If you feel you are a fit for this stunningly handsome and sweet gentle giant, please copy and paste the application to adopt and submit it to email@example.com
This is Liberty. Liberty is a stunningly beautiful purebred female Labrador of about 9 months.
This young Labby girl is just darling and a pitch shiny black beauty. She weighs about 55 lbs and will grow to be about 65 lbs at full size.
Liberty is a typical doll baby of a Labrador. She loves all people and LOVES other dogs and playing with them. She will love going to the dog park and dog beach to play with new friends.
Liberty is very eager to please. She would love to do an obedience puppy class with her new owner and already knows how to sit! We really would like her new family to commit to taking an obedience class with her.
She is totally housebroken, crate trained, and a good girl in the house.
Liberty loves her toys and is great about sharing them with her foster Labby brothers. She is very good about allowing you to take anything from her mouth too!
Liberty does pull on the leash and needs to learn her leash manners. She does great with a pinch collar and is learning very fast.
Liberty is a very good girl in the car and rides nicely.
Liberty will do well with another playful friendly canine companion or as you one and only love provided you have the time and can give the exercise a young Labrador needs. She is a young Lab so she needs plenty of play and exercise. She would be a wonderful jogging partner!
Once Liberty does her obedience class and she is bonded with her new family only then should she go to dog park. She plays nicely with other dogs, but sometimes plays too rough and we think a little more socialization in an obedience class would be perfect to get her dog park ready!
Her new home should be puppy proofed with things like remotes, sunglasses, cell phones, etc put away and lots of kongs, nylabones, tennis ball and other toys available for her to play with.
She will do fine with older children but is too playful for toddlers as she may knock them over without meaning too.
Liberty is a quiet girl and not a barker. But she will alert you if someone comes to the door.
Liberty spends the night quietly in her crate until you wake and let her out.
Liberty is spayed, up to date on shots, and microchipped.
If you feel Liberty is the right fit for your family, please complete an application and follow up with an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Meet Lina, the prettiest shiniest black purebred female Labrador ever. This young 1 1/2 year old princess is as sweet as they come. She is just a loving adorable girl.
Lina is a medium energy girl. She is not hyper at all. She is housebroken and uses the doggie door to let herself outside to potty. Lina is very good on the leash and wants to please. She is obedient and loves to be by her person. Lina is a beautiful dog with a gorgeous face and expression. Her looks are stunning, but it's her temperament that steels the show. She's a true sweet heart.
Lina came to us from a very high kill shelter where she was turned in by her owners with her littermate brother Nery (also available for adoption on this page.) Apparently they had lost their home and couldn't keep the dogs. Lina loves other dogs and enjoys her brother very much. You can see them playing together in the photos. They are fostered together as well but will be available for adoption separately as they are young and will do fine together or split. However if you ARE looking for a pair of labs, this is a great pair. They are wonderful dog and keep each other busy playing. They are not a handful at all and are both just medium energy kids.
Lina will do best in a home that is committed to a younger Lab and can provide her her daily exercise and take her to dog beach or dog park to continue socializing her with other dogs. This is important for all young Labs. She has always lived with another dog so will do best in a home where there is another friendly canine companion or where someone is home much of the day. She will also do well with children over 5. She is currently fostered with an 8 year old child and does great with him. Since she is a happy wiggly lab we don't know if she would knock down a tiny toddler. We do not know how Lina will do with kitties as she hasn't met any. So we prefer to place her without them. If you are looking for a truly lovely medium energy young purebred, Lina may be your girl. And if you are looking for a pair of Lab, you could consider Lina and her brother Nery together.
Lina is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
This is Levi! He's a gorgeous purebred 3 1/2 month old lab puppy of only 20 lbs. This little guy is to die for. He is so cute, so cuddly and so beautiful we cannot keep our hands off him!
Levi is a little guy still. He's only 16 weeks old so he's still a little baby. But he is already almost totally potty trained and learning his commands! He's a smart little boy and only wants to please. Needless to say, this boy loves all people and all other dogs. He just wants to play and have fun like all Lab puppies do. Levi will likely grow up to be a medium sized male Labrador of about 65-70 lbs. All puppies grow up!
Levi came to us from a very high kill shelter where we were shocked to find such a gorgeous purebred Labrador puppy. Needless to say he came directly home with us!
Levi will do best in a puppy proofed and puppy committed home. He'll need lots of fun chew toys. He still has his baby teeth! and lots of other toys would be great also. Another playful dog would be fun or he can be your one and only love. Levi is a puppy so he can only go to a home where someone is home most of the time for the next couple of months. His new family should be prepared for puppyhood and all it's shenanigans! Puppies love to have fun!
Puppies can be an excellent choice for families with kitties since you can raise you Lab with them. Puppies may be far too mouthy for little toddlers. Levi should do an obedience class with his new owners once he is old enough.
Levi has already been neutered and has had his second round of puppy shots and is microchipped. He will need his final round of puppy shots in 3 weeks.
This is Duke, a 4 year old extremely handsome apparently purebred male Labrador. Duke has a beautiful black coat and a darling expressive face. And although he has the looks, it's his personality that is his best quality. This boy has outstanding temperament!
Duke is a medium sized Lab at about 65-70 lbs. He's a gentle loving boy who is an absolute pleasure to have around. Duke is an amazing dog. This easy going, mellow boy loves everyone and every dog. He is just a happy boy who loves his people and thoroughly enjoys the company of other dogs even if he is just laying around with them. Duke is also great with cats so he's an excellent candidate for families with kitties.
Duke is a very obedient dog that only wants to please. He has obviously been trained and knows all his commands including sit, down, stay, back up, and shake! He is a true gentleman!
Duke is wonderful in the car and wonderful in the house. He is not destructive nor a digger, chewer, or barker.
Duke is a submissive boy with absolutely not one ounce of aggression or dominance. He's just an easy guy who gets along with everyone.
He takes his treats very gently and is wonderful about his food. You can take toys and bones out of his mouth without a problem.
Duke tends to pull on the leash. He really does best with a pinch collar. He loves his walks and is a good boy when meeting other dogs. Duke is an easy going dog. He's a young lab so he does need his exercise, but he is definitely more of a medium energy dog. He's very calm in the house.
Duke will do well in most families. He would be happy with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only. His stunning looks and amazing temperament make him a truly wonderful dog.
He is a social boy and it would be lovely to have a home where he can do fun things like go to dog beach and have nice long walks. He will do fine with children, but may be too much for little tiny toddlers only because he is a wiggler at times.
Duke is a healthy boy who is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
is a darling, happy, purebred yellow female Lab. This adorable girl is
only about 1 year old and is also on the petite side at just about 60
lbs. Clover is just a doll. She's a typical happy wiggle but who loves everyone and who also loves all other dogs. For such a young Labrador, Clover is a pretty mellow girl. She's definitely not a hyper Lab which is nice considering her age.
loves to retrieve the tennis ball and loves to just play with it while
rolling on her back. She also likes to play keep away with the other
Labs she is fostered with. More than anything Clover loves her person. She loves to be by your side and can at times be very velcro, laying at your feet.
also loves to go on the trails with her foster mom and the other dogs.
She goes off leash and stays right with you! She comes when called and
is such a pleasure to hang out with! This darling purebred
Labrador came to us from one of the highest kill shelters in LA County
where she was in immediate danger of euthanasia. As soon as we met
Clover we made sure she was safe and coming home with us.
will do best in a home where she will get plenty of exercise, dog park
trips, trips to dog beach and other fun activities especially with
other dogs so she can continue to blossom with her socialization
skills. She is so lovely with other dogs that we would love to see that
She will do great in a home with another friendly
companion or as your one and only love. We do not know how Clover will
do with cats so we prefer not to place her with them. Her new
home should plan on providing lots of toys for Clover as well as bully
sticks and rawhides to chew. She will keep to her own toys and chewies
when they are provided.
Clover will also do great with children. She is gentle and cautious. Clover is pretty good on the leash but still needs a bit of work. She's a smaller girl and is very easy to handle. She rides nicely in the car too!
Clover is spayed, up to date on shots, and microchipped.
Meet Badge, a gorgeous pure black yummy Labrador. Badge is a purebred AKC bred Lab with dew claws removed. He has just turned 6 years old and is the most healthy, athletic, water dog ever! Badge is a gentle giant. He's a large lab at about 98 lbs and is not overweight. He's just the healthiest most gorgeous boy.
Badge is a gentle boy. He loves all people and all dogs and was raised with children. Although Badge is 6 years old, he is really much more like a 3 year old dog. He has great energy and stamina, looks like a 2-3 year old lab and certainly acts like one.
Badge loves to swim. He loves the water. He will jump off docks into a river or lake and loves to get the ball. He is doing great at his foster home where he is fostered with 2 other Labs. He really enjoys their company and had made fast friends with them. Badge is trained and knows his commands. He is obedient and seeks to please his owner. He is good on the leash and has outstanding temperament.
Badge came to use after his owners were divorced and left their home. He was a beloved dog and well cared for. He has not issues common to some rescue dogs as he has had a good life and been well socialized with other dogs and people.
Badge will do best with an active family that loves to do things with their dog. He would love trips to dog beach or camping or hiking. He would love someone to throw the ball for him and if you have a pool, that would be just fine too! Badge will do great with children even though he is large. Because he is a gentle and mellow dog in the house and settles nicely he would make a lovely family dog. This boy is really just outstanding. He is as wonderful in his temperament as he is handsome. He will be a great dog for the adopter lucky enough to have him.
Badge is also very good in the car and would be happy to go anywhere with you. Because he is such a good boy, he really can go just about anywhere and is the kind of dog you can take to friends homes and feel confident that he will be a gentlemanly guest. Badge is really everything we think of when we think of a purebred Lab. He smiles, wiggles, love to retrieve, loves to swim, loves people and other dogs, and is just the happiest guy.
He will do great with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only. We do not know how Badge will do with cats.
Badge is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, and microchipped.
This is Mabel. She is a lovely purebred chocolate female Labrador Retriever of 4-5 years. Mable is a little petite girl at just about 60 lbs. She is really cute and just a total lover. She loves people and loves attention.
Mable is very good with other dogs, but she is also a typical female. She likes to be the boss and will correct her foster Labby brothers if they get to out of hand playing. She loves the ball and her toys but is very good at giving them up to her foster Dad. She doesn't like to share her toys too much with her Labby foster brothers and will carry them away from them to play with herself. Mable tends to pull on the leash a bit and needs a little bit more leash training to walk better. She will do great with a pinch collar and since she is a little girl, she is easy to control.
Mable is a very affectionate and loving girl. She has medium energy and will need her walks every day, but she is quite content to lay at your feet and is a mellow girl in the house. She loves to be by her person no matter what you are doing. This wiggly happy girl will do best in many homes. She would love to be an only dog and get all the attention, but she will also do great with another friendly male companion to keep company with. She will do find left alone during the day but would like to have her walk before you go. She would also be a lovely companion if you work from home as she is quiet and sweet and will let you get everything done while looking cute by your side.
Mabel is just a typical Labrador female. Wiggly, happy, loving, intelligent, and desires to please her person. She is a really good girl. She will do fine with children though toddlers could be knocked over without Mabel intending to. This is true for any Lab or large breed dog. But she is very patient with people and loves them and would do great with children giving her lots of attention. She generally doesn't jump up on you although she has done it twice. She responded well to correction which is great. So we do think she will be careful with kids. Mabel rides nicely in the car and is very calm.
Mabel is healthy, spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Roxy, a gorgeous purebred chocolate Labrador female of 1 1/2 years. This girl is as sweet as she looks. Roxy is a very sweet, submissive girl who loves her people and all other dogs. She is also wonderful with cats. Roxy shares her space and toys well with the other fosters and is just such an agreeable lady.
Roxy is a young lab. She needs exercise every day but she is not at all a hyper girl. She settles beautifully in the house and loves to be by your side whenever she can. She is a real people lover and is good with children as well.
Roxy came to us from a high kill shelter. Her owners lost their home and were forced to bring her there. When we first met Roxy we know she was coming home with us. Her owners also had to drop off her brother at the same time. He has since been adopted into a loving home and Roxy is looking for her own forever home.
Roxy has the most beautiful milk-chocolate coat. She's more of a stockier Lab than a fieldy one and has a beautiful face. Roxy doesn't like to spend long hours alone and will do best with a family where she will get a lot of attention. She will do great with another friendly canine companion or just as well as an only dog. She would love it if one of her new owners was home much of the time too.
She will do beautifully in a home with children and with kitties. She may give chase occasionally but doesn't want to hurt kitties at all and is fostered with four of them right now. Roxy takes food gently and will let you remove anything from her mouth. she walks pretty well on the leash and will need a good hour of exercise each day. She is not a barker or digger and sticks with her appropriate chew toys which should always be provided by owners to young Labs. She rides nicely in the car too and is wonderful on errands and trips. Roxy is 100% housebroken and sleeps nicely in her crate.
Roxy is spayed, up to date on shots, and microchipped. She is a healthy playful girl.
Vesta is a lovely yellow purebred AKC registered 2 year old female Labrador. Vesta came to us from a very nice family who's circumstances have changed and can no longer provide for her the way she deserves. This family is also fostering Vesta until her forever home is found and so we are able to provide much history on her. She will stay at her home until her new family comes to meet and adopt her.
Vesta has been lovingly cared for by her family her whole life. She is a loved dog in excellent health who needs a new home to call her own. Vesta is very good with other dogs and has not been around cats so she will not be placed with them.
Vesta LOVES attention. She is a total lover and wants nothing more than to be pet and loved by her owner. She is just the sweetest most loving girl. She is a beautiful purebred AKC Labrador gal whose dew claws are removed. She is 2yrs old, a medium size girl of about 70 pounds. She loves to be around people all the time. For this reason we're looking for someone who works from home or is around a good bit of the day and wants a velcro shadow. We think she'd be better with older children until she learns how to not be so jumpy like pupsters sometimes are til the age of 3.
Vesta does not like water like most Labs do. But she likes lots of love!
Vesta knows her basic commands but has never really had to be on a leash. Our walks are always on the trails leash free, so Vesta may need a little bit of leash work. She is perfect off leash. She loves other dogs but has not been around cats. Like many Labs, Vesta loves food. You have to watch any food left on the counter because given enough time she will find a way to enjoy it herself!
So if you have an active lifestyle of hiking, trips to the beach and other places to be off leash, your best friend is waiting! Vesta is a calm semi mellow dog. But she is young at just 2 years so she does need her daily exercise.
There are also many choices for leash training and walks around a neighborhood. We like the prong/pinch collar, but an easy walk harness or a gentle leader also work well when working with Vesta on the leash.
She is spayed, up to date on shots, housebroken and non destructive in the home.
Sadie 2 adopted!
Sadie is a lovely purebred female AKC registered Golden Retriever female of 4 years.Sadie is a very gentle and mellow dog who adores children. She's a submissive girl who is overshadowed by her current sister, a yellow lab named Vesta also listed on this page for adoption.Sadie's family has had a drastic change in circumstance forcing them to rehome Sadie and Vesta. The girls will be placed in different homes as Sadie is very submissive and will do better if not overshadowed by her sister who takes all the attention.
She will pick things up for attention and prance around whining until you pay attention to her and get the item she has stolen. She does bark when she hears noises that she doesn't recognize outside but is not a barker. Sadie loves to swim, so we are only considering homes with a pool who allow their fur friends in for a dip.
Sadie loves kids and is the kind of dog that you can lay your head on and she would just lay there and let you. She would be fine with toddlers and babies and adores older children to engage in play with her. She has a cute cowlick on her forehead and some graying around her face.
Sadie is a healthy girl who is up to date on her vaccines, housetrained, non destructive in the home, spayed and about 60 pounds - so she is a smaller Golden Retriever. She will be fine with an active family, fitting right in and getting all the attention or with a companion dog who is friendly and submissive and willing to share the attention and love.
Originally Sadie had a canine friend who died and then Vesta came in as a pup when Sadie was 2. Because Vesta pushes her out of the way to get the loving we think this girl deserves to be treasured without the competition because she is mellow and takes a back seat to the other dogs.Sadie is a lovely girl with such a good heart who deserves the best home.
Meet Ruddy, an adorable purebred yellow male Labrador puppy of 8 months. Ruddy is a darling boy! He's about 65 lbs but will grow to be about 75-80 lbs full size.
Ruddy is a happy, sweet, submissive lab. He loves other dogs and loves to play with them. He especially loves his foster Labby sister and they wrestle and play constantly. Ruddy is a very good boy who wants to please. He is learning all his commands and is learning to walk nicely on the leash. He loves to play and needs a lot of exercise. Once he's had his exercise, he will settle nicely and lay down near your feet.
Ruddy is a very typical male Labrador at his age. He is happy all the time, loves the ball, loves his doggie friends, dog park, walks, running and playing. He is not destructive so long as he gets what every puppy needs - exercise, fun, rules, discipline, and attention.
Ruddy has already learned not to jump up on people. This needs to continue to be positively reinforced. He really has learned all of the basics and so long as his new owners continue with his training, he will be just wonderful. He should go to a nice obedience class at his age with his new family. That is always a wonderful way to bond with your new dog and reinforce their puppy manners. Ruddy is a truly beautiful Lab. He has excellent temperament and absolutely no aggression at all. He is submissive and sweet and has everything needed to be the perfect adult dog.
Ruddy will do best in a home where someone is home fairly often in the beginning or at least where there is another friendly canine companion to keep company with during the workday. He will do best with an owner that will be sure he gets a lot of daily exercise and is committed to that no matter what. His new owner must be prepared to enforce puppy rules, go to dog park, and have lots of patience with this sweetheart.
We think whoever adopts Ruddy will be very lucky indeed. He is a special youngster that really has everything one should look for when choosing a Lab as a family member. It will be up to his new owner to take him to the next level as he grows up. He will do fine with older children. Toddlers may be too little for a playful guy like this, but that is really dependent upon the owner and how dog savvy they are. He will probably chase kitties so no kitties for this guy.
Ruddy is a very healthy boy. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Meet Bessie! The cutest ever chocolate bear cub girl. This darling and sweet purebred female Labrador is 4 years old and the most loving mellow sweetheart ever. Bessie is a true doll baby. She is wonderful with all other dogs and all people. She is very happy, wiggly and social and loves to go to the dog park and just run around saying hello to all her new friends.
She especially loves her foster Labby brother who she hangs out with and even sleeps near. Bessie is a very beautiful English (or Bench Bred) stocky Lab with a wonderful blocky head and very sweet expression. But what is most important about Bessie is her temperament. She is just an outstanding dog and will make a wonderful family companion.
Bessie is a tad chunky at about 85 lbs. She really should be more like 65 lbs so she's kind of a fatty at this point. We see this all the time. It's obvious that whoever previously owned her fed her all she wanted and never exercised her. Since she's been with us, she's getting plenty of exercise! With a nice daily walk and the right amount of food, Bessie's excess pounds will just drop off.
Bessie came to us from a very high kill Los Angeles County shelter where she was in immediate danger of euthanasia. Obviously as soon as we heard of Bessie, we were there and got her out right away. She didn't seem to realize her life was in danger when she jumped in the car with another Lab, wiggling and wagging and just happy to be going for a "ride". Bessie is exactly what we look for in our beloved breed: happiness, gentleness, wonderful disposition and that great Labby wiggle we all love so much. There is just nothing like a Lab!
Bessie will do best in a home where she will get nice daily walks, a few trips to the dog park to see friends, and a restricted diet for a little while so she can lose a bit of weight and stay healthy. Until then there is more of this chocolate bear cub to love and cuddle. What could be better? She will do beautifully with a friendly canine companion or as an only beloved dog. She will also do nicely with small children.
Her new family will want to keep her exercise moderate to let her get in shape at a nice pace rather than give her too much exercise right away. That can be hard on a chubby girl.
Bessie is a healthy girl who is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped. All she needs now is a forever family to cherish her!
Meet little Amber! A 3 1/2 month old little female purebred Labrador female puppy. This little pint sized yellow butterball is just darling! Amber is more of a fieldy Lab and not a short stocky Lab. She's very beautiful and graceful.
Amber is a sweet and lovely puppy. Sadly her owners who purchased her from a breeder found that a puppy was too much work for them. This is why it's so important to be sure you are committed before adopting or purchasing a puppy! Puppies are a handful! Little Amber is just a delight. She loves everyone and every dog like all puppies do. She loves to play and run around with her toys. More than anything she loves her foster sister who is a 1 year old labby girl. They play and play! Amber is learning to be housebroken. She's on her way and doing great, but not quite 100%.
Amber will do best in home completely committed to puppy hood and all it entails. She will need plenty of chew toys to teethe on since she still has some baby teeth and lots of other nice toys to play with. Her new home will need to be puppy proofed of course. This means remotes, cell phones, and other yummy items put away! Since Amber is a baby, she will need a home where someone is home much of the time for the first few months. Puppies never do well left alone for an entire workday. Puppies are usually mouthy and may be too much for toddlers so that must be considered. Puppies can be a nice choice for families with cats since they can be raised with kitties.
Amber is a healthy girl and has had her first shots. She will need to be spayed by her new owner by 6 months of age.
Meet Cleo, a petite 5 year old gorgeous yellow female. Cleo is an AKC registered purebred Labrador. She is about as sweet as they come and has a happy wiggle for everyone she meets. Cleo is a small labby girl and weighs about 64 pounds. She should weigh about 5 pounds less. Either way there is a lot of love is contained in this little body.
Cleo has been bounced around quite a bit. She was with the original family who then adopted her to another family who had her living outside. Along the way she definitely had a litter or two of puppies, although thankfully she is spayed now. A friend of one of the Indi volunteers saw this girl and knew the family was looking for a new home because they felt guilty about having her live outside 24/7. So they took her in and then called us. As soon as we met her, we knew she was coming to rescue.
Cleo has lived with 4, 7 and 17 year old kids and is very good with them. She is currently being fostered with 2 1/2 year old twin toddlers as well as two labby brothers who are both 6 1/2 years old. When she first met her two huge foster labby brothers, they came barreling out to meet her. Despite this she maintained her poise and was unruffled by their enthusiasm. She is gentle and sweet and more than anything just wants to be with her person.
Cleo walks very nicely on leash and knows a few commands. Based on our evaluation it appears that somewhere along the way she had some rough handling which is sad and hard to believe given what a good girl she is, but Cleo is no worse for the wear. She is all about the love.
The best home for this good girl would be a mellow and kind home with someone who is home more than not. She has had more than her share of being left alone in the back yard and deserves to be with her person being treasured and loved. Cleo is a very low maintenance and affectionate girl that only wants to be with you.
Because she is 5, a home that is not rambunctious would be nice for this girl who now deserves to be loved and spoiled. Despite being good with kids of all ages, Cleo would do best in a mellow and peaceful home. Cleo would be happy with another nice furry sibling although there is no question that she would be happy to be your one and only. She is eager to please. She is also house trained and non destructive in the house, not a chewer or a barker. This sweet, petite and beautiful girl will bring happiness to any family lucky enough to call her their own. Cleo is spayed and up to date on shots.
And they called it Puggy love..... Meet Violet, (shown here with her friend Dahlia) an adorable female purebred Pug who is definitely not a Labrador! She is 4 years old and is the most darling little pint sized baby. Violet had a hard start in life as she was used for breeding, but she is about to being the best life ever and we couldn't be more excited for her! We found Violet in danger in a high kill Los Angeles county shelter and needless to say, she came home with us right away. Violet went straight to the vet for her visit and got a lovely luxurious bath from her foster mommy.
Violet is so loving and is so happy to be in a safe loving home, and to be clean, flea free, and getting good food! Violet is 16lbs. She is an active, energetic and playful girl and runs around excitedly the way pugs do. Her tail is curled like a donut! She does snore and makes lots of little endearing piggy noises. She is a vocal puggy and she may let out a little bark in her crate now and then to say hello! She loves her baths and power naps. She loves to be on a humans lap and soaking up attention.
Pugs have 2 loves in life…their families and their food! Pugs are lively dogs with an abundance of personality and will give attention galore. The pug is a very social breed that is great with children, adults, and other pets. Highly socialized, pugs are even-tempered, and need social interaction to stay happy and well-adjusted. Pugs are generally a very good fit for a household with young children. Small in size, pugs nevertheless have large hearts and embrace children with good humor and patience. They are susceptible to high heat, humidity and extreme cold.
Violet is healthy, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and spayed.
Meet Libi, a little petite purebred yellow Labrador butterball! This little girl is just about perfect. She is approximately 2 years old and is a small Labrador of about 50 lbs. Libi is as sweet as they come. She loves her people and loves all dogs. She is a submissive girl who wants to please and who bonds quickly and strongly to her people.
Libi loves to have her belly rubbed! And she loves to fetch a soft plush ball we throw for her. She especially loves to eat her food and is so happy at feeding time doing a little joy dance! Libi is crate trained and likes to sleep in her crate. We leave the door open for her so she can sleep in there or come out and sleep on a soft doggie bed. She's quiet and usually won't even wake you up in the morning. She sleeps until you get up.
Libi came to us from TUAPA rescue in Taiwan. We work closely with TUAPA to assist in rehoming purebred Labrador who have no option for adoption there.
Libi is an extremely healthy dog, up to date on her vaccines, spayed and in beautiful condition with soft healthy pale yellow coat, white teeth, and clear happy eyes. This is a very special dog. Libi has outstanding temperament with people and other dogs. She is a fairly mellow girl but also likes to play. So she is really just the best combination of playfulness and mellowness.
Libi likes to do little love nibbles on her person. Many Labs do this and it can be adorable provided the dog is doing it nicely and it doesn't hurt. However because she likes to give love nibbles, we prefer not to place her with toddlers. We also don't know how Libi will do with kitties, so we likely will not place her with them.
Libi is a pretty amazing girl with just the right mix most Lab lovers seek. Her petite size, outstanding temperament, calmness, happiness, and eagerness to please make for a wonderful family dog. Libi will probably do best in a home where someone is home much of the day or where there is another friendly canine companion to keep company with.
This is Guthrie, a beautiful chocolate purebred male Labrador. This darling chocolate boy is 4 years old and about the sweetest ever. Guthrie is more of an English Lab and is only about 65 lbs. He has a gorgeous block head and a wonderful temperament.
Guthrie is a very mellow boy. He's super easy and doesn't need a lot of exercise. A couple of nice walks a day will do. Mostly he likes to lay by your feet and chill. He's a big lover of all people and all dogs. He's just a cruiser going through life without a care in the world.
Guthrie came to us from a high kill shelter where he was in danger of euthanasia. He was a great save and we couldn't be happier to have him in our care.
Guthrie will do great in a number of homes. He would love a friendly canine companion to keep company with. He will do fine with little children also. Guthrie is a good boy on the leash and doesn't pull. He's obedient and knows his basic commands. He's not a digger, chewer or barker either and is not destructive in the house.
Guthrie is 100% housebroken and is a good boy in the car. He doesn't need a crate to sleep in and loves to lay on his bed beside yours at sleep time. Guthrie takes treats gently and is not possessive with is food or toys. He's a good sharer!
Guthrie is neutered, up to date on shots, and microchipped.
Doug is an extremely handsome pure shiny black purebred male Labrador. His photos do NOT do him justice. He is a such a handsome boy! And he has the most lovely personality - just wonderful with everyone. Doug is 2 years old and weighs about 70 lbs. He is the sweetest boy and has a slightly shy temperament. He's a submissive gentle Lab who wants to please.
Doug is a cuddler and a lover. He loves the other Labs he is fostered with and even loves the cats. However he really wants to play with the cats though they want no part of that! The cats he is fostered with take it in stride and everyone gets along beautifully. He may be a candidate for a family with kitties, but he will chase them if they are outdoors and may want to smell and play with them indoors - especially in the beginning while he is making friends. So unless you are prepared to teach him "leave it" and your kitties are good sports, it won't work.
Doug is a young purebred Lab. He's a very healthy medium energy boy who would love a nice walk every day. He's the kind of dog you will love to have at your feet in the evenings as he is low key and such a best friend.
Doug will do best in a home where he will get plenty of exercise and attention from his new family. He will do fine with children but may be too large for little toddlers who he could knock over by mistake.
Doug will do fine with another friendly canine companion too - especially if you work during the day and he is alone. It's nice to have company. But he would also be happy being your one and only boy.
Doug came to us from a very high kill Los Angeles County shelter where he was in danger due to overcrowding. When we first met Doug we knew he was coming with us at that moment. He is so beautiful, but what's special about him is his sweetness. He is a very loving boy who truly deserves a family to spoil him and give him a wonderful life.
Doug is a typical Labrador. He is a happy wiggly boy with a wonderful disposition. He is not destructive and is housebroken. He's a good boy in the car and was lovely at his vet check, steeling our vet's heart. Everyone there loved him and he left with lots of fans. When we first got Doug he was suffering from an upper respiratory infection he caught at the shelter. He was treated and is completely well and feeling wonderful.
Doug is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
And they called it Puggy love..... Meet Dahlia (shown here with her friend Violet) an adorable female purebred Pug who is definitely not a Labrador! Dahlia is 4 years old and is the most darling little pint sized baby. She had a hard start in life as she was used for breeding, but she is about to being the best life ever and we couldn't be more excited for them!
We found Dahlia in danger in a high kill Los Angeles county shelter and needless to say, she came home with us right away. She went straight to the vet for her visit and got a lovely luxurious bath from her foster mommy. Dahlia is so loving and is so happy to be in a safe loving home, and to be clean, flea free, and getting good food!
Dahlia is about 14 lbs. She is extremely sweet, tends to be shy at first, but warms up very quickly. She likes other dogs especially her sister. She is learning to play with her toys and does very well in her crate. She likes exploring the yard and gets excited about the car. Loved her bath and sleeps like an angel. Her skin is just a little dry so she is taking an antibiotic and this is easily fixed with a healthy diet. Dahlia is recovering from ear infections and is just doing so well!
Pugs have 2 loves in life…their families and their food! Pugs are lively dogs with an abundance of personality and will give attention galore. The pug is a very social breed that is great with children, adults, and other pets. Highly socialized, pugs are even-tempered, and need social interaction to stay happy and well-adjusted. Pugs are generally a very good fit for a household with young children. Small in size, pugs nevertheless have large hearts and embrace children with good humor and patience. They are susceptible to high heat, humidity and extreme cold.
Dahlia is healthy, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and spayed.
Little Lola adopted!
Meet Lola, a darling SMALL purebred female Labrador of just one year. She is beautiful girl with a lovely butter colored yellow coat and a sweetly wrinkled face you just want to kiss and kiss.
At just a year old, our precious little Lola has already endured so much. She recently had a litter of pups. Poor girl was much too young; she’s just a pup herself. Lola came to foster covered in fleas and ticks, bad eye infections and if that’s not enough, she has an old wound on her leg that was never properly stitched up like big cuts should! Thanks to Indi Lab, Lola is recovering from her spay, vaccinated, micro-chipped, flea dipped, on topical flea control, and antibiotic eye medicine.
Pretty Little Lola weighs just 47 lbs! She would make a great apartment, condo or small house companion. She’s very housebroken, uses the doggy door and fine in a crate. Lola is very much still a pup and has lots of chewing ahead! She has very sharp teeth still and this means no little ones for she sometimes likes to chew arms, sleeves, toes and socks. Very normal puppy behavior but probably too much for little toddlers! She still learning “no” “leave it” and “drop it.”
Now that Lola is recovering from her spay, her true energy level is shining through. She will require a lot of exercise and interaction to stay out of trouble as all young Labbies do! Her ideal home would be with a person that is prepared for the energy of a young lab and willing to work on her manners. She’s great on a leash and we have yet to hear a bark.
She will need lots of daily exercise, play time, dog park, and dog beach trips to have fun and continue the socialization every young dog must have. She is a sweet girl and wants to please. She will be a great dog, but she is young and young Labs need to get the important foundation to turn into perfect companions.
She will need lots of chew appropriate toys like ropes, kongs, and nylabones and of course other fun toys too to keep her entertained. She’s fairly co-dependent so if to be alone during the day, she will do best with another friendly canine companion. Lola has been exposed to dogs of all sizes, cats, and even horses.
Meet Coco. She is a lovely 2 year old purebred chocolate Labrador female. Coco is a petite girl at less than 50 lbs but she is slightly underweight and should be more like 55 lbs at ideal weight. Coco is the sweetest girl. She has lovely temperament and is the kind of dog that just wants to be by your side all the time.
Coco was used for breeding. And when she came to us from a very high kill shelter, she arrived with a prolapsed vagina from having babies. Thankfully she is fully recovered and is doing perfectly well! She is completing a course of antibiotics but she can now be adopted. Coco arrived depressed and covered in ticks and fleas, very underweight and in sad shape. It was heartbreaking to see such a beautiful Labrador so neglected. To see her now you would never know it was the same dog. She is so happy and so healthy!
Coco is a wonderful girl. She loves all people and other dogs. She prefers to be the only female though if she can help it. She loves her two foster Labrador brothers who are also chocolate Labs and they may quite the trio when seen together! Coco loves the dog park and loves retrieving the tennis ball. She can be a very playful girl when she is in the mood, but is also incredibly mellow loving to just lay by your feet.
She settles beautifully in the house and is trustworthy and non-destructive. She is totally housebroken and very obedient. Coco walks beautifully on the leash. She never, ever pulls and actually prefers to walk right by your side. She is perfect in the car too where she picks a spot to lay down and is quiet and calm during the ride. She will wait nicely for you while you do your errands. Coco is not a barker. But she will bark occasionally if someone comes to the door or comes near the fence.
Coco likes other dogs, but generally prefers her person. So she will do fine as an only dog with all the attention. She will also do well with another friendly calm companion, but better with a male than a female as she can be a tad bossy toward other females in the house which is pretty typical of all dogs.
She is questionable with cats. She barks at them and lunges, but other times completely ignores them. We think she doesn't really know what a cat is and maybe they scare her. She should be placed without kitties unless the owner is prepared and willing to work with her. She does fine with the cats she is fostered with, but her foster knows how to handle the situation appropriately. Coco will do beautifully with children. She likes them and is gentle. Her small size makes her easy to handle too.
Coco likes to chew her rawhides and bully sticks and enjoys her toys. Her new home should keep lots of bully sticks and rawhides for her so she will continue to chew appropriate items and lots of tennis balls and toys to keep her busy.
Coco is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, wormed and current on flea medication.
Buffer is a darling yellow male 3 year old Labby boy. He is just adorable! Buffer is a slight mix but very, very Labby as you can see in his photos. He is a pale yellow cub with a very sweet face and weighs about 70 lbs.
Buffer came to us from a very high kill Los Angeles shelter. This poor boy was so scared there with all the barking and he got filthy in his kennel. His beautiful yellow coat was so dirty. We were thrilled to get him out of there, to the vet, and then to get him a nice medicated bath so he would feel comfy.
This gentle, submissive boy was so traumatized at the shelter. He didn't know where he was or why he was there. Many dogs do very poorly in the shelter and it can be a horrible experience for them. He is starting to decompress from his experience but he is still a shy boy and it will take a little gentle loving care and time for him to really feel secure and fully come out of his shell. This is not a big tough confident dog, but a much more sweet gentle lamb who felt afraid around so much barking and scary other dogs.
Buffer is wonderful with all other dogs. Even small dogs. He is gentle and submissive with them and they all like him very much. He is fostered with several other labs in his foster home and he is doing beautifully with all of them. We do not know how Buffer will do with cats, but we think he may do well due to his gentle nature. If an owner is willing to work with him to teach the "leave it" command with kitties, we would consider placing him with cats.
Since he is a shyer boy, it would be nice to place him in a home that isn't too loud and nutty with activity. Perhaps older children would be ok, but maybe louder younger kids might be a lot for him though we do believe he will do wonderfully with children. We would just like to see his transition be a more low key one so he can adjust at a nice pace.
He is on the mellower side and will need his nice daily walks every day. But he is not a hyper high energy dog. He will be a lovely companion. Buffer would do fine as a treasured only dog or would love a friendly canine companion - even a little one! He will fit in with most dogs beautifully. But his new friend should be a sweetheart like Buffer since he is submissive.
Buffer is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
This is handsome Fegan, a purebred stocky blockheaded English (or Benchbred) male Labrador. Fegan is a beautifully bred Labrador of 4 years with a gorgeous shiny pitch black coat and perfect otter tail. What a beautiful dog! Fegan is bred perfectly to the breed standard. He is only about 70 lbs and a smaller Lab. He is very blocky and very stocky and a total wiggle butt!
Fegan has the ideal perfect temperament we all love so much in the Labrador. He is wiggly, loving, happy, and wants to please all the time. Fegan is wonderful with other dogs - especially his foster Labby brother, another English boy who is chocolate. They are fast friends and so enjoy each other's company. Fegan is a very low key mellow dog. He's super easy. Loves his walks and to lay by your feet. He settles beautifully in the house and is completely trustworthy. He is housebroken and obedient with lovely manners.
Fegan does not pull on the leash either. He walks like the English gentleman he is. He is a good boy in the car too. Likes to go on errands and is trustworthy alone for a little bit while his foster mom does her thing. Fegan sleeps nicely through the night on his bed. He does not need a crate. He will wake you up in the morning when he hears you awaking and is ready to give you good morning kisses. Fegan is a wonderful Lab for a family looking for a super easy, mellow guy. He likes to get his walks of course, but he is not high energy at all. He's a wonderful houseguest and you can bring him anywhere. Fegan would be a wonderful therapy dog! We do not know how Fegan would do with cats so we prefer not to place him with them. He will be lovely with small children or even elderly people. He is gentle, calm and submissive.
Fegan came to us from a woman that pulled him out of a high kill shelter. She liked him very much and wanted to save his life so she contacted us to take Fegan in. We couldn't be happier she did as this boy is just a dream.
Fegan is healthy, neutered, up to date on his shots and microchipped.
Oh meet dear sweet Peaches! Peaches is an absolutely darling and extremely sweet 10-11 month old yellow female purebred Labrador. She's a little thing at only about 55 lbs, but she will grow to be about 65 lbs very soon! Peaches is a dudley meaning she has the undercoloring of a chocolate Labrador (liver colored nose, pink rimmed eyes) and the gorgeous almost white coat of a yellow Lab. This is a beautiful, beautiful Lab.
But forget about looks, what is so very, VERY special about Peaches is her temperament. She is sweetness personified. Just as close to perfect as you can get. She is wonderful with all people and submissive and loving toward all dogs. She has been with MANY different dogs while in foster and is just perfect.
Peaches is so lovely and so well behaved with her very mellow disposition that it's hard to believe that she came to us from the highest kill shelter in all of California - Bakersfield. We were told we had to come and get her immediately or she would be put down for space. So we made it happen! Many dogs do not even have 3 days at Bakersfield before they are euthanized. Poor Peaches came to us very sick and not in the best shape, but she is so healthy and so happy now it's hard to believe it is the same girl.
Peaches is wonderful in the house and car. She is obedient and non destructive. She takes treats so gently and sits patiently and waits for her food. She loves plush toy, other doggie toys, her bed and being invited to cuddle up in your lap if you ask her. She gives nice gentle kisses that are sweet and not messy and slobbery. She is a little lady.
Her tail wags all the time and she loves to plop down by your feet and just be serene! She loves to go for rides in the car and waits nicely while you run in and out doing errands. She took a nice trip in the van with 4 other Labradors to do a nice hike and she loved being with the other dogs and doing fun things. She is the happiest girl in the world.
Although Peaches is a puppy still, she is very, very mellow. She is also quite playful and loves to play with other dogs so it would be nice for her to have a companion or lots of outings to see doggie friends. Peaches is a very special, outstanding girl and deserves only the very, very best home that will truly treasure her for the gem that she is. We don't see them this wonderful that often.
Peaches loves to play but at a recent Lab pool party she had no interest in going in the pool. She is a little curious about water, but is still afraid. So she may not be the water dog some Labs are.Peaches also loves to eat fruit. Especially pears!
Peaches is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Bear Boy adopted!
Meet Bear Boy the huggy bear! Bear Boy is a beautiful 1 3/4 year old purebred black Labrador. He's a beauty and comes with his papers. He's 22 months so he will be 2 shortly.Bear is a happy wiggly boy who loves everyone and every dog. He's just a sweetheart! He's a big bear cub with a soft thick black coat and is just so handsome and loving.
Bear is a mellow boy for a 22 month old, but he's still a young dog and needs his daily exercise and because he's an adolescent, he needs rules, boundaries, and limitations like all dogs do at his age. He's a VERY good boy and loves to please. Bear is definitely mellow compared to other dogs his age and settles nicely in the house so long as he's had his exercise. He loves toys like Kongs and ropes and loves to play with you. Bear is a good boy in the car and rides like a gentleman.
Bear came to us from a family that did not have the time for a dog. He was not getting his exercise and spent a lot of time alone. He lived with a 10 month old child and was very good with him and very gentle. His owners loved Bear very much but wanted him to find a home where he would get the attention he deserves and needs. Sometimes families with parents who both have full times jobs and have little children on top of that, just do not have enough time for a young dog. So we would like to be sure the home Bear finds is one where he will get everything he deserves - lots of time with his owners, continued training, exercise, and tons of love.
Because Bear didn't get enough exercise, he's just a tad chunky at about 100 lbs. He should be more like 85 lbs at his ideal weight so he'll need a good high quality food and plenty of walks to get back into shape. Because he's a young boy it will take no time at all for Bear to be in excellent condition! Bear loves to go to dogpark and gets along great with the dogs there. He loves to play and run around and make friends. Bear tends to pull on the leash just a little bit, but is learning. He knows to sit and wait at every corner and is very obedient with his walking partner.
Bear would do best in a home with owners who are active and will do fun things with him like dog park and dog beach and daily walks of at least 1/2 hour every day. He will do fine with children, but his new owners must realize that a young dog takes time so families with young children will need to make the time for their new dog too! Bear will do fine with another friendly canine companion or as your one and only love. He is non destructive in the house and trustworthy and he is housebroken.
Bear is neutered, up to date on his shots and microchipped.
guess I like the name Tank. And yes Tank IS a sturdy, stocky boy so the
name does suit him. But honestly another name could work as well. Maybe
"Prince" or "Black Beauty" or some other name that also conveys the
regal beauty of this perfectly conformed Labrador. Sure he is a Tank
without a doubt, but he is also a Prince, a King, a Lamb, and a Lover
all rolled into one amazing Labrador.
Look at this GORGEOUS hunk
of Lab! Tank is a stunning, over the top beautiful purebred English (or
Bench Bred) Labrador male. His dew claws have been removed. He is a
shiny, pitch black boy who is a stocky Lab with a nice block head.
Pretty much exactly what a perfect Lab should look like! Tank is
2 years old. He's a wiggler and a wagger and as much as we would like
to brag about this boys looks, we cannot let that be overshadowed by
how spectacular his temperament is. This lover is just everything you
could want in a purebred Labrador.
Tank is a real people lover.
Just walk near him and the tail starts to go. He loves his people,
loves to be cuddled, and loves attention. He pretty much loves to be
with you no matter what you are doing. He'll take a window seat in the
car and be your best buddy for the drive. He'll stay with you nicely on
the leash (with a pinch collar of course!) and he comes when you call
Tank is wonderful with other dogs, but of course he can
also hold his own. He's not completely submissive, but he's not very
dominant either. Sort of middle of the road and is pretty popular with
all the other Labs. He loves to play tug a war with the other dogs and
he of course loves to retrieve. Tank also seems to like water
though we haven't had him at the beach or pool yet but we will shortly.
He was a good boy for his bath and he loved the attention.
is a strong boy who will pull on the leash without a pinch collar. He
loves to be with you and loves to please so his pulling will be an easy
fix. But we prefer that a pinch collar is used by his new owner until
he learns. Plus it makes the walk much more enjoyable. Tank is a
medium energy cub. He will do best in a home where he'll get lots of
daily exercise, outings to the beach and hiking trails, and of course
lots of loving attention. Tank will do fine with children over 5 but
could knock a toddler over without meaning to. Labs are large wigglers
and any toddler could take a tumble around a happy Lab. Something to
If you are looking for a best friend and a showstopper
all rolled into one, look no further. Tank will bring so much joy to
his new family plus he will look great in the family photos as a perk!
Tank is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Dallas is a stunning show quality purebred yellow male Labrador who is about as gorgeous as they come. Not to show off, but Dallas's sire was actually in the Westminster Kennel Club dog show which is the most prestigious dog show around. So Dallas comes from very fine lines! Don't tell him how cute he is although we think he may already know.
Dallas is a darling, cuddle bug of a Lab. He's an adorable wiggler who you just cannot keep your hands off. You just want to hug him all day long. Dallas is just a tiny bit chucky at 90 lbs and should be more like 80. He has perfect breed standard conformation - just a little more Dallas than there should be. Regular exercise and not too many treats will do the trick!
Dallas is very affectionate, kisses all the time. He is a real lover and deserves all the attention in the world. He is a special boy who loves his toys and his people. He likes balls, squeaky toys, and playing keep away (who doesn't?). Oh, and Belly rubs are a must for this butterball of a cub.
Dallas is completely housebroken and uses the doggie door. He does well in a crate if necessary too. Dallas knows some commands but he could use a nice doggie obedience class to polish up his manners and contribute to doggie social skills. Dallas is a very strong boy and he is walking pretty well on a pinch collar. He really needs to work more on his leash skills which is easy with just a little work.
Dallas would do best in an adult home or with older children. He's too much for little ones because he might knock them down. Dallas also does much better with females than males and would be happy with a submissive friendly canine female companion or as an only spoiled pup! Dallas cannot be placed with cats as he will chase them.
Dallas is still a young boy and needs a home that will provide him the companionship he craves and deserves after losing his home. He even has his own security blanket which he sleeps with! Dallas is crate trained and sleeps nicely through the night cuddled up with his blanket. He doesn't need his crate though and is fine without it.
Dallas was rescued from a home in the Orange County. His owner
could no longer provide care for him and because of this, took him to a
the home of a family that owns one of Dallas's litter-mate's hoping
they could keep Dallas. He was there 6 months and the wonderful man, a
construction worker, tried to accommodate Dallas but with the current
economy he just didn't have the money or time for two dogs. Although
well loved and cared for, Dallas just could not stay there. His friends
advised him about rescue and they contacted Independent Labrador Rescue
for help. Now in foster care, we can find this wonderful loving dog his
Dallas is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Have you been waiting for true love? Well here it is. Absolute pure love in the form of the prettiest Labby girl ever. Melody 2 is a lovely purebred yellow female purebred Labrador of 2 years. As sweet as she is pretty, this girl is a very special Labrador.
Melody was rescued from a high kill shelter where she was in danger. Initially we though Melody might be a good working dog for search and rescue or detection work, but after a few days with our trainer we realized that Melody really just wants to be a loving family dog and will bring so much joy to a new family. Melody is a sweet and gentle dog. She is slightly shy but warms up quickly to give you all her love. She is wonderful with people and loves all other dogs. And she truly is a puppy at heart.
Melody is playful and like any young Labrador she can get too playful now and again and thus, may knock a tiny toddler over without meaning to. We think she will be perfect around children over age 5 or 6 who are less likely to take a tumble. Melody knows some basic commands. She does sit perfectly. She is housebroken and sleeps nicely through the night on her bed next to her foster mom.
Melody is wonderful with the other Labs she is fostered with and is having so much fun being around new friends. She is a very pretty pale yellow Labrador and is just slightly underweight. With a few added pounds she will be perfect. Poor Melody also suffered from a touch of fly strike on her ears from being stuck outdoors. That is healing nicely. In a very short time she will be the most beautiful dog in the neighborhood with her gorgeous perfect face and pale yellow coat. She is a truly a beauty.
Melody would love a home that isn't too, too loud and crazy. She would love a family that will have lots of time for her and give her plenty of attention. Something she probably never got. She would love outings to dog beach or time in a swimming pool as she loves the water and is a very good swimmer.
Melody would be very happy with another playful friendly canine companion or as your one and only love. She would not be happiest left alone in the yard all day without another friend as she really enjoys companionship. Melody is a happy go lucky girl with a lovely Labby wiggle. She will steel you heart in seconds and you'll never get it back. If you are looking for sweetness personified, look no further than Melody. She is an angel in fur.
Melody is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.
Sweet Sophie! This sweetheart is a pretty purebred yellow female Labrador. She is about 4 years old and weighs about 65 lbs. Sophie is just a doll. Just the sweetest girl imaginable. She is wonderful with the other dogs she is fostered with including another female Lab and a little wiggly pug male. She plays nicely and shares her toys with the other dogs and they are really enjoying each other's company.
Sophie knows how to "sit" and she is learning "stay". She's a fast learner and wants to please. Sophie is a strong girl and does pull on her leash so she will need a pinch collar which makes walking her a pleasure. She is a gentle dog who takes her treats gently and is not food possessive. Sophie is playful and loves to play with other dogs. She can be a little mouthy when she gets excited in play so she may be too much for tiny toddlers, but will do fine with older children.
Sophie is a real people lover. She adores her people and craves attention and love. She likes to be by your side and loves to be pet and cuddled. She has a very sweet disposition. Sophie is currently sleeping through the night in her crate and doesn't make a peep. She is ready to graduate from the crate and sleep on a bed near the other dogs which is what she would like most. They often nap together!
She is housebroken and non-destructive and basically a quiet girl with mellow yet playful temperament. She's still a young Lab and will need some nice daily exercise and trips to the beach and dog park for extra fun. Sophie rides like a lady in the car and is very quiet during the ride. She is hesitant about getting into big SUVs and probably never spent much if any time in a car before. So she is doing wonderfully! We have to help her out, but lately she has been jumping out on her own with a little coaxing. She is learning a lot about how fun toys are and becoming more curious about them. It's obvious no one ever gave her a toy before. Poor girl! But now she has plenty!
Sophie came to us from a very high kill shelter and in terrible shape. Who ever "owned" her neglected her severely. Thankfully she is well cared for now and well loved. Sophie is currently being treated for terrible ear infections that were permitted to get out of control by whoever had her before. She is suffering from allergic reactions most likely to bad food so she is on a healthy grain free high end kibble and doing very well. Sophie's little darling paws are recovering from lick lipomas due to constant licking as a result of either her allergy to past bad food, or to the boredom of being left alone outside for days, weeks, months on end.
This pretty and sweet angel will soon be the prettiest Lab in the neighborhood with just a little time and care. She has a gorgeous pale yellow coat, black nose, and perfect Labby "burnt sugar" eyes. Sophie is just a gem.
Sophie is up to date on her shots and microchipped. She has not been spayed yet as we were waiting for her to feel much better. She will be spayed prior to adoption or her new adopters will be required to bring her back for her spay surgery which will be paid for by us of course.
Bentley is an incredibly gorgeous 2 year old purebred AKC Labrador. This handsome stud is pure shiny blackest black with a nice blocky gorgeous head. Look at this boys photos! They don't come more beautiful than this dog!
This loving goofball is a real sweet heart. He's housebroken with nice housemanners, but he must have his own toys around to keep him out of trouble. He is very good with other dogs, but honestly is much more interested in retrieving his ball than playing with other dogs. Bentley lived with a 10 lb Boston Terrier and is wonderful with little dogs also. But all things equal, this is a real ball dog - a real retriever! And he will retrieve for as long as you would like to throw! it's a great way to exercise him!
Bentley is a healthy athlete. He is a big boy at a slim and healthy 110 lbs!
He is a great beach and ball dog. Bentley needs a lot of exercise everyday. A nice jog with some ball tossing suits him. He would love an active owner or family. He is wonderful with little children and lived with a 9 month old baby who he adored and was very gentle with. But because he is such a big boy, we prefer to place him with older children who he won't knock over by mistake.
Bentley's owners were forced to downsize and with the economy and baby they could no longer care for Bentley the way he needs. They wanted a much better life for him which is why they contacted us. They very much loved this boy and it was heartbreaking for them to be forced to seek other options.
Bentley is crate trained. He loves his crate and likes the door open. He will go in and hang out with a toy.
Bentley is also a wonderful watch dog. He really lets you know if someone comes on the property and will alert you. He is athletic so he must have a very secure high fence to be on the safer side if he is in the yard.
Bentley will do best in an active home where his owners will take him to dog beach, on hikes and throw the ball for him regularly. He will not do well as a dog left alone in a back yard all day while his owners are at work. Although if he is given ample morning exercise and another jaunt after work, this may work out.
This magnificent specimen of a Lab is awesome to behold. He is truly a beautiful dog with outstanding temperament. He walks wonderfully on the leash with the use of a pinch collar and everyone will stop you along the way to tell you what a beautiful dog you have. He is a showstopper. He passes other dogs like a true gentleman.
Sparrow is a dainty petite little Labby girl of about 1 year. This angelic sweetheart is the most precious thing. She is so lady like, submissive and sweet and has perfect manners. Sparrow is a slight Labby mix probably with pointer. She is a little girl at only about 50 lbs and has a dab of white on her chest and paw. She has a very pretty, sweet face and is just the best girl.
Sparrow does everything like a lady. She eats her food so delicately and takes treats gently. She gives nice sweet kisses, not big old slobbers and is very obedient. Sparrow is slightly shy at first and is very submissive especially with other dogs. She is so good with the other dogs she is fostered with and they love her. She greets other dogs nicely and shares toys well.
Sparrow loves her baths. She stays perfectly still and lets you do a real good job. She even lets you blow dry her! She would be lovely with children and loves all people. We do not know about kitties although she seemed to ignore several cats she saw. She may give chase. We just don't know.
Sparrow was probably not very loved in her original home. When we first got her she was underweight. She was afraid to go into the car as if she had never seen one, and was the same about the house. She was afraid to come inside. Now she loves being inside and is totally housebroken and trustworthy indoors.
She came to us from a high kill Los Angeles County shelter. We got her out and into a foster home the second we could as we really fell in love with her and wanted to shower her will love, a cushy bed, a nice bath, good food, and tons of attention. Sparrow has a lovely temperament. She is a mellow girl of medium energy. She's nice on the leash and just a sweet easy dog to be with. She settles nicely in the house and is a good girl in her crate at night.
Sparrow would do best in a very loving home. Preferably not too loud and crazy as she is more of a low key girl. She would do wonderfully with another friendly canine companion or as your only love. She will do fine with kids, although we would like to see her go to a family that really has a lot of time to spoil her as she never had that before and deserves it. Sparrow is a good candidate for therapy work once she eases even more out of her initial shyness (it's almost gone!) and is a good candidate to take to other peoples homes on visits as she is a lady and a good guest.
Sparrow is a very healthy girl who is just a tad underweight still and should gain maybe another 5 lbs to be at 55 lbs. She is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Gunner is an adorable purebred white dudley male puppy. We seldom see these dogs and he is truly gorgeous. This stunning beauty is a showstopper and you can't walk down the street with him without everyone commenting on how handsome he is! But what is truly special about this boy is that you cannot help but fall head over heels in absolute total LOVE with him. He is so loving, so happy, such a good boy, that he steals your heart in seconds and holds it forever.
Gunner is just a puppy at only 6 months old and is a happy sweet wiggly boy who loves just everything and everyone on the world - even cats (though he can get playful and chase!) He is always smiling and wagging. He's a little guy still at only 37 lbs with a long way to go with growing.
Gunner loves toys and carries one, two, three toys in his mouth at a time as he parades around the house wiggling and giving you adorable eyes. His two favorite things in the world after people and other dogs are water and tennis balls. He absolutely loves to be squirted with the hose and get baths. Loves it! Loves the water soooo much. And he will retriever the ball for as long as you would like to throw it. He will also drop it gently at your feet when he wants you to throw it again.
Gunner has a very soft mouth. You can take anything from him. He will simply drop whatever you are taking without you having to even ask.Just put your hand on the object and tell him drop and he lets go.
Gunner is very good with other dogs and very playful. He's also a big snuggler and kisser. He's a very affectionate boy who loves to be near his person and would actually like to just lay in your lap and look into your eyes! He loves to be pet and stroked. Gunner is a young Lab so he will do best in a home where he will get lots of exercise every day. He would love trips to the dog park and dog beach and of play dates with other dogs. He would do beautifully with another playful friendly canine companion!
Gunner is just a puppy still so his new owners should plan on doing a nice puppy obedience class with him. He would love that and he will learn all the things young pups should learn. He is the perfect age for one of these classes. Gunner will do best in an active home where he will get lots of attention. He will do fine with older children but may knock toddlers over since he is a playful guy. He will need a puppy proofed home with lots of chew appropriate toys like kongs, tennis balls and other Labby delights. He's extremely intelligent and learns very fast. That's so great! However the downside is that he's so smart. That means he figures out how to get to things and might get bored. So lots of toys and fun things around and lots of training which he LOVES to do! He likes to be challenged!
Since he is a youngster it would be preferable that his new family have someone home much of the time in the beginning until he is used to his new home. Puppies don't do well left alone all day especially if they are the only dog. Gunner is truly an all around great dog. We can't imagine a sweeter puppy. He will give so much joy to his new home.
Gunner is neutered, up to date on his shots, and microchipped.
Fiona is a lovely purebred Labrador of 2-3 years. She is a stocky more Englishy girl and is a dark chocolate color. Fiona has no dew claws so we know she is breeder bred AKC registered though we have no papers on her. She is a well bred dog will very good conformation.
Fiona is a real sweetie. She's an energetic, playful girl who loves toys and LOVES water more than anything in the world. She absolutely LOVES to swim! She also loves the hose and getting baths! She is very good with other dogs, but she can sometimes be bossy with FEMALE dogs although she is easily corrected. Fiona is not good with cats and shouldn't be placed with them.
Fiona is good with children, however she is sometimes a jumper so no toddlers for this girl. She is learning not to jump. She is also curious and likes to jump up and put her front paws and face on the counter to see what's up there so she is a bit of a counter surfer and is learning not to do that. So her new home shouldn't keep food on the counter.
She is very puppyish and has lots of energy so she needs plenty of exercise every day. She would do fine with another friendly male canine companion to play with. She loves puppies and younger dogs especially as she was also a mother having had a litter in the last few months. She is very patient and tolerant with puppies. Fiona is good on the leash when a pinch collar is used. Without it she is a puller but getting much better. With the pinch collar she walks like a dream. She loves her walks and needs a good hour every day to offset her energetic personality.
Fiona likes the crate though she doesn't need one. She likes to go in and we leave the door open for her. She loves to lay in there with a toy. She is very found of squeaky balls and will carry them around and throw them for herself. She likes to carry toys in her mouth and it's very cute.
Fiona is a velcro dog. She wants to be by your side a lot. This should mellow out some over time once she knows where she lives and that she is owned, but in the beginning she will be a little needy and want to be by you a lot. She is totally housebroken and uses the doggie door to let herself in and out. She is not destructive in the house so long as she has her own toys laying around. She's very trustworthy alone in the house and car. Fiona is a wonderful dog for the right family that will give her lots of exercise and attention. She's THE most loving dog.
Champ is a beautiful, big, purebred almost white Labrador of 3 years. He is a very mellow easy going boy. Champ is really a beautiful dog. He is just amazing to look at and is a large, magnificent, handsome Lab who also is truly goofy, wiggly and happy all the time. I guess that about sums up most Labs! And Champ has also been doing a bit of therapy work. His foster has been taking him to a retirement home to do therapy work with some senior citizens there and Champ just loves it. He is a natural therapy dog!
Champ is a real lover. He loves to put his paw on your knee, look into your eyes, and wait for you to let him kiss you. He loves being pet and cuddled and doesn't mind if you pull on his ears or tail either. He will be great for young children.
Champ came to us from another high kill shelter. Champ had an owner and lived in a home with young children. When the shelter notified the owner that Champ was there, the owner never came. Poor Champ sat at the shelter for 14 days waiting. Finally the shelter system released him to our care after 14 days in a small kennel sleeping on dirty concrete.
This grateful lover will steal your heart without you even realizing it. He is as sweet as he is beautiful. Champ adores all people big and small and loves to lay at your feet and follow you around the house. Champ is a playful active boy, but incredibly mellow in the house. He loves his crate and will go in by himself to spend the night without being asked. He's very quiet and easy going, but he can also have a raring good time at play time.
Champ is good on the leash too. In the beginning of his walk he may pull a little, but in no time he is walking by your side and enjoying his stroll. He passes other dogs nicely and greets everyone with a wag and a doggie smile. Champ is good with other dogs. He likes to play a bit sometimes, but he also doesn't mind just hanging out. And he is also very good with kitties so cats are a-ok!
Champ has one habit that we are working on. It is the favorite habit of a lot of Labs. :-) Counter surfing. Oh yes, if Champ thinks there is something yummy on the counter that he can get to, he will jump up and look. He is being corrected for this, but his new owners will want to correct him if they catch him and also keep the counters clear of food.
Champ is a really nice boy. He will be a wonderful family dog and will bring years of joy to his new owners. He will do best in a home where he will get plenty of nice exercise, beach time, park time, and attention. He will do fine with or without another friendly canine companion and is a nice choice for families with children although it's always important to remember any Labrador can knock a toddler over!
Champ is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccines.
Riley 2 adopted!
is a beautiful stocky English (or Bench Bred) purebred AKC registered 7 year old neutered Labrador of outstanding temperament. It is hard to find a dog this beautiful but who also is this nice and so good with all other dogs. This dog and toddler friendly Lab is incredibly sweet and
couldn't be more handsome if he tried. He is laid back but also has
lots of spunk. He's mellow in the house
and happy to be out walking!
This beautiful and gentle
boy came into rescue because his owner was forced to sell their home and will
be down-sizing to an apartment that doesn't take dogs. Riley used to
live with two other furry siblings, so another furry friend that isn't
overly rambunctious would be nice for him.
living in a foster home with two 6 year old labby brothers as well as
twin toddlers that are 2 1/2. He couldn't be better or more gentle
with all of them. When Riley met his Labby foster brothers, he had a
wagging tail and they are already best buddies. With the twins, they
hug him, kiss him, lay on him and tuck him "nite nite" by kissing him
and covering him with a blanket. Riley accepts all of this with a calm
demeanor and kisses them back.
At the moment Riley is a bit on the heavy
side weighing around 90 pounds but has already started losing weight
with a sensible diet and mild exercise. He should lose just a few more
help him be at his very best! Moderate exercise and less treats are
the trick! Riley
is very playful and loves to play with the other dogs he is fostered with. He will love trips to the dog park, dog beach or other fun outings and he is a medium energy dog so he'll need his exercise, but he is a very mellow easy boy.
Riley is an absolute gentleman in the house and is completely potty
trained. He is completely trustworthy indoors. He is very mellow inside but always gets that excited lab wiggle
when you come home or get ready for a walk - we've seen all four paws
come off the floor lately! If
you are looking for a love bug that is gentle with toddlers, is not hyper or high energy, and is just an easy boy and a lover, Riley may be
Simba, also known as "Papa" is a stunning white purebred English (or Bench Bred) stocky Labrador Male. He is 6 years old and of outstanding temperament. He is a beautiful white bear cub and is very close to pure perfection. This absolutely gorgeous male came to us when his family was no longer able to care for him due to unexpected problems outside their control. They very much want a special loving family to adopt this boy.
Simba was and is a very loved dog and it shows. He is wonderful with all other dogs and his best friends are a cat and a Yorkie! He would love a home with another critter companion or would do fine as your one and only love. Simba is a big cuddler It is one of his favorite things. He loves to be with his people and is a joy to have around. Simba is a gentleman in the house and totally trustworthy. He is housebroken and a very good boy who knows all of his basic command. He's good on the leash and is a lovely dog who wants to please.
Simba travels nicely in the car and settles down quickly. He loves daily outings with his family. And he adores children so he is a good choice for a family with kids. He likes being part of a family. Simba hasn't had much experience swimming. We think some trips to dog beach would be nice for him to see if he would like the water. And he may do well in a pool once he learns about it.
Simba would do best in a home where he will get lots of attention. He would love children or another friendly canine companion to share time with. He was raised with the black female Lab in his pictures so he is used to having a friend. Simba is a wonderful medium sized Lab - a great size - and he is of medium energy. He is not a high strung dog, but an easy boy to be with. He is a wonderful choice for most families.
Simba is neutered, up to date on shots, and microchipped.
Orion is a darling 14 week (3 1/2 months) old Labrador mix puppy. He is very Labby looking with a little white star on his chest, hence the name "Orion"! This little guy is the sweetest boy and loves all other dogs and even kitties! He is very social and happy and the other dogs seem to really like having him around.
Orion came to us from a high kill Los Angeles County shelter and we are so happy to have him out and safe! Young puppies have a good chance of getting seriously sick at the shelter so we are thrilled to have gotten him out right away.
This little guy is basically potty trained and is a very eager to please little man. He is smart and has excellent temperament and will do very well when he is old enough for his first puppy obedience class. Orion is a youngster so he will do best in a home that is puppy proofed with things like remotes, cell phones, sunglasses and wallets put away while he is learning what is and isn't his toy to play with. He will do best with someone who is home much of the time for the next couple of months as he grows and get used to his new home. Orion will do great with another friendly young companion to keep him company and he is a great choice for families with cats also.
Orion has had his first shots and will need another booster set in 2 weeks. He is microchipped as well.
Meet Cooper the wonderlab! Are you looking for the cutest all time purebred male Labrador? Because Cooper sure fits the bill. This adorable boy is about 2 years old and is the happiest most darling guy. Cooper is the perfect conformation for a Lab. He is beautifully bred and is at exactly the right size and weight at 75 lbs. He has a handsome yellow coat and soft eyes and a wonderful disposition.
Cooper is great with other dogs and loves his foster Labby brother and sister. He's great on the leash and in the house and what's also really cool is that Cooper is great with kitties as well! Cooper is a relatively athletic dog of medium energy who will do best with good daily exercise and lost of fun things to do such as dog beach, hikes and beach trips. He's a great dog to take along to do things and is a good boy in the car on trips. Cooper is doing great with the older children he is fostered with and may do well with toddlers, but we are always concerned about toddlers as most labs can knock a toddler over so that needs to be considered.
Cooper knows his basic commands and is obedient. He also knows "shake" as you can see in the photo below. He wants to please his owner and tries hard to gain favor. He loves attention and loves to give kisses. He likes to be by your side and is definitely a dog that wants to be with his people.
Cooper has one special skill we are not so fond of. He is able to jump a 5 foot fence. Generally he will jump the fence and come around and lay on the front porch, however this is not really that safe. We have had to keep Cooper in the house when no one is around as he cannot be left in his foster yard unattended. So Cooper will need a home with a fence at least 7 feet high and secure or a home where he will never be left alone in the back yard. He is also a good candidate for someone living in a condo as he is such a good boy in the house and there would be no fence to jump.
Cooper is a goof with a great sense of humor. He's a smiler and he makes you smile too. He's a typical Labrador in all the right ways with excellent temperament and lots of endearing qualities.
Cooper is neutered, up to date on his shots and microchipped.
Meet Boone! Boone is a truly wonderful purebred chocolate male Labrador. And believe us, they don't come any better than this boy. Boone is mellow, easy going, friendly to all, and just about the more gorgeous Lab out there. Boone is 4 years old and about 75 lbs of pure chocolate love.
Boone came to us from a high kill LA County shelter and we couldn't be happier to have him out of there and safely in his foster home.
Boone is a very good boy. He loves to be with his people and is eager to please. He gets along wonderfully with the 3 other Labs he is fostered with. He is a nicely submissive boy who shares his space well with the other dogs and who enjoys their company. Boone is not destructive in the house. He is a good boy in the car and makes a nice driving companion. He is a medium energy boy who would like a few good outings a week to the beach or hiking and a nice walk every day.
He will do well with another friendly dog to keep company with since he is doing so well with other dogs now. Because he is a low key boy, Boone is a nice choice for families with kids also. He may be ok with cats, but he has not been tested so we cannot be sure.
Boone would like a home where he will not be left alone for super long hot days by himself in a yard. He is a people dog and likes to be in the house. He would love his new family to do fun things with him like go to the beach and throw the ball and basically make him a true member of the family.
Boone is up to date on his vaccines, neutered and microchipped.
Meet Artist! The most beautiful darling female Labby puppy ever. Artist is just 11 weeks old and couldn't be sweeter. She is a slight Lab mix (maybe with pointer?) But looks very close to purebred except for her little darling paintbrush tail with the white at the tip and a little white on her chest and paw. Just adorable. They just do not come cuter than little little love bug.
Artist is completely housebroken now and is doing so well in her foster home. She is having so much fun with her foster Labby brothers and sisters and they are teaching her the way of the world.
Artist has the most lovely temperament. She is very social, outgoing, and happy. She has the temperament we love so much in our Labradors and will grown into a fine canine companion. Simply put, Artist is an absolutely darling, cuddly female Labby girl ready to give you her love.
Artist has had her first shots and has been wormed and thoroughly checked out by our vet. She has also been
microchipped. She is a healthy little cub!
Artist was abandoned at the shelter which is a horrible place for little puppies due to the health risk. We took her out immediately to avoid having her exposed to any health issues. Thankfully we were able to do that and keep this baby happy and healthy!
a puppy is a grand undertaking for any family. You should be a family
that has at least one person home during the day for the first couple
of months and you should be willing to housebreak, train, and work with
a little Labrador. You will need a crate, lots of appropriate chew
toys, lots of patience, and lots of time.
Emmit is an adorable yellow male Labrador of one year. He weighs about 60 lbs and is all love.
Emmit is a very playful, happy pup who loves playing with other dogs, but he is toy possessive of his toys with other dogs so we prefer to place him as an only dog. He will still do great with visiting canine friends so long as toys are put away. But Emmit cannot be trusted to share toys with other dogs ever. He is NEVER toy possessive with humans or children. Humans can take anything from his mouth with no problem. This is only a concern with other dogs and only involves toy.
Emmit is currently in a training program. He walks beautifully on the leash and is otherwise perfect. However he is being trained not to be to possessive with toys around other dogs and is doing great. But we still think placing him without another dog would just make things easier all around. And we still believe that his new owner should never have toys around with other dogs no matter what. Emmit is great with his food and you can take anything out of his mouth without a problem. He has no food possessive issues.
Emmit is wonderful with children - especially toddlers. He is an excellent candidate for a family with children. He is gentle with little ones and won't knock them over. He is a very gentle dog that is very cuddly and loving with all people. Emmit has a lot of energy and needs good exercise every day. He would love a home where he will go on nice long walks, or be a jogging partner and have lots of trips to the beach and park.
Emmit doesn't like to go into the pool though. He may do fine at the ocean, but he will not go into a swimming pool for some reason. He also gets nervous if his people go into the pool so we prefer to place him in a home without a swimming pool. Emmit loves to please and walks beautifully on the leash. He knows all of his commands and is totally housebroken. He is also not destructive in the house. Emmit loves toys more than anything. When he has a toy he likes, he will play by himself and keep himself entertained for hours!
He is a good boy in the car and rides nicely. He is trustworthy when left in the car for short errands (windows open of course!) Emmit is a wonderful dog for a family. He is a very good boy and is so loving. He thinks he is a lap dog. He adores all people and wants to be with his people. If you are looking for a very loving family dog with lots of energy who will love you endlessly, Emmit may be for you.
Emmit is healthy, up to date on his shots, neutered and microchipped.
Awe this is the one! Meet Henry, an absolutely darling AKC registered purebred Labrador Retriever male. They don't come cuter, and they certainly do not come sweeter than this love bug of a Lab who's all about wiggling, wagging, and giving love. Henry is a YOUNG 8 years old and is everything you could ever want in a Labrador.
Henry came to us from a high kill Los Angeles County Shelter were he was in danger mainly for 3 reasons. First, he is black. Black dogs simply have the hardest time of getting adopted. It's a real shame when you consider that there is no dog more beautiful than the purebred black Labrador Retriever. Second, Henry was suffering from a skin infection which needed to be treated. He's been vetted, the infection is minor, and it's not a big deal. But in a shelter, every little thing can mean the difference between life and death. Third, Henry is 8 years old and not a 1 year old youngster. Many families at the shelter look for the younger dogs which is a shame because over 1/2 of the younger dogs end up getting returned by those same families when they realize the amount of work a young dog takes.
As soon as we saw Henry we knew he was coming home with us. His sweetness, cheeriness, and perfect Labrador temperament sealed his fate and he was ours. Once Henry was in our hands he was whisked to the vet for a thorough check up and to have a few areas of skin treated for a minor infection. After a nice medicated bath, he was on his way to his foster home with several other foster Labs. Because we were able to contact Henry's original owners who owned him since 6 weeks of age, we were able to obtain Henry's AKC papers. Sadly his family lost their home and was forced to turn Henry into the shelter. Henry's registered name is Sir Henry Rosevelt which is quite a fancy name for such a wiggly Labby boy.
Henry is a wonderful family dog. He is perfect with other dogs and a very mellow guy. He is a friend to all and is very gentle even with children. He is housebroken and non-destructive - not a barker or a digger - and a gentleman in the home.
Henry especially likes another Lab he is fostered with named Boone who is also available for adoption. Boone likes to carry toys around in his mouth and Henry likes to follow Boone around while he is doing this. It's very, very cute.
Henry originally lived in a home with a cat, so he is cat friendly although meeting a new cat may be a little challenging. We do think he will do fine in a home with cats once he meets a new kitty and they make friends.
Henry is a very young and healthy 8. He is sound with good joints and is in excellent health. Henry is also just a tiny bit chunky and should lose about 5 lbs to be perfect. He weighs close to 90 and would be better off at 80-85 lbs. Henry enjoys his walks and more than anything, Henry loves to go swimming. He will swim in the pool but prefers to enter via pool steps and not jump in. He also loves the lake and loves hiking trails.
Henry will do best in a home where he will be part of the family and get nice daily walks. He would love another friendly doggie companion but would do fine without one as well. We would love it if Henry didn't need to spend long days all alone so maybe another dog would be nice if his new family works long hours.
He will do great with gentle children who will treat him gently and love on him. He would also love a family to take him to dog beach now and then and if you have a pool, Henry says that's just fine with him too! This is a special dog with so much love to give. His health, temperament, and personality make him very close to perfect for most families. And if you are looking for a best friend, well, you've found one right here.
Henry is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Truman is a beautiful black purebred 2 year old Labrador. He is young, healthy, playful, and a nice medium sized lab looking for a
home to call his own. Truman has a nice thick black coat that with the
proper diet will shine like only the black Lab can. This sweet boy came from a high kill shelter where he
was found as a stray. He is extremely loving and just wonderful to be around.
Truman can be afraid of intact male dogs but he is otherwise nice with other dogs and even seems to be good with cats. He is slightly undersocialized but such a sweet heart and with just a little time will be a wonderful dog. He likes other dogs and will go into the playbow to show he likes them.
Truman is housebroken, uses the doggie door and is crate
trained. He likes his crate and will go in with no coaxing. He will do best with a nice obedience class to help acclimate him into his new home and Truman will need to continue working on his leash manners. He has great potential to be an outstanding family dog.
Truman will do best with an active adult
family and even with older children as he may be too young for toddlers. He would make a great jogging partner or companion for
hikes and is the kind of dog everyone wants to be their best friend. Truman loves the tennis ball and hanging out in the yard with her person. He rides nicely in the car and is a perfect gentleman - especially with a window seat - so he would make a great road companion
too. If you are looking for a sweet, beautiful purebred black male Lab who will love you back forever, Truman is the one for you.
Truman is neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped and wormed.
Do you need anything carried? Because Sam is more than happy to carry anything you like in his mouth! I mean really, is there anything more adorable that a Labrador Retriever with a toy in their mouth? Sam is a beautifully bred, purebred male Labrador Retriever. He is yellow and is on the medium/smaller side at just 66 lbs. Sam has beautiful conformation and a nice blocky head. He's a very handsome Labrador.
Sam is approximately 3-4 years of age and is a happy, wiggly lover of a Lab who pretty much loves everyone and everything (except maybe not so much kitties!) Sam came to us from a Los Angeles County shelter where he was picked up as a stray. His owner was found but they didn't want him anymore if you can imagine that, so they declined to come and pick him up. Needless to say, we scooped Sam up the first chance we had and we feel so lucky to have this wonderful boy with us.
Sam is a lovely dog. He is not destructive, nor a digger or barker. He is also 100% housebroken and has a lovely temperament. Sam is friendly and eager to please. He knows his basic commands (sit, stay, etc.) and is relatively good on the leash though he can pull a bit at times.
Sam loves toys as you can see in his photos. And he REALLY loves Tennis Balls. They are his favorite. He loves to retrieve (as he well should!), and will retriever for as long as you will continue throwing the ball for him. Sam also enjoys romping around the back yard with his foster brother (a pug) and sister (a Lab) and will play with his toys on his own. Sam is lovely in the car and is very calm. He is also calm in the house and mannerly. Sam's original family had little children so Sam is used to little kids and does quite well with them.
Sam will do best in an active home that will make him a true part of the family. Lots of park and beach trips, kids to play with, and even another friendly canine companion would be lovely. Sam is a medium energy dog who will need nice daily exercise and will want to hang out with his family while they watch TV or gather around the table.
Sam is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Rover is a stunningly bred purebred black male Labrador Retriever of about 2-3 years. This boy is bred to the exact standard a Lab should be and has excellent conformation. In terms of looks, you will have trouble finding a more beautiful dog. Rover is a darling boy. He is friendly, playful, loves to retrieve, and is always happy. He has lots of energy and loves to run and play. He loves toys and is just great fun to be with.
Rover came to us after a full month of incarceration at the city animal shelter. This is another example of what we call "black dog syndrome". Black dogs have a much, much harder time getting adopted from the shelters. Besides the fact that black dogs have a harder time being adopted, it is also true that black dogs are not able to be seen as well in their kennels causing people to walk by them not even noticing them. In this case a gorgeous dog of excellent breeding was just not noticed.
Rover was a shelter staff favorite. Most shelters euthanize dogs in a short time if they are not adopted. Rover was so loved by the staff the he was kept alive for about 4 times longer than most dogs. Once we were alerted to him, we went in a got him right away.
Rover is a wonderul boy. He is a good boy in the house, housebroken and non-destructive. He wants to please and loves to be with his people. His shiny black coat and big smile make it hard for his foster to keep from constantly hugging him! Rover has a lot of energy and will do best in a home where he will get lots of daily exercise. He loves to run on the beach and retrieve and would be an excellent hiking and jogging partner. Because he's so good in the car, you can take him on lots of fun trips. He would love to be your buddy and sidekick.
Rover is very good with other dogs. He is slightly undersocialized, but doing very, very well and learning his doggie manners. He is doing great with his foster siblings and has made many friends. Rover will do great in a home with an active owner or family. He will do fine with older children, but may be too much for tiny toddlers who he could knock over. He would be fine as an only dog or with another playful friendly companion to spend his days with. His new family should plan on providing exercise every day for Rover. He is a young athletic boy and is very calm and good so long as he gets a good walk every single day. If he doesn't get enough exercise, he gets ansy.
Rover has thus far done better on leash than off leash. He seems to still be looking for his home so until he knows he is your dog he should be on leash at all times unless in a fenced secure dog park or beach far away from the main road. Once he knows he's your baby, he should do fine off leash. Rover sleeps on his bed next to his foster mom's bed. Occasionally she invites him up with her which he loves but he does not get up on the bed unless he is invited because he is a good boy.
Rover is a healthy gorgeous boy. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, and microchipped. All he needs now is a family to call his own.
is a darling 8 month old Fox Red Yellow Labby male. This boy is
about as cute as they get. He has the dopiest face and expression and
is all about the love. Koda is a young boy who just wants to
have fun! He LOVES to play with other dogs and wrestle. He is happy and
wiggly and all out adorable. He has excellent temperament and loves to please.
One of his favorite things to do is swim in the pool and play with his friends. He is amazing with all other dogs and has a LOT of friends. He is the kind of dog you can always take to doggie beach or dog park and know he will be a good boy and a friend to all. We don't know how he will do with kitties so we prefer not to place him with them.
wants to please. He knows sit and is learning his other commands. He
will do so great with a nice puppy obedience class to get him well on his way to
solid canine citizenship. This would be great fun for Koda and his new family.
Koda loves people and loves to give
kisses. He loves children but he could be too much for little children
since he's active and could knock them over. You can easily take his
toys and food away. But Koda is a puppy and he can be playfully mouthy
with little ones, so older children would be best. He is gentle and sweet and has wonderful temperament. He's on the mellower side for a puppy and has a nice calmness about him. He settles beautifully in the house and will grow up to be a calm, mellow dog.
will do best in a home where he will get continued training and lots of
exercise, trips to the dog park and dog beach, and lots of walks. Since
he is a puppy he should be taken to a nice obedience class. His
new owners will need to puppy proof, with things like
sunglasses, remotes, and cell phones out of reach. A few simple things like putting small interesting items away will prevent young dogs from getting into trouble. Koda is not at all a destructive dog and is lovely to have around. He will do great in a home with another playful, friendly canine companion and will do fine with kids.
Koda came to us with his sister and littermate Patsy who was already adopted. Koda is a healthy boy who is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Tara is a beautiful white purebred English (or bench bred) Lab of 3 years. She's a beautifully bred Lab with a nice stocky conformation and a perfect blocky head.
Tara is currently a little chunky! She needs to lose about 15 lbs. Nice moderate exercise and good food will remedy this and until the weight is lost, Tara shouldn't overdo it with exercise. It's always good for a chubby Lab to lose a few lbs before doing too much exercise as the weight is hard on their joints. Until she slims down a bit, there is just a little more of Tara to love!
Tara is an extremely beautiful Labrador. We seldom see Labs this gorgeous. And she is a lover too. She loves to be close to where her people are and is a wonderful faithful companion. Tara is a playful sweet girl. She is wonderful with the older children she is fostered with. She could be a little much for toddlers since she is a wiggler and could knock a tiny tot over.
Tara is very submissive with people and a real cudler and lover. She is good with other dogs too. She really loves to give kisses! She is doing great in her foster home with 2 other Labs. She takes correction well and really wants to please. She loves to eat so her new family will want to be good about giving her only the recommended amount of food and limiting treats.
Tara is completely housebroken and not destructive in the house. This pretty girl is just perfect in so many ways. All she needs is the right home to shower her with love and kisses. Tara is a healthy girl and is spayed. She is up to date on her vaccines and microchipped.
Can you say GENTLE, LOVING, MELLOW, SWEET????? This dog has it all. He is an exceptional boy. Jax is a beautiful shiny purebred black male of 1 year. He's so healthy and shiny and gorgeous! He is probably full grown at about 75 lbs of pure beauty. Jax looks like those painting of champion Labs you see with big Mallards in their mouths. He is so stunning.
Jax may only be a year old, but he is a very calm, mellow boy and is very gentle - even with little children. Jax is great with other dogs. He is also playful and will go into the playbow when he wants to play. He's very submissive with other dogs and if they give him a hard time, he turns away and make a sad face. He's so sweet. Jax is also very submissive with people. He is an obedient boy who only wants to please. He loves to be pet and lay his head in your lap. He also give nice kisses. Not lots of them and not wet - just nice soft short kisses.
Jax has no toy or food possessive issues. He is VERY gentle with taking treats and could take a treat easily from a baby. You can remove anything from his mouth without a problem. Jax is pretty good on the leash too. He doesn't pull and is a good boy. He rides wonderfully in the car and will just lay down and gaze out the window while you drive. He isn't a barker or digger, but he does like the tennis ball sometimes!
Jax had to get his ears cleaned and he sat nicely while his foster cleaned both ears. He accepts attention nicely and you can touch him everywhere without difficulty. Jax is a pretty special dog. He's just a great boy with such wonderful temperament. He will be a wonderful family dog or even a therapy dog. Even though Jax is mellow, he is young so he will need a home where he will get lots of nice walks, hikes, park trips, beach trips and things Labs love to do.
Jax is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines and ready for his new forever home.
Gus is a beautiful "English" or Bench Bred style white male Lab. He is a big gorgeous marshmallow! Gus is 3 years old and is a little chubby at about 100 lbs. He needs to loose quite a bit of weight as he would do best at 85 lbs. That's a lot of chunk for a Labrador and all this extra weight is hard on Gus's joints so when he overdoes it he sometimes limps. The vet checked Gus out and feels that once the weight is off, the limping will subside. So Gus should not overdo it and should get moderate exercise to lose weight. One the weight is off, he can do much more.
Gus is a wiggly, happy Lab that loves everyone and everything. He's a strong boy who needs a little training. He tends to pull on the leash and does best with a pinch (or prong) collar as he is very strong. But he is learning his manners nicely and will do great with just a little work. Gus is especially wonderful with children and toddlers. He loves kids and is very gentle with them.
Gus is also great with other dogs he meets, but he gets very excited when he sees another dog at first and will pull you to get to greet the dog. We are working on this so Gus can make calmer introductions. Once he meets a dog, all he wants to do is smile and wiggle. But he must continue learning that he can't pull hard just because he wants to go do something.
Gus would do best in a family who is committed to his weight loss and gentle daily exercise as he loses excess fat. He should overdo it but just like a person, he should build up his exercise slowly while reducing calories. Gus is a great all around dog. He has a lot of energy and will do best in a home with plenty of park trips, walks, ball tossing, loving, cuddling and continued training. But as previously mentioned, he will need gentle moderate exercise to lose some weight before overdoing it! He will do just fine with another nice playful and friendly canine companion or alone.
We do not know how Gus will do with cats, but he did meet some rabbits and was a little too interested for our taste, so he may not do great with cats.
Gus is a beautiful dog with excellent temperament, but he is definitely looking for a home that will do a little training work with him to help him be just a little more well mannered. The payoff will be worth it and this dog is really something. He will need more work to be better on the leash. It's hard not to fall in love with Gus. He's like a big stuffed white bear cub.
Scarlet is a darling petite gorgeous purebred female Labrador of 1 year. She is so pretty with the shiniest deepest black coat and she is small at just 60 lbs. She's a great size!
Scarlet knows her basic commands: sit, shake and is learning "wave"! She wants nothing more to please and loves to learn! She is completely housebroken and crate trained. She stays quietly in her crate to sleep and is a good girl in the crate when she must be left alone for a little while. She's not destructive or a chewer either and is wonderful in the house. Scarlet is a curious girl who loves to follow you around and be by your side watching what you are doing. She very much wants to be with her people. She loves going to the dog park where she plays with everyone. She is very friendly with all dogs both large and small and is currently fostered with a little pug male named DaVinci!
She loves people more than anything. She adores belly rubs and scratches and just being near you. Scarlet has great fun with toys! She will even play with her toys by herself and keep herself occupied for a long time. She is gentle and obedient and aims to please an she becomes quite the little ham for a treat. Scarlet is good with children, but she tends to jump. She is learning not to jump and that will be under control soon with repeated correction, however little toddlers may find her too much so probably best to place her with older children unless her new owner is very savvy about keeping up with teaching her not to jump. Once she understands that, she will do find with little ones.
Although Scarlet adores all other dogs, we do not know how she will do with kitties so we prefer to place her in a home without them. Scarlet is a young active lover. She will do best in a home where she will get plenty of park time and exercise. She would do great with another playful friendly companion too.
Scarlet is healthy, spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped!
Patsy is a darling petite 8 month old yellow female Labrador with a pretty pale coat and a sweet face. At just 8 months, this little love is playful and just wants to have fun!
Patsy loves to play with other dogs and would love a home where she will go to the dog park and on beach outings with her new family. We do not know how Patsy will do with cats so we prefer not to place her in a home with them.
Patsy will need a nice puppy obedience class to help her be the best pup she can be. Patsy will do best in a home where her new family has the patience and dedication to continue working with her on her training and where she will get lots of exercise since she is still so young. Patsy is sweet and loving and LOVES people. She loves to give kisses and snuggle. Because she is a playful puppy she may be too much for toddlers but would do fine with older children. She would also do great with another playful friendly doggie companion.
Patsy came to us from a high kill shelter with her litter mate bother Neil (also on this page). They are currently fostered together but will do just fine split up into different homes. Or they can be adopted together.
Patsy is spayed, healthy, up to date on her shots and microchipped!
Gentle Ben adopted!
Oh boy. Prepared to totally fall in love. Gentle Ben is a most beautiful lover of a purebred Lab we've seen. You cannot meet this gorgeous HUNK and walk away. He is that darling. He is a 5 year old purebred Lab with a heart of gold and a sweet personality.
Gentle Ben is a gentle giant. He's a big boy. He is 116 lbs of pure gentle love. He is a beautiful rich black boy with a big block head and the most mellow temperament. He is named for the story of Gentle Ben, an Alaskan Bear so big no one would go near him except a young boy who became his best friend. Gentle Ben was big, but he was the most gentle bear.
Gentle Ben's owners turned him into the shelter because they didn't want him anymore. We just happened to be there the day he came in and we were amazed. We took him out right away. We don't know what his name was before, but we knew his new name had to say something about how wonderful he is. Gentle Ben is a great dog. He is wonderful with all other dogs and all people. He's a submissive boy who is just happy, wiggly and loving all the time.
Gentle Ben knows his basic commands "sit", "down", and "shake". He only wants to please and make his people happy. He pulls a bit on the leash and does best with a pinch collar. On a pinch collar he walks beautifully. He really loves his walks! He is a medium energy lab who will do best in a home with moderate daily exercise and lots of love. He would be happy with or without another friendly canine companion and will do fine with children, though he is probably too large for toddlers and may knock them over. We don't know how Gentle Ben will do with cats. He hasn't met any yet, so we would prefer not to place him in a home with kitties since we cannot predict how that will go.
This beautiful purebred shiny boy is a wonderful Labrador that will bring so much joy to his new owner. Who ever adopts this boy is truly lucky and will be getting the best dog. Gentle Ben is a healthy boy. He is neutered, up to date on his shots, and microchipped.
Melody is a beautiful, elegant yellow Labby female of about 3 years. She's a very pale yellow girl and is a big girl at close to 95 lbs. She's absolutely gorgeous. And is such a loving gentle girl. We think she is a slight mix but is very Labby.
Melody is very sweet and gentle. And she is a easy going dog. She takes things in stride and in unaffected by loud noises or other disturbances. She's just an cruiser of a girl. Melody is very good with other dogs and is submissive and is going wonderfully with her foster Labby brother Bob Marley, but we do not know how she would do with kitties.
Melody loves people. She especially seems to love men and clings to her foster daddy and lays at his feet. She loves to be stroked and kissed and enjoys nothing more that human attention yet she is also an independent dog and does fine on her own. Melody is a great family dog and will do well with children. She is a gentle, obedient girl who wants to please. Melody does well on the leash and doesn't pull very hard. She knows sit and is learning her other commands.
Melody is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Sweet Chelsea adopted!
Chelsea is a darling purebred yellow female Labrador. She is the litter mate and friend of Gentle Ben! While he was dumped covered in grease and grime as if his favorite spot was under an old car....Chelsea was clean and fat and had nails growing in all directions and lick granulomas on her paws from never being walked and having painful feet like walking on stilts.
Since then all that has changed..from their very first day in rescue all their needs have been taken care of and they are so loving that they each went to different foster homes and fit right in.
This big beauty is 5-6 yo and does a happy dance whenever she sees the leash coming. She is a gorgeous English bench bred gal with an almost white thick coat with a big wave around the ruff that is the envy of the other labs with a thinner coat!
She is so gentle and loving with the 7 and 9 year old children and young Labrador in her foster home as well as all the people she is meeting at play dates, different houses and yards, people and vets.
Her paws are healing wonderfully! They were shaved in order to treat them and we are having her nails continually cut a little at a time. It will take time for her feet to look pretty again, but she is doing so well. Her pads were very tender at first, like walking on a baby's bottom...but she is doing better now after a few weeks.
Chelsea would adore a family to lavish her love on...she loves children and this is the kind of temperament that belongs in a house with kids and all their visiting friends. She would do fine with a friendly doggy companion to hang out with and people who will help her to work up in stamina as she looses some weight. At 104 pounds entering rescue she is well under 100 now on a grain free diet but has a way to go. Now that we have gotten to know Chelsea we think "Miss Happy" would be a perfect handle for her...and that she would enjoy teaching kindergarten!
