    rescue
    Breed: Labrador Retriever
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Senior
    Location: Temple, GA
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Bertha is available through our Senior program, which requires a fenced in yard 4 foot or taller. She is a very active senior, who would benefit from a training program, either 14 day or 28 day. She does fine with all dogs. ​Hey my name is Bertha! Life is Labs rescued me from a shelter and I was WAY over weight and unhealthy. Life is Labs took care of me and now that I have lost the weight I needed to and had my surgery to get rid of my tumors, I am ready to find my forever home! They named me Bertha for Big Bertha. But since I have lost a lot of weight, I’m not big anymore! I am getting heathier more and more every day! I am very sweet and loving! I get along with everybody and all my doggy friends! Overall, I am laid back and I just go with the flow. I will be the perfect dog for more of a relaxed type family. Please come and see me! I am ready to find my forever home! I will greet you with love and kisses. Love, Bertha ADOPT WITH PEACE OF MIND! Most of our adoptable dogs are trained, socialized and ready to love your family. They have lived at our home-based boarding, training and rescue facility where we have worked to fully assess them so that we can help you make a perfect match with your new companion. For over 15 years, we have worked with owners and dogs with training and rehabilitation. We bring these skills to our rescue program to help you and/or your family find the perfect new dog that fits your lifestyle, activity level, home environment and personality. We pride ourselves on working closely with you to not only find the perfect dog, but to provide service and care for you and your new companion after adoption. The majority of our dogs receive formal training and we do several obedience lessons prior to adoption so that you and your new dog can learn to work together and, equally or more importantly, bond prior to going home. You can read more about our adoption process below this description of this incredible, adoptable dog! We also off adoptions for senior and special needs dogs, small breed dogs that do not require training for adoption (but that can be trained at the adopter's request), and our new HomeBuddies program, which is FREE and helps harder to place dogs find loving homes and includes training. Our HomeBuddies adoptions will require strict screening and matching. These adoptions focus on dogs that are well-behaved and loving, but may have specific issues that have not responded to training. Some examples include socialization issues with other dogs or not being able to be around small children (not aggressive, but reactive to things like grabbing or quick jerky movements). These are loving dogs that deserve a chance at a forever home, but that will require special homes (i.e. no children, no other dogs, etc.). They each do include our 14 Day Off Leash Express program and the only expense is the cost of a remote collar that comes with the program (approx $200). ADOPTION FEES: Adoption with 28 Day OFF LEASH ULTIMATE TRAINING program $937.50 (dogs that will complete our full service training program normally priced $1749; includes 20% off boarding for life, private lessons for life, 24/7 support, remote training collar) Adoption with 14 Day OFF LEASH EXPRESS program $699.00 (dogs that will complete our full service training program normally priced $999; includes 20% off boarding for life, private lessons for life, 24/7 support, remote training collar) Small Breed without training (dogs under 30 pounds) $350 - fenced yard required Senior or Special Needs Adoptable $200 or negotiable based on dog and home (dogs 8+ yrs or dogs with special needs) Service Dog Candidates $450 (dogs leaving LILR and immediately entering service dog training; requires meeting with trainer) HOMEBUDDIES $FREE (INCLUDES our 14 day OFF LEASH EXPRESS program; difficult to place dogs that may have behavior issues that have not been responsive to training, but will still make great companions when matched with the right home; only expense is the cost of a remote training collar at $200) ***To find out which programs this dog is eligible for, please email info@lifeislabs.org as it varies with each dog, how long they've been with us and their general behavior and temperament. ALL ADOPTIONS INCLUDE: Full vaccinations, spay or neuter, parasite (fleat/tick/all worms) free, current on parasite prevention, microchipped, 20% off boarding for life at our facility. 24/7 access to us for anything you need related to your adopted dog. FULL SERVICE TRAINING PROGRAM ADOPTIONS ALSO INCLUDE: Unlimited private lessons for life and a remote collar. We do NOT do adoptions without our training program unless the dog is senior, special needs or a service dog candidate. OUR ADOPTION PROCESS 1. Complete our adoption application. It usually takes our volunteers 1-2 business days to process your adoption application. 2. Once your application is approved, set up a visit (by appointment please so that we can be available for you) to our facility to visit with the dogs that meet your preferences based on your application. You can visit more than once if you need more time to help choose a new companion. 3. Once you select your companion, we may do a home visit. 4. Complete an adoption contract. Dogs that are not receiving formal training can go home at this time. 5. For dogs who have been trained, we typically have two-three visits/lessons, with the last being the day you take your new pup home. This timeframe and the lessons can vary by dog and adoptive individual and family. FOR ADOPTIONS RECEIVING OUR FULL SERVICE TRAINING PROGRAM: THIS IS **NOT** your typical "pet store" or group class training. The result is a dog that you can enjoy in any setting and know that it's safe and a pleasure for everyone it visits with. You will be able to run, bike, hike, camp, garden and just plain relax with a dog that isn't going to run off or cause trouble. With the exception of seniors and special needs dogs, all of our adoptables receive either our "28 Day Off Leash Ultimate" or our "14 Day Off Leash Express" training program, which is available to the general public. If you are adopting a puppy, they will go home with you and then come back around 6-8 months to complete their training. Our training program includes behavior training, socialization and obedience training. When dogs complete our program, they will walk with you both on leash and off, we have addressed any manners/behavior issues that would cause problems in their new homes and they will come when called reliably off leash. Some dogs do have lingering issues that we fully disclose -- the most common is dogs that can jump 4' fences (which is probably why they ended up in the shelter in the first place!). When you come out for lessons, our typical lessons are: 1) leash walking, 2) gate and door manners, 3) coming when called to all family members and sitting upon arrival, 4) going for a walk off-leash with family and staying safely in the general area and returning immediately when called. Your new dog is ready to go home when we've completed the lessons and both you and we are confident and comfortable with your new pup's relationship and response to you and your family. Our adoptions with full service training include a dog that is: Spayed or neutered Current on all vaccinations Clear of parasites (heartworm, flea, tick, worms, etc.) Current on all parasite prevention (heartworm and flea/tick prevention) Microchipped On a high-quality food (Merrick Whole Earth Farms) Fully assessed for temperament and behavior Crate trained Fully trained through our "28 Day Off Leash" (reg $1749) or "14 Day Off Leash Express" (reg $999) training program -- for dogs eligible for training These adoptions also include: Private lessons prior to adoption and UNLIMITED private lessons as needed once adoption is complete (for dogs that have completed training) 20% off boarding at any of our facilities for life Unlimited access to us for advice and assistance for ANYTHING you need in relationship to your adopted dog The nature of our rescue program requires that dogs are with us typically 2-3 months from the time we take them into our program. During this time, they are living in and around our home with a variety of other dogs, cats, cows, people and general activity. We are assessing them 24/7 so that we know them very well and can confidently help you make the perfect match for a new companion. And we are training them daily (once they are happy and healthy) to prepare them for adoption. Payment arrangements can be made in the form of 50% down at the time of adoption and the remaining 50% in one month from that date. We understand that some people are shocked by this adoption fee. Please understand that this is NOT about making money. We care for 40 or more dogs in our program on a daily basis. All of our dogs are here typically 2-3 or more times longer than most rescues in other programs. We feed them high quality food, administer parasite prevention and provide food, toys, bedding, crates and a staff that helps care for them while we assess their behavior and temperament and conduct training. ALL of the proceeds from our adoptions go directly back to our rescue program. NONE of the adoption fee goes to us for training or boarding. Our adoption fee was set by taking a traditional adoption fee of $250 and then adding our commercial training program at half price (687.50 -- when it was originally $1375). We originally offered the training as an option. Almost every adopter did the training. The few that didn't were calling with behavior and training issues. We felt that there is a value to our training, both to the adopter, but even more importantly to the dog. We want our dogs to be LOVED and to become INSEPARABLE members of the family. We don't want them to cause stress or frustration. So in early 2011, we decided that all of our rescues would be trained. We hope that most people can see the value in the training and we encourage you to come out to visit and see the training in action if you are a potential adopter that's skeptical or on the fence. This is not traditional sit/stay training. This is training that will give you a well-balanced dog that is a pleasure 24/7. They are not little robots and they are not 100% without fault. But when you have a dog that you can travel with, hang out with, go to the mailbox with and that your friends and family can enjoy, we know that we've done our job by matching you with a dog that's a true companion and not just a pet... For more information, please email info@lifeislabs.org. PLEASE DO NOT CALL. Email is best for initial inquiries as it is difficult for us to spend time on the phone with all the work we have to do with the dogs. Thank you!

    Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: Temple, GA
    Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Bell and Taco are available through our small dog program, which requires a fenced yard 4 foot or taller. Bell came to us from a local animal shelter with another Chihuahua named Taco that we believe to be either her son or a sibling from another litter. She is probably around 2-3 years old. She is spayed, microchipped and up to date on all shots. She is a little on the shy side, but once she gets used to the environment, she will warm up. She does well with other dogs of varying sizes. She can be playful and loving once she realizes she is in a safe place. She is a wonderful little dog. Bell and Taco need to stay together since they are a bonded pair.

    Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Senior
    Location: Kennesaw, GA
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed. YOUR ONE AND ONLY: 10 years old / Currently 33 lbs. and needs to gain some weight Mostly Mutts adoption facility is open Mon-Sat. 11-4pm. Some of us are in foster homes so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week. I’m a lover of people who seeks out attention and is very friendly and sweet! When we’re inside our home, I’ll be great company and we can lounge around or I’ll sit close to you while you work, read or watch TV. When we go out on a leash, I’ll need your help learning not to pull and with redirecting me when I see other dogs. For whatever the reason, I just don’t like other dogs and I can be very vocal about it and pull strongly on the leash. I also react fiercely to my own reflection in the glass or mirrors. So, I will want to be your only dog and likely your only pet as I don’t think I would like kitty cats either, but I’ll be worth it as I’m great company and just love people. A home with older kids is best, since my reaction to other dogs and my reflection is strong, it could scare younger kids. I have very good potty manners on the shelter schedule and am quiet in my little room too. Sadly, I wasn't kept on Heart Worm prevention in my previous home, so I'm HW positive. The good news is that I'll be treated for that in a few months and Mostly Mutts will cover the cost of that treatment with one of their vets. I hope to be with my family before treatment starts! Energy level: 4-6 in general. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, neutered and my adoption fee is $100.00.

    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: Kennesaw, GA
    Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. ROYAL THEMED DOG: 5 years old / 52 lbs. Mostly Mutts adoption facility is open Mon-Sat. 11-4pm. Some of us are in foster homes so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week. I'm a sweet and soulful kind of dog who is loved by all of the volunteers at the Mostly Mutts shelter and in my part time foster home too! Everyone says how nice I am and I really like that! My foster mom says that I'm "Awesome"! I don't even know what that means, but it sure sounds good! I know the commands ‘sit’, ‘lay down’ and ‘touch’ which is when I touch your hand with my nose. I ride well in the car and have not been destructive in my foster home at all. I have night vision loss, and sometimes it really throws me off. My foster mom will be glad to give you the details to help with my transition into a new home. Some if which is giving me some time to really get to know and trust you. If I’ve already settled into bed at nighttime, just call me to come to you so I don’t startle and growl due to my night blindness. A night light is also helpful, so I can see a little better after the sun goes down. After a recent trip to the vet, I found out that I have high blood pressure (yes, dogs can have that!). I will need to stay on my blood pressure meds and, they are working great at keeping me healthy. I’m still a normal, happy dog, but I’m not going to be a good fit for a runner or long-distance hiker. I have good potty manners and do really well on a schedule. I'm also great with the other dogs in my foster home, just feed us separately as I don’t want to share my food, and I just ignore the kitty cat. I really enjoy walks and rolling around in the grass because that just feels so nice, but please don't leave me unattended in the yard, as I can dig out or jump shorter fences! I also like kids and would be best with older kids as I am large and due to my night vision challenges. I'm afraid of thunderstorms, so I’ll want to hang out with you during storms please. Once we’re well acquainted, I’d love it if you wanted me to sleep in bed with you but if not, I’ll sleep in a doggie bed in your room. Energy level: 4 – 6. I'm current on vaccinations, neutered and my adoption fee is $275.00.

    Breed: Beagle
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: Temple, GA
    Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Barnie is eligible for our Small dog program, which requires a 4 foot fence or higher. If you are looking for the perfect dog...look no further! Barnie is a lover, cuddler and all around great dog! Hey my name Barnie! Oh, please pet me! Scratch me right there! Now can we cuddle, please? I love attention and Life is Labs made me realize that. They rescued me when I was in very bad shape! I had absolutely no hair on my rear end and covered with sores because I was infested with fleas. But they took care of me and after wearing this plastic cone around my neck I slowly grew my hair back, got rid of all my sores, and became pain free. The only place I have left on my body from my previous condition is on my tail. I have a little bald spot that never grew hair back but trust me, I am as happy as I can be! Any chance I can get, I will cuddle right next to you all night long! I love to be right beside you and laying on a big comfy bed. I get along with everybody and all the other dogs. I can get excited at times and when I do you will hear my traditional hound howl/bark. Please come and visit me! I get very excited when someone comes to see me. I’m ready to find my forever home! Please come take me home. I will love you unconditionally! Love, Barnie ADOPT WITH PEACE OF MIND! Most of our adoptable dogs are trained, socialized and ready to love your family. They have lived at our home-based boarding, training and rescue facility where we have worked to fully assess them so that we can help you make a perfect match with your new companion. For over 15 years, we have worked with owners and dogs with training and rehabilitation. We bring these skills to our rescue program to help you and/or your family find the perfect new dog that fits your lifestyle, activity level, home environment and personality. We pride ourselves on working closely with you to not only find the perfect dog, but to provide service and care for you and your new companion after adoption. The majority of our dogs receive formal training and we do several obedience lessons prior to adoption so that you and your new dog can learn to work together and, equally or more importantly, bond prior to going home. You can read more about our adoption process below this description of this incredible, adoptable dog! We also off adoptions for senior and special needs dogs, small breed dogs that do not require training for adoption (but that can be trained at the adopter's request), and our new HomeBuddies program, which is FREE and helps harder to place dogs find loving homes and includes training. Our HomeBuddies adoptions will require strict screening and matching. These adoptions focus on dogs that are well-behaved and loving, but may have specific issues that have not responded to training. Some examples include socialization issues with other dogs or not being able to be around small children (not aggressive, but reactive to things like grabbing or quick jerky movements). These are loving dogs that deserve a chance at a forever home, but that will require special homes (i.e. no children, no other dogs, etc.). They each do include our 14 Day Off Leash Express program and the only expense is the cost of a remote collar that comes with the program (approx $200). ADOPTION FEES: Adoption with 28 Day OFF LEASH ULTIMATE TRAINING program $937.50 (dogs that will complete our full service training program normally priced $1749; includes 20% off boarding for life, private lessons for life, 24/7 support, remote training collar) Adoption with 14 Day OFF LEASH EXPRESS program $699.00 (dogs that will complete our full service training program normally priced $999; includes 20% off boarding for life, private lessons for life, 24/7 support, remote training collar) Small Breed without training (dogs under 30 pounds) $350 - fenced yard required Senior or Special Needs Adoptable $200 or negotiable based on dog and home (dogs 8+ yrs or dogs with special needs) Service Dog Candidates $450 (dogs leaving LILR and immediately entering service dog training; requires meeting with trainer) HOMEBUDDIES $FREE (INCLUDES our 14 day OFF LEASH EXPRESS program; difficult to place dogs that may have behavior issues that have not been responsive to training, but will still make great companions when matched with the right home; only expense is the cost of a remote training collar at $200) ***To find out which programs this dog is eligible for, please email info@lifeislabs.org as it varies with each dog, how long they've been with us and their general behavior and temperament. ALL ADOPTIONS INCLUDE: Full vaccinations, spay or neuter, parasite (fleat/tick/all worms) free, current on parasite prevention, microchipped, 20% off boarding for life at our facility. 24/7 access to us for anything you need related to your adopted dog. FULL SERVICE TRAINING PROGRAM ADOPTIONS ALSO INCLUDE: Unlimited private lessons for life and a remote collar. We do NOT do adoptions without our training program unless the dog is senior, special needs or a service dog candidate. OUR ADOPTION PROCESS 1. Complete our adoption application. It usually takes our volunteers 1-2 business days to process your adoption application. 2. Once your application is approved, set up a visit (by appointment please so that we can be available for you) to our facility to visit with the dogs that meet your preferences based on your application. You can visit more than once if you need more time to help choose a new companion. 3. Once you select your companion, we may do a home visit. 4. Complete an adoption contract. Dogs that are not receiving formal training can go home at this time. 5. For dogs who have been trained, we typically have two-three visits/lessons, with the last being the day you take your new pup home. This timeframe and the lessons can vary by dog and adoptive individual and family. FOR ADOPTIONS RECEIVING OUR FULL SERVICE TRAINING PROGRAM: THIS IS **NOT** your typical "pet store" or group class training. The result is a dog that you can enjoy in any setting and know that it's safe and a pleasure for everyone it visits with. You will be able to run, bike, hike, camp, garden and just plain relax with a dog that isn't going to run off or cause trouble. With the exception of seniors and special needs dogs, all of our adoptables receive either our "28 Day Off Leash Ultimate" or our "14 Day Off Leash Express" training program, which is available to the general public. If you are adopting a puppy, they will go home with you and then come back around 6-8 months to complete their training. Our training program includes behavior training, socialization and obedience training. When dogs complete our program, they will walk with you both on leash and off, we have addressed any manners/behavior issues that would cause problems in their new homes and they will come when called reliably off leash. Some dogs do have lingering issues that we fully disclose -- the most common is dogs that can jump 4' fences (which is probably why they ended up in the shelter in the first place!). When you come out for lessons, our typical lessons are: 1) leash walking, 2) gate and door manners, 3) coming when called to all family members and sitting upon arrival, 4) going for a walk off-leash with family and staying safely in the general area and returning immediately when called. Your new dog is ready to go home when we've completed the lessons and both you and we are confident and comfortable with your new pup's relationship and response to you and your family. Our adoptions with full service training include a dog that is: Spayed or neutered Current on all vaccinations Clear of parasites (heartworm, flea, tick, worms, etc.) Current on all parasite prevention (heartworm and flea/tick prevention) Microchipped On a high-quality food (Merrick Whole Earth Farms) Fully assessed for temperament and behavior Crate trained Fully trained through our "28 Day Off Leash" (reg $1749) or "14 Day Off Leash Express" (reg $999) training program -- for dogs eligible for training These adoptions also include: Private lessons prior to adoption and UNLIMITED private lessons as needed once adoption is complete (for dogs that have completed training) 20% off boarding at any of our facilities for life Unlimited access to us for advice and assistance for ANYTHING you need in relationship to your adopted dog The nature of our rescue program requires that dogs are with us typically 2-3 months from the time we take them into our program. During this time, they are living in and around our home with a variety of other dogs, cats, cows, people and general activity. We are assessing them 24/7 so that we know them very well and can confidently help you make the perfect match for a new companion. And we are training them daily (once they are happy and healthy) to prepare them for adoption. Payment arrangements can be made in the form of 50% down at the time of adoption and the remaining 50% in one month from that date. We understand that some people are shocked by this adoption fee. Please understand that this is NOT about making money. We care for 40 or more dogs in our program on a daily basis. All of our dogs are here typically 2-3 or more times longer than most rescues in other programs. We feed them high quality food, administer parasite prevention and provide food, toys, bedding, crates and a staff that helps care for them while we assess their behavior and temperament and conduct training. ALL of the proceeds from our adoptions go directly back to our rescue program. NONE of the adoption fee goes to us for training or boarding. Our adoption fee was set by taking a traditional adoption fee of $250 and then adding our commercial training program at half price (687.50 -- when it was originally $1375). We originally offered the training as an option. Almost every adopter did the training. The few that didn't were calling with behavior and training issues. We felt that there is a value to our training, both to the adopter, but even more importantly to the dog. We want our dogs to be LOVED and to become INSEPARABLE members of the family. We don't want them to cause stress or frustration. So in early 2011, we decided that all of our rescues would be trained. We hope that most people can see the value in the training and we encourage you to come out to visit and see the training in action if you are a potential adopter that's skeptical or on the fence. This is not traditional sit/stay training. This is training that will give you a well-balanced dog that is a pleasure 24/7. They are not little robots and they are not 100% without fault. But when you have a dog that you can travel with, hang out with, go to the mailbox with and that your friends and family can enjoy, we know that we've done our job by matching you with a dog that's a true companion and not just a pet... For more information, please email info@lifeislabs.org. PLEASE DO NOT CALL. Email is best for initial inquiries as it is difficult for us to spend time on the phone with all the work we have to do with the dogs. Thank you!
