More About Labrador Retriever Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). They call me Zena or Zee-Zee. I was found wandering the streets of Philly, and ended up in a very noisy, crowded shelter, where the staff fell in love with me! Then the best thing ever happened - I found a wonderful foster home and am now ready for my forever home! I am a 5-7 year old black/brown lab mix with white spotty feet and a very cute and curly tail. I have big brown eyes that will seek your soul and make you fall into them. I LOVE everybody from big to little peeps. I am calm, gentle, low maintenance and 75 lbs of love. I make friends with other dogs easily and if they don’t care for me, I am quite ok with that - I will just move on. I do enjoy chasing those squirrels I see outside though. I guess that’s the Lab in me! I love, love, love my food and will eat most anything, I have been known to trash pick but now that I know peeps love me and are feeding me well every day, I have almost stopped this habit. I absolutely adore being outdoors and would spend all my days and sometimes nights out there if I could. I like to find a nice little patch of ground, nest it around a little and just lay in it until I am called in for more important tasks (like eating). I walk well on a leash, sniff at the usual things and pull occasionally, but I will literally leap up and down if you get the leash out to walk me – that’s how much I love it! I will miss you if you go out, but I will not whine and complain, I will watch the house and sleep on the couch to keep it warm for you until you return. I am completely house trained, no crate needed! Car rides are my thing, I could just sit and hang out with you in the car and tag along for any ride. I do have Lyme’s disease and have been getting medication for that (and am much better), along with some ear meds which need to continue to be monitored – well you can’t expect me to be perfect! My foster says I am the most easy-going, laid back dog ever, and would fit in just about any kind of family. Could I join yours???

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). I'm a good ol' 3 yr. old handsome southern boy that was found as a stray down south and brought up here. I am 92 pounds of pure muscle and love! Everyone says I’m very handsome – but that just makes me blush. But I will tell you that I would rather live with people any day than on the streets! I LOVE to curl up in bed with my people, LOVE car rides, love to play fetch, and just love hanging out and being loved. My tail is ALWAYS wagging! I don’t have a mean bone in my body, and I rarely bark (Foster Mom said she’s only heard me bark 4 times!). I do love to counter surf (I’m a Lab, after all!) and will follow you everywhere (FM keeps saying I’m a “Velcro” dog), but do NOT have any separation anxiety. However, I would LOVE it if my forever family was around a lot – that would be AWESOME! Another thing everyone loves about me is that I am completely housebroken and am fine with free roam when my people are gone. I also get along great with other dogs. I love children too, but I am a big boy, so I probably should be with older children (10+ yrs.) as I might accidentally knock them down, even though I don’t mean to. I also love other dogs! I used to live with one who was a bit bossy, and made me a bit nervous, so I’d prefer a more laid back canine companion. But I’m also fine being the center of attention!!!! I should mention there are a few things I don’t like . . . crates, thunder, lightning and really loud noises. They make me hide under the bed! So the only little sort of embarrassing problem that I need to share is that just like babies and toddlers, I sometimes leak a bit. I only do it when I’m super excited or when I’m sleeping, so at nighttime I wear a doggy diaper. I did go to a specialist in NYC who did surgery on me, and it stopped most of my leaking, but I still do when I’m asleep. So my nighttime “diaper” (or even just puppy pads) are an easy fix! So enough about that! I am such a sweet, friendly, outgoing southern gentleman that everyone who meets me falls instantly in love. I’d love to charm you too!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Buddy is a handsome male yellow lab/boxer mix, with really big soulful brown eyes that you could just fall into. He is neutered, approximately 11 years old, weighs 75 pounds, and is in excellent health. He is housetrained and has had free run of our house when we were home and when we have been away. He is presently living with 2 other labs, and a cat. He never even notices the cat. He likes everybody, and everybody likes him! Buddy sleeps on a dog bed in our bedroom at night. He is very gentle, and takes a treat from your hand easily. Buddy loves to be wherever we are, inside or out. He is calm, loving, and a real sweetheart! When outside he likes to lay in the sun. He loves to have his belly rubbed and neck scratched. He is a lab, so he loves all the attention he can get! Buddy is up to date on all of his vaccinations. He has arthritis in his hind legs, so he leans on his hip when he sits. He usually lays down if he is not standing. We have been giving him Rimadyl for the arthritis, which allows him to keep up with his brothers. Buddy likes to run out in the fenced in back yard, then come in and just be with his people. He’ll hop right up and follow you whenever you leave the room, and really wants to be with his alpha. He does pull at bit on the leash, and needs a little work in that area. He likes his fur brothers, but I do not know if he has to have them around all the time. While eager to leave the house and hop into the car, he doesn’t care for riding in the car and will whine and pace in the back seat the entire trip. Buddy would make an ideal companion for an older person, but he will be happy wherever he is with love and attention.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Jovie is a three-year old purebred dainty teacup of a black Labrador. She is feisty and funny and full of life. She adores children, most other dogs (she can be a dominant wee thing), and cats. She loves nothing more than to go on long, long walks or “sniffs” and to cuddle on the couch or in bed with her favorite humans. And you would never know that she is blind and mostly deaf from birth! She has no limitations in terms of her mobility – she quickly “maps” new areas by touch and scent. She can scale steep stairs with no problem and happily uses steps to make her way into her Mom’s bed. She has no trouble finding her way around a fenced yard or around a pool, letting her nose lead her. Nothing stops this little spitfire! Jovie does struggle with separation anxiety, which is understandable given her loss of two senses and her history of being shuffled around between families. But the good news is that this is easily alleviated as long as she has a canine companion! Despite Jovie’s sad start in life (the breeder was going to euthanize this puppy who couldn’t hunt) and subsequent movement from home to home, it is clear that she has always been kindly treated. She never reacts to a human touch, even surprise touch, with anything other than enthusiastic wagging, wriggling, and kisses. This dog is the love of the world and will be happiest in a busy family of adults and children and other friendly dogs for companions. Jovie would also make a wonderful companion for a family member who is homebound and would benefit from constant, affectionate companionship OR someone who is able to take her to work or work from home (where Jovie will be devotedly lying at their feet!). She would be happiest in a quiet, rural setting that provides lots of time outside in the sunshine and fresh air, as well as freedom from loud noises such as traffic, which she seems able to sense and can be disorienting for her. Jovie is up to date on all vaccinations, spayed, heartworm negative and receives daily eye drops. Her eyes will need to be monitored from time to time. Unfortunately, she is not a candidate for eye surgery. But, it will only take a few minutes with her to realize that her blindness in no way limits her ability to lead a happy, healthy Labrador's life - the last one to realize she can’t see is Jovie, as she’s never experienced the world differently. Please consider taking this lovely, sweet dog into your hearts and home. You will be forever grateful that you did.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Hello. My name is Gracie! I am a 2-3 year old female black lab. I weigh about 65 pounds. I am spayed and up to date on my vaccinations. Since my foster parents picked me up and brought me to their home, I have been working on my confidence. I am still shy at first, but once I warm up, I will be right by your side all day and night. The beginning of my life was spent in the south. Then, I moved to the city, but that was too loud for me. So I came to live with my foster parents in a more rural area. I love having a yard to run in and two resident buddies (labs) that I have with me all the time. I like to exercise some, but I settle very easily. I think my perfect forever home would have a yard, another dog as my buddy, and a mom with children. Dad's are ok, but I will take time to get used to him. Take a look at my pics. I will be your best friend forever!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). My name is Lex and I am a 7 year old huggable, loveable yellow Lab. Foster Mom says I am as soft as a bunny rabbit. I am good with cats, I don't chase them at all, in fact the one cat I live with here keeps coming up to me, rubbing herself on me. What's that about? I lived the first 7 years of my life with 3 other dogs. Since joining the Brookline family I live with 2 humans, 2 houndies and 1 very intelligent cat. We all get along just fine. When I first came into Brookline I was diagnosed with Lyme disease but I am done my treatment and feeling just fine. My foster parents decided to put me on a Cosaquin regiment, since I am a bit rickety. The vet thinks I have arthritis and that at one time my back leg had surgery. I do love going for walks with my foster family and I have good manners on the leash. I love to have your attention, as much as you want to give and if not, I'll chill out wherever. Hanging out in the same room is good. I thrive on having canine companionship as well. I get anxiety if left completely alone. I have been house trained for years, but I do require staying out longer than my foster brother and sister. I am too easily distracted from the business at hand. My foster parents are amazed at how quickly I adapted to their wacky home, and how happy and content I am.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Have you ever heard the expression “killed with kindness”? Well, that kinda describes my life before coming to Brookline. You see, my owners just loved dogs and cats, and wanted to save them all. So that’s what they kept doing – until at one point they were up to 10 dogs and a harem of cats! So me, being the smart fella that I am, took advantage of this and chowed down on anything I could get my paws on. And with that many critters, there was always a lot of food around. Of course I didn’t limit myself to critter food – I also liked to help myself to people food! And I was just the right height to reach the food on the counter! Meanwhile, my owners were having problems getting around, so I didn’t get much exercise either. Well, needless to say, by the time the nice lady from Brookline came to evaluate me, I was pretty tubby. The other problem was that I had developed diabetes and, over time, ended up losing my sight. Oh my! But remember I told you that I was a smart fella? Well that blindness doesn’t stop me – I find my way around just fine, thank you. So I came into foster care, and my wonderful foster Mom put me on a strict diet to help me shed those extra pounds, and now look at how svelte I am! Hard to believe the before and after pictures, huh? Maybe they would like me to model for one of those weight loss ads! Well, here I am – looking like a million dollars (at least that’s what people tell me because remember, I can’t see) – and no one seems to want to adopt me. And my foster Mom says I’m one of the most charming gentlemen she has ever met! She says I have so much “personality” (whatever THAT means). Guess she likes it when I crawl up onto her lap when she sits on the sofa and turn right over for belly rubs! She calls me a “belly rub-aholic”. If you’re worried about my diabetes, I just need a little ol’ shot twice a day. It doesn’t cost much and it doesn’t bother me at all! Honest – I promise I will give you tons of licks and tail wags and loving if you would just consider making me part of your family. .I LOVE to be with my people, and obviously I get along well with dogs and cats, so what’s stoppin’ ya?

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet sweet Maisie! Maisie is a 4 year old, 45lb Lab mix with a nice personality and a love of people! Maisie is a gentle soul, who likes to be around her foster family. Just a glance in her direction sets her tail wagging! She never strays too far, always making sure that she can see where they are. However, she is not clingy, and does give them their space. She just enjoys the comfort of knowing where they are (especially her foster mom!) Maisie gets along well with kids and other dogs. Her foster family has a 9 month old energetic puppy, who wants to play with her all the time. Maisie is playful, but lets the puppy know when she's had enough. Maisie is gentle and quiet when appropriate, but has a little spunk when it comes time to play with dogs! Maisie is house broken, knows all the basic commands, and will do anything for a treat (or a belly rub!) She is fine in the crate when her foster family goes out, but has been left with free roam of the house, with no issues. At night, she likes to sleep at the bottom of the bed, but will be happy anywhere in the room. Aside from being the wonderful dog that she is, Maisie does have one flaw! Maisie was diagnosed with idiosyncratic epilepsy, which means she has random, occasional seizures. The seizures last about 5 minutes long, where you can see her arms and legs jerking rapidly. It does take her about 20-30 minutes to fully recover, and gain control of her muscles. Therefore, she stays on the rug or blanket until she is able to get up and go. At first, it looks like a drunk dog trying to walk a straight line, but soon, she is back to her normal, lovable self - like nothing ever happened! Maisie is under the care of our local veterinarian, and her records can easily be transferred to another vet. She is on a daily dose of anti-seizure medicine, which has kept the seizures to a minimum. At this point, she has a seizure once a month or less. So if you want a lovable, gentle companion, and can provide her with love and her daily medications, she will be your friend for life!!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever

      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Sandy is an 11-year-old female yellow lab. Her coat is long and fluffy, from nose to tail! Sandy weighs just over 80lbs. She has cataracts which make her more or less totally blind, and a large fatty lump on her right front leg. Both have been checked by the vet and do not require any treatment. Neither of these things bother her, and she just goes about her business and takes life in her stride. When she bumps into a wall, she just redirects herself and tries again. If she keeps bumping into them, for example if she is in a bit of an enclosed corner, she just settles down and sleeps! One obvious change in Sandy's behavior due to her blindness is her nervousness around other dogs. Sandy always gets very excited when she smells another dog, but when they actually get really close she doesn't like them near her face, so she is best as an only dog. Also she does not cope with flights of stairs - she can handle one or two, but not lots in a row. Cats do not seem to trouble her at all. Sandy loves to go out and walk around. She especially likes open fields and spaces where she will not keep running into things. She does not enjoy automotive travel, but will get in and out of the van under her own steam, and puts up with the travel when she has to. In the house Sandy is the perfect resident. She never scrounges food, counter surfs, gets up on furniture or makes a mess. She regularly goes 11 hours overnight without needing to go outside. She will sleep anywhere, although she avoids doggie beds and opts for a rug or blanket - something nice and stable. She seeks out human company, but is also perfectly calm and comfortable when left alone. Sandy's list of favorite things would include visitors, belly rubs, walks, peanut butter, and sleeping. She does well with all people, and there are some people that she is especially pleased to meet. She is very peaceful, resilient, and calm, and would be happiest with a family that are not rushing about too much, enjoy gentle walking but are not avid hikers, and can spend some time each day petting her! For the right family Sandy will be a true delight, being a model of contentment and serenity.
