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: German Shepherd Dog-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Do you want a snuggle-bug? Would you like a walking partner? Do you need some practice throwing a ball? Then Brandi is the girl for you! Brandi is a golden-colored lab mix who has had a series of homes through no fault of her own. She was adopted from a rescue when she was about 6 yrs. old, where she had been brought in as a stray. She and her adopter had a very special bond, and spent countless hours enjoying each other’s company. Unfortunately, he had to go into a nursing home, which left Brandi, once again, homeless. Her foster family adored her and described her as the perfect homebody, loving nothing more than to hang out with her people, both big and small. But then some major health issues within the family developed, and they didn’t have the time to spend with her, so she was, yet again, homeless. Poor Brandi has been hanging out in a kennel, waiting for her forever home! Brandi is about 9 years young, very healthy for her age with just a touch of arthritis, and loves, loves, loves her people! She loves to go for walks, play ball and then end the day snuggling in your lap. She is fine with free roam, greets visitors very politely, and rarely barks. She is truly the perfect companion. Her only requirement is that she be an ONLY dog. She is not fond of other dogs, and much prefers being the queen of the castle. And after all she has been through, she is allowed to be a bit demanding!!! So if you want a sweet, affectionate, easygoing companion, Brandi is waiting for you! If you have any questions about Brandi, please contact Sue at susan.stauffer@comcast.net.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Hi, It’s me, Moose, looking for my special “Fur Ever” home! Here are some fun facts about Moose: Did you know that Moose can generally be found all across the northern forest of North America, Europe and Russia? Did you know that the Moose is the largest extant species in the deer family? I didn’t know that until just now!! Now think about this, who wouldn’t want their very own Moose!! So, look no further guys, it’s me, “Moose” named appropriately…just look at my color and my size. Here’s a little about my story, it’s pretty simple, I was rescued from a shelter after my owner surrendered me due to his very long work hours. Now let me share a few things about me that my foster family and I want you to know! Now pay attention, these are pretty special things: I am 5 years old. I weight 110 lbs. Don’t let that scare you, we moose are big, but this here Moose loves to cuddle with my humans!! I am a very sweet and might I add a very handsome guy. I love being outdoors doing all kinds of activities with my family, hiking & exploring are on the top of my list. I have 2 very easy going fur sisters that I get along great with! These are all the wonderful things about me!! Now let’s talk about the few things I need to work on. The only thing my foster mom thinks I need touch work on is my alert barking. Ok I admit it, I do bark when company comes, but hey I want to keep my pack safe, that’s my job right, remember I am the “Moose”. I am sure my foster mom can give you pointers to help me! She also says I need to relax a little more when meeting new people too, but I guess the alert barking and the nervousness go hand in hand. I am working hard on both issues, I promise!! My foster mom feels I would do best in a family without young children, due to my size. I really am a people dog, I promise I would love you to death with cuddles and kisses! Ok moose can be mushy too! So think about it, you could be the first person in your neighborhood with your very own MOOSE! Please consider me!!

      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). If you’re looking for a ball chasing, tail wagging bundle of energy, then I’m your girl! I am a 10 month old youngster with a zest for life! Everyone says I am quite a “looker”, especially with my yellow eyes, and Dad describes me as quite an athlete - which I think is a compliment. I know one thing - I love being with my people – large or small. If you promise to let me run and play ball lots during the day, I promise to snuggle up with you at night. I am very smart and very food motivated (what Lab isn’t?), so very trainable. I do need to learn a few manners – like not jumping up on people – but who can blame me? I just want to be sure you SEE me! I’m a bit unsure around other dogs. I have only met them at the dog park, but I am far more focused on playing ball than socializing with them, so I pretty much ignore them. I’m not sure how I would feel about living with another dog. I am reliably trained on an invisible fence – see how smart I am? However, I’m not much for leash walking, so you’ll need to work with me on that. I am also crate trained, which is probably a good thing, as I might be tempted to help myself to a few things around the house while you are gone. I am a bit grabby with treats and between that and my jumping, I would probably not be good with young kids. I would probably knock them over on my way to retrieve my ball! If you promise you’ll give me lots of exercise every day and teach me a few basic manners, then I promise to reward you by letting you rub my belly at night! Let me know if you have room in your home and your heart for me. . .

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Wise beyond his years is the best way to describe this sweet old gentleman! 10 year old Blaze has always lived with a menagerie of animals, and has gotten along well with them all. But his favorite critters are the human variety. He is such a smart fella that he soon learned to use his cuteness to get what all Labs want – FOOD! Unfortunately, he got to be a very BIG fella and developed diabetes, which ultimately led to blindness. But that hasn’t stopped Blaze. He continues to blaze his way wherever he wants to go and especially into human hearts. This big hunk of love has now lost 40 pounds and is not only handsome, but has much more of a spring in his step. He loves, loves, loves to go for leisurely strolls where he will be happy to “smell the roses” all day long. However, he is equally as happy curling up by your side and getting lots of belly rubs. Blaze is an easygoing, resilient, smart and very cool Dude (as his foster Mom likes to describe him). He would probably do best in a calmer home and due to his blindness, would probably not be a good fit for young children. Blaze is looking for a wonderful place to rest his head during these Golden years. Could that be your place?

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Layla is a one year old, approximately 80lb female spayed black lab. She has recently started her training and is making wonderful progress, but will need a family committed to continued training. Layla loves to play fetch and would play all day if you let her. She also loves to play tug. Sometimes it’s with an appropriate toy, like a tug rope; sometimes it’s with an inappropriate tug toy, like her leash! She is learning and making progress, but when overstimulated, she will revert back to her “challenging” behaviors like jumping, mouthing and barking. Layla is currently residing with a foster fur-sister, but she did not have a lot of exposure to other dogs prior to coming into foster care. She has learned how to play and romp and wrestle with another submissive dog. She has learned so much! Layla is still easily excited and would do best in a calm home. She is a champion cuddler and when Layla is ready to relax, she will snuggle on the couch with her people. Layla is looking for a calm, structured home with lots of love, exercise and training for her fur-ever home. Could that be your home?!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). So if you were to take one look at me, what word would come to mind? Besides, cute, obviously … I’ll help you out with a few that I have heard people say about me. Curious is one. Affectionate and loyal are other ones. But my favorite thing anyone has ever said about me? That I am smart little guy, willing to learn and easy to train. Which makes perfect sense, honestly, because I’d do anything for a treat. I have not yet hit my first birthday (I’m about 7 months old) and I am already housebroken, have already learned all the basic commands, and I walk on a leash like a champ. And how many pups my age know how to behave in a crate? I do. I even wait to take my food until you tell me to—although, I have to admit, that was pretty hard to learn. My previous owners let me meet lots of dogs in my early life, and I’ve gotten along well with all of them. Someone mentioned something about a cat to me, but to be honest, I am not sure what that is. Are they like kids? Because I have lived with older human children my whole life. I’ve done well cohabiting with teenagers, so I wonder if I would do well with cats? Maybe those are different things, though. Like I said, just haven’t met a cat yet. As you can probably tell from looking at me, I am an active and spunky little guy who just loves to go for a long walk. Just one thing, though: I like to carry my tug toy with me on long walks, because it makes me feel secure. But just between you and me, I also bring it along so that we can squeeze in a game of tug or two along the way, because that is my absolute favorite game to play. I like most games where I can spend time with my humans, but tug is the best game of all. My foster mom says I would do well in a home with an active human (or family) that is willing to take charge of things. See, I’m still pretty young, and I have a lot to learn, so I need someone who will continue to work with me to be the best dog I can be. I am extremely inquisitive and want to explore as much as I can. But I still might need just a little bit of help controlling my energy level. And in return for you showing me the way, I promise to snuggle up nice and tight next to you on the couch and to hang out with you in the kitchen (you know, just in case you accidentally drop a scrap or two). Because of my exuberance foster mom says she'd rather I go to a home with older kids (12 and up). What do you think? Could I be your furever home?

      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). I started my journey to my forever home as a stray, taken to a shelter with a huge open sore that no one had bothered treating. Thankfully, those nice people from Brookline Lab Rescue took me right in, and got me all fixed up! I was so happy to be out of pain for the first time in a long time, and to actually lay my head on a nice soft doggie bed and get lots of loving! They call me a “senior” which I think means I get lots of special privileges – things like long walks, belly rubs and lots of cuddling. They think I am about 10 years young, and I say age is all in your mind. Just show me the leash, and I can kick up my heels with the best of them! Taking walks is on the top of my list of fun things to do – well, right behind snuggling and being loved. I do have some arthritis and some sensitivity in my back end (where that old sore used to be), and I do grumble if you touch me back there. I also have some allergies that are easily helped by a daily dose of Benadryl. I think I’m pretty low maintenance for an older guy! I never really had a chance to learn things like retrieving balls and playing with tug toys. My humans keep trying to tell me it is fun, but I’d rather just hang out. Seems like way too much work for me! And I really prefer being “king of the hill” – I have waited a long time to find a home where I was loved and taken care of – I’m not particularly anxious to share that with a fur mate. I think I deserve to be the “top dog” at this point in my life! So if you are looking for a mellow, laid-back mature gentleman to share your life with, I’m your guy!

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.
