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: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). My name is Carson and I am a 2-year-old neutered black male lab mix. I came to Brookline from the SPCA. Living on the streets was a hard life. I was very underweight and my fur was in bad shape. Brookline came to my rescue and placed me in a foster home that could get me back to health. My ears and skin had fungus infections, which have been treated and look good. I still need to gain more weight but I have been putting it on steadily. I was 73 lbs. when I came and look to be about 80 lbs. now. I am up to date on all my shots and have been micro chipped. Since coming into foster care, I have learned to retrieve a tennis ball. My foster mom makes me sit and wait for the ok before I can chase the ball which I have been doing very well with given my young age. Retrieving is my favorite thing to do other than eating. I do like to have a ball to play with in the house, but it has to be a durable one so I can have hours of chewing pleasure. I can also say that I am housebroken, crate trained, ride well in the car and affectionate. My ideal family would have to have time to teach me even more fun behaviors since I am still a puppy at heart. I would also like to continue retrieving my tennis ball so that is a must have. I am good with large mature dogs that aren’t going to try to take my toys and boss me around. Young kids running around, yelling and playing ball bring out too much of my inner puppy. This is not the best thing when you out weigh these guys and think you should play with them like they are another dog. At the end of the day I do love a good dog bed to lay on and hang with the gang.

      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). So I really need a fenced in yard. 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???

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). If you’re looking for a fella who loves kids, dogs and cuddling, then I’m your man! I spent my life with one family, but when they had to move into an apartment, I couldn’t go along. So Brookline Lab Rescue stepped in, and I have been living in this wonderful foster home with a 7 yr. old human brother and 2 fur sisters. What a hoot! They all love to run and play, and I spend most of my time getting tackled by someone! My Mom says I am such a gentleman – I walk nicely on the leash, and after some walking and play time, I’m happy to chill on a pile of stuffed toys! That is unless there is some food within reach – then I’m happy to help myself. Mom never said that pumpkin pie on the table was for someone else – silly Mom! I am a bit weak in the hind quarters, so steps are not my favorite thing. I can do a few, but not a whole flight, so I need to find a home where I don’t need to do a ton of steps. I also used to have some bare spots on my body, but good food has made them disappear. Mom has some before and after pictures that are incredible! I did get lyme disease, but have just finished my regimen of pills, and so I’m cleared and good to go! If you want a cuddle bug who loves everyone he meets, I would love to be YOUR cuddle bug!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Meet Manny! Manny is a 10+ year young , 85 lb neutered male yellow lab who is always up for a good time. He is a happy go-lucky guy who just wants to be by your side or at your feet doing whatever it is you're doing. He is happy to go for a walk, have a fetch in the park or yard and he LOVES car rides! He like to put his head out the window and let his ears and lips blow in the wind. Manny does not have a mean bone in his body and is happy to greet anyone including other dogs and cats. He is simply happy to be. And while he loves other dogs and gets along with anyone perfectly, his favorite place to be is with his people. A constant fixture in the hustle and bustle of the family room and kitchen, Manny makes himself at home in the middle of it all, typical lab style. He likes to lay in the kitchen while we're cooking and at the kids' feet under the kitchen table when they're doing homework. He follows us from room to room and will curl himself into the smallest ball in the tightest spaces just so he can stay by you. He is a Velcro lab for sure. Manny is very agile for his age, probably given his lean build. He can jump into the car easily and slides out with help mostly because jumping would be jarring on his joints and we don't want him getting hurt. He is able to climb stairs with ease. A recent removal of some lumps on his side and under his forearms also ensures that he will move with ease and not be limited because of fatty masses (all of which were benign). His dental cleaning revealed beautiful, healthy (all things considered) teeth and his breath improved tremendously! He can bite kibble and eat crunchy treats but he is hesitant maybe due to sensitivity so I always add warm water and let the kibble absorb it. He has a hearty appetite and loves breakfast and dinner time but he would happily share his meal with his buddies rather than keep it all for himself. If a pushy friend comes by for a taste, Manny moves out of the way and happily gives up his bowl so a hungry pal must be watched or Manny will go without. He loves earning treats and is a super fan of Frosty Paws. Manny is currently taking fish oil and osteo-biflex daily to keep him spry. He enjoys daily walks on a leash and happily goes along with the pace you set or with the pace another dog with a stronger personality sets. Manny serves as a balanced tone setter for dogs that can be distracted by other dogs. He displays ambivalence and confidence and diffuses any tension. He is a great help. His hearing is good and that more than makes up for his eyesight which at times seems a little blurry. He seems to see well close up but relies on his hearing to catch up to his people if out for a walk in the yard and he gets separated. When he hears his name being called, he gallops to his people and exhibits such pure joy, it's as though he's been separated for hours rather than minutes! Some floors can seem blurry like shiny wood or marble. He hesitates on them but holds his legs steady and continues on the uncertain ground and moves along with gentle coaxing. The best home for Manny is a busy one or at least one where he will get to be with his people a lot. He would not do well as a single dog in a quiet home where his people are gone all day. Dogs, cats, kids, activities all make Manny super happy. He seems to be making up for lost time and will doing anything to please you. He loves love and belly rubs and ear scratches and big fluffy orthopedic beds. He wants to be in the middle of it all and will soundly sleep and relax right at your side. He loves fetching and is improving every day so tennis balls are a must. He doesn't chew or get on furniture or jump up or counter surf. He's a true blue loyal forever friend who deserves only the best. He's perfect.

      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 (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.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Border Collie / Mixed (short coat). female I am as sweet, as a sweet 7-year-old girl can be! I am 65-pound, calm, and affectionate black lab mix. I am spayed and UTD on shots. At my age I come complete with manners, such as how to “sit”, “down”, “come”, “wait”, “leave it”, and “drop”. When I play ball I always drop it for you to throw again! I love to show my belly for rubs and I am friendly. As long as you have hands to pet me I will be your best girlfriend. I like little kiddos, and grownups! I have lived with other dogs, but I really like a nice mature male. I will go anywhere with you and sleep like a baby in the car. My foster Mom says I need a little work on my leash manners, since I pull to try to get to other dogs. I sleep the night through on either a dog bed or the couch. I have free run for the 8 ½ hour work day. I do have a dog walker at lunch time so I get my exercise. I grew up in a family with three kids ages 5, 6, and 7, as well as a male lab. I was briefly in foster care with Brookline because my family was moving and they couldn’t take me with them. I was adopted out to a human Mom and Dad, two kids and a male Lab brother. I was returned after a year due to chronic ear infections that need to be managed by a specialty vet for the rest of my life. Currently, my skin and ears are treated daily with medication and I am a model patient. Since the cause of my allergies is not known yet, I started a food trial to see if certain foods could be the cause. Afterwards, I need testing for environmental allergies and any maintenance treatment recommended by the vet to keep my allergies under control. Please consider picking me to be your new best girlfriend! You could really make a difference in my life and I know I will return the favor with all the unconditional love you can handle.

      Location: USA
      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? Please let the nice people at Brookline Lab Rescue know if you would like more information about me.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Female Female
      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.
