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
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Hazel is a beautiful, sweet chocolate lab who is 10 years young, spayed and up-to-date on shots. She is a friendly, affectionate, energetic and smart girl who doesn’t look or act her age. Hazel is very social and loves other dogs and people of all ages. She also loves belly rubs, ear scratches, lots of love and attention. She is not crazy about fireworks, thunderstorms, vacuums and the vet. Hazel is very strong and will pull on walks, especially to go say hi to other dogs but does much better with a harness. She loves to ride in the car and gets excited to get in the car and out of it so you have to hold her back sometimes. Hazel knows basic commands and is very food motivated so would probably pick up a few other commands or tricks quickly. Hazel would do well in a variety of homes but an ideal one would able to give her lots of attention, regular exercise and continued training. In addition, she loves other dogs so would love a home with a fenced in yard and resident dog who likes to play so they could tire each other out. She does have a strong prey drive when it comes to cats so should not be placed in a home with them. For more information on this Lab, please contact otisa99@hotmail.com.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Phoenix and Lucy here!!! We are just about to take a nap but before we do, we have an important announcement. We need a family for the holidays!! Well, forever really but we are hoping to spend the holidays with our new family. Like a family that would accidentally, intentionally drop some turkey from the dining room table. Or over there by the sink. Whichever. We aren't super fussy. We use to make babies for a breeder. Probably because we are so pretty! But maybe because we have the sweetest dispositions. Or because we're very smart. Now we are in a foster home full of people and we have learned THIS IS THE LIFE!!! We are warm, clean, well cared for, and we have discovered the coziest of places up here on this sofa!! It's a great place to snuggle in together, alone or with people!! It's just the best. Is this what we've been missing all our lives?! We are SOLD. We love being house pets. And we are fast learners, we don't potty in the house!! We have discovered toys and chasing a ball. We are very playful and spunky. We are just the happiest girls now. We are so excited for this new life we've been given!! The only part missing is YOU, our new family. We can't wait to meet you. We dream about you, are you a family of one? Two? Three? Four? Do you have kiddos? Where are you?! We love you already and we can't wait to meet you. ​ Please, please ask our foster mommy anything you want to know about us. She loves to talk about us.

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Meet Sam! He is a very adorable 70lb, 6 year old, neutered and UTD male lab mix. Due to a change in his owner’s schedule and being gone for long hours during the day, Sam is now looking for a forever family to welcome him into their heart and home (and possibly their couch because, **HELLO ** we have a snuggle monster on our hands -as his foster mom likes to call him). He is a very silly and loving dog that will make you smile every day. One of his favorite things to do is putting his paw on your knee or a small lick to your hand to remind you to give him some chest scratches! He wants to make sure he gets his loving ;) Sam is completely house and crate trained, although he is completely reliable with free roam of the house and is not crated in his foster home. This little fella is quite inquisitive, and one of his favorite things to do is scope out the back yard for any squirrels. Due to his high prey drive, it is suggested that he would do best in a home without any small critters. Sam grew up as an only dog and would be fine as an only dog, but he is currently being fostered with another male lab and loves having a friend to romp around the yard with and shares toys without issues! He does take some time to warm up to another dog, but if you’ve got some patience, Sam won’t let you down! Sam has never spent any time around children, and tends to become a little timid around sudden movements or when foster mom bangs around the kitchen too loud, so for that reason we would like to place him in a home without young children. He will alert bark when someone rings the doorbell, but once he gets a chance to meet them, he is giving little kisses and taking their pets. He is extremely people oriented, and tends to bond very quickly to his people, so even though he did fine with his owner being gone long hours during the day, we would like to see him with a family who is home more often. If you think Sam might be the right dog for you or if you have any questions, please contact kkbeach88@gmail.com For more information on this Lab, please contact info@brooklinelabrescue.org.

      Mitzy

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Sweet Disposition Despite years spent in a dark basement, sweet, petite Mitzy holds no grudges. This approximately 7 yr. old black beauty weighed in at only 36 pounds when she came into Brookline Lab Rescue, emaciated and craving human attention. She was also limping – the result of no one caring enough to have her broken leg fixed. She has thrived in foster care, loving the attention and gaining some badly needed weight. Her years of neglect are over and she is on the road to finding her forever home! Mitzy loves nothing more than to be with her humans. In fact, that is her favorite pastime – snuggling! She will never be much of a ball retriever or tug-of-war player – she’d much prefer a belly rub or going for a long walk any day. Mitzy is happiest when someone is around. She is fine with free roam when alone, but would do best in a home where she can spend as much time as possible with her people. Since no one was around to comfort her in her younger years, Mitzy is afraid of things like thunderstorms and firecrackers and vacuum cleaners, and the vet isn’t her favorite place to visit (but then how many of us like to go to the doctor?). She also had little chance to socialize with other dogs, so she really prefers being a princess. As a princess, she can tolerate older, calmer dogs, but would really rather not share the limelight if given the choice. Mitzy really wants your undivided attention! So, if you want someone who loves nothing more than the wind in her ears as you drive, who will love accompanying you on long daily walks, who enjoys being brushed and pampered, and who would love nothing more than to sleep beside you, then petite Mitzy is the dog for you!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). They used to call me Ferdinand Duke, because when I walked, I liked to stop and smell the roses. But I fooled them all, and now I’m actually jogging with my foster Mom! I love, love, love to walk. Whenever anyone mentions that word, I go and get my leash to let them know I am READY! I am also the typical Lab who loves food, so foster Mom says it’s good I’m jogging, as I need to watch my figure. I am a BIG boy, and am still working on losing a few pounds, but I say that just means there is more of me to love! And there’s nothing better than snuggling with my humans. I live with 3 young boys who think I am just a big teddy bear. I even have them trained to give me treats! And I reward them by taking them oh so gently. I also live with 2 fur brothers, and we get along famously! I noticed they kept running after this ball, and bringing it back, so after watching for a while, I decided to try it myself. It sure does tire a guy out! And then I get to do another favorite thing – take a nap! I’d probably be good in almost any kind of home except one with cats. I’m not fond of those little critters at all. I may be a bit too big for really young children, because to them I probably look like a horse! I am just a very mellow 7-8 yr. old lover who is looking for his forever home. If you're looking for a big paw to rest on your foot or a loving doggie head on the couch next to you as you watch TV, then I'm your man!
