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). Meet Brandi, the sweetest, easiest, most affectionate dog you can imagine. She is a golden-colored lab mix (with German Shepherd, perhaps). Even the vet fell in love with her when he first met her, and would have taken her home on the spot if he could have! Brandi grew up in a loving family but had to be surrendered when her owner moved into a nursing home. She is a perfect homebody, loving nothing more than hanging out with her people, adult and children alike. But that doesn’t mean she’s lazy! Although Brandi looks a little hefty, the vet says she’s now at a perfect weight, and has given her a clean bill of health. Even though she’s nine years old and has some arthritis in her back legs, she is ready to move! Brandi loves brisk walks and will go for as long as you can go. Calm when you’re calm – active when you’re active. She doesn’t chew on anything, obeys the boundaries you set up, calmly welcomes visitors, never jumps up, hardly ever barks, and never ever shows any aggression. She would happily cuddle with you on a couch if you invite her, although she’s been trained not to come up on couches on her own initiative. While thrilled to meet up with all kinds of people at home or on walks, she doesn't extend the same affection towards others of her own kind. But really, if you are looking for a calm but ready companion who will relish your affection without demanding your attention, what more could you ask for? If you have any questions about Brandi, please contact Lisa, her foster mom, at lisahawkins410@outlook.com.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      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!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). AVAILABLE SOON Meet Moose, a 5 year old 110 pound bundle of chocolate love. Moose was rescued from a shelter after his owner surrendered him owing to his very long work hours. Moose is a wonderful sweet dog, but one who needs a family committed to continue his training to minimize his alert barking and to relax when meeting strangers, two and four legged. Moose loves the outdoors and would make a wonderful companion for an outdoorsy family who loves to hike and explore. Moose is currently living with two easy going dogs who are helping him learn to relax and teaching him to play but he really loves his people the most and would do best in a home where he can be included in the daily activities. Owing to his large size and his affinity for barking, he'd probably be better off in a home without small kids. Besides he'd rather be the center of attention. Might he be the perfect addition to your home?

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Warrington, PA
      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.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Warrington, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Hi, I’m Macy! I’m a black lab mix who is 13 years young. I am about 65 pounds, spayed, and am up-to-date on all my shots. I was taken to a shelter by my previous owners who could no longer care for me but, lucky for me, Brookline rescued me. I’ve been with my foster family for about two months now. I had to gain a few pounds and get treatment for my allergies. The good news is that I’ve gained a few pounds and my allergies are under control now but I will need to be on an antihistamine indefinitely to manage them. Also, I’m taking a regular omega oil supplement which has helped my skin and fur so I should stay on that as well. I feel much better now and, while I love it here, I’ll be ready to find my forever home soon. I currently live with three dogs and we get along well. I am a girl that likes to be in charge and every once in a while I will grumble at them but they catch my drift and give me my space. It’s good to be queen! People have told me I’ve very cute, friendly and a bit spunky too. Also, no one can believe I’m 13 years old as I don’t look or act my age. I do settle down easily except in the car as I get excited to go places. I love food, going on walks, hanging out with people, getting attention and taking naps. My foster mom says I’m pretty easy-going and would do well in a variety of homes but an ideal family would give me lots of attention, take me on regular walks and outings, and let me on the furniture as I like dog beds but really prefer the couch! If you want to learn more about me or would like to be my new family, contact otisa99@hotmail.com.
