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!

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.

      Buddy

      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-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???

      Sandy

      verified

      rescue
      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.
