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.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Eddy is available! Eddy should be good with a wide variety of families, but I feel will do best with a household that is relatively calm (though he would probably love some kids to play with) and has some experience with labs. He is really sweet and friendly, and should thrive with consistent handling, exercise and affection. Eddy was dog tested (graduate level!) at camp McGee last weekend, and did well overall once he settled in and got used to having 3 other dogs around. So no concerns with him going into a house with a resident dog, but probably best if the current dog is on the mellow/submissive side, or older. And it is crucial that the new family understands that they have to take it slow introducing them. Not cat tested yet. He does not get bothered at all by cars or trucks passing on walks, even the garbage truck banging right next to us barely got a glance.

      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-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet sweet Maisie! Maisie is a 4 year old, 45lb Lab mix with a nice personality and a love of people! Maisie is a gentle soul, who likes to be around her foster family. Just a glance in her direction sets her tail wagging! She never strays too far, always making sure that she can see where they are. However, she is not clingy, and does give them their space. She just enjoys the comfort of knowing where they are (especially her foster mom!) Maisie gets along well with kids and other dogs. Her foster family has a 9 month old energetic puppy, who wants to play with her all the time. Maisie is playful, but lets the puppy know when she's had enough. Maisie is gentle and quiet when appropriate, but has a little spunk when it comes time to play with dogs! Maisie is house broken, knows all the basic commands, and will do anything for a treat (or a belly rub!) She is fine in the crate when her foster family goes out, but has been left with free roam of the house, with no issues. At night, she likes to sleep at the bottom of the bed, but will be happy anywhere in the room. Aside from being the wonderful dog that she is, Maisie does have one flaw! Maisie was diagnosed with idiosyncratic epilepsy, which means she has random, occasional seizures. The seizures last about 5 minutes long, where you can see her arms and legs jerking rapidly. It does take her about 20-30 minutes to fully recover, and gain control of her muscles. Therefore, she stays on the rug or blanket until she is able to get up and go. At first, it looks like a drunk dog trying to walk a straight line, but soon, she is back to her normal, lovable self - like nothing ever happened! Maisie is under the care of our local veterinarian, and her records can easily be transferred to another vet. She is on a daily dose of anti-seizure medicine, which has kept the seizures to a minimum. At this point, she has a seizure once a month or less. So if you want a lovable, gentle companion, and can provide her with love and her daily medications, she will be your friend for life!! If you have any questions, or want more information about sweet little Maisie, please email us at......

      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.
