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.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Layla is a beautiful, one year old, 75lb female black lab. She is spayed and up to date on all of her vaccinations. She did not have the best start to her young life. She spent 20+ hours a day in a crate in her first home, but that all changed when she came into rescue and foster care. She started her training with her foster family and has made wonderful progress, but will need a family committed to continuing her training. Layla loves to play fetch and would play all day if you let her. She also loves to play tug and will give you a great arm workout if you play with her! Layla is a young and active dog and would do best with a family that likes to be active and to exercise her daily. She loves running around the backyard with her foster family, and her ideal furever family would have a place for her to run too. Layla is currently residing with a foster fur-sister, but she did not have any exposure to other dogs prior to coming into foster care. She would probably do best as an only dog in the home. She promises to keep you entertained with her antics and enthusiasm! Layla has learned so much in her time in foster care. She is still easily excited and would do best in a calmer home. Layla is working on appropriate greetings, aka not jumping. She has made progress, but she does have a knockdown factor. She is a champion cuddler and when Layla is ready to relax, she will snuggle on the couch with her people. Layla is looking for a calm, structured home with lots of love, exercise and training for her fur-ever home. Could that be with you?! If you have any questions about Layla, please contact autumndynell@gmail.com. Please copy and paste this link to read more about Layla on her blog: http://brooklinelabrescue.org/blog/?page_id=12302.

      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.

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Wise beyond his years is the best way to describe this sweet old gentleman! 10 year old Blaze has always lived with a menagerie of animals, and has gotten along well with them all. But his favorite critters are the human variety. He is such a smart fella that he soon learned to use his cuteness to get what all Labs want – FOOD! Unfortunately, he got to be a very BIG fella and developed diabetes, which ultimately led to blindness. But that hasn’t stopped Blaze. He continues to blaze his way wherever he wants to go and especially into human hearts. This big hunk of love has now lost 40 pounds and is not only handsome, but has much more of a spring in his step. He loves, loves, loves to go for leisurely strolls where he will be happy to “smell the roses” all day long. However, he is equally as happy curling up by your side and getting lots of belly rubs. Blaze is an easygoing, resilient, smart and very cool Dude (as his foster Mom likes to describe him). He would probably do best in a calmer home and due to his blindness, would probably not be a good fit for young children. Blaze is looking for a wonderful place to rest his head during these Golden years. Could that be your place?
