Meet Alli! She is approximately 5 to 6 years old and weighs around 60 pounds. We were informed right after we sprung Gator from the shelter that he had come in with another dog, a yellow female. Since we try to never leave family behind, we found a foster and got Alli out too! We were also informed that when they were picked up by AC, they were caught "in the act". So, we will know very soon if Alli is expecting! Alli's foster mom reports that she is one of the sweetest and easiest dogs she has ever met! She is friendly with everyone she meets, dogs and humans alike. Alli loves her foster siblings and enjoys sleeping in bed with her foster mom. She's a great girl!

Meet Bo

Male/6 months


Single Yellow Male seeking new roommate(s). Must give ear scratches, belly rubs, peanut butter treats and play fetch. Will share with other dogs but not sure about cats. I can be left on my own in a crate, and probably out since I don’t chew or destroy things – no one has let me try that yet. But if you could stay home with me all the time – that would be awesome. I would never let you forget you are the most beautiful person ever! I wouldn’t mind having a little human or 2 to play with, especially if they like to throw balls, because I like to chase them. I do still jump up on people ‘cause I want to be as close as possible but I’m sure I can learn not to do that. I am learning to sit but sometimes I get so excited about the treat my butt doesn’t make it all the way to the floor. But enough about me – let’s talk about you! Do you love to take long walks, to throw a ball around, to just run around the yard/park? Do you like to snuggle on the couch after a long day of playing? ME TOO! Let’s meet, Let’s greet, Let’s give Finley a treat!

Meet Finley

Male/2-3 yrs


Iris is a black beauty also known as a Zen dog. Her peace and serenity create a calm environment in her foster family’s home. She is 11 years young and 55 pounds lite but don't let her years fool you. Senior dogs can be the best companions.

Miss Iris has that wizened confidence of a girl who has done it all. She doesn’t need to playing games to be content, but every so often, Iris may tease you with some puppy like behavior. Once she has your attention, she will turn away in search of a sunbeam to lie in, a lap to snuggle in, or simply a leg to lean against. Yes, Iris does know all the lab tricks to gain an extra pet or two. She is a sucker for affection. And, she will use her seasoned charms to receive all the love her human has to give.

Cats and dogs are equally on Iris’s list of friends. While playing may not be her thing, she doesn’t mind other dogs in the house. Iris also loves cats. She is always ready for some snuggles of any kind.

Iris knows all the finer points of living with a family. She is completely housebroken, does not require a crate. She knows what is hers and what is not hers. She walks gently on a leash for short distances, then she’s ready to turn around and relax at home. Iris, too, prefers few stairs and carpets to prevent slipping. These are the small requirements of a long life lived.

Iris has love in her heart to share with everyone. She recently befriended her 4-year-old neighbor girl. They are the best of friends! Iris’ enthusiasm for life at this point is to give and receive affection. She is a total love bug. While she may require shorter walks and moist meals, the love she has is unmatched and can be seen in her adoring eyes! All she wants is to brighten your day with an extra dose of labby love.

2/7 Update: Iris continues to prove Father Time wrong! She is an active, happy girl! She plays with her foster siblings. Iris is a big help around the house, following her foster mom as she folds the laundry, and finishes the chores. With a smile on her face, Iris is a cheerful member of the family. Happiness, attention, and playfulness are definitely wonderful traits to add to any family.

Meet Petra and Pedro! They are Podengo mixes and are around 22 (Petra) and 24 (Pedro) pounds. They are approximately 6 to 8 months old. These 2 little cuties were found wandering as strays in Portugal while our President Lu was vacationing there. Once she saw them, she couldn't just leave them so once they satisfy their quarantine and get all of their necessary vetting, they will be coming to the US to find their forever family! They are small but don’t seem small like small dogs. Super friendly and smart! We will NOT split them up. Petra is the red/white and Pedro is the black/white. Pedro is the more adventurous of the 2 but both are great with other dogs and very friendly with people. So far they seem very well behaved and are great car riders.

Meet Teddy! Teddy is an approximately 10- 11 months old and weighs around 60 pounds. Teddy came to us several months ago a very skinny little pup from a shelter in south Texas. When Teddy was sprung from the shelter and got to his foster home, it was discovered that Teddy had food aggression. It was also discovered that he had some aggression about water bowls as well. Teddy did not want dogs or people coming around his food or water and would growl if someone did. He also ate every meal like it was his last. We aren’t sure if Teddy didn’t regularly get food and water or maybe had a lot of competition from other dogs when these were provided.

Teddy is otherwise a GREAT dog. He is your textbook Lab in personality, loves everyone he meets, both dogs and humans. He loves attention from people, enjoys toys, bones, balls and playing fetch. He also wants to be friends and playmates with every dog he meets, but is good at reading the cues of other dogs if they aren’t up for playtime. When it’s not playtime he will happily nap at your feet or with his head in your lap. He really enjoys sleeping on the couch and in bed with you but he is a bit of a pillow hog. :)

Regardless of what a great dog Teddy is, we knew these issues with food and water bowls were very real and needed to be addressed. Teddy was enrolled in the Happy Hounds Prison Program several weeks ago and has been making remarkable progress. The Happy Hounds program takes place at The Roxbury Correctional Institute in Hagerstown, Maryland. The program is run by a wonderful trainer who has trained a small and select group of inmates to become handlers and trainers for dogs with issues, like Teddy. They have had amazing success over the last 2+ years in rehabilitating rescue dogs with behavioral issues. To date they have “paroled” over 200 dogs that have been adopted into homes, some even becoming police and working dogs. The impact this program has had on Teddy has been amazing, his issues with water are almost completely gone and his food issues improve every day.

You can read about Teddy and other dogs in the program by visiting their Facebook page or their website. Their handlers keep journals about the dogs in their care and they are posted on the website regularly. We are SO happy and thankful to Linda, the trainer of the program, and Diane the director for allowing Teddy into their program and helping him overcome his issues so he too can be "paroled" and find his forever home!

Meet Waylon! He is approximately 4-5 years old and weigh around 65 pounds but needs to gain a few pounds. Waylon came from a VERY BAD backyard breeding situation in Texas. He was one of roughly 25 dogs living on a property with chainlink runs and nothing for shade but some blue plastic barrels tossed into the runs. (See photos). Waylon has definitely lived a life of neglect. He had fleas, hair loss, horrible infected ears and eyes and isn't quite sure what being pet is all about. He however has no desire to run from you and doesn't have a mean bone in his body. As each day goes by and he feels a little better he is getting more and more curious about being in a home and following his foster mom around. He's also training her about when he needs to go out by going to the door and barking. While Waylon has had a horrible life, he will know nothing but love, regular meals and a safe place to sleep from here on out.

Male/2-3 yrs


I’m not sure why no one wants me. I’m a beautiful black 3-year-old with soulful eyes, and a story of sadness and success. My name is Willow, and it’s been an amazing journey with Lu’s Labs, they have cared for me when no one else has. They saved me from a sad life of a stray in the south and brought me into their circle of kindness. I found a home, and then I lost it, because of my fears. You see I just am not good around other dogs. They frighten me and then I bark, and I react.

My northern foster has worked hard with me. She has been caring and loving, and with the help of CBD oil, I have calmed down so much. I am so much more able to deal with the sights and sounds of other dogs. Before my foster mom worked hard with me and put me on CBD oil, I would bark and be so stressed whenever I looked out the window and saw another dog. But now I don’t do that anymore. Before, if the German Shephard was outside in the yard next door, I would run like my life depended on it, back and forth along the fence line barking my head off. But now, I just lay in a patch of sun or chill out in the shade of a tree.

I love to chase balls, and run, and once I trust you I even snuggle. But you have to earn that trust. And really you will love me, I’m great with kids, I know all my commands, I give kisses, I like puzzles, and I’ve never destroyed anything. I will take some time, but the best things in life are worth waiting for. You have to be patient with me. But foster mom says I’m well worth the wait.

For more information on my journey please go read the blog post about me on Lu's Labs here

Female/3 yrs


Wonka is a chocolate, 3 ½ year old, 72-pound package of lab enthusiasm! A wonderful companion, Wonka loves to be with his people. Long walks and play time make this bundle of love happy all day long! Bring on the tennis balls! Fetch is top of the play time games list for this sweetheart.

Easy to take for walks – just be prepared to let Wonka stop and smell the roses, and grass, and trees … there is a big world out there to explore and Wonka wants to explore it all! With an easy medium energy level, Wonka is learning to relax and enjoy his new life! An excellent co-pilot Wonka likes to join you for car rides (especially when it’s to a park for a good hike and game of fetch)!

Already set with basic commands like “sit” “drop it” and “come” this handsome chocolate chunk is off to a good start on his way to be your best friend and loyal companion! Happy to be up the bed with you at night, he will always choose time near you over crate time. With a little coaxing though he can settle in for a few hours while alone.

Wonka is a thoughtful boy who, once he gets to know you, will happily show you his tricks and bring a toy – and a wiggly butt – to you when you get home each day! He is looking for a caring home where he can be the one and only dog.

Meet Wyatt! He is 5 to 6 years old and weighs approximately 50 pounds but is VERY underweight and needs to gain at least 15 pounds. Wyatt has definitely lived a life of neglect but meeting him, you would never know it. He is friendly with every dog he meets and was even good with the cat he met at the shelter. Wyatt is so sweet with people and everyone who meets him quickly falls in love with him. He is a happy boy that just loved the Vet staff paying attention to him. He even loved his bath and the air dryer after! He was happy to just lean in and get love! We are SO happy that we could save Wyatt and give him the life he deserves. It's all uphill from here buddy!!!
