Male/6 weeks


Sweet Birdie girl- well someone had a sense of humor when they named me because I love birds. Well I love to chase them at least. Hi! I am Birdie a 43 pound, 2 year-old sweet chocolate lady. When I first came into Lu’s Labs with a fish-hook in my foot I was in a lot of pain, but Lu’s Labs gave me the attention and medical I need and now I’m feeling better!

I am very good on my leash and enjoy going for walks. I used to limp but now my legs feel much better and my medium energy is coming out. I like going for walks, playing with toys, and being with people… My foster Mama says I am still a little thin and need to gain a few more pounds- I like that, it means I get extra meals and snacks! She said once I get to my ideal weight I will still be the perfect size for cuddling - I like that too. I even heard she said I might get to go on the bed - If I am a good girl. I try to be a good girl and foster Mama says I really am but when I first came here I did chew something I wasn't supposed too - opps I didn't know that all wood wasn't for chewing but I am learning, and foster mama says I am well behaved now! A proper southern lady!! Imagine that me a lady - I like that. She said I still need work on my basic commands, but I am willing to learn if someone will just teach me.

I am pretty nice to the other dogs I have met. They let me stay here so seems only right. I will play with them if they ask me, but I will leave them alone and curl up on the couch or in your lap- I really like being with you! that's my favorite. I haven't been around children- I don't even really know what those are BUT my foster mama says I am so sweet she does not think that would be a problem. You see I am real friendly even with strangers. I just really like everyone.

I have not met a cat yet while with Lu’s Labs, this means I'm a NO for adopters with cats, Lu's Labs does not adopt us out to homes with cats if we have never met a cat before. Sorry! I am crate trained and will go willingly in and have been in for up to 8 hours with no issues but boy oh boy I was glad to get out and go potty and play outside! phew. SO, if you are looking for a proper southern lady think of Me- Birdie and I will sing my way right into your heart - Thanks - I can’t wait to meet you!

Guess who’s back?!?! Brooks!! He's back and this 60 pound black 10 month old is gorgeous better than ever!

His family was not ready for a young and active dog, so they made the best decision for him and returned him to us. We had Brooks evaluated by Rachel at K-9 Divine, a trainer we know and trust. Boy oh boy, he is amazing! He may have been too much puppy for his family but we think he’s awesome for an active family who is ready to provide consistent exercise and direction to him.

This boy is house trained, and just needs some basic training and boundaries. A family that is willing to put in the time a puppy needs will be rewarded with a great 4 legged companion.

Check out this message from Rachel, the trainer:
Brooks is great. He is honestly the easiest dog. When he first got here, he was pretty pushy with jumping on people and invading our personal space, but he has stopped that and now he is no problem. He gets along beautifully with all the other dogs, he sleeps next to my bed at night without a peep, he goes into a crate for feeding time with no fuss, and he is able to settle down and take naps even when other dogs are being rowdy and playful. I think at his last home he did not get enough exercise (he was pretty chubby when he arrived) and then the owners played inappropriately with him by wrestling and getting him too amped up. With sufficient exercise and calm dog handlers he is wonderful. I don’t see any special issues with him, just normal guidelines for an adolescent lab: don’t let him roam unsupervised in the house (he likes to steal dish towels and pot holders but is perfectly nice about giving them back), make sure he gets exercise, discourage jumping, etc.

Brooks will be going to a foster next week and he is available for adoption!

Meet Bruno! Bruno is a 4 yr old black male lab. He ended up in the shelter and they called his family but they never showed up for him. Bruno has what we believe to be a luxating hip and will most likely require FHO surgery, which of course we will do. Bruno is a lover of people and dogs... cats TBD.

There are many great men with the last name Carter, Jimmy Carter, our 39th president, Vince Carter the professional basketball player and Cris Carter former American football player and hall of famer, But, when you only have one name, and your one and only name is Carter, it means you are truly awesome! Lu’s Labs’ Carter is a handsome 2 year old gentleman. He's a complete love! People and their attention are his main motivator. At, 59 pounds, he will completely fill your lap! But when his people aren't available for constant love and pats, Carter loves to play with his fur siblings. He loves to instigate play with a cute playful growl.

In addition to his love of people and pups, he also is great on leash and relishes his walks. He is a medium energy dog, loves to combine backyard play with a couple of walks a day. Carter is still learning about all the joys of being a pampered pup. Having a family of love surround him is new to this boy! Carter has not yet shown interest in toys, but that could change at any minute! Carter is already learning commands and knows sit, stay and come. But in his desperate attempt to be like Vince Carter, he's been working on his "ups"! His foster mom has been encouraging his “downs”, because after all, yellow dogs can’t jump!

Carter will be coaxed into his crate for overnight or during the day visits. He is a good pup. Carter has not perfected choosing dog toys and bones over shoes. So, crating is a good idea for Carter! Overall, this boy will make a wonderful addition to any family. He is the perfect mix of fun and snuggle. Get those apps in today, because this Carter is a slam dunk of a dog.

Meet Dee Dee! Dee is a 3 yr old, 88 pound lab/pyr mix (we think). Dee was riding in the back of her owners pickup truck and jumped out.... unfortunately she was tied up so ended up being dragged and suffered horrific road rash. Her paw pads are in terrible shape and her recovery will take a while. Thankfully they seem to be healing though. She is having them flushed about 4 times a day and will receive laser treatment to help with the healing process. We do not know how Dee is with other dogs as we can not dog test her when she is in pain. She did live with 2 other dogs so hopefully she will be ok with others. Right now she is very scared at the vets and understandably freaked out by a leash. Welcome to Lu’s Labs, Dee! We promise to do everything we can to get you better and find you a loving forever home that will keep you safe!

Old?...Well his love for you is new every day! His face may be white, but his heart is pure gold. Frederick is a 11-year old 80-pound well-polished black diamond. Frederick thinks old friends make the best friends, and that is what you will get with this guy! He is a gentle soul and just wants to be with his human. Spending the day snuggling on the couch, paired with a walk or two, translates to a perfect day for Frederick. He walks great on the leash too, using just a collar. Frederick is house broken, and a crate isn’t even needed for this debonair guy. He loves to sleep on his dog bed at night. Plush toys are a favorite of his. This smart boy would love to show that upon he can sit, come, lay down and “leave-it” upon request.

Everyone loves puppies, but old dogs love everyone! The same is true for Frederick. He is not particular to people. He loves everyone from the human species regardless of age or gender, (his foster has not had him around babies or very young kids). Where the canine species is concerned, Frederick prefers laid back/low energy dogs. This sweet boy’s current foster has not seen him with or exposed him to cats. Frederick’s ideal home would be a home without a lot of steps to go up and down.

If Frederick could speak, he’d tell you his affection is timeless, his devotion is ageless, and his love is forever. Aren’t you ready to welcome this handsome senior into your life?

Cat Note: This dog is considered a MAYBE with cats. This dog has either been cat tested at one of our boarding facilities or around one of our foster homes, they have not shown aggression toward cats, but there is not enough data for us to give a resounding yes. This dog can only go to homes with cats who are dog savvy and owners who know the proper way to introduce cats and dogs.

Have you ever heard the saying, “Everything is Jake?” Well, that’s slang for everything is alright! At Lu’s Labs, we think our Jake is not just alright, we think he’s downright awesome!

This beautiful black boy is one of us now and looking to make your life complete. At 4-years old, this 83-pound hunk of lab is medium energy and his biggest problem is deciding who he loves more - humans or canine buddies. All genders, ages, and canines are welcome.

The perfect home would provide him with daily walks and exercise. He walks nicely using just a collar and would also enjoy doggie play dates. As long as they aren’t with Rocky! (Wink) This 4-year-old loves to chase his canine friends and he is just as happy being chased. As of now Jake is unknown with cats so he will not be able to go to a home with cats. He definitely chases goats though…so no goats. He loves all types of toys. Some of his favorites include tennis balls, kongs, bones and pull toys, but he’s sometimes selfish and does not always like to share toys or food willingly with his canine companions.

Jake is so smart and already has a long repertoire of commands like sit, come, down, and stay. Additional training with the family who he adopts will help to perfect these skills. He’s food motivated and eager to learn new things, so the possibilities to his greatness are endless. Both housebroken and is crate trained he goes into his crate willingly, especially when he is getting a treat for entry. He may cry or bark initially but settles once he’s inside. Jake’s family will want to be sure to keep bones around to chew which will help keep him focused on appropriate things to chew.

Jake would like to spend the rest of his life with you, being loved on, and lounging around the house with you. Aren’t you ready to make “Everything Jake again?”

Meet Maverick from Mississippi! Although he is not a young United States Naval Aviator he will without a doubt, Take Your Breath Away. (Do you have more music stuck in your head now?)

Maverick is a 1-year-old beautiful black male weighing approximately 71 pounds. He already has a large set of mastered skills – he’s housebroken, does not need a crate, does not chew items left out in his southern foster house, he already knows commands “sit” and “down”, and loves to sleep in his human’s bed. Since he is young and high energy he will benefit from training to learn more commands and reach that Lieutenant skill set that his name sake has achieved.

He is good with ALL people and ALL dogs. He currently lives with other canine friends and they are playful with each other throughout the day. Since he does have a rank of unknown when it comes to cats, he will not be able to go to a home with feline friends, as per his command officer’s directive, Lu’s Labs. This agreeable beauty has high energy and will require numerous daily opportunities to do what he likes best; walks, jogging, playdates and fetching tennis balls. He also loves to problem solve with interactive toys and Kongs. Maverick will need to learn some leash skills such as not pulling and that squirrels are not to be chased when on walks.

If you are looking for a four-legged loyal friend, Maverick may be the perfect Top Gun for you!

“Dogs are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole” – Roger Caras

Aren’t you ready to have Riva make your life complete? Everyone loves sweet dark chocolate! That’s what the lucky family is getting when you welcome Riva into her furever home.

This beautiful 4-year-old is housebroken, crates willingly, and loves all people regardless of age or gender. There are no strangers to miss Riva. She is an energetic girl and will do best in an active home that will provide her with exercise such as long walks, jogs, or lots of fetch. Some leash walking practice and perhaps a harness is needed since she pulls using just a collar, but she loves to play with other dogs. Riva’s is “dog selective” for now she must be an only dog, BUT with time and training she could be able to have K9 friends and siblings. Down in the south she did get along with the resident dogs, but since moving up to the North she's shown that just like humans, we can't all get along, for this reason we are requiring her to be the only dog. The resident cat in her foster home tolerates her. Riva always wants to play with the cat, but never tries to harm it. She and the cat are much happier when she calmly sniffs.

Riva is just a social girl. Everyone she meets, she loves! Due to her young age, Riva still tends to jump with excitement when she greets you, so small children and anyone unstable on their feet need to be aware. This is her greeting. She doesn’t mean anything by it, but she can catch you off guard if you aren’t ready. She’s smart too! She already knows sit, come, and stay, but additional training helpful in making Riva the perfect pet for any household. Are you ready for this lovely dark chocolate?

“A dog is the only thing that loves you more than he loves himself.” – Josh Billings

Cat Note: This dog is considered a "Yes" with cats. While this dog has been around cats and lived with cats, if your cat has never been around dogs, or even if it has been, please take time to do proper introductions for the safety and well-being of all animals involved. This can take hours, days, weeks or even months. Not all animals are going to be best friends right off the bat.

Rocket and Blue are medium energy and looking for a loving home together. Could that home be yours?

Mama Roux has taken care of her crew (of puppies) and now it’s time for her to find a family of her own! This chocolate love is the sweet snugglebug you’ve been looking for. Her foster mom says, “It’s difficult to find anything that isn’t special about Roux. She’s a wise girl. Very attentive to what’s going on and seems to just know where to be or what to do to make things easier. She loves being loved on and shows it by gently resting her head in people’s laps.” How sweet!

Roux is around 5 years old and weighs in around 60lbs. She may still gain a little weight as she settled into a healthy post-puppy routine. She is also housebroken and crate-trained, and will go into her crate willingly. She is also low- to medium-energy and would do fine with walks and some light play time, but also enjoys parallel play and doggie visits. Roux also walks nicely with just a collar. WOW!

And what about how she is with people and dogs? She is a rockstar with people of all ages! Her foster family includes kids ranging from 4-9 and Roux has loved them all without any problems. In terms of dogs, she has been nothing short of awesome. Her foster fur-siblings haven’t always been the most welcoming (read: they’re a little jealous when she gets attention), but she has been a gracious and polite lady anyway. Her foster mom said, “She graciously steps back when her bratty foster sister(s) jealously interrupt any attention she’s getting. The patience and quick wit Roux uses to de-escalate every single situation they’ve had, is nothing short of impressive.”

Roux hasn’t met any cats, but she has been fine with ducks! She was curious about the ducks but didn’t bother them and came back when called. Because Roux is still considered unkown with cats this means she is not available for adoption to homes with cats, Lu’s Labs does not adopt dogs out to homes with cats if we have never seen a cat interaction. Better safe than sorry.

So what’s this gals shortcomings? There has to be something! Only if you consider stealing a pepperoni off the very edge of the table a problem. Can’t blame her though. Plenty of humans would steal pepperoni off the edge of a table too given the chance! She also knows basic commands, but will enjoy working with her new family at mastering them and learning new ones.

A final word from her foster mom…“Roux is an old soul who would make anyone proud. Everyone who’s met her has melted.”

Is Roux for you!?

I can’t believe there are 54 adorable photos of me and yet still no one is stepping up to give me a forever home. I am truly an awesome, loving dog. I had a rough start when I came into rescue. I was found along with my 6 puppies, but I took wonderful care of them and they all found amazing homes.

I am approximately 2 years old and weighing in at 44 pounds - I’m the perfect size. Not too big and not too small. I’m like a pocket lab. I wish I could tell you more about my early years, but I’ve blocked that time out. It was not the loving environment I’ve experienced at my foster mom’s home. Once my babies were all adopted I went down to Richmond to live with this nice lady while I went through my heartworm treatment. She is patient and loving and her kids who are home from college think I am an awesome dog. I absolutely love my people. Being the fly weight that I am I make the perfect lap dog.

In my early weeks with the rescue, I was still figuring things out. I had never experienced love before, so naturally I was a little fearful. As time has progressed though I am quite comfortable in my own skin. Let’s face it, I kind of own my foster mom’s house, and all the people know I’m a soft black ball of love. I love the outdoors, and I equally love to chase squirrels, but what healthy happy dog doesn’t? I’m good in and out of my crate, I don’t need to be fed in there, but if you want me to eat in my crate I will. I have no problem with that thing these days, but my preferred happy place is to be as close to humans as possible. If you let me snuggle in your bed I will spoon with you. But if you want me to sleep on the floor I will respect your space, and only come up when invited.

I’ll do anything for a treat. Just so you know. And my happy dance? It could be on So You Think You Can Dance. I do the happy dance whenever I see my people when they come home, when they let me out of my crate, I’m just a super happy girl. Foster mom says I have an innate ability to sense when someone needs love, because if she’s feeling sad, I’m Johnny on the spot with kisses and nudges to make sure she’s okay.

With all this love I lavish upon people it should be a small ask that I have my own yard, and you understand that I may not take kindly to other dogs. I need to be an only child, and come on, with all the love I have to give, I really don’t see why you’d need any other pet. It’s just a fact. I’m gonna bark at other dogs. But I am rock solid in a thunder storm and I don’t react to fireworks.

Maybe over time, with the right training and consistency I can get over my reactions to other dogs, but you must love me for who I am right now. I think the pluses far outweigh the minuses.

Waverson is a medium sized black 2-year-old boy weighing in at 57 pounds…that would be 57 pounds of happiness and love! Attention should be his middle name, if you stop petting him he will start to pet you with his paws and jump around for more lovin’. He is good with kids but will need adult supervision until he’s got his child like happiness under control and learns the 4 paws on the ground rule.

This boy has been in boarding down in the south and while house broken, sometimes he does a little glee pee in his crate from excitement when someone comes to visit. While he already knows sit, stay and easy, this young energetic pup will benefit from more training to reinforce commands. He has learned to take treats nicely and will walk on a leash and stay by your side. At the same time this playful boy will do leash circles trying to get you to play. He seems to be a quick learner, and wants to please his people.

People are his thing, but big dogs his size or larger are not his cup of tea. He is fine with female dogs, and smaller dogs, but since he wants to be the big man on campus he cannot go to a home with another male dog his size or larger.

At the boarding facility they tried testing him out with cats, since we aren’t sure if wanted to play with the cats or eat them, for the safety of furry friends already in the home, Waverson cannot go to a home with cats. He is a no for our feline friends.

Meet Willow! Willow is a beautiful black lab approx. 3 years old and weighs 79 pounds. Willow is looking for a home without other dogs and no cats, please. Willow is leash reactive with other dogs, so we are requiring a fenced yard. She is medium energy and never misses the opportunity to chase a ball. She is sweet as pie and gets along fantastic with children!
