Billy is a sweet, wonderful black lab with white toes and a white chest, almost like he’s stepped in frosting. He’s 3-4 years old and a pretty medium to low energy dog who needs another dog to follow around and show him the ropes. He can be shy at first meeting new people and needs some time to trust. It can take a week for him to warm up to new people, but once he does, he will come up to his humans and touch noses, get rubs, and give kisses.

Getting Billy’s love is like finding a secret treasure. It takes time, and effort, you have to be calm and slow and follow the map, and eventually you will be rewarded. But it’s well worth the wait! He will come up and want to be pet and scratched but movements need to be slow or he may get spooked. This bashful guy has not yet learned the art of the full cuddle. Not a lap dog type, he respectfully stays off of furniture. He’s favorite place to sleep is on a blanket next to foster mom and dad’s bed.

He really takes his cues from his foster brother, so another laid-back dog is great for him, and helps him find his confidence, while teaching him the rules of the house. He’s still learning what it’s like to play with another dog, and while he follows, he hasn’t been very big at playing. Though once foster dad saw him engage and enjoy a friendly game of tug with his foster brother. And he does love his bones and antlers. The living room looks like a boneyard that he’s perfectly happy to sample.

On leash walks Billy doesn’t pull much, but he’s vigilantly looking around at the sights to make sure it’s all clear. Foster dad, who is retired and spends the most time with Billy, says this boy is super sweet and one word to describe him would be an introvert. He isn’t going to be the outgoing dog to go play fetch and run miles with you, but if you want to chill with a fur friend, that is Billy’s specialty. “Easy” should be Billy’s middle name, as he is the easiest dog you will ever meet.

In previous foster homes Billy has had the chance to meet cats. These introductions and interactions should be supervised, and only dog savvy cats will be considered. Small children are a little bit too much activity and unpredictability for Billy’s world. If there are children in his forever home, they need to be dog savvy and 12 and up. And it can’t be the kind of home that is the hub of the neighborhood. That combination of social activity just doesn’t work with Billy’s introverted spirit.

His two favorite places when he’s out and about, are either chilling on the area rug with a bone nearby his humans or retreating to his safe space in his crate. He’s very fond of his crate and finds it a peaceful place. Recently foster mom was even able to sit on the floor on Billy’s blanket and chill with him. He even let her give him a kiss on the top of the head! Again, patiently waiting for mile stones are the key to opening up this special treasure. Given time you will see all the gold pieces begin spilling out.

If you are looking for a low-maintenance, easy going companion, and have a quiet home with another laid-back canine, then Billy would make the prefect addition to your home. He is definitely a rescue dog who deserves being treasured.

Meet Bo! This 65-pound hunk o’ handsome black lab was found in Tennessee, and we couldn’t be happier to have him join the Lu’s Labs ranks.

Bo is a true sweetheart. At approximately 7.5 years-old, his story is bittersweet. This boy came to Lu’s Labs as an owner give up. There are so many reasons that people decide to give up a member of their family. One of the saddest is when the owner becomes so ill or has grown old and can no longer care for their dog despite the fact that they love them. Such is the case with Bo. Bo’s Mom found him tied to a tree, abandoned, when Bo was about 3. She took Bo home and loved him as well as she could for the next several years. Now a life change has landed her in assisted living, and she did the most loving thing she could. Bo become a Lu’s Lab so that another family could love Bo for the rest of his life. This great boy loves other dogs but is a no with cats. He has a bit of Yin and Yang going on when it comes to energy – he’s low to medium energy dog indoors and can chill with the best of them, but outdoors loves to run, play, hike, and have a great time with any dog or on his own.

When Bo first came to Lu’s he wasn’t properly trained to walk on a leash; think of a team of oxen pulling a sled! Ha! But NOW his leash manners are great with a harness and his pre-teen human foster bro can walk him with no problem. Bo has been working on basic commands with foster mom. He’s doing well with sit and is completely potty trained. Bo likes to eat and loves his people. He’s still working on taking treats gently but he’s an eager learner for anything new you want to teach him.

While Bo is fabulous with kids, he thinks a PB&J sandwich in a hand is his. For this reason, he can go to homes with kids 8 and up, though dog savvy kids with lower ages will be considered. Bo crates well during the work day and when his people return, he laps up your attention and asks for belly rubs.

If you are looking for a happy, medium to low energy lab who wants your affection, is an avid learner, and enjoys playing with other dogs. We know the third time will be the charm for this boy’s happily ever after. From his sad beginnings tied to a tree by his first owners. Then his second owner took ill and could no longer care for him. Bo really deserves a win. Could that win be with you?

Ms. Buttercup is that beautiful yellow lab female everyone has been looking for, why she was a stray on the streets of Texas, we will never know.

While she’s been with Lu’s Labs since mid-September, she’s been one of our best kept secrets. At 4-years-old and originally coming to us at 100 pounds, this poor girl had a torn ACL and needed surgery. And of course, Lu’s Labs kicked into care mode for this sweet lady.

A little overweight and needing ACL surgery isn’t a winning combination for recovery. Ms. Buttercup loves to eat, but she has been on a diet which includes her beloved green beans. They must be doing the trick as she is slimming down. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could all so easily substitute in portion control and green beans in order to lose that pesky weight? Ah the life of a dog. Now 12 weeks post op, she is doing well as she eats her greens and recovers.

On the mend, Ms. Buttercup has unfortunately spent most of her days in a boarding facility in Texas instead of a warm cozy foster home. This is due to the sheer numbers of strays that need to be rescued in Texas and the woeful shortage of indoor fosters willing and able to take in rescue dogs. But through it all, Buttercup shines through just like her name.

She is a very happy dog who likes to follow right behind a person. Is she a Velcro dog in the making? Maybe! Before her surgery she was a joyful dog-play companion and romped and roamed with other dogs. Since her surgery she has been kept relatively calm and does not protest going into her crate. When she goes on potty breaks she still has dog friends who want to play.

This girl isn’t just sweet, she’s strong, so some lash training will be needed to reduce her pull. On occasion she does jump but it’s not a regular thing. Because of her size and strength, it will be important to supervise her around small children. A hip check from this voluptuous girl could result in a toddler spill.

Take this girl for a car ride and she’s in heaven. She loads into a car easily and enjoys the ride.

If you are looking for a sweet shadow that gets along with other dogs and loves her people, then this yellow girl is your world. She needs to learn what it’s like to be an indoor dog, but the way she wants to please her people, she will learn the indoor ropes in no time!

Male/3.5 months


Meet Carmen! Much like her namesake Carmen Miranda, this bonita chica loves to salsa with the big dogs and walk right over the small dogs! Dressed in black, Carmen is about 2 1/2 years old and weighs about 78 pounds.

Carmen has a lot of personality and energy and this flirt enjoys being chased by bigger dogs but is also just as happy laying back and chilling out! A total love bug with all people, she also enjoys snuggling and giving lots of kisses!

She has loved everyone she’s met so far, including a 7-year-old. She currently lives with cats and hasn't shown an interest in chasing. Carmen is still learning basic commands. She is good in a crate, and nearly potty trained. The key to 100% success is paying attention to her signs and making sure she stays outside long enough to do her business.

This sweet girl is a very patient learner who will enjoy plenty of positive encouragement! She goes into her crate with coaxing, but her foster did not use it and she prefers to sleep in bed with you or on the floor. If you enjoy long walks to the park, playing ball and are ready to share your heart with this sweet girl please contact your Adoption Coordinator for more information!

Hi there, Chuck here. Our Foster Mom says I need to tell you a little more about myself and my best bud, Snuggles. We are like Batman and Robin, the dynamic duo! Bonded we are, so we must be adopted together. Looking for two great labs? Looking to add excitement into your family, well Snuggles and I would be the perfect addition. We are both a year old and come with an abundance of enthusiasm to bring excitement in your life.

Snuggles is a beautiful black lab and I am a handsome chocolate boy. Snuggles weighs 65 pounds and I weigh 63 pounds so size wise we are very similar. This helps out a lot since we love to play with each other. We also love our humans, even little humans and other dogs and we have good manners. I must take a minute to brag on myself and Snuggles, our Foster Mom said we were perfect gentleman when meeting the next door neighbor’s dog through the fence. We did not try to go over or under the fence, we were very good and displayed awesome manners. When our Foster Mom cleaned up the backyard, Snuggles and I were right there giving her assistance and moral support. We enjoyed ourselves and even tried to climb a tree. Foster Mom wanted to take a video, however we did not want to be overnight lab sensations. Too much of a blur for the camera.

Playing with toys and each other are ways we like to entertain ourselves. I must say, playing with rope toys is a favorite of Snuggles. Frolicking outside with our people ranks pretty high on our list too. Neither one of us have ever meet a cat, so we cannot go to a home with feline friends. When we have too much alone time in the backyard, we may revert back to our magician ways and try a disappearing act. As long as we know you will stay out back with us, we have no interest in disappearing.

Spending time with our people and impressing them is something we both enjoy. We are quick learners and our leash walking has improved to almost no more pulling. We hear we have a training addendum and that’s okay because I think Snuggles and I would enjoy and benefit from one on one training, along with being trained together.

Once we have played and tired ourselves, we are ready to show our affections. Out of the two of us, I am more uninhibited, and give love and show affection a little more quickly. Snuggles is the more reserved one, who like to assess the new person before freely giving affection. Belly rubs are awesome. In fact, I think humans are here to rub my belly. Snuggles wants the attention and belly rubs when he is ready for it. Don't get me wrong, once you have Snuggles trust, he is just as loving as I am. I am learning from foster mom how to give hugs to my humans with all four paws on the ground. We do know how to sit and wait for our dinner and we eat in our crate since we have foster siblings.

So if you are looking for sweet, affectionate, unconditional givers of love, who bring enthusiasm to life, ask to adopt Snuggles and Chuck, the dynamic duo!

I’m a 2-3-year-old, chocolate boy who weighs in at 70 pounds. I love giving chocolate kisses to her and my foster sisters. I'm all about the ladies! Scratches under the chin are my favorite and I have the lab lean down pat. I just want to be as close to you as possible.

When I first came into rescue I was emaciated and extremely underweight. My loving foster mama down south fattened me up and now I’m a happy camper. I get along with every female dog I meet as well as smaller males, but I’m not great with males over 50 pounds. With time and training that could change, but for now you have to love me as I am. Foster mom says I’m the perfect gentleman as evidenced by my ladies first motto. I always let my foster sisters get to the ball and the dog bed first.

Besides being a super lovable boy, I acclimate to the energy of the people or pack I’m around. When it’s playtime outside I run and play. But indoors I like to lay around on the couch or do whatever is on the agenda. I’ve learned a lot since I moved up north, like now I take treats gently, I’m MUCH better with 4 paws on the floor, I’ve learned commands like sit, and I’m working well with come, and stay. My love of treats makes me very trainable.

Foster mom has seen me become such a great dog since I’ve been with her up in the north. In fact, she says if she could fit 3 dogs in her budget, I would already be home! Words she uses to describe me include beautiful, wonderful, lovey… these all sound like perfect reasons why a family would want me.

While I’m fully housebroken, I am GREAT in my crate. I need to be in thick of things so if no one is around, I settle in for the day and enjoy my naps. Foster mom says I’m sooooo chill. But I am a big dog and I can be a bull in a china shop, so people need to be aware so I don’t knock small children down or break any Fabergé eggs. Right now, I’m approved for homes with kids 8 and up but may consider younger if they are dog savvy. I’m a no with cats though since I’ve never met one.

While I love my people, I can be shy at first. Give me a little time and we’ll be the best of friends. Once you pet me, we are all good. I like my leash walks and do better on a harness then just a leash.

If you are looking for the perfect package of fun and loving, then that would be me!

Meet Drake! He is 2 to 3 years old and weighs around 70 pounds. Drake was found living on a chain in horrible conditions. When a good samaritan saw him, she asked the owners if they would consider surrendering to her so he could have a better life. They agreed and she got him out of there and contacted Lu's Labs for help. We of course said yes so Drake is now a Lu's Labs boy! Drake is a happy friendly boy who is good with other dogs. There will be no more living outside on a chain for this boy ever again!

Meet Duke! This handsome Mississippi boy is one year old and weighs about 75lbs. Duke’s original family loves him so much and had to make the difficult decision to give him up due to a family illness. As much as they love Duke, they know he deserves more than they can give him.

Duke is very sweet and smart; he knows come, sit and shake and is ready to learn more commands to impress his family. Like most young dogs, Duke is active and loves to run, romp and play. This fun-loving boy is great with dogs of all sizes and loves children. He currently lives with three Boston terriers and is doing great. There are no cats in his foster home, so he can’t go to a forever home with feline friends.

While medium energy, if other dogs in the house are higher energy and want to play, Duke is always happy to oblige. He can get excited when he plays, so families with young children should be aware. Duke’s family should be ready to enroll him in training to develop him into the perfect gentleman. He loves toys and is hoping his forever family keeps the toy bucket full. In return, he promises he will appreciate each and every toy and show you his fetch skills.

This smart boy is potty trained and has not had a single accident in his foster home. Duke lets you know when he needs a bathroom break, he goes to the door and waits for you to notice him. What a good boy! When his humans leave for work, Duke sits at the door and cries and barks for a little while. Once he realizes they aren’t coming back he will settle down and wait patiently for them to return. No apartments or condos for this boy. Duke isn’t a fan of his crate either. He will go into his crate but if you close the door, Duke will bark and howl in protest. He knows he’s a good boy and can be trusted to have free reign of the house while his humans are at work. He has proven this to his foster mom, and he has not destroyed a single thing in the house. Now if only his humans didn’t have to work, Duke could love on them all day!

Duke believes his purpose in life is to make his humans feel loved and he takes this job very seriously. He never misses the chance to snuggle on the sofa with his humans and he enjoys sleeping in the human bed next to his person. The one thing Duke doesn’t understand is why he can’t go everywhere with his humans! If you are looking for a cuddle bug like this then make sure to let your adoption coordinator know!

Hi! My name is Dutch. I’m a handsome 3-year-old black lab mix weighing in around 65 pounds. I’m a sweet boy from Louisiana – I’m great with other dogs and I LOVE people!

Sadly, I found myself in an overcrowded shelter where my time was up. Luckily the shelter workers fell in love with me because I’m so darn sweet! In an effort to protect me from the fate of dogs who have been in the shelter too long, the workers began hiding me while they looked for a rescue to liberate me from the shelter.

Those nice people saved my life when they got Lu’s Labs attention, which couldn’t have been a better situation for me to land in such an amazing place! I hear from everyone I am going to have an amazing new life.

I’m so happy about this. In fact, as a happy boy with a huge love of all people I can sometimes show my excitement by jump up to let you know I’m here. Around small kids you will want to supervise our interactions so I don’t knock anyone down, but with some training, I’m sure I will learn to control my excitement. I’m learning the ropes now of what it’s like to be a dog who is living in a home. I really like it! I already know sit and stay, but I do have a few things to work on. The items at the top of the list are keeping all 4 paws on the ground, a little mouthiness, and leash skills. This is all to be expected though since I am new to this indoor life. Oh, and did I mention counter surfing? But hey I’ve seen humans do it, so why not me? Foster mom says I’m a little on the thin side, but she’ll make sure to take care of that. We’ll work on my manners as well, and I’m sure I’ll learn quickly. But of course my forever family will want to continue the great work my foster family starts with me and keep it consistent.

So far, I have loved every dog I meet and I’m pretty good at respecting my elder canines when they tell me they don’t feel like playing. My foster home doesn’t have a cat, and I haven’t interacted with them yet, so I hear according to the Lu’s Labs rules, I can’t go to a home with cats.

I’m housebroken and have not had a single accident with my southern foster. I didn’t love my crate right after my neuter because a cone of shame in the crate was no fun, but now without the cone I'm just fine in my crate, but it doesn't hurt to throw in a little bribe.

I love attention from my humans and especially a good ear scratch. But I’ll let you in on a secret, I’m not partial, I just love scratches! Yes: pet me, pet me. I LOVE it!

My wishes for the New Year are World Peace and a forever home. I promise to help work on the former if you will provide me with the latter. Happy New Year! Love, Dutch

Since Ethan’s Lu’s Lab debut, he has made great strides! Although he came from challenging living conditions, he is thankful that his Owner realized the need to surrender him. With his steady weight gain and Lu’s Lab Love, Ethan’s confidence level continually increases and his personality is popping! He is such a sweet and grateful fur baby!

Ethan loves humans, kids included, and fur friends, including dog savvy cats and believe it or not….. ducks! He may need a 10-minute warm-up period to totally engage with his fair-weathered fur friends but after that it’s smooth sailing. Hugs are an endearing gesture and Ethan is working on proper etiquette for public displays of affection. Sometimes a full-blown paw to shoulder hug or a kiss in the mouth is a little overwhelming to the humans he loves and is excited to encounter! Tennis balls are a favorite toy and Ethan loves to play!

He is super smart and quickly adhering to commands such as “sit”, “wait”, “lay” and “back.” Eagerness to learn is one of his admirable qualities! Additional commands will be welcomed, as he is so eager to please! He has the potty trained “thing” mastered! Obviously, he is crazy about food and is happily enjoying his regular feeding schedule, but it is important to note that amazingly Ethan has not once counter-surfed or snatched food from the hands of his little humans. He is so thankful to have regular meals. You should see is happy dance that he performs when he is apprised of the opportunity to eat or go outside! It is Dancing with the Stars worthy!

Ethan has become quite the fashion plate! His foster mom has decked him out in the latest fashion with no resistance! This trait is an additional contribution to attest to Ethan’s easy-going loving personality!

Family life has proven to be Ethan’s happy spot! He often forgets his size and thinks he’s a lap dog and loves the human cuddle time. Ethan would make a great addition to any family! Who wouldn’t want to start the New Year with Ethan and share his new-found joy of life?

My name is Grady and I want to tell you all a little bit about myself. The folks at Lu’s Labs say you are going to want to know all about me, so you can put your application in on me. I hear there are probably going to be at least 20 families that are going to want me when they find out how amazing I am. I’m kind of blushing, though you can’t see it through my yellow fur.

I’m actually around 3 year’s old and weigh in at 51 pounds. I’m kind of perfect, and I’m not being bias. I hear there are people who really want labs that get along with cats… well you’ll be pleased to know that I have no interest in chasing them, and I even will sleep near the resident cat here in foster town. I’m a medium energy dude, and I can’t be bothered expending it chasing cats, or really anything else for that matter.

I get along with ALL dogs and people. No one is a stranger to me. So far I’ve gotten to meet the foster family’s 19-month-old niece, and 10 and 13 year old’s too. I LOVE them ALL! There are 4 dogs including a Great Pyrenees foster over here, and I enjoy all of my furry friends equally. I like leash walks and long strolls in the park, and apparently using just a collar and not pulling is a great thing. When the opportunity arises I also enjoy car rides.

I’ve been such a good boy while here I get to sleep in the big comfy bed at night with my foster parents. They say I’m a cuddler, a love bug, and just so many smooshy terms of endearment. I’m just sooooo happy to get belly rubs. If you aren’t one to have a dog in your bed, I will sleep in a crate as well. I’m really good in those things and spend quiet time in there all day when everyone is out at that thing called work. I just wait patiently for them to come home so I can get more of those belly rubs. I haven’t chewed anything up that I shouldn’t so far, but it’s always good to let me be in a safe space like a crate while you are out. Especially in the getting to know you phase.

If you like to spend time in the kitchen, I’m a great helper. I just sit patiently while foster mom cooks supper and if she hands me sliced apples, I am super happy, I love those things!

My foster mom says I am just such a sweet boy and I get along with everybody and everything! I know commands already like Sit, Leave it, Stay and Come, and I’m sure if you wanted to teach me others I would learn those too. But I hear those are the main ones I need anyway. I love being with humans, but I’m okay being alone too. I just chill and wait for you to return.

I’m looking forward to the next phase of life where I get my forever family, I know Lu’s Labs will make sure they are as sweet and kind as my foster family.

Meet handsome Graham, a truly sweet, funny boy with tons of personality! Completely house broken and no accidents in his crate, At 1-2 years-old and 68 pounds, Graham is the best cuddle buddy you could ask for and wants to be a lap dog!

Foster Mom Says, "Graham is really the perfect dog for the entire family. He loves to push the basketball around in the backyard with his nose. He would be a perfect soccer buddy! And he’s a lap dog too after he’s gotten in his play time! He loves to stretch out on my lap on his back and be cradled like a baby! Best of both worlds: sporting breed and lap dog all in one!"

He is in heaven lying next to his human, cheek to cheek. What a love muffin. And when he isn’t cuddling, he enjoys spending his energy with a lot of exercise, playing fetch and running in the backyard several times a day.

He is super playful and goofy. He desperately wants to make new dog friends and once he does he loves playing and wrestling. He does best with dogs who are patient and able to stand up to his jovial pushiness. He hasn’t met a person he didn’t love and is very friendly with strangers, but he’s a no with cats.

While this boy loves to romp and play, he’s also a happy camper chewing on strong toys like stuffed Kongs and antlers. In his foster home, he’s crated during the work day and for bed time. Crating when not around will ensure this sweet boy doesn’t chew anything that’s not his. He is still learning leash manners and basic commands. Like any typical dog, he needs to learn 4 paws on the floor. He enjoys keeping your counters clean as well. Very eager to learn, he takes correction well and you rarely need to say no twice.

Ultimately, he just wants to please his humans. He will give you lots of sloppy kisses and what can be a better reward than having this cuddle buddy at the end of a fun day of play?

If you think your household is a good match for this amazing boy please contact your Adoption Coordinator for further information!

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.

Female/8 months


To look at her now, you’d never guess that this gorgeous, red, 1-2-year-old girl with the warm eyes that look like they’ve been lined by an expert doggie makeup artist was part of a huge roundup of animals in an animal cruelty case in Louisiana.

When she was found, she was on a six foot metal chain with no food or water, on a farm littered with neglected and starving animals. Her pictures from that day are heartbreaking – half the weight she should have been, eyes revealing that she’d almost given up hope.

Fast forward to today, and after excellent veterinary care and the loving guidance of her southern foster, Kelsey has learned how to live the life of a pampered pup. First, she discovered the feel of a consistently full belly with plenty of fresh water. “Sweet relief!”, Kelsey thought! Next, she found joy in a comfy dog bed. “Just right” she sighed. Then, she discovered her canine foster siblings. “I love them all – big and small!” said Kelsey. A few days later, she figured out that people give dogs toys to play with. “Eureka!” said Kelsey who had never seen a toy before.

For Kelsey, the prospect of living another day improved immediately upon rescue, and smart pup that she is, she is adjusting to this vastly improved existence and all the joys that being part of a family can bring. Kelsey is making great progress in her potty-training skills and she is happy to spend time in the crate if offered a bite of food as a bribe. She loves her human foster sibling and seems to enjoy every person she meets. She has even been fine with the hustle and bustle of new people coming in and out of her foster home during a home renovation. She occasionally drops to the ground with sudden movements, but she is learning that sudden movements don’t portend disaster. She is more relaxed every day and recovering more quickly when she is surprised. “Humans can be kind” realized Kelsey.

Kelsey still has weight to gain, but loves food and treats so this should be a fun mission to continue to tackle with her forever family. She does like to have her food and treats without other pups around, but of course this makes perfect sense considering she went who knows how long with nothing. Her last, longest and best lesson to learn in this newfound life is the experience of a forever family to call her own. “Hallelujah!” she’ll say. “I’ve been waiting for you. I’m so glad you’re here!”

1/10/19 update: While everyone else has been making new year's resolutions to shed the holiday weight, I’m doing just the opposite. My goal for 2019 is to put on 25-30 more pounds, and I’m already off to such a great start! When Lu’s rescued me I was really skinny and weak but over the past few weeks I’ve been eating lots of yummy food which they tell me it’s high-calorie, whatever that means…all I know is that it’s DELICIOUS and I’ve already starting gaining weight! I have also been getting lots of snuggles from all the humans I get to hang out with everyday. Some of them bring me toys, which are cool and all but I’m more about the scratchies and snuggles. They even dress me up in sweaters sometimes, which I like because they keep me extra warm and cozy especially since my fur is still growing back. Another thing I’m working on is my muscle strength. I’ve already started using my back legs more, especially during play time and also to get a better look at what the humans are doing. All in all, I think 2019 has good things in store for me. Bring on the treats!

Meet Lucky!!! He is our first dog of 2019 and what better of a way than to ring in the new year with a dog named Lucky! (We didn't name him that either, he came with that name!) Lucky is a sweet approximately 5 year old boy who weighs around 65 pounds. Sadly Lucky's mom has cancer and is having a hard time giving him what he needs while she's going through treatment. She wants him to have everything he deserves so reached out to one of our volunteers to see if we could make him a Lu's Labs boy and find him a GREAT home! We, of course, said YES! He is good with other dogs and loves all people, big and small. He is a LOVE!

Nolan, here. I hale from Texas and like the beautiful rose of that great state, I am a yellow boy! At 50 pounds and 2-years-old, I happen to have all the charms any family would desire. My Texas roots have afforded me the gifts of cuddling on the couch, playing nicely with other dogs, and a pure love for the humans in my life.

I have been hanging with my foster family for a while now, and they just ‘bout love every speck of me. To be completely honest, I am a lovely boy to behold. I am eager to follow the leading hand of my family. As a good boy, I know the great things that arrive on my tongue from the hand of my human- TREATS! And FOOD! I love me some treats and food! I come a running when the food bowl is picked up. I hear it from outside and in, and I race to my crate and await the pleasure of my morning and evening meals! Ah-Heaven.

I am proud to say that I am fully house broken and crate trained. I have been crated up to 7 hours and I was fine... I just sleep he day away. I am very proficient at sit, leave it, and come. But, alas, my love for food makes me a true counter surfer. I am ashamed to say that this habit is a toughie to break. Please be patient with me. I am trying my best. But, it’s food. I have a difficult time saying “no”

I love walks! I am a friendly guy. I know I shouldn’t pull, but sometimes my excitement gets the best of me. So, foster mom says I need to work on not pulling. It should be a pleasant experience for those on both ends of the leash. I will need to have some patience with that habit as well.

Most of these things are just regular dog stuff that gets better with time, activities to keep me busy, and some of that positive reinforcement training. Give me a chance, and I’ll steal your heart. I will be the best yellow lab of Texas to ever enter your life!

I would love some canine siblings, though it isn’t necessary. I love to play, wrestle, chase with all manner of dogs, regardless of gender or size. I have never met a cat! So, no felines can be in my forever family.

My favorites are my people, though. I will follow you wherever you go. If you are in the mood for cuddling, I am your man! If you want to play, I am the guy for you. I will share kisses and attention with my family all day long! I am Nolan, the yellow boy of Texas, and I already know that I love YOU!

Porter and Preston are a fabulous duo! They are the Yin to each other's Yang. Porter is dark chocolate 77 pound 7-year old chillaxed boy and Preston is his light yellow 2 year-old 60 pound alter ego. Porter is calm and mellow where Preston is active and bouncy. Our chocolate boy is more of a mill around the yard or lay out and catch some rays next to another dog kind of dog, where his brother from another mother is always ready for a doggy play session. Porter is quieter and willing to give you the time to figure out what he wants where Preston is quick to tell you exactly what he needs.

While there are several differences about these boys, one thing they share is their love for the love! These love muffins crave attention and will take as much as you are willing to give. So far everyone they’ve met has been a friend, though they have yet to meet any small children.

Preston desperately wants to be a lap dog and is happiest when touching you, even if it's just a paw on your leg. Porter is aware of his size and knows being a lap dog isn't in the cards for him but still loves the attention.

These boys have clearly lived together prior to coming to the shelter and we suspect they are father and son. They do like each other and get along well but can handle being apart for short periods of time. They are not dogs that lose it when the other one isn't around. They are very happy to get one on one attention with people. Long walks one on one with a person is enjoyable to both boys individually.

Despite their energy levels being very different, Porter is very tolerant of Preston's playful antics. He doesn't give in to them, but he tolerates them like any dad does with a rambunctious kid. Preston would love to have a playmate, whether in the home, at the dog park or with other active dogs of family and friends.

Both boys crate easily with a treat in their kennel although sometimes Preston may require an extra treat. What do you expect from a growing 2-year-old? Equal fans of car rides, they make exceptional co-pilots on your trips. Leash walks are not a problem once you settle in though Preston is more agreeable to a leash while Porter seems slightly offended that you would need a leash. Think twice though about walking all 140 pounds of them together. That’s a lot of dog on a leash.

Because Porter and Preston have not yet met a cat, they will not be able to go to a home with a cat.

These 2 are just your typical Labs, good natured, eager to please and happy to receive your attention. They have been very easy dogs to have around and the family that gets them is going to be extremely lucky!

Meet Sarah! She is a beautiful, loving 8-month-old black pup! She currently weighs around 45 pounds but has a little growing left to do.

Sarah has spent time in a foster home that includes other dogs, cats, and children, so she is a well-socialized pup. With cats she likes to romp and chase so only dog savvy cats can be in her forever home. But this sweet girl could join almost any family dynamic and be happy and compatible with all.

This young pup is housebroken and enjoys romping and playing outside in the yard. Like any young lab she has energy to spare, so will need a family committed to making sure she gets plenty of walks and playtime.

Sarah is also housebroken and loves belly rubs and to hang close to her humans. When her humans aren’t home, she has been crated by her foster mom. Her foster mom thinks that once Sarah settles into routine in her furever home, her new family will likely be able to stop crating her when they’re ready. She knows what items are for her to play with and which are not meant to be played with. She hasn’t tried to steal any shoes! Additionally, Sarah loves TLC, but is happy to go off to her bed and take a nap when she’s sleepy. As with any young lab, Sarah will thrive with consistency and some training.

Finally, Sarah’s foster mom shared some cute tidbits about her. Sarah has petite, pocket-lab sized, paws. Also, Sarah has enjoyed laying and playing in the kiddie pool full of beach sand in the garden at her foster home.

If this tiny gem seems like the right fit for you, please talk with your adoption coordinator.

Meet Suzy! Suzy was relinquished from the same home as Leroy due to medical needs. This is a first for us but the vet thinks and we will find out for sure soon, that she has a transmissible venereal tumor. What that means is she has a STD that can turn cancerous if not treated. With chemo, it can be treated and she will be fine. Oh my! We are not including the pics cause a girl needs her privacy. 😉

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.

Lu’s Labs would like to introduce you to a beautiful, 2-year-old male lab named Winston who is pretty much perfect by most standards. 63 pounds and is a gorgeous fox red lab, he was a little shy when picked up from the shelter, but after a week, his loveable lab personality began to show itself! His foster mom showered him with love, and he blossomed and came right out of his shell.

By all accounts, Winston would be an awesome addition to any family. He is indifferent to cats, loves people of all ages, and adores other dogs. He will share his toys, play chase or wrestle. The jury says that he is a wonderful playmate with other dogs!

This funny boy knows to only chew on his toys, but in an effort to provoke a game of chase with a human, he will nab a sock and gleefully run from you while you try to retrieve it. It is a game for him. Winston loves life and wants to share his joy with those he lives with!

Already crate trained, he likes to be coaxed into his crate with a treat or two. He will protest when the door closes, but his foster mom leaves him for 8 hours in the crate, so it is necessary, and he settles right in once he knows the drill.

Winston is working on house training and almost has it down. He knows several commands: sit, down, come. He needs some work on jumping, and at 2 he is very trainable and will work to please his people. Since he is a great treat taker, and is so gentle, he will easily work with his people as they use positive training techniques to further his training.

People are a source of love for Winston. He has attached himself to his 12-year-old human foster sister, and recently was gentle when he met a 6-year-old. He follows his foster sis everywhere and sleeps on the floor next to her at night.

A good walker with medium energy - walks and playtime are enough to tire this handsome boy out.

Winston is a loveable boy! He would add humor, fun, lots of kisses, cuddles and tons of love to any family! Who wouldn’t want to start the new year with Winston?
