ABBY

Meet Abby! Are the words lovable and laid back the words you think of when you are deciding on the dog to adopt? If so, then Abby is the girl for you.

This medium energy dog is described as the perfect dog by her current foster. She is a beautiful blonde 60-pound girl who gets along with everybody! Abby is house broken, and crate trained, although she doesn’t really need to be crated.

This girl enjoys trips to the dog park, playing fetch, swimming or just being a couch potato that makes Abby happy too. She’s known to pass the time chewing on a Kong, bone, or other interactive toys. Abby loves to retrieve the ball and she brings it back to you each time. No dogs are strangers to her and plays well with others, even cats!

Abby can’t wait for her fur-ever family. She already knows some commands too like sit, leave it, drop it, stay and come. As with any rescue dog, further training will help to make Abby a more perfect dog. Her leash manners need some fine-tuning but this smart girl likes to walk and will perfect her leash skills with additional training and reinforcement.

Scratch Abby, and you will have a permanent job! She loves to sit beside you and have her ears scratched. She will be your friend for life. “The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.” - Samuel Butler. Aren’t you ready to welcome Abby into your family?

CARLY

Meet Carly! She is a 6 month old chocolate girl who loves everyone and everything. She's good with other dogs and all people. She's a super happy, playful pup!

FOSTER UPDATE:  Carly has already met most of our babies out here with no aggression whatsoever. Plus, all of them are used to dogs. She was a little hesitant around Rosie (spotted horse) but Guinness (orange/sorrel) and Valor (bay/brown) loved her!! Magnolia (Mags) our miniature donkey really likes her! She loves dogs.  LOL


CHARLIE

Meet Charlie! He is a 10 years young and weighs 68 pounds. Charlie is a sweet older boy with lots of love to give. He is great with other dogs and loves bones and his people.  More to come as we get to know him!


DARCY

Meet Darcy! She is a 1 year old chocolate girl who weighs approximately 58 pounds. Darcy is a friendly girl who is good with other dogs and loves people. More info to come!


DEXTER & LUKE

Meet Dexter and Luke! They are a 5 years old. These boys are best friends and happiest when together so must be adopted together. Dexter weighs 97 pounds and Luke weighs 83, they are big boys! They are super sweet and friendly boys that are good with other dogs.


FRANKLIN

Meet Franklin! Franklin is a handsome stud of a chocolate lab. He is approximately 1.5-2 years old and weighs in at around 50lbs. This boy is a lover through and through.

He loves all people regardless of age or gender and loves to play with any dogs that will engage with him. He is also in-tune with doggy social cues and understands when his play becomes too much for some of the pups he interacts with.

While Franklin is much more a follower than a leader, he does have one strong leader trait; when headed out the screen door to play he lusts to be first and will talk to you about his desire to be first out the door.

This boy is the total package, he is medium energy, already knows sit, down, and come, walks well on a leash using just a collar and is game for any activities such as walks, jogging, playdates, and fetch. He also does well in the crate and rarely barks.

His favorite toys are tennis balls and tugs toys and of course he loves a bone (what dog wouldn’t?). Since his southern foster does not have cats, we do not know how Franklin would do with a feline friend.

If you are looking for an awesome active addition to add to your family who will provide you with tremendous love and joy, Franklin is your boy!

GEORGE

George has a signature move. This 2-year old medium to high energy, 70- pound boy wants to give everyone he meets a great big hug. He loves all humans regardless of age or gender, but he’s learning that he will get much more love when he has all 4 paws on the floor.

He is fully house broken and can do 8 hour stretches in his crate without complaining. George goes into his crate willingly with or without a treat. He will take any treat you give him enthusiastically and will benefit from learning to be more gentlemanly. His snack list is endless, and George is a bit of a health nut. He enjoys blueberries, strawberries, celery, and carrots – just about anything in the kitchen sink.

This lovable guy is working on his socialization skills and is learning how to meet new canine friends appropriately. George is a vocal boy and just like many of us he doesn’t like it when canine friends come bounding up and get in his face. Because of his size and his playfulness, he will do well with low energy canine companions his same size, and with slow introductions. No small dogs, cats, or other small animals for George.

Long walks are wonderful for this energetic, strong boy. He may even be a great jogging companion once he gets his leash manners down. He pulls using just a collar and his family may want to use a harness to help correct this.

George is learning to enjoy the comforts of being an indoor pet, from ear rubs to lap lounging, he wants to please his people and will benefit from training with basic commands and toning down his signature hugs.

You’ll see the softer side of this pup as he carries around his plush toys and steals your heart with his big brown eyes. Aren’t you the one George is waiting for?

When you provide him with guidance, consistency and unconditional love, you will get a best friend who will return that unconditional love tenfold!

GEORGIA AND PUPS

"Sweet Georgia is on my mind" Well Ms. Georgia what can we say. This sweet 2 year-old, 50 pound, black lab loves everyone she meets! Though she hasn’t met small children yet, she is very calm and laid back with everyone.

This mama is currently caring for her litter of 5 - Savannah, Stone, Peaches, Tybee, Macon.

She has a gentle nature and love of people and gets along well with all dogs especially her foster lab brother. She gets along with cats, turkeys and goats! This passive girl has shown no interest in pursuing critters in the yard. This makes the local squirrel population quite happy.

She goes into her crate with little protest, and does well in there for the night, but it’s best to keep toys and beds out of the kennel, unless you like confetti. Her magic confetti trick is just confined to long stays in a crate, and she has not chewed items around the house yet. 

Sweet Georgia is a medium energy gal. She walks nicely on a leash and enjoys her toys. Time in the yard or some nice walks with her people makes Georgia smile, but she can stand to learn basic commands.

She takes treats gently and has been a good Momma to those beautiful babies. She’s won over the hearts of humans down south but it’s time for her to make her journey north. Are you interested in adding this sweet Georgia peach to your family?

GEORGE #2

Meet George! He is an approximately 2 year old yellow boy who weights around 67 pounds but needs to gain a few. George is good with other dogs, cats but no chickens please! George is a tripod (missing his back left leg) but it doesn't slow him down a bit! He is happy, friendly and loves to play!


GIGI

Meet Gigi! When you hear the name Gigi does it make you think of Paris, music, high society, poise and grace? (do you want to go find the musical on Netflix now and see what we are talking about?) Well our lovely blonde 2-year-old is a sweet and submissive little pastry.

Gigi can strike a pose and give you her innocent look with those big brown eyes. She’ll make you fall in love with her and while this croissant takes a few minutes to warm up, she really does want to please her people.

Long strolls on the Champs-Elysees will be no problem as this little French fry does well on a leash. Though you may have to chase her around a bit to get her clipped in, once she’s attached she’ll go anywhere with you. She will benefit from training and learning her basic commands.

Gigi is shy at first, but the sweet macron gets along well with other dogs big and small as well as people. You can park this 53-pound Peugeot in her crate at night and while she may take some coaxing, she will settle in without protest.

Once this crepe warms up she can be quite perky and playful as well. She is a lover of canines and people a-like, her love knows no boundaries of gender both for 4 legged friends and those who walk on 2.

Could she be the perfect addition to your family? Just say oui!

GRIFFIN

Griffin is a medium sized 49-pound yellow love bug that longs to be your loyal companion. Follow-the-leader is a game he likes to play as he trails you around the house. At times, if you aren’t sure your furry companion is nearby, he will jump up on you just to make his presence known.

This sweetheart can be startled by sudden movements, but he gets along with all people and dogs regardless of gender and age, though a slower introduction will make him more at ease. He is house trained and does well with dogs, cats, and kids.

Griffin knows his boundaries and willingly goes into his crate. He probably realizes his safe space (crate) keeps him out of mischief when no one is around to make sure he’s staying off counters and chewing on dog appropriate toys. His energetic happiness makes Griffin a perfect candidate for interactive toys, running out his energy chasing tennis balls, and endlessly playing with Kongs, plush toys, and bones.

Long walks allow this boy to show off how great he is on a harness. He already knows commands such as sit, stay, and come, and will benefit from further training, but he’s already off to a great start.

He aims to please his people and his happy go lucky personality will capture your heart. Do you have room in your heart for this sweet yellow 2-3 year old?

HOPE

Hope is a beautiful purebred yellow lab. At 8-months-old, she fits her name well. She is hoping for the right family that doesn’t mind her disability. Unfortunately, this baby is blind. She was tossed out by the breeder when they discovered it. But that’s ok, because she’s a Lu’s Labs girl now and she will never be dumped again!

Hope is a sweet, playful high-energy puppy and her blindness doesn’t stop her as she maneuvers around her foster home just fine! She is a very happy little girl despite her challenges. Like any puppy she needs playtime to burn her energy. Doggy playdates are great for her, and so are interactive toys and swimming. This girl loves water. Her favorite spot in the doggy yard at her foster home is the kiddie pool. She loves to play in the hose too. While leash walks are good for her she needs to learn more leash manners and a harness will be helpful in training her to walk like a lady.

While Hope has spent some time in her crate, it’s definitely not her first choice. She can be known to verbally express her displeasure at being left alone. She will eventually settle, but then at times something will catch her attention again and she will be talking to you to let you know. To be fair she is just a baby, and crate manners can be learned. She’s working on it. She does not get into too much mischief outside of her crate as long as there is nothing that smells too good to entice her over to trash or other temptations. Remember, since she can’t see her already strong sense of smell is heightened.

This young girl will benefit from some concentrated training to work through the normal puppy behavior such as learning to take treats gently, keeping all four paws on the floor, and learning her leash manners along with her basic commands. What she lacks in discipline she more than makes up for in joy. This sweet girl is an all-around great dog. She loves people and animals. She is also very smart, when she learns her way around she will undoubtedly show you where her favorite napping spots are.

When you call her, and she finds you she is the absolute happiest pup on the planet. Do you want to be the sun she revolves around?

THE JETSON LITTER

Meet the Jetsons: George, Elroy, Jane, Judy and Rosie. They are approximately 6 weeks old.


LUCKY

LUCKY- well this is one lucky boy!! He is part of the Lu's lab family now. Lady luck had Luke in her sights when she led Lu’s Labs to him!

Lucky is a beautiful, yellow boy one year old ready for his forever home! Lucky is crate trained, but his foster mom found the crate was just his preference not a requirement. She left the door open, and he has the choice to be in or to be out. He does not chew oh items other than his toys. He is a very good boy!

Lucky loves to swim. Rumor has it while Lucky was on the lamb, he would sneak into yards and swim whenever he could. A water lab is Lucky! Lucky does need some basic training! His foster mom says he is a bit of a couch potato at heart. He walks great with just a collar! Lucky loves other dogs! He takes all comers! Lucky will play with other pups! Lucky is respectful of his family! He does not jump or crowd his family. Lucky is good with all people, regardless of age! He comes when he is called and enjoyed his spa day- bath, nails, ears and even a massage!!! In fact, Lucky will strategically place himself in the best position for his ear rubs and scalp massage!

Lucky is a little shy at first when meeting new people, but quickly invites you to join his circle! A stranger is a future friend to Lucky!. And, if he isn't perfect enough- He loves his foster Kitty! They even sleep together. He prefers sleeping with his foster mom but will sleep in his crate too. Lady Luck sure is shining on Lucky NOW!!!! Is you family the lucky one to adopt Lucky?

RIVA

Meet Riva! She is a 4 year old chocolate girl that is super sweet, good with other dogs and in typical Lab fashion, loves food! Riva weighs approximately 57 pounds. More info to come as we get to know her better.


RUSTY

Rusty is a gorgeous 70-pound, fox red/yellow, 3 year-old male Labrador.

He’s an all-around loving dog when it comes to animals, people, and play! Rusty loves car rides, tennis balls, and is always putting smiles on the faces of everyone. This gregarious boy knows no strangers and is ready to play with any dog he meets. He likes to chase and be chased. He will parallel play, wrestle, and play tug with toys. However, in true young lab fashion, if you give him a plush toy, be prepared for it to be shredded. A great way to engage him is to throw him a tennis ball!

Cats are on Rusty’s list of friends, and he adjusts his level of play accordingly. At his current foster home, he and the cats eat treats together and he even allows the cats to check his food bowl while he is eating. Sometimes he’ll whine and nudge them when they are being lazy and he’s ready to play, but he is never rough with them.

Rusty did show interest in chickens when they were flapping their wings and running around, but he observed from a distance through the protection of the fence. Can you blame him? All those feathers looked like a pretty fun toy!

With regard to crating, he will go in the crate with coaxing but protests upon entry. It’s like he knows crate means you’ll be gone awhile. But after just a few minutes of vocalization he’ll settle in until he sees you again.  He’s done well crated for up to 5 hours, but he is housebroken. When foster mom is out under 2-hours she’s trusted Rusty to roam and, so far, he hasn’t gotten into anything he wasn’t supposed to.  Depending on the home, a crate may not be needed.

This smart boy is also well on his way to learning basic commands and already knows sit and down. While he enjoys leashed walks, he is still learning how not to pull when excited, he is doing better, but could still use a bit of training and may benefit from a harness.

Could this all-around happy boy be the perfect addition to leave you with smiles for the rest of your days?

SASHA

Meet Sweet Sasha! This affectionate 1-year-old girl comes North with rave reviews from her Southern Foster mom. Sasha loves all humans though she is hesitant when meeting new adult men. Her shyness is short lived, and she quickly warms up when given a moment. There is no reluctance when it comes to playing with other canines and can hold her own playing chase and wrestling high energy dogs.

Sweet Sasha can be a little enthusiastic when it comes to grabbing up all the toys. She will borrow them from her fur buddies, but the dogs in her current home are good at sharing. She is cat curious and will chase cats but not harm them.

While she’s fully potty-trained, coaxing her into a crate when left alone will keep her out of trouble and cut down on temptations. At night she is happy to cuddle up in bed, or sleep in her crate - whichever the human prefers.

This medium energy girl is exercised with doggy playdates, walks and playing with a large assortment of toys from tennis balls to bones to tug toys. She walks well with a harness but pulls with just a collar. Easy to train, she already knows “Sit,” but will need assistance mastering leash manners, counter surfing, chewing, and barking. You know, normal puppy behaviors typical of a 1-year-old.

Sasha is a spirited beautiful girl who is a sponge for attention and is very excited to be part of a family. She has learned in a short time to trust that food, water, playtime, and love are a consistent part of her life. Sweet Sasha may be your girl!

SOOKIE

Meet Sookie! Sookie is a super sweet and obedient, 1 yr old, 55 pound yellow female. She has been good with all dogs she has been around but no cats... she thinks they are treats! Sookie is a doll and will make some lucky family very happy!


SUNSHINE

Here comes the sun! Meet Sunshine, a radiant yellow 2-3 year old girl. What a perfect name for a lab who was rescued from darkness and brought into the light. When she came to her Southern fosters she was fearful of the world and spent her first days hiding. After months of love, safety and trust-building, Sunshine has been transformed into a joyful, playful, belly-rub-lovin’ sweetheart.


This 50 pound cutie is great with all people, young or old, male or female. She does take just a moment to warm up to strangers, though. After the sniff-test, all is good! She is also an instant pal to all dogs. She enjoys playing chase and shares her toys nicely with them. She is just fine with cats and doesn’t seem very interested in them. She is a medium energy dog who loves a few walks and some off-leash play time each day.
Sunshine comes with quite an impressive resume!

She already knows the commands sit, stay and come and she is great on a leash. She is housebroken, though she had occasional accidents as she transitioned to the stable routine of her foster home. She is great in her crate and will go in willingly while her family is at work all day. She also sleeps in her crate on work nights, but enjoys sleeping on the couch on the weekends. Sunshine should be crated when she’s alone when she first joins her forever family until she learns the new routines and boundaries. 
This little Sunshine is ready to share her warmth with a loving family. Let her brighten up your cold, dark winter days!

TESSA

Meet Tessa! Has anyone heard of the rare Tessa fish? This water baby might have gills because she loves to swim and play in the water.

Super sweet and playful, Tessa is a gentle 3-year-old, 69-pound black female. She gets along well with other dogs of all sizes and enjoys people. She’s been practicing her crate manners and doesn’t take any coaxing to get into her crate.

This love will take long walks with you on the beach and walks well on a leash. But of course, she may be eyeing that water the whole time.

Your heart will warm to this sweet submissive girl when she gives you that look of love in her adoring eyes. Are you ready to add this lovely lady to your family?

VALENTINE

Valentine was found along with her 6 pups and, of course, Lu’s Labs took this family in under their wing to find homes for puppies and mom! Valentine is approximately 2 years old, and a black beauty. She weighs 44 pounds, so she is a petite little lady. Valentine’s puppies have all been adopted, and now, it is time for Valentine to find her forever home to be pampered and loved by a family who appreciates her unique personality. Valentine has been through so many transitions of late. First, moving to a home with foster family who loved her and her pups; traveling north with her pups in the same transport; watching her pups all be adopted; and now adjusting to her life as a pup with no responsibilities, except to give and receive love! As we have gotten to know Valentine she has shown herself to be leash reactive and fearful around other dogs. As Lu’s Labs wants her to be in the best environment possible, Valentine will need to be adopted to a home without other dogs. This home should also have a fenced yard. She is wonderful in the home, housebroken and crate trained, albeit with a little coaxing. Who wouldn’t try to work out an extra treat or two during the day? Valentine even prefers to eat her meals in her crate. She is smart and Valentine loves to please her family! She is great with humans of all sizes and ages! Her foster mom has been teaching her commands. She is great at “sit” and “stay”. With the consistency of a family and generous sharing of love (ie read: peanut butter), she could learn so much more! Valentine is not hugely treat motivated so there's no counter surfing! She does loves her dog food and guess what else? Valentine loves peanut butter!!!! It is such a bonus to know her favorite food when teaching her new skills! As Valentine becomes more and more comfortable in her foster home, her energy is growing as well as her interest in the world around her. This is a great indicator that Valentine will bring lots of love to her forever family. Valentine loves her people! She loves to talk to them. She will bark to let her humans know that she would like to play or be rubbed. She is a cuddly, loveable pup! But, please remember, being outside can cause her stress. She is very fearful around other dogs, so walks need to be monitored carefully. She will become very fearful and start to shake. She will bark at other dogs. However, she is learning after being initially afraid, to calm down and her confidence is growing! Valentine is a pup who needs lots of love. She will gladly return all the love given her with affection and loyalty of her own. Is your family the one for Valentine to join and be safe and comfortable forever?
