He is approximately 7 months old and weighs about 55 pounds and still growing! Asher is great with other dogs and loves every human he meets! He has your typical 6-month-old Lab energy and loves to run and play! Asher is also a big fan of getting love and attention from his people. With that lab energy comes the need to exercise. Asher would do great with a dog playmate, a yard to romp in, and/or an active family. He is housebroken and sleeps in his crate. He also has responded well to spending time in his crate during the day when his foster family isn’t home. It will likely be best for Asher to be crated in his new home, at least in the beginning. You know how it can go if young, energetic dogs are left to their own devices! The good news is Asher has no shortage of ways he likes to play, so he’ll stay busy with all types of activities. He’s happy to go for long walks, jogs, doggy playdates, or fetch sessions. He loves all types of toys, including balls, tug toys, kongs, bones, and more. He’s happy to play with any human or dog that comes his way and is good with all people. He’s also friendly with strangers, although they quickly go from strangers to friends.
At his young age, Asher will require training but is already well on his way to learning his commands. He knows sit, down, leave it, drop it, and come. Help from a trainer and practice with his forever family will help him to solidify those commands and break some of his puppy habits like leash pulling and jumping when excited.

Asher’s foster family had kind words to say about him, making it clear how special he is. They said, “Asher is a special young dog. Asher loves to play with other dogs and people alike. Asher loves bubbles and chasing them. Loves going and running after any toy. He will potty on command and is crate trained. Sometimes he likes to bark and remind you he is there but will settle after about 10 minutes. Asher also loves to snuggle with you on the couch.”

What more could you ask for in a gorgeous and energetic young lab and future best buddy?

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.

Update 1/22/19: Billy continues to gain confidence in his foster home. He’s a bit of a man’s man and has a closer bond with his foster dad but foster mom is a close second. Don’t let this shy boy fool you into thinking he isn’t loads of fun to be around. Billy has taken on the role of security patrol, especially in the morning. He wakes up with his foster mom and keeps her close by. They go downstairs together and he follows her patiently while she gets ready for work. If he hears a passerby outside or if there’s a delivery, he will let his humans know with a quick alert bark. This boy is smart, he knows the package outside could be new toys!

Billy likes to play with stuffed animals every so often. He will pick them up, shake them back and forth and chew on them for a few minutes before relaxing on the floor. Playing with toys is exhausting for this little guy.

Billy is learning sit and working on the stay command. Like most young dogs, Billy is learning self control and patience. He is also learning it’s ok to let his foster brother be the first one out the door for potty breaks. But once they are outside, Billy follows his foster brother around and sniffs all the terrific smells he finds. Billy is an easy breezy sidekick who just wants to be loved.

Meet Buster! Buster is the last puppy of the Rugrats litter that Lu's Labs took in a couple of months ago. The owners of Buster's mom decided when she had her pups that they wanted to keep one. They recently decided that they didn't have time for him and reached out to us to see if we could find Buster a great home like all of his siblings. We of course said yes. So Buster, while not the most Labby looking (we do know he IS part Lab though!) pup is now a Lu's Labs boy! :)

Buster is a gorgeous brown and white, 4-month-old, 30-pound package of excitement and energizing love! A puppy through and through Buster loves to play all day outside is looking forward to doing that for years to come with his new forever family! Once done with all the playtime and ready to recharge, Buster prefers to snuggle in with you in bed for the night and stay close. Excited to make new friends, human, young and old, or other fur friends like cats, Buster is happy to share his toys and when feeling silly he will back up to you and sit on you! A loving lap dog in training!

With loving eyes and the always awesome puppy breath, Buster is always looking forward to long walks and lots of playtime outside! As a curious and adventurous puppy, Buster is always ready to explore and make the most of every moment! He loves to be mischievous and counter surf! He goes in the crate well, but like all littles, he likes to let you know that he is still there and will bark until he settles downs. Buster is a total doll, a total puppy package! He is looking for a forever family who is looking forward to helping him grow up into the amazing, loyal and loving Lab he knows he will be! As with all puppies, Buster is no exception, patience when training and a watchful eye is needed and readily accepted by Buster! If you are ready for a fun loving, spunky, tag wagging, goofball, Buster is the puppy for you!!

Hi all! My name is Chet and I am a good-looking, 5-year-old, blonde hunka, hunka, burning love, who likes to play tug and fetch. I am 106 lovely pounds of cuddles and snuggles, and I still need to gain some weight, so I am going to be even bigger! I am comfortable being in my crate and willingly go in when needed. Foster mama has a cat and I love to chase him around the house. I don’t mean any harm, I just love to play!

I am super cool in a family with no dogs, or if the dogs are not dominating. I love me some laid-back pups! I’m better suited for a family with older children and I love playing with Kongs, bones and tennis balls! I also enjoy taking walks, swimming, and jogging. I already know the commands: sit, stay, come, and down! I do need help working on walking on a leash without pulling, and my adopter(s) should be strong enough to handle all 106 lbs of my enthusiasm! I do have a tendency to counter surf and jump, but I know with the right family, patience, and yummy training treats, I can learn! If you are ready to add a big loveable guy to your pack, then I am the one for you!

Hi – I’m Danny! I’m a 10-12 month old, 40lb, yellow love bug! I make friends easily with EVERYONE, whether human or dog, of all sizes and genders. I’m not sure how I feel about cats so can’t go to a home with them for now. I enjoy going for a jog, walking on my leash, and playing fetch, but really doggie playdates are my favorite way to play and exercise to get out the moderate amount of energy I tend to have. I haven’t met a toy I don’t like yet – tennis balls, tug toys, and plush toys are some I especially enjoy though! Before going to my foster home, I had no idea there were so many fun toys out there, but I’ve loved learning how to play with them.

Did I mention yet that I’m really smart? I’ve already learned some basic commands like sit, down, leave it, and come, but am eager to learn more with some training! Be patient with me though – I’m still just a pup so need some help working on not jumping or being mouthy when I get excited.

I’m not just smart – I’m super sweet too! Cuddling on the couch and being held by my humans is another one of my favorite things. Foster mom says she’s going to miss me a lot, but that my forever family will be getting the sweetest dog ever! And, a bonus piece of fun I bring to the table is that I love to chase bubbles – just blow a bunch and I’ll have the best time ever!

The crate is a safe space for me and I spend time in there quietly when I need to, plus I’m fully potty-trained. I’m an easy, happy go lucky pup with lots of love and kisses to give to my forever family!

Dorrie is a gorgeous black female, approx 8-9 years old and 65lbs. Dorrie was adopted from us two years ago but her owners decided that while she was exactly what they asked for, she is now too much for them. You see, Dorrie LOVES to fetch! It’s her favorite thing and she is a master fetcher. She doesn’t care if your favorite show or favorite team is on tv. She is a clear communicator and will bring you the ball and wait patiently for you to go outside with her. Still waiting to hear all the terrible things she did to be returned? Ya, we are too. But this is about Dorrie, so let’s keep going. Of course, we welcomed Dorrie back with open arms.

Transitions are always difficult for a dog and it’s heart breaking to think the family she knew and loved for the past two years is now out of her life forever, and instantly from her perspective.

When Dorrie arrived to me last night, she was stressed and nervous. She immediately reacted to my cat, who thinks all dogs should be greeted with a high pitched MEEEOOOW right in their face. Thirty minutes later, she met my dog who was thrilled to have another friend. He tried to impress her with his full body wiggle, play bow and toy offering. Dorrie was not happy with his shenanigans; in fact, she was so snarky with him, he backed up and left her alone for the rest of the night. Dorrie spent the remainder of the night downstairs in her crate with the door open, while the rest of us stayed upstairs.

This morning was MAGICAL! Dorrie was the first one to wake up and she came upstairs with a full smile and lots of tail wags. I could hear her tail hitting the wall as she climbed the stairs. I tried to contain my excitement. After just one night, Dorrie was ready to spend time with us! She was great with my dog this morning, they went outside together and spent time in the same room while I got ready for work. She was fine with my cats, too!

More updates to come as we get to know this sweet girl!
3/22/19 Dorrie continues to be one of the easiest fosters I’ve ever had. She is independent and hangs out on her own but will come and check on me every 30 mins or so. She comes over, nudges me for affection, sometimes offers kisses and then goes back to what she considers a comfy spot.

She loves playing fetch and will bring me a ball when she wants to play. After 4-5 times of fetching, she takes the ball with her and finds a comfy spot to relax... are you seeing a pattern here?

She doesn’t mind new foster dogs coming in and out but she prefers they not kiss her on the face. 😂Afterall, she’s a lady 🤷🏻‍♀️. She and Seymour have an agreement, he doesn’t kiss her and they share all toys and bones. One of my cats adores her and rubs on her when she lays down. Dorrie doesn’t mind one bit.

At night, Dorrie sleeps where she wants to; sometimes it’s her crate, the sofa, the dog bed or the bench in the kitchen. During the day when I’m at work, she stays in my bed for the majority of the day. She’s a sneaky little girl and runs down to greet me after a long day at work but she always acts like she hasn’t been in my bed. 😉.

Do you have a family looking for an easy breezy dog who needs a little bit of space and a whole lot of love? 💗.

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.

Say hello to Ruben!!

Reuben is a Labrador who has been waiting for a family to love and snuggle! After roaming the streets of Louisiana, he joined Lu’s Labs to have a slice of the good life!

Reuben is approximately 2-3 years old, and this big yellow boy tips the scales at 80 pounds. He is a love bug! After being with his foster family, Rueben has learned some good habits. He is crate trained, he has not yet chewed on anything other than his toys, and, Reuben is half way to being housebroken. This is a lab who is as smart as he is beautiful!

Reuben likes a slow introduction to new dogs, but after that, his circle will widen to include all newcomers. Reuben loves people, too. He is not particular; he loves them all! Young, old, short, tall! Reuben likes to be in a position to receive all the love that needs to be given.

His greetings can be enthusiastic, so Reuben needs to be reminded “4 on the floor.” He is only trying to express the love he feels for you and hopes you will return to him. A little training with his new family will help him remember to offer a more proper greeting.

As of now, Reuben prefers dining alone. We are guessing that food was probably not something he could count on regularly, but he does allow foster mom to put her hand in his bowl while eating. If there are other dogs in the house, it would be best to start off by feeding them separately.

Reuben is a medium energy dog. He does well with a couple of walks and off leash running, either in a yard or dog park. He is a fan of tennis balls, tug of war toys, Kongs, and bones. Reuben is an expert at the “sit” command. He would also benefit from training for other basic commands as well as jumping and mouthiness. Reuben pulls a bit when walking with a collar and leash.

Reuben is by all counts a true lovey lab boy. He is ready to be welcomed by a forever family! Is yours the lap, he will climb into?

Meet Russell! He is approximately 2 to 3 years old and weighs around 65 pounds. Russell is great with other dogs and good with dog savvy cats. He is also very friendly with people and likes to give hugs even though he's supposed to keep all 4 paws on the ground, he's a work in progress! Russell is great at giving paw and is eager to please and get affection. He's a super sweet boy!Meet Shelby! She is approximately 10 weeks old and weighs around 20 pounds. Sadly Shelby ended up in a shelter in Louisiana with her brother and 2 sisters. They were all adopted and she was left all alone there. Luckily, our volunteers were able to spring into action and get her out of that scary place. Shelby is not just adorable but sweet and calm for such a young puppy. Although as she adjust to being out of the shelter and settles into her new foster home with lots of love and 4 legged foster siblings, I'm sure that will change. :)

Meet Smoky!! He is approximately 2 to 3 years old and weighs 85 pounds. Smoky has been great with dogs of both genders and all sizes. He is respectful of them and is fine to do his own thing if they aren't up for playing or hanging out. He is also very friendly with people and will let you know with a nudge or a bark when he wants your attention. Smoky is reported to be well mannered by the shelter staff and an all around awesome Lab! More to come as he settles into his foster home!

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. The links to each are provided below. 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! http://hhpdp.org/ https://www.facebook.com/HappyHoundsPDP/

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
