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 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 doesn't chase the resident cat so she is okay with feline friends. 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!

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? 💗.

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

Meet Martie, the gorgeous 6-year-old chocolate gal from Alabama. This dream of a pup weighs in at 71 pounds. Martie could be a permanent part of your party.

Easy-going girl, Martie is happy, healthy, and housebroken! She loves leashed walks and is good on the leash. She also loves playdates with other dogs and gets along with everyone. She doesn’t always want to share her favorite ball or bone during playtime, but that’s understandable considering some of this is all new to her after her life as a stray. Balls and bones were likely not in ample supply. Toys and bones aren’t needed because the pups always have plenty of fun chasing and sniffing, anyway!

Martie lives with foster brothers and sisters of the canine, feline and human variety and is sweet with all. Her feline siblings were initially getting some extra exercise when Martie arrived, but things have settled nicely, and Martie has quickly learned to live harmoniously with them.

Her human foster sibling who is 4 years old, doesn’t mind if Martie bumps into her or plays rambunctiously, since she’s lived with big dogs her whole little life. Martie’s forever family should understand that this comes with the territory of big dogs, and supervision will be needed. Martie can, of course, be worked with and trained, but little ones should be dog savvy enough to understand that getting knocked down or bounced past by an excited 70-pound dog is not the end of the world, or even the end of playtime. That all being said, Martie is a medium energy girl and will not be running wild day and night!

Martie is crate trained and does well in her crate. This is important, at least for now, because Martie can not resist helping herself to any snacks she may find - so it is up to us to keep human and cat foods unattainable to her. She is happiest when fed separately from others.

Martie is a sweet and obedient girl with just the right amount of spice to keep her hilarious. She has been known to test a boundary or two with her foster mom, just to see what she can get away with. Sassy! But foster mom keeps firm to her rules and tells Martie like it is, and this works very well. Most dogs thrive with clear and consistent boundaries and Martie is no exception. She takes verbal corrections well.

Most any person or family would find Martie to be a wonderful match and companion. The perfect mix of sugar and spice, playful and chill, and an all-around great dog to love you for as long as you both shall live!

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!

1/17/19 Update on Porter and Preston: The boys have been with their northern foster for a couple of days now. Some of the things we've learned is they love to meet other dogs, they enjoyed their trip to the firehouse with foster dad and lapped up the love from all the people they met, but cats...not so much. The boys met cats and the verdict is in they are a no for a home with cats.

3/2/19 Update on Porter and Preston: We’ve learned so much about Porter and Preston since they arrived north! These two are full of personality. Preston – the younger of the two – loves to play fetch and has a great time with his toys. Porter’s favorite pastime is playing with Preston. Make no mistake, Porter is a people person too and firmly believes that he’s a lap dog and a spooner. Preston? He’s likes a warm embrace and will lean his head against you when you go in for some love.

The two boys enjoy their meal times, but these gentlemen are not counter surfers and wouldn’t think of stealing from the table. They’ve also picked up many commands since coming north. Preston’s learned sit, lay down, shake, high-five, and roll over since January. Porter already mastered sit before he arrived, but he's also learned lay down and roll over. The boys are great on leash and can be walked together. They also crate easily. Porter loves his Preston and likes to be near him at all times. He puts the bond in bonded pair, accompanying Preston to the vet even when he doesn’t need to go himself. These two are quite a lovable pair!

Meet Stewie! He is approximately 4 years old and is about 65 pounds. Stewie is good with other dogs and may be good with dog savvy cats. We saw him in a shelter around the time that our sweet Stu lost his battle with Cancer. When this happened with Stu, we thought it would be a great tribute to him to name our next sweet yellow boy Stewie, but he was still under stray hold at the shelter. Drum roll... Fast forward one week, his stray was up and he was ours! AND we discovered that the shelter named him Stewie, without ANY idea that we had the intentions of naming this boy the same name! Talk about destiny, Stewie was exactly where he needed to be. Welcome to Lu's Labs Stewie!

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. 😉

Meet Suzy

Female/Age TBD


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.
