Meet Brady

Let us introduce you to Brady- not Tom Brady, but Brady. He is a 2-3 year-old, 50 pound yellow handsome male. He is fully house broken, and a chill laid back boy. Brady loves to be near his people and but is not overly snuggly. He just loves hanging out nearby while sitting on the patio, hanging out in the kitchen, or lounging in the bedroom.

He is not a fan of his crate but will go in with a little persuasion. His foster mamma says he is very good in the house and probably won’t need to be crated forever. Despite not being a crate fan, he does have a quiet resignation to it and eats his meals there.

Not just your average jock, he is really smart too! He already knows several commands - sit, down, come, and leave it. Maybe you can teach him down, set, and hike too with a little training. He walks easily with just a collar and seems to enjoy his walks.  We have not been able to cat tested him. It is also unclear if he has any real prey drive but so far none has been observed.  We have seen him in action around other dogs, and he seems to be a team player, especially around laidback dogs. Rookies are not quite his thing, he is not a fan of puppies in his face.

 In respect to his human family he seems to love everyone but has not been tested with small children or infants. His foster mom says he is so laid back she does not believe this would be a problem for Brady.

Toy? What toys are Brady's favorites? well... you guessed right BALLS! Especially his tennis balls so no problems with "deflategate" here!
    
So, Do YOU want to throw a pass to Brady??? To keep him stocked with properly inflated balls? To Bring this handsome fella into your family forever? the apply at Lu's labs!

Meet Bruno!

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

Meet Charlie

Do you have a thing for older gentlemen?  Then Charlie is the dog for you. What does it mean to love an old dog? Well, it means his rich shiny black fur may have hints of gray and the bottoms of his paw pads now a soft and wispy clump of thin white fur, but don’t let that stop you! This 68 pound 10-year-old boy is the perfect guy for you.  Charlie is a beautiful black couch potato. All the fun of a lab without the high energy of a puppy. Walks are enough for this guy.  He walks well on a leash too, using just a collar. Fully housebroken, he is crate trained, too. He will go into his crate with coaxing.  His current foster often needs to leave him crated for 4-6 hours due to work schedules.  He may bark initially in protest, but he settles quickly and is quite content in the crate.

But wait, there’s more good news when you adopt this senior boy! Charlie knows many commands like sit, come, down, stay, and heel.  Charlie will want to be your constant companion. He loves belly rubs, to have his ears scratched, and to go on car rides with you.   His southern foster describes Charlie as, “just delightful”.  This boy gets along with everyone he meets regardless of age or gender. He loves people and he doesn’t consider anybody a stranger. He likes dogs and cats too.

If Charlie could talk, he’d probably say that a slow introduction with laid back canine friends are his favorite past times. Actually though, Charlie communicates quite well, he’ll let you know when he wants to come back inside, he’ll let you know when it’s time to let him out of his crate, and he’ll let you know when it’s time to play!

“While some may call me a senior dog, I will just say that it means I have years of experience in the fine art of love and friendship,” says Charlie.  Aren’t you ready to welcome Charlie into your family?

Meet Courage!

He is approximately 4 years old and 100 pounds of Lab LOVE! Courage is good with all people he meets and other dogs! Courage's previous family took him to the Vet to be euthanized because he has a couple hot spots. The Vet was of course not willing to do this and started looking for a home for him. He hit our radar and we were happy to make him a Lu's Labs boy!

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

Foster update: Darcy is the quieter of the two Lu’s girl that I have. Darcy is very independent, energetic, likes other dog, love to hang out around you and listen well when called. She is very sociable, trainable and food motivated. She is also housebroken, and kennel trained. Darcy had some issues when she arrived like barking in the kennel or not going in the kennel. The usual trick of feeding her in he crate since her arrival has helped change that. Now she goes in by herself.

Meet Dexter & Luke

Say hello to bonded-pair Dexter and Luke! These two yellow boys are worth their weight in gold…and that’s saying something! Dexter is 97 lbs and Luke is 83 lbs. So much pup to love.

These boys love each other very much and spend the majority of their time hanging out together--they even prefer to eat their meals out the same bowl. Both boys are 5 years old, are housebroken, and have done well with kids. Additionally, both boys are great with all other dogs and have lived well with indoor cats. That said, they both seem to be a little too curious about outdoor cats, so careful introductions will be necessary. Dexter and Luke both know basic commands like sit, stay, down, and come, and they don’t need crates because they know how to leave things that aren’t theirs alone.

Dexter and Luke are similar in many ways, but also have unique personalities. Dexter is very relaxed and likes to sleep on soft blankets and get frequent belly rubs. At 97 pounds he could afford to lose a little weight, but it doesn't seem to slow him down. He recently visited a nursing home with his foster mama and some other dogs and did great. He was friendly with the residents and unphased by the wheelchairs, walkers, oxygen tanks, and other unfamiliar objects. Can you say future therapy dog?!? He is also excellent in the car and would love to accompany his future parent(s) on errands. All in all, Dexter is a velcro pup that really just wants to be by his human’s side as much as possible. 

A quiet cuddle bug, Luke loves his people once he gets to know them. This 83-pound yellow boy is shyer then his brother and was apparently not treated so nicely by one or two men in his previous life, so take off your ball cap, and slowly but confident introduce yourself to Luke, let him get to know you and trust you, take your cues from him, and he’ll be your friend for life. Luke often sticks by Dexter’s side and looks to him for confidence. Luke can deal with high energy dogs and is basically a laidback boy happy to receive ear scratches and belly rubs once he warms up to you.

Is this dynamic duo right for you? These boys are low key and are looking for a furever family that wants double the yellow love.

Meet Dee Dee!

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

Meet Frederick

Old?...Well his love for you is new every day! His face may be white, but his heart is pure gold. Frederick is a 11-year old 80-pound well-polished black diamond.  Frederick thinks old friends make the best friends, and that is what you will get with this guy!  He is a gentle soul and just wants to be with his human. Spending the day snuggling on the couch, paired with a walk or two, translates to a perfect day for Frederick.  He walks great on the leash too, using just a collar.


Frederick is house broken, and a crate isn’t even needed for this debonair guy. He loves to sleep on his dog bed at night. Plush toys are a favorite of his. This smart boy would love to show that upon he can sit, come, lay down and “leave-it” upon request.

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

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

Meet Georgia & 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?

Meet George#2

I am King George! With my royal blonde good looks, I weigh in at 65 pounds and approximately 2 years of age. I am truly unique as I have mastered life as a tripod. In other words, I have three legs. And, I am definitely regal. .

Three legs don’t slow me down: I run, walk, jump, and play just like any other dog. With medium energy I prefer a couple of walks and play time each day. Humans adore me, and I them. It doesn’t matter what shape, size, or age – I am a friendly, playful fellow, but also gentle.

While I haven’t yet mastered any commands, I don’t need a crate. I am house trained and don’t chew items that are not my own. Food and fun is my motto and I gently take treats. Favorite toys include tennis balls, tug toys, and bones. Please know, I am always eager to learn new things. Teaching me basic commands is an excellent way for us to build a closer relationship and for me to have extra treats. As a king, I am used to treats. .

I have fun playing gently with my 4-year-old human friend and I have been introduced to the female canine foster siblings of the house, but not the male (I hear he doesn’t like other kings in his territory.) It is important that a king be mindful of the company he shares. Canine friends and people are great companions for me especially when introduced slowly. .

>Please refrain from introducing me to cats, ducks, chickens and other feathered friends. They are not my loyal subjects and as such I’d prefer them kept out of my court. They seem much more like things to chase or catch to me. After all, if I had my fourth leg I would probably be a royal hunter. You will know if any of these types of creatures are nearby when I’m around, and I will gladly protect you from these beasts and sound the alarm. .

As a king, proper pampering is in order. I require frequent belly rubs, ear scratches, and all manner of attention. I can be contained in a small area while you are away. I am very careful to mind the rules of the castle. .

I will walk on a leash with a collar, nicely. But, again, working together to perfect the finer points of a walk is another way to cement our relationship. Particularly, if more treats are involved. .

Foster mom says I am a joy to have around. She is so happy to have started me on this path to my future home. She assures me Lu’s Labs is the best place to find the best castle for me.<

True love comes in a mixed bag of particulars. I offer my majestic heart to you. It is my fondest wish that you reciprocate in turn!

Meet Peggy

Hi! My name is Peggy, but you can call me Petit Peggy the Pocket Lab! That’s right, at 45 pounds, I am a cute little black lab and I can almost fit in your pocket. Okay not really, but you may want to keep me near your pocket because I’m a bit of an escape artist, and when left to my own devices I get into a little trouble. What? I can’t help it! I’m a young 2-3 year-old mischievous girl and I love attention!

Foster Dad says I’m sweet and snuggly, I’m a bit of a Velcro dog, I follow you wherever I can, and want to play. In the morning I’m a bit handsy as I paw at you to wake up and take me out to play. I’m most energetic in the morning. I guess I don’t need any coffee.

I’m good with ALL people – young and old, male and female – but I can be a little shy around strangers, so please take new introductions slowly. Once I warm up though I’m a love muffin. So much so, that I don’t really want you to pet or play with other dogs. Oh, I get along with other dogs, it’s just that I want aaaaalllll the attention. But really, I do like all other dogs, I like to play chase and be chased, and I like to wrestle, but I’m not so great with sharing my toys. And oooooooh I looooove my toys! You can give me tennis balls, and interactive toys, and plush toys, and tug toys, and Kongs and BONES! I’m happy now just thinking about all those things!

And food? Forget about it. I WANT ALL THE FOOD! So make sure you feed me away from other dogs. Maybe feed me in my crate… I don’t love my crate… I might whine a little bit when I go in there… but I will settle in. If there is food involved I’m sure I’ll get more used to it. And truly it’s probably the best place for me if you are going to leave me alone. I don’t want you to be mad at me for chewing on something that’s not mine. What can I say, I’ve got medium energy with bouts of high energy. Play with me, tucker me out, and you’ll have a pup on your hands that wants to snuggle. I’m great on a leash and a harness and walk well. I even know a few commands like sit and come… I really and truly want to make you happy so please invest in training for me, I am smart, and I will learn to settle down, not talk so much, and follow more commands! But cats… I don’t think I will ever learn to love cats. Other small critters better look out. Well…I’m a lab!

Pet me and I’ll be your friend forever you’ll be enthralled by my soft, velvety ears. I’m already a good girl, but with some training and love in a forever home I will be a great girl! Will you be my forever home?

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.

Riva is very independent and energetic. She’s good with other dogs. She can jump 4-foot gates in the house in just a second. She’s learning how to take treats gently from your hand before she was eating the treat with your hand! Just kidding but almost. She is sociable and trainable. food motivated, potty trained and kennel trained. Riva like Darcy barked in the kennel or won’t go in the kennel but not anymore. By feeding her in the kennel she has learned to go inside the kennel with no problem.

Meet 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.

his 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!

Meet Smoky

Smoky is my name and loving is my game! I am a love bug that’s for sure - so much so that my kisses can sometimes be, shall we say, too much! I don’t mean to use my teeth and I don’t mean anything by it, I’m still pretty gentle… but small children and toddlers may have to be careful around me. I don’t always know when my teeth are making contact. I’m also a pretty big boy at 65 pounds and I’m not always very careful, so without watching me, I may not mean to do it, but I could knock a small person down in my overzealousness to getting some love. Love bug, remember?

I think my name came from the fact that I’m a big chocolate fluffy two-year-old. Maybe if you put a ranger hat on me I might look like I can fight fires. But really…I can’t. Sorry. Not a fire dog, or a bear. I do like to expend my medium energy doing things like playing with balls, bones, and Kongs. Crates are a comfortable place for me, and I will go in for naps without protest. So far, this indoor life is suiting me, and I haven’t had any accidents.

Overall, I’m pretty cute, and just like any dog my age, training will make me a super duper amazing dog. So, call the fire trucks and put out the fires, I’m smoky and you are going to love me!

Meet Sookie

Hello! My name is Sookie, and the rescuer who named me probably loves the HBO show True Blood. I mean I do see why they named me after Anna Paquin’s character, after all I have lovely blond hair just like she does, and I am quite beautiful, or that’s what everyone says when they meet me.

I haven’t had a chance to watch the show myself, so I hope that Ms. Paquin is just as sweet as I am in real life. I would assume someone half fairy would be sweet, right? If you like the show I will be more than happy to watch it with you. Or if you don’t know it, like me, we can binge watch it together…do you have a soft couch I can curl up on? I’m fine with the floor as well, just as long as you want to give me a nice warm home to call my forever place.

I’m only two-years-old and 52 pounds but I am a very happy girl. If you have other canine pals for me that’s even better because I get along well with other dogs. It’s a warm summer, so take me to the water. I love it and will happily plunge right in. Games, did you say games? I don’t play head games, just dog games – I like fetch, I enjoy bones, balls, and Kongs.

When I’m tired I walk straight into my crate for nap time and Lu’s Labs says I appear to be house trained. Take me for daily walks. I need some activity because I do have medium energy. Lu’s Labs also thinks I would be great with kids.

Cats haven’t been on my radar yet, so I can’t really tell you if I would think of them as a toy, a friend, or a snack. I think my main difference between Sookie on TV and the real Sookie (I’m the real Sookie, I mean Anna P. is just a character) is that I can’t hear other people’s thoughts so I’m not awkward around them. I get along very well with people, especially when they show me affection. (Yes, I’ve been reading her wiki so I know who I’m named after.)

Ah but here are some characteristics we can probably safely say we share. We are both loyal to our friends, and exhibit that down-home kindness of the deep south. As you are trying to find the right Lu’s Lab to be your forever companion, please think about making me that fairy wish, and I promise to be your loyal friend.

Meet 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!

Meet 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?

Meet Willow!

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