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 Boudreaux! This sweet Mississippi boy is approximately 2 years old and weighs around 60 pounds. Boudreaux's story is one we sadly hear often. Got as a puppy, got big and got put outside. Boudreaux has spent the last year and a half of his life chained to a tree in yard. (Picture included of him chained life) Someone spotted him and asked the owners if they could take him. They were happy to let him go. The nice lady that found him took him in, got him all vetted and started looking for a rescue for him. We are so happy that he hit our radar and we could make him a Lu's Lab! Since Boudreaux has been in his foster home, he has really embraced being an inside dog and it's like he never lived outside! Here is what his foster mom has to say about her time with him so far: We have enjoyed Boudreaux so much! He has lots of love and is brilliant! In the few weeks we have had him he’s learned to sit and fetch. He loves my other dogs(and one tries to eat him every time she gets the chance lol) she’s old and short so it’s very comical. Boudreaux just takes a step or two back and looks at her like she’s crazy, lol. He shares all his toys and treats. He will make someone a very wonderful pet. Since he has been with us inside, he has had no accidents. He goes outside to do his business every time. I spend several hours every day playing with his rope pull toys and throwing the ball for him so he gets plenty of exercise. He is crate trained and stays in his crate without a peep. We are so happy for the next part of his life to begin!!!

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? 💗.

Marshall is a 60-pound, 4-year-old, HAPPY chocolate boy who loves attention and is GREAT with other dogs! Although dog playdates are truly his favorite activity, leashed walks are a close second. Marshall’s long legs and athletic physique make him uniquely qualified for classic k9 sports like running, jumping, and swimming – all good ways to channel his high energy!

Despite his enthusiastic nature, he loves to chill out and cuddle with his humans (or other dogs!) when it is time for relaxation. Foster mom says that Marshall followed her everywhere and was one of the easiest fosters she’s ever had! Sit, down, leave it, and come are some commands he has already mastered! He even knows some hand signals for basic commands. Continued reinforcement will help him really hone his skills, as well as his leash manners.

This busy boy goes in his crate easily and only barks in his crate when humans are in the house but out of sight – he just loves his humans so much! He has already come a long way with learning not to bark with the help of his foster mom. He’s unknown with cats, so can’t go to a home with them.

Some perks of Marshall: 1) His recall is great – he comes right when he’s called in the yard or house! 2) He is great at catching any and all flying bugs. 3) He LOVES ice cubes – perfect for training on upcoming summer days! 4) He is amazing at fetch, and never jealous when another dog gets to the ball first. He prances back ready for round two!

This hunk of chocolate is a house-trained, crate-trained dream who will be a delightful addition to his forever family! If you are looking for a confirmed sweetheart who loves to be close to his humans, and cuddles in bed then talk with your Adoption Coordinator.

Hey everybody! My name is Roxy and I’d love to be your new BFF (beautiful forever furbaby). I’m a stunning black lab mix, approximately 4-5 years old, around 65-pounds and I have the most soulful eyes you’ve ever seen. You can just refer to me as ‘Foxy Roxy’! *wink*

I would also be a great BFF in the more widely known sense—best friend forever. I love all people, to include those who are both old and young and everybody in between. I like to play and ride in cars but I’m happy just to sit beside you while you read or watch TV and I’ll never tell anyone a single secret you share with me. I love, love, love being loved on!!

As for play, I like kongs and bones, leashed walks, and play dates with other dogs. I willingly share my toys with other dogs and I’m even good with cats. Actually, I ignore them but that’s only fair since they aren’t usually that interested in me. Foster mom says I have a medium energy level and an easygoing disposition and, since she smiles at me a lot, I just know she thinks I’m wonderful.

I’ve already told you I like to ride but you might also be interested to know that I’m house trained and crate trained, although you may have to coax me into the crate. I’m okay with being crated for short periods but the really good news is that I’m very well behaved even when uncrated. I have been very respectful of other’s belongings and foster mom says that there have been no issues when I have been left free. Actually, I’ve been such a good dog that I am occasionally allowed to sleep on the couch or in the bed with Foster mom and given her no reason to complain.

I walk well on a leash with just a collar and I know how to sit. I do need to work on my other commands but I’m a smart girl and I know it won’t take me too long to learn everything if you are patient and willing to spend a little time with me.

All in all, I’m a super loving girl who is well behaved and ready for a home I can call my own. If you are looking for a BFF in every sense of the word, make sure you ask to meet Roxy (me!) I’m looking forward to meeting you and excited to start my new life.

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 Tank! He is approximately 2 years old and weighs around 86 pounds. That's right, 86 pounds, this hunk didn't get his name for being small. :) Tank is a love! As you can see, his tongue is also as big as he is. He loves people and is good with other dogs. His favorite things so far are people, running around the yard and getting butt scratches! :)

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.

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.

Have you been looking for love in all the wrong places? Try Lu’s Labs! My name is Woody and I'm an approximately 3-year old lab mix, 60-ish pounds, black, with the most soulful brown eyes you could ask for. Best of all, I'm looking for a lifelong commitment! In short, I like long walks, sunsets and cuddle times but for more information, keep reading!

I have a winsome personality and I LOVE people of all ages. I am a very calm and adaptable dog. If you want to romp and play, I want to romp and play. If you want to sit back and relax with a book and some TV, I’m right there beside you. If you want to go for long walks, I’m ready and I do well with just a leash and a collar--although I might sometimes pull just a bit. (I’m still learning!) I am house trained and crate trained but I enjoy sleeping in or near the bed with my foster mom when she lets me. I willingly go into my crate and am used to being in for hours at a time when my foster family is out. I love toys—plush toys, tug toys, kongs, bones—but I have been very respectful of my foster family’s belongings. It’s not bragging if what you say is true and I can report that my foster mom has said very good things about me! OK, I’m bragging a little.

Not only do I love all people, I love other dogs! I am typically a medium energy dog and I have had great fun on doggy play dates. My favorite day would consist of leashed walks with my human, a play date at the dog park and some snuggle time in the evening. I can’t think of anything more perfect! I have never met a cat so no feline friends in my forever home.

I was kind of on my own before I became a Lu’s Lab and I have worked very hard to become a good companion animal. I have learned to sit on command and, if you have time to work with me, I know I could learn lots of other good stuff. I am a very good dog and I seem to take everything in stride. My foster mom described me as ‘laid back and playful’. She smiled when she said it so I think that’s a good thing. *wink*

If you would like to meet me, just ask! I really want a chance to be part of your life and I’ll be waiting for your call!!! Love, Woody
