Meet Baylor! Baylor is a sweet tripod, around 6-7 yrs old. He was hanging out at a park in TX for weeks before animal control picked him up. He is good with other dogs, loves people and thinks 3 paws are just as good as 4!
Meet Blu! Blu is 2 yrs, 63 lbs. and good with dogs, cats, kids ... EVERYONE! Blu has a calm temperament and is a sweetheart! He has some hair loss around mouth and eyes which vet said is probably food allergies. We are working on that!
Meet Boomer! Boomer is a super sweet, 2 yr old, 62 pound black male. He is medium energy and good with cats and dogs!
Boone is an 82 pound, 1.5 yr old LOVE! OMG... THOSE EARS!!! Love, love, love! More info to come on Boone as we get to know him!
Meet Boston! He is an approximately 5 month old yellow boy who hails from New Boston, TX (hence his name). Boston was found shivering under a car in Texas during their cold spell and luckily had a nice lady take him in. All efforts to find his family were exhausted to find this boy's family and the Vet determined he's probably been on his own for a while. Luckily the Vet knew about Lu's Labs and recommended his finder call us. We of course couldn't say no to this sweet boy! Boston does have some demodex mange (this is NOT contagious!) which is why his face looks a little funny right now. He's being treated and his fur will grow back in no time and he's going to be gorgeous! He's a sweet and happy little boy that likes everyone he meets!
Hello, my name is Browning, and like the name, I am a chocolate boy looking for the right home. Lu’s Labs has said they can help in that department. In fact, they have already helped in a great many departments: finding a foster mom to love me, some foster siblings to play with, and a nice yard to play my favorite game of fetch. So, I am convinced this is the path to a loving, forever home! I am about 6 years old. I weigh, at present, 56 pounds. I hope to put some more weight on very soon. I am working on finishing all my meals. And, I do like the occasional treat as well! Living with this family requires manners that I am working on. I can sit on command, and I can drop it on command. The second command does come in handy, as figuring out what to chew on and what not to chew on is gosh darn hard, sometimes! Sometimes, I make a mistake. I am always real sorry; but crating me when you can’t keep an eye on me is a good idea, initially. I really, really want to start out on the right paw with my new family! I may protest a bit when put in the crate. But, it is for the best while we get to know one another. Did I mention that my cheeks are very soft? They need lots of attention. So, if you require extra rubbing experience, I am the chocolate love pup for you! I can offer lots and lots of opportunities to rub my cheeks, my ears, anywhere you like, to be truthful! It is a good way for us to become real, lifelong friends! I like walks around the neighborhood. It is a wonderful way to show off how handsome I am. I will pull a bit. But, please, gently teach me that it is not a good habit, and I will do my very best to not pull. I am pretty much housebroken. But, if in the crate longer than 8 hours, I may have an accident. That is a long time to wait to go outside. So, maybe it is a little understandable. I also sometimes mark my territory. You know, for a guy who is a little unsure of what his territory is, it is not an unusual trait. I hope my forever home has a nice yard, so I can mark that area and feel secure. Marking is a way of announcing myself to the neighborhood. It also reinforces to me where I feel safe. I do like to feel safe. And speaking of safe; what is it with that thing called “thunder”! Lordy! It happens with no warning, no time for preparation, and it is loud! I do not like thunder. I guess you can also say that I do not like loud noises in general. It makes me anxious not to know what to expect next. Other than that, I am not a particularly anxious type. You know, a guy just wants to know where he belongs; where he is cherished and loved. That is why I hooked up with this Lu’s Labs group. They understand that security and safety is important. They take such good care of so many lab guys and gals. I know they will shop around to find the best home for me, too! Well, here I am. Browning. I have lots of love to give! Might I be the chocolate kiss you need in your life?
BUD AND MILLIE
Hi everyone! My name’s Bud and this is my sister Millie. We are the bestest of friends and ohhhh so bonded. We were part of a juvenile detention center program that dissolved and we found ourselves without a home or jobs. But some awesome folks reached out to Lu’s Labs and now we are safe and looking for our forever home. As I mentioned previously, we are very bonded. I love my sister sooo much and she loves me just the same. You will notice if you take me out without her, she will cry and vice versa. I say this because you need to know that we NEED to be together! Here’s a bit more about us. I weigh in at 101 lbs. Yes, I am a big boy, but I am 5 yrs old and have learned the finer points of house training. My sister Millie, though a bit smaller, weighing in at 80 lbs, also has awesome home manners and aims to please. We are never crated in our foster home and there’s no need, because we are awesome. If we were looking for our ideal forever home, we would love a fenced yard. Being part of a juvenile dentition center program, we spent a lot of time inside the detention center, not so much time in the “yard” if you catch my drift. So with that said, we LOVE the yard. We like to be outside hanging out, rolling in the grass, playing with toys like tennis balls and playing with furry friends. And even though we are on the larger side, we are oh so gentle with our feline companions. One of our feline foster siblings has joined our pack and our foster Dad calls us the three amigos! Also, did I mention, we are both 5 yrs old, right at our prime. We are through those pesky puppy years but have so much life left to live. Millie and I both enjoy exercise and play and need a good amount of it each day so that we are complete love bugs in the house. After a run around the yard, we love to curl up with our human friends and just hang. We pride ourselves on being mild mannered inside. We also love to greet you with tails wagging when you come home from a long day at work. They always say two is better than one, right? While I know you think we are darn near perfect, there is one thing we are working on, walking on a leash. We both still pull because we are just sooooo excited to be outside with all the smells and goodness that the world beyond the detention center has to offer. But we are working on it. We also need a little refresher on some basic commands, but no biggie, we are eager to learn. So if you are looking for two nice pups to be your pride and joy for years to come, consider us, Bud and Millie, and apply at Lu’s Labs today.
CARSON AND CALLIE
Meet Carson and Callie! They are approximately 1 year old. Carson is the chocolate and Callie is the black. They are sweet dogs that are BFFs! They are good with other dogs and friendly with every person they have met! More info to come!
EBONY & IVORY
Meet Ebony and Ivory! Ebony is a black male and Ivory is a black and white female. They are both about 55 pounds and 1 yr old. We were alerted about Ebony and said we would take him and then found out he was surrendered with his sister, Ivory. We don’t leave family behind so of course we took both! At this time we are unsure if they are bonded or not... Time will tell!
In the move Shrek 2, Princess Fiona said, “I want what any princess wants, to live happily ever after…” and that’s how her story begins. Fiona was rescued and she is now a Lu’s Lab ready to live happily ever after with her forever family. Fiona is a 1 ½ year old beautiful yellow Southern princess. Fiona is a medium sized girl, and weighs about 45 pounds.
She was found as a stray, and is clearly a smart girl. When she was first found, Fiona had no manners. She is learning quickly how nice it is being a member of a family and living an indoor life. She is mostly housebroken, yet with any young dog she may have an accident from time to time if her humans are not attending to her cues. Although Fiona just wants to be with her humans at all times, she will go into her crate with coaxing. She has a lot of puppy in her so interactive toys, chew toys and bones help to keep her occupied. Fiona gets along with everyone, but because of her high energy and her habit of jumping, it is suggested that families with younger children but be dog-experienced and willing to work on training with Fiona and all members of the family. Fiona was very mouthy and jumpy when she was found. Her Southern foster has been working with her and she is seeing a noticeable improvement in Fiona. She is much less mouthy and jumpy, however additional training will be needed to help Fiona work on curtailing these unwanted behaviors.
Fiona is a master at fetch. She loves that and any other type of outdoor playtime. Fiona LOVES the water! It is suspected that she may have had some training as a hunting dog. Fiona gets along well with other dogs and loves to go for walks. She walks well on the leash using just a collar, but again she will benefit from additional training to make her even better when walking. Fiona has been exposed to cats and appeared interested, but didn’t attempt to chase or harm them.
You can’t buy love, but you can rescue it. We think Princess Fiona is going to make a perfect pet for you.
Disclaimer: Please know this is a recently rescued dog that is still transitioning into a new home environment. Training, and even personality and energy levels are constantly evolving as the dog starts to feel better emotionally and physically. Your new dog will take days or even weeks to fully settle into his or her true self. What you read in this bio is a snapshot of this dog’s evolving personality. Additionally, the age listed is an estimate provide by the shelter and/or veterinarian. Different vets can provide different age estimates. So always consider the lab you are adopting to be within an age range of a couple years of what is listed.
Lu’s Labs would like you to meet the fabulous Franky! Franky is an approximately 4 year old black boy from Texas. He weighs 90 pounds, and, believe it or not, he needs to put on a few more! Franky has but one mission in life. His goal is to be the best cuddle-lab, ever! Frankie was found with an injury to one of his back legs. After medical consultation, it was decided that FHO surgery was the best route to take for Franky to be the best he can be. He is currently recovering from that surgery, and doing very well. His PT is progressing, despite how frustrating it is for Franky. You see, the more PT time, the less time in foster mom’s lap! Franky is determined about his goal to be the number one cuddler! While Franky does not seem to have a lot of dog experience, he gets along well with other dogs. His preference is for the moderate to low energy kind. Those dogs mesh perfectly with his personality of couch potato. He uses his Texas charm to set boundaries with more active dogs. Always the gentleman, Franky is a great communicator with other dogs. Remember, his number one goal: the best cuddle bug on the East Coast! Franky is not interested in cats. He is house trained, crate trained, walks nicely on a leash, and knows the commands: sit, down, come, heel. He is wonderful with children. Franky understands every little person is precious and needs their space. He is not a jumper. And, Franky loves his car rides! Franky is a sweet and loving boy. He only wants to keep you warm on chilly nights, and give you lots of lab love after stressful days! Franky is a champion love bug who needs a forever home to snuggle into and practice the art of adoration!
1.24.17 UPDATE: Franky is doing GREAT! He is such a love. He loves to follow his foster dad around outside doing work in the yard. Being with his people is his favorite thing to do! His PT is going really well, he's seen the Vet twice for follow ups since his FHO surgery and he said he's progressing nicely. He will need continue leash walks (adding some obstacles and hills is great for him) a couple times a day to continue to rebuild the muscle in the leg he had surgery on but he's perfect on a leash and really enjoys the walks. He's gained some much needed weight and probably needs to gain a little more. He's a bit of a picky eater and giving him kibble doesn't cut it for him. He needs something to spice it up and has been loving some good quality pate canned food mixed in. At first his foster mom and to beg him to eat but once the canned food was introduced, he now lets her know if she's a few minutes late for his meals. This is one of the most loving dogs you will ever meet. A lap Lab for sure!
Meet George! George is a big, black, friendly, happy goofy 1-2 yr old boy! More info to come on George soon!
I am Kylo! I am a black boy puppy, about 10 months old, so definitely a puppy! At 65 pounds, I am a big puppy with lots of energy! I have been told that it is perfect for me at this age to have lots of energy and to like to play, a lot! I love dogs! They are the best playmates! Big dogs, small dogs, as long as they have lots of energy, I like them all. I like to run; I like to wrestle! I will gladly share all toys with everyone. The more the merrier! I like to have these kinds of good activities to help with my energy! I like to take walks, too! The world is such an interesting place with so many wonderful smells! They all intrigue my nose so much! Good adopting points for me are that I am housebroken, and I am crate trained. I may not like the crate, but with some coaxing (read: treats) I will enter. I may bark or cry in protest, but crating is a good idea. Because, well, I have a confession to make. Maybe a couple of confessions. I am a collector of sorts. And, a lover of cardboard. It just feels so good on the teeth to chew! And, well, sometimes it is difficult to resist that particularly delicious texture of shoes. Yummy!!! So, to help me with my problem, please remove all shoes out of my reach. Sigh. It is hard habit to break, and I appreciate your help. I am looking for a home with some training opportunities! So far, I have learned sit, down, and come! I love the treat rewards when I perform a command the right way! Yay! Treats for me! But, there are so many new commands I want to learn, too! Like walking nicely on a leash. When running in a yard, it is appropriate to track all the scents I find, but foster mom reminds me that walking on a leash requires a little more refinement. Like, I should not pull for example. And, jumping is a sometimes a problem for me. I love people and can be a very enthusiastic greeter! I do not want to scare anyone, but I love you before I even know you! So, sometimes, I find it difficult to control my excitement. Can you teach me how to walk nicely on a leash or to sit when greeting someone? Can we use treats as a reward, please? I am an agreeable kind of guy. I just like all people and dogs. I have not met a cat personally but have seen them around. Not really interested in them much. Hey, do you by chance, like to play fetch? Me too! I love to run after that round thing, called a ball! And, then after a nice run, I can bring the ball back, and you can throw it, AGAIN! Oh my, what a great game. I also liked to be petted and rubbed quite a bit. So, if you like snuggles, I am the guy for you! I will even snuggle with you on your bed! Wink! Wink! I am a puppy. I need a lot of help to take care of my energy. Once the energy is gone, I like to sit down, snuggle and be petted. I am the perfect boy and would love to share all my happiness and love with a forever family! Can you help me be the best I can be?
Meet Louie #2! Louie is Lu’s Labs super handsome and loveable 46-pound, 1 year old gentleman! Louie is very loving, and he believes himself to be a big 'ole lap dog. When you have almost 50 pounds of silky black love in your lap, it’s hard to argue with him! Louie is a bundle of puppy love! This boy has lots of play and bounce energy, just like you would expect a puppy to! Louie has a big personality and he loves life. His motto is, “why go halfway?”. And indeed, why? When you love car rides, as Louie does, love them with your head out the window and ears flapping in the wind! When you love your family, get on their laps and tell them so! When you love balls, chase them with gusto and abandon! When you love your fur-siblings play with them! And Louie does that too. His favorite places in the house are the yard and the kitchen … think he might be a lab?!? He enjoys several walks a day, using just a collar. He likes to run and play with other dogs. Initially, Louie can be excitable when greeting new friends, but he calms down soon after. Louie has not been introduced to cats yet. Louie loves his people, too. He is a cuddle bug and a very good snuggler. When meeting new people, Louie may bark in excitement. Don't fret, it's just his way of showing his enthusiasm! After he gives you the sniff-test you may be subjected to a bath, Louie-style! Get ready for a love fest, 'cause it's coming your way! With consistent training his forever family can teach him that the best way to say hello is to sit for pats. It should be noted that while Louie is great at sharing his toys, being such a young pup, he has not yet mastered the subtleties of gentle patience when it comes to grabbing them in his mouth, so little fingers, beware. Louie is crate trained and is used to staying in the crate for several hours during the day. When left crated longer than a typical day, Louie has been known to extrapolate his halfway motto to apply to the crate – why be an observer in the crate all day when you can be participating in LIFE outside of the crate? Granted, foster mom concedes she may have worked too late those evenings. What choice does an honest pup have, but to take such matters into his own paws? He’s already convinced foster mom to let him snuggle in bed with her at night. He knows how to sit, but Louie would benefit from further training to expand his command repertoire. He is potty trained as well, but needs to be let out often to reinforce this habit. He likes to keep to a schedule! Louie is on his way to being a perfect gentleman, or at least your loveable adorable sidekick! He would add tons of fun to any group! Is Louie the pup for your family?
LUNA AND THE WIZARD LITTER
Meet Luna! Luna is our first official dog for 2018! Luna and Alvin were found together and we think she might be his momma and we don’t leave family behind... oh, AND Luna is PREGNANT! No idea how old she is or how long before she delivers. We will get her to the vet tomorrow and update y’all with info! Luna is a deep dark chocolate. She’s sweet as can be and good with all dogs and cats! We named her Luna because we always name our first dog of the year with a “Lu” and her babies will be named after the Harry Potter characters. Luna Lovegood was a character in Harry Potter. Luna is fostering with Jessica and her family.
The Wizard pups are here!! Welcome Harry, Ginny, Ron, Hermoine, Fleur, Neville and Minerva! All 7 pups are healthy and doing great!
Meet Piper! Dear Lu’s Labs Community Piper here! I am finally settling into my foster home. The first few hours upon arrival were tough for me. You see, I lost my human mama recently. And then, after living with my doggy mama and dad for my whole life (8 full years), I had to leave the proverbial “nest” and venture out on my own. So, when I got my new digs, I needed a little time to decompress and adjust. But after spending a few days in a new home, I realized that new homes come with new comforts, like beds and couches to nap on. If you haven’t heard by now, snuggling on the couch and sleeping in bed with my humans are two of my favorite things. I’d like to think I am the perfect mix of playful and calm. Take me out on a walk and you will see my spirit light up. I will take in all the scents and sites with you and love every minute of it. Throw a ball for me, and I may bring it back, but normally I just like to chase it. Throw a rawhide and I’ll bring it back. But call me to the couch and I’ll snuggle as long as you allow. Don’t let my 78 lb weight fool you. I am a lap dog. If my perfect combo of playful and calm hasn’t got you thinking I might be the perfect new family member for you, you should know that I am also a good protector. Mailmen, Amazon delivery cars, and neighborhood joggers beware, I will always remind you whose house this is. As you all well know, females talk, and I like to chat with you about things I am excited about. If you tell me we are going for a walk, I may just give a little bark and snort, that’s how I tell you I am soo excited. I have also learned the joys of bullysticks, bones, and rawhides, and let me tell you, I don’t discriminate. I love them all. A couple final notes about me, I am house trained, crate trained, and walk pretty well using just a harness. I know sit and come. The one thing I am still working on is counter surfing. But I just love pizza crust … sometimes it just calls to me from the counter, “Piiiiiperrrrrrr….”! Hey! Did you hear that?! Lu’s Labs and I are still trying to figure out if I need to live a furry friend or if I can truly be on my own in a new home. In the coming days, we should have an answer to that question. Foster Mom says she is going to test me. I am not sure what that entails, but I hope it involves snuggles and walks! Foster Mom will keep you posted after my testing. I can’t wait to see what family Lu’s Labs picks for me! Kindest Regards, Piper
Cupid delivered a real sweetheart, just in time for Valentine’s Day; meet Quinn! Sweet Miss Quinn was adopted from Lu's Labs as a puppy (formerly Wilma from the Flintstones). She's back at Lu's Labs through no fault of her own. Quinn is 50 pounds at 8 months old, and she is the most gorgeous, glossy-coated black beauty. She is inquisitive, loving and playful. Quinn is friendly with new people, and loves to charm her family by being a constant companion. She is very in-tune with her family and is always checking in with them to make sure everything is a-ok in their world. She has the cutest habit of bringing you her toys to let you know she is ready to have some fun with you. She is full of warm furry hugs, and wet puppy kisses. Quinn has an adorable sense of humor too; just when you think you’ve found that perfect comfy spot in bed to do some reading, out of nowhere, you might have a flying Quinn on top of you! But don’t worry, once she’s there she’ll just snuggle in with you and keep you cozy. If she has brought her bone up with her, you may see her trying to bury it for safe-keeping in your comforter! She isn’t fond of her crate but that’s O.K. because she is pretty much housebroken and doesn’t chew on anything other than her toys. Such a good girl! Quinn is still very much a happy, bouncy puppy. She loves toys and games of all varieties. She is medium energy and is working in her leash manners. She needs guidance with the basics such as basic commands and continued leash manners. She will jump up when greeting people and is a bit mouthy – all typical puppy behaviors that disappear with maturity and training. And, Quinn is a quick learner and wants to please! She is a typical young dog: she needs exercise, attention and consistency. With that winning combo in a forever family, Quinn will grow wings to fly! Quinn is looking for a family whose kids are dog-savvy, and whose parents are open to training both pup and kids on how to manage puppy behaviors. We aren’t sure how she gets along with cats or other dogs at this time, and will update as soon as we have that information. Quinn is a wonderful little girl who is just waiting for her forever home and will give back ten times the love that is given to her! Consider making Quinn your sweet Valentine this year, and every year thereafter!
REMMY & ZOEY
Meet Remy and Zoey! Remy and Zoey are 3 yr old, yellow female sisters! These girls love each other and are looking for a home together! They are good with others and absolute dolls!
ROGER AKA LOUIE
Meet Roger, an approximately 1-2 year old black lab boy. Roger is a lovely and playful boy with a goofy personality. He is a medium/high energy dog, and will benefit from several sessions of exercise each day. Roger has some scars that look to be from a minor hit by a car. The scars do not seem to bother him one bit. He is happy to be loved and cared for now that he’s a Lu’s Labs dog. When we found Roger, he was emaciated. He is currently underweight at 65 pounds and he eats his food very quickly. This could be because of his history of not knowing where his next meal is coming from. Poor baby! Don’t worry Roger, you will be spoiled and loved for the rest of your life! Roger’s family should use a slow feeder and feed him separately from other pets for right now. We need to build his confidence and show him he doesn’t need to worry about anything.
Just like most young dogs, Roger’s forever family should be ready to provide daily exercise (Roger is long, lean, and fast! He'd make a great running partner) and training to teach him how to be a great pack member for the rest of his life. This should include basic manners, leash walking and taking treats gently. Roger is already crate trained and is great in the crate. His current placement has a variety of dogs and Roger has been great with all the dogs he has met. He loves to run with other playful pups. He loves squeaky balls, toys, and he is a Ladies’ man! Roger can be mouthy at times, after all, he’s still a young guy! With proper training and consistency, this behavior will likely change. If the family who adopts Roger has children, they should be ready and willing to work on this. Roger is a loving, playful and happy lab and his personality will continue to emerge as he settles into his forever home. Is your home ready for Roger to become the star of your show?
Please be aware that this is a recently rescued dog who is still transitioning into a new home environment.

Different vets can provide different age estimates, so always consider the lab you are adopting to be within an age range of a couple of years.
12.14.17 UPDATE: Louis/Roger's doing so well in walking on a leash now. Well, except when I'm fumbling with kibble in my pocket, the leash and the phone. He only needed a few days of training and he now sits so nicely to go out of the front door. The only leash tugging is for a good smell, otherwise he is doing well at my pace. Once we get home, I take him in the backyard to run and jump around like a crazy guy! He is loving life! Here he is helping me with watering plants=)
Roman is a gorgeous, 3 yr old, 82 pound chocolate male love. If you want a big chocolate boy who is good with everyone and everything and also has great house manners, this boy is for you. Roman is a very affectionate pup. He loves to be hugged and petted for as long as you will indulge him. In addition to his love of all humans big and small his love for dogs is equally charming. Roman has met both male and female and young and old pups and he gets along with everyone. In addition, Roman has the incredible ability to adjust his play style depending on the dog. Like a chameleon, he changes his play style to fit the dog and the environment. He has also met three resident cats and is good with them. As mentioned previously, his house manners are also impeccable. His foster mama doesn’t crate him because he is good in the house. He is house trained and does not chew anything he isn’t supposed to. He also does not jump. And if Roman doesn’t sound perfect enough already, he also is a dream on leash, no harness needed. The only possible smudge on Roman’s impeccable record is that he LOVES food and has tried to nudge his foster siblings away from their bowl so that he can indulge in an even larger meal. But, who can blame him, don’t we all love to eat? Roman would make a great dog for any family. Could this loving boy be the perfect match for your family? Please be aware that this is a recently rescued dog who is still transitioning into a new home environment. Training, and even personality and energy level are constantly evolving as the dog starts to feel better emotionally and physically.

Meet Sasha! Sasha is a darling 45 pound, yellow, 8 month old Lu’s Labs gal with a fun-loving personality!
In typical lab fashion, Sasha loves everyone and everything. She is great meeting new people, and has never met a stranger. Playing with her doggie pals is about her favorite thing, especially if they get to go outdoors for playtime. She can’t think of anything better. Sasha lives in a foster home with cats and she is curious about her kitty friends, and may chase them if they run, but she only wants to see what they’re up to. Cats who just lay around aren’t all that interesting to Sasha.
Sasha is great in the crate; she goes in willingly and lays quietly inside. She does need to be crated when no one is home because, like puppies will, she sometimes chews household items that are not for chewing. Sasha is mostly housebroken as long as her family is paying attention. She goes to the door when she needs to go out.
Sasha has typical lab puppy energy, i.e., lots of it! She is very playful and enjoys all manner of activity. She fetches and loves her walks. She pulls a bit on the collar, so continued training in that regard will be needed, as well as standard puppy training for basic commands, jumping when excited, and chewing appropriate items. Foster mom says she is easy to correct, good girl, Sasha!
Sasha will be a wonderful addition to any family who is looking for a frisky, loving and playful puppy to add to their pack!
Meet Stella! Stella is a 7-8 yr old, 54 pound black female. Stella is a happy girl that loves people and is good with other dogs!
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 Sutton! Sutton is a 1 yr old, 70 pound handsome boy! Sutton is super friendly and loves people and other dogs! Cats to be determined. He kept escaping from his owners e fence so they have him up to rescue so he will stay safe. Welcome to Lu’s Labs, Sutton!
1.27.18 UPDATE: Sutton's first trip to the dog park! He loved meeting every dog and got along with all of them greatly. He has been whining on every walk we've gone on because he wants to play with every dog he sees. He would definitely go great in a home with another dog to play with constantly! He met a cat at the vet and sniffed it once then was uninterested. He has been up close to other animals including ducks which he was not bothered by either. He is so exhausted from the dog park he is now sleeping on the floor🐶🐾love this sweet boy
Meet Toby! Toby is a 2 yr old, 70 pound love! Toby is great with female dogs and good with males as long as they don’t try to bully him! No cats for Mr. Toby though! Toby is currently in foster with children and is very gentle with them. He will immediately sit when asked and gently removes treats from child’s hand.❤️ He’s a SWEET boy!
Lu's Labs would like to introduce you to Trout. No, not a fish, a beautiful yellow boy! Only 2 years old and 52 pounds. He is a medium energy lab boy, ready to join his forever family! Trout hails from Louisiana. He is a great big cuddle bug! Trout is great with all people, all ages, and both genders! Trout can be a little shy with strangers, but after a few sniffs, the wags come out! After all, a stranger is only a future friend. We do not at this time have any information of how Trout is with children, but we do know he has a sweet nature. Trout likes the company of other dogs. He likes to wrestle or play chase with doggie friends. He shares his toys nicely. Trout is curious about cats, but does not show concerning behavior towards them. He happily eats among his peers, however, if a canine friend is being offered a treat, and their response is a little delayed, Trout has been known to take advantage of that opportunity! Trout is house trained and crate trained, although Trout does liked to be coaxed into his crate with a treat! The crate is important, because Trout will chew on things other than dog toys. Trout is learning to let his best behavior show! He still needs work on perfecting basic commands other than sit. He needs some more time on the leash to perfect walking without pulling. Currently, he is a counter surfer, but he will correct himself with a verbal reminder. In the beginning of his time with his Foster mom he was a little mouthy when he was insecure. Foster mom has been working on breaking this habit and Trout's behavior is progressing nicely. Trout is a work of art in progress. He has all the good signs of a wonderful labby companion! He is not used to consistent love from people who genuinely care for him, and it takes time to understand unconditional love. As a source of unconditional love himself, Trout welcomes all opportunities to snuggle and soak up the affection of his foster family. This practice will encourage him to trust his new family which will in turn reinforce all the good manners he is capable of learning! If you’re fishing for a forever friend, try catching Trout!
Meet Woody! Woody is a 4-5 yr old, 98 pound big baby! He loves everyone, dogs, cats, kids and is a sweetie! Woody has been living on a work site for the last few months and some of the workers got to know him and posted a plea for someone to help this sweet boy. As a result of living on his own for months his fur and skin isn't in great shape but that won't be the case for long now that he's a Lu's Labs boy!
2.3.18 UPDATE: Today Woody showed real joy. Before, he just had a sad "I hope you will be nice to me" tail wag. Today, he jumped and wagged his whole body. He barked and was just happy to be rubbed. He ate dinner next to the puppy and didn't show any sign of food issues. The puppy follows him everywhere and he doesn't mind having this shadow. He meets other dogs nicely with a few sniffs and tail wags and then goes about his business. Fine with all of my dogs, even my dominant female GSD. He's such a good boy!
