Single Beautiful Female searching for forever home/family!

Hi ya’ll – my name is Betsy and I’m a gorgeous black lab looking for my new people! I’m still a young’un at 18 months and 65 pounds, I’m described as medium energy and full of love!

Likes – long walks on the beach (or woods, or sidewalks or parks); socializing with all sorts of people, regardless of age or gender; and enjoying doggie playdates where I can be social and have fun!

Loves – playing fetch, chasing after balls, tug-o-war, bones, and wrestling with my pup friends.

Working on – leashed walks – sometimes I pull a little too much, but with some training and patience, I know I can be a champion leash walker! I also can’t wait to learn lots of commands – I already know sit but I am so eager to learn more!

Other Attributes – I’m great in a crate, and I willingly go in while my foster mom runs errands for 2-3 hours at a stretch. If you lead, I’ll follow and when you stop, I will sit down in front of you with a big smile and lots of love in my eyes. When I get excited to see you, I may give you that look like I want to jump up and give you a hug, but if you say no, I’ll listen. I just love everyone.

Interactions with Cats - I have met cats in the past with the rescuer who found me and we get along pretty well. I was surrounded by 3 of them, and all I wanted to do was sniff and play with them, but would not hurt one.

Really though. Aren’t I just perfect in every way!

If you are looking for a young, friendly, active, and playful black beauty then I’ll eagerly be awaiting your call!

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.

I’m a 2-3-year-old, chocolate boy who weighs in at 70 pounds. I love giving chocolate kisses to her and my foster sisters. I'm all about the ladies! Scratches under the chin are my favorite and I have the lab lean down pat. I just want to be as close to you as possible.

When I first came into rescue I was emaciated and extremely underweight. My loving foster mama down south fattened me up and now I’m a happy camper. I get along with every female dog I meet as well as smaller males, but I’m not great with males over 50 pounds. With time and training that could change, but for now you have to love me as I am. Foster mom says I’m the perfect gentleman as evidenced by my ladies first motto. I always let my foster sisters get to the ball and the dog bed first.

Besides being a super lovable boy, I acclimate to the energy of the people or pack I’m around. When it’s playtime outside I run and play. But indoors I like to lay around on the couch or do whatever is on the agenda. I’ve learned a lot since I moved up north, like now I take treats gently, I’m MUCH better with 4 paws on the floor, I’ve learned commands like sit, and I’m working well with come, and stay. My love of treats makes me very trainable.

Foster mom has seen me become such a great dog since I’ve been with her up in the north. In fact, she says if she could fit 3 dogs in her budget, I would already be home! Words she uses to describe me include beautiful, wonderful, lovey… these all sound like perfect reasons why a family would want me.

While I’m fully housebroken, I am GREAT in my crate. I need to be in thick of things so if no one is around, I settle in for the day and enjoy my naps. Foster mom says I’m sooooo chill. But I am a big dog and I can be a bull in a china shop, so people need to be aware so I don’t knock small children down or break any Fabergé eggs. Right now, I’m approved for homes with kids 8 and up but may consider younger if they are dog savvy. I’m a no with cats though since I’ve never met one.

While I love my people, I can be shy at first. Give me a little time and we’ll be the best of friends. Once you pet me, we are all good. I like my leash walks and do better on a harness then just a leash.

If you are looking for the perfect package of fun and loving, then that would be me!

2/12 Update: Hooray! Mr. Donner has completed his heartworm treatment! And boy has he been busy during all that down-time. He has been working hard and has perfected his role as a family dog, complete with the quintessential dinnertime nose nudge. He is such a well-behaved boy that he would never try to snatch anything. If you stand firm, he eventually gives up and goes to lay down. He may blast you with sulky, sourpuss looks though! When he’s not busy hoping for leftovers, he is full of snuggles and loves to lay his head on your lap while you relax in the evenings. While he may be a bit reserved when meeting someone new, rest assured that once he knows you are a part of his inner circle, he is as loyal as they come.

Some of his favorite things to do include gazing out the window, following his fur sisters around and letting them show him the ropes, being near foster mom as much as possible, and even napping in his crate when the door is left open.

Donner has also been working on his manners and is a fast learner. He seems to have become a bit more aware of his surroundings and how his size and enthusiasm can affect those around him. He has really learned how to live in a home, and be aware of how he fits into all the dynamics of family living. One thing he continues to work on is not getting overexcited about treats – LOL! Who can blame him?! While he has made progress, he still has room for improvement (hmmmm, sounds familiar).

Special bonus: this southern boy is a huge fan of the snow and enjoys romping with is fur sister out in the yard in any weather. He is easy to please.

Donner has been waiting a long time to meet his forever family. He has been so patient because he knows they will be worth the wait. But don’t keep this boy waiting any longer! He is a smart, sweet, loving, handsome, and full-of-fun pup that deserves a family to call his own.

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!

Meet Drake! He’s a 2-year-old, 70-pound black lab from Louisiana. While he may not be heating up the Billboard charts, this Drake will certainly warm your heart. He is a high-energy social pup who’s ready to either play or snuggle. This rough and tumble boy is definitely excited to find his furrever home!

This sweet boy loves EVERY person he meets, young, old and in between. Drake enjoys running, chasing and wrestling with other dogs. He’s good with dogs of all energy levels and knows when to walk away when he’s done playing. When he’s done with playtime, he enjoys making a nest out of a blanket which is the perfect place for a quick nap. He hasn’t met a cat yet, so he can’t go to a home with cats.

Drake is good on a leash and responsive to commands, like sit and leave it. He also willingly comes when called. Additional training and continued re-enforcement would help him grow his skills. He is not a huge fan of his crate but will go in with some coaxing or treats.

Not only is Drake a happy boy, he is also a big goofball. Drake loves to play with toys and even tosses them around to entertain himself. He loves his chew bones, playing with tennis balls and his Kong toy. Interactive toys would also be good to keep him busy. Housebroken and happy, Foster Dad says Drake is one of the greatest dogs he’s ever had. This boy isn’t afraid of anything and specializes in playing and snuggling.

Are you ready for a big love bug to join your family in time for Valentine’s Day? Then look no further, Drake is all set to bring some puppy love into your life.

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

Since Ethan’s Lu’s Lab debut, he has made great strides! Although he came from challenging living conditions, he is thankful that his Owner realized the need to surrender him. With his steady weight gain and Lu’s Lab Love, Ethan’s confidence level continually increases and his personality is popping! He is such a sweet and grateful fur baby!

Ethan loves humans, kids included, and fur friends, including dog savvy cats and believe it or not….. ducks! He may need a 10-minute warm-up period to totally engage with his fair-weathered fur friends but after that it’s smooth sailing. Hugs are an endearing gesture and Ethan is working on proper etiquette for public displays of affection. Sometimes a full-blown paw to shoulder hug or a kiss in the mouth is a little overwhelming to the humans he loves and is excited to encounter! Tennis balls are a favorite toy and Ethan loves to play!

He is super smart and quickly adhering to commands such as “sit”, “wait”, “lay” and “back.” Eagerness to learn is one of his admirable qualities! Additional commands will be welcomed, as he is so eager to please! He has the potty trained “thing” mastered! Obviously, he is crazy about food and is happily enjoying his regular feeding schedule, but it is important to note that amazingly Ethan has not once counter-surfed or snatched food from the hands of his little humans. He is so thankful to have regular meals. You should see is happy dance that he performs when he is apprised of the opportunity to eat or go outside! It is Dancing with the Stars worthy!

Ethan has become quite the fashion plate! His foster mom has decked him out in the latest fashion with no resistance! This trait is an additional contribution to attest to Ethan’s easy-going loving personality!

Family life has proven to be Ethan’s happy spot! He often forgets his size and thinks he’s a lap dog and loves the human cuddle time. Ethan would make a great addition to any family! Who wouldn’t want to start the New Year with Ethan and share his new-found joy of life?

1/27/19 Update: Ethan is still making great strides and thoroughly enjoying his job of putting on weight. He equates car rides with treats now, so he loves the car and going on trips with his foster mom. He's also turning out to be quite a loyal pup. A few days ago, his foster brother was getting a manicure (which he hates) and Ethan was right there to comfort him and then try to distract foster mom and help his brother make an escape! This pup is still snuggly and affectionate as ever and has yet to meet a human or animal that he doesn't like.

Foster is a beautiful yellow boy who is not destined to be in a foster home for long! At 3 years old, and 67 pounds this sweet boy is the perfect blend of energetic puppy and old soul. Not only is he house broken, but he’ll go into his crate willingly to nap without any coaxing and it’s actually his safe space he likes to retreat to as he’s getting to know his surroundings.

Pretty well mannered, Foster has shown no counter surfing, no garbage diving, no shoe eating - he loves to snuggle on the couch and won’t beg for food while you eat. This boy also loves the water, and mud puddles are not off limits, but he is easy breezy in a bath so it all balances out.

His sensitivity and diversity with his foster pack is amazing. He currently lives with a menagerie that includes a 4-month-old 5-pound Chiweenie, 1-year-old 80-pound Rottie mix, a 4-year-old German Shepard, and a 7-year old cranky lab. He shares toys, food, and plays well. He leaves the cranky man alone, is playful with the big dogs, and gentle with the tiny one! Just the perfect personality. But that’s not the whole pack… there is also a colony of 15 cats! Yep you heard right! He interacts with them daily and foster mom has even fed him around the cats and he’s just fine. Feathered friends however, are a no.

He needs slower introductions to men than women, but he will warm up quickly. He is afraid of sharp noises, loud voices, and random movements and sounds by little kids. Once he is settled in, he is better, but he will hide if a door slams or if the broom appears. Since he does well with his 9-year-old, dog savvy foster sibling, Lu’s Labs is limiting his new home to kids ages 10+ and it must not be an overly active household.

While Foster already knows “come”, and he does okay on a leash, he can use some fine tuning. A martingale collar is a must. He likes toys and takes treats softly so training will be easy, and he’ll know more commands in no time.

Foster’s gentle soul pours over into sensing people’s emotions. He knows when foster mom is upset or stressed and though it’s not at him, his go to spot is his crate. He needs love and reassurance that life is changing for him. And from here on out it’s only love in his life. His prefect forever home will include a less chaotic environment, free reign of the couches and furniture, patient loving humans, and can include furry friends as well!

Can you see someone as sweet natured as Foster in your life? Do you have a comfy lap for him to lay across while you watch TV on the couch? Then ask your Adoption Coordinator about this beautiful soul.

Who needs candy or flowers for Valentine’s Day when you can have Harry, a lovable, handsome 2-year-old, 60 pound chocolate lab (minus the calories!)?

This sweetheart adores everyone he’s ever met and is a total love bug. His perfect date is laying on the couch with his person petting him 24/7 and tons of brushings, pettings, hugs, and kisses! Harry is housebroken and willingly goes into his crate, where he eats his meals and stays while his human runs errands.

He knows “sit” and is eager to learn other basic commands. He gets along with ALL dogs, but especially loves to play with energetic dogs who will chase him and enjoy a good romp around the yard or park! He plays best when he has a toy in his mouth he can prance around with. He takes direction well from dogs, and even the little dogs in his foster home can boss him around.

This funny boy also lives with cats in his foster home and gets along extremely well with them! He pretty much ignores a room full of them. His other favorite things include peanut butter, treats, kongs, tennis balls and plush toys.

Harry is always happy, and his foster can't say enough good things about this fun, loving, sweet, comical good boy who is truly the perfect dog!

If you think you are the perfect match for this wonderful boy and would like to give him the BEST Valentine’s Day EVER, please contact your Adoption Coordinator now!

Jazz wants to know, “are you my new family???” This beautiful black Louisiana 2-year-old girl weighs in at 68 pounds. We cannot say enough about this girl. She is GREAT with other dogs of ALL ages and sizes. She loves people (also of all ages and sizes) and loves to play. She is a great rider in the car, house trained, crate trained, and in her foster's words, "the perfect dog!"

This medium to high energy love is described as a super happy pup who loves to run and play. She will need more than a couple of leash walks a day and does very well on a leash. She was picked up as a stray but it’s a life she will never have to think about again once she finds that forever home who has the love to give to this sweet girl. She can already tell you she’s discovered beds and thinks they are far superior to concrete and cold nights outdoors.

Cats have not been on Jazz’s radar until a brief meet and greet with a cat in her foster home. Since they had such a short interaction, the jury is still out on whether she can go to a home with a dog savvy cat or not. For now, we'll have to consider her a no. But if more information comes-up we will update.

Not only is this girl sweet, she’s smart too. She already knows sit and shake, and with treats and time she will learn more tricks with her forever family. She’s the queen of glamor shots and has the head tilt down. With her cute white paws and white chest, she looks like she’s been dipped in frosting. What’s really not to love? If you can see being her forever family make sure to let your adoption coordinator know you’d like a little Jazz in your life.

To look at her now, you’d never guess that this gorgeous, red, 1-2-year-old girl with the warm eyes that look like they’ve been lined by an expert doggie makeup artist was part of a huge roundup of animals in an animal cruelty case in Louisiana.

When she was found, she was on a six foot metal chain with no food or water, on a farm littered with neglected and starving animals. Her pictures from that day are heartbreaking – half the weight she should have been, eyes revealing that she’d almost given up hope.

Fast forward to today, and after excellent veterinary care and the loving guidance of her southern foster, Kelsey has learned how to live the life of a pampered pup. First, she discovered the feel of a consistently full belly with plenty of fresh water. “Sweet relief!”, Kelsey thought! Next, she found joy in a comfy dog bed. “Just right” she sighed. Then, she discovered her canine foster siblings. “I love them all – big and small!” said Kelsey. A few days later, she figured out that people give dogs toys to play with. “Eureka!” said Kelsey who had never seen a toy before.

For Kelsey, the prospect of living another day improved immediately upon rescue, and smart pup that she is, she is adjusting to this vastly improved existence and all the joys that being part of a family can bring. Kelsey is making great progress in her potty-training skills and she is happy to spend time in the crate if offered a bite of food as a bribe. She loves her human foster sibling and seems to enjoy every person she meets. She has even been fine with the hustle and bustle of new people coming in and out of her foster home during a home renovation. She occasionally drops to the ground with sudden movements, but she is learning that sudden movements don’t portend disaster. She is more relaxed every day and recovering more quickly when she is surprised. “Humans can be kind” realized Kelsey.

Kelsey still has weight to gain, but loves food and treats so this should be a fun mission to continue to tackle with her forever family. She does like to have her food and treats without other pups around, but of course this makes perfect sense considering she went who knows how long with nothing. Her last, longest and best lesson to learn in this newfound life is the experience of a forever family to call her own. “Hallelujah!” she’ll say. “I’ve been waiting for you. I’m so glad you’re here!”

This 65-pound, 2-year-old, hunk of chocolate will be a great addition to his forever family! Koda loves all people and all dogs, regardless of age, gender, or size. When he’s around other dogs, he will play or wrestle with them, and loves a good game of chase. He doesn’t seem bothered by cats, although the cats he has been around tend to steer clear of dogs. Kongs, bones, tennis balls, tug toys, and really any toy are all loved by Koda. Walks are the best part of his day, but being on a leash isn’t his favorite yet. His leash manners have improved some since his foster family have started working with him, but regular practice and patience will help him get even better!

Koda is really a dream! He is fully housebroken and hasn’t chewed anything he isn’t supposed to in his foster home. Intelligence is definitely a strength for Koda who learns quickly and has made huge progress. Within a few days of being in his foster home he had already learned to love his crate, which he hated when he first arrived. Now, he hangs out in there with the door open, readily goes in when asked, and spends 8-9 hours there during the day.

Have you ever wanted an adorable dog to high-five you? Well, here is your chance! Koda loves to give high-fives and show off with other fun tricks like shake. Food is life for Koda, so a few treats will go a long way for teaching him new things. He already knows sit, come, and down along with his fun greetings. He prefers his treats without other dogs around. Belly rubs are another great reward that Koda will readily accept, and he will return the love with lots of kisses! Sometimes he forgets how big he he is and needs to be reminded to calm down and be careful, especially with his human foster siblings. His foster mom says he would be great in a home with children who love to play outside with him, and a doggie friend, while not necessary, would be a nice bonus, too! Koda still has a lot of totally fun puppy in him, so he will need some walks and play time to channel that energy.

This happy boy is sweet, loving, playful, and smart - this big chunk of chocolate is going to add so much sweetness to one lucky family!

Meet Lopez! He is an approximately 2 year old yellow boy who desperately needed our help. Lopez has been on his own for quite some time. He was starving and covered in fleas when found. Lopez currently weighs 35 pounds but should be around 70. Despite the horrible life he has had, he is the sweetest boy around! He loves attention from people and loves to give kisses. He's great with other dogs and is just an all around SWEETHEART! Lopez is receiving wonderful care at one of our partner Vets and will be moving to a foster home soon!

1/10/19 update: While everyone else has been making new year's resolutions to shed the holiday weight, I’m doing just the opposite. My goal for 2019 is to put on 25-30 more pounds, and I’m already off to such a great start! When Lu’s rescued me I was really skinny and weak but over the past few weeks I’ve been eating lots of yummy food which they tell me it’s high-calorie, whatever that means…all I know is that it’s DELICIOUS and I’ve already starting gaining weight! I have also been getting lots of snuggles from all the humans I get to hang out with everyday. Some of them bring me toys, which are cool and all but I’m more about the scratchies and snuggles. They even dress me up in sweaters sometimes, which I like because they keep me extra warm and cozy especially since my fur is still growing back. Another thing I’m working on is my muscle strength. I’ve already started using my back legs more, especially during play time and also to get a better look at what the humans are doing. All in all, I think 2019 has good things in store for me. Bring on the treats!

Hello! My name is Leroy and I’m a gorgeous yellow fellow who is approximately 2-years old and 77-pounds. I was born down in the Bayou State where I had fallen on some hard times. One of my bigger problems involved me ending up on the wrong end of a gun and resulted in the amputation of my left front leg but that doesn’t bother me at all. In fact, I tell the other dogs I tangled with a gator and I won!!!! I think it gives me a certain cache!! I also ran into a lady friend who left me with more than a smile; however, that situation has also been resolved and I am hale and healthy (and neutered!) as we speak.

As I previously stated, my ‘tripod’ status doesn’t cramp my style and I love nothing better than a good romp outside. I can typically play 30-45 minutes at a time and then I like to come indoors and nap. I am both house and crate trained although I think blankets and beds in my crate are soft toys, so I tend to rip them to pieces. They are not as durable as my real toys like tennis balls and kongs. Did I mention I love to play with my toys?

I also love to play with my humans and other dogs. I have had experience with children ranging in age from 3 to 11-years old. The 3-year old has pulled on my ears and tail before while trying to play and I remained calm. This is not an open invitation for kids to pull my ears, but just know I can be patient. I also put up with it when my canine foster sister steals toys. She once took a tennis ball with which I was playing right out of my mouth, but I only used it as an opportunity to have a good game of chase. At heart, I am a very good-natured chap!

What else do you need to know about me? I’m not usually a barker. If another dog walks by while I am crated, I might bark a little. But only because I want to come out and play! I understand the command “sit” although I need a little work on the other commands. I also need to work a bit on my leash walking skills although I am improving. I have not had the pleasure of meeting any felines so that means I can’t go to a home with cats. I can tell you I love to be loved and, in return, I am quite affectionate!

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading and learning about me. I know I’m looking forward to meeting you! I can hardly wait to have a great fur-ever home!! Tail wags! Leroy

Hi! I’m Luna – a 60-pound, female, yellow lab full of energy and fun. I’m about 1-year-old and I act like it! I love to play, especially with kids, my excitement level means a little supervision is needed so I don’t knock anyone over. While my foster family has several kids from age 2 and up, I can only go to a family with dog savvy kids.

Besides kids, I also like other dogs! Wrestling, chasing, and playing with all types of dogs is so much fun, and a great way to channel my energy. When my older foster sibling needs a break, though, I give her some space. I’m not sure how I feel about cats since I’ve never been around them, so can’t go to a home with them right now.

Walks are a great way to get some exercise, but I do pull on the leash sometimes. A harness could help me learn some manners quicker! Speaking of manners, I love my people so much that I sometimes some puppy comes out and I nip at their toes to get their attention. I know some training is in my future since I’m such a young’un. The good news is I’m eager to please and a fast learner! Foster mom says I have a wonderful temperament and I even already know “sit” and “down”! My forever family will get lots of love in return for being patient with me.

Have I told you that I love my crate? I sleep in there all night, chill in there when my foster family is away during the day, and am always ready to go in the crate when asked. And I’m fully housebroken!

What more could you want from such a young pup?! Housebroken, crate-trained, eager to please, and lots of love to give! I can’t wait to meet my forever family!

2/8 Update – Hey! Luna here! Foster mom says I’m the female version of Marley from “Marley & Me”, which I take as a compliment! I am super sweet and loving, but, just like Marley, I am still working on my manners. I’ve already come a long way, though, according to my foster mom! I’m still loving walks, and getting better at being on the leash. My humans are my absolute favorite people, and I hate being away from them even to just go pee, so I usually ask them to keep me company outside – but when I get to playing outdoors my inner mouthy puppy comes out. I don’t do it indoors, but outside I am just so excited. I’m a good listener and can follow most basic commands and can’t wait to keep learning more with my forever family!

Have tennis ball, will travel! Approximately five years old, Nala is a beautiful yellow girl, with a matching temperament. She has been quick to settle in at her Southern foster’s (turns out she prefers a cushion to concrete--go figure) and is enjoying playing with any and all other dogs available, including her foster brother. Nala loves people and, did I mention?—TENNIS BALLS. Armed with good manners, Nala knows commands like “sit,” “down,” and “shake,” she will make a wonderful addition to a loving family.

Despite the fact that she has not been used to a schedule or consistency, she has a very mellow and agreeable personality. She happily shares her toys (or yours), plays with any dog up for it, and accepts attention and belly rubs from any hooman available. Nala is not picky in the acceptance arena, as she seems to have no problem with cats, either! She just sniffs the resident cat and walks away.

Because Nala has spent a lot of her time living and sleeping on a concrete floor, she would benefit from some basic training and might prefer a crate to help her settle into a potty routine. She knows some basic commands, and takes her treats gently, but is interested in learning some more. A harness will help with ease of walking expectations, as she tends to want to pull in a collar.

This sweet girl just wants to be loved. She is quiet and easily settled. Nala is the epitome of unconditional love, letting any human or four-legged friend into her space, in exchange for kind interaction. Tennis balls seem to be her favorite toy so far, and would love a few fetching lessons, as she loves to be outside.

This yellow beauty is eager to please and ready for a loving family with a yard. She’s ready to enjoy the comforts of an indoor home, where there’s a cushy bed for her lay her head.

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.

Some people say diamonds are a girl’s best friend while even wiser people say dogs are man’s best friend. Luckily, our Ruby fills both requirements! This wonderful girl is a precious gem who wants only to share the priceless gift of love with a family of her own. She is approximately 3-years old, 65-pounds, has lovely reddish-yellow coloring, and absolutely loves tummy rubs!

Ruby is truly an affectionate girl who loves all people regardless of age or gender. She has encountered so many different people from all age groups while out and about with foster mom, and has responded in a gentle, accepting manner. Foster mom says she’s one of the most laidback, chill dogs she’s ever encountered.

She does well with other dogs although she may be interested in observing them for a few days before actively joining in the play time. Once she decides to participate in play, she is all in and enjoys interacting with dogs of all energy levels. Ruby herself is a low/medium-energy dog who enjoys walks on leash, off leash play time, dog parks and doggie play dates. During her foster time, she has met a small 10-pound chihuahua, a 90-pound hound and some seniors and all relations have been amiable. Ruby has no problem sharing toys with other dogs but does not normally play with toys when left to her own devices. While other dogs are no problem, she has had no experience with cats so she can’t go to a home with feline friends.

Other things you might need to know about Ruby are that she is house broken and crate trained. She enters her crate willingly (with some coaxing) and has been content to relax there for hours at a time. That being said, she has been happily sleeping on a dog bed in her foster home living room with no problem so crating may not be necessary. She knows a few commands such as sit and come but could learn others with some patience and work. This girl is used to a fenced in yard for doing her business, so it may take a little coaxing to get her to learn the ropes of pottying on a leash.

While Ruby may be a little quiet at first, she is a loving soul who rolls onto her back for belly rubs almost as soon as she meets someone new. It’s impossible to not respond to her overtures as she so obviously adores being loved, hugged, and petted! When her foster family is reading or watching TV in the evening, Ruby is content to lie in the floor beside them and just enjoy the company. She is a total love bug who just wants to be part of family life!

Truly a jewel, this sweet girl lives up to her name. She has much love to give and would be excited to share it with you! All she needs is a chance.

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. 😉

I’m not sure why no one wants me. I’m a beautiful black 3-year-old with soulful eyes, and a story of sadness and success. My name is Willow, and it’s been an amazing journey with Lu’s Labs, they have cared for me when no one else has. They saved me from a sad life of a stray in the south and brought me into their circle of kindness. I found a home, and then I lost it, because of my fears. You see I just am not good around other dogs. They frighten me and then I bark, and I react.

My northern foster has worked hard with me. She has been caring and loving, and with the help of CBD oil, I have calmed down so much. I am so much more able to deal with the sights and sounds of other dogs. Before my foster mom worked hard with me and put me on CBD oil, I would bark and be so stressed whenever I looked out the window and saw another dog. But now I don’t do that anymore. Before, if the German Shephard was outside in the yard next door, I would run like my life depended on it, back and forth along the fence line barking my head off. But now, I just lay in a patch of sun or chill out in the shade of a tree.

I love to chase balls, and run, and once I trust you I even snuggle. But you have to earn that trust. And really you will love me, I’m great with kids, I know all my commands, I give kisses, I like puzzles, and I’ve never destroyed anything. I will take some time, but the best things in life are worth waiting for. You have to be patient with me. But foster mom says I’m well worth the wait.

For more information on my journey please go read the blog post about me on Lu's Labs here
