Labs Available for Adoption

Lab adoption fair Last updated 11/27/2014 6:30 AM

Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Rescue (GGLRR) places over 400 Labrador Retrievers each year in the greater Bay Area (424 in 2011)!  See the Recently Adopted section or Happy Ending Stories for examples of Labs we have placed. We typically have between 5-15 rescued Labs available for adoption with several available Labs added/removed each week from the list below.  There are usually more males and yellows/blacks, with a variety of ages from occasionally puppies through adults and seniors. Some in-demand Labs are adopted before they are posted on this website by our pre-approved adopters.  If you are willing to donate, you can join our pre-approved adopter program to receive early email notification about GGLRR Labs before they are posted on the website (the pre-approved adopter program is not available for the dogs in the Monterey area).  An explanation of the adoption procedure is contained on the how to Adopt page. We also provide a listing of Other Labs available for adoption from individuals or shelters.

Labs Available from GGLRR

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.








Sterling: 8 Year Old Chocolate / Silver Lab Neutered 80 Pounds


Sweet Sterling was found tied to a pole in the local grocery store parking lot with a sign that read – “Can you give me a new home? My family lost their home and can’t keep me any longer!” Animal control picked up Sterling and took him to the Ukiah shelter and the person called Lab Rescue to ask us to take him into our program. They were full and knew he deserved to get out and find a new home before his time was up. We met Sterling and fell in love with him as he is a very easy boy! We now have him in a foster home and this is what the foster has to say about him!

Foster Notes:

Sterling is everyone’s dream dog. He’s calm and quiet in the house, enjoys his walks, and loves to play, run and jump around our backyard. (He loves to play with his ball!) On walks he does not want to chase the cats we run into, in fact he ignores them. When we encounter dogs that are not that nice he decides to ignore them to! He’s appropriately friendly with other dogs we decide to meet. Sterling loves to snuggle in for hugs and pets and is friendly with everyone we meet! He knows some basic commands and walks well on a leash. He will do well in any family large or small. He does not try to get out of our yard and is content to hang out if need be. Sterling does not chew on anything if left alone – only his toys. He is in a home with a female Lab foster sister and he gets along very well with her. He loves to sleep in the foster's bedroom on a dog bed. He appears to be crate trained – he will slip in and out of an open crate to sleep. Sterling prefers to be with people than other dogs and would make a great companion who is around most of the time and wants a sweet boy to hang out with or one that will curl up at your feet.

Lab Rescue got Sterling his shots, neutered, microchipped, heart worm tested – negative, dental and a full senior screen and everything came back as a very healthy dog. He does have some hair loss and we think it could be poor food and some fleas.

Sterling is located in Santa Rosa.

If you have the time for this sweet boy and want him to be a part of your family, please contact Liz at 415-613-6374 or email liz@jobshopsf.com.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

Wookie: 9-yr-old neutered male chocolate lab 83 lbs


Chewbacca never had it this hard. This Wookie suddenly found himself relegated to the backyard after snarling at a young family member in the living room. After seven years with this family, they decided he best go another family. Drat! Our GGLRR rep found Wookie to be a little standoff-ish towards new people, but it didn’t take him long to come around – and start that tail a-waggin’. Seems that Wookie has not been getting any walks either. But his walk around the neighborhood with the GGLRR rep… and subsequent trip to a Fremont dog park… went fabulous. He was a bit out of practice on the walk but quickly responded to direction on the leash – and quick to gobble up a treat when rewarded for doing something good.

What Wookie’s Rescue Rep says: Wookie needs exposure to the outside world. He needs exercise via a regular walking schedule. He needs socialization to unfamiliar people and dogs. A recipe for success! He has lived with another dog for the past few years, so going to a home with another dog could be a plus. Wookie is healthy, current on shots, and micro-chipped.

Wookie is currently in Fremont.

If you are interested in Wookie, call Rescue Rep Dave 415-686-4248.

Charlie: 4-5-yr-old neutered male chocolate lab 81 lbs


Good grief, Charlie Brown! I was found as a stray dog on the streets of Fremont and brought into the city shelter where I was cared for until some nice folks got me transferred to Lab Rescue. I am now hanging around an awesome family with two boys who are putting me through my paces: walks and exercise, sleeping in a crate, keeping me from jumping and putting my front paws on stuff… all that “good dog stuff”. I respond to a few commands like sit, off/down, no, potty, and drop (when playing fetch), but I welcome a pack leader to show me all the ropes. I walk pretty good on leash, but could do better – practice, practice, practice. Hey, I am just absolutely thrilled that I am now in a safe home getting two square meals a day along with having a bed.

What Charlie’s foster says: Charlie is a great walker. He's excellent on the leash and doesn't pull. When distracted by another dog/cat he generally just needs a slight tug to remind him to stay focused. When meeting other animals he's genuinely curious and displays no aggression. We're walking 2-3 miles a day… and this seems to satisfy him but, he could easily do more. Charlie loves to play fetch. He sits when waiting for the ball to be thrown and usually drops the ball when asked. The crate seems to be new to Charlie. He's motivated by treats to get in but, he's not exactly excited about being in the crate. Once inside he lies down and rests. When we return to the house or first thing in the morning, he's not overly anxious to get out of the crate. He'll sit quietly for 30-40 minutes before wanting out. He is getting more and more comfortable with going into the crate on his own or with minimal direction. It is quickly becoming his spot to chill and relax. Charlie loves people. He likes being around the family, relaxing just a few feet away. He's great with our kids (8 and 14) and shows no alpha-dog tendencies. He loves to be where we are and follows us where ever we go. He's getting better about resting in place and feeling comfortable just being. This is a fabulous dog!

What Charlie’s Rescue Rep says: Charlie is a charmer. He is neutered, micro-chipped, and current on all vaccinations. Charlie would be a great dog for a family with children. Not sure how he is with cats.

Charlie is currently with a foster in Windsor.

If you are interested in Charlie, call Rescue Rep Dave 415-686-4248.

2 LAB MIX FEMALE PUPPIES 6 Weeks Old
We are not accepting any more calls/emails for the puppies. The rescue rep will get back to those received.


Golden Gate Lab Rescue got a call from the Oakland shelter that a mom was found wandering the streets. She was picked up by animal control and brought to the shelter. It was obvious that she was going to give birth any day and the shelter did not want her to give birth in the shelter. They called Lab Rescue and we came to meet the mom and knew we had to pull her ASAP and get her into a foster home. We pulled her on a Saturday and mom gave birth on October 6th to 12 healthy puppies. The foster mom has done a great job at socializing the puppies, many volunteers have come over to spend time with the puppies and they are getting the hang of the newspapers. The mom is a Lab Mix and we are not sure who dad is but they look Lab / Golden or Lab / Hound but a Lab mix? There are a variety of colors from Red, yellow to white. They are eating puppy food at this time and will be ready to go home at seven weeks. All of the puppies seems very sweet and good natured and seem very smart!

They will have well check with the vet and they will be dewormed this next week.

We want homes for the puppies where people are around, will commit to their training and homes that can commit to regular exercise. From what we can tell the dogs will not be huge dogs but the girls would be around 50-60 pounds and the boys 70-80 pounds.

Puppies are located in Danville.

Lightning: 11 year old neutered male black Lab 95 lbs

Sadly Lightening needs to find a new home in his senior years. His owner died unexpectedly and he was taken to animal control. The owner’s grandson got him out of the shelter and has taken him into his home but the landlord said he has to find a new home for Lightening. GGLRR met Lightening and we knew from the start we needed to bring him into our program and help find him a home that he can live the rest of his life!

Lightening has been a well-loved pet for his entire life. The owner got him when he was a puppy and kept him at his antique shop with another dog you can see in the photo. He has been an onside dog his entire life and sleeps on a dog bed at night. He loves all animals and just have a BIG smile on his face when he meets new dogs and people! The best thing he likes to do is snuggle and lay at your feet. He likes to go for car rides but he needs help getting in and out of the car. We have him on a diet right now and trying to get him out for regular walks as he needs to lose at least 8-10 pounds. Lightning would do well in a home with other dogs, cats or kids. He is a dog that only needs 1-2 short walks per day. He takes treats easy from your hand and knows a few commands but he really wants to just curl up at your feet!

We got Lightening into the vet and do a full health check on him and got him neutered. He is up to date on his shots, microchipped, full blood panel – which all came back great, x-rays, ear cleaning and a dental. Lightning has some back end issues and we got him on Rimadyl to help him. (He should be on this ongoing to help him with arthritis.) He can walk, get up and down but he does need some pain relief.

Lightening would make a great companion and would make anyone smile as he never seems to stop smiling! He has had a good bath and he has a very healthy coat.

He is located in Santa Rosa.

If you are interested in this sweet boy, please call Rescue Rep Liz at 415-613-6374.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Bud: 11 month old neutered male black lab mix - 60lbs.

Bud was almost surrendered to the shelter in Kern River (Lake Isabella) but the shelter rep contacted Lab Rescue as she does whenever there is a desirable Lab at the shelter and connected the owners with the LR rep. The family loved Bud very much but he wanted to play with the goats as though they were dogs. So he would race around and chase them in fun but goats are not dogs and it wasn’t a good match. Although he was fabulous with their other dogs and very good with their children. As his foster I find him to be a very sweet boy with no bad habits. He doesn’t jump on people, he doesn’t chew and he’s housebroken. He knows sit and stay and is good on a leash. He plays with our two foster dogs and is very respectful of them. He would be great in a home with children of all ages but even more so would love to have a dog buddy because he is so playful. Neither children or another dog is a requirement though as long as he goes to a home where he will get plenty of exercise and love. Although he is not much of a ball chaser now, we think he would easily learn. He’s so smart and he has the most amazingly soft coat, almost as soft as Chinchilla fur.

Bud is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, micro-chipped and has had a fecal test.

To meet Bud or find out more about him please text Marty at 831-277-5708 or call 831-633-1259.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives.

Brooklyn: 2-1/2-yr-old spayed female black lab mix 96 lbs

Brooklyn came to GGLRR from a family that could no longer afford her growing medical bills. She was being treated for a severe anemia which was causing her red blood cell count to drop to dangerous levels. She’d been lethargic, losing her appetite, and in general decline. GGLRR’s vet has since been weaning her off the strong anti-anemia medication (which appears to have worked) and she is on the road to recovery. While she may need continued medication to address the underlying condition, she has returned to being a vibrant and engaging dog. Her skull is currently slightly misshapen due to the strong doses of Prednisone (vet’s call it “pred head”) – but the vet says her skull may return to normal once her body purges itself of the Prednisone and its effects.

What Brooklyn’s foster says: We have had Brooklyn since late September and she is an absolute delight. She follows me around constantly and her lab gesture of choice is her head in your lap. She's just super sweet, doesn't bark, and loves to play tug of war. She's finally even wagging her tail and giving kisses! She gets excited to play when we get home or the other dogs start playing, but she's actually really mellow. Brooklyn is very aware of everything around her, constantly watching, but loves to just chill on her bed or sit with her head in our laps and get some love. Unless of course we get up and then she's up and following us around every time! She's the typical lab that will lay by your feet in front of the fire.

What Brooklyn’s Rescue Rep says: Brookyn is an angel in a dog’s body. Her previous owner reported that she has some Rottweiler in her, but it is hardly noticeable. She is spayed and micro-chipped, and soon will be brought up to date on shots. Brooklyn is ideal for an older person or someone looking for company while they work at home; someone that wants the ideal lab curled up at their feet.

Brooklyn is currently with a foster in Concord.

If you are interested in Brooklyn, call Rescue Rep Dave 415-686-4248.

Rocky: “The Italian Stallion” 1.5 Year Old Black Male Lab Mix Not Neutered 95 Pounds
(Lab rescue is working on getting him neutered.) We are not accepting any more calls for Rocky and calls received will be returned over the next couple of days


A good neighbor convinced the owners of Rocky to surrender him to Lab Rescue. He was spending his entire time outside and was not allowed inside the house any longer, as he got too big! (He was no longer that small 20 pound lab puppy, so out he went!) The neighbor loves to garden so when she was in the yard; Rocky would come over and look through the part of the fence that was broken and try to get some attention. After this went on for a few months she went next door and spoke to the owner’s and convinced them to surrender him to Lab Rescue. They purchased Rocky through a friend who use to breed labs and Rocky was an inside dog and around their kids until 8 months ago. He is not a barker in the back yard, he does not dig or attempt to escape but he is very bored!

The neighbor takes him out on walks and he has decent leash skills but needs to walk with a correction collar. He knows some basic commands and needs continued training. She brings him inside her home and he does not have any accidents and he has not had any issues with her small dogs. GGLRR met Rocky out on a walk with two other foster dogs and Rocky loved them. (They are two large males and all got along; which is great with Rocky not being neutered.) We walked Rocky off leash and he got to swim, play with the other dogs, would come when called off leash and takes treats very gently. Even though Rocky is a big boy he is not a fighter but a BIG lover. We saw cats on our walk and Rocky did not pay attention to them. He tried to chase a rabbit but once we told him no, he stopped and came right back. He rides well in the car and seems like a very happy dog. You can touch him all over, his paws, his ears and he will roll over for belly rubs!

Rocky has such a great time he did not want to leave. Rocky is a very well-tempered dog and just wants to find a home where he can be part of the pack! He is very healthy, has his shots, microchipped and heartworm negative. Rocky needs to go to a home that will continue his training, a home that can get him plenty of exercise and he can go to a home with kids. He is a big boy but he does not jump up to greet anyone; he might knock over a small child with his tail!

Do you want to adopt Rocky so we can get him out of the rain? Call to come and meet this wonderful boy.

Rocky is located on Point Richmond.

Marshall: 12 year old neutered male yellow Lab 80 lbs

SWEET SWEET MARSHALL

Golden Gate Lab Rescue got a call from the Merced shelter as Marshall was brought in by his owners and they told the shelter he was too old and they did not want him any longer. (They wanted to get a puppy for the holidays.) He was due to be put down so we arranged for him to be driven up to the Bay Area, as we knew Marshall had much more life left! When we met Marshall we met a very happy sweet boy. He is a very easy dog and always seems to be wagging his tail! He gives you a big smile as to say thank you for coming to my rescue!

We now have him in a foster home and this is what the foster has to say about Marshall:

This dog has gravitas! Marshall is a gracious companion, gentle, quiet and in very good shape for his age. He has a very nice coat and very soft eyes. Marshall gets along with everyone. We crate him when we have to leave the house and he loves going inside. He loves to go for walks, has great table manners – you can reach into his food bowl and grab some kibble if you want a snack. Marshall is very diplomatic with other dogs, but is not a cat lover, though more out of habit than obsession. He is laid back and curious and will accompany you from room to room but is not clingy or demanding. A soft dog bed or a nice rug, a tickle on the ear, a treat for good behavior and he is content.

Lab Rescue got him neutered, did a dental on him, got a mass removed from his eye lid, removed a couple other masses – that came back as non-cancerous, we did a full blood panel and it came back as a very healthy dog. We got him all his shots, heartworm test and microchipped. Marshall is located on Fairfield.

If you are interested in this sweet boy, please call Rescue Rep Liz at 415-613-6374.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Dexter: 2 Year Old Black Male Lab Mix Neutered 60 Pounds
We are not accepting any more calls for Dexter


This is what we know about Dexter:

Dexter was found by someone who was walking her dog in Merced. She took him in and did all his medical, got him neutered and took him to formal training. They then had to move and he was surrendered to the shelter.

Dexter was with them for 10 months and was a wonderful inside dog with them and caught on quickly in his training. He knows: Sit, down – to lay down, heel, here – to come, leave it – to wait for food bowl or toy) and off. He is housetrained and would sleep on his dog bed in the living room. Dexter was around children, loves to play with other dogs and they say he is a very sweet, playful boy. He loves to go for car rides and loves his rope toys. Dexter’s time was up at the shelter so GGLRR was contacted to see if we could bring him into our program. We met Dexter and knew he should have another chance.

We now have him in a foster home and this is what the foster has to say about Dexter:

Dexter is a very affectionate dog, loves to be petted, have his belly rubbed, always looking for attention. He’s house broken, no accidents, no chewing or destructive behavior. He knows sit, down, off, leave it, heel well, great recall off leash. Dexter does well in the dog park with other dogs, outgoing and playful, not even a hint of aggression. Loves people. His only bad behavior is jumping up on people with excitement, we are working on this. Loves to walk, chase ground squirrels off leash, fetch the ball and tug of war with his rope toy is his favorite thing in the world. Dexter will make a great dog for someone who can provide continued training and exercise.

Dexter is neutered, up to date on his shots, microchipped and heartworm negative. Dexter is located in San Ramon. (Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Hank: 10 year old neutered male Lab / Golden Retriever Mix 80 lbs


Hank was placed in a home when he was around a year old. He was to be a service dog through Leader Dogs for the Blind. (www.leaderdog.org) Hank was 24 / 7 companions with his handler for years. His handler loves Hank and typically when a dog retires, either the person keeps the dog as a pet or they place the dog with a trusted friend or family member. So when Hank was retired Hank was placed with a family that did not have a fenced yard. When Hank was let outside he would decide to make a break for it and would go exploring. The family decided it would not work because they could not be with him all the time and needed to be able to let him in the yard. Hank then was placed with another family that lived on a farm and Hank decided it was pretty cool to chase the livestock so that did not work out either. Hank’s handler would love to keep him but his wife is not a huge dog fan and is was looking forward to a dog free home. Leader Dogs for the Blind knew a volunteer with GGLRR and asked us if we could take Hank in as he was located in Chico and they trusted us to find him a new home.

Hank is of course a well-trained dog. He may be 10 years old but he has the energy of a younger dog. He knows many commands and of course he has excellent leash manners. His biggest joy with us is to chase his tennis ball. He has excellent dog manners and loves to be with his human companions. Hank would love an active family and a family that would be with him for a good part of the day. He is not big into playing with other dogs and since he will chase livestock we think he would chase cats. He rides well in the car and if he is not our in the play yard at the boarding facility he will rest on his bed. He is not an excessive barker and will make an excellent companion for someone who will take him on a couple walks a day.

Hank can be in a home with other dogs and a home with kids. He does not jump up to greet you and of course Hank will listen to what you ask of him. He is one happy dog!

Hank is in excellent shape and has no health issues. He is neutered, microchipped, updated on his shots and heartworm negative. (Hank has had many names and we decided that Hank would be best.)

Update from Hank's foster: Hank is an energetic, handsome lab who used to be a guide dog for the blind. He is now in foster care and is doing well in the new home environment. He would be a great fit in a home with some dog experience, he plays hard with the ball and is overly energetic during play time, so we do not recommend a home with young kids although he doesn't have a mean bone in his body. He tolerates dogs and cats but doesn't like to play or interact with them. He prefers to be with a human all the time. He is crate trained and knows all the commands. He will surf the kitchen counter if given access to it. He is very much loved in his foster home and gets to be the dog he always wanted to be with lots of time spent playing fetch and going on hikes. We are looking for a wonderful home for Hank where he will get the daily exercise he requires, a home where someone is around for the most part.

If you are interested in this well-mannered boy, please call Rescue Rep Liz at 415-613-6374.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Catie: 8 year old female black lab mix 78 lbs


Catie’s previous owner did too much traveling to adequately provide for her needs, so he reluctantly gave her up in hope of a new forever home.

Her previous owner says: “She is interested in everything and loves her walks. She is active and walks well on a leash. She follows me everywhere I go. She loves toys and treats and takes her treats with a gentle mouth. She loves to swim and eagerly jumps in the pool to retrieve the ball. She is very sweet and snugly and loves a good petting session. She is very sturdy and is always up for an adventure.

She has been provided some good exercise, per the former owner: “twice a week to the municipal dog park and once a week to a county pond for a swim as Catie loves to swim. She likes other dogs, unless they are young and wiggly, then she loses interest. She will chase cats.

Catie is very well behaved and rarely will you hear a bark. She obeys the following commands: sit, stay, leave it, drop, come, off, and “Get it, Catie”. She is house-broken but not crate-trained.

She is current on all shots, micro-chipped, and negative for heartworms. Catie does suffer from hypothyroidism, and takes pills twice daily to regulate her thyroid.

Catie has lived with Coal for the past 7-1/2 years, but does not need to be adopted out with Coal. It would be nice but not a must.

Catie is being fostered in San Jose.

If you are interested in Catie, call Rescue Rep Dave 415-686-4248.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives.

Blackie: 10 Year Old Black Male Lab Neutered 90 Pounds AKC


Blackie’s owner passed away and the kids promised to their dad they would take care of Blackie. The kids decided they did not want a large dog in their home so they took Blackie to the Merced shelter. Blackie did not have a chance there as he is an older dog and he is a black dog. (Black dogs are not adopted as quickly as the other colors.) Blackie had a couple more days before he was going to be put down when a friend of Lab Rescue was checking the listings for the Merced shelter and saw Blackie and knew she had to help him! She called Lab Rescue and asked if she met Blackie and she felt he was a good fit for the program would be take him. She went and evaluated Blackie and she found a wonderful older dog who just wanted to be with people!

Golden Gate Lab Rescue pulled Blackie and now have him at their boarding facility.

This is what we know about Blackie:

He was a well-loved pet for 10 years of his life. His world was turned upside down when his owner had to go into the hospital and did not come back home. He was taken to another home for a short time and then he was dropped off at the shelter. He rode well in the car from the shelter, he is fine with other dogs, and he is fine in the kennel and is a real love! He does not bark when left alone, has no issues with food and is a great dog for someone who wants some company and someone who wants to go for short walks. Blackie is one of these dogs that always seems to be smiling no matter what life hands to him!

Blackie is very healthy, has all his shots, microchipped, we need to neuter him and do a dental on him. He does have some sight loss but he can still see. We are working on getting Blackie into a foster home.

BLACKIE is located in Monterey / Salinas.

Update from the foster:

Blackie is a big, slow moving, loveable companion, likes to be around humans and needs a second chance for a good home!

If you have the time for this happy boy and want him to be a part of your family, please contact Liz at 415-613-6374.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

Click to watch Lola's video!







Lola: Yellow female Lab mix (likely Rhodesian Ridgeback), 10 - 12 years old (the Vet's estimate), 80 lbs.

NEW - use the link to the left to watch Lola!

Lola was rescued from a busy intersection in the East Bay by a Good Samaritan who quickly called Lab Rescue. Lola is a sweet girl who looked like she had either been neglected in her home or been on the streets a little while. Lola is quiet but not fearful and is SO appreciative of love and attention. She has behaved beautifully in her fosters home--no barking or house accidents-- and is cozy with their dog and cats. Lola has been to the vet for a wellness check, blood work, heartworm test, shots, x-rays and a microchip. From the x-ray, it looks like Lola has had a previous ACL injury from which she has arthritis in her leg and her hips. While quiet in the house, Lola is very active and her foster mom reports she easily goes on 5-mile hikes....and swears she must be younger than our estimate! She's gained weight and is looking beautiful. Lola loves going out to local cafes and sits nicely, including when kids come over to say hi and pet her. What a love! Lab Rescue would like someone who is home most of the day, although Lola does successfully go to doggie day care two days a week. She would also be great for seniors as she doesn't pull on the leash and is such a great companion.

**UPDATE from the fosters**-- "Lola is people orientated and just a GENTLE SOUL. She wants to know where we are at all times and pretty much follows one of us around the house. She will lie down and get comfy on her own, but definitely likes to be with the whole pack. We have another dog and two cats, and she gets along quite well with all of them. The cats have come up to her face to explore, and she just leaves them be and doesn't seem particularly interested. She's a good walker--5 mile hikes!-- and does fine climbing the 6 stairs up to our house. We've taken her on walks--she does great on the leash and no real pulling except when she smells something good and wants to sniff. But even then she's a gentle puller and listens when you encourage her to keep moving. She seems house-trained as there haven't been any accidents in the house. She likes to be pet and loved, and has been very sweet with guests who come over to meet her.

This one is a real sweetie. She likes head rubs, belly rubs, physical contact, and makes lots of inquisitive eye contact to see what you're up to. She hasn't been very interested in toys or fetch, but will roll around joyfully in a cool patch of grass. Absolutely no disruptive or destructive behaviors like chewing, barking etc."

A very sweet, easy girl who deserves loving companionship in her Golden Years. All she needs is TLC, a couple of walks a day, a soft bed and YOU, a retired person or someone working from home. Lola is located in Oakland.

If you are interested in providing a loving home to sweet Lola, please contact Rescue Rep Allison at 415-806-2490.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives.

Sammy: Black Male Labrador Mix 10 - 12 years old, neutered 55 lbs


Sweet Sammy was a stray from San Jose Animal Care and Services, in need of urgent rescue as his time was up at the shelter. Thankfully, a wonderful foster stepped up and took him in without hesitation.

It is obvious that Sam had belonged to someone. He is sweet but looked like he’d been neglected, or was out on the streets for a good amount of time. He was understandably nervous at the shelter and quickly settled in to his foster’s home within a few days. He went from constantly wandering the yard and making his rounds within the house, rarely settling, to staying by her side whenever he could and more recently, making himself comfortable simply laying in the backyard-- His two favorite spots are under a grapefruit tree, or in his doggie Igloo house.

He enjoys 30 minute daily walks, and the foster reports that although he does pull a bit, he always sits at her side, patiently, whenever she stops to talk with someone. We used a no-pull harness that attaches in the front, and this helped with less pulling. He is wonderful with other dogs and kids, quite gentle actually. If another dog is growly, Sam does not react and will turn and walk away. He is not a barker, but will alarm bark when someone comes to the house. He is an independent guy that enjoys relaxing in the backyard and prefers staying outside, rather than inside.

Update from the foster: Sammy is a sweet guy and seems to have had some training. He is a picky eater and won’t eat unless a little chicken is mixed in with his dry kibble. He’s not into toys or playing fetch, is pretty independent, but still checks in on me when I’m home. He likes car rides, although he does try to sneak into the front seat.

Sammy has already been to the vet for a wellness check, blood work, heartworm test, shots, and a microchip. He does have some age-related osteoarthritis, but it does not slow him down from his daily walks.

Lab Rescue is looking for a forever family where someone is home most of the day and, or retired. Sam would be ideal with adopters who are not overly active. He just wants to be in a forever home, lounging in the backyard, and keep you company. He is very deserving of a loving family and a second chance at life. Sammy is located in San Jose.

If you are interested in providing a loving home to sweet Sammy, please contact Rescue Rep Kris at 415-652-6091.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in.

Adoption Pending (no new calls being accepted on these Labs)

GGLRR wants to make sure people have the latest status about Labs they may have seen on our website so have a category called "adoption pending" which is just like home sales pending, e.g. no new offers being accepted but still working through the details with the expectation that it will close successfully. Most of the time, our "adoption pending" turns into "adopted", so will only accept calls in the rare case when a Lab is moved back to "available".

So why would a Lab adoption be "pending"? When GGLRR places a Lab in a home, we want to make sure it's a great match! Thus, we have a trial period to find out whether all is well with cats and other pets welcoming the new family member. Usually in just a day or two, the adopter knows it's clearly going to work out, but we take the time to be sure. We also move Labs to "Pending" when we've received so many calls about a particular Lab (especially puppies!) that the Rep knows that one of the callers will be a match and doesn't want to get other people's hopes up by accepting more calls.








Coal: 9-yr-old male black lab -- 88 lbs


Coal’s previous owner did too much traveling to adequately provide for his needs, so he reluctantly gave him up in hope of a new forever home.

His previous owner says: “Coal is a sweet lab. He definitely is a gentle giant. His heart is as big as his body. He loves petting and laying his head on me when I let him. Used to ride the neighborhood kids on his back when they were younger. He does have a loud bark. Coal loves his walks. He walks well on a leash and behaves well when meeting other dogs in the neighborhood.”

Coal loves good exercise, per the former owner: “twice a week to the municipal dog park and once a week to a county pond for a swim as Coal loves to swim. He will wrestle with you, and he rolls onto his back and fends you off with his paws. Regarding small children, reportedly, Coal “will check to make sure they will let him lick their face.”

He gets along great with other dogs and also chases cats until he realizes they will always out-run him. Then he just sniffs around to remember their scent, and then he comes back to show what a good protector he is and that he wants a hug.

Coal is well behaved and obeys the following commands: sit, stay, take it, drop, come, off, and “help get the toy”. He is current on all shots, micro-chipped, and negative for heartworms. He had knee surgery years ago and has his unique walk. But he walks very well and his stamina is good.

Coal is a big lab, but his weight is perfect.

Coal has lived with Catie for the past 7-1/2 years, but does not need to be adopted with Catie. It would be nice but not a must.

Coal is currently being fostered in San Jose.

Coal: 9 Year Old Black Male Neutered Lab 80 Pounds
Use the link to the left to watch Coal play!

Hi,

My name is Coal and I have had a great life thus far. I have been very well loved and cared for by my previous owners. Dad had a hip and knees replaced and mom became legally blind. With a lot of tears and a call to Lab Rescue they surrendered me as they knew I needed a better more active life than what they could provide. I have been living in a wonderful foster home with a 3 year old Lab buddy.

Here's what my foster Mom has to say:

We've had many foster dogs for GGLRR and Coal is one of the sweetest boys ever! If you are looking for a sweet boy who gets along with everyone (humans (including kids) and canines) he is the dog for you. We take a morning walk with our own 3 year old Lab and then we go to our neighborhood park every evening for socialization and play time with lots of other dogs and people. Coal doesn't pull on the leash and walks right by your side. He will chase after the ball but is not obsessed with it but he loves a good game of tug of war with my dog. I've left both dogs alone for a few hours and there is no destruction of any kind when I return. He is learning some basic commands - sit, down, stay - and he waits at the door before we go out. He sleeps without a stir on his dog bed throughout the night. Coal is a dog with good energy and acts like a much younger dog. He's a happy dog who wants to have fun and play. No worries about your neighbors complaining - he is not a barker. He definitely loves to be with his human and loves to lean against your leg or lay down on your foot. He's a touchy feely kind of guy which is great for someone who is looking for a companion. He uses a dog door to go out to the yard to potty. Someone will be VERY lucky to have Coal for their buddy.

What Coal's Lab Rescue Rep has to say:

Coal is a wonderfully sweet, good dog with a gorgeous black coat. He has no issues with food or toy aggression. His previous owner said he loves to swim and retrieve sticks. He is good with kids although, unless big dog savvy, there should not be toddlers in the house because he could inadvertently knock them over. He follows his human so if you are looking for a dog to lay at your feet he is the dog for you. We want to adopt him out to a home that will be committed to regular walks and exercise. A basic obedience class would be beneficial as he wants to please and it will establish his new owner as the leader and develop a wonderful bond between them. He is good with other dogs and loves all people. Coal is ok with cats.

Coal is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped and blood work is normal. He is located in Mountain View.

Mars: 16-month-old neutered male black lab mix 61 lbs


His solar system was just a small backyard with daily meteoric passings of the family’s 5-yr-old and 7-yr-old children. Excursions to another galaxy (i.e., the nearby park or just a plain walk around the neighborhood) occurred light years apart -- just once or twice each week. His small world cause him to gravitate towards jumping on visitors and mouthing their hands and arms playfully. He just wanted some earthling (or alien) to pay attention to him. He’d orbit his backyard looking in on his humans inside the house as he was not permitted inside their world. So he spent the entire solar cycle outdoors. The stars recently aligned for Mars when his owners turned him over to GGLRR when they realized their young earthlings had dog allergies. It was Mars lucky day.

What Mars’ foster says: What a few walks each day, human interaction, exposure to other calm dogs, and quiet time on tie-down will do for an anxious dog. He is quick to play with other dogs, so we’ve kept that to a minimum as he is still settling in to the new world order. He is learning to sit for a treat. Walks pretty darn well on leash (considering he’s never been taught how to). Has barked on occasion due to separation anxiety, but this is stifled with a verbal “No”. He sleeps through the night on his dog bed without a peep. Appears to be house-trained, and we are reinforcing this.

What Mars’ Rescue Rep says: Mars is neutered, current on all shots, micro-chipped, and negative for heartworms. Attendance at basic obedience school is very appropriate for Mars, in order to make him a calm and confident dog in the active world around him. Would thrive in a family with kids or young teenagers. He will become the center of someone’s universe!

Mars is currently with a foster in Berkeley.

Indiana aka “Indi” 1 year old male black lab neutered 72 lbs


Indiana suspected something was afoot when that tall stranger showed up with the leash and some kibble. Indi sensed something was about to change. Something smelled good, real good. And it wasn’t another dog’s butt.

For the past four months, Indiana (known to his closest pals as “Indi”) had been hanging out in the fenced backyard, forced to endure the playful annoyances of a young German Shepherd named Calvin. Calvin was really getting on Indi’s nerves – always chasing him around the backyard, always jumping on him. “Enough already” he lamented, “go chew on a bone and leave me in peace”. But there was no escape from Calvin.

His humans hadn’t walk him in a long time -- they said he pulled hard on the leash. It had been months since Indi had seen the outside world. He thought back those the early days in Pacifica. Running free on the beach with them other dogs seemed like a distant memory to him. Did he really do that? “Why haven’t I been going to the beach lately?” He had lots of questions. Very few answers. Every time he thought he was close to figuring things out, there was Calvin the Crazy, bouncing all around, playing, barking. Good grief. He needed to concentrate. What to do?

Now, the strange guy made Indi nervous. Indi barked at him, ran around the backyard evading his approaches. He didn’t trust this joe. The kibble tossed onto the ground by the guy tasted pretty good, but Indi was not going to fall for some lame trick or anything. What did this guy want?

Next thing he knew the guy tricked him into clipping on a leash and had him out on the street in the night-time fresh air, strolling the sidewalk, taking in the sights. Now this was more like it. The city street noise was pretty overwhelming though; too much action; not used to it; made his head spin. Before he could say “Go ahead and chase my tail”, Indi was scooped up and taken to a nearby doc who checked him out and suddenly…. “Why am I so dizzy…” Indi drifted off into a big black hole… Damn, the doc had slipped him a mickey-finn. Should’ve seen that coming… Next thing he knew, Indi woke up with a two-bit hangover – and less several key pieces of his male anatomy. The nerve of that doc. But looking around, Indi noticed that the backyard had become a comfortable living room… and Calvin was now this really nice human lady… and all was quiet and calm… but what the heck was this plastic cone doing around his head…

What Indi’s foster says: Indi is a very sweet boy. He has adjusted to our home and 3-year-old Labrador well. He shares toys. He is very smart, and has learned to use the dog door, slept in a crate with very little issues, and knows basic commands – sit, leave it, shake and come (selectively). Due to his recent neutering, we have had to keep him from being too playful, but we know he has it in him. He likes to be close to one of us at all times, and will just sit at your feet whenever he can. He’s gone on several walks, and does well with a correction collar. We think he is okay with cats, as he has basically ignored our cat who lives outside. He is a bit skittish with new people, but once he gets to know you he’s a friend for life. Indi has been great with our daughter and we believe he would be okay with kids, but because of his size, may accidently knock over a little one. He is currently scared of anything with wheels, and gets nervous around bikes, strollers, and skateboards. With patience, Indi has the ability to be a wonderful companion.

What Indi’s Rescue Rep says: Indi has been recently neutered, and is current on all shots, micro-chipped, and negative for heartworms. His owner will have to continue his rehabilitation to enable Indi to become a calm and confident dog in the active world around him. Attendance at basic obedience school is very appropriate for Indiana. Would thrive in a family with kids or young teenagers.

Jack: 8 Year Old Black Male Lab Neutered 90 Pounds AKC
Duke: 6 Year Old Yellow Male Lab Neutered 90 Pounds AKC
Jack and Duke are bonded and we would like them adopted together


Jack’s owner has recently divorced and is having to sell the home to settle everything. He had to move in with a friend and could not take his dogs with him. He reached out to Golden Gate Lab Rescue and we evaluated Jack and his half- brother and took them into our program.

This is what we know about Jack:

The owner purchased Jack from a breeder in the San Francisco area and brought him home at 8 weeks of age. (Breeder http://drycreeklabradors.com/wp/2013/07/18/jasper/- Jack and his brother Duke had the same dad who was an AKC Champion. You can see him on their website – Jasper.) Jack had been a loved member of the home for the last eight years and it is very sad for the owner to have to let go of his dogs. When the person from Lab Rescue called the vet and spoke to the receptionist about the dogs, she started to cry as she was very sad the owner had to let go of his dogs. She told Lab Rescue the two dogs were amazing and everyone loved them! The owner describes Jack as the more serious of the two dogs, not as goofy as his brother but still a sweetheart. He is housebroken and has been an inside outside dog his entire life. (He uses a doggie door when the owner is not at home.) Jack has been raised with other dogs and he has been well socialized over the years with people and other dogs. The owner has had many labs in his past and he has trained all of them. Jack knows: Sit, stay, down, fetch, leave it, drop, come and off. (He stated Jack has a large vocabulary. I am sure he knows GO GIANTS!) Jack will come when called and the owner walks him on a harness as when he sees other dogs on leash he will pull towards them. Lab Rescue would suggest using a correction collar. He has been around children and he would do fine with small kids as he is not a jumper and will listen to no. Jack went on daily walks with the owner and he would get out to play with other dogs at least once a week. He has not been around cats so we are not sure about cats but he is fine with other dogs and other animals. Jack loves to go for car rides and hang his head out the window and of course he loves to go for a refreshing swim! Jack can be left alone and will not bark, does not have separation anxiety and does not have any possessiveness towards food or toys.

We currently have Jack at our boarding facility and he gets along and plays with a variety of dogs. The kennel really likes him and his brother and says he is a real sweetheart of a dog!

Jack is very healthy, has all his shots, is neutered, is heartworm negative and is microchipped. We are working on getting a few pounds off Jack.

This is what we know about Duke:

The owner purchased Duke from a breeder in the San Francisco area and brought him home at 8 weeks of age. Duke had been a loved member of the home for the last six years and it is very sad for the owner to have to let go of his dogs. The owner describes Duke as a gentle mellow dog that is a real sweetheart. He is housebroken and has been an inside outside dog his entire life. (He uses a doggie door when the owner is not at home.) Duke has been raised with other dogs and he has been well socialized over the years with people and other dogs. Duke knows: Sit, stay, down, fetch, leave it, drop, come and off. (The owner stated Duke has a large vocabulary.) Duke will come when called and he walks very well on a leash without pulling. He has been around children and he would do fine with small kids as he is not a jumper and will listen to no. Duke went on daily walks with the owner and he would get out to play with other dogs at least once a week. He has not been around cats so we are not sure about cats but he is fine with other dogs and other animals. Duke loves to go for car rides and hang his head out the window and of course he loves to go for a refreshing swim! Duke can be left alone and will not bark, does not have separation anxiety and does not have any possessiveness towards food or toys.

Duke is very healthy, has all his shots, is neutered, is heartworm negative and is microchipped. We are working on getting a few pounds off Duke.

(Duke tore his ACL and we will arrange for the ACL surgery over the next couple of weeks. He was running and stumbled in a hole.)

Jasmine: 7 Year Old Spayed Yellow Female Lab 70 Pounds


Jasmine has been owned by one family since she was a puppy. They purchased her from a breeder in the Mendocino area and she has been a loved pet her entire life. Jasmine's family lost their home and had to move to a place that would not take dogs. They thought they had found her a great home, but when they found out that her new owners planned to use her as a breeding dog, they persuaded them to return Jasmine. Her family were trying to hide her in their new place while they searched for a new home for her, but the landlord found out and there was no choice but to take her to the Ukiah shelter. Lab Rescue works closely with the Ukiah shelter, who contacted us about her. As soon as we met Jasmine, we could see what a wonderful dog she is, and that she needed to get out of the shelter, burn off some pent-up energy, and of course, find a new and permanent home and family!

Jasmine has been an inside dog, been around kids of all ages and has been exposed to cats. She does get excited when she sees a cat, but she could be trained to not chase them. Even though Jasmine is seven she is a very active dog and needs to go to an active family. Her foster mom says she is full of energy, and as you can see, she loves her new foster brother. Jasmine gets along well with other dogs and has never had any issues with them. She loves to play ball, ride in the car and of course she loves the water! She knows a few commands, including sit, stay and down. The one area where Jasmine needs help is walking on a leash. She may not have ben walked on a leash very often, so a bit of basic leash training is in order. We would recommend using a correction collar with her, initially. Jasmine is able to jump in and out of the car, though when she is riding in the car we would suggest a tie down or a crate...as we said, Jasmine is an active girl. She had not had any health issues in all her seven years, is current on her shots, heartworm negative and microchipped. Lab Rescue is working on getting her spayed soon.

We are looking for a home for Jasmine with an active family who are around much of the time, and who are willing and able to continue the training her foster has started. Children in the family should be 8 or older, as Jasmine is a very excited girl and may knock over small children until she learns proper greeting protocol.

Update from the foster mom:

We've had Jasmine for a couple of weeks and she and our chocolate Lab are best friends and love playing with each other. Jasmine is crated when we are away and she sleeps on her dog bed at night. She is an active girl, even though she is seven. We have been working on her leash skills and she is doing much better with a correction collar. Jasmine is being fostered in the city and she loves her walks and hikes. Jasmine is one of these dogs that always has a smile on her face no matter what happens to her. She is always wagging her tail and ready to go on the next adventure. She rides well in the car, settling down after a few minutes. She is housebroken and well behaved in the home.

Jasmine is located in San Francisco.

Abigail (Abbey) and Homer Purebred Golden Retrievers Abbey is 4, Homer is 2

Homer was bought by a family in Bakersfield who already had Abbey with thoughts of breeding them. Luckily they were too busy and decided breeding would be too much work so they spayed Abbey. Labrescue has neutered Homer. The husband had always had Labradors whom he used for hunting and field work but the children wanted Golden Retrievers. After the novelty wore off for the children and the Dad decided they weren’t the best hunting dogs the dogs weren’t given as much attention. Additionally the children would often leave the gate open and the dogs would wander down the street. Since they were such friendly dogs they would go visit the neighborhood children and other dogs. The neighbors would bring them home but the family finally realized that the dogs were too nice and should be in a home where they are appreciated.

They are both super loving, cuddly and friendly. They get along great with other dogs and are being fostered in a home with a senior Shepherd mix and a spry, feisty Lab mix. Abbey is very calm and just likes to hang out and have her ears scratched. As expected Homer is a goofy, funny, energetic young guy (not overly energetic, just normal for a young guy). Both dogs are as sweet as they can be and love attention and riding in the car. They both retrieve. Labrescue would very much like to see these two get adopted to the same family but will consider splitting them up only because Homer dearly loves Abbey.

Both dogs are up to date on vaccinations, have been heartworm tested and had a fecal test (all negative) and are micro chipped.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

Jack: 10 1/2 Year Old Spayed Black Male Neutered Lab 90 lbs.


Hi! I’m Happy Jack and I’m happy (as my name says :-), easy-going and a great companion. I’m looking for a special someone or family to let me into their home and their hearts. Through no fault of my own, my family had to surrender me to the Humane Society because they lost their home. I lived with kids and love them! In fact, I love all people. I’ve met several dogs and can be excited to socialize, but appropriately friendly. I love belly rubs, short walk and lots of pets. Though I’m a “Retriever,” I’m not all that into chasing the ball. And as a Lab, I definitely have a fondness for food and other chewy toys. Sometimes I get upset about sharing my favorite chews, so I should probably live with a family with mature kids over 13. Hey I have an idea – it’d be great if my whole new family can work with me to learn to share happily by trading favorite treats for chewys I would rather not share. I’m currently in a foster home with this incredibly nice trainer and I’m sure she could show you some tricks of the trade.

I am a very good boy who would like to enjoy my golden years with someone who likes to go for a few walks a day, who loves to rub my belly and who wants to be my new best friend.

Though I’m a senior dog, please consider adopting me. I come with so many great benefits – you know what you’re getting, I’m house-trained, I promise not to chew up your house and I’m pretty darn mellow. And mostly, I’d so appreciate you taking a chance on me that I’d smile and give you kisses all day.

What Jack’s foster has to say: "Jack is a big bear of a dog. He loves going for walks and getting belly rubs. He loves to wag his tail and generally enjoys life. Jack is friendly with all dogs he meets but because most of his life he didn’t live with another dog he is not very good at sharing toys. To manage this behavior I do not let Jack have toys around other dogs and in doing so he doesn’t have a problem hanging out with other dogs. He also sometimes doesn’t want to share his chews with me but he’s learning that trading for a treat is pretty cool idea! Like a typical lab, Jack loves food! Breakfast and dinner are pretty much his favorite time of day. Jack is doing really well at walking on a leash but if he sees a squirrel or a cat he gets a little excited so Jack wouldn’t do well with cats. Over all Jack is a great dog looking forward to sharing his retirement with someone where he can take nice walks and long naps."

What Lab Rescue is looking for: Jack is a wonderful dog who has had a few bumps in the road lately. We want him to go to a home where someone can be around most of the day with him, someone who will continue with his training and who will get him out for regular exercise to lose some of those extra pounds. Jack is healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and micro chipped. Jack is located in Santa Rosa.

Jojo: 8 years old, spayed female, yellow Lab, 65 lbs.


Jojo was reluctantly surrendered to GGLRR in March of 2011, after months of agonizing on the part of her owner, who had rescued Jojo as a stray, when he found her wandering a rural road near Grass Valley. Her owner loved her sweet, friendly temperament and always cheerful companionship, but he lived on a large, unfenced property, often worked away from home, and his wife would not allow dogs in the house. This had likely been a similar scenario to Jojo's original home, because she was wandering off and her owner worried that she would eventually come to harm.

We found a wonderful family with two young daughters in the North Bay, who found Jojo to be the perfect family dog. She was friendly to all (a total failure as a guard dog), patient and gentle with the children and a fun running companion for her mom. As a busy family, Jojo's adopters simply adapted to her habit of staying outside and remaining if-fy on the house-training. Jojo spent her time in the family's back yard and slept in the garage. Her family provided Jojo with plenty of exercise, help to socialize her with unfamiliar dogs and she had daily fun and play with the kids.

When the mom became pregnant with her third child, the daily runs gradually decreased and then stopped altogether, and it was around this time that Jojo's wanderlust returned in earnest. (The family was gone 8 plus hours a day and it seems like instead of helping Jojo become part of the pack, they left Jojo to outside and alone.) Just as her previous owner had, her family worried that one of her excursions would not end simply with a call from the shelter to say that Jojo was a guest (she was becoming a "frequent flyer"), but eventually a call would inform them of a terrible accident. Loving Jojo and having exhausted their ability to cope with the situation, the last time the shelter called, her family declined to pick her up and informed shelter staff that Jojo was a GGLRR dog.

When LR got the call from the shelter, we heard that she was current on her vaccinations, in good shape and well known by the staff to be friendly and "easy to handle". The boarding facility where we keep some of our dogs went to go get Jojo and they immediately called to let us know, “What an amazing dog!” (The kennel owners use to be trainers for Guide Dogs.) That if they did not have a few dogs of their own they would keep her. That she is in great shape, she had a fabulous temperament, jumped right into the car and was excited but laid down right away! (They said she is such a sounds dog with her body and her behavior that she could be from a breeding stock.) She gets along with all the dogs she meets, has good leash manners and is just one happy girl, even with all the bumps along the way.

Lab Rescue will be very focused on finding a home for Jojo where her new family will work with her on structure and bonding through training and leadership. Her adopters need to understand that although Jojo has gotten out in the past she does not have separation anxiety, she just needs to be let inside the home to be part of the pack. She did not bark when left alone in the yard or the garage but if she was left alone for long periods of time in the yard and left there over night she would try and dig out.

Original bio from 2011:

Jojo has been a country girl all her life. Her current owner took her in three years ago, after a friend found her wandering the road in Grass Valley. The vet thought she was about 1 1/2 at the time. She has enjoyed the outdoors on her owner's property, swimming in the pond, and entertaining herself while alone (and sometimes "escaping" to find some friendly company). She has spent her nights in a heated garage. Her owner is away from the home a lot, and because he loves her, wants her to have the family life and home she deserves. Jojo is a little reserved, but very sweet-tempered and responsive -we said she is a country girl- and once she is comfortable, is playful and ready for fun. She is fine with other dogs as long as they are respectful. She is polite and receptive to people, and cooperative with correction. Her owner says she is fine with children, but we feel they should be 6 or older, as she might not be accustomed to the little ones. She takes treats gently, rides just fine in the vehicle and walks well on the lead. Lab Rescue wants Jojo to have a home where she is inside and a part of the family, although it might take her some time to adjust to being inside and "off the range". A consistent routine of meals, training and exercise at predictable times will go a long way towards assuring her that the good life is here to stay. Jojo is microchipped, and has recently been to the vet for an exam and updating on her vaccinations. She is fit and healthy, and would be a wonderful addition to a "Lab-savvy" family. (Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.) -->

Sheba: 3 Year Old Yellow Female Lab Spayed 60 Pounds AKC


Sheba’s owner knew a friend at the Napa shelter and they referred her to Golden Gate Lab Rescue. Her family was displaced from their home and could not find a place that would take a large dog so it was a very hard decision but knew they had to surrender Sheba.

We took Sheba into our program and she is a wonderful dog and has been well cared for by her owner. She is a very happy girl but needs to go to a home that will get her plenty of exercise and continue her wonderful training and foundation.

What we know about Sheba.

She was purchased from a breeder in Sonoma and she was brought home at the age of 8 weeks. She has been with one family her entire life. She is AKC registered, and has been an inside dog and well socialized with other dogs, people and situations her entire life. She has been in a home with adult men, women and children from the ages of 7-17. She has lived with cats and will chase the cats but then will stop and sniff them. The previous owner describes her as loving, playful and kind. She is housebroken, has been crate trained and stays in her crate only overnight if they are visiting relatives. They have trained Sheba themselves and she knows: Fetch, take it, leave it, drop, come, sit, stay, down, off and wait. Sheba will come when called and will walk-on leash without pulling but not consistently. She will need work on her leash skills. When she needed to be disciplined they would tell her no and go lay down. The owner states she loves children and she would get daily walks and ball play. She loves to play with other dogs and currently at the boarding facility she has some favorite play buddies. She loves to go for car rides and of course swim! When Sheba gets excited she may jump up but she generally will greet people and keep all four paws on the ground. She does chew on socks in the home and will bark a little when she is excited.

We currently have Sheba at our boarding facility and she gets along and plays with a variety of dogs. The kennel really likes her and says she is a real sweetheart of a dog!

Sheba is very healthy, has all her shots, is spayed, is heartworm negative, recent fecal and is microchipped.

Sheba is located in Petaluma!

Ellie: 8 Month Old White Lab Mix Spayed Female 45 Pounds


Hi, my name is Ellie and my foster mom says I am about as sweet as they come and that I am a smiley dog. You see, my story starts off a little sad. I was dumped out on the streets of Merced and was wandering around when I found myself in a strange neighborhood. There were some humans being not so nice to me, but fortunately a nice lady came out of her house and brought me inside. This is where the story gets better! I went to the vet and had some shots and flea medicine put on (no more itching for me!). Then, another nice lady fostered me for a few days until I found my ride up to the Bay Area. Now, I am in a foster home with two other lab siblings and I think they are awesome. At first I was a little nervous with new dogs coming to greet me, but my foster sister quickly showed me the ropes. She has taught me fun games like chase and tug of war. My foster brother is a little boring but he shares his bones with me, so that’s pretty cool. My foster mom and dad keep telling me that I am super smart! They have taught me to come, sit and shake and are working on some other commands. I also know “off” when I try to jump up on the furniture. I am learning my leash manners and doing quite well. I do love to say hello to all the other people and dogs along our walk, but foster mom just says, “lets go” and I know that means to keep trotting along. I eat breakfast and dinner alongside my foster brother and sister and am very good about staying at my own bowl. At nighttime, I sleep in a crate with some cozy blankets. I settle right in and don’t make a peep until morning which my foster mom says is very good! I also go in the crate when nobody is home. Since I am still a puppy, the crate is the safest place for me when there is no one at home to watch me. Some of my favorite things are snuggling (I LOVE affection), playing with my foster siblings, and playing with toys. I am very good about only playing with dog appropriate items (don’t worry, your shoes are safe around me!). I am a good girl in the car as long as I am crated or on a tie down (I hear these are the safest ways for dogs to travel anyways). Since I am a little girl still, I would love a family that could take me out for a couple of walks a day to help me get out some energy. If you have other pups in your house for me the play with, that would be fun, but I am also content with being your one and only pup. So, call my rep below and ask about me, Ellie!

From the foster: Ellie has been a joy to have. Her sweet personality shines through and you can even see in her pictures that she is always smiling. We are impressed with how smart she is and she is a very quick learner. She gets along famously with our two labs sharing beds, bones, toys, and love. She will likely end up being on the smaller side at about 55lbs full grown. She has not been tested with cats, but has played with small dogs and got along great with them. We think Ellie would be good with kids as well. She would benefit from a basic obedience class as this would help her to bond with her new owners since she is such a pleaser.

Ellie is up to date on all her shots, microchipped, and spayed. She is located in Clayton.

Frank: 7-8 years old, neutered male Chocolate Lab


Frank was originally adopted through GGLRR in 2009 by a very, very wonderful family who took the most incredible care of him for these past five years. They adored him and adoration is a mild term compared to how much he loved them! They saved this marvelous dog after he had been surrendered to a shelter because his first family lost their home during the housing downturn. Due to a very, very sad turn of events, one of his parents passed away recently. Not only is Frank very sad but Lab Rescue is very sad to lose one of its wonderful adopters.

His Mom and I thought it might be good to have Frank tell his story in his own words (translated of course to people talk).

“I'm a charmer. Men are drawn to me because I'm big and strong and love to run and hang out in parks and the woods. When my Dad watches sports, I'm by his side. Women love my brown eyes, velvet ears and shiny fur coat. I am gentle with children and I really hope to find a home with children. When Little Ones climb on me at the park or pet my ears, I lap it up. Having another dog in the house would be good, too. I like having a dog buddy with me when my family leaves me.

I'm happiest off leash either in my yard or at a dog park or on a beach. I’m very dependable off leash as I love my people and want to be with them. I may pull when I am on the leash but a gentle lead harness would be perfect for me. I can entertain myself, sniff and play with other dogs, nose around trees, climb hills and hike for hours with my human friends. I love riding in cars and am well behaved and trustworthy anywhere you take me. I can swim but it’s not a priority. Regardless of where I am, when someone calls my name, I come running so fast it makes heads spin. I am very loyal.”

Frank is lovely dog who will fall in love quickly with his new family and will show his gratitude by doing everything to please them. He’s wonderful with people, dogs and children. He’s unknown with cats but with his personality it’s doubtful it would be a problem. (Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

Murphy: 8-yr-old, 70-lb, neutered black lab



My name is Munchie, but my new fosters like to call me Murphy. (I guess they think I look Irish because I’m so handsome.)

I was given up by my owner who did not have time for me anymore in her new life in Oakland.

And even though I’m up for adoption, it doesn’t mean she didn’t love me, or that I’m not a really good boy!

So now I’m 8, and on my own, and life is a bit different. I’m figuring out my new life, and so may feel a little unsure of myself from time to time. Kind of like a career change? Ha ha. So, when you first meet me I may seem a little distant, but if you let me know you’re here for me, you’ll have my heart forever. Just ask my new foster mom and dad!

So what am I like, you ask? Well, my favorite activities right now are eating and chasing the tennis ball. Anytime anywhere. Which means it’s really easy for you because you can just stand in one place, throw the ball, and I’ll tire myself out, then we can go back inside and take naps together. Eating…well, who doesn’t love a big bowl of dog food?! I’m pretty self-reliant too. I can put myself to bed at night. When you take off my “work” collar, I know it’s time for bed, and I’ll crawl into my pup tent (literally), and then… zzzzzzz… see you in the morning.

As for other dogs, my new fosters have an 11-year-old boy lab, and we get along OK, we sniff each other and wag our tails a lot. We are still getting to know each other, but he seems pretty cool.

Some things you might like about me:

-I sit/ lie down/ heel on command

-I’m a great fetcher

-I’m good at coming back to you when you call me off leash

-I do not jump on people or furniture

-I’m housebroken!

-I enjoy quiet time in my crate, and am good at relaxing after some playtime

-I don’t chew on your nice things

I could use your help with, er, well, uh, I kind of like taking food from the counters – doh!

What Murphy’s foster says: Murphy [dog formerly known as Munchie] is initially a little bit shy and aloof. But you can tell he really, really wants to belong. He’s a handsome elegant boy, (may have a touch of hound in him as he is leaner than a traditional lab), and in good physical shape. He would excel at agility, as he’s extremely attentive (always looking for eye contact and body language), as well as very fit/athletic. But if agility is not your thing, he is also a fun companion/ house dog. Equipped with a good lab brain, and well-motivated by food, he’s quick to learn and respond to mild corrections. He drops to lie down faster than any dog I’ve seen! Emotionally I think he will need a little time to build relationships. The first few hours with me, he was constantly looking for his previous foster. Waiting by the door and sniffing the drive way for his car. But now he’s usually got his head in my lap and is looking for a connection. While he gets along OK with other dogs, I think he would really love to be some human’s best friend. For that special someone, he’s the kind of dog who will be deeply loyal till his last day.

What his GGLRR rep says: Murphy is house-trained and crate-trained, in great health, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped.

Mischa: 10 Year Old Black Female Lab Spayed 55 Pounds


Mischa was an owner surrender to the Napa shelter as her owner passed away and no one was able to take her into their home. The shelter called GGLRR as they were full and needed to free up some space. Mischa was not doing so great in the shelter, not eating much and they felt she needed to be in a less stressful environment. Also since she was 10 years old they were not sure they could get her adopted. If GGLRR was not able to pull her, she was due to be put down.

Her owner was single and made her part of his life for the last ten years. He fell on hard times and was living out of his car the last couple of years, so Mischa was a bit neglected with her medical care but she was still with her owner who took her out for adventures each day. Mischa’s owner passed away in his car and was not found for a couple of days. (Mischa was by his side until the end. The family was notified but was not able to provide a home for Mischa. They brought her into the shelter where they filled out the surrender forms on her. Also GGLRR has spoken to the family to get more details on Mischa.)

What we know about Mischa:

Mischa was purchased from a breeder and was brought into the home when she was 10 weeks of age. She has been an inside dog, with her owner and is house broken. She has a wonderful temperament and gets along with everyone and everything. She is a very easy girl and will do what you ask of her with no issues. She knows sit, down, walks well on a leash and is not a jumper. Mischa is one of these dogs that is an old soul! She has very soulful eyes and it seems like she is talking to you when you are with her. She is use to companionship and is one of these dogs that can go for a walk and then will be happy laying at your feet the rest of the day. She loves to go for car rides and will curl up on the back seat or she will sit up and watch out the window. She is a very easy going girl and is a very sensitive girl. She rolls with the ups and downs and will give you the look : Are you my new owner?

Medical

Mischa is a very healthy girl. She has had a full blood panel with no issues, she is heartworm negative, she has all her shot and she is microchipped. We are confirming she is spayed. If she is not spayed we will get her spayed and will do a dental at the same time. She had a back case of fleas which we have treated. From having the fleas she has some hair loss on her tail and her back side. The hair should grow back over the next few months.

Come see Mischa all she wants is a soft bed to lay on and she will be your best friend for life!

Mischa is located in Napa.

Mackie: Black Female - spayed 6 years old 50 pounds


Mackie was surrended to a high kill shelter because the children begged their mom to get them a new puppy. How anyone could have dumped this lovely senior gal makes no sense to us. She's a total lovebug. She's a great size and is very well behaved. She's wonderful with children. She can be left home alone for a few hours with run of the house and is totally trustworthy. There are many good things about adopting a more mature Lab such as no chewing, digging, etc.

Mackie has a very cute smile, takes treats very gently and can be counted on to sleep all night and take a few naps during the day although she has plenty of energy to take long hikes and could make a good running partner. She loves to go for rides but when you're ready to watch a movie or the daily news will cuddle with you on the couch and watch TV. She also gives sweet little kisses but only if asked to do so.

One of her favorite tricks is to grab one of her toys or a sock if you've left one lying around while you're fixing her meals and dance around with it, tossing it in the air and catching it. She's very good on a leash and doesn't get distracted by othe dogs or squirrels etc. She might even be a good apartment dog as she's small, disciplined on the leash and doesn't get into mischief if left alone.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in.

Cal: Neutered Black Male 1 year old


Cal was found in Hollister by a Cal Fire Crew who took him to one of Lab Rescue’s foster family who are active in the Firefighters community. He was very happy, clean and friendly and so they were confident they would be able to find his owner quickly. After days of searching for the owners it was obvious that no one would come to claim this cute, fun, special guy.

His foster family has three Labs of their own and he is great with them. He is also fine with the family cats. He’s not a barker but may whimper a bit if he wants attention. He loves to be with people and is very gentle for his age. He may put his arms up around you as if to hug you but isn’t pushy and will get down as soon as you tell him to do so and is definitely a cuddler.

We would love to see him go to a home where someone can spend time with him. Although the foster family does not have small children we feel he would be fine with children.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Charlie: 10 months old neutered yellow male 62 pounds


Charlie was rescued from a shelter where he was left when his family moved. Lab Rescue saw his handsome face and rescued him immediately. And what a handsome dog he is. But there's so much more to this guy than just his looks. He's a great puppy and with that comes all the energy of a puppy.

Charlie is being fostered in Santa Cruz in a family with two other Labs and a young child. He's great with kids always hoping they will throw the ball for him as he LOVES to retrieve. He will do a big happy dance when someone shows him something to retrieve. He's not particular about who throws the ball for him as long as someone does. He's definitely not fanatical about it though. He loves to go for rides and is quite well behaved in the car. He is not a barker either.

Charlie is a young Lab so he will need exercise and attention and training. He already knows sit and down and his foster is working on his leash training.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you.

Frieda: Frieda Bonita Bell 8.5 Year Old Female Chocolate Lab Spayed 90 Pounds AKC Registered
Current on vaccinations and health checks. Has had regular check ups all her life.
Diego: Diego San Rio Carmelo 8.5 Year Old Male Chocolate Lab Neutered 120 Pounds AKC Registered
Up to date on vaccinations, up to date on all health checks. Regularly vet check ups all his life.
We would like them to be adopted together.

The family is moving to another country due to the Dad's work assignment and they cannot take the dogs with them. As one might expect the family is totally heartbroken to leave these wonderful, loving, trained and well behaved dogs but they have no choice. They trust Labrescue to find the very best home for both of them. These are truly exceptional dogs.

They helped raise the children in the family and are excellent with babies, toddlers and adults alike. They are perfect with other dogs and live with cats and are great with them. They have perfect house manners and currently stay in the house for 8 hours daily. Labrescue would like to find them a home where they wouldn't have to spend so many hours every day alone. Both are also crate trained although they no longer need to stay in a crate.

They run two miles every day. Both like to retrieve but Frieda likes to do so just a little bit more than Diego. Both love to swim in the ocean and love to run free at Carmel beach. They are both very calm, gentle, sweet dogs. They have perfect recall so can easily be walked off leash in safe areas.

These two are very special dogs who have belonged to a very loving family and lived together their entire lives. Lab Rescue would really like to see them adopted together and in this case two is easier than one!!!!
