Labs in Need from Individuals

Last updated July 31, 2015 Other labs in rescues and shelters

Whenever possible, GGLRR will post Labs for individuals who must find a new home for their pet. Dogs on this page have not been met and evaluated by GGLRR and are not part of our program. We only provide this listing service as a courtesy for a month to Northern / Central California Labs and assume no responsibilities for the dogs posted on this page. Please contact if you have a dog you would like us to post on this page and provide the posting as you would like it to appear on the page.. Please note since we are a Lab Rescue, we only list Labrador Retrievers or Lab-mixes that appear to be mostly Labrador.

We welcome donations from those who benefit from our maintenance of this web page.

We encourage you to check PetFinder or Adopt a Pet for labs that may be available from other rescue organizations. For additional dogs in need of new homes, please search:

Labs and Lab Mixes Available from Others

Mozzarella: 3-yr-old spayed female yellow lab

Ciao! I'm Mozzarella! Will you rub my belly?

I'm a sweet, goofy gal and I can't wait to meet you! I'd love to go on hikes with you on weekends and snuggle up on movie night! I reeeeally love treats, as you can tell by my round belly - will you rub it?

I would prefer to be the only animal in your home, and I have a special adoption package in place at Berkeley Humane that comes with a training class and plenty of post-adoption support. If you'd like to come meet me, stop on by and ask my friends to tell you more about beautiful me!

You can find me at Berkeley Humane, 2700 Ninth Street, Berkeley, CA 94710… or call my administrative assistant at 510-845-3633, or send me an email: A presto.

Bernie: around 6 years old male, 72 pounds

Hi, I am Bernie. I know this because when I was found running through an empty field, I had a collar on that said "Bernie." I spent 2 years in the shelter and then my current family rescued me. I have come a long way. When I first got to my new home I was scared of the kitchen floor, riding in the car and being left behind. I cried outside the bathroom door anytime someone went in because I didn't think they would come back out. I now lay quietly outside the bathroom door until they come out, I go in the kitchen regularly, and even though I still don't like the car I do ride in it without too much stress.

I am an indoor dog and do not like to be separated from my family. My girls are in college now and it is too much stress for me. I cry a lot and get very upset because they are not home. I would do best with a family that is home on a regular basis. One of my girls compares me to a clingy boyfriend because I always want to be touching you or laying at your feet. I am really sweet and love people of all ages. I am very gentle but due to my vision problems caused by "dwarfism" I can run into people and may knock down a small child or grandparent.

I do not do well with other dogs and should be the only dog in the family. I don't have a cat but i don't seem to mind them.

I am allergic to chicken and have environmental allergies as well. I take my medicine like a champ and enjoy having my ears cleaned because I know it keeps me from getting ear infections. I have dwarfism, and this mostly effects my vision. It also gives me character because I am a little slanted and my legs curve. My mom says this adds to my charm.

I need a lot of reassurance and patience but my sweetness cannot be matched. I am not a barker and everywhere I go people fall in love with me. I know you will too.

If you would like to know more about me, and bring me into your life, please contact Trudy at or at 916-236-9518. I would love to meet you!

We Need Your Help!

Even with all our volunteers, it costs a lot to save and place 300 Labs a year. There are costs to bail-out these dogs from the shelters along with vet and temporary kennelling costs when no foster homes are available. Please consider a donation of cash, vehicle, or even your time through volunteering.
