Labs in Need from Individuals

Last updated March 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

Molly: 10 year old female

Molly is a 10 year old yellow female, and is as close to perfect as a Lab can get. This girl has no idea she's a senior, and other than several naps throughout the day, loves her dog park and play time. She is full of spunk and love. Molly gets along with other dogs big and small, loves children and is friendly to everyone she meets. She initiates play with her foster siblings and loves to flirt with the boys. Molly has diabetes, but you'd never know it. She will need a person or family committed to giving her daily insulin injections every 12 hours and feeding her on a strict schedule for the rest of her life. She will need to be fed special food and limited treats. Managing a diabetic dog is SO easy, as long as you feed and inject every day consistently and watch her treat intake. Because of her diabetes, Molly is also partially blind, and will need a home with no stairs, no swimming pool and secure fencing. She gets around fine and can see peripherally, but cannot see straight ahead. If she happens to bump something accidentally, she just re-directs herself and keeps going. She has a keen sense of hearing and listens perfectly if you guide her. Molly loves her walks and still enjoys daily sniffing time around the block. She is housebroken, perfect on the leash, has impeccable house manners, sleeps quietly through the night and knows how to use the dog door in her foster home. Molly is an angel who deserves to live out her twilight years with a person or family who will spoil her....she returns the love tenfold. Contact: Tracie Berger phone # is 760.305.3414 and email is

Boomer: 4.5 year old neutered lab mix, 50 pounds


Boomer has been a beloved part of his existing family for 3 ½ years. He has had difficulty adjusting to the recent addition of a newborn and must find a new loving home. Boomer is a smart and loving dog who will do anything for a treat or affection. He knows Come, Stay, Sit, Down, Shake, as well as “Turn/Spin”, “Tummies”, “High Five” and often “Hugs.” He absolutely loves walks and will heel with strong leadership. He also loves to play fetch, tug and chew on bones. He is crate and dog door trained and can be left alone in the house during the day. He loves one on one time with his owners, but finds dog parks overwhelming. Boomer is incredibly eager to please and thrives when given strong leadership. Boomer is looking for an attentive owner who understands the balance of leadership and exercise with affection.

Boomer is currently being fostered in Dublin, but willing to travel to meet potential families. Please contact or call 925-998-8188 if you would like to meet or find out more about Boomer.

Panda: 50 pound male mix

Panda is a handsome black/white lab mix. He was rescued from a high kill shelter in the valley. Panda weighs 58 pounds, is microchipped, neutered and up to date on shots. He is house trained, knows how to sit and walks decent on a leash. Panda is a 15 month old friendly, high energy boy who loves to play with other dogs and go on runs. He loves people and dogs but will most likely chase cats. Because he is so young he will need more training. If you are looking for a great companion, a dog you can take on hikes or jog with and a family dog then consider Panda. He would do best in a house with a yard and an owner who can exercise him on a regular basis. There is a rehoming fee. Charlene Wolfe 650-465-9669.

Moxie: 9.5 year old spayed lab mix, 55 pounds

Moxie is nine-year-old female black lab and pit bull mix who was originally adopted from a San Jose shelter as a puppy. Unfortunately, her home is no longer able to care for her due to some life changes. We are fostering her while searching for a new home where she can get the love she needs.

Moxie is a curious yet timid dog. She loves to run around outdoors, meeting other dogs, and is very loving once she bonds with people. However, she is anxious about unfamiliar people, places and noises. For example, fireworks are terrifying for her, and the sounds of the UPS truck will elicit barks from her, but she loves going on hikes and on a short backpacking trip began to follow when even the new people left the camp.

Moxie has good basic training, such as sitting and waiting for her food or a walk. She is house and crate trained and likes to sleep in her crate. She will do best in a quiet neighborhood. She is fine indoors most of the day, but needs to get outside and run around now and then. She is spayed and has all of her shots up to date. Her previous family will also assist with any medical issues she may develop in her old age.

Moxie is currently in San Jose, but willing to travel to meet potential families. Please contact or call 408-982-7515 if you would like to meet or find out more about Moxie.

Children: Maybe, they can frighten her, but she is from a home with three toddlers.

Energy Level: Medium Low, she spends most of her days sleeping, but likes to get out and run around twice a day.

Potty Trained: Yes

Dogs: Yes, she loves dogs!

Cats: Maybe

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.
