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.

Labs and Lab Mixes Available from Others

Video: Watch Pineapple

Pineapple: 3-year-old male yellow Lab, 3 years young, 75 pounds, neutered

Pineapple is available for adoption through Umbrella of Hope rescue. He is being fostered in Rocklin (just east Sacramento).

He has significantly limited use of his back legs due to bilateral medial luxating patellas that were never fixed. He has severe secondary changes due to the kneecaps not being corrected when the problem first occurred. He has had x-rays, a CT scan and an evaluation at UC Davis, and there is no recommended surgery per a multi-disciplinary team at UC Davis. But this does not slow him down.

He is 100% housebroken (other than two marking episodes during his first week in foster). He is fine with, albeit indifferent to, other dogs of all sizes. He has not been cat tested. He LOVES kids. Pineapple is a moose however and gets REALLY excited to go bye-bye and is working on being calm during these times in an effort to save his foster moms' toes. His anatomy makes him unable to do most commands but he comes when called and is a smart boy. In an embarrassment to all labs, he does not seem to care for toys, balls or swimming. He is also a picky eater with both food and treats. He does not fetch. He ignores birds outside. He does, however, like people very much and has no concept of his size or personal space.

He takes 1/2 of a Meloxicam 7.5 mg tablet once a day (cost $12/year and will come with a one-year supply) and he is also on a fish oil supplement.

Pineapple is getting fitted for a custom wheelchair (Eddie's Wheels) -- the cost of which has been donated. He also will have PT sessions paid for by the organization called PT for Paws, who will do so for the adopter family as well.

He is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated.

Max: male lab mix, 7 years young

Personality: He loves to be where everyone else is and will follow you everywhere if he's not napping! He loves toys and bones, and LOVES walks outside. He is a bit strong, so an experienced adult must hold the leash. NO collar around his neck because he gags and coughs very easily. We have always used a harness.

Training: Max is house trained, and kennel trained. He gets along with other dogs, but not very well with quiet, submissive dogs.

Max would be good for a house with older children, maybe around 7 years and older. We have to rehome him because our family is growing and he gets NO attention anymore and that's not fair. He needs a family that walks him daily, and plays with him in the house.

Contact: if interested. We are located in south San Jose.

Naia: 6 year old Labrador mix

Naia is a 6 year old Labrador mix. She is spayed and vaccinations are up to date.

I have had Naia since she was 8 weeks old. I have to re home due to personal, unforeseen reasons. Unfortunately, she is under socialized and does not get along with most dogs. I believe that with proper training and introduction it can be a possibility. At one point of her life, she used to do well with other dogs ( she lived with 3 dogs in the past ) . I don’t know what happened other than a small dog attacking her.

Naia is very loyal and protective to her people . She’s skittish around people and it’ll take a little for her to warm up to someone but once she does she’ll be the perfect companion.

She loves squeaky toys, loves to play fetch, go on walks, go swimming, loves to eat, loves car rides.

She can be both energetic and also pretty mellow. She loves to hangout wherever we are.

She hasn’t been around kids other than my son and nephew.

She is crate trained and potty trained.

Something that Naia hates are fireworks and thunder.

Rhett: 4 year old, neutered male lab mix

Rhett is estimated in the 4 to 5 year old range and is about 55 pounds. We believe he is mixed with a Ryukyu-ken dog which is a breed of dog that is indigenous to the Ryukyu Islands of which Okinawa is a part of. He is a beautiful tan/brindle color and he is really great dog that would do well in most homes. He loves children and has been fostered with a child or two for his entire time in foster care. He would likely do better with older, sturdier children (8+) because he's still working on house manners and not jumping up on people. He is good with most other dogs with a proper introduction but does have some resource guarding with his crate (and other dogs). He is good with cats also (being fostered with 2).

Rhett's vaccines were just updated, he is neutered, micro-chipped and we treated his heart worms last summer (June/July) and he is now heart worm negative.

Rhett does know some basic commands and loves to go on walks, however he does pull a fair bit on the leash. We've tried several different harnesses with him and he's now using a 2 Hounds Freedom Harness which seems to slow him down. He could benefit from working with a trainer on his leash skills and meeting dogs while out on walks.

We Need Your Help!

Even with all our volunteers, it costs a lot to save and place ~250 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.
