Huey5 is a very handsome, pocket sized, black male, age 1 1/2, who came to us from a backyard breeder. He likes to play with other dogs, especially his brother, but would probably see a cat as something to chase. He LOVES affection and he even has a special way of giving a person a hug! Of course, being so young, he would benefit from some training, but he is totally housebroken, rides well in the car, uses the doggy door, is calm for his age, and is pretty good on a leash. His house behavior is darned good for being so young AND he just ADORABLE! Huey's previous owner said he was good with her grandchildren so a house with kids would be super-- there'd be more people for him to love. And more people to share their bed with him at night! Huey comes with his brother, Dewey, -BUT!- you get two Labs for the price of one! What's not to love?! Call their foster if you want to meet this super sweet pair.
Hi everyone, Dewey here. I asked my foster mom to type something up about me. Looking at my picture, you might notice I am a little smaller for a lab...but is that really a bad thing?! I am 35 pounds of love and fun. I didn't come from the best situation (a backyard breeder) and am rather shy with people until I get to know them, but I really love to be petted and I love when people talk to me. I also love my brother, who is much more outgoing than I am, and we need to be adopted together. But hey--you get two dogs and only have to pay for one, so that's a good deal if you ask me! As a young lab, I would benefit from some training but I already am very good in the house. I use the dog door like a champ, ride well in the car, walk ok on the leash and did I mention I love kids? Huey and I are ready to get settled into our furever home. If you are interested in us, call our foster mom. She just loves to talk about us!
I am a beautiful 5 year old silver lab who has done beautifully in my training camp. I know all of my commands and I aim to please! I am a love of a boy who has absolutely no interest in dogs, cats or toys. However, I promise to love you for all of eternity if you are the right human for me. I am a master swimmer and love to exercise and I exercise at least 1-2 hours each day. Because that can be a lot for some less active folks, I have been treadmill trained too. I can work out while you sip your coffee and admire my form. I walk beautifully on a leash and just want to be by your side to please you. I am kind to all the dogs here but I do not like dogs in my face. I used to hate my crate and now I love it! Like most labs, I love to eat too fast and should have a slow feed bowl to help slow me down. My training mom will teach you everything about me and will also show you how to fulfill me. I think I would do best with older children. I hope to meet you soon! Love, Brutus.
Hi! My name is Alvin and my foster Mom says I'm one of the most endearing dogs she has ever met. I'm about 2 years old, athletic and strong, but I have learned to walk on a leash quite nicely since my foster Dad switched me to a head collar.
I love to play with the other dogs here and with my toys, but my favorite thing to do is hunt lizards. They tell me I have a high prey drive and I guess I do - I even try to catch birds when they fly overhead. So I am not suited to a home with cats or other small creatures.
When I'm not playing I settle down very nicely and I just want to be near my humans, especially when they give me some attention and love on me. I'm comfortable in my crate and can be left several hours with no problems. That's where I sleep at night as well.
I can't wait to find my forever home and am looking for an active family with lots of love to give. As much as I enjoy the other dogs here, I would be quite ok as an only dog as long as I get the love and attention from my humans.
I like kids but very small children might find me a bit overwhelming. I'm kind of clumsy at times and my long tail is always wagging!
So far no one has been able to convince me that swimming is a good idea, but I love to play tug-of-war, chew on toys and chase things!
I'm very curious so my foster family hasn't left me alone uncrated, just to be on the safe side. I'm pretty tall and can counter surf also.
My best trick is sitting and staying for peanut butter. In fact all you have to do is say those words and I run to the spot and sit waiting for that magic stuff!
I'm a big sweet goofball and will make the right family or person a terrific companion. If you think you are the right forever family please call.
Hi! My name is Bell, and I’m one of the 3 sugar babies. You may have already read about us on facebook… My two sisters and I are only 2 years old, but we have been on quite a journey already! We used to live outside and got really skinny. The man we used to live with finally took us to a vet who told him we have diabetes. He said he couldn’t take care of us anymore and asked the vet to put us down. Luckily the vet’s receptionist contacted DLRR who took us in! Yep, turned out they saved us…and we are super thankful! All 3 of us need insulin shots, just like humans with diabetes do. My foster parents didn’t have a clue how to do it, but learned quite quickly. It’s all doable if you love someone…
It would be great if all three of us could stay together, but I understand that might be difficult. Maybe I could just stay with Coco, because I really like to cuddle with her! Coco is going blind too, just like me. I’m actually blind already because my diabetes wasn’t treated, but I heard rumors they are trying to do eye surgery so that I can see again. It’s not cheap, so DLRR, who rescued us, is taking donations to help. Chances are REALLY good that I can see again and live a happy life. That’s what the eye specialist said. Wouldn’t that be cool?!?! Oh, how I’d love to be able to see again and not bump into stuff and be able to goof around. I do manage pretty well, even being blind, but I do remember what it was like when I was able to see, and it was pretty neat! I miss it… Of course I’m housebroken, love people and kids, and I am really good in the crate. I actually kinda like it! My foster family always tells me I’m so lovable and such a pretty girl. I can’t see myself in the mirror, but I hope they are right. Do you want to find out for yourself?
Hi! My name is BonBon, and I’m one of the 3 sugar babies. You may have already read about us on facebook… Apparently we are quite popular! My two sisters and I are only 2 years old, but we have been on quite a journey already! We used to live outside and got really skinny. The man we used to live with finally took us to a vet who told him we have diabetes. He said he couldn’t take care of us anymore and asked the vet to put us down! Luckily the vet’s receptionist contacted DLRR who took us in! Yep, turned out they saved us…and we are so thankful! All 3 of us need insulin shots, just like humans with Type 1 diabetes do. My foster parents didn’t have a clue how to do it, but learned quite quickly. It’s all doable if you love someone…
What else is there to know about me? I am a super cute girl. I love to sunbathe and chase birds, but one of my favorite things to do is cuddle, I just LOVE it! My foster parents have no choice but to love to cuddle with me too because I just drop into their laps when they sit next to me. Plus my coat is sooooo soft... And my face!!! I tell ya…no one can resist me! I also like to play with other dogs, because it’s fun!
I do like being with my sisters, but I have a feeling I’d be ok on my own too. I’m a big girl after all… Since I do like other dogs, I’d love to have a playmate though. Kids love me too and I love them as well; as long as I get belly rubs… I’m housebroken and really good in a crate. What do you say? Do you want to meet me?

It would be great if all three of us could stay together, but I understand that might be difficult. Maybe I could stay with Bell, because I really like to cuddle with her! Bell is already blind, and I’m unfortunately on my way there because my diabetes wasn’t taken care of in time. Although my vision is better than Bell’s and am not completely blind, it makes me sad sometimes. But, good news! Bell and I have seen this doctor who thinks he can do eye surgery so that we can see again. It’s not cheap, so DLRR is taking donations to help. Chances are REALLY good though that I can see again and live a happy life. I would really love that because I’ve had it especially rough. You see, I also have valley fever, so it’s taking more time for me to gain weight and get healthy. But I feel like I’m in good care now, and I know they are doing the best they can to help me. You should also know that I’m housebroken, love kids and really like my crate too! I’m super thankful to our foster family, and try to tell them any chance I get by kissing their hands. Then they pet and kiss me and tell me what a good and sweet girl I am! I love it when they do that… Do you want some kisses from me too?
Hi! Am I really in a safe place? I can finally relax? Okay. This feels good! I was brought to the pound because my owners said I was "too expensive." The nice ladies at DLRR didn't seem to think my owners ever spent any money taking care of me. They think I had a lot of puppies in the past, but those days are behind me! I'm not the youngest pup out there (I'm over 11!) so I'm really low maintenance! My foster mama hasn't had me very long, but I haven't had an accident in the house, so she thinks I'm housetrained. Im not sure about this doggie door thing! I just want a nice, quiet, soft place to sleep and nice people to give me love. My back legs aren't working as well as I'd like them to, so I'm kind of slow. But that's no reason to throw me away! I have a lot of love to give, and an endless supply of sweet kisses for my family. Are YOU looking for a sweet angel? I'm your girl!
Rusty is a handsome young man of approximately 18 months of age. He is just starting to mature but still has a lot of puppy energy about him. He absolutely loves everyone and needs an owner who is committed to following through on the training he has received as well as providing his exercise needs several times a day. He knows all of his commands and is still learning to relax in a car. He is determined to be the driver if you let him. He has an abundance of playfulness in him and has played well with many different dogs at his training camp. He is a tall boy who likes to roughhouse with the right dogs and would be best with larger breed animals. Due to his gorgeous size and high energy, he would be best in a home without small children to knock over. He loves to run, play, treadmill, swim, walk, play ball and participate in just about anything that involves action. If left alone unsupervised, he will find his own ways to amuse himself. He is kennel trained and will bark to let you know he needs to potty outside. If you are an active person, Rusty is your boy.

Jams is one special boy. Having lived most of his life outside by himself, he wants to be right by his people. He takes no time for warming up to you. He will immediately put his head in your lap for pets or drop the ball in front of you to throw. Apparently he is 10 years old? Well, I have never seen a 10 year old lab like Jams. He will play fetch till you are tired( not him), jog as many miles as you want and likely hike Camelback! He absolutely loves to swim but will only jump in the pool if you invite him. He is an absolute pleaser. He knows sit and stay and is perfectly potty trained. He loves kids and all dogs. He plays very well. I'm not sure about cats but I would guess he wouldn't try to hurt one. He loves the car and is great on a leash. He also sleeps perfectly on a dog bed all night long but of course would love to sleep with a loved one in their bed too. Jams suffers from separation anxiety so he would really like an owner or family where people are home often. He is currently on medication for it and it is helping him. He will need to be crated in a secure crate while owners leave the house. I believe Jams will make such an amazing addition to anyone who has the time to spend with him and is looking for that immediate unconditional love from a lab.
Sasha is just as sweet and attentive as they come. She is a yellow lab mix, approximately 5 years old & 60 lbs. She loves to meet new people & her favorite past time is to cuddle! She secretly wants to be a lap dog, but her foster mom does not let her on furniture (aw!), so finding a home where she can snuggle up next to you would be SO exciting! You may have read bios on Sasha that said she was blind - after several weeks with her foster family they can confidently say that she is not. Sasha does have a slight vision issue that makes her do silly things like go to the wrong side of the sliding door. Her need for doggy glasses has certainly does not stopped this little one though! She can chase down toys, do laps around the pool & find the treats that get away from her. Sasha is part Shar-pei as you can see some of the wrinkles on her face & the black spot on her tongue. She does get a bit of her tempermant from that blood line so she can get anxious easily. With a little patience & a family who makes her feel safe, she will do great. She is currently living with three foster siblings & likes play & wrestle with them. Her youngest foster sibling is a puppy so they play for hours a day. When she is by herself she is perfectly content curling up for a nap or just watching you go about your day. Meeting new dogs can be stressful for her as well. When Sasha came to us, she did not know many commands (ie. sit, lay down, stay) but she seems to have mastered sit & is working on 'down'. She does very well in a crate & is fully housebroken. Since day 2 in her foster home, she has not been in a crate & she has never gotten into or chewed on anything she wasn't supposed to. She would be a wonderful addition to any family.
Maggie took a little hiatus from being available but now she is back and ready for her new home. Talk about cute! She is a petite 51 pound yellow girl who wants nothing more than to sit in your lap and be hugged. For her age she's relatively calm and will generally lay by your chair throughout the day. She's quite talented at smiling and talking - high on the cuteness meter. She has learned the doggie door, is housebroken, does not do well in a crate at this time (she is an escape artist) but we are working on it, if you leave a shoe out she will transport it to her bed and gently gnaw on them - so her new humans should probably not leave shoes down in her sight because she still has some puppy propensities. She gets along with other dogs after a period of time so her new owner will need to be patient with her when introducing to dog friends until she likes them. Maggie is relatively quiet but will periodically bark if the neighbor makes noises. She does not know commands and will benefit from obedience training. She does not like to walk on a leash but we are sure that she will pick it up with practice. Toys are not yet her thing but she will pick up a Nylabone to chew on. Maggie will be a wonderful companion and she is looking forward to her fur-ever home.
Rocco is a beautiful 7 month old chocolate lab. He is very sweet, trustworthy, mellow (for a puppy!), and quick to learn. His former family turned him in because they couldn't pay for the hernia surgery he needed. He now has gotten his surgery and he is ready to find his furever home. He is house-broken and crate-trained. He hasn't had an opportunity to interact with many dogs or cats since he's been being fostered (because he has been taking it easy after his hernia surgery), but I get the sense that his former family had other dogs. He is already 55 pounds so he will probably be a big guy!
My name is Owen but I love to hear my foster family call me Owie or Owie-O. I am a 14 week old cream colored beautiful lab puppy. My parents were 3/4 lab and 1/4 who knows. My foster family thinks my 1/4 is lamb because I am so gentle and sweet and I resemble one, too.
I am very submissive in nature but not timid. I have a calm demeanor for a puppy but I still have all those great puppy traits. I play so nicely with the 6 and 9 year old boys in the house. I love their energy and am not afraid of all the loud noises and quick movements they make. When I see them first thing in the morning and when they come home from school, I immediately run to them and drop to the ground and show them my belly. My tail also wags with excitement and I whimper in glee. When they get on the floor with me, I nuzzle as close as I can to them and try to have them wear me like a scarf. I haven't learned to jump up on people yet, so that will be one thing less to teach me.
I am housebroken but I need a lot of reminders. I am just starting to go to the door to let you know I need to go outside. I am quiet and don't bark but will do a soft gruff if I see something I haven't seen before. I look to my people for guidance and reassurance when approaching new things. I easily accept them when I know someone is there to tell me it's okay.
I am very gentle with the senior lab I live with. I have tried to get him to play but he won't. I get the point and am not the pushy type. I really try to get the 10 pound Coton de Tulear to play but she just pushes me around. I think she likes taking advantage of my submissiveness. When she corrects me, I run.
I love to chew, so I will need supervision and will need to be crated when you are away. I correct easily and will turn my attention to an appropriate chew toy. I do well with a soft approach to correction. I am not stubborn in nature. I also LOVE playing fetch. I am good at bringing it close to you and can't wait for it to be thrown again. After playing I am a lap dog. I will sleep on you for a long time. I love the physical attention and my family feels like I really need it to be happy. I just love people!
If you are the affectionate type who is looking for a companion to really bond with and have the time and patience to train me, please call my foster mom. She loves talking about me and promised me she will find me the right home that I am searching for.
Introducing a wonderful 6 year old female Chocolate named Kona. You couldn't build a better dog. She knows all commands like sit, stay, down and shake, is housebroken, uses the doggie door, is super sweet, petite in size (about 60lbs) gets along and plays with her two canine foster sisters, loves the dog bed and sleeps there all night, doesn't get on the furnature and loves kids. One of her favorite commands is "go lay down"; whatever she's doing, if you say go lay down, she turns around and heads to the dog bed. She is also crate trained, but she is very trustworthy when left in the house with her foster sisters. She was given up because a family felt like they didn't have time for her. Kona's foster home has a pool, but she is not interested in swimming yet. Sometimes she barks at noises around the house, but stops immediately when corrected. It is not known if she likes cats. She has seen cats on walks, but doesn't seem too interested. She pulls a little on the leash on walks and likes to bark if left outside alone, so some TLC and basic training would be advised.
