Meet Lewis
Lewis is available for adoption in the midwest and New England.

This handsome reddish dog is Lewis, 2-3 years of age. He appears to be a Lab, boxer and hound mix. Just an all American dog. (aren't they the best?)
He came into Lucky Lab Rescue heartworm positive and has been successfully treated.
This guy is self confident, can be dominant and is a protector. He loves to be with you and will give you hugs and kisses. He is snuggly and loving and looks forward to bedtime each night. He would do best in a home where someone is there most of the day. Teenage children and older are recommended as Lewis can be "bossy".
Since he is a protector, he is not recommended for apartment or condo living. Those noises would have him barking to alert you to "danger ahead".
Lewis is very devoted and loyal to his people. He plays nicely with the dogs in his foster home when they are outside. He lives with cats in his foster home and mostly ignores them.
He loves to chew on elk antlers. He is house trained and crate trained, although he prefers NO crate.
Are you an experienced dog owner looking for a training project? Lewis walks ok on lead when wearing a walking harness. He is very treat/food motivated and learns quickly. He loves to go for car rides.
Lewis is neutered, up to date on vaccinations including rabies and is micro-chipped. He is house trained. Lewis is on flea and tick preventative.
If you think you might be a good fit for this loyal gentleman, please go to our website,, complete the online application and indicate 'Lewis' in the notes section.

About Lucky Lab Rescue and Adoption - VT

About Our Rescue Group...

When lucky Labs come into Lucky Lab Rescue, they are immediately vetted with vaccinations, spayed or neutered, heartworm tested and wormed for internal parasites. All dogs receive complete veterinary care before they are adopted out. Also at Lucky Lab Rescue, each dog is temperament tested and evaluated for any signs of aggression and for activity level. Since our goal is to place our Labs in forever homes, it is important to know the general personality of each Lab, as we want to match potential adopters with dogs that would be the best possible fit for a successful adoption.

Most Labs that come into Lucky Lab Rescue are from shelters. Most are at risk of euthanasia, usually due to overcrowded shelters. Labs are one of the most popular breeds of dogs due to their loyal and family-oriented personalities. Labs are also one of the most overbred breeds and are the number one breed to be found in shelters. They also have one of the highest euthanasia rates. Some find it difficult that rescues can be breed specific, however, Lucky Lab Rescue and other Lab rescues make a huge impact on euthanasia rates just by rescuing Labs and Lab mixes alone.

The most popular color of Labs are yellow and chocolate. They tend to get rescued and adopted more often than black labs. Some shelters will automatically euthanize black Labs and some rescue organizations will accept the yellow and chocolate over the black Lab. We at Lucky Labs love our yellows and chocolates, but also feel very committed to rescuing black Labs due to their plight.

"The plight of the black dog refers to the low adoption rate and high
euthanization rate of black dogs in shelters. Black dogs are often
the last to be adopted from an animal shelter. You may not be
aware of how doomed black dogs are when they are brought
to the average animal shelter. Black dogs, particularly large
black dogs like Labradors or Lab mixes,have a very difficult
time getting adopted, and are euthanized at a staggering rate at
many animal control facilities throughout the country. The sad truth is, they are overlooked in favor of lighter colored dogs."
