Tobias (Toby for short) is a mellow fellow that loves life! He is also very smart and trained! He loves people of all ages. He wants to be the center of attention and believes he is a lap dog even at 75 pounds. The vet thinks Tobias is about 5-6 years of age. He is still on the thin side but is eating well. Toby is all about his people. He wants to hang with them and ride with them in the car. He has been gentle on lead. He knows many commands such as sit, get on your bed, outside, eat, off, come and he is working on "gentle" as he can be excited when taking treats from you. Tobias came to Lucky Lab heartworm positive. He has been successfully treated and has been kept on preventative. Tobias does have the bigger jowls and you can expect some drool at times, but it is not excessive. Toby is not interested in interacting with other dogs. He basically ignores them. There are no cats in his foster home. Toby is neutered, heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations including rabies and is micro-chipped. He is house trained. Toby is on flea and tick preventative. If you think you might be a good fit for this respectful gentleman, please go to our website, www.luckylabrescue .com, complete the online application and indicate 'Tobias' in the notes section.
Lucky Lab Rescue and Adoption is an all-volunteer, non-profit (currently filing for 501(c)(3) status) rescue organization whose mission is to reduce the euthanasia rates and inhumane treatment of Labrador Retrievers in the Midwest and find loving forever homes for them.
Most labs that come into Lucky Lab Rescue are from shelters here in the Midwest. 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.
Our Adoption Process...
Potiential adopters must fill out an application and a Lucky Lab representative will follow up with both a phone and home interview. Our adoption includes all vaccination, microchip, spay or neuter and a heartworm test. Provide additional medical treatments if needed.
