Facts about Afortunado

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
We have an incredible dog who survived an incredible situation and we're looking for a TEXAS foster or adopter for him.

"Afortunado" which means lucky in Spanish!

We saved him from a high kill shelter, he ended up there because he was saved from a horrible hoarding case in Corpus Christi. It was one of the worst police had ever seen.

Afortunado was very scared when he arrived at his fosters home in the summer. They worked with him tremendously and he's come out of his shell and is learning people can be good. He had adjusted to living with family, but then they didn't want him anymore, so now he's been living in a boarding kennel type of set up. The owner there is wonderful to Afortunado but we want to get him back into a home. Please help us give him the home he deserves!

He was good with kids, dogs cats too!!!

Afortunado has a gorgeous black velvet coat, he is neutered, fully vaccinated, housebroken and microchipped. He's about 60lbs.

About Lucky Lab Rescue and Adoption - TX Austin

About Our Rescue Group...

Lucky Lab Rescue and Adoption is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) approved rescue organization whose mission is to reduce the euthanasia rates and inhumane treatment of Labrador Retrievers and lab mixes and find them loving forever homes.

Most labs that come into Lucky Lab Rescue are from municipal and county shelters in Texas. Most are at risk of euthanasia, usually due to overcrowded conditions, great dogs, who ended up in a bad spot.

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.
