Facts about Cindy

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Cindy is available for adoption in the Midwest and New England.

This black beauty is named Cindy, a 4-5 year old female, weighing about 60 pounds. Cindy likes to be with her people. She loves belly rubs and making funny faces. She likes to play outside and completely ignores the cats in her foster home.

Cindy is timid and anxious in the beginning around men. Once she is given some time to determine she will not be harmed, she will warm up to them. She is fine with women and children over 8. Due to sudden movements, Cindy can become anxious. When she is anxious, she will go to her kennel/crate. Cindy will need a calm family with patience as she transitions into her new environment.
Cindy did have ACL repair in March of this year on her back leg. This has caused some arthritis in her leg, but does not hinder her. She can slip on wooden floors, so a home with carpet is recommended to prevent twisting of her knee.

Cindy walks nicely on leash, comes to you when called and has good manners in the home. She is house trained when taken outside routinely through out the day. She is also crate trained.
Cindy is spayed, heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations including rabies and is micro-chipped. She is house trained. Cindy is on flea and tick preventative and heartworm preventative.

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."
