Facts about Gunner

Lucky Lab is looking for a HERO in Texas to adopt this amazing boy: Gunner!

Some would call Gunner a special needs dog because he's a tripod, but we call him pretty special !

Gunner is an amazing dog! Gunner is what we call a "tri- pod" he just had one of his back legs amputated.

When we first saved Gunner he was about to be killed at an animal control facility because he was hit by a car. Lucky Lab raced him to an animal hospital and paid for two different surgeries to try to save his leg. Unfortunately though we tried pins, bolts and other methods to keep it none worked, he was in pain and we finally had to amputate.

Gunner is adjusting really well to life on 3 wheels ! We're looking for a nice foster or adoptive home where he can chill out and continue to heal.

Gunner is about 40 pounds and 1-2 years old.

He is great in a crate, walks in and never complains, he's house broken too. He's good with other dogs as long as they're not very dominant. Once he warms up he LOVES his "people", he just needs to take it slow at first.

Gunner is pretty darn wonderful with his foster family. If you’re his person, he’s great! He’s a sweet, velvety, loving, cuddly, playful, goofy lap dog. He's obedient, house-trained, walks right into a crate if needed, is not destructive (except to unfortunate dog toys), likes car rides, and is fine on leash (we just don’t walk near folks). He lets his foster mom do anything to him. He has no separation anxieties.

He is neutered, fully vaccinated and micro-chipped.

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.
