Up for adoption in Texas and New England: Matilda
This sweet adorable pup is Matilda, a petite 8-month-old Lab mix. She weighs only 25 lbs and won’t be a very large dog. She loves people, is friendly, cuddly, and enjoys being petted. Matilda is a little scared of larger sized dogs until she gets used to them, and prefers dogs her own size or smaller as playmates. She has visited the dog park several times, and once she warmed up she ran and played very nicely with all of the other dogs.
Matilda is a little timid at first but will be the biggest cuddle bug once you earn her trust, which takes only a little petting and sweet talk! She settles into her crate at night and sleep all night, and goes easily into her gated area with a chew bone or peanut butter Kong toy and chill. She also loves to curl up next to you as you watch TV, walks well on a leash, and will sit easily for a treat.
She is spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped, almost housebroken, and crate trained. Apply at

About Lucky Lab Rescue and Adoption - TX Houston

About Our Rescue Group...

Lucky Lab Rescue and Adoption is an all-volunteer rescue organization whose mission is to reduce the euthanasia rates and inhumane treatment of abandoned Labrador retrievers by finding them loving, forever homes. We have saved more than 1200 dogs Texas shelters over the past two years.

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."

We are not a shelter. We are a rescue organization and our dogs are housed at several different foster homes.
