Facts about Boss

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Boss: 7-year-old male yellow Lab 130+ lbs

Incredibly happy-go-lucky for a guy who was abandoned by his family and left as a stray, Boss joins the Lab Rescue in order to trim down just a smidge. Seems he has skipped the South Beach Diet, the Paleo Diet, or the Atkins Diet… having totally embraced the “See Food Diet” (if you see food, you eat it). Boss’s foster has introduced the big guy to portion-control (what a concept)… and daily exercise and walks (rocket science principles, here).

What Boss’ Foster says: He has such a sweet disposition, and loves to snuggle. Behaves very well in the house. A relaxed, laid-back dude, and very playful. Sleeps through the night. Beautiful white teeth. Loves to be around "family". Not so good on a leash, though, as it seems he wants to chew through them while on walks --he seems to enjoy just carrying them in his mouth.

What Boss’ Rescue Rep says: We could envision Boss trimming down to a fabulous 90-95 pounds. He is current on vaccinations, microchipped, and neutered. Boss is located in Redwood City.

If you are interested in Boss, call or email Rescue Rep Dave, 415-686-4248,

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

About Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Rescue is an all-volunteer, 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that facilitates the placement of unwanted Labrador Retrievers into loving new homes. We have a spay/neuter requirement for all dogs that we place. If a dog has been abused or needs medical attention, we provide emotional and medical rehabilitation. Individuals who desire to adopt Labrador Retrievers complete an application form and, upon acceptance, are introduced to potential pets. Our purpose is solely to provide good homes for Labrador Retrievers who might otherwise be abandoned or euthanized by their previous owners. Through education, we seek to reduce the unwanted dog population and increase responsible pet ownership.

Come Meet Our Pets...

As an all-volunteer organization, we do not have a physical location. Labs that we have available for adoption are either in their current homes, in a foster home, or in one of the kennels that we use when no other temporary home is available.

Interested persons should contact the Volunteer Rescue Representative that is listed with any dogs placed on Adopt-a-Pet.

Our Adoption Process...

We request a modest donation from families seeking to adopt a Labrador Retriever through us. This is NOT an adoption fee (there is no adoption fee to adopt a Lab directly from us). The donation helps to offset the direct expenses of our Rescue and Placement Services. The donation is $350 per Lab.
