  • Sex: Female
AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION IN THE MIDWEST AND NEW ENGLAND REGIONS. Star! Her name definitely suits her! She is the star of her own little comedy show and will be of yours too. Star is a young energetic girl, about 1yr old and is on the petite side. She weighs about 45 lbs. Star looks very Shepard in appearance and we believe her to be a Shepard mixed with maybe lab. Her ears are pointing most of the time in which the pictures do not reflect, but beautiful she is!!!! She really is just a stunning little comedian and we love her to pieces. She has a very bright funny personality and is always ready to go do something entertaining! Whether that is running, hiking, playing, swimming, or whatever else her family has in store. Star is a dominant female, but makes friends quickly. She LOOOOOOVVVES to play with her foster siblings and can’t wait to get out there and give them all a run for their money. Though she has some dominance, she actually gets along well with other dominant females, and on occasion has backed down to a bossy foster sister! We laughed at her but please don’t tell her that, she still thinks she is the big cheese. She will do well with an active family with older respectful children. She can be cat tested if needed. Star is crate trained, working on house manners, takes treats nicely, knows how to sit (when she wants) and is just ok on lead. She will need obedience training and her new family will need to have dog experience, as she may be too much for a first time dog owner. This bright little entertainer will keep you laughing as she has such a zest for life. She knows no bounds. She is loving and playful and will be a great family member for some lucky family that is suited for her antics. Star is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations and is heartworm negative. She is micro chipped and kept on frontline and heart guard. If you want to laugh and be entertained, please complete an adoption application and request her one the notes section.

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."
