Up for adoption in Texas and New England: Leah.

She is a 2 year old female blonde Labrador mix with beautiful crystal brown eyes and very light blonde hair with a white chest and paws. She is about 50lbs and has the softest silk like hair almost like a new born puppy.

Leah came to her foster home as an extremely shy and timid dog walking with her tail between her legs and head down all the time. She wouldn’t approach people and was fearful of the smallest sound. New surroundings typically are unknown and scary. We have worked to gain her trust and build her confidence and she now goes for walks holding her tail and head up high, she chases and plays with a tennis ball and love to run after birds. She is a very sweet and affectionate dog that loves to be petted and scratched. She will be a great fit to any family that can offer her a loving home.

She knows “let’s go outside” as the command to go outside. He will also sit on command.

Leah is house trained and currently not crated however when we got her she was a crated dog.

She respects property and doesn’t get up on furniture unless prompted to do so.

Leah loves to play, run and go for walks. She does well on a leash and knows to stay on the sidewalk during walks. She also loves to go for a car ride and stick her head out the window.

She will bark if someone knocks or rings the doorbell and will be quiet on command. A great watch dog at night for any odd sound.

Being around any other dog is fine and also children of all ages. Being around cats is unknown.

She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Apply at www.luckylabrescue.com

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."
