WADE is a 5 year old neutered yellow male Lab who weighs 75 pounds. Wade is an active dog who is sweet, strong, good looking and full of energy. He likes to be with you to get petted and hugs and rewards you with a wiggling butt and plenty of kisses. He loves to retrieve but best have two toys on hand, one for him to carry and the other to throw so he will drop the first one. He is looking for an active family that will give him love exercise and training. He needs a yard with a physical fence so he can run and play to get the exercise he needs without wandering off. Good with other dogs, has been out with other LR dogs at the kennel. No cats or small dogs who he thinks are cats and should be chased. Knows sit, come and down (sometimes). Will have Training Addendum. Pulls on lead much, is better with an Easy Walk Harness. Reported as crate trained and house trained but will chew on remotes, phones if they are available.Physical fence required. Wade is approved for kids ages 10+.

Update: Wade had a blast meeting everyone at yesterday's adoption day. He was so happy that he couldn't stop wiggling! Watch Wade at yesterday's adoption event here: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1217337695008731&id=237482752994235

Update: Wade is a sweet boy! He rode in the car well, is house trained, knows sit, and is good with other dogs. He is quiet in the house, sleeps through the night on a dog bed. He's a total goof, with a good bundle of energy and a ton of love to give!

This dog is from a rural area and has not been exposed to traffic, noise, or groups of people. If dogs are overwhelmed by their environment, they can exhibit behaviors like excessive barking. To avoid this, for now we are limiting placement to stand alone single family homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural area.

This dog is available for adoption from Lab Rescue LRCP. Lab Rescue LRCP rescues and places dogs in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware and northeast North Carolina (30 miles east of I-95 and north of the Pamlico Sound) Adopters must travel to Maryland, Virginia or Washington DC with their family - human and canine - to meet the dog they want to adopt.

Lab Rescue LRCP has between 50 - 80 dogs available for adoption from foster homes across Maryland and Virginia and at monthly adoption events. The adoption event dates are listed at www.lab-rescue.org.

If you are interested in adopting, please visit www.lab-rescue.org and complete an adoption application. Within a few days of submitting an application you will hear from an Adoption Coordinator who will guide you through the adoption process.

An adoption fee is charged to cover the cost of veterinary care and a home visit is required.
