Max's Story...
Max: 8-month-old male black Lab 60 lbs.

Well beyond Thunderdome, this young Mad Max was surrendered by a loving family that just did not have time to exercise him and see to all of his needs. Fortunately Max did not have to cross the wasteland to reach Lab Rescue. Max’s former owner reports he is “excitable, friendly, sweet, outgoing.” His former owner also says “he knows OFF when he jumps onto the furniture and sometimes he understands” -- hey, Max, we get that. He can be skittish around new people and new surroundings… and will need steady hand to give him the opportunity to become accustomed to the big world around him.

What Max’s foster says: This youngster is a fun-loving bundle of energy. He is crate-trained and house-trained. Max is great with other dogs and fine with my cats. We are working on leash manners and recall. Max is just a super sweet boy!

What Max’s Rescue Rep says: Given his background in a post-apocalyptic world, Max needs a calm, consistent home that will provide pack leadership, structure and a lot of exercise. Did I say A LOT of exercise! He is current on rabies, distemper, microchipped, and heartworm negative… but not yet neutered. Max is located in Oakland.

If you are interested in Max, call, text, 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.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a San Francisco Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in San Francisco, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Francisco already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a San Francisco breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Francisco paves the way for another one to be saved.
