Meet Reggie and George—A Bonded Pair
Available for Adoption in the Midwest and New England

Reggie and George are litter mates and came into Lucky Lab Rescue as owner surrenders. They are very dependent on each other and must be adopted together.

We don’t know what happened in their previous home, but obviously George and Reggie did not have a lot of human interaction and they were not exposed to any part of human life. They are scared and timid and try desperately to hide behind each other. They turn their backs to the new world, almost hoping that you don’t notice them. Which is a shame, because these two are the most loving, sweetest, gorgeous dogs you will ever meet. It will take several weeks to fully earn your trust, but when you do, they give back in spades.

Reggie loves life! He has blossomed in foster care and has really come into his own. When Reggie runs he has a bounce in his step and you just know he is happy. He loves treats and toys and maybe he loves his toys a little too much. Reggie has a habit of going around the house and stealing the toys from the other dogs and taking them into his room where his crate is. However, he is also fine with the other dogs coming and stealing the toys right back. This just adds to the fun. Reggie will steal his way right into your heart.

George is a lover and enjoys snuggling up to you on the couch. He is a sucker for a good scratch behind his ears. George is very dependent on his littermate Reggie and will often use Reggie as a shield and will wait for Reggie to take the lead in new situations. We are working on getting George to be more independent and confident. George is slowly coming out of his shell in foster care and is starting to gain confidence. George must have access to his crate 24/7 as he sees his crate as his secure and safe area. He will often go to his crate when he is overwhelmed or when new people enter the house. George enjoys running outside with his numerous 4-legged foster siblings. He loves treats and toys. George is very sweet and gentle and loves to give those awesome doggie kisses.

Reggie and George would do best with another confident dog in the house. They are gaining confidence and independence but still depend on each other for support. Reggie and George are two "homedoggies" and may never be comfortable going to the dog park, or Petco, or even riding in the car. But on the flip side, once they are comfortable in your home they are so loving and so sweet. They give kisses freely. They love to snuggle up on your lap. They live to be petted and loved on!!!

Reggie and George are crate trained and house trained. They are neutered, up to date on vaccinations, micro chipped and have been on heartworm/tick preventative.

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."
