Hey Everyone,

Can we please take the old Tyson listing down and put up a new updated one. The wrong pic was up for him as well, I've attached the correct pics. Thank you !!


Up for foster or adoption: Tyson. We have a very special dog looking for a very special home in Texas.

Tyson is an absolutely wonderful boy! He loves people and gets along with other dogs. He’s a lab mix and he’s fully vaccinated and micro-chipped. He’s an active, eating, tail wagging kind of boy !

Tyson is about 5 years old and the vet says he's doing really well! Here's his special case: When we saved him from a high kill shelter he was heart worm positive. We had him treated for heart worm, but by the time we saved him and got him to a vet for treatment his heart may have already been damaged a bit. Now Tyson is suffering from right side heart problems, but he's been on medications, doing fine and the vet says he has a great shot at living out the rest of his years.

He’s looking for a loving home and a loving, loyal family who will fall in love with the amazing dog he is. It’s not his fault that whomever owned him before we saved him never gave him heart worm preventative. We’d love to find this wonderful dog an incredible family. He is about 65 lbs.

Please apply at www.luckylabrescue.com and we can arrange for you to speak to his foster mom and meet Tyson.
Give this boy a chance at love ! You may fall in love too !

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."
