Meet TEDDY
Teddy is available in the Midwest and in New England. He is one of our senior boys but aside from that gray muzzle, you’d never know it! He is about 7 or 8 years old and is really a fantastic boy. Teddy is also a very big boy weighing about 85lbs. He is tall and buxom which adds to his charm and good looks. He is good with other dogs, has a sweet demeanor, loves his people and loves his food. He knows sit, takes treats gently and appears to be house trained. He does ok on lead but is a strong boy so may need some additional good boy leash skills. He’s fairly mild mannered but will definitely need lab exercise and of course, a lot of people loving. He can be cat tested if needed but will do well in most family situations including families with older respectful children (mostly due to his size). He is neutered, up to date on all vaccinations and is heartworm negative. He is kept on prevention for heartworm, flea and ticks. If you would like to make this senior boy part of your family, please complete an application and request him on the notes section.

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."
