Facts about Moose

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Up for foster in Texas, with the option to adopt: Moose the yellow labby boy!

He is about 1 year old and weighs 84 lbs.

Moose loves everyone and everything. He does great with all people and dogs both big and small.

Moose walks well on a leash, prefers not to be kenneled but can be.

He loves to play with toys and bones, can jump and catch balls super high in the air.

Moose is potty trained. He knows some commands(sit, paw, stay), is pretty calm when in the room with no dogs, will play like crazy with dogs in the room but will eventually calm down.

He does not get on furniture but sits in a padded chair in garage and on outdoor couch in backyard.

Moose loves to give hugs and will gives kisses.

He is very calm when taken to the vet - lounges in waiting room and exam room, takes food gently from hand.

Moose does have that "lab appetite" he acts like a starved crazy dog when eating out of a bowl, will try and take food from others in a bowl but waits his turn when hand fed treats.

He would do well in a home where there's a lot of action, someone home often he definitely need something to keep him busy if left alone or he will create his own toys. :)

Moose is neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. He needs heart worm treatment, which Lucky Lab pays for and then he will be ready for adoption. Either to his foster, or we will post him when he's ready for adoption.

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."
