Meet Hunter
Available for adoption in New England and the Midwest

This handsome boy is Hunter! He is a gorgeous 2-year-old black lab mix weighing approximately 50 pounds. Hunter needs to gain a few pounds, but he will fill out into a magnificent dog with the right amount of food, exercise, care and love. He is a very curious boy and acts like a younger dog, still very puppy like, but just needs some socialization and training. Hunter is a pretty active guy, with some energy to burn, so we are looking for an active family who will take him hiking, or on long walks in the woods or on the beach. A large fenced in yard where he can romp and play would also be a plus. Hunter can get pretty excited when meeting new people, but he just needs someone to work with him on developing some manners.

Hunter is neutered, up to date of vaccinations, micro chipped, and on heartworm/flea preventative. If you are interested in adopting this great boy, go to www.luckylabrescue.com and indicate your interest in his in 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."
