Facts about Jake

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Up for adoption in Texas and New England: Jake.

Jake is a bit of a miracle dog. This poor guy was hit by a car and ended up in a high kill shelter. The shelter actually took pity on him (we think it was due to his charm and good looks) and did emergency surgery on him. Sadly one of his leg's was so damaged they had to amputate it. But that does not stop Jake!

He's what we often call a "tri pod" dog and he's fully functional after losing that bad wheel! Now Jake needs a home of his own!

He's been living with a wonderful, loving foster family and they say he is meant to live a long and happy life with someone who is willing to commit a lifetime of love and companionship to him.

Jake is about 6-7 years old and weighs about 58lbs.

Jake is a sweet natured boy. He loves car rides and watches the world pass by with great enthusiasm. He enjoys taking short brisk walks and likes to take in his surroundings.

He knows short commands with some prompting and is a work in progress; however, he is potty trained and gets along well with other dogs. Cats and squirrels however, welllllll, not so much for Jake, these small furry creatures are not on his list of likes. :)

Since he’s been in foster care, Jake has only barked twice. When he wants to go outside to use the potty, Jake will do a little dance and wiggle for you. He likes everyone he meets and has yet to meet a stranger. He is good with kids 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."
