Facts about Brownie

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever

  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Brownie: 9-year-old female chocolate Lab – 39 pounds

Starved and neglected, Brownie came to Lab Rescue after she was seized from her owner by a local county animal services. Emaciated and near death, local authorities took custody of her and immediately began treating her severe neglect, finding that she was suffering from diabetes. When local authorities decided not to charge the former owner with animal abuse, we had the pleasure of bringing her into our Lab Rescue program to nurse her back to health and find her a new forever home.

What Buddy’s foster says:

Brownie is a delightfully sweet, affectionate pup who loves being with people. She is a happy girl who constantly wags her tail! Currently she is getting two to three short walks per day, the length of which can be increased as she gains strength. Her energy level is moderately high, but she settles down easily when it's time. Brownie gets along well with my two dogs and she has reacted nicely when she has been introduced to other dogs. She is eating well and loves a special treat every so often!

What Buddy’s Rescue Rep says:

She is currently with a foster receiving twice daily insulin shots and plenty of high quality food. Brownie’s owner will be required to provide her with daily insulin shots to manage her blood glucose levels. The goal is to get Brownie up to ~60 pounds and stabilize her blood glucose levels. Brownie is located in Pleasanton.

Brownie’s rescue is being financially enabled by her “Rescue Sponsor” Teresa and Brett B of Oakland with additional contributions from Nicole M of Cambell, KatieLou and Ron E of Oakley, Katelyn R of Tiburon, Mark S of Rocklin, and John B of Gualala. Thank you all for your support of Brownie’s rescue and recovery.
If you are interested in Brownie, call, text, or email Rescue Rep Dave, 415-686-4248,

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

About Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Rescue is an all-volunteer, 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that facilitates the placement of unwanted Labrador Retrievers into loving new homes. We have a spay/neuter requirement for all dogs that we place. If a dog has been abused or needs medical attention, we provide emotional and medical rehabilitation. Individuals who desire to adopt Labrador Retrievers complete an application form and, upon acceptance, are introduced to potential pets. Our purpose is solely to provide good homes for Labrador Retrievers who might otherwise be abandoned or euthanized by their previous owners. Through education, we seek to reduce the unwanted dog population and increase responsible pet ownership.

Come Meet Our Pets...

As an all-volunteer organization, we do not have a physical location. Labs that we have available for adoption are either in their current homes, in a foster home, or in one of the kennels that we use when no other temporary home is available.

Interested persons should contact the Volunteer Rescue Representative that is listed with any dogs placed on Adopt-a-Pet.

Our Adoption Process...

We request a modest donation from families seeking to adopt a Labrador Retriever through us. This is NOT an adoption fee (there is no adoption fee to adopt a Lab directly from us). The donation helps to offset the direct expenses of our Rescue and Placement Services. The donation is $350 per Lab.
