AUGUST - AVAILABLE IN THE MIDWEST AND NEW ENGLAND.

My name is August and I am the four to five-year-old Momma of the Chicago Fire pups. See my tongues hanging out in that picture? Yah, ten puppies. Whew!! I'm ready for a forever vacation with your family... 65lbs of sweet, gentle and GORGEOUS. That is what you are looking at. I'm good with other dogs, seemingly house trained and I love people. With a medium to high energy drive, I am looking for a consistent walking, jogging, hiking partner(s). Does that describe you? I love to play! Do you have another dog in your home, maybe a neighbor with a playful dog or a dog park/doggie daycare close by? That always helps wear me out and settle in at home with the fam. Plus continued socialization with other hoomans and four leggeds is always a good idea. School has not been a priority of late, so if you could work on continued obedience training with me, that would be great. I'm a smart girl... I will be ready for my forever home in September. If you aren't up for a puppy, which believe me...I understand...I can be your girl. I still have some learning to do, but have had a great start and will be a wonderful addition to your family. Whatever that looks like! They're not sure if I've met a cat, so if you have a kitty, we can be sure to test me around one to see how I do. Just let me know! I'm ready for my next chapter... And that chapter will be in the same book at THE END. No more uncertainties for me, please. One family. Furever.

August will be spayed, microchipped and has been kept on heartworm and flea and tick preventative. If you would like to give August a forever home please complete our on line application and list August 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."
