My story

Available for Adoption in New England and the Midwest: Bear!!

This handsome guy has been with Lucky Lab for a while and we can’t understand why he hasn’t been adopted!!

He’s about 3-4 years old and has beautiful white teeth. He takes treats nicely. He’s very loving with people and can have some energy, but he has mellowed while at Lucky Lab. Exercise and play is what every young dog needs, and Bear would love a family that could provide him with that!

Bear can be dominant with other dogs, but not aggressive. He could live with another dog who is not dominant but would need a savvy and experienced owner. He has been having some fun playing with an exuberant puppy at the kennel! He should be in a family with older children only.

Bear is very lovey and sweet with people! He keeps his kennel clean. Like any young Lab he would benefit from training. He does well on leash but still needs some work.
Bear is gorgeous and a LOVE!

Bear is neutered, microchipped and has had all his age-appropriate vaccines. If interested, please complete an adoption application at www.luckylabrescue.com

More about this rescue

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."
