My story

Available for adoption in New England or the Midwest: Clyde!!



This is one handsome boy who is such a terrific dog!!!! Just look at those eyes! Clyde is about 18 months to 2 years of age and weighs about 55 pounds. He came into rescue with Lucky Lab along with his sister Bonnie, who has already been adopted. It’s now Clyde’s turn, and he is so deserving of a loving family because he is truly a terrific dog. 



Clyde is well behaved, is house trained, and gets along well with other dogs!! Cats are probably not a good idea. He just LOVES people and enjoys getting attention. With back scratches and belly rubs, he will just melt into you!



Clyde is young, so he is active and loves to play.  But he is not overly hyper. He can settle well and is easy to live with. Any activity such as walking, jogging, hiking, swimming will be appealing to Clyde! He just loves to play and get love!!



Clyde is up to date on his vaccinations and is neutered. He is kept on monthly flea, tick, and heartworm prevention. He is micro-chipped. 

If Clyde seems like he may be the perfect match for you, please complete an 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."
