My story

Available for adoption in New England: Bolt

Meet the handsome Bolt, who is about 1 year of age and 55 pounds. He looks like a Lab mix, maybe with a little Spaniel in him.

Bolt came with Mama Bailey and the “B” litter into Lucky Lab Rescue a while back. How fortunate for them!!!! You see, this beautiful family was found abandoned and were taken in to be readied for a warm and caring forever life with some lucky families!

Bolt is the older brother to the “B” litter from a previous litter Mama Bailey had. All but two of his little brothers and sisters have been adopted, as has Mama Bailey. They are all gorgeous and doing very well in their adoptive homes! Now it’s Bolt’s turn.

Bolt is a beautiful boy! He is very mild and has shown no aggression with humans or other dogs. In fact, he loves other dogs!! He is under-socialized and is shy. Lucky Lab is working on his socialization and leash training, and he is doing very well and adapting! He keeps his kennel clean, knowing to do his business outside.

Bolt is ready for a family that will be patient with his shyness and continue to work on socialization with him. He would do very well in a family who has another dog, one who is a leader that can show him the ropes and help him build his confidence. He would be fine with older kids who know to be respectful.
Rescuing a shyer dog who hasn’t had life easy is so rewarding!! It’s amazing to watch a dog just blossom over time and evolve into a happy and relaxed life-long companion!!!

Because Bolt is young, he of course will need continued training and opportunity for play and exercise. Bolt is neutered and has all the appropriate vaccinations. He is micro-chipped and on preventives for heartworm and flea/tick. If interested, please complete the 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."
