My story

Up for adoption in Texas: Lucy.

Lucy is a one-year-old, 67-pound girl that loves people, toys, treats, and playtime.

She is smart and has the most soulful eyes. She was picked up as a stray and we think she may have never lived in a home or family setting before. Lucy needed a bit of let's say, "refinement."

Lucy has been staying with an amazing positive reinforcement trainer where she has learned basic manners to help her be the best housemate and companion she can be. She has learned how to appropriately seek out attention from her humans and sit and wait patiently to receive affection. She has learned when to relax and be calm. She’s an excellent listener, even when interested in something. Her trainer has a pig and Lucy loves to sniff him when he's napping. But when her trainer asks her to "leave it" Lucy will stop what she’s doing and pay attention. She gets a lot of treats and positive reinforcement for leaving things that are not safe for her to interact with or explore.

Lucy walks well on a leash, is crate trained. She loves toys, tummy rubs, snuggles, and enrichment activities like foraging for special treats and solving puzzles. She needs physical and mental stimulation.

Lucy would do best in an active home with someone that is home quite a bit. She would do best with a job, like agility or any activity she can do alongside her favorite human. She really enjoys socializing with other dogs in the training program and met many dogs of different breeds and sizes. She would do well with another dog in her forever home. We'd recommend a meet and greet with anyone who has a current dog.

Lucy needs an outlet for her energy. As she matures, these tendencies should level out, but consistency in expectations is the best way to manage energy and behavior. Because of her size and puppy-like behaviors, kids 13+ are best.

Her trainer has offered to continue working with Lucy and her new family when she’s adopted. So that's great news!

Lucy is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and housebroken. Apply at www.LuckyLabRescue.com

Go meet their pets

We are a foster based rescue. If you become an approved adopter we will make arrangements to meet the dog you are interested in. The great news is our dogs come house trained, they learn to live in a home and household and they are all "vetted" vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. Thank you !

More about this rescue

Lucky Lab Rescue and Adoption is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) approved rescue organization whose mission is to reduce the euthanasia rates and inhumane treatment of Labrador Retrievers and lab mixes and find them loving forever homes. Most labs that come into Lucky Lab Rescue are from municipal and county shelters in Texas. Most are at risk of euthanasia, usually due to overcrowded conditions, great dogs, who ended up in a bad spot. 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.
