My story

"Pick me! Pick me! I might just be the cutest Lab mix in the Lone Star State with my cute ears. My name is Shadow, and I'm up for adoption in Texas!"

Shadow is about one-year-old, and he weighs 50 pounds.

Like a typical young dog, Shadow has lots of energy and loves to play. But he does very well in his crate and can be calm. He's housebroken, vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. He'd be a great hiking buddy or possibly running pal (when it's not 100 degrees out, of course!)

He gets along with most dogs, for some reason, he isn't a fan of one dog he knows. We're not sure why. So if an adopter has another dog, we'd recommend a meet and greet first.

Shadow has been non-reactive to cats, though. In fact, we had him cat tested, and we're told, "The cats checked him out from afar, then jumped right down and started rubbing on him. He wasn't so sure about it, but he stayed calm and gave no red flags." Of course, this isn't a guarantee he'd get along with all cats -- but the brave, dog-savvy kitties seem to have the upper hand.

We'd like anyone who adopts Shadow to be an experienced dog owner and continue the positive reinforcement training he's received. We think Shadow is very smart and would love the stimulation and attention he receives during training. He'd do best in a home with a fenced-in yard and adults and or adults and kids over 15. Shadow also needs exercise and playtime to exercise his own inner puppy.

Shadow has a lot of love to give, and we'd love for him to find a wonderful forever home.

Additional adoption info

Potential adopters must fill out an application and a Lucky Lab representative will follow up with both a phone and home interview. Our adoption fee includes all vaccinations, microchip, spay or neuter and a heart worm test and treatment for heart worm if needed.

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.
