PLEASE NOTE
The web page is updated once weekly. The most current source of information of which dogs are still available is the CCLRR Updated Dog List, which is given to PREAPPROVED adopters. If you see a dog on the web page, but it is not on the adoption list, that means the dog was adopted between page updates and is no longer available. The CCLRR Updated Dog List is the most current info!

SUCCESS STORIES
From time to time, our Adoptive Families "report back" on their four-legged family members. It is so wonderful when we get these great stories and pictures from our adopted families. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do.

SENIOR and "Special Needs" DOGS
CCLRR has a special place in our hearts for the senior Labs we rescue. They are such sweet, smart and gentle souls. We are seeing an unfortunate and alarming trend in "Senior Dumping" Older Labs are simply discarded at local shelters because the are "too old". Imagine how it must feel to be in your golden years, having devoted your entire life to your family, only to be taken to a shelter and dumped. Their chances of being adopted from a shelter at their age are slim and none. They are frightened, confused, and grieve for their family. We want them to live out the rest of their golden years in comfort, surrounded by love as these special dogs have so much love left to give, and ask so little in return. Are you that special family that can give a loving home to a wonderful Lab in their golden years?

 Our Senior and "Special Needs" Dog Adoption Fee is $150.00

BAMBI --

                         
Adorable 3 month old black female lab mix. Like all little puppies though, she’s got a bit of rascal in her. She is sweet and confident, and loves to meet new people and animals. She’s lived with other dogs and cats, and bothers them all with her puppy antics. She is crate trained, so potty training her will be a snap. She already knows “sit”, but is still working on “down” and “stay”, which she interprets as “jump” and “jump more”. She would really benefit from an obedience course with her new family. Please consider the time commitment needed to take on a puppy. She’s got the makings of a wonderful canine citizen, but to reach that goal she will need a lot of patience and guidance. She’s ready for it, make sure you are too.

Concerned about combining a Labrador with other animals? You just need to find the *right* Lab(s). We added two Labs to a household with cockatiels, lizards, rats and a bunny ... And they get along *just fine* ... and the birds walk around on the floor -- and sometimes on the dogs!                                                                        ... comment from a new Lab Parent

BARBIE --

9 year old black female. Barbie was born deaf is a special needs dog, but she doesn’t let that stop her from being an active member of the household. Barbie understands hand signals and can feel vibrations on the floor. She loves to walk around the neighborhood, and her toy ball is her obsession. UPDATE: Barbie has settled in wonderfully at her foster’s home. She would rather hang with her humans than play with her two canine roommates! Barbie loves feeding time AND she will let you know when that is, she runs to her eating spot and waits politely. She adores men and children and her tail starts going crazy if someone comes to the door. You wouldn't know she was deaf - if she sees something go by she will bark, clueless as to what she is barking at. If you are looking for a housemate to sit at your feet or lay beside you at night, Barbie may be your dream girl!

BELLA #4 --

4 year old black female. Bella is loved by her current family. She has excellent house manners and is fully potty-trained. She loves meeting new people but would be best as an only dog because she doesn't do well accepting other dogs. Bella has been trained to do basic commands and takes treats very gently. She loves riding in the car sitting in the front and back seat. Bella is a talker and loves to interact with you and her toys. Her current family is sad about having to give Bella up, but she is not accepting of other dogs and they are a 2-dog family. Bella is good with kids and we found out that she slept with a cat at her previous foster home before she was adopted.

BETTY -- ADOPTED!! Thank You!

2 ˝ year old black female. This adorable girl comes to us from a breeder of top show labs known for their mellow temperament. Betty had strangles as a pup, recovered and is fine but the vet believes it stunted her growth…she is a “Lablet.” She is too small to go in the show ring and her elbows didn’t pass for breeding, although she has never limped. She will make a wonderful addition to some lucky family.

BON-BON --

          BONBON
9 year old chocolate girl who is so glad to have been rescued. We got a call from a local shelter a few months back about a sweet chocolate girl with extensive hair loss, scabby itchy skin, goopy eyes and a bum hind end. A real train wreck. We decided to get her out of the cold and spiff her up, rescue style. Since then BonBon has had several soothing baths, good grain-free food and thyroid medication, making her a much happier and more comfortable old broad. Though she’s no beauty queen on the outside, her beauty comes from within. She’s a mellow girl who gets along with everyone: people, dogs, cats. If you’ve got a cozy dog bed and some gentle pets, she’s the gal for you.

Dogs are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.    ~ Roger Caras

CARLY --

                         
4 year old yellow female. Carly has been an absolute joy since she walked into our house. She is housebroken, quickly learned the doggie doors, gets along with the other dogs, and loves humans. She is a petite size, about 20 inches tall and weighs about 70 lbs. Carly loves to eat and will check out what is on the counter (but has not snagged any food.) We are working to correct this. She does respond very well to off, and knows sit and shake. She LOVES to play ball and is very competitive at it, beating the other dogs to the ball time and time again. She has managed to find six of the balls in the house, when our dogs have trouble finding just one. She is very mellow, but does get excited when played with. Carly would do best in a house without a very dominant dog. She will stand up for herself and growl back if growled at. Carly would be a delightful addition to your household.

You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, "Wow, you're right! I never would've thought of that!"       ~ Dave Barry
The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.     ~ Anonymous
Want to Know How To Adopt one of these nice Labbies?
I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent, devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source. - Doris Day

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown

NOAH --

            
17 month old, 60 lb. black male lab mix. We think Noah is part lab and part teddy bear...he has the softest coat. His foster says, “I've had many dogs in my life and there is something truly unique and special about this pup. He's the kind of dog that stays in your heart for the rest of your life. He has quickly found a place in mine.” Noah loves to be close to his person and if you're sitting in one place for more than a moment his head will be on your lap. He smiles when you come home and when he gets a good back scratch. He will sit next to you on the couch or cuddle up next to you in bed if you let him but he's happy sleeping on his bed as long as it's close by. He still needs a little help with manners around other dogs, he gets so excited he can be difficult to contain, but when he's allowed to play off the leash he is responsive and listens to commands fairly well. He has done well with the doggie door and has been allowed access to the house while his foster is away. He will bark if someone comes to the door or if he sees another dog while riding in the car but is otherwise very quiet. Noah would be very happy in a home with another dog and with a family that will give him lots of love. He would do well with a family that has kids as long as his puppy energy was monitored around little ones. He loves his walks and when his foster takes him where he can run off the leash he is in his glory. He is easier to handle after he's had a chance to run and play.

A dog is the only thing on Earth what loves you more than he loves himself.     ~ Josh Billings
Labrador Retriever Identifying Features:
Breed Description
Although some are highly energetic, Labrador Retrievers are often thought of as having a happy-go-lucky or easy-going nature, Their calm nature combined with their athletic tendencies and stamina originally well suited the breed to be hunting dogs, and now allows them to become service dogs primarily in search and rescue and disability assistance. However, as with other working breeds, the athleticism of the pet Labrador Retriever requires physical and mental stimulation in the family environment. They will enjoy retrieving items such as tennis balls or floating toys that provide the necessary stimulation while taking advantage of the Labrador Retriever's excellent swimming ability. Labrador Retrievers are commonly quite food motivated, which facilitates learning and training, thus furthering the dog's bond to the family. Rewarding the dog with food for dropping a retrieved item can also help reduce the dog's tendencies for retrieving items not intended for play.

SHADOW --

7 year old black female lab mix. Shadow was given up by her owner because she is moving out of state. She came to us with her sister Sunshine. Shadow is on the small size for a lab, 45 lbs. She is friendly and gets along with kids and other dogs, but could also be an only dog. She is sweet, gentle and loves to sit at your feet for some attention. She doesn't need very much activity, a short walk down the block will do. She walks well on a leash and actually does a little happy dance when you get the leash out. She alerts you when someone comes to the door or near the house by barking.
She is crate trained and knows sit. If you are looking for a sweet dog to keep you company, Shadow is the dog for you! (Shadow and Sunshine are pictured with a regular size lab to show how small they are.)

SUNSHINE --

7 year old black female lab mix. Sunshine was given up by her owner because she is moving out of state. She came to us with her sister Shadow. Sunshine is on the small size for a lab, about 52 lbs. She could stand to lose a few pounds, but I think she gained the extra weight by eating her sister Shadow's food. So once we get that under control along with some short walks she will be at her ideal weight. Sunshine is friendly and gets along with kids and other dogs, but could also be the only dog. She is sweet, gentle and loves to sit at your feet for some attention. She doesn't need very much activity, a short walk down the block will do. She walks well on a leash and actually does a little happy dance when you get the leash out. She alerts you when someone comes to the door or near the house by barking. She is crate trained and knows sit. If you are looking for a sweet dog to keep you company, Sunshine is the dog for you! (Shadow and Sunshine are pictured with a regular size lab to show how small they are.)

"Labs like to play on waterbeds. Its something about the squishiness. They romp and twirl, chew on each other. Its really wild."                                                      ... a new Lab "Parent"
For me a house or an apartment becomes a home when you add one set of four legs, a happy tail,
and that indescribable measure of love we call a dog.       ~ Roger Caras

Old dogs, like old shoes, are comfortable.
They might be a bit out of shape and a little worn around the edges, but they fit well. - Bonnie Wilcox

"It comes to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog and I will become as generous and loving as they are."
