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!

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

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
If you want a friend for life, get a dog.     ~ Harry S Truman

BUD --

BUD is an 11 year old 90 lb. black male who for about 5-10 minutes at a time thinks he's a pup…he absolutely loves playing with his toys, in fact gets very bouncy with them, then comes in and crashes. From his records we know his birthday is 12-4-05, so this is totally understandable. If we are home watching TV he has to be as close as possible; he squeezes his chubby (which we are working on) self in between the couch and the coffee table, looks at us and flops. He's the perfect fuzzy foot warmer. He also loves his alone time. He uses the doggie door to go out and lie on the deck. He's a bit slow going up and down stairs but does great. He has no food aggression with Luke who is also with me, he sleeps at the side of my bed all night, and we have had no issues with accidents. For his age his eyes are very clear and he hears everything. He barks when he's excited or if alerting to someone at the door. We have gone on short walks and he does fine but then sleeps the rest of the day. He loves kids, but older gentle kids are rough housing. I don't know how he is with cats or other dogs. This sweet guy just wants to be loved.

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


CHINA is a 9 year old black female lab mix. She is a sweet girl in more ways than one: she is a delight to be around and ready to give you unconditional love. She is also diabetic, which means she needs a consistent diet and twice a day insulin shots. She is mellow and easygoing so these are easy to administer. China knows her basic commands and walks nicely on leash. She has perfect house manners and is crate trained. China will make an excellent companion for a non-active family. She enjoys leisurely activities like car rides and tummy rubs. She eats like a lady, taking treats gently. China is very interested in cats, so caution is due there. She grumbles and complains to other dogs until they know to respect her personal space. China still has a lot of personality and spunk so will make a wonderful companion to a lucky adopter.

If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die, I want to go to where they went.     ~ Will Rogers
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



FIONA is an 8 year old 65-70 lb. black female. She is an owner surrender because her family is moving to the UK and cannot take her. Her owner describes her as mellow and laid back, and says she is very sweet and loves everyone. She likes to chew on her toys and loves attention. She really is the perfect dog but you will have to lift her up to get her into a car or use a ramp. Fiona was born with no hip sockets and had surgery to remove the balls from her back legs. She has no complications from this other than she can't jump up on a bed or couch unless it is low. Fiona would love short walks and just being with her people. She can be left outside if you need to do some errands but otherwise does fine inside. She was with a family with small children and is gentle with all ages. She is good with other dogs but has never been around cats.


               FRANKIE is a 3 year old black male lab/Border Collie (?) mix around 80 lbs. Looking for a warm smile, soft cuddle and wet nose to love?? This little boy is practically perfect in every way. He has quickly found a place in his foster family's heart and made great friends with their other dogs. His first love may be his ball. Frankie is a fetching fool but calms down immediately when playtime is over and the ball is put away. He learns very quickly and is happy following you around the house or curled up on his bed next to you. He walks very well on a leash and is beginning to come when called off-leash. He would love to have a doggie friend, but small children and cats might be a little too stimulating for him. More than anything Frankie needs a home that is active and will include him in their daily routine but will also make a little time to play fetch with him! He would do well with a family that could give him a job, like running, hunting, or agility. He has a lot of love to give and would love to give it to you!


Take one rescued lab, roll and play until lightly pampered, and then add the following ingredients:
1 Cup of patience
1 Cup of understanding
1 Pinch of correction
1 Pinch of hard work
2 Cups of praise and 1 1/2 cups of fun.
Blend well. Heat with the warmth of your heart and mix with owner until consistency is such that owner and labby are one.


7 year old chocolate female looking for someone to love. She is a quiet, obedient girl who adores people, belly and back rubs, and treats! She is crate trained, but prefers to lie on a dog bed beside you at night. Juno shows excellent manners with dogs, cats, and children of all ages and sizes. She is learning to play with toys and fetch a ball but prefers just hanging out with you. She is fully trained on basic commands: sit, lie down, go to bed, hug, and come. She has almost perfect recall in the back yard and pet store. She is potty trained up to 6-8 hours. She can walk nicely on leash but sometimes leads without pulling. Juno would be best with someone that doesn't leave her alone for long periods of time or has another doggie friend. Her calm and gentle demeanor makes everyone fall in love with her at first sight and she is an excellent candidate for a therapy dog. She is easily trainable due to her temperament and desire to please people. Juno is longing for a family to love and adore her forever as part of their family.

A dog is the only thing on Earth what loves you more than he loves himself.     ~ Josh Billings


                          MAVERICK is a 9 year old 119 lb. yellow male. He was turned in to the Sacramento City shelter when his owner died; he came in with a smaller dog and has obviously lived with cats...he loves them! He is on a weight reduction program after we noticed his love for cat food and has lost 14 lbs. already. He does have sore joints due to his weight and is on meds for that but he is also a large boned boy. A home with stairs would probably not be good for him. Maverick likes short walks, knows his commands, uses the doggie door, doesn't jump on people and loves to ride in the car He would love a home with another dog or cat to keep him company, and he would be a great addition to a family who wants a laid back sweet guy.

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.     ~ Anonymous


8 year old black male frull of life. He is so smart! He knows sit, down, shake, sit pretty, and he will wait 'till we say OK to eat when we place his food down. He alerts to go out to go to the bathroom and has had no accidents. He does not dig unless he spots a nice gopher hole. Doesn't bark .... I have heard him bark about three times. He does have a very cute grumble. Romeo has been around cats some and he isn's aggressive but our cat was afraid of him. He is buddies with our small dog. He sleeps on his pillow through the night in our room. He loves his ball and will play fetch. Romeo is a sweet boy! He will definitely win you over when you meet him!

Old dogs, like old shoes, are comfortable.

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


3 year old black female. Sadie loves people, she is crate trained, good on leash and has not barked once since she came to her foster home. She loves toys and a good game of fetch, but at this time Sadie is recovering from ACL surgery, so minimal activity is required. Sadie is an awesome, very cooperative patient! She will be ready to go home soon, and she is taking visitors right now.


5 month old black female. This sweet, sweep puppy somehow ended up at one of the shelters, and we have no idea who would give up such a sweet girl. She is so friendly with everyone, very mellow for her young age, sleeps in her crate quietly all night, and is not a barker or a big chewer for a puppy. She is so perfect! A family who is home a lot or one with aother dog would be best for this sweet girl.

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

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.

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

"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."
