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!

Labs Available through CCLRR

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 best...no rough housing. I don't know how he is with cats or other dogs. This sweet guy just wants to be loved.

BUDDY --

                         
BUDDY is a 6 year old 67 lb. yellow male. He came to us from the Merced shelter as a stray. He is a sweet, lovable guy who just want to be around you and play with other dogs. Buddy has a puppy-like enthusiasm and loves to be chased by my dog. He loves going on walks and we are working on the pulling. It appears he hasn't had much training, but he is housebroken, listens well and wants to please. He would do best with someone home a majority of the time or with another dog to keep him company. He definitely needs a cat-free household! Buddy is on the thin side and needs to put on a few pounds. He is an absolute love bug and will make a wonderful companion.

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


CHINA --

               
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 --

 

      
                 
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.

FLYNN -- ADOPTED!!   Thank You!

Flynn is an affectionate 6-7 year old chocolate male. He is very loving and loves attention and food like most labs. He gets along well with other dogs (but can be a bit possessive of his toys) and is pretty easy going and mellow for the most part. He loves walks but pulls a bit on leash – nothing a little training can’t fix. He is very gentle, doesn’t bark much (if at all), doesn’t jump up, and is housebroken. This guy loves to cuddle! If you like a dog who wants to be in your lap, Flynn is for you.

FRANKIE --


               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!

LABBY RESCUE PIE RECIPE

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.

LOLA --

                         
LOLA is a 3 1/2 year old black female with the sweetest disposition and wonderful house manners. She loves people and is very friendly with other dogs, house trained, crate trained and wonderful with kids. She doesn't dig or chew on anything, and she barks only to warn you that somebody is close by. Lola does need a little help with leash manners, but as smart as this girl is, it will be so easy to fix this and she is almost there. Lola came into the rescue with her friend Oakley and even though they can be adopted separately, they both need to go to a home with another dog buddy.

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

MAVERICK --

                         MAVERICK is a 9 year old 123 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 10 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

NORM --

                         
NORM is a 5 year old small black male lab mix, just over 50 pounds. He has the temperament and mindset of a lab...he wants to please! Norm is smart and learns fairly quickly. He walks nicely on a leash. He’s still working on sit, stay, and down. He has only barked one time since we have had him; that was at a neighbor feeding her horse early in the morning. He does want to chase our cat but isn't very aggressive toward it. Norm gets along with our three labs just fine. When Norm is in the house he lies down and is quiet. When he is outside he likes to run and play. He has a big heart and just wants to be loved.

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

OAKLEY  --

                         
OAKLEY is a 2 1/2 year old yellow female with the sweetest disposition and wonderful house manners. She loves people and is very friendly with other dogs, house trained, crate trained and wonderful with kids. She doesn't dig or chew on anything, and she barks only to warn you that somebody is close by. Oakley does need a little help with leash manners, but as smart as this girl is, it will be so easy to fix this and she is almost there. Oakley came into the rescue with her friend Lola and even though they can be adopted separately, they both need to go to a home with another dog buddy.

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
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

THOMAS --

                           
THOMAS is a 2 year old purebred black male who came to us from the Sacramento County Shelter. This boy just wants to be loved! He is a big boy, about 25" high at the shoulders and weighs about 75 lbs. And he is very handsome. Thomas has come a long way in a short period of time. He has settled down nicely and, while loving to play with his foster brother and to run on the treadmill, will just chill next to me like the other dogs in the house. He can be left all day while we are at work, but he would do best with a playmate. He is potty trained and knows how to use doggie doors. Like all 2 year olds he can occasionally get into trouble, so he needs an experienced lab owner who will continue in his obedience training. With continued guidance, Thomas will become a great labby.

WINNER --

WINNER “Winnie” is a 3-4 year old 65 lb. chocolate lab/German Shorthair mix. She is a very affectionate, loyal, and well behaved girl. An athletic girl…so a home with a large yard and the time to exercise her would be ideal. She will enter her crate on command when it’s time for a car ride. Along with being housebroken, she sleeps through the night on her dog bed at her foster’s home. She also knows her sit and come commands. Winnie has a high prey drive and some have labeled her an alpha dog. The best environment for her would be a home with a playful larger male dog...and no small dogs or cats. Kids 8 or older would be a nice fit. She is definitely a companion dog!

YUKON --

YUKON is a 1 year old 53 lb. chocolate male lab/pointer mix. He’s a friendly boy who likes tennis balls and his Kong. He gets along with other dogs, and has lived with cats and young children. He’s housebroken, crate trained and knows basic commands. His heartbroken owner had to surrender him because their landlord did not allow dogs. He would be great for an active family and would make a great running partner. Yukon enjoys regular exercise and play, but is also happy to just hang out and snuggle. It will be a lucky family who gets to adopt this sweet boy.

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."
