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.

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

ABBY is a 6 year old black female about 68 lbs. She is a sweet girl who just wants love. She loves to gives kisses and get belly rubs. She doesn't care for loud noises and therefore would do well in a home with kids over the age of 12. She is dog friendly as long as the dog is calm. She gives a little warning growl if she doesn't care for the animal. Abby is scared of stairs, so no second story homes please. She loves to cuddle, play with her toys and fetch, but is not too sure about water. Abby is recovering nicely after being kicked at her former home. She’s been x-rayed -- no broken bones and her hips are fine, but she's slow to get up in the morning due to trauma to her hind legs. Once up she is happy as can be! Abby will be a great addition to any home and is happy just going on a few walks a day or having a day full of activities.



           ANGEL 7-8 year old, 70 lb. black female. I adopted Angel last spring but my 11 year old Golden is just too sensitive to accept another dog and I am saddened to give her up. Angel is a very sweet, affectionate girl with a soft temperament. Although she can go on a brisk 2 to 3 mile walk, she needs help getting into a vehicle (she will use a car ramp) and needs a home without stairs. Angel also needs to have someone with her most of the time – she’s not destructive, but will bark and cry while you’re gone. I think she would be very good if you wanted to take her to work. She sleeps quietly by my bed all night without a peep - occasionally snores, but not loud. She is housebroken but will not go unless you go out with her and wait until she does her business...she hates to be outside by herself. Angel will follow you everywhere you go, but will settle on her bed when told to. She knows sit, stay, sometimes down and has very good recall. She doesn’t play with toys or other dogs but she does like to chase anything that runs (squirrels, cats, small dogs, etc., although she lived with small dogs and cats in foster homes and ignored them). Like most Labs, Angel loves attention most of all. She will push another dog away for it, but does seem to want to bond with one, so I think she would do well with a very easy-going but confident dog. I also think she would like to be outside more than I am, so someone that likes to spend a lot of time in the yard would be great. I’m hoping her new adopters will continue with her twice a day walks (she really, really LOVES her walks – almost as much as food) to keep her weight in check and her joints limber, not lock her outside, spend as much time with her as possible, and spoil and love her for the rest of her life because she deserves it.

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


BARLEY 1 year old, 78 lb. yellow male. This boy is an adorable big puppy who is just the biggest love! He reminds us of the cartoon character Clifford with his large feet, ears, droopy face and lanky gait. He loves to have his chin rubbed and will immediately flop over onto his back for belly rubs when meeting people! Barley plays well with small and large dogs. He is extremely curious and will chase anything small or large (deer) that runs away. He has been exposed to cats but has not been left in a room with them. He really should have another big dog to play with or a runner in the family. We have had him around children of all ages and he was the perfect gentleman, sweet and polite without being overly excited. I would recommend a home with children over 8 as he is a very active boy and can forget how big he is sometimes. Barley is housebroken and prefers to sleep on a dog bed at the foot of our bed. We’ve been working on crate training and he is starting to do great with a little reinforcement! His favorite thing in the world is just being around us. He will follow us around the house and lie in our lap (if allowed) or lounge on the dog bed. Barley has a lot of love to give to a family and will make a great all around dog with some basic obedience training.


BELLA #4 --

BELLA #4 3 year old black female. Got a call, owner ill, could we take her Lab...well, you bet. Went to see her and found an adorable sweet small girl who had spent her whole life in a back yard. She had never been in a car, never been on a leash. Well, she learns so fast and wants to please. She rode in the crate in the car quietly, was totally confused by the leash but settled really well and will be so easy to train. Bella met the other dogs at the kennel with a wagging tail. Not even a raised hackle. We think she is going to be a delight.



BUSTER 3 year purebred yellow male. This boy is a PRIZE. He has been well cared for and well loved. Buster met his foster's 2 males with a wagging tail and off they went to play. He is housebroken, knows sit and is pretty good on lead. He loves to retrieve his ball and went straight to the toy
basket. Buster does love napping on furniture and put his paws on the kitchen counter...both were explained to him as being against the house rules...he grudgingly accepted. We think he is pretty darn wonderful.

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


DANNY 5 year old yellow male. Danny is a small chunky little boy at 54 lbs. who came to us from the Sutter County Shelter. So far we know he is good with other dogs, rides well in the car in a crate and absolutely hates being confined to a you blame him? Danny has finished his kennel cough quarantine and all his vet work. He’s a sweet boy waiting for his forever home. UPDATE: Danny needs a dog buddy or someone who is home a lot...he really doesn’t like being alone.



DINAH 18 month old black female. This small (50 lbs) girl came to us from the Madera County Shelter along with her sister Sally. She arrived terrified, we think she has never been out of her back yard. She is settling in and is growing in confidence. She is on kennel cough quarantine and as soon as she is in a foster home we'll know more.



                         DORY is a lovable, purebred 10 year old 70 pound yellow female. Her owners lost their home and now live in a duplex with no yard. Dory has been through obedience training and is housebroken. She walks on a leash without pulling. She knows: sit, stay, off, heel and fetch. Dory loves people (especially children) and is great with other dogs. She also loves to play in a Doughboy pool!

UPDATE: I am very frisky for a 10-year-old and especially enjoy the dog park where I am everyone's friend (humans and other dogs). I enjoy fetching the tennis ball with others. I am fine on a leash although I am a bit stiff. My foster mom gives me cosequin everyday and anti-inflammatories as needed. I sleep well through the night sometimes talking in my sleep. I enjoy a nice soft dog bed and sometimes cuddle with my foster's dogs. I enjoy toys, chewers and have been known to sneak treats from Christmas stockings and from the kitchen. My foster mom says that I am a joy to have around. One look at that sweet face and.....Won't you bring me home for the holidays?

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


2 year old yellow female. Poor little Ginger did not have a very good start to her life. She is not even 2 years old and she spent her whole life living isolated in a barn with many other dogs with very little to no attention at all. That is no life for any dog, especially not for a Lab. Ginger's luck changed when she was rescued from that horrible situation. Long story short, she just arrived into her new foster home and she is doing amazingly well considering what she has gone through. She gets along wonderfully with other dogs, but we don't know about cats yet. She will need lots and lots of TLC and some patience from her new family, but from everything we’ve seen so far, we are very confident that she will make a wonderful family member.



GORDON 2 year old black male. We found this handsome boy at the Stockton Shelter. His back was almost bald from rubbing at fleas. He was simply miserable but he sat and loved being petted. We treated him for fleas and tape worms (they come right along with fleas) and his back is healing. He is "bones" and needs to gain at least 15 lbs. Underneath all this neglect is a truly lovely gentleman. We think he is gong to be wonderful. He has a really funny habit. As he walks around he grumbles. We thought at first he was growling but he's not. He met other male dogs with a wagging tail...he just grumbles. He knows sit, jumped right into the crate in the car and walks on lead fairly well. Gordon is on his way to a foster home and we'll know more soon.



                   GRANT 5 year old 60 lb. black male. This small boy was a stray from the Redding area. Grant loves all dogs large and small and is great with kids of all ages. He does like to jump up to greet you. He rides well in the back of a car or SUV, is house trained and walks well on a leash. He loves his stuffed toys. Grant loves to play with his foster’s dogs and sleeps on a dog bed or prefers to sleep on your bed if allowed. Grant is a perfect gentleman and would love to have a family with kids and a dog buddy to play with as he has lots of energy.

HARVEY 10 year old yellow male. This sweet boy found his way to the Stockton Shelter and no one came for him. Well we scooped him right up. His coat looks awful but a bath will fix that. Harvey jumped right into the crate in my SUV and said "Get me out of here." This is the older dog you dream of. Housebroken, loves everybody, knows sit and down and walks on lead, gets along with everybody and look at that sad face...we just wanted to hug him and did, dirt and all. He wagged his tail so hard we thought it just might come off. Come see "Mr. Perfect."


HARVEY #2 --

HARVEY #2 6 year old yellow male. This adorable boy came to us from the Ripon Shelter. Why no one came for this special boy we don't know. He is mellow, sweet, good with other dogs and we think he has had some training. Harvey is over kennel cough quarantine and will shortly be going to a foster home. We'll know more then.

JACKSON #2 is a handsome 5 year old black male. He is on Doggie Weight Watchers and has lost 10 of his former 95 lbs. Jackson loves squeak toys only to pull them apart to get the squeaker out so he would do great with some real doggie chews. He did fine being petted by small children at the adoption event but because of his size, he would do best around kids 6 years or older. Other dogs are fine with Jackson and his former owner said when he sees a cat in the yard, he barks and chases it. However, he lived with a house cat that attacked him whenever she felt he needed it, and he never hurt her. UPDATE: Jackson is settling in to his new foster home and gets along well with his foster brothers. He exercises daily and continues to lose weight, now weighing in at 78 lbs. He's a good watch dog and barks to alert you of strangers. He is still in the process of learning his house manners but knows what is expected of him and with immediate correction he does what he is supposed to do. He pulls on leash at first but with one quick correction he does ok. He really likes his big pillow and his assortment of Nylabone chews. Ask him if he wants to go for a ride and he's in the car before you know it, he'll ride with you across country and back, smiling the entire time. Talk softly to him and he responds with a paw shake and a head cuddle. This boy wants to be with someone who's willing to continue routine and structure with him on diet, exercise and obedience. Just a little one on one attention and he's ready to please. Jackson is looking for his fur-ever home and wants to be a part of your family.


Want to Know How To Adopt one of these nice Labbies?


LUCKY DOUGHNUT is a 75 pound lab/pointer mix. This poor puppy has been bounced around to a few homes and then a shelter before his first birthday. Lucky is a beautiful boy! He is house trained, crate trained, lives for water, and loves to play with other dogs. He needs lots of daily exercise for his brain and body! Lucky is left in a kennel or crate with a frozen pumpkin Kong when his foster family is out for a couple hours. He has a very soft mouth but often greets people by jumping up and nosing them for a big "hello". This behavior landed him in county animal control. Lucky was head shy and aloof when he arrived at rescue. Lots of hand feeding, exercise, and training is bringing out an adorable and loving dog. He can be a handful on leash at first but has improved towards the end of our walk. He will climb trees to catch birds, chase cats, and shake the fruit off if you let him. Lucky needs an adult/teenage kids only home with time to let him settle in. This dog needs to know he is there to stay even if he tears apart a pillow or makes a mistake. Putting time in now to a dog like Lucky will bring a lifetime of happiness.

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

MALIBU --    ADOPTED!! Thank You!

MALIBU 8 year old AKC registered yellow female. This girl looks much younger than her pictures in person, and she acts it, too! Her owner says, “We recently had a baby and she is growling at the baby and has nipped towards him. We are uncomfortable having her around our toddler as she seems to get very anxious when he's crawling and walking. It appears to me to be jealousy as her growling is usually when I am showing her attention and our toddler is heading towards us. We have had her since she was a puppy and she has always been great with kids…except ours. She has been around kids of all ages since she was little. She has never showed any other signs of aggression towards people.” Malibu loves to play ball, ride in cars and swim. Until the baby came, she enjoyed jogging with her mom. She is an inside/outside dog who uses a doggie door, walks with a Gentle Leader and knows all her commands. You will love her when you see her…she really is sweet, just no toddlers, please!

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

PENNY --    ADOPTED!! Thank You!

PENNY 9 year old AKC registered black female. This adorable girl is actually called "Penny Short Tail." She was born with a perfect Lab tail but only about 10"'s very cute. Penny comes to us from a well known breeder and trainer of top hunting and field trial Labs. Penny is very small, under 50 lbs., and simply adorable. She has an "early gray" muzzle but don't let that fool you, this little girl PLAYS. Penny is incredibly sweet and gentle, obedience trained and would love some children to raise.

Labrador Retriever Identifying Features:


RAVEN 10 month old black female. This adorable girl came to us from the Stanislaus County Shelter. She is very small, only 42 lbs and terrified. She literally huddled in a ball. Her foster has done wonders and she is beginning to trust people. She adores children, thrives on structure and is so very sweet. Raven will need a gentle household…no rowdy boys having sword fights. Gentle children would be perfect. She has come such a long way and we want her to continue to learn and trust…when you meet her and see her sweet face you’ll understand.

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.


SALLY 18 month chocolate female. Sally came to us along with her sister Dinah from the Madera County Shelter. This small (50 lbs) girl was so scared, we think she had never been out of her back yard. She is settling in and so much more confident every day. As soon as she is ready for a foster home we'll know more about her.




SAMMY is a happy, fun and loving 9 year old yellow male. Sam really likes people and he is happiest when he is with other people and dogs. Sam loves that water and is great with little kids. He likes to play fetch and enjoys chasing tennis balls. He is house trained and has always been able to sleep indoors as well as play outdoors when he wants. He does pull when on a leash as he still has some good energy for getting out to the park, lake or river. He doesn’t like cats and will take off after them. Sam’s owner has had him since he was 1 year old and wants him to find the right new home…a family with kids that spend a lot of time with him and preferably another dog to play with. Sam would love to be able to continue to enjoy the water if you have a pool. Sam is a really special lab. He is very loving, gentle and super sweet. He has a shy, but energetic personality. He loves to cuddle up. Some family is going to be really happy to add Sam to their home!



SARAH is a 1 year old 67 pound black female labx. She was a stray, passed her temperament test at the shelter, but ran out of time. Sarah is incredibly sweet and easy to train. She really wants to please her foster family. She stays right with you off leash 90% of the time and comes running when you call her. She is crate trained and has not had accidents in the house. Sarah loves the water and toys. She needs slow introductions to new dogs and people (especially men) as Sarah can be timid. We suspect someone used a heavy hand with Sarah and didn't socialize her very well. She is a quick study though. After a short time Lucky Doughnut became Sarah's best friend and she loves to play with him. Sarah needs a forever family to show her the world and build confidence.

CCLRR needs more Foster Homes ... can you help save a great dog?


TANNER is a 6-7 year old chocolate male who gets along with everyone. Tanner is just a big teddy bear with a huge heart and lots of personality. Tanner was rescued from one of our local shelters. They were going to put him up for adoption since he passed all the tests with flying colors, but unfortunately he tested positive for heartworm so the shelter contacted Lab Rescue to help this boy. Now, two months later, Tanner is doing well after his very successful treatment. He is happy as can be in his foster home, and ready to find his new forever home!

SUNNY is an 8-year-old yellow lab or lab mix with a disposition to match her name. She is affectionate, playful, and fun-loving. Sunny came to Lily’s Legacy when her owner passed away, so she needs lots and lots of TLC. Sunny can sometimes be nervous in new situations, but is friendly with people and OK with other dogs. She will require regular exercise and is well-suited for an active family. 415-488-4984

MAX --

MAX is a 6 year old neutered lab mix who needs a new home because we are moving to an apartment. Max is housebroken - never had an accident. He doesn't like water. He knows "sit" "shake" and "lay down" commands. He definitely knows what "treat" is. He gets his morning treat every day, right after he goes out to potty. He barks at cats - not sure if he would chase or not. He is a good watch dog and is very protective when my husband isn't home. Very playful and very affectionate - nudges us during the night if he has to go out to potty. When my grandkids lived near by and visited, he loved them. They took him for walks and he slept with them. He usually sits or sleeps right by your feet. He has running spells when he is very excited not to be confused with a "fit." He loves to go for a walk, but not real good with the leash. Once we get started, he realizes he has to slow down, then he is fine. The most important thing to Max is his ball and if you throw it he will bring it back, drop it, and wait for the next ball to be thrown. He will do that until I have to make him stop. He can be mouthy when I come home from work because he is so excited to see me. Small kids might not understand. He tries to play with my little dog, but my little dog is not interested. He likes being in the house at night with his owners. He starts barking to come in around dark. He HATES fire crackers so I stay home every 4th of July for my dogs. I am in Lodi. If you would like to meet Max, please call Becky at 209-327-9248 weekends/evening or weekdays 916-734-6086.


Hi! My name's Shadow. I got my name because I'm like my mommy's shadow and I followed her around the house. I was like her shadow. I'm really sad because I need to find a special home where there are no kids, because kids scare me. I just want to find a furever home where I can love on my humans. I'm a good dog! I am potty trained (can use the dog door), I walk great on the leash, I'm neutered, and current on all of my vaccinations. I love to go on walks and be out in nature - I'd make a perfect hiking buddy! I am 2 1/2 years old and I weigh about 65 lbs. If you're interested in me, please call Jamie at (949) 328-0464 or email her at and she can give you all the information on me. Thanks for reading about me!
Love, Shadow


Sansa is the perfect Labrador. She is around 12 yrs old and has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, given parasite treatment/control, has had her teeth cleaned and a multitude of bloodwork. She is sweet, happy, and attentive. She loves little strolls around the block, playing tug with a rope toy, and just lounging by your feet. If she isn't sleeping, her tail is wagging, she loves life! She also loves other dogs, but has been known to chase a cat! Like most labs, she is very food motivated. She knows "sit", "come", and "go lay down"(if she is begging for food). She also LOVES car rides and going "bye bye"

Since being with our rescue we have found out she has lots of food allergies that probably went untreated for a very long time. She will need a home that is ok with her only eating her special dog food and treats (she comes with extensive information detailing exactly what she can and cannot have)

She currently has a bacterial skin infection that requires baths every three days, as well as antibiotic pills (I just place pills in her food bowl at meal time and she gobbles them up with her kibble). We currently have her seeing a doggy dermatologist once a month and she should be done with that this month (November) -- we just needed to get her an extra "push" to get her skin issues under control. Once the infection is healed she will not need either the baths or meds. She also takes a Soloxine (thyroid) pill twice a day and will for the rest of her life.

She has never had an accident in the house, never chewed on a shoe or laundry, and never shown food aggression. She just loves! Please contact for more information.


                    Ace is an 8 month, old GSD/lab mix with a great personality and tons of energy. He’s been raised with a cat and children and is really a big goof ball. He may take a while to warm up, but after that is a big love. He loves to play with other dogs and seems to get along with everyone. This guy is a big pup that just needs some attention. Ace loves being with people and is working on his manners right now. HW negative, neutered and current on all vaccinations there will be more to come on Ace!

El Dorado County German Shepherd Rescue (530) 677- 6444


Pepper is a purebred two year old female yellow lab. She is 55 pounds and full of spunk and energy. Pepper is housebroken and has been through obedience training, however needs more training to overcome aggressive tendencies. Pepper does not do well with children and has snapped at small children before, she is also possessive of her belongings. She would thrive if given a “job” by an experienced, active owner, and with someone who will spend time training her and working with aggression issues. Pepper has a relatively high prey drive and is extremely curious. She does attempt to chase anything small (squirrels and birds) that runs away. She needs a home with secure fencing and a semi-large backyard. She is kennel trained, does well with most other dogs, but does not care for cats, loves to swim and play fetch. Pepper is a beautiful, smart, healthy and extremely fast lab. She would do best with an owner that is experienced with training and does not have children. Contact Rae Stanich 916 712-5380 or

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.

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