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

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. He loves kids. We have gone on short walks and he does fine but then sleeps the rest of the day. I don't know how he is with cats or other dogs other than thru the fence with the neighbor dogs…he just follows as Luke tries to chase them. 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 85 lb. black female lab mix. She came to us from the Fresno SPCA as an owner surrender. This sweet girl is a delight to be around and all she wants in return is to be near and follow you everywhere. She knows her basic obedience - sit, stay, down, come and walks nicely on leash. She is housebroken and crate trained. Sleeps all night on her dog bed pillow or in a wire crate with not a sound. She enjoys car rides and her very favorite is "tummy rubs." She also likes short walks and time to mosey around the backyard at her leisure. China is real friendly and likes everyone. Eats like a lady and takes treats gently. Not sure how she is with cats, she's ok with other dogs with proper introduction, but her choice is to be an 'only' dog. China will make an excellent companion for a non-active family.


COOPER is a 9 year old 100+ lb. yellow male. He is an owner surrender because his family is moving to the UK and cannot take him. His owner describes him as mellow and laid back, and says you can touch him anywhere and fall all over him and he just lies there. He mostly likes being around his people and loves food but who doesn’t? Just don’t leave anything tempting on your counter! Cooper could benefit from a doggie weight watchers regimen to help him get to a better size and he would love short walks. He can be left outside if you need to do some errands but otherwise does fine inside. He was with a family with small children and is gentle with all ages. He is good with other dogs but has never been around cats. UPDATE: Cooper now weighs 93 lbs., down from 111 lbs.

DAISY is a 2 year old yellow female lab mix. She likes lots of attention, love and cuddles. She knows the commands sit, stop and stay. She enjoys walking and leading on a leash. She will sleep in a crate or on a bed at the foot of your bed. She would chase cats, squirrels and birds if allowed. Daisy likes chew toys and bones but is possessive of her food and bones with other dogs; she’s OK sharing tug toys. She can also be overly playful with other dogs. Daisy needs an at home family to give her lots of love.



DALE is a 5 month old yellow lab mix pup. Adoption fee $250! Not sure what the mix is...she’s petite and has a wiry coat on her face and legs. Though at first a little shy, she warms up quickly and reveals her playful self. She is crate trained and learning house manners, and is very eager to please. Ari is good with other dogs and cats. Consider very carefully if you are ready for the time and commitment it takes to raise a puppy over the next three years; for though labs may outgrow their adorableness within several months, they don’t outgrow puppy behaviors for several years. You must be ready to deal consistently and patiently with chewing, digging, and run of the mill goofiness.

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 playful, cuddly 3 year old black male. He came to us from the shelter and we didn't know much about him--but this sweet boy has so much talent! He is now crate trained, sitting and staying, great on leash, and learning to do some scent detection with his toys! He does well with new people and new dogs but takes a little longer to warm up to men than to women. He would do very well with a doggie friend--he has really enjoyed his foster sister's company! Small children and cats might be a little too stimulating for him. Frankie 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!


8 year young 80 lb. yellow (almost white) male who came to us from the Sacramento County shelter. He is a big chubby love bug who needs to cut back on the treats...so hard with all that Halloween candy around...but we're working on it! He is housebroken but needs to be reminded that those goodies on the counter are not for him! Frosty is very playful with other dogs and loves his squeaky toys but MOST of all he loves to curl up next to you for some well deserved pets. We think Frosty will do best with someone who is home much of the time. He has arthritis and some knee issues, but he didn’t get that memo…he gets around just fine. Weight loss and supplements will help him. Frosty doesn't have a mean bone in his body and no aggressive or destructive behaviors to speak of...he has so much love to give some lucky family.


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.


LACEY is a 9 yr old 70 lb. black female. If you’re looking for a walking or hiking partner Lacey is the dog for you. You would never believe she’s 9 years old! Lacey loves her toys. The ball is her favorite and she brings it back and drops it at your feet. She’s housebroken, uses a dog door and sleeps on her dog bed. She knows sit, down, shake and walks well on leash. She may know other commands that I haven’t figured out! Lacey is OK with other dogs but would be fine on her own. We don’t know about cats or kids.

LEIA --   ADOPTED!! Thank You!

4 year old yellow female. She is very active and loves a ball and water. She plays fetch, drops the ball when told to and waits while you pick it up to throw. She needs an owner who can help her check her excited behavior and work on leash skills. Training classes are always a benefit for both owner and dog. Leia would do best in a home with kids 13 years old and over.


9 year old 95 lb. black male. He sure doesn't look or act his age, but we know his birthdate as he came to us when his owner went into hospice care. Luke is a very sweet boy. His smile is infectious! He is definitely a people boy but also does very well when he has been left alone, so far up to 6 hours. His leash manners are coming along but he is strong and a Gentle Leader really helps. Luke will use a doggie door but is not too happy with the crate. However, he does very well just sleeping on his bed next to his foster's. He does not gobble his food, he loves playing with his foster's grandchildren and he is good with other dogs and cats. He does bark to alert, but stops when told it's OK. Can you welcome this big love bug into your home? He will be forever grateful!

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


MANNY is a 6 year old 90 lb. black male lab mix (probably with St. Bernard or Bernese Mountain Dog). This gentle giant is the sweetest guy you will ever meet. He loves to snuggle and give kisses. He walks well on leash, knows sit, lay down and bed. He sleeps the night through on his bed with his blanket. He knows how to use the doggy door and will let himself in and out to go potty. He will benefit from a home with lots of attention and someone who is home a lot. He would also be best fit in a home with another large dog as he loves to play with and snuggle his foster brothers. He has not been tested with cats.

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


4 month old black female lab mix who came to us from a local shelter. She is an active, alert girl, learning the ropes in the house. She is figuring out how to potty outside and chew only her doggie toys. She loves to play with her people and dog friends, then crash hard in her crate. She’s also learning to be gentle with cats. She’ll grow into a great companion for an active family. Consider carefully the time and commitment involved in adopting a puppy. Be prepared for digging, chewing, and tomfoolery for several years; consistent patience is required as they become good canine citizens.

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

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.

Raven is a friendly, sweet 3 year old black lab mix who was rescued from a high kill shelter in the valley. She weighs 65 pounds, is microchipped, spayed and vaccinated. Raven knows how to sit, walks decent on a leash and is house trained. She gets along with adults, kids, dogs and cats. Raven is currently in a foster home in Santa Cruz with five dogs and 2 cats. She ignores the cats. She loves to go on walks and to the dog park. She likes to socialize with people and dogs at the dog park. She also loves water. When we pulled Raven out of the shelter she had puppies one month before and had a bad ear infection. She has since been spayed and her ear infection has been treated. She is healthy and is ready for her furever home. Raven is looking for a family who can spend a lot of time with her. She would make a great family dog. Please contact me if you are interested in Raven. Sharon 650-465-9669 or sharoncarrillo@hotmail.com


Zephyr is a handsome, 60 pound black lab mix. He was found as a stray in Stockton. Zephyr is 2 1/2 years old, is microchipped, neutered and vaccinated. He is house trained, knows how to sit, and walks decent on a leash. He is a smart, talented boy who knows how to use a doggie door and knows how to run on a treadmill. He loves the water. He gets along with adults but kids make him nervous. Zephyr would do best in a quiet home with one or two adults, no kids and as the only dog. He is not cat friendly. Zephyr is a very loyal and loving boy who is also protective of his home. He would do best in a home with an experienced dog owner who is home part of the day. Please contact me if you are interested in Zephyr. Sharon 650-465-9669

Shadow is a 9 year old black male lab whose owners had to move to a small apartment. They would like him to go to a place with room to run and play. Shadow is housebroken and likes to ride in cars, swim, and go to the dog park but he is more of a people dog. He lives with a Yorkie and a 1 year old baby but would do best in a home with older kids (or an adult home) as he can be clumsy with little ones. He will stay with you off leash and you can even open the front door and he doesn’t run out. He gets excited when on leash in new places and barks excitedly at other dogs and some people. However, the people he barks at get nothing but love and tail wags if they call him over. When not on leash he doesn’t do this. This loving, playful boy would love someone who would take him to the water and play fetch. Shadow is neutered and up to date on all shots. Please contact Audrey at audrey.blundell@gmail.com.

We give dogs the time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare. In return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made.      ~ M. Ackklam
"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"

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."
