Meet Sebastian!

Hi everybody! My name is Sebastian and I am the sweetest eight year old guy you have ever set eyes on. I am always up for an adventure and down for a cuddle session - a little game of fetch in between and I will be your best friend for life! I absolutely love playing with other dogs and spending time at the dog park, or a puppy play date. One of the best things in the world is a car ride - anywhere! Put those windows down and I will hang out (literally!) If someone knocks on the door, I like to be the person who announces their presence to the rest of the house. It’s my job, you know! Playtime is my time to shine - I love to play frisbee, fetch, chase a ball or two, tug with my rope, you name it. I love a good hike, a swim in a lake and lots of socializing with new friends. I can’t wait to meet my forever family!

Interested in Sebastian? Please email us at info@labrescue-richmond.com

Meet Maple!

Hello all!! My name is Maple, and I am as sweet as maple syrup. I am 2.5 years old and weigh 80 lbs. I am a gorgeous female, yellow lab mix who sure knows how to have fun! I love playing with other dogs, especially tug of war! I get very excited when I see my humans and love giving them kisses, playing tug of war (is there any other better game than that??) and snuggling with them. I love treats and I bet that with their use, I could learn a lot more tricks! I know how to come, sit, no and shake! I enjoy going on walks and exploring the neighborhood, anything that has to do with moving around! I love running and being outdoors! I am crate trained and house trained! My favorite toys are ropes and nylabones, they are a great reminder of what I should be chewing on! After a lot of play, I like settling down on the sofa and snuggling! Nothing better in the world than a snuggle with my favorite people! I am looking for a family who loves the outdoors and exercising! Even though I am 2.5 years old, I still have the energy of a puppy and I bet I could keep up with you on a good hike!

Meet Willow!

Greetings and Salutations! My name is Willow and I am a spunky, 3 year old, female yellow lab. I am a very smart girl who loves being outdoors! I enjoy running on trails with my humans. I am trained with an e collar to follow commands. I can be sociable but I am very selective about my doggie friends. I must admit that when I play I get a bit mouthy but it’s because I am having so much fun! When I am with my humans, I really like getting tummy rubs, playing with a ball and getting treats! My mom says that if allowed on the sofa, I would be a lap dog! Who doesn’t like to be around people they love? I am still learning some commands and love it when special treats are used for teaching me!! When I am in need of something, I make sure that my mom knows it! Hungry? Need to go potty? Want some loving? I will talk to you just so you know! One of my favorite things to do is swim! I will swim after a duck, balls, sticks, anything!! I am an adventurous girl searching for a family who loves the outdoors and spending time with me!

Meet Tater Tot!

Hi everyone! My name is Tater Tot, or as my mom calls me “Miss Tay, Tay-Tay, Tater of the Tot Variety, Tater, Queen of Tots, etc!” I am five years old and a female yellow Labrador. I love to wake up in the morning surrounded by my people and will somersault onto the floor next to your leg in order to position my belly perfectly under your hand for belly scratches. I also enjoy chasing flies and unstuffing stuffed toys. When I say I love mornings, I mean it, but when it hits 8-9 at night, I like my space! Once my mom accidentally bumped me while I was snoozing on the couch and I looked at her - then moved over six inches. I do not do well with other dog friends and will be much happier in a home where I am the only dog! I’m very submissive towards other dogs and will give up my food the instant I feel threatened. Like the good Labrador I am, I will retrieve all the baby animals, carry them around in my mouth and bring them inside for my humans! I get really sad when they stop moving. I love basking in the warm sun outside so I would love to have a home with a nice backyard! I am a car dog through and through - I’ll stick my head out and feel the breeze in my ears. I enjoy walking alongside the beach, rolling around in dewy grass, chase bugs and animals and drink mud puddles. I can’t wait to meet my forever family!

Meet Abbey and Sadie!

Hi, I am Abbey and I am a 4 year old female black lab/shepard mix weighing in at 116 lbs. I love hanging outside and playing with my sister Sadie. When outdoors, I love sniffing all the new scents and trying to guess what little critter might have been there! I enjoy a good game of tug of war and then just relaxing! I love chew toys, especially bones and soft stuffed ones, but just because I can easily tear them apart! When I want something, I will find my human and lay my pretty head on their lap! I am such a good girl! I love getting praise especially when I follow commands like “sit, come, drop, lay down, leave it”. I am house trained and love sleeping on my doggie bed. I am a low key dog who is just happy as can be!

Hi, I am Sadie and I am the ‘small’ sister! I am 4 years old and weigh 70 lbs. I love playing tug of war with my sister Abbey or just chasing around the yard. I love hearing my voice when I play, it just means that I am having a blast! I am very friendly but a little shy at the beginning. I am very smart and already know some commands like “sit, come, lay down, leave it” and I bet that with some more training, I could learn so many more! I love squeaky toys because I can destroy them and then try to eat them and bones! I love chewing bones! They sure make my day! My foster mom says that I am a love bug, I love people and follow them around the house.

We are looking for a home where we can enjoy the outdoors and all the new smells that it entails! A family who will enjoy our company and all the love we have to give.

Must Know:

  • Zeus, 14 months old, male, black lab, 77lb.

  • Loves to play with other dogs.

  • Needs a social, active lifestyle that involves playdates/park play/etc with other dogs regularly (absolute best way to burn his energy).

  • Not good for a senior dog as he will constantly bark at it and want to play rough.

  • No cats

  • Kids 6+

  • High energy

  • Currently being treated for hookworms, 1 course of medication remains.

  • Needs training

  • Strong puller on leash

  • LRGR highly prefers for Zeus to be the only dog in a home due to the amount of training he needs

Meet Zeus!

Zeus is a very handsome big boy with an excitable personality to match! As you might imagine, this hunk loves playing in the water – which makes him excellent with baths, car rides – which makes him very portable for adventures, and being outside – perfect for summer nights. Tug-of-war is his game of choice, he also loves his kong, tennis balls and stuffed toys. He is very smart and treat motivated to learn; he is even capable of running short distances if that is your jam! Zeus LOVES play dates and is very social with other dogs and humans. If you are looking for a guard dog, look no further than his impressively deep bark. If you are looking for a companion, he has that covered too. Not knowing his size and always wanting to be with you, this fella will gently paw at you, lay his head in your lap and lean into you looking for some loving. Though large in size, Zeus is quite mannerly – he is house broken, crate trained, takes the opportunity to seek out attention while you are eating but does not beg during meal time and does well respecting his human’s belongings by not chewing them when left unattended. This sweet boy is looking for a devoted family who will laugh at his antics, love his kind heart and provide the consistency he longs for!

  • Jack, 6 year old male

  • Kid Friendly

  • Only Pet

Meet Jack!

Hi Everyone! Jack Jack here. I am a 58 lbs. male who is 6 yrs old. Did my handsomeness cause you to take a double look? I may not be a total Lab but I’m still pretty terrific! I’m really intelligent, fun loving and loyal. I’m great with kids and with a proper introduction larger humans too. I have good house manners, (I was allowed on furniture in my original home, but not here so I’m learning, which is okay with me), walk well on leash and am super easy going. I know sit, down, stay (but not for too long, please), paw, drop it and come. I’m learning more cues every day and positive reinforcement training is way cool and fun…I love treats and am an attentive, focused student! My favorite activities include being close to you, going for walks and playing fetch with the Chuckit. Tennis balls are my joy and sometimes I nudge the ball around with my nose and look soooo adorable. I'm a fabulous driving companion! Now being honest here…I need to be an only pet. I’ve had some bad experiences with other dogs (not my fault!) so I’m not comfortable around them. I also have a high prey drive so please no cats or any small animals. I will chase deer, squirrels, bunnies, birds and even bugs. My other downfall is I have separation anxiety… but we’re working on it and I’m doing better! I take medicine and have a special crate. I think both of these issues can be managed with time and patience. Won’t you please give me a chance to show you how wonderful I am? You won’t find a more devoted friend!

Meet Onyx!

My name is Onyx! I am a 1 year old black male lab mix who is 65lbs. I am an extremely friendly boy who just loves playing with other dogs!! Sign me up for anything outside! When I first meet my doggie friends, I might be a bit mouthy but that’s because I get so excited and just want to play! I love people and think that everyone should notice me and love on me! I get a big smile on my face when I am getting some love and just want to lean on my human to soak it all up! I also do the whole body wiggle when I am excited! Even though I love playing outside and running all over the yard, I also enjoy the indoors! I can happily lay right next to my humans as they watch tv. I like warning my family when I see other dogs outside or hear a noise that surprises me, I want to keep them safe! I am looking for a family who likes the outdoors, playing with me and my toys and who would love getting snuggles with me! Onyx
