Meet Greta! She is a yellow female Labrador, almost two years old and one of the sweetest, loving dogs. Greta came to the rescue after her owner moved and couldn't take her with him. Greta already had a couple of litters of puppies. She was living outside, not being allowed inside the house. As she was an outside dog, Greta never had a potty accident in her foster home, which is remarkable. She has adapted easily. Her foster can't believe that she behaves so well in the house.  Greta gets along great with large and small dogs and is becoming friends with the resident cat. We had understood she was a backyard dog, but you would never know it by her evident love of stretching out on your bed or quietly playing with a toy on her bed.  Greta is a Velcro dog, and her foster mom nicknamed her "Shadow" because her favorite place is next to you. Greta is affectionate and will try to climb up in your lap to give you more love and kisses.  Greta may be shy when she first meets you but becomes your best friend once she is comfortable. She loves playing fetch and will play it with herself, tossing the ball around the house. Greta probably didn't have walks on a leash in her former home. Her new family will need to work with her. She is a strong girl and can pull.  Greta is treat motivated and is getting better at obeying commands. She is a smart girl who wants to please her person.  Greta has been spayed, microchipped, and current on her shots.  If you think that Greta would be a good fit for your family, please Complete our application, if you are approved to adopt, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and put "Greta" in the subject line. Greta is an exceptional dog. We expect a lot of interest in this her so please understand that we only have one Greta. There will be some disappointed families but know we always place our dogs with the best match. As our motto says, "We're All About the Dogs." show less

ON HOLD Meet Mattie! She is an adorable four-year-old chocolate female English Labrador Retriever. Mattie came to WCLRR by way of a local breeder who was retiring and reached out to us to help find Mattie a wonderful, loving home. Mattie is overweight, which is common in breeders. This girl produced a few litters of amazingly beautiful puppies. She probably wasn't fed a good diet, or she was on a self-feeder system. It's something you should not do with Labradors as they will eat until her heart's content. Because of Mattie's weight, we have not been able to spay her safely. Our veterinarian wants her to lose more pounds before the procedure. While she has been in our foster care, she has lost close to ten pounds. It is a slow process, but we know she can do it.  Mattie additionally should use a Slow Feeder bowl. Her new family will have to commit to continuing this weight loss journey with Mattie, making sure she gets down to a healthy weight. Her new family will be required to complete a spay contract, which Mattie's foster representative will discuss with her new family. Mattie currently lives with a few other Labradors, a small dog, and a cat. Mattie loves them all, even the cat! We haven't found anything that Mattie doesn't love; people, dogs, cats, and kids are all friends! She is gentle, loving, and friendly to all creatures and humans. Mattie sleeps soundly on a dog bed alongside her foster mom. Mattie is completely housebroken and uses the doggy door in her foster home. Mattie is a low key girl. She does love a game of fetch and then chooses to come back inside and lounge. Mattie loves going for her walks in the neighborhood and enjoys the sights, smells, and passerby's attention.  Mattie is excellent in the car. She is getting better about getting out of the vehicle using a ramp due to her weight. We don't want excess stress on her joints.  Mattie has had a complete physical, ears treated, bloodwork, shots and microchipped, and other than the excess weight, she is a very healthy dog.   Mattie's an exceptional dog. We expect a lot of interest in her, so please understand that we only have one Mattie. There will be some disappointed families, but please know we always place our dogs with the best match. As our motto says, "We're All About the Dogs." To adopt Mattie, complete an online application on our website. After you're approved to adopt, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org, expressing interest in adding Mattie to your family.  show less

Meet May! She is a gorgeous 6-7-year-old female yellow Labrador. May became a WCLRR pup when she found wandering in a neighborhood. May's family never came for her.  May can be a little shy when first meeting someone. After a little time, she will warm up and come around and be a big cuddle bug. May gets along well with all the dogs in her foster home, an adult Labrador and two small adult terriers. She hasn't had any interactions with cats.  It appears that May favors women. It can take her a little longer to warm up to men. She is a little spooked by loud voices, noises, and active children. Thus, we cannot place May in a home with young kids or very active homes. May does her best in calmer environments where there aren't many loud noises and quick movements.  May loves to chew on her toys and is particularly fond of tennis balls, Nylabones, and antlers. She is well behaved when left alone in the house, but starting her new family will want to monitor her and make sure she feels secure, and her self-esteem will grow.  May is gaining confidence during walks. While she is hesitant to leave the house on a leash at first once going, she does great. She also does well during rides in the car. We are not sure about May's past. It appears she had at least one puppy litter. May is now spayed, and she had complete bloodwork, fecal, urine analysis, microchipped, vaccinations, and a full exam done by our veterinarian.  If you have a calm, peaceful home and have the patience to allow this girl to adjust to her new environment, she will blossom and shine!  If your interested in May, please complete our online application. If you're approved to adopt, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and put "May" in the subject line and let us know why May would be a good fit in your home.  May is an exceptional dog. We expect a lot of interest in this her so please understand that we only have one May. There will be some disappointed families but know we always place our dogs with the best match.

ON HOLD. Meet Trudy! She's a gorgeous, smart, and athletic yellow labby girl, approximately  2 to 3 years old. At home, Trudy is a perfectly well-behaved pup, who is sweet and polite and loves to sleep (she sleeps through the night and then some!).  Trudy was never walked on a leash in her previous home and is working on how to be a good girl while passing by other dogs and people.   In the time her foster parents have had her, she's made a lot of progress on the leash.  Trudy will need additional training so that she understands that she doesn't need to pull or bark at other dogs while on a walk.   Trudy is receiving some remote training from our resident volunteer dog trainer while at her foster home. Unfortunately, due to the "Stay at home order," our trainer is not able to meet Trudy and her foster parents in person.  We are confident she can overcome it with some more training and more importantly, love. She's so easy to love! Trudy is smart and responsive to commands – she knows how to sit, lay, give her paw, and LOVES to fetch.  She loves to chew toys also and knows not to chew on things that aren't hers.  She isn't food or toy aggressive.  Her new home must have appropriate chew toys and bones, such as Antlers, Nylabones, and Kongs, at her disposal. Trudy is house trained and is rather easy-going about what time she goes out. She prefers to slowly wake up, eat her breakfast, and hang out a little before she goes for a walk.  Trudy loves to sit near the windows of the house and watch the birds and people walking by. She's a very loyal companion who loves spending time with you. Trudy had may have had a bad experience with dogs in her past, and as a result, she's a little untrusting and scared of other dogs. Her story is she was bullied by several other dogs that were in the home.  Because of this, we believe her perfect furever place would be one without other dogs.  Trudy has not been tested around cats or small children.  She is a doll and needs a stable home where she will be loved and cherished.  Trudy is spayed, microchipped and up to date on her shots. If you believe you are a perfect home for Trudy and have already sent in your application and are approved, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and express your interest in meeting Trudy. show less
