Meet April! She is a ten-year-old female yellow Labrador Retriever. April came to WCLRR as an owner surrender with her best friend June due to working long hours and taking care of a small child. April and June should be adopted together. We believe it is most desirable for both dogs and gives the new family the best of both worlds! April loves to chill out on her dog bed as long as everyone else is doing the same.  April will jump up out of dead sleep if anyone makes the slightest move to the treat jar or goes to pick up her leash for a walk. She is currently living with her best buddy, June, along with four small dogs and a cat. It's almost funny to watch this big girl get put in her place by a tiny dog when she wants to play, and he would rather sleep.  April and her friend June do everything together, from sharing sleeping quarters at night to eat their meals. April loves to eat everyone else's food, but since she's overweight, her new family needs to work on getting her weight down.   April has some hip issues, and per our veterinarian, the most important thing is to keep her weight down to help with the strain on her hips.  April is currently taking pain medication, an NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug), and a supplement (to ensure the NSAID doesn't harm her liver.) She may need these medications for the remainder of her life.   April and the foster family cat have met each other, but neither show any interest in the other, which is a good sign.  April learned to use the dog door on the first day and has never had an accident in the house.  April is a great house guest. You can leave her free in the house when you go out, and she will patiently wait for you to return. April is an excellent dog to take on walks and never pulls on the leash. April's favorite walking activity is smelling everything and enjoying the scenery.  April will do well in a home with a person or family looking for a couch potato. She will be happy to spend her days lying on a nice soft bed and a treat occasionally. April's smile is contagious. April had a complete examination from our veterinarian, bloodwork, including X-rays, and a dental. She is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.   If you are interested in April and June and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "APRIL and JUNE" in the subject line explaining why they are an excellent fit for your family. ******IMPORTANT-READ ME!****** If you have NOT filled out an adoption application yet with WCLRR, please click HERE.

Meet Buck! He is a three-year-old male chocolate Labrador Retriever. Buck is on the smaller side, weighing in at 55 lbs, but he is powerful for his size. Buck is very well behaved in the house. He is ultimately house-trained. He doesn't get up on furniture, but he loves to sleep with you in bed.  Buck knows his basic commands very well too, sit, stay, drop it, and come and respond immediately. He doesn't counter surf or bothers reachable food or trash. His foster parents say he is the best-mannered/behaved foster pup they have ever had in their home. Buck tends to be on the anxious side when he is exposed or experiencing something new, or if there is a lot of commotion, loud/high-pitched/volume voices. He will tip you off to his feelings by spinning in circles. He is easily distracted from this activity by calling his name and telling him everything is ok. You can also ask him to find a toy. He happily complies and calms down immediately. He wants you to be happy with him! Due to his anxiousness, Buck needs a home that is more on the quieter side. Because of this, we cannot place Buck in a house with children. He would be perfect for a reasonably active "empty-nester(s)" who will take him along everywhere they go, maybe even to work. He is excellent in the car and gets excited when he sees his leash. However, he needs some work as he is quite the "puller" when starting because he is so happy to be accompanying you on an outing. Additionally, Buck has some separation anxiety. Buck's new family must be willing to work with him and a trainer to ease this anxiety and make him more comfortable during your absences. Buck loves to play ball 2-3 times a day. Having a big yard would be a huge plus for this guy. He enjoys having a large selection of chew toys in the house, i.e., Nylabones, Kong Extremes. He will go through three tennis balls a day if you do not put them away after a game of fetch! Buck is not the typical velcro dog. This guy is more glued to your side and will follow you everywhere and lay at your feet (no matter where you are). He is a people dog. Buck is very good with other dogs, but he doesn't need canine companionship for play or pack support. He prefers to be wherever his humans are. He will often come to you when you are sitting and gently lay his head in your lap for some Labby snuggles—Buck is a sweet, compliant, well-behaved, loving companion. Buck has been neutered, current on his vaccines, and Microchipped.  If you are interested in Buck and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "BUCK" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Colton! He's a handsome eighteen-month-old chocolate male Labrador Retriever. He and his brother Sawyer were surrendered to a high desert shelter because of a condition called Entropion eyes. WCLRR was alerted to them via the Facebook group "Labradors Needing Rescue/Adoption from Shelters in the USA." and the shelter itself. We responded immediately, knowing full well they would require costly surgery. Colton has healed very nicely from his surgery. He is an active but well-tempered pup. He and Sawyer have exceptional temperaments (as all Labradors should) and settle after a few minutes.  Colton likes the swimming pool! He's an excellent swimmer. He and Sawyer will be water dogs for sure and will go to a home with a nice big yard to allow them to run and play all day long.  Colton and his brother have puppy energy as any Labrador Retriever will until two to three years old. They can get excited and knock items and small children over, so we'd prefer to place them in a home with older kids. Colton is a bit of a velcro dog, meaning he likes to be around his people more than his adventurous brother Sawyer. However, he still likes discovering new things and chasing lizards and squirrels. He enjoys being loved and hanging out with his people as well. He will need leash training, as will Sawyer, so his new family should plan on obedience lessons for both pups. A trained dog is a happy dog! No retractable leashes! Colton is semi-house broken, so his new family will need to understand there will be some accidents, but with some work and redirection and gentle encouragement, he'll learn to do his business outside in no time. A dog door would be preferred and can make the process go quicker.  Colton and his brother Sawyer enjoy chewing on Nylabones and chasing the ball. Please remember NO STUFFED TOYS for them. They also desire a friendly game of fetch but will need some training to return the ball to the thrower.  Colton is up to date on his shots. He's been neutered, microchipped, and had a complete medical examination by our veterinarian. He also had Entropion eye surgery which has corrected the condition, so he is no longer dealing with the pain he's probably suffered since birth. If you are interested in Colton and Sawyer and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "COLTON AND SAWYER" in the subject line explaining why they are an excellent fit for your family. Sawyer and Colton are exceptional dogs. We expect a lot of interest in these boys, so please understand that we only have one Sawyer and Colton. There will be some disappointed family's but know we always place our dogs with the best match. As our motto says, "We're All About the Dogs." Please respect our decision. There will be other Sawyer's and Colton's, and WCLRR will be there to rescue them. ******IMPORTANT-READ ME!****** If you have NOT filled out an adoption application yet with WCLRR, please click HERE.

Meet Elle! She is a chunky, adorable female yellow Labrador Retriever, approximately seven years old. Elle was surrendered to WCLRR when her owner was being deployed on a Navy ship and couldn't take her with him for obvious reasons.  He reached out to WCLRR to help find her the very best home, which we promised.  Elle is a great girl who could fit into almost any home. However, we haven't tested her with cats or small children, so for that reason, we cannot adopt her to families with either.  Elle is easy-going. Her favorite thing is to chase bubbles. She even has a bubble machine that her owner sent with her.   Her owner researched safe bubbles for dogs. Elle is currently fostered with a few other large dogs and gets along great with all of them.  She enjoys her walks in the neighborhood and even got to experience the ocean, and she loved it. Elle loves the company of the other dogs in her foster home and think another dog would be great for Elle to hang with.   Elle is overweight and needs to be kept on a strict diet so the pounds will drop off. While in our foster home, she has already shed a few pounds. Ella loves to be part of a family. She is a great traveler and would enjoy strolling through the neighborhood shops and outside diners. Elle is completely housebroken. Our vet saw Elle, and she received a clean bill of health, including a senior blood panel and urine analysis.  Elle is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.  If you are interested in Elle and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "ELLE" in the subject line explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family. ******IMPORTANT-READ ME!****** If you have NOT filled out an adoption application yet with WCLRR, please click HERE.  If you have been approved to adopt with WCLRR, follow the instructions given to you during your home interview (and in this bio) explaining how to request being considered to adopt this dog.

Meet Gracie! She is a female yellow Labrador Retriever, approximately four years old and lovable. She has shown pure and genuine affection towards her foster family and is always happy and welcoming to new people. She is always up for a belly rub and will slide between your legs just in case you forget.  Gracie will follow you everywhere you go but is by no means needy or destructive. She respects space and wants to be nearby. Gracie is well behaved on a leash and loves going for walks, and at times will encourage you to run with her but is never forceful or too much to control. She does, however, like to stop frequently to sniff and smell as much as possible. Some additional leash training is always a good idea.    Gracie is housebroken and has had zero accidents while in her foster home. She will always wait in the morning or when left alone to go outside. Gracie has also shown a lot of respect for the house with no chewing or destruction of any nature. She likes Nylabones and strong rope toys.  We recommend no stuffies or toys that Gracie can swallow.  Her favorite toy is a tennis ball, and she will play fetch and return the ball to your feet for a fun game of fetch.  Gracie knows how to sit and shake both her paws and does appreciate a treat as compensation. Gracie immediately became accustomed to her dog bed and slept well throughout the night with no issues.  Gracie is ultimately very loving and wags her tail and belly constantly. Gracie would love an active family that will be able to take her on walks, hikes and give her the attention she craves and deserves.  Gracie is up to date on her vaccines, microchipped and spayed.    If you are interested in Gracie and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "GRACIE" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Holly! She is a sweet and submissive chocolate female Labrador Retriever, approximately seven years old, with a beautiful shiny coat.  Holly came to WCLRR through a high desert shelter where she was listed as a stray.  Holly was in poor shape, with a significant laceration/injury to her front leg and a substantial skin tag hanging from her abdomen. Holly is healed now, thanks to the care she received from our veterinarians and foster family.  Holly is crate trained and can be trusted around the house. However, she prefers to sleep on her bed and has a very sweet snore when she relaxes. She loves company and enjoys being next to her foster family. Holly loves to say good morning by wagging her tail. She loves to be petted, hugged, and kissed.   Holly knows how to sit and wait for her treats. Her favorite activities are going on walks, going on car rides, and playing fetch with her tennis ball. If she wants to play, she will let you know by bringing her ball to you. Holly has many toys, but she is only interested in her yellow tennis ball.  Holly still pulls when going in walks, so that she will need some training. We believe Holly suffered some form of abuse by her previous owners, so she needs a lot of gentle reassurance and love. Holly trusts females right away, but she's had a hard time warming up to men. She does well with other dogs and kids.  Holly is housebroken; however, any dog could have accidents in their new home until a routine is established. Frequent trips outside and even a doggy door are recommended.  Holly might beg, but she will never steal anything from the counter or table. Holly will do well with an active person or a person who can only walk her once a day. Whenever she sees her leash, she gets very excited about going out!  Holly can get anxious at times and could lick her leg, causing a lick granuloma, which her owner needs to keep an eye on and stop her from continually licking her paws or legs.   Holly is a fantastic, loving, and friendly dog that needs a loving home that can reassure her she is safe and loved. Holly is spayed. Currently, on her shots, Holly had a senior blood panel, urine analysis, fecal and microchipped. If you are interested in Holly and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "HOLLY" in the subject line explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet June! She's a ten-year-old female chocolate Labrador Retriever who is much more active than her years. June came to WCLRR as an owner surrender with her best friend April due to the family working long hours and taking care of a small child. June and April should be adopted together. We believe it is most desirable for both dogs and gives the new family the best of both worlds! June loves toys, balls - actually anything she can carry around in her mouth. June is currently living with her best friend, April, along with four small dogs and a cat. She gets along great with the small dogs but not best buddies with the cat. Unfortunately, we do not think June would be a good fit for a home with a cat.   June is very active for her age and is up for a long walk or a light jog once or twice a day. She would also be more than happy to play fetch for hours in your backyard. June learned to use the dog door on her first day and will split her time between exploring the backyard and stretching out on a dog bed in the front room.  June and April share the same sleeping quarters and eat their meals side by side. June is wholly housetrained and has never had an accident. Even though June likes to play more like a younger dog, you also get the calmness found in an older dog. She will track her foster mom down to get a pet, kiss, and snuggle before she bounds off to play or beg for treats.  We have found she does not try to take food off the counters when preparing dinner, which is a real plus since she could quickly jump up and take whatever she wanted. If you are looking for a total snuggle bug who also loves to play and go on long walks, June is your girl! June has had a complete exam, including bloodwork. She is current on her vaccines, spayed, and microchipped.  If you are interested in June and April and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "JUNE AND APRIL" in the subject line explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family. ******IMPORTANT-READ ME!****** If you have NOT filled out an adoption application yet with WCLRR, please click HERE.  If you have been approved to adopt with WCLRR, follow the instructions given to you during your home interview (and in this bio) explaining how to request being considered to adopt this dog.

Meet Olive! She is an adorable 15-week old Labrador Retriever puppy. Olive's previous family reached out to WCLRR and asked us to help her find a new home. Olive is what we'd expect in a puppy. She chews on anything she can get into her mouth, including furniture, shoes, and plants. She will dig in the yard, nips at hands, arms and feet.  In other words, Olive is a typical Labrador puppy.   If you and your family are not prepared to work with a Labrador Retriever puppy, then Olive is not the dog for you.  Olive is learning to walk on a leash. Walking with another dog is helping her understand how to. She is 90% housebroken and will continue to get better. She is 100% crate trained and sleeps all night in her crate.  Olive needs the family with a "puppy-proofed home," meaning all items off the floor, all items removed from tables. , Other items including electrical cords, should be secured so she can not chew them.  All shoes, socks, laundry, anything that she can get in her mouth need to be securely put away.  Her family needs an abundance of appropriate chew toys for her.  Nylabones and Kong's are safe toys for her.  Olive's new family will need to commit to puppy training. Olive has already had some training and knows sit, down, and touch.  She is an intelligent puppy who is eager to learn.  Continued training will only help mold her into a good dog.  Because she nips, we can not adopt Olive into a home with small children.   She has not to be tested with cats.   Olive gets along with other dogs, and another dog in her new home would be great to help her learn. Puppies are a huge commitment that requires patience, understanding that things may get damaged by chewing or potty accidents. These things should pass as Olive matures and completes training classes.   WCLRR will adopt Olive on a spay deposit which her fosters representative will discuss with her new family.  Olive is currently on her shots and a healthy, beautiful puppy.  If you are interested in Olive and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "OLIVE" in the subject line explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family. ******IMPORTANT-READ ME!****** If you have NOT filled out an adoption application yet with WCLRR, please click HERE.  If you have been approved to adopt with WCLRR, follow the instructions given to you during your home interview (and in this bio) explaining how to request being considered to adopt this dog.

WCLRR was alerted to them via the Facebook group "Labradors Needing Rescue/Adoption from Shelters in the USA." and the shelter itself. We responded immediately, knowing full well they would require costly surgery. Sawyer has healed very nicely from his surgery and recently had some touchup work, so he still has some sutures. That doesn't stop him from being an active but well-tempered pup. He and Colton have exceptional temperaments (as all Labradors should) and settle after a few minutes.  Sawyer likes to dip his feet in the swimming pool but hasn't taken the plunge due to his eyes. We're sure once he's cleared, he'll be an excellent swimmer like his brother.
