Meet Boston! He's a handsome, mellow male black Labrador Retriever, approximately eight years old. Boston was surrendered to WCLRR when his family found that a new baby and young children made it difficult for them to give him the care he deserved.  Boston came to WCLRR with ear infections and a small mass. The ears have been treated and are healing well, and the mass was removed. However, his new family needs to watch for new bumps and have them checked by their vet. Boston loves to be loved by people and other dogs. He is happy to hang out with his people, snuggling and getting lots of attention, and gets along very well with his foster's three labs. Boston also enjoys getting out to meet new people and dogs. He loves the dog park, where he happily plays with others and runs to the fence to say goodbye to his favorite dogs and people as they leave! Boston's ideal home would be one where someone is home most of the time. Of course, he would love to have dog companions to play with and keep him company, but if he is the only dog, he will enjoy spending time with other pups by occasionally going to doggy daycare or perhaps pack walks with a trainer.  Boston has not been tested with cats. However, he does have some dietary needs and is on prescription dog food. Boston is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, and microchipped.  If you are interested in Boston and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "BOSTON" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Kona! She is a lively four-year-old petite female Labrador Retriever with a beautiful glossy black coat and the personality and energy of a puppy. Kona was surrendered to WCLRR when her person got a new job. But, unfortunately, they didn't feel that they could give her the time and attention that she deserved. Kona is a very social girl. Her foster family has another lab, and the two dogs love to hang out and play with each other. She is very comfortable meeting new people and dogs. She loves long walks and would be an ideal running or hiking companion. Kona also likes car rides and is happy to be the co-pilot on outings. Kona's favorite thing besides people and dogs are her toys! She will play fetch for hours, bringing her toys to her people to invite them to play with her. She loves her chew toys, and her new family will want to make sure she has a wide selection of Nylabones and Kongs in the house and the yard.  Kona's ideal home would be one where her people are around most of the time, and if she had another dog to hang out with, that would be even better!  Kona is crate trained, housebroken, and will sit for treats. However, she has been known to check out the kitchen counter to see if any special treats have been left for her, so her family will need to keep counters clear.  Kona is comfortable on a leash, but she does pull, and her new family needs to teach her she shouldn't pull to get to the things she wants to investigate! Kona is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.   If you are interested in Kona and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "KONA" in the subject line explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Lola! She is a super sweet two-year-old female Labrador Retriever. Lola is considered a Dudley, yellow with chocolate undertones.  Lola was surrendered to WCLRR because her owner was unable to give her the time she deserved. Lola, despite her young age, does not have any of the over-the-top energy some younger dogs have. However, she will occasionally jump when she's very excited. Lola will benefit from basic training to assist her with jumping and pulling on the leash.  Lola is playful and enjoys a game of fetch with a tennis ball or any other toy. She loves her daily walks in the morning and evening, but she does tend to pull if the leash is attached to her collar. A harness works well to keep her from pulling. Her foster has a pool, but so far, Lola has shown no interest in jumping in and having a swim. Lola was an only dog with her previous owner and her foster, but she gets along very well with other dogs. She sleeps through the night on a dog bed next to her person and is fine if left alone during the day for a few hours. Lola knows "sit," and she is smart. Her new family could help her learn new commands and maybe even some tricks! Lola is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped. If you are interested in Lola and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "LOLA" in the subject line explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Roman! He is a big, sweet, lovable five-year-old Labrador Retriever with a beautiful glossy black coat. He came to WCLRR through a high desert shelter, where he was listed as an owner surrender. Once notified, WCLRR immediately took him in. He underwent a complicated neuter surgery, and during the surgery. During his preop evaluation, the doctor discovered Roman is suffering from hip dysplasia.  Roman is doing well on medication to control inflammation in his hips. He enjoys several short (under one mile) daily walks and romping in the backyard with his toys. Roman thoroughly enjoys his toys and acts like a silly puppy when entertaining himself with them – flipping toys in the air, batting at them, and chasing them.  WCLRR consulted with a specialist to determine the best course of action for Roman's hips, and at this time, the rescue was advised surgery isn't indicated. Roman shows no signs of pain or limping as long as his activity level is kept moderate. However, he will need medication to keep him comfortable for the rest of his life.  Roman is crate trained, but he prefers to sleep on his bed near his foster parents at night. He sleeps well through the night and waits for his owners to awake before he starts to stir. Roman has good house manners and seems to know basic commands and how to use a doggy door. He did, however, have a few accidents in the first few days in his foster home. Once he became comfortable in his new surroundings, he didn't have anymore. Roman's new family needs to understand there may be a few potty accidents as Roman gets used to his new home. Roman is very food-driven, but he takes treats gently. Despite his fondness for food, Roman doesn't show any signs of food aggression. His foster found training is more straightforward because he responds well to treats.  He will sniff around counters and in trash cans searching for food, so his new family needs to take care to keep counters clear of anything that could be toxic to him and have trash cans with lids.  Roman will do best with a family where someone is home most of the day. He prefers to be next to his family and rest in his crate nearby as you work or watch TV. His fosters leave the crate open, so Roman can come out to snuggle or a belly rub. He may become anxious when first left alone but settles down after a short while. Roman loves walks and is good on a leash. He doesn't pull or wander. However, Roman tends to get nervous when exposed to other dogs and cats and can be leash reactive.  Roman has had training to work on his leash manners around other animals and is doing very well,  but for now, he requires to be the "one and only" pet in his new home. Roman is a big, strong, friendly boy who would make a great companion to love, pet, and snuggle. Roman is neutered, microchipped, and up to date with shots. If you are interested in Roman and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "ROMAN" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Stevie! He is a stunning blind male yellow Labrador Retriever, approximately six years old. Stevie came to WCLRR when his family could no longer keep him. Stevie is currently in a safe and loving foster home with a lot of experience fostering blind Labrador Retrievers. Aside from blindness, Stevie is a healthy, happy boy who loves his people.  Stevie is a delightful dog who enjoys having his belly and back scratched and being gently rubbed around his ears. He is fine with the dogs he's fostered with, and with an occasional bump here and there, cruises around his foster home with ease. Stevie can get up and down stairs without issues.  Stevie is housebroken. However, his family should let him outside regularly to avoid an accident. A nightly potty before bedtime ensures he'll sleep through the night. He is a typical Labrador Retriever and loves his food and treats, and while he gets very excited about his meals, he takes treats gently. Stevie's blindness is caused by cataracts, probably due to poor breeding practices. WCLRR was hopeful we could surgically correct the condition. However, during his preop appointment, the eye specialist found his disease had advanced to a stage where surgery is no longer an option. Fortunately, we can maintain his eyes with daily medication (eye drops) and prevent them from ending up with Glaucoma. A visit to the eye specialist should be part of his yearly health routine. Due to his blindness, Stevie has zero depth perception and could accidentally nip a child's hand holding a toy or treat; therefore, we cannot adopt Stevie to a family with young children. Stevie needs work on walking on the leash, which appears something his family never did with him, and now that he's blind, it has become more of a challenge. He is an extremely powerful dog and will need an owner that has good upper body strength until he learns better leash skills. Stevie enjoys riding in the car. He'll need to be partially lifted in and should be tethered so he doesn't wander around during your driving.  We'd like to see Stevie go to a home that has experience with larger blind dogs but it is not a requirement. There are some things that he'll need accommodation with and particular objects removed from his path. Once he learns the layout of the home, however, he can navigate it well. If he goes to a home with another canine friend, the other dog should not be reactive if Stevie accidentally bumps into or steps on them. He enjoys a good game of "bitey-face" with his dog friends, which is typical Labrador Retriever play. An Ophthalmologist examined Stevie, and their full report will be made available to potential adopters. He is up to date on his shots, was neutered, and is microchipped.  If you are interested in Stevie and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "STEVIE" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.  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. show less
