Meet Bruno! He is a stunning blind male yellow Labrador Retriever, approximately five-years-old. Bruno came to the attention of WCLRR by a Facebook follower. After visiting our veterinarians, we got Bruno into a safe and loving foster home that has experience fostering blind Labrador Retrievers. Aside from the blindness, he is a healthy, happy boy who is caring and fun-loving.  Bruno is a delightful dog that, other than his blindness, is like any other Labrador. He enjoys having his belly scratch, being rubbed on his ears, and getting many hugs and kisses. He likes to play with the dogs he's fostered with, and with an occasional bump here and there, cruises around his foster home with ease. Bruno LOVES to chew on his toys. Nylabones and Kong Extreme toys are the only types that he doesn't destroy immediately. Bruno needs plenty of toys around to ensure he doesn't chew on valuables or furniture. If he tries to chew on something he shouldn't, giving him his toy will redirect that behavior. Bruno is partially housebroken. However, he should be let outside regularly to avoid an accident. A nightly potty before bedtime ensures he'll sleep through the night. Bruno is crate trained with a little bit of hesitation. Once he is in, though, he sleeps through the night. Bruno likes to get up early in the morning and may bark from his crate that he needs to go out for a potty break. He is a typical Labrador and loves his food and treats. Bruno's blindness is caused by PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy) and cataracts, probably caused by poor breeding practices. Fortunately, with daily medications, we can maintain his condition and prevent it from turning into Glaucoma. He also has some minor deformities with his front paws, but that doesn't seem to bother him and adds to his cuteness. The wounds he had when rescued have all healed nicely. Bruno is very mouthy and has strong jaws; therefore, we cannot adopt Bruno to a family with young children. Due to his blindness, he has zero depth perception and could accidentally nip a child's hand holding his toy. Bruno walks amazingly on the leash. For a blind dog, he keeps a pretty good straight line and doesn't pull on the leash. Gentle corrections keep him moving forward with ease. Bruno enjoys riding in the car. He'll need to be lifted in and should be tethered so he doesn't wander around during your driving.  Bruno should be adopted to a home that has prior experience with larger blind dogs. While he does great, 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. Bruno would do best with another canine companion(s). He likes to play in bursts and then lay down and gnaw on his toy. The other dogs should not be aggressively reactive if Bruno accidentally bumps into or steps on them.  An Ophthalmologist examined Bruno, 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 Bruno and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and put "BRUNO" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family. PLEASE DO NOT USE THE "ADOPT" BUTTON ON THIS PAGE IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED AN APPLICATION WITH WCLRR! Due to the overwhelming demand for dogs and the current shortage of Labradors and Golden Retrievers in need of rescue, your wait time to adopt could be very long.

Meet Henry! He is a handsome four-year-old male yellow Labrador Retriever who was surrendered to WCLRR when his family experienced a change in living arrangements. They wanted Henry to have a home and family who could give him what he deserved and needed. Henry has a wonderfully balanced character. He's a lovable dog who likes cuddling on the couch and will stare at you adoringly as he's a pet, but he can also be spirited and fun-loving while playing fetch, tug-o-war, or wrestling. Henry is housebroken and sleeps well through the night in a crate. When left alone, he doesn't show signs of separation anxiety. Henry hasn't demonstrated any destructive behaviors when by himself, in or out of the house. He's not food or toy aggressive and takes treats gently. Henry is an intelligent dog and knows some commands, "sit," "down," and "come," and in the short time being fostered, he has made progress with "stay" and how to master the doggy door. Henry does great on car rides. However, he is not a fan of getting in, so his family will need to work with him. Henry is really food driven and will dig through the trash to find food. He also tends to chew and pick-up items that are not safe. Therefore, care will need to be taken to ensure waste and inappropriate toys are off-limits, so he doesn't get to something harmful.  All trash should be in a locking container or under the counter.  Henry has shown signs of running out the front door of his foster home. Behavior like that needs to be corrected immediately.  In the meantime, all doors and gates MUST be kept shut, and caution used when opening them. As Henry becomes secure and confident in his new home, this behavior will hopefully change, but for these reasons, a family with younger children would not be a good fit for Henry. Henry LOVES walks and will get overly excited when his leash is brought out. He is powerful and tends to pull at first but eventually settles into a walkable pace. Henry has a tendency towards leash reactivity and may lunge or bark at other dogs he encounters on walks. His new family needs to work with Henry on how to greet dogs appropriately.  Henry is food motivated, so correcting his bad habits should be reasonably straightforward.  Henry is neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on his vaccinations. If you are interested in Henry and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "HENRY" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family. ******READ ME!****** PLEASE DO NOT USE THE "ADOPT" BUTTON ON THIS PAGE IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED AN APPLICATION WITH WCLRR!

PLEASE READ! RUSTY AND JAVA ARE BEING ADOPTED AS A BONDED PAIR. THE DONATION REQUEST OF $400 IS FOR THE PAIR. Please do not ask about adopting them separately. Meet Java! He is a chocolate 8 to 9-year-old male Labrador Retriever. If you look up the definition of sweetness in the dictionary, an image of Java should appear. He is a sweet small-sized, gorgeous dog. Java is a quiet and obedient boy who wants to love and be petted and full of kisses.  Java is excellent on a leash and loves taking long walks. He is also great around cats, small dogs, and other larger dogs, including his best buddy, Rusty.   Java loves baths and being brushed. He can be a bit timid about new things at first but warms up and comes out of his shell in a short time.    Java is completely housebroken and uses the doggy door at his foster home.  Java is healthy and bright-eyed for his nine years of age. He came to the rescue from the Apple Valley shelter after his owner passed away. Java loves hanging out with his Rusty. He is a great dog! Java had a complete veterinarian examination, including a senior blood panel, urine analysis. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, and microchipped. If you are interested in Rusty and Java and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and put "RUSTY and JAVA" in the subject line explaining why they are an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Leah! She is a sweet little three-year-old yellow female Labrador Retriever. When Leah was surrendered to WCLRR by her "family," we immediately knew she had an issue with her eyes. Leah was diagnosed with Entropian eyes; this is a condition where her eyelashes turned in and were hitting her eyeball. This condition is excruciating. She endured this discomfort her entire life.  WCLRR immediately took Leah in to have the corrective surgery.  After a lengthy recovery, Leah is healed and ready for her "furever" home.  Leah is an easy-going dog. She loves her daily three-mile walks but doesn't need much more than that. Leah likes to zoom around the back yard and will beat you at a game of tug a war every time. Most of the day, she will lay by your side chewing on a toy, a bone, or napping. Leah jumps when she is excited and uses her paws to get your attention. For that reason, she would do best in a family with children over eight-years-old. Leah has not had an accident in her foster home. She will signal you by standing by the door when she needs to go out. Leah also uses a dog door. She sleeps through the night on a bed by her foster mom. She seldom barks. At first, she was a bit leery of her foster dad, but she warmed up to him in a few days, and now they are best buds. She likes to collect her foster parent's things. Now and then, you can find a slipper or sock in her crate, which she enjoys if the door is left open. However, socks can be extremely dangerous for dogs, so this type of behavior must be discouraged. Eating is one of Leah's favorite pastimes. She requires a slow feed bowl, which seems to be working wonderfully.  Leah is a little overweight, and her new family should work along with their veterinarian to get Leah down to an optimal weight. Cuddling on the couch with you is another favorite thing for her to do. She enjoys laying next to you and getting scratches and cuddles. Leah could use some general obedience training. She walks ok on the leash but pulls for the first exciting minutes, then falling into a nice pace by your side. Leah likes meeting people on the walks and doesn't have a problem with other dogs. She is also ok with cats. Leah is the perfect passenger in the car but needs a boost to get in. She really loves to be with her people and would go to the moon and back with you. Leah has been spayed, microchipped, and is current on her vaccines. If you are interested in Leah and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and put "LEAH" in the subject line explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family.

PLEASE READ! RUSTY AND JAVA ARE BEING ADOPTED AS A BONDED PAIR. THE DONATION REQUEST OF $400 IS FOR THE PAIR. Please do not ask about adopting them separately. Meet Rusty! He is an approximately 12-year-old senior chocolate Labrador Retriever with a huge heart. He is very handsome! Rusty tries to be as active as his body will allow. He has some lumps and bumps that most labs his age have. Also, Rusty has a growth on his back leg that requires regular monitoring. Also, he has some arthritis in his rear legs, but that doesn't keep him from walking well on a leash for short distances.  Rusty also does stairs just fine.   Rusty is excellent with cats and other dogs, both big and small. He loves baths and being brushed. Rusty is delighted to be around his best buddy, Java. They came to WCLRR from the Apple Valley shelter after their owner passed away.   Rusty is fearless and is always aware of things going on around him; he's happy to send out an alarm bark when a stranger passes by.   Rusty is very affectionate and full of kisses for his foster and is a great companion for anyone looking for a senior lab! Rusty is completely housebroken and uses the doggy door at this foster home.  Rusty is currently taking some medication for his arthritis, and we have seen a significant improvement in his mobility.  Rusty had a complete veterinarian examination, including senior bloodwork and urine analysis. He is current on his vaccines, neutered and microchipped.  If you are interested in Rusty and Java and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and put "RUSTY and JAVA" in the subject line explaining why they are an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Tommy! He is an adorable 6-month-old male Golden Retriever puppy who will steal your heart. Tommy enjoys his outings with his foster family. He visited the beach and loves playing in the water. He is learning how to greet other dogs and is doing very well with his leash training. Tommy is a typical puppy. He chews things he shouldn't and is very active. He'll need correction and consistency. His new home must make sure items are not left out for him to chew. You must clear all countertops of dangerous objects and remove all electrical cords, shoes, eyeglasses, and remote controls. It would be best if you redirected him towards chew toys such as Nylabones and Kongs.  Tommy is crate trained and will take himself to bed and sleeps throughout the night. Tommy is housebroken. However, he could have an accident in his new home until he gets into a routine and his family understands his signals to go outside.  Tommy has the energy you would expect in a young pup. Exercise and training are needed to ensure Tommy becomes a great dog. Tommy would do well with another dog. He loves playing tug-o-war and romping around with another pup. Tommy will be adopted to his new family with a neuter contract. His foster representative will discuss this with his new family.  If you are interested in Tommy and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG  and put "TOMMY" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family. DO NOT REQUEST TO ADOPT TOMMY UNLESS YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN APPROVED FOR ADOPTION BY WCLRR. THAT INCLUDES YOUR HOME INTERVIEW. ANY REQUESTS TO ADOPT THIS DOG BY PERSONS NOT ALREADY APPROVED WILL BE DISCARDED! PLEASE DO NOT USE THE "ADOPT" BUTTON ON THIS PAGE IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED AN APPLICATION WITH WCLRR!

We expect a lot of interest in this boy, so please understand that we only have one Tommy. There will be some disappointed family's but know we always place our dogs with the best match.

Meet Wyatt! He's a handsome male chocolate Labrador Retriever, approximately two-years-old. Wyatt was surrendered by his family when they found that they could not give him the care and attention he needed.    Wyatt is a medium to high energy boy who loves to run and play with his toys. He sometimes jumps up when he gets excited, so we will not place him in a home with children under ten years old.  Wyatt is a smart boy. He knows to sit for treats, meals and putting his harness and leash on. Wyatt jumps in and out of cars quickly and loves going for car rides. Once Wyatt has a little bit of training, he would make a great errand buddy or possibly even a great running partner.    Wyatt is house trained and will stand by the door to let his family know that he needs to go out. He did have an accident when he first went to live with his foster but has been fine ever since – maybe just a case of nerves. Wyatt's adopters should frequently take him out when he first arrives until he gets used to their home. He also likes to checkout counters to see if there are any tasty treats left out for him. His new family should be careful about leaving food on counters and dangerous items such as medicines that he might try to grab, thinking they are treats.   Wyatt is a total love bug, extremely affectionate, and loves to be with his people. He follows his foster Mom everywhere, and snuggling on the sofa is one of his favorite things to do! He sleeps well through the night on a dog bed next to his foster parents' bed and is ready to get up whenever you are! Wyatt is happy hanging out with his foster Mom while she's working during the day. He'll nap on a dog bed or in a crate in her office, although he does snore sometimes! He is also fond of resting in a sunny spot on the patio.  Wyatt has good house manners but needs help with his leash manners. He tends to pull, barks, and pull towards other dogs when he sees them on walks. He's met dogs and will calm down once he meets them, although he can be a bit pushy in sniffing, which can put other dogs off.  Wyatt needs to learn how to meet them and people calmly. His forever family must work with him to learn to be calm on walks.  Wyatt has not been tested with cats. Unfortunately, we will not be placing Wyatt in a home with cats. We believe Wyatt would like another canine companion in his new house, or he would be great as an only dog if his new family is home a lot and will provide Wyatt with exercise and attention.    Wyatt was recently neutered, is current on his vaccines, and is microchipped.  If you are interested in Wyatt and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and put "WYATT" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.
