Meet Boomer! He is a three-year-old male chocolate Labrador Retriever with beautiful eyes that will melt your heart! Boomer was surrendered to WCLRR when his family had to move and couldn't take him with them. Boomer likes everyone, and his foster describes him as an "amazing" dog! Boomer lives with chickens, tortoises, and five other Labrador Retrievers, and they all get along just fine! Boomer always wants a toy in his mouth, and he loves chasing balls or a good tug of war session. However, although Boomer loves to play, he settles right down when it's time to relax. Boomer loves to walk and is generally good on the leash, although he does pull on the leash a bit. Some training might help reduce the pulling.  Boomer knows sit, stay, and shake. He is house trained and hasn't had an accident at his foster home. He is not a fan of crates, though, preferring to sleep on a dog bed in his foster's bedroom. He sleeps quietly through the night, waiting for his people to get up in the morning.  Boomer's ideal home would be with anyone that will give him the love and attention he deserves. He would be well-suited for a single person, a couple, or a family. He would be fine in a home with other dogs but would also be ok as an only pup. As long as Boomer is with someone that will take him for walks or hikes, play with him, and include him in their activities, Boomer will be happy! Boomer is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, and is microchipped. If you are interested in Boomer and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "BOOMER" 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

Meet Dulce! She is a one-year-old black Labrador Retriever mix with a glossy coat and beautiful puppy eyes. Dulce came to WCLRR after she surrendered to the shelter after her family found that Dulce's energy level was not a good fit with their young child, and Dulce nipped at the child.   Dulce is a medium-to-high energy dog, the perfect combination of easy-going and spunky! She greets everyone she meets with enthusiasm, assumes everyone is ready to play and gives her belly rubs. She is happy to hang out on the couch and watch TV while chewing a bone or going on a nice neighborhood walk. Dulce also enjoys playing fetch. She has a lot of toys at her foster home, and she enjoys parading around the yard or house with them in her mouth. Dulce's foster says she walks like a dream on her harness/leash! Dulce enjoys regular walks during the week and is also very happy to go on a run or hike.  Dulce knows a lot of commands, including Sit, Down, Stay, Place, Go to Bed, and many more. Dulce has been an excellent student learning from our trainer and has excelled in many areas.   Dulce has also been introduced to speech buttons! Dulce's new owner will need to work with our trainer first to learn her unique talents.   Dulce is terrific with many different personalities of dogs. She even calibrates the activity level and temperament of the other dog and plays with them accordingly. Dulce calmly notices other dogs but doesn't pull to get to them on a walk. She's great with other dogs and animals in general. She previously lived in a home with a cat, and she had peaceful interactions with that cat.  Dulce is fully house trained and crate trained. She sleeps quietly through the night in a crate in her foster's bedroom and waits patiently for her people to take her out and start their day. Dulce has mild to moderate separation anxiety and is currently on a natural supplement that keeps it in check.  Dulce's ideal home would be an active single or couple with a secure yard looking for a buddy to take on walks or hikes or hang out and relax. Dulce gets along well with children, but she is young and does best with older children. Therefore, we will not place Dulce with small children. Instead, she would do well as an only dog or as a little sister to an adult dog that can "show her the ropes."  Dulce is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.    If you are interested in Dulce and have already been approved to adopt, please email ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "DULCE" in the subject line, explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Gunner! He is a handsome, energetic five-year-old black Labrador Retriever mix. Gunner's family surrendered him to WCLRR when his busy family found that they couldn't give Gunner the time and attention that he deserved. Gunner is on the small side for a male Labrador Retriever. Gunner loves to play and run around, and his favorite thing is playing fetch. His foster needs to put the balls out of his reach so that he will take a break and relax. Gunner gets along with other dogs once they've been introduced calmly. His foster has a cat and a small dog, and they get along well. Gunner is house trained and crate trained. He enjoys being in his crate and will often lay in it during the day to relax. Gunner sleeps quietly through the night in a crate in his foster's bedroom. Gunner knows a few commands, including sit, shake, and lay down. He could use some leash training. His foster reports that he has been known to counter surf and sometimes will guard his food when other animals are around. His new family should keep counters clear of food and dangerous items such as medicine. Gunner was left outside by himself during the day in his previous home and would bark to get attention. At his foster home, Gunner can be inside with his people and the other pets, and the foster reports that there have been no issues with barking. Gunner's ideal home would be with an active individual, couple, or family where someone is home most of the time. He has a lot of energy, and with a bit of leash, training Gunner would be a great partner for someone who hikes or is a runner. Gunner is ok with children, but he does jump, so that older children would be recommended. Gunner is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, and is microchipped. If you are interested in Gunner and have already been approved to adopt, please email ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "GUNNER" in the subject line, explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Iris! Iris is an 9/10 year-old female chocolate Labrador Retriever with a beautiful coat and sweet eyes. WCLRR rescued Iris from a high kill shelter. She had some fatty lipomas, which have been removed, and she has some arthritis. Iris has had a complete medical exam and senior lab work with excellent results and an x-ray of her foot to confirm the arthritis diagnosis. She takes medicine for arthritis and gets joint supplements. Iris is a low-medium-energy dog. She loves walks and behaves well on the leash without pulling or weaving. Iris is a great swimmer and may have learned to swim in the ocean or a lake, as she is learning to use steps to get out of the pool at her foster's home. Iris adores playing fetch! She will happily drop the ball in her person's lap to let them know she is ready to play. Iris can sometimes be obsessed with chasing her ball but understands when told that it's not time to play. She also enjoys playing with stuffed animals. Iris gets along well with people and dogs. She is a Velcro dog that always wants to be with her people. Iris lives with three other dogs, including a small terrier. She was a little apprehensive of her foster siblings at first but now happily spends time with them and enjoys being part of their pack.   Iris knows many commands, including coming, sitting, waiting, getting your ball, and lying down. She is housetrained and hasn't had any accidents in her foster home. She sleeps quietly through the night on a dog bed in her foster's bedroom and waits for her foster mom to say "let's go" to start their day.  Iris's ideal home would be with an individual, couple, or family where someone is home most of the time. She would enjoy a pool and be happy with another dog as a companion. However, she can be a bit sensitive when there is a lot of activity and would be most comfortable in a relatively calm home, perhaps with older children. Iris is on medication and supplements to manage her arthritis. Her new family should continue this regimen to help Iris remain comfortable and active. Iris is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.   If you are interested in Iris and have already been approved to adopt, please email ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "IRIS" in the subject line, explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Lulu! She is a petite four-year-old black Labrador retriever. Lulu surrendered to WCLRR when her family found that her anxiety with strangers in the home was not a good fit for their busy lifestyle. Lulu's left rear paw is slightly deformed, but it doesn't impair her mobility. She can run and walk on three legs and uses that back leg when needed. However, she can sometimes have balance issues and will knock into walls or people.  Lulu is a medium-to-high energy dog. She's happy with a few short walks a day and some fetch in the backyard and enjoys 5–7-mile walks or hiking. Lulu enjoys playing fetch with rope toys and rubber Kong toys that she can toss around and bounce and chase to entertain herself. She likes "stuffy" toys, but she needs to be supervised because she chews off bits of the toy and goes for the stuffing. Lulu does like Nylabones. She also loves riding in the car and can last many hours before needing a potty or walk break.  Lulu enjoys playing with other dogs that aren't too aggressive in their play. She does well with one-on-one playdates and at dog parks. During walks, she will greet other dogs nicely.  Lulu is house-trained and has learned several commands, including sit, stay, down, come, and "drop" when playing fetch. Her foster reports that it was easy to teach her which areas in the home were OK and which were off-limits. For example, she likes to unroll the toilet paper roll when left alone, so bathroom doors should be left closed. Lulu walks well on a leash. She doesn't pull and quickly follows the walker's pace and direction. She isn't distracted by neighborhood sights and sounds. When walking on a path with other dogs, she is easy to walk. She does pull a bit on the leash when she sees a cat, but she doesn't notice or chase squirrels or birds.  Lulu sleeps in a crate in a separate room. She is content to stay quietly in her crate until her foster gets up. After eating breakfast, she gets a burst of energy and will bring toys from her box until she engages you in play. Lulu does have some resource guarding issues when it comes to people. She loves to be near her "person" and can be protective of them and their surroundings. However, lulu can also become anxious when strangers come into the home. Her foster is working with Lulu to help her be more tolerant of people and remain calm in stressful situations. Lulu is generally a happy and playful dog that loves going on walks and playing fetch and keep away. But she's also content to chew on a bone to occupy herself. Lulu's ideal home would be with a single person or couple with a quiet lifestyle and limited visitors to the house. She would be an excellent walking or hiking companion and behaves very well with people and dogs she meets outside the home. She is also quite happy to hang out and watch television with her people. Lulu is fine being left alone in the house for long periods and would be a good fit for someone who works outside the home during the day. Since Lulu is a velcro girl, there is little risk of her jumping a low fence or trying to get out of a yard. Lulu would be fine with another dog if the dog is calm and is not aggressive or overly physical during play. Lulu is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.   If you are interested in Lulu and have already been approved to adopt, please email ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "Lulu" in the subject line, explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Nala! Nala is a petite 9-year-old female yellow Labrador Retriever mix with a gorgeous soft coat. WCLRR rescued Nala from a high-kill shelter. She has had a complete medical exam and senior dog lab work with excellent results. She was quiet and scared when she first came to WCLRR but is coming out of her shell as she gets lots of love and attention from her foster family. Nala is a low-to-medium energy dog. Her experience in the shelter was scary, and it took her a few days before she would relax enough to let her foster pet her. Now she loves neck and belly rubs and likes to be rubbed under her ears and on her cheeks. If strokes end before she is ready, she will gently put her paw out to ask for more love! She hasn't expressed any interest in chasing balls or playing with toys. Instead, she enjoys lying on the couch for her naps. Nala likes people and is good with them, but it takes her time to warm up to new people. When her foster family had visitors, Nala would keep her distance and slowly come closer as she felt comfortable. Her new family will want to manage her introduction to new people to make sure that she feels comfortable. She becomes anxious if she is cornered or is surprised by someone.  Nala is okay with other dogs and shows no resource guarding. She lives with a 12-year-old lab and has been introduced to a 12-year-old pug with no issues. She also spent time with a 2-year-old labradoodle full of energy and avoided interaction. However, being the pug found her way to Nala's bowl during mealtime while Nala was eating. Nala walked away while the pug started eating her dinner.   Nala knows to sit and comes when her name is called. She walks well on a leash, sniffing and walking casually. Initially, she was apprehensive about the leash. However, now she looks forward to walks and will stand next to her foster to put the leash on. She ignores other dogs that she sees during her walks. She also enjoys wandering around the yard and napping in the sun or a cool shady spot.  Nala has used the doggy door at her foster home with no problem and hasn't had any accidents in the house. She does not counter surf, does not chew things, and is not a barker. Nala is not crate trained. She sleeps in her foster mom's room, usually on the carpet, although a dog bed is available. Nala sleeps quietly through the night, getting up when her foster does. Nala does eat quickly, and her foster uses a slow-feeder when feeding Nala. Nala's ideal home would be one with a secure yard that she can hang out in and people that will be patient with her and give her lots of love and attention. She would be okay with another dog, but an older dog with a similar temperament and energy level would be best. A family with young children might be stressful for her, but older children that will not startle her would be fine. Nala is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.   If you are interested in Nala and have already been approved to adopt, please email ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "NALA" in the subject line, explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Storm! He is a sweet 10-11-year-old black Labrador Retriever who was surrendered to WCLRR when his owner passed away. Storm has an adorable face, bright eyes, and a beautiful black coat. When he came to WCLRR, he had some lipomas and benign fatty tumors that older labs often have. WCLRR had the lumps removed. Storm healed quickly and is ready for his new home! Storm's foster describes him as a "dream, and a joy to have in our home." He is unconditional love, easy-going, super affectionate, and loves to be talked to and petted. His tail is always wagging to show how happy he is! Storm is a low-to-medium-energy dog. He is a bit of a couch potato and doesn't have much interest in toys, but he does love a good walk! His foster takes him on one-mile walks in the morning and evening, and Storm does excellent! He walks nicely on the leash, with no pulling, and keeps up a good pace.   Storm gets along well with people, dogs, and other creatures. He was happy to let a 3-year-old neighbor girl pet him. He met the foster's senior parents and was very gentle around them. He is calm when greeting visitors to the home. Storm lives with another 11-year-old lab, and they get along well, although Storm is not very interested in engaging in play. When he meets other dogs, he sniffs and then moves on. His foster has chickens running free in the yard, and Storm ignores them other than maybe giving the cage a sniff.    Storm knows a few commands, including sit and shake. He is fully housetrained and has had no accidents in his foster home. He learns to go to the door when he needs to go outside. Storm sleeps either on a blanket or one of several dog beds around the house. He is so quiet and calm that his foster didn't see a need for him to be in a crate. He sleeps quietly through the night, usually sleeping through the family's coffee and breakfast. He wakes up when he's ready, greeting his family with a wagging tail, ready for a bathroom break and breakfast! After breakfast, he will often settle back on one of the beds for a morning nap. Storm's ideal home would be a quiet place with a fenced yard and some grass to enjoy. He is a senior, so a home with area rugs or other floorings to keep him from slipping would be good. He is fine being left alone for a few hours, usually napping while his people are out. He would do well as an only dog or living with another dog with a similar calm temperament. He seems to be especially partial to men. He likes to hang out in the garage while his foster dad is working, although he is friendly and loving to everyone he meets.   Storm is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, complete senior bloodwork and labs,  and is microchipped. If you are interested in Storm and have already been approved to adopt, please email ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "STORM" in the subject line, explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.
