LABRADOR RETRIEVER RESCUE

Available Labs

Monterey Bay Labrador Retriever Rescue welcomes you to view our LABS AVAILABLE for adoption. We take in labs ranging in age from puppies to seniors (though most of our dogs are in the 1-5 age range) and try to provide you with as much information as we can about each dog. Each has been carefully evaluated and most all have spent time in loving foster homes before being offered for adoption. We typically bring in new dogs every week, so it’s important to check the website frequently if you’re looking to adopt. An explanation of our adoption procedure is located on the How To Adopt section. And we invite you to check out our Success Stories for wonderful notes and photos from our happy adopters.  

Tyson

10 week old blind chocolate lab puppy, 15 lbs

Little Tyson is a darling, super sweet little boy who is blind (caused by a congenital condition where the retina detaches, called retinal dysplasia, for which there is no surgery or fix).  Tyson really doesn’t know what it’s like to be sighted, so blindness isn’t a big deal for him and he gets around beautifully.  He’s completely adorable with his soft chocolate coat and amazing puppy breath.  He loves to be held,  loves to snuggle and he gives lots of kisses.  He adores other dogs.  He is learning so much from the foster’s two dogs, following them around the yard and snuggling with them.  We think it is very important for him to have another dog in his new family, so he can continue to model their behavior and have a buddy. Tyson adores his toys and loves the squeakers.  He especially loves crackling empty water bottles.  He is a typical lab and loves to eat too!!  Tyson is a smart puppy and cocks his head when you talk to him.  Even tho he can’t see you, he listens to every word.  He is learning to use a crate, tho most of the time he’s in a puppy play pen when he needs to have nap time or for sleeping during the night.  Unlike most puppies, Tyson doesn’t use his sharp puppy teeth on you…he’s very gentle. But he does like chew toys. He travels very well in the car and sleeps for most of the ride.  He is 80% housebroken too.  He is afraid of the water right now and isn’t happy about baths.  He will probably never be a swimmer, but he will definitely learn that water is OK with continued gentle exposure to it.  As always, and especially in Tyson’s case, we want someone to be home with him during the day or be able to take him to work.  He needs his people.  Blind dogs are really amazing.  They completely learn where everything is in your home and maneuver around as well as a sighted dog.  You just can’t rearrange the furniture a lot.  His sense of smell will more than compensate for his eye sight.  Blind dogs can retrieve and do normal dog activities.  And Tyson is ready to take it on.  He’s a mellow and easy going puppy.  He just needs a special family to love him!  And loving him is so easy to do.

For more information on Tyson, please call Judy @ (831) 261-3409.  Tyson is located in Gilroy.
