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.  

Charlie

5 year old neutered male silver lab, 74 lbs

Charlie is a friendly,  exceptionally mellow sweetheart of a boy. Charlie’s owners divorced and there have been some big life changes, so they felt it was best to have MBLRR find Charlie a new home.  Charlie is a silver lab with various shades of silver in his coat.  His coat is soft and his eyes are gentle.  He’s always happy to do whatever you want to do, but equally happy doing nothing.  Charlie is house trained and has good house manners.  He doesn’t beg or counter surf.    He loves to hang out with his people and is extremely lovable and affectionate.  He loves to have his head rubbed and often will put his head between your legs and just stand there so you’ll pet the rest of him. He loves to sleep on his person’s bed at night and curls up into a tiny ball at the foot of the bed, not moving all night long. We’d like him to be able to do this in his new home. He also loves snuggling on the couch.    Charlie walks pretty well on a leash, knows sit, down and stay (sort of), and comes when called.  He likes to retrieve.  Charlie has a habit of grabbing the leash in his mouth when he walks and that needs to be worked on, but that’s easy to fix.   Charlie has lived with a 7 lb yorkie/schauzer mix all of his life and is great with him, but hasn’t been exposed to lots of other dogs.  He was attacked by a German shepherd when he was a puppy and is a bit cautious around other dogs as a result. We tested him with a couple of female labs and he did great…not reactive at all, and pretty much ignored them.  He might be nervous tho, around male dogs, especially if they come up to him too quickly, but he’s easily distracted and walks on by.  We think Charlie would be best as an only dog in his new family, tho if the family has a small dog, he should be fine.  He loved his little buddy in his previous home.   He hasn’t been around cats, so a cat free home would be best.  Charlie is great in the car and loves going for rides.  He also likes the water, tho he hasn’t ever tried to swim in it.  He will alarm bark to let you know someone is coming and may occasionally bark when excited, but he’s not a barker.  If he barks and you tell him to stop, he does immediately.  Charlie has lived with kids and really likes them.  He’s a very gentle dog and he will be fine with kids age 5 and older.  He’s fine left alone in the house for a couple of hours.  He just waits patiently for you to return.  Charlie is a very self-assured boy and quickly acclimates to new surroundings.  He’ll fit right into his new family in no time.  As always, we want Charlie to go to a home where someone is around most of the time, even after Covid is over.   Charlie is a real sweetheart  and it’s very easy to love him.  His fosters say he’s” a perfect dog!”
