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.  


7 year old spayed black female, 80 lbs

Abby is a beautiful, super sweet girl, who is both calm and energetic.  She lived with another dog on a boat with her male owner and her owner very recently passed away.  Abby’s dog walker contacted MBLRR and we took her in right away.  She is a brindle lab (both black and brown colors showing).  There is a brindle gene that labs can carry and if both parents carry that gene, pups can be born with the brindle color.  It’s really pretty.  Her coat is shiny and soft and her eyes speak to you.  Abby is very well behaved and completely house trained.  She does like to snuggle on the couch and when her fosters get up from their bed, she loves to jump up and snuggle where they were lying.  She knows sit, stay and down and comes when called.  She walks pretty well on the leash too.  She loves her walks and loves being outside.  She’s got good energy and is a pretty athletic dog.  She’d love a family who would take long walks with her and would love to go hiking.  Abby is excellent with other dogs but is not really a player.   She’d be fine with another dog or as an only dog…..but since she’s used to living with another dog, if she is an only dog, her person needs to be with her most of the time.  She rides well in the car and jumps right in.  We suspect she’ll like the water, but haven’t tested that out.  Abby really misses her person and has attached herself to the male foster in the family.  She cries a little when he’s not with her and we know that will stop, but we want her to have a male adult in her new family.  Abby just started playing with a ball and we suspect she might retrieve in time.  She’s starting to play with toys too, and her confidence and happiness index is getting better every day.   She’s very affectionate and loves to be loved.  She especially likes tummy rubs.  We’re sure she would be fine with kids, but we think kids age 7 or older would be best for her.  Abby is curious about her surroundings and will love going everywhere with her new family. She’s  easy going and settled in the house.  Pretty much the perfect dog.As always, we want Abby to go to a home where someone is around most of the time….and she needs a man in her life.  Hoping the right family comes along for her soon.

Abby is going to her new home on Tuesday.  Thanks to all who have called on her!


18 mo old neutered chocolate male, 86 lbs

Kylo is a sweet, good natured boy who loves to retrieve.  He’s a handsome, AKC registered boy who was surrendered to MBLRR by a family who loved him.  However, they adopted him along with his brother when they were puppies and the two boys were just too much for them.  So they kept one pup and gave Kylo to us.  Kylo has a beautiful coat,  huge expressive brown eyes, and big feet.  He’s still very much a puppy despite his size but in a good way.  Kylo is house trained and has good house manners.  He sleeps on a dog bed in the foster’s bedroom at night and sleeps through the night.  Kylo comes when called and knows sit, down and stay.  His favorite command is “fetch.”  He  can retrieve for hours if your arm will hold out.  He brings the ball back and drops it and will then sit and wait for you to throw it again.  Once ball play is done, you need to put the ball away and out of sight. Once the ball is gone, he’s very calm and good in the house.  He will play with toys and loves to be next to his person.  He’s happy to hang out while you eat, work or watch TV.  Kylo barks sometimes in excitement but isn’t a persistent barker.  He doesn’t do well in a kennel setting if you have to go on vacation…..he will need a dog sitter….or better yet, get to go on vacation with you.  Kylo is good in the car and doesn’t need to be tethered.  He LOVES to swim.   He adores the beach and can be off leash if you’re throwing a ball for him.  He will come back every time.   He’s a very affectionate boy and enjoys tummy rubs.  He will try to give you kisses if you go to hug him.  Kylo only occasionally jumps up and only when he’s super excited.  And when he does he jumps more in front of you than on you.  But because he’s big and can be bouncy, we think any kids should be age 7 or older.  He’s good with kids and would enjoy having kids to play with.  He’s just a big kid himself.  Kylo is OK on the leash but is all over the place.  That’s the one thing he needs a little work on.  He is great with other dogs and likes to play.  He met lots of dogs on the beach today and was great with all of them.   He would probably be best as an only dog tho because without another dog in the home, he’s very calm.  No cats, please.  Kylo has a great appetite and inhales his food.  He’s very treat motivated and has a gentle mouth.   As always, we want Kylo to go to a home where someone is round most of the time.  He really loves to be with his people…..and loves everyone he meets.  He’s a wonderful dog and whoever adopts him will be so glad they did.

If you’re interested in adopting Kylo, please call Judy @ (831)261-3409.  Kylo is located in Pacific Grove.
