MONTEREY BAY

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.  

Rusty

2 year old neutered yellow/fox red lab, 75 lbs

Rusty is a gentle, sweet, playful boy who had a rough start.  We rescued him and another lab (not yet posted) from the Modesto shelter.  He was found as a stray and was very thin and covered in ticks.  He also had a condition where the eyelids turn inward, causing the fur to rub on the eye…a painful condition which leads to eye infections.  MBLRR pulled him out of the shelter and he’s now neutered, has had his eye condition fixed, and he’s gained weight.  In fact, he’s in great shape.  He’s a good looking boy with his soft eyes, beautiful reddish coat and adorable face.  Rusty is housebroken (goes to the door) and has good house manners.  He doesn’t really know any commands, tho we are working on teaching him “sit.”  He pulls on a leash but not badly.   He’s great with other dogs and loves to play with the foster’s three dogs.  He is very interested in the foster’s cat, but doesn’t appear to have any prey drive.  If a cat runs, he might chase it, but he wouldn’t hurt anything.  Rusty is a very gentle boy, who is quite calm for a 2 year old.  He does jump up (mostly to get attention), but we think he’d be fine with kids age 7 and older.  Rusty likes playing with toys but is not interested in retrieving a ball (at least not at this point).  He has a very gentle mouth.  He’s not a barker either.  He rides really well in the car, just lying down and enjoying the ride, but he doesn’t know how to get into a car….we’re teaching him.  He will learn quickly.  He’s a total sweetheart and loves to be loved and petted.  He will crawl into your lap and just soak up the attention.  He’d love to be allowed on the couch so he could do just that in his new home.  He’s in good shape and would enjoy an active family who could take him lots of places.  Since he was just neutered, we can’t take him to the beach, but he’d probably love it there.  We’re quite certain he’s never seen a beach.  Rusty just wants to be with his people.  He would love to have another dog in his family too.  We’re not sure if the other dog he was found with lived with him, but he seems to really love to have doggie companionship.  As always, we insist that someone be home with him during the day, or have a dog friendly workplace where he could hang out. Rusty is a wonderful dog.  He just needs someone to teach him a few commands and take him to lots of places.
