Adopt Me: Rocky, a 5 year old Male Black Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a Bio from His foster family……..


Please read carefully!
"Rocky is looking for a special family to call home. Rocky has been diagnosed with Canine Epilepsy, and will need medication to control/minimize future seizures. Epilepsy isn't curable, it's simply something to manage in a dog's lifetime. Rocky is a sweet, energetic Lab that loves being with people. He is very loving and affectionate, but needs work on being left alone. He is friendly with children, other dogs and learning to ignore cats.
Loves to be active, walks, playing fetch, going for rides. Rocky currently doesn't like being crated, but we're continuing to work on making a crate his safe space. Rocky would do great with a family with older children, and one that understands he's needs managing his epilepsy."

Adopted: Nala, a 2 year old Female Yellow Labrador

Adopted: Nala, a 2 year old Female Yellow Labrador, who is looking for her forever home.

Here is a Bio from her foster family……..


"Nala - Simba's travelling companion, also came from Beijing, China. She too was rescued by Goldens without Borders, an organization dedicated to saving dogs from the meat trade industry.

Nala is adapting well to her recent whirlwind - a 6,000+ mile Pacific crossing, rescuers befriending her, medical/dental procedures, new home, playmates, people, sounds, smells, language - all of it!

She's sweet, lovey and curious. She entertains herself with a tennis ball when no fetch partner is around. She's a dainty eater, but goes with gusto at a sacrificial sock or stuffed toy. Happy to hang out and relax with the pack, she will let you know when she's bored and needs a little entertainment. She's mostly good being crated, uses the dog door comfortably, and rides very well in the car. Nala gets along with my two Labs and wants to try out the pool but it's off-limits until her spay stitches are removed. She only barks when appropriate. Nala responds to a quiet NO or AH, and learns quickly.

It doesn't appear that she's had any training, which fits with the path of her life until now. She is smart and very much wants to please, and we're working on SIT and STAY. I've had her for 4 days and already see progress. She's not quite house-trained either, but the repetition of sending her through the dog door every 2-3 hours and encouraging her to take care of business, is starting to take hold.

She's strong, young and energetic, so families with smaller children should be aware. I haven't seen her around children, or cats for that matter, but based on her personality, have no reason to believe there would be an issue. That said, the safety of both the children and the dog are of primary importance.

Nala's like a sponge who really wants to learn. An active family committed to giving her the guidance, boundaries, love and exercise she needs will be rewarded with an excellent companion, a most loyal friend and a great cuddler too! "

Pending Adoption: Simba, a 2 year old Black Male Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a Bio from his foster family……..


"Simba is a very unique addition to Las Vegas Labrador Rescue, having travelled all the way from Beijing, China to Las Vegas. Simba was recused by Goldens without Borders, an organization dedicated to saving dogs from the meat trade industry, and transported to the US, and ultimately, to Las vegas Labrador Rescue.
For a dog that has travelled farther than most, he is doing amazing in our home. Simba is energetic, playful, and really enjoys running around. He has discovered the pool, and was an instant fan of routine swims! He's does very well on leash, but will need more work, and is getting better every day with crating. He appears to be house-trained, does great with other dogs, and wants to play. Simba is very affectionate, loves getting rubbed and does the lean for good snuggles. Simba will need some work learning not to jump on people and he's still has a lot of puppy mouthy in him, so families with smaller children should be aware. As we do not have cats or small children, we are unsure how he would do around them, but we have no reason to think it would be an issue. Given that for most of his life his commands were given in a different language, Simba will need a little extra time learning new versions of sit, stay, etc. He's very smart, curious, a little bit of a foodie and an absolute sweet boy. He will make a great companion for an active family willing to do a little work to get him acclimated to a new home."


Simba currently has the maximum allowed meet requests. Please watch for updates.

Adopt Me: Finn, a 7 year old Black Male Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a Bio from his foster family……..


"Finn is a very energetic, active lab with a lot of love to give. He has an incredibly friendly and goofy temperament, and he gets along great with other animals and people. He would make a great companion for anyone who is looking for a friendly, lively addition to their family. Finn is a larger dog, he knows sit and does very well on a leash and is am absolute joy to walk. He will easily go into his crate and stay inside, but becomes anxious when left alone in the crate. For this reason he will do best with a family that is willing to be patient with him through the initial crating process. Finn's muzzle is a little swollen in his pictures, as he is healing from some dental work."

Pending Adoption: Maya, a 3 year old Black Female Labrador, has found her forever home.

Here is a Bio from her foster family……..


"Maya is a 3 year old black lab who needs a family with the patience to let her warm up to you at her own pace. She is housebroken, crate trained and is comfortable on a leash. She sleeps through the night, rides well in car, but frightens easily with new sounds. At first Maya prefers to stay in her crate where she feels safe, but as she feels at ease with you, it is easy to tell that she wants to be loved and petted. Maya would do better in a home with another dog, as she lights up when she's around other pets. Maya will need a family that can give her time and patience to become comfortable in a new surrounding. Once she trusts her human, Maya is a lovable, affectionate and energetic. She simply takes longer than most to feel safe & secure.
Please consider the acclamation time Maya needs before requesting to meet her. "

  • Willow

Adopted: Willow, a 4 month old Black Female Labrador, has found her forever home.

Here is a Bio from her foster family……..


"Willow is a hilariously wonderful young Lab! She is quite a character, feisty, strong willed, and very smart. Willow loves to play fetch already, romp and play, and has learned sit. She is also sweet, affectionate, and will also snuggle with humans. Willow is learning to adjust to a kennel, and while not thrilled to go, she quickly settles down. She is doing great with potty training, provided you stay on a schedule. As Willow is still a puppy, she's incredibly mouthy, curious and likes to play. She will need a strong leader to guide her through the puppy stages of life, helping her become the dog she is meant to be. Families with small children should take extra caution before requesting a meet, as Willow is still learning not to jump on people and walk on leash, and did we mention she's quite mouthy? Willow is good with other dogs and wants to play; our dogs, however, are not interested. Willow will need a family experienced with young, energetic Labs and committed to providing her with structure, boundaries and training. Willow will make a great companion, as she loves people and really is a blank canvas for training.
Willow requires a follow up trip to our vet for another round of booster vaccinations and her stitches removed, and that should be considered by any prospective family. It is a condition of her adoption."

Adopted: Sydney, a 1.5 year old Black Female Labrador

  • Sydney-3

  • Sydney

Adopted: Sydney, a 1.5 year old Black Female Labrador, who is looking for forever home.

Here is a Bio from foster family……..


"At about a year and a half, Sydney is full grown and on the slightly smaller side for a Lab. With a few drops of white snow on her back paws and a blaze under her chest, her bushy curled-edge tail, and her strong herding instinct, she could have a bit of Border Collie in her background.

Sydney is affectionate, confident, easy-going and smart.

She's happy to meet new people, gets along with my Labs, and is equally happy playing in the garden or hanging out watching Nature shows on TV. (Apparently not a Deadwood fan, though, as she just curled up next to me and went to sleep with her head on my lap.) Sydney keeps herself occupied with toys, but is not Missy Destructo. She loves tennis balls, but hasn't quite gotten the fetch idea of bringing the ball back. She has shown no interest in shoes or other stuff on the floor. Jumped up to the kitchen counter once or twice, but responds properly to the command 'no'.

Sydney walks amazingly well on a leash, heeling perfectly on my right side, and tries to herd me if I put her on the left. She doesn't bolt when she sees other animals. Even on a long leash, she never goes to the end of it, which most young Labs do until they're trained. She rides quietly in the back seat of a car. And she knows to use the doggie door.

Sydney shows the calmness and disposition of an adult dog (not a lot of raging puppy energy to work off, no lack of attention and focus - so not alot of work for her new family) . But her best new family will give her the extra intellectual stimulation, challenges and tasks to master, as these will help her reach her amazing potential as a working member of her new pack! "

Adopted: Barney, a 2.5 year old Black Male Labrador, has found his forever home.

Here is a Bio from foster family……..


"Barney is simply an amazing boy! He's very friendly, affectionate, smart and loving. He's doing great with our existing dogs, rides well in the car, and is crate trained with little whining. Barney is happy chasing a ball, energetic and playful, and is equally happy to curl up with you. He sleeps through the night, appears to be house-trained, but definitely needs work with walking on leash. Barney is very eager to please, quick to learn, and is a little sneaky about getting on the bed with you to cuddle. He has a great curiosity and independence, but also wants to be with people. In typical Labrador fashion, Barney is quite the foodie, and willing to share your ice cubes, watermelon, hamburgers, and pretty much anything else you're willing to give him. We do not have cats, but he is quite interested in our backyard lizards. There are no children in the house, but Barney is mature enough that with proper guidance and training for both kids and Barney, he will be great. He's wonderful and adorable, and will make a fantastic companion for the right active family. Barney is a near perfect buddy dog and will make many hearts melt. "

We love receiving updates on our former rescues. This is an amazing Happy Tail for Sierra (formerly Remme) !

"We adopted this beautiful girl almost two years ago and made her part of our family. She is incredibly sweet, playful and great with the kids. I have never seen a dog more obsessed with her ball and is always ready to play fetch. She has tons of energy and has gone with us to the beach in L.A., visiting family in Phoenix, hiking in Red Rock and playing in the snow in Utah. If you're busy and can't play ball with her (or her second favorite thing: rub her belly) she will just curl up next to you. Total velcro dog, follows you everywhere around the house and we love it. She's doing great and we look forward to many more years with her.

"Luke is a very energetic young black lab who is full of love. He gets along well with every person and dogs he meets. He's curious about the world around him and wants to see everything and meet everyone.

Luke is very playful, he'll go after toys and loves to explore. He'll need an outlet for his energy whether that is other dogs, people, or both. He will make a great addition to a family that is ready for the amount of love and energy that he brings (which is a lot!)."

"Sierra is beautiful, energetic and petite. She knows some basic commands like sit and is working on learning more. She wants to please and is taking to structure and learning new things quickly. She shows no aggression with food, toys or other dogs. She loves to play with toys especially stuffies and really likes to explore the yard. Sierra is very well behaved and is working on not jumping up on people when she is overly excited. But she can also be very calm and quiet. She is crate trained and quiet all night. She is currently working on walking on a leash and has made great improvement. Overall, Sierra is a very loving, affectionate girl who is happy to return all the love and attention you give her. She would be a great addition to an active family willing to exercise her daily."

He likes the water and he likes chasing a ball. He takes to his crate very well and has no issues with crate training. Fenway would do great in a home that can reinforce boundaries and encourage good behavior to make him the best dog he can be."

  • Dudley 2019-10

Adopted: Dudley, an 8 year old Black Male Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a Bio from his foster family……..


"Dudley is a handsome and distinguished big happy lab. He has already shown what a great addition he will make to a household. He does great with large and small dogs and shows no aggression towards the cats in his current foster home. He’s had no accidents in his kennel or inside the house which leads us to believe he is house trained. He happily goes into his kennel and hasn’t displayed any barking or crying while inside the kennel. He is quick to bond and eager to please while staying close by his family members throughout the day. As a more mature lab, he is perfectly happy to lay down and watch a movie but gets great pleasure from going on walks or playing in the yard.
He is leisurely on a leash and hasn’t shown the habit to pull and also does great in the car. He will need some reinforcement and training to correct his habit and curiosity of checking the counter or tables for leftover food. Dudley will make a great companion."

  • Ryder-16
  • Ryder-17

Adopted: Ryder, a 4 year old Black Male Labrador, has found his forever home has the maximum number of approved families asking to meet him. We will not accept more requests until those meetings have taken place.

Here is a Bio from his foster family……..


"Ryder is a beautiful, big Black Labrador retriever. He has a head like a bear, and a heart as big as the planet. He's friendly and curious, and gets along with my family and my two Labs. He's content to play with toys or explore the back yard on his own, but then wants to come back and flop down on the floor next to my desk and the other dogs. Kind and affectionate, he's happy to hang out in his crate with the door open, and gladly sleeps there with the door closed at night while he earns full roaming privileges.

Ryder takes treats gently from my hand - which is great for such a big dog. He's learned to use the doggie door, but hasn't quite gotten the idea that he should use it as a way get outside to take care of his business. But we are working on that and he's already showing progress. He knows sit, down and no. We're working on reinforcement and learning new commands too. He's very eager to learn and please.

Ryder's size, relatively young age (3 y/o) and general bounciness means that potential adopters with small children may want to think about whether a big rambunctious young Lab is right for them at the moment.

As with all young dogs, Ryder will need love, patience, training and consistent reinforcement. He's already gotten a great start on the road to being an amazing and wonderful addition to the right family's pack. "

  • Janie-2
  • Janie-3
  • Janie-12
  • Janie-18
  • Janie-26
  • Janie-31

Adopted: Janie, a 2 year old Female Yellow Labrador, has found her forever home.

Here is a Bio from her foster family……..


"Janie is a sweet young girl with all the curiosity and energy of a her age. She's smart and adapted quickly to my other two Labs and the pack structure. She's eager to please but struggles occasionally with focus - as you would expect from a year-old puppy. But she makes progress daily. She loves and wants to be part of the pack, and she is extremely loyal, following me around whenever I get up from my desk. No matter what the hour or where I am going, she will come with me to make sure I am safe. She likes to curl up next to me and the rest of he pack to watch TV in the evenings. She loves playing with tennis balls and hard chew toys.

Janie knows some commands and is trained to use the doggie door. She's not thrilled with going in the crate, but will go in with a treat and a little encouragement (in the form of a bit of herding). She isnt barky, and she isnt mouthy - a pleasant surprise for a Lab! She takes treats delicately from my hand, and eats nicely. She walks fairly well on the leash. Although her initial excitement at going out makes her try to pull a little, after a few minutes she settles down and walks right beside me.

Janie is a happy, sweet, smart, curious pup. With guidance, love, training and a bit of patience, she will be a glorious addition to the family that adopts her. Families with small children may want to consider whether a rambunctious pup is right for them, and whether they're prepared to make the time needed to help Janie grow into the great girl she's already starting to become!"

Adopted: Roxy, a 4 month old Black Female Labrador, has found her forever home.

Here is a Bio from her foster family……..


PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND THOROUGHLY BEFORE REQUESTING TO MEET CONNER, MISSY OR ROXY.
Roxy has been diagnosed with Canine Oral Papillomas.. It's common in puppies, whose immune systems aren't fully developed, and spread through saliva. Puppies like to lick!
While Roxy will naturally recover from the virus, it will take up to 8 weeks for her immune system to be completely free of it. There are no symptoms, and no medication to give, puppies simply grow out of it.
While not contagious to people, the virus is contagious to other dogs. We strongly suggest, if your home already has a dog(s), do not request to meet Roxy. She has to be kept from other dogs until the virus has run it's course, and as we don't know when she was introduced to it, it should be 8 weeks.
Please make sure you've read up on Canine Oral Papillomas and speak with your vet before submitting a Meet Request for Roxy.

"Roxy is simply a little bundle of love. While she can be timid at first, she wants to snuggle and cuddle with humans. She's happy to lay with you, in between puppy play time, and take naps. Roxy is learning to adjust to a kennel, and while not thrilled to go, she quickly settles down. Roxy is doing great on potty training, quick to learn, and is close to sleeping through the night. As Roxy is still a puppy, she's incredibly mouthy, curious and likes to run and play, and will need a strong leader to teach her through the puppy stages of life. Roxy is with her sister Missy, and loves to play. As we have to have them separated entirely, we cannot say how she is with other dogs at this point. Roxy will need a family experienced with young, energetic Labs and committed to providing her with structure, boundaries and training. Roxy will make a great companion, as she loves people."

  • Loki-6
  • Loki-20
  • Loki-23
  • Loki-27
  • Loki-28

Adopted: Loki, a 5 month old Male Black Labrador, found his forever home.

Here is a Bio from foster family……..


"Loki is a 4 month old, adorable ball of energy! He is super sweet and loves to play with our teenage lab, go on walks, chew on bully sticks and give kisses. One of my favorite things about him is his unique white marking on his chest which looks like a cross and the white tips on his paws – so cute!

Loki doesn’t appear to have had any training in his short little life but is settling nicely into his crate training and is quickly picking up commands like ‘sit’ and ‘no’. He seems very smart and wants to please but will need a patient family to partner with him and teach him good behaviors as he grows. Loki has a very healthy appetite and will most likely grow to be on the taller side. Like most puppies, Loki is mouthy and likes to jump and run around. Loki will need a family experienced with young, energetic Labs and committed to providing him with structure, boundaries and training. Overall, I think Loki will be a happy addition to any home."

Adopted: Jade, a 4 month old Black Female Labrador, has found her forever home.

Here is a Bio from her foster family……..


"Jade is sweet little Lab who loves to play, cuddle and meet new people. She still has some of her baby teeth and you can see the occasional not-quite-fully-coordinated jump for joy when she runs.

She uses the doggie door, is great with my other dogs, eats nicely, and is happy to hang out in her crate - with the gate open, when she wants a nap. Jade know the commands 'come', 'sit' and 'no' (very important for puppies!). She is getting better on the leash but needs more work so that she doesn't pull. Like all puppies, she likes to jump and explore, and doesn't know her own every-increasing strength.

Jade is smart, and is now at the perfect age where she is mentally ready to start learning all the good habits and behavior that will make her the amazing and wonderful dog she wants to be.

Her ideal family must also be ready - to give Jade the guidance she needs, especially in this formative time. With love and leadership, time and training, Jade will blossom into a glorious dog for the right family who are committed to the job of raising her well! "

We have another wonderful Happy Tail for Buddy. We love seeing these updates!

"We've had Buddy almost a year now and I felt an update was due. Buddy has learned to get along with his cat friend Max, found the joy in running through big puddles of water, and torn up an outdoor hassock (that's the little white pellets from the hassock). Best of all we bought a house with an acre of fenced land and Buddy enjoys being able to run from the front to the back. Buddy also enjoys going to the open land and looking for jackrabbits and just running and running.

We were blessed to be able to adopt Buddy, especially since our other lab died a month before, and enjoy each day with him. He is quite the character, always energetic (sometimes mischievous) and he makes us happy every day.

Thank you for giving us Buddy!

Adopted: Piper, a 9 month old Yellow Female Labrador

  • Piper-14
  • Piper-17
  • Piper-22
  • Piper-23

Adopted: Piper, a 9 month old Yellow Female Labrador, found her forever home.

Here is a Bio from her foster family……..


"Piper is a wonderful young Lab, full of energy, curiosity and excitement. Piper is currently going through her 'rebellious teenager' stage, being mischievous and is working on her focusing her energy in the right areas. Piper is loving, affectionate, and does well with other dogs. She is very smart, knowing several commands like sit, shake, etc, and is getting better walking on leash and being crated. Like most puppies, Piper is very mouthy, nose driven, likes to jump and run around. Piper will need a family experienced with young, energetic Labs and committed to providing her with structure, boundaries and training. Families with young children should be extra cautious before requesting to meet Piper, as she's a puppy that doesn't understand her own size. With love, security and guidance, she will be an amazing dog for the right family. Piper has such potential to be an incredible companion, she simply needs someone committed to teaching her appropriate behavior with love. "

Adopted: Tank, a 5-6 year old Male Chocolate Labrador

  • Tank-10
  • Tank-12
  • Tank-13

Adopted: Tank, a Male Chocolate Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.

Here is a Bio from his foster family……..


"For the short time that we have had Tank he has already shown what a great addition he will make to a household. He does great with large and small dogs and shows no aggression towards cats. He’s had no accidents in his kennel and has quickly picked up how to use our dog door. With practice, reinforcement and supervision we feel that he can eventually be trusted to roam freely without the kennel. He is quick to bond and eager to please. Tank craves love, affection and often positions himself close to you. He is perfectly happy to lay down and watch a movie while chewing a bone but also likes playing in the yard. He enjoys leisurely walks and hasn’t shown the habit to pull. He knows how to sit, stay and shake and has a great smile."

What a wonderful Holiday Happy Tail we received from Addison's family!

"Hey!
It has been about a year since we adopted Addison, and I thought I would drop you a line to tell you how the year has gone.

Both Scott and I love her dearly, that goes without saying. Teddy continues to love his best friend/sister. They enjoy a vigorous morning play time after breakfast, followed by morning nap. Oddly they take afternoon nap together but morning nap they take separately. Weekends find them on hikes or long walks. Addison gets grumpy mid-week if she doesn’t get her scheduled neighborhood walks. She expresses her displeasure by getting one of her collars and showing us.

Shortly after we welcomed Addison, she completed a walking and obedience class with some mastiff pups in our neighborhood. In the past year, she has had no issue with any dog she has encountered and is quite the social butterfly.

Her weight and health have been good. I was paranoid that she had swallowed too much toy stuffing, but an X-ray showed her perfect and stuffing free. She enjoys her tubby baths. She does not care for swimming. She will hang out on the first step of our pool but feels that is far enough. On a river walk, she showed us she can swim and that she does not like it by avoiding any depth greater than her elbow. Teddy- a natural born swimmer- doesn’t mind this as it is his way to shine. Most frequently laying on a lounge chair and watching her brother swim, Addison is quite a picture.

When we first got her, she jumped over the fence to the neighbor’s and we were on watch to make sure that she did not run/jump a way. As it is such a serious thing, we were constantly evaluating situations and guarding against this fact. About 3 months after we got Addison, I was returning home and she leapt out of the car at the same time her brother did and her lead was not secured. She happily ran to the front door. Not taking that event as common, it took several other occasions to know that she is not only not a runner/jumper but the first one back to the door. Clearly, we still take precautions to protect Ted and Addison but there is an emotional comfort to know that other than the first week, she is not trying to flee us.

Addison has been to Utah several times, celebrated Christmas, Easter, Halloween, & Thanksgiving, given endless kisses to her brother, decided dropping her nylabone is the best way to wake up sleeping parents, made friends, seen rabbits, deer & coyotes and enjoyed many massages. Very much like a girl, her favorite show is the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Each time last winter it would come on, she would jump on to the couch and snuggle with me, so she could still see the television. She does not like the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

We did have her DNA tested and she is more Bloodhound than anything, followed by Lab, Golden Retriever, more hound and Akita. Akita ends the curly tail dispute. The Bloodhound explains some of the noises she makes! To encourage her puppy mind, we continue to do scent training (for the Bloodhound) and fun challenges (for the rest.)

Thank you again for the service you provide.

Adopted: Alaska, a 1 year old Black Female Labrador, has found her forever home.

Here is a Bio from foster family……..


"Alaska is a very energetic puppy with a lot of love to give. She gets along great with kids and other dogs, and will often want to snuggle up with her friends and family. A little shy at first, she quickly warms up to you and will follow you anywhere. Alaska is getting used to her crate still but will sit when you have her attention. She's a sweetheart and will need a patient and loving family to raise her. "
