Jake and DukeAre you looking for your first Labrador Retriever? Maybe you know you’ll be a wonderful owner but you are a little worried because you work and don’t want him to be lonely? We have the perfect dog for you!! His name is Jake and Duke! Jake and Duke are 5 year old brothers and they are a bonded pair. Their current owner tells us they are big boys and that they’re Lab mixes, however it appears that their Labrador genetics prevailed in the mix. Both boys are neutered, housebroken and know how to use a dog door. They spend the majority of their time indoors and are well behaved in the house. They are happy, loving boys but it is unclear whether or not they get along with other dogs or cats since they’ve really only been around one-another. Jake and Duke love women and children but it’s been several years since they’ve interacted with a human male… so they may not know exactly what to make of Mr. Adopter for a little bit. Both boys have very distinct personalities, Duke is the happy-go-lucky, outgoing one and Jake likes to hang back for a minute and let Duke assess the situation before committing.

Jake and Duke were born on 12/9/2009 and adopted as pups. They are very loved dogs and it is with a heavy heart that their owner must find them a new family. Due to unfortunate circumstances, she is moving in with her daughter and Jake and Duke would be dogs #7 and #8. She felt they had so much love to give, that they needed to be dogs #1 and #2. We agree. If you are thinking of adopting one dog but have room for two, we encourage you to meet these two incredibly awesome boys!

Raven

Looking for a smaller lab to become a loving member of your family?  Raven may just be your girl.  Raven was just a 3 month old starving puppy when her current family took her in.  With lots of love and the proper diet (due to her near starvation she still requires a special diet), Raven has thrived.  Raven does well in the house, is crate trained, and loves daily walks.  She’s very energetic and her current owners just can’t provide her with the exercise or training she needs to channel that energy in a positive way.  Due to her energy level, a home with small children or the elderly is not recommended.

If you are interested in meeting Raven click here for information on the adoption process.  There you will find the online application which, when completed, can be emailed to applications@luvinlabs.com. Upon receipt of the application a volunteer will be in touch with you within 7 days.  Should you have additional questions or be interested in fostering Gaston call (505) 362-0331.  Owner Listing

Handsome Gerber is a neutered young male lab who’s in search of a forever home.  Gerber’s a bit timid at first meeting, but once he gets to know you he’s quite the cuddler.  He gets along great with other dogs and even likes cats.  He’s good on a leash and has perfect house manners.  An active owner would be ideal for Gerber as he would do well as a hiking companion…staying right by your side.  Gerber can jump so he needs a home with a higher fence and really wouldn’t do well left outside alone.  If you are interested in meeting Gerber please contact Kristine at krisgruda@hotmail.com.  Courtesy Post

Maddie1

1 year old female Madeline (aka Maddie) is in search of a new home where her human doesn’t have to travel for work all the time. Adorable Maddie is a sweet all-around dog who would be a great addition to just about any home. Maddie’s owner has this to say about her: “She is very friendly and loves other dogs. Her best friend is a Chihuahua. She loves her family, kids –she is very much a puppy and very much a Lab –she loves to get out and run when she can and she loves water. She is a good watch dog. Trying to teach her not to jump on you (which she does sometimes when she gets excited)….but overall a great dog. Potty trained –she tells YOU when she needs to go –usually with a paw on the arm. She is a great dog.” Maddie spends most of her time indoors and frequently stays in the house alone for part of the day with no issues and she’s totally house trained. She does OK on a leash and works a bit with a trainer while her human is away on work travels. Her owner did reveal to us that Maddie occasionally pulls the stuffing out of her toys <GASP!!> (We are happy to tell you that this makes her a perfectly normal 1 year old dog). Maddie is spayed, UTD on all vaccines and on heartworm preventative.

BlakeBlake is a beautiful, black, 2 year old male Labrador Retriever- these pictures don’t do him justice. His owner is being forced to move and only has a limited window to find him a home.  He has a great time with older children and adults, but his playful “labbiness” may not be right for smaller children or persons who are not steady on their feet. He thinks that toys are very special things that should be loved and played with often and, true to his Labrador roots,  he also thinks that water is the best invention ever. Blake has cats in his life and his current owner says “he chases them but has never hurt them” (not exactly a vote of confidence). He gets along with other dogs, but he can be selective as far as other male dogs go (for example, he thinks the male Shiz zu in his life is a fine friend, but he’s not such a fan of male Basset Hounds). Blake needs some basic obedience training- he has lived in kennels almost exclusively so he may also need a little work on house manners. Blake is UTD on all vaccines, but has not been heartworm tested. If you have time to invest training a new dog, Blake just needs a little refinement to reach his full potential. He is beautiful and has tons of potential.

“I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter…the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal. And I was angry. “God,” I said, “this is terrible! Why don’t You do something?” God was silent for a moment and then He spoke softly. “I have done something,” He replied. “I created YOU.” ~ Jim Willis ~
