Luvin’ Labs Organizational Announcement 

Please note that our owner listing program is changing
We will be happy to courtesy post your lab for you on our website. Interested parties will now contact you directly, Luvin’ Labs will no longer facilitate the placement process. Please be advised that we make no representations nor recommendations about interested parties contacting you. When rehoming your family member, we recommend that you please be diligent in making sure you are finding a good match for both the inquiring family and your dog. We advise you to meet the whole family, meet their existing pets (do a meet and greet with your dog), take your pet to their home and do a home inspection, check their references (both vet and personal), transfer all medical records, and if you are able to, have them sign a form allowing you to reclaim the pet in the event anything happens.

PLEASE DO NOT ADVERTISE YOUR LAB FOR FREE ON CRAIGSLIST OR ANY OTHER INTERNET SWAP MEET TYPE WEBSITE. People monitor Craigslist and other sites to find dogs for fighting rings and many other horrific things.

We recommend surrendering your lab to Animal Humane New Mexico in Albuquerque as a safe alternative to finding a new home. Their contact information is: 615 Virginia St. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87108. 505-255-5523. animalhumanenm.org.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this transition.

All of us at Luvin’ Labs

 

From her rescuer: Lovie was loose at the neighborhood park. It took me 3 weeks to catch her! It was never my plan to keep her, just to catch her and get her back to her original home. She was chipped, but the registered owner did not want her back. She is currently registered to me, but I am hoping to find her perfect forever home. Lovie is a 2 year old, spayed female Labrador and greyhound mix. She is on the small side, only 45 pounds. She is sweet, energetic, eager to please, easy to train, loves people and other dogs. Lovie would make a great walking, running or hiking companion. She is house trained, gets along with other dogs (cats are unknown), is working on her greeting manners (she wants to jump up to greet but is quickly learning no) and is just an all around good girl. If interested in meeting this amazing dog, please contact jkhouha@yahoo.com or 505.821.2759 and leave a message. Please specify Lovie when emailing or calling. Owner Listing

Bruzer1

Bruzer is a 5 year old yellow lab who needs to find a new home.  He currently lives in a small yard that doesn’t meet his needs.  Bruzer is very energetic and loves to run and play.  He has lived with his family since a very small pup, he’s very loving and good with the family’s children.  While he gets along well with the other dogs in the household…a senior lab and a Chihuahua…he needs a  proper introduction to dogs he doesn’t know.  As Bruzer spends almost all his time outside he may need some remedial training on house manners.  Bruzer is left alone often and has learned to jump a fence to find adventure so he needs a home with at least a 6′ fence.

If you are interested in meeting Bruzer 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 10 days.

koko1

This pretty 10 month old young lab mix is Koko, described by her owner as very energetic, loves her belly rubbed and getting treats, cuddly, playful with other dogs, and very much a people dog!  Koko’s owner wants the best for this pup, but realizes that going to school, having no fence and other dogs in the home who are not nice to Koko is not what he wants for her.  Koko spends a lot of time in a crate which for an active pup is not ideal.  Koko is house trained and always eager to learn other good dog qualities.

If you are interested in meeting Koko 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 10 days.

“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 ~
