Meet Arlo! He is a handsome one-year-old male chocolate Labrador Retriever. Arlo was surrendered to WCLRR after he had been hit by a car. Unfortunately, his family could not afford the expensive surgeries that Arlo needed.  Since becoming a WCLRR pup, Arlo has been with one amazing foster family for his complete recovery. He has endured two separate surgeries to repair his elbow.  Arlo's prognosis looks excellent; he may always have a slight limp and occasionally needs some extra rest and possibly some anti-inflammatory medication.  However, our veterinarian feels he will live a normal life and have no significant restrictions.  He is a happy and healthy dog but will need to watch his diet to maintain a lean frame. Extra weight is never good for a dog's joints.  Arlo would benefit from some rehabilitation to help strengthen his leg. Swimming is a great low-impact exercise. Arlo is a big boy who can be misleading because he is still very much a puppy.  Arlo is crate trained and housebroken. He sleeps through the night in his open crate. Arlo is astute and learns quickly. He knows many commands like sit, talk, drop, down, shake, stay, leave, and place. Arlo is powerful, so a pinch collar works well until Arlo has had some more leash training. He plays catch but loves tug-o-war.  Arlo is still a puppy, and his new family should have appropriate chew toys available for him. He also needs to be watched because he loves to chew any paper he can find, including the napkin on your lap! You have to keep socks picked up because they will be in his mouth if you are not watching him. He also likes to pull the stuffing out of soft squeaky toys. He has figured out how to open the trash lid, so all trash cans must be locked, under, or in a cabinet. He is not a big counter surfer, but to be safe, always keep your counters free of anything dangerous. Arlo is great in the car settles in very nicely.  Arlo loves to eat and eats fast; therefore, he uses a slow feed bowl. He is very food motivated. You can hold up a specific treat, and Arlo will go in his crate without a word. He is very curious about other dogs. He doesn't lunge or bark at people or other dogs when out on a walk. Over time he has become very good with his foster mom's cat. Arlo loves to be part of the family. He likes to take breaks during his walk and observe people. However, Arlo wouldn't be fit for a family looking for a dog to run with or not home much. He thrives with people and doesn't like to be separated from his humans. Arlo doesn't jump on people or the furniture or beds. He is used to boundaries and using a dog door to go outside when he needs to. Arlo prefers to be in the house with his family. He has a booming bark and can startle people that walk up to the front door. His barking is not excessive, though, and he can be quieted down quickly. Arlo shows affection for you by putting his head in your lap for some ear scratches or leans against you. He greets you when you get home with a bit of wiggly dance. Arlo has the softest and most enormous ears you have ever seen. He also snores, drools, and has the sweetest disposition.  Arlo is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, and microchipped.  If you are interested in Arlo and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "ARLO" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Champ! He is a gentle and loving 7 to 8-year-old male yellow Labrador Retriever.  Champ was surrendered to WCLRR when his family was no longer able to have dogs where they lived. Champ is very loyal to his person, always by his foster mom's side and sleeping on or next to the bed at night. Champ is excellent on the leash and walks, with occasional pulling if he sees a squirrel and sometimes other dogs.  He gets along with both dogs in his foster house, one male and one female, and has mastered the doggie door.    Champ is simply a delight to have around and will be fine as a solo dog with love and attention or with another doggie companion.  Champ is the perfect companion for a family looking for a low-key, low to medium-energy dog.  He loves his walks and has been hiking.  He rides great in the car and would love to hang with his family on errands and outings.  Champ is a little overweight and out of shape. His new family needs to start him at a slow pace for exercise, so he builds up some endurance and makes sure he is on a healthy diet to help him lose a few pounds.    Champ has been neutered, completed blood and lab panels, microchipped, and is up to date on his shots.    If you are interested in Champ and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "CHAMP" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Jack! He is a male yellow Labrador Retriever almost two years old. Jack came to WCLRR when his family realized a young dog's commitment was more than they were prepared for and felt they could not give Jack the needed attention.   Jack is happy, well-mannered, well-behaved, and low keyed for a dog his age. He is a little shy at first, but he loves being with his people and loves the company of other dogs. His favorite times to play are the morning and late afternoon. His favorite game is chase. He loves to run in the yard with his two foster brothers. He is swift and agile! Jack is completely house trained and has had no accidents in his foster home. He is very comfortable and prefers to be indoors. He has been working on his crate skills during his foster stay and has become quite comfortable in his crate. His foster family highly recommends he be allowed to use his crate for his continued success in the house while you are away. Jack does not counter surf, get into the trash, or beg for food. He is very consistent in his obedience training but, like all young dogs, could benefit from some additional training. His recall is spot on and flawless. He sits well, stays, and waits to improve. He walks nicely on a leash unless he is distracted by a lizard or bird.  Jack is perfect in almost every aspect, except is his ability to break out of the backyard. He manages to do this quietly and without causing any damage or bringing attention to himself. However, he is methodical in his pursuit of freedom and needs a home with a block wall and constant surveillance/supervision in the backyard. This will be the most significant and most challenging obstacle to overcome with him.  Jack has recently shown a relatively high prey drive, so a home with small dogs, cats, and other small animals would probably not be a good fit for him. However, his foster feels that he would adjust and accept smaller animals with the appropriate supervision and training. Additionally, Jack would benefit from training to help curb his ability to be an escape artist. Honestly, Jack is an exceptional dog. He is well-behaved and extraordinary in the house.   Jack is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.  If you are interested in Jack and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "JACK" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Roman! He is a big, sweet, lovable five-year-old Labrador Retriever with a beautiful glossy black coat. He came to WCLRR through a high desert shelter, where he was listed as an owner surrender. Once notified, WCLRR immediately took him in. He underwent a complicated neuter surgery, and during the surgery. During his preop evaluation, the doctor discovered Roman is suffering from hip dysplasia.  Roman is doing well on medication to control inflammation in his hips. He enjoys several short (under one mile) daily walks and romping in the backyard with his toys. Roman thoroughly enjoys his toys and acts like a silly puppy when entertaining himself with them – flipping toys in the air, batting at them, and chasing them.  WCLRR consulted with a specialist to determine the best course of action for Roman's hips, and at this time, the rescue was advised surgery isn't indicated. Roman shows no signs of pain or limping as long as his activity level is kept moderate. However, he will need medication to keep him comfortable for the rest of his life.  Roman is crate trained, but he prefers to sleep on his bed near his foster parents at night. He sleeps well through the night and waits for his owners to awake before he starts to stir. Roman has good house manners and seems to know basic commands and how to use a doggy door. He did, however, have a few accidents in the first few days in his foster home. Once he became comfortable in his new surroundings, he didn't have anymore. Roman's new family needs to understand there may be a few potty accidents as Roman gets used to his new home. Roman is very food-driven, but he takes treats gently. Despite his fondness for food, Roman doesn't show any signs of food aggression. His foster found training is more straightforward because he responds well to treats.  He will sniff around counters and in trash cans searching for food, so his new family needs to take care to keep counters clear of anything that could be toxic to him and have trash cans with lids.  Roman will do best with a family where someone is home most of the day. He prefers to be next to his family and rest in his crate nearby as you work or watch TV. His fosters leave the crate open, so Roman can come out to snuggle or a belly rub. He may become anxious when first left alone but settles down after a short while. Roman loves walks and is good on a leash. He doesn't pull or wander. However, Roman tends to get nervous when exposed to other dogs and cats and can be leash reactive.  He will circle, jump and bark. He needs further training to become comfortable around other animals, but for now, he requires to be the "one and only" pet in his new home. Roman is a big, strong, friendly boy who would make a great companion to love, pet, and snuggle. Roman is neutered, microchipped, and up to date with shots. If you are interested in Roman and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "ROMAN" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Sophie! She is a sweet female yellow Labrador Retriever sixteen months old.  Unfortunately, during Covid, her owner could not take her places or expose her to many experiences; therefore, Sophie is a timid young Labrador.   Sophie tends to want to attach herself to a person in the home. Her foster mom says Sophie is a Velcro dog and seems to prefer women. She will follow her everywhere and looks for her when she is not in sight.  Her foster family is working on her becoming more friendly to other people, including men.  Sophie was in a previous foster home were several other dogs and a male in the house, and she loved being with them.  Sophie will need a home that understands her insecurities will provide her time and patience to adjust. In addition, Sophie needs a calm and quieter home where someone will be home most of the time.  We do not believe a home with young children is a good fit for her.  Sophie was recently taken on a camping trip with her foster family and enjoyed the new adventure.  She was friendly to everyone, loved sitting on the step in her foster family's pool, and played fetch.  Sophie can be very playful after she has relaxed and is not scared.  Sophie is housebroken and learned the doggie door at her foster home.   She also loves to cuddle with her foster mom.  Sophie knows some basic commands but will need additional training. For example, she pulls and weaves on her walks.   Sophie would love to be in a home with other dogs to play with and help her be more secure and confident.  Sophie is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.  If you are interested in Sophie and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "SOPHIE" in the subject line explaining why she is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Stevie! He is a stunning blind male yellow Labrador Retriever, approximately six years old. Stevie came to WCLRR when his family could no longer keep him. Stevie is currently in a safe and loving foster home with a lot of experience fostering blind Labrador Retrievers. Aside from blindness, Stevie is a healthy, happy boy who loves his people.  Stevie is a delightful dog who enjoys having his belly and back scratched and being gently rubbed around his ears. He is fine with the dogs he's fostered with, and with an occasional bump here and there, cruises around his foster home with ease. Stevie can get up and down stairs without issues.  Stevie is housebroken. However, his family should let him outside regularly to avoid an accident. A nightly potty before bedtime ensures he'll sleep through the night. He is a typical Labrador Retriever and loves his food and treats, and while he gets very excited about his meals, he takes treats gently. Stevie's blindness is caused by cataracts, probably due to poor breeding practices. WCLRR was hopeful we could surgically correct the condition. However, during his preop appointment, the eye specialist found his disease had advanced to a stage where surgery is no longer an option. Fortunately, we can maintain his eyes with daily medication (eye drops) and prevent them from ending up with Glaucoma. A visit to the eye specialist should be part of his yearly health routine. Due to his blindness, Stevie has zero depth perception and could accidentally nip a child's hand holding a toy or treat; therefore, we cannot adopt Stevie to a family with young children. Stevie needs work on walking on the leash, which appears something his family never did with him, and now that he's blind, it has become more of a challenge. He is an extremely powerful dog and will need an owner that has good upper body strength until he learns better leash skills. Stevie enjoys riding in the car. He'll need to be partially lifted in and should be tethered so he doesn't wander around during your driving.  We'd like to see Stevie go to a home that has experience with larger blind dogs but it is not a requirement. There are some things that he'll need accommodation with and particular objects removed from his path. Once he learns the layout of the home, however, he can navigate it well. If he goes to a home with another canine friend, the other dog should not be reactive if Stevie accidentally bumps into or steps on them. He enjoys a good game of "bitey-face" with his dog friends, which is typical Labrador Retriever play. An Ophthalmologist examined Stevie, and their full report will be made available to potential adopters. He is up to date on his shots, was neutered, and is microchipped.  If you are interested in Stevie and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "STEVIE" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.  If you have NOT filled out an adoption application yet with WCLRR, please click HERE.  If you have been approved to adopt with WCLRR, follow the instructions given to you during your home interview (and in this bio) explaining how to request being considered to adopt this dog. show less
