--ADOPTABLE DOGS--

Puppies and dogs available for adoption will be posted here when they are ready for adoption.  In order to meet and greet available dogs the application must be pre-approved.  Pre-approval can be granted after a successful home visit and veterinary reference.  Pre-approval does not obligate you to adopt the dog you meet and greet.  If it is not a match for you or them, adoption will not take place.  MI Lab Rescue requires adopters are fed a 4 star rated food or higher; please see the available foods at www.dogfoodadvisor.com 


Chloe, 9 months old, spayed female, up to date on all vaccines.  


Getting exercise and basic obedience training...adoption delayed.


This sweetheart is sweet in spite of her beginnings. Bought from a breeder at 8 weeks old, and spent 8-10 hours in the crate everyday, makes for a large adolecent with no manners. Her Foster Mom is starting at square one for Chloe. Labradors are athletes, and MUST exercise DAILY. Without exercise a Lab can become mentally ill.


Foster Mom (Jen) states even though she is starved for structure and direction she shows you how grateful she is to be part of the family. She is smart, smart, smart, so manners will come quickly for Chloe.


Interested in adopting Chloe feel free to start the application process at the tab above. Meet and greets are NOT scheduled until adopters are pre-approved. Pre-approval does not obligate the applicant to adopt. If it is not a match for the adopter or Chloe the adoption will not take place.


She will require an adopter that has an advanced exercise plan in place. She is worth it, absolutely the sweetest gal around.

Onyx, babies Mom.  Onyx is the sweetest 2 yr old Labbie blend ever.  Onyx is utd, and hw-.  She will spayed approx 4 weeks after pups are weaned. She will be able to choose her "furever" family in late March.


Onyx originally came from a hoarding situation in Louisiana where she spent the majority of her 2 years in a small crate crammed into a vets office with several others, and then she had an unfortunate unsecured shelter where an in tact male dug into.  Onyx came to MI about 7.5 weeks pregnant.  She delivered the sweet babies above in the best foster home on December 16th.  

You would never know she came from such a bleak situation, she is the sweetest, balanced gal.


Onyx obviously will be with our Rescue until at least she has weaned her babies, and then she can choose her "furever" family that will care for her and treat her like the Queen she is for the next 10-15 years.  Please put Onyx's name on your application if you would like her to consider your home as her "furever" home.

Is a Lab the right dog for you?

The Labrador Retriever has a strong hunting instinct and loves to roam. They are active, but calm and obedient if trained properly. Swimming and retrieving are the favorite activities of this breed, and they make good hunters in the field, and wonderful swimming companions. Labrador Retrievers are keen on learning, affable types that get along well with other animals, children, and just about anyone they meet. They are however, fond of eating. This trait can be their downfall, for an overfed Labrador is a very dull dog. Regular exercise is a must to keep them fit. On a required exercise scale, Labs rank at the top with a 10 along with Vizslas and Weimaraners. The Labs gregarious temperament makes them a top choice for families, but not an especially good choice for guard dog duty.
