Our Featured Dog

We need foster families!

This dog is not available for adoption.

This face is just one of the faces that was saved from death in a shelter.

How did we do it? With generous donations from people like you! Also, our foster homes were waiting with open arms to keep these dogs in their house while we find them new homes. Please won't you consider fostering a dog for Rudy's Rescue???

Right now, there are many dogs and puppies in the pound waiting for us to bring them to safety. Without the support of our foster families we cannot pull these dogs from the pound and bring them to Rochester.

If you live in or around Buffalo, Rochester or Syracuse. Please click here to fill out our online application.

Fostering is a good option for those who love dogs but cannot commit to a dog for 10-14 years. Most of our dogs are in their foster homes for two weeks to two months.

Our featured dog is Sammy.

Hi, my name is a Sam. I'm 12 yrs. old, weigh 70 lb, and am told I'm a handsome, purebred yellow Labrador Retriever. My sister, Sasha, is 10 yrs. old, weighs 73 lbs, and I know she's a pretty, purebred chocolate Labrador Retriever. 

We are a bonded pair that can't live without each other. We love each other very much and have lived together since Sasha was 8 weeks old. I’m very sociable and follow our foster Mom around. Sasha keeps track of both of us.

Ask about the Seniors for Seniors adoption program. Seniors are the BEST.

We are well mannered, quietly greet visitors and are socialized with dogs of many sizes and breeds. We’ve never lived with cats but we could meet them. We are spayed/neutered, housebroken, UTD on vaccines, have free reign in the house day or night, and sleep on our pet beds.

We currently have a fenced back yard that only has one step to access from the kitchen, and that works great. We are not candidates for invisible fencing We would both prefer a quieter home and minimal stairs. We are given the opportunity to go outside throughout the day and evening and wouldn't like being left alone all day. 

We know sit, stay, and come. We like to relax next to our fosters when it is reading or TV time. We love attention and respond with lots of tail wagging and a kiss now and then.

Please check out Sasha's profile, too!

Our featured dog is Sasha.

Hi, my name is Sasha. I'm a 10 yr, 73 lb, pretty, purebred chocolate Labrador Retriever. I'm part of what's called a bonded pair! Me and my brother Sam have lived together my whole life and I love him very much. He is a 12 yr, 70 lb, handsome, yellow purebred Labrador Retriever. 

We are available as a bonded pair. Ask us about our Seniors for Seniors adoption program!

Sam is very sociable and follows our foster Mom around. I keep track of both of them so I do not miss out on any fun.

We are well mannered, quietly greet visitors and are socialized with dogs of many sizes and breeds. The family did not have a cat. The children in our previous home have grown up and now off on their own. We are spayed/neutered, housebroken, UTD on vaccines , have free reign in the house day or night, and sleep on our pet beds.

Our foster home has a fenced back yard that only has one step to access from the kitchen, which we appreciate. We are not candidates for invisible fencing We would both prefer a quieter home and minimal stairs, please.

We are given the opportunity to go outside to do our business throughout the day and evening.

Both Sammy and I know sit, stay, and come. We like to relax next to our foster family when it is reading or TV time. We love attention and respond with lots of tail wagging and a kiss now and then.

If you don't already know this, seniors make the BEST dogs. Please have a look at Sam's profile, too.

Our featured dog is Rosco.

Rosco is a 17 month old, purebred Chocolate Lab. 

He successfully completed puppy school and then basic obedience school and knows his commands, including sit and shake. He is up to date on all shots, was neutered at the age of one, is microchipped and potty trained.

A typical Lab, he loves to play in the water, fetching sticks that are thrown or digging underwater for whatever rocks he finds intriguing. Rosco likes to fetch tennis balls and enjoys playing “tug” with a knotted rope.

Rosco sleeps in his crate.

From the time he was a puppy, Rosco lived with a now 9 year old Chihuahua/Yorkie mix that ruled the roost. They got along great for the first 5-6 months, then as time went on, Rosco and the small dog increasingly competed to be the top dog in the household. After working with several trainers, the owners felt the only solution was to keep the dogs completely apart, which is not a good life for anyone, so we took Rosco in to foster, and will find him the perfect forever home. 

So, no small dogs. He'd be a great only dog and could also be good with the right large dog (see the video of him playing with one of his friends). He's got a rough play style that not all dogs appreciate so he would have to meet any resident dogs.

Rosco also lived with a now deceased 16 year old cat, and a 2 year old cat that he liked to play with. He is great with kids and all humans.

Our featured dog is Daphne.

Daphne is a young, dog-friendly Lab mix, hailing from South Carolina. She’s your typical Lab with a sweet personality, who likes to gives kisses, and snuggles.

She is energetic and loves to run and fetch and play with other dogs. Because she also likes to chase squirrels and birds, she needs a home with a fully-fenced yard and is not a candidate for invisible fencing. 

After a fun play session one day, Daphne came up lame. We had her evaluated by a regular vet, as well as an orthopedic vet and both diagnosed a partial CCL tear. The surgeon won’t operate until the tear is worse, since she hasn’t been limping since that episode. To encourage someone to adopt her, Lab Lovers Rescue will sponsor a portion of the surgical cost, if she needs surgery within a year of adoption. Please contact us for details.

Daphne is not cat-tested, so we'd have to check that. She is easily trainable but needs work, including her leash skills.

Weighing ~53 lbs., Daphne is spayed, and up to date on all her shots. She’s looking for her forever home. Is it with you?
