Adoption Monday: Rusty, Labrador Retriever, Clovis, CA

Rusty is a yellow male, approx. 10 mos. old and 53 lbs. 

Rusty came to Lab Rescue via a rural area where his people did not come looking for him. He was saved by a kind family that cared for him until he came into rescue.

Rusty is a sweet young boy who we think has a little something else in him, but whatever that might be, he's a wiggle butt happy kinda guy! 

His tail looks to have been docked, but that certainly doesn't bother him or hamper him in any way.

Rusty is very happy with another doggie friend and although interested, not overly so in the cat. 

Rusty loves to swim and play with the ball. He needs some leash work but we're working on that. Rusty, like any other lab puppy his age has a lot of energy and will need regular, consistent exercise to remain well adjusted, happy and healthy.

He will need positive reinforcement training and obedience class to help him become a good canine citizen.

Rusty is very smart and eager to learn and with proper direction, we feel he will be a wonderful companion dog for any family. 

If you are interested in adopting through Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno, you must first fill out an Adoption Application. Thank you for opting to adopt!

Rusty's Petfinder listing.


Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno has been rescuing and re-homing Labrador Retrievers since 2008. The primary source of their Labs is from City and County Shelters. They  are an all volunteer organization covering Fresno, Kings, Tulare and Madera counties.

There is a huge number of Labradors ending up at the Fresno SPCA and surrounding area rural shelters. As so many Labs are being surrendered or abandoned due to the large number of foreclosures in Fresno County. As a direct result our resources are severely strained. 

Every Lab gets a veterinary exam, inoculations, test for parasites, heartworm, microchip, and spay/neuter. Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno takes care of broken bones and provides care for the neglected and abandoned dog. They take in senior and special needs Labs and provide for foster care until they can be placed in forever homes.
