Ten Lovely Adoptable Labs in Michigan


I had a Lab growing up and he was my constant companion, best friend, and favorite snuggle buddy all wrapped into one. He was sweet, playful, even tempered, and a real loving guy. He was my best friend for many years; although it’s been 10 years since he passes I still miss him dearly. Labs will always have a special place in my heart, one stole mine from the moment he entered my life (even though he peed on me on our very first trip home).

Update – All of the lovely Labs have been adopted. If you’re looking for a new best friend start your search on petfinder.com.

Labs Make Loyal Best Friends

Everyone loves Labs. They’re athletic, intelligent, playful, and have a sweet disposition that can melt anyone’s heart. Since 1991 they’ve been the most popular breed of dog registered in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

Of course with such popularity a large amount of Labs end up homeless each year. Whether it’s due to financial hardship, allergies, or moving, shelters have heard it all. At no fault of their own these Labs have ended up in shelters. This week we’re featuring 10 lovely adoptable Labs and Lab mixes currently waiting for their second chance. They’re all adoptable in southeastern Michigan shelters and rescue organizations.

If you’re looking to add another four legged friend to your family it’s hard to go wrong with a sweet Lab. They take the phrase man’s best friend seriously – you can’t find a more loyal and loving best friend than a devoted Lab.

Sadie is available for adoption at the Oakland Pet Adoption Center in Auburn Hills, Michigan

Us dog lovers know that seniors make great companions – help spread the word about this lovely pair. I know the right home is out there for them.
