Lenais an adorable, petite lab mix who is full of love and curiosity. She is between 

1/2 years old, (48lbs but looks about 35) and an absolute doll! She was stuck in a rural shelter in SC with at least 10 other black dogs and we were lucky to be able to help her. Lena is with a foster now who has a female dog and is so happy to have a buddy. She is learning leash-skills, commands and how to appreciate the good life. Lena is not destructive, is fine being gated and is gentle with kids but still has puppy qualities as she is learning so prefers kids over 5. This girl will bring a smile to your face! Located in SC.

Duane is a very handsome Walker Coonhound. He is a strong, muscular boy who needs to lose about five pounds to get his body back in shape! Duane has been in a loving home nut not receiving the exercise and consistency he needs to feel at ease. This sensitive, old soul was stressed out and hiding in his crate much of the time which is not the environment he deserves. Duane would like a family who is present and will take him for walks or to the dog park where he runs free, leading the party of pups. He is extremely affectionate and enjoys being close to his person. He is calm in the house and loves to lie around in that lazy hound fashion. Duane is house-broken, crate-trained, E-fence-friendly and walks well on a leash. He knows how to sit and shake and does well with recall. Around 2/3 years old and 60lbs, Duane would love to be a companion dog or find a family with kids as he is easy-going and gentle. He is a GEM! Located in SC. 

Farrah is a gorgeous girl! At 11 months and 53lbs, she is a mix of something with large jowls and a retriever/collie coat. Farrah was rescued in MS by a kind woman but she already had too many dogs and felt that Farrah deserved a home of her own. She arrived to CT and is with her foster family with two canine brothers. Farrah is getting used to the leash and being out in the real world which can be a scary place. She was terrified to get on transport but has calmed down and realizes she is safe. We are allowing Farrah to become comfortable in her foster home and will have more details as she settles. She would like a home with kids over 10 and has not been cat-tested. Located in CT.


Marshall (also known as Marshmallow due to his amazing cuddling ability) is a gorgeous 32lb spaniel mix. At 7 years old, Marshall found himself in a rural SC shelter, scared and  alone. LBDR was contacted because he was heart worm positive and as a senior, has two strikes against him.  We are lucky to have this super-sweet boy with us and were surprised by his puppy-like gait and playful energy. He ADORES other dogs and would be a great sibling.  His senior foster enjoys his sweet nature, love of all dogs and people and even adores her parrot! Marshall is housebroken, prefers not to be crated and is non-destructive. He adores his person and will make a wonderful companion dog to someone looking for a best friend.  Marshall loves kids and is a gentle soul He is the perfect size and walks well on a leash. This is one special guy! Located in CT.

​​Higgins was stuck in a SC shelter for over four months. Being a black male dog in a southern shelter is a curse and this guy  had heart worm disease as well. That's three strikes for a sweet, playful and well-mannered dog who did nothing wrong.  The shelter staff adored Higgins and asked LBDR to give this guy a chance. We are glad we were able to get him out and that one of the shelter staff was willing to take him to her home for 10 days before transport. Higgins  is a 45lb lab mix who loves going for walks and is great on the leash. He is a gentle boy at 2/3 years old and has been treated for his heart worm. He has a spunky personality and would love to be a regular at the dog park. He is being fostered with a young boy and was also in a home with an infant and a toddler and is cat-friendly too! We look forward to placing him in the loving home he so deserves! Located in CT.

Miais a beautiful 5 year old lab mix who is laid-back and loving. She found herself on the euth list in NC and LBDR was asked to consider her. The shelter volunteer could not stand to see this sweet girl miss out on life. Mia is and easy-going girl, loves people and dogs and will make a great companion dog. She  was non-reactive in her local foster-home to two cats but will need a slow intro as with any new dog. Mia is an alpha female inside the home but enjoys playing with females at the park. She is gentle with kids but would prefer over 10 and would love a male playmate. You can see in the video that Mia is the shelter "test dog" to make the new intakes comfortable! She is a gem. Located in SC.

Roois looking for a new forever home! At 80lbs, Roo is a strong dog who has become reactive while walking on-leash. After careful consideration, the owner feels she is not a strong-enough leader for Roo and we are looking for the ideal home for him.
When Roo sees another dog on a walk, his excitement level goes up and he barks. This is correctable behavior but the current owner sought out a quick-fix and had multiple training methods which have only confused Roo. He needs one owner, one method and a confident leader who can show this once jovial dog that walks can be fun as well as focused. Roo settles quickly once the other dog passes so we are confident that he just needs the right person.
Roo would prefer a quieter area where there isn't as much stimulus and a yard to play in. He loved playing with other dogs prior to his placement but hasn't been socialized this past year. He needs to build his confidence first.
Roo has lived with two boys and is a loving, sweet dog. He is large and jumps up in excitement so he would like a home with kids over 10. He adores his teenage brothers and playing ball in the yard. Roo would love to find a home that gives him the love and training he needs to be a confident, calm dog. LBDR will include a package with the trainer he is working with in Stamford CT to set him up for success.
