Ally is a very special girl. I pulled her from a local shelter in SC and fostered her while she waited for her heart worm treatment. Ally was sweet and calm, loved affection and listened to commands. She went on to be fostered in two other homes while she received her 2 month treatment and was a beloved foster dog in each home. One even considered adopting her but chose to continue fostering for us.

Ally is around two years old, 55lbs, crate-trained, cat-friendly, housebroken, would prefer a home without children and an owner who will continue the exercises she has been working so hard on during training. She has learned exemplary leash-skills and appreciated boundaries and would be an ideal companion dog.

  Ally is located in CT.

Steve is a handsome, 70lb Lab/Dane mix who escaped death at Harris County in Houston, a shelter we pull from  because it fills up with black dogs and they are first to go down in Texas. Steve was given a little extra time because of his personality and demeanor which is illustrated in his video below. We believe he is about 2 years old, walks well on his no-pull leash and is crate-trained. He attaches to his person and would like a large couch to lie on. Steve is a low-key guy but is working on his jumping manners and needs a strong leader . He will only be adopted out to a strong leader who will continue to put in the work needed to give Steve the confidence with new people. Located in TX. 

Reggie is a GORGEOUS six year old lab mix who was dumped at an LA shelter. She had little chance of getting out alive as a "senior" black dog. Luckily, LBDR was able to welcome her. Reggie is in boarding and coming into her own. She is relaxing and even enjoying being a dog who is able to run, play and feel safe. Reggie will be a great girl for a lucky family and we will arrive after her HW treatment in at the end of March.

Lola was used for breeding during her five years of life. She is safe now and on her way to a better life. Lola has "Strabismus" which refers to her eyes pointing opposite directions. This is likely a genetic inheritance and common in Boston Terriers with no repercussions. We have done blood work to rule out any other cause and all is good! Lola has been fostered with kids and dogs and looks forward to retirement with a loving human. She is an ideal companion dog for someone who is looking for a best friend to walk with and cuddle. Located in CT.


Regina (Reggie)

Ramsey is a gentle giant who has been looking for his forever home for months. Emaciated and living on a chain attached to a dog house in rural Mississippi, Ramsey was saved by a report from a landscaper who was concerned for his welfare. He had no water or shade and the owner surrendered him to animal control. They didn't really want him" is what they told the officer. Being a big black dog has crossed him off the list for being adopted in MS. Ramsey sat in the shelter until a kind, one-woman rescue took him in. She knew how sweet this big guy is and much he deserves a loving home. LBDR is happy to help Ramsey find one! 85lbs and four years old, Ramsey loves other dogs and is gentle with even the smallest. He REALLY adores his person and would be a great companion or service dog. He is anxiously awaiting his chance for  real life with a loving human. His foster says he is a fantastic pup. He is not cat-tested but with his sweet-nature,  he is likely scared of them or  indifferent.  Located in CT.

Buddy: 4-5 years, 70lbs



Tyson, 9 months, 13lbs

Velvet was about to be put down before Thanksgiving in a rural South Texas shelter. A volunteer (who was "ashamed" to be from a town that killed so many dogs) reached out to me and asked if we would take her because she is a special girl. Velvet is a black, 6/7 year old, 38lb female mix who is HW positive so she had 3 strikes against her. This girl  is kid-tested, loves to play with other dogs her own size or larger and loves her people. She would do best in a cat-free home. Velvet has been described as, "the perfect dog" who puts her paw on you when she is close-by and just wants to be a companion. She is a calm, loving girl who deserves a forever home! Located in SC. 



Adoption Pending

About 16 weeks old, and around 25lbs, these three are super-sweet, playful and smart! They are learning quickly and even know how to go to the door when they need to go outside! All three are being fostered with kids and other dogs in CT.They will not last long!
