OH MY BARKS! My friend, "Lab Lady" brought by an adorably cute 3-month-old Black Labrador Retriever puppy for you to meet- he reminds me of my cute-self at that age!  Meet Gambler!

Gambler is looking for a "Forever Home" in a rural or suburban single-family home with a fenced in yard.

A pawsomely sweet young fella, he loves getting kisses and ear rubs. He seems to know a few basic commands already but will be wanting to learn more from you! He is a very smart guy and will learn things fast!

As you can imagine, Gambler has typical puppy energy so he will need an adopter who will exercise him daily and provide training too. He loves playing, going for hikes, running, and chewing on a toy or a Kong. He walks well on a leash with an Easy Walk harness.

Gambler would enjoy going to a dog park, doggie daycare or having playdates with other dogs. Socialization is important at this early stage in a dog's life. He can be your one-and-only, dog that is, if you provide him some socialization to enhance his skills. Barks, he will make a great companion for another playful, energetic dog.

At the end of the day, he goes into his crate, whines a few minutes and then crashes. He sleeps through the night!

Watch him play here: Gambler Playing! Watch him hiking here: Gambler Hiking!

Barks, Gambler is your typical puppy with tons of energy. He will need attention and exercising.

Gambler is good with dogs and cats. He is recommended for mini-humans ages 8 and older.

WOOF! A few reminders from my friends at Lab Rescue: Raising a puppy can be very rewarding but a very demanding pursuit. Puppy adopters need to ensure that the puppy:

  • Has a potty/social interaction break every three or four hours until 6 months old to ensure house-training success. 
  • Gets plenty of daily play time and walks. 
  • Has regular interaction with kids, adults, and other dogs to ensure positive socialization. 
  • Two pups from the same litter together will not be placed together.
  • Puppy adoption fee is $350. 
  • A contract with a training addendum and spay/neuter addendum will be completed before a puppy heads home. 
    • Gets the vaccinations in accordance with the Lab Rescue Puppy Protocol and other care as recommended by their vet. 
    • Goes to a formal training program when the puppy is six months old in addition to in-home training efforts.
