Dec 19, 2008 at 14:09 J Hill ( It is difficult to put into words how wonderful it is to have tyler in our lives. June and the team at labrador welfare matched us together perfectly. Although I have never had a rescue dog before but all i can say is if your thinking about adopting a dog June and her team are the best people to find you the perfect dog. I was sad to hear that funds are running low for the labrador welfare with vets bills needing to be paid and more dogs needing good homes. Please think of adopting a dog. You would not believe how adopting Tyler has enriched our lives and i have made several new dog walking mates!!!  I am going to try and get some media coverage in our local paper to hopefully encourage more people to consider adopting a dog or supporting labrador welfare. is this something you could do in your area?  Merry Christmas to all and best wishes for 2009 
Dec 19, 2008 at 07:58 k wright ( we have had bayley since the spring what a character he is so loving and gets on well with our cats( now have two) he acts as peace maker. thanks to june for matching us up.bayley is our 3rd lab but our 1 st boy

Nov 30, 2008 at 15:40 Julie Hill ( Just wanted to say a big thank you to June and all at labrador rescue.We had to have our black labrador casey put to sleep at the age of 15 and we were missing having a dog so much, the house felt empty. with the help of labrador welfare we recently adopted a black labrador called Tyler and she is adorable!It feels like we have known her forever.We have so much fun with her although she loses on average one ball a day!!! Great fun trying to find them though! I must say we did not laugh the day she brought in a dead mouse and popped it on the lounge carpet!  Tyler has made me and my two daughters very happy.  Thanks again.
Nov 29, 2008 at 16:55 Gill ( I have a black labrador (7 months) who is adorable but a handful at the same time, loves to play and likes to be on the go all the time. Didn't get her from rescue but would consider rehoming a dog in the future. Looks like a brilliant site, with nice people. 
Nov 16, 2008 at 06:00 lesley langer ( It was with deep regret and many many hours of soul searching to try and find a way around an awful situation...that we decided to give our gorgeous yellow lab Buster up in August this year,we discovered this brilliant place and got in touch with June,she helped us see that even with how upsetting it was to give Buster up we were doing the right thing by giving him the chance to go to a home where he had people spending more time with him,since we had got him my job had become more demanding and I couldnt spend as much time walking him,playing with him as i would have liked.We took Buster in and have kept a close eye on his stay at the kennels and were very happy(if not a litle sad too as it means we cant keep up to date with his progress)to see he was up for adoption,and looking today I cant find him on either the dogs for re-homing or the dogs re-homed???I am presuming he has recently been re-homed.Thanks for all the help and the reassurance he will be fine and we did the right thing.Keep up the good work!!!!!If you have re-homed Buster the 22month yellow lab I hope you have many happy years with him and his excitable ways!!Thanks again June.
Nov 15, 2008 at 14:31 ema(milos mummy) ( hi its me again milos doing well and after some months of long and hard thinking about getting milo a companion we decided it would be the best (AT THE MOMENT)not to have another lab as much as i would LOVE another we decided it wasnt fair because the house and car are not big enough for 2 large dogs, but it didnt end there milo and myself where having breakfast when the doorbell rang and it was my friend with her puppy (jack russell) and going against everything we said about NO puppies, we offered her a home. Match made in heaven milo and poppy were made for each other, they spend every hour together, playing, eating & sleeping(bit of a size difference) but they dont mind.if someone could tell me how to upload pics i would love for everyone to see how milo is.
Nov 04, 2008 at 19:01 chantel briody ( I used to be a memebr of labrador welfare and received their newsletter and sent used postage stamps, my beautiful labrador Jake was put to sleep last september he wasnt a rescue but he was a cheeky loveable friendly dog, I had him for nearly 14 years
Nov 03, 2008 at 14:34 jon ( i have a black lab he is about 26 months old ,we got bobby from lab rescue from 5 months old ,we now realise he is a dog with mental problems with regard to behaviour . If there is someone without children with patients maybe you and bobby can have many happy summers together .PLEASE E ;MAIL ME BECAUSE I DON T WANT TO SEND HIM TO KENNELS
Oct 30, 2008 at 10:39 Sam Alexander ( Hi, Hope you can help. We are looking for a female lab, age 3-6 years, black or yellow. We have sent an application form, but haven\'t heard back so wondered if you\'d actually received it. Many thanks Sam
Oct 20, 2008 at 11:41 lynda nelson ( please find me a choc lab any age prefer female
Oct 16, 2008 at 10:42 lynda nelson ( i am looking for a choclate lab pref female i have a yellow one shes gorgous and evryones friend
Oct 09, 2008 at 10:32 Michele ( It continues to get worse regarding the animal situation in our home.  We have had the bunny returned to us when we got back from our holidays and \'Oh no\', the son & hubby have the watery eyes and sneezing with him. At least a rabbit can live outside. We couldn\'t bear to give up on another pet.  Funny how I always recognise people by their dogs, especially the lab people... and it feels wrong that more people than ever are buying labs now, obviously they are trying to upset me. I have to stop being so touchy!  Recently whilst in Scotland, we came across a family that had three labs, yellow, choc and black. I was soooo jealous!  Maybe in 40 years when my son has left home and I live a a disabled shelter because the hubby has ran off to Vegas, then a pup can keep me company.  Love to June and all you Labrador people.  After thought:  Think about it; have you ever met a horrible human who owns a lab? I haven\'t.
Oct 03, 2008 at 15:20 RICHARD TOWERS ( Good, but struggled to find it again, once I had navigated away from it.
Oct 01, 2008 at 12:25 Jayne Fox ( We had Eddie from Labrador welfare, they are so helpful and efficient. We love Eddie dearly and he soon became part of our family. I would recommend anyone wanting a dog to contact them, it was the best thing we did! 
Oct 01, 2008 at 11:28 Helen Spilman ( Its Rolys\\\'s Happy Gotcha day\\\" today, we have had him 2 years and life would not be the same without him. He has his little ways but we love him so thanks to everyone there for giving us ROLY.  Helen xxx
Sep 21, 2008 at 19:04 ema(mills mummy) ( I left a message 1year ago to say I hope to find another lab from this amazing charity and I\'m pleased to say it could be soon, as for milo he\'s the best we recently took our first camping holiday with him (in a tent) it was the best hol ever milo still enjoys swimming (in summer) bit cold now so he is spoilt with a momthly warm hydrobath and we have just finished training so we can take him mountain biking safely he loves a good run in the forest weekly. Such a quick learning dog he was matched to us perfectly. Being a childminder I was worried about him but he works well in the house being so gentle around kids knowing playtime is for outside, we are now looking for a friend for him as our 3 guinea pigs died recently I can tell he misses his kisses from them and the hamsters not the same (she bites) so hopefully soon.
Sep 20, 2008 at 11:57 DR MCPARLIN (  looks a great site

I am the proud owner of two young labs




Sep 08, 2008 at 16:04 Val Brown No E-Mail Address Given Mike and I are so looking forward to the prospect of finding a pal for Oscar - aged - 12 months since his mentor - aged 13 years - died.
Sep 05, 2008 at 11:17 Margaret Fletcher ( We have now had Duke for over 3 months & he really is an absolute treasure, he loves running & playing with other dogs but in the house is quite content to lay quietly unless his toys are out! He is a very clever dog & was superb when I came out of hospital a few weeks ago after a major op, soon realising I wasn\\\'t annoyed with him when he came up to me & went to lay down straight away.  So pleased we got in touch with Labrador Welfare
Aug 28, 2008 at 09:59 anna marie hancock ( we adopted a labrador from your website just over a year ago.. me and my partner are willing to help any way we can because we are both labrador lovers.. if any one has any events or charitys coming up please let us know how we can help thanx 07825917700 or
Aug 26, 2008 at 07:04 Helen Pearson ( Just got back from our hols camping in Ashbourne.The look on Errols face was a picture. Were they honestly expecting me to rough it at my age! As the week went on he gave himself the job of sitting outside the tent and saying hello to everyone as they went passed. We found a nice steady walk for him on the Tissington trail.As usual he made new friends and seemed to really enjoy the holiday. Hopefully we can take him again next year. 
Aug 21, 2008 at 20:09 Simon Stead ( Well, we have just come back from holiday (camping at Whitby) and there is not alot that I can complain about with Harvey. He was (as he always is) the perfect dog. He absolutely loved the beaches and was able to run round like the nutter he is. He was brilliant at night and just slept on his cushion in the tent and didn\'t once try to escape under the canvas. He finally discovered that he was a dog and that he could bark as he did not like it when the kids went off playing on the beach without him.  I can honestly say that Labrador Welfare have done the best job ever matching us with Harvey and again a great big thanks and I wish we had done this sooner.
Aug 09, 2008 at 11:54 edana Wragg ( I cant find the main web page, where has it gone. In the mean time hello to everyone who has a dog from rainbow. X
Aug 04, 2008 at 08:59 Sue Green ( lovely site keep up the good work :)
Jun 26, 2008 at 11:38 Claire No E-Mail Address Given Would recommend anyone to use the easyfundraising website to help Lab Welfare, I\'ve used it for about 4 months now and \"raised\" over 60 without really trying. We\'ve had our Lab for over a year now and he\'s an absolute dream - June does a great job of matching you up
Jun 20, 2008 at 05:15 Alison Higham (
Keep up the good work :o)
Jun 17, 2008 at 19:40 John W Kistler ( My Black Lab passed away recently. I had him since my heart bypass in 2000. I and my wife have such a void. I desperately need another black lab for joy, companionship and comfort. 
Jun 14, 2008 at 11:22 Edana ( Just come back from fun day at Rainbow kennels. Such a joy to meet so many happy dogs and happy dog owners, not one grumble or growl to be heard. For years, before they all sadly passed away I used to be mom to a family of terriers.Then I adopted my lab \'Paddy\' in April this year. It was so pleasing that today every dog Paddy wanted to play with (and he wants to play with every dog he meets)they also wanted to play with him.  It was great to meet some dogs I have only previously seen on the web site and they were as lovely in real life as they are in the photos. Labrador owners are as nice as their dogs and I\'m proud to be part of that pack.Thoroughly enjoyed the day and will definatly go again next year.Thanks again to all at Lab welfare.XX 
Jun 11, 2008 at 12:11 Margaret Fletcher ( We have had Duke for just over 2 weeks & can\'t believe how well he has settled. Our old black lab Zak died 6 weeks ago & when we were contacted to say there was a suitable match we weren\'t sure if it was too soon, but as soon as we saw Duke we knew he was right for us. He loves going for walks in the park, chasing his ball & getting used to meeting other dogs & people. He has settled very quickly at home to say he was only 18 months old when we got him. Thanks to everyone involved in rehoming, you do a great job.
Jun 08, 2008 at 05:27 Ann Bennett ( Eddie arrived with us a year ago after a number of changes of home and he was only just a year old.He is our third labrador welfare adoption and has proved to be a delight - at first he was in quite an agitated state but a year on he is far less anxious and has settled doewn with our elderly labrador Tetley a treat . The important thing for us has been to stick with it and expect that with such a disrupted history we would have an anxious boy on our hands . he is certainly the brightest of the four labradors we have had and has reminded us of the bonuses of having a young dog-he is great fun always ready for an adventure . Thank you to June for her support , the message from our family is that persevering is well worth it, but you have to look at the long term picture if the first weeks are a little demanding. Eddie is part of our family and will not be moving on again! 
Jun 04, 2008 at 13:39 Helen Spilman ( Just to let everyone know that Lab Welfare won the rescue of the month award for the following month (June), if you check out Labrador forum site there are finding lots of different ways to raise money for June and her team
Jun 01, 2008 at 22:57 Simon Stead ( Comments:We have had Harvey now for just over two weeks, it feels like he has lived with us since he was a puppy. I could never imagine that a dog could settle in so well and so quickly in to a new home that has got two active young children. The support and contact that we have received since adopting Harvey has been excellent. It felt that if we did have any problems then we were never alone and could ring at any time for help. We were rather apprehensive about getting a dog and expected to have some teething problems when we first came home and thought that he would take some time to settle in. After the car ride home where he just sat in the car without any fuss, wandered round the garden and didn\'t dig anything up and introducing him to the kids we knew that we had made the right choice of dog. The first night was amazing, we put his cushion down and gave him a treat, he laid down and we didn\'t hear anything from him until we came down the next morning.  I can honestly say that I wish we had done this sooner as now cannot imagine being without Harvey.  Thanks to all at Labrador Welfare and will certainly encourage others to use you should they want a rescue dog.
May 27, 2008 at 10:27 Lorraine Gray ( Rocky has been living with us now for 6 months, he has perfect manners in our home and is adaptable in all the situations we have presented to him, he is great with the children & our cat. he has got fitter over the few months and put some weight on, He is a very BIG lab, but we were advised by our vet that he needed more weight on. We do have a spot of bother around other dogs , but i have found the support & encouragement & advice always recieved from June & gang extremley helpfull. I would recommend Lab welfare to anyone looking for a rescue dog To come here ! We adore or Beautiful Boy. 
May 14, 2008 at 13:26 Sheena Miller No E-Mail Address Given Hi to all at LW. It is now one year since we adopted Bruce and he is the best dog ever. Owning a dog is a big committment, but the rewards are immeasurable. Keep up the great work, you do an amazing job.
Apr 25, 2008 at 07:58 kathryn wright (KJWRIGHT001@YAHOO.CO.UK) bailey is doing well we adopted him four weeks ago holly our cat aand hime get on well
Apr 25, 2008 at 04:11 Helen Spilman ( Hi, just received the latest newsletter, great reading, keep up the good work.  Helen, Brian, Ollie, Louise & of course Roly xx
Apr 24, 2008 at 18:22 Edana ( I\'ve adopted my brilliant dog but love to keep looking on the web site.
Apr 21, 2008 at 17:49 Frank ( Very informative site. Keep up the good work
Apr 10, 2008 at 12:41 Hazel and David Barnes. ( Dear June, We are already on your books and have fostered two dogs through you. The first, Bramble for nine months and had to be put to sleep because of a cancer on his face, and the second, Max who we have had for five years. He came to us from Hull via some kennels at Doncaster. He has been a lovely dog in every way, but suufered a series of fits recently and is at present on medication. During the last few days his condition has worsened rapidly and he is blind in his left eye and has lost the strength in his back legs, especially the left-hand one. On the advice from the vet we are regretfully having to put him to sleep tomorrow(11.04.08).  We hope to be able to have another Labrador as soon as possible, but will contact you by telephone shortly.  Kind Regards, Hazel & David Barnes, Stanton-Lees, Matlock. 01629732372, 
Apr 09, 2008 at 14:57 Ann Brown ( It is 3 years to the day since Oscar our now 4 yearold black Lab came to live with us. He is just so wonderful and although he was supposed to be quite destructive he really is not. After that first day when he ran in and out of the house at great speed, chased the cat upstairs etc and I wondered what we had done we have not looked back. He quickly learnt what he could and could not do (he has never tried to go upstairs again) and is a joy and a delight and we wonder why we waited so long before having a dog.  So many people love him including some who used to be scared of dogs. A friend who is not too well volunteered to walk him a few days a week and realises that it is not only Oscar who benefits from the regular fresh air, exercise and meeting people!  So if you are thinking of adopting a dog from Labrador Welfare I would recommend that you take the plunge - as long as you have thought it all through carefully.
Mar 20, 2008 at 16:50 linda hanson ( What a fantastic job you do!!!!!
Mar 19, 2008 at 16:29 Helen ( Michelle, you did what you had to for your child I would do the same, at least you know he went to a good home
Mar 18, 2008 at 14:16 Michele ( I watched Crufts the other night. Felt awful because it was the first time for thirty years that I haven\'t been an owner. We had to give up our beautiful boy because our son\'s allergies were getting worse. It was confirmed last week that we had done the right thing as our son was taken to hospital because of anaphylaxis again.  June and the Gang are FAB!
Mar 15, 2008 at 20:59 Malcolm ( a good site for a brilliant cause
Mar 09, 2008 at 06:48 Serg ( I have been a member of Labrador Welfare for over 10 years and congratulate you on the work you do to help re-home this beautiful breed. Like the new website and hope it brings in lots of new members and much needed money.
Mar 01, 2008 at 13:17 Margaret Blackwell ( Lovely site the pictures and info are well explained, looking at adopting soon.
Feb 14, 2008 at 15:54 milos mummy (ema) ( had milo 14 months now & wouldn\'t change him for the world he\'s my childrens best friend,& recently becoming a childminder he has lots of little friends & loves the attention the more the better,he\'s enjoying his walks in the country & most favouritely swimming in lakes,rivers & the sea I could go on forever,he\'s the best decision I ever made & who knows maybe one day he\'ll get a four legged friend.
Jan 17, 2008 at 14:25 Karen Hook ( Came across your website by accident and cant believe it must be fate! Looking for a dog for my son 8 years and he says it has to be a black lab as my brother has one and we look after her during their hols. I was thinking of a pup to grow up with him but think a youngish trained dog may be better. Can you advise and possibly help>?
Jan 04, 2008 at 15:34 lucy tinsley ( happy new year to all at labrador welfare and thanks for letting us adopt chester. he has quickly become a much loved member of the family and loves his walks. he also loved the beach and sea, will have to try and take him more often. really made my christmas and my family complete
