Hi, i am looking for advice/direction in my quest to find a adult female Labrador. In Feb 2020 my lovely Dad passed away. I took ownership of his female dogs, a yellow lab of 11 yrs and Springador 14 yrs. Those dogs help me cope with my grief and the isolation of Lockdown. Taking them on was the most rewarding thing I have ever done. The 3 of us discovered many different walks. It was lovely way to get talking to people. I felt so proud of those girls. Dad had them as pets primarily, but took them on many beating days. He had instilled enough training in them to be obedient dogs. I carried on doing dummy retrieves with them. Very sadly both dogs have passed away. The springador in Nov due to ulcerated Tumor and the yellow Lab this Feb due to internal bleed. With both dogs euthanasia was Kindest and only option. . I was with them both of course, at the end of their lives. I was devastated with the loss of both, that bit more with the last loss. My Dad had several Labs over the decades. I went on many many walks with them all. When my Dads health declined, I bonded that bit more with the 2 dogs and in the months they lived with me, a very strong loving bond. As I live alone I do not want a puppy, I really want to find a sweet natured adult female Lab. I am registered on some canine sites, with my requirements and what I can offer a dog. In fact I was contacted today by soneone, who has 2 Labs to be rehomed. This time I want to only take on 1 dog. I love walking and am keeping this up, but would be so much better with a Lab. I am in urban area, but there is a lot of greenary, paths and I am in walking distance of countryside. I have a secure decent sized garden. I am 5/10 mins walk from a dog trainer, who does Fun gun dog training. The vet is 5 mins drive or walkable. I know a lot of Lab owners including brother for socialising. Many people have said I gave the 2 dogs a very loving and happy life They gave me that just as much or more. I can be patient to find a dog, whereby the owner is confident I will give their dog a good home.

I think I've seen you post elsewhere? This seems a familiar story to me, so sorry if I've got it wrong but I'm sure I've seen something similar posted on a facebook group. Your best chance is to get in touch with a Labrador specific rescue and explain your situation, and hopefully they will help you from there.

Breeders sometimes rehome older dogs.
