    Yes.
    I adopted a 4 year old untrained boy and almost 2 years ago rescued a 5 year old untrained girl. Both are good.What you put into them they pay you back 100 times over.

    Absolutely! It saves you from those needle sharp baby teeth and you are saving the life of a wonderful dog. A year old Lab is still a good bit puppy and Labs are so eager to please which will help tremendously in the training department. Definitely sign up for an obedience class as it will go a long way in developing a bond between you and the dog. Good luck and thank you for saving a life!

    Labs are extremely adaptable, and at that age is still very much puppy. Definitely go for it!

    generally speaking yes. i would recommend you meet hte dog first and be honest about YOUR abilities. A one year old dog is still quite young and able to learn but if they have had no socialisation and training then it will be a lot more work (in which case you need to be committed to working thru the issues, if you are not then do not take the dog). IF the dog has been somewhat socialised and train then it shouldn't be a problem at all.

    I recommend signing up for obediences asap after taking the dog on (even if they have some basic commands already - it is good for bonding and building a relationship) and set the rules from day 1.

    As everyone said absolutely. I adopted my lab at 11 months, untrained and he adjusted quickly.

    no one can answer this question without meeting the dog and assessing it. it depends on the individual dog and how they were raised. generally less likely with a lab but i have met nasty labs.

    I hope this works out well for both of you. He/she is a nice looking Lab.
