    have you googled to see if there are rescues in your area?
    Does it have to be a puppy? what is your upper age limit? There are not many young babies in rescue especially not chocolate ones (mostly black, some yellow) but if you don't mind a dog that is closer to the 1 year old mark your options will increase tremedously.

    Thank you for your reply, Tanya. We have gone through local rescues in the past for our puppies. My husband has wanted a chocolate lab for quite some time. This is part of my gift to him for our 25th wedding anniversary. That's why I'm set on a puppy.

    I would get in touch with those rescues and let them know you are looking. And keep googling to see if you find other rescues. Even a few hours away by drive.

    Again, what is your upper age limit? Is it ok if the dog is mix?

    Check with Pet adoption: Want a dog or cat? Adopt a pet on Petfinder constantly.

    Again, finding an 8-16 week old chocolate lab (pure-ish) in rescue is going to take time and patience.. There are very few of them (there are more puppies but MOST puppies I see in rescue of that age bracket are black and yellow). There are quite a few chocolate LABS looking for a home but only when they pass the cute puppy stage (so 6 months and older).

    YOU need to do research if you want to find a breeder. No one is going to just tell you about one. And if you really want a good puppy from a good breeder, you better be flexible on when you get the pup and how far you have to drive for that pup. Doubtful you will find one in your town.

    oh wait - did you want a rescue puppy from a shelter or rescue or a dog from a breeder? I assumed you were looking for a rescue because you posted in the rescue section but am wondering if I was wrong...if you are looking for a breeder then I have a whole whack of other advice for you

    if you went with a breeder hopefully they have done all the clearances on both parents and prove them in a venue. Or better yet I hope you found a rescue.
