Looking for a young yellow or chocolate lab. Must, must like children. Must be friendly to other dogs, no excessive barking, must like the car. This dog will be with a couple in late thirties with an 8 year old child.
Must be able to go running, biking, swimming, camping, all of which will require time in a car. Must be good temperament and housebroken.
Not sure if this is the proper way to do this, but let me know if I should add anything else.
One could got to http://www.petfinder.com/ , and fill out the search on the left side of the main page; see what they have available.
Or one could google "Labrador Retriever Rescue, your state" and see what google/whatever search engine finds.
Or go to your local 'dog pound/whatever' and ask if there is a Labrador Retriever Rescue that they deal with or could recommend to you.
A rescue organization usually 'fosters' a dog in a home situation for awhile so that they know a lot more about a dog's personality/adaptability than a dog pound would.
Wishing you good luck in your search.
