    Thank You from LRRoC

    Labrador Retriever Rescue of Cincinnati, Inc. would like to thank everyone who has supported our efforts over the years by adopting great canine companions as well as donations to help the great dogs in need of our help. We have been privileged to assist these great dogs and blessed to meet the great folks they have led us to.

    We have made the difficult decision to retire LRRoC due to a change in life direction. We will keep our website open as a beacon for our adopted dogs that may need us in the future. In addition, our e-mail address ( and will also remain active so that adopters can contact us when necessary. However, we will no longer be taking in dogs to rehome.

    We encourage you to visit our mentors and friends at the following Labrador Rescues. They have been rescuing Labradors longer than LRRoC and we have worked closely with them over the years. Our wish is that you will support them with donations and adoptions as you have for us in the past.

    Kentucky Lab Rescue
    Miami Valley OKI Lab Rescue & Referral

    Thank you again for eleven great years and always remember to adopt and support your local rescues and shelters.

    LabraPic of the Day!

    Rocky (fka LRRoC's Sparky) enjoying cuddle time with his toys!
    From Sparky's adoptive family:


    1) He loves to play fetch!! We will throw his toys and he will run and get them and bring them back! Although we are still working on getting him to let go of the toy once he brings it back.

    2) Once he finds the squeaker in his toy squirrel its game over and thatís all you will hear for the next few minutes, ha-ha we think its funny!

    3) He's getting better about bath time and doesnít shake nearly as much as the first time we gave him a bath.

    4) He sleeps in our room and hasn't had any accidents in there (lucky us!) (knock on wood)

    5) The other night our friends came over with their 11 month old baby boy, who got a hold of a bowl of chips and spilled quite a few on the floor, needless to say Rocky was there to help clean up! Donít worry this isnít a frequent occurrence.

    6) He loves to cuddle on the couch with us while we watch T.V

    7) He loves to chase the leaves outside on windy days :)
    8) Every night he sleeps with a stuffed giraffe we got him - He uses it as a pillow!
    9) He's learning the words "no", "drop-it", "leave-it", "home", "sit", "come", "fetch" and "play" and wags his tail when he hears "good boy/Rocky"

    10) He makes us so very happy!

    Roxy has transformed into a very affectionate dog...

    Sixth in our Series of Who Saved Who - From Rescue Dog to Family Dog

    Roxy has transformed into a very affectionate dog...

    I adopted Roxy, originally Echo Blue, on May 1st 2009. When we first brought her into our home she was always attempting to escape out the front door. While we have a fenced in backyard, and walk her on a leash, she sneakily managed to escape several times. It was soon learned that Roxy had not been spayed (a scar thought to be a spay scar turned out to be from a previous surgery). LRRoC contacted a local vet to perform the operation. We kept our fingers crossed that this would help our crafty escape artist settle more easily into her new environment. Unfortunately, it was still not smooth sailing. Just one day after her surgery, Roxy slipped out the front door and ran with the neighborís black lab for nearly a mile before I caught up to her - all the while I running barefoot down the highway!

    It took a great deal of patience, but after 6 months of walks with a 30 foot training leash, Roxy is finally trusted to go into the woods freely. She now works without a leash and comes when called. Roxy loves the woods! She and her two black lab friends, Coda and Zeppy, enjoy daily walks followed by a swim in our pool to cool off. Roxy has transformed into a very affectionate dog and remains by my side at all times. She loves to travel and rides smoothly (well, with the occasional bark at unwanted motorcycles and large semi-trucks)! I built her a platform for my extended cab pick-up and she rides, sitting behind me, while resting her head on my shoulder as I drive. Roxy has joined me running in a couple of races and does very well. The occasional potty breaks add to our overall time, but she still enjoys it as do I. I have attached some pictures of her over the last two years.
