This week I had a chance to lend my lens and take some awesome pictures for a Labrador Rescue named Duncan. He needed some new pictures as his originals just did not capture how handsome and sweet he is.

Labrador Friends of the South Duncan-100 (1)


6 year old, very calm sweet boy available for adoption from Labrador Friends of the South . Attached to people and dog friendly. He was surrendered to us by his family and he still does not understand why. His heart is slowly mending and he is ready to find a permanent family to call his own. Duncan gets very attached to people and will make his new owner very happy.

Duncan is doing very well. His broken heart is mending and he’s beginning to trust again. Although, he was an outside dog with his previous family, he obviously spent time with them indoors as well. Duncan has needed quite a bit of reassurance that he is loved and welcome in the house — it took quite a bit of effort to get him to go up and down the stairs (I suspect he wasn’t allowed to do so in his previous home). He is sweet-natured and great with kids and other dogs. He enjoys an occasional round of fetch outside, a walk around the neighborhood, and chomping at the water coming out of the hose. Duncan is happiest when he is with people and just wants to make his people happy.

Lend Your Lens

If you are good at photography, I would encourage you to Lend Your Lens to a Local rescue. They can always and I mean always use good pictures for their animals. Good pictures always gets dogs adopted faster than those with bad pictures.

    Hi Antonio, Thanks so much for your beautiful pictures, being a Lab Mom to a rescue myself, I know how much it means to this fantastic souls to have a loving home. My girl Ali came into our home when she was 6 years old from being abandoned by a Puppy Mill, she is now 14 and we just know how difficult it was for her to adapt, needless to say, our Chocolate Lab Spencer helped her a lot and still to this day takes the best care of her as do we… Thank you! Ali, Spencer, Christina and Dan

    What beautiful coloring this Lab has! Thanks for all the great photos. I hope he finds a loving home. I had bred yellow Labs for years, but as I got older and had a back injury, I had to give it up. We have an English Lab and have adopted a Lab mix. Both dogs bring us great joy. I have adopted several other dogs over the yeas and find they give such complete devotion to their new family. What a rewarding thing to do when you adopt a pet. Wish I could do it more often!!
